Turkish-Russian rapprochement scares the EU

According to the forecast of scientists, analysts, experienced politicians, can well assess the political situation of the day, the EU has not left its former strength, and his life will not be long.

Unpleasant odors emanating from the dishes that are prepared in the kitchen of the EU, were heard as early as the year before, and in turn to the issue in his articles over the past two years, from time to time. EU grows old, and its future is far from brilliant.

With the adoption of the Greek Cypriot government in the structure 1 May 2004, the EU has lost a lot in terms of its quality and firmness. Particularly with the inclusion of Romania and Bulgaria, and Turkey on the verge of holding the EU's loss of union became even more than expected.

In Turkish society, the number of those wishing to join the EU fluctuates between 20 and 30%. While the country is deliberately forced to wait outside the door, this percentage may drop to a single digit. A few more years, and the desire for membership in the union, which is at least a little preserved, will evaporate and become only a memory of the past.

Turkish politicians have seen the true face of the EU. they are tired now that the European Union uses the Greek Cypriot authorities as a pawn in order to delay Turkey and to put it in the Union. Turkey's political leadership, which understands that the country will not see the good in the West, was forced to turn to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and started the Turkish-Russian rapprochement.

Now Turkey - the undisputed leader in the region covering the Middle East, the Balkans and the Caucasus. Both political and military and economic leader. In the west, nor Greece, the spoiled child of the EU, neither Bulgaria, nor the countries of the former Yugoslavia do not go to any comparison. In the Middle East and the Caucasus, too, there is no state that could compete with us.

Germany - the main force of the European Union. Behind it is France, followed - Italy. Italy is in decline, France - on the verge of collapse. Cases in their economies are not going well. Italy is waiting for the right conditions and opportunities to break away from the EU.

Germany is trying to pull the EU alone, but weak countries whose economies are sinking, such as Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, get underfoot.

The latest crisis, which occurred between Germany and Turkey, destroyed all balances (German authorities have canceled rallies in support of the referendum, scheduled for April 16 in Turkey, with the participation of Turkish politicians - approx. lane).. The convergence taking place between Russia and Turkey, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, frightened both Germany and the United States.

US behind the scenes used extreme pressure, blackmail Turkey, showered her threats to these relations did not develop further. But at least for now under the newly elected President of Donald Trump's apparent policy intention is to make friends, not to quarrel with Turkey. If the president will be able to curb the Trump State Department, the Pentagon and the CIA, in the relations between Turkey and the US can start a new spring. In addition, with regard to the Russian President Trump is thinking about building friendship instead of the beginning of the Cold War, and cooperation with Russia on some issues.

The problem that has arisen in recent days in relations between Germany and Turkey - the largest of all that took place during the last years 99. Germany wary as a regional power Turkey and four million Turks living in Germany. Similarly, in Germany there are concerns about Russia and the fear of it. Therefore, Germany is also opposed to the US rapprochement with Turkey and Russia.

The election of the president of the United States, Donald Trump, which the Pentagon and the CIA can not subjugate, Turkey's emergence as a significant force in the region, President Putin's desire to once again make Russia a world power - all this heralds the establishment of a completely different political balance. We wait and see, but this time Turkey will not be driven and the losing side, and will guide and acquire ...
