Not Happy

"What If? An Alternative Strategy for 9/12/2001" (Sjursen).  Of course, the current 9/11 is listening to those calling for a war on Iran (and Hezbollah), #Russiagate, continued war in Afghanistan, hanging around as the last guy at the party while the host turns out the lights in Syria, and numerous mini-wars in Africa and the Middle East.  The election of Trump in large part represented a mandate to stop this consistent pattern of stupidity, yet here we are.

"Jews and American Wars" (Atzmon):
"I am not critical of people who avoid wars or even escape the battlefield. I would just suggest that if you do not plan to give up your life in a war, make sure that your Lobby doesn’t push for one."
"World Chaos Diagnosis: Acute Zionist Infestation" (Butler).  "The Zionist-Wahhabis are gearing up for a new war" (Mirzaei).

Paul Jay interviews Larry Wilkerson:
 "I’m not sure Russia will be willing to step into that one, because I think that would be propitious for Putin to stand on the sidelines and watch the United States, mainly because of Israel and its commitment to Israel, and to a certain extent Saudi Arabia, get sucked into it. That’s exactly my expectation, that we are going to, as one headline had it the other day, be the Saudis’ proxy. The Saudis are going to fight Tehran to the last dead American, and the Israelis of course will fight Hezbollah to the last dead American. They’ll do a little bit better of the fighting, but that’s the way it will be. The Saudis are utterly incompetent at military operations. You’re seeing that in Yemen. They drop their bombs from so high altitude because their pilots are scared to death of getting hit by antiaircraft fire that the bombs go everywhere, schools, hospitals, churches. It is going to be, if it is going to be, an extremely brutal war.

Iran will respond probably asymmetrically. They will not exchange hardware with Saudi Arabia. They will send the Quds Force, now highly trained and highly capable, into the oil-producing regions of Saudi Arabia, where Shia mostly work, and they will stoke those Shia, and the kingdom, and Mohammad bin Salman, this consolidating of power crown prince will suddenly have a rebellion on his hands. This could really get bad. It can go bad really fast."
"Congressmen Pressed Obama To Pardon Spy Lawrence Franklin" (Smith).  Regarding an earlier iteration of the Khazar anti-Iran campaign in Washington.

"On the Kurdish Question" (Dabashi).

"How Israel is 'cleansing' Palestinians from Greater Jerusalem" (Cook).

"Israel has more legitimacy than US because the bible mentions Jerusalem, not New York — says David Harris" (Weiss).

"US Looks to Southeast Asia to Unleash its ISIS Hordes" (Cartalucci). Wandering American Salafist proxy army + color revolution (George, again!) = potential disaster.

Ben Norton tweets on Bayard Rustin.  "Is #TheResistance a CIA Front?" (Raimondo).

Jeremy Bentham goes for a spin:  "Self-Driving Cars And Deciding Who Lives And Dies - Sacrificing Your Family For The "Greater Good"".

PROFILES IN COURAGE, proving the Dems can fumble any possible issue. You get your pizza wherever you can find it:  "Ex-Clinton Foundation Official Tied To Chinese Kindergarten Embroiled In Bizarre Sexual Abuse Scandal".

Society pages:  "A Good Day in New York for a Former TV Anchor".  "Prosecutors Decline to File Rape Charges Against Police Leader’s Son".

A tweet to which someone replied:  "She's not Happy."
