    So, thank the "Islamists" we'll hopefully enjoy another decade of Sharia.

    After "Islamists" are finished with Turkey, we might send them to USA so USA can also have debt-free growth whilst paying off already existing debt.

    Video from UK Foreign Minister about restructuring of UK's diplomatic corpse in the world
    BBC - Democracy Live - Future Diplomatic Network statement: William Hague

    UK will decrease its Diplomats in European embassies.
    The "substantial expansion" of the UK's diplomatic strength will be in China, India, Brazil, Turkey, Mexico and Indonesia.
    In Turkey the Embassy in Ankara will grow, the Consulate in Istanbul will grow.
    And new Consulates in Anatolian cities will be established.

    When PM David Cameron spoke in Ankara about Gaza, he called it a prison camp.
    Do you think, he called it that way because he will score back at home in the UK?

    European Commission
    http://ec.europa.eu/enlargement/pdf/european_energy_policy/turkeys_energy_strategy_en.pdf

    People like Annie think, that Turkey is an object which they can move around.
    So they think and regularly imply Turkey should be thrown out of NATO or declared some kind of "pariah"-state.

    Darling, you gonna re-route those pipelines, too, of which are more to come...?
    You think, that Oil and Gas from Iraq will make its long way through Persian-Gulf over Suez-Canal to European markets? :eusa_angel:
