It’s not Russia that is forcing itself into the Middle East, but the countries that have grown weary and are tired of serving vested, genocidal interests, at the cost of their losing sovereignty, resources and security. The Iraqi government is sending its Vice President Nouri al-Maliki to purposely make such a request. Continue reading Baghdad Wants More of Russia in Iraq
Historian and author Ervand Abrahamian of Baruch College analyzes the recently revealed files on the CIA’s role in the 1953 Iran coup, as Trump officials and allies float the possibility of regime change in Tehran Continue reading Does Trump Want to Redo the 1953 CIA Coup in Iran?
The battle for the recovery of Mosul against ISIS is winding down, but Iraq is not happy with the US assistance it is receiving, and some segments of the Iraqi forces are now contemplating on attacking the US forces that are already there in Iraq.
Newly declassified CIA documents emphasize the agency’s significant role in the 1953 coup d’etat in Iran. While the CIA-led operation is still regarded by Washington as a “success,” it actually led to dire consequences for both Iran and America, RIA Novosti contributor Vladimir Ardayev wrote. Continue reading Crude, Blood, Turmoil: Story of US First ‘Successful’ Overseas Regime Change
Qatar hasn’t been playing ball with the US-approved, Saudi-led ‘isolate Iran’ program. Partly because Doha has made independence from Riyadh a hallmark of its foreign policy, but mostly because Qatar and Iran share the world’s largest natural gas field. Continue reading The Qatar Blockade, Petro-Yuan & Coming War on Iran
It only took 5 days for the US to confirm that indeed it is extorting Qatar via proxy. On June 10, we made the strong case that just like Japan and other places, the Middle East countries are being extorted in exchange for their own security and an open market for its oil. Continue reading US Extortion vs. Qatar is Confirmed
They’ve been denying this for weeks, i.e. that they’ve been killing hundreds of civilians using highly illegal munitions, in the City of Mosul, Iraq and Raqqa City, Syria. But a New Zealand general broke his silence and made the first admission to the war crime. Continue reading US-led Coalition Admits Use of White Phosphorus in Mosul & Raqqa
Back in 2015, Vladimir Putin made a fiery speech at the UN, indicting the Obama administration for the destruction of Libya, and the murder of Muammar Gaddafi, among other geopolitical high crimes. Continue reading Resurrecting Libya
Sensing that the simultaneous diplomatic attack on Qatar, and the twin terrorist bombings of the Iranian Parliament and Khomeini Shrine, are all related and purposely directed to the country, Iran has announced that it is in possession of hard evidence and documents implicating the United States government in the terroristic activities of the Daesh Islamic State. Continue reading We have evidence of US direct support to ISIL | Iran
Saudi Arabia’s standoff against Qatar was fraught with miscalculations and comically ill-conceived notions from the start. But now the crisis is becoming a threat to Riyadh’s own prominence and security in the Middle East. Continue reading Riyadh Plan Backfires after Trump flip-flop & Turkey Ruse
The Qatari government is being accused of funding terrorist groups by the equally guilty, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Gulf Cooperation Council [GCC]. It is said to have paid the Al Qaeda to the tune of $1 billion, for the release of some of the members of the Qatari royalty, who were kidnapped in Iraq back in 2015. However, the funds never reached the kidnappers. Continue reading Is Qatar a Financier of Terror, or a Victim of Extortion by Proxy?
US President Donald Trump could not possibly have predicted the game-changing after-effects of his triumphal sword dance in Riyadh. Or could he? Continue reading Trump’s Sword Dance Sets Off the War of the Wahhabis | Pepe Escobar
The dramatic war of words that has erupted between Persian Gulf Arab states has the hallmarks of theatrics. Saudi Arabia and several of its allies are accusing Qatar of “sponsoring terrorism” and “destabilizing” the region. Continue reading Gulf Row Cover for West Arming Despots
Western Corporatists have for decades waged an aggressive war on socialist states through economic sanctions and military embargo just to prove that capitalism is much superior to the latter. That is not, of course, the true measure of superiority. We would rather see how many of the people have actually benefited from such a system. Continue reading Socialism’s Ignored Success Story
Qatar has just been booted out from the “Iran is terrorist” crowd lead by Saudi Arabia. It’s only fault is, it dares to think peace with Iran as the third way for establishing harmony in the region. Four Arab states Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Egypt decided to sever diplomatic ties with Qatar. Continue reading Why Qatar is thrown out from Middle East Terror, Inc.?
Embattled at home in a do-or-die war (or “witch hunt”) against powerful factions of the deep state, President Trump, in the first stop of his first foreign trip, lands with pomp and circumstance in the ultimate totalitarian theocracy. Continue reading Abu Trump al-Amriki in Action!
Iranian President Rouhani won a resounding reelection victory on Saturday with 23,549,616 votes or 57 percent of the total ballots. His nearest rival in the four-man race, Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi, secured 15,786,449 votes, or 38.5 percent. Continue reading Iranian President Rouhani Reelected
After realizing that the US Congress’s move to allow the filing of charges against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for its supposed role in the “terrorist” attack on New York in 2001 could be Washington DC’s way of putting the House of Saud on notice — that it, too, is not exempt from its two-faced foreign policy, and could be a future target for a regime change once it ceases to be a willing subject to systematic extortion, like what’s being done with Japan for decades right after the Second World War, the House of Saud continues to engage Russia for a possible common ground. Continue reading Saudi Arabia Switching to BRICS in Response to US Congress 911 Blackmail
CENTCOM commander Army Gen. Joseph Votel channeled his full Dr. Strangelove in front of the US House Armed Services Committee this past Wednesday. Continue reading Pentagon & Daesh Target Iran
We tried to avoid, or at least postpone, it until after 6 months when we evaluate with considerable certainty what the Trump administration is all about. But the US forces’ actions in Mosul, Iraq, and in Raqqa, Syria, are persistently reckless, i.e. genocidal, by any measure.
Why is the US genocide, sold as humanitarian interventions, continuing under Trump?
The RAND Corporation’s recent piece titled, “Al Qaeda in Syria Can Change Its Name, but Not Its Stripes,” all but admits what was already suspected about designated terrorist groups operating in Syria – that they are undergoing a transition in an attempt by their state sponsors to bolster their legitimacy and spare them from liquidation amid the shifting tides on the battlefield. Continue reading Al Qaeda Rebranding Serves US Agenda
There’s an ongoing daylight genocide in Yemen by the House of Saud using Western supplied arms and ammunitions, which the mainstream media tried to ignore until now. Continue reading Bringing Down the House of Saud
After Butcher Netanyahu failed to convince Russian President Vladimir Putin of abandoning Iran via cessation of Russia’s highly effective armed intervention in Syria, using 5th century events, Continue reading Apartheid Israel Warns Putin of More Airstrikes vs. Syria
The British-US plan to weaken Iran via the proxy war on Syria has spectacularly backfired. Now they are more desperate than ever to bring Iran to its knees.
Western think tanks and ‘strategic institutes’ have been getting themselves in a cold sweat about Iranian influence for some time. Continue reading The West’s Sights Are Now Clearly Set on Iran
Six years into the crisis in Syria, Iran sees the outcome of the conflict as shaping the new Middle East. It was Iran’s first overt foreign intervention in decades, one that some Iranian ideologues have called a war for existence. Continue reading In Syria, Iran Sees Necessary War
Another reason for the possible murder of the Russian Ambassador to the UN is the entry of the Russians in the NATO-disintegrated Libya. Continue reading Russia Aiming to Reestablish Libyan State
In a strong warning that Riyadh is within reach of their missiles, the Yemeni Army just dropped one in a Saudi military camp, 40 kms. away from the Saudi capital. Continue reading Yemeni Ballistic Missile Struck a Military Camp near Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Everybody is slapping on him as he exits the White House by those tired of dealing his signature, constant flip-flopping on critical geopolitical issues, effectively frustrating even his “close friends” in the Middle East.
For the last 16 days, the Russian Aerospace Forces have halted their operations over Aleppo to prove to the United Nations, and the world, that they are not keen on killing civilians in their efforts to recover the city from terrorists, as claimed by Western leaning institutions.
As the U.S.-backed offensive in Mosul, Iraq, begins, the mainstream U.S. media readies the American people to blame the terrorists for civilian casualties but the opposite rules apply to Syria’s Aleppo.
