Jim W. Dean – VT was right again. We smelled right away that this new desert fight in Syria was not a skirmish that Damascus had assigned to some throwaway militias to give them something to do.
Jim W. Dean – No one here at VT had any doubts of what the result of all Trump’s groveling to Israel would be. He has now been handed his official presidential knee pads.
Jim W. Dean – Russian would not be putting regular army combat units into the Syria conflict now unless it was responding to the US coalition already having done so, to hold the line while the 100,000+ strong Iraqi Popular Militia Forces can help secure the Syrian Eastern border.
Jim W. Dean – We have tactical video Intel from a Popular Militia Forces commander that a coordinated military operation is already in progress…consisting of Russia, Iran, Iraq and Syria to make sure that their border area can never be used as a conduit for terrorists.
Jim W. Dean – Alla Pierce has brought us a wonderful remembrance article on the poor victims of the savage Ukie nationalists’ mass murder attack at the Trade Union building in Odessa in May of 2014.
Jim W. Dean – The SAA strategy has allowed ISIS to regroup and set up defense points in the Maskanah countryside that can then be observed and bombed with no losses to the the Tiger Force, which has to conserve its equipment and experienced fighters.
Jim W. Dean – Viktor Mikhin gives us a good review of the Saudi Royal family trying to play “Puff the Magic Dragon” with Iran, via its borrowed Israeli tactic of making an aggressive bogeyman out of a country that has attacked no one in hundreds of years.
Jim W. Dean – The US is using a small number of militants, backed up by air power in Jordan, to take over as much of the SE Syrian border as possible. This is offense, not defense, meant to block Iraqi forces from joining the SAA anti-ISIS fight inside Syria.
Jim W. Dean – I sense a game of chicken being played that could have dangerous consequences. Is the US baiting Assad or even the Russians to respond?
Jim W. Dean – This is a strange article from the Russians this far after the event. The number of missiles that struck the airbase is of no consequence to the story at this point in the post-strike analysis.
Jim W. Dean – Even as concern for Trump’s incompetent White House is being voiced by Congressional Republicans, no one will touch the subject of what danger the country would be in during a national crisis, with these proven misfits at the helm. Fear is spreading across the land.
Jim W. Dean – This endless game of fortunes being put into weapons systems where, by the time they are deployed, after the delays and endless fixes to get them operational, the targets have deployed an effective counter.
Jim W. Dean – Always missing from these whiny stories is any mention of the history of mass executions of Syrian soldiers who were captured by foreign jihadis AND opposition groups. A Google search will bring on a large number of photos and videos which have been plastered all over the internet.
Jim W. Dean – Rex Tillerson denigrates himself and the country with his childish explanation of the US-Russian diplomatic standoff being all Russia’s fault, where the US is just an innocent victim.
Jim W. Dean – During a Mother’s Day weekend, many might have missed the news that Comey passed on a closed Congressional hearing on some of his controversial work. But then he agreed to a public hearing.
Grant Smith of IRmep has been the bionic bulldog on this long running Israeli nuclear espionage case that official Washington would prefer the public never know anything about.
Jim W. Dean – Some of this could be staging and play acting, so we will have to wait and see what the jihadis do, and then the guarantors, especially Turkey who has a long record of having supported the insurgents.
Jim W. Dean – We are walking a knife edge now to see not only if the “de-escalation plan” will hold, but if it will even get started. As I type, HTS in Idlib is confiscating the weapons and ammo of the opposition groups targeted to participate in the safe zones.
Jim W. Dean – Is the US building a national Kurdish army, with combined operations capability? Yes it is, and quite openly so. This is the US’ answer to the Russian and Iranian involvement, but leaving out that the US goal from the beginning was an offensive one.
Jim W. Dean – Well it looks like trouble has come to jihadi paradise. The al Nusra crowd has issued a fatwa against any of the “moderate” Syrian opposition groups, such that they will be attacked for complying with the deescalation zone program.
Jim W. Dean – We are beginning to not only see more of alternative media take on the Fake Media giants, but do so in a professional way via something that used to be known as “investigative journalism”.
Jim W. Dean – This firing came out of the blue, in what seems to be another shoot from the hip Trump move, despite the organized cover from the Justice Department.
Jim W. Dean – Once again we have a situation where two internal investigators did their jobs by breaking the story, which is the only reason we are hearing about this. They got fired of course.
Jim W. Dean – No one hates war more than the Russians do. This is why the manufactured US hype of the “Russian threat” is such a devious fraud on the American people. The Russian people would never politically support any such offense,
Jim W. Dean – Trump has learned the hard way that Reality TV Show blustering is not only an unsuitable demeanor for a President, but a disaster in foreign policy.
Jim W. Dean – Uri has a wonderful piece for us today, a big peek behind the curtain into how the Zionist regime has used its huge number of holidays to forge a common Jewish supremacy and victimology mindset in an attempt to bind its disparate factions together.
Jim W. Dean – My, my… this came as a big surprise; a multi-billion euro jump in trade, in just the first two months of the year; a bit of a hint that some of the sanctions have a play-acting feature to them.
Jim W. Dean – This was a strange twist of fate, and not unfairly so. That is because, during the two previous ceasefires, the US failed to separate their opposition forces from Al-Nusra and ISIS, proving itself an unreliable partner.
Jim W. Dean – The fairy tale of Emmanuel Macron emerging as an “organic candidate”, new party and all, out of the blue, always struck me as the Deep State crowd testing if P.T. Barnum’s old maxim, “There’s a sucker born every minute” was still in play. It is.
Jim W. Dean – Director Comey is nothing if not a good “testifier”. It is not a common talent to find on an executive resume, but a much needed one for a department head inside the Beltway,
