Erdogan is upset because UAE has agreed to have diplomatic relationship with Israel and accuse the UAE as stabbing the Palestinians in the back.

Wait a minute, didn’t Turkey have a diplomatic relationship with Israel for decades along with Erdogan have a personal relationship with Israeli leaders? :D

Wait a minute, didn’t Erdogan have a personal relationship with Assad for decades taking holidays together, but today, Assad is a criminal? :D

Wait a minute, didn‘t Erdogan and Gülen have a personal relationship for decades, and now Gülen is a terrorist? :D

As for Trump, apart from all his unethical dealings with Erdogan, he is just a cunt, who is violating the Constitution and the Bill of Rights of the American citizens and now is trying to interfere with the next presidential elections by preventing Mail voting. :roll:


One country I really really miss is UAE. If only I could just get on a plane and go over there for a couple of months.

I’ve really got a lot of time for that country. Such a gorgeous country, gorgeous people.

And as for Trump! If he is violating the constitution, then impeach him. Oh, they already tried that and got nowhere.

Turkish politics is a cesspool.

Don't matter what issue you pick, its full of hypocrisy and b.s..

Here turkey is, now trying to dictate to the UAE about establishing diplomatic relations with Israel, and threatening to sever diplomatic relations with it.

While maintaining embassies in israel and trying to restore and improve her diplomatic relations and commercial activity with israel.

Using the Palestinians as the excuse.

Basically, Turkey is trying to hold the UAE to a higher moral standard than herself. And she has a problem with it while being a hypocrite.

Its not even funny how delusion Turkish politics is. Its completely devoid virtue.

Turkey is now accusing France of acting like a bully in the region,

"France especially should avoid steps that will increase tensions," Al Jazeera English cited Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu as saying during a visit to Switzerland on Friday.

"They will not get anywhere by acting like bullies, whether in Libya, the northeast of Syria, in Iraq or the Mediterranean," he added

The Turks accuse everyone else of what they are doing.

All I read that is being said from Turkish politicians is a projection of their thoughts and actions on to others.

Everything that comes out of their mouths is inverted narrative and is a lie.

But look all this because the Oruc Reis is in and out of Greeces and Turkeys official EEZ. The Yavuz is clearly in Cyprus EEZ and has been for some time.

Everything is being focused on the Oruc Reis but there are a multitude of problems that have been mounting up.

What about the illegal occupation and colonization of Cyprus for the past 46 years? Dialogue has proven useless and the problem is insurmountable because Turkey and the TC's dont want to give up what they stole. its that simple. They want to bully Cyprus until they get their (wrong oppressive way) is realised.

There is lots of noise now being made about this "invasion" but Turkey has been maintaining an illegal occupation for decades in north Cyprus.

And she is initiating new ones in Syria and probably Libya as well.

Turkey is a despot that should be cut down to size. That is the only solution left.

The EU should implement severe sanctions by the next formal council of ministers meeting. it seems that such solutions are the only ones left.

The Greek Limnos Ship is an ex Dutch Kortenaer Class.

Extremely capable ship with updated sensors and capable of launching Harpoon Anti Shipping Missiles, and Rim 7 SAMs

The collision with a Turkish Ship did take place with the Greek Limnos taking evasive action to avoid a collision. The bow of the Greek Limnos rammed the after helicopter deck of the Turkish Ship.

The Greek Ship sustained little damage. But the Turkish ship sustained damage to its propellers, helicopter deck and took water rendering it inoperable for many months.

The Greek Limnos continues to remain at sea and even join the US fleet south of Crete for exercises with the United States and French Navy.

The damage purported by the Turkish Propaganda media is nothing more than the anchor.

The Greek Ministry of Defence released time stamped photos of the Greek Limnos the very next day at sea.

:D

Here is a photo of the Greek Limnos taken the following day with a French Ship in the background. I think it's a French ship or a US Wasp Class,

EDIT: It's definitely a French Amphibious Helicopter Dock.

So at the moment it's:

hellenic Navy 1 Vs Turkish Pirates 0

If Turkey wants a fight then the Greeks must be prepared to give them a fight and start sending some ships one way to the ocean floor.

Hellenic Navy has nothing to be afraid of. They can defeat the Trks and then some. The Greek Government and people must now prepare for war.

Greece has the support of the US, France, Israel, Egypt.

Even the UK did not veto the Greek requests for sanctions against Turkey so the conditions for Greece have never been better.

the time for talks are now over. Now it's time for the talking to be done from behind an OTO Melara.

...indeed, as Navies go Greece is a credible equal to Turkey; but by land it is another story.

Those S-400s may come in handy, how many more will Russia sell them?

...Armenia makes a nice distraction, Turkey's enemies are everywhere.

What war with who; when, it remains his choosing.

...there are two (three) years left for Turkey's Centennial (and the next election): timing is everything.
