Erdogan and his Pattern

...One way or another, Neo-Ottomanism allows Ankara be flexible while adopting the policy of protecting Islam and being secular while promoting the policy of expansion in the Balkans, the Black Sea, the Caucasus, Central Asia and the Middle East. The policy requires constant correction. But the local election on March 30 gave testimony to the fact that that the «Erdogan’s pattern» has great clout, its potential is far from being exhausted.

Saudi Arabia: The US President’s Futile Trip

...The story of Riyadh’s nuclear cooperation with Islamabad, including the acquisition of missiles capable of delivering nuclear warheads over long ranges, goes back decades. This has been discussed by Gary Samore in particular, who until March 2013 was the White House Coordinator for Arms Control and Weapons of Mass Destruction. He wanted to understand (since it is still unclear) why the US is not objecting to Saudi Arabia’s nuclear plans, seeing as there is a risk of the rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia turning into a global conflict...

Barack Obama and Saudi Arabia: Behind the Scenes of the Visit

...Official sources report that during the negotiations with King Abdullah, President Obama only rejected the idea of direct U.S. military strikes against Syria.  Obama considered everything else, including the delivery of MANPADs to the rebels, to be possible. White House representatives do not speak plainly about this; they begin to prevaricate, but the question can essentially be considered resolved. After the negotiations, it is clear that this summer Riyadh and Washington, in partnership with other «friends of Syria», will once again try to use weapons to «close the issue» of al-Asad and of the Syrian Arab Republic in its current form...

US Uses Ukraine as Pretext for Launching Energy War against Russia

As it became clear that the economic sanctions against Russia are going to backlash against the United States and the European Union, the West started to study other ways to «punish» Russia, including bringing down market energy rates. Obama promised to start gas deliveries from the US straight to Europe. Many saw it as the start of energy war against Russia. On March 26, the US House Foreign Affairs Committee held hearing on «The Geopolitical Potential of the U.S. Energy Boom» to study the ways how the energy production growth in the United States could be used against Russia... Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs, said Europe’s dependence on Russia’s energy supplies paralyzed the US Ukraine’s policy. The US influence and the authority of US President have diminished globally. According to Royce, the way to rectify the situation is to weaken Russia by pushing it away from traditional markets and bringing energy prices down...

Suleiman Shah and Turkey’s Election Invasion of Syria: Wag the Dog Turkish-Style?

The Turkish opponents of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his beleaguered government have claimed that a distressed Erdogan may try to start a conflict with Syria and even invade Syrian territory. According to Erdogan’s opponents, the aim of a Turkish invasion of Syria by Erdogan is to invoke patriotic sentiments domestically. The aim of this is to manipulate the Turkish population into supporting Prime Minister Erdogan’s declining Justice and Development Party (AKP) during the Turkish municipal elections that are slated for March 30, 2014...

Washington and Riyadh a Step Away from a «Final Solution» to the Syrian Issue

Recently the Syrian issue has flared up once more. Heated discussions in American political circles and emotional speeches from participants of the Arab League conference in Kuwait March 25-26 are not a discussion of plans for the peaceful resolution of the Syrian conflict; they are a debate about which method for capturing Damascus and overthrowing President al-Asad will be most effective... Now Americans see Syria as a way to get «revenge for Crimea» and the capture of Damascus as an opportunity to deprive Moscow of all its positions in the Middle East... Obama is to visit Riyadh March 28-29. At the end of the week it will apparently become clear what path al-Asad’s opponents have chosen for the «final solution» to the Syrian issue.

A Decisive Turnaround in the Syrian War: Al-Assad’s Victory in the Qalamoun Valley

Against the background of what is happening in and around Crimea, the war in Syria has been somewhat relegated to the sidelines of world politics. In the meantime, the country has experienced some extremely important events in the last few days that have spoiled the mood of the White House even further. The Syrian army has cleared the Qalamoun region of opposing forces, which is strategically as important as the Panjshir Valley in Afghanistan... There is also a growing danger that confronted with the ultimate defeat of al-Assad’s opponents, Washington may take advantage of Russia’s absorption in the Ukrainian crisis and opt for military intervention in Syria...
