THE first thing for Western nations to do if they want to stop terrorism is to stop committing it. Rendition, torture, selective assassination by drone or hit squad and mass killing of civilians cause terror and create terrorists. We know that Daesh
Symbolized by French President François Hollande’s visit the other day to the Kremlin, one of the most stunning results of IS’s attacks in Paris was the immediate push it gave some members of the Western alliance to reach out to Russia. IS’s blood lust may have created the circumstances for the beginning of a potentially significant rapprochement between leery geopolitical areas. How far this rapprochement will go, remains to be seen.
The French will tell you that this month's ISIS attack inflicted the biggest death toll on Paris since World War Two. They would be lying. Fifty-four years ago, French police massacred hundreds of Algerians right in the heart of the city -- and then pretended it never happened. France has enslaved much of the world, and clings to its remaining semi-colonies. The government in Paris "has millions of deaths on its ledger."
A court in Istanbul on Thursday ordered two prominent opposition journalists jailed pending trial for alleging that Turkey's secret services had supplied arms to Islamist rebels in Syria, Turkish media reported.

I first realized that World War III was about to take place just before the Olympic Games in Sochi. The coverage of the games hardly mentioned the sports and competitions, instead, it was a non-stop demonetization of Russia and Vladimir Putin. I heard diatribes about how unprepared the Russians were to host the games, how much money they spent on them and how the games were bound to fail.
The real frontline confronting ISIS is not US or French bombers (the latter currently targeting Raqqa, a city with 140,000 civilians, who are virtual prisoners of ISIS) but the Kurds of Iraq and northern Syria. Just over a week ago the combined Kurd forces, under the command of the Yezidis, liberated Sinjar from ISIS. For"
In all of the bloodshed, population displacement and terror that has accompanied the Syrian civil war, the least-considered party has been the Syrian people and their future.Right now that vital ingredient can only be supplied by the reimposition of order by Damascus. The folks in Washington, Paris and Ankara might not like that, but they are not the ones facing a future of anarchy.
Two Turkish generals and a colonel were detained on Saturday for intercepting Syria-bound trucks that belonged to Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT), the newspaper Today’s Zaman reported.
Two weeks ago, the Syrian Arab Army's 4th Mechanized Division and Hezbollah abruptly halted their large-scale offensive in southern Aleppo, stopping just s
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Much of the success the Islamist rebels have experienced in northern Syria has come from their U.S. manufactured anti-tank TOW missile; however, with the Kontakt-5 ERA, the T-90 Tanks should be strong enough to endure the impact from the TOW missile.
