A 37 page pdf, that you can read through in under half an hour.
Stumbled across this today. Excellent reference.
Good for getting a sense of what's at stake in this part of the world. Ya know, why all the interest?
Though the East Mediterranean is quite far from the US, the US is going to embed itself in the region for many years to come. Clearly these 'game changer' gas reserves are a big part of the reasoning. It certainly isn't ISIS or humanitarianism or even terrorism. Not when the US, UK, Israel are the kingpins of global terrorism.
This information ties into so very many posts here at the blog. But, one three part series comes to mind, as being particularly relevant- I will relink all three below the pdf.
