OBAMA: PROMISES, BROKEN PROMISES AND COMPROMISES IN US FOREIGN POLICY(5.01.2017)

Obama: Promises, Broken Promises and Compromises in US Foreign Policy

United States of America has a new president elect Donald Trump and Barrack H. Obama has a few days to leave the Office. Obama is a high profile democratic president with a Harvard degree and intellectual background in comparison to Trump. When it comes to keeping up with the promises, no intellectual background is a warrant. So happened with Obama in his two terms.One of the promises Obama kept is ending the war in Iraq which his predecessor had started. It was a war going nowhere, economically and politically putting the US into trouble. However US army is not totally out of the region yet. With its highest number of 180.000  in 2008, it has still got 5.300  soldiers ...


TURKEY OPERATION EUPHRATES SHIELDL IN THE CASE OF NIXONIFIED US FOREIGN POLICY: RISKS AND THREATS(21.09.2016)

Turkey Operation Euphrates Shieldl in the Case of Nixonified US Foreign Policy: Risks and Threats

With the failed coup attempt in July, the future of US-Turkey relations once again came into question. Especially the US’ sidestepping of the extradition of the head terrorist Fethullah Gülen, regressed US-Turkey relations. Indeed, Turkey's Operation Euphrates Shield started at a late hour and while the US Vice President Joe Biden was enroute on a plane for his visit to Turkey. This work argues that Obama's foreign policy has similarities to that of Richard Nixon's, discussing the risks and threats Turkey may face in the context of her Operation Euphrates Shield under such circumstances. As Kirby emphasizes, in previous periods the Anglo-Prussian alliance...


FERIT TEMUR: "THE SCO HAS THE POTENTIAL OF BEING A GLOBAL ACTOR”(8.06.2015)

A BEWILDERING MIDDLE EAST: WHO IS WITH WHOM?(23.10.2013)

A Bewildering Middle East: Who is with Whom?

After the Revolutions in Tunisia and in Egypt that removed two of the biggest dictators in the Arab world –Tunisian President Ben Ali and Egyptian President Mubarak–, the region was never the same again. For the last three years, a tsunami wave of protests hit several countries. Some movements were suppressed from their very early stages like what happened in Bahrain and Jordan. Yet, other movements resulted in bringing the country to a civil war like in the cases of Libya and Syria, where the war in the latter threatens to spiral out of control to bring a third world war. A contradiction of interests, particularly in Syria and Egypt, has brought the global struggle o...

America and Europe in the Balkans

Between fundamental strategic influence and a weak rhetoric?In late October in 2012 the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Catherine Ashton EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy visited several countries of the Western Balkans, demonstating a joint action in this part of the world and traying to convey the message to the the Balkan nations that these two "global superpowers" are extremely interested in resolving political, economic, legal and social problems of the region and pushing its integration into the Euro-Atlantic organizations. In addition, Clinton and Ashton criticised local political elites both for economic stagnation and politica...
