Iran infiltrated US military, obtained proof of ISIS collusion

1396/6/29 | 12:14
  Iranian Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) operatives managed to infiltrate US military command centers and obtain documents allegedly proving collusion between Washington and ISIS terrorists in the region, a top Iranian commander claims.     The claim was made by IRGC Aerospace Force Commander Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh on Friday during a TV interview.“We have documents showing the behavior of the Americans in Iraq and Syria. We know what the Americans did there; what they neglected and how they supported Daesh [Islamic ...

US paradoxes and Pakistan’s war against terrorism

1396/6/29 | 12:14
  News reports of a tripartite (Pakistan-Afghanistan-US) meeting in Kabul ‘to eliminate IS’ is just another example of the paradoxical, one-step-forward-two-steps-back approach that has typified this war effort.    Just the other day Trump all but dumped Pakistan as an ally and heaped criticism on Islamabad, prompting a possible strategy reset spearheaded by Foreign Minister Khwaja Asif, for allegedly harbouring American, and Afghan, enemies. Perhaps they had this round (of talks) because Trump did not mention IS in the speech?     So ...

US’ Black Hawk Down in Yemen

1396/6/27 | 12:14
    A United States Black Hawk helicopter crashed off the southern Yemeni coast in late August leaving six US army officers stranded in Yemen.   Five elite soldiers were rescued after the crash and a sixth officer was reported “missing” in war-torn Yemen. This crash did not resemble the US’ Black Hawk Down incident of 1993 in Somalia – nothing like it. It has all the hallmarks of a US creeping mission to Yemen.     The elite soldiers on board the aircraft were “supporting Operation Inherent Resolve”, ...

US Plan for New Afghan Force Poses Threat to Civilians

1396/6/26 | 12:14
  The Pentagon and the Afghan government, in a move intended to increase the size of Afghan security forces without spending too much money, are poised to approve a new irregular combat force, with estimates it could number in excess of 20,000 fighters.   Both groups have dispatched delegations to India to examine the structure of the Indian Territorial Army, an irregular force created for deployment in certain areas where the regular military’s presence would be unpopular.   Afghans are unlikely to welcome this idea, however, because ...

Has Trump become a leader of Arab nationalism?

1396/6/26 | 12:14
  The developments of the crisis with Qatar have revealed the depth of the abyss the entire Arab world is descending into.   New aspects and dimensions are being added to it daily. Since this crisis, which surprised the GCC, the only fort left of the crumbling Arab system, has gone on for more than three months; it seems that it is heading for more complications and escalations rather than towards resolution. This raises fears of the Arab world growing gradually closer to the moment it hits the bottom of the abyss.   Perhaps the strangest ...

Is China using North Korea to break US's Super power's myth?

1396/6/26 | 12:14
  The firing by North Korea of yet another missile that overflew the Japanese mainland on Friday 15th September has ratcheted up tensions yet again.  While few days ago a hydrogen bomb was detonated in an underground tunnel and pictures suggest that the device is small enough to fit on top of one of the missiles currently having the sea as their target.   Given the impermeability of the regime in North Korea, it is difficult to know whether the leader, Kim Jong-Un, is of sound mind or otherwise. There appears to be an emerging ...

US policy shift: Would Pakistan turn into another Iran for US?

1396/6/26 | 12:14
The Trump administration is considering dropping Pakistan as an ally as it examines tough measures to quell more than 20 terrorist groups it says are based in the country, a UK publication had reported.   Financial Times reported that officials familiar with the Pakistan prong of Washington’s new “AfPak” strategy — which involves an open-ended commitment in Afghanistan and praise for India — say it has yet to be fleshed out. But they have plenty of levers.   President Donald Trump last month promised to get tough on Pakistan, ...

Guilt of war crimes: Suicide among US war veterans highest in west

1396/6/26 | 12:14
  Newly released US government data shows suicide rate among military veterans as considerably higher in western and rural parts of the country, further indicating that female and older veterans are at higher risk and that social isolation, gun ownership and limited access to health care are likely factors. The new figures are the first-ever Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) data on suicide that show wide state-by-state disparities, demonstrating that states such as Montana, Utah, Nevada and New Mexico have had the highest rates of veteran ...

The United States and Russia rejected the request of Israel to keep Iran far from the Syrian border

1396/6/25 | 12:14
  Haaretz urged Russia and the United States to refrain from any ceasefire agreement in Syria with the presence of Iran or its united troops in southern Syria near the occupied Palestinian state.   Israel raised this demand during talks that took place before the July ceasefire agreement, which has been faced with Russia's opposition.   Senior Israeli Cabinet ministers refer to the US-Russia deal on Syria as a strategic failure of the highest level. “The United States threw Israel under the bus for the second time in a row.   The ...

Why US is not happy with Deir Ez-Zor’s recapture from ISIS?

1396/6/25 | 12:14
  The Syrian forces, backed by an array of allies, keep fast advancing in Deir ez-Zor fronts against ISIS terrorist group, raising hackles of the Americans who decided to deploy the Washington-backed militias to the strategic city in a bid to not fall behind the other actors in competition in eastern Syria.   The Deir ez-Zor city is located in Syria’s east and is considered a gate to the neighboring Iraq. Major part of the city, except for some small neighborhoods, fell to the terrorists in the initial stages of the Syrian conflict ...

Netanyahu is the Israeli Trump

1396/6/25 | 12:14
  The Zionist white supremacist alliance continues apace. It is quite hard to keep track of the increasing connections, both in the US and in Israel.     The increasing scandal over US President Donald Trump’s white supremacist advisers has finally resulted in some change. Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka are both out. This is to be welcomed, but it should not be forgotten that Stephen Miller is still in place as a senior advisor. Miller was the key architect of the failed “Muslim ban”.     It should ...

Paradiagm shift: Pakistan’s big ‘No” to US aid

1396/6/25 | 12:14
  Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said that Pakistan will not beg for the American aid.   "We do not need American aid but Pakistan's sacrifices against terrorism being recognized," the foreign minister said and referred to the losses of Pakistani military officers during fight against armed groups and financial losses the country has suffered. "Pakistan have fought anti-terror war with own resources," he said in an interview with a news channel.     He was talking about US President Donald Trump's remarks that the US ...

We will sink Japan and turn US to 'ashes and darkness', says North Korea

1396/6/25 | 12:14
North Korea has threatened to sink Japan and said the US should be “beaten to death like a rabid dog” after the two countries spearheaded fresh UN security council sanctions in response to the regime’s recent nuclear test. The Korea Asia-Pacific peace committee, which oversees North Korea’s relations with the outside world, described the UN security council, which passed a new round of sanctions on Monday, as a “tool of evil” in the pay of Washington, and called for it to be broken up.   It is the first time that Pyongyang ...

China Backs UN Call for Justice in Yemen; US, Saudis Object to Move

1396/6/24 | 12:14
Calls by the UN human rights chief to set up an international inquiry into war crimes committed in the Saudi War in Yemen are nothing new. A sudden endorsement of the move by China may give this effort a new lease on life, however, after being quietly killed in recent years.   This is the third straight year right chief Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein had made such a call, and the last two times, the US and Saudi Arabia buried the idea, agreeing the Saudis could investigate themselves in the war. The civilian deaths have continued to mount.     The ...

Diplomacy of visits: Can Pakistan pursue US to review new Afghan policy?

1396/6/23 | 12:14
  Khawja Asif has embarked on visit of China’ Russia’ Iran and Turkey. In his  meetings with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Javad Zarif ended with agreement that the war in Afghanistan can only be ended through a negotiated conflict and such problems are better addressed by regional countries who have a much bigger stake in Afghanistan’s stability.    This is essentially the position Pakistan has long held, and after securing China’s support, Pakistan now has Iran on board. In the last few years, ...

Did China hold back Pakistan to take stand on Rohingya’s genocide?

1396/6/23 | 12:14
  International divisions emerged on Tuesday ahead of a UN Security Council meeting on a worsening refugee crisis in Myanmar, with China voicing support for a military crackdown that has been criticised by the US, slammed as “ethnic cleansing” and forced 370,000 Rohingya to flee the violence.     Beijing's intervention appears aimed at heading off any attempt to censure Myanmar at the council when it convenes on Wednesday.China was one of the few foreign friends of Myanmar's former junta.     Beijing has tightened ...

Challenging CPEC: Is US agreed to fund Chabhar port secretly?

1396/6/22 | 12:14
  Afghanistan's foreign minister asked India on Monday to expedite development of a strategic port in Iran to bolster a trade route for land-locked Central Asian countries that would bypass Pakistan.     The port would allow India to transport goods to Afghanistan by sea. Pakistan currently does not allow India to transport through its territory to Afghanistan.Last year, India committed up to $500 million for the development of the Chabahar port along with associated roads and rail lines.     Indian External Affairs ...

Republicans feel Trump’s dagger on their back

1396/6/22 | 12:14
  On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump sided with Democratic Party leaders Sen. Charles Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, on a short-term deal to fund the government, raise the debt ceiling and provide aid for the Hurricane Harvey victims.     The Republican Party had agreed on a plan before meeting with the president to raise the debt limit to 18 months and add it to the $7.8bn disaster relief for the Hurricane Harvey victims that Trump had requested.     The Democrats had their own version of ...

Why most Pakistanis dislike US?

1396/6/21 | 12:14
  Pakistan's new foreign and national security policy apparently would now be based on 'No More’, when it comes to 'Do More’, though we know what we have to do for ourselves. One of the reasons why most Pakistanis dislike the US is merely because of its repeated betrayal and distrust.     There is a history of almost 60 years of disappointment in Pakistan from the US. What it needs to understand is the fact that Pakistan is not part of the problem, but a solution to the problem. The problem came as a result of the US policies ...

Declassified CIA Docs Say Hitler Was Alive and Well in Argentina in the 1950s

1396/6/20 | 12:14
  Declassified files show that in 1955, the CIA's Western Hemisphere Division (WHD) chief received a secret memo, boasting a subject line that no doubt caused him to jump up from his chair, and spew any liquid in his mouth across the room — "Operational: Adolf Hitler."   As the shocking title implies, the acting station chief in Venezuela claimed to have received a once in a lifetime tip from one of his contacts — a decade after his apparent death by suicide in the Fuhrerbunker, Hitler was in fact very much ...

Irma Is Being Described As A Nuclear Hurricane That Has Left One Island Practically Uninhabitable

1396/6/20 | 12:14
  Irma is not just another hurricane – it is a history making storm that is going to cause up to a quarter of a trillion dollars in damage once it makes landfall in the United States.   In fact, Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine used the term “nuclear hurricane” to describe this storm to the media. I would never use that term personally, but I am in agreement that it would be exceedingly difficult to overstate the danger that this storm represents.   According to the National Hurricane Center, Irma has been a category ...

Riyadh may have sponsored 9/11 'dry run': New lawsuit data

1396/6/20 | 12:14
New evidence in a lawsuit, which holds Saudi Arabia responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks, shows that the kingdom may have funded a “dry run” prior to the incident. The lawsuit alleges that the Saudi embassy in Washington paid for two Saudi nationals, living undercover in the US as students, to fly from the city of Phoenix to Washington “in a dry run for the 9/11 attacks” two years before their occurrence, the New York Post reported on Saturday. Lawyers for the plaintiffs said the new details had painted “a pattern of both ...

North Korea calls Nikki Haley a “prostitute”

1396/6/20 | 12:14
  North Korea threatens US will pay for Ms Haley’s rhetoric. In response to the US ambassador Nikki Haley’s speech at UN early in the week, North Korean Central News Agency which is run by the government, called her a “prostitute” who is a “blind fool”.       “She is crazily swishing her skirt, playing the flagship role in Trump administration’s hideous sanctions and pressure racket,” said the Korean news agency. “Nikki should be careful with her tongue though she might be a blind fool. The US administration ...

State Dept Approves $3.8 Billion Arms Sales to Bahrain

1396/6/19 | 12:14
The US State Department has approved $3.8 billion in weapons sales to the tiny island nation of Bahrain. The Pentagon confirmed the approval and the State Department has notified Congress, who held up a similar sale last year over Bahrain’s many, many human rights problems.     The $3.8 billion sale is almost entirely going to Lockheed Martin, who will be providing 19 F-16V fighter jets, along with substantial upgrades to the nation’s existing fleet of F-16s. Raytheon will be selling 221 anti-tank missiles to go with it. Sales to ...

North Korea Threatens EMP Attack On U.S. For First Time Ever

1396/6/19 | 12:14
North Korea has, for the first time, threatened to wage an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack against the United States. Such an attack has the potential to cause catastrophic damage to North America, Canada, the West, and many of its neighbors.     North Korea threatens to wipe out the United States on a regular basis through its state media. However, this is the first time North Korea has openly threatened to use an EMP weapon.   According to the Associated Press, shortly after North Korea launched its sixth nuclear test ...

Paradigm shift: Is US out in Pakistan’s new foreign policy?

1396/6/18 | 12:14
  Pakistan on Thursday hinted at bringing a ‘paradigm shift’ in its foreign policy in view of the fast-changing situation on regional and international fronts, particularly after the new US strategy on Afghanistan and South Asia.       Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, while speaking at a news conference, said the change was necessitated by recent developments “which are perhaps the biggest since the World War II”.   While he said Islamabad was not seeking confrontation with the US, he made it clear that ...

Erdogan criticizes US for charging ex-minister over Iran bans

1396/6/18 | 12:14
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has denounced as “politically motivated” the US prosecutors’ recent charges against a former economy minister accused of violating US sanctions on Iran, calling on Washington to review the move. "I say clearly, I see this step taken against our former economy minister [Mehmet Zafer Caglayan] as a step taken against the Turkish republic," Erdogan told reporters in Istanbul on Friday before departing for a visit to Kazakhstan.     ...

Trump orders US military to shoot down North Korean missiles

1396/6/18 | 12:14
US President Donald Trump has ordered military to shoot down any missile launched from North Korea and heading toward Guam or the United States. Sources close to the White House national security team told Newsmax on Thursday the order was issued to the US military in the wake of last month's threat by North Korea to fire a ballistic missile toward Guam, a US territory.  "The threat provoked the president," one source told the news agency. Another national security source told Newsmax that Trump also is considering a new "shoot down" ...

CIA Document Outlines Plans To Infiltrate Schools And Brainwash Children

1396/6/17 | 12:14
  Memos from the CIA Inspector General’s office reveal how the agency had planned to saturate the media with U.S. propaganda by brainwashing prospective journalists at a young age.   CE reports: It’s from 1984, approximately three decades prior to when the Agency declared Wikileaks a hostile non-state intelligence service. It shows how the CIA viewed the media the same way.   Are organizations like Wikileaks really a threat to National Security? Or are they simply a threat to a small group of powerful people who make ...

Fanatics in face off: Increasing threat of nuclear war

1396/6/17 | 12:14
  On Sunday, the North claimed to have tested a hydrogen bomb. While all these moves by the isolationist regime are indeed troubling, the response of the US — Pyongyang’s primary foe — has hardly been measured. For example, the US president has threatened the North with “fire and fury” should it attack America.     Aside from the fact that the relationship between Pyongyang and Washington has been characterised by decades of mutual hostility, at this time both states are headed by men who regularly indulge in provocative bluster.      For ...

US evacuates 22 Daesh commanders from Dayr al-Zawr: Report

1396/6/17 | 12:14
Reports coming out of Syria suggest that US aircraft have evacuated 22 Daesh field commanders in Dayr al-Zawr as government forces are advancing against the Takfiri militants in the eastern city. A military and diplomatic source told Russia’s Sputnik news agency on Thursday that the terrorists were taken to “safer regions” in the face of “successful actions by Syrian government troops in the eastern part of Syria in late August.” The first evacuation operation took place on August 26, during which a "US Air Force helicopter" ...

BRICS declaration: Would China support India against JeM in United Nations ?

1396/6/16 | 12:14
  Let there be no doubt about it. The BRICS’ resolution on terrorist networks is a serious matter. So far only the US, India and Afghanistan had publicly accused Pakistan of harbouring terrorist groups.   Now the same view has been expressed by the BRICS countries albeit in a polite but unambiguous language. What should worry Pakistan is that even China – which had repeatedly blocked India’s attempts to have the JeM leader Masood Azhar put on a UN Security Council blacklist – has signed the resolution.      Just ...

Can North Korea Target a US City? Experts Say Not Yet

1396/6/16 | 12:14
Very public advances in North Korea’s missile and nuclear weapons technology has raised a lot of concerns. Among the biggest concerns is that this might conceivably allow North Korea to target cities on the US mainland, but can they?   Probably not. North Korea will of course claim such capabilities for the deterrent effect it would have, but there remain many questions surrounding North Korea’s ICBM technology, and its ability to accurately deliver a payload that far. North Korea’s successes have included a new nuclear detonation, details ...

Israeli-syllabus school set up in Syrian area controlled by armed groups

1396/6/15 | 12:14
  An Israeli-US organisation has set up a school in the northern Syria governorate of Idlib, which is under the control of armed groups, Russia Today reported on Monday.     The Israeli syllabus is being taught in the school, with textbooks intended to provide Syrian pupils with a different perspective about Israel.     An Israeli news website reported that the school has 90 Syrian pupils and 15 teachers. It is an addition to two similar schools which have been established in areas controlled by the armed groups ...

Why US refuses to send F-16 trainers to Turkey, blocks Pakistan’s help

1396/6/15 | 12:14
  Commenting on the recent US refusal to heed Ankara’s request for F-16 training pilots to help replace airmen dismissed after last year’s military coup attempt and Washington’s move to prevent Pakistan from assisting Turkey, retired Turkish Lt-Gen Erdogan Karakus explained to Sputnik Turkiye what might be the reasons for this decision.        The US has rejected Ankara’s request to send F-16 training pilots to prepare new airmen in the wake of an array of dismissals following after last year’s military coup ...

What does US military deployment mean around the world?

1396/6/15 | 12:14
  The US military forces are deployed in more than 150 countries around the world. These forces are deployed between land, sea and air, and vary according to their areas of presence and their importance to the American interests.     Although it is difficult to give specific numbers to US military personnel abroad, various data from the US Department of Defense indicate that there are currently 150,000 and 560 soldiers serving in foreign countries, but this number does not include many countries where Washington does not reveal ...

US: Many Options for ‘Total Annihilation’ of North Korea

1396/6/13 | 12:14
Just days after saying that he doesn’t believe the US is ever out of diplomatic options, Defense Secretary James Mattis took on a more militaristic tone today, saying that the US may not be looking toward the “total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea,” but that the US has many options to do that.   Mattis made the comments after a White House meeting, which he said was called because President Trump wanted to be briefed on his “many military options” for attacking North Korea. He added that the US will use a “massive ...

North Korea claims its 'hydrogen bomb' can 'wipe out the whole US territory'

1396/6/13 | 12:14
  North Korea has declared that its recent nuclear test has given it the capability to "wipe out the whole territory of the US all at once".   The bombastic claim was made in a commentary released by state-run media on Tuesday, six days after what North Korea claims was a successful test detonation of a hydrogen bomb. The statement repeated the regime's insistence that the blast was of a miniaturised hydrogen bomb and that the nation's scientists had achieved a "new high state" in the development of defensive nuclear weapons.   "The ...

US siege on civilians in Syria aimed to overshadow resistance’s achievements: Iran

1396/6/13 | 12:14
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has slammed the United States’ move to impose an aerial blockade on buses carrying women and children as part of a deal between the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement and the Daesh Takfiri terrorists. “The US move to lay a siege to women and children seems to be illogical given the country’s history of cooperation with Daesh [terrorist group],” Qassemi said on Sunday. There is a “fundamental difference” between fighting armed Daesh terrorists and the killing of innocent people, ...

Islamophobic hate crime in US; Muslims are threatened with acid attacks

1396/6/12 | 12:14
  Following the rise of Islamophobic attacks in US in recent months, Muslims of Bradford has been threatened by receiving letters. West Yorkshire police said they were taking the threats “extremely seriously” and had increased surveillance in Hanover Square, a predominantly Muslim area in Manningham, an inner-city area where at least two residents were targeted last week. Bearing the image of a sword and St. George’s flag, one of the letters reads: “Kill scum Muslim.” It then goes on to question the reason behind Islamic women ...

As Ties Worsen, Pakistan Foreign Office Says No High-Level Contact With US

1396/6/11 | 12:14
US-Pakistan relations have been trending downward since President Trump’s speech on Afghanistan, in which he blamed Pakistan for giving “safe havens” to terrorists. This has fueled an angry back and forth, and some anti-US protests within Pakistan.   Despite these mounting concerns, Pakistan’s Foreign Office says there has been no high-level contact between the Pakistani government and the US government regarding their differences on the Afghan War, with the only real talks between the US Ambassador to Pakistan and the Pakistani ...

New Cold war: Indo-US-Afghan VS Pak-Sino-Russian axis

1396/6/10 | 12:14
  Pakistan in a sign of growing maturity, is taking a firm leaf out of the US book on diplomacy and alliance building. Meaning that it is putting national interests first and is not afraid to shop around to secure those.       And so it was that this week that Pakistan took receipt of four advanced attack helicopters, or Mi-35M. This is not insignificant. For it was only back in 2014 that Moscow lifted its arms embargo against this country, which had been in place since the beginning of the Soviet-Afghan war. Fast-forward ...

Pakistan, US in war of words

1396/6/10 | 12:14
A war of words has ensued after US President Donald Trump’s policy speech, with the US State Department repeating the do-more demand and Pakistan reiterating its ‘have-done-enough’ stance.   The US State Department was quoted by the media as having said that terrorists’ havens existed on both sides of the Pak-Afghan border, demanding Pakistan eliminate them on its side of the border.   Meanwhile, Pakistan’s army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa told a four-state meeting in Tajikistan on Sunday that Pakistan had cleared its ...

US, Israel ‘masterminding’ weapons supplies to ‘terrorists’ in Syria

1396/6/9 | 12:14
  An investigative reporter who claimed to have discovered a covert scheme “masterminded” by the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia and UAE to supply weapons to Daesh and Al-Qaeda terrorist groups under the watch of the CIA and NATO, has been sacked by her employers for what she describes as “telling the truth about weapons supplies to terrorists”.     Bulgarian journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhiev claims she was dismissed after being interrogated by security forces following her report that “at least 350 diplomatic …flights transported ...
