Jim W. Dean – The catch phrase here is the weasel term that Christopher Ford used, “until otherwise decided”. But this gives us time to challenge the strategy of the military build up to add to America’s huge forward deployment.
Jim W. Dean – This silliness of Trump’s claim about how anyone could think the Iran deal was a good deal is his flipping the bird at the whole world. It was a huge achievement, but because it was Obama’s achievement.
U.S. soldiers gather at a military base north of Mosul. Editor’s note: This is a good enough RT piece to publish but not so good that failure to point out some “oddness” isn’t important as well. Dan seems to be more than a bit myopic it seems. Were one to take a look at the […]

New World Order agents “are championing a liberation doctrine that allows them to present bombing and invading other countries at will as an act of supreme moral virtue.”
Jim W. Dean – This does not come as a surprise, since “certain parties” did not get their attack on Iran, and their bogus claims of an Iran nuclear weapons program were shot down in flames; the lawyers figured that at least they could get a load of bucks to the 9-11 victims.
We add “Petraeus” to the list, one he may be head of, “blackmailed Americans working for foreign intelligence agencies. To this list which includes a president

Will the current craziness wake Americans up and force them to search for answers?
F. William Engdahl – A strategic pivot is taking place to build a war coalition for US control of the oil and gas of the Middle East. It is not about “peace” in cooperation with Russia in Syria, because Washington must break the Eurasian triangle or face superpower twilight. That is what the entire Kissinger-Trump project is about.
Jim W. Dean – Iran needs to up its game by forming a “coalition of the unwilling” that refuses to go along with Trump’s new Iran threat hype. It should have natural allies in the other P5+1 members with the exception of Britain.
Jim W. Dean – Well, it looks like the grownups have won another one with the new White House staff, with its backing off putting the terrorist tag on Iran’s Republican Guard BEFORE seeking feedback from the professionals.
Jim W. Dean – So far the Trump administration is stupidly attempting to hang world terrorism on the Iranians, which will go over like a lead balloon. Does Trump want to step into Obama’s shoes of playing the “good terrorist-bad terrorist” game?
Trump and Bibi: the classic folie-à-deux?

Jim W. Dean – Trump is getting away with murder here, with the help of the stand down of virtually all the world media in ignoring that the long time hoax about Iran’s nuclear weapons program was completely exposed with the G5+1 agreement
Jim W. Dean – It saddens me to see U.S. spokespersons reaching into the Joseph Goebbels bag of tricks of, “If you are going to tell a lie, make it a big one as they are easier to get over on the public.
Jim W. Dean – I had been waiting for Trump to pick his Iran club back up, but must say I was surprised with this “Iran is the biggest exporter of terror” silliness. The Donald was working for Israel on this one, not the American people.
Following recent remarks made by President Trump branding Iran “the number one terrorist state,” and US media outlets claiming that the Trump administration is “looking to divide Russia’s relations with Tehran,”
WASHINGTON (JTA) – Israeli settlements are no big problem. Wait — maybe they are, after all. The Iran deal is trash. No, the deal is here to stay, despite being “weak.” On Thursday, the White House pronounced on Israel’s announced settlement expansion that it “may not help” peace, and it put Iran “on notice” […]
