The #US "democracy" at its best: firing #Ukraine general prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko, considered one of Ukraine’s most promising pro-Western politicians who helped lead the country’s 1st major anti-Russia protest movement, known as the "Orange Revolution".

In 2010, Yuri Lutsenko was incarcerated for his political opposition to the Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, and his release became a cause célèbre for the European envoys who’d visited him in prison.
‘Fuck the EU’: US diplomat Victoria Nuland said.…
The #US main aim was to seek an opportunity to impose sanctions on #Russia to weaken it because it has prospered and started to be involved in World affairs that were the "US exclusivity".
#Ukraine was the opportunity to drag Russia into a confrontation with the West.

The #US administration is asking Congress to approve $3.5 bn to face the Ukrainian humanitarian crisis and $3 bn to support #Ukrain MoD.

It was much cheaper to offer a written guarantee that NATO won't deploy missiles/forces in Ukraine & spend this money on the American people.
Day 3 of war on #Ukraine has started with violent explosions north of the capital #Kyiv and in other parts of the country on the eastern, southern and northern fronts.
The objective seems to put pressure on the Ukranian government to abandon the capital along with the President.
The #US administration shall not impose sanctions on oil import from #Russia.
Why? The United States imported more gasoline and other refined petroleum products from Russia than any other country in the world.

Although the Iraqi army was significantly weakened after heavy losses in 1991 and the ensuing sanctions and disarmament, the Americans nevertheless pulled out nearly all the stops during the 2003 Battle of Baghdad. (1/7)
Please read the thread to the end!!!
For example at the battle of Baghdad airport in 2003 (if the statements of the former Iraqi officer al-Rawi are true):
According to him, the Americans are said to have used Phosphorus and a neutron bomb against 2,000 Iraqi soldiers and fighters during this battle, so that 2,000 Iraqi soldiers were killed at the airport alone.(3/7)

Two drones attacked the #US base at Victory camp close to #Baghdad airport, #Iraq, not far from where the two commanders #Qassem_Soleimani and #AbuMahdialMuhandis were assassinated by the US President Donald Trump.
Today, Two Drones attacked the #US forces in #Anbar, at Ayn al-Assad air base, the same base that #Iran bombed with 16 precision missiles in 2020, following Donald Trump's assassination of the two commanders #Iran Qassem Soleimani and #Iraq Abu Mahdi al-Muhandes.
If the #US responds to any attack against its bases, it becomes a combat force in #Iraq, violating the agreement with the Iraqi gov. The US forces will be legally considered an occupation force, giving more legitimacy to the local resistance.

Perdana Menteri Irak Mustafa Al-Kadhimi lolos dari upaya pembunuhan setelah serangan drone kepada kediamannya di #Baghdad. Diduga, ini akibat kemelut Pemilu #Irak yang menimbulkan protes dari pihak yang kalah terhadap hasilnya. Kita bahas👇

#Iraq #Iraqi
Setidaknya 6 Pasukan Pengaman PM #Irak terluka akibat harus berjibaku pada serangan #drone yang menyerang kompleks kediaman #AlKadhimi. Terdapat satu drone yang lolos dan menghantam kediaman sang PM. Beruntung, beliau selamat.

#Iraq #Iraqi #iraqelections #iraqelections2021
Hingga saat ini, Pemerintah #Irak masih menyelidiki siapa dalang dibalik upaya kudeta ini. Menurut Juru Bicara Kementerian Dalam Negeri, belum ada kelompok tertentu yang secara terbuka mendeklarasikan sebagai pihak yang mengirim serangan #drone.

Meanwhile, in #Pakistan, the country's political+military leaders are held hostage by extremist Islamists, literally forced to reconfirm their allegiance to Islam! The hordes threaten to storm the capital. Perfect script for a historical drama reliving 11th century in 21st. #TLP
...meanwhile, in #Islamabad, which resembles #Baghdad just before the Mongols stormed it. [Or #Rome as Nero fiddles]

Reported divisions within PM #ImranKhan Govt on how to deal with banned #TLP religious group threatening to storm #Pakistan capital #Islamabad. Meanwhile, discontent inside Punjab Police, where officers believe Govt and state abandoned them before religious extremists.

This all sounds eerily familiar & we all know what happened last time…

Incidentally, a step-by-step #Iraq withdrawal will impede & eventually kill the U.S. D-#ISIS presence too - where the fate of 10,000s or #ISIS-linked individuals remains entirely up in the air.
There are a lot of unknowns here:

- What's "step by step"?
- Are the steps conditional or unconditional/predetermined?
- What's the timeline?
- OIR has no combat troops, so language here is ambiguous.

Is #Baghdad playing politics again & making a mountain out of a molehill?
I'd guess that NSC #MiddleEast Coordinator McGurk asserted the existing USG position -- that U.S. troops won't be in #Iraq forever; the mission is changing (combat to advisory); and a withdrawal will gradually happen.

#Baghdad has pounced on that to assuage internal concerns.

I’m going to share a few snapshots and moments along the way during my visit to Iraq, to provide some color.

I’m reporting for a forthcoming book that asks: What happened in Iraq after America invaded in 2003, and what broke around the world as a result of that war. #Iraq
The last few days I visited Najaf and Karbala. Here some pilgrims rest in the plaza outside the Shrine of Imam Ali in Najaf at midday, with the temperature at 117 degrees Fahrenheit. #Iraq #Najaf Image
