SINKING ONCE MORE INTO THE SANDS OF MESOPOTAMIA?(14.04.2017)

Sinking Once More into the Sands of Mesopotamia?

The recent missile strike authorized by U.S. President Donald Trump in Syria after an apparent chemical weapons attack by the regime Bashar al-Assad represents a possible turning point in for new American Administration.  It is also a turning point in a direction that is unlikely to benefit President Trump and U.S. national interests in the long-run.President Donald Trump campaigned throughout both the Republican Party primaries and the General Election as a leader than would not simply embrace the Washington D.C. consensus where most every wrong in the world requires the white knight of the U.S. military to ride in and save the day.  In fact, during the campaign, he practi...


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...


OBAMA: PROMISES, BROKEN PROMISES AND COMPROMISES IN US FOREIGN POLICY(5.01.2017)

Obama: Promises, Broken Promises and Compromises in US Foreign Policy

United States of America has a new president elect Donald Trump and Barrack H. Obama has a few days to leave the Office.

When it comes to keeping up with the promises, no intellectual background is a warrant.

It was a war going nowhere, economically and politically putting the US into trouble. However US army is not totally out of the region yet. With its highest number of 180.000  in 2008, it has still got 5.300  soldiers ...


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...
