Iran: Netanyahu, MBS, and Bolton are the Team B culprits pushing Trump to war with Iran

Published 2019-07-08 22:30:38 by Joaquin Flores in Headline-News, Iran, Israel, Mena, United-States

TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif accused the so-called “team B” (according to Tehran’s version, those in favor of the war against the Islamic Republic) of having “persuaded (US President) Donald Trump to kill the nuclear deal with Iran. The “nuclear deal” means the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPOA) – an agreement signed in July 2015 between Tehran and the six world powers, from which the United States unilaterally left in May last year. “Team B caught Trump on the stupidity of the fact that killing a the JCPOA (supposedly) could help him (the US president) make a better… Continue ->

The Only Strategic Rationale for America’s Involvement in Syria Finally Revealed

Published 2019-07-08 21:47:12 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Israel, Mena, Opinions, Politics, United-States

By Elias Samo for SCF – “Washington lacks a clear strategy in Syria,“ those were the recent words of Robert Ford, the last American ambassador to Syria who served prior to and during the first few years of the Syrian uprising from 2010 to 2014. A man of Ford’s intricate knowledge of the Syrian-American political dynamic is surely knowledgeable enough to assess America’s policy towards Syria. He goes on to say, “It is hard to explain the fundamental American mission in Syria… Is it to fight Daesh? Or is it to help promote a Kurdish autonomous district in Northeastern Syria…… Continue ->

Russia BANS flights from Georgia: Biden Institute predicts Georgia will be 100% owned by FSB agents

The director of Pennsylvania University’s Biden Center, expert on Georgia, having spent three days in country, may be accusing Russia of what the US is up to: As for the Biden Institute, FRN readers will recall that during Joe Biden’s vice presidency he was, in effect, the US Viceroy for Ukraine. As for the rioting, we are not alone in seeing an attempted Maidan parallel, encircling Russia being overt US policy. The excuse for the riots in Tbilisi was the speech of Sergei Gavrilov, Communist Party MP of the Russian Duma, addressing the Interparliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy (IAO), a body set… Continue ->

Published 2019-07-08 18:40:23 by Joaquin Flores in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Mena, Opinions, Syria, United-Kingdom, United-States

By Finian Cunningham –  The seizure of two million barrels of Iranian crude oil by British commandos is a blatant act of piracy aimed at provoking Iran into war. Also, confiscation of the supertanker in Britain’s Mediterranean territory of Gibraltar seems aimed at sinking the last chances for the international nuclear accord being upheld. Iran has already warned it will suspend parts of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) by increasing stockpiles of enriched uranium, particularly because Tehran has rebuked the European Union for not doing enough to implement the 2015 accord and normalize trade with Iran, circumventing US… Continue ->

SAMURI: Is Trump’s anti-war rhetoric only for ratings at home?

Published 2019-07-08 17:05:28 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Mena, Opinions, Syria, United-States

By Firas Samuri – Not so long ago the U.S. President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of the American forces from Afghanistan. Earlier, he made the same promises on Syria, but the U.S. troops are still in the country committing military crimes against the locals. That why we should not expect a breakthrough on this issue. Obviously, by doing so the U.S. leader intends to get his ratings up in the lead-up to the elections. Could Trump’s tricks boost his ratings and settle the Syrian conflict? Recently the U.S. President Donald Trump formally launched his 2020 re-election campaign in front… Continue ->

Martin Sieff for SCF – July 7, 2019 – The wave of wishful thinking articles, including some by friends of mine whose judgment I usually respect was entirely wrong. President Donald Trump has not fired John Bolton for the failed fiasco of his latest inept attempt to topple the legitimate democratically-elected government of Venezuela: At least not yet. Bolton remains National Security Advisor of the United States with his fingerprints all over the latest “incident” of limpet mine attacks on the two oil tankers in the Persian Gulf.

DUGIN: The Deconstruction of Democracy

Published 2019-07-08 15:53:01 by Joaquin Flores in Democracy, Eurasia, Headline-News, Opinions, Politics, Propaganda, Russia

For Platonists, according to Dugin, democracy is a false doctrine; it is built on a world that doesn’t exist and a society that cannot exist. The following is an excerpt from Chapter 2 of Political Platonism: The Philosophy of Politics, by Alexander Dugin. The Concept of “Democracy” Is Not Neutral and Not Self-Evident Democracy today cannot be discussed objectively. It is not a neutral concept: behind “democracy,” as a political regime and corresponding value system, stands the West, Europe and the USA. For them “democracy” is a form of secular cult or a tool of political dogmatics, thus, to be fully accepted into… Continue ->

MAJOR: Aging Sky Junk – U.S Air Force Rejects Proposal to Restart F-22 Raptor production

Published 2019-07-08 14:45:10 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Defense, Headline-News, United-States

PENTAGON, USA – The United States Air Force published a report, according to which F-22 Raptor has become an aging design and that, sooner than later, it will not be competitive against evolving threats as nations like Russia and China continue to invest in new state-of-the-art technologies. A 2017 Pentagon report to Congress detailing production retail costs for Lockheed Martin’s F-22 Raptor show that reviving the powerful stealth air superiority fighter would be prohibitively expensive. Moreover, it would take so long to reconstitute the production line that it would not be until the mid to late 2020s before the first… Continue ->

BELGRADE – Serbian President Alexander Vucic claimed this morning, July 8th, that an agreement with the Kosovo Albanians would be an important achievement for the future of Serbian citizens, but that it is impossible to reach an agreement with those who say that “you must recognize us within the existing borders.” “I have always said that the Serbs and Albanians must agree on this. If we were left alone, maybe we would have reached an agreement,” Vucic said on RTS television.
