Mike Pompeo Lied About the U.S. and the Middle East. Here’s the Truth.

Mehdi Hasan

The Intercept, 11 January 2019

Shadi Hamid, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution’s Center for Middle East Policy, described it “as one of the worst foreign policy speeches I’ve witnessed from a senior U.S. official,” calling it “cynical, petty, incoherent, small, and, well, silly.” Paul Danahar, former BBC Middle East bureau chief, referred to the speech as “simplistic,” noting that “its theme was the goodness of Israel and evil of Iran.”

The effort to arrest Meng Wanzhou started last summer apparently, and the warrant was issued on 22 August. Nobody bothered to tell Trump (intentionally perhaps) and he was unaware of it at the time of the G2-Summit in Argentina. The potential fallout can make sure that China becomes a real enemy (watch how retaliation plays out) and the DC crowd will have their “perfect storm”.

Caitlin Johnstone: John Bolton, Psychopath Who Threatened to Murder an Envoy’s Children to Start Iraq War is Now Guiding the Planned War on Iran

Caitlin Johnstone at Ron Paul Conference

Throughout his appearances on such outlets as Fox NewsFox BusinessFox & Friends, CNN’s The Lead, and Conservative Review, Bolton has been repeating the blatantly false talking point that Iran is somehow uniquely egregious in the Middle East in its support for terrorist factions, calling it the “world’s central banker for international terrorism.”

Since we’re seeing so much John Bolton and so much talk of terrorists, I think this would be a good opportunity to remind everyone of the time John Bolton threatened to murder the children of an OPCW official in order to deceive the world into consenting to the Iraq war which killed a million people.

The Dark Side of Israeli Independence

On May 14, 1948, Israel declared its independence. Each May 15, Palestinians solemnly commemorate Nakba Day. Nakba means catastrophe, and that’s precisely what Israel’s independence has been for the more than 700,000 Arabs and their five million refugee descendants forced from their homes and into exile, often by horrific violence, to make way for the Jewish state.

Journalist Interrogated, Fired for Story Linking CIA to ‘Diplomatic’ Flights to Arm Syrian Rebels

If Bulgaria is ashamed of selling arms to the CIA it maybe shouldn’t have done it in the first place

Investigative reporter Dilyana Gaytandzhieva authored a bombshell report for Trud Newspaper, based in Sofia, Bulgaria, which found that an Azerbaijan state airline company was regularly transporting tons of weaponry to Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Turkey under diplomatic cover as part of the CIA covert program to supply anti-Assad fighters in Syria. Those weapons, Gaytandzhieva found, ended up in the hands of ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorists in Iraq and Syria.

How America armed terrorists in Syria

The significance of all this is clear: by helping its Sunni allies provide weapons to al Nusra Front and its allies and by funneling into the war zone sophisticated weapons that were bound to fall into al Nusra hands or strengthen their overall military position, U.S. policy has been largely responsible for having extended al Qaeda’s power across a significant part of Syrian territory. The CIA and the Pentagon appear to be ready to tolerate such a betrayal of America’s stated counter-terrorism mission.

WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS

The rise of the generals

Pat Buchanan on foreign policy: ‘What happened to the Trump of 2016?’

President Trump’s seeming renunciation of an anti-interventionist foreign policy is the great surprise of the first 100 days, and the most ominous. For any new war could vitiate the Trump mandate and consume his presidency.

Who is behind the seeming conversion of Trump to hawk?

The generals, Bibi Netanyahu and the neocons, congressional hawks with Cold War mindsets, the Saudi royal family and the Gulf Arabs – they are winning the battle for the president’s mind.
