WASHINGTON, D.C. – US opposition reportedly blocked the UN Security Council from backing the agreement between Russia and Turkey for a ceasefire in Syria’s Idlib province. Friday’s meeting was requested by Russia after President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan hammered out a ceasefire after a six-hour meeting in Moscow the day before. However, “one of the parties” (with permanent UNSC seat) blocked the Security Council statement that would have expressed support for the agreement, Russian envoy to the UN Vassily Nebenzia said. Though Nebenzya refrained from naming the culprit, both AFP and TASS reported that it… Continue ->

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The US decided to scrap its plans to buy two more batteries of the Israeli-made Iron Dome missile system due to concerns about its compatibility with existing American technologies. The main problem has been Israel’s refusal to provide the US military with Iron Dome’s source code which is needed to integrate the system into American air defenses, according to the army, PressTV reported.   General Mike Murray, head of United States Army Futures Command, said on Thursday that, based on some cyber vulnerabilities and operational challenges, the army failed to integrate elements of Iron Dome air-defense system with… Continue ->

Donbass and Syria – A Perfect Storm Approaching?

Published 2020-03-07 12:49:30 by Russell Bentley in Anglo-5, China, Donbass, Eurasia, Headline-News, Iran, Mena, Nato, Politics, Russia, South-Korea, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, United-States

AS GOES SYRIA, SO GOES DONBASS. AS GOES DONBASS, SO GOES THE WORLD. When Recep Erdogan recently met with Volodymyr Zelensky in Kiev, aping the words of Ukraine’s nazi collaborators, with a shout of “Slava Ukraine!”, it may well have seemed just another dog and clown show, put on by two US/NATO lackeys who are among the least trusted or respected national leaders on Earth. But this political theater may well have some serious and unpleasant portents for the near future. Erdogan’s recent criminal foray into Syria marks a major escalation as well as a further betrayal of treaty agreements… Continue ->

By Serkan Aydin – Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Islamist-driven approach to foreign policy  has been abortive and perpetuates to undermine the stability of the region. Now in utter isolation, Turkey has antagonistic bonds with the United States and Russia, as well as the Arab world and Europe. It is endeavouring to assure its crucial security interests against this difficult backdrop.   Qatar, Pakistan or Azerbaijan seem to be the only close allies yet provide Turkey with no strategic value that could empower its hand against its adversaries.   Is Erdogan’s sole option playing the United States and Russia against one another? Clearly he… Continue ->
