Friedman, who stated that in the earthquake Turkey will be the fault line of the Islamic world, said: ”IF A COUNTRY WILL MANAGE THE ISLAMIC WORLD, IT MUST DEFINATELY BE TURKEY. It is not just economic. Turkey is the only country that both provides an environment of peace and becomes a friend for America. That’s why there isn’t any precaution for USA army to take.”
George Friedman is preparing to publish his book ‘The Next 100 Years’ also in Turkey which he claims that 100 years later Turkey will be one of the four biggest superpower in the world.
