Pakistan Military's Delusional Mindset - Pakistani Journalist Tahir Malik Explains

"The United States initially poured money and arms into Pakistan in the hope of building a major fighting force that could assist in defending Asia against communism. Pakistan repeatedly failed to live up to its promises to provide troops for any of the wars the United States fought against communist forces, instead using American weapons in its wars with India." - Husain Haqqani, former Pakistani ambassador to the U.S.

Pakistani journalist Tahir Malik, author of "Warriors After War", explains delusional thinking in the Pakistani Military that animates its reckless and aggressive behaviour. It's nonsensical belief that Pakistanis are warrior-like and their calculation that 1 Muslim equals 10 Hindus are downright delusional. It is this hare-brained thinking that made them initiate all four wars with India but got them kicked in the butt. Malik gets some of figures he quoted in the end wrong but the gist of his argument is valid.

Assad Chips Away At His Own Regime's Sovereignty By Inviting Erdogan To Attack The Kurds In The North

Assad is projecting weakness by teaming up with the benefactor of ISIS, the guy who kept sending the liver eaters and head-choppers his way for half a decade to bring him down.

Entire towns in Syria were looted by the Turks. Factories stolen. Antiquities and artifacts were taken out of the country to America and Europe via Turkey. ISIS ravaged half of Syria under Turkish protection.

But all is forgiven in the mind of Assad. What a Christ like figure.

It seems the hatred and fear of Kurds trumps all in Middle East politics.

What is the red line for Turkish intervention in Syria? What's to stop Erdogan from invading all of Syria and go even further south under the banner of Islam and the flag of ISIS? Maybe Turkey will head all the way to Damascus, and restore the Ottoman empire. Why not?

Who is going to stop them? The Americans who change allies like Hillary changes diapers? The Europeans who bend over for Erdogan every time he calls for it? The Russians and Iranians who think propping up a dictator is a good policy while alienating the new generation of radicalized Sunnis?

And the sad thing about it all is that the Arabs have invited the Ottomans back in because they don't want the Kurds to rule over a little piece of territory. What stupidity.

An excerpt from, "'Assad the Enemy' to 'Assad the Brother': Ankara Prepares Shift in Strategy" Sputnik News, July 4, 2016:
Whether or not secret Turkish-Syrian negotiations are underway, it remains unclear how exactly the Syrian government and ordinary Syrians are expected to accept a rapprochement with Ankara, in light of its brazen support for the militant groups which have terrorized the country for over five years.

Russian Politician Zhirinovsky On The Myth of The People Ruling In Western Democracies And Socialist Regimes

This guy is gold. It's no wonder he's so popular in Russia. His speeches are full of gems. He has great humour. Some ridiculous people call him the Russian Trump for his antics and speaking style but that's not a fair comparison because he possesses a much greater intellect and has a very deep understanding of geopolitics, history, economics, the wars in the Middle East, etc.

"When and where did the people decide anything? Was it the people of Britain who decided to eavesdrop conversations of Russian president in 2009? But they eavesdropped! What about people of Britain? They were silent, they don't know anything about it. The people deciding . . .! Was it people of America deciding to bomb Syria in near future? Stop your demagogy here. The people have never and nowhere had decided anything. And never will decide. Don't cover behind the people! You ruled for 73 years on behalf of people.

When you were preoccupied with terror for 73 years, and it turns out that the people were ruling us! The people were ruling! It is monstrous, all this! Soviet POWs returned from captivity and you sent them to prisons! America awarded them! Britain! France! They carried them on their hands. Those prisoners from German camps.  . But you sent them all to your own Gulag! And still they talking about people! About people!" -  Vladimir Zhirinovsky, from the video below.
