The worsening situation in the Middle East and the collapse of Turkey’s policy of Neo-Ottomanism

A crisis is unfolding in the Middle East and almost all the regimes established with Western assistance during the Arab Spring have now been destabilized, thus thwarting not only America’s strategic calculations in the region, but also the expectations of those who were attempting to further their own interests by playing along with the US plans. The biggest “loser” has been Turkey...Turkey’s leaders have made a series of major and fatal errors. Of these, the biggest was the intervention in Syria intended to establish a deferential regime…

Mosul Captured: Turkey’ Involvement in Iraqi Events

...Talking about the events in Iraq, one should remember that Baghdad never forgot the Turkish claims regarding Mosul. Many a time Baghdad accused Ankara of interference into its internal affairs. Those who are close to Prime Minister al-Maliki have directly accused Turkey of trying to annex Mosul. The sources close to Baghdad government affirm that Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are behind the ISIS operation in the province of Anbar. Baghdad believes that Turkey prepares to reshape the map of the Middle East by destabilizing the western provinces of Iraq that have border lines with Syria...

US on Сomeback Trail in Iraq

The US President Barack Obama broke his silence late Friday in a formal statement at the White House in Washington, DC, regarding the dramatic developments in northern Iraq resulting in the fall of Mosul and other places to the hands of the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant [ISIL] last week... When will the intervention start? Obama clarified: «it is going to take several days»... A US military operation in the Sunni heartlands of northern Iraq would most certainly mean the disruption of Iran’s communication links with Syria...

Turkey: Gas Deals with Russia, EU Kept Aside

Russia faces new prospects for boosting energy cooperation with other countries. Ankara wants to increase gas supplies delivered through Blue Stream, a major Trans – Black Sea gas pipeline that carries natural gas from Russia straight to Turkey... the Russia-Turkey energy talks won’t be easy. But Turkey has no choice. Ankara believes the European Union’s sanctions policy is doomed to failure, so solidarity with the EU is the last thing on the mind of Turkish politicians...

Ukraine Becoming Source of WMD Proliferation

As media reported on April 5, Turkey is allegedly in talks with Yuzhmash Mechanical Plant to buy the production documentation for the intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) R-36M2 «Voevoda» (NATO classification - SS-N-18 «Satan»)... The situation in Ukraine and the related threat of uncontrolled proliferation of missile technology becomes a universal problem. The Kiev-based regime is ready to sell the weapons and delivery means to anyone.  The draft law N 0076 denouncing the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) of July 1, 1968 was submitted to the Ukrainian parliament on March 20. The goal to make Ukraine a nuclear state is stated in the program of neo-Nazi Svoboda Party, which has representation within the ranks of the Kiev-based ruling group...

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.

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...

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...

Turkey and Crimea

On 16 March, the people of Crimea will independently determine their own future. Opinion polls show that the overwhelming majority of Crimeans (75-80 percent) have already decided in favour of becoming part of the Russian Federation. Crimea is being given a unique opportunity to reunite with its historic homeland. Several days ago, Barak Obama called the overthrow of the legitimate authorities in Kiev a triumph of democracy. Now Crimea will give President Obama a lesson in democracy...

Obama Chats up Old Friend in Ankara

When the United States President Barack Obama renews a neglected friendship, there has to be a compelling reason for that. There was a time when Obama would have counted Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan as his best friend in the Middle East and spoke of the latter as a role model for the «new Middle East» in the making...

US ‘Joke’ Intel Belies Knowledge of Real Culprits in Downed Jet

Seriously, is that it? US national intelligence presented its «evidence» this week on the shoot-down of the Malaysian airliner over Ukraine. Anyone waiting to see a «smoking gun» implicating Russia and pro-Russian militia in eastern Ukraine in the disaster should have been left underwhelmed by the supposed American «killer evidence». Less smoking gun and more like one of those circus pistols that pop out a joke flag emblazoned with the word «Bang!»... So, on one hand, Russia is implicated, while on the other hand «there is no direct link»...  It seems incredible that the US does not have any images of what really happened on that horrific Thursday afternoon. Unless of course, the US is deliberately suppressing that information  to suit a preordained narrative, aimed precisely at trying to implicate Russia over the disaster...
