    wikileaks also mentioned Erdogan wanted Turkey to become the new Ottoman empire, expanding into the Balkans. Maybe this can also explain the problems at the expected Armenian-Turkey reconciliation that never materialized, when Turkey only really wanted Armenians to give up their land in Azerbaijan. Also, his visit to Beirut, to compete with Iran for hegemony of the region; only Beirutis did not forget in their matyr square, that their arab intellectuals were hanged.
