""What has any of this to do with National Security?""

The important question is who's nation?

this guy Cernovich appears to have some inside sources whose information he analyzes through a highly ideological filter.

Isn't this also known as "The Wolfowitz Doctrine "?

I voted for neither one. We had no real choice.

I don't know, at least not yet, but it certainly does seem to me to be very close to the neo-con world outlook, though draped in more academic clothing.

different clue

Willy B,

Did McMaster begin thinking this way before any exposure to NeoCons? Or did he begin thinking in this way in parallel to any exposure to NeoCons?

If so, and we deleted the NeoCons from public life and public influence, would we still have a problem? A "McMasterCon" problem?

Honorable people can be honorably and well-intendedly wrong in their analysis . . . without any NeoWhatever exposure or influence. Might that be what has been happening here?

" Fake news people are claiming that I threatened the Trump administration because I said I would release damaging information about Deep State,” Cernovich said in a self-recorded Periscope video Friday night. “I would never threaten anyone in the Trump family, legally or otherwise.” "

I think that world that you describe died in 2008.

Can you please take the trouble of outlining a scenario of war between Turkey and Iran instead?

I know that the result would be a new country called Kurdistan in Eastern Anatolia but I would appreciate another pair of eyes looking at that scenario.

IMO this is absolutely correct analysis of what the bases of US/ western policy is ever since the Iranian revolution. Different admnstrations, different European governments or parties, have and will come to same this conclusion of continuing on this policy. I have come to believe, this policy will not change( actually will get expanded as more independent states join to opose western hegemony) unless the west be defeated in a major world war. A new major global war can be triggerd, with any small incident any time on any part of the world even NK.

kooshy

Babak, if you ask me, IMO for the same reason you mentioned (Creating a New Country of Kurdistan) a war between Iran and Turkey or Turkey and Iraq will not happen even if NATO promote one, especially starting off by Turkey. IMO, Ottomans and Iranians agreed to negotiate the Erzurum treaties for this same reason, especially when ottomans and the Iranians were under security pressure by the Brits and Russians. Since then things haven't changed much. My dad once told me the difference between Geography and History of states is ,that one you you can change and one you can't.

fyi The Real Story on Jared Kushner - https://youtu.be/pkovYL4xcDo video Mike Cernovich posted April 12, 2017.

At the beginning of the video Mr. Cernovich provides further details concerning what he has been told is going on concerning the NSC.

In the meantime, Mr. Cernovich is being heavily attacked for spreading what is being called 'Russian propaganda:'

Please note that Jimmy Dore, of the left, also publicized the same article on his show on April 6:

The first part of his show dealt with the initial Sarin gas attack in 2013:

Eisenhower concluded WAR by the U.S.A. in Asia was a losing proposition. Could it be generalized that War in Eurasia is a losing proposition for the U.S.A. ?

Of course we all agree this is conventional war since nuclear war by design is a loser for all, participant or not.

Did we ever have forces for Two Regional Wars?

William R. Cumming

Can government by the people, for the people ever endure?

The Virginian

One thing to note, in what might be an attempt at mis-stating reality in the Cernovich piece, is that McMaster is unlikely a Petraeus protege. A well-placed contact advised that Petraeus was on a promotion board and was against promoting McMaster. Also, in Iraq, McMaster's performance out-shined that of Petraeus, and thus there was a note of rivalry between the two.
