    Syrians will resist.

    WEST SIBERIA/ TYUMEN - The American occupation in Syria raises the question: What do the Yankees expect from Syria? In the words of local imperialist puppets represented by the Military council Deir Zor and part-time field commanders of the SDF: "Americans are called upon to provide assistance to the Kurdish insurgents in the fight against Assad and the Iranians". In fact, on the one hand - the American occupiers are a symbol of cooperation between Zionism and the Saudis, and on the other hand-with the Pro-American Kurds. This tandem is used by the SDF for anti-Iranian policy.

    ‘Trump turned into laughing stock of the world’

    Americans are saying that Donald Trump has turned into the laughing stock in the world. Paul Richter, author of the book “Ambassadors: America’s Diplomats on the Front Lines”, says Trump in his presidential campaigns claimed that “foreigners are laughing at us”. However, he says, a video shows that NATO leaders in their summit in Britain are “making fun of Trump”. A citizen from New Hampshire also seriously disputes Trump’s foreign policy achievements, saying, “We need to be fair about Trump’s foreign policy achievements”. He says the U.S. is being “isolated among its allies because of violating international agreements.” The citizen also says the U.S. is empowering certain Arab countries, mainly Saudi Arabia, which is used to kill innocent children and women.

    TEHRAN - It has been a rather long time that politicians like the French President Emmanuel Macron, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, didn't speak of the formation of an "Independent European Army."

    TEHRAN - Marc Finaud, the former French Foreign Ministry spokesman, says that “the reasons why France and Germany saw an interest in developing further EU strategic autonomy were related to the apparent reduced American interest in transatlantic solidarity, and the prospect of the United Kingdom leaving the EU, because the UK was one of the two leading military powers in Europe but always opposed any progress towards a ‘European army’.”

    The conflict between White House and NATO

    As Politico reported, So far, the defense-centered core of the Western alliance has proven strikingly sturdy, even as U.S.-European collaboration has collapsed on other issues, such as climate change, trade and Iran. The Trump administration pleasantly surprised many across the Atlantic by nearly doubling the Obama-era program to fund U.S. military presence in Europe. Almost 1,000 Americans in uniform are now deployed in Poland. By most accounts, the alliance’s ability to discourage Moscow from testing NATO’s resolve has never been better.
