A Turkish F-16 shot down a Russian SU-24 bomber. Rumors and videos are circulating. It’s not clear whether the pilots are alive or not. Vladimir Putin made a statement linking Turkey with ISIS and claiming a “stab in the back.” A number of videos circulating on social media are from earlier incidents. This story is developing. The New York Times and Washington Post are probably the most reliable sources for summaries for the next day or so. And no, World War III is not about to begin. Russia and Turkey have too many commercial interests in common. Putin’s statement does not mention military reprisals. Photo: CNN

The cruise missiles Russia has been using in Syria. (Not part of the current shooting down.)

The threat is already inside. It’s not Syrian refugees that are the biggest threat to Americans. This article discusses terror threats. We might also consider shootings in Minneapolis and Louisiana in the past day or two.

Long read on the situation in Ukraine. And another on the situation in the Donbas.

If North Korea isn’t Communist, what is it?

It’s official: There will be no Iranian ICBM in 2015.
