    A hundred years of the Turk dealing with himself is enough, the region awaits the Turk's return.

    Our energy needs are rising rapidly and we already have to pay 57 Billion $ a year for energy to foreigners.
    If we can't find Oil in Black-Sea, we'll take our Oil from Eastern-Med to sustain our growth which is 2nd behind China within G-20.
    If we can mount ambhibious operation to Cyprus in 70's we can do so even better in 201X.

    We now have a workforce of more than 33.000 people who are in the business of building ships as Turkey has become 5th biggest ship-building nation.
    If there's war we'll put one ship after another into sea.
