THE NEW SILK ROAD, GLOBAL DYNAMICS & ENERGY

Arms trade statistics, nationalist tendencies, implicit US – UK conflicts, cracks in the unity of EU, independence discourses in some European countries, military spurts in South China Sea, Northern Korea’s nuclear threatening, worsening chaos in the Middle East, increasing tension in the Arab world in the hands of Saudi’s, Iran and Russia’s positions and new embargos give important clues about the warming and warning situation of the global dynamics. While the global unrest and the uncertainty levels are increasing, China declared the updated version of the old & traditional project Silk Road with a new title: One Belt One Road (OBOR). In addition to the traditional background and the commercial sights, the new proposed project has much more targets related with the world dynamics. OBOR, with the implicit supports of UK & some finance barons, more than being a solution for Chinese overcapacity problem, seems as a proposal of a new world order. Expectations and future estimations cannot draw a clear frame for the long term struggle and trends, however, OBOR has to be studied also from these sights. In this study, by defining the general trends in the global dynamics, OBOR’s extended vision and US – China rivalry will tried to be evaluated. After these analysis, the sight of energy politics and the Turkey’s situation in this equation will also be commentated.
