I am somewhat disappointed in Alex’s dissection of this event. His bias against Iran and protection of Israel was glaring. He failed to mention that Iran’s supreme leader has repeatedly said there will be no nuclear weapons produced or stationed in Iran because they didn’t need them, and of course Israel, US and the G7 have accused Iran of the attack on the tanker with no evidence shown without mentioning the numerous attacks against Iranian shipping. Alex failed to mention the continued attacks and assignations by Israel in the territory of Iran, that Iran has been fighting for it’s life… Read more »

Just to clarify: I believe you are referring to Alexander Mercouris, not to Alex Christoforou.

After this Afghan fiasco, Washington will be in no position to pressure anyone other than its kitchen staff, and even that’s doubtful.

“Government forces are reportedly still in control of Kandahar’s airport, which served as one of the largest US military bases in the country.”

Taliban soon to be in control of the largest US base in Afghanistan, and a majority of its equipment, I presume. 

Is there any nation on Earth that has more capacity to do harm through its incompetence than that bunch of nimrods?

Iran will bring them to heel, as long as the US doesn’t assassinate any more of its generals.

Following the latest reports, the Taliban’s victory over the US installed Afghan government seems inevitable. I have a hunch (and that’s all it is) that once the Taliban have achieved total victory, they may turn out to be less frightening than they appear now, as they will need the support of friends and allies. I could of course be wrong.

Well, I certainly hope so, as I remember all the news stories when they were in the ascent 20 yrs back too. Then again, how much can you really trust news stories from the West these days and then. The worst of them certainly are unforgiving and brutal ideologues, no denying that. We shall see, I reckon. Remember all the atrocities they committed in the first years of the latest war? I remember the Italian journalist that cried out ‘watch how an Italian dies’ without so much as a murmur into the video as he was beheaded, Those were Talibs,… Read more »

Neighboring Iran is a highlight of civilization compared to them.

Mr. Mercouris says that Iran “essentially sided with Germany” and “made war on Russia”. Both of these are incorrect. Although the term “essentially” here softens the accusation, it is simply false that Iran “sided” with Germany. Iran was a neutral country, said so, and acted so. As for Iran making war on Russia, that is the very opposite of the truth. Iran was invaded by Russia in WW2. That, of course, is on top of Iran being invaded by Russia in WW1, and twice in the 19th century. And there’s the matter of Russian support for absolute monarchy in Iran… Read more »

The area to the north of the Aras River, which included the territories of the contemporary nations of Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia and the North Caucasian Republic of Dagestan, were Iranian territory until they were occupied by Russia in the course of the 19th century.

Ungrateful Georgians would all be praying to Allah today were it not for ‘Russia’s behavior’ towards Iran. Such is life, such is history. Look to the future, not the past.

Your attempt to justify repeated Russian aggression against Iran fails. First, your argument with reference to Georgia, even if it were valid, does not cover all other acts of Russian aggression against Iran. Second, it fails on two grounds. First, you speculate that Georgians would be praying to Allah today. That is false. There are plenty of Armenian Christians, Assyrian Christians, Jews in Iran. They do not pray to Allah. They attend their churches and synagogues.  Second, you defeat your own argument by noting that the Georgians are “ungrateful” to Russia. It seems then that they are not in agreement with you regarding the virtues of your Russia. Third,… Read more »

Dear Alexander, it is always a pleasure and an intellectual enrichment to listen to you.

Jen Psaki says Taliban must ‘assess role in international community’

Very bad news for Julian Assange and for human rights
