Iran Warns U.S. Of ‘Dangerous Consequences’ As Saudi Arabia And Israel Back U.S. Move

  • Iran Warns U.S. Of ‘Dangerous Consequences’ As Saudi Arabia And Israel Back U.S. Move
    by Zak Doffman, https://www.forbes.com/
    On Monday, the U.S. government took the “historic step” to designate part of the Iranian government a terrorist organization. “The State Department intends to designate as a Foreign Terrorist Organization the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in its entirety, including the Qods Force,” read the statement. This is the first time the U.S. has taken this step against a foreign government entity.

    In their own statement, Iran’s Supreme National Security Council responded by condemning the “illegal and dangerous” move by the U.S. regime as a “major threat to regional and international peace and security and a blatant violation of the compelling rules of international law and the United Nations Charter.” The Council warned that the U.S. “will be responsible for dangerous consequences of this adventurist measure.” Later reports confirmed that Iran had reciprocated in kind, branding the U.S. a terrorist sponsor and part of its military a terrorist organization.

    As the tit for tat played out, Trita Parsi the president of the National Iranian American Council, was quoted in the Financial Times saying that “the unprecedented decision to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization will not put any significant additional economic pressures on Iran,” but it does “close yet another potential door for peacefully resolving tensions with Iran. Once all doors are closed, and diplomacy is rendered impossible, war will essentially become inevitable.”

    Both Saudi Arabia and Israel expressed support for Washington’s move against Teheran.

Trump’s Neocons See Erdogan as Their Ticket to a Region-Wide Middle East War

  • Trump’s Neocons See Erdogan as Their Ticket to a Region-Wide Middle East War
    by , http://www.unz.com/
    Turkish troops and armored units are massed along Turkey’s southern border awaiting orders to invade northern Syria. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants to clear a ten mile-deep swath of land east of the Euphrates River in order to remove terrorist-linked militants (YPG) currently occupying the territory. The proposed offensive would put US Special Forces in the line of fire which significantly increases the likelihood of US casualties. If American troops are killed or wounded by the Turkish operation, Washington will respond in force leading to a potentially catastrophic face-off between the two NATO allies. The possibility of a violent clash between Turkey and the United States has never been greater than it is today.


    On Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Turkey that any unilateral action in Syria would have “devastating consequences.” Pompeo’s comments were intended to intimidate Erdogan who stated on Tuesday that the military offensive would begin shortly after last weekend’s elections. If Erdogan proceeds with his plan, Pompeo will undoubtedly give the military the go-ahead for retaliatory attacks on the Turkish Army. This will either lead to a speedy retreat by Turkey or asymmetrical strikes on US strategic assets across the region. In any event, the fracas with Turkey is bound to widen the chasm between the two former allies forcing Erdogan to reconsider his commitment to the western alliance. Any further deterioration in relations between the US and Turkey could result in a dramatic shift in the global balance of power.

    Washington’s problems with Erdogan began years before the current dust-up. The Turkish leader has always steered an independent foreign policy which has been a constant source of frustration for the White House. During the war in Iraq, Erdogan refused to allow the US to use Turkish air bases to conduct their operations. (Erdogan did not support the war.) Presently he is purchasing air defense systems from Russia (S-400), (which VP Mike Pence has strongly condemned), he has attended summits in Sochi with Moscow and Tehran in order to find a political settlement for the war in Syria, he has signed contracts with Gazprom that will make his country the energy hub of southern Europe, and he has been harshly critical of US support for the its Kurdish proxies in east Syria (the SDF) which is an offshoot of the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK), a group that is on the US State Department’s list of terrorist organizations.

    Most of the friction between Erdogan and the US has been brought on by Washington’s flagrant disregard for Turkey’s security concerns. The current crisis is just another self inflicted wound, like the failed coup in 2016 which backfired spectacularly strengthening Erdogan’s grip on power while fueling widespread distrust of the United States. Check out this excerpt from an article in the New York Times dated August 2, 2016:

Ron Paul Liberty Report: NATO At 70 — Time For The Zombie To Die

  • RonPaulLibertyReport Streamed live on Apr 4, 2019
    If NATO were a person, it would be five years past retirement age. In fact NATO should have retired back in the early 1990s when its reason for existence – the Warsaw Pact – ceased to exist. Instead, new missions had to be created and new enemies had to be made to justify the massive behemoth that provides lush jobs for the well-connected and vast fortunes for the weapons makers. NATO must die and the sooner the better.

  • Riyadh’s Dirty Secret: Saudi Arabia Thirsty for Yemeni Oil, Gas Reserves
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    Why does Saudi Arabia continue to bomb Yemen back into the Stone Age? The crux of the matter is that Yemen has oil reserves, while Riyadh is steadily running out of the commodity, American political analyst Phil Butler explains.

    According to American political analyst and researcher Phil Butler, the US-backed Saudi Arabian war against Yemen is neither about the longstanding sectarian strife between Sunnis and Shiites, nor about the much-discussed military campaign aimed against al-Qaeda in the region.

    While Western media outlets usually refer to Yemen as a “small” energy producer, the truth of the matter is the country is sitting on substantial oil and gas reserves, which Saudi Arabia and its allies want to control, Butler notes.

Senators Demand Details On US Aid To Possible Saudi “Covert Nuclear Weapons Program”

  • Senators Demand Details On US Aid To Possible Saudi “Covert Nuclear Weapons Program”
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    The Trump administration has been sharing sensitive nuclear technology and energy information with the Saudis — an issue that’s gained increased scrutiny since the Oct. 2 murder of journalist Jamal Kashoggi by a Saudi hit team at the consulate in Istanbul.

    American lawmakers now want to get to bottom of it, and a group of senators have notified Energy Secretary Rick Perry to demand answers over how and why he allowed multiple US firms to provide Riyadh with potential nuclear secrets and information sharing typically only available to Washington’s closest western allies. The Senators are also seeking answers regarding the kingdom’s possible development of atomic weapons and the degree to which they’ve received any level of assistance from the United States.

    Starting a week ago various media reports revealed that Perry had authorized so-called Part 810 approvals, which gave US companies authorization to share otherwise closely guarded nuclear information with Riyadh. Alarmingly, according to Reuters, the “approvals were kept from the public and from Congress.” The approval had been reportedly given first in November 2017, which facilitated the transfer of “unclassified civil nuclear technology”.

    It appears the Energy Department’s defense will hinge on the necessity of leaving such information sharing programs private in order not to reveal “proprietary business information.” The department has further emphasized “no enrichment or reprocessing technology” was shared with Saudi Arabia.
