Going old Turkey: a regional power spreads
"A decade ago, Turkey's Foreign Minister Audit of Attalou used to boast his country was on good terms with everyone police fantasia want. less confrontation, less tense attitude. Especially, in the region, he spoke at the Council on foreign, relations with the will of the principal. In. Two thousand three. Zero problems with our neighbors. And the made a huge progress. All, that now seems a distant memory Turkey is growing its international influence and not always with a light touch. The country has been backing Libya's government in its civil war. Last month. The Turkish Defence Minister landed in Libya to inspect his troops and opposition warlord warned them to get out or else. Turkey prompted an angry statement from Egypt last week by allegedly planning gas exploration and Egyptian waters. And yesterday Turkish officials railed against an American company for its dealings with ethnic Kurds in neighboring Syria. That Turkey believes to be terrorists. To some, all this adventurism is reminiscent of past chapter of the country's history when the Ottoman Empire ruled all of Syria and far beyond. Turkey, has been playing an especially prominent role in Syria since protests spread into a full blown civil war. Turkey has really become a meshed in Syria since the start of the our spring, the uprisings that took place in two thousand eleven across the Middle East it back. The Islamist. Movements that initially took to the streets and then took up arms. Nicholas Pelham is our Middle East correspondent. But as those fighters were false back towards its border, it's really stepped into try and protect its southern border, stop any more refugees coming into the country and to provide some sort of safe zone for the proteges, and it's also very nervous about the current state law that emotion the northeast of the country. It feels very threatened by the emergence of Kurdish power on the southern borders, and is it reasonable for Turkey to think that those Kurdish forces are really a threat historic? The have been links between the PK, the cuts down Workers Party, which has been waging a thirty five year a war for. Autonomy and separatism inside Turkey. Many of those fighters did flee sought refuge in Iraq and in Syria, and so Turkey is worried about what it sees very much kind of PKK influenced state emerging on its southern borders. So this year it's been launching pretty heavy attacks inside Iraq, it's been sending tanks across the border. It's established positions inside northern Iraq. It's been carrying out drone bombardments, such two hundred kilometers from its border in Saint, John More, Kurds all the way along its southern border inside Syria inside. Iraq see a new Turkish assault, which is pushing deep into their territory and not just unsettling. Kurdish aspirations for sovereignty in Iraq and Syria, and this is also unnerving Arab leaders as well. Who Turkey pushing deep into territory, which was part of the Turkish Republic predecessor. The Ottoman Empire, which ruled the Middle East centuries until its dissolution about a century ago, which is to say that Turkey is expanding its influence is doing this adventurism beyond Iraq and Syria all over the Middle East of the moment. There's a this year has seen the new intervention of the Turkish, Army. Libya. They came to the rescue of the besieged government of National Accord. In Tripoli, which has been fighting a civil war against a renegade general. Khalifa. After Turkish forces established at base on the borders of Tunisia, we're seeing it's frigates make a bid for control of looking coastline and even ward off French frigates. We're really seeing a substantive increase in Turkish. Power across the Middle East and it's not just happening in Liberia. It's happening in Gaza, which is an ally of Turkey. Turkish forces there have tried to help. Cut Break Its blockade by Saudi Arabia they're. A. Few hundred to a few thousand Turkish forces that are they're wasting more Turkish interested in Yemen civil war. We're seeing interest in a Sudanese port and actually Turkey's largest overseas basis in the point of Africa. So really this is a massive increase in Turkey spread across the middle, East and do you believe that the the the Ottoman history plays into that as a return to former glories? In some way? It's very much the in the rhetoric certainly saw Mr. Osman tropes at the at the height of the Arab spring wanted to appear to be the leader of the Muslim world. He was promoting his version of governance across the region hoping to clone the Turkish model across the Middle East. But since the collapse of Islamist movement since its as from power in Egypt and the retreat of many of its forces, he's really kind of played much more on Turkey's national interests. He's ally domestically with what had been his nationals opposition. He seems to be much more concerned on trying to maximize Turkey's economic claims in the. The Mediterranean this since much more about promoting Turkey's national interests than flying it systems colors. This is really an exercise in in hard power and trying to exploit the weakness of others, the retreat of Europe and America from the Middle East. The policies of many Arab governments, and try and push Turkey to fill what seems to be a vacuum of power across the Middle East, and so is that push to serve Turkey's national interests working is, is it benefiting from this from this expansionism? If you're trying to put together a balance sheet of profit balance sheet? Sheet Turkey has benefited from Khatri investment cutters, loans, and investments have helped prop up the Turkish lira. It may be that country's also hoping to fund part of its military costs in Libya Turkeys, keen to promote its companies when it comes to eventual reconstruction of war-torn Libya, which after all is energy rich state, and so long term, there may be benefits, his critics home highlight, the cost it's estimated that Turkish operations in Syria have cost anything up to about thirty billion dollars, and of course, there is a threat that you're going to see a major escalation. Escalation in the Middle East, which could embroil Turkey. It's not just Turkey is entering the middle, East enforce. It's also Russia. Many Arab states are trying to gain Russian support to push back Turkey, not just Syria Egypt the United Arab Emirates looking to Russian support in Libya, and Egypt is sending its tanks to the Libyan borders. The UN warned that the risk of a of a regional war focused on Libya and beyond that that risk was huge. So this is a massive gamble and it looks as if the stakes are going to be increasingly hyphen
Fresh update on "ottoman" discussed on Lexicon Valley
"The Ottoman Empire into the area where the language spoken would have been Persian and so somebody like Sultan Celine New Persian, he could speak Persian the way at. least a lot of us can speak French or Spanish, and so his Turkish was full of Persian, and then one might want to speak some person. He also would have spoken Arabic as the language of religion the language situation in the Ottoman Empire was fascinating and cannot be done justice to in one episode of anything but there was Persian and Persian trusting language in. That is just like English, it starts as this bristling Lee complicated in terms of endings and conjugation declines language very much like an early Indo European language very much like Latin and Greek old English and old person were of similar structure. Old Person was quote unquote worse in terms of how complicated it was but then the Persian empire took in a great many people. From a great many places who would've learned old Persian as adults and therefore would have broken it down the way we adults breakdown languages we learn after the age of about sixteen and so pretty quickly old person becomes a language that is actually as user friendly as English modern Persian as a language that gives you very few headaches in terms of having to memorize. Lists of congregational patterns et Cetera. It's refreshing as a can of mango flavored bubbly Seltzer. It's absolutely marvelous and also it shows you how things where down over the years words in old Persian tend to be just longer than words in modern Persian because of how these things go. So for example, you can see Old Persian written in the town of the Houston upon a rock face King Darius writing about his exploits and he describes himself as a Shafi A- as Shafi Ah. That's that long word. You know what that is now shah. So Sharia is now just shah that's what happens to words overtime in any case, person was another language of empire. You read about the moguls who ruled India and similar regions for a long time. That's a whole other story. Persian was what they ruled in toxic and Dari those are basically Persian those varieties of Persian language with a great deal of influence and spread even. Today, and it's part of the Indo Iranian sub family of Indo European and so person has relatives. We've probably mostly only heard of pasta these days because of various, very unpleasant things that have been going on there that relate to the United States over the past twenty years. But Pashto is one of these Indo Iranian languages and if German and Icelandic are the way Germanic quote unquote should be an English and Swedish and Dutch are extremely Streamlined Persian is the English Pasta. Is There Icelandic the closest to what old person used to be like? Then the Kerr's they speak Kurdish that's another one of these languages, and there's Baluchi which I only mentioned because in the Baluchistan area skeletons have been found of rhinoceroses that were the size of buildings. It's absolutely fascinating Paris seven theory. There's a whole book written about these things but I always think of these big rhinoceros anyway that Is The Persian story and you know I know it's a little tacky this sort of kitschy sense of you know what the Middle East used to be like but one more piece of Kismet on sorry because it really is musically a great piece of work. This is the overture to Kismet. Inglorious. Monitor phonic sound. This is arranged by the incredible Hershey K. in just a little. This is how Kismet starts a lot of you like this..

"Let's start out today's travel. With Rick Steves with a little old world charm in Hungary when travelling in Europe. You just have to include the great cities on your itinerary. Hungry elegant capital of Budapest is certainly impressive. But there's another side that you should explore as well and that's the country's smaller towns and cities historic Acre is an easy and popular sidetrip northeast of Budapest. It's been attracting travelers from Eastern Europe. As a place to catch your breath surrounded by the opulent architecture of Hungary to introduce us to the scene. And we're joined by Hungarian tour guides. Monica Poche and George. Farkas thank you. Did I get that right in Budapest? If you're looking for a little break you head up to egger very much. So yes how far away is it and what it would take about. Maybe an hour and ten minutes done in a highway and then on the secondary roads. And then you find yourself in gear Third Drain Connection. There is yes you will have to switch. That's one of the reasons why is not as cosmopolitan as it should be? Because when the train tracks were planned they didn't make a direct connection initially so That's a little bit of a of a downside of it but there's a great bus connection as well so Monica when you were growing up in Budapest. Did your family ever go to Edgar together? Yes actually not just with our family but I remember that During school trips during the communist era we were taken to Edgar Edgar was the seat of the archbishop pre so it has fantastic beautiful churches by the way would like to tell you during the communist era because of the nine hundred fifty six revolution aft-r in Hungary all of the churches are considered to be museums. Saw it ever also well capped? That's even during the communists. They are as squid children. We were taken to the Churches Museums. But not as living places of worship. The church survived physically. But it's a historic place Museum rather than a place of worship joining a community standard harmonised. Okay well it was very much controlled control. Why let's just turn around a little bit and say why Edgar would be the number one destination for Hungarians visit because it's part of the curriculum because that's where biggest victory happened. Hi this is Turkey Turkish time because they talk about. That was the last place to be taken in by the Turks of they go all the way thirteen. Nine thousand Turks are coming over and two thousand Gillian's actually locked themselves up. In the castle women children as early and they go and defeat the Turks. So that's the victory talk about. That's why all children are taken and they are taught. We don't talk about the fact that the send away the defeated Turks. A couple of months later turned around and came back into the town. But that's something we talk about. Obviously that's that's not really something won your battle fifteen fifty two so nearly five hundred years ago. The castle is still there and you can visit the Castle Castle. You even as a tourist. You get a sense. This is really important to the Hungarian much so very much. And my memory of Egor is a minaret and it must be the most northern minaret from the Ottoman Empire sticking up right there in the middle of this city yet. It's like a spaceship. There cannot send has no contracts they just sitting there is under go in a major restoration and so rather interesting Just recently they Reinstated the culpa. Praia a month later. They put it on their huge reconstruction was built for the the man who sings the calder calling. For prayer he actually climb up. The spirit is what about two hundred steps all the way to the top right and then he would get that acoustical benefit of being a top of everybody and to this day while they might not climb up there five times a day. Tourist can climb up there. Yes it's a tight little climb. Yes but it's a good view from there and also the reason it's important to mention because although Hungary was under the Turkish Ottoman invasion in a fifteenth century. They majorly converted existing buildings into minarets or they converted the Roman Catholic churches into mosques. They didn't be too many things. They've built these mirrors that we have. I think maybe two or three in our whole country for the minaret would just decorate a pre existing building that became a mosque. Is that what you're only by? They will buy. It's very rare to see anything from the Fifteenth Century Turkish Ottoman era. But that minaret is one of a kind of it. Gary Tour Guides. George Farkas said Monica Poche telling US why the town of Edgar Northern Hungary is one of the country's most popular getaways right now on travel with Rick. Steves something I remember from Edgar is. The market is just a wonderful market. George can you take us on a little walk? If you have some American friends with you and you want to introduce the culture. What would you find in the market at Egger? That gives us an insight into the salt of their Hungarian cuisine. And it's a great experience. Actually it's a a living market and you still see the ones that actually just went out in the morning and they went to see what's there to sell and they come onto their tunnel is stalls and then they sell day or individual small quantity backyard. I remember that it's like my little card table. And there's a hardscrabble old farmer husband and wife and they've got their turnips potatoes and they kind of looked like their produce very much so yeah so you can get that type of thing and then and then you continue on and then you start to see. The beautifully presented larger stalls with Grapes and Peaches and plums and veggies. And all that beautiful presented. The key is to have that relationship with the vendor. So you go and blink and then they know that they know us so you get the nice stuff From the front. I'm you know to really presentable one. And you're not regular year. You have to be aware you might not get what you see. Are you likely to find some of this famous Hungary and Moonshine for sale very much so Pelinka Pelinka because that's fundamentally something It's like GRAPPA? It's very legal. I would say it starts from eighty proof upwards and its shots That's how in the old days those that work out in the field started. They with just to get some energy my hunches. There's these flat little flasks. That people have definitely I I do have one with me. At that moment Hungarians would never leave the country without a Lilla flat flesh of Polanco. We also call it medicine if you have a heartache if you have a little bit of stomach problem because you're abrode no you are not taking. Bapti obese more something as but you immediately get delillo. Hungarian piling cars sanitizer society. Strong believe it or not but there are still destination centers in the country when you have some fruit trees in Hungary. Let's say plum or apricot or whatever you can take your own fruit to these destinations centers. You know it's bio and then Not filled with chemicals and then they make it for you. This bio moonshine exactly. There's actually a reconsidered approach today because In the old days when you went to house of Hungarian Oh you start to the dinner at the venue they will offer you pulling her and now modern culinary understanding. Is that if you offer Pelinka before the meal. You should be assured that the meal is not going to be good because what they say that if you have your Pelinka sort of so strong it kills your taste at your ability to ten. Then you don't taste the food so now pulling Kush should actually be digested. I suppose to Pera tiff. So if you are a host and you respect what you've cooked you want people to appreciate it you're not gonNA hide it by giving then you offered as before
Predicting the Decade and Distributing Conferences
"You are listening to talk machines. I'm Katherine Gorman Neal Learns and I know it's a little bit belated Neil but happy new year. Happy new decade if you believe decades does come from complexity about zero counting depending on. Whether you're a Fortran or C I. I don't know how do you and happy do you decorate. Yeah absolutely and try to see whichever exactly but you know however you counted. It's a nice. It's a nice artificially artificially imposed time to think about what this last unit of time has meant and what is next unit of time might hold so I would love to do the traditional navel-gazing commute period of time kickoff that journalists love to do which is thinking about what we might see in this next unit of time in this next decade. And you know Oh is informed by what we've seen in this last decade. I think that we've seen this kind of reflection right. Now is so important because I think we have seen humongous change not only early in the the research and what has been technically accomplished but the way that the practitioner community works and the implications of that four four things going forward. So what do you think. Neil if you had to choose one sort of hallmark of what you think signals what we can see in the future around how work gets done. I think there's lots of lots of crystal ball gazing about. What kind of work is going to get done? And that's very exciting. I Yeah I think the how that work is going to get done and how we talk about how that work gets done is going to have a huge impact on what problems picked up in solved so it is appropriate that we choose an arbitrary number based on number fingers we have only Chand for period of reflection it makes the universe make sense with tens right. Yeah Yeah I B as being an amazing decade in terms of adoption machine learning techniques. That's absolutely clear and I guess if I look back to twenty ten I don't think I would have full cost tool that. We would be where we are now a common who who says that the things happen slower than you expect in a period of years but a period of decades same false and that seems to play. He's he's something that I I was reading over the holidays. which is the printing press was being developed? The fourteen forty S in mind in Germany by Gutenberg and I think the prince his first Bible in fourteen fifty five by fifteen twenty Martin. Luther is banging things on church. Dole's saying saying he doesn't like the pope anymore and you've got a sensitive the beginning of the reformation of the church which I find extremely interesting vesting when you compare nineteen forties when people building computers in various parts in the world And I it it'll technology to two twenty twenty. It's the same seventy eight year period and first of all it makes me think. Wow actually things happen. Pretty fast with the printing impress and wild things in some sense happen pretty slowly with computers but one of the things that happened with I think the printing press some Some point was initially. It was a tool that was used by churches to print indulgence season. Bibles and things like that. And then it was used for descent and I guess one of the things we can we seen in communication is the increase in social media and it being used in that so really radically changing the way we're having conversations not necessarily all to the good. I think probably would say the same thing about the printing press but but it takes a while to assimilate how to to do these things I think. For example. You can see changes in the way. We're doing politics and that I think he's not he's not I don't I think when people are becoming popular major politicians are becoming popular on social media platforms. I don't think it's because they are sort of spend golly geniuses that know how to conduct population reputation. I just think that there's a coincidence between that politicians personality and way of communicating and things that well on these platforms and that's that's kind of interesting and I think Yet so there's some of that going on and I think we have hope we're going to get. We need to be able to use these tools to do better communication in science as well which I think is really interesting challenge. Yeah and I think that we've we've started to see that right. I don't I I don't know when I mean you know this. I don't know when archive opened up but like I certainly became aware of it And its impact within the last decade decade and then. I think that we've seen so so that to me. Sort of took the the model of or at least the timeline of publication location of academic papers especially for this community which seems to rely so heavily on archive to communicate this information that changed radically but also the journal structure in machine. Learning at least has never been what a traditional journal structure would be like. It's sort of relied at least from my point of view relied more heavily on the main the main flagship conferences. But but now even those main flagship conferences were seeing things like people putting their posters online heavy use of QR codes in posters to like communicate back to the paper. And then also this idea that I think naps is taken up That seemed to be growing in popularity. We saw the meet UPS last year. The idea around decentralisation allegation of these larger points and I think that that Willie roles in neatly and nicely to your idea around like the printing press was a tool for four the well-established to communicate. And then it became as the idea as the technology became democratized became used to express a wider variety including dissenting opinions. And so I wonder if as we see not only the communication but the community the practitioner community become decentralized and reach a wider population and include a larger number of voices if we're knocking to see a larger variety of research questions getting chosen particularly with response to the on the ground questions that people are facing geographically being wider. I don't know does that make sense. What do you think the so many things going on? I guess when people look back at this period you suspect then they they might just say Oh and then all hell broke loose a hun- because actually there's something else that went on win. The printing press was developed at a similar time. The Ottomans Monds I think the second sacked Constantinople and that actually cools A large number of written works to leave Constantinople things. Things have not been known in say Western. You're sorry very European perspective and that sort of gave material for the printing press to welcome and one of the things things that's going on when you talk about ideas and dissemination of ideas. He's also the ideas that came out so people then started re translating the Bible. But in this case it's very complex because when you mentioned archive I see that as an old combination of the old and the new. Because this genuinely if I speak to most people that finding sort of clarification blog posts all software perhaps the most useful thing and driving through their ideas but when it comes to their citations they will cite archive papers but not those blog posts all very often not the software despite the archive papers. It's not having gone through a sort of a more formal peer review process. I think Perot Tom Dietrich how to sort of check many of them to make sure they're on subject great service to the community see but they haven't gone through a sort of formal pair of you yet. Somehow they had artifact which is more tracing back to the the notion of what a written piece of work is and how it should appear as a paper which in some sense is also relatively modern notion. Only two hundred years old. But it's so important important an interesting the what you write this disruption. Going on there's also massive conservatism. In the way we expect to do things it's not like let's revisit everything we think about scientific if it communication and conferences and everything else because in some sense I would say. Many of conferences have become undermined by the status. We place on on getting a paper in that conference. Venue for conferring they have become a status symbol for getting your tenure or students are in a very difficult position because I think they feel. PhD students that they feel that unless they have a few Europe's papers papers or you IRA. I starts papers the they I see la so now now you have to start worrying. Which conferences have I missed an GonNa Win Fund and other really good conferences that I forgot to mention they feel the the pressure to produce these papers because they feel that probably the only mark of success that came up with the new? NFL meeting. which which I thought was a great innovation this Europe so there was a meeting for people that machine learning once? You're on the stand about the community a lot of questions around this and I think that there's a way what I'm slightly worried about. Is The misalignment between those contributing to understanding and those being credited for that contribution it almost seems like back. Once you've got this idea that someone's explained clearly in a blog post you. The archetype is to cite this paper that you've never really read. Don't really understand now now. Of course the idea maybe in that paper and so forth but it's really sucked too sophisticated ecosystem communication now and I think that that's opening up challenges which you see reflected in people talk about
Human Rights, Hate Speech And The First Amendment
"Happen okay so Richard singles as since World War two many nations have passed laws to curb the incitement of racial and religious hatred by the way have been successful new no they have not anti semitism in Europe is it back at near all time highs it really is terrible so those those laws no word seeking to curb hate speech and hate crimes I am been wildly successful which is why Jews are moving by the bundle over Israel well I started out as protections against the kind of anti semitic bigotry to give rise to the Holocaust we call them hate speech laws says Richard Stengel but there's no agreed upon definition of what hate speech actually is in general hate speech is speech that attacks insults people on the basis of race religion ethnic origin and sexual orientation I think it's time to consider the statutes he says that domestic terrorists were consumers of hate speech okay well you just said you can't define it but if somebody bad consumes it that means it's hate speech again I I ask willing to broadband Bernie Sanders on healthcare willing to do that this is speech doesn't pull the trigger but does anyone seriously doubt that hateful speech creates a climate where such acts are more likely no we all agree with that that's why we should use social mechanism to push people to be more civil overall but banning things via the government because a bad person could do bad things thinking bad things like good luck with that he says let the debate begin hate speech has a less violent but nearly as damaging impact in another way it diminishes tolerance it enables discrimination not noticed all these words are defined by Richard Stengel so corny to Richard single it's discrimination if I say the man is a man or woman is one presumably they'll be hate speech and should be banned by the government he says it isn't that by definition speech that undermines the value of the first amendment right what is a speech that he says isn't that by definition speech that undermines the values the first man that was designed to protect fairness and due process equality before the law but look what he's doing here he's saying there's some other values that are not first amendment values but the first member could undermine them so we need to get rid the first amendment the first man it was designed to protect fairness by saying we're allowed to speak and your process by saying that the government can't take away your stuff based on something you just say equality before the law what the law is equal in that we can all say stop and he's saying well free speech undermines those things and she just get rid of hate speech why shouldn't the state's experiment with their own version of hate speech statutes to penalize speech but deliberately insults people based on religion race ethnicity and sexual orientation well because the government shouldn't be in the business of determining your intense based on what you have to say about politics and the world that's why his worst where truth cannot drive allies must add new guard rails I like to see that standard okay cannot drive LS we're can't treat drive allies where can't it Dr allies where hasn't it where is it impossible for truth to drive out lies in all for protecting thought that we hate but not speech that insight Tate in other words he's not for protecting thought that he hates because all thought to be a good insight hate really awful stuff but this is this is the world that the left would like to see it's funny because the left is a divided mind about this Barack Obama actually was speaking to young people the other day and he and he actually ripped on them I'm cancel culture saying that all of this was over rocks this idea of purity and you're never compromised and you're always politically bulk and all that stuff that you should get over that quickly world the world is messy and there ambiguities like if I Twitter hashtag about how you didn't do something right or use the word wrong verb or then I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself because men you see how what I was I called you out that's not that's not activism that's not bring about change you know is very different from the modern Democratic Party by the way I think Barack Obama really believes that you down I have my doubts I have my doubts okay meanwhile in a piece of breaking news I just wanna point out the wild hypocrisy of the left when it comes to human rights remember that time ahead I'm I was supposed to be the human rights crusader right you want to boycott Israel very important boycott Israel well now she said she doesn't know what kind of running shoes on like a Turkey and on Tuesday she refused to back a resolution recognizing the slaughter of Armenians by Ottoman Turks during World War one is genocide she instead voted present she's a real hero for human rights she has really really worried that human rights violations unless they're human rights violations that take place in the house of an Islamic dictatorship whose policies she's largely backs she has a truly knowledge means of historical crimes against humanity must include both the heinous genocide in the twentieth century along with earlier mass slaughters like trans Atlantic slave trade and aid of American genocide so in other words she wants to do with a resolution condemning the Armenian genocide exactly what the Democratic Party did with her anti semitism by where they were like well sure she's an anti semite but let's just condemn all hate she's like I can't condemn the Armenian genocide only I need to also condemn America thank you cannot that is what about isn't of the highest order astonishing what about him in addition represented Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas and Paul

"Gene, Rogan's new book is the fall of the Ottoman. Meet. She is overwhelmed by the Russian and the French and the British throughout the first years of the war, and they hold fast to the German empire. And dig in over the scenes that are heartbreaking in Eugene's book have nothing to do with the great powers have to do with the village level. When I quote, Eugene say if one of the correspondence saying that the news of war came like, a thunderbolt Eugene what I sense from your reading of the diaries and the letters in the Ottoman empire is that they were not prepared for this and people would show up with the Ottoman empire flag, or they there would be someone calling out that they were to March. The watcher of the town would say, you're recruited and you go off to war, but it didn't fool the mothers. They all knew they had a sense of foreboding that this would come out badly. And it's as if the whole empire realized that these were the last. Days is that is that a fair reading of the diaries? They were not optimistic at I definitely John. And I think for the citizens of the Ottoman empire. Nineteen fourteen came as this sort of combination of their nightmares because it was war weary empire that you've already mentioned the since the young Turk revolution in nineteen thousand eight the automated already fought three wars, they fought against Italy over Libya in nineteen eleven and lost before it against a coalition of Balkan states in the first Baltimore nineteen twelve and lost. And then they got drawn into the third Balkan war. Second Balkan war. The third conflict. The arguments had to fight in nineteen thirteen in which they manage to score. No small victory in recovering some lost territory, including the city of Deir which it falls under the first Balkan war. But the country's economy was shattered. Its military had been completely depleted of arms and munitions and the economy the soldiers, the, you know, the the military nothing was ready to go to war again. And such a such a massive were evolving, all the great powers of Europe. I think they sense of dread that accompanied the coal to to the draft was still right across the empire by Kurds Turks, Arabs, Armenians Greeks, everyone who lived is in Auburn citizen and being called to serve underarms rewarding. You that the the empire stood very little chance of quitting. Gene is good to touch upon the British. The French calling on their empires. Their Moslems, the French call on the north African Berbers who dress as these as the men with large pantaloons who go off to war to die in Belgium, unappreciated at the time just a detail about Egypt. This is when the British empire, which has been a protectorate of the Jeff Sessions the KC since the late nineteenth century eighteen eighty two. They just take it over don't they, gene? They don't they don't they don't pretend it's legal. They an exit. He had very little choice job, and they looked at Egypt as an automobile territory in Egypt. Still in nineteen fourteen was formerly part of the Ottoman empire. For the moment, the Ottoman entered the war Britain's position would be either as a hostile power in Ottoman territory or else they had to separate Egypt from the Ottoman grip to to legitimate their presence there. It's one of those funny technicalities of war where the rules of war and the rules of empire came into conflict with each other. And the solution the British came up with and it was an awkward solution was to declare unilaterally Egypt independent of the Ottoman empire. Then that meant how would Egypt rule itself? How would you designate the the leader of this country and suddenly overnight became sultanas and that way trying to make Egypt on equal standing with the Ottoman empire. Big Muslim states ruled by sultan's, but this soul to that. Of course, was an ally of Britain, an ally Britain promised would not be called on to play an active role in the war big mistake. Because of course, Britain had debate that promised several times not just drawing on each material support for the war. But did you mentioned served actively in our two records? They served Arabia in jazz, and they served in labor gangs. Whatever. The sort of allied war effort took them from Gallipoli to Salonika quite to the western front now pieces of the empire to be attacked by the British and the Russians we'll start with the Russians in the Caucasus. Because at this point Anatolia was the easternmost part of the Ottoman empire. But it reached up into the caucuses and there's a river there called the our river. And that's where the first battle between this November between Russia and the undermanned third army, and what I take from your from the diaries here is that the Russians overwhelmed them, and they were very much thrown back. Did anybody get blamed for those losses? Eugene Julio opening conflicts between the Russians and the Turks. I think that the Russians had clear orders to try and create a buffer zone between their frontier an audit enforces. And so the occupying a stretch of of land the length of the Caucasus frontier about ten fifteen miles deep and the Ottomans had no way of holding the Russians back at this. Point they weren't prepared for war and that eastern front, and they were ruled back effectively by the Russians, but the general in command of the Russian seemed to get ahead of himself, and perhaps felt that he could achieve greater glory by pushing deeper into Auburn territory, and has was to prove the case with other ambitious generals over extending your troops. And making for volatile supply lines often resulted in embarrassing defeats. And so he got overextended and the Ottomans when they finally reached a point of high concentration we're able to roll the Russians back and the Russians were forced to go back to the lines at the buffer zone date. I hope to create around Korean in this eastern Caucasus region and in so doing I think said ambitions at work among the audience that if they could actually contain in Russian thrust drive them back perhaps because applies the Russians and try and make an launch a campaign into Russian territory to achieve a great victory. The British declared war on the. Ottomans November fifth nineteen fourteen and at this point Britain lounges secret plans lot using the army in India to attack both Bosra that's at the head of the Gulf. This is the same territory and the Persian Gulf that we're fighting over and worrying about today, the oil fields that were at that time attached to pipeline and refinery in what is now Iran Persia, but that was the British oil companies controlling that they needed it for their Oilers. What the first of the dreadnought fleet that didn't use coal at used oil. So the British attack very effectively against Bosra, and they create the state of Kuwait there in correspondence, the Arab tribes. Have they shown which way they're going to go here early in the war Eugene be Arabs knew they had no fight in the European conflict. But he could see that the way the conflict would play out would definitely influence the balance of power in Europe. And so they're not for instinct was to sit on the fence. See who would prevail try to keep their options open and ensure that however the war went to the Europeans the results would be to their advantage. And no one played the game better than the founder of the modern kingdom of Saudi Arabia who was being pressed by the Ottomans to support their warford by the British to preserve a benign neutrality towards the allies as part of the kind of British late that the British empire created out of the Persian Gulf. And in the end, it was to no one except his own people and manage to conclude an agreement with the British that gave him a monthly stipend managed to persuade the Ottomans of his non hostility and used every resource that came his way from for the British to continue his conquests that Arabia targeting particular, his old rival the Rashidi clad in Ohio. So the are basically, you know, not to be caught up in Europe's conflicts slightly and look for. Every opportunity to advance their own interests, the Gulf of Aden, which is now under active patrol here at the opening the bomb all Mandevu the opening of the Red Sea at this time was a concern for the British as well, they used my note says sixty nine th Punjabis they use the Indian army to secure the Aden protectorate, and they had to deal with forts that could fire it's a pretty wide area. I believe it's not narrow like the Dardanelles. But I took a made a note here Eugene that they targeted the Shiite Zedi which of the exact same forces. That are now participating in the civil war of Yemen. It's one hundred years later, and nothing has changed about the the switching of sides in Yemen. Well, nothing has changed in westerners misreading of the politics of Yemen and mistaking friends, and foes and taking actions that could could the end prove more harmful to western interests. And they. Anticipate that was certainly the case when the British decided despite Turkish gums at the entrance to the boundaries Monday streets into the Red Sea. They were operating under the assumption that by extending artillery, then to reinforce a fortress. They held near the the straits that they could stop the Turks from threatening the movement of British shipping into the Red Sea up to Suez canal into the Mediterranean world of very important water communication line for the British empire to contribute to the war effort of the western front, but. In the end what they did by attacking an automatic position in in south Yemen was to take neutral powers like the. Yeah. Is eighty ruler to refer and make him side with the autumn is because he saw the British encroaching on his territory without permission undertaking all-star lax, and so he is lauded with the Ottomans instead and was later to be devil. The British in the Aden carbonate by laying siege to the colony and enforcing the British back into a desperate situation where they suddenly had to take much needed troops from to reinforce their position in Aden to keep sort of Ottoman Arab coalition from overwhelming the besieged town. So yes, another example of a kind of imperial overstretch and westerners misreading the politics of the Arab world a note here because we're a catastrophe of Gallipoli, the ANZAC the Australian and New Zealand contingents, leave Australia, and they are parked in Egypt, and they parade into the heart of a Cairo to impress everyone. I note that they park. Them there because they didn't quite know what they're gonna do with them. Eventually they're going to send them to Gallipoli. But from my reading of what you're reporting here, gene. It looks like the imperial troops destabilized, Egypt that the Egyptians regretted siding with the British is that correct? The British team even before war broke out in nineteen fourteen that they were dealing with a growing nationalist movement in Egypt and a growing dissatisfaction with British occupation that had been in place since eighteen eighty two so one of the territory's, I think Britain was most concerned about after the Ottoman Soltan declared you had with Egypt would the Sunni Muslims of Egypt make common cause with the Ottoman Turks and rise up against. The British as occupiers of Egypt. So one spruce strategic imperative win the deployment of the Australia. New Zealand troops was not just take advantage of a stopover in Egypt to give them basic training for military service. But also to have a large mass of troops and the British dominions who could really impress the people of Tyrone Alexandria of the strength of the British position. So that hotheaded nationalist wouldn't fi on a kind of revolt or applying against the British at the instigation of the ultimate. And so they really do deployed the ANZAC troops in a deliberate way making the March right through the heart of Cairo press on the natives just how big the military presence one hundred years later, the same anxiety same heart of Cairo the fall of the Ottoman suppressant book, but it's a history of the great war in the middle. Least Eugene Rogan is the author when we come.

What was Commodore Prebble and the constitution and Stephen Decatur that was about the challenge to parts of the Ottoman empire that time at Tripoli or along the north African post coast, but that is part of the reach of the Sultan in Constantinople at the end of the first war that autumn and empire long history of contact with American with America's navy. I mentioned the shores of Tripoli, but I learned from a wonderful new sweeping book about a small piece of Constantinople where the US navy was a critical observer of the chaos of the end of the Ottoman empire. America's Black Sea fleet by Robert shank that Commodore David porter called on the sublime part in Constantinople in the eighteen thirties. And in the eighteen sixties David Farragut was there in the eighteen ninety s Americans observed the contest between the. The Armenians Christians and the Ottoman empire. Some pointing to the massacres that continued into the twentieth century and the American ambassador Henry Morgan thought to Turkey during the first war left eye book, which he he was their thirteen to sixteen in which five chapters are devoted to his observations of the sufferings of the Armenians throughout the Ottoman empire. What we now call Turkey. However, I begin this story with the author by asking about why it is that the US navy following the end of the first war following the verse I treaty following the break-up of the Ottoman empire. Why the US navy dispatched destroyers and navy personnel to Constantinople why because we had not been at war with Turkey. So what are we doing there? Robert, Bob, a very good evening to you. Thank you very much. Your book is extremely carefully written and very politically astute for this period after. The first war. Why did the navy go there? What was the reason given to dispatch although all those sailors good evening to you. Good evening. Good to talk to you. Listen, we we were sending ships to support American interests and Americans who might have been endanger in a deeply in in Anatolia or Asia. Minor the continental Turkey is we call it today. And also because America have been so gripped by what was called has become called the army Nghien genocide the terrible stories of what had happened to the Armenians during the nineteen fifteen nineteen sixteen as reported on by ambassador Morton thought and others. And so they America started the near east relief campaign to help all the survivors of the genocide in deeply in in Armenia, and in many other places of of continental the Turkey and also, of course, Americans had some business interests. Overseas in in the region. And then, of course, missionaries had been in in Turkey from the congregational church before something like almost one hundred years. The US navy has dispatched though, we're not at war with Turkey. And we're not really sharing the spoils of the division of the of the Ottoman empire. The French and the British are extremely prominent we sail into Constantinople, and you paint the picture vividly. This is nineteen twenty twenty one that the remains of Gallipoli and the and the first war are everywhere with wreck ships with possible minds floating around with evidence of pirate havens on the on the shoreline. So this is not a restored Constantinople. Does the navy regarded as a good posting or is this a punishment posting what's the opinion of the sailors large? It depends not they're not always the same. But it was of course, a very romantic very, very. Fabled place. There were a great monuments on the headgear Sophia and many many great mosques on Sunday skyline. There were stories of of historic stories reaching back to Alexander, the great and the and before that the the with the Bosphorus strait and gone into Greece. And so all of that. And then as things that came around. All that. More and more of what the the the shitty was like began coming back story speaking come coming back to the states. And so it was a very very attractive thing for many, sailors. We need to meet the commander of the American flotilla the American ships. His name is Admiral Bristol, and you describe him. He's fifty years old his wife is Helen he described him as as a combination of amiable and stubborn was he regarded as a good commander by the the men in the in the destroyers cruisers. They were they were pretty much point. He was a very strong commander. And so they were on his side by large course, they knew nothing of the circumstances. They were going into and he more and more dominated their points of view. He was an old football player from the Napa since he was awfully awfully awfully genial. But you could assume an aggressive scowl what he wanted to an all did. Yes. You you. You have a wonderful photograph in your book of the Admiral scowling, I I guess he wasn't friendly to cameras, and he was a power that is not on. We don't have anything comparable today.

He was more powerful than the ambassador and his word was law for not only the navy, but reporting back to Washington, it was that the nature of the navy in those days if you were an Admiral on scene you were God. Well, he was the in fact today facto ambassador, the other solos there were much sport it to impose this wheel up on them. Then they would have been America had not had since the war, although they didn't declare war on Turkey. But he was on scene. And so, and he talked to everybody there and learned everything, and so he was able to tell Washington his point of view and his point of view on more or less dominated in Washington is what was going on there. He was very knowledgeable. I am. Destroyers went throughout the black CHEN and so on and so he was very knowledgeable and all all that he came across right? They made regular calls. And so they were there was no internet. There were no satellites that were no airplanes following in this area. So a navy destroyer making calls in the Black Sea in the GM. That was fresh information. One other information to the Admiral. Yes, one in and then he cables Washington. One other major significant figure is Kamal Mustafa who is he in nineteen nineteen nineteen twenty when the Admiral arise. Well, he writes in nineteen nineteen and canal is the is not long after he gets there canal is set into by the allies into into conduct from Constantinople to continental Turkey to help solve some things the allies wanted to, but he had a different idea. And he starts a revolution. He begins to get people around him. And he begins in the far east of Turkey to to get all the Turks instead of the the Ottoman empire. The old Ottoman empire is falling and begins more and more to subsume all the governmental functions in deep continental Turkey. And he's a challenge to the Sultan. Does bristol. Bristol does Admiral Bristol have an opinion Bristol becomes very positive. Very favorable towards him. If he sees Canales the turkeys, George Washington very early on. He gets this opinion also realizes how powerful he is likely to be and Americans have been there American commissions have visited and the show him one of the generals who American general took exploratory journal says of back and who met the canal says this is no cheap political adventurer. He really does want to make of Turkey a nation in the in the I guess you'd have to say in the place of the old crumbling Ottoman empire. The book is America's Black Sea fleet. Robert shank, the US navy amidst war and revolution nineteen thousand nine hundred nineteen Twenty-three you can you you see the Turkish revolution.

"You have to recognize that Islam by its nature is fundamentally incompatible with traditional western notion of how to live. What stood out to you about this interview? Todd, that's good stuff air the benefit of hindsight. We look back at history and that's one of the great things history is supposed to be able to do. It's supposed to be able to help us not to make the same stakes twice. So we we, we can see we can connect the dots. Why did the revolutionary war alternately happen? We can see what led up to the civil war World War Two. When I asked Robert Spencer about you know, how far away are we realistically from caliphate he didn't put a time on it, but he said a fundamental aspect of what it would take for the Calvin to happen is happening right now that fall of Europe that is pretty chilling. Does it take? Does that take the rest of our lifetime? Does it happen? And after we're gone, Steve, is it perhaps happening much much sooner than that? He doesn't know, but one way or the other, he says, it is happening as we speak. That is. Remarkable to behold because there's no buffer. I mean, the history of Islam tilts towards the caliph it and at times rival are warring Calif. It's like what happened after Muhammad's death? For example, this where we get the the traditions of Sooners and she is from is which of these caliphates we're going to, you know, pick up the mantle from Muhammed following his passing. So I mean the history of Islam tilts towards the caliph it with the Ottoman empire being the most obvious example. So why haven't we seen this in our day and age because western civilization has provided the buffer towards that happening. Has made it very difficult for because the goal of a caliph it and the way you would assert yours is the caliphat to consolidate behind is you have the means and the opportunity to impose a Jimmy. If there's not had Jimmy guess would you don't have a caliph it right? So Dida Jimmy to have a caliphate or Calvin half gem? Yes. All right. So if you're a bit player on the world stage, you can go out into the street and scream caliphate Calvin caliphate caliphate all you want. You're not rallying people to your. This is what ISIS tried to do this. This is what ISIS was trying to do. They were trying to wreak so much havoc essentially, conquer Iraq and Syria with the point of saying, we've defeated the west Iraq is a proxy state of the United States, the great Satan. We've, we've, we've deposed Assad who the west, who the west is at times called vile and necessary depending on which leader and which era we got rid of Assad. We got rid of the we. We have taken over the US proxy state of Iraq. We're the caliphat. We're the winners jump on our bandwagon. That's the sensually the history of his law. Well, if you have a powerful western buffer. Very difficult for consolidation around a caliphat because they can't acquire a Gemini. But if the west is going to unilaterally disarm in front of radical Islam. And multicultural themselves out of civilization. This is what Roberts talking about, right? Jimmy suddenly becomes possible. Right? Yeah, there's there's nobody to stop them. And again, he didn't wanna be grandiose and putting in a number on it. But his clear implication was that it could be much much sooner than anybody thinks.
