Update on a post earlier in the month when Turkey and Armenia signed their historic accord.  Turkey’s domestic cousin Azerbaijan has tossed the first (and expected) roadblock in the attempted rapprochement.  Like with most regional disputes the final normalization of ties is going to require a regional settlement and a lot of patience.  The benefits to the region and the world’s (particularly Europe’s) energy supply are great.  An added benefit will be the diversification of energy supplies so that Europe does not have to rely as much on Russia’s mercurial mood swings the next time they want to send a message to Ukraine  or another country that displeases it.
