US Bellicosity – LewRockwell

U.S. threats to crush Iran and North Korea may yet work, but as of now neither Tehran nor Pyongyang appears to be intimidated.

Repeated references by NSC adviser John Bolton and Vice President Mike Pence to the “Libya model” for denuclearization of North Korea just helped sink the Singapore summit of President Trump and Kim Jong Un. To North Korea, the Libya model means the overthrow and murder of Libya strongman Col. Gadhafi, after he surrendered his WMD. Read the rest of this entry »

Israel Uses Intelligence Cutouts To Target the US – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 11, 2018

More of the same from Israel. These guys are in control and won’t give up.

https://original.antiwar.com/smith-grant/2018/05/10/israel-uses-intelligence-cutouts-to-target-the-us/

by 

An Israeli intelligence entity called “Black Cube” targeted Obama administration officials such as former foreign policy advisor Ben Rhoads and outside experts, such as the National Iranian American Council’s Trita Parsi, that advocated for passage of the JCPOA known as the “Iran nuclear deal.” Though most media reports reference Black Cube’s self-designation as a “private intelligence company” while noting it employs former Mossad officers, there are reasons to doubt it is entirely unconnected from the Israeli government, which wanted to undermine the JCPOA. Israeli spy Shai Masot, secretly recorded in an Al Jazeera undercover video, freely admitted Israel was setting up just such private corporations to clandestinely do its bidding. While not solely responsible for the Trump Administration’s decision to ditch the JCPOA, Black Cube’s intelligence operation clearly tried to inch the US closer to open military conflict with Iran, which could cost countless lives and trillions of dollars…

Do Americans Want To Die For Israel? – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 10, 2018

The Saker says that “Americans should ask themselves—Do I want to die for Israel?” https://russia-insider.com/en/americans-should-ask-themselves-do-i-want-die-israel/ri23382

That is the question you should ask your child when they contemplate military “service”.

Paul Craig Roberts

Only a few days remain before Trump announces whether he is pulling the US out of the multi-nation agreement with Iran. Iran has kept the agreement. https://www.geopolitica.ru/en/article/message-iran

Even Washington’s vassals—UK, France, Germany—have announced that they are sticking with the agreement.
https://sputniknews.com/world/201805071064213277-france-germany-uk-iran-deal-us-decision/

So where is the pressure on Trump coming from to destroy the carefully negotiated agreement in which Iran agreed to forgo development of nuclear weapons?

It comes from Israel and Israel’s American Fifth Column—the neoconservatives. Read the rest of this entry »

Trump declares US leaving ‘horrible’ Iran nuclear accord

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 9, 2018

Worst move so far.  I hope this is just some ploy and Trump backs off after he gets what he wants from whomever he wants it from.

The US’ vassal states have it right for once. They want to stick with the plan.

https://apnews.com/cead755353a1455bbef08ef289448994/Trump-decides-to-exit-nuclear-accord-with-Iran

By CATHERINE LUCEY and JOSH LEDERMAN

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the landmark nuclear accord with Iran on Tuesday, abruptly restoring harsh sanctions in the most consequential foreign policy action of his presidency. He declared he was making the world safer, but he also deepened his isolation on the world stage and revived doubts about American credibility….

Don’t Trash the Nuclear Deal! – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 8, 2018

Are we going to let Netanyahu and ExxonMobil determine the fate of US?

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/05/patrick-j-buchanan/dont-trash-the-nuclear-deal/

By 

This next week may determine whether President Trump extricates us from that cauldron of conflict that is the Middle East, as he promised, or plunges us even deeper into these forever wars….

Yet more fateful for our future is the decision Trump will make by Saturday. May 12 is his deadline to decide whether America trashes the Iran nuclear deal and reimposes sanctions….

Dumb Moves Have Consequences, by Philip Giraldi – The Unz Review

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 3, 2018

This article was written before Benjamin Netanyahu came out with his Powerpoint presentation of lies and half truths to justify demonizing Iran over its non-existent nuclear weapons program. He failed to mention that Israel has a 200 nuke arsenal undeclared and is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Iran has no weapons, is a signatory and is subject to unannounced inspections of all its sites.

http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/dumb-moves-have-consequences/

 

The analysis of the recent exchanges between French President Emmanuel Macron and President Donald Trump suggest that Washington is most likely about to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear agreement with Iran that was signed by the U.S. and five other governments in July 2015. The decision will likely be made public before the deadline on re-ratifying the agreement, which is May 12th. As one informed observer has noted, “a train wreck is probably coming, with very damaging consequences that are hard to predict.”… Read the rest of this entry »

Neocon Bret Stephens – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 1, 2018

“It is mind boggling that someone as astute as Stephens would call for the decapitation of the regime in the same way U.S. had done in Iraq without providing an alternative to the regime.

An Israel firster beats an America firster every time.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/05/michael-s-rozeff/neocon-bret-stephens-wants-syrias-assad-assassinated/

..His Jewish identity is mentioned hand-in-hand with his political orientation by The Times of Israel: “In criticizing Trump even after his electoral victory, Stephens joins other leading Jewish conservative voices, including Brooks, Jennifer Rubin and William Kristol.” His Jewish identity is pertinent because he is known as a neocon and a strong supporter of Israel. The one seems to reinforce the other. Furthermore, his position on Iraq was criminal and disastrous and now he’s advocating a position on Syria that would also be criminal and disastrous. We should be extremely skeptical of the objectivity of someone like him who comes across as a shill for Israel and the Empire all-in-one. Read the rest of this entry »

Intelligence That Neither Hears Nor Sees – Antiwar.com Original

On February 13, the American intelligence community issued its Worldwide Threat Assessment. It is a frightening document to read. On North Korea, the agencies that hear everything cannot seem to hear anything North Korea has said; on Iran, the agencies that see everything cannot seem to see what they have long known.

Nikki Haley Attacks Iran, Forgets Her Country Is Currently Bombing Seven Nations – American Herald Tribune

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 10, 2018

https://ahtribune.com/us/trump-at-war/2062-nikki-haley-iran.html

On December 14, Haley once again disgraced herself on the international stage, when she displayed a missile that she claimed Iran delivered to rebels in Yemen. This, she warned darkly, was just further evidence of Iran’s nefarious purposes.

During this speech, delivered inside a military hanger in Washington, D.C., she made this amazing statement: Iran’s “ballistic missiles and advanced weapons are turning up in war zones across the region.”

Is it possible that she is either not aware of the fact, or is trying to distract from it, that the U.S.’s ‘ballistic missiles and advanced weapons are turning up in war zones across the region’? The U.S. is currently bombing seven nations. Read the rest of this entry »
