al jazeera's senior political analyst, marwan bishara. since we last spoke, recep tayyip erdogan has spoke out. vladimir putin spoke out saying why has russia and syria - pucking back from allegations that he is buying illegal oil. he says if russia claims to be in syria, because the president asked him to be there, that that's on illegal administration, on and on and on. we are getting tough talk from vladimir putin that seems to escalate. the turkish side is backing down. what is this all about. >> the turkish side is not backing down. it is not escalating. they slapped a bunch of sanctions. but ankara did not reciprocate that. the turks are trying to downplay - they are trig to
6:03 am
don't play. the turks are not interested in russia escalating the situation in syria against turkey, the russians have started to move in support of the kurdish forces in northern syria, that turkey is quite worried about. there's a number of things that turkey is not interested in escalating in russia. having said that, vladimir putin is not exactly the parr knew i can madmen that some characterise him, or the sort of subtle statesman that you expect of a world leader. this speech was a cornerstone speech. as i mentioned earlier, this was a george w. bush moment for vladimir putin, he portrayed the world as a world of insecurity
6:04 am
and terrorism with russia and russian values needing to lead. basically saying to turkey and others, you are with us or the terrorists. >> drawing a line in the sand. >> exactly. >> that is something turkey and others do not accept. neither from the russian leader or anyone, especially turkey suffering from terrorism along the years, including from i.s.i.l., does not accept the lecturing, the sermon heard from vladimir putin. >> let's talk about i.s.i.l., and we want to pick it up on the other side for you. the air campaigns in i.s.i.l. are expanding. the u.k. launched air strikes on i.s.i.l. the targets in syria, hours after parliament backed the government plan to expand the mission. britain's defence minister said that these bombers had been hitting the omar oil field. that is in the east. the aim is to strike a blow on oil revenues, which i.s.i.l. depend on to fund its braigss.

british fighter jets took off from an air base in cyprus, hours after the parliamentary vote. they vote in favour of the air strikes, following divisions among politicians, and street protests. the air campaign continues to get bigger. u.s. secretary of state john kerry said today that this campaign against i.s.i.l. has no chance of success without ground troops, and specifically says that the ground troops need to be syrians or arabs. why has there been no coordination so far to get ground troops going if everyone agrees that's what it's going to take to defeat i.s.i.l.? >> simply because it's wishful thinking to think that this can be tirned around so quickly unfortunate the west in particular of the so-called international coalition is in denial over the facts that aerial bombardment is not enough. they are not taking the
6:06 am
necessary actions in order to supplement their own strategy. we have seen a political process that has seen the lights. that is going to evolve over the next few weeks, beginning in saudi arabia, where the senior opposition is meeting. they are hoping that after the meeting with the syrian olympics and the unity under one -- opposition and the unity under one programme, that may be that would rally the troops in syria. the british estimated that there is - i stand to be corrected - that there is some 70,000 forces against bashar al-assad and i.s.i.l. in syria that are, in a large part, from the free syrian army. now, of course, it remains to be seen whether these forces are
6:07 am
capable of dealing with the situation on the ground. they have not gotten the necessary support. people say i.s.i.l. needs to go, but no one is providing the syrians with the instrument to do that. whether they do na in the last several weeks remains to be seen. >> four years of talk. marwan bishara, thank you police in the u.s. are trying to determine the motive for a shooting attack on a social services center in california, leaving 14 dead. the two heavy armed attackers were shot dead by police, named as 28-year-old syed farrook and tashfe, n. malic. >> a pivotal moment. a bullet riddled vehicle with two suspected killers dead inside after a gun battle with plixes are police.

6:09 am
shot. megan sehive was one of those evacuated from the inland regional center complex when the mayhem erupted. >> we were told to come out with our hands up. that was scary, but we were altogether and we came out. we cooperated because we wanted to get out. we didn't know for sure if there was anybody inside. we wanted to get out and get to our families. >> acting on a tip, police and fbi agents went to a resident in the nearby towns. people inside fled in a back s.u.v. and exchanged fire with police. police blocked them in. the deadly shoot out followed. one police officer was wounded. his injuries were not life threatening. police named the suspects. and said they were not sure of the relationship with each other. police emphasise that the pair's motives are not known.
