John Kerry Gives In To Russia, Says Assad Can Stay In Power

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry gave in to Russia’s demand to allow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to remain in power Tuesday. Negotiations in Moscow between the U.S. and Russia have finally yielded some results.

Putin Calls for United Front against ISIS While Accusing Turkey of Supporting Terror

It is difficult to tell what is true and what is simply propaganda. But, it is very unlikely that it will end anytime soon. Russian Leaders have been openly accusing Turkey of collusion with ISIS. They are especially persistent on the fact of the Turks are buying oil from the terrorist group. This continued even as Putin called for international solidarity in the face of Islamic terror. Fox reports Russian President Vladimir Putin called Thursday for “one powerful fist” to fight terrorism, hinted Read more […]

Turkey Makes Demands While Russia Strengthens Air Defense in Wake of Downed Jet

Many times when international incidents occur, there are unseen motives involved. So, as one side takes actions against another in one area, they really want something done in another. This happens because the first country does not want all the world to know how much they are invested. And this seems the case with the downing by Turkey of a Russian jet. Fox reports Davutoglu also said Russia is an “important partner and tops the list of countries with which we have shown great sensitivity in Read more […]

Yes Turkey Shooting Down a Russian Jet is Obama’s Fault and Here is Why

Anyone who has had to teach or watch a group of children knows what happens when you leave them alone in a room. Those who have a beef with each other will find a pretense to start trouble with one another. The children are kept under control because of the fear they have for the authority in control. When that is removed, they become their own authority. Likewise, when you have countries involved with one another, there needs to be a level of fear in the group. There needs to be a lead country, Read more […]

France now Joins Russia in Unrestricted Bombing While America Plays it Safe

For almost a decade, the world has criticized the Israeli government for their airstrikes against Hezbollah. While the illegal terror organization deliberately hid among the populous, the Israeli pilots attacked all the same. This has proved devastating to the terrorists and the civilians alike. But this is how war has been historically fought since the invention of the bomber. Now, with both France and Russia mourning the mass murder of hundreds of their people in two separate attacks respectively, Read more […]

ISIS Video Claims that Russia is Next

We have had the foolish idea that the Muslims in the Middle East would never be able to take the world. They were backward and uneducated in comparison to the West. The idea that camel herders would push against Western backed nations was laughable. But now, four years after the civil war in Syria and the rise of ISIS, few are laughing anymore. Recently, Russia has joined the fight in Syria. This has drawn criticism from NATO leaders, and especially the U.S. They have claimed that the Russians Read more […]

Chinese, Russian Propaganda Lurking In Mainstream Media

Major U.S. newspapers regularly publish what often appears to be editorial content provided to them by Chinese and Russian propaganda outlets without disclosing that they are controlled by foreign governments. The Washington Post has distributed in its print editions two paid advertising supplements — China Watch and Russia Beyond The Headlines — that are owned and operated by their respective governments. The material is presented in a different format from the regular editorial and news Read more […]

U.S., Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey Meet to Solve the Syrian Puzzle

Four years and we are still not sure who is fighting and what they would have Syria be if they were to win.  But, the U.S. and Russia have clearly sided with their group and are once again opposed to one another.  The Russians claim that the only way to peace is through supporting the Assad government.  The U.S. claims that Assad must step down if there is to be peace.  And it is not hard to guess who the remaining regional powers are siding with; as they side with the group that matches their Read more […]

Relations Between Russia and Turkey getting Tense

For almost four hundred years, there has been conflicting between Turkey and Russia.  In the 18th Century, there was conflict over Crimea and the states of Georgia and Dagestan (Chechnya).  The conflict and political hedging between the two nations continued up until the end of the First World War.  The only thing that cooled the heated relations is that the Turkeys were ruled by Socialist leaning Kemal Ataturk. Over the last hundred years, the relationship has been further hampered by Turkey’s Read more […]

The Shifting Game Plan in Syria

There is nothing wrong with recognizing when something is not or will not work.  It happens.  Plans fail to come to our desired ends.  It is a part of peace, and it is most assuredly a part of war.  So, the idea that America wasted time, resources and lives on a plan is not the issue.  The main issue is that there was never much hope that it would succeed from the beginning.  The question is whether or not there has been a significant enough shift in our game plan. Fox reports  The U.S. Read more […]

Russia’s Boldness Continues as they Shadow American Drones

Amid much protest from America and her allies, Russia has continued to move military equipment into Syria.  They have also begun conducting an air campaign that the Pentagon has claimed was more aimed a CIA-backed rebels than at ISIS.  As, well, they have been accused of violating Syrian rival Turkey’s airspace.  But to show the world that they do not tarry special favors to the U.S. military, they have begun to use intimidation tactics on them as well. Fox reports Russian fighter jets shadowed Read more […]
