Turkey appears to have fully recovered from the ruins of the Ottoman Empire and is back pursuing a renewed ambition, an Islamic Turkish Empire.

Turkey has transformed from a poor underdeveloped nation into the largest Islamic economy, and has recovered sufficiently from its past to defy its Western masters.
 

Despite American objections and Israeli warnings, Turkey orchestrated an Iran-Turkey-Brazil deal for enriched uranium to fuel the Nuclear power stations in Iran; Turkish humanitarian aid cargo ships sailed through questionable territorial waters to Palestine creating turmoil in the Islamic world and beyond.

Turkey’s stranglehold on petroleum supply through pipelines from its territory to the European continent effectively allowed Turkey to exert control over suppliers of oil from the neighboring Islamic countries, currently from Iran, Iraq, Azerbaijan; also negotiations are on the way with Egypt, and the surplus oil from Sudan and possibly Libya.

Egypt, the 2.5 million strong police state, whose ailing 84-year-old president grooming his son to take over the leadership, has found himself fighting for his own existence. The country appears to be heading for a power change and may likely pave the way for the Islamic Brotherhood to rule the land.

Turkey would love nothing more than to see Islamic nations control the shipping through the Suez Canal and of course, the Dardanelles, which is already under Turkish Islamic control. These two passages will effectively dictate East West trade.

The general dislike towards the Americans around the globe, as well as the Israeli mistreatment of the Palestinians are fuelling opportunities for Turkey to take charge and rebuild its empire once more, but this time reaching as far east as Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, Libya, Sudan and possibly parts of eastern Europe.

What is working in Turkey’s favor is the Chinese undervalued currency. If the Chinese Yuan is left to free float–as the western nations would like–to balance out the outstanding gigantic Western debt, the beneficiary will surely be the nations who can provide cheap labor.

Turkey despite its glamorous cities like Istanbul and Ankara is generally underdeveloped. For a short period of time they will rip the benefits until prosperity catches up with them. Then the Asian Islamic and some African counties will become the target, unless someone else taps these labor markets before Turkey…

Turkey can easily manipulate these countries under an Islamic Brotherhood banner and of course playing the intermediary cashing in from both ends.

Just ask yourself, is the world ready for another Turkish empire? Can Turks be trusted at all? Will the Kemalists and the religious fanatics face a new reality? Will Erdogan survive the next election? Just too many questions without answers.

Turkey is certainly ready and flexing its muscles. All the signs indicate a Turkish aggressive posture but this time may not be with guns but economic gains.

In my humble opinion, Turkey and Israel are playing a dangerous game and the loser may very well be the West.

    Congratulations Paul,

    I agree with everything you say. I am sure Turkey is heading towards the building of the Turkish (Ottoman) empire.

    Congratulations also for your literary career.

    Bravo!
