    Let them sacrifice some blood and capital there for a few years/decades - maybe keep them out of trouble elsewhere.

    Indeed, after all its not been a strategic policy since 1950 to keep the Soviets, er Russians out of the ME or anything. Its not like thats why Turkey is in NATO in the first place.

    You have to hand it to Putin. He did what no premier could do. Of course Khruschev faced Eisenhower, Breznev faced Nixon. Putin faced well never mind.

    The seventy year old club of wisdom at lunch decided that if we were the leaders of Israel, Japan and South Korea we would start producing all the nuclear weapons we could. That is the only thing that has deterrent value in today's threat environment.

    Certainly, not trust the USA to come to our rescue or even make a deterrent threat.

    Taiwan is toast, just wait a few years. They should make a stronger deal but one like one that Hong Kong had for some kind of semi-autonomy. Might not be going well there now but you get the idea.

    Personally, I'd kiss Turkey off. Needing to control the Bosphorus to prevent the Russian fleet from threatening the Suez canal is so old school British Empire. Let them be a Russian vassal state.

    Estimates place Israel's warhead count between 100-400.

    They may be good.
