Why did the Ottomans enact reforms?
Perhaps a slightly more intelligent Sultan came to rule, and saw what was happening. They helped instead of persecuted those in the Balkans, which led in part to an agricultural revolution.
Why didn't they join WWI?

Why did the US decline so much after their defeat?
Numerous small effects, as well as the war and the depression meant they slowly declined.
