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...


DOES PKK USE DRUG ADDICTS TO CONDUCT SUICIDE ATTACKS?(19.01.2017)

Does PKK Use Drug Addicts To Conduct Suicide Attacks?

For the illegal Marxist organisations, a suicide attack is a last effort to stand up for themselves. Especially as a result of the successful operations in Eastern and South-eastern Anatolia against it, PKK has changed its strategy and started to go for suicide attacks by employing its urban settlements. In the previous periods there was a symbolical dimension for terrorist organisations which made suicide attacks meaningful for them, however today they are mainly employed as the fastest way of getting results.Tamil Tigers of Sri Lanka were the first organisation in the world to initiate suicide attacks. The Marxist, ethnic separatist organisation has frequently employed suic...


A SHARP TURN IN TURKEY-RUSSIA RELATIONS(11.01.2017)

A Sharp Turn in Turkey-Russia Relations

1-What are the reasons that go beyond the assassination of the Russian Ambassador?I am on the opinion that the assassination of Ambassador Karlov is not a simple incident, the reason being that ambassadors only agree to participate in events if they are sure up until the very last second that there will be no security issues where they are going. Even the security guards closest to them learn about their daily program at the last second. If a young, 22-year old police officer is able to murder an ambassador, the issue requires to be examined. As you know, the July 15 insurrection was held by the FETO terror organisation. After July 15, the government discharged a number o...


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. Obama is a high profile democratic president with a Harvard degree and intellectual background in comparison to Trump. When it comes to keeping up with the promises, no intellectual background is a warrant. So happened with Obama in his two terms.One of the promises Obama kept is ending the war in Iraq which his predecessor had started. 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 ...
