Renewing sanctions against Iran could be the final straw in ending dollar hegemony

Renewing sanctions against Iran could be the final straw in ending dollar hegemony

On Oct. 15, President Donald Trump is expected to de-certify the Iran deal brokered by former President Barack Obama months before his tenure in office was up.  And despite all the outcries from the neo-con establishment that Obama and the White House was 'bowing down' to another world leader and government when the deal allowed for a removal of economic sanctions, the reality is that Iran is not a terrorist threat on the nuclear stage, but are instead being persecuted because they are an even greater threat to the monetary hegemony of the U.S. empire.

Trump/Putin Post G20 -- Early Results

Trump/Putin Post G20 -- Early Results

RogueMoney reader 'DP' of Kansas emailed us asking the Russia Analyst's opinion of the first Trump/Putin meeting at the G20 in Hamburg. A week has passed, and we still haven't made up our minds -- is the glass half full, with real U.S.-Russia detente now possible as our friends Harley Schlanger and especially London Paul would suggest? Or is the glass half empty and broken spilling its contents to the floor, as our friend The Saker and his acquaintance former Assistant Treasury Secretary Dr. Paul Craig Roberts concluded? The one thing that is certain -- since the ill-advised and false intelligence based Tomahawk missile strike on Syrian government forces in April, the Kremlin and Russian people can only evaluate the Trump Administration on the bases of actions, not words. Clearly, Putin and Trump spending four times their scheduled allotted time together at the G20 was a positive sign, and some would say, given the fits of Russophobic hysteria seizing Washington, a minor miracle. Now comes the follow up that will determine if Trump actually can deliver anything positive from the American side, or the first baby steps toward ending Cold War 2...

Syraq SITREP 20: #Trump WH/UN Amb @NikkiHaley Accuses #Syria of Plotting Chemical Attack

ISIS (or as some prefer to call it, USUS) is collapsing across the Syrian deserts, and Iraqi Shi'a PMU militiamen are pouring into the country by the thousands to aid Syria's armed forces in the drive to lift the Daesh siege of Deir Ez Zor. With Raqqa now besieged by Kurdish SDF fighters, and the previously escaping Daesh convoys getting pummeled by Russian airpower, Washington's options to stop Damascus and its allies from Tehran uniting the vast majority of the country's non-Kurdish areas under Syrian Arab Republic sovereignty are dwindling fast. Not surprisingly, the neocons who infiltrated the Trump White House and installed their Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley into office have decided now would be the perfect time for Assad to order a chemical weapons attack to 'justify' his troops being bombed by the US.

Syraq SITREP 18 BREAKING: U.S. Shoots Down #SyAF Jet, #Iran Fires Ballistic Missiles at #ISIS

Father's Day in the U.S. marked two escalations in the Syria war, with the Americans shooting down a Syrian Air Force jet they claimed bombed Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces Sunday evening, while Iran fired at least two medium-range ballistic missiles from its territory at ISIS in eastern Syria. The Iranian missile strike was the first launch of a ballistic rocket in combat by Tehran since the 1980s Iran-Iraq War, and the Persian rockets transited Iraqi air space en route to their targets.

Syraq SITREP 17: SAA Links Up With Iraqis, as U.S. Backs Off Amid Saudi-Qatar Standoff

Syraq SITREP 17: SAA Links Up With Iraqis, as U.S. Backs Off Amid Saudi-Qatar Standoff

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its Iraqi PMU partners achieved a major victory last week, capping off a month of anti-ISIS operations that have reclaimed a Lebanon-sized chunk of territory from the terrorists on both sides of the Syraq border. The linkup of Syrian Army troops and pro-Damascus militias with friendly Iraqi Shi’a forces came after weeks of U.S. bombing attacks designed to harass and intimidate the Syrians from accomplishing this strategic objective. The Syrians, backed by the Russian air force and advisers, were undeterred from moving ahead and daring the Americans to use their own troops to stop them. Not surprisingly, the Trump Administration backed down.

Syraq SITREP 16: Victory Over ISIS Prologue to the Next Mideast War?

Syraq SITREP 16: Victory Over ISIS Prologue to the Next Mideast War?

The Islamic State, whose so-called Caliphate ran wild across the Syraqi deserts from 2014-15 as the Obama Administration did little to oppose its advance, is collapsing on all fronts. In Mosul, Iraqi security forces mop up pockets of Daesh resistance; around Raqqa the U.S. has started B52, Apache gunship and long range surface to surface rocket strikes in support of special forces advancing into the northern outskirts alongside SDF Kurds. Most dramatically, in the Syrian deserts, the Daeshbags are in full retreat while being pummeled by Russian airpower and Syrian artillery. As footage released by the Russian Ministry of Defense made clear, the Obama era of large Daesh convoys moving unimpeded from Raqqa to attack ‘the Syrian regime’ (as they did at Palmyra as recently as December 2015) is over. For the fake Caliphate, a Hitler in the Berlin bunker-style downfall looms.

No Illusions: The Latest Trump Putin Call

On Tuesday President Donald Trump is scheduled to speak with Russian President Vladimir Putin at 12:30 p.m. Eastern/7:30 p.m. Moscow time. Notwithstanding the initial optimism greeting Trump’s election in the Russian Federation, following the difficult meeting after the American strike on Syria’s al-Shayrat air base between Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov joined by Putin in mid-April, neither side can enter negotiations with illusions as to any dramatic breakthroughs being possible.
