BEST FOR TURKEY AND RUSSIA TO SIT DOWN AND TALK ABOUT WHAT REALLY HAPPENED BECAUSE...THINGS MAY NOT BE WHAT THEY SEEM.
If both sides are ready to fight over this to the final end, then they need to be sure that they have the facts right, or they would be fools to their own people for having sacrificed so much for something so wrong.
It is natural for each side to trust its own pilots, its own technical data, and its own analysis.
This is just the beginning. The next step is to understand what really happened by discussing with the opposite side the data that they have which could contradicts one's own data. Each side should consider the "facts" it holds to be "data" rather than "facts" until the other side's data are reviewed.
This is extremely important to avoid unnecessary distrust, disgust, and aggression.
Since Turkey was the one that admitted to shooting down the Russian plane, it has the obligation to share with the Russian ambassador the "data" it had of having warned the Russian pilot of his entering Turkish air space, and Russia should objectively evaluate it, because there is always the possibility of human error in the surviving co-pilot's recollection of where the plane was and what they heard or did not hear. Also, there is the overwhelming need for the co-pilot to avoid blame for the disaster, and there is much to gain in blaming Turkey for not warning them. He will even get a medal for it, think about that.
On the other hand, the Turkish pilots might have warned the Russian plane after they had already hit it, and kept a record of their TEN warnings, which could not have been possible to deliver in the short 17 seconds that the Russian plan purportedly entered Turkish air space. Again, the "data" must be scrutinized as to authenticity, locality, timing, and synchronicity.
Another possibility is that of a technical glitch or dysfunction, accidental or induced (by one's own plane or by some external intervention), to cause the "TEN warnings" of the Turkish pilots not to reach the Russian plane. Could these messages have been blocked from being emitted due to faulty circurity in the Turkish plane, a software override by some external controllers, interference by the stealth or anti-stealth technology of the Turkish or Russian planes, by the weather, by ground radars, or by some unknown technology, etc? Are there or are there not third parties to the breakdown in the transmission or reception or both of the TEN warnings, supposedly given by the Turkish pilots to the Russian plane?
With so many un-answered questions, it would be foolish for Russia to blame Turkey for the outcome, and likewise, foolish for Turkey to dismuss Russian anger as mere emotionality and irrationality, or as sheer lack of respect for the sovereignty of Turkish air space.
Indeed, if WWIII were to erupt as a result of this incident, one can say that never will have so many people been destroyed, because of so little facts.
