TRUMP PRESIDENCY – first SNAFUs already

This article was written for the Unz Review: http://www.unz.com/tsaker/trump-presidency-first-snafus-already/ It is a rare privilege to be able to criticize a politician for actually fulfilling his campaign promises but Donald Trump is a unique President and this week he offered us exactly this opportunity with not one, but three different SNAFUs to report. First, there was the botched raid against an alleged al-Qaeda compound in Yakla, Yemen. First, let me commit

Is Russia’s Deep State In Civil War Just Like America’s?

Note by The Saker: as has been the case so many times in the past, I am posting an article with which I disagree, rather strongly, in fact, but which I find nevertheless worth posting precisely because it represents a point of view different from mine and because it asks some interesting questions.  My own two cents about all this is that the Russians are seeking opportunities to appear to

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps: a deep insight into Iran’s most powerful institution

By Aram Mirzaei Described by the Western media as a “shadowy organization” involved in “clandestine activity” across the Middle East, not much is truly known about the “Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps” (IRGC) in the West as Western governments and media outlets are having an increasingly difficult time figuring out the IRGC and the role it plays in both the domestic and foreign relations of Iran.

The Syrian conflict: An Iranian perspective on the Russian involvement and a potential Turkish cooperation

Foreword by the Saker: the latest article by Aram Mirzaei is truly a rare gem as it outlines an Iranian view on the conflict in Syria and on the Russian involvement in it.  As I, and others, have mentioned several times, Russia and Iran are de-facto allies in this war, but unlike AngloZionist “coalitions”, that does not mean that one is subordinated to the other and that there is only
