Obama’s Sudden Visit to Saudi Arabia

...Vice President Joe Biden was to take part in the funeral of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah, but Obama cut short a day his visit to India so that he could travel to Riyadh on January 27 to pay respects to Saudi royals too... The Obama’s rush to the Arabian Peninsula was belated from point of view of ritual and premature from point of view of protocol. It displayed the Washington’s anxiety over the situation in the Middle East. The attempt to impose the US policies on the new Saudi leadership was just too obvious... Saudi Arabia, the world leading oil supplier and a bulwark of US Persian Gulf policy, happens to be in a precarious situation and Washington has a hand in it...

The Forbidden Truth: Islamic State (ISIS) Recruiter Admits Getting Funds from America

Call it one of many US dirty secrets. Washington covertly recruits, funds, arms, trains, and directs extremist Islamic State and other Takfiri terrorists. The same ones it lies about waging war on. Uses them as proxies against its adversaries.

Obama Prefers Arabia to Taj Mahal (II)

...The US desperately needs Saudi cooperation to address the crisis in Yemen... Today, however much he may respect Brzezinski as a guide and mentor on contemporary world politics («Grand Chessboard»), for Obama himself politically, the crisis in Yemen has the potential to snowball into a showdown with the Republican-dominated Congress and derail the US’ talks with Iran and wreck his entire Middle East agenda...

Obama Prefers Arabia to Taj Mahal (I)

Just hours before the US president Barack Obama took off from Washington for his three-day state visit to India beginning on Sunday, he ordered to simply chop off a poignant slice of his tour itinerary – a memorable visit to the Taj Mahal... Obama decided that he also urgently needed to be in Saudi Arabia and, therefore, once the transactional part of his India visit was over, he would head straight for Riyadh... Clearly, Obama intends to engage first hand at the very earliest the new Saudi leadership under King Salman. A criticality arises, since King Salman who is in the late seventies is known to be suffering from Alzheimer’s, and according to the Wall Street Journal, US officials do not consider him to be a strong or healthy ruler in his own right, which inevitably raises the possibility of others in the royal family coming to the forecourt in a matter of time...

New Saudi King Was Major Supporter of Al Qaeda

The new king of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud, the half-brother of King Abdullah, who died in his early 90s from complications from pneumonia, is expected to rule with a more Wahhabist-oriented religious bent... Salman’s devotion to Saudi security is hypocritical at best due to his past support for Al Qaeda, including some of the individuals implicated in the 9/11 attack on the United States. It is Salman’s involvement with financing 9/11 and other terrorists that will likely reinforce the Obama administration’s refusal to declassify 28 missing pages from the 2002 Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the intelligence failures surrounding the attack. As the then-governor of Riyadh, Salman’s name likely appears as a “big fish” in the redacted 28 pages from the Senate report...

Charlie Hebdo’s stormtroopers

...That day Paris was protesting the brutal execution of human beings in broad daylight. During the 13-year occupation of Afghanistan, France has lost 86 people, but here – only a half dozen had died over the course of two days. France was in shock - the sale of sedatives rose by 18% throughout the country. When thousands of people were dying somewhere in the Middle East or Ukraine, the French paid little notice - after all, they say, the people who live there can work it out themselves. But then the killings began in the center of Paris... The demonstration in the French capital was called a «March for Tolerance», but politicians began hiding behind this flag to play dubious games. Public opinion was diverted in such a way that the solidarity of people who were protesting terror now looked like blanket approval of the taunts made by the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists...

Russia-Iran Military Cooperation Agreement – Step Ahead to Strategic Cooperation

Russia and Iran have signed a military agreement. This is the first time an inter-governmental military cooperation agreement has been concluded in the centuries-old history of bilateral relations... It’s the first and only military cooperation agreement concluded by Iran with another country. It’s much more important for Iran than the implementation of the obsolete S-300 contract, something the US is concerned about so much. The US has not learned the lesson that Russia taught it by developing military ties with Egypt.

«Charlie Hebdo» and its Anti-Gentile Allies

In the wake of the terrorist attack against the French satirical newspaper «Charlie Hebdo,» it has become apparent that the magazine’s editorial chiefs killed in the attack on its headquarters in Paris and groups such as FEMEN and Pussy Riot are all connected in a campaign to disparage Islam and Christianity. In the aftermath of the terrorist attack, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu used the occasion of the memorial service in Paris attended by a number of world leaders to admonish France’s parliament for having recently recognized the independence of Palestine and urge France’s large Jewish population to emigrate to Israel...

Why the US is the Biggest Threat to World Peace

Like a lot of Americans, each morning in elementary and high school, I had to stand up before the U.S. flag, put my hand on my heart, and pledge allegiance to the United States of America. While it was a mindless routine for most of us, the meaning behind the ritual was clear: that the U.S. was exceptional, a beacon of liberty and justice in the world. But after considering the trail of blood, coups and bombs that continues to follow the U.S. flag wherever it flies, it’s safe to say that the U.S. is exceptional in many things; liberty and justice are not among them.

Brussels’ New Russia Sanctions Fuel for Eventual EU Bonfire

...Moreover, the leftwing Syriza government has denounced EU sanctions against Russia as baseless and has openly welcomed fraternal relations with president Vladimir Putin and Moscow. The inauguration of Alexi Tsipras as Greek prime minister also this week marks the election of the first EU government that is explicitly anti-austerity and vowing to repudiate the authority of Brussels. The European Council, led by former Polish president Donald Tusk, decided to extend travel bans and asset freezes on a list of Russia officials allegedly over the violence in Ukraine...
