The USA have just dropped theyve deployed low yield nukes on their submarines. The threat of miscalculation has just gone up tenfold.

I spent a fait bit of time sailing through Key Largo on my 18-foot stiff back in the day. I can still remember listening to SEN on my yacht when we (NMFC) drafted the Cockatoo brothers. There wasn't a dry eye on the boat. Fat Stav then pretended she was one of the Planet People, and then without warning, she jumped into the water wearing no more than her Ross Glendinning duffel coat. I'll never forget it. It seemed so real.

Syrian Army in the process of routing the remainder of the jihadist and Daesh scum from Idlib province.

Whatever you think of Assad, his win in the war is one for the ages.
at present the GCC countries are partitioning the White House to have the financial sanctions lifted, so they can in turn pour money in and buy influence with the Assad regime.

If Washington can successfully keep Iran $$ from Syria and replace with GCC $$ it would be massive.

Turkey will become enemy number 1 even before Israel for Assad.

Erdogan has to choose now in Idlib, commit actually regular Turkish Army troops to the fight, or admit he's lost.

He already lost when he choose not to buy the patriots.
being kicked out of next gen fighters will have massive consequences.

Although to quote a multigenerational jarhead there’s no way the west was going to give the Turks weapons of war to use against us.

I guess they never learnt after the British commandeering resadiye and sultan osman-1 on the eve of ww1.

There will be only one peeping tom in Europe, as Vodafone to pull out Huawei from all of its core networks. Big win for the 5eyes.

Good article from Max Blumenthal about the dark arts, linking the 2017 Alabama senate race, to the latest sabotaged Iowa primary.

interesting side note Robbie Mook was the designated one test the app, Ridiculous, you can’t even make it up if you tried.

That would suit Syria down to the ground. Take the west's money, and remain allies with Iran.

Iran was pretty much the only ones to back Assad when the civil war looked like being lost by him. He and Iran are a lock together.

Irish election on Saturday will be fascinating.

We could end up with Sinn Fein in power on both sides of the border, one of the key aims of the republican movement as this is a requirement for a poll on reunification.
Would simplify the border debacle for the Brexiteers. ;)

GCC is different power structure from the west.
They’ve got competing narratives and cant really be trusted as a block.
the arabs still hold a grudge from the old Ottoman Empire, they think they can’t stoke the same sentiment within the Assad regime.
I don’t think it’ll be hard considering most of the OS fighters came thru Turkey.

the key will be getting Assad stuck on the $$ nipple.

I once bought a couple of coffee cups from the Sinn Fein gift shop 🙃 ..... 2 weeks after sending Peter Costello some tissues :-D
