(Politico)   Azerbaijan is using the chaos with Russia to bypass them and build a new oil pipeline through Turkey. Wait, wasn't this the plot of a Bond movie?   (politico.com) divider line 37

Actually it's Halliburton's business plan.

It was also the "plot" in "Syriana".

In the movie, Christmas Jones was a nuclear engineer.
I can assure you, the women in the nuclear engineering field do not look like Christmas Jones.

All her characters seem the same to me.

And apropos of nothing: "we've got a civil war in Russia, government loyalists against ultranationalists." "Just another day at the office."

I tell ya, it's sad.  I go to these conventions/meetings of nuclear professionals...  They're almost entirely populated by geeky, overweight, middle-aged white guys (like me).  That's at least 90%.  Another 7% are Indian (dot) or Asian.  The remaining 3% are biologically female.

Of those females, if she's a 6, then she is the hawtest-thing-evar!!!   It's all relative, you see.

My advice to homely women:  study nuclear engineering.  You will be treated like a goddess.

Turkey is the key to all this. Crimea means nothing to the Russians if the fleet can't get to the Mediterrean.
 
2014-04-18 07:53:39 PM
Ok I guess I will ask then.

Are they expecting US taxpayers to foot the bill for this? Shouldn't that area of the world be paying for it?

Yeah, that aspect of the Bond movie disappointed me, too --- not having the character development and in-depth motivational analysis I've come to expect from that genre.  ;)

Seriously, though, I love the Bond films and have them all on disk.  The one with Denise Richards was pretty good, but the much hotter scene was when Sophie Marceau had Bond all tied up and then sexually assaulted him:

That's exactly what needs to happen - giving Erdogan more leverage.

Gawd I hope there isn't a civil war in Turkey, because we will have to back that bastard.

As a Bond film, The World Is Not Enough was pretty good. As a film, it was...still respectable. And it is by far not the worst Bond film ever made (that dubious honor would go to...um...Die Another Day. Or Octopussy. Or whichever film it was where Timothy Dalton schtupped the Russian cellist--his only other Bond film was actually good, even with Carey Lowell as the Bond girl.

I hope the next Bond film is as good as Skyfall and Casino Royale.

The Ottoman Empire has always been a counterweight to Russia in the East.  Haven't you ever played Diplomacy?

I'm guessing they are out of contention as a launching site for Putin's renewed manned space program.

Unless he decides to make participation compulsory as part of his New Russia crap.

Seriously I had these guys in my "on Russia's side in The Next Big One" short list. Is Belarus going to bail on Putin next? The Commies running that show may be a bit upset at Putin talking about the 1920's being a mistake and wanting to return to 19th century borders.

I wonder if Russia's oligarchs are pushing this behind the scenes to undercut Putin's power. He's pushing things to the breaking point in his rush to push the clock back 150 years.

When Obama tells the world that diplomacy may not work to avert war then the other guy is considered less receptive than Assad, the Iranian Supreme Council and Republican leadership.

His sphere of influence continues to shrink. Whether this will make him slower or faster to take the conflict hot is the question.

Agree.  Pardon my heresy, but I think Daniel Craig is the best Bond.  Yes, even better than Connery.  There, I said it.

We need to have a thread on the hottest Bond women.

For me, I'm torn between:

 I don't go out of my way to watch the Bond movies but i borrowed Skyfall recently and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was.

I know a plant engineering specialist who actually has a pretty similar build, albeit with a different complexion and more tattoos.

Then, I did my undergrad in California, I suspect part of your problem is that three of the four biggest nuclear programs in the US are in the midwest and Texas A&M, so you're likely sampling from one of those places where things get a little "people of Wal-Mart" at times.

I used to date a very good looking girl who was getting her master's in nuclear engineering.

Fortunately for me, my only competition was engineers.

Is there a anything that doesn't mean war to Russia because of a pipeline: Chechnya, Afganistan, Ukraine.

I see the proposed pipeline goes miles out of the way to avoid going through Armenia. I wonder why that might be?

TWINE has one of my favourite and least favourite Bond Women. Sophie Marceau is up there with the best of them like Diana Rigg and Eva Green. Denise Richards is probably the worst. It's a pity really - they could have given Bond more of a hot and geeky woman (like the doctors he nailed in the past) rather than someone who really can't act very well and is just a beach hottie.

In TFA it mentions no US money involved, just US diplomatic leadership.
