Abstract:

The first wave of modern political terrorism hit Turkey in 1925 and continued intermittently until 1971. The second stage of terrorism occurred between the years of 1975 and 1980. In 1979 -- nearly at the end of the Cold War -- the Kurdistan Worker Party (PKK) was founded. Turkey has been the main target of PKK-related terrorism. Although the Turkish Armed Forces have succeeded in fighting terrorism and preserving the country, the PKK has survived by becoming a transnational terrorist group and seeking refuge in nations neighboring Turkey. To solve the issue of transnational terrorism, all nations should reach a consensus in this struggle and give a hand to each other. During the last three decades, the Turkish Armed Forces have gained a great deal of experience. Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, Turkey is and will remain an important partner for the United States. The purpose of this paper is to examine the U.S.-Turkey strategic partnership, the Turkish experience in the fight against terrorism, and the common security interest of the two countries. The paper also examines the two nations' war against terrorism through strategic alliance.
