MESOPOTAMIA NEWS : TRUMP WARNS ASSAD

Hassan Hassan حَسَنْ‏Verified account @hxhassan  26 May 2018

Definitely an important statement from the US about the regime’s offensive in southwestern Syria. 1) uncharacteristically strong remarks about a region widely thought to be outside the US purview 2) it reaffirms that the US is party to the de-escalation agreement in the SW.

MESOPOTAMIA NEWS : THE ORTHODOX UNORTHODOX ERDOGAN – The unorthodox theory behind Erdogan’s monetary policy

Marc Edward Hoffman May 25, 2018  – AL MONITOR –  Article Summary –  Economists and investors are not buying the controversial economic theory invoked by Turkey’s president to justify low interest rates in the face of high inflation and the lira’s collapse. Although international observers have come to decry Turkey’s slide into authoritarianism under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, they have also tended to treat his rule as a boon to the economy based on the assumption that he is ultimately a pragmatist who guarantees more stability than the alternatives. For example, when the June 2015 election delivered a hung parliament and raised the specter of political deadlock, markets went into a tailspin and remained volatile until November, when snap elections returned a majority for Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party.

MESOPOTAMIA NEWS „TOTALER KURSVERFALL“ : Die Türkische Zentralbank kann die Lira nicht stützen

Von Christian Geinitz , Wien  – FAZ – Aktualisiert am 25.05.2018-18:27

Eine abermalige Zinserhöhung der türkischen Notenbank ist verpufft. Die Landeswährung Lira verliert weiter an Wert. Das könnte den Wahlerfolg von Präsident Erdogan gefährden.Die Türkei hat an den Finanzmärkten derart viel Vertrauen verspielt, dass selbst hektische Rettungsversuche den Kapitalabzug nicht aufhalten können. Auf einer Krisensitzung am Mittwochabend hatte die Zentralbank den Zinssatz für Spätausleihungen (LLW) um 3 Prozentpunkte auf 16,5 Prozent erhöht, nachdem die Landeswährung Lira an den Tagen zuvor von einem Tiefstand zum nächsten gefallen war.

MESOPOTAMIA NEWS ANALYSIS : Game on: The New Strategy of the US and its allies in the Middle East – Jerusalem Post, 25/5 – By Jonathan Spyer

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s outlining of 12 conditions that Iran would need to meet in order to make possible a new nuclear deal amounts to a call for the wholesale reversal of Iranian regional strategy.  The conditions stated are not only, or primarily, concerned with the nuclear program.  In addition to a call for the IRGC’s Qods Force to end ‘support for “terrorists” and “militant” partners around the world,’ there are specific demands for cessation of support to Lebanese Hizballah, the Iraqi Shia militias, the Houthis in  Yemen and the Assad regime in Syria.
