The Plan: Why Israel Is Bent on Supporting Arab Division By Elias Samo

13 November 2018 — Strategic Culture Foundation

During many meetings with senior members of the Syrian opposition in various European cities in 2013-2014, I would remind them that Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the United States, amongst others, host and finance the opposition due to their own self-interest and agendas; and not out of love for Syria. I would note that there is no disagreement among us Syrians about the brutality, corruption and exploitation of the Ottoman Empire during its four-century rule of Syria; we don’t want history to repeat itself.

11 November 2018 — The Syria Times – Global Research

Telling the truth about the events taking place in Syria before world public opinion is an uphill battle because the real agenda of the terrorism-backers  who are seeking to destroy the Middle East, must remain unspeakable.

This fact is clarified by Canadian author Mark Taliano, in his book entitled ‘Voices from Syria’ with a view to shedding light on the truth, refuting the lies, with a view to reaching global peace and destroying the cancer of terrorism.

[This is an extract from much longer document “Why the U.S. Military is Woefully Unprepared for a Major Conventional Conflict“, which was originally released by SouthFront on October 10, 2018 and well worth reading]

Introduction

In the Department of Defense authored summary of the National Defense Strategy of the United States for 2018, Secretary James Mattis quite succinctly sets out the challenges and goals of the U.S. military in the immediate future. Importantly, he acknowledges that the U.S. had become far too focused on counter-insurgency over the past two decades, but he seems to miss the causation of this mission in the first place. U.S. foreign policy, and its reliance on military intervention to solve all perceived problems, regime change and imperialist adventurism, resulted in the need to occupy nations, or destroy them. This leads to the growth of insurgencies, and the strengthening of long simmering religious radicalism and anti-western sentiment in the Middle East and Central Asia. The U.S. military willfully threw itself headlong into a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Russia Financial Advisory Assistance To Venezuela Is “Regime Reinforcement” By Andrew KORYBKO

6 November 2018 — Oriental Review

Russia dispatched financial advisors to Venezuela upon Caracas’ request.

The Russian team landed in the country’s capital a day after a Chinese delegation, making some wonder whether the two Great Powers are coordinating their efforts to save their shared Latin American partner’s economy. Both countries have an interest in ensuring the success of President Maduro’s latest reforms in order to safeguard the stability of his democratically elected and legitimate government, which is responsible for repaying the loans that they issued it over the past couple of years and also fulfilling the energy cooperation contracts that were signed between them too. An American-backed regime change could therefore lead to the newly installed “authorities” backtracking on these commitments and looking for “legal loopholes” to avoid honoring them, which is why Russia and China’s financial advisory assistance to Venezuela should be understood through the perspective of “regime reinforcement”.

WaPo: Trump, Venezuela and the prospect of a coup

The Washington Post (9/10/18) describes US officials meeting with Venezuelan coup-plotters to discuss the overthrow of President Nicolás Maduro as “more fuel for his paranoia.” And it cites the White House dismissing “speculation that it wants to intervene” in Venezuela—ignoring the fact that the US has for years been heavily intervening to wreck the country’s economy.
