Responding To Gaza Crackdown, Turkey Recalls Ambassadors From Israel And US

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is rescinding Turkish ambassadors from Tel Aviv and Washington D.C. This is believed to be retaliation for the crackdown on protesters in Gaza yesterday where 50 Palestinians were gunned down at the Israel-Gaza border. “Israel is wreaking state terror. Israel is a terror state,” Erdogan said to Turkish students in London. “What Israel has done is a genocide. I condemn this humanitarian drama, the genocide, from whichever side it comes, Israel or America.” “Turkey will react to this harshly,” Erdogan added. This follows surprising news where the Turks endorsed Iran following the termination of a controversial… Keep Reading

Turkey Sides With Iran In Syrian Proxy War, Putting US Forces In Difficult Situation

Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been tough to predict during his many years in power. He has encouraged the spread of Islam throughout the West and even been accused of doing business with ISIS, and now he is apparently currying favor with Iran as Turkey has announced their support of the Iranian regime in the Syrian proxy war that is currently being waged. This puts crucial US allies on both sides of the conflict. Following the announcement that Trump was terminating the Iran deal, Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said: “We will continue to have trade with Iran while… Keep Reading

After He Told Trump He Wouldn’t Start a War, John Bolton Is Again Pushing For War In Iran

When President Donald Trump hired John Bolton as his national security advisor, it came with a caveat: Bolton promised the President that he wouldn’t start any wars. Bolton is already reneging on that pledge, as he is up to his old warmongering tricks. During an interview with CBS News, Bolton talked about the push for war in Iran. He is using the mess in Syria – where Iran is engaged with Israel in a proxy war – as a way to sell the public on a war in Iran. “I think Iran is bringing us close to war with its… Keep Reading

The United Nations Disputes Israel’s Findings About Iranian Nuclear Program

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a powerful presentation this week meant to show US President Donald Trump – and the rest of the world for that matter – that Iran is a serious threat and a bad actor that cannot be trusted at its word. “Iran planned at the highest level to continue work related to nuclear weapons under different guises and using the same personnel,” Netanyahu said on Monday, denying that the issue of Iran’s nuclear capability has been resolved.

‘Mad Dog’ Mattis: US Troops Will Remain In Syria To ‘Win The Peace’

It is hard to believe that it was just a little over a month ago when President Donald Trump announced that troops would be leaving Syria “very soon.” Since then, a very convenient chemical attack allegedly occurred in Syria and was largely attributed to President Bashar al-Assad by Western media and globalist world leaders. This has prompted the US to remain in the region indefinitely despite ISIS being largely decimated in Syria, as Defense Secretary James Mattis announced publicly this week. “We do not want to simply pull out before the diplomats have won the peace.

The Deep State Has Been Plotting Regime Change In Syria Since The 1980s

President Donald Trump has reversed course drastically in Syria from that of his predecessor. By refusing to arm terrorist rebel groups in the region, ISIS has been decimated in Syria as a result and the Bashir al-Assad regime has been strengthened. Trump has been largely criticized for these moves by the mainstream media and the intelligence community, who are far more focused on Russian collusion than the defeat of ISIS. A document that was unearthed from the 1980s by the Activist Post sheds some light on why they have reacted this way. It turns out that the CIA has been… Keep Reading
