Remember when Russia violated Turkish airspace and after multiple warnings their bomber jet was shot down? Well I haven't heard about any Russian jets straying over into Turkey since.

On one hand you have Russian jets posing a potential risk to lots of people and equipment and a also doing risky manoeuvres, but on the other hand they're not at war so it's known to be a bluff.

The US reaction seems to be fairly limp though.. this is kinda the equivalent of someone sighting a gun on you, but saying "well the safety was on and I wouldn't shoot you"... something like that?
