Hmmmm.....isn't having relations with your next-door neighbour kind of like screwing your sister?

In the case of Turkey, the comparison is simply rife with political similies and metaphores. In terms of literarary tradition, these similies and metaphores have been meta-whoring for centuries. Talk about a melting-pot! Hoo-doggie!

If Rumi were alive today, would he have any recourse but to take to the stick-horse?

 Robert Gates is a moron.  Russia is doing what it has ALWAYS done historically.  Play all sides at once.

"Officially" with regards to its relationship with the US, Russia is inimical to Iran.

When not talking with the US, Russia pursues making a profit and building relationships.

Why?

Because it's gaming the US.  It's gaming EVERYONE.  And the US is going to do nothing about it.  So, therefore, why should Russia not lie to the US if it gets something out of the relationship?

Why is it our business anyway?
