Talking Turkey With Greece: Turkey and Israel’s Marriage of Convenience

... seeking the scorned is, or course, that of Israel and Turkey, who revived a military co-operation agreement in 1996, that goes back to the late Fifties. Again, both states are hardly a paragon of international virtue, supported only consistently by the USA and its strategic acolyte, Britain, but also by Germany, for atavistic business reasons in the case of Turkey, and a contrived feeling of guilt in the case of Israel. Both Israel and Turkey ignore numerous UN resolutions; both fear Russia; their respective ...

Confusing Order in Order to Order

... ‘current situation’ would be more sensible. Short- and long-term The length of periods of order and disorder – and whether they are regional or global - are also relevant if we are to understand what is happening now: if we look at the last three thousand years à la Giambattista Vico’s New Science,2 we can conclude that the world has gone through periods of order and disorder. But Vico was thinking mainly of the Roman world and the disorder of the Dark Ages, which then led to order again; moreover,...

Biden-Victory: After the Election is Before the Election

... he had to take Sarah Palin on board as the Tea party icon in order to keep the Republicans together at all. The election campaign was also crazy: Palin raised conspiracy Theories against Obama, according to which he was a Muslim and not born in the USA, Mc Cain always defended Obama against these baseless accusations and fake news and lost the elections for the Republicans. But that did not mean that the new right-wing brew within the Republicans had come to a standstill. Trump came across this ...

... post-industrial wreckage imposed on the nation, transforming it from an industrial powerhouse to a nation dependent on cheap goods imported from poor nations, had taken its toll. The destructive effect of non-stop wars and military adventures, which destroyed thousands of the nation's young people, and wasted trillions of dollars in actions which made the country less secure, triggered a restless anger, which political leaders and pundits somehow overlooked, and the pollsters missed.
