Please get started with this article (and a few other added choice tidbits), which I believe you will find of great interest — and please note the possible relationship of William’s article to Niall Bradley’s article. So many of the recent headlines seem to refer to Niall’s work in that much of what is happening seems to be a response to it. For instance, yesterday, I published a different article about the ruble/gold, in which the author stated:
“We don’t believe there will ever be a “gold ruble”. But we do believe that Russia has no expectation that western sanctions will be lifted any time soon.Which can only mean one thing: They are planning on “going it alone”.It’s a bold gambit — but will it work?”
If Russia/China/Iran are quietly fighting their own proxy war in Yemen, well, then, yes, I think it might work. From Niall Bradley’s article:
As we’ve explained elsewhere, the Saudi Royals and Gulf Emirs have no real military forces of their own. Their armies and weapons are Western (US, mainly) in almost every respect. Their ‘national militaries’ are literally staffed by soldiers, pilots, support crew and senior officers drawn from the ranks of US, British, Australian and other Western militaries. Thanks to the US obsession with the ‘interoperability’ of the weapons it sells, American, Israeli and British commanders can effectively direct ‘Saudi operations’ remotely, while passing this off as a ‘Saudi’ war. It’s not; it’s a wholly Western war to control Yemen and thus one of the key energy and trade shipping lane ‘chokepoints’ on the planet – the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait, which connects the Indian Ocean with the Mediterranean via the Red Sea.
If, instead, Russia/China/Iran gain control of Yemen, they will force the US out of the Middle East and thus bring stability to the area. Not only that, but the US Military Industrial Complex survives financially on the proceeds of war, and this effort would lock them out of that ability. Sickeningly, they survive on all of the proceeds of war. For proof of this, just follow George Webb’s work.
The abrupt firing of President Trump’s key National Security Adviser, General Michael Flynn, after only days on the job, may be a blessing in disguise for those interested in a more peaceful world. It may also have been the splash of cold water that the Russian leadership needed to disabuse them of any fantasies or thoughts they would do good for their nation by cutting Flynn’s dirty deal over “peace” in Syria.
