Topic: Chanak Crisis


  
  Keller: Winston Churchill Falls from Political Power in 1922
He was seen as a key figure promoting force in Chanak, a town on the Western Shore of Turkey and the Coalition government was losing the popularity it had previously held and was on the verge of collapse.
A strange coincidence made the town of Chanak, on the Eastern Shore of the Dardanelles, the waterway that separates Turkey in Europe and Asia (Asia Minor), the indirect cause of political disaster for Winston Churchill for the second time in eight years.
Chanak may fairly be regarded as the event that finally drew together Conservatives who were divided on continued support of Lloyd George and the Coalition.

 Smyrna 1922: Spain and Mustapha Kemal
This crisis raised the scepter of a war between France and Germany.
From the time of the Chanak crisis till the signing of the Mudania Convention, Lord Curzon's diplomacy was directed towards ensuring that the Greek and Turkish armies did not violate the neutral zones and to achieve the retirement of the Greek forces from Eastern Thrace.
On the 23 September, the British Cabinet decided that the retention of Chanak was essential for two reasons: first, to maintain the freedom of the straits; and second to prevent war spreading to Europe.

The breakpoint to an international crisis is that event, act or situational change which catalyzes a crisis for the earliest actor, that is, which leads decision makers to perceive a threat to basic values, time pressure for response and heightened probability of involvement in military hostilities.
Intra-war crisis is an attribute of an international crisis as a whole; that is, it is characterized by an increase in the intensity of disruptive interaction and incipient change within the structure of an international system.
An international crisis is identified as an IWC when three conditions obtain: (1) the crisis is an integral part of an ongoing war; (2) at least one of the principal adversaries is a continuing actor in that war; and (3) it is an inter-state war, not a civil or purely guerrilla war.

 The Whitlam Institute: The Whitlam Collection: Education and Ethnicity
Learning from the Chanak crisis, the Prime Ministers of the Dominions gained the right at the 1926 Imperial Conference to communicate directly with the Prime Minister of Britain instead of communicating with the British Government through a Governor-General appointed by the British monarch on the advice of the British Government.
We may yet live to see the Chanak crisis as an early step on the road to the Australian Republic.
In 1946 Tito, born on the border of Slovenia and Croatia to a Croat father and a Slovene mother, ordained borders between the six constituent republics in the reconstituted Yugoslavia in a fashion designed to override rather than to confirm ethnic, religious and historic divisions.

 Chanak Crisis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Chanak Crisis (also called the Chanak Affair) occurred in September 1922, when British troops stationed near Çanakkale (also called "Chanak"), on the Dardanelles, were threatened with attack by Turkey.
By the time the issue had been debated in the Canadian House of Commons, the threat at Chanak had passed.
The Chanak Crisis was also a factor in the downfall of the British Prime Minister, David Lloyd George.

Following the Chanak crisis with Turkey late in 1922 and the narrow avoidance of renewed war, Hughes's Government lost heavily at a general election.

In response to this crisis it looked to America for refortification, and so incurred a debt it has perhaps been repaying ever since.
It also made its commitment of a naval contingent (for the purposes of sanctions enforcement) when resolutions to the Gulf crisis other than war were still favoured by the international community.
Australian involvement in the Vietnam and Second Gulf Wars was pursuant to direct requests from Washington to “fly the flag” in these conflict zones, to prevent the appearance of unilateral action by the United States—a charge America has always meticulously sought to avoid.

As the Chanak crisis with Turkey illustrated, Britain was also hampered by the fact that while its forces in the region might be sufficient to deter conflict briefly, a major war would require mobilization, which would be time consuming and probably unacceptable politically.
Because instability and inability to repay debts would justify and invite European intervention in the region (as the Venezuelan debt crisis of 1902 and the subsequent Hague Court decision underscored), this realpolitik objective logically dictated what became known as the Roosevelt corollary to the Monroe Doctrine—that the United States itself would intervene to prevent misgovernment.
In the wake of the Venezuelan crisis of 1902, the two great powers that might conceivably have disputed American hegemony, Great Britain (which had the naval power but not the interest) and Germany (which found itself diplomatically at odds with the United States but was otherwise engaged in Europe), effectively conceded the region.

 Set the Alarm for 2011
These handsomely fashioned chapters stand alone as monographs, but that is precisely the problem: they are not supposed to stand alone.
In the section on post-cold-war America, we do occasionally encounter a claim for a strict analogy: the end of the Persian Gulf war is like the defective Versailles Treaty; the 1994 Agreed Framework arrangement with North Korea resembles the pusillanimous conclusion to the 1923 Corfu crisis; and a few others.
But then, upon reaching the concluding section of the book, the reader is told: ''It has not been the purpose of this work to draw precise parallels.

 RANDY BOSWELL
Saul suggested that Canada's push for a United Nations-brokered solution to the Iraq crisis and its decision not to join the U.S. and Britain in battle reflect a mindset ultimately rooted in the state's rejection of violent reprisals during the Montreal riots of 1849.
Even during the Second World War, when Canadian troops joined with allies to defeat Nazi Germany, prime minister Mackenzie King's delicate handling of the conscription crisis was "a very good example" of the restraint critical to Canadian unity and stability, says Mr.
Canadian peacemaking, he adds, helped avert war in the Middle East during the Suez Crisis in the 20th century and the U.S.-style exterminations of aboriginal people in the 19th.

 From Smyrna to Mudania September-October 1922: Greek Reactions in U.S. and Greece
Over the next 4 weeks the New York Times would keep its readers informed on the drama that was to unfold at Smyrna, Chanak and the Mudania conference that eventually paved the way for an armistice to end Greek-Turkish conflict.
The Greek-American organisations sent telegrams to U.S President Warren Harding and Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, the Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, urging the American Government to assist the refugees from Smyrna and also hoping that the US might intervene in the Near East.
In the aftermath of the Greek-Turkish conflict, Britain faced the distinct possibility of going to war with Kemalist Turkey at Chanak, a town situated on the Asiatic side of the Dardanelles.

Using historical evidence to provide rapid support for policy advice is all too easy in a crisis, yet it is valuable to offer a historical resonance to current problems.
Under Kemal Ataturk, the Turks were able to impose their will after defeating the Greeks in 1922 and facing down the British the same year in the Chanak crisis.
This, however, was the background to a long-term improvement in relations with the Western world, which also helped to contain continued Greek-Turkish animosity, albeit with both Armenians and Kurds understandably feeling dissatisfied.
