Look who is calling on GOP leaders to revoke their endorsements of Donald Trump!, Obama, the great clumsy Inspector Clouseau of all time foreign policy, this title fits his role in the White House since he has had no sense of what he wanted to do in the world as his foreign policy has not been leading anywhere but nowhere. Hey inspector, you are the last person on earth, whom with 8-years record of totally failed policies, the GOP members want to even listen to! Donald Trump responded to Inspector’s call, saying he has been a failed leader who along with secretary HRC created a foreign policy that has destabilized the Middle East, handed Iraq, Libya and Syria to ISIS, allowed our personnel to be slaughtered at Benghazi, made not only the region but the whole world unsafe, and concluded both of them are unfit to be president.
The democratic machine backed by the corrupt DNC, whose conspiracy against Sanders to make him the loser in the Primary election has been exposed by Wikileaks, and the Clouseau administration that are responsible for the last 8 years of failing of not only the U.S. but the whole world in all grounds, cunningly and insidiously are running a fixed election with the support of mercenary Medias to put their pathological liar, an inept slacker, and a dangerous-to-national-security, nominee, the criminal HRC, in the White House. America needs to wake up and stand against the on-going corrupt system to protect the endangered democracy and the will of the people, as they say, “A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves”. Democratic Party and their members under the guidance of the Clouseau administration have become the Muslim ass kissers; they misuse a Pakistani Muslim family in their conventional propaganda to create a bizarre ado about nothing in order to contempt the other Party and its nominee!
I am neither a republican nor a democrat, furthermore personally I am not a fan of Trump but what he said about the Islamic terrorists was in no way disrespect to the Muslim family and their son. However so long as there are American leaders like Inspector Clouseau in the White House and his former Secretary of State, the HRC, who in fact care for Islam more than Muslims themselves (as Persian proverb says,” A bowl which is hotter than the soup”) to the point of undermining the very driving force behind the act of terrorism across the globe, the Islamic ideology, we cannot expect the Islamic societies to unbiasedly confront the issue of Islamic terrorism.
The situation becomes more chaotic when the republican leaders join this coward voice of “Political Correctness” to appease the ideology of Islam and its followers. To those, including Clouseau administration, DNC and its members, and all republicans, who think that these barbarian acts of terror all around the world has nothing to do with Islam, I say “you are burying your heads in the sand”. The core of Islam is founded on Quran, without this book there is no Islam. There are 164 Jihad verses in Quran that are associated with the offensive war commanded to kill the pagans and humble, the Christians, and Jews, which is what is still in force today and are pursued by Muslims, allegedly radical Islamists. For genuine and authentic Muslims, religion is their everyday policy of life, and their everyday policy of life is nothing other than their religion. This is the point that the followers of “Political Correctness” are undermining.
So, why so much denial and perseverance on using “Political Correctness”? We have to go back to the “nation of sheep and government of wolves” notion to find the truth. It is because the western hegemony wants to accredit the imbecilic nations around the world by putting the Islamic chains around their necks as their slave puppets so that they can abuse their human/civil rights and facilitate plundering their natural wealth. What the puppeteers have undermined all along is the scenario when this “Political Correctness” becomes counterproductive and starts to backfire on them. Hasn’t the backfire already started to ignite?! [DID]
WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama skewered Donald Trump on Tuesday over his criticism of the parents of a Muslim U.S. Army captain killed in Iraq and said the Republican presidential nominee is unfit to succeed him in the White House. Mr. Obama, responding to a question at a news conference, also called on GOP leaders to revoke their endorsements of Mr. Trump rather than simply denounce his comments. “The Republican nominee is unfit to be president,” Mr. Obama said. “He keeps on proving it.
“The notion that he would attack a Gold Star family that made such extraordinary sacrifices on behalf of our country, the fact that he doesn’t appear to have basic knowledge around critical issues in Europe, in the Middle East, in Asia means that he’s woefully unprepared to do this job,” the president added.
In a statement, Mr. Trump linked his opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton, to the president’s record. “They have betrayed our security and our workers, and Hillary Clinton has proven herself unfit to serve in any government office,” Mr. Trump said. Read more…
My concern about Donald Trump being as the GOP nominee is fourfold, first it is with his trustworthiness, he blasts companies like Ford and Apple for manufacturing products outside the United States. He even threatened to stop eating Oreo cookies after he learned some production was moving to Mexico. But Trump does the same thing, his signature men’s dress shirts and ties are made in China, Bangladesh or “imported,” meaning they were made abroad. The Trump university lawsuit shows another trouble-example with his credibility, a hearing has already been schedule by the Judge in July 18, 2016. In the filing, the Trump University is accused of “persistent fraudulent, illegal and deceptive conduct,” false advertising, “operating an unlicensed private school,” refusing to provide mandated refunds, and other misdeeds.
Second, Donald Trump and the religious right are an unexpected match and his nomination could change the core trend of the republican party for good, a catalyst to loosen the stiffness of the establishment, which GOP may be in need of after all.
Third, trump’s ambitious presidential bucket list, such as rejecting NATO alliance may sound a bit naïve, an indication of lack of understanding of global order that has governed the world since the end of World War II to deter interstate conflict and thus maintaining global stability. Furthermore Trump’s primary objective in foreign policy is to extract cash from allies, he decries that the U.S. is protecting Saudi Arabia and not being properly reimbursed for every penny that is spent. He doesn’t see these alliances and commitments as security guarantees against global threats but fancy sorts of business deals. . As such, a Donald Trump president can make business deals with rogue states such as the theocratic regime of Iran and its terrorist mullahs, to him even human rights can be compromised and negotiated as long as the outcome is economically profitable.
And forth, the delegate math predicts that Trump will probably fall 50 to 100 pledged delegates short of the required 1237, however in the first ballot of convention in July 18-21 he may be able to compensate the shortage by convincing the super delegates to vote for him and become the GOP nominee. Regardless, by all kind of polls it has become evident that Trump as GOP nominee will lose national presidential election to Democratic nominee, either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. [DID]
President Barack Obama is trying but failing to reassure foreign leaders convinced that Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States. They’re in full-boil panic.
According to more than two dozen U.S. and foreign-government officials, Trump has become the starting point for what feels like every government-to-government interaction. In meetings, private dinners and phone calls, world leaders are urgently seeking explanations from Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Trade Representative Michael Froman on down. American ambassadors are asking for guidance from Washington about what they’re supposed to say.
“They’re scared and they’re trying to understand how real this is,” said one American official in touch with foreign leaders. “They all ask. They follow our politics with excruciating detail. They ask: ‘What is this Trump phenomenon? Can he really win? What would it mean for U.S. policy going forward or U.S. engagement in the world?’ They’re all sort of incredulous.” Read more…
Bunch of imbecilic mullahs in Iran who have no perception of the current global political and social trends in the world and have no respect for international norms and standards, all of a sudden, have become the Interlocutor in negotiation with World Powers. The theocratic regime in Iran pursues its Shia hegemonic ambitions by exporting terrorist proxies into regional States, it is the vast arms proliferator in the Middle East, its mullahs are the inventors of the suicidal bombers among the Islamic radicals, they are the interferers in Arab affairs and the regional countries, they are the agitators of the tribal and ethnic tensions, they are the advocators of regional instability, and they are the world’s worst human abusers. In short they have all the earmarks of being the most dangerous species on earth.
So how in the world, the World Powers have expected a mutually-respected resolution outcome from the nuclear negotiation with such dangerous species?! Western officials are either too stupid or too much oil brainwashed to be happy to have such a sucker’s deal! Soon they will have the luxury of reaping the harvest they’ve planted all along and become delighted by its backfire, it would be pretty ugly! [DID]
Let’s rewind the clock all the way back to 2015, when advocates for the Iranian nuclear deal were making the case that it would help bring stability to the Middle East. For example, a group of international relations scholars and Middle East experts claimed in a petition:
While the JCPOA is primarily a non-proliferation agreement that successfully closes off all weaponization pathways in the Iranian nuclear program, it carries with it significant peace dividends by making diplomacy and dialogue available for conflict resolution — a necessary step to tackle all of the region’s sources of tensions, be they terrorism, sectarianism, or unilateralism.
The region suffers from a diplomacy deficit and the mere fact that the U.S. and Iran can talk to each other again is in and of itself a stabilizing factor for the Middle East and an encouragement for regional rivals to pursue dialogue instead of proxy fights.
This seemed to match the thinking of President Obama, who explained the day the Iran deal was struck that, “put simply, no deal means a greater chance of more war in the Middle East.”
I bring all this up because I’m in Abu Dhabi right now and it sure seems like those 2015 predictions will not be coming to pass in 2016. In fact, according to the National’s Justin Vela, things are just starting to heat up: Read more…
The absence of any U.S. deterrent role to counter the violation of international norms and standards by the Iranian mullahs have given the Islamic regime the tranquility of living out its dream of regional hegemony and the ability to have its forces dominate Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq. These countries are Arabic territories that over time have started to undergo the influence of Shiite regime in Iran. How was the Arab world, which constitutes the vast majority of regional Sunnis, supposed to react to all this? Of course they were not going to stay silent and as the war in Syria has shown, their Sunni extremists were fostered to get into the fight with the Shiite-supported regime of Assad. But then the war in the country started to expand as other groups of Islamic extremists from every corner of the world joined the clashes against the IRI proxies Hezbollah and the Shiite fundamentalists, turning the Syria into a bloodbath hell, which soon started to spill over into the neighboring countries. Early support for the Syrian genuine oppositions at the beginning of uprising could have prevented the current crisis and result in with not only the removal of Assad from power but establishment of a secular democratic government in the country.
There is no question that the current wide spread crisis in the Middle East has been the result of the Obama administration’s inaction policy in the region. The problem with U.S. wait-&-watch policy is that the sectarian war won’t wind up with one’s side victory over another but most probably the Sunni and Shiite extremists could compromise over who gain control of what territory after dividing the region into smaller areas, which will then become terrorist states. Such situations are already imminent developments in Syria and Iraq. Regardless, could such a scenario that violates every global norm and standard be acceptable to the West in particular United States? Could the humanity continue its normal operation alongside dangerous rouge states, whose spread to other areas of the world are just a matter of time? Unless the world has already accepted the start of a universal war, the answer would simply be a big NO.
United States dependency on Middle East oil may have been reduced due to its looming prospect of energy self-sufficiency, yet for geopolitical purposes U.S. needs to keep its presence in the region. The question that we have to ask ourselves is that is it logical to assume that U.S. administration with so many intelligence offices from NSA to CIA along with its hundreds of think-tank centers all over the nation couldn’t initially predict the current Middle East situation in advance? It is naïve to presume that they really had no clue of what was going to happen in the region. On the contrary, the bitter truth is that the U.S. administration has had complete awareness of the situation in the region and actually knew what is going to happen in those territories and by choosing the inaction policy calculatedly let that to happen. Several determinative elements were in the Obama’s calculation to make such choice of strategy, among which, the lack of public support for another war, sequestration and its impact on defense budget resulting in military shortcomings, and the cast of his Nobel Peace Prize’s spell to hold him as a President of peace, are few to mention. However the sectarian war among Shiite and Sunni extremists has given Obama an incentive to stay inactive and make use of wait-&-watch policy and let them do the dirty job of plowing the region for him, which is a prerequisite for the new blueprint of the greater Middle East map per U.S. foreign policy. When the terrorist threat level gets red alert in the region the U.S. and perhaps NATO will ultimately intervene in the Middle East but for now they allow the evil forces of terrorists be engaged in purging one another.

There’s always Tunisia. Amid the smoking ruins of the Middle East, there is that one encouraging success story. But unfortunately for the Obama narratives, the president had about as much as to do with Tunisia’s turn toward democracy as he did with the World Cup rankings. Where administration policy has had an impact, the story is one of failure and danger.
The Middle East that Obama inherited in 2009 was largely at peace, for the surge in Iraq had beaten down the al Qaeda-linked groups. U.S. relations with traditional allies in the Gulf, Jordan, Israel and Egypt were very good. Iran was contained, its Revolutionary Guard forces at home. Today, terrorism has metastasized in Syria and Iraq, Jordan is at risk, the humanitarian toll is staggering, terrorist groups are growing fast and relations with U.S. allies are strained.
How did it happen? Begin with hubris: The new president told the world, in his Cairo speech in June 2009, that he had special expertise in understanding the entire world of Islam—knowledge “rooted in my own experience” because “I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed.” Read more…
All along DID editorial has asserted that Obama administration has been playing a conspiracy theory in the Middle East region, which has 3 acts, act one: balancing powers among sectarians, act two: engineering sectarian wars, and act three: redrawing the new blueprint for the region.
Act one, since Sunnis outnumber the Shiites in the region there has been a need to make a power balance between the Sunni groups and Shiite factions. US has been working toward the benefits of Iranian mullahs from the beginning of the IRI establishment. Over time US has allowed the apocalyptic mullahs to export their ideologies outside Iran border to make bases around the region such as its establishment in Lebanon, the terrorist group of Hezbollah. US invasion of Iraq and toppling Saddam Hussein was actually an initial strategy to boost the political power of the mullahs’ regime in the region. Then endorsement of the Iranian mullahs’ puppet, Maliki, as the Iraqi PM in spite of the victory of Ayad Allawi’s predominantly Sunni alliance in 2010 Iraq’s national election, was part of the US administration efforts to broaden the regional power of the IRI regime. Then it was the withdrawal of US forces from Iraq, which again was formulated to let the Shiite regime to dominate the region.
Act two, the conspiracy has been to manipulate sectarian war among Sunnis groups and Shiites factions. Syria crisis and more than 3 years of US inaction policy while giving the green light to the criminal Mullahs’ regime and its terrorist proxies to interfere in the Syrian civil war to help Assad stay in power, and on the other hand permitting the Islamic Sunni extremists join the battle and turn the country into a source provider of terrorism in the world, to the point of terrorists’ spill over into the neighboring countries such as Iraq, are all articulate the veracity of such insane intrigue theory. But above all this recent announcement of a US joint plan with mullahs’ regime to resolve the Iraqi crisis is just ludicrous. For more than a decade the Mullahs’ regime has been the mastermind behind the Maliki government’s policy of imposing sectarian discrimination in Iraq against the Sunnis sections, how US can expect this criminal regime to, all of a sudden, change its inimical conduct in dealing with Sunnis groups and play a positive role of mediation to resolve the crisis, whose blame goes to the regime itself. Isn’t it naïve to say that US does not know the IRI regime, this most threatening terrorist State in the world?
Act three, so far we are around the end of the act 2. The last act of this theatrical play, redrawing the new blueprint for the Middle East, which requires for the whole region to be turned upside down, is yet to come. However Iraq would be among the first States to get its new divided look with new smaller territories under different names. The play continues, your patience is advised. [DID]
Over the weekend, news broke that the United States is planning on discussing the growing chaos in Iraq with the government of Iran. Iran has already offered to send in its elite IRGC troops to help counter the Sunni al Qaeda offshoot, ISIS, that is spreading across Iraq with little resistance from Iraq’s own armed forces. Three points:
1. Iran’s own offer is a classic Tehran style operation, the analog of its behavior in Beirut in the 1980s, when Iranian proxies took dozens of hostages (including Americans) and Iran offered to help “negotiate” for their release. The regime of the Islamic Republic is in large part to blame for the chaos now engulfing the region. The people of Syria took to the streets to overthrow Iranian protégé Bashar el Assad. If Iran had simply stepped aside, a peaceful revolution might have taken place in Syria. Instead, Iranian troops, advisers, proxies and arms flowed into Syria, helping ignite the civil war that has claimed 160,000 lives. That war, and the Sunni extremists that joined the battle, were the spark that ignited the flames now sweeping Iraq. Of course, there are other circumstances, including Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki’s own political mistakes, as well as Barack Obama’s decision to ignore growing turmoil in the region, but Iran has played no small part in the tragedies now unfolding.

US have a history of creating and supporting terrorists logistically and strategically around the world, which initially started with Ben Laden and Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and the Khomeini’s regime in Iran. The rouge state of Iran has recently benefited financially by the sanction relief through the interim agreement with U.S., they have been using the money to strengthen their bases in Syria, which has helped Assad to not only stay in power but to claim as the head of the State in Syria for the next 7 years. On the other hand U.S., after more than 3 years inaction and abandoning the genuine oppositions at the beginning of the Syrian uprising, have started providing material support for the allegedly Syrian rebels. However the long-due support for the Syrian oppositions has bought time for the Iranian mullahs’ terrorists, Al-Qaeda groups, and Islamist terrorists of almost all kinds to get the chance to merge into the conflict.
Saudi Arabia on the other hand while rebuking the America’s mideast policy decides boosting support for the Sunnis rebels fighting in Syria and of course U.S. doesn’t mind that. To let the sectarian conflict escalate and turn it into a regional war, U.S. gives American missiles to Iraq’s President, to let its Shiite-dominated forces to use them and kill Iranian mullahs’ Sunni enemies. Now there is a strong speculation that U.S. has paid cash ransom to Haqqani terrorist network operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan to get the group to free the American POW.
U.S. hegemonic strategy in the Middle East has been changed; due to the economic hardship and lack of public support it does not make use of force any longer, instead it operates on undertaking secret manipulation, colluding, and bribing among different sectional and religious fanatics in the region to turn and agitate the ongoing sectarian conflict into a regional war. In the coming months the world will witnesses an upside-down Middle East that would have inevitable drastic consequences on the global security and peace. [DID]
Reported details of the high-profile prisoner swap that freed Bowe Bergdahl over the weekend are not telling the full story, according to a high-level intelligence official involved in efforts to find and rescue the Army sergeant.
The Haqqani Network, a terrorist group operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan, freed Bergdahl on Saturday after holding him captive for five years in exchange for the release of five Guantanamo Bay prison inmates.
A senior intelligence official with intimate knowledge of the years-long effort to locate and rescue Bergdahl told the Washington Free Beacon that the details of that exchange do not add up.
The official, who requested anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the press, speculated that a cash ransom was paid to the Haqqani Network to get the group to free the prisoner. Read more…
During her tenure as Secretary of State besides bunch of empty rhetoric such as those of GWB’s “To Iranians freedom fighters, you are not alone, ……. US stand with you. blah blah”, which every time ended up with more mass murder of young Iranians by the brutal IRI regime, Hillary Clinton never did anything genuine for the benefits of the oppressed people of Iran. Not only she did not help the Iranian grassroots with their struggle for reaching freedom and democracy but literally promoted the trend of brain drain in Iran by encouraging Iranian students to get out of their country and come and study in the United States. In other words, this is what she really meant: “Hey kids you are not going to have a land for living and studying for some years if not decades to come, so get ready to get out of that country!!!! See we are here to help you out!”
Like her x-boss, Obama, Hillary has followed appeasement policy in dealing with the terrorist mullahs in Iran and on many occasions has expressed her inclination for bilateral talks with them. Furthermore at some point of her tenure she expressed her faith in criminals Mir Hussein Mousavi and Karoubi and hoped for some effort by them to take hold of the apparatus of the state.
Hilary’s claim on taking credit for imposing sanctions on Iran to force mullahs to come to the negotiation table is ridiculous and just propaganda. Records show that most (if not all) of the US sanctions on Iran during the past years came from the Congress, whereas opposing administration and State Department were forced by pressure from Senate to reluctantly approve them.
As with her x-boss, Hillary’s vision of America’s role in the world does not go beyond “leading from behind”, which characterizes her passivity, submissiveness, and lacking any guiding strategy. The State Department response to North Korea’s defiance (launching multiple rockets & conducting a nuclear test) was a defensive crouch that Hillary called “strategic patience”. Her knowledge of the vulnerability of the American diplomats in Benghazi and her carelessness to do anything about it, which resulted in their death, is her pattern of indecisiveness in pivotal national matters. It was she who pushed a “reset “button on the Russian-American relationship, a gesture that has been followed by broad hostility and calculated Russian oppositions to American interests.
There are strong rumors that Hillary is getting ready for the 2016 Presidential election; she has already started to present herself as a candidate. So be careful don’t be fooled by political gesture of Hillary, she has shown herself to the world as a feckless State Department Secretary during the first term of Obama Presidency. Her role as a president would even be worse than of Obama’s, if Obama is the king of inaction she would be the queen of indecision. [DID]
The former Secretary of State claimed Wednesday she was responsible for tough sanctions on Iran. But while they were being crafted, her State Department opposed them again and again.
Hillary Clinton is now claiming to be the architect of crippling sanctions on the Iranian economy. But during her tenure as Secretary of State, her department repeatedly opposed or tried to water down an array of measures that were pushed into law by Democrats and Republicans in Congress.
Speaking at the American Jewish Committee on Wednesday, Clinton said that she and President Obama faced a “hard choice” when deciding to both reach out to Iran and increase the pressure on the Iranian government and economy, a not so subtle pitch for her upcoming memoir Hard Choices, which hits bookstores next month. She portrayed the multi-year effort to impose several increasingly tough sanctions measures against Iran as largely led by the administration. Read more…
Negotiations between the P5+1 countries, the European Union, and Iran will resume in Vienna on May 14 aimed at achieving a comprehensive agreement on the Iran nuclear issue. With a little more than two months remaining before the six-month interim agreement expires, the negotiators have their work cut out for them.
By all accounts, the talks on the comprehensive deal that began in February have been serious and highly substantive. Both sides have given every indication that they are determined to reach agreement by the July 20 expiration. Read more…
Christians are under siege in the Middle East, and the Obama administration is not doing enough to stop religious persecution by its allies, according to a new report from a bipartisan federal commission.
The report, from the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, faulted usual suspects Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, as well as North Korea. The number of Christians in the Middle East has plunged to just 10 percent of the overall population from more than 25 percent in 2011. Read more…
Under strong congressional pressure, the White House has finally agreed to bar an Iranian diplomat involved in terrorism from entering the United States.
The Iranian regime had appointed Hamid Abutalebi as its new envoy to the United Nations, a decision that triggered a strong rebuke from Congress because of Abutalebi’s role in the 1979-81 hostage-taking of American diplomats in Tehran.
The fact that Tehran dared to nominate him speaks volumes about how it views American policy: weak and indecisive. It also shows that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is neither serious about the trust that has been offered to him by Western powers, nor deserving of it.
In the Philippines this week, President Obama took a cheap shot at critics of his foreign policy.
“Why is it,” the president pondered at a news conference, “that everybody is so eager to use military force after we’ve just gone through a decade of war at enormous costs to our troops and to our budget?”
But who is banging the shield, demanding war? Critics of the president’s foreign policy have ranged from human rights activists on the political left to congressional Republicans on the right. Read more…
