and most of the countries in the Middle East dont recognize Israel, including Iran, syria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait etc. Only Egypt and Jordan have full diplomatic relations.

A sovereign nation can choose its own internal policies / foreign relations. That includes inviting the US and refusing to recognize Israel.

As for the rest of the BS in your post feel free to support it.

Ok Xcath I'll repeat it. Chuckles doesn't mind stating the obvious when you are so blind when USA has no business being in Syria just like it had no right being in Canada in 1812. Natives don't like foreigners dictating to them

Sovereign nations in the region dont want Assad and dont want Russian involvement.



Sovereign nations in the region certainly don't want Israel in the region............................. You gonna start filtering terrorists into Israel and start killing the the IDF with your f16's?
I don't think the USA is going to start attacking Israel which really is the hated state in the region lol.

Look Xcath Syria for all its issues is a soverign state under attack by western and Gulf sponsored terrorists. The one nation on planet Earth that has made the big difference in getting rid of ISIS is Russia, they have bombed them into retreat, something the USA mysteriously was unable to do with all its super duper tech. Those Russians have saved Christians from being exterminated from their ancient homeland in Syria and if you don't recognise that you one blind individual and one that cares nothing for Christendom in its heartland of the ME

I thought that Trump's speech in Saudi Arabia weeks ago made this clear. War with Iran is coming. Where that leads - who the hell knows. But the man himself laid out a war with Iran is coming pretty clearly.

If Hezbollah came out with that statement, it's likely because Trump is such a dick and emboldening them.
Hezbollah should stick to protecting their own people in that little strip. Anything they do is not likely to help Syria regain lost land, but is likely to destroy what little they have. That's not what ordinary people there want.

The US was invited by Syria to assist against ISIS on condition,those conditions were not and have not been met.

lets be real,
The strategic goal still remains, the removal of pres. Assad from power along with his government

To date there are no sanctions against the states funding ISIS, the West has not identified nor condemned these sponsors, let alone move toward leveling sanctions.

Create the problem, be the solution
Since 2014, the US Air Force with a coalition of 19 countries have relentlessly waged an intense air campaign against Syria allegedly bombing the Islamic State , From the very outset this has not been directed against ISIS.
The air raids are intended to destroy the economic industry and infrastructure of Syria.

ISIS is not only the Construct of US and its allies, it is their protectorate.Trained and financed by US-NATO, with support of Persian Gulf allies,
to set the legal justification to wage war on Syria.

I seem to remember the first Russians were invited to Afghanistan in the 1970s.

By the "sovereign" government.

That worked out well.

The "sovereign" government of Vietnam likewise sought US assistance.

That worked out well.

The legitimacy of "sovereign" governments is always questionable.

Especially when they murder their citizens.



The non "sovereign" Kurds are important to the future of the region.

Iraq has effectively fractured.

Sykes Picot may not be the future of the region.

I would not like to see the Iranians and the Turks destroy the Kurds.

No easy solutions at this point I think....

the Syrian fighter kill was a message to all sides that the USA is gonna carve out a Fortress State, a USA & Kurd Zone that is destined to survive Iran/Hezbollah/Syrian & Russian aggressions

The Kurdish of Rojava state has already been carved out in Northeast Syria with Euphrates river as border. The 55km zone is essentially what Russia did with Crimea. Tit for tat eh?

The reason they are sitting there is to block the Damascus/Baghdad highway preventing a land route from Iran to Lebanon. It is also why Israel is becoming agitated.

According to the Hal Turner show, The Russians shot down an Eq-4 Global Hawk. Thats a quick escalation if true.

U.S. EQ-4 GLOBAL HAWK DRONE SHOT DOWN BY RUSSIAN S-300 OVER MEDITERRANEAN SEA NEAR SYRIA

UPDATE 11:46 PM EDT --

Reports are now coming in that a United States Air Force EQ-4 "Global Hawk" drone was shot down over the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Syria, by a Russian S-300 surface-to-air missile fired from the Russian Base at Tartus, Syria.
If this information that the Russians shot down an EQ-4 Global Hawk is accurate, then US Troops operating on the ground with Syrian "Rebels" will no longer be able to INSTANTLY talk to nearby air support as was done a few days ago, when a US F/A-18 was called-in to attack and destroy a Syrian Arab Army Air Force fighter jet.
Such a shoot down by Russia would be pricey retaliation over the US Shoot-down of a Syrian Jet, without causing the US to feel a need to avenge anything; like a pilot. It would send a Russian message to the US not to shoot down anymore Syrian government aircraft.

If the Pentagon Press office responds to my inquiry, this story will be further updated.

12:04 AM EDT June 22, 2017

The Iranians have not made any mention of destroying the Kurds as part of their goal as far as I can recall. The Kurds themselves are alleged by local Arabs to be guilty of some crimes themselves, lets not put Halo's around them just yet.

"Kurds have no friends but the mountains."



I know less than I would like to.

I always appreciate your posts and perspective on events in the Middle East.

My concern is that if Assad survives he might seek revenge.

My point was that "sovereignty" is an intellectual construct.

The present policy of the Iranians is not easy to assess.

They have a lot of forces working against them.

Yet they seem capable and confident in their actions.

Far more competent than any other Middle Eastern nation except the Israelis.

I suspect they are being underestimated badly.

The people banging the War Drum against them may well regret the miscalculation.

Thanks for keeping me aware of events in the area.

No problem. Now Hezbollah is threatening Israel too if they are attacked, and the IAF says they can do more damage today in two or three days than they did in a month back in '06. Claims of importing hundreds of thousands of fighters from all over.

Hezbollah head: ‘Hundreds of thousands’ of Muslim fighters will respond if Israel attacks
BEIRUT, Lebanon — The head of Lebanese terror group Hezbollah, an Iranian proxy, on Friday warned Israel against attacking Lebanon or Syria, saying “hundreds of thousands” of Arab and Muslim fighters would be ready to strike back.

“The Israeli enemy should know that if it launches an attack on Syria or Lebanon, it’s unknown whether the fighting will stay just between Lebanon and Israel, or Syria and Israel,” Hassan Nasrallah said. “I’m not saying countries would intervene directly — but it would open the door for hundreds of thousands of fighters from all around the Arab and Islamic world to participate in this fight — from Iraq, Yemen, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan,” he said.

The powerful Shiite movement and Israel have fought many battles including a devastating 34-day war in 2006 that killed 1,200 people in Lebanon, mainly civilians, and 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers.
Earlier this week, the head of Israel’s air force said it would have “unimaginable” military power at hand in any future conflict with Hezbollah.

“What the air force was able to do quantitatively in the… Lebanon war over the course of 34 days we can do today in 48-60 hours,” Major General Amir Eshel said on Wednesday. “This is potential power unimaginable in its scope, much different to what we have seen in the past and far greater than people estimate.”


So I expect these two to be fighting again by fall. Many things seem to all be converging on to this years autumn months. Such as budget problems during the fiscal 2018 budget that will need to be addressed in October with a debt ceiling discussion. BRICS nations as a whole will have gained the 15% voting share in the IMF needed for veto power on policy decisions, such as quota reforms. To date since its existence, only the USA has had that privilege.

I believe the African Union mandate in Somalia ends near the end of the year. So Expect ISIS to pop up there in some sudden surge around the same time to justify the need to fill it with more CJTFOIR forces, which are also comprised of 27 of 28 NATO states.

Lots of craziness will be catching up in the fall, stay vigilante

An IMF veto requires 85% approval and not 15%. The US holds 16% so in essence 85% cant be reached without the US. However reforms will shift imf voting numbers to other emerging market countries (like russia and india). Individually they still wont meet the 85% requirement however when combined with other nations they can meet the 15% threshold to veto / block an action.
