Jim W. Dean – Mr. Sheikh has an excellent review of the Trump post-missile strike on Syria, in terms of what it revealed about future US policy, or maybe I should say, the lack of one.
Jim W. Dean – As I have always said, and been ignored, killing the Jihadis on the battlefield is a short-term accomplishment, when they can be easily replaced by those waiting in the bullpen training camps.
Jim W. Dean – The worm seems to be turning in US-Ukraine relations, with this story on major cutbacks in US financial support, but with a caveat. There is no mention of any military cutbacks, just in “reform” and economic aid.
Jim W. Dean – I had expected some new Russian troops to be coming into Syria with the already published plans to boost up Syria’s missile defenses, as there would be no time to train Syrian personnel on the newer equipment.
Jim W. Dean – This is Uri at his best today, going to bat for an abused underdog with whom he is politically aligned, Marwan Barghouti, who has been spending much of his life in prison for resisting the Zionist occupation, as the Zionists did with the British mandatory government before them.
Jim W. Dean – Mr. Engdahl takes us behind the EU economic curtain for a peek at what a hollowed-out Swiss cheese it is. The banksters and deep-state actors have already looted the Union, leaving the electorate holding the debt bag.
Jim W. Dean -There are some surprising gems in this official Community Party editorial, including the direct threat to North Korea concerning if its nuke program endangers Chinese in the region.
Jim W. Dean – The pot is beginning to simmer between China and South Korea, with public animosity against the Korean deployment of the THAAD anti-missile deployment topping the list.
Jim W. Dean – Now we have not only a highly probable fake gas attack in Idlib, but an investigation that is more fake than the attack itself. There has been little public outrage over the investigation scandal.
Jim W. Dean – What we saw happen here is the US do another Gulf of Tonkin deal, and despite the long history of manufactured events like this, most of the country, media, and institutions just swallowed it.
Jim W. Dean – Color me suspicious, but I do agree with Gates that the world in general has to be pro-active for such events. What I disagree with completely is no mention of that preparation including spilling the history of these diseases already having been prepared to use by state actors.
Jim W. Dean – There is no greater treason for President and his Military and Intel command than to take the country to war on fake intelligence. The US has a long record of doing that, long proven, so that is carved in stone.
Jim W. Dean – Americans have a lot to worry about concerning their future. We notice a growing numbness among the folks, not only refusing to do much to correct the situation, but not wanting to even think about it.
Jim W. Dean – This boggles the mind in its stupidity, that no one in the US Embassy system wanted to draw attention to themselves by interfering in standard procedures. So a three month old baby had to be brought down to London for a terrorism interview – YJCMTSU
Jim W. Dean – If anyone out there is still living in the fantasyland that they are living in a democracy this is a life line story to help you climb back into the world of reality.
Jim Dean – Albrecht Dittrich, a young East German national science scholar, becomes a Cold War KGB spy sent to America, only to end up fully Americanized after ten years of being operational. This is the first such agent to describe what it was like living deep under cover.
Jim W. Dean – One of the continuing failures of modern democracies is the addiction to filling top government positions with political hacks and lackeys. Boris Johnson is a perfect case.
Jim W. Dean – I had predicted that, despite any winding down of the Syrian war and a political settlement, the horrors of these suicide and car bombers could be with us forever.
Russia insists that chemical weapons were not used in Khan Sheikhoun in Syria’s Idlib province, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Thursday.
Jim W. Dean – This interview by Assad is the strongest and most comprehensive I can remember seeing, in terms of the powerful Western countries he lists in his verbal “perp walk” of who the terrorists are in Syria.
Jim W. Dean – We are seeing a consistent flow of good material on the sleeping giant geopolitical topic of our time, the fraud of America’s political and military establishments presenting themselves as the defenders of freedom and democracy when their record is exactly the opposite.
Jim W Dean – America’s record as a defender of freedom and democracy has been destroyed by its own hand, and most publicly so. Americans have been lied to for so long that we suffer from a numbness that renders us unable to effectively resist on the scale needed to save ourselves.
Jim W. Dean – One of the downsides of these highly public bombing locations for the perpetrators is all the security cameras. Russian investigators identified him quickly as Akbarzhon Jalilov, a Kurd.
Jim W. Dean – The bias of the media coverage on the civilian causalities in Aleppo versus Mosul are a dark stain on whatever fig leaf of honor corporate media could still claim.
Jim W. Dean – Henry Kamens gives us an interesting analysis on the ever-changing Mr. Erdogan, who has a lot of irons in the fire. Iran and Russia are on the spot with their errant tripartite partner.
Jim W. Dean – The Flynn story refuses to go away, but it is just the tip of the iceberg. He is by no means the first to cash in on his former high government position experience.
Jim W. Dean – Despite the endless claims of Iranian support, no one has shown us the secret Iranian invisible planes and ships that are bringing in the supplies, despite the Saudis and Arab coalition having control, or despite the air and the naval blockade.
Jim W. Dean – The cat is out of the bag on this story, the mention of Gulen being a major US Intelligence asset, and that being just a bit of a hurdle for turning him over to Turkey.
Jim W. Dean – I was to slip into this show that a new “replacement ISIS” force has been in the works as the success of the Mosul operation predicted their losing their base. Saudi Arabia, its Gulf State partners, Turkey, Britain and the US and Israel, of course are teamed up in the effort.
Jim W. Dean – As he often does, Seth Ferris absorbs an event for a while before writing about it, avoiding the rush to claim the “who dun it” prize on day one, a national pastime for Internet Dick Tracys.
