Asia Times Oil: The sovereignty showdown in Iraq The political half of the Bush administration's gamble in Iraq has already been lost, but it has proven adamantly unwilling to accept the loss of the economic half, the oil half, without a desperate fight. The showdown now is between muscle-flexing Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, whose fragmenting country wants to reclaim sovereignty over its oil resources, and American military and diplomatic might. - Jack Miles

Iran Becoming New Iraq on Campaign Trail

Asia Times Attack Iran and you attack Russia
On the international front, Iran and Russia appear to have agreed on a plan to nullify the George W Bush administration's relentless drive towards launching a preemptive strike against Iran.

Kurdish militants significantly changed their tactics; previously they avoided direct confrontation with the Turkish military. The aim evidently is to bring Ankara into peace negotiations.

Turks have might, but it will be a fight On paper, the few thousand Kurdish militants based in northern Iraq are no match for Turkey, possessor of NATO's second biggest military force. But the insurgents have spread their arms dumps, intelligence, communications and main fighting units in dozens of well-hidden sites, and they could receive assistance from the Iraqi Kurds. - Richard M Bennett

What they have said about Foreign Press Review
"FPR'ın iki "kötü" özelliği var: 1. Alışkanlık yaratıyor, onsuz yapamaz hale geliyorsunuz; 2. Değeri alındığı değil, arada bir de olsa, alınamadığı vakit anlaşılıyor. Bir de sürekli bir kaygıya yol açıyor; 'Ya bir gün kesilir ve onu hiç alamazsam' duygusuyla sürekli yaşamak kolay değil."

Cengiz Çandar

"... fantastic .... an outstanding and unique service, not just for those who follow Turkey closely, but those who follow international trends and ideas. ... selection of material is some of the best anywhere ... coverage of the Turkish press and Turkish issues is truly unsurpassed .... outstanding and intelligent service"

Graham Fuller

"... extremely useful"

Andrew Mango

"FPR olmadan ne yapardım ya da bugüne kadar ne yapmışım bilemiyorum"
