      The Murder Of Qassem Soleimani Will Deter No One

      The Murder Of Qassem Soleimani Will Deter No One

      The Trump administration sees the US assassination of Qassem Soleimani as a form of deterrence not only with regards to Iran but also towards Russia, China and others. That view is wrong. The claim that the murder of Soleimani was necessary because of an “imminent threat” has been debunked by Trump himself when he tweeted that...

      Who Targeted Ukraine Airlines Flight 752? Iran Shot It Down But There May Be More to the Story

      The claim that Major General Qassem Soleimani was a “terrorist” on a mission to carry out an “imminent” attack that would kill hundreds of Americans turned out to be a lie, so why should one believe anything else relating to recent developments in Iran and Iraq? To be sure, Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 departing from Tehran’s...

      Joe Biden’s man shows the world why US policy towards Russia has completely failed

      It’s entirely possible that Joe Biden could be the next US President. If so, buckle your seatbelts because the advice he’s getting on Russia is, almost certainly, dangerously wrong. Regular readers will know of my deep scorn for “Russia Watchers” – Westerners who, as a rule, purport to have an understanding of the country beyond...

      Did Pompeo Go Off Reservation in Iraq Attack?

      I have to wonder who Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is actually loyal to. Because, the U.S. strike of Kata’ib Hizbullah forces near the Al Qaim border crossing with Syria in Iraq is a dangerous escalation there.And it’s completely at odds with Trump’s goals of wanting us out of the Middle East. The Al Qaim border crossing is a...

      Impeachment Is a Distraction: Heavily Scripted Vote Demonstrates That Democracy Really Is Dead

      Impeachment Is a Distraction: Heavily Scripted Vote Demonstrates That Democracy Really Is Dead

      Watching the impeachment “vote” was hard work. With only a few exceptions, each Congressman rose for roughly 90 seconds and provided a prearranged, almost completely scripted-along-party-lines explanation of how he or she was casting one’s ballot. After four grueling hours of hearing self-serving lies like “no one is above the law,” I was...

      By impeaching Trump, Democrats have made him more powerful than they could ever imagine

      From coast to coast, the Resistance is cheering the impeachment of President Donald Trump in the House. They shouldn’t be. For in seeking to destroy him, they have only made him more powerful, and undercut themselves. Let’s not mince words: Wednesday’s vote was the culmination of efforts that began on November 8, 2016, with...

      The Afghanistan Fiasco and the Decline and Fall of the American Military

      A devastating investigative report was published in the Washington Post on December 9th. Dubbed the “Afghanistan Papers” in a nod to the Vietnam War’s famous “Pentagon Papers,” the report relied on thousands of documents to similarly expose how the US government at the presidential level across three administrations, acting in collaboration...

      Can Recep the Magnificent Sort Out Libya?

      This title is not intended to trivialize the very serious nature of the deadly conflict in Libya; the situation is an ever-escalating humanitarian disaster, and has been since US State and NATO destroyed the country in 2011. On December 14th an air cargo transport of Belgian FN arms from Ostend was supplied to Misrata rebels by a United Arab...

      Key Takeaway from Ukraine Peace Talks in Paris is that Zelensky’s Best Friend is Putin

      Key Takeaway from Ukraine Peace Talks in Paris is that Zelensky’s Best Friend is Putin

      The Paris talks on Ukraine have enabled Putin and Zelensky to meet for the first time. But they have agreed only to kick the can down the road, to agree to disagree, while seeking progress on issues other than the war in Donbass. It would be difficult to exaggerate the weakness of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s position. He is a...

      Congress is Trump’s Co-Conspirator Against Liberty

      Imagine that President Trump spent his phone call with the Ukrainian president threatening to withhold military aid unless the Ukrainian government agreed to use the money to purchase weapons from a US manufacturer. Does anyone seriously think that foreign service professionals and deep state operatives would be so shocked and offended by...
