Article: Europe's Left: Triumph or Trap? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: Europe's Left: Triumph or Trap? - Following the policies of the Troika sentences countries to permanent debt, rising poverty rates, and a growing wealth gap. Portugal has one of the highest inequality rates in Europe, and Spain's national unemployment rate is 21 percent, and double that among the young. Greece's figures are far higher.

Syrian women left behind condemn men who have fled to Europe

Syrian women left behind condemn men who have fled to Europe | Global politics | Scoop.it
One woman interviewed in a refugee camp in Syria accuse men fleeing to Europe of abandoning the country in a time of crisis, while others saying it is 'haram' - forbidden under Islam - to leave.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

I wonder who is funding them to leave. I wouldn't be surprised it the same who fund the "outsiders" in. On the other hand those male "refugees" flooding Europe, it is obvious they have given up the sharia regime they actually would love.  Probably many of them participated in the war on the side of the "rebels", and now they assume their Islamist cause is lost, and so they leave. To make trouble in Europe? Most likely, they don't look like hard working people.

A Syrian Breakthrough

A Syrian Breakthrough | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Russians and their Syrian allies have cut the main supply line of the rebels to the north of Aleppo, the Azaz corridor. In our last report, we wrote about the Azaz corridor:
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Supply the rebels via Hatay? Too late, Alepo will be liberated before. As for Obama's cautious "neutrality", I would say it is rather forced. He isn't a peacemaker, he is engaged in more wars than any POTUS before. But in Syria he lost the nerve because Russia is too determined and he knows Russia will face any eventuality in order to prevent the takfiri takeover of Damascus. For him to increase the pressure is too dangerous, and his generals aren't enthusiastic at all. They all prefer acrobatics in Eastern Europe, but are preparing the withdrawal from the Middle East. Too unpredictable, too many madmen (there is no short supply in the US, but they are homebred).
Ah, and don't forget that another richest man in the world was once Fidel Castro too!

What Russian Orthodoxy Wants From Pope Francis

What Russian Orthodoxy Wants From Pope Francis | Global politics | Scoop.it
Although the Patriarchate of Constantinople holds a place of honor among the fourteen canonical Orthodox Churches, it is the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC), the world’s largest, that has emerged as the leading spokesman for Orthodox Christians.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

For all my sympathy to the Russian Church, I don't think modernisation without secularization is viable. It never worked before, and the Church of Rome has understood it, and shown the Church can flourish as separate from the state, in a more pure state... The Russian Church itself failed under the tsars to the enterprise of modernization, so has the Greek Church in Greece, as it is rather a burden than a force of progress. As for other religions, well, we see how Islam survives in a time warp and blocks any kind of progress, even violently when an elite attempts to modernize the country (see Syria, Libya...). Iran as a Persian and Shiite country, with an enlightened tradition, is an exception, but it would develop more resolutely if it became a secular state.

Hillary Is the Candidate of the War Machine

Hillary Is the Candidate of the War Machine | Global politics | Scoop.it
There's no doubt that Hillary is the candidate of Wall Street. Even more dangerous, though, is that she is the candidate of the military-industrial complex. The idea that she is bad on the corporate issues but good on national security has it wrong. Her so-called foreign policy "experience" has been to support every war demanded by the US deep security state run by the military and the CIA.

Russia Has Destroyed the CIA's Arms Smuggling Operation in Syria

Russia Has Destroyed the CIA's Arms Smuggling Operation in Syria | Global politics | Scoop.it
Let's cut to the chase: The closing of the Azaz corridor, a major supply artery for the "moderate rebels" in Syria, should be viewed as a crippling military defeat for the United States.As analysts have pointed out, US Secretary of State John Kerry repeatedly implored Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to keep the Azaz corridor open.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The New York Times now explains why Kerry was so anxious:

 

 

Mr. Kerry enters the negotiations with very little leverage: The Russians have cut off many of the pathways the C.I.A. has been using for a not-very-secret effort to arm rebel groups, according to several current and former officials.

M of A - The Race To Raqqa Is On - To Keep Its Unity Syria Must Win

M of A - The Race To Raqqa Is On - To Keep Its Unity Syria Must Win | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The Saudis would fight under the control of the one brigade of the 101st airborne that was not announced to go for Mosul. The Saudis would deploy from Saudi Arabia likely via a U.S. controlled airstrip in west Iraq towards Syria while the brigade from the 101st would probably deploy from the Kurdish area in north Iraq through the Kurdish areas in north-east Syria towards Raqqa. Raqqa would thereby be attacked from a north-eastern and a south-eastern. The airport of Rumeilan/Abu Hajar would be one of the major supply bases.

Such a move of forces would be quite large and over relative long distances. But most of the area is desert and modern motorized military equipment could easily cover those distances in a day or two. This would put Saudi troops into Syria. If they would take Raqqa or Deir Ezzor and the eastern Syrian oilfields they would NEVER let go of it unless Syria would bend to the Saudi demand of introducing an Islamist led government.

The plan is workable but it would also instigate a large mobilization of Shia forces and could lead to a bigger conflict. The Russian Prime Minister Medvedev warned today that new Arab forces entering the Syrian war could spark a much wider war.

Iraq Is Dead Set Against a Saudi Invasion of Syria

Iraq Is Dead Set Against a Saudi Invasion of Syria | Global politics | Scoop.it
With Saudi officials continuing to talk up the idea of sending special forces, and potentially a full contingent of ground troops, into Syria to fight, they are getting their first public push-back, as Iraqi PM Hayder Abadi warns the move would be a “dangerous escalation” of the war. 
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Bahrain refuted the news it would join the Saudis in Syria. It is normal, because the House of Khalifa, even though they are tributary to the House of Saud, they are scared to death of their own population, which happens to be Shiite to the 80%, and are fed up of the ruling masters. So they prefer to keep aloof. As for Iraq, a Saudi intervention in Syria is untolerable, so the danger of a general war in the area is real. I doubt the US would encourage such madness, and lose more allies.

Saudi Arabia Intervening in the Syrian Civil War Would Risk Russian Wrath

Saudi Arabia Intervening in the Syrian Civil War Would Risk Russian Wrath | Global politics | Scoop.it
The suggestion by Saudi Arabia that it send ground troops to Syria might mean the limited deployment of Saudi special forces alongside their US counterpart or a more ambitious intervention, probably in combination with the Turkish army.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Neither Erdogan pasha nor the Saudi princes are Julius Cesar. If they cast so recklessly the dice, they will be smashed to smithereens, and NATO will look aside. And both Houses of Saud and of Erdogan might fall. Most of the world would rejoice.

There's A Special Place at The Hague for Madeleine Albright

There's A Special Place at The Hague for Madeleine Albright | Global politics | Scoop.it
Former U.S. Secretary of State under Bill Clinton Madeleine Albright thinks there is “a special place in hell” for young women if they don’t vote for Hillary Clinton.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The Serbians saved her from the Nazis, but in 1999 she was a ruthless warmonger against them, even on the basis of falsified war propaganda. Oh yea, she is a monster.


Carl Osgood 

There is a character in Dante's Inferno who is so evil that his soul is already in hell
even though his body, now inhabited by a demon, still walks the earth. Perhaps this
explains Madeleine Albright, too.
