Al-Qaeda is creating its most powerful stronghold ever in north-west Syria at a time when world attention is almost entirely focused on the impending defeat of Isis in the east of the country. It has established full control of Idlib province and of a vital Syrian-Turkish border crossing since July. “Idlib Province is the largest al-Qaeda safe haven since 9/11,” says Brett McGurk, the senior US envoy to the international coalition fighting Isis.
Dr. Aleksandr Dugin joins Alex Jones live via Skype to discuss what he believes to be the most critical force moving against Judeo-Christian civilizations across the world: Globalism.
Now the Price for fellow traveling with Stormfags comes due.
P.T. Carlo is joined by Nina Kouprianova to discuss the life and times of Alexandr Dugin and his ideas.
Magnier explains how the U.S. is aiming to partition Syria and Iraq by placing permanent bases in northeast Syria and why, despite a potential ally in the Syrian and Iraqi Kurds, the U.S. is unlikely to be able to cut off Bashar al-Assad from the rest of Mesopotamia for long.
Some wars America remembers, some wars we work to forget. William Hogeland gives a dramatic telling of the war that we have never really talked about, despite being the war that made us the global military power we are today. The Shawnee, Miami, and Delaware communities were robbed and devastated by a conflict they in no way provoked―and defeated by an American general named Mad Anthony, conquering land that President George Washington had long coveted. It’s a harrowing story, brilliantly told, and a radical re-look at the ragged collective of colonies who fought for their own liberty and then, once getting it, set out on the warpath, an empire bent on taking its neighbors’ liberty away.
On February 18, 2017, as part of its third European Conference, the Platypus Affiliated Society organized a panel discussion, “The Crisis of Neoliberalism,” at the University of Vienna. The event brought together the following speakers: Chris Cutrone, President of Platypus; John Milios, former chief economic advisor of SYRIZA; Emmanuel Tomaselli, of the International Marxist Tendency; and Boris Kagarlitsky, of the Institute for Globalization Studies and Social Movements in Moscow. What follows is an edited transcript of their discussion.
North Korea has finally tested (successfully) a new missile — and boy it is a doozy. After the April 15 parade, we called this missile the KN-08 Mod Odd and the KN-08 +/-. But North Korea calls it the Hwasong-12 and it contains a surprise: the brand-new “indigenous” engine that North Korea debuted in March.
It began with snarky Wonks ironically tweeting about North Korea, and then suddenly it became a terrifying nightmare for capitalist rat-pigs.

A very special, surprise episode: We make contact with YPG’s American in Syria, @PissPigGranddad. He talks to us about his current situation fighting ISIS with the men and women in the Kurdish forces, cannibalism, big changes coming under Trump, good dogs, and just how he ended up there in the first place.
What this missile brings to the table is a much higher degree of mobility, survivability and responsiveness than the Nodong. The Pukguksong-2 was tested from a cold-launch canister system carried on a tracked transporter-erector-launcher (TEL) vehicle, which would provide substantially greater cross-country mobility than the Nodong’s wheeled TEL.
In this episode we will look at the causes for the collapse of Aleppo, the battle of Deir er-Zor, Palmyra, and finally we wrapped up with a discussion on the Militant Group Ahrar al-Sham
In Washington, I asked an intelligence official in close touch with the Yemeni situation, who asked not to be named, what the Saudi plan had been at the outset. “Plan?” he replied in exasperated tones. “There was no plan. No plan at all. They just bombed anything and everything that looked like it might be a target. Trucks on a highway — that became a military convoy. Buildings, bridges, anything. When they did find a military target, they bombed it, and then went back and bombed it again.”

The esoteric Druze sect sprang out of Shia Islam about a thousand years ago. Some scholars say they absorbed ideas from Sufism, Greek philosophy and from Gnosticism. Ideas like the ‘Word/ logos’ and the ‘Nous/ universal mind’ are familiar in their teaching, hence being disowned by many Muslims.
And like the ruling Alahwi sect in Syria, many Druze also believe in re-incarnation (human being to human being only)- which is certainly not your run-of-the-mill Islam.
