Jim W. Dean – As the jihadis lose Aleppo block by block, will the Syrian coalition make a deal with Obama on a settlement, or wait for possible better terms from Mr. Trump?
Jim W. Dean – You must forgive me for the Rod Serling plug but we are all children of our times and those who can remember watching early black and white TV will never forget the Twilight Zone.
Jim W. Dean – The Western Coalition media war on Syria did not work on Aleppo despite the recruitment of the UN to add its outrageous claim of its becoming a vast graveyard due to the Syrian Army killing its own people.
Jim W. Dean – My predictions in this interview that the main reason the Western and Gulf State backers want to drag the taking of Aleppo out as long as possible are coming true.
Jim W. Dean – It was a surprise to see the huge numbers of Democrats abandon this huge Iran accomplishment by their own president. The Republicans are giddy with glee as the Iranians look like they might crank up nuclear operations.
Gordon Duff – Behind the scenes, the NeoCon cabal that many believe staged 9/11 and that certainly fabricated the casus belli to justify what was intended to be an American conquest of Central Asia, has now emerged as the real power behind Trump.
Jim W. Dean – The Trump song and dance show is on the road, and as expected he is grabbing the headlines with bold initiatives. This is nothing new, as Obama did the same thing, especially after his Nobel Peace Prize.
Jim W. Dean – China has done nothing by grab a few cheap headlines in Syria, over some medical supplies “to fight terrorism”, and similarly with Iraq. It is saving its resources for the home front.
Jim W. Dean – This admission by Qatar to keep the Syrian War going even if Trump pulls out support for the opposition revealed how embedded the “rent-a-Jihadi” game has become.
Jim W. Dean – Seth has once again dared to go where few writers would on this bizarre trip of John Kerry to the South Pole, of all places, just before the election.
Jim W. Dean – Bibi instantly knew that attention would be quickly focused on government unpreparedness for such an event and wanted to jump the headlines with the terrorism tag.
Jim W. Dean – Has General Sisi taken the gamble to strengthen his anti-terrorism efforts with some live fire training for his own troops in Syria, after watching how Iran and Russia gained that experience?
Jim W. Dean – Alla has touched on an important issue, how the New World Order barbarian hordes are perverting history as a demonizing tool for conditioning the public into supporting their perverse goals as a good thing.
Jim W. Dean – Mr. Sheikh makes the case in his article that rebel fortunes will continue to decline in Aleppo, but how much of a win that will be for Damascus remains to be seen.
Jim W. Dean – All of the GOP insiders who are contending for top slots hid from the public during the primaries because they would have spoiled Trump’s “drain the swamp” pitch by being visible. But here they all are. Color me suspicious.
Henry Kamens – Earlier this year the U.S. military launched cruise missiles at radar sites along Yemen’s Red Sea coast, after its ships were supposedly targeted by missiles fired from rebel-controlled areas. Apparently the last cruise missile attacks didn’t work, because the rebels are still shooting. This suggests that neither the attacks on the warships nor the US response were real, but were more false flags during an election year in support of failed US regional policy.
Jim W. Dean – With Russia and Iran being “friends” with Turkey, the political dynamics there can also undermine their own military efforts in terms of what is really going to be the end game for them security-wise with a defacto Balkanization of Syria.
Jim W. Dean – Do European elites fear the Trump win could prompt a movement to throw the ruling class out? An already fractured Europe seems to feel they do, but will rest easier after seeing his gold plated team of NeoCon Washington insiders. The grass roots folks got conned again.
Jim W. Dean – The Arab world has a lot to fear from Trump, as he will also be the de facto president of Israel, with Shelley Adelson as an unofficial Secretary of State for Netanyahu.
Jim W. Dean – We may see the children of the current negotiators still discussing these mega trade deals many years from now, China will play everybody against each other to get the best long-term deal.
Jim W. Dean – Uri misses completely any analysis of the “powers that be” working to always give us two candidates who will royally serve their interests, but allow the candidates to differ on issues that don’t mean anything to the elites.
Jim W. Dean – The US-NATO march toward the Russian border is causing Moscow to build up its military strength and technology on a Manhattan Project scale to have the technical edge it needs to defend against superior numbers.
Jim W. Dean – This is all a dangerous game, all the more so because the US would probably do a cyber attack on itself, with more than a little damage, to assure public support for a major cyber counter attack.
Seth Ferris – The real reason for this move is not sanctions against the Russian state. It is because a seemingly unimportant event has the potential to shake the foundations of the United Kingdom – and those in the corridors of power have just woken up to it.
Jim W. Dean – Even an amateur could spot this hoax. Somebody is desperate to create a climate calling for attacks on the Syrian and Russian Air Forces. Gosh, who could possibly want that?
Jim W. Dean – I knew Motorola would be trashed in the media as a follow on to the assassination plot, the CIA and Kiev wanting to paint a picture of itself just killing terrorists to make the world safer.
Jim W. Dean – This is a classical Uri Avnery piece, combining his many decades of intimate Israeli military and political history, including first-hand knowledge of some of the accounts of the Yom Kippur War.
Jim W. Dean – Americans are hardly familiar with who Motorola was, but I can zero them in very quickly. Just think of Lt. Dick Winters in the Band of Brothers movie and you will have it.
Jim W. Dean – We are watching the fruits of regime change and destabilization in Iraq getting ready to be picked — now that this weak and corrupt government can no longer hold a fractious state together without outside support.
Jim W. Dean – It comes as no surprise that the rebels are shelling the aid routes. It is their way of voting no for losing their human shields, which makes the use of heavy weapons more likely to rain down on them.
