The BBC digs itself a very, very deep hole: Russian TV SLAMS Trump ‘Documentary’

One’s got a feeling that BBC knew about a forthcoming leak well in advance and was preparing itself for its coverage by shooting in all the right places in Moscow like Kremlin etc. If so, the whole set up looks like a provocation by the US and UK security services to undermine the legitimacy of the US President Elect. Russian political analyst Dmitry Drobnitsky remarks that the documentary drives at tormenting a sense of fear of the ‘gang of hooligans’, aka European and US right wing conservative forces.

Book Review – Losing Military Supremacy by Andrei Martyanov

THE SAKER—Surely when America fought against a third-rate adversary it was possible to rain death from the skies, and then roll over its forces, if any remained by that time, with very little difficulty and casualties. That will work in the future too against that type of adversary—similar in size and flimsiness of Iraqi Forces circa 2003. But Ledeen’s Doctrine had one major flaw—one adult cannot continue to go around the sandbox constantly fighting children and pretend to be good at fighting adults.

White House: US, Ecuador Coordinating About Future Of Assange Asylum

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—Why would the government granting political asylum to Assange be “in close coordination” about Assange with a government that isn’t interested in Assange?

He is being detained on threat of extradition and torture. The US-centralized power establishment really is that corrupt and depraved.

U.S. Government Continues Trying to Seize Syrian Territory

ERIC ZUESSE—Without this jihadist operation in Syria’s south, all that will remain of the U.S.-led invasion-occupation operation will be the northern part, which relies instead upon anti-(Syrian)-Government Kurds as the U.S. regime’s boots-on-the-ground proxy forces to seize the northern portion of Syrian territory. So, it’s the Sauds’ jihadists in the south, and the Americans’ Kurdish-independence fighters in the north — a pincer between the two, for the U.S. alliance to take all of Syria. But there is increasing doubt that the U.S. coalition will be able to seize and hold either portion, or, ultimately, any part, of Syria.

Freedom Rider: Democrats Unhinged by Korea

MARGARET KIMBERLEY—The Democrats like war, interventions and United States hegemony. They always have. If anyone wants proof they need only look at their collective hissy fit regarding the Trump and Kim summit. Part of the reaction is caused by fear of Trump getting credit for a foreign policy achievement. But Democrats are also true believers in imperialism. The last thing they want to see is any reduction in the American military presence in Korea or anywhere else.
