Rudy, Iran is a step away from Russia and China is a short leap, therefore, any attack on Iran by the USA would be considered a belligerent creep towards their borders - hotly unacceptable to either Russia or China. The msm tends to never talk about strategy, and not that many alternative news sites do either, but the strategic facts dominating right now are the following: 1- israel lost its deterrence capability and with it its domination of its own borders back in 2006 when it lost to Hezbollah. 2- USA lost its hegemony over the Levant when Russia stepped into Syria some 18 months ago. These are HUGE losses to the axis of evil. The only offensive activity that the USA and israel can indulge in nowadays is cyber warfare. But the other side too can respond in like.

Yeah thanks Rudy for the Rockafeller link - a bit mouthy but it does have several interesting tidbits - I read the first half with attentive care then perused quickly thru the rest of the piece for lack of interest in the characters being analyzed.  Nevertheless, I've seen the writer's alarmist propositions in other articles here and there and... well... meh.  I mean meh to the Iran angle.  That's not to say that 'bomb Iran' is not paramount and top of the likudist wish list delivered already to Trump (how boringly predictable!), but the fact remains that no one can touch Iran (not even the only superpower) without catastrophic consequences to the global economy which in turn would seriously damage an already struggling dollar (read Strait of Hormuz and the dire implications of its closure by Iran). 

Sure, USA weaponry is capable of devastating destruction but to shock and awe Iran would ALSO guarantee the immediate demolition of Tel Aviv in return.  Iran presently has the perfect reach for this retaliatory act from its own turf, from the Syrian landmass and also from Hezbollah bases nestled right there at Israel's doorstep.

To Trump, a true alpha capitalist, this war would be too costly and without any guarantees and secured profits; as well as a war that realistically contains the unpalatable scenario of Tel Aviv being sacrificed for Tehran.  The 'bomb Iran' zealots, they want Trump to attack Iran a-la Bush-Iraq style and pay for it with American blood and treasure:  they would want Trump to 'deal' with Iran while israel stayed way out of the actual battlefields and its costs; only helping with propaganda and (faulty) intelligence - but that's just a demented ziocon teenage pipedream devoid of any geopolitical realism.  Trump will be able to see what a 'bad deal' for America a war of choice on Iran would be.  He wouldn't do it even if saudi arabia agreed to pay for the war - he will not send American soldiers (who mostly voted for him) to die for a saudi-wahabi cause and benefit - be they partners of israel or not - Trump hates wahabists too much to do the kind of deals with them where Americans end up dying and saudi soldiers live intact (saudi can't sent substantial numbers of soldiers cuz it simply doesn't have them - most of its soldiers are of Pakistani origins).  Trump just won't do it at the end of the day, I don't think he'll start a war with Iran.  

But even if Trump and israel go crazy and end up nuking Iran, Tel Aviv will also be simultaneously sent to its maker too - it's a small city and blitzing it with drones and short and medium range missiles would take mere hours - plus bombing the Damona is also on the Iran retaliation list.  This war will cost more than the provocateurs are willing to pay - simply.

The 'bomb Iran' gangbangers live on their own strategy-starved planet - they do not understand the universal law of cause and effect - their narcissism and prejudice won't let them grok past their bratish warmongering.  And we haven't even touched on the military complexities of Iran being a major client of Russia and China.  No, man, no - it's not possible to attack Iran anymore without starting WW3.  Realists know it.  Empire doesn't want it either - just ask Bush junior who said yes to EVERYTHING Cheney asked for EXCEPT for going to war with Iran.  It's just not gonna happen - Empire won't let it.  But the fear-laced narrative sells fast off the racks I guess.

I honestly wouldn't bother with the attack-Iran regurgitations - it's utterly meaningless and they keep talking about it cuz the ziocons don't want to admit to yet another strategic defeat at the hands of the Iranians.   It's been at least a whole decade since israel scored a single goal against the Axis of Resistance.  This is a fact.

Trump or no Trump, Iran lives - and with a lot more security and boundless futures than israel has, I may add.

Trump hasn't got a clue about foreign policy nuance but he is a fast learner - he will make stupid moves that will bite him in the Adam's apple but he will learn quickly from them. He will always 'love' the isrealis more than the Palestinians - but by all accounts, he will always love America more than he loves israel. I believe he will consistently refer to his America-First ideology when looking for solutions and new maneuvers. I don't feel optimistic at all and I don't feel pessimistic either - I feel neutral about it all thus far - we've yet to see what kind of presidential performance Trump will deliver. He certainly didn't need aipac approval or support to get elected, like a dozen presidents before him have - the usa 'jews' don't own Trump like they owned Obama and previous prezies - and this, dear Rudy, is really what I find most refreshing.

I'm here in the middle east, Sean, and I can tell you nobody has forgotten Palestine - and they never will. The Al Saud family has forgotten even their own people so they don't count, but you go read Saudi people's social media commentary about Palestine and you will see continuing and staunch support for the Palestine cause. The fact of the matter is that israel hasn't got a clue what to do with the Axis of Resistance that stands in its way without getting Tel Aviv destroyed. Making no moves except for using islamic jihadists to its own end has proven to be a failed strategy that has only further empowered the Axis of Resistance. The zionists have run out of ideas, Sean. They are in deep geopolitical doodoo but you will never hear them talk about it in the West. Au contraire, they will keep blustering about their might blah blah blah and repeat it enough times that the masses will believe it. Don't fall for the oldest trick in the book. Nobody can save israel - certainly not Trump tweets.

Thanks Rudy.  Yeah I got sent that vid a few days ago - the most striking thing about it is the CNN presenter's expression of agony as the truth about Syria is being conveyed to her by Ms. Ortiz.  Heh.

And what about this little number here:  Whistleblower Amber Lyon (award-winning ex reporter for CNN) busts CNN's 'sponsored' news deals with evil Qatar dictator:

It's gonna be one heck of a tough year coming up for the MSM in 2017.  I wonder who will first go belly up in the next couple of years?

Sean, we all know too well that the zionists, on behalf of israel, have completely taken over the US government and its sub agencies.  This has been the case since Bill Clinton's surrender days - everybody in the political arena saw with their own eyes what they did to President Bush senior (sabotage his second term victory) and so them career politicians (the cowards!) have been stepping up en mass to fellate the israel donkey ever since.  This will prove the ruin of America - not America's support for israel per se, but the treasonous seeds planted by israel operatives in the heart and brain of our body politic.  I mean to say, for example:  we support the UK but the UK will not be the ruin of the USA because they have not infiltrated and tentacle-strangled our political system - but israel has and the long term effects are akin to slow-release poison.

Aipac may be very powerful in DC but this means nothing in the Arab Levant - nobody is scared of aipac around here: neither citizen nor politician.  They indeed have their own plans for israel in the zio-free side of the Levant that are not dependent on aipac or WH approval - the zio media in the west will never objectively disclose the details of this ongoing reality to its readers.

Trump clearly is no fan of jihadist islam but he knows damn well that to defeat it is to align first and foremost with Russia, not israel, not even the UK.  So you see, Trump can blow his trumpet for israel all he wants and for whatever reason, but at some stage, he will have to make pragmatic decisions that will not necessarily be what israel wants - and what israel wants is for the jihadis to keep warring against the Axis of Resistance in the Levant till they get their caliphate.  What israel wants is the very opposite of what Putin wants and considering that Russia is spearheading the war against jihadist terrorism, Trump will have no choice but to work with real anti jihadists like Putin.

Short of a real and nasty political revolution, a real "draining of the swamp" and not just a partial Trumpian one, I'm afraid Americans getting rid of zionism will prove harder and bloodier than liberating historic Palestine.  Liberating historic Palestine is simpler and entails one good war against an outsider enemy, but liberating DC from zionism will probably need a traumatic civil war where the enemy is embedded firmly within and cutting off a digit or two may become necessary.

Trump is giving Netanyahu what he wants while he can.  I expect this and I am not one bit surprised or worried. Trump is pragmatic enough to know that at some stage of the mideast game, the American-First interests will have to trump the israel-first benefits.

It's a political kabuki in the meantime.
