Turkey vs. Iran: The Battle for Influence

Posted on November 22, 2011 at 0:30 0 Comments

Even before the Arab Spring, the Turkish government has been carefully positioning itself to emerge as a new regional hegemon, hoping to play an even more critical role in Iraq and the larger Middle East. The U.S. plans to withdraw all combat forces from Iraq by the years end while nations of the Arab Spring—Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya—face the challenge of nascent governments, post-revolution reforms, and violence including in Syria along Turkey’s own borders. A distinct power vacuum is…

We refuse to cover hatred but allow those that choose for a constructive dialogue.If there is a conflict we look for the causes, and we write about actors which try to find solutions. We want to show the world that journalists aren't part of conflicts, but we…See More
