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...


REFUGEE CRISIS IN SYRIA: GREATEST FEAR OF EU, GREAT HOSPITALITY OF TURKEY(12.04.2017)

Refugee Crisis in Syria: Greatest Fear of EU, Great Hospitality of Turkey

Arab Spring, which started in 2010 and still has prolonged effects, has also penetrated Syria and protests against the regime have turned into a war in a short time. This process has resulted in instability and obscurity both in Syria and around the region. The war in Syria has led millions of Syrians to take refuge in different countries. Undoubtedly, Turkey is one of those main countries. Failure to find an international solution to the current crisis in Syria prognosticates that stability will not be assured for many years and the refugee issue that has world-wide effects will continue to grow. In this paper, we will analyze the refugee issue in terms of International Rela...


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...


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 ...


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...
