Over the weekend, Iran marked National Nuclear Technology Day. The stars of the show were going to be new advanced centrifuges at the Natanz uranium enrichment plant. Unfortunately, the stars did not shine and President Hassan Rouhani and his officials were left with a reminder of the previous time the […]
The aborted coup in Jordan has nothing to do with an internal rivalry within the royal family, even if it did find a leader. It is about opposition to Donald Trump’s questioning of the normalisation of Arab-Israeli relations and Joe Biden’s reactivation of a three-quarter century old conflict. Washington wants to resume the “endless war” in the greater Middle East.
Exactly a decade after the United States sought a pioneering role by Turkey for launching the regime change project in Syria, it has solicited help from Ankara in regard of another political transition in the Greater Middle East — in Afghanistan. Analogies never hold one hundred percent in politics or […]
The emergence of an Asian NATO is turning reality and very much visible. Although there has been no official claims on the formation of an Aian NATO, the actions taken on ground are quite indicative of the fact that the concept of the Asian NATO is already there. The Quad […]
In the past few months, Grayzone journalist Aaron Mate has interviewed two former ambassadors to Syria: former UK Ambassador Peter Ford and former U.S. Ambassador Robert S. Ford. The two ambassadors have a common surname but dramatically different perspectives. This article will compare the statements and viewpoints of the two […]
The reason for this is that the US refuses to learn from its mistakes contrary to its post-Trump rhetoric, which has resulted in scant progress being made in Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria, and Libya. The Biden Administration isn’t serious about bringing peace to the four countries in the so-called “Greater Middle […]
With the world’s largest oil export terminal coming under missile and drone attack — a giant Saudi Aramco complex capable of exporting roughly 6.5m barrels a day, nearly 7% of global oil demand — the war in Yemen surges in the global media. During the night on Saturday, the Houthis […]
Washington has little choice: its interests have not changed, but those of its ruling class have. Antony Blinken therefore intends to pursue the line adopted since President Reagan hired Trotskyists to create the NED: to make human rights an imperial weapon, without ever respecting them himself. For the rest, one will avoid getting angry with the Chinese and will try to exclude Russia from the wider Middle East so that the war can continue without end.
Every power worth its portion of salt in the Levant these days seems to be doing it. On February 25, President Joe Biden ordered airstrikes against Syria. The premise for the attacks was implausible. “These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and Coalition personnel in Iraq,” […]
It was a brutal way to go, and it had the paw prints of the highest authorities. On October 2, 2018, Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi Arabian insider turned outsider, was murdered by a squad of 15 men from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He was dismembered and quite literally cancelled […]
The Joe Biden Administration is expected to release the Central Intelligence Agency report on the brutal murder of the prominent dissident and well-known journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the premises of the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul in October 2018. ‘Top Secret’ documents implicating the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in […]
It was President Putin who led Russia and played a vital role in its revival. After the disintegration of the former USSR in 1991, it was a mega-disaster and collapse of the political system, leading to dissolution. The first thing President Putin realized the mistakes of the Communist Party and […]
