#1 Just like Argentina. Change the subject while your economy implodes.

#2 Part of this is posturing. But part of it is the overall recognition that there is no clear leader in the Muslim world. Ergodan and his Turkish party are trying and not doing well. The Saudis are having problems with their Sunni Shiite population; they will likely face problems with jihadis in the next few years. Qatar is playing the "long game".

We're somewhat lucky in that there isn't a grand emir at this point. Doesn't mean that there won't be one after a long and nasty fight about it.

#3 1990's "ISLAMIC MILITARY UNION" returneth.

"Muslim States should NOT be Third-Rate powers, but must turn into One Superior Military Power" > which once again shows why fickly Secular Leftists-Socialists are taking a very dangerous risk in colluding wid fickly ambitious Theo-Socialist Radical Islam.

WHAT THE LEFT HAS DONE IN AMERICA = AMERIKKA AS PER "UNIVERSALISM" = "STRATIFICATION" FOR DEMOGRAPHIC MINORITIES, IT CAN DO FOR MUSLIMS + LEGAL SHARIA IN AMERIKKA.

Attorneys + Litigation, NOT the Hard Boyz + AK-47's.

#4 Meanwhile, not to be outdone by IRAN ...

* WAFF > TURKIC [Muslim] MILITARY UNION FORMED, as composed of Turkey + Azerbaijan + Kyrgyzstan + Mongolia, wid HQ based in Ankara.

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > ERDOGAN: TURKEY MULLING SHANGHAI-TYPE ORGANIZATION [SCO] AS ALTERNATIVE FOR EU.

No headway/progress in Membership talks between Turkey + EU, so Turkey is now desiring to form its own Org.
