The Whole Game is About Containing Russia-China

The Whole Game is About Containing Russia-China | Global politics | Scoop.it
The next BRICS summit, in Goa, is less than two months away. Compared to only two years ago, the geopolitical tectonic plates have moved with astonishing speed. Most BRICS nations are mired in deep crisis; Brazil’s endles political/economic/institutional debacle may yield the Kafkaesque impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
If "elected", Clinton 's first action as she becomes the latest Dynast in the White House will be to launch war on Damascus. Her logic is not only her "hawkish" neocon ideology and thirst of full-spectrum dominance, but an urgent "reason of state". War would silence her email/Foundation scandals and help her escape impeachment. However Damascus with the Russian help is able to defend itself. But the US war establishment and Clinton will leap forward into the abyss, confident of the American exceptionalism and the fear they inspire as destroyers of the worlds. Their/her MAD recklessness is only too consistent and too dangerous to let it go.

What Happens in Gitmo Stays in Gitmo: How CIA Buries its Dirty Secrets

What Happens in Gitmo Stays in Gitmo: How CIA Buries its Dirty Secrets | Global politics | Scoop.it
What does the US government do when they can neither charge nor acquit a tortured person? Evidently, they leave them to die. Radio Sputnik’s Brian Becker discusses the case of Guantanamo inmate and torture victim Abu Zabaydah with whistleblower and former CIA agent John Kiriakou.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
US-made justice. After President George W. Bush stepped down from office, President Barack Obama was inaugurated, and it was Obama's order, just weeks after the inauguration, to reopen the case against Kiriakou. Remarkably, Kiriakou was not informed that the case had been reopened.

Turkish Military Clashes With Syrian Opposition Groups

Turkish Military Clashes With Syrian Opposition Groups | Global politics | Scoop.it
Turkish armed forces battling against opposition groups in Syria are operating in territory that no longer belongs to the Daesh, US Department of State spokesperson John Kirby said in a briefing on Monday.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Turkey is crossing the US-set red line. They will find it more difficult as the local militias, Kurdish and Arab, oppose them, the Turks are marching to a powder keg, they will bite the dust and provoke a larger Kurdish resistance even within Turkey. Ankara has chosenb to jump over the cliff.

Journalist ‘Worried’ Next President May Order Assassination of WikiLeaks Founder

Journalist ‘Worried’ Next President May Order Assassination of WikiLeaks Founder | Global politics | Scoop.it
Anti-Media’s Jake Anderson wrote a chilling opinion piece on Friday speculating that what he calls the escalation of “anti-WikiLeaks propaganda” may open the door for the next President to order the killing of Julian Assange.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
If Hillary R. Clinton is "elected", her first action after taking possession will be to attack Syria, as the best way to silence the emails/Foundation scandal and to escape impeachment. Assange assassination will be perpetrated as a by-product.

Behind the Smokescreen: What Turkey is Aiming For in Its Syrian Campaign

Behind the Smokescreen: What Turkey is Aiming For in Its Syrian Campaign | Global politics | Scoop.it
Amid an intense Turkish military offensive in northern Syria, experts wonder what it is that Ankara is actually after there: while its operations have been carried out “under the guise of fighting against Daesh”, speculation exists that this has little to do with the real motive.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
“Turkey wants to protect itself from its own Kurdish population, and from being obliged to treat those Kurds with basic dignity,” Read more: http://sputniknews.com/middleeast/20160828/1044715013/turkey-us-syria-kurds.html

Real Propaganda: NY Times Says Kremlin Uses Sputnik, RT as Disinformation Weapon

Real Propaganda: NY Times Says Kremlin Uses Sputnik, RT as Disinformation Weapon | Global politics | Scoop.it
They conveniently forget to mention the fact that they are implicitly lobbing slanderous allegations of treason against US journalists in just such a disturbing fashion as to chill free speech.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The Western media have become bar exception a wooden tongue. They all parrot the same script for each White House (foreign) policy, and there is no outlet daring to question it. RT and Sputnik are hateful to these media, faithful servants of the Palace, because they provide another opinion, that the Western readership can check, and compare. It is ominous for the establishment because they lose the monopole of information (read misinformation).

Hillary Clinton's Slanders on Trump, Putin 'Absurd, Dangerous' - Ex-US Diplomat | Global politics | Scoop.it
US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s attempt to falsely portray her Republican opponent Donald Trump as a racist extremist is absurd, silly and dangerous, former US Department of State diplomat Jim Jatras told Sputnik.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Tensions rise following the first death of a Turkish soldier at the hands of US-backed YPG Kurdish forces with whom American Special Forces are often embedded.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The Turks are out of their mind. They are going into an unwinnable war and all they do is to extend their domestic war. They will be bogged down for a long time. And the Americans show their right hand doesn't know what their left does. Pathetic, so exceptional.
