Trump tries to consolidate his government’s power at home and abroad by supporting Israel’s ambitions though it further upset the balance in the Middle East.
Turkey has been consistently improving bilateral ties with countries like the U.K. and yet opposition political figures desperately complain to foreign governments about the current government instead of reaching out to their own people.
President Erdogan’s Istanbul manifesto is important not only because it puts forward his strategies in the lead-up to the June 24 elections but it also sets out his political vision.
With the oppositional bloc relying mostly on emotions and ideology rather than politics and visionary alliances, they have now found themselves leading toward the elections without a strategy.
The most recent developments in Turkey indicate that the country is a battleground between Westernism and native/national politics. This power struggle became crystal clear during the coup attempt on July 15, 2016.
The June 24 snap elections gives Turkish people a chance to end Western hegemony in their own bureaucratic system.
Five reasons for why Turkey is holding snap elections:
U.S. President Donald Trump’s response to the recent chemical attack in Syria would keep the U.S. presence in the region while also deepening the crisis.
Washington should consider Ankara as an important ally instead of depending on terrorist organizations since it has proven its determination and success on the ground.
The chaotic divergence in the U.S. administration aside, Washington has no complete policy for Syria.
