The Roman Empire at the time of Hadrian in AD 125.
Yellow dots are defense bases. 19 of a total of 28 defense bases are in the Ottoman Geography. When combined with the green color in the form of a line, such an image emerged.
There were large naval bases in Italy (Ravenna, Naples), Egypt (Alexandria) and France (Gesiriacum).
Which countries are the present representatives of Ancient Rome?
The Roman Empire, the longest-lasting empire in the world, has emerged three times in history. The first was founded in the city of Rome, then continued in the form of the eastern Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire, centered in Istanbul. It started with the first Roman paganism and tried to continue with Catholicism, the second Rome continued for more than 1000 years on the basis of Orthodoxy in Istanbul, and the third Rome was based in Istanbul for nearly 500 years.
Ottoman emperors also called themselves the Roman emperor Kaiser.
However, the European ideology, which is adept at distorting historical facts, reconstructed the legacy of the Roman Empire, which it had destroyed thanks to its own barbaric tribes, such as the Goths, Vandals, Lombards, Franks, Jutes and Saxons, through Catholicism. Established empires and eventually based the European Union ideology with Rome. The European Union was established with the Treaty of Rome signed on March 25, 1957.
Later, Catholic Church invaded the Orthodox Rome in Istanbul and plundered it disastrously. What develops from here is the antagonism between Catholicism and Orthodoxy.
The Turkish Empire, on the other hand, built and revived the third Rome. As a result, Europe, which was more introverted was put on the defensive, deepened the feudal selfishness against Ottoman Empire‘s understanding and philosophy of keeping religions and languages alive in accordance with the Islamic civilization and the old Roman understanding. It is impossible for a union and an empire to emerge from the feudal understanding. That is what is happening today.
In the Ottoman period, which is the third Rome, the center is the eastern Mediterranean, just like in the first and second Rome. Architectural works were always made in the eastern Mediterranean. While the Roman Law was written by Justinian in the five hundred years in Orthodox Rome, the Hagia Sophia church was also the largest domed religious structure of its time, built in Istanbul. Later, in the process that started with the Fatih Laws (Kanunname), it was brought to the top by a Sultan called Kanuni, like Justinian. It has sheltered people from all monotheistic religions, called people of the book, under its umbrella. These understandings are far from the feudal, utilitarian and selfish ideology of Europe.
The barbarian Europe of antiquity is not adorned with architectural artifacts, which were carried out in small quantities by the Roman Empire, mainly in Italy and Greece. In the west of Europe, such works can only be found sporadically. (Rome and Mediterranean)
ROME IN TURKEY
Legionnaires Bases in Turkey. All bases are around the Euphrates (Euphrates) river.
Why is there no base in Western Anatolia? Is Western Anatolia an untenable region?
Maritime understanding of Mare Nostrum. The difference between the Western and Eastern Mediterranean is very clear in the distribution of Rome’s defense bases. I loved this map.
The Mediterranean is already Rome’s inland sea. There are 7 bases located on the Eastern Mediterranean and North African coasts with the number 184.108.40.206.28.29.30 on the outer periphery of the Mediterranean.
On the Roman Empire map dated 125, there are 10 legionary bases on the Black Sea-Eastern Mediterranean line, starting from the ancient city of Satala around Trabzon and extending to Alexandria.
If we include the 10 bases along the Danube, 20 of the 30 bases in the Empire are on the Danube-Euphrates-Nile line.
While ROME connected the Danube and Euphrates lines over the Black Sea, it also clamped the Euphrates and Nile lines through the Eastern Mediterranean. And he called the Mediterranean the inland sea (Mare Internum).
There is only one base in Algeria in the western Mediterranean.
What an important strategic initiative of the Eastern Mediterranean-oriented ROME.
THE GENIUS OF ROME
Roman Empire legionnaire bases map. Year 125.
A very interesting strategic map.
The British followed the same strategy. Yes, they spread it all over the world.
Roman base in Malatya.
Yellow colors: Bases.
10 of the 30 Roman legionnaire bases are along the Danube river. When the Ottomans lost the Danube, the empire was gone.
Legionnaire Bases strategy created by the Roman Empire with the Danube and Euphrates.
On the Roman Empire map dated 125, there are 10 legionnaire bases on the Black Sea-Eastern Mediterranean line, starting from the ancient city of Satala around Trabzon and extending to Alexandria. If we add the 10 bases along the Danube, 20 of the 30 bases in the Empire are on the Danube-Euphrates-Nile line.
While Rome is connecting the Danube and Euphrates lines over the Black Sea, it also interlocked the Euphrates and Nile lines over the Eastern Mediterranean and named the Mediterranean as the inland sea (Mare Internum).
How important is the Eastern Mediterranean thesis as a strategic initiative.
Yellow boxes: Bases
The line of defense bases descending from Trabzon extends to Alexandria, Egypt. The Euphrates river is a defense point. There are also defense bases on the Danube and on the Rhine. There was only one base in Spain. There are four bases in Turkey and three in England. In North Africa, only Algeria has a base. The Egyptian base is in the eastern Mediterranean.
- Europe (including UK): 9 bases
- Black Sea-East Mediterranean line: 18 bases
- Africa: 1 base
Total: 28 bases
As a result, the Black Sea-eastern Mediterranean line is important for the Roman Empire. The number of bases in Europe is only half of the Black Sea Mediterranean line. So the heart of the empire is the Black Sea-Mediterranean line.
CONCLUSION: WHICH ROME?
For Turkey , which has a 12,000-year history of settlement and civilization, the importance of history and the past is related to the design of future horizons. When viewed from this very long period of time, the past is not a mirror of the future. What we see and will see in that mirror is the transfer of the accumulation of this 12,000-year time period to the future in the minds. In this sense, the USA and EU present themselves as representatives of Rome in the West.
However, the present representative of the Roman civilization centered on the eastern Mediterranean is Turkey, which has the longest coastline in the region.
Wisdom is also the center of Roman civilization. Rome transformed Istanbul into the world capital city and people from different religions and languages were kept together, and the latest settlement technique of the age was used. The Ottoman sultans, who were aware of this, called themselves Kaiser.
The west, which is based on the policy of divide and rule, is never wisdom-based, only interest-based, be it the USA or the EU. The Ottomans, on the other hand, named their country as Diyar-ı Rum (Roman Land), and the European lands were named as Rumelia.
Roads, bridges, baths, public buildings and the splendor of the Mediterranean are the legacy of Rome, and they have never been able to produce such a legacy, whether the western EU or the USA, which implements divide and rule policies.
The revival of the Roman Empire, which started in Italy and ended in Turkey at the beginning of the 20th century, should be on Turkey‘s agenda for the fourth time. The selfish attitude of the West in these matters is that you are doing Ottomanism .
The truth they want to hide is that the Ottoman Empire was Rome itself.
Our interest in history is already confined to the fictions of divided time and disconnected from geographies. The Turkish language has the most exonyms, we are ahead by far, but we are unaware of those geographies. With its 50-year plan since 1978, China is designing the future without being stuck with its own dynastic history: Made in China.
Roman Law was codified in Istanbul with Justinian. With Kanuni (Magnificient Suleyman), the city of Istanbul had the same function in Islamic Law this time.
HOLY KNOWLEDGE is the name of a Church ( Hagia Sophia ) in Istanbul in the Eastern Roman world; It is the Art of State Administration in Turks (Kutadgu Bilig). The naming is the same, but the contents are disjointed by the metaphysics/objectivity contrast.
Through the Roman Empire, the Italians brought the world, not their language, but the Latin Alphabet. Latin is a dead language, but the Latin Alphabet is alive. The English also took that alphabet in history and started to use it. But they also dictated their language to the world through that alphabet.
Of course, the sad thing is that the West has embraced our Roman heritage. This distortion presents a clear picture. This is where we will use the term “politics”. If Europe collapsed even though it did not deserve the legacy of Rome, let’s see if we can get this legacy back through the Eastern Mediterranean by making politics.
The defense strategies of the Roman Empire were shaped on the borders of Turkey against their arch-enemy, the Sassanids (Iran). Especially Malatya and Diyarbakir were the border garrisons of Rome.
The place where Roman Law was written was Istanbul in the period of Justinian. Let’s move forward with confident steps from the past to the future.
The Roman Empire, which did not see a future in the West, moved its capital to Istanbul. The capital of Europe has always been Istanbul, up from Londinium (London) in the UK down to Zerzevan Castle in South-Eastern Turkey.
We are the heirs of ROME, we could be aware of the fact.
Our line is the 41st Parallel between Tonyukuk’s (*) birthplace YunZhong and Istanbul and Rome; It is Mashallah 41 times.
The Wise Power Line connects the Zero Stones. The 41st latitude is also our sight-eye-stye line; Our travels between the west and east will enrich us each time. China at one end of the line and European connections at the other end offer opportunities with the new Silk Roads.
Wasn’t Rome collapsed in 395 and re-established in Istanbul ? Orhun-Otuken-Samarkand-Horasan-Bursa- Istanbul -Plovdiv-Skopje-Rome northern axis reaches Zero Stone at Red Apple Rome (Istanbul) .
The rebirth of Rome, born in Italy, took place in Turkey and continues.
Happy Sunday my dear friends.
