QATAR CRISIS CAN BOTH POSITIVELY AND NEGATIVELY AFFECT TURKEY(8.06.2017)

Qatar crisis can both positively and negatively affect Turkey

Qatar crisis can by no means have a direct impact on Turkey, Yusuf Cinar, head of the Turkish analytical center, Strategic Outlook, told Trend June 5.The UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen announced about breaking their diplomatic relations with Qatar over Doha’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood, the world’s oldest Islamist movement, and also its ties with Saudis’ arch-rival Iran, sparking off simmering dispute in the Gulf Cooperation Council.“However, the Qatar crisis can have an indirect impact on Turkey both negatively and positively,” the expert said.He added that the crisis between Qatar and the six Arab countries is ...


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...


THE TARGET OF ROCKET ATTACKS: KILIS(6.05.2016)

The Target of Rocket Attacks: Kilis

1- What are the effects of Syrian Civil War to Turkey and in particular to Kilis? With the beginning of the Arab Spring, both Middle East and Northern Africa countries began to change their political regimes and these countries have begun to cause the emergence of a new humanitarian crisis. The Arab Spring has increasingly spread to different Middle East countries and with the Syrian Civil War in 15 March 2015, the humanitarian crisis have jumped to the top spot of the international community. With the start of the Syrian Civil War, unprecedented refugee crisis emerged in the international arena, and Syrians began to move to other countries, especially to Turkey. Acc...


SECURITY RISKS IN TURKISH FOREIGN POLICY: THE SYRIAN ISSUE AND BALANCE OF THREAT(22.02.2016)

Security Risks in Turkish Foreign Policy: The Syrian Issue and Balance of Threat

Also emphasized in my article entitled "US' Strategy of Willingly Retreating from the Middle East, a Precursor of the Third World War?" published on 2 November 2015, I previously claimed that Syria could be a road test for a Third World War. With the downing of the Russian plane by Turkey on 24 November 2015, balances and alliances in the region have been reshaped. Thus, within the context of Turkish Foreign Policy's crisis of Syria, this analysis will discuss security risks in terms of balance of power and balance of threat.It can be said that Turkish Foreign Policy has a tight knit with the "balance of power" concept within a historical context. As Baskin Oran s...


ANGOLA: THE END OF THE LONG SILENT MARCH?(6.08.2015)

Angola: the End of the Long Silent March?

When, on May 19, 2015, I was in Luanda at the invitation of the Portuguese Embassy to present in Angola the book ‘Metamorfoses no Poder: rumo à hegemonia do dragão?’, which had previously been released in Portugal, I was pleased to find myself in front of an audience aware of the China issue. I was trying hard to direct my presentation only to the positive effects of the Chinese global-scale emergence, seeking to avoid emphasising (too much) the side effects, less positive, of the rise of the Dragon, even because that didn't seemed to be, at all, the ideal context –after all, Angola, where I was, had emerged from a long an...
