Punishment Of Innocents by Sanctions

In June 2015 some 1,200 people died from the effects of an extreme heatwave in Pakistan. Temperatures reached 44 degrees Centigrade (111o Fahrenheit) and the scenes of suffering were heart-rending. As CNN reported : «At the Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre in Sindh’s capital, Karachi, heat stroke victims are wheeled in daily, swelling the numbers well beyond capacity. The overwhelmed doctors and nurses do what they can... Family members tend to many of the patients, wiping their brows with sponges and keeping them cool with wet, grimy towels... At the Edhi morgue, the largest still operating in Karachi, the picture is even more dismal... Daily power outages mean the cold storage unit that houses bodies is hot and sticky. The dead, it seems, are denied the dignity they deserve»...

Offending Iran’s Dignity

America’s neocons are back at work demeaning an agreement to constrain Iran’s nuclear program – to keep alive the neocon dream of bomb-bomb-bombing Iran. And the insults are having an effect by offending Iran’s dignity and creating friction among the negotiators, writes Trita Parsi.

Nuke Deal Inches Ahead as US-Iran Play Information War

So today is not D-Day. No landing in post-Wall of Mistrust territory. A nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 won’t be clinched today – for a number of very complex reasons, way beyond the vicious media information war; not least finding the absolute, exact wording in every line of 85 pages of text

The Saudi Finger-pointing at Iran

Parroting Israel and Saudi Arabia, much of Official Washington blames Iran for the current instability across the Mideast, but that may rank as one of the most inside-out explanations imaginable, as Flynt and Hillary Mann Leverett explain.

Obama Meets Arab Allies at Camp David to Address Middle East Security

...The White House continues to call Iran a state sponsoring terrorism, supporting the Syrian regime and violating human rights etc. Obama says the sanctions will be in force even if a nuclear deal is reached in case Iran does not change its reckless behavior. The US Middle East policy appears to be increasingly illogical and dangerous, including not Iran only but Israel as well... The progress on nuclear talks could become a factor of regional stabilization but the policy of Obama administration may turn it into a source of future conflicts.

Saudi Option of Yemen War to Blow Iran P5+1 Deal

The Obama White House pulled out all the stops this week to indulge the «insecure» Persian Gulf Arab oil sheikhdoms. The assurances lavished by President Obama on his guests – with meetings in the Oval Office and later at the presidential retreat Camp David – may assuage Arab feelings of insecurity in the short-term... But there seems little doubt that the bitter relations that have been festering between the Saudi-led GCC and its main Western patron in Washington will continue to deepen and corrode the «extraordinary relationship» that Obama tried to talk up...

Yemen’s Mystery and Map of Lt. Col. Peters

The events in Yemen and other parts of Middle East bring back to memory the somewhat forgotten maps of Lt.Col. Peters. In 2006 Ralph Peters, a retired military intelligence officer, published an article in Armed Forces Journal called Blood Borders... Winding his piece up he wrote, «If the borders of the greater Middle East cannot be amended to reflect the natural ties of blood and faith, we may take it as an article of faith that a portion of the bloodshed in the region will continue to be our own»... No need to retell the whole article. The gist of it is the need to remap the «Greater Middle East» starting from Iran and Saudi Arabia...

Bahrain Risks to Follow Yemen

...The Crown Prince of Bahrain, Sheikh Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa, the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain, blasted U.S. foreign policy in an interview and warned that its «schizophrenia» will lead the Arab world to ally with Russia. Using unusually hostile language, al-Khalifa said American policy is «transient and reactive», and «America seems to suffer from schizophrenia when it deals with the Arab world. He said the US foreign policy depends on forthcoming election in two years and there is no long-term policy. He expressed doubts that that Arab states could rely on the West. Bahrain does not trust Obama and strives to get US Congress backing...

Yemen: Prospects Uncertain

Rich Saudi lobby enjoys strong position in the United States. Some believe it to be more influential than the Jewish one. On March 9, 47 US Republican senators signed an open letter to the Iranian leadership addressed to «leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran» declaring that any agreement without legislative approval could be reversed by the next president «with the stroke of a pen»... True, lifting sanctions is an issue of paramount importance for Iran. For the sake of reaching this goal Tehran is ready to make concessions when it comes to other issues, like Yemen, for instance. But things look different when you are told directly that the nuclear deal has no chance to be ratified...

BOKO HARAM: its transformation into a transnational terrorist corporation

In recent years we have seen many radical organizations become internationalized - factions that once confined their operations to within defined state boundaries have been converted into transnational terrorist corporations. Of course, certainly not all radical organizations make this transition. Some, such as the Taliban, remain «domestic» entities. However, many are «suddenly» able to easily transcend the national boundaries of not only neighboring countries, but whole regions that they are able to overtake. This was the sort of transformation made by al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. We are now watching Boko Haram (BH) undergo a similar metamorphosis into a transnational «terrorist corporation»...
