Who and why wants to convince the world Uzbekistan is a terrorist country?

Why young men from this Asian country keep threatening the U.S. and Europe”, “Uzbekistan's links to global terror” These are headlines from headlines from different world media after NYC terror attack, where 29-year-old Uzbek national, on truck entered a bike path in lower Manhattan and drove over cyclists and pedestrians.It is an undoubted fact that this man, Sayfullo Saipov lived in Uzbekistan seven years ago. But here the main point is that he emigrated to the United States seven...


COULD UKRAINE CRISIS TRIGGER A NEW COLD WAR?(23.03.2017)

Could Ukraine Crisis Trigger A New Cold War?

The US’s last presidential race winner Donald Trump’s positive messages to Russia during the election campaign, caused criticisms from his opponents but on the Russian front, it created a rarely encountered public perception in favour of an American presidential candidate. Even after Trump was elected as the president, maintaining positive statements about Russia has stregthened expectations that the relations between the US and Russia would get better.

WILL AFGHANISTAN BECOME THE NEXT PROXY WAR?(13.03.2017)

Will Afghanistan Become The Next Proxy War?

Asst. Prof. Dr. Yusuf Çınar from the Department of International Relations in Bitlis Eren University interprets what further Russian involvement in Afghanistan of late could mean with regards to regional politics. The materialisation of the September 11 attacks in between the then on-going post-Cold War American global hegemony discussions once again put the spotlight back on Afghanistan. Afghanistan has turned into a matter of "prestige" during the War on Terror initiated by the George W. Bush administration. In other words, the "Enduring Freedom Operation" was the first indication that the USA was becoming a global hegemon. The US’ involvement in Afghanistan was unrivalled and dif...


AFGHANISTAN FUTURE IN WORLD POLITICS: THE PRESTIGE WAR(27.10.2016)

Afghanistan Future in World Politics: The Prestige War

Afghanistan was one of the places where Russia and the United Kingdom clashed during the 19th century. This geopolitical rivalry went down in history as "The Great Game." The United Kingdom aimed to keep away Russian influence from its Indian colony by capturing Afghanistan. The Great Game resulted with Afghanistan staying as a buffer state. The United Kingdom protected India from the Russian threat by reinforcing its dominance in Afghanistan. The Cold War era has once again rewritten the fate of Afghanistan. It can be hard to explain Soviet Union's occupation of Afghanistan solely by geopolitical interests. In this regard, the incident is important because it was the last case of th...


WHO WILL POLICE THE MIDDLE EAST?(1.03.2016)

Who Will Police the Middle East?

The USA started policing the world right after the Second World War. In the Korean Peninsula, the USA prevented the South from turning into a communist regime with the help of its allied powers. Perhaps taking courage from Korea, it attempted to do what the French could not in Vietnam. The French could not allocate their sovereignty in Vietnam. The US took a close interest in Vietnam after 1963; however it could not exercise power over it. Nevertheless, in the years between 1965 and 1973 the USA participated in a hot war in Vietnam. It was costly for the USA to assume this policing role. 58.220 people died and 153.303 others injured due to war. It was a 140 billion dollar expense...
