The Balance of Germany’s Turkish Policy
June 12, 2016

The development of relations between the European Union and Turkey is becoming increasingly reminiscent of a long, drawn-out chess game in which both players have decided to rid the game of all logic once and for all. This impression is deceptive, however…

Settling Nagorno-Karabakh and Reviewing the Peripheral Talking Points
April 15, 2016

In the April 11 Voice of America piece «What's Hiding Behind Russia's calls for Peace in Nagorno-Karabakh», Paul Goble claims that Russia is manipulating the Armenian-Azerbaijani dispute over Nagorno-Karabakh, in an effort to gain a greater allegiance from fossil fuel rich Azerbaijan. This view comes across as a dubious conspiracy theory…

Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict Escalated: In Pursuit of Hidden Agenda
April 6, 2016

The sudden aggravation of the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh is fraught with serious consequences. The warring sides, as well as the OSCE (the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) Minsk Group, have to realize that the situation may get out of hand and entail irreversible consequences against the will of the belligerents…

America’s Ally Turkey Again Stirs Anti-Armenian Bigotry
March 16, 2016

On March 11th, a news-report was headlined «VIDEO: Kurds in Turkey Accuse Erdogan for Mass and Genocidal Massacre», but the resurgent fascist-nationalist, and self-righteously Sunni-Islamic, Saudi and US-allied government of Turkey doesn’t hate and despise only Kurds – as horrific as those reports are. (And those videos and pictures make clear the government’s bloody contempt of Kurds.)…

Turkey’s Foreign Military Bases and Their Threat to Stability
January 21, 2016

Rather than view with alarm Turkey’s announcement that it is building at least three military bases abroad, the United States and NATO have welcomed Ankara’s move as a contribution to stability. Nothing could be further from the truth. Turkey’s duplicitous fingerprints are all over support for terrorist groups like the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Jabhat al-Nusra, and Al-Qaeda in Syria and Iraq, Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Tunisia…

Ankara vs. Russia: Caucasus Turns into New Battlefront
December 8, 2015

The NATO allies have flatly refused to side with Turkey in its conflict with Russia. Now Ankara is urgently looking for new opportunities to boost its influence in the region and divert the Russia’s attention making it face other «fronts». Turkey has no time to lose as the relations with Moscow may deteriorate further. It makes Ankara hastily take steps to enhance its energy security, establish a coalition of Turkic states it has been fostering for a long time and complicate the situation in the Caucasus to make Moscow face more problems there…

Massacre Proves Turk, Washington Complicity in Syria Terror
December 3, 2015

On the morning of March 21, 2014, the Syrian village of Kessab was attacked with a combined force of Islamist jihadists and the Turkish army. Among the irregular militia were brigades belonging to the Free Syrian Army, Turkmen tribes and Al Qaeda-linked Al Nusra and the self-proclaimed Islamic State. All were working in tandem in the resulting massacre. And the evidence shows that the Ankara and Washington governments were fully complicit in the atrocity…
