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...

In the Ties Between Turkey and Israel Geo-Economics Should Trump Geo-Politics

In the hour of need, when the Russian-Turkish diplomatic confrontation over the downed Russian Su-24 jet, Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his willingness to sell natural gas to Turkey. Turkey is going to experience crunch in energy as the result of an escalating anti-Turkish sanctions imposed by Russia since the incident, when the two Turkish F-15s downed the Russian SU-24 jet which entered for about 15 seconds the Turkish airspace on November 24. Turkey imports 60 percent of its natural gas from Russia and Russia, undoubtedly, is going to use an “energy” weapon to pressure Turkey like it did in in 1996 and 1999 against Ukraine.An here geo-economics e...
