This will frighten the oil and gas companies to death! Turkey will eventually get them down on their knees. They will eventually starve and go bankrupt.
They will not be allowed to drill in the "land of a million oil wells"!!
Are the Turks that stupid? Don't they know that today's world is run by oil and gas, medicine and the banks that are under one and the same roof as they are owned by the same people? And Turkey is threatening them!! Ofcoarse the oil companie's reaction is known in advance. Scr@w you!
It will be interesting to see what Turkey does next. Their only option must be to attack them with their mighty army and teach them that nobody is allowed to treat Turkey like dirt. Meantime, we will sit back and enjoy the humiliation of Turkey for the umteen time, a victim of their extra large mouth.

EU need to throw out G/C, till solve the Cyprus.

But Turkey make 5 mistakes, and for this reason not win the support from west:

1.Not recognize G/C

2.Have close borders with G/C and Armenia

3.Have not good relations with Greece-G/C-Armenia

4.Have army at north Cyprus

5.Have alliance with antidemocratic countries(example Iran).

currently Turkey is far more interesting and important for the above mentioned persons then your South-Cyprus ....

thus what you predict is very unlikely .... especially with the excellent relations which the Turkish government and the US government enjoy .....

Excellent relations? Give the US another dissapointment like the last time they were on their way to Irak and they will drop you like a sack of potatoes. The US needs another excuse to begin implimenting their B plan and keep their promise to the Kurds and split Turkey in four parts.
Besides, Turkish importance in the energy field will be greatly diminished in about ten years as they will not hold the only key to the supply of energy to Europe. The US's only remaining possible target to Asia, Iran, will be better accessed via their other allies in the vicinity rather than Turkey. Turkey's strategic importance is also diminishing very fast and they are becoming a liability to their present allies. The Turks have opened so many fronts with so many countries that when they do not have the support of their present allies will find themselves completely alone unable to cope with what they have started.
