#1 He is correct in this:
"It seems that everything produced and imposed to the world by the West in the form of a global discourse and order is coming to an end.

The West has been destroyed from the interior by Marxists. Who is the Marxist center of the world today? USA and its Universities, its Media...

#2 Uhm no! EU is the Marxist center, note that the EU has already gone full blown socialist, while the USA is fighting the socialists.

#3 Turkey has grown with western technology transfer and Arab money. Both are at an end as the Turks have pissed off both. Back to being the Sick Man of Eurasia, in the near future, with a Kurdish majority. Erodogan's nightmare come true.

No that was in 60'70's. Ideological Marxist production today is in US and other Anglo-saxon countries. PC and extension of Marxist exploited/exploiters game was started/created in US not Continental Europe.

#8 I hate how people misuse the term "superpower". Turkey is a regional power at best, and barely became a great power.

We can only hope that the "world order" comes to an end. It has been an utter disaster for the American people. We have been thrown out of work and forced to fight for this meaningless concept. Our people are killed and horribly maimed for life, either physically or mentally. And for what? For the benefit of hostile countries who hate us?

What business is it of ours if the Grand Turk wants to waste blood and treasure in Syria? Who cares? Better than us doing it.

#11 "Karag├╝l described what he saw as the collapse of the West and the rise of countries, including Turkey".

Typical Mudslum propaganda.

#15 In the last election Erdogan couldn't carry Istanbul. So much for the Caliphate and Turkey's New World Order.

#16 Benito Mussolini had a high impression of himself, too, before being hung by his heels, that is.

...and Erdogan doesn't seem to be as capable as Mussolini.

#20 It has to be read from their perspective. Cheeky inanity that it is, it's also not without import for us.

Basically, they're implying that the blatant aggression and delinquent abandon that we see in display in islamic nations today gives a leg up against convention bound, legalist military superpowers. These militaries cannot use their power even after proliferating trillions worth of equipment and gigatons of death, so stuck are they in the struggle to maintain ideological consistency among themselves and in their domestic spheres.

In such a world, no one has to be a super power to take even the mighty US of A for a ride. Being a shameless islamic state with effective representation in various pressure groups on American campuses will do. So essentially, they've not attained 'super' status. It's the countries that once acted as cops of the world that have made themselves powerless.
