Hmm....need a few billion, sit conveniently on two major seafaring chokepoints who do I ask? Theoretically could this make the Med the eventual playground of Islamic Fundementalist states and USSr type areas of influence? Russia gains by having a 'mate' in the region, 2 in fact when Greece goes back to the polls. Turkey, I'd imagine their a bit more concerned about Syria etc. Egypt, dodgy elections..Muslim Brotherhood looking good for the future. All geo-political theories considered ?
