Actually we are offering the Israelis a free ticket to learn everything about the possibilities of Cyprus, that could be very useful to them in case they would engage in a war with Turkey!
It could be also useful under other scenarios, it's a well known "secret" that in the past Cyprus was the #1 candidate place for the Israelis to form their own state.
If Turkey ever attacks us, or attacks the gas platforms in our EOZ, it's certain they would do nothing to help.
Are we total idiots after all??

They were still flying around after dark last night. The dog thought the Russians were coming and wouldn't stop barking (Yapping) at them.

They also seem to be flying very low? We can see the Kouris valley from the front porch and they were disappearing down through the hills to the left and then exiting right at great speed over the dam and then climbing out over the Limassol old port area and sea front.


I have never seen F16's flying, that would be a very exciting experience.
I saw some Mirajes in the past and they were flying at such an amazing speed, that would disappear over the horizon at the blink of an eye.
Those Mirajes were flying low too, about 100 meters from ground level.... :!:

Both countries are served. Cyprus gets to test its air defenses against modern fighter jets, and the Israelis get to test Russian air defenses.

The question is, would Israel or Egypt want Turkey one step closer to them and their gas fields?

Good point however crooks seem to strike deals between them quite often. The Israelis and the Turks already did it during WWII.
As for Egypt I think it doesn't count much Vs those 2.

History has taught us, you can never trust Greeks and Turks. They have no honor.

Cyprus has no real friends.
Israel remains to be seen.......

I would not rule out Greece, Egypt and Israel supporting Cyprus if it served their interests. There was a mutual security defence pact made between them not too long ago. The only reason why this was made was because of the rhetoric and behaviour of Turkey.

I dont think it is in any of theirs or the EU's or Britans or the US's interests to allow Turkey to occupy the whole of Cyprus.

I am talking about support,

Like air support, anti air support, logistical and supply support, armour support, weapons support, intelligence support.

They will act like flankers and a brace so Cyprus can hold the line and push forwards.
