You can see those fields in the map: Sadly it got ignored by the other powers, and now France (which has a company doing the drilling) sends two of its own warships there. Why is everyone ganging up on poor Turkey? Anyway, re France: too late, it was France which gifted Turkey with eastern Thrace, including Constantinople in 1922, and (of course) they are only here to protect their own interests.

Will Turkey be given what it deserves, ie civil war every oil/gas ever? -How many warships and planes does Total command?
