    An assassination has made a dark Mideast darker than ever…

    Joe Biden’s up and coming “climate” czar John Kerry has claimed the reason Russia came to Syria’s aid several years ago was because ISIS was threatening Damascus. And he also more or less admitted to the U.S. role assisting ISIS because the U.S. thought Syria might thus be brought to the negotiating table. But what has been most elusive in this carnage, a decade long in Syria that continues with Zionist strikes on Syria that have gone unchallenged by the U.S. and the EU, is an adequate explanation as to why Syria under popular Assad ever constituted a real threat to anyone in the Middle East (West Asia). Was it a threat because Syria has long hoped that the Golan would be returned to Syria? Not likely. Or that Syria has long condemned Israeli apartheid and land theft? Not likely.

    Biden will be better. Biden will be better, goes the mantra not just among most Democrats in the U.S., but among any person who manages to generate a reasonable thought and perspective about world and national U.S. affairs. To be a U.S. citizen these days with half a brain is like riding a dangerous roller coaster and gripping a safety bar with white knuckles, and the same can probably be said for decent souls anywhere in the world, including Iranians.

    If on the evening of November 7, after the mainstream media in the U.S. “called” the election win for Joe Biden earlier in the day, one happened to be in Chapel Hill, N.C., along main street you’d have thought the University of N.C. basketball team had won yet another of many past national championships. Hundreds if not more cars were blowing their horns and merrymakers on the sidewalks were shouting in glee because of Biden’s apparent win.
