"Macron said on Friday the EU would "not show weakness on this matter".

"What business does France have here?" Erdogan said. "Turkey is a guarantor power in Cyprus. Greece and the UK are guarantor powers as well. What are you?
"Are you making such statements for Total? Show you have the power of attorney. So it means you have left the presidency and have now begun work as a lawyer," he quipped.

Energy giants Total of France and Italy's ENI are heavily involved in exploring for oil and gas off Cyprus as well as ExxonMobil."

Report reveals billions in EU fossil fuel subsidies - www.dw.com

"When President Donald Trump announced the US' withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, European leaders were quick to speak up for the climate and stress the strength of their commitments to cut emissions.

Yet a new report from the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and Climate Action Network (CAN) shows the European Union is still pumping money into fossil fuel projects both at home and beyond its borders.

From 2014 to 2016, EU financial instruments and public banks subsidized gas and oil production with an average of over €3 billion, or $3.5 billion, per year, the report found. "

Basically, you're all being lied to. Not only are they poisoning the planet, they're taking an investment position.

Anyone want to wager if they'll see a return on those investments?

I believe that we should have kicked out Turkey from NATO in 1974 when they invaded Cyprus. It is now ruled by an Islamist dictator who jails any opposition without trial. Why are we allied with this creep, or any of these other states who do as bad or worse?

We are allied with Turkey for geostrategic reasons.

Not only do they control access to the Black Sea and provide a buffer state against the middle east but the have allowed us to have missile bases in their country in the past.
