    The great strategic mistake . Brought about by greed . Of the empire . Was to disperse their forces . And open triple , simultaneous fronts in Asia . In latest attacks . A numerically inferior . Yet technologically superior force . Holds ground . And uses it's advantage . In set battles . Then moves on . The technological advantage is lost . By dispersion of assets . Asian nations can aggrevate their dilemma . By keeping their forces pinned down . In different locations . Through series of faint maneuvers . In case of war . Their defeat is fast . But allies need to act together .

    The order to directly arm the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) fighting the Daesh terror group (banned in numerous countries) in Syria was made by President Donald Trump, US special envoy to the coalition against Daesh Brett McGurk said in a briefing on Friday.

    What does the new Saudi-US arms deal mean?

    Post  par far on Sun May 21, 2017 3:30 pm

    The US has just signed a massive $400+ Billion arms contract with the US, what does this mean, is Saudi Arabia just buying influence? Or does the US have most the Saudi money in US banks and the Saudis cannot do a whole lot? How does Saudi Arabia plan on using those weapons?

    Devil indeed. Although given the amount of skill Devil has shown so far I would not sweat about it too much. And amount of cash is definitely sweet.

    He kept his promise to get the US paid and keep US jobs. Double whammy. Obama would have never achieved that, so fast and so early in his term. In fact he did not lol1

    Exactly.

    That is difference between him and Hilary I guess. She would have just taken the bribe of couple of billion. He sells stuff for 300 billion.

    Now it is time for Russia to sell moore weapons to Iran, Syria, Yemen and all others who are threatened by Saudi Arabia agressive policy. These regional tensions and frictions in Middle East are true gold mine for weapons exporters. But on the other hand arms race between Iran and Saudi Arabia can spiral out of control. And that is the real concern and problem.

    United States is playing dangerous game here. But US doesn`t care about this, becouse America is located 10.000 km away accros the ocean from this Middle East mess. I wonder what kind of game the Israel is playing here. A Jewish country that is located in the epicenter of Sunni-Shia conflict.

    I think the best way would be that United Nations Security Council would deescalate this conflict and force booth regimes (in Saudi Arabia and Iran) to disarm themselfs. But United States and Israel are not interested about that. So only possibility here is that Russia and China helps the Iran to arm itself.

    I suspect Israel just thinks the more muslims kill muslims the less the world will notice them killing muslims too.

    Nation of peace... no.

    Muslims killing muslims are less likely to attack Israel too.

    That is all they care about.

    Iran is self sufficient in weapons . The saudi desire to save their rule by sectarian conflict , will end their rule . A democratic revolution will come to Arabia . The weapons they bought can not be operated without foreign aid . The 460 billion dollar stew they have cooked up , will only tenderise their assets . The Arabian masses will then demand a bite of their well cooked assets . The worst thing we can do to the saudi royals . Is encouraging them on their present road .

    This is not true. Iran need`s high-tech weapons from Russia like 5th generation Sukhoi T-50 jets to replace it`s 45 years old F-4 Phantom`s, S-400 missiles, modern radars, stealth battleships, corvettes, new destroyers and new submarines. Plus it needs new missiles and ammunition. It needs this to effective protect itself against modern Saudi Arabia weapons.

    Everything else you said about Saudi regme is true !

    @olympic

    Iran will not attack saudi . And saudi will not attack Iran . To defend against saudi , really no advanced weapon needed . Because of close proximity and water border . And land route across kuwait . Any attack by saudi will result in the occupation of the entire coastal region and important oil fields by Iran . In a matter of hours . Followed by liberation of important cities . The attack can be lighting fast . Disallowing the use of air power by yanks and co . To take the land back NATO will need a huge land army . Ten times as big as operation desert storm with 200,000 troops . They will have to also send troops to try to do a sea landing in persian gulf . Here they will need superioty in numbers . Three to five to one . Iran can mobilise 20,000000 men in a matter of hours . How many troops will they need to land troops in Iran and evict Iranian troops from saudi ? They simply have not the means . So they will use nukes ? Hence their insistence that Iran has none . So they can use theirs .

    Iran and Russia benefit by cooperation . Iran is developing rapidly all the weapon system you mentioned . Or a good analogue of these . The only area it really needs help is in medium or heavy jet engines . It can build the rest itself . But I am sure Iran may WANT these systems you mentioned . As a means of further advancing itself . The question of the alliance between Russia and Iran is so important that we should not view any military sales in economic terms . It is a strategic partnership an alliance that is necessary to block the advance of expansionist western forces in Asia . A shield to protect Asia from Europe .

    It means Trump has widened the swamp in America and he is doing what every US president does best -- brown-nosing the Saudis!

    It also means the US is setting the stage for the implosion of the Islamic world, beginning with the Gulf Arab states. Trump is taking credit for the current Saudi-led confrontation with Qatar.

    Trump Brings Prestige to the Mail Order Bride Industry.

    Post  atruelove201 on Mon Sep 04, 2017 5:13 am

    For years, International Marriage Services had to live with the stigma of being referred to as Mail Order Bride services. However, many consider the term "mail-order bride" derogatory and feel it demeans foreign women by comparing them to commodities for sale and falsely implying that (unlike local women), they exercise no judgment over the men they meet and would marry anyone from a relatively wealthy country. Even with the foreign women being labeled as mail order brides these companies have grown in popularity for the past two decades, largely due to the internet. The industry grew at such a fast pace it caught the attention of the US senator Maria Cantwell of Washington State, who in 2006 she pushed a bill through congress known as IMBRA or International Marriage Brokers Regulation Act. Although the intent of Senator Cantwell was clearly meant to put Foreign Bride Companies out of business by severely restricting how men communicate with foreign women. In the end, the companies flourished under the new regulations as these business quickly modified their business models.

    Kenneth Agee, marketing Director for A Foreign Affair one of the largest so called Mail Order Bride Companies says, "We have always had to overcome this label. Since Trump announced his candidacy for president of the United States, the industry saw a significant increase in upscale business men looking for foreign brides. Once he became president, Trump made it the new status symbol of success to be married to an eastern European women. With First Lady Melanie Trump in the White House, opinions about foreign women have dramatically changed. Once men were scorned upon to be married to a women from Russian or the Ukraine, now is seen as prestigious. And we are seeing huge increase of men seeking foreign brides, our client base is up by more than 200% since Trump has taken office. This month alone we will be taking over 100 American men to the Ukraine, mostly very successful executives." Beside online matchmaking, the company arranges group tours for men that will travel to countries throughout the world. During these tours the men will meet hundreds of pre-screened women during what A Foreign Affair calls "Social Events" or what Kenneth calls speed dating on steroids.

    Critics say these women are just used as arm trophies for business men in America. That men take advantage of the women's circumstances, both economical and geographical. Kenneth argues, "I would hardly say Melanie Trump has been taken advantage of or refer her to as a Mail Order Bride. Women choose just like the men choose, we are all adults and are responsible for our own choices. It is just that men in America have a good reputation for the way we treat women and how we take care of our families. This opens the door to the men to meet some of the most beautiful women in the world."

    Trump is not the only high profile person to marry a foreign women, Jeb Bush met his wife in Mexico. Rupert Murdoch former CEO of Fox News married Wendi Deng from China, and the list goes on.

    If Trump accomplishes nothing else during his presidency he has clearly helped one Industry.

    The US Afganistan non military relationship

    Well, there had to be a reason other than drugs for the US to be in Afganistan for so long, effectively making it a colony.

    US to Extract Minerals From Afghanistan to ‘Defray Cost of US Assistance’ http://www.mintpressnews.com/us-to-extract-minerals-from-afghanistan-to-defray-cost-of-us-assistance/232333/


    Excerpt

    U.S. Companies are planning on taking a larger role in extracting Afghanistan’s enormous reserves of valuable rare earth minerals, Reuters reported after U.S. President Donald Trump met with his Afghan counterpart Ashraf Ghani on Thursday.

    According to a White House statement, the presidents agreed that the development of Afghan minerals by U.S. companies would “develop materials critical to national security,” as well as “defray some of the costs of United States assistance as Afghans become more self-reliant.”

    Afghanistan has some of the world’s largest un-extracted reserves of rare earth minerals valuable in electronic production, such as lithium, as well as gold and various gemstones. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates the total value at at least US$1 trillion.
