Looked and sounded classy

"US Policy Toward the Levant, Kurds and Turkey" by Joshua Landis.  Perfectly sensible advice but it doesn't advance Yinon so President Jared won't go for it.

The best thing about all this is that President Jared just isn't very smart, so all his clever ideas directly from the settlers are going to backfire:  "‘He wants to kill us’— Gazans fear for the worst as Trump severs aid to Palestinian refugees" (Kabariti).

"Trump Admin Commits to Forever War in Syria against Iran" (Cole).  The specific orders from Tel Aviv to President Jared on the blue and white hotline would be to block perceived Iranian influence in Syria by whatever means are still available, no matter how insane.

"The US-Assisted Evacuation of IS Militants from Syria – a Rerun of Operation ODESSA" (Minin).  Excellent analogy.

"In words and deeds: the genesis of Israeli violence" (Baroud).  The Khazars have been remarkably consistent over time.

Tweets by Esha on simply the most progressive man who has ever lived, the sainted Barry.  Also:
"You mean the good old days under Obama who dropped 26,171 bombs on 7 countries in a single year and nobody really gave a damn because he looked and sounded classy while doing it?"
"Inspector General: Awans Used "Unauthorized Access" To Transfer Congress' Data To Stolen Server" (Durden).  You have to love that they physically stole the server in the middle of the 'investigation'.

"What If Bannon Is The Architect Of The Whole Bannon-Trump Fight?"  "Steve Bannon refuses lawmakers' questions under 'White House instructions'".  "Bannon in the Chair" (Marshall).  'Flubbed'?

"The Literati’s Scourge of Putin and Trump" (Sniegoski).  Gessen has one problem with Putin, her perception that he is too close to traditional Russian religious leaders and thus has the wrong attitude on gay rights, but that issue wouldn't get her any traction, particularly in the United States, so she has constructed an entirely mythological view of Putin as dangerous imperialist totalitarian.

"KAL 007: What the U.S. Knew and When it Knew it" (Husseini).  Note the ad for 'Zero Net Migration'!

The worst!:  "The Cotton Doctrine: More Wars, Less Security" (Preble).

Predictable spin on Hello, Newman news:  "Senior Democratic Staffer: ‘We Do Not Care About Anti-Semitism’".

"Photographer starts petition against OxyContin billionaires".
