Thanks to Brandon Turbeville for connecting the dots on the US-Israel-Saudi plan to take down Bashar al-Assad and Syria. Turbeville reminds us of an article published by TIME in 2006.
TIME revealed a leaked two-page document circulating amongst key figures in the Bush administration that openly stated that the U.S. was “supporting regular meetings of internal and diaspora Syrian activists” in Europe. The document made no bones about expressing hope that “these meetings will facilitate a more coherent strategy and plan of actions for all anti-Assad activists.”

Trump’s support for Israel and its systematic slaughter of Palestinians took a beating this week when the United Nations flat out rejected a resolution introduced by the intrepid Nikki Haley. She wants to blame the Palestinians for Israel murdering them in the hundreds.
The UN rejected this and condemned Israel for its “excessive, disproportionate and indiscriminate” force against Palestinian civilians. 120 nations voted in favor of the resolution. Eight voted against, led by the United States and Israel. This resulted in the United States withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council in protest.

Trump’s Treasury is turning up the heat on Iran. On Tuesday it imposed terror sanctions on Valiollah Seif, the governor of the Iranian central bank, and another senior official, Ali Tarzali, who works in the central bank’s international division, according to the Associated Press.

It will take a while for Trump and his crew of recycled neocons and neo-neocons—converts of the MAGA variety—to realize their perverse dream of overthrowing the mullahs in Iran.
An outright invasion is out of the question. While an invasion effectively overthrew Saddam Hussein and prepared the way for destroying Iraq, that event was preceded by more than a decade of medieval sanctions that killed over a million people, including 500,000 children. In effect, Iraq was a third world basket case with a broken military long before George W. Bush and his neocon marauders invaded.

During the election, I wrote a little ebook titled “Donald Trump’s War on Islam.” In addition to pointing out Trump’s pandering to Islamophobia, I wrote about his association with a number of neocons, including Frank Gaffney and John Bolton, who is now his national security adviser. “I think John Bolton’s a good man,” Trump told the Hugh Hewitt Show.
“I watched him yesterday, actually, and he was very good in defending me in some of my views, and very, very strong. And I’ve always liked John Bolton. Well, we are thinking about it, Hugh [nominating Bolton as secretary of state]. I will say that. We are thinking about it. I mean, the negative is what I told you. But we are seriously thinking about it.”

President Trump’s trashing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action has nothing to do with nuclear weapons, missile development, or even Iran’s supposed role as the world’s top sponsor of terror.
It’s about squeezing the Iranian economy with harsh sanctions. It’s about making the people of Iran scream. It’s about overthrowing the mullahs and installing the Mujahedeen Khalq—MEK for short—also known as the People’s Mujahedeen.
Last year John Bolton, now Trump’s right hand man on foreign policy, told a gathering of MEK supporters the organization—formerly listed as a terrorist group—is a “viable” alternative to the current government in Iran.

National Security Adviser John Bolton is lying again.
He says the US has no intention of invading Iran, taking it back to the Stone Age like he and his fellow neocons did to Iraq in 2003.
On Tuesday, the Washington Examiner reported:
