The Road to Moscow Goes Through Kiev: The Protests in Ukraine Transformed into a Coup That Can Target Russia
25 February 2014 | The takeover of power in Kiev by the mainstream opposition is a coup that has been executed by force, which overlooks the opinions of at least half of the Ukrainian population. Yet, you would not know this from listening to such media outlets and networks as CNN or Fox News or reading the headlines being produced by Reuters and the state-owned British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The events in Kiev are misleadingly being billed and framed by these media sources and the so-called “Western” governments they support, either directly or indirectly, as the triumph of people power and democracy in Ukraine.

16 January 2014 | There were mixed reactions after it was announced by Gilad Sharon, the son of Israeli former Prime Minister Arik (Ariel) Sharon, from the Chaim Sehba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer that his father had passed away in his hospital bed on January 11, 2014.

Volgograd and the Conquest of Eurasia: Has the House of Saud seen its Stalingrad?
4 January 2014 | The events in Volgograd are part of a much larger body of events and a multi-faceted struggle that has been going on for decades as part of a cold war after the Cold War—the post-Cold War cold war, if you please—that was a result of two predominately Eurocentric world wars. When George Orwell wrote his book 1984and talked about a perpetual war between the fictional entities of Oceania and Eurasia, he may have had a general idea about the current events that are going on in mind or he may have just been thinking of the struggle between the Soviet Union and, surrounded by two great oceans, the United States of America.

The meaning of western-Iranian rapprochement
1 November 2013 | There are signs that Iran’s relations with western countries, particularly the United States, are experiencing fundamental changes. Iran has begun new rounds of negotiations on its nuclear programme. There are economic, financial and technical reasons that are pushing Iran to accept the international conditions. The USA, meanwhile, seeks to avoid a military confrontation with Iran. If the parties reach a final and lasting solution on the nuclear issue, the improvement of Iranian-western relations will reflect on the regional balance, especially in light of regional disagreements on Egypt and the aggravation of the Syrian crisis.

Obscuring the Details: A Panoramic Look at America’s Case Against Syria
15 October 2013 | The US federal government and the various agencies, media organizations, individuals, foreign governments, non-governmental organizations, lobbies, forces, and other entities that are tied to it have done everything in their power to obscure the details involving the chemical attacks in that took place in Syria on August 21, 2013. The aim has been to justify the US-led foreign campaign that was launched against Syria in 2011 by making the Syrian government appear culpable of grievous crimes.

Syria: Protesting alone is not enough to stop the war

Yinon’s Revenge? A Panoramic of Chaos in the Arab World

The Media Deception About the Bombings in Lebanon
26 August 2013 | There has been an ongoing information war being fought for hearts and minds inside and outside of the Middle East. The war has mostly been tied to Syria. As the US and its allies begin to focus their attention on Hezbollah in Lebanon, the media war now includes the events in Lebanon. This, however, has not stopped the media attempts to depict the fighting in Syria in sectarian terms as a regional war between Shias and Sunnis or to demonize Syria’s allies…

Israel is fighting a regional war in Syria
1 June 2013 | The changing internal situation in Syria is putting a new set of plans into motion, which involve Israeli aggression against Syria. Not only have the US and its allies been trying to militarily buttress the retreating anti-government militias, but now they aim to create a new phase in the conflict where states start asserting leverage against Syria in place of the weakening anti-government forces. In other words, external pressure is being applied to replace the declining internal pressure.

The Syria Endgame: Strategic Stage in the Pentagon’s Covert War on Iran
7 January 2013 | Since the kindling of the conflict inside Syria in 2011, it was recognized, by friend and foe alike, that the events in that country were tied to a game plan that ultimately targets Iran, Syria’s number one ally. [1] De-linking Syria from Iran and unhinging the Resistance Bloc that Damascus and Tehran have formed has been one of the objectives of the foreign-supported anti-government militias inside Syria. Such a schism between Damascus and Tehran would change the Middle East’s strategic balance in favour of the US and Israel.
