Erdogan on the offensive: signs of a revival of the Ottoman Empire

Turkey created its buffer zone in Syria, forms an army of pro-Turkish militants, sent troops to Libya. Erdogan argues with Trump, is rude to Germany and France, accuses Israel of terrorism and compares it with the Third Reich. Erdogan sets the conditions for Russia. In fact, we see the revival of the Ottoman Empire, the creation of the "red caliphate" of the new Sultan Erdogan.


Ottoman Revival


After the destruction of the Soviet Union, Turkey gradually began to build a new military-political and economic policy in the regions that were formerly part of the fallen Ottoman Empire. In the Balkans, the Middle East and the Caucasus. This process was especially noticeable under Recep Erdogan (the head of the Turkish government since 2003 and the president of the state since 2014).

Turkey intervened in the war in Iraq and Syria, which was connected both with the Kurdish issue threatening the security of the Republic of Turkey and with economic interests. In addition, Ankara began to actively intervene in the affairs of Iraq and Syria, since as they were destroyed and their military-economic power grew, they began to believe that these countries were included in its sphere of influence as former parts of the Ottoman Empire. The Turks themselves and with the help of pro-Turkish gangs occupied a part of Syria, creating their own army and a new Syria there, fully oriented to Ankara. Now Ankara is transferring its militants, whom it supports with regular forces, to Libya. There Erdogan, together with Qatar, relies on the Government of National Accord, led by Saraj in Tripoli.

In Turkey itself, under Erdogan’s rule, a course towards the Islamization of society is clearly visible. At universities, former centers of democracy and freedom, mosques are being built. The ban on wearing the hijab in public places has been lifted. The conservative “village” is increasingly putting pressure on large cities where pro-Western secular ethics have dominated for a long time. The number of schools for imams is growing. Formally, Turkey is still a secular state, but in general, the main course on the Islamization of society and the country is visible to the naked eye.

Erdogan himself does not act as a democratically elected president, but as a caliph and sultan - the head of the Muslim and Turkic world. New Turkey - the "red caliphate", is positioned as the center of the Islamic and Turkic world, and Erdogan - as the head of all Muslims. Ankara claims to be the leader of the "Turkic European Union" (Turan), trying to unite the Turkic states around itself - Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. Turkey has its own interests in Crimea, Tatarstan and Bashkiria. In 2009, the Turkic Council was established with headquarters in Istanbul.

Great Power Ambitions


Having decided that Russia is creeping into its sphere of influence, Ankara allowed itself to go into a frank conflict by shooting down a Russian military plane. Erdogan allows himself injections in the direction of the United States. For example, on the issue of US policy in the Middle East or the supply of F-35 fighters. The Turkish president calls Israel a terrorist state and even compares it with Nazi Germany, and it gets away with it. The Red Sultan threatens the European Union by blackmailing European capitals with hordes of refugees whom they are threatening to release from the camps and let them into “fertile” Europe. Erdogan criticizes Merkel and is rude to Macron (on the issue of Cyprus and Libya).

Ankara sent a landing fleet to the shores of Libya, and Paris, having accused Turkey of increasing regional tension, is strengthening its military alliance with Athens and is planning to send ships to the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea to support Greece in a dispute with Turkey. The tension between Turkey and Greece, Cyprus has increased significantly. Relations between Turkey and Greece are traditionally hostile, despite the fact that both countries are members of NATO. In 1974, Turkish troops landed in Cyprus, captured part of the island and created the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, recognized only by Ankara. A new round of conflict between Ankara and Athens is caused by a dispute over the ownership of energy resources in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Turkey's participation in the gas war


Ankara quite successfully thwarted Moscow's plans in Syria. The “Turkish stream” was reduced from 4 to 2 threads, while Erdogan received a trump card in the case of blackmailing Moscow. Ankara also significantly cut purchases of Russian gas, but increased purchases from other sources. In 2019, Ankara opened the Trans-Anatolian Gas Pipeline (TANAP) - a gas pipeline from Azerbaijan through Georgia and Turkey to the Greek border. Further, the Turks plan to commission the Trans-Caspian gas pipeline, which will connect Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan, it is possible that Kazakhstan. That is, Turkey is turning into a major gas hub.

Now Ankara breaks into the war in Libya, which also has energy prerequisites. Turkey, in alliance with Qatar, through the Sarajah government in Tripoli, seeks to gain control of the Libyan maritime zone in order to threaten a promising gas pipeline to Europe from large fields in the Eastern Mediterranean. The zones are interconnected, which allows Ankara to dictate the conditions for the construction of the pipe. Turkey and Qatar are opposed by another “gas” coalition - Saudi Arabia, Israel, Egypt, Sudan and Russia, which are fighting at the hands of the army of Marshal Haftar. The interests of France, the Republic of Cyprus and Greece adjoin them. That is, Libya has become a battlefield for serious players.

                Among other things, Israel is dreaming of chopping off the EAO.

                  Turkey is our neighbor, whether we want it or not.
                  Erdogan is a strong ruler with great ambitions.
                  For Turkey, this is more a plus than a minus.
                  For neighbors - that's how they can. You can quarrel. And you can turn it to your advantage. Just take into account the nature of the neighbor so that they do not sit on the neck. Nip is so tough. But also leave him room for maneuver to get out of the conflict without losing face.

                  But so it is necessary to behave with ALMOST any other neighbors. With the exception of those whose policies are based solely on Russophobia - for the Baltic States, Poland and Kiev, there is no need to leave opportunities to save face (it still will not help)

          In July 1938, Turkey, in response to a proposal by Germany to join the Axis countries
          stated that Turkey did not intend to revive the Ottoman Empire.

        Travel companion, speak?
        A good word, but it cannot be applied to this situation.
        Correctly, the article focuses on questions.
        1. Gas pipeline.
        2. Syria.
        3.Livia.

        Still forgotten the construction of Akku, transmission C400.
        Turkey is a more flexible and more fit player, in the place where events unfold.
        Tricks of the Turks (in Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, etc.) are not forgotten.
        Even the translation of Kazakhstan from Cyrillic to Latin is the "concern" of the Turks.

        On the other hand, all the "merits" of the Turks are based on miscalculations of the Kremlin and the gallery.
        If we do not mind, then who will object?

        hi
        Erdogan is a master of political "slalom." A week ago, he was “darkness-darkness” with Putin, and the day before yesterday - an ultimatum to the same Putin. Last week, he shook Trump's hand for 3 minutes, and today he threatens him with a finger for the "deal of the century" in Israel. From such a dear partner, red flags should be fenced off and no syu-syu-syu, only pragmatism based on its own benefits.

          Greetings, Eugene


          Hi Dmitry! I am glad to see ... :))

          Good joke, but here is the link - https://www.bgonair.bg/a/2-bulgaria/185507-upotrebata-na-pestitsidi-v-turtsiya-narasnala-7-pati-za-poslednite-40-g

          This is a study by the Bulgarian Food Safety Agency, as well as Greenpies. By the way, what I like about the EU is the rules and laws. If not for them, our great and mighty and greedy landowners would fill the land and nature with pesticides worse than Turkish ones. laughing

          But I can give you a hint - how I choose tomatoes. The first - it is necessary that they do not look very beautiful (it removes Dutch and Spanish plastic products from the selection right away) and the second - I smell the tomatoes - if I smell of tomatoes, I buy them. If you don’t smell anything, I don’t take it. drinks

          And when I buy tomato puree or salsa, I buy my native or Italian. Here the Italians do not compromise with tomatoes, it’s sacred! :)

              Ooooo Dmitry congratulations, wonderful tomatoes! And probably deliciously excellent. I envy nobly, I have nowhere to plant in Sofia and if I buy a private house I want to be in the dense Rhodope Mountains, where there is snow and bears :)

              I give an idea - you can look for pink seeds. They are also very tasty.

                      Well, they are now, but we are in an open union without borders and restrictions, and the EU subsidizes agriculture very heavily. So we do not have the right to restrict products from other EU countries. But this is not a market. Our products are simply more expensive than Dutch and Spanish tomatoes.

      Interestingly, he knows about the occupation of a century ago by the French, British, Greeks, the metropolis of the former empire.
      But the "gratitude" for helping Soviet Russia (in gold and weapons) was paid off by Ataturk’s permission to the same British and French to create camps to train the invasion forces in Transcaucasia. A riot in Chechnya in order to cut off the Red Army garrisons from Georgia, the purpose of the invasion.
      A kind of gratitude, however.
      ALWAYS need to be prepared for the fact that agreements with the "infidels" are not worth the paper on which they are written. About verbal agreements in general should be forgotten.

      Turkey has never been our ally.
      And even more so - a friend!
      Since the capture of Constantinople by the Ottoman Turks in 1453. Since the destruction by the Turks of the cradle of Orthodox civilization. Istanbul called her ...
      Countless Russian-Turkish wars are proof of this.
      I can’t imagine against which enemy the Russian and Turkish soldiers can stand shoulder to shoulder. Against the invasion of Martian tripods? ..
      Let Erdogan imagine himself a new sultan. Now every woodpecker in the Middle East is the new Saladdin in his own dreams.
      Decided to make Turkey a world gas hub? This is destroyed by one termination of the contract, one strike of cruise missiles. Which will not be able to reflect the missile defense systems collected from us.
      Climbing to North Africa? Let's see how it gets out. During the First World War, it somehow sucks ...
      Decided to crush the Kurds? Let him pray that the provinces completely populated by them do not fall off from Turkey ...
      Already in the XXI century, the Turks managed to inspire us. Chechen terrorists were welcomed and trained, equipped and trained the Georgian army.
      God save us from such friends! But the Russian people will figure it out.
      No wonder they say: "Enemy or friend - you don’t recognize all of a sudden!"

      I agree with all my previous colleagues, especially with Huntsman 2. Yes, politics is such a vile thing that forces you to crush the desire to go with your fist into the face of the “dear partner”, but on the contrary - kindly smile at him. But the "dear partner" and even somewhere "friend" is not asleep - he climbs into your house by all means and is not grateful to you at all.
      Here I went to Zen yesterday morning and was horrified - a continuous article about the heroes of the Turkish TV series "The Magnificent Century", as well as seals. And absolutely nothing about our country with you. This situation grew day by day, and yesterday reached an apotheosis. Today the opposite is true. It can be seen that someone with access to the necessary levers woke up and corrected the situation.
      Yes, of course, people watch TV less and less, and perhaps the television channel showing the series launched “agents of influence” into the popular Zen resource. But they turned out to be agents of Turkish influence in our country. Day after day, analyzing the bones of the characters of the series, really very good, these people, when unobtrusive, and when openly - with admiration in the texts, glorified the history of the Ottoman Empire, skillfully convincing readers of its progressive essence and the need for its revival. And all this was broadcast primarily by the Muslim part of our population, especially Crimeans. I read most of the articles. Believe me, they are written by professional psychologists who know their job. Some commentators were even indignant: now we know the history of the Ottomans better than our own - this, they say, how? They would write about themselves! ...
      Such is the policy. You are at the door, and he is at the window at you, and even with claims to your house.

Once I had to go to the political department. The hotel had many bugs, so I decided to spend the night at the station. At night, a company of Armenian soldiers burst into the courtyard. I, as an agitator, talked to them. They listened, but did not believe in assessing the situation in Turkey. When finished, one thanked for the conversation, but "the Turks must be cut." I again began to tell that in Turkey there are peasants, workers, landowners and capitalists and that one cannot approach everyone the same. The soldiers agreed with everything, but "the Turks still need to be cut"

That's the whole point that they knew that Turkey, sooner or later, will begin to pose Russia in a pose, as Ukraine has been successfully doing for many years.

        And this despite the fact that a long-term contract with Ukraine is still concluded. The question is, why was it needed at all, this South Stream? I read somewhere that even before Nord Stream 1 and all these pipes to Turkey, the available transit capacities were enough to double gas supplies to Europe! The only ones who have warmed up well here are Rotenberg, Timchenko, a couple more names. The same is true with the Power of Siberia to China.

    What kind of alarmism is Turkey from all sides squeezed by former opponents of the Ottoman Empire, each of which is stronger than Turkey in its capabilities and can create coalitions with other countries:
    - from the west of NATO;
    - from the north of the Russian Federation;
    - from the east of Iran;
    - from the south, Arab countries.

    Turkish influence in Syria has narrowed to the core of Itlib province and the border strip along the north of Syria - where Turkomans live. Turkish influence in Libya is balanced by the influence of Egypt and Algeria. That’s the whole “new Ottoman Empire”.

    Another thing is that Turkey is quite capable of joining the neighboring small countries - Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia - depending on the position of NATO, the Russian Federation and Iran, of course.

    Erdogan himself does not act as a democratically elected president, but as a caliph and sultan - the head of the Muslim and Turkic world.

    And others differently? Won Trump was elected democratically. And how does it behave? Like an "elephant in a china shop." He "cares" about everything.
    As for the same Turkey. This is an objective law of development. The stronger the country becomes (if it is not limited by any prohibitions from the Second World War), then its intentions in expansion are also manifested. The same Turkey is dreaming of restoring the Ottoman Empire, the same Iran is dreaming of exporting the Islamic revolution, the very United States is crawling "in all holes with a plug."
    The stronger the state, the greater its desire to influence the world around it. Military way or peace - the third thing

    Erdogan would certainly like that. But the fact that there are some signs of a "revival" of the Ottoman Empire is a utopia. The Ottoman Empire was built by fire and blood, oppression and enslavement. Nothing else held her together, which is why it fell apart.

    Yes, wherever possible, the Turks will spread their influence. And this is being done quite openly, the ideology of the Yeni Osmanlar - new Ottomans is openly preached in Turkey and laid down in the AKP program by its ideologist A. Davutoglu.

    But against this, there are many other factors that will be used by external players - the past sins of the Ottoman Empire (genocide of Christians and not only), the opposition of the Arab world (the Turks even Arabs tried to assimilate O. I. at sunset), Kurds, Iran, etc. .

      Nothing strange. Constantinople is the second Rome, the imperial capital. Mecca and Jerusalem are sacred cities, but they are not drawn to the status of empire capitals.

      Both the Turks and the Muslims as a whole borrowed a lot from the Byzantine Empire. For example, symbols - a star and a crescent, these are symbols of the Byzantine Empire, initially they have nothing to do with Islam.

      And now? See how many states have a star and a crescent on their flags?

    Erdogan does not have sufficient resources to create an empire. Erdogan's function is to provide test signals to the input of the systems under test. Monitoring the response of the system gives the interested person information about its state. Knowing the state of the system, you can manage it.
