    Okay Medusa.....I have seen those Maps. Thats not US Policy tho. Also it shows the West Bank Undetermined. Plus I don't see all those countries losing Land they have. Not all of them in Red. Moreover the Col said he was draconian about what he had come up with. US thinking is to get Turkey to be a Major Player in the Region.

Alot of people in the world despise our intervention, but they are more than happy to take our money. I'd personally rather stop the funding, and leave other countries alone altogether.

    Ah ha.. You have hit the nail on the head.. Israel and Iran have to want a just peace as much as we want it for them, otherwise we are just getting jerked around by both.

    Despite its might and shear strength, geography literally works against U.S. naval power in the Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf. The relative narrowness of the Persian Gulf makes it like a channel, at least in a strategic and military context. Figuratively speaking, the aircraft carriers and warships of the U.S. are confined to narrow waters or are closed in within the coastal waters of the Persian Gulf. [See map above]


    Yes but this is not about Turkey. It's about what going to take place with Iran. Even tho Mya was focusing on the Canadians pulling up out of dodge.

    Making the Strait of Hormuz Redundant to Weaken Iran?

    The entire world knows the importance of the Strait of Hormuz and Washington and its allies are very well aware that the Iranians can militarily close it for a significant period of time. This is why the U.S. has been working with the GCC countries – Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, and the U.A.E. – to re-route their oil through pipelines bypassing the Strait of Hormuz and channelling GCC oil directly to the Indian Ocean, Red Sea, or Mediterranean Sea. Washington has also been pushing Iraq to seek alternative routes in talks with Turkey, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

    Both Israel and Turkey have also been very interested in this strategic project. Ankara has had discussions with Qatar about setting up an oil terminal that would reach Turkey via Iraq.

    The Turkish government has attempted to get Iraq to link its southern oil fields, like Iraq’s northern oil fields, to the transit routes running through Turkey. This is all tied to Turkey’s visions of being an energy corridor and important lynchpin of transit.....snip~

    Although Turkey would become an Energy Corridor and the Lynchpin of the Plan!
