  1. SouthFront’s Grim Assessment of the Mosul Operation:

    It predicts Trump’s administration will be involved in a new quagmire in Iraq. If he is smart, he will let Putin decide where and how United States forces will be most effective, if Russia decides to help the Iraqi army end the Daesh once and for all, and this might be after helping Assad liberate Raqqa and Deir-Ezzor.

    1. SOF,

      Me thinks Southfront is being too pessimistic about the Mosul op. It is going to require some actual U.S. troops but I think ISIS supposed military staying power is a myth. The reality is the Syrian Arab Army simply hasn’t had the manpower freed from more pressing fronts to deal with them or sufficiently cover the flanks for an advance on Deir Ez Zor to lift the sieges there. My best guess is the SAA will try to free the besieged Shi’a towns, a high priority for the Iranians, in Idlib province and advance toward the jihadi stronghold itself before pivoting eastward to tackle ISIS — possibly with the help of the Egyptian and Iraqi armies. Congress has been frantically trying to pass legislation to bar military to military cooperation with Russia in order to prevent the neocons’ worst nightmare of JSOC and spetsnaz guys posing for selfies together in Raqqa ala Torgau in 1945. But the legislation the last time I checked contains a potential presidential waiver citing vital U.S. national security interests.

  2. Does Hillary have kuru, the cannibal disease?

     "Kuru, a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy, is a disease of the nervous system that causes physiological and neurological effects which ultimately lead to death. It is characterized by progressive cerebellar ataxia, or loss of coordination and control over muscle movements.
    
    The preclinical or asymptomatic phase, also called the incubation period, averages between 10–13 years, but can be as short as 5 and has been estimated to last as long as 50 years or more after initial exposure. The youngest individual recorded to have kuru was 12 years old.[7]
    
    The clinical stage, which begins at the first onset of symptoms, lasts an average of 12 months. The clinical progression of kuru is divided into three specific stages, the ambulant, sedentary and terminal stages. While there is some variation in these stages between individuals, they are highly conserved among the affected population. Before the onset of clinical symptoms, an individual can also present with prodromal symptoms including headache and joint pain in the legs.
    
    In the first (ambulant) stage, the infected individual may exhibit unsteady stance and gait, decreased muscle control, tremors, difficulty pronouncing words (dysarthria), and titubation. This stage is named because the individual is still able to walk around despite symptoms.
    
    In the second (sedentary) stage, the infected individual in is incapable of walking without support and suffers ataxia and severe tremors. Furthermore, the individual shows signs of emotional instability and depression, yet exhibits uncontrolled and sporadic laughter. Despite the other neurological symptoms, tendon reflexes are still intact at this stage of the disease.[8]
    
    In the third and final (terminal) stage, the infected individual’s existing symptoms, like ataxia, progress to the point where they are no longer capable of sitting without support. New symptoms also emerge: the individual develops dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, which can lead to severe malnutrition. They may also become incontinent, lose the ability to speak and become unresponsive to their surroundings, despite maintaining consciousness.[8] "
    
  3. Andy,
    This video mentions that but also talks about David Brock of Bitcoin. I have had my reservations about Bitcoin being some kind of beta-test for a cashless society. It’s supposed to be private, but if you have someone like David Brock involved how private is it with his connections? C an someone verify this information?

    Also there is a push towards cashless:

    Can we trust something on a computer screen? It’s very seductive because of the promise of privacy but at the end of the day, where is it leading us and can’t someone take it down on a moment’s notice. I’m not a techie, so the technology is a bit difficult for me to wrap my head around, but the general concept seems too closely tied to what the bankers want to do ultimately.
