THE BIGGEST PIVOTS IN HISTORY ARISE FROM SOME BALLSY GROUP STATING THE OBVIOUS.
Debating U.S. War Law.
All the ISIS people who were celebrating the big dual terror attacks on Iran just got introduced to the new arithmetic, that Iran can reach out and touch them, and knows where they are.
Jim W. Dean – Missed in all of this North Korea missile hype was the offer from the North Koreans to stop their missile testing if the US would stop its annual war games with the S. Koreans, but was ignored.
Brzezinski’s death, at a hospital in Northern Virginia, was announced on Friday night by his daughter, Mika, on social media.
Jim W. Dean – As VT readers know we have been on pins and needles hoping that the Turks would not be so stupid to think they were going to fight their way through to Manbij, driving the Kurds out, when their main forces were fully engaged in trying to encircle Raqqa north of the Euphrates.
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.
Jim W. Dean – We had Gordon to roast the Prez last night over his Santa Claus with the magic sleigh speech that had endless goodies for everybody, all for free.
Jim W. Dean – After a full liberation of Mosul, Iraq needs to dispatch its troops to the border with Syria, Turkey and Saudi Arabia to prevent terrorists from returning to the country.

Jim W. Dean – The Iran sanctions triggered its “Manhattan program” to build up its own domestic weapons program using its skilled talent and industrial base, and Iran is much stronger militarily now than before the sanctions.
Jim W. Dean – Iran continues to signal to those threatening it that any attack will be met with a full retaliation, the most effective being the destruction of the energy exporting infrastructure of Gulf State perpetrators and resulting economic fallout.
Jim W. Dean, Boycotting Israel is not enough. It should be sanctioned as a WMD threat and a human rights serial violator. It is payback time for those who have earned it.
Jim W. Dean, So the question that must be asked is when does political advocacy cross over the line into becoming political espionage for a foreign power?
Jim W. Dean, Due to the corporate media blackout VT has here in the US, we are rolling around that with our new radio network and building more foreign media platform partnerships.

Iran’s Press TV is still a force to be reckoned with, from a broadcast standpoint. They are still blocked from most satellites, from most service providers and from many entire nations.
