Examining the Syria War Chessboard
Posted: Monday, January 25, 2016

US supports Saudi war in Yemen, says John Kerry

Syrian Civil War: Why the Endless Conflict Is at a Decisive Point
The Syrian peace talks between government and opposition will begin in the next few days in Geneva in an atmosphere of almost undiluted gloom about the prospects for success. The two sides hate each other and have spent five years trying to kill each other, making it unlikely that they will agree to share power in any way except geographically, with each side keeping the territory it currently holds and defending it with its own armed forces.

U.S. Relies Heavily on Saudi Money to Support Syrian Rebels
When President Obama secretly authorized the Central Intelligence Agency to begin arming Syria's embattled rebels in 2013, the spy agency knew it would have a willing partner to help pay for the covert operation. It was the same partner the C.I.A. has relied on for decades for money and discretion in far-off conflicts: the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The Empire Files: Examining the Syria War Chessboard
The war in Syria is an unparalleled crisis. It has gone far beyond an internal political struggle, and is marked by a complex array of forces that the U.S. Empire hopes to command: Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Kurdistan, Iran, Lebanon, Iraq and more. To simplify this web of enemies and friends, Abby Martin interviews Dr. Vijay Prashad, professor of International Studies at Trinity College and author of several books.

The CIA's Syria Program and the Perils of Proxies
Almost every aspect of the Obama administration's policy toward Syria has been scrutinized, lambasted or praised in recent months, but one of the most significant facets, the CIA's covert aid program to Syrian rebels, has largely slipped below the radar.

Joe Biden Says the PKK and the Islamic State Are Equal Threats to Turkey
US Vice President Joe Biden described the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) as a terror group "plain and simple" during a joint news conference with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in Istanbul on Saturday, suggesting that the militant group poses as much of a threat to Turkish national security as the Islamic State (IS).

Ahrar al-Sham, a hardcore amalgam of Wahhabi extremists and fanatical jihadis, withdrew from the anti-Assad confab because, according to the Washington Post: "some of its comments and recommendations have been disregarded at the meeting."

Destroying Syria to Create Sunnistan
What is the connection between the US bombing of a Syrian military base in Ayyash, Syria, and the Turkish invasion of northern Iraq? Both of these seemingly isolated events are part of a larger plan to Balkanize the Middle East, to strengthen Washington's grip on dwindling resources, to draw Russia into a costly and protracted war, and to ensure that ME oil remains denominated in US dollars.

Posted: Sunday, December 6, 2015

U.S. First Shields Its Torturers and War Criminals From Prosecution, Now Officially Honors Them
As vice president, Dick Cheney was a prime architect of the worldwide torture regime implemented by the U.S. government (which extended far beyond waterboarding), as well as the invasion and destruction of Iraq, which caused the deaths of at least 500,000 people and more likely over a million. As such, he is one of the planet's most notorious war criminals.
