Continuing Dr. Pipes' Observances of Turkiye and Mediterranean Subterfuge

Reader comment on item: Taking a Look at Turkey

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jan 27, 2022 at 11:34

Dr. Pipes: are we seeing further evidence that energy (in)dependence in the region is now taking on a more dramatic role now that the shifting paradigm in the region shows that Turkiye still seeks to dominate and recover its former premiere role in the Middle East?

Daniel Pipes replies:

Erdo─čan is not foolish enough to recreate the Ottoman Empire but he does seek predominate influence in the Balkans and Middle East, just as of old, yes.
