After the rivalry between Russia and Britain over Afghanistan, which became the “Great Game tarih in history, the US and Russia (the Soviet Union) had a big deal over Afghanistan. The invasion of Afghanistan, which began in 1979 and the subsequent resistance, resulted in the collapse of the Soviets in the settlement of a Muslim country. This was the Second Big Game.
Now, the Büyük Third Great Game ”period starts between the USA and China. And this reckoning will be carried out through Afghanistan, Tajikistan, East Turkestan. Rather, the east of Turkestan will be the scene of the hegemony war of two great powers on a global scale such as the USA and China.
So, where do we stand, how do we produce words and power?
I will not go into the details of the US-China competition. This is the subject of another article or articles. I am interested in what will happen in the east of Turkestan. And we; how will we look at these developments as the people of the geography, as the Muslim world, as the Turkish world?
What kind of response? It is of interest to us whether we will stand on the US side, take positions according to the Chinese priorities, or build and act on our own stance, view, priorities.
None of these wars was ours. They used our weaknesses.
Africa’s depth in every frame of the Middle East, the invasion of Afghanistan in Libya, the Arab sectarian crisis of internal conflicts in the world, Turkey towards coup and multinational attempt to attack the Syrian terrorist corridor in the northern Arab-now in the Persian struggle beginners Arab world Turkey ‘ None of the crises we witnessed until our attempts to provoke. Yes, we had weaknesses, wrongs, anger, more problems.
But these conflicts, occupations, terrorist operations, massacres, humiliation, plundering and ruining the geography were not our fight. The supporters of the power struggle on a global scale determined occupation and security strategies through our weaknesses and always marketed their wars with our weaknesses.
Look at the invasion of Afghanistan, the invasion of Iraq, the war in Syria, the war in Yemen, the invasion of Libya, and every crisis that comes to mind in the last thirty years. None of this was our war. They were just wars on our land, only our blood, using us as lead.
