Deploying soldiers into Iraq and downing Russian SU-24 bomber are the two recent events that have marked Ankara's failure. If Saudi execution of a prominent Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr is an 'internal matter', why condemn Egypt? Meanwhile the foreign and domestic policies of the ruling party destroy Turkey's interests, Ankara has to pay for it.
There's more talk of World War III. Pope Francis, who recently returned from a trip on which he faced many forms of warfare, said he saw - "a world filled with fighting," "a war-torn world." But how does a world war come into the picture in the light of recent events? Currently there are three conflicts that can provoke a global war in the world.
Twenty first century marks the beginning of a new era when geographical and political maps and borders of the Middle East will be revisited and reviewed. Just as during the phase of the Sykes-Picot agreement that came as a result of the World War I which witnessed the ascension of new empires and the collapse of others.
What if the Middle East is to be fragmented back to the borders before WWI, when the lands were under control of the Ottoman Empire? Israel has had its interests in this major divide for decades. Today history repeats itself, and this new map of the Arab region is closer to reality.
Daesh military strategy shifted from defensive to offensive, due to Russia's involvement in Syira in cooperation with Iran. The US was hoping that the Islamic caliphate would oust Assad, but it finds itself entering a war against the caliphate, asking its Arab allies to stop funding the terrorists.
Journalists in the US complain of the level of repression they have been subjected to by the Obama administration over recent decades. The phrase Lügenpresse ('lying media') has emerged in German-speaking countries. The credibility of even the most renowned media sources is at rock bottom.
Daesh - is a consequence. The reason for its appearance has been an American monopoly that arose after the collapse of the USSR, and has continued for the past 25 years. Washington's private sole control over the international arena has turned it into a screaming brat, who does the first thing that comes into its head – and only thinks later.
The US is competing with Russia in carrying out a more active foreign policy with the rapidly-expanding state of China. We can see this very clearly in the events going on in the Middle East, in the South China Sea, and in Ukraine. Security agreements are now vitally needed for a stable world. The main priority now is establishing peace in Syria.
In 1960 a US U-2 spy plane took off from Turkish Incirlik air base entering Soviet airspace, where it got shot down. This U-2 incident happened in the time of Cold War. History repeats, but why now? As one gets closer to the answer more questions arise. When asking "why a Russian plane?" another question is weighing on - "who did this to Turkey?"
UN Resolution on Syria – strongly emphasizes the “close interconnection between the cease-fire and the parallel political process.” Downscaling this conflict may significantly calm tensions in the Middle East. However, one problem remains. The US, France, and Great Britain created “a growing influx of terrorists in Syria.”
