WHO AND WHY WANTS TO CONVINCE THE WORLD UZBEKISTAN IS A TERRORIST COUNTRY?(2.11.2017)

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

“Uzbekistan Has Become an Increasingly Important Source of Recruits for ISIS”, ‘ISIS lives forever’: Uzbek man, 29, who killed eight and injured 15”, “Where is Uzbekistan? 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...


WITH RUSSIA STRENGTHENING ITS ALLIANCE WITH ARMENIA(25.05.2017)

With Russia strengthening its alliance with Armenia

While the group of congressmen who form the Congressional Armenian Issues Caucus continue their unflinching, if not brazen, financial and military support to this South Caucasus nation, it serves as a military outpost for saber-rattling Russia — Armenia even brands itself as one of Russia's important military outposts.In an interview with Izvestia, a Russian daily, Sargsyan declared that Armenia is consistently building up its defense capability in the framework of military-technical cooperation with Russia. Also, he stressed the role of the 102nd Russian military base located in Armenian territory. And in November 2016, Armenia joined the anti-aircraft defens...


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...


OBSERVING HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST(13.02.2017)

Observing Human Rights in the Middle East

It becomes evident when traveling in war zones and isolated areas that the most vulnerable in such places are women and young children.In January, on a train bound from Mashhad, Iran, to Tabriz, I met a woman who looked to be in her 30s. Her name was Amir Nedai.Amir and I were sharing a 4-bed passenger cubicle with another couple from Iran; on a ride that would take 24 hours until our destination. Unlike Amir’s short stature, her husband was quite tall. He must not have liked the idea that his wife would be in the same cubicle with a foreign man (he and Amir were placed in different sections), because when he came inside our room, he did not even greet me.It felt ...


EAST TURKISTAN, THE FORGOTTEN COUNTRY(10.02.2017)

East Turkistan, The Forgotten Country

There exist the Pamir Mountains and Karakum Desert in the south and the Altay Mountains in the north of East Turkistan constituting the east area of Turkistan which means the land where Turkish live. East Turkistan had been founded in the Middle Asia and become the centre of Turkish states and khanates through its long history. This Turkish homeland, which became a centre of The Scythians between 8 and 3rd centuries B.C., Huns between 300 B.C. and 93 A.C., Gokturk Empire between 522 and 744, Uyghur Empire between 744 and 840, The Karakhanid Empire between 751 and 870, is shaping an important place in Turkish history. There was a period of peace when very important cul...
