UAE Withdrawal from Yemen
03.08.19 12:35 Middle East
The announcement that the UAE is in the process of a large-scale military drawdown in Yemen has been met with rapturous applause by the Ansar Allah’s supporters who believe that this unofficially acknowledges their victory in the conflict, but these celebrations are premature because the vast majority of the country’s territory still remains outside of the armed group’s grasp even if most of its people reside in their region, and the most politically realistic solution to the war entails the institutionalization of the state’s deep divisions via the implementation of a “federal” model that de-facto restores the Old Cold War-era independence of North and South Yemen.

On 11 January 2018, a closed-door meeting of representatives from the USA, France, the UK, Saudi Arabia and Jordan took place in Washington where a plan to redraw the Middle East borders and partition of Syria to influence zones were discussed…

Syria: War of All Against All Continues…
27.11.15 10:46 Middle East
I wrote this text some time ago in order to capture the conflict’s Big Picture and, especially, the coincidence and clash of interests of all the major participants. The whole slew of recent events, including the downing of the Russian airliner over the Sinai, the Paris terror attacks, and the shoot-down of the Russian Su-24 bomber over Syria by Turkish fighters, have made these relationships stand out in starker relief, but they also served to realign them. Therefore it is time to revisit this text and provide a few updates.

Did Russia’s Intervention Derail Turkey’s Plan to Invade Syria?
15.10.15 19:38 Middle East
Thousands of Iranian soldiers have arrived in Syria to join a major offensive against Sunni militants located in the northwest section of the country. The Iranian ground forces will be part of a joint operation that will include the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Russia and fighters from Lebanese militia, Hezbollah. The assault comes on the heels of a withering two week aerial bombardment of enemy positions by the Russian Air Force which has wreaked havoc on US-backed jihadis along the western corridor. The mobilization of Iranian troops indicates that the 4 year-long conflict is entering its final phase where the Russian-led coalition will attempt to crush the predominantly-Sunni militias and restore security across the country

The Greater Middle East in the face of earnest geopolitical changes
08.08.15 21:27 Middle East
The current developments in the Greater Middle East provoke many experts and analysts to reflect their genuine nature, since this the most important subregion reaches a point of bifurcation after which it would hardly be affordable to turn the flow back.

Can Syria Survive?
14.06.15 11:17 Middle East
It’s a dangerous equation in the Syrian war that the further you are from Damascus, the more Bashar al-Assad’s regime seems doomed. And the more you drive around the vast area still held by government forces – and I’ve just completed around 1,100 miles of mountains, desert and battle fronts – the more you realise that the war will go on

Why Islamic State Is Winning
24.05.15 17:02 Middle East
The Saudi-Israeli alliance and U.S. neocons have pressured President Obama into continuing U.S. hostility toward the secular Syrian government despite major military gains by the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front, leading to an emerging catastrophe in the Mideast, as Daniel Lazare explains

Secret Pentagon Report Reveals US "Created" ISIS As A "Tool" To Overthrow Syrias President Assad
24.05.15 05:19 Middle East
From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the worlds stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the worlds terrorist bogeyman, we suggested that the "straight to beheading YouTube clip" purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one: use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose of Syrias president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which could dethrone Russia as Europes dominant - and belligerent - source of energy, reaching an interim climax with the unsuccessful Mediterranean Sea military build up of 2013, which nearly resulted in quasi-world war

Why Israel Should Not Exist
20.05.15 03:12 Middle East
By suggesting that the state of Israel should not exist, I am not being anti-Semitic. I am, however, being anti-Zionist. There is a distinct difference. An anti-Semite is someone who is prejudiced against Jews. An anti-Zionist, on the other hand, is opposed to that sector of the Jewish population who see it as their God-given right to establish a Jewish state in the Holy Land at the expense of the Palestinian people who have lived there for two thousand years

Saudi Arabia Does a Gaza in Yemen
25.04.15 05:20 Middle East
Shortly after 911, Washington declared ‘war on terror’ – a war with a death toll of over 2 million innocent lives (not counting America’s drone hunts), the maimed, the refugees, as well as the environmental effects of America’s war on terror
