Tag: NEO: New Eastern Outlook
Jim W. Dean - Seth Ferris once again wanders into a "no go" area, how the political world attracts flawed people into public service, where their flaws can be used to control them.
Jim W. Dean - What we can agree on with Valeriy Kulikov is that PMCs have definitely become a Pandora's box, where once let loose, there is no way to get the monsters all back inside .
A private security company establishes and secures Iraq’s first "toll highway". Will this mercenary action facilitate state-sponsored terror aimed at regime change?
Jim W. Dean - Phil Butler is coming at the attack on internet freedoms from a different angle than VT, but our roads intersect with Google and the tech giants.
Jim W. Dean - Phil Butler's article is currently number one on NEO. He also has a book coming out soon on the timely topic of Putin standing against the Neo-Cold war Deep Staters
Jim W. Dean - Today is a trip down memory road, with an older NEO - Phil Butler article that got lost in the shuffle. The theme is an often used one, how history repeats itself and Russia is front and center for today's lesson.
Now the dust has settled after an extraordinary week in Germany, we can see that this country is setting a new and disturbing agenda. What other countries had nightmares about, Germany is doing. A bandwagon has begun to roll which could steamroller all Europe, in a disturbing echo of that country’s inglorious and deadly past.
Gordon Duff - There are a dozen wars going on today, none are real, all are orchestrated by intelligence agencies and their partners – oil, banking, the arms industry – all backed by the puppets of the American and British governments, by Tel Aviv, and by the graduates of Annapolis and West Point.
Jim W. Dean - Phil Butler and I are on the same page that the US is milking the North Korean event for the ultimate goal of placing its anti-ballistic missile shield right where it has always wanted it, in Russia's back yard and China's front yard.
Jim W. Dean - The dishonesty and lunacy of the West was on front row display in the run up to the Zapad war game exercises in Belarus this year. The same old worn out, fake claims were trotted out.
Jim W. Dean - The SAA struggles logistically with too many key tasks that all need to be done right away, like clearing ISIS from Deir Ezzor, widening the airport perimeter, and getting its forces west of the Euphrates to keep the Kurds from taking the oil fields there.
Do remember, the Vietnam War was stopped, not by “peaceniks” but by combat veterans who hit the streets, people like John Kerry or, to a lesser extent, me. That these movements survive in a small way, in reality dissent has been criminalized in a world of fake information and even more fake leadership.
So the Trump White House is really on the ball now. After suddenly discovering what North Korea has always been, it has done the same with Pakistan, and is trying to cover its essential ignorance by saying how unhappy it is about it.
Jim W. Dean - I knew almost nothing about my Confederate heritage until 1996, when I found mother's Culpepper genealogy book at her house. So I was a late bloomer, and have since tried to make up for it
Jim W. Dean - The last month has seen a shift in the progress of the war that even the most stalwart anti-Assad powers, like the Saudis, can no longer deny. Putin just signed the formal Russian legislative papers on the 50-year rights to its current bases in Syria
Jim W. Dean - Christopher Black shows his roots in this piece with its historical framing, and reminds us once again that the people who make the wars are alive and well only because we allow them to be, when so many others have suffered at their hands.
Jim W. Dean - We have had an undeclared World War of sorts being carried out against Syria with even the UN hesitant to face up to it, mainly because it is a major violation of the UN charter and international law, making them look like a joke.
If the feeling of pity would be worth a damn one would be tempted to feel sorry for the hapless Poles.
Phil Butler explains: The Real Winner of the Arab Spring: The changes wrought by the Arab Spring are likely to be of long-term benefit to Israel. The EU is sinking under austerity and added pressure from the refugee crisis, and somehow nobody looks at who is benefitting? If there is any real justice in the world, then Israel’s role in all these conflicts will be revealed.
Jim W. Dean - The G20 executive members came out swinging, but did not wait until the meeting began. Major “perception management” moves were put into motion, including full-spectrum government planning and media-seeding during the lead-up to the meeting.
It's becoming crystal clear to more and more European citizens that the monster that is Brussels today does not represent the true interests of EU citizens. The unspeakable crime of Viktor Orbán is his insistence on acting in the interests of his citizens, not to the self-declared, arrogant unelected Commissars in Brussels.
Jim W. Dean - Personally I don't consider Ukraine to even be a real country, simply because it imports foreigners and gives them instant citizenship to fill major government positions. Only a cartoon-comic book country would do such a thing.
For over past hundred years, West Asia has been the theatre of conflicts and proxies. Most countries in the conflict did so due to history, dynasties and religion that attract attracted invasions from North Africans, Romans, Byzantines, Persians, Turks, French, Germans and Anglo-US forces. Since 1930s, petro dollars have provided the impetus.
When I served in Vietnam, there was no pretense that we were defending anything. Even in the elite combat unit I was in, the war itself was universally opposed as comic and absurd. We were clearly fighting people who were defending their country from foreign invaders, the real enemy, “us.”
