Erdogan’s Impunity

Entirely coincidentally, on January 29, just at the time when western nations were at last paying a little attention to Turkish President Erdogan’s persecution of so many of his citizens, the Turkish government alleged that a Russian aircraft had violated Turkish airspace...

What Kind of State Is Erdogan’s Turkey?

False Flag Bomb to Erase Erdogan’s Terror Links

It’s the deft way that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reacted to the deadly bombing in Istanbul this week that raises suspicions. Suspicions that there is much more to the incident than simply an Islamist terror attack carried out against innocent civilians. To put it bluntly: Erdogan “needed” this atrocity in order to erase mounting evidence of his own regime’s collusion in terrorism with the very same Islamist terror network alleged to have carried out the Istanbul bombing...

Chaos in Middle East to Spur US-Turkey Friendship

The events of late 2015 – early 2016 show the US-Turkey ties are getting stronger. The Turkey’s role of a NATO's southern flank bastion is growing. The Islamic State, which is financed by illegal exports of oil through the Turkish territory, is used by Washington and Ankara to justify intense coordinated military activities. Turkey has permitted the use of İncirlik, Diyarbakır and Batman air bases by its Western allies...

ISIL Janissary Army of Sultan Erdogan

In the days of the Ottoman sultans, Janissaries, mercenaries recruited to personally serve as the sultan’s private army, wielded tremendous power throughout the Ottoman empire, which also happened to be the last Islamic caliphate. The Janissaries were mostly recruited from conquered Christian peoples in Albania, Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia, and Bulgaria. Christian families saw their young sons pressganged into military service as soldier slaves for the Ottoman emperor. Normally, the families never again saw their sons...

Turkey’s Middle East Policy: What Goes Around Comes Around

Russia's economic sanctions imposed against Turkey following its downing of a Russian Su-24 bomber in Syria on November 24, 2015, by Turkish fighter, came into force on January 1... Probably, Turkey will continue to be a serious destabilizing factor in the Middle East and adjacent regions. Meanwhile, the situation on the battlefield has changed in favor of Damascus. Hopefully, terrorists will be cut off from the supply routes across the Turkey’s border...

Turkey, Saudi Reap Machiavellian Whirlwind

The year ended, appropriately, with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan flying to Riyadh to hold a summit with Saudi King Salman. The meeting had the air of two leaders closing ranks after a year of setbacks. As the old adage puts it, misery needs company. And there is much misery that the Turkish and Saudi leadership have to console each other about...

Amid financial hardship, Erdogan looks to Qatar as 'rich daddy'

A series of controversial steps in the region has left Turkey increasingly isolated in its neighborhood. As a result, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government has gone on a hunt for new “friends.” Normalizing ties with Israel is now back on the agenda. The second door the government has knocked on is Qatar's.

Secret 2010 State Dept Report Warned of Turkey’s Neo-Ottoman Shift

In recent months, Ankara’s increasingly aggressive foreign policy has become the center of global attention. Looking back to the origins of the neo-Ottomanist ideology which drives Turkey’s risky foreign adventurism today, a classified US State Department cable from 2010 confirms that Washington saw President Erdogan’s dangerous shift in foreign policy coming, but couldn’t do anything about it – or worse, chose not to...
