  1. Sibel is admirable in stating very clearly that hers is a working hypothesis. The group interview helped me to understand this complex issue better. Often several people discussing helps clarify the story. I am glad Peter gave Greg Palast credit. In this discussion, I see no direct analysis of Israel nor AIPAC trying to provoke the U.S. to involve itself once again in the Middle East directly. Sibel did mention Richard Perle. Both of these players were clearly involved in Iraq. We see two Israeli bombing attacks violating Syrian sovereignty, yet there is no action by either Syria against Israel, nor the U.S. to directly intervene. Rather than consider what does the U.S. interest have, the question might be what does Israeli interest have?

  2. I agree the roundtable format was great and well done. This group in particular is excellent. Really clear, intelligent, and un-dogmatic.

    I wonder if any significant developments with China are pending in the next couple weeks. Maybe a resolution with one of the conflicts with Japan?

    Thanks BFP – we can’t find this quality of independent analysis anywhere else.

    Interesting to hear about the Spanish “lone wolves” from Pepe. This is pretty much the same scenario that happened in Canada only a few days after the Boston bombing: 2 members of “Al Qaeda of Iran” were arrested by RCMP for supposedly plotting to blow up a Via Rail Train from Toronto to New York. Of course, it was only a coincidence that just that very day, the Canadian government was about to pass a new Anti-Terroism bill.

  4. Pepe also pointed out that the Chechen diaspora were being called back to fight just a short time before. Bad timing for them if they were rounded up.
