The official narrative about the Beirut explosion simply doesn’t add up. Until independent scientists can collect samples from the site and analyze them fully, the issue will remain unresolved.
Don’t be fooled, Israel may have just blown up a rudimentary Iranian nuke in Beirut Port.
Clearly, the Trump Administration is committed to positioning itself to attack Iran. It looks to be a matter of “when” … More
In my September 22, 2019 op-ed at The American Spectator, I assessed where Iran will inevitably attack and how it might use asymmetrical warfare in an attempt to weaken President Trump’s reelection chances in 2020 (and why all of Iran’s plans are doomed to fail).
In my September 15, 2019 op-ed for The American Spectator, I argue that the United States must spearhead the creation of an Israeli-Saudi Arabian NATO-like alliance to balance against Iran’s growing threat.
Trump is playing a high-risk-high-reward game of geostrategic chicken with Iran. If we wins, he’ll get a real deal with Iran. If not, it’s war.
In my recent op-ed for The American Spectator, I argue that President Trump’s decision not to bomb Iran was the correct one and that the Washington foreign policy elite are wrong to undercut Trump on this issue while at the same time denying critical arms sales to Saudi Arabia.
As Iran extends its reach in the region, the United States and its allies push back against it. This has forced Iran to get bolder in their attacks against the U.S. and its allies. Oddly enough, there are quarters in the West that seek to accommodate Iran while abandoning Israel and Saudi Arabia. This will weaken the U.S. and empower Russia and China.
“The new Tanker War, then, is just the beginning. At the same time, unless Saudi Arabia and the Israelis are willing to take the point in this new campaign against Iran, the United States will have to fight the Tanker War 2.0 tit-for-tat, just as the Iranians are. We must never forget that the Iranians will not abandon their quest for nuclear arms and we in the West simply cannot allow for them to acquire these nuclear capabilities. Therefore, one can anticipate the global price of oil to continue to increase–despite what many of the so-called “experts” claim. This will mean that Russia will become more belligerent over time with the West. Ultimately, though, the United States must do what it can–along with its regional allies–to deny Iran the potential to use nuclear arms against U.S. allies, such as Iran and the Sunni Arab states.”
In my estimation, the costs of invading Iran presently outweigh any benefits. Trump should rein in Bolton and the others in his administration until a better strategy can be crafted.
