SOMEBODY is glad to be in the good 'ol US of A.
Wednesday 9 May:
Missiles are flying in the Middle East yet the world is in the safest moment of the last 65 years.
How is this seeming contradiction possible? Surely this take must be wrong. Every
nation in the world is united against the Trump foreign policy agenda, right? Then again, there does seem to be little real pushback.
Other than the JCPOA (Iran nuclear treaty) being tossed on the dustbin of history, right?
More on that later.
Suffice to say all is most assuredly not as it seems. As President Trump awaits the return of Sec State Mike Pompeo with his three 'guests' at Andrew AFB Iran and Israel are shooting missiles at each other.
Attention Israel haters:
Iran's attack is from just outside Damascus.
That's Syria, folks. Different country. Not sure who they thought they were fooling, but engaging Israel from a third country isn't going to cut it. So far it's US/Israel tech versus (basically) Russian;
seeing who can intercept more of the other's missiles.
The Rooskies and their offshoots are not going to win that one. So, it's no real big deal, yet. Putin is smart enough to sit back and watch this play out. He knows that Trump is still prone to accepting
Russia to the West.
Not something the deep state likes, but the real adversary is Red China and they can still get their dough. For now. Trump will tackle his pal Xi in the near future. Right now it's handling the surrender of North Korea.
heard right. They have given up the ship; forced with regime change as a certainty and a nice 'demonstration' of how we could reach out and touch him at our choice, he did the rational thing and caved.
Years at Swiss schools taught him something. He's
brutal, not insane.
Guaranteed that no US led operation would be mounted to overthrow, the de-nuclearization became a fait accompli', and now it's just hammering down the fine print. Think 'Berlin Wall 1989' and you'll get the picture.
regimes cannot withstand a true Free Opposition. Reagan proved that much.
Iran, on the other hand, is a multi-layered affair. Once a free (and non Islamic) country -women wore bikinis there in the late 60's- it was seized by fundamentalists in 1977.
Allowed to survive since, they have morphed into the quasi post modernist/11th century bastard hybrid it currently is.
The people are WAY cooler than those in charge.
Those who seek an Islamic caliphate are behind them. So are those who want
a bulwark against Israeli hegemonic goals. There are a LOT of natural resources in that area. Always follow the money.
Then there is another movement.
One that uses the 11th century mindset for their own purposes. Check that. Islam in the 11th
century was enlightened. No, this is SEVENTH century stuff. Beheadings and all that. By allowing it to exist -even thrive- this other player has an asset they can deploy.
In this hemisphere it's MS-13. Same people behind all of this.
middle eastern countries -Saddam's Iraq, Ghadafi's Libya, Assad's Syria- has cost the United States taxpayers over six trillion dollars, and the real number is unknown. It has netted death, destruction, instability and a massive refugee crisis.
on a grand scale. Out of order comes chaos, as some of them say.
The last administration cashed in on this in grand fashion. Not to single them out; so too, did the previous three. Keep things unstable and you can fleece the people better. Nobody came
along and said 'enough of this crap'.
The deal with Iran wasn't a deal in the sense people think. It was a bold attempt to alter the power continuum in the region. If Islam is empowered it will stop Zionist expansionism. No matter
what one thinks, it is a strategy.
But it is founded on quicksand.
You see, it isn't the Balfour agreement or any other such bi-lateral pact. There is a UN Resolution -and the UN is 'god', right? called 242 that codifies Israel as a legitimate
state. Their existence is at least as legitimate as anyione else's since.
So, constantly calling for their destruction is just a non starter.
This 'inconvenient truth' cannot be denied. Therefore, if one wants to negotiate in the region they
simply must be part of the equation. This puts the Mullahs, their backers and the seventh century force (known as 'international terrorism') squarely behind the old 8 ball.
Backing Iran is a losing scenario. The EU, and their pals in the previous administation
bet on the wrong horse. No matter what the media tells you, Iran is in a world of shit right now and haven't a clue how to proceed.
President Trump knows this as well.
However, Israel is not going to get the free ride it desires, either. We are
NOT their proxy force. But what's right is what's right,and they have history on their side; not the PLO or any other fringe group.
This whole affair will be sorted by late fall. You heard right.
It's festered long enough, just has a 1950's Stalinist
regime on the Korean peninsula. There is a major economic imbalance and debt load that needs to be addressed. These disturbances are in the way.
If you don't think the current group at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue think like this you haven't
studied your subject. Business people think logic as policy.
Bureaucrats have it just the opposite. But they are no longer in charge, are they? No matter how much they huff and puff. Stormy Daniels and her $130,000 issue is pretty funny when you weigh
Like Patton slapping the soldier in 1944. The Germans couldn't believe we would transfer our greatest fighting general because he accused a corporal of cowardice. This is even sillier.
But is behind this backdrop that President Trump
will greet the 'three gentlemen' that 'Rocket Man' freed. He's just happy to be alive right now. Look at his body language closely. It's pretty obvious he's seen the light.
The real news?
The Mullahs are next; Stormy and her lawyer nonetheless...
