Turkey Signs Three Trade Deals with Iran

    You don’t suppose, by any chance, that the importation of oil from Iranian Kurdistan by Turkey had anything to do with these Byzantine negotiations? While they point up the impotence of the USA in the Levant, the real question is the impact on Turkish-Israeli relations, i.e., whether Turkey has made a decision or is playing off Iran against Israel. If the former, the odds of an Israeli strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities have just increased.

    For some reason, I am reminded of the paranoid delusions of the far-right extremist warmongering Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, who preposterously and disingenuously claimed that the Iranian nuclear agreement would inevitably lead to a rapid erosion of the sanctions regime.
