The Turkish foreign minister has "assured" Iran that turkey does not see Iran as a threat.

This after last year's threats from Iran saying they won't hesitate to target NATO's missile shield systems in Turkey.

Iran, Russia, and China are also planning a joint missile shield to counter the NATO systems.

Turkey buys 30% if its' oil from Iran by the way.

The Turkish foreign minister attempted to dispel rumors that the NATO missile shield recently stationed in Turkey, should pose as a threat to Iran or damage relations between the countries.

Davutoglu stated that Turkey and Iran trust each other. "I certainly do not see Iran as a threat," Hurriyet quoted Davutoglu as saying.

Not much mention of Israel.

I wonder if anybody is worried about Israeli missiles ?

Turkey is evaluating whether to seek a waiver from the United States to exempt Turkish oil importer Tupras from new US sanctions on institutions that deal with Iran's central bank, a Turkish official said on Tuesday.

US ally Turkey is among the biggest buyers of Iranian oil and gas. It gets about 30 percent of its oil from neighbor Iran, and Tupras, Turkey's biggest crude oil importer is a big buyer of Iranian crude.

Great, here we are headed to another war over oil.

Or, uh.... I mean because Iran has WMD's.

Sad How many lives will be lost, and how many minds permanently scarred in this one?

Guess we better start sending aid to turkey, and kissing diplomatic butt to see if they will reverse their decision.
