As Turkey’s economy continues to tumble, it no longer has the capabilities to operate on multiple fronts at the same time.
Jim W. Dean - Wanting to discuss what is the legal basis for us using proxy terrorism as a geopolitical tool should be a big enough scandal to go to the top of the list of US security issues.
Jim W. Dean - Here we are again playing 'Pin the Tail on the Donkey' children's blame game on a 20 year war with three presidents, where the Trumpers' goal is to stick Biden with the turd sandwich.
In 2014, Vice President Joe Biden told a Harvard audience that Turkey and others had been giving “hundreds of millions of dollars [and] tons of weapons” to Al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda, and ISIS
Jim W. Dean - You cannot impose non chaotic methods on a chaotic withdrawal, one brought on by a collapse that happened so fast as to be a surprise to the Taliban.

A senior NATO officer has raised the alarm about what he claimed to be China's "shocking" military development and growing diplomatic influence, as the US-led military alliance seeks to adopt a tougher stance against Beijing.
The sources said the United States keeps insisting on its excessive demands and the imposition of new nuclear commitments on Iran.
The US and Israel have F-35 deliverable nuclear weapons, and insist no one should be able to have a defense against them, as that would be a 'threat'.
n an interview with The Associated Press just weeks before the last U.S. and NATO troops leave Afghanistan, ending their ‘forever war,’ Hamid Karzai said extremism is at its “highest point” and the departing troops are leaving behind a disaster.
At a hearing on Capitol Hill yesterday, U.S. Air Force General Glen VanHerck, who is head of U.S. Northern Command and the U.S.-Canadian North American Aerospace Defense Command, told lawmakers that Russia's growing fleet of nuclear-powered Yasen class guided-missile submarines, in particular, are nearly on par with U.S. Navy types in terms of quietness and will present a persistent threat to the American homeland unlike any before within five years.
While the trouble brought by the Trump administration to the US-EU relations was expected to disappear on its own after Trump’s defeat in 2020 US presidential elections, this has not happened even after 5 months of Biden’s inauguration as the US president.
When the US president Joe Biden recently waived sanctions on the company overseeing the Nord Stream 2 project, it came as a surprise to many.
Jim W. Dean - If Biden wanted to play the great historic president, he could have called for an international commission to investigate ALL bioweapons lab work.
President Biden's plan to win back the trust of the global community was not off to a good start, because at the end of February, he ordered an air strike near the Iraqi-Syrian border that could aid efforts of terrorists from DAESH.
Jim W. Dean - The game of 'liars poker' between the US and Turkey continues to roll on with no change in course despite all the hype.
Pompeo has accused Turkey of undermining NATO, and is not the only one within the current US “deep state” who think Turkey has gone rogue.
One example, on December 4, Russian border guards prevented an attempt by 3 armed men to cross the Russian border from Ukraine. The gunmen resisted detention and opened fire on Russian personnel. As a result of the armed clash, one of the gunmen was eliminated, while two others fled back to Ukraine.
David Boyajian - Just days ago, in our nation’s capital, Azeri demonstrators chanted “jihad, jihad, jihad” and flashed the hand signal of Turkey’s homicidal, neo-fascist Grey Wolves.
Jim W. Dean - Along with the US, NATO acts as a palace guard for the current Kabul regime, which has always needed foreign protection.
Instead of choosing to echo Pompeo’s idea of building a ‘global coalition’ against China, the European Council has encouraged China to “assume greater responsibility in dealing with global challenges.”
NATO is now only an alliance on paper, as members are on the verge of war with each other, with little NATO 'brotherhood'. The newest bad boy on the block is neo-Ottoman strong man, Erdogan. NEO's Kulikov gives us an analysis. Does Washington intend to benefit from conflict among NATO members?
Jim W. Dean - I will close my missive with the old saying, "With friends like this, who needs enemies?"
Jim W. Dean - This news shows how practical Iran is with its open arms to Azerbaijan, despite its having had a long and close relationship with Israel.
"Therefore, today in front of this hall of the most beautiful, advanced, patriotic people I want to appeal to the peoples of Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine — stop your crazy politicians, don't let war break out!” - Belarus President
Jim W. Dean - The good news is the 'live fire' drills, another Erdogan showmanship ploy, will probably not go on and save its military from wasting ammunition.
The European Union has threatened to slap sanctions on Turkey if it continues with what Brussels has called "illegal drilling". Greece launched naval drills this week in the area where Turkey is prospecting for oil and gas, and France, Cyprus, and Italy said they would join Athens.
Turkey is in Libya with both feet, one on the sand and one in the Mediterranean where it is claiming vast oil and gas drilling rights, with warships currently sailing with exploration drilling rigs. Erdogan asked no one's permission, and NATO has been silent on the issue.
The Turkish leader needs an economic windfall or a war, or he’s going to be ousted.
Jim W. Dean - Putin has so far responded to all US aggressive moves. I can't see this current move going unchallenged when it is a red line.
Jim W. Dean - Iran immediately saw its front line as the Syrian border with Israel, and then the Iraqi border with Syria, when the US-backed ISIS terrorists took over Deir Ezzor.
Jim W. Dean - China will play along, getting some practice in "conflict drills" for its own growing navy, which will take a decade of work to have a credible defense.
European nations need to carry more of the burden of defense spending, Merkel said, because they cannot assume that the US will be there to protect them.
A little over 20 years ago, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) conducted a military exercise that involved a “hypothetical scenario” of hijacked planes flying into both the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.
Is This How They Plan To Take Us All Out?
Jim W. Dean - With tomorrow Erdogan's the big pow wow day with Putin in Moscow to see if he can hustle a ceasefire, the Syrians are regaining territory.
When is the last time Turkey did anything for NATO that did not serve its own interests, like wanting NATO to fight the Russians and SAA?
