Pin-Prick Air Strikes Won’t Defeat Islamic State

The US fight against Sunni terrorist group called the Islamic State may turn into a full-fledged war... Republican Senator John McCain, a ranking member of the Senate, said the strategy was failing. «They're winning and we're not,» McCain said on CNN. «Pin-prick bombing is not working». McCain is right – the impact is limited, some military express skepticism over the efficiency of the ongoing air campaign... No matter massive air strikes delivered by the US-led coalition, the Islamic State keeps on expanding the territory under its control in Iraq and Syria...

Islamic State Created by United States

The battle flag is raised and waving. The United States has launched an air campaign against the Islamic State delivering strikes in Iraq and Syria. It is done without the permission of the Syrian government and the United Nations Security Council... The US put up with the Islamic State till it had been fighting the Syrian government forces. It was declared war on as soon as its armed formations invaded Iraq and proclaimed the creation of a new state... No doubt Syria will remain the main target for the United States as an element of the policy aimed at weakening Russia. The Islamic State was created by the United States; the goal is to generate a powerful destabilizing wave striking deeper into Eurasia. Now he US is clandestinely preparing the overthrow of Bashar Assad. That’s how many countries perceive the unilateral actions of Washington against the Islamic State...

US Pushes Iran To Red Line

Iranand six world powers (Russia, the United States, Great Britain, France, Germany and China) began an expert-level meeting about Tehran's nuclear program on Thursday, September 19, part of efforts to reach an agreement by late July on how to resolve a decade-old dispute that has stirred fears of a Middle East war. SeyedAbbas Araghchi, the Iranian Deputy Ministerfor Foreign Affairs, said before the talks kicked off that those serious differences remained but Iran hoped to achieve positive results with the 5+1 group and especially talking with the United States, Russia and China. There are clear signs that Iran is not prepared to pay any price. The respect for Iran’s rights and achievements of Iranian scholars is a red line not to be crossed.

Syria or Islamic State: Which One is Obama’s Target?

The Iran’s views on what is happening in Iraq largely coincide with the Russia’s position.  Iran accused the United States on Saturday of seeking to "topple the legitimate regime" of Bashar al-Assad in Syria under the pretext of fighting against Islamic State (IS) militants. The speaker of parliament, Ali Larijani, warned the United States against launching strikes against Iran's ally Syria. "The United States is playing with fire in the region and must know that it cannot attack Syria on the pretext of fighting against the Islamic State," he said. The secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani emphasized that Washington was "trying to divert the eyes of the world from its pivotal role in supporting and equipping the terrorists in Syria in a bid to topple the legitimate regime." "On the pretext of fighting terrorism, the United States want to pursue their unilateral policies and violate the sovereignty of states," Shamkhani said.

Poroshenko, Obama Sailing in Same Boat?

Barack Obama had a phone conversation with Petro Poroshenko, the President of civil war-torn Ukraine. He assured him that the United States will lend a helping hand. «We are sailing in the same boat», he said. Looks like a boat is too small for Kiev, it would prefer it to be a cruiser size ship or even an aircraft carrier. Poroshenko told CNN on July 21 that he wants Ukraine to become MNNA (Major Non-NATO Ally) to bring it under the US military «umbrella» without the participation in the North Atlantic Alliance... Washington is happy about the fact that a number of former Soviet republics are motivated to side with the United States in its confrontation with Russia. But there are reasonable people who doubt the US Ukraine policy could be a success after the failures in Iraq, Afghanistan, during the Arab Spring, including Syria.

Obama Makes Confrontation with Russia Reach Point of No Return

The US miserable failure to come up with clear-cut assessment concerning the Malaysian Boeing, the aggressiveness and cynicism of American propaganda against Russia – it all makes President Obama deteriorate the relationship with Moscow to the point of no return. His actions have nothing to do with common sense. Ralph Peters is a foreign policy analyst for Fox News. Speaking to Megyn Kelly July 21 night he said President Obama is scared of Vladimir Putin... Locked in the Oval office like in a bunker, he rarely makes public appearances and prefers to communicate with other world leaders by phone. In his relationship with his Russian counterpart he does not do even that. He has not discussed the Malaysian airliner tragedy with Putin at all, not a single time. The wish for demonstrative muscle flexing has given place to fear of public failure...

Forget about Compromises, it’s Capitulation that US Wants from Iran

July 20 did not happen to be the date of Iran’s nuclear problem’s final settlement. The Iran’s talks with the «big 6» (5 United Nations Security Council members and Germany) are prolonged till November 24... The break itself does not solve any problems. A year will have passed since the parties adopted in Geneva a joint plan of action to guarantee that the Iranian nuclear program is used only for peaceful purposes in exchange for lifting international sanctions from the Islamic Republic. But the stances may drastically change. The talks may end up without any result... Nothing new in the US foreign policy thinking. If there is a dialogue, then it is conducted from the position of strength, direct dictate and threats. The widely publicized diplomatic efforts of President Obama aimed at putting an end to confrontation with Tehran still pursue the very same goal – it’s nor a compromise that is expected from Tehran, but rather complete capitulation.

The US Trident in Iraq

Washington is currently trying to work out what to do with Iraq. Condoleezza Rice once promised to transform the US-occupied Arab country into a «torch of democracy». And now Joe Biden is once again promising the Iraqi people democracy, but no longer for all and no longer throughout the whole country, just in parts. Sunnis from Isis are promising their own kind of democracy, and they have already shown exactly how it will be: either join them or die. For Iraqi Shiites, meanwhile, it would be more democratic to overthrow their leader and select a new American protege. For the Kurds, it would be abandoning federalism and adherence to the constitution of a unified state. Thus, the US policy regarding Iraq has the feeling of a trident...

Iraq Partition, US Way

Iraq was the first phase of the US Greater Middle East plan being shaped on the world map. Even before the 2003 invasion, Washington wanted to partition the country into three parts: Sunni, Shia and Kurdish. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (alternatively translated as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, abbreviated ISIL, ISIS) offensive to capture a large part of Iraqi land is nothing else but part of this plan. Speaking formally the White House calls on the Kurds not to sever ties with Baghdad and promises military aid to the Shiite – dominated al-Maliki government. The United States also talks about the possibility of joining efforts with Iran to counter the terrorists, but in practice it sticks to the policy of instigating chaos to make Iraq a divided state...

President Obama Faces Iraqi Conundrum

Obama has nothing to be proud of when it comes to his Middle East policy. One failure after another everywhere you look, it starts to get really eerie. With Libya, Egypt, Syria failures behind, Iraq adds to the list. The US has always sided with those who started unrest while Saudi Arabia was pouring fuel of fire pursuing the dream of using terrorists as a tool for turning the Arab world into the Wahhabi safe haven. The Wahhabi formations used the US support while operating in Syria. Now they are back to Iraq to capture a major part of the territory. As Dick Cheney admitted the United States gave the Middle East away to terrorists who can do as they please and impose their ways on others to the heart’s content…

Kiev Elections Can’t Sanitise State of Mob Rule

The Kiev regime’s parliamentary elections this weekend are set to go ahead amid an atmosphere of rampant political street violence and intimidation – and that’s not in the war-torn eastern part of Ukraine. The parliamentary elections were called in June by the then elected President Petro Poroshenko as a way of legitimising the illegal coup against the Ukrainian government that occurred four months previously with the support of the American Central Intelligence Agency... In the paraphrased words of Abraham Lincoln, no electoral process can sanitise the glaring fact of Kiev’s rule of the mob, by the mob, for the mob.
