    dont be so ungrateful , dont forget the missile shields in malatya and incirlik air base

    turkey is the most democratic friend in the middle east. this is why you cant get everything from turkish parliament

    and it was junior bush's fault to believe in erdoğan's promises about ıraq ,what is more,he was not the head of turkish government yet officially when they agreed about ıraq

    US officials believe Iran sanctions will fail, making military action likely | World news | The Guardian
    Well Iran is currently in discussions with the IAEA so its a bit early to describe the sanctions as 'failing'

    Iran "winning" on oil sanctions -


    Tue Feb 21, 2012*

    (Reuters) - An increase in world oil prices has more than compensated Iran for revenues lost to lower crude exports because of sanctions imposed by the West, the head of the world's leading oil trader said Tuesday.

    Perhaps we should have worked to develop alternative energy sources and conservation instead of sitting on our ass for the last 40 years since we passed peak oil in this country.

    I agree. I don't understand why other sources of energy have not been developed yet.

    Catawa: Peak Oil was a scam.. it was a political strategy to import more ME oil in the late 1950s and early 1960s..

    This is all tied in with the IAEA visit as well.

    "Iran's Foreign Ministry also said Tuesday that visiting inspectors won't be able to inspect the country's nuclear facilities. An International Atomic Energy Agency team arrived in Tehran this week hoping to monitor Iran's nuclear program. Instead it will only hold talks with officials about ways to cooperate in the future."

    Because everything that has been tried, so far, has been unworkable. Maybe we should have taken a more common sense approach like...developing out own natural resources.

    Drilling bans just don't seem to be helping, in the big picture.

    How do you explain all the new oilfields that have been discovered over the past few years?
