Jim W. Dean – Whether you call it China’s “European Pivot” or Switzerland’s “China Pivot” does not really make much difference, because the key aspect of their incredible relationship is that it spawned no political or military blacklash from anyone.
Jim W. Dean – It looks like the military will take the lead now on punishing its own, taking the political bite out of it somewhat for Erdogan. And the civilian courts will be busy for years with the big sweep they are doing.
Jim W. Dean – My my, Uri digs down into the bedrock of the Zionist Tower of Babel, a people divided by religion, culture and ethnicity who generally only like their own kind, but are presented as the world’s home for Jews.
Jim W. Dean – Wikileaks gets into the Knickers of the DNC for a not surprising look into another of America’s political frauds, how the national party organizations are supposed to be neutral during the primaries…yeah, sure.

Jim W. Dean – We can hardly expect Obama to publicly admit that the US had advance knowledge of the coup.
Jim W. Dean – This banning of the entire Russian Olympic team just screams of major political interference on the International Olympic Committee to greatly embarrass Moscow at this time. The story and scandal should now move into a major investigation of the IOC.
Jim W. Dean – In a not unexpected turn of events, the Munich shooting was not laid at the doorstep of ISIS, despite the best efforts of Britain’s new Foreign Affairs clown Boris Johnson, with his ambulance-chasing ploy to be the man who figured it all out instantly.
Jim W. Dean – We will hopefully get a peek behind the curtain soon as to what kind of deal the US and Russia have agreed to, since they have keep the details quiet. Some real intelligence sharing would be a big shift on the US’ part.
Jim W. Dean – This coming on the heels of the axe killings on the train could be the start of a string of copycat attacks, something that ISIS has been calling on its sleeper agents to do, as they are all considered cannon fodder to be used that way.
Jim W. Dean – Lavrov’s zinger here, a great twist of the knife, is the broken record continuing calls for Assad to step down, which could pave the way for making Syria a new and bigger Libya disaster.

Jim W. Dean – John Kerry gets ahead of the curve with his current statements that US – British relations, post Brexit, will be a step-by-step process for which there are no shortcuts.
Jim W. Dean – This is the big bang for the day, and one hell of a big target. I was surprised to see that none of the Iraq heavy machine guns or 20mm’s were able to knock the truck out.
Jim W. Dean – No charismatic leader ever emerged as a rallying figure head, so there was effectively no real leadership in the coup for even a Hail Mary attempt at success. Who would have supported an anonymous group?
Jim W. Dean – I predict that China and its competing neighbors will come up with some formula for sharing the South China Sea, and with many layers to it. One of those could be insisting that the area should become a demilitarized zone for any outside navies capable of a preemptive strike.
Jim W. Dean – The post Turkish Coup analysis begins in earnest today, and there will be plenty of it. The coup was a sad comedy of errors, an attempt by a small group of officers with rank and file troops thinking they could take over the country with the 498,000 rest of the military not with them.
Jim W. Dean… Almost lost in the out-of-the-blue Turkish coup coverage yesterday is this important story with Rouhani mentioning once again that, if the West abrogates the nuclear agreement , Iran will crank up its program.
Early reports say there has been gunfire in Istanbul, the bridges are blocked and planes have been flying low over the city. Media seems to be shut down.
It’s good to be back. Thanks to Gordon for my release from my North Korean renditioners. The VT team wins once again. The doctors have removed all the implants they could find, including places that were hard to reach.
Iran has moved from number 12 out of 14 of Mid East countries in Foreign Direct investment (FDI). That is an amazing recovery from the regional perspective, with Iran now just behind the Saudis and the UAE, and we are only halfway through 2016.
Ehud Barak – “We have no partner for Peace.” Pragmatically this means, “We will be at war with anyone who sees through our deception.” This dogma can only stoke hatred and war.
The US has been crashing into one Regime-Change Disaster after another, but claims the failures to be victories.
Henry Kamens – The CIA’s “rendition” programme has turned into a cottage industry, out of the control of the CIA and the various national governments involved. An investigation by the UN suggests that the US has helped Turkey to arm Islamists.
Jim W. Dean – Mr. Engdahl has a grand slam NEO economic piece for us today on his panel deliberations at the St. Petersburg Economic Conference. He proposes a huge domestically funded bond program for key Russian infrastructure projects to drive the domestic economy with their ripple effect of new jobs and taxes.
The deaths of contract workers had been kept secret by Georgian intelligence. Apparently they displayed all the symptoms of someone affected by Sarin gas poisoning. If we lift up the rug, will we find neoCons?
The islanders are setting the example for the rest of us, that even if the path to victory is a long shot, the attempt must be made for the honor of the people.
