أطردوا ماغورك

Monday, May 28th, 2018

كنا نتوقع أن تؤدي الإنتخابات إلى التغير السلمي للسلطة لكنها تحولت إلى مجرد ختم لأستمرار الوضع القائم وأداة للتستر على فساد المسؤولين الكبار، ولهذا السبب بالذات قاطع العديد من العراقيين هذه الإنتخابات. ومن المحزن أن نرى مبعوث الرئيس الأمريكي وهو يقوم بدور الشيف الرئيسي لهذا التحول القبيح.

Fire McGurk

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

Brett McGurk is the special US presidential envoy to Iraq, he is well known for his cosy relationship with Iranian sponsored Iraqi politicians such as Maliki.

What’s good for the goose is not good for the gander: U.S. policy between Iraq and Syria

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

The US position is certainly close and getting closer to Russia’s rather than that of Britain and France who are more willing to send military aid to the opposition, so the question remains: How much of the US position is due to respecting Russia’s sphere of influence as decided in a treaty reached 50 years ago during the cold war?

Friday, January 4th, 2013

Around this time last year all U.S. troops left Iraq permanently, on 2nd January 2013 I was interviewed about this anniversary by the CBC Radio program Home run (FM88.5 in Montreal).

What’s on America’s Middle Eastern Plate lately?

Sunday, April 8th, 2012
