Benghazi: The Truth at Last. Rand Paul, Joe Biden, and Scott Horton

Benghazi

https://youtu.be/s63mgqnkqLI If all States are evil, some are more evil than others, some particular States have engaged in enormously more aggression, both internally against their subjects, and externally against the citizens of other States. ... If we libertarians are to understand the real world, and to try to bring about the victory of liberty in that world, we must understand the actual history of concrete, existent States. History provides the indispensable data by which we can understand and deal with our world, and by which we can assess the relative guilt, the relative degrees...

Aaron Mate vs Josh Rogin On The War In Syria

Aaron Mate takes on Josh Rogin. Aaron links the war on Syria to the war for Al-Qaeda. "Joe Biden: "Our allies were our largest problem in Syria... They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad. Except that the people who were being supplied were... Al-Qaeda & the extremist elements of jihadis..." The thread role is here https://twitter.com/aaronjmate/status/1309904455459049473  

Obama’s Libya Fiasco Continues to Bleed

On FPF #521, I update the ongoing conflict in Libya. In 2011, Obama aligned with NATO to help al-Qaeda linked militants overthrow the government of Gaddafi. After the long time dictator was murdered, the country predictably fell into chaos. Now, a multi-faction civil war rages as ISIS and other Islamist groups try to carve out room for themselves. As the civil war has escalated, outside countries have provided increasing military support to the warring factions. It appears Turkey and Egypt could quickly come to blows inside Libya. 

Turkey Looks to Draw NATO Allies into Its Fight in Syria

On FPF #460, I discuss the chaotic and dangerous situation unfolding in Idlib, Syria. Turkey is backing the al-Qaeda linked rebels who remain in opposition to the Syrian government. The Syrian Army - along with its Russian ally - are attempting to retake the Idlib Province of Syria. Turkey is invading Syria in an attempt to prevent this from happening. Turkey has asked the US and European allies to get involved and establish a no-fly zone over Idlib. The no-fly zone would result in the US shooting down Russian planes. NATO rejected Turkey's demands. Now Turkey is allowing some of the 3...

Taliban: Afghanistan Peace Deal Terms Finalized

Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen reported on Monday that the US and Taliban have finalized the language of the Afghanistan peace deal. The US has not confirmed this yet, but had indicated in recent days that such a deal was imminent. Afghan CEO Abdullah Abdullah confirmed the deal is finalized, saying that his understanding is that the signature depends on the success of the reduction of violence. If all goes well, the deal should be signed by all sides by the end of February. The exact language of the deal has never been public, though indications are that it was effectively finalized in...

Blowback Terrorism

The Pensacola, Florida shooter, a Saudi Air Force officer -- if SITE can be believed, which they probably can -- says he was mad about American foreign policy: "I'm not against you for just being American, I don't hate you because your freedoms, I hate you because every day you supporting, funding and committing crimes not only against Muslims but also humanity," he wrote. ... The Twitter account that posted the manifesto -- which also condemned US support for Israel and included a quote from Al-Qaeda's deceased leader, the Saudi Osama bin Laden -- has been suspended. ... Six Saudis were...

Iran & Israel: A Love Story

Did you know Iran offered to help the United States defeat al-Qaeda? Israel and Iran both are isolated by the same Sunni Arab enemies.  They both funded the same terrorist group Hamas.  And they both rival for the attention of the United States.  Iran and Israel are now bitter enemies but looking back at the history, you might think these two were destined to be star-crossed lovers.  Where did it all go wrong? Israel and Iran both are isolated by the same Sunni Arab enemies.  Where did these potential star crossed lovers go wrong?  Brand New Political Comedy, Iran & Israel, A Love...

Joint US-Afghan Strike Kills 40 Civilians at Wedding

For the second time in a week, a US military operation in Afghanistan has ended with a large number of civilians dead, and US officials offering very dubious arguments as to why it wasn’t their fault. The Sunday night attack saw US and Afghan commandos raid a house in Helmand Province, and ultimately launch airstrikes. The attack killed at least 40 civilians, including a number of children. Instead of the Taliban building they thought they were raiding, it turns out the airstrike pounded an ongoing wedding reception. The Afghan government has already admitted to what happened, saying they...

Hezbollah Debate: Terrorism or Self-defense?

Hezbollah is labeled a terrorist organization by the United States.       Should they be? Some argue that they are defending their homeland from Israeli conquest. Others argue they are trying to kill innocent Israelis without just cause or legitimate state backing. What is the truth? Tune in to find out!   Check out our schedule of upcoming episodes: http://hypocritetwins.com/

US Drone Shot Down Over Yemen

On FPF #390, I discuss a US drone being shot down over Yemen. The US claims that Iran supplied the Houthi with the weapons. The US media has focused their attention on the relationship between Houthi and Iran. However, the more important question is what was a US drone doing over Houthi held Yemen. Trump has no authority to wage a war against the Houthi, who oppose al-Qaeda. I explain how the downing of a US drone and Saudi losing Aden to separatists show the US needs to end its involvement in Yemen.  Links Moon of Alabama - Chinese Cult Moon of Alabama - Crowd Size American Conservative...
