Syria: FSA's Dangerous Enemy: Ilyas Mansour | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

He was killed by the orders of western leaders, with the western taxpayers' money, and those of their stooges, he was killed so Turkey's Erdogan's dream can materialize in becoming the Ottoman Sultan, so that Zionist israelis would have the ability to expand, he was killed so that Hollande, Cameron, Obama and their stooges get the satisfaction from their masters in their process for the New World Order and to form their One World Government where they enslave the One World Citizens, YOU FOOLS.

Why Vladimir rules and Obama bombs

Why Vladimir rules and Obama bombs | Global politics | Scoop.it
On both the NSA saga and the Syrian crisis, Putin played chess while Obama played checkers with himself – and lost.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

That famous September op-ed  in The New York Times, in which Putin blasted American exceptionalism, reverberated wildly all across the developing world because it worked like a primal scream. The Chinese, naturally cautious, would never be the first to articulate it so blatantly (they did it only later, when they called for a ‘de-Americanized’ world, with an economic emphasis rather than political). Forget about the Europeans, or even Brazil. Only Putin had the authority to announce what the overwhelming majority of the planet had been thinking for quite a while.

Zakaria: The Saudis Are Mad? Tough!

Zakaria: The Saudis Are Mad? Tough! | Global politics | Scoop.it
Why we shouldn't care that the world's most irresponsible country is displeased at the U.S.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

If there were a prize for Most Irresponsible Foreign Policy it would surely be awarded to Saudi Arabia. It is the nation most responsible for the rise of Islamic radicalism and militancy around the world. Over the past four decades, the kingdom's immense oil wealth has been used to underwrite the export of an extreme, intolerant and violent version of Islam preached by its Wahhabi clerics.

Why a religious war in Syria is impossible

Why a religious war in Syria is impossible | Global politics | Scoop.it
International mass media paint the situation in Syria as a never-ending Sunni-Shia feud and hatred towards President Assad. But somehow they keep silent on how thousands of Sunnis have found friends in the Shia-dominated Lebanese regions.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

“Why are you all asking whether we are the Sunni or the Shia? We don’t live or think like that. We’ve always lived quietly trying to avoid these kinds of problems,” the women say, confused.

They are outraged that the external world is stirring up a conflict between the Sunni and the Shia.

“Look, that man is a Shia, and we live next to each other just fine,” says Khadijah about their neighbor who’s been helping them.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
Médias francais : STOP AUX MENSONGES contre la Syriela survie de l’Arabie saoudite est en jeu depuis la nomination de John O. Brennan à la tête de la CIA, en mars 2013. Jadis en poste en Arabie, c’est un adversaire résolu du dispositif mis en place par ses prédécesseurs avec Riyad : le jihadisme international. M. Brennan considère que si ces combattants ont fait du bon boulot, jadis, en Afghanistan, en Yougoslavie et en Tchétchénie, ils sont devenus à la fois trop nombreux et ingérables.
