One thing is clear and obvious: Turkey officially is the successor of the Ottoman Empire. Ottoman was monarchy, now the state is a republic. Turkey is officially the successor of the Ottomans agreed by the international response. This means that after her declaration of republic, Turkey has paid all the international depth that the Ottoman dynasty has owed to all around. From 1923 to 1950’ies Turkey kept paying. This is a proof of Ottoman Empire to be the predecessor of the Republic of Turkey.
The history of civilization had outstanding times of might and peace. Those times (or ages some might say) have been named PAX. The civilization had rare states to take the responsibility of the globe and distribute security, health, education and justice among mass geography for centuries. Until now, the world had witnessed 4 different PAX. These are:
Pax Romana (Roman Empire)
Pax Ottomana (Ottoman Empire)
Pax Britannica (British Empire)
Pax Americana (United States of America)
The Republic of Turkey, in terms of security is in must to endure a decisive military strength. That’s because many of the upstanding Turkish families have/had estimates at Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Arabia and more. This is not a joke. Many families migrated to Anatolia from those places during the nationalist uprise among the globe. These families have land registers of Ottoman Empire. But there’s no Ottoman Empire over those lands anymore. So, who owns the land now? This might sound like a joke, but this is actually a very complicating question. This fact makes it for the successor Turkey to support an outstanding army and navy.
The Republic of Turkey stands in between Europe and Iran. One has to think about this. What do you think Iran would do if she was bordering with Greece and Bulgaria? You got it; Iran would invade without hesitate. That means war. That means loss of lives. Turkey also absorbs so much of the European targeted migration from Arabia, India, Caucasia and Central Asia.
Back to the beginning: let’s just not forget that the Republic of Turkey has paid for the Ottoman depth. Italy did not pay the depth of the Roman Empire after it collapsed. But Turkey did.
Also arts&sciences are crucial for a culture to set a pax. Therefore the architectural land marks are also very important.
It can be said that the Pax Ottomana was the inverted version of the Pax Romana. Romans used all their state funds for to finance the glamourity of the capitals: Rome/Constantinople. Ottomans used a different style. The Turks have built mosques, universities, hamams, bridges etc. all around the Empire. Many of the Ottoman works of construction had been destroyed during the Balkan War and World War I and II. Some countries having independency earned from Ottoman Empire, purposely erased the Ottoman Turkish structures.
Also; looking only on Istanbul from outerspace one might think of this: “The authority which rules at this spot -Istanbul- should have borders of this wide.” pointing Gibraltar and the Alps, Red Sea, Blacksea, Caucasia, Balkans, Anatolia and Mesopotamia. Because this the geographical aura of Istanbul. You can see it just by looking at her from above. Let’s not forget that Napoleon had declared that Istanbul would do a well capital for the World.
As a Turk, one must admit that the Republic of Turkey is spending a lot on armament, but let’s just not forget that the founder of the state of the Republic of Turkey, Atatürk, has set 3 main agendas for the new governance: 1-Security, 2-Industry, 3-Forestry …
It's sord of shocking to see forestry at the top 3 agendas of the new regime. But Atatürk truly believed that the Turks should be planting forests among Anatolia. “The homeland shall be green” he thought.
The first is security. For sure. Turkey was established while she was under invasion of England, Russia, Italy and France all together. The feeling of this should be very depressing. All the major powers of the World to unite in order to share the Ottoman territory? Do you see any light of victory against this? In today’s terms this is like USA, China, Russia and Germany attacking to another country. Would you think that that country could have any chance? Turkey has done it. But deep in the root of the shelves of memory the Turk again reunderstood the vitality of the Turkish Armed Forces. The trauma of the War of Survival always is fresh at Turkish hearth.
Looking at the World map, the central circle contains Alexandria and Istanbul. And Istanbul has a nicer climate. Also, Anatolia, being the land of emergence of the civilization itself is very out on spotlight.
Romania, Hungary, Poland, Argentina, Uruguay, Malesia and many more countries do not have to withhold a very strong army. Which is a good thing.
This explanatory is because of the sense of this site looking too militaristic.
