Ankara - Riyadh: A Geopolitical Fault Line (I)

...In some regional conflicts (primarily in Syria), Ankara and Riyadh are tactical allies, but since both countries aspire to regional leadership, the natural result is an intensification of their rivalry and discord. This process is accompanied by, on one hand, both countries’ attempts to win over the United States, and on the other, by the search for new allies, which can include Russia...

Israel’s Future Vision of the Middle East

...The Saudis claim nine other nations, including Egypt, Morocco, Pakistan, the Gulf states, and Sudan, have joined its military campaign in Yemen against the Shi’a Houthis. The Saudis have called their assault in Yemen Operation DECISIVE STORM, which sounds much like America’s Operation DESERT STORM against Saddam Hussein in 1991. The Houthis, backed by Iran and Lebanese Hezbollah, succeeded in driving out the pro-Saudi and pro-U.S. Yemeni government from Sana’a, Taiz, and Aden. Behind Saudi Arabia’s DECISIVE STORM is the hidden hand of Israel...

Manufacturing Dissent - Paul Craig Roberts

Professor Michel Chossudovsky is the author of many important books. His latest is The Globalization of War: America’s Long War Against Humanity. Chossudovsky shows that Washington has globalized war while the US president is presented as a global peace-maker, complete with the Nobel Peace Prize. Washington has military deployed in 150 countries, has the world divided up into six US military commands and has a global strike plan that includes space operations. Nuclear weapons are part of the global strike plan and have been elevated for use in a pre-emptive first strike, a dangerous departure from their Cold War role.

Hypocrisy Empire (IV)

The Middle East is a good example of Washington’s hypocrisy. The US-inspired «Arab Spring» hit the region like a sand storm resulting in hundreds of thousands of deaths... Nobody rushes to take on the responsibility for staging the recent great upheavals, though it’s easy enough to see who was behind those events - the National Security Council (NSC) chaired by President. Since August 2010 the NSC worked out a number of political directives signed by President to prompt the «democratization» of the region. The presidential policy directive (PPD) №11 was followed by PPD №13 to address the issue of «Political and Economic Reform in the Middle East and North Africa»...

Yemen Beware as it Threatens US-backed Order

The crisis in Yemen is the latest manifestation of the old order desperately trying to cling on to a dwindling power base. That old order has been backed by the United States and its allies among the Persian Gulf Arab dictatorships as a bulwark against a popular uprising that could lead to democratisation in the poorest Middle Eastern country. If such an outcome were to succeed, the repercussions for the autocratic Gulf monarchies would be deeply destabilising. Saudi Arabia, which shares a southern border with Yemen, is the primary concern for this spreading «instability»...

Will «Big Six» Lose Historic Opportunity to Close Iran’s Nuclear Dossier?

The next round of talks on Iran’s nuclear program is scheduled on March 26 - the day US State Secretary John Kerry is to meet his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif in Lausanne, Switzerland. The chances for reaching an agreement till the end of March are bleak... On March 23, 367 House lawmakers signed an open letter to President Barack Obama warning him that any nuclear deal with Tehran will effectively require congressional approval for implementation to prevent any chance of going nuclear... America wants the regional influence of Iran weakened. Actually, that’s what Americans have been doing since the revolution in Iran took place 36 years ago. Israel and Saudi Arabia remain to be the leading regional allies of United States. They represent the main forces opposing the agreement between P5+1 and Tehran. With sanctions lifted and international isolation ended, Iran becomes a regional superpower...

Netanyahu to Stay in Office

...Even before the final results were known, Netanyahu declared victory and pledged to form a new government quickly... The victory means the fourth term for him and this is the first time he was opposed by the United States. The mutual aversion between Israeli Prime Minister and US President has gone far enough to make Obama send a team of spin doctors to hinder the Netanyahu’s coming to power. The White House has not forgotten that Bibi did his best to make Obama a one-term president...

The Loser in the Israeli Elections Is... Barack Obama

Benjamin Netanyahu won a fairly convincing victory in the Israeli elections held on 17 March, although it was probably the most difficult of his political career, while the biggest loser in the elections was... Barack Obama. There are many moments that the Israelis will remember about these elections, but first and foremost they will remember the unprecedented degree of US intervention in the affairs of their country...

‘Islamic State’ as a Western Phenomenon?

No matter how one attempts to wrangle with the so-called ‘Islamic State’ (IS) rise in Iraq and Syria, desperately seeking any political or other context that would validate the movement as an explainable historical circumstance, things refuse to add up.

Netanyahu Charges that Scandinavia Is Part of Conspiracy against Him: The Opposite Is True

In the final countdown to the Israeli election, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu charged that there was a vast left-wing international conspiracy against him with the primary perpetrators being the Scandinavian countries... However comical Netanyahu’s statements about Scandinavia serving as the center of anti-Likud worldwide operations, it is true that Israel has, for decades, infiltrated Scandinavian political parties, parliaments, newspapers, and intelligence agencies to promote Israel’s cause diplomatically and in the media...
