It comes as no surprise that the EU3 has bailed on the JCPOA and, as usual, claim they are not. That begs the question of why put their shame on parade by making this statement now?
The dust is settling on what really happened during the Iran response to the Soleimani assassination. We had thought that the US would refrain from falling back on its standard "We will tell you whatever version that we choose as to what happened."
Introduction: Trump tells us no one was killed. If someone was, the US would lie about it but after hearing the deafening explosions at...
Murder of Soleimani and the destruction of the al-Asad Air Base along with the U.S. half of the Erbil International Airport can be attributed to an "American" "contractor's" death.
Jim W. Dean - I can already smell regret in the air from Washington, as the leaks are coming out even on the veracity of the intercept "evidence" that Pompeo carried water for.

“For me, a former enlisted Marine rifleman who served in Afghanistan in 2008, 2009 and 2010, watching the national-security intelligentsia reckon with their careers, and where they contributed to the quagmire in which the United States now finds itself, reminds me of a Pentagon press-conference transcript from March 2010."
Jim W. Dean - We finally see at a top down attempt to impose discipline on the heavily infiltrated protest movement, which is a nightmare for security to deal with as you have major bad apples mixed in with peaceful protesters.
Jim W. Dean - Iraqi 'protesters' stab a teen boy to death for complaining about their noise in his neighborhood, and then the mob cuts the dead kid's throat and lynches his corpse for a 1000-man crowd so they could video.

Now that President Putin has committed the Russian military to supporting the legitimate government of Syria, he and his country are now being targeted by the same diabolical forces, and for the identical reasons.
ISIS leaders, formerly imprisoned in Syria, were "sprung" by private military special operations groups and are forming a new base of operations that will have strong ties to the powerful Israeli military and intelligence clandestine group inside the Kurdish region of Iraq. Financing it will be stolen Syrian oil....
Jim W. Dean - This PressTV story is already updated by Al-Jazeera, with the Iraqi defense minister stating that US troops will be transiting either to Kuwait, Qatar or the US within a month.
Jim W. Dean - Once the troops returning from Syria get to their main base in Iraq, is the Iraqi military going to get ID's and photos on them and pass out trackable bar-coded wrist bands.
Jim W. Dean - I suspect that many of these prisoners are going to end up inside the Houthi forces in a strange twist of events.
Another concept the West frequently invokes is the so-called 'rules-based order.' However, the 'rules' in question are being invented by the Western politicians themselves and ‘selectively’ applied to serve their own needs, using this trick to ‘usurp the decision-making process’ from others
The commander of Hashd Al-Sha’abi (var. Popular Mobilization Units), Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandis, accused the U.S. of moving Israeli drones to Azerbaijan to target Iraq and Iran.
Jim W. Dean - Some might wonder if the US let Israel send in one of its F-35s or drones to the US base so the US military could say truthfully that it did not attack the PMF weapons warehouse in Baghdad.
Is Ann Coulter going to start refunding the very people who plunked down the money to buy Never Trust a Liberal and other books that promote perpetual wars in the Middle East? Or is she going to apologize to America and much of the Middle East for promoting perpetual wars for nearly ten years?
"Only in foreign policy circles do people say things that stupid... Ill-advised wars are like doing cocaine."
Jim W. Dean - This is a major development, showing once again that US aggression and intimidation with its forward leaning military deployments and threats are pushing countries to form new defense coalitions.
New World Order agents have a history of summoning false flag operations in order to beat the war drum. The war against Iran is no different.
Since World War II, virtually all of the military conflicts in which the U.S. has been involved in the Middle East have been at the behest of Israel. For all intents and purposes, foreign policy makers of America’s federal government—from both major parties—are little more than lap dogs for the Zionist State of Israel.
Would it be possible for a very high-ranking U.S. military officer to develop the same critical dissident view of United States foreign policy practices, tactics, and especially, the multi-faceted brutal nonstop war on humankind, ultimately including its own helpless people at home, that I have?
Iraq’s parliamentary summit has brought together the country’s neighbors in what has been described as “a display of rare regional unity”, further sidelining a US initiative to form an “Arab NATO”.
The US decision to invade Iraq and unintentionally deliver it gift-wrapped to the Axis of Resistance was one of the worst strategic blunders in history. (It worked OK for Israel though...so far.)
Blood suckers perpetually said Saddam was corrupt, therefore they had to destroy Iraq. Gaddafi was corrupt, therefore they had to kill him mercilessly. Bashar al-Assad is corrupt and was killing his own people, therefore the United States had to send thousands upon thousands of soldiers to support the rebels/terrorists. Thanks to Russia, Assad is still in power and is serving his country.

Jim W. Dean - The US announcement of pulling its troops out of Syria immediately caught many of us by surprise who were thinking this would probably happen in January
How many of us have really examined the historical “truths” in our textbooks and presented on television about the Federal Reserve Board, the World Wars, Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy Assassinations and that of Martin Luther King? Have you ever heard of Deir Yassin? The Lavon Affair? The USS Liberty Attack? The Pollard Spy Case? The real story on 9-11?
An “active allegiance to Satan” is the political ideology of the United States, Saudi Arabia, and indeed Israel, specifically when it comes to dealing with important issues in the Middle East. The Jamal Khashoggi debacle again makes this very clear. The recent war in Yemen is another example.
Tim Anderson of the University of Sydney: Netanyahu “is a dangerous man and he is creating, like his mentor in the US, pretexts, which were a bit of credibility, pretexts that he will use and has used for almost arbitrary attacks.”
