    POLITICS - Turkey begins work on ICBM

    - Extending the range of the SOM Cruise-Missile to 2,500 km.
    - producing a missile which is able to leave earth's atmosphere and re-enter it again.

    Here's the real 'bomb' Ekkie....


    1. To compete in the world economy, it must educate and employ women…but the more years of education, the fewer children she has.

    a. Women 40 to 49 without formal education average five children, while for those who have completed high school or higher, is two. http://www.demogr.mpg.de/Papers/workshops/050509_paper08.pdf

    b. Between 1995-1998, Turkish fertility was 2.29 children per woman; but Kurdish fertility was 4.27. Since Kurds comprise 18% of the Turkish population (based on mother tongue), the Turkish fertility rate excluding Kurds, was only 1.5, which is as low as Europe’s! Ibid. and http://epc2006.princeton.edu/download.aspx?submissionId=60137

    Better hurry with them bombs.....


    2. Like the vanishing point in a perspective painting, long-term projections help us order our perceptions of what we see in front of us today. Here's one to think about, fresh from the just-released update of the United Nations' population forecasts: At constant fertility, Israel will have more young people by the end of this century than either Turkey or Iran, and more than German, Italy or Spain.

    With a total fertility rate of three children per woman, Israel's total population will rise to 24 million by the end of the present century. Iran's fertility is around 1.7 and falling, while the fertility for ethnic Turks is only 1.5 (the Kurdish minority has a fertility rate of around 4.5).

    The link says something totally different.
    It says, that 14% of Turkish population have Kurdish mothertongue, and that 35% of all Kurdish women use Turkish to communicate with their men (children will be Turkish speaking in first place).

    You been to Turkey recently?

    It's got one of the fastest growing economies in the world. In fact..Istanbul real estate is about on par with places like New York..

    They aren't even all that interested in joining the Eurozone anymore.

    I kinda think developing an ICBM is a fool's errand..but if you are going to do a bomb..you'd better have the delivery system in place first.

    Technical University of Istanbul and Research Council have a state-financed budget of 1.1 billion $ to develop space-launching-vehicle to carry satellites and a command centre.
    İşte Türkiye'nin uzay programı - ntvmsnbc.com

    The command-center will be constructed in Sinop on Black-Sea coast.
    An ICBM is not far away after Space-launching-Vehicle.

    If a country like Iran (heavily under sanctions) can produce space-launching-vehicles, so can Turkey. Although Turkey started late with this business.

    And nowhere to put them! Or are they planning on invading and conquering?

    And what does Israel have to do with Türkiye's ICBMs? Do you believe this is all about Israel? :lol:
