COMPLICATED FOREIGN POLICY OF TURKEY(2.03.2016)

Complicated Foreign Policy of Turkey

Turkey's foreign policy seems to be an entangled net of foreign relations. A NATO member and U.S. ally in the region, Ankara has grown distant toward Washington D.C. due to the American support for the Kurdish militias involved in the Syrian conflict. Once a major Russian tourist attraction, Turkey now faces an economic boycott after downing a Russian jet last year. The eternal EU candidate, Ankara was accused to be playing the refugees card in order to negotiate better deals with the EU (including the visa waivers and an assistance package). We have asked Mehmet Fatih Öztarsu, a Turkish political analyst, some questions about Turkey's complicated foreign policy.I...


WHO WILL POLICE THE MIDDLE EAST?(1.03.2016)

Who Will Police the Middle East?

The USA started policing the world right after the Second World War. In the Korean Peninsula, the USA prevented the South from turning into a communist regime with the help of its allied powers. Perhaps taking courage from Korea, it attempted to do what the French could not in Vietnam. The French could not allocate their sovereignty in Vietnam. The US took a close interest in Vietnam after 1963; however it could not exercise power over it. Nevertheless, in the years between 1965 and 1973 the USA participated in a hot war in Vietnam. It was costly for the USA to assume this policing role. 58.220 people died and 153.303 others injured due to war. It was a 140 billion dollar expense...


T-LORAMIDS DECISION POINTS TO TURKEYS STRENGTHENING BONDS WITHIN NATO(1.03.2016)

T-LORAMIDS Decision Points to Turkeys Strengthening Bonds Within NATO

After a protracted bidding battle to supply Turkey with T-LORAMIDS (Turkish Long Range Air And Missile Defense System – “Turkish long-range air defense missile system"), the Turkish leadership made a decision to launch its own project to build the system. This information became public on November 15, 2015.  In view of Turkey’s determination to pursue a comprehensive program of indigenization of its armed forces and building cutting edge competencies, Turkey is investing in its native advanced arms manufacturers such as Aselsan that produces short and medium range missiles and electronic system for the military. According to HIS Jane Defence Weekly, Turkey assembled 60% ...


IS THE CRISIS OF NATIONAL INTEGRATION THE MAIN REASON OF INTERNAL CONFLICT IN SOUTH SUDAN?(22.02.2016)

Is the crisis of national integration the main reason of internal conflict in South Sudan?

The man is a social creature, and cannot even think of having a nonpartisan continuation. Aristotle said centuries ago was the same: "the man lives in a family, village, and cities. Not as an isolated being." in this paper we will examine the social life of the Africans and the main reason of the internal conflicts in the East African country’s South Sudan in our opinion it is the weak national integration in these countries. Before the decolonization, particularly in East African countries, the societies were wanderers communities and didn't able to brought them in the organization. But the colonists achieved to united these societies in one state and formed the...


SECURITY RISKS IN TURKISH FOREIGN POLICY: THE SYRIAN ISSUE AND BALANCE OF THREAT(22.02.2016)

Security Risks in Turkish Foreign Policy: The Syrian Issue and Balance of Threat

Also emphasized in my article entitled "US' Strategy of Willingly Retreating from the Middle East, a Precursor of the Third World War?" published on 2 November 2015, I previously claimed that Syria could be a road test for a Third World War. With the downing of the Russian plane by Turkey on 24 November 2015, balances and alliances in the region have been reshaped. Thus, within the context of Turkish Foreign Policy's crisis of Syria, this analysis will discuss security risks in terms of balance of power and balance of threat.It can be said that Turkish Foreign Policy has a tight knit with the "balance of power" concept within a historical context. As Baskin Oran s...
