    Pentagon chief supports Iran nuclear agreement

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TyHmsIXW6bE

    Published on 4 Oct 2017

    The US defense secretary has openly contradicted President Donald Trump’s
    position on the Iran nuclear deal.James Mattis made the remarks while testifying
    before the U-S senate. He said Iran was fundamentally in compliance with the Joint
    Comprehensive Plan of Action and that it was in the U-S national security interest
    to stick to the deal. General James Dunford, Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, also
    said Tehran was not in material breach of the deal. The remarks come ahead of
    Trump’s announcement on whether to stay in the 20-15 agreement. Trump has
    described the accord as one of the worst deals he has seen. Last month, the
    International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed Iran’s compliance with the deal.

    Something odd is happening in the Middle East power block that will
    surely get the neoCon/Dems in a panic and something else to blame
    on Trump......Oil prices , arms deals ,Syria & US foreign policies some
    reasons for closer ties with Moscow and Ryadh.... Russia has also been
    getting closer with Israel and their up and down relationship with Turkey,
    China ,India ,Pakistan and other countries in a charm and sales offensive
    which is bound to worry the Pentagon , NATO and its allies...

    What is behind Saudi king’s 'historic' Moscow visit?

    Published on 4 Oct 2017

    Saudi Arabia's foreign ministry hailed this week's visit of King Salman bin Abdulaziz
    Al Saud to Moscow as "historic".

    Riyadh and Moscow have been at odds for decades. The two oil superpowers
    produce almost half of the world's crude - and fiercely compete for market shares.
    Moscow's efforts that propped up Syrian President Bashar Assad's government have
    pitted Russia against Saudis and other Sunni Arab states.

    Yet, in the past year, an unexpected rapprochement between the two countries has
    been in the making amid Moscow's deteriorating ties with Washington and US
    President Donald Trump's unpredictable policy shifts.

    Al Jazeera’s Rory Challands reports.

    The Debate – Russia-Saudi Arabia Ties

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-Z6WEZxBNg

    Published on 5 Oct 2017

    The Saudi King is heading a delegation in what's called a historic visit to Russia. On
    the surface, there is much the 2 disagree on, such as Syria & Iran. However,
    agreements on weapons sales, oil & a promise to work to resolve Middle East crises
    peacefully may breach gaps. So, whose policies will change, if at all, after this trip?
    Will Saudis back down on support for terrorists & the ideology that inspires them?
    Or will Russians be charmed by Saudis?

    Deal Ordeal: NATO worries over Turkish purchase of Russian S-400 defense systems

    Published on 14 Sep 2017
    President Erdogan of Turkey has slammed NATO's concerns over the purchase
    of a Russian S-400 Defense System. He said that, from now on, Turkey would
    take control of its own security.According to the manufacturers, the S-400
    system can shoot down up to 80 targets at a time with a range of about 400km.
    The deal is proving to be a worry for NATO allies - who say it's incompatible with
    the alliance systems already in Turkey.

    The former top White House official Steve Bannon hinted that the Trump administration was planning to soon declare that the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization and move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, perhaps as soon as next week.

    But a senior administration official disputed that such an announcement was in the works for next week...whenever such an announcement transpires, war in the Middle East will follow soon thereafter.

    Iraqi forces enter Kirkuk as Kurds flee

    Iraqi government forces have entered central Kirkuk after taking
    key installations outside the disputed city from Kurdish fighters.
    Thousands of people fled the city ahead of the Iraqi advance.
    The Iraqi military moved into Kirkuk three weeks after the Kurdistan
    Region held a controversial independence referendum.

    They are aiming to retake areas under Kurdish control since Islamic
    State militants swept through the region.Residents of Kurdish-controlled
    areas, including Kirkuk, overwhelmingly backed secession from Iraq in
    a 25 September vote.While Kirkuk is outside Iraqi Kurdistan, Kurdish
    voters in the city were allowed to take part.
