It was at a minimum a ballsy, arrogant move, – sending a government minister into another nation to stir up some extra votes.  It reeked of disrespect for national sovereignty! So the Dutch sent the Turkish Minister of Families and Social Policy back where she came from.  Now embarrassed,  Turkey’s arrogant President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan […]

“Allahu Akbar!” In Ankara

December 19th, 2016

Assassin in a western suit – shoots Russian Ambassador. This will not lessen Russian aid for Assad,  – but it will remove any lingering shreds of mercy about Russian air strikes.

The pathetic rust-bucket should have been scrapped decades ago, – but this relic of the old Soviet Union is sailing – very slowly – off to war in the Middle East. Pity the 1,500 crew and airmen. Putin’s immediate goals are to crush ISIS,  secure Assad’s hold on Syria,  and neutralize Recep Tayyip Erdoğan – […]

20 minutes with the smartest and best-informed guy in the room! Almost all of this will go right over the heads of Hillary and Bernie people,  – they don’t even understand where these places are or who the players are…. Democrats are ignorant  – thanks to 40+ years of Union School Teachers! Since Newt isn’t […]

There is a fine art and exact science to staging a military coup,  – and it looks like this generation of Turkish generals hasn’t learned it. General Evren must be spinning in his grave…. There are strict but unwritten rules for staging coups,  – and the current crop of Generals either never studied them,  – […]

Is another of Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood buddies about to visit the inside of a jail? Early reports of gunfire in Ankara,  military jets flying low over the city,  as the military moves to oust ISIS-friendly President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  Can’t wait for the wise words of SecState Lurch…. And then we’ll suffer through the ‘wisdom’ […]

The centuries-old arm-wrestling match between Turkey [occupies strategic choke points] and Russia [frustrated military giant who wants Mediterranean access] continues. While this single act will likely be resolved,  these two stubborn players are inching the world closer to a nuclear war…

If you ~ thought ~ you understood the ongoing war in Syria, – you probably didn’t.   Almost every day now a new wrinkle is revealed, – and there ain’t none of them pretty. Within days of Turkey downing a Russian Su-24,  – and ‘rebels’ on the ground killing the Russian pilot,….’somebody’ [Russian jets?] bombed a […]

It couldn’t happen to more deserving would-be Muslim Caliph!   Voters on Sunday rejected his request for more one-man control of government. America, Israel, and the Middle East need to beware; – a rebuffed Caliph can be a vengeful and vindictive bastard. He’ll need to find a bogeyman – and deflect attention.  Our air bases […]

Obama’s Syrian Problems

June 14th, 2013

1. He doesn’t understand the issues or the players. 2. He’s afraid to act [He’s a pussy!].  3. He really doesn’t care….    4. He can’t blame Bush!  5. He’s afraid of what Putin might do…. He can’t ‘lead from behind’ without allies ready to lead from the front. He can’t ‘fix’ this problem the way he […]
