BC: A New Middle East: An Assessment

2222

Developments in Syria and Iraq are in an dynamic phase where day to day developments can distract from the assessment of probable midi- to long-term developments. Operand factors in this assessment are Russian – Turkish relations, a redirection of Russian Middle East policy, the accord on Iran’s nuclear energy program…

All the past wars and conflicts seem to have taught Washington nothing, since it’s no wiser than it used to be. Today the US doesn’t have the military might or financial resources to dictate its will to countries with non-Western cultures. The White House has been proved unable to shape other states along its own patternIt has…

Washington and Israel’s Territorial Amb...

As the 2020 US election campaign picks up steam, the Trump administration has gone above and beyond to attract the attention of its most loyal supporters in a bid to obtain their backing. While during his previous election campaign, Trump would use an “America First” slogan to win over the middle class, it’s hardly…

Politics and Religion

ME435343

Interactions between politics and religion began with the birth of politics. For centuries, this relationship continued to undergo metamorphoses, especially, at times, when either sphere attempted to dominate the other. From the onset, religion has always been used as a tool by politicians to hold on to power. Out of the two means used…

OPCW Faces a Credibility Crisis

OPC2245

A series WMD-related accusations leveled against Damascus was the primary driving behind Washington’s agenda in the Middle East as a whole, and Syria in particular. Instead of assisting the peace process that encompasses all the parties locked in a bitter feud in an attempt to stabilize the region, the West prefers to undermine it by throwing around allegations…

BC: Iran Maneuvers to “Contain the US” in Syr...

787

Apart from Russia, it is Iran that has a legitimate presence in Syria, and has fought directly to prevent the fall of Assad from power. Over the last six years of Syrian war, Iran’s role and character has expanded and changed from sending military advisers and fighters to becoming a new bone of contention between Russia and the US over its future presence and role…

Qatar – Education as a Weapon

DOW46456

There seems to be no limit to Qataris tossing around their wealth. This tiny kingdom with 2.6 million inhabitants is full of ridiculously lavish gold-plated palaces, most of them built with terrible taste. It is overflowing with Lamborghini racing cars and Rolls Royce limousines, and now, even with ludicrously wasteful air-conditioned sidewalks (cold air blows from below, into the 35C heat…

There’s no denying that recent years have witnessed bilateral relations between Turkey and the United States taking a massive plunge. These days, those are characterized by a long list of contradictions that render Ankara incompatible with the status of a NATO-ally. It’s hardly a secret that ties between…

“Robbing” Syria’s Oil to Thwart Syria’s Recov...

UST423423

In the name of what the US president called “securing the oil” or what the Pentagon chose to describe as an attempt to “protect” Syria’s oil, the US is basically indulging in what can, in simple terms, be described as purposeful pillaging of Syria’s natural resources. There are three objectives that the US aims to achieve through this “control…

Baghdadi, the Invisible Leader of a Fake Army

BAG7543

Before we begin, for those who are not intelligence specialists, these axioms must be, if not learned, at least introduced. Behind the curtain exists a Deep State, a world super-government that will minimally influence and in most cases control national governments. Governments are controlled to control resources, to manipulate markets through manufactured…
