US Defeat in Syria: The Wrong End of “Might Makes Right”

Syria and the Road to Return to the Ranks of the Arabs


Two themes have recently attracted the attention of media and social networks in the Middle East. The first is the trend towards a gradual restoration of Arab relations with the Syrian government.

The US Syria Withdrawal and the Myth of the Islamic State’s “Return”

Russia Walking a Fine Line between Turkey & the US in Syria


The politics of ‘safe-zone’, a stretch of Syrian territory along Turkey-Syria border jointly managed by Turkey and the U.S., has certainly given a new twist to the Syrian end-game. Most certainly, the US’ encouragement of this ‘safe-zone’ is part of its plan to win back its…

Trump Pulls Out of Syria, and the Deep State Goes Mad


US President Donald Trump orders American military forces out of Syria, and the deep state-owned media goes nuts. If ever the people needed evidence of collusive warmongerers weaving chaos in our world, Trump uncocking his pistols and walking away from the debacle created by Bush…

Peace for Syria or a New Kurdistan as a Regional Stabilizing Factor
