Energy International Risk Assessmentis is here as one of the most risky period begins in Energy World Affairs

The following comes from EIRA’s Editor:

A fundamental side effect of the countless post WW2 Aegean Sea crises involving NATO member states, Turkey and Greece, has so far been the drastic increase of exceptionally expensive arm procurements, mainly from the USA.

Due to its involvement in the Arab uprisings and the wars in Syria and Iraq, Turkey is lately also hard pressed from east, south and north and is looking desperately for scapegoats to cover its mistakes, to distract and to prevent the possible creation of an independent Kurdish state.

One route Turkey may pursue could be to cause trouble in the Aegean Sea and the Balkans, a possibility met with “neutrality” by Washington and with pro-Greek statements by Moscow.

President Vladimir Putin’s forthcoming visit to Athens offers another opportunity for Ankara and “neutral” Washington to threaten the future of austerity-lashed Greeks.

As such, a repetition of another “sudden” aggressive reaction from Turkey in the Aegean Sea, is highly likely to transpire. After all, the recent developments in Turkey, including the political changes, the downing of the Russian airplane and its involvement in the Syrian crisis oblige us to seriously consider all possible scenarios, such as those of fatal “accidents”, invasions against Greek islands, or even an uprising of the ever-increasing Muslim community in Greece.
