President Biden Is Pivoting From The Middle East

I’m with Joe on this.

The demise of MIGA is one of the upsides of the Biden administration. We heard a lot of talk about “America First” from Donald Trump but he had an Israel First foreign policy. I hope we get back into the Iran Deal. I’m also glad that Joe is ending support for the war in Yemen.

Politico:

“President Joe Biden is tired of dealing with the Middle East — and, barely a month into his tenure, the region has noticed.

The signals are not meant to be subtle, his advisers say. The president has made only one call to a head of state in the Middle East — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday — which itself was delayed by more than three weeks and followed calls to other allies and even adversaries like Russia and China. He announced an end to U.S. support for Saudi-led operations in Yemen in his first two weeks in office, a move preceded by a freeze on some arms sales to the region. And his administration has deliberately taken a back seat in responding to a recent deadly rocket attack in northern Iraq that targeted the U.S.-led coalition.

“If you are going to list the regions Biden sees as a priority, the Middle East is not in the top three,” said a former senior national security official and close Biden adviser. “It’s Asia-Pacific, then Europe, and then the Western Hemisphere. And that reflects a bipartisan consensus that the issues demanding our attention have changed as great power competition [with China and Russia] is resurgent.”

Another informal Biden adviser put it more bluntly: “They are just being extremely purposeful to not get dragged into the Middle East.” …

“The Turks … the Saudis, the Emirates, etc., what were they doing?” he told Harvard students during a talk that fall. “They were so determined to take down [Syrian President Bashar] Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, what did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad.” …

Reentry into the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action has been described by Sullivan as a “critical early priority” —one that the administration is set to negotiate as soon as next month with the U.K., France, China, Russia and Germany, known as the P5+1. …” 

Mike Pompeo was an embarrassment.

We hated Trump’s Iran policy which was sold to Sheldon Adelson and the other Jewish billionaires in the RJC. The Trump administration was four years of non-stop winning for these people. Joe needs to honor Trump’s deal with the Taliban and withdraw American troops from Afghanistan though instead of having a knee jerk reaction like Trump did by scuttling Obama’s Iran Deal.

  1. The pivot only means the Jews are going to be attacking China instead of the Muslims, for the time being. And I am telling you it is going to be the same people in media who so viciously attacked the Muslims for years and years who are going to turn on a dime and start attacking the Chinese. It is funny.

    Spermranch is already chomping on the bit.

  2. Biden has already announced that he’s going to re-do the Iran Deal. Whatever that will accomplish?

    I doubt if anyone here on OD has ever raised his voice to criticize a Jew, or spoken out publicly against Jew/Israel. Most of what goes on here is just cheap talk.

    • @Krafty Wurker

      Why aren’t you saying that the Iran Deal is a Irish-Catholic plot?

      Funny though – why would you care about the Iran deal, anyway?

      The only people who oppose the Iran deal are hard core Likudnik Jews.

      You aren’t a Jew, are you, Krafty Wurker? (I know you aren’t really a Protestant, by the way – you get the lingo all wrong.)

      “Most of what goes on here is just cheap talk.”

      We agree on that.

      So, you were telling us that the Iran Deal is really, really bad for Israel, er, I mean, for America, and this is all a Catholic plot by the Pope, right?

      • KW/Tom Watson is an anti-white who comes to disrupt our discourse. It’s easy to mimic basic WN talking points and then mix them with nonsense, anyone can do it. He is very similar to another long term anti-white troll, the gay interracial fetishist Andrea, who also mixes boiler plate WN language with trolling.

      • “The only people who oppose the Iran deal are hard core Likudnik Jews”:

        That is just not accurate. Not only Israel as a whole but the whole Western capitalist establishment is focused on overthrowing Persian Islamic socialism by any means possible, and putting a capitalist puppet regime in charge.

        “saying that the Iran Deal is a Irish-Catholic plot”:

        Iran is one region where the Papacy has little or nothing to gain, because there is little or no Eastern Orthodoxy to destroy or corrupt in Iran (not like Syria, which was the birthplace of Christianity – in Antioch and Damascus).

        • Re: “overthrowing Persian Islamic socialism by any means possible”:

          Good explanation here: http://thesaker.is/iran-socialisms-ignored-success-story/

          Islamo-socialist Iran under the strangling U.S. financial blockade that prevents importation of many essential medical supplies has produced its own coronavirus vaccine, and in the process of testing so far there have been NO adverse reactions. It has also built and launched its own space satellites and could produce nuclear weapons over a weekend, if it intended to, but Iran is not an aggressive nation.

          “Iran has not invaded another country in 300 years (…) Iran is a one-party system – that party defends the 1979 Revolution. China is a one-party system – promoting Chinese communism. Many would say the US is a one-party system – promoting imperialist capitalism. The difference between Iran & China and the US is that in the former their one-party systems are formalized, explicit and well-known; in the US it is informal, but just as strong, and maybe even stronger….” Ibid

        • LOL. Only the Irish Roman Catholics would have been stupid enough to get us into the Iran deal in the first place. Of course, those Catholic politicians no doubt got their cut of the pallets full of cash, which was probably smart on their part.

          • Here it is folks – as if it wasn’t obvious before, Krafty Wurker is now posting detailed, specific Hasbara about the Iran deal. Specific Israeli talking points about the Iran deal.

            It was obvious before, but now he has made it official.

            Congrats on coming out, KW.

  3. Joe should be intercepting vaccine shipments from the EU to Israel. Return them to Germany and Belgium and leave a share for the Irish.

  4. Re: “The demise of MIGA is one of the upsides of the Biden administration. We heard a lot of talk about America First from Donald Trump but he had an Israel First foreign policy”:

    You MUST be joking. There are no upsides, and there is no change for the better.

    “I hope we get back into the Iran Deal”:

    The Iran Deal was terrible enough, and don’t suppose that “we” are ever going take even one little step back to the less-criminal level of that terrible “deal.” No. In fact, the U.S.’s hybrid war to conquer ethno-socialist Iran is being accelerated now! You must read better sources of information!

    Re; “I’m also glad that Joe is ending support for the war in Yemen”:

    Nothing of the sort. It is merely a change of style, from the clumsy partially obvious to now, the completely devious, like some members of the Democratic Party’s “big tent” including Sanders and “The Squad” who play the anti-war role. The same U.S. support at the same level is simply being channeled to the Saudis through the U.K. (Boris Johnson regime), and the U.S. is now fully supporting instead of partially bombing its AlQaeda proxies in Yemen, attacking the heroic Yemeni forces from the rear!

    Re: “Biden is pivoting from the Middle East”:

    Nonsense! The Empire’s teeth and claws NEVER let go of a victim. The U.S. is building a new military base among the oil fields of Syria, and continuing to help its proxies steal the Syrian peoples’ much-needed oil. U.S. helicopters are reported seen shuttling revived ISIS proxy forces into positions behind Iraqi troops to do surprise attacks. ISIS is suddenly present in Syria again and “mysteriously” very well-supplied! The U.S. continues to prevent Syria from taking control of ISIS’s main “recruitment” (kidnapping) source in Syria, an enormous Syrian refugee camp near the Jordanian border.

    The U.S. will NEVER leave Afghanistan, and is using it as a springboard to deploy forces and proxy forces on the very border of Russia – in Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and other former Soviet peoples’ republics in central Asia – and in Tajikistan and Kyrgystan on the border of China, adjoining the Uighur region. Afghanistan is not only militarily strategic to attack Russia, China and Iran, it is also rich in strategic resources such as lithium that the Empire “needs” and China must not access. Many reserves have just been discovered and never been tapped. Gold mining is just getting started. The minute the U.S. invaded Afghanistan, it went right to work finding and preparing to harvest the Afghan peoples’ mineral resources.

    The only sense in which “Biden” (the Empire, with Joe as figurehead) might be said to be “pivoting from” the Middle East is the sense in which it is focusing ever greater attention and resources on its hybrid war on China.

    Become accurately informed. Stop reading those free sample copies of Epoch Times that arrive in the postal mail, and don’t give views to (and be “hypnotized” by) pro-military, warmongering Faux News and other corporate mainstream “news” media’s war propaganda.

    • The U.S. under Neoliberal Joe has not taken one step back on Venezuela either (world’s largest reserves of oil). Exactly like the “Jared and Donald” administration, the “Kamala and Joe” administration fully recognizes its hired agent Juan Guaido to be the legitimate President of Venezuela!!! The Empire is still working on Bolivia (world’s largest reserves of lithium), and working hard to overturn the electiion in Ecuador (more oil), and working hard to overthrow socialism in Nicaragua and Cuba, and it has not overlooked the “danger” of semi-socialist AMLO in MEXICO. ALL the capitalist wars must and will go on!

      • Superficially, I’ll grant, everything you say sounds promising for American whites and for the Aryan breed in general; but in fact, it’s all just toilsome maneuver until we’re ready to sterilize nonwhites, starting with the Western Hemisphere’s vestigial paleoliths and the backward mongrels of the Central Asian race-sink. We just don’t have the heart for that.

        • “I’ll grant, everything you say sounds promising for American whites and for the Aryan breed”:

          Promising? I say it is horrifying. You cheer for even more imperialism, while claiming to belong to William Penn’s city of brotherly love….

          “sterilize nonwhites, starting with the Western Hemisphere’s vestigial paleoliths and the backward mongrels of the Central Asian race sink”:

          Unlke the U.S. that did a much “better job” of genociding the Indigenous. who you call “the Western Hemisphere’s vestigial paleoliths” – the populations of most Latin American countries are still genetically mostly Indigenous, and some (Bolivia for example) are mostly pure Indigenous – so what you are suggesting is the genocide of most of Latin America! As for “the backward mongrels” of Central Asia, some of them are intelligent enough to design, build and launch their own space satellite while under crushing U.S. sanctions, and not only Iran but most of Central Asia was more civilized and technologically advanced than Europe for several millennia, until the Renaissance.

  5. A key under-appreciated point is that there is big intra-Jewish spat between the globalist Jews represented by Soros and the nationalist Jews represented by Netanyahu

    Biden is doing what Soros wants, Trump was Netanyahu’s pal

    The pushing out of Trump, and global covid lockdown etc, gave the global win to Soros … Netanyahu is tied to all those European anti-Soros right-wing people too, Orbán, Salvinim Le Pen etc

    Soros vs nationalist Zios is why Netanyahu has legal troubles in Israel and is on the back foot there

    So Biden-Harris are tied to the Soros-globalist Jewish gang … Soros actually funds some Palestinian stuff. There are still plans for a greater Israel and heavy Jewish ‘leadership’, but more ‘multi-culturalism’ for Israel itself, plus Arabs starting to timidly start on the feminism LGBT agendas etc, more peace with Israel, all part of the package

    Hunter’s fellow writer on Unz Review, rebel Jew Gilad Atzmon, is talking on Unz about how the covid vaccines seem to be killing a huge amount of Jews, Israel being the most-vaccinated country in the world

    Israeli death rates skyrocketed after the covid jabs were given, with a lot of young people sick and dying all of a sudden too

    It is said to be part of the Soros game plan that the ultra-nationalist Israeli zios go down, as well as the USA

    Speaking of covid – does Hunter have a view on why no-lockdown, no-rules Florida, and near-total-lockdown California, have the exact same covid death rate?

    Newsweek and Wall Street Journal are both quoting Johns Hopkins Dr Marty Makary, who says he thinks close to around 200 million USA people already have had covid exposure, with no symptoms for most … and that covid is essentially about to disappear within about 60 days … statistics are dropping radically in a way that can’t be explained by behaviour, vaccines or anything except herd immunity he says … most people just aren’t vulnerable to it – It was just the flu, bro, says the doctor, deadly for some for a while like the flu often is

  6. JCPOA, Iran Deal worthwhile for Iran? Doubt it.
    Any deal entered into with US, Israel not good.

    Iran should consider itself better off when Trump canceled.

    A noose around one’s neck rarely a benefit.

    Creating problems, weakening Russia, China hurts Syria, Iran.

    Since few consider Biden or Harris in charge,
    who, what are making the decisions?

  7. Re: “it’s another one of the upsides of the Biden administration”:

    In addition to pretending to be “pivoting away from the Middle East,” here’s yet another so-called “upside” of the Biden administration”: Figurehead puppet Joe reversed Trump’s executive order that had held back price increases for some essential medical drugs, such as insulin. Thanks to Joe’s executive order (really a CORPORATE executives’ order) the price of insulin just went “UPSIDE” over 500%.

    Speaking of the world’s highest cost of medical care, there is more and more evidence appearing (such as RNA in city sewage samples) that shows SARS CoV-2 was present in the U.S. BEFORE it appeared in China. Interestingly the second outbreak in China (Beijing) late last year was an ancestor of the then-current European strain; it had to be several years old (or months in a gain-of-function “research” lab) given the normal rate of SARS mutatiion, and had never been found in China before. Like the first infection of Wuhan at the time of the International Military Games, the second infection, of Beijing, was very strategically placed.

  8. Pivoting from the Middle East means pivoting toward China. Nothing new. the U.S. has been pivoting toward China since Obama’s Asia Pivot. In fact it pivoted against China all through the Victorian Age and all through the twentieth century. Do you think the Chinese people will forget the history? I ran across this video of the Chinese song “As war approaches, Chinese nuclear power!” – which is most interesting because at around 50 seconds you can see horses wearing gas masks:

    • Fear not, Motherland!
      To battle we will go,
      Employing the technology, the techniques,
      We learned from the West,
      Which dragged us into the modern world,
      Away from our antique civilization
      That we learned from Aryans of an earlier age
      And on which we were never able to improve on our own!

      Whoops—it just occurred to me, comrades:
      Remember that elaborate mechanical device
      that beguiled Marco Polo
      At the court of the Great Khan?
      Yes—the one with the mechanical animals or
      Whatever the fuck it was?
      You’ll remember that William of Rubruck had seen it earlier
      And had learned it had been built by a white man,
      Whom the Mongols had taken prisoner
      in the eastern stretches of Europe, if I’m recalling correctly!
      Polo, of course, that dipshit, thought it some Chinese wonder!

      Well, let’s forget that part of history, comrades!
      And let’s not look too closely into the question how
      we Chinese invented the compass!
      Yeah, right! We invented the compass—
      And if you’ll believe that, I have a bridge to sell you,
      Probably that glass-bottomed bridge that “we” built
      Over that gorge a few years back!
      Well, actually, it was Israelis who designed it—
      But let us forget that history, comrades!

      Fear not, Motherland! America is now weak,
      Mainly because—well, mainly because it now
      Has a lot of Chinese and other non-whites in it!
      We should be able to go there now and
      Kick their asses!
      All we have to remember is how to use a compass,
      So we don’t end up kicking the asses of Siberians instead!

      And remember, artists of the Motherland,
      When you paint a picture of a heroic Chinese sailor,
      in Western sailor’s garb,
      Give him Caucasian cheekbones, not our flatter faces!
      People expect it.

      • “Yellow Peril”-ism eh?

        Some White Nationalists also believe, without evidence, that Mayan-Andean civilization was also founded by a few Whites, who were later exterminated or blended into the so-called “Landbridge Asian” population.

        The invention of the compass in China long predated the Mongol expansion to Europe. It was almost certainly developed by Han Chinese.

        I doubt that White people also came to China and invented gunpowder, paper and printing there, and domesticated and improved a large number of animals and plants native to East Asia, creating the world’s most advanced and productive agricultural system, that fueled the largest, most sustained population boom.

        Also there is no evidence that Whites came to China and developed the navy and merchant fleets that during the Dark Ages of Europe plied the China Sea and Indian Ocean, visited Africa, and may have reached the Western hemisphere long before the Vikings.

        Furthermore your post above implying that Sogdiana was White is refuted by existing two- and three-dimensional Sogdian images depicting themselves with very oriental features. Yes I’m aware that blue-eyed blondes, some of them called Aryans, have existed in the Middle East and Central Asia, as far as India, for thousands of years.

        • “[Y]our post above implying that Sogdiana was White is refuted by existing two- and three-dimensional Sogdian images depicting themselves with very oriental features.”

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sogdia#/media/File:Central_Asian_Buddhist_Monks.jpeg

          “I’m aware that blue-eyed blondes, some of them called Aryans, have existed in the Middle East and Central Asia, as far as India, for thousands of years.”

          Some exist here, too, in Philadelphia, where they were once the dominant population, which built this now-decaying place.

          “Some White Nationalists also believe, without evidence, that Mayan-Andean civilization was also founded by a few Whites, who were later exterminated or blended into the so-called “Landbridge Asian” population.”

          I’m not sure there’s no evidence. Wasn’t there a wall painting of a blond man being sacrificed on an altar somewhere down there? And weren’t some of the conquistadors welcomed as returned red-haired gods or something like that? Regardless, it’s suggestive, to say the least, that the Western Hemisphere’s stone pyramids are found exactly where a bottle thrown into the Atlantic off the African coast would wash up.

          “The invention of the compass in China long predated the Mongol expansion to Europe.”

          That doesn’t mean it long predated Aryan contact with China.

          “It was almost certainly developed by Han Chinese.”

          A meaningless statement. The events are obscure, to put it mildly, and occurred, I believe, when the Chinese were in contact with Aryan-speakers.

          “I doubt that White people also came to China and invented gunpowder, paper and printing there, and domesticated and improved a large number of animals and plants native to East Asia, creating the world’s most advanced and productive agricultural system, that fueled the largest, most sustained population boom.”

          So you doubt it. I don’t. When gunpowder, paper, and printing reached Europe, they were exploited with a vigor that the Chinese had never shown toward them. That suggests the Chinese hadn’t come up with them in the first place but had simply been using them uninventively.

          Though I won’t bother looking up the scholarly material, which I once posted here at Occidental Dissent, a bit of research should show you that the Chinese would have difficulty making a convincing case that the use of bronze—to speak of one of the earliest markers of civilization—didn’t come to China from elsewhere. The question is undecided, as far as I know, but I’ve never heard any suggestion that it wasn’t an indigenous development in the Caucasian lands.

          “Also there is no evidence that Whites came to China and developed the navy and merchant fleets that during the Dark Ages of Europe plied the China Sea and Indian Ocean, visited Africa, and may have reached the Western hemisphere long before the Vikings.”

          When Marco Polo was in China, the splendid cities he saw were on the country’s east coast, which were trading by sea with Aryan India. The pagoda is an Indian creation, not a Chinese one, and its name is an Aryan word. The Chinese borrowed it just as they’ve borrowed, more recently, skyscrapers.

  9. “When gunpowder, paper, and printing reached Europe, they were exploited with a vigor that the Chinese had never shown toward them. That suggests the Chinese hadn’t come up with them in the first place but had simply been using them uninventively”:

    Yes, they also “played with” the compass, using it mostly for divination instead of advantage in warfare (especially naval warfare). Gunpowder and rockets were used for amusement instead of killing people; block printing, for mere recordkeeping instead of issuing political tracts and propaganda. I was already aware of your entire argument for Aryan superiority, but it is not proven. It is simpler to hold that the Chinese did invent these things (“The Four Great Inventions”) but did not have the same “needs” to use them as “Aryans” do.
