McCain’s Legacy in Ukraine – More Weapons, More Death

Just because he's dead doesn't mean John McCain is done killing people he hated.  Since McCain was a hate-filled troll whose life was spent dodging responsibility for his actions it follows that he worked to his dying breath to cover up his crimes and the crimes of his compatriots. And the conflict in Ukraine is … Continue reading McCain’s Legacy in Ukraine – More Weapons, More Death

Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live — Sanctions, Sanctions, Sanctions

In real estate everything comes down to location, location and location.  In geopolitics, everything comes down to leverage, leverage, and more leverage.

Lira Collapse To Jump the Mediterranean

The Turkish Lira crisis is fundamentally different than the Russian Ruble crisis of 2014/15.  This one has contagion risk. Back then no one was worried about the fall of the ruble having spillover effect.  If Sberbank failed, it wouldn't jump to Europe.  Then again, there was little worry about that since the Russians had more … Continue reading Lira Collapse To Jump the Mediterranean

Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Trump Ditches JCPOA, What’s Next?

The short answer for me about the Iran Nuclear Deal is that I don't have an opinion on it as being either good or bad.  It's why I spoke so little about it.  To me the whole thing seemed like a big show between two sides not willing to give up anything of value to … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Trump Ditches JCPOA, What’s Next?

Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Israel Amps Up the Anti-Iran Rhetoric, Saudis Go Full Disinformation

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just wasted 30 minutes telling the world what we already knew about Iran's quest for a nuclear weapon.  And that this justifies every action they and the U.S. takes in their quest to stop this from occurring. The narrative has been spun up today is that time has run out for … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Israel Amps Up the Anti-Iran Rhetoric, Saudis Go Full Disinformation

The Neocons’ Real Plan for Syria Emerges from the Lack of Rubble

I told you over the weekend that Trump's presidency was over.  As a practical matter it is.  His yielding to his 'advisors' on every foreign policy issue makes it clear that he can't or won't stand up to the relentless pressure to do what his instincts tell him. This morning's article at the Deep State Washington … Continue reading The Neocons’ Real Plan for Syria Emerges from the Lack of Rubble

Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Thank the Gods for President Mattis. Trump is Over

Last night's strikes on Damascus could have been orders of magnitude worse than they were.  But, don't let the MAGA crowd delude you into thinking that President Trump still has much, if any, control over the situation.  Most of those mouth-breathing morons have no clue as to how foreign policy is actually conducted and believe … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Thank the Gods for President Mattis.
