    Some facts in the beginning:

    - Russia is Turkey's No.1 trade partner
    - Turkey is Russia's No.4 trade partner (behind Germany, Italy, Netherlands)

    Medvedev is in Turkey, and investment agreements worth 25 Billion $ were signed:
    - 20 Billion $ for nuclear power plant in Mersin-Akkuyu
    - 3 Billion $ construction of Samsun-Ceyhan oil pipeline
    - Oil refinery in Ceyhan

    Investment in joint Russian-Turkish projects to top $25 bln | Top Russian news and analysis online | 'RIA Novosti' newswire

    What makes me personally happy is, that Russia and Turkey abolished Visa requirements. That will boost inter-cultural exchange.
    About 2 Million Russians visit Turkey every year, in last 10 years Turks have married 200 Thousand Russian women:

    The Dollar was scrapped in 2009 in bilateral trade.
    Russia now proposes to set-up a joint Russian-Turkish State Bank for boosting commercial activities:

    Mr. Medvedev saying in Ankara:
    "This agreement opens a new page in our cooperation...
    Our talks today showed that Turkey and Russia are strategic partners not only in words but in deeds"

    Mr. Erdogan saying:
    "Turkey and Russia aim to ramp up trade volume to 100 billion dollars over the next five years."

    Be very careful when dealing with Russia


    As for Russia, they regard Turkey as something best served with yams, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce.

    Russia just cut off the US mideast domination strategy at the ankles. They now have a strategic agreement with Turkey, Syria, and Iran.

    Right now the Russians have the US in "check". The door to US geostrategic control of central asia has just been slammed shut, unless something VERY dramatic were to take place.

    If you take a look at a map, Iran was the last major obstacle in the way of complete US domination of the crossroads between Asia, Europe, and Africa, with 70% of the worlds known gas and oil under their feet. Now that the new triangle has formed with Russia backing Iran and Syria, and Turkey leaning east away from the US and Europe, the progress made over the last 10 years is all but lost.

    Unless, as I've already stated, something were to happen to "justify" an all-out assault by US or US-supported players in the region.

    I guess it's no wonder that we're pushing for additional sanctions against Iran even when they're cooperating with the NNPT, the UN, and with other nations to offload their enriched uranium. Russia has just outplayed us in the region and something big needs to happen if we want to regain the lost ground.

    That's the same Russia that fire-bombed Chechnya, slaughtering 20,000 Chechens in the process?

    Seems Turkey, responsible for the slaughter of 1 million Armenians, and Russia are "partners" in crime.
    Turkey is going down.

    And, Russia is guilty of war crimes and one of the biggest violators of human rights in the world, whicih doesn't say much for your moral compass.

    Yes - the same Russia. And the same Turkey.

    Also the same Russia whom Kissinger has recently been courting at the Kremlin, and whose previous KGB leader and President has spent alone time with our most recent past President to "talk Turkey" in private.

    My read on this is that we're seeing a redrawing of the lines by the finance globalists. No doubt, at some point or other. it will be our tax dollars and our children who are drawn into the fire that will be lit in order to force the next order into place.

    Excuse me, but nowhere did I offer support for any activities conducted by the Russians. Shooting the messenger will do nothing to change the circumstances. I promise.
