Turkey – “Middle Kingdom” between the Two Camps

87984

While still a NATO member, Turkey’s foreign policy orientation has made some decisive moves towards the East, shunning its decades long sole NATO – orientation. A graphic representation of this move has not just been Turkey’s cooperation with Russia and Iran in Syria or Turkey’s S-400 defence system deal with Russia—which it did…

Fethullah Gulen Made Turkey anti-American

TU

Turkey, an old US ally in the Middle East, has always been regarded by Washington as a forward outpost. This explains the amount of attention America would pay to both Turkey’s foreign and internal policies, along with all the machinations the White House used to prevent Ankara from seeking rapprochement with Moscow and a number…

S-400 and Turkey: A Middle Eastern Perspective

777

Middle Eastern media outlets have been actively reporting on the delivery of Russia’s S-400 Triumph missile systems purchased by Turkey. The authors of these articles have tried to assess the significance of this deal for Turkey, the reaction of Ankara’s NATO allies and the possible consequences in terms of the regional and…

The US Hegemony and the Politics of Chaos

GR1

If there is a universal problem to be collectively dealt with, it is US hegemony. Manifesting itself in the form of “extreme unilateralism”, US hegemony certainly has caused more damage to the world than one can even imagine, ranging from toppling democratically elected governments to installing dictatorships and initiating wars killing…

The Yemen Tragedy Further Fueled by the West and Its Allies

33

A most sophisticated demagogy, blatant falsifying of facts, impudent interpretation of events with everything going upside down, these are the thoughts that come to one’s mind when one reads another forgery concocted in the West. We mean the statement addressed to Iran calling…

Erdogan’s Risky Geopolitical Pirouette

IM634522

Turkey’s economy has been in increasingly difficult straits for months, especially since the failed July 2016 coup attempt. The latest move by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to fire his central bank head and replace him with a more amenable loyalist has already resulted in the largest one-time interest rate cut in the bank’s history. Will this be enough to revive…

WIll Shake Up at IAEA Impact Iran?

AMANo

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief Yukiya Amano’s passing has stirred up suspicion and further tensions amid US-Iranian tensions. Amano was 72 years old and as of mid July 2019 had already begun preparing to step down due to poor health. A July 18 AFP-JIJI article titled, “Japanese IAEA head Yukiya Amano to step down next year for health reasons…

West’s Relations with the White Helmets have gone Stale

WH453432

At long last, Western sponsors of the so-called “humanitarian group” White Helmets have woken up to the fact that their love affair with these pseudo-humanitarians is more damaging than beneficial, which in turn has invoked a number of problems. The White Helmets which have been exposed as a propaganda operation…

Why Should Iran be Cherished and Defended?

4534322

As I pen this short essay, Iran is standing against the mightiest nation on earth. It is facing tremendous danger; of annihilation even, if the world does not wake up fast, and rush to its rescue. Stunning Iranian cities are in danger, but above all, its people: proud and beautiful, creative, formed by one of the oldest and…

The Great Set-Up – Is Washington Postering the UK against Iran?

IRC5453411

Who needs enemies when one can befriend the United States of America? And indeed after being baited by Washington to seize one of Iran’s tankers on the premise that the said-tanker was in violation of Britain’s decision to bar Syria from importing crude oil, the UK, America’s very…

Ongoing Armed Conflict in Yemen is Humanity’s Shame

YEM342222

It seems that nobody is willing to pay attention to the fact that the ongoing armed conflict in the poorest Arab country of the world – Yemen, has recently passed the five year mark. Throughout this time the country would be protected by a resistance movement of the Houthi insurgency from the Ansar Allah movement together with those…

Washington on the Losing Side of the US-Iranian Standoff

7766

While occasionally reading the outright lies and canards poured by the Western mass media on the common reader, one cannot help wondering what kind of dementia one must possess in order to renounce their conscience or professional journalist’s duty just to make an extra buck. There are many examples of this phenomenon. The other day…
