Despite some of his “America First” rhetoric – tossed in as red meat to his “base” – Trump revealed a global outlook that differed from the Bush-Obama neoconservative/liberal-interventionist approach in words only. In substance, Trump appears to be just the latest American poodle on Bibi Netanyahu’s leash.
In a marathon interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the uncorroborated anti-Trump dossier, refused to identify the political clients that commissioned the salacious document.
President Donald Trump opened the door on Monday night to an increase in U.S. troops in Afghanistan as part of a retooled strategy for the region, overcoming his own doubts about America’s longest war and vowing “a fight to win.”
Trump, in a prime-time televised address at a military base near Washington, said his new approach was aimed at preventing Afghanistan from becoming a safe haven for Islamist militants bent on attacking the United States.
Trump represents a deviation from the main line of American policy.
In this sense, he is an unexpected candidate, a candidate who does not represent either a republican or a democratic party, as they existed during the last 60-70 or even 100 years. He is largely inconsistent, but nevertheless the algorithm of his election campaign was expressed in the model of realism in International Relations.
American politics and economics depend on warfare. War is necessary for the United States in terms of ideology, politics and economics. That is why the US military-industrial complex is one of the most influential forces in the state.
Lavrov said that the risk of military conflict between the U.S. and North Korea are quite high. It is also worth noting that, according to information released today the new White House administration there is a discreet channel of communication with North Korean leadership, but that did not help current relationships between the United States and the DPRK.
Reports say that North Korea again launched its missile on a very highly lofted trajectory, which allowed the missile to fall in the Sea of Japan rather than overflying Japan. It appears the ground range of the test was around 1,000 km (600 miles), which put it in or close to Japanese territorial waters. Reports also say the maximum altitude of the launch was 3,700 km (2,300 miles) with a flight time of about 47 minutes.
The Trump administration has decided to halt the CIA’s covert program to equip and train certain rebel groups fighting the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, two U.S. officials said, a move sought by Assad ally Russia.
Bannon’s reading eventually led him to the work of René Guénon, an early-20th-century French occultist and metaphysician who was raised a Roman Catholic, practiced Freemasonry, and later became a Sufi Muslim who observed the Sharia. There are many forms of traditionalism in religion and philosophy. Guénon developed a philosophy often called “Traditionalism” (capital “T”), a form of anti-modernism with precise connotations.
The DPRK has successfully tested a new version of its Intercontinental ballistic missiles Hwaong-14.
The rocket has successfully overcome a height of 2 000 km and flew a total of 930 kilometers in the direction of Japan.
Pyongyang has traditionally stated that it will continue to develop its missile and nuclear program to put an end to American threats of nuclear war.
Grinning broadly, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un delighted in the global furor created by his nation’s first launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile, vowing Wednesday to never abandon nuclear weapons and to keep sending Washington more “gift packages” of missile and atomic tests.
It was a laser-guided bomb that the Russians supplied to Syria. We had the intelligence of a meeting and we planned for it, we planned for it days in advance. It was coordinated very carefully. Everybody: us, the UK, the NSA, the CIA—everybody knew there was going to be a meeting there. In fact Russia even contacted our intelligence people, our CIA through a liaison I guess (I don’t know how), that there was going to be a secret meeting and if we had an asset there, if there was somebody we owned at that meeting, get him out of there because it’s going to be hit.
In this case, their hypocrisy has practical reasons. The rate of advance of the SAA in Central and southern Syria is frankly not pleased with the Washington, as Damascus will not only greatly extends the controlled areas and helps to cut off the southern group of the United States from Central Syria, but also helps to build a Shia Crescent from Iran to Palestine.
“It was a totally Trump show from beginning to end,” the senior adviser said. “A few of the president’s senior national security advisers viewed the mission as a minimized bad presidential decision, and one that they had an obligation to carry out. But I don’t think our national security people are going to allow themselves to be hustled into a bad decision again. If Trump had gone for option three, there might have been some immediate resignations.”
A new proposal by an anti-Trump Democrat on the Federal Election Commission would expand the federal government’s probe into alleged Russian influence to foreign companies and internet sites that take political ads, like Facebook or the Drudge Report, while giving the FEC an unprecedented role that some say oversteps its authority.
The same foreign lobbyists and Russians tied to the Trump probe were once associated to Senator John McCain when he ran for president. Sen. John McCain, always the political maverick, recently bucked his own Republican Party by refusing to defend President Donald Trump in the Russia investigation and even suggesting the matter was reaching epic proportions.
Moscow, Syria’s main ally, announced that it would start tracking jets and drones of the US-led coalition and halt an incident-prevention hotline with America, which was set up to avoid accidents in the crowded skies above Syria.
“Any flying objects, including planes and drones of the international coalition, discovered west of the Euphrates river will be tracked as aerial targets by Russia’s air defences on and above ground,” Russian President Vladimir Putin’s defence ministry warned.
The truth is Washington’s imperialism and the hegemony of its petty family oil-rich dictatorship proxies in the PERSIAN Gulf are clearly in disarray. Indeed, this a wonderful development and geopolitical karma in action. It is a worldwide phenomenon and Washington and her allies’ discord will only increase with every move they make. Such is the price for an unsustainable, idiotic, and essentially diabolic foreign policy. No one will be mourning for them. More disintegration is to follow in the Washington-Riyadh-Tel Avis axis of evil. Stand by.
Now Trump is making his first foreign tour. And again a surprise. The first foreign visit is this time not to Mexico and the countries of Latin America, which is the custom of American presidents, and not to Russia, for example, but to Saudi Arabia, the country that is the main sponsor of ISIS (banned in Russia) and Islamic terrorism. What logic we are dealing with here? Neither Trump number 1, nor Trump number 2. Who are You Mr. Trump?
US President Donald Trump will give a major speech on the Islamic faith during his upcoming visit to Saudi Arabia, home to the religion’s holiest shrines, the White House said Tuesday.
“He will meet and have lunch with leaders of more than 50 Muslim countries, where he will deliver an inspiring, direct speech on the need to confront radical ideology and the president’s hopes for a peaceful vision of Islam,” National Security Advisor HR McMaster told reporters.
