The Moscow-Washington-Tehran Axis of Evil

The Moscow-Washington-Tehran Axis of Evil, Canada Free PressCliff Kincaid, October 3, 2015

(I am not posting this because I currently accept its conclusions or some of their bases. However, it’s frightening, interesting and has at least some food for thought. — DM)

KINCAID100315

The conventional wisdom is that Vladimir Putin has blindsided Barack Obama in the Middle East, catching the U.S. off-guard. It’s another Obama “failure,” we’re told. “Obama administration scrambles as Russia attempts to seize initiative in Syria,” is how a Washington Post headline described it. A popular cartoon shows Putin kicking sand in the faces of Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry on a beach.

The conventional wisdom is driven by the notion that Obama has the best of intentions but that he’s been outmaneuvered. What if his intention all along has been to remake the Middle East to the advantage of Moscow and its client state Iran? What if he knows exactly what he’s doing? Too many commentators refuse to consider that Obama is deliberately working against U.S. interests and in favor of the enemies of the U.S. and Israel.

In his U.N. address, Obama said, “As President of the United States, I am mindful of the dangers that we face; they cross my desk every morning. I lead the strongest military that the world has ever known, and I will never hesitate to protect my country or our allies, unilaterally and by force where necessary.”

This is laughable. We still have a strong military, but the inevitable conclusion from what’s recently transpired is that he doesn’t want to protect the interests of the U.S. or its allies in the Middle East. This is not a “failure,” but a deliberate policy.

The trouble with conventional wisdom is the assumption that Obama sees things the way most Americans do. In order to understand Obama’s Middle East policy, it is necessary to consult alternative sources of news and information and analysis. That includes communist news sources.

A fascinating analysis appears in the newspaper of the Socialist Workers Party, The Militant, one of the oldest and most influential publications among the left. You may remember the old photos which surfaced of Lee Harvey Oswald selling copies of The Militant before he killed the American president.

The headline over The Militant story by Maggie Trowe caught my eye: “‘Reset’ with US allows Moscow to send arms, troops to Syria.” It was not about Hillary Clinton’s reset with Moscow years ago, but a more recent one.

Here’s how her story began: “Moscow’s rapid military buildup in Syria is a result of the ‘reset’ in relations forged with the Russian and Iranian governments by the Barack Obama administration. The deal—reshaping alliances and conditions from Syria, Iran and the rest of the Middle East to Ukraine and surrounding region—is the cornerstone of U.S. imperialism’s efforts to establish a new order in the Mideast, but from a much weaker position than when the now-disintegrating order was imposed after World Wars I and II.”

Of course, the idea that “U.S. imperialism” is served by giving the advantage to Russia and Iran is ludicrous. Nevertheless, it does appear that a “reset” of the kind described in this article has in fact taken place. The author writes about Washington’s “strategic shift to Iran and Russia” and the “downgrading” of relations with Israel and Saudi Arabia. She notes that Moscow “seeks more influence and control of the country [Syria] and its Mediterranean ports and a stronger political hand in Mideast politics.” Iran “has sent Revolutionary Guard Quds forces to help prop up Assad, and collaborates with Moscow on operations in Syria,” she notes.

It is sometimes necessary to reject the conventional wisdom and instead analyze developments from the point of view of the Marxists, who understand Obama’s way of thinking. They pretend that Obama is a pawn of the “imperialists” but their analysis also makes sense from a traditional pro-American perspective. Those who accept the evidence that Obama has a Marxist perspective on the world have to consider that his policy is designed to help Moscow and Tehran achieve hegemony in the region.

At the same time, the paper reported, “Since Secretary of State John Kerry’s congenial visit with Putin in May, it has become clear that Washington would accept Moscow’s influence over its ‘near abroad’ in Ukraine and the Baltics, in exchange for help to nail down the nuclear deal with Tehran.” Hence, Obama has put his stamp of approval on Russian aggression in Europe and the Middle East. This analysis, though coming from a Marxist newspaper, fits the facts on the ground. It means that more Russian aggression can be expected in Europe.

The wildcard is Israel and it looks like the Israeli government is being increasingly isolated, not only by Obama but by Putin. The story notes that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Putin in Moscow on September 21, saying his concern was to “prevent misunderstandings” between Israeli and Russian troops, since Israel has carried out airstrikes in Syrian territory targeting weapons being transported to the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon.

Some reports indicated that Israel had set up a joint mechanism with the Russian military to coordinate their operations in Syria.

However, the Russian leader reportedly told Obama during their U.N. meeting that he opposes Israeli attacks in Syria. The Israeli newspaper Haaretz ran a story that Russia intends to “Clip Israel’s Wings Over [the] Syrian Skies.” The paper added that Putin’s remarks to Obama showed that despite Netanyahu’s meeting with Putin in Moscow, “Russia intends to create new facts on the ground in Syria that will include restricting Israel’s freedom of movement in Syrian skies.”

It hardly seems to be the case that Obama has been outsmarted in the Middle East, or that Putin and Obama don’t like each other. Instead, it appears that Obama is working hand-in-glove with Putin to isolate Israel and that Obama is perfectly content to let the former KGB colonel take the lead.

Israel has always been seen by most U.N. members as the real problem in the region. Obama is the first U.S. President to see Israel in that same manner and to act accordingly. This is why Putin has not caught Obama off-guard in the least. They clearly see eye-to-eye on Israel and Iran.

Don’t forget that Obama actually telephoned Putin to thank him for his part in the nuclear deal with Iran. The White House issued a statement saying, “The President thanked President Putin for Russia’s important role in achieving this milestone, the culmination of nearly 20 months of intense negotiations.”

Building off the Iran nuclear deal, it looks like the plan is for Russia and the United States to force Israel to embrace a U.N. plan for a nuclear-free Middle East. That would mean Israel giving up control of its defensive nuclear weapons to the world body. Iran will be able to claim it has already made a deal to prohibit its own nuclear weapons development.

Such a scheme was outlined back in 2005 in an article by Mohamed Elbaradei, the director-general at the time of the U.N.‘s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). That’s the same body that is now supposed to guarantee Iranian compliance with the terms of the nuclear deal signed by Russia and the U.S.

Elbaradei argued there would have to be “a dialogue on regional security as part of the peace process,” to be followed by an agreement “to make the Middle East a nuclear-weapons-free zone.”

The “dialogue” appears to be taking place now, mostly under the authority and auspices of the Russian government, with President Obama playing a secondary role.

The obvious danger is that Israel would be forced to comply with the plan for a “nuclear-weapons-free-zone,” while Iran would cheat and develop nuclear weapons anyway.

Netanyahu told the U.N. that “Israel deeply appreciates President Obama’s willingness to bolster our security, help Israel maintain its qualitative military edge and help Israel confront the enormous challenges we face.”

This must be his hope. But he must know that Israel’s security is slipping and that the survival of his country is in grave danger in the face of this Moscow-Washington-Tehran axis.

Before Putin further consolidates his military position in the Middle East and Iran makes more progress in nuclear weapons development, Netanyahu will have to launch a preemptive strike on the Islamic state. “Israel will not allow Iran to break in, to sneak in or to walk in to the nuclear weapons club,” the Israeli Prime Minister said.

In launching such a strike before the end of Obama’s second presidential term, Israel would bring down the wrath of the world, led by Russia and the U.S., on the Jewish state.

    As Russia Moves Into Syria, Israel’s Red Line Is Dissolving Before Our Eyes

    Thus a clear red line that Israel drew at the very beginning of the civil war, and over which risks have been taken over the years — blocking sophisticated weaponry from reaching Hezbollah — is dissolving before our eyes.

    Still, the Prime Minister’s Office continues to project business as usual, despite an urgent visit by Benjamin Netanyahu to Moscow last week. Sources in Jerusalem have told reporters that during that visit, the Israelis were assured that their air force’s maneuver room over Syria would be maintained and that Russia accepted Israel’s security needs.

    This doesn’t conform with reality in the region. Putin spoke publicly the next day, saying the exact opposite. Sure, we can continue taking the statements by the Prime Minister’s Office at face value, even regarding the visit to Moscow.

    But anybody doing so shouldn’t stop at that. Perhaps, like the red queen in “Alice in Wonderland,” it’s best to start believing six impossible things before breakfast.

    Thank you Neville Netanyahu.

    • John Prophet Says:

      As foretold.

      The past dictates the future. What would today’s realities look like had Israel nip Irans nuclear ambitions in the bud years ago?

      This article has the situation pegged.

      Israel is now being put in a straight jacket by Russia.

      Israel which has been the alpha carnivore in the Middle East for years has been knocked down the latter by Russia.

      Me thinks all of Israel’s elites must be pooping in their pants.

      Thanks to Neville Netanyahu, Israel’s path to the future has just turn dark and foreboding.

      What Neville Netanyahu wrought.

      It is written.

            What a bag of flaming dog do Joop

          • joopklepzeiker Says:

            If you keep going on whit using this language and playing on the person, i will delete your comments JP.
            If you can not control your emotional behavior on your age , than you need a correction on a child level .
            It wonders me for an erudite man like you .
            Can you help me keeping this site clean from personal attacks ?

            Now my answer :

            1) How hard has the USA tried to keep Israel from the bomb ?
            2) How many times had Israel to beg the USA for ammo while at war ?
            3) Why are the biggest bunker busters not delivered to Israel, friend ?
            4) how many time has the USA leaked secret info from Israel to the rest of the world
            5) Is the deal with iran and the USA for protecting Israel ?
            6) Is supporting a wide range of islamo fascistic groups protecting Israel?
            7) If Israel reacts on hamas terrorist rocket rain whit a military action, the USA is trying to halt Israel.
            8) is supporting the moslime brotherhood in egypt defending Israel ?
            9) having a couple of moslime brotherhood brothers and sisters in your goverment helping Isarel ?
            10) is training moslime terrorist helping Israel ?
            11) Is helping iran to protect their nuke installation helping Israel
            12) is destabilizing several country,s in the middle east and north Africa helping Israel ?
            13) Is alienating Russia and so pushing Russia in a corner helping Israel ?

            All this is out of geo politics motives and only in USA interest ( so they think ).
            Do not try to save me, but get a realistic world view about how the USA operates on the world stage,
            I know, it is frustrating to get confronted with another view about the USA what does not fit in your narrative, but be so kind to argue on facts or opinion and do not play on the person, and if you can not stand the heat stay out of the kitchen .

            Hi JP,
            I personally enjoy your comments here, so please try to keep on posting them for the benefit of us all.

            joop,
            you probably need to calm a bit re that deleting messages issue.

            Both Louisiana Steve and JP are complaining about it, and from what I’ve read from them, they’re neither insulting nor offensive to people.

            As you say, lets try and keep the site clean for everyone’s benefit, and lets try to post some serious and interesting points of view so as to rise the standard.

            Otherwise, if people start to stop posting comments here, it will be bad for the web site itself.

          • joopklepzeiker Says:

            Nope i do not back of from deleting attacks on the person, that is what people keeps from commenting here .
            But if you wanna have a position in this ask JW for admin rights and i can quit on request of JW .

            I,am complete fed up whit this childish behavior .


          • David, you say, “Both Louisiana Steve and JP are complaining about it, and from what I’ve read from them, they’re neither insulting nor offensive to people.”

            I have deleted comments of both containing foul language and offensive ad hominem attacks. Such comments have no place on the site.

            Often, Joop sees and deletes such posts; if they appear on articles I have posted I sometimes see them first and remove them. Perhaps you have seen only unoffensive comments from LS and JP because we did not delete them.

          • John Prophet Says:

            Thanks David, unfortunately, it’s clear to me that Joops Ayran tendency for control and power render any thoughts that don’t conform to his world view unnecessary.

            I do not delete this comment , so everybody can read it, and form an opinion.

          • John Prophet Says:

            Well LS there you have it. Seems we’re both pariahs on this site.

            That’s what you get I guess for being erudite.

            To Joop and Dan 😘😘

          • joopklepzeiker Says:

            Nope your not as long you stay decent and not attack people personally.

          • John Prophet Says:

            Joop and we’ll let you draw the line? I don’t thinks so. Thats censorship, which renders this place uninhabitable.

          • joopklepzeiker Says:

            Yes i draw the line, and as long you behave yourself your fine, and so not i trash your comments.

            You are not an administrator here and just a guest , behave you like wise .

            If you want drawing lines ask JW for rights , i do really not care .


          • JP – your comments, as well as those of others, containing foul language and ad hominem attacks are rendering the site “uninhabitable.” That’s precisely what Joop and I are trying to prevent.

          • John Prophet Says:

            LS, looks like Dan is throwing us into the same cesspool as “Justice for Israel”. Nice!!!!

          • David Says:

            Gee guys,
            everyone should calm down then, and start from scratch.
            If things get out of hand like this, it will be the site that might loose interest.

            Just my thoughts.

            I am totally opposed to personal attacks, as they don’t benefit the level of the debate.

            So lets all take a deep breath and start to being civilized again, shall we?

    • joopklepzeiker Says:

      We have to wait a little bit more , the situation is not stabilized yet .

      Will Israeli action now , put Russia against USA ?

      Would the USA and Russia go to war over Israel, i do not think so !

    • CARLOS LIZARRAGA Says:

      You have to be a moron to believe anything Putin says.Let us not forget his origins.Like the native American Indians used to say-the white man speaks with a fork tongue.And that is one white Russian that speaks with multiple fork tongues, What we are now seeing is the encircling of Israel by its most ferocious enemies and an attempt to change and conquer the Gulf states,Jordan,and the grand prize of Saudi Arabia.

  2. John Prophet Says:

    In the “Game of Thrones” manipulation and subterfuge rules the day. Sackless Neville Netanyahu instead of taking care of Israel’s
    fate has made a career out of manipulating others to do his down his dirty work for him. He was instrumental in pushing the US to the war with Iraq, and he tried very hard to do the same with the US and Iran.

    Netanyahu with his silken oratory skills fashioned himself as the master manipulator. Well, the chickens have come home to roost.

    Neville Netanyahu actively campaigned against Obama in Americas Presibential elections and he tried to end run Obama by going directly to congress to plead his case on the Iran deal. He failed in both attempts.

    Neville Netanyahu, pay back is a bitch. Unfortunately it’s the Israeli citizens that will pay the price.

    It is written.

  3. David Says:

    Joop,
    I agree with you that the US and Russia will not go to war over Israel.

    JP,
    I agree with you when you state that Bibi was instrumental in pushing the US to war with Iraq, an that he has been trying really hard to do the same against Iran.

    I personally think that both the US top politicians, and the US citizens are sick and tired of this game.

    And I FULLY agre with the last paragraph of the article.
    So that’s why my money is on the idea of Israel not striking Iran.

          Getting Europe down, so they can not play a major roll on the chessboard of geo politics , and teaming up a bit more with Russia.

          The USA needs dearly EU support for the survival of the petro dollar and will do everything to defend the petro dollar.
          The effects of defending of the petro dollar can we see daily in the regime changes in Libia and so on .

          DIA Docs: West Wants a “Salafist Principality in Eastern Syria”?
          Posted on May 23, 2015 by Robert Barsocchini

          Newly-declassified US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) documents from 2012:

          In Syria:

          THE SALAFIST [sic], THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, AND AQI ARE THE MAJOR FORCES DRIVING THE INSURGENCY IN SYRIA.

          AQI [Al Qaeda in Iraq, which became ISIS: “ISIS, once called AQI”] SUPPORTED THE SYRIAN OPPOSITION FROM THE BEGINNING, BOTH IDEOLOGICALLY AND THROUGH THE MEDIA…

          …OPPOSITION FORCES ARE TRYING TO CONTROL THE EASTERN AREAS (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), ADJACENT TO THE WESTERN IRAQI PROVINCES (MOSUL AND ANBAR), IN ADDITION TO NEIGHBORING TURKISH BORDERS. WESTERN COUNTRIES, THE GULF STATES AND TURKEY ARE SUPPORTING THESE EFFORTS.

          IF THE SITUATION UNRAVELS THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITION WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME…

  4. David Says:

    I believe that all this is engineered, and that the whole purpose of it is for nationalistic political parties to rise in Europe to try and bring more chaos against the disastrous arrival of the muslim invaders, not refugees.

    Hey joop, wouldn’t this be a perfect setting for the supranational government to step in and take the situation under their wings?

    These are my two cents for the whole thing my friend.

    • joopklepzeiker Says:

      You got it !!

      We in Europe are locked in between a rock and a hard place.
      And perhaps you know it already , there are already international EU force,s, build up for years to control the situation in Europe if the people get a bit to loud.

      Just today the police in Holland pay house visit,s by people who are against building another refugee camp , it is getting faster by the day.

      https://twitter.com/EU_MilitiaWatch

      The awareness by the people is growing, i have a lot of info but in German or in Dutch .

      All eyes are on the middle east but would it be possible that it starts again in Europe , no 3 ?

      Again Europe as ground zero ?

      • David Says:

        joop,
        don’t know if we will have a ground zero here or not, but the situation is going to get from bad to worse. That’s for sure.

        There are too many factors involved, so it’s very difficult to make a rational decision about it.

        I consider those people pulling the strings behind the curtain as total sociopaths, but unfortunately for us they are incredibly smart.

        • joopklepzeiker Says:

          I do not know it for sure, but is see a possibility.

          It is planned a long time ago, it is not a miracle that Germany plays a role again !

          Very smart and are the break away society who will control everything, at least that is their goal, nation states are less and less important .

          The next phase as i see it , the world will break up for the time being in 4 power blocks, and as the world is used to this new system they go for the unification of the world, it is written !

            Hey joop, if you have time (and want to), I would like to know your personal opinion on what I wrote about Israel on the message re Ban Ki-Moon and Obama.

            Thanks in advance.

            As I said, only if you want to.

            Freedom is our biggest treasure, so just feel free.

            I will understand if you don’t want to give any opinion at all.

            I do not agree !

            Jerusalem is the eternal capitol of the free Jewish democratic state of Israel.

            And that is my opinion , based on 3227 years of historical facts.

            There is NO one freaking screaming moslime with any rights to it.

    Understood your opinion on Israel.
    We’ll see how all develops.
