No Comment? Not anymore!
Here are some borrowed comments I picked up along the way to the promised land.

Lesser Israel


"Rather, Israel finds itself being deterred (rather than doing the deterring) by the knowledge that it cannot now overturn its strategic weakness (i.e. risk a three-front war) – unless, and only if, America will fully enter into any conflict, in support of Israel. And this is what worries the security and intelligence echelon: Would America now contemplate a decisive intervention on behalf of Israel – unless the latter’s very survival was at risk?

In 2006, Israeli officials recall, the U.S. did not enter Israel’s war against Hizbullah in Lebanon, and after 33 days, it was Israel that sought a ceasefire.

..."Israel is on a suicide mission (hasn’t it always?), and it very well may do something VERY stupid. Nature doesn’t support STUPID..."

"The very fact that the conference is taking place in Russia is a tribute to Putin’s statesmanship. And the fact that the U.S. is not engaged in the peaceful negotiation process is a clear indication of the impotence of American diplomacy."

Somehow Joe I believe American foreign policy has too many heads with no brains to coordinate a foreign policy that would disengage us from all the conflicts in the MidEast(even if they were motivated to do so). On the bright side(we’ll try to be optimistic), the same people vying for more belligerence have such big egos that they can’t agree on what to do next.

I’m more worried to what all those deadheads in DC will do, as they are all under the spell of Israeli bribes, and/or blackmail. Seriously, why wouldn’t the U.S. be glad that finally now ISIS is defeated, and this war in Syria and Iraq may becoming to an end? Well, before you answer that allow me to point out to you Netanyahu and his dreams of a Greater Israel, as if the first Israel was so great, as I digress. The U.S. is nothing but a gun for hire, and Israel has first right to it’s employment.

Joe, your note that the “U.S. is nothing but a gun for hire” recalls the once-inescapable 1980s lyrics:

“You can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire
Even if we’re just dancing in the dark”

The US is certainly the cheapest gun for hire in history, asking only a few billion in bribes and media control to steer trillions of war budget to kill millions of innocents for profit. All thanks to the economically-controlled fake democracy of the rich, whose mass media keep the US “dancing in the dark” in secret wars, fake elections, and betrayed ideals.

Perhaps Russia or China will be so kind as to simply buy out the US mass media, restore democracy to the US, and relieve us of the Israeli and KSA foreign agents in control of the USG.

For the US, the Middle East is secondary. It has been, and will continue to be, about Russia. The Middle East is about circling Russia. While the hardcore religious folks are aiming for and End of Times showdown (the big smackdown at the Temple Mount), the neocons are aiming for a final showdown with the only power that can challenge US hegemony: Russia. None of these “actors” can back down: the representative powers have no reverse gear; their very power is given by their ideological stances, and those stances have everything to do with that which I state. Sadly, Russia will be forced to do what it always has done: fight for its survival; which it has never failed at.

Delayed Comments

I don't have time to listen to everything here at Mami's, but I'd like to make a few comments on recent posts:

I particularly liked The Cult of Ugliness with Kyle Hunt on the Solar Storm: 2017.11.12. Kyle's talk on the national socialist view of the natural world was interesting as well.

I also like Inside The Eye Live Radio - 11.16.17 with The Fetch who gave us insights into the Saudi shakedown and the players involved.

I liked the realist report with John Friend and Russ Winter of The New Nationalist website: newnationalist.net

Russ accurately describes what it's like to be an activist these days.

I also liked Chris Kendall of Hoax Busters who talked with Tim Kelly about social engineering.
