As chairman of the Human Rights Foundation, Garry Kasparov is no friend of Vladimir Putin, and as a world chess champion, he’s trained his mind to think several steps ahead of the competition. Therefore, it’s hardly bragging when he notes that it was almost two months ago when he predicted that a Turkish pilot might put spectator President Obama into an uncomfortable position.

As Twitchy reported this morning, Turkish pilots in F-16s shot down a Russian SU-24 bomber on the border of Turkey and Syria after reportedly warning several times that the bomber was over Turkish airspace.

It’s a shame the U.S. State Department’s #UnitedForUkraine signs and selfies just weren’t enough to convince Putin to live by the power of hashtag. Instead, he rolled his tanks right over several of President Obama’s red lines into Ukraine.

Russian generals haven’t been shy about telling American pilots to clear out of Syrian airspace either.

So what’s next for Putin and for Obama?
