NPOV[edit]

I've only had time to do a quick once-over, and won't be able to do anything with this tonight (sadly), but it looks to have pro-Turkish bias problems. The bit about leading the efforts to remove al-Assad in particular seems... iffy. Also, a few days ago the Turks were claiming the aircraft was in international airspace. Maybe I've missed an update (in which case I apologise), but I'm not convinced this plane was in Turkish airspace if even the Turks aren't prepared to claim it was. In any event, the whole incident was disputed with Syria claiming it was a legitimate response to a misunerstanding.
I haven't much sympathy for the Syrians here, but that doesn't allow me to ignore their side of all this. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 23:16, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

To me, the bit about Turkey being in the forefront of efforts etc. looks fundamentally non-neutral, in the sense of presenting as fact an assessment that should be attributed. Indeed, the following sentence attempts to defend the claim, which to my mind makes it especially clear the claim should be attributed per WN:NPOV. --Pi zero (talk) 23:22, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
