Although the agenda is predominantly in the Middle East, the fact that the witch cauldron is not the only one here to boil. In other parts of the world there are some other nests of intrigue, but for some reason, they are either not raised or are being portrayed in a different way than they appear. Therefore, the difference between the nests of intrigue centred in the Middle East and especially in the Western world confronts directly related to the point of view and the concepts used in this context.
In this context, the Middle East is not only a conflict area of the covered power struggle in other parts of the world but also a place where the new alliance processes are laid out and tested. In the broader sense, the power struggle over the “Expanded Middle East”, which also includes the Caucasus, Central Asia and South Asia, has a very important place in setting the name of the 21st century and determining the new master or lords.
For this reason, it is very important that the US hegemony and its allegations are to be disrupted and the fact of “the multi-polar world” to be accepted by the US. For the multi-polar world, the fundamental pillars that make the US a superpower to be eliminated. This points to two pillars: Europe and Asia-Pacific.
For this reason, the international system before the Second World War and its actors are in great need. Because the developments that open the way for the US to become a superpower are hidden here. It is likely that this lies under the fact that we are once again witnessing the crises between the two wars (such as the 1929 Economic Depression), the concepts (such as racism, xenophobia), the distorted values (all approaches such as “Superior race”, “Arian race”) and unsuccessful institutional structures (such as the League of Nations).
It is not a coincidence that the US is systematically pushed to the bottleneck, weakened and isolated. The decisive factor in this “anti-US” process is that it is still not aware of it. The US still thinks that it still determines the rules of the game whereas the truth is very different. The President Donald Trump’s unrealistic policies that are so-called “preventive” policies are only further strengthening this axis and accelerating the inevitable end.
It is of course very important for the West to enter into a settlement within itself and to promote it. Germany’s recent outlets in this context should not be considered only of Berlin-based. It will not be so easy for “the others” unless Europe is independent and challenge the US. Berlin, of course, is aware of it, and it is pursuing to become a “third power” from the struggle between the US and the “others”. They call it the multidimensional foreign policy based on balance.
“Strong Germany” – “Independent and Strong Europe”
In this context, the messages given by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas at the 16th Ambassadors’ Conference in Berlin on August 27, 2018, are quite striking. Maas, who expressed that they desire to maintain strong relations with the US, which Germany defines as the most important ally outside Europe, but expressing that they cannot remain unconcerned about the change stemming from Washington, outlined the return of Germany to its historical codes as follows:
- The US administration must abandon the “America First” mentality.
- The policy that Trump leads to great concerns to the transatlantic alliance.
- The fact that Europe is defined as the enemy of the US together with Russia and China and the simultaneous questioning of NATO alliance deeply affect our point of view to the US.
- A new strategic reality is emerging that Europe (and of course, Germany) must deal with.
- “It is our goal to build an independent and strong Europe, in this context a new and balanced partnership with the US is required.
- The idea of “Europe First” should be abandoned for multilateral alliances.
We must gain new allies
Explanations-developments, of course, are not limited to this. In this regard, Germany also gives profound messages on the intellectual level as seen in the example of the German historian Christoph von Marschall…
On the other hand, the reactions to Germany’s return to its historical codes are also very remarkable. The operations taken in Germany through “Shadow Germany” are very important here. In my next article, I will try to address the “New Germany” through the German historian Christoph von Marschall and the external actors, their goals and the power struggle in Germany that are influential in this transformation.
