Jeddah, Secretary of State John Kerry announced a deal with Saudi Arabia on a new “peace initiative” related to the ongoing Saudi invasion of Yemen. As with all previous such initiatives, Kerry’s statement laying out the plan demanded that the Shi’ite Houthis, who the Saudis are fighting, must immediately surrender all territory and unilaterally disarm before being allowed to participate in any talks.
10 hours of talks between Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ended today with no deal in place, saying they made only incremental progress on a deal for cooperation in their respective wars in Syria, and no deal is imminent.
The invasion of Syria that so many people have been warning about is now happening.

The main architect of Washington’s plan to rule the world has abandoned the scheme and called for the forging of ties with Russia and China. Brzezinski’s article has largely been ignored by the media, it shows that powerful members of the policymaking establishment no longer believe that Washington will prevail in its quest to extent US hegemony across the Middle East and Asia.
