Erdogan’s Neo-Ottoman Plans

  • “Let us see how your Islamist friend [Erdogan] behaves after crushing the secular establishment.” — The author to a friend, 2004.
  • To insist on the borders Turkey accepted in the 1923 Treaty of Lausanne “is the greatest injustice to be done to the country and to the nation.” — Turkey’s President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, October 19, 2016.
  • Erdogan’s newfound claims seem to refer not only to wish to regain hegemony to the west (Greece) but also about the south (Syria) and the southeast (Iraq). Turkey evidently wishes to be part of an Iraqi- and Kurdish-led offensive against Mosul, controlled since 2014 by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

  1. Turkije is medespeler in de ‘grand chessboard’ hoofdzakelijk geleid door de VS. Dat zijn vrijwel alle landen van enig belang. ‘America has no permanent friends nor enemies but interests’. Uitspraak van Kissinger. Dat zegt genoeg.
