Sott.net senior editor Joe Quinn spoke with PressTV in the immediate aftermath of the FUKUS airstrikes against Syria late last week.
Describing Israel as the "quiet elephant in the room," Quinn noted that despite US influence over events in Syria being largely trumped by Russia in recent years, the tripartite alliance of France, the UK and US are continuing military operations at the behest of Israel, which is hysterical about encroaching Iranian influence across the Middle East, and what that entails for Israeli regional hegemony.
But it's a losing game, he stressed. They are losing their historical positions in the Middle East, and are desperately trying to do something to stop that from happening. At the same time, however, they are apparently not so desperate that they will risk a 'hot war' with Russia.
In the process of 'projecting their strength', they have exposed how weak they have become militarily, but their avalanche of lies in the media about how 'successful' the event was for them indicates that they remain dominant in the information war.
