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.

IS THE UNITED STATES’S SHRINKAGE BY ACQUIESCENCE POLICY IN THE MIDDLE EAST A HARBINGER OF THE THIRD WORLD WAR ?(16.10.2015)

Is the United States’s Shrinkage by Acquiescence Policy in the Middle East a Harbinger of the Third World War ?

The concept of proxy wars, together with the Arab Spring, has begun to be frequently used and heard in the agenda. It can be stated that the societal movements of the Middle East, apart from paving the way for developments that can be discussed within the concept of “revolution”, caused the association of the term proxy wars, a new destabilizing factor, with international politics.  Amid the existence of a positive perception that the Arab Spring is considered with the transformation of “regimes”, it can be observed that the countries where these transformatory attempts failed have turned them into playgrounds of other states. In this respect, when the pr...

HOW THE SYSTEM REALLY WORKS: AMERICAN ‘MATRYOSHKA’(2.08.2013)

How the System Really Works: American ‘Matryoshka’

The first American attempt to address the Palestinian-Israeli conflict following the 1967 war was 1978 Camp David Accords between Egypt and Israel containing components even on the Palestinian question. If we look objectively, it can be argued that American Middle East diplomatic efforts have not undergone any significant changes since 1978. The negotiations over reconciliation between the two parties encompass initiatives of the Carter, Raegan, George H. W. Bush, Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama administrations.The first breakthrough perhaps was the Oslo Accords, which showed some political will by both the parties. US-brokered talks during all these period hav...

In March 1993 Bosnia took a legal action under the Genocide Convention against Serbia and Montenegro. It took until 26 February 2007 for the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to deliver its resolution in the Application of the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, when the Court claimed that genocide had not been committed by Serbia, but it had only breached obligations to prevent genocide, (Seymour 2007).

However three subjects have been discussed in depth, first the Court has been criticized about weighing evidence which would affect state responsibility, seco...
