Turkey and the United States Relation

 In the past few days, the conflict between Turkey and the United States has intensified.

In the face of U.S. sanctions and pressure, Turkish President Erdogan strongly responded to sever ties with the U.S., saying that he would "find new friends and allies."

Turkey's public failure reflects Turkey's overall relationship with the West has become increasingly alienated, and strategic differences have increased in recent years.

In the future, where will the relationship between Turkey and the United States go?

Why are Turkey and the United States so fierce?  

The United States recently announced new sanctions against Iran, Russia, and Turkey, warning that these three countries will face heavier "penalties" if they do not meet the US conditions. Since then, the three countries have interacted closely and joined forces to counter pressure from the United States.


Why is Turkey so procrastinated?

The United States launched an "economic war" against Turkmenistan. Where is the relationship between Turkmenistan and the United States? "

The U.S. "stabbing behind" U.S.-Turkey relations affects the Middle East military situation.

 

Why are Turkey and the United States so fierce? Why is Turkey so procrastinated? Here, I will do a rough analysis:

1. Turkey's strategic tone: Neo-Ottomanism

The article "From Pan-Turkic to Neo-Ottomanism-Adjustment of Turkish Foreign Policy after the Cold War" is the main tone of Turkish foreign policy because Erdogan's re-election clearly pointed out: Erdogan's neo-Ottomanism.

Neo-Ottomanism, as the name suggests, is a return to the glory of the Ottoman Empire.

Turkey will compete with Saudi Arabia, Iran, Israel, and Egypt in the Middle East, waiting for the opportunity (in a political sense) to become the new Ottoman Empire.

 

The article "From Pan-Turkism to Neo-Ottomanism-On the adjustment of Turkish foreign policy after the Cold War" mentioned traditional Turkish hegemony Pan-Turkism.

 

Pan-Turkism is a hegemonic strategy that emphasizes geo-ethnicity and religion.

 

Its core proposition is to establish a unified government in all Turkic-speaking countries and regions (Turkey, Cyprus, Azerbaijan, the five Central Asian countries, and Xinjiang).

 

However, the pan-Turkic strategy centered on geographical and geographical attractiveness is clearly unsuitable for the current international situation.

 

To maximize political influence, indirectly establishing the authority of a major power in the Middle East is more in line with Turkey's strategy.

 

2. Get rid of the marginalization of regional affairs, "flanking brothers" play the role of soy sauce and enter the throne of the Middle East, Arab and Muslim worlds!

 

During the Cold War, due to Turkey's special geographical location, especially the United States, Turkey favored the West.

 

To counter the expansion of the Soviet sphere of influence, the United States centered on Turkey to contain the Soviet Union's expansion in the Black Sea, the Mediterranean, and the Caucasus. It once gave Turkey a lot of aid. In the early days of the Cold War, Turkey and the United States had very close relations.

 

Turkey has not failed the United States. During the Korean War, it actively sent troops to share military pressure.

 

During the Cold War, Turkey was an American outpost against the Soviet Union. It received $259 million in aid from the Marshall Plan. In return to the United States and the Western world, Turkey joined NATO in 1952 and sent troops to participate in the Korean War with the United States.


3. Why are Turkey and the United States so nervous recently?

 

Answer: 1) The conflict between Turkey and the United States has existed for a long time, and the gap between the alliances has been increasing;

 

2) The recent fierce friction between Turkey and the United States is that the conflict of interest between Turkey and the United States is "close to the critical point" and "close to the bottom line of both sides."

 

In fact, the friction between Turkey and the United States existed before it quickly increased. In Turkey, the United States has also encountered strong opposition. This is a compilation of the history of international relations:
