The union of the USA and Turkey collapses

30
As the RIA News, professor at Princeton University Shukru Hanioglu believes that the alliance of the USA and Turkey, which arose in the face of the threat from the USSR, after the end of the Cold War, loses its foundation.

According to him, many factors contribute to the divergence of countries, including significant cultural differences, regional competition and unequal relations.



In the 1952 year, when Turkey joined NATO, Ankara was considered the "eastern bastion of western democracy." The coincidence of regional interests of the states made the White House loyal to violations of human rights, which were expressed, for example, in a very hard suppression of the left movement.

This position played into the hands of US support for Islamism in the Middle East, which was used as a tool to combat communist ideas. The turning point in this policy was the September 11 2001 attacks in the US, which significantly changed the views of American politicians.

The geopolitical cause of the deterioration of relations between Ankara and Washington was the intervention of NATO troops in Iraq in 2003 year. This invasion has caused Turkey’s concern over the possible restructuring of the US map of the Middle East on its own. Their views on the device of the region began to diverge. State support for Kurdish forces in the Syrian conflict has caused an increase in tensions with Ankara.

Nevertheless, the professor believes that the rupture of Turkey with its western partners in favor of other powers, for example, Russia, is unlikely. Only extraordinary circumstances can lead to this. But on the whole, mutual distrust, criticism and rivalry made the allied relations between Ankara and Washington extremely fragile, concludes Sukru Hanioаниlu.

    You can agree, Erdogan will try to "sit" on several chairs, which will lead to the collapse of Turkey.

      Communists are "leftists."

      difficult times await the new sultan at the wrong time; he donned the turban of the great sultan. he has problems with all neighbors, especially with the Kurds, so he can lose not only his Sulan turban, but his head

      Nedomonarchy, in a country where a large part of the population supports the ideas of democracy, is unlikely to have a long historical path. The civil war, in a country like Turkey, will greatly delight all its neighbors. The Turks, the foreign body in Asia and, over time, the peoples enslaved by it and the countries to which the Turks show aggression will take their toll. Need to wait a bit.

    And who has an alliance with those and others, and even more so between them, two liars and hypocrites, can be strong? Or in the end they will betray, they will stab a knife in the back, or lower, or democratize.

        Do you happen to work as a propagandist in the State Department?
        You talk like Svidomo, svidomye usually work as propagandists in the State Department,
        - horses are very cheap, - there is no other job.

          The horses of their tactics do not change, stubbornly, purely according to the State Department manual, they urge the Russians to ride in order to become free, happy and rich as Ukrainians,
          - it’s difficult for them to do this even if the horses dominate in the commentary tape.
          “Why should I change something?”
          The attack on Russia on all fronts is ongoing, and the most powerful on the information one.
          There is no less popular resource on the network where the State Department mercenaries were not present in large numbers, and mainly Ukrainians, they know the language very cheaply.

        What did you mean to say, sickly? Can you imagine how you DROP your country, if you so express it about its leadership? You should have two letters (DB) from Lavrov’s “winged” phrase on shoulder straps. They would be very suitable for you.

    If we take into account that democracy is a way of managing countries with the global gendarme (USA), then Erdogan’s decision is absolutely correct - now he will be more independent in making decisions if he can withstand an attempt to overthrow after the election.

      Erdogan’s decision, Obama’s decision, Trump’s decision, Putin’s decision, Poroshenko’s decision, Merkel’s decision, Kim Jong-un’s decision ... anyone (even Baghdadi)! - they are all absolutely correct. At least by your logic. For any politician always makes the decision that he considers absolutely right. But you yourself catch the casuistry of your own words, I hope?

        Poroshenko and Merkel can be crossed out - they do not make decisions on geopolitical issues, Washington solves these issues for them, and you can talk to the rest. - there is an option to agree.

    One hundred years later, Turkey is reborn. Although on the other hand, the experience of tyrant rule shows that they will roll back 10-20 years in development, Russia will be in miniature. There will be a great Turkey, with poor people like ours.

          In Russia, such primitive receptions will not work, but the Ukrainians bought because Ukraine is a poor country, all that has come from the Union has been torn apart - nothing new has been created, because they were so easily and ombudsed. The level of salaries, pensions, GDP is at par, that at PPP in Russia is 3-4 higher than Ukrainian.

            you hear, man with a gun at my expense, you yourself will not be from Ukraine? I live here and not there, I don’t have to have a lot of mind with an automatic machine running around the landfills, but to pay it was something to the person who created it, cast parts and assembled - the economy is needed.

            Well, of course, you’ll shoot at people, earn your salary, and spit on you that my father, a doctor with 30 years of experience, receives less than my guard classmate with no experience at all. And the pension is not like everyone else will have, and they will probably give an apartment, not like ordinary people, they have to plow themselves. And not to envy, I am for everyone to make money for themselves, it just infuriates me when freeloaders teach me how to live ...

    Modern Turkey dreams of the former greatness of the Ottoman Empire, an empire that brought great human sacrifice and destruction. There will be no second Ottoman Empire, and Russia will again help in this world. The US wants only one thing to push Turkey and Russia between their heads, Turkey for the world "progressive" community of meat is nothing more. For Russia, Turkey is neither a friend nor an enemy - but, in modern terms, a profitable trading partner.

    "Union of the USA and Turkey is being destroyed"
    I think so. do not wishful thinking. The West still needs Turkey as a battering ram against Russia. For this, Turkey was once admitted to NATO; NATO facilities are still located on its territory.

    Erdogan and his successor have plans for a blessing:
    - Establishment of a “no-fly zone” over the North of the ATS;
    - installation of control and capture of the river. Euphrates with its dams;
    - installation of control (creation of a "sanitary cordon") of the territory of the SAR south of the river. Euphrates;
    - crowding out Kurds outside Turkey;
    - The resolution of territorial disputes on the islands with Greece in their favor.
    At different stages of the implementation of this plan, the interests of Turkey and the United States will either coincide or will not go against the interests of the United States and Turkey.
