Middle East Digest (Mess)

Iran, China and Russia conduct war exercises

"We Cannot Be Isolated": Iran Warns At Start Of Joint Naval Drills With Russia & China

Not the three stooges

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Russia, China and Iran launched their first joint naval exercises in the Gulf of Oman on Friday (27 Dec) in a direct challenge to US influence in the Middle East. The move reflects growing co-operation between the US’s two main rivals and the Islamic republic, which is under sanctions imposed by Washington.

 

Is a new day dawning?

"US Dominance In Mideast Is Over": Iran Declares After Joint Drills With Russia & China

And also, 

China-Iran -Russia alliance ending US unilateral global hegemony

However, let us be Realistic

China just cancelled development of two new aircraft carriers that have been in the works for ten years because they have become too expensive for China's declining economy. Russia's only carrier was in a dry dock that sank, and a crane collapsed onto its flight deck causing $1.5bn in damage, and a fire burned through its controls. But since the only dry dock that can handle the carrier is sunk, there is no proper facility to repair the ship. And Iran???  Their navy relies on inflatables.....

The US is the only naval super-power.  But what does that mean in an asymmetrical war? Russian missiles can take out Air Craft Carriers from 1500KM away.  Hyper-sonic missiles travel at 27x the speed of sound. Why do you think Trump just founded the US Space Force?   However, there are others who suggest that the US is quietly winning the hypersonics race, but is that propaganda?   One conspiracy theory runs that the U.S. is giving Russia 2nd level tech in weaponry through the globalists: "The U.S. is far, far ahead of hypersonic weapons. They want America's military to be taken out in a surprise attack after giving them this tech developed by the U.S. This incident will give them the excuse needed to emerge with black budget tech to implement the New World Order. The globalists that run the world are intentionally provoking Russia so that they will attack".   Who knows?  Seems implausible to me but when you consider that Wall Street funded the Communist revolution nothing would surprise me.  Remember the Hegelian dialectical?   Action, Reaction, Solution.    Anyway, Iran et al do not need naval superiority.  All they need to do is block the straits of Hormuz and the global economy collapses.  Iran has more A2D2 missiles than America has aircraft and they would not hesitate to rain down thousands of them on Tel Aviv.  Iran's geography probably means a land battle is out of the picture.  However, if Israel America wants war, there will be war.  Zionism was an American project , inherited from England.  They have been the  foundations of the Empire  from the beginning. 

 

U.S. military conducts air strikes in Iraq and Syria

The U.S. military conducted air strikes in Iraq and Syria against the five facilities controlled by the Kataib Hezbollah militia group supposedly in response to the killing of a U.S. civilian contractor in a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base.   They are obviously sending a message to Iran (after the naval exercises with Russia and China).   The US has not been very concerned about "contractors" (mercenaries) in the past.

See here for a balanced report: After U.S. Strike On Iraqi Forces Its Troops Will (Again) Have To Leave

Will It Be War? US Airstrikes Hit Iran-Backed Militias As Pentagon Warns More Military Action Coming

 

 Centcom footage

 

The Department of Defense released footage of some of the recent strikes against Hezbollah targets - three in Iraq and and two in Syria - it carried out near the end of December. (Tech. Sgt. Joseph Park / U.S. Air Forces Central Command). This is all very exciting footage and shows US air superiority.  How bold and clever. It is all very clinical and sanitized in the air....almost like a video  game.  They do't show you what happens on the ground. They don't show you all the running and screaming. They don't show you the body parts and the blood.  Nor do they show you that 19 people were killed for one US mercenary contractor.    By the way, this attack is not in Iran....it is in Iraq (I bet those Iraqis are loving their free-dumb).

 

Now for a look on the ground:

 

 Libya enjoying post Gaddafi free-dumb

Libya is enjoying the post Gaddafi era.  Except for the death and stuff.  Now let me see if I have got this right?  It is now Turkey (and Qatar) interfering by supplying ISIS mercenaries to fight the government  forces in Libya and France and Egypt are objecting?  Didn't France help liberate Libya?  Maybe Macaroni can join the foreign legion and use his god-like Rothschild powers to defeat evil?   Somewhere in hell Gaddaffi is laughing his  ass-off (although the bayonet still hurts).

 

Is Erdogan Recycling Terrorists from Idlib, to a New Civil War in Libya?

 

Turkish Intervention in Libya – Has Ankara Split its Militants’ Ranks in Northern Syria?

 

 

 

 

On a positive note....

we will always have Afghanistan

Oh dear, all that fuss about the "Afghan papers"  that were leaked by Wiki leaks.  So, they knew that the war was "unwinnable" from the start and LIED.   The horror, the horror.  Of course they did. All these analysts wring their hands.....it was never about "winning" (doh).  As an annonomous comment puts it; "The crime of the century was the incident that precipitated the War in Afghanistan. The Taliban were supposedly ready to extradite bin Laden - IF the US provided proof of his involvement in 9/11. Was there a problem coming up with that proof?  It is clear that Bush and Cheney were chomping at the bit to go after Iraq. Not sure about that either. Iraq was making concessions according to numerous reports. They sure didn't want another war as they knew they'd get their butts kicked. Eliminating a secular regime was pure idiocy - and though Saddam Hussein wasn't the brightest bulb (though you can kind of forgive him for misunderstanding the US Ambassador over Kuwait), the US had used him for years in that proxy war with Iran.  9/11 was far too convenient for too many people. Billions in insurance payouts. Missing gold and silver, Hundreds of billions in questionable bonds cleared in the following week, plus all those investigations into financial crimes that died when evidence was destroyed - in NY and DC.


It was the excuse for never-ending wars, The Patriot Act and so much more. It wasn't a new Pearl Harbor, it was our burning of the Reichstag. But after the original fire, the resulting government lasted only 12 years - 1933 to 1945. We're still fighting in the Middle east after 18 years and are still operating under the Patriot Act with Homeland Security and all the other things brought to us by our Reichstag fire - with no end in sight. Last laugh is on the perpetrators. They may get their defacto dictatorship but they've inherited a bankrupt Empire". 

But they have always got the DRUGS.   Guard the drugs well boys, we wouldn't want them to fall into the wrong hands.

Xmas Middle East Digest

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Fa la la la la, la la la la (fa la la la la, la la la la)
'Tis the season to be jolly
Fa la la la la, la la la la (fa la la la la, la la la la)
Don we now our gay apparel (Gay??)
Fa la la la la, la la la la (fa la la la la, la la la la)

We need to prepare our Middle East Xmas shopping list before the big day.   First item on the list is our Turkey.  Can't have Xmas without a nice Turkey.

Turkey for our pièce de résistance

 

 Turkey to establish military base in Libya and Turkey’s military involvement in Libya set to grow and The Turkish Intervention In Libya Might Lead To A War With Egypt and Erdogan Threatens to Close US Incirlik Air Base if US Continue to Sanction Turkey

 

 

We wanted to invite Erdogan around for Xmas dinner but he insisted on bringing his friend so we declined. turns out he was busy elsewhere anyway.

 

 

 

Maybe we should forget Turkey and get Duck instead?

Is It Time to “Duck and Cover” in the Eastern Med?

 

Iran for some nice yellow cake

 

We must purchase a Xmas cake.  It would not be Xmas without a nice cake.  Just make sure that you don't invite the Israelis around because they hate "yellow cake".

 

 

 

I would not order my Xmas cake from Iran anyway. It turns out that cakes and sweets they have been laced with medications and poison pills. Some have accused the Mullah's of poisoning their own people (and children).....as if (LOL).   More likely the CIA backed MEK "freedom fighters". Iran Alleges "Terror" Plot As Drug-Laced Cake Scare Impacts Food Industry  and   The Geo-Politics around “Unrest” in Iran

 

Iraq for a beautiful oil bouquet

Every party needs oil.  I love the smell of burning oil on Xmas morning....it smells like yuletide victory.  Iraq will provide our Christmas oil and so will Syria.  If they object we will just "take the oil".   After all, it is better to give than receive so they can give us their oil.  Iraqi Oil for Israel? 15 Years later, new Light on the Iraq War and The Israel Lobby’s Hidden Hand in the Theft of Iraqi and Syrian Oil

 

 

 

 

Libya for our guest of honor

Santa was spotted in Libya delivering peace and goodwill but at this point "what difference does it make?" Turkey and Egypt would like to extend their thanks to Hitlary and Obama for destroying Libya and leaving 300,000 (or more) dead, so they can take over.  The trouble is that Israel is being a party pooper and ruining the fun. Libya’s Haftar had lengthy meeting with Israeli intelligence officer and Libya's Haftar 'provided with Israeli military aid following UAE-mediated meetings with Mossad agents .

The Tripoli "government" backed by Erdogan is the Muslim Brotherhood. The same Brotherhood that was recently running Egypt, and was trying (with Erdogan's help) to stage a coup in Saudi Arabia.That makes this mess more understandable. Sisi would never want a Muslim Brotherhood government on his border. But what is motivating Erdogan to move to help Tripoli now that the oil and gas grab in the eastern Med appears off?

 

Yemen our Xmas cracker

 

If we are quick we can still pull Yemen in pieces like we did with Syria but unfortunately they are successful in fighting back.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christmas Carol

Xmas would not be complete without a carol:

To prove he wasn't chicken (now that is a good one)

First we want to show some of the Orange genius' tweets before we go to the response by neoconservative Zionist senator and John McCain clone Lindsay Graham.  After which we offer a few comments.

 

An aside- Putin and the Jews

P.S. The Trump tweet above about ISIS is BS.  Russia and the SDF got rid of ISIS.  The US (at the very least) turned a blind eye. The only ones who benefited from the ISIS  chaos was the USA and Israel because they wanted to over-throw  Syria.  Sorry boys, you have been out smarted by Putin.  However, even Putin keeps the Jews onside. He knows who wields the power:

Putin invites Jews to Russia - https://www.bitchute.com/video/f3dgLDOj51yA/

Putin - "Anti-Semites always blame Jews for their own failures." - https://www.bitchute.com/video/AGQkrrOC6M9x/

However.....he did kick out the Jewish bankers and Jewish globalists:

http://Vladimir Putin to George Soros: Thank God we kicked you out of Russia

 

Putin Bans Rothschilds From Russia

 

So, Putin differentiates between ordinary Jews and their religion (many orthodox Jews do no support Zionism) and megalomaniac psychopaths.  Who would have thought?

The Law of unintended consequences?

Those who are critical of Trump conveniently forget that it was Obama that created the mess.   Moreover, what was Trump supposed to do?   Turkey is a NATO ally (LOL).   The situation is probably best summed up by some anonymous comments from zh:

"Turkey is NATO's second largest standing military, and controls the absolutely critical Bosporus straits. The alternative would be Turkey withdrawing from NATO and the Black Sea becoming a Russian lake. Geopolitics overshadows regional genocides every time.Sorry Kurds, but the writing was on the wall since at least 2017--when the Kurds in Iraq were abandoned. Should have made a deal with the Syrian government to transfer control of the land in exchange for a greater autonomy and more say in the direction of the country--as was offered several times.There's probably a last ditch chance to give the Russians a call and see if that Sweetheart deal can still be arranged before the Turkish tanks roll in. Will see in the next 48hrs I'm sure".

 

About the only thing Trump could do was stand down and it might be a good idea to "bring the boys home" (not going to happen) after all  the US has been at war for 224 years out of the 241 years it has existed!!!  Another interesting comment:

"Excellent. US troops don't end up being used as cover for a Turkish attack, allowing Russia to blunt Erdogan's assault on Syrian territory. The Kurds, meanwhile, have to do what they should have done from the start - accept Assad's offer of coming back under Syrian control/protection, in return for some autonomy. Bit by bit, Syria is becoming whole".

But this must be comment of the year:

"Mind you, I am not advocating support to the Kurd: That US support only served perceived US interests in terms of if we can't have Iraq/Syria nobody will and US will protract chaos there. Just read chapter "Introduction" of Brzezinki's "The Grand Chessboard, American Primacy & Its Geostrategic Imperatives (1997)":

Eurasia is thus the chessboard on which the struggle for global 
primacy continues to be played, and that struggle involves geostrategy—
the strategic management of geopolitical interests. It is noteworthy that
as recently as 1940 two aspirants to global power, Adolf Hitler and 
Joseph Stalin, agreed explicitly (in the secret negotiations of November
of that year) that America should be excluded from Eurasia. Each realized
that the injection of American power into Eurasia would preclude his 
ambitions regarding global domination. Each shared the assumption that
Eurasia is the center of the world and that he who controls Eurasia 
controls the world.

And more:

But in the meantime, it is imperative that no Eurasian
challenger emerges, capable of dominating Eurasia and
 thus also of challenging America.

So forget about democracy, human rights and other window dressing: it is simply about the zero sum power game called HEGEMONY. Always nice to be able to have your policies confirmed by the likes of Stalin and Hitler.
