Animals, shithole countries... he has a Teflon back when it comes to this stuff... because, I think, a lot of Americans actually like and agree with it. So while the leftists are in hysterics over Trump's latest controversial remark, millions of others are cheering him on. This is how he got elected ... Read more

Think about it this way: the very existence of Syria as an independent state, along with all others created under Sykes-Picot, is a symbol of failure for the Turks.

“There is hardly anyone left in the region that is prepared to look on Iran with a sense of mercy anymore, because it has contributed ... Read more

How embarrassing. Even worse is that many probably believe he deserves it.

"Iran is not fundamentally opposed to the idea of talking with other powers on the Syrian issue, but that it wants its interests in Syria to be recognized"

None of the Western powers will do anything to legitimize Iran's regional interests. Russia will use Iran's interests for its own benefit but w ... Read more

They should have a right to protest, but at the same time they know Israel doesn't respect that right, and therefore that it's dangerous. It certainly doesn't seem to help them achieve their goals.

'Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered an “influence campaign intended to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency.”'

I'd be interested to see some examples of the denigration campaign against Hillary ... Read more

'"There is water and wealth under the feet of Iranians wherever they are," he said'

There's plenty of oil, but I don't know about water.

It is sad, but the Arabs sold them out from the very beginning, before Israel even existed, and they made some terrible decisions themselves. That situation allowed the Jews to easily move in and take over. These protests over an embassy move are just madness. As with Iran, I like to focus on person ... Read more

Europe considers standing up to US sanctions? I'm sure they considered it for about ten seconds, then realised that the risk of doing business with Iran under sanctions would be too high.

Anyway, it is not the EU officials who decide whether the risk of business with Iran is worthwhile - it is the ... Read more

We trust these people because they are our only hope, they are seen as sitting on the side of peace, as every media outlet - mainstream and alternative - is suggesting. But are they really? How can we seriously trust these people? Any objective analysis of the situaion should indicate that Europe ca ... Read more

It depends what is meant by "save".

Essentially, it now comes down to Iran. If Iran is willing to remain committed to the deal despite the reimposition of sanctions and withdrawal of Western businesses, then the deal - what is left of it - will stand. If Iran is not willing to accept that situation ... Read more

Well, Kuwait did just try to pass a UNSC resolution. It was of course vetoed by the US. But anyway, the Palestinians have been abandoned by the world, including their closest relatives.

Even if European governments tell their businesses that it is safe to trade with Iran, most won't risk it. They are packing up and leaving as we speak. The promises are hollow, and may even conceal a secret trans-Atlantic conspiracy.

Protests in Iran aimed at improving the country are dangerous, but a worthwhile undertaking, but these protests against Israel are only for those with a deathwish. Noone will stop the massacre. The other Arab states care about Palestinians in word only, and Iran only cares because it hates Israel. W ... Read more

Interesting narrative. Israel and Saudi Arabia won't be dragging the US into anything. The US uses its middle eastern clients for a highly effective cover of plausible deniability. Since the authori of this article is taking a big picture view from the 1980s until now, I can do the same. In that tim ... Read more

I just added up the total estimated deaths of Palestinians at the hands of their various opponents from 1920 until now. It's not a pretty picture. However, take a look at the number of Iranians murdered by the mullah regime - supposedly some of the biggest champions of the Palestinian people - since ... Read more

"shield European companies from U.S. sanctions that threaten billions of dollars of investment."

Unless the US makes some kind of exception I don't see how this is possible. And why would they make exceptions? It would make the sanctions pointless.

Nah... this is all a ruse. The Europeans want to ... Read more
