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. Nonetheless, Trump’s National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s being recently resigned on charges of ‘some bargains’ were negotiated during a phone call with Sergey Kislyak, the ambassador of Russia to the US, before T...

An Interview with Prof. Hüsamettin Arslan About 15 July by Bengül Güngörmez

Bengül Güngörmez: On the night of July 15, 2016 Turkey witnessed outrageous incidents that will haunt people for years to come. A coup with a foreign reach was attempted, planned and conducted by FETÖ militants, and led by Fethullah Gülen. From the government to the opposition people from various segments of the society put up a great fight against the attempt. Some of them made history. We have martyrs and a great number of injured. Kids, women and elders were murdered by militants dressed in soldier uniforms. Our parliament was bombed the first time in its history. In a way, all the dropped bombs were dropped against the democracy. They bombarded our democracy. This cou...


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...
