State Sec. Mike Pompeo to visit S.-A., cut short rest of Middle East trip


Pompeo will return home after meetings in Oman instead of travelling on to Kuwait, deputy spokesman Robert Palladino said. U.S. officials said the death was in the family of his wife, who accompanied him on the trip and will return with him.

My condolences to his wife's family and the bereaved.

The U.S. Embassy in Riyadh tweeted that Pompeo and the crown prince had agreed on the need for a continued de-escalation in Yemen and adherence to agreements made last month at talks in Sweden to end a nearly four-year civil war between Yemen's Saudi-backed government and the Iranian-aligned #Houthis.

#Russia enforces troop strength on #Mariupol


Russian occupation forces in Donbas focus their efforts mainly on the Mariupol direction and in the Azov Sea area, Commander of Ukraine's Joint Forces Serhiy Nayev says. "Russian occupation forces are not attacking, but this doesn't mean that they ceased their attempts to provoke further conflict," Nayev said in an interview with Austria's Wiener Zeitung, according to the JFO HQ press service.

The epic Mahabharata, eulogized and worshiped by devotees worldwide, takes center stage in the artist's current creative repertoire. Tomassetti’s paintings, mostly in large size and bold colors, engage with the phenomenal Sanskrit epic of ancient India. As the title suggests it is a mahan (great) narration about bharatbaraga (descendants of Bharat/India), inscribed millennia ago by rishi Vyasadeva, around 400 BCE. Revered as a significant civilizational marker, the Mahabharata is the longest epic poem ever written. In... show more

D Eisenhower : Every Gun That Is Made


Dwight D Eisenhower, US president, 1953–1961 :
 Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.

William M. Arkin leaves #NBC News


In his farewell memo, he said the American press is not aggressive enough about covering military engagements.
"I find it disheartening that we do not report the failures of the generals and national security leaders," he said. "I find it shocking that we essentially condone continued American bumbling in the Middle East and now Africa through our ho-hum reporting."

Understandable. Although it is exhaustingly difficult to be more severe about reporting on the US-American wars in the Middle East without decreasing seriousness and credibility. I heard of Caitlin Johnstone's version of the report, and must admit that her standards are those which cross the line of credibility and enter the mode of commenting on reports rather than reporting in general. Commenting is easy because it doesn't require and seriousness on the topic and gives you a free hand on writing whatever you want. It is the art of staying neutral that defines a report.

of the ACO plan for failing the FUSA.
The first thing to understand about the proposed “Green New Deal” is that the first New Deal not only failed to end the Great Depression but made it more severe and longer-lasting. Its only “success” was in creating endless patronage opportunities and levers of #political bribery and #extortion for the #Democratic Party, opportunities that the #Republican Party happily embraced whenever it could to expand its own power and wealth in the succeeding decades. The proposed #GreenNewDeal would do the same, only many orders of magnitude worse.

#Trump evaluates withdrawal of troops from #Afghanistan


“Why isn’t #Russia there? Why isn’t #India there? Why isn’t #Pakistan there?” Drumpf said in televised comments to reporters during a cabinet meeting on January 2. “Why are we there and we’re 6,000 miles away?”

Many observers have warned that the partial withdrawal could further degrade security and jeopardize possible peace talks with the Taliban aimed at ending its 17-year insurgency.

Yes, indeed. The US may not have solved the problem (which they put up from the predecessors, the Soviet Union), but at least, they kept the situation away f... show more
 

#Pakistan should receive less money until it's proven its fight against terrorists


Last January, #US President Donald Drumpf said, “The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies and deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!”

Possibly one of the few sentences that are actually right. So far, we have rather experienced the opposite of what Pakistan was supposed to do: To fight the terrorists who fight in Afghanistan. It pocketed foreign aids and fooled its donators.

Meanwhile, in a recent interview to foreign media, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan stated that Pakistan had suffered from fighting America’s war.

Former NBC reporter questions "endless war" perspective

“I’m alarmed at how quick NBC is to mechanically argue the contrary, to be in favor of policies that just spell more conflict and more war. Really? We shouldn’t get out Syria? We shouldn’t go for the bold move of denuclearizing the Korean peninsula? Even on Russia, though we should be concerned about the brittleness of our democracy that it is so vulnerable to manipulation, do we really yearn for the Cold War? And don’t even get me started with the FBI: What? We now lionize this historically destructive institution?”

I do believe there will be a Civil War II, and quite possibly a hot #war in certain areas, in part because we know something will happen in our nation’s future to explain why there is no clear reference the U.S.A. in the book of #Revelation. And I agree with JWR that it will be more along red/blue ideological lines. But when will it happen?…
~ from a comment on this article

You want to know why the U.S.A. isn't referenced in the book of revelation?

My opinion: because the #Bible (esp. Revelation) is mainly about events that will happen in the East - middle East, Israel, Europe. Russia, etc.

… „WAR“ is a mass of people not knowing each other but shooting each other over nothing.

„WAR“ is an anonymous beast – unless you look at the fates of individuals… they you start to realize all the sadness of this artificial human self-destructive construct.

No one likes to die – especially not at the age of 38.

But even elite soldiers die – extremely sad – at home! beeing shot by a post traumatic stress disordered soldier-college.

Economic warfare: Trafficking minors as soldiers


Kirkpatrick reports that some families in Sudan are so desperate for money from Riyadh, they bribe militia officers to allow their children to fight, some as young as 14 years old. While estimates vary and Saudi Arabia denied employing child soldiers, the Times reports that minors make up anywhere from 20 percent to 40 percent of the Sudanese fighters in a unit:

This has gone from desperate to awkwardly macabre. I mean, how desperate do you have to be to sell your own children to Arabic warmongers to let them fight in a war that cannot be won by any side anymore? This is strangely sinister. I have got no proper words to describe it anymore. I mean, they sell their children to a war they may not even understand, they may not even know which whom they'd side, it's a foreign war to them. They only know that there are people who need new resources to fire against their enemies.

Lindsey Graham approves military withdrawal from Syria


Lindsey Graham, who had earlier called the withdrawal decision a "huge Obama-like mistake", told journalists: "The president assured me he is going to make sure he gets the job done.

Oh, how his mental tables have turned. First, he found it a bad idea, comparing it to an Obama-like turn, but now that Donnie did it anyway, he thinks it's all right. What a turncoat - surely he thinks he could still get a job in the Trump administration, doesn't he?

Speaking later on CNN, Mr Graham also expressed concern that the US withdrawal would leave "our allies the Kurds" in the north of Syria exposed to attacks from Turkey.

That's common sense, isn't it?

Reading on, calling it some kind of «appreciation» might be the wrong term, but at least, his criticism has lowed down, it lost its heaviness.

#Russia bans goods from #Ukraine in retaliation


The ban list, updated by the Russian government Saturday, covers wheat, chocolate, vegetables, fruits, beer, tractors, paper, furniture, children’s and feminine care products, among dozens of other goods and products.

An interesting mixture; as we all know, sanctions always work out well in the beneath-lying intent. History has taught us so, and so we can use them now to empower our interests. Go on!

The updated ban, which the Kremlin claims values around $510 million in 2018, comes as tensions rise again between the two countries in a conflict that stems from Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea and the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine.

Not sure I should be surprised this contradicts other things I'd previously heard and read about the YPG. In recent months I recall articles, podcasts and photos of graffiti suggesting the YPG was some kind of egalitarian, socially aware entity that we should support.

On the border patrol custody facilities


She added: "They are designed and meant for punishment and deterrence, and this is nothing unique about this administration. These [Customs and Border Protection] facilities have been nasty and ugly since I started this work."

Now, we still have to reflect the fact that these facilities have been built even before Obama has become president, am I right? We're not talking about the ICE, but about the border patrol. What can we say about this, nonetheless? That no sitting president cared about the conditions in which people have been taken custody. Neither Mr. Obama, nor Donnie, nor anyone before these two. It's terrifying.

"We've seen this coming," she said. "When you take a child and you put them into a facility that's cold, and they don't get proper sleep because the lights are on, and they have risk of infection from open toilets, it's a really bad combination of things that could really result in some very sick children."

May he rest in peace


Her husband, Ali Hassan, flew with their son to the US on October 1 seeking treatment for the boy's genetic brain condition. Abdullah was the couple's only child.
Both Abdullah and his father were US citizens.

And still, they had to experience such difficulties when they wanted to visit their son who has been kept alive in the US? Incomprehensible to me, I don't understand this situation. Sigh...

Doctors had previously told Hassan that patients like his son are usually on life support for two or three weeks, or a month at most. Abdullah had been on a ventilator at the Children's Hospital for more than a month.

What's the state of the art in the Middle East now?


But leave that aside and consider the Drumpf presidency from a purely Israeli standpoint. Are Israelis better off now that the U.S. Embassy is in Jerusalem? Not materially. The move was mostly a matter of symbolism, albeit of an overdue and useful sort. Are Israelis safer from Iran now that the U.S. is no longer in the Iran deal and sanctions are back in force? Only marginally. Sanctions are a tool of strategy, not a strategy unto themselves.

And also, sanctions are a useless part of any strategy because it will only let the hit people hail their leaders even more, assuming that thtey did so by little before. You will hurt the people, not the leaders, and the people will hail their leaders because the other side has booted them. Strange but true.
