ISIS342342

The United States has been systematically destroying countries in the Middle East for many years now with only one objective — to get away with plundering their resources while these countries are gripped by crises and wars.   This became quite visible after the US intervened in Libya and Syria in 2011. After the September 11 attacks in 2001, Washington used…

“Ainu Factor” in Japan’s Expansionist Strategy

AIN

Nowadays, Japan is viewed as a country with a seemingly good economy.

But, at the same time, the nation is facing many problems with its economy, the environment and within society, such as population…

0088

In recent years, Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan has been actively promoting an incredibly ambitious, yet extremely risky strategy that can be broadly described as Neo-Ottomanism or attempts to restore the grandeur of the Ottoman Empire. At the same time, he would strive to present Turkey as the defender of the oppressed, the second homeland of all Muslims…

Who’s behind Ankara’s Attempts to Provoke the Next Big War?

TURK35242

It’s hardly a surprise that these days one can come across claims that an overt war is about to be started in Syria on the pages of the German site known as Handelsblatt. The publication argues that once Syrian government forces killed dozens of Turkish soldiers in Idlib on the night of February 28, Ankara is bound to launch…

Why is US Focused on Killing Leaders of Terrorists These Days?

85544

From the very beginning, USA’s battle against Daesh (a terrorist group banned in Russia) looked strange to say the least. Having put together a coalition of more than 60 countries and conducted thousands of combat missions, the “valiant” U.S. Army actually allowed militants from the aforementioned organization to substantially…

Ankara has Shot Itself in the Foot in Syria

ERD3422

Recently, Ankara has crossed the line by transforming its supposed anti-terrorist operation in Syria into a full-fledged invasion. Essentially, it wouldn’t stop in spite of Moscow’s repeated attempts to talk some sense into its partner and the repeated warnings voiced by Damascus. In fact, Ankara has been answering attempts at pursuing deescalation in Syria…

Libyan “Knot” in France–Turkey Ties

GOKSU

Discord and back-and-forth criticism have noticeably intensified between Paris and Ankara recently. While, earlier, disagreements between the two countries primarily concerned the issues of Turkey joining the European Union; refugee and asylum policies; human rights abuses in Turkey, and the French recognition of Armenian genocide in the Ottoman…

Anti-Russian Overtones of Pompeo’s Grand Tour across the CIS

POM3131

Upon declaring Russia “the biggest threat to US national security” in 2015, and passing a bill that puts Russia atop the list of its principal enemies, the United States has been trying to inflict maximum damage upon the now targeted state through all means possible. However, attempts to exert pressure on Europe in a bid to place it in…

USA’s “Persian Golf”

TRM53522

Nowadays, hardly anyone would probably disagree with the statement that the Trump administration’s actions in the Middle East have been more than just careless. With its conduct and policies, Washington is in fact pushing away its key allies in the region, which we can clearly see by following U.S. strategy, first and foremost, in relation to Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Anti-American sentiments have been growing…

Tensions Flare in the Race for the Arctic

NSR3423

For the longest  time the Arctic has been perceived as a low military or strategic priority. Outposts in this part of the world would typically be limited to Arctic research, early warning, and meteorological stations. Ne- vertheless, the big race for the Arctic started as early as in the twentieth century, when various states started to claim lands around the North Pole. Thus, by…
