". . . what this episode shows is the huge leverage the presence of the S-400 and S-300VM Antey-2500 missiles in Syria is giving the Russians.
The Russians do not need to make threats or fire missiles at the US or do any other reckless or dangerous things to make their point and to limit US air operations in Syria. Despite all the brave talk of Russia being under pressure in Syria, the reality is that the Russians can achieve the same result simply by turning off the telephone. That is what they have done, and it the reason for the tough negotiations between Tillerson and the Russians in Moscow.""Trump May Send Up To 50,000 Troops To Syria". "Syria: Watching the Jordanian Border". Trump has so many balls in the air right now that it is impossible to tell which ones are real and which ones a distraction, but Yinon through blackmail is always a good guess. The extreme unpredictability of North Korea's reaction to any Trump hijinx, and the extreme potential damage of such a defensive reaction (nuking Seoul and Japan would cause a world-wide depression), means that Korea is almost certainly a distraction.

"A smart professor (yes, they DO exist) explains North Korea". The North Koreans correctly see the United States as an unpredictable psychopathic monster that can only be handled by creating defensive deterrence to irrational monstrous attacks. Gaddafi didn't have a bayonet up his ass until he gave up his WMDs.
"Migrants are being sold at open slave markets in Libya". Thanks Obama (and Hillary)!
"Secstate Tillerson’s Chief Of Staff Margaret Peterlin Has Been Managing US Cyber Warfare Operations Against Russia For Years". We had a misplaced hope that Tillerson, as an outsider, might bring some common sense to the Trump Administration, but he has just surrounded himself with the swamp and is allowing himself to be dragged down by it. My guess is that being a lowly valet for World Jewry is going to quickly grow old, and Tillerson will soon find something else better to do with his time.
"Tillerson in Moscow: False dawn in US-Russia ties?" I think Tillerson was there solely for the purposes of telling Putin that Trump would continue to have to use Russia as a punching bag for domestic political reasons, and Putin would have to put up with it.
"CIA Director Mike Pompeo Goes Insane, Refers To Julian Assange And His Followers As “Demons”". "Pompeo: WikiLeaks is a 'hostile intelligence service'". "CIA Director Smears Wikileaks After Tweeting Them During 2016 Election". "Pompeo Likens Wikileaks’ Release Of Cia’s Hacking Tools To Philip Agee". "WikiLeaks ‘hostile intel,’ Assange & his followers ‘demons’: CIA chief goes ballistic". Pompeo, hiding in the closet for the last week so he couldn't be asked about the latest Syrian gas false-flag, emerges in a bizarre attack against WikiLeaks. Of course, Pompeo wouldn't have his job had WikiLeaks not provided the information about backroom Democratic Party perfidy that helped to lead to the Killary loss (in large part due to natural Democrat voters staying home as they couldn't tolerate the Clinton stench). I have to assume that this is part of the general Trump mania - striking out simultaneously everywhere to change the subject and take the traditional American exceptionalist positions - caused by the blackmail threats against him.

Some of the deplorables are wondering if all that money spend on building things and then blowing them up might be better spent elsewhere.

"Piecing Together More Details on Trump and Russia". Note that the GCHQ spying on Trump, at one point treated as the height of silly attempted Trumpian deflection from his own treason, is now accepted as a given! "British spies were first to spot Trump team's links with Russia". "Report: British Intelligence Agencies, In Addition to Six Other Nations, Were All Spying on Trump". "CNN Confirms Fox's Napolitano - British Intelligence Passed On Trump Surveillance To US Spy Agency". This is amazing - Napolitano was 100% right all along, and the only nonsense was GCHQ calling Napolitano's allegations 'nonsense'.
"Will Russiagate Become Obamagate?":
"The arguments that President Obama and former National Security Advisor Susan Rice have been making, asserting that they knew nothing about politically charged and highly sensitive FBI investigations are, of course, nonsense. Rice’s request for the identities of Americans appearing on transcripts of communications intercepts reveals that there was very much a heightened sense of the political dimensions of what was taking place. And she would have undoubtedly conveyed as much to her boss, suggesting yet again that the latest chapter in Russiagate may turn out to be Obamagate after all."

"New Book Claims FBI Obstructed Justice In Boston Bombing" (sounds like the CIA handler, cleaning up loose ends, was allowed to escape):
"The book also contains some revelations about the night Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police that beg for further investigation. For one, many of the cops who engaged the brothers in a shootout on Laurel Street in Watertown, Massachusetts, swear they saw two different muzzle flashes, indicating they were being shot at with two different firearms. However, only one firearm was ever recovered.
Watertown cop Jeffrey Pugliese encountered a still unknown individual in the backyard of one of the houses next to the shootout who appeared to be fleeing the scene. He did not pursue the mystery man at the time because he was focused on neutralizing the shooters. Is it possible this individual was the source of the second muzzle flash? Despite FBI pronouncements to the contrary, it appears possible, even likely, the Tsarnaevs had at least one accomplice.
Also, carjacking victim Dun Meng told investigators he first saw Dzhokhar emerge from 89 Dexter Avenue, a house around the corner from the scene of the shootout and an area the Tsarnaevs would return to repeatedly that night. After loading their stockpile of bombs into the back of Meng’s Mercedes SUV on Dexter Avenue, the brothers headed back to Cambridge to get gas, at a station where Meng made his escape.
According to McPhee, some cops suspect that members of a larger cell who may have helped the Tsarnaev brothers lived at 89 Dexter Avenue. When McPhee interviewed the owner of the property days after the shootout, he warned her to watch what she said because “the place is bugged by the FBI,” he said.
Strangest of all, according to McPhee, two of the residents of 89 Dexter have an uncanny resemblance to both Tamerlan and Dzhokhar. McPhee claims the now infamous “Naked Man,” who many still believe was actually Tamerlan Tsarnaev, but who police claim was just an innocent bystander, lived in the apartment. The other was a Saudi national who looked so much like Dzhokhar that he was taken into custody and questioned for hours. To this day, no one else has been named a suspect."
