Top Iranian general meets Turkish president

by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor   … with Press TV,  Tehran

The US Mideast foreign policy is blowing up in our faces, taking us all with it, as happened on the SS Paul Hamilton

[ Note: A major realignment is taking place in the Mideast, and no one can really know how it will turn out. What we do know is that the US Coalition proxy terror war has boomeranged.

Despite only Iran publicly calling the US and its allies state sponsors of terror, which everyone in the Intel and diplomatic corps has known for a long time, the US occupies the top slot as a threat to regional stability, with little country-level condemnation.

The US’ pitiful attempt to tag Iran as the biggest terrorism supporter was an act of desperation, seeming to show that the only card it is holding is to lie its way out of acknowledging the disaster of our Mideast policy, let alone all the lives and livelihoods that have been cruelly destroyed – actions that we hanged Nazi generals for after WWII for “waging an aggressive war”.

Those events are vividly in my mind, as I am now making arrangements to bury my mother at Arlington National Cemetery, as she was the 16-year-old widow of SSgt Leon Miller, KIA June 20, 1944, during the largest loss of life on a Liberty ship during WWII – when the SS Paul Hamilton with over 500 troops and 6000 tons of explosives took an aerial torpedo and went up like an A-bomb.

For “more efficient” shipping, the issue of putting troops on explosives-laden, unarmored ships where one 50-cal. tracer could blow them all to smithereens was classified for 50 years. Only one body was ever recovered. This is the dark side of a government that will do anything to protect itself from the public knowing what it has done on things like this; and it is one of  the reasons why we continue to expose these horror stories at VT, and why we have a corporate media blackout. Our loyalties are with the folks –first and last.

Russian S-400s going to Turkey

Now that Turkey got the S-400 deal with Russia, and with the gas pipeline construction started, we are seeing Turkey position itself with one foot in NATO and the other with Russia and Iran in terms of its strategic alignment, and Turkey’s reversal of wanting to take down the Assad regime.

Erdogan can now see his former policy has also backfired on him, with a growing Kurdish threat from not only Syria, but Iraq, with the US supporting both Kurdish groups, as it is planning to replace the soon to be eliminated ISIS with the Kurds as its proxy destabilizing force.

Turkey’s aligning with Qatar against Saudi Arabia, even expediting a defense agreement with them and moving closer to Iran, is another flashing neon light for the dismal failure of US foreign policy, solely due to its aggressive and imperialist nature. But sadly, not enough Americans seem to understand the gravity of Deep State control over our government, and the contempt with which we are treated by our Congress that drops to its knees for the Israelis.

It is a disgrace beyond description, and time is running out for us to have any chance to turn things around. The current, newly manufactured threat of the Alt-Right in Charlottesville, Virginia, shows again how easily the majority of the US public can be distracted, while all the valuables are stolen out the back doorJD ]

    I am totally with you about this, Jim.
    And I also know all about the hell of the North Atlantic. But the Paul Hamilton disaster apparently took place in the Mediterranean : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Paul_Hamilton
    Boy, what a chance to take with all those men aboard ! 500 perished in a single instant.

    Good analysis again.

    But I think that the caption under the S-400 photo is incorrect. The last update I have seen was at the end of July when the contract had been ‘agreed upon’ but discussions were still continuing on the financial aspects. The earliest estimates for actual delivery seem to be in 2018 with Turkish manufactured units later.

    “The current, newly manufactured threat of the Alt-Right in Charlottesville…”
    Mr. Dean you are right in this statement, as it’s impossible for any group right or left to assemble and not be infiltrated by government stooge agitators. i.e. the first world trade center bombing, Black Panthers in the 70’s, and many more.

    Thanks for the report, Jim. Erdogan seems to have switched sides so many times, that I can never tell what his intentions are.

    Also, I’m very sorry to hear about your mother, Jim. It must be a very tough time for you right now and I hope you’re ok, my friend.

    so then it’s pretty much game over. the US has israel, jordan, saudi Arabia, Egypt. and the Kurds, I guess. does that leave everyone else to Russia? Is Iraq still selling oil in dollars?

    it’s a great decision (or possibly, fate) for Erdogan if this is truly happening. Turkey will make a fortune transporting energy into the EU..

    any thoughts on whether Erdogan will still be alive come 2019?

    How do they plan to get the oil out and the guns in to Kurdistan? The current supply routes will be gone once Kurdistan decares “independence”.

      P.J.: Despite semi-public U.S. intentions to stay in Syria for decades, the Kurds are RWA to delay an independent Kurdish state for at least a few years — if & only if the Kurds can get peace & stability.

      Russia, Iran, Hezbollah, Iraq & Syria can ‘do’ & guarantee peace soon for the Kurds. U.S. cannot do it and does not want it, because Mideast peace & stability means NO role for U.S. in the Mideast. Even stupid stuff by Bibi & Co. will not guarantee a Mideast role for the U.S.

    Our foreign policies are so very much based on the 9/11 false narrative and yet they just keep digging a deeper hole. Worse still is the establishment controlling ours’ is wacked out more than our establishment. Mr. Dean you are honoring the memory of your mother in a very fine manner.
