AFGHANISTAN FUTURE IN WORLD POLITICS: THE PRESTIGE WAR(27.10.2016)

Afghanistan Future in World Politics: The Prestige War

Afghanistan was one of the places where Russia and the United Kingdom clashed during the 19th century. This geopolitical rivalry went down in history as "The Great Game." The United Kingdom aimed to keep away Russian influence from its Indian colony by capturing Afghanistan. The Great Game resulted with Afghanistan staying as a buffer state. The United Kingdom protected India from the Russian threat by reinforcing its dominance in Afghanistan. The Cold War era has once again rewritten the fate of Afghanistan. It can be hard to explain Soviet Union's occupation of Afghanistan solely by geopolitical interests. In this regard, the incident is important because it was the last case of th...


CAN TURKEY COMPETE WITH IRAN IN THE CAUCASUS?(29.08.2015)

Can Turkey compete with Iran in the Caucasus?

The agreement reached as the result of talks between Iran and P5+1 countries (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States, plus Germany) has led to debate over whether or not Iran is going to wield a more influential set of foreign policies in the Caucasus from here onwards. It seems quite possible that Iran’s already pragmatic Caucasus policies will quite soon make a rapid rise in the economy and energy sectors. Setting aside questions concerning Russia’s power and standing in the region for a moment, the issue of Iran’s influence in the Caucasus is of critical importance to Turkey.In the new era now unfolding, Iran does possess the ability to...


EUROPEA UNION AT HARD TIMES(11.12.2013)

Europea Union At Hard Times

When we remark about the future of the European Union (EU) according to the recent events, we should mention primarily from the existence of problems. These problems are economic crisis and the lack of support to the European Union. With its 500 million populations, EU is the third largest political unit of the world. Naturally, this population requires big responsibilities. The EU national leaders ignore EU’s decisions rather than their national interest and profits. Over the last three years, we have faced the worst economic crisis and recession in the world since the 1930s. As were many crises that affected the world, many researches and various comments have been made...


KINDRED SPIRITS: MARGARET THATCHER AND TURGUT OZAL (14.04.2013)

Kindred Spirits: Margaret Thatcher and Turgut Ozal

According to historian Paul Johnson, “"Thatcherism" was the most popular and successful way of running a country in the last quarter of the 20th century and into the 21st.” Turkey today should remember fondly British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher who passed away at the Ritz Hotel in London, April 8, 2013. If not for her genius and ability to change a country weighed down by state-run enterprises that had led eventually to economical stagnation and despondence, where Turkey would be today? It is the power of Lady Thatcher’s ideas that turned Turkey into a thriving economy, which unquestionably Turkey is today. It is obvious that it took a fellow genius and kindred spiri...


HOUSE OF THE NATION(27.02.2013)

House of the Nation

This exceptional museum is of great historic and personal interest in Egypt and has long been close to the heart of Egyptians. Outside this building erupted the Egyptian revolution, not that of 2011, but the 1919 Revolution. Beit el-Umma is located in the Mounira district of Cairo and was the home of Saad Zaghloul (1859-1927), a popular nationalist leader in the early 1900, and his esteemed wife Safiya. The house was known as Beit el-Umma (House of the Nation), as Zaghloul would often hold meetings with the Egyptian cabinet in his own home. It was said that one day, when he was in a meeting with some friends, a discussion erupted and he asked them: How can yo...
