La estrategia de Turquía para Irán

ESTAMBUL – Luego de la reciente visita del ministro de Relaciones Exteriores iraní, Javad Zarif, a los estados del Golfo, todo está dado para que la ofensiva amistosa de la República Islámica continúe con el viaje del presidente Hassan Rouhani a Turquía a comienzos del mes próximo. A diferencia de la mayoría de los vecinos árabes de Irán, Turquía inequívocamente recibió con beneplácito el acuerdo nuclear interino sellado el mes pasado entre Irán y el P5+1 (los cinco miembros permanentes del Consejo de Seguridad de las Naciones Unidas y Alemania). Pero los estrategas políticos turcos son profundamente conscientes de que el acuerdo puede trabucar el frágil equilibrio de poder de Oriente Medio.

Desde la perspectiva de Turquía, están dadas las condiciones para que el acuerdo nuclear, si se implementa exitosamente y se torna permanente después de seis meses, elimine una preocupación de seguridad importante. El gobierno del primer ministro Recep Tayyip Erdoğan no quiere enfrentarse a un Irán nuclear, por temor al surgimiento de una relación asimétrica de poder con la República Islámica después de siglos de lazos equilibrados. 

Sin embargo, Turquía no aprobó una intervención militar en Irán, liderada por Estados Unidos. Se creía que un ataque militar crearía aún más problemas en términos de estabilidad y seguridad regional. Esa es la razón por la que los estrategas políticos turcos persistieron en defender una solución diplomática para el enigma iraní, que es lo que consiguieron con el último acuerdo.

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
