    After losing the 2006 war, the Israelis counter-attacked by aligning with western intelligence agencies and Saudi money to ruin Syria, which is part of the Axis of Resistance along with Hezbollah and Iran. Once the Russians became allied with Syria, that strategy was stymied. Subsequently, Israel began openly courting Sunni Arab allies against the Iranian Shiites and their alleged imperial ambitions. Thus, the Wahhabi-Zionist alliance, with Israeli military and intelligence brass photographed with Muslim counterparts in Saudi Arabia. Such coziness would’ve been unthinkable a decade ago.

    My small contribution to this broadcast, is to posit that just as the Charlottesville mess revealed the desperation on the part of the present regime to act while it still holds a material advantage in the USA, there are linked forces in the present regime who’re desperate for war in the Middle East, even against Russian forces in the Middle East, while “we” still hold the material-techno advantage in the larger world. I sense a domestic reckoning and global reckoning in dark harmony.

    I may be writing out of my depth. But, nations and economies larger than Qatar are hedging both ways, no longer certain that America insures stability. I am not versed on the Petro-Dollar and the counter-alliance of the BRIC countries: Brazil, Russia, India and China. But even as a layman, I sense that if the upstarts trade in their own currencies, circumventing the dollar, the USA and Saudi Arabia will be marginalized.

    There is a reckoning at hand. We are living at the threshhold….
