Defiant Erdogan Says Turkey Has Resumed Mediterranean Gas Exploration & Drilling

While over a week ago it was looking as if Turkey might back down on its ambitious oil and gas exploration aims in the eastern Mediterranean amidst global pressure, especially coming from the EU and US, President Erdogan is defiant once again, announcing Friday the resumption of energy exploration work that Greece and Cyprus says violates their territorial waters.

Emerging from Friday prayers at Hagia Sophia - which Turkey recently declared a mosque (in another shot aimed at Greece) - Erdogan said: "We have started drilling work again," and added, "I don’t think we are obligated to talk to those who do not have rights in the areas of maritime powers.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question here, is not if Greece will retaliate, potentially militarily; the question is, how, and when, will it respond militarily.

IF I am viewing this correctly, I would suggest that the world will not have to wait until mid-Fall to see the shape, and scope, of Greece's response.
