About the importance of moderation (a ‘thank you!!” to the mods)

There was an interesting comment posted recently on the Unz Review under one of my recent articles.  It said the following: Kiza’s comment mirrors something I did indeed observe: every time I post something at the Unz Review the exact same group of commentators immediately rush to post an X number of negative comments and the real conversation begins only further below.

Live from Baghdad: the secret of Iraq’s renaissance

by Pepe Escobar of the Asia Times (cross-posted by special agreement with the author) BAGHDAD – On a sandstorm-swept morning in Baghdad earlier last week, Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, the legendary deputy leader of Hashd al-Shaabi, a.k.a. People Mobilization Units (PMUs) and the actual mastermind of numerous ground battles against ISIS/Daesh, met a small number of independent foreign journalists and analysts. This was a game-changing moment in more ways than one.

AltRight vs The Saker

A very telling example of a very ugly trend I just got an email from my daughter this morning saying “You’ve probably seen this, and you might not really care even if you haven’t, but if not: https://altright.com/2017/05/05/the-saker-and-other-dissident-bloggers-are-completely-out-of-touch/.  Apparently, you lived in Iceland“. No, I had not read that as I generally have no time to read the AltRight nonsense.  Out of a sense of obligation I recently forced myself to

The Second Saudi Dynasty: MBS’s reset button

by Ghassan Kadi for the Saker blog Ironically, the first three words of my first article regarding the “War on Syria” were 1) Bandar, 2) Bin, 3) Sultan. http://intibahwakeup.blogspot.com.au/2013/09/the-anti-syrian-cocktail-by-ghassan-kadi.html Back in June 2011 when that article was written, Bandar Bin Sultan was clearly the head of the serpent and the architect of all attacks that were plotted and conjured up to destabilize Syria and turn her from the pivotal state

Trump’s Pivot to Asia – An Arms Sales Bonanza – An Anti-Peace Trip

by Peter Koenig for the Saker blog President Trump’s 5-country Asia tour has nothing to do with seeking peace anywhere, it has not even to do with diplomacy – it is entirely a warmongering business trip for the Military Industrial Complex. It is amazing that the world doesn’t catch on. We know about Obama’s several years of pivoting to Asia. It resulted largely in the TPP, the Transpacific Partnership, a
