DJ-A mortar was fired near the Bagdad "green zone" possibly damaging an aircraft museum 1 km away from the US embassy-if I (DJ) do get it correct.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-19/russia-grinds-out-wins-europe,
https://theduran.com/iran-and-why-it-would-be-insane-for-america-to-go-to-war-there/:Is Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard the only sane voice in both Houses of the US Congress?

DJ-Even the present moves by the US, trade war with China, proxy war with Iran, tensions with Russia, is moving Europe away from the US.

How does Trump think to Make America Great Again when even European allies move away from the US ?

Israel and Saudi Arabia/Gulf States is not a basis for US "world domination". Both also work with Russia and China-are in a balancing act using the US against Iran for their own political agenda.

The US is in a "middle-east tunnel vision" wich is damaging most of all the US.

When you look at the outcome of wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya it is Russia, China, Iran that are getting more global influence at the cost of the US. (And over a million people being killed since 2001, trillions of US$ wich are badly needed elsewere.)

For now most of the world do not know who is running the US. Trump or Bolton/Pompeo ? Words and actions do not match. Russia and China have a clear message, offer energy and trade. Their words match their actions.

Trust is a basis for international trade. It is the US that shows it can not be trusted. That will have a price.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ-Anti-Iran-propaganda;

(DJ-As a reminder, the US presence in Syria, Iraq is against international law. The Israeli airstrikes on/via Lebanon on Syria goes against international law. The KSA/US/UK genocide in Yemen https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/05/21/596473/Yemen-drone-Saudi-Arabia-Najran-airport is against international law (and getting out of control with Yemen now attacking targets in KSA for wich the KSA blames Iran.) etc.https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/05/20/596467/No-indication-of-Iran-threat-Trump-admits)

https://www.rt.com/op-ed/459820-trump-iran-twitter-threat-war/

Of course the US made Iran-crisis has everything to do with the US war on China. https://theduran.com/after-hammer-blow-from-google-a-paralyzed-huawei-scrambles-to-develop-its-own-operating-system/,
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-20/xi-sends-trump-message-rare-earth-export-ban-coming

DJ-What we can learn from the recent past is that EU-sanctions on Russia made Russia buy fruits in Turkey, Iran, China and grow their own. The outcome of the sanctions; https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-20/ukraines-comedian-turned-president-vows-first-task-end-war-donbass and http://thesaker.is/ukraine-will-be-able-to-restore-its-economy-only-by-cooperating-with-russia/.

No doubt HuaWei will find a way to create its own "google" for the global market. https://www.huawei.com/en/press-events/news/2019/5/huawei-invest-35million-euros-paris-openlab The EU does not follow US trade-war. The Eur-Asian market is the main market for high-tech. The most likely outcome-again-is that the US is shooting themselves-again-in the foot. https://www.rt.com/news/459840-huawei-google-/ (DJ-HuaWei is integrating its technology in Chinese aircraft, cars etc. With a large domestic market and access to many other markets HuaWei is in a stronger position than-most likely-most western tech companies. US sanctions on the EU, South Korea is pushing them towards working with China.)
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-21/beijing-threatens-retaliation-accuses-us-bullying-blackmail-over-huawei

DJ-When does a trade war become a real war ? The US is "making difficult" for China to get energy from Iran and Venezuela. The US denies China's claim in the South China Sea. As others did warn earlier tradewars can escalate into real wars when someone (most likely the US or its allies) "make a wrong move".

https://www.rt.com/news/459861-thousands-terrorists-concentrated-afghanistan/ DJ-Both IS and al queada are US proxy armies against China and Russia. They get there money via KSA/Gulf States (and in the past Turkey), weapons, cars etc. sometimes (Texas plumber) from the US.

(In itself not new-the timing-with growing US pressure-indicates a coming break up of NATO ?)

https://theduran.com/xi-sends-trump-a-message-rare-earth-export-ban-is-coming/

https://sputniknews.com/military/201905221075212775-us-military-convoy-iraq/, https://www.debka.com/mivzak/us-continues-iraq-military-buildup-transfers-marines-from-jordan/ and https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201905221075212656-signs-syrian-government-chemical-weapons-state-department/
DJ-If the US is willing to start another major war in the Middle East they need a basis to work from. The KSA/Gulf States and Israel provide a first step (for as long as that lasts in the event of a major war).https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-21/pentagon-declares-victory-non-war-iran-put-attacks-hold

Eastern Syria, Jordan, some parts of Iraq and Afghanistan could be step two. Although when the US is moving to a war with Iran in these area's the US may find themselves already in a warzone.

https://southfront.org/isis-2-0-rise-in-central-asia-and-russia/ and https://southfront.org/us-nato-push-for-militarization-of-eastern-europe/ DJ-My speculation is that Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Iran and Pakistan may be working on "plans" for Afghanistan. The Kabul/Afghan government may invite that "Asia-coalition" to "stabilize" the country. (Even asking NATO to work with that coalition).
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-21/how-wests-war-libya-spurred-terrorism-14-countries

For eastern Europe developments in the Ukraine and Russian/Iran energy are two key-factors. Ukraine has become poorer than most North African countries and needs to do bussiness with Asia. Turkstream and Nordstream 1+2 mean less/no transport of Russian gas via/for Ukraine. Turkstream can bring Russian/Iran oil and gas-and income-to SE Europe. China is willing to invest in infrastructure. (For the moment the "war" in that area is diplomatic/economic. Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia did not see enough progress the last-pro western-years. They may welcome R-I-C investments more than US troops.)

https://sputniknews.com/asia/201905221075213320-china-us-trade-talks-committment/DJ-China-like NK and Iran-may have drawn the conclusion that-at present-the US is not willing to "be reasonable". Like NK and Iran China will go for plan "B". Work with the partner that you can work with.
Since that includes almost all of the world except the US building coalitions (SCO Eur-Asia-initiatives etc) with maybe special "attention" to strategic area's (Middle East-trying to move Israel, KSA, Gulf States more towards the SCO) and not stopping for US sabotage may be the best way forward.

DJ-The only way the US can stop Russia/China becoming the main global power is US agression-but the US knows they can not win that war. So the US may try to get time for "a best deal possible" without major damage.

https://www.rt.com/news/460024-huawei-bannon-china-ban/ DJ-The US should remain the tech-leader in the world-policy. Proberbly the US knows perfectly how to use ICT to spy on countries, big data. They do not want China to be able to do what the US is already doing.

With the "upcoming markets" being in Asia, Africa, Latin America the "tech-trade-war" will be partly there. Self-driving cars, etc. HuaWei may be in a good position when "they can deliver better services for a lower price". (But it would be wise when "blocks" like the EU would go for their own high-tech-in my opinion-no matter what the costs are. Goes also for energy (less deals with Arab/Russia-standing on their own feet) and "defense" (The F35-JSF is already outdated, way to expensive, "we" as EU-should have a better idea.)https://russia-insider.com/en/science-tech/chinese-tech-giant-huawei-lean-mean-and-ready-knock-google-out-game/ri27101?fbclid=IwAR2XaReackXYGgZh1p1UKPBKpJETyEZR1dWpzEdXXxqe-MceNLd94Are8ac#.XOW6izsO7uA.facebook

https://www.rt.com/news/460038-iran-complete-control-us/ DJ-I did not see any news on Russia, China (or Turkey, Pakistan etc.) working more close with Iran in its "defense". (Maybe they do not see it yet as needed-the US is not ready for a major attack on Iran. Unless they would use ICBM's-in that scenario Russia and China can answer likewise.)

DJ-In my opinion the basic-main-conflict is between the US and China. Pressure on Iran is pressure on China. Other conflicts still can get out of control. The Pakistan-India conflict may pose the most danger.

Israel/KSA may take action-on their own-against Iran-force the US to react.

The Yemen conflict is more and more fought in Saudi Arabia, UAE. Pakistan, Sudan (and south American mercenaries) were on the KSA/UAE side. Now more US/UK forces seem to fight along KSA/UAE. Inflow of weapons (etc) from Iran to Yemen is very limited. Most likely the Houthi's manage to get their "goods" from forces they overtake. (Just like in other guerilla warfare Central America, SE Asia.)

DJ-Some articles reflecting the Eur-Asian integration-underlining why (US) sanctions can not work.

https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/05/24/596744/Iran-Zarif-Pakistan-Chabahar-Gwadar-railroad-port (DJ-India is a main investor in Chabahar/Iran-Baluchistan)
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-26/china-hails-modi-victory-why

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran%E2%80%93Pakistan_gas_pipeline,https://energy.economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/oil-and-gas/undersea-pipeline-from-iran-can-bring-cheaper-gas-to-india-tnr-rao/60379977

To put this story https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/iran-president-u-s-blocking-our-ships-from-all-countries-for-10-days in perspective-the US does not control the Caspian sea connecting Iran with Russia, or the land borders between Iran and Pakistan, Iraq, Turkey.

https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/iraq-stands-by-iran-will-not-support-us-military-action-iraqi-fm/

Putting sanctions on Iran because the US is breaking the Iran-deal is absurd. Putting sanctions on countries that refuse to buy US energy (due to Northstream 1+2, Turkstream etc), US weapons (like the F35-JSF "corruption"-the SU35 is a better cheaper Russian alternative. Turkey-Russia working on the S-500) or US high tech (HuaWei is better but not US) belongs to criminal acts NOT decent international behavior.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-26/army-virtue-tweet-backfires-1000s-expose-heartbreaking-horrors-war
War is a crime against international law. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_Is_a_Racket Making money via wars is a crime-the US is a criminal state. It is the US that was behind recent wars, but looking further back in history https://medium.com/@duplacer/hitler-was-financed-by-the-federal-reserve-and-the-bank-of-england-by-yuri-rubtsov-e972e3347f0e you have to look at who is planning, financing wars to stop wars.

DJ-War is-always-a criminal act. A planned activity for the benefit of a few at the cost of many. https://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/warisaracket.html#c1
The 1935 book by Major General Butler.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-27/war-and-young-americans

DJ-https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-28/iran-iraq-axis-sanity If there is to be a war against Iran a very likely scenario will be an invasion via Iraq.

Turkey-still a NATO-member- could be the key factor. https://southfront.org/turkey-invades-northern-iraq-in-counter-terrorism-operation-against-pkk/, https://southfront.org/military-situation-in-syria-on-may-28-2019-map-update/ and https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/turkish-backed-rebels-execute-special-needs-child-in-northwest-aleppo/

DJ-Turkey-for now-with the help of Iran is fighting the Kurds in Iraq. Turkey is also sending reinforcements to its rebels in Idlib NW Syria. For now-Turkey is against US help for the Kurds-for as long as that may last. Also Turkey and Israel-for now-are almost enemies. Turkey and Saudi Arabia are in conflict over who is leading the Islamic world.

When you look over a longer period; Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Israel were working together with "the west" and other Gulf States, Pakistan for regime change in Syria. The present break up may be just a smoke screen.

A possible scenario could be Turkey making Iran getting in (further) conflict with the Kurds in Syria, Iraq. Then Turkey blaming Iran for agression against Turkey (Kurds in Turkey ?) and (trying to) get NATO behind a Saudi/Gulf States, US/Turkey plan for war against Iran.

Pakistan was a long term ally of Saudi Arabia. The present crisis with the US, good relations with China, maybe could be "turned over" (blocking the New Silk Road for China-that is what the US made crisis over Iran is all about. Russia has-for now- also good relations with Iran wich gives Russia-via the Caspian Sea-better connections with the Indian Ocean. For now Russia, China, Iran, Pakistan could get control over Afghanistan, Lebanon-a strategic nightmare for "the west/US").

A war with Iran will become a bloodbath with millions of people killed. The goal of this "investment" would be western control over energy, Asia.
The idea would be to let the fighting be done by Pakistan, Turkey, (Egypt just like Pakistan hired by KSA/Gulf States).

The regime change goals for Syria would also be welcomed. (Of course claiming that Saudi Arabia/Gulf States can bring democracy to Iran is insane-but most likely what the western "press" will spread.)

How likely is this scenario ?
-The US can not accept being pushed to second position by Russia and China. The US is willing to go for all out conflict-the alternative is the US as a "third world country" (like Brazil).
-Turkey and Pakistan changing sides now would bring them in conflict with Russia and China. (For the US that is not a problem, very welcome). Both countries have to make up their mind on who's side they are on. They can be manipulated into conflict(s) by not choosing sides.
-Israel has good relations with the US, Russia and China. An open war with Iran will be the end of Israel. So via covert action (supporting the Kurds, jihadi's, working with KSA in intel etc) Israel can be a main player trying to benefit of a major conflict (DJ-It may even claim to be "neutral" in a war with Iran while in secret via cyberattacks, proxies etc be the main enemy of Iran. For the propaganda "peacefull Israel trying to limit the conflicts" would do well.)
-Russia and China are well aware that the SW Asia "underbelly" is the main front for the New Silk Road. Loosing the battle there would-at best-limit their plans-but most likely open the doors for regime change in Moscow and Bejing-the west/US trying to break up Russia and China into "small states like Yugoslavia was broken up".
-The US is unable to go into open conflict with the many enemies they created; from Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela to Libya, Syria, Yemen, North Korea, Russia, China etc. The "only superpower" did get overstretched and faces collapse. (Like a supernova trying to dominate before exploding).

DJ-There are other scenario's possible. The Pakistan-India conflict had a CIA role (by the CIA funding Pakistan Sunni terrorism against India). Breaking up Pakistan would also disrupt the New Silk Road and destabilize Iran (trying to get Baluchistan, Kurdistan seperate from Iran)

Another scenario is that the US is unable to make much difference against Russia-China plans. It is already to late with the EU, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan out of much US control. Any US action only may slow down the proces and change the balance a little (the EU as a more serios equal partner with Russia and China instead of "a toy to play with-divided EU".)

At "best"-there may be an end of conflicts in Africa/Asia but the price may be Russia/China becoming the major global players. At worst we may face "the last global war".

DJ-several frontlines;

Middle East/SW Asia;https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/covert-intel-there-has-been-an-incident-in-the-gulf-of-oman (DJ-No confirmation so far elsewere-may be false flag/false claim/fake news-on the other hand it is likely that there will be "incidents" between US and Iran in the "Iran region". "Israel/KSA/Gulf States may play a role in creating incidents-acting like or US or Iran putting the other(s) on the wrong foot.

https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/breaking-russian-air-force-unleashes-heavy-attack-across-southwestern-idlib/, https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/iraqi-forces-reinforce-syrian-border-city-amid-iranian-us-turmoil/
DJ-Allthough not very likely that Turkey goes back to the US side there is a crisis in Syria over Idlib between Russia and Turkey. Turkey may be willing to give up support for Turkish backed "groups" in Idlib when Russia is willing to support Turkey (and Iran) against the Kurds ???

https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/05/31/597352/Iraq-Iran-Mecca-Meeting-PGCC-Saudi-king-salman-Salih Mecca-meeting with KSA trying to get support for war with Iran.

East Asia; https://www.rt.com/news/460689-malaysia-mh17-no-evidence/ related to https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/05/china-competition-loom-key-defence-gathering-190530051325632.html (DJ-China-US battle over Asia-Singapore meeting )
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-30/new-satellite-imagery-reveals-chinese-navy-simulating-invasion-taiwan DJ-This "news" is part of a propaganda war-still China could-as a last resort-start a war with Taiwan when the US keeps pushing for war. (Most likely that China-Taiwan war would be part of a much wider conflict.)

World War 3 appears to be underway, and in a way nobody expected. It's an economic war. China is control of 90% of rare minerals, of which we need for manufacturing and drugs, and they are on brink of cutting us off. This economic war of tariffs (and more) is going to have a very bad outcome.

Albert, there was an economic war between the US and Japan prior to Pearl Harbour. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan%E2%80%93United_States_relations#1937%E2%80%931941

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/china-uses-war-words-tells-usa-don-t-say-we-didn-t-warn-you, https://www.asiatimes.com/2019/05/article/far-from-quiet-on-the-us-vs-russia-china-front/ and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurasian_Economic_Union

What the US/Trump does not seem to understand that the US was and is the major push factor for China's rise to superpower. First 20/30 years ago by "outsourcing cheap labour" to China now by putting sanctions on even long term US allies that do deals with Russia, Iran, China.

What the US should be doing is have the right people flying all over the planet making good offers to do deals with the US. Now you see idiots like pompeo and bolton making threats and insults.

https://www.rt.com/op-ed/460674-freedom-gas-fracking-propaganda/, https://www.rt.com/news/460735-us-bullying-36-countries/.

"We" in the EU are almost forced to buy US LNG (or Arab oil/gas) face sanctions for buying oil/gas from Russia or Iran. "We"in the EU are forced-as NATO members to buy F35-JSF, US weapons etc. "We" in the EU see a US breaking international treaties from climate, Iran-deal to trade. "We" have to put sanctions on Russia, Iran, deal with refugees due to US wars....when you look at EU politics more and more groups want "other relations" with the US (and better relations with Asia-our "next door mega-market").

The main breaking point could be (after the brexit) between the EU and the US-not between the US and China.

In reaction to "?" (The US-Israel most likely blame Iran-they also consider Golan Heights as Israeli-the rest of the world has a different view) https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/update-suspected-israeli-attack-kills-3-syrian-army-soldiers/ and https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/06/02/597530/Syria-Israel-missile-attack

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-01/former-obama-officials-helping-iran-outmaneuver-united-states

DJ-I am not anti Israel or anti-US. Most people in the US are strongly against another war-even more will be against a global war. You are not helping Israel by agreeing on everything it does. Israel would be better of with good relations with its neighbours-the US is not helping in that.
https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/05/30/597274/Jordan-Palestine-Israel-Jared-Kushner

The US is helping global terrorism by helping Saudi Arabia https://www.voltairenet.org/article206544.html :
The Saudi official television channel, Al-Arabiya, announced on February 1, 2014, that Daesh was led by Prince Abdul Rahman al-Faisal (brother of the foreign minister at the time).


Following the President Donald Trump’s speech in Riyad, Saudi Arabia withdrew its support for the jihadist organizations. However, we saw with the "Movement for Faith" case, called by the British propaganda, "Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army", that Saudi Arabia was leading the Rohingya terrorism in Myanmar in 2017. Since, a lot of unverified informations indicate a Riyadh’s takeover of the jihadists.

https://www.voltairenet.org/article206359.html Deash and alqueida find new warzones (strong links with CIA-main targets are countries that do deals with Russia and China.)

(https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-31/jaw-dropping-speech-malaysian-pm-says-no-evidence-russia-shot-down-mh17 DJ-Saudi Arabia is supposed to have played a role in that as well by coordinating-with others-from an AWACS-plane south of Ukraine.)

As I wrote yesterday-the US is pushing "the world" towards Russia-Iran-China. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-01/trump-declares-trade-war-india-imposes-new-tariffs
https://sputniknews.com/asia/201906021075546083-china-defence-minister-vows-fight-usa-trade-taiwan/
https://sputniknews.com/us/201906021075544264-mexican-president-tightening-migration/

DJ-The trend in US foreign policy has been-for several years-to loose alies-it seems to be speeding up, going faster. From Pakistan, Turkey, Phillipines under Obama Trump is managing to worsen relations with "the rest of the world" by tarifs, sanctions, insults and threats. Trump has made US politics become destructive for the US.

(No need for NK, Iran, Russia, China or many others to start a war against the US-the US is a DIY self destructive nation with mass shootings on a daily bases and a major drug/health crisis.)

https://www.globalresearch.ca/support-mh17-truth-osce-monitors-identify-shrapnel-like-holes-indicating-shelling-no-firm-evidence-of-a-missile-attack/5394324 (DJ-Again Russia is not a saint-but the investigation in this mass murder has become a political "blame Russia-game" not interested in what is most likely (Ukraine benifited of the MH17 downing) but in "blaming Putin". If such a disaster would happen now the "west" would blame Iran ?)

DJ-Using an (unclear) report https://www.debka.com/two-syrian-rockets-or-shells-fired-at-israeli-hermon-positions/ of two "explosions" in the occupied Golan Heights (under international law NOT part of Israel) are an excuse for Israel for (large scale) attacks on Syria.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-02/10-pro-assad-forces-killed-major-overnight-israeli-airstrikes, https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/t4-base-in-syria-under-attack-now, https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/breaking-syrias-t-4-airbase-comes-under-attack-likely-israeli-strikes/

In the mean time;https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/breaking-houthi-forces-unleash-big-missile-attack-on-saudi-coalition-bases-in-southern-yemen/, https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/breaking-houthi-forces-fire-ballistic-missiles-into-southern-saudi-arabia/

DJ-Both "fronts" may be related with https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/massive-syrian-army-convoy-heads-to-northeast-latakia-for-kabani-offensive/ the operations to deal with (western backed) jihadi terrorists in NW Syria.

(No doubt that both Israel-military integrated-though not member-in nato and KSA are operating with full US/UK/Nato support).

Maybe "large scale western military action in Syria and Yemen" may be seen as putting pressure on Russia-Iran-China. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-02/escobar-warns-its-far-quiet-us-vs-russia-china-front

https://www.moonofalabama.org/2019/06/cnn-sees-saudi-success-in-disunited-gulf-summits-that-made-no-new-statements.html:
Said differently - the two summits Anderson is so exited about were nothingburgers. Their statements were similar to the once made before and the GCC and the Arab League still lack the capacity to act together on any serious issue. That they call on outsiders to tackle Iran says all one needs to know. The OIC summit was outright hostile to the U.S. and Saudi plans for the destruction of Palestine.

As long as U.S. media deliver such bad 'analysis' of foreign state positions, the policies derived from it will continue to be unrealistic.

https://eand.co/half-of-americans-are-effectively-poor-now-what-the-c944c518db6a?fbclid=IwAR3EASwXc3G3F-slfzRknxEQrmYnMS9G5bBeGcuJ88az7-c1dKEJoZyrym8

DJ-Failing politics for decades-supporting a rich elite-make the US more and more a third world country. (With 25% of all global prisoners in US prisons, the US in the same list as China, Iran, KSA for death penalties, life expectency and healthcare better in Cuba than in the US.)

DJ-With the re-opening of the Iraq-Syria-Lebanon oil pipeline (somehow most likely also to be used by Iran) the "West" has lost all points for their confrontation policy in the Middle East. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-09/most-crucial-pipeline-middle-east

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/iran-sends-new-warning-to-u-s-whoever-starts-a-war-with-us-will-not-be-the-one-who-finishes-it and https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/breaking-news-israel-to-be-attacked-tomorrow-with-chemical-weapons
DJ-Still the US/west "elite" may push for war.

https://southfront.org/us-creates-conditions-at-refugee-camps-enabling-terrorists-return-to-syria/, https://www.moonofalabama.org/2019/06/syria-western-media-glorification-of-syrian-jihadist-is-a-sign-that-the-war-is-far-from-its-end.html DJ-The "west" keeps supporting IS, alquaida etc. against Assad (Russia-Iran-China) (with Turkey-again-supporting jihadi's in NW Syria.)

https://www.rt.com/news/461557-us-tariff-bullying-tactics/, https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-10/pepe-escobar-unipolar-moment-over

DJ-The US no longer being the "superpower in control of the world" is a major change with far reaching consequences-both for the US and the world.
The US answer of more military overstretching is "unwise" and will damage the US. Diplomacy, good trade deals (the US could be a "better partner"for China than Russia) could make the US stronger.

Also the position the US did choose-under Trump-almost identifying with Israel-leaves little room for "deals" (and is not in the best interest of Israel either-on the longer term Israel will do deals with Russia, China and some Arab states (Jordan, KSA, Egypt)

Eventhough Russia and China will try to avoid a major open conflict with the US the present "situation" can bring conflict in almost every part of the globe.

DJ-There is a major crisis unfolding-updates at;

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/two-oil-tanker-ships-attacked-and-reported-sunk-in-gulf-of-oman

https://www.defconwarningsystem.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=13300&sid=a03814ade8345d2998deaa08c6213d66&start=50

DJ-Attacks on oil transport in the Gulf of Oman endangers western oil supply.

https://www.rt.com/news/461758-zarif-tanker-attack-suspicious/
DJ-The attacks coincided with PM Abe of Japan visiting Iran. https://www.debka.com/khamenei-slaps-america-in-the-face-by-refusing-to-receive-trump-message-from-abe/

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-13/false-flag-iran-has-little-gain-oman-tanker-attacks

https://www.rt.com/news/461749-assange-uk-extradition-us/
DJ-Sending Assange to the US can start a "cyber action" and mass release of "secrets".

https://sputniknews.com/interviews/201906131075835948-pakistan-imran-khan-russia-india-iran-exclusive/ (DJ-Pakistan moving further away from US/nato) https://www.rt.com/news/461770-idlib-russia-airstrike-turkey-terrorists/ Turkey and Russia cooperating in NW Syria against western backed terrorists.

https://www.moonofalabama.org/2019/06/todays-attacks-on-ships-in-the-gulf-of-oman-are-not-in-irans-interest.html#more update

DJ-For now oil/energy prices will be effected. Further escalation seems very likely (?). Will the US blame Iran openly ? Will the US or KSA/UAE attack Iranian positions in the Gulf ?

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/06/uk-maritime-group-warns-incident-gulf-oman-190613054602630.html Al Jazeera is Qatar-based. Qatar has both-a very major US air base AND Iranian, Turkish soldiers protecting Qatar from KSA. Qatar and Iran exploit some oil/gas fields jointly.

(Just like HT maybe not the best source, still http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index2896.htm:
A gravely worded new Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that President Putin has just placed all Russian military forces on “Full Combat Alert”—a war stance last ordered in June-2014 when the Russian peoples in Ukraine came under direct threat—and which comes six months after Putin’s ominous warning that “the United States is raising the risk of nuclear war”—with the reason for this occurring being the unprovoked torpedoing of two oil tankers by an “unspecified state actor” while they were sailing in international waters off the coast of Iran in the Gulf of Oman.
(According to some comments one of the attacked ships had a Russian crew.)

DJ-I do not believe Iran was behind the attack on the tankers in the Gulf of Oman. When the US is thinking of further escalation they need more support than just Israel and a few Gulf States.

Even https://www.defconwarningsystem.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=13300&start=70 most members do not agree-for now-with the US claims.

https://www.rt.com/news/461819-clark-serbia-kosovo-russia/ The US is putting extra military in Poland, Balkan (SE Europe)-confronting Russia. The US seems to be unable to have decent talks with China, Iran...

https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/seven-reasons-to-be-highly-skeptical-of-the-gulf-of-oman-incident-48958389f53e?fbclid=IwAR3k3IdyDZDqRDXlvgP1zW3B9UN7h5NaIiXJQNWpgca4UiCZDs8UC8p2s5I

(DJ-It is very unlikely that Iran would attack a ship with a-partly-Russian crew during the visit of Japan PM Abe to Iran. Iran has a few-very highly monitored-submarines. Any sea-mines would have been detected by other shipping. For now it looks like some sort of false flag by the US-Saudi-Israel coalition.)

https://southfront.org/cruise-missile-strike-on-saudi-airport-marks-start-of-new-round-of-escalation-in-middle-east/ DJ-If Yemen forces were behind an attack most likely they would destroy the port, refineries etc.
