Annergret Kramp-Karrenbauer and her revolutionary foreign policy objectives for Germany

... we are together. In fact, the NATO partners in the cold war generally followed their promises to confront former Soviet Union, which was supposed to be the number one geo-political adversary to the NATO. But in our day, the cracks are emerging, while Turkey despite the warnings of the NATO other members, decided to reach a deal with Russia to purchase Russian made S-400 defense system. Furthermore, the country against the will of other NATO members launched offensive in northern Syria. It seems that ...

Russian Diplomacy with Turkey over Syria

... Recep Erdogan does not share the same gratitude for the YPGs as the U.S. Erdogan believes the YPGs represent an extension of the Kurdish Worker’s Party, more commonly known as the PKK, which he views as a terrorist group. The question remains how will Turkey treat the Syrian Kurds once U.S. forces leave the region? This question presents a dilemma for U.S. policy makers. Although the U.S. has achieved a great victory against IS it does not want to see their close allies, the Kurds, targeted by Turkey ...

... presidents were together at the United Nations, we tried very hard to get Rouhani to reach out to Trump with a three-minute video suggesting a one-on-one conversation in New York, or a presidential summit in Istanbul that would include the Presidents of Turkey and Syria.

The S-400 has been described, as of 2017, as "one of the best air-defense systems currently made." As soon as S-400 is deployed in Turkey, Ankara is supposed to host Russian military Technicians and advisors in order to materialize its deployment and maintenance. More Russian military advisors mean more leverage of Putin in the decision making of Ankara. Actually, the NATO members ...

The (First) Russo-American Cyberwar: How Obama Lost & Putin Won, Ensuring a Trump Victory

... Russia’s desired outcomes being achieved in the US, the UK, Italy, Bulgaria, and Moldova, while seeing trends favorable to its interests significantly increased in places like Germany and Austria. Furthermore, U.S. and NATO “ally” Turkey has taken a decidedly sharp anti-democratic and anti-Western plunge and is clearly cozying up to Russia. 2017 may be even better for the Kremlin, and even worse for what is still referred to as the West. This is the new face of warfare, one ...

Does Russia still have a “Kurdish card” to play in Syria?

... between Moscow and the Kurds has provided Russia with a “Kurdish card”, that is, the ability to modulate its support to various Kurdish national ambitions throughout the Middle East, depending on what the Kremlin was seeking to obtain from Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran. The current Syrian crisis is no exception and has promoted the Russian-Kurdish (PYD[1]) partnership, especially during the period of harsh tensions between Russia and Turkey. This partnership has three goals: fighting terrorism,...

Western Democracy Is on Trial, More than Any Time Since WWII

... okay with the erosion of democratic values and a deeply undemocratic military occupation of the West Bank as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict stifles Israel’s left and drives its people further to the right. The assault on democratic norms in Turkey by its government is far worse. Still worse in that region, the Arab Spring has, in general, become a massive tragedy. Archive Additionally, democracy by no means appears stable or secure overall in either Sub-Saharan Africa or in Latin America....

Turkish Stream is an undertaking of four lines, the first of which would deliver gas solely to Turkey, while the remaining three would expand to Europe via an energy hub on the Greek-Turkish border, although their ultimate destinations remain ...

“Close your eyes and you’re not sure if it’s an Israeli or a Saudi speaking.” That’s what Daniel Levy, Middle East director at the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), told The New York Times in an article dated March 31st. The ECFR, which has called for a greater role for Al Qaeda in Algeria to “promote democracy,” is funded mainly by George Soros.
