2 bombers over South China Sea
July 7, 2017 - Two U.S. bombers flew over the contested South China Sea as a show of force to China. The Air Force directed two B-1B Lancer bombers from Guam to make the flight, following a similar flight they made over the same sea last month. The move was directed as President Trump prepares for his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping while at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
China did not view the flyover as an issue.
Qatar boycott ends
July 7, 2017 - Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Bahrain rescind their 13 demands of Qatar, vow more measures against it. They said their list of 13 demands of Qatar is void, vowing to enact new measures against it.
Doha's refusal of their demands is proof of its links to terror groups. Some of their demands were shutting down Al-Jazeera, downgrading ties with Iran and closing a Turkish military base.
Measures taken by Saudi would be aimed at the Qatari government not its people. The Qatar royal family and Muslim Brotherhood Yusuf al-Qaradawi are blacklisted.
Qatar – the next round
Saudis said they will respond to the Qatari answer in time, without providing any further details. (Trump never tells in advance) Qatar is supported by Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Russia and Hellzbollah. A Saudi invasion must be coordinated with the United Sates, because the Saudis need US support. SoS Tillerson called the demands made of Qatar too extreme.
This is very sad. Qatar and Turkey are both terrorist nation-states. Saudi exported ISIS. Turkey-Qatar ARE ISIS. Are ALL Arab nations going to become - Iran?
Turkey coup was PHONY
July 5, 2017 - Just as I have been reporting, Evil Erdogan arranged a phony coup to seize power. This did not qualify a coup bid in any sense.
Sweden reports Erdogan orchestrated 2016 July coup in Turkey. The failed coup attempt in Turkey is nothing but a false flag orchestrated by Turkey’s autocratic President Recep Tayip Erdoğan and his henchmen to create a pretext for a mass persecution of critics. This was a series of false flags under the authoritarian Erdogan regime.
