#Iraq
Although the anti-IS camp managed to:
1. remove Haidar Abadi, the US candidate
2. selected the Speaker Mohammad Halbousi

It is incorrect to say Iraq is in the hands of #Iran.

Adel Abdel Mahdi is a potential candidate as a PM and is welcomed by both Iran and #USA. 1/+
#Iraq won't go against the #USA and will select, including the anti-US camp, a candidate that doesn't provoke the Americans.

The real problem is here: Will Iraq abide by the unilateral US sanctions? That is the real burden on the future PM.2/+

By removing Abadi, the US has lost a candidate that was not ready to balance the relationship between Tehran & Washington. That was the US biggest mistake in the last months, trying to impose Abadi (despite US denial). 3/+

Let’s talk about a recent post in the European Council on Foreign Relations (@ecfr) website regarding sanctions on #Iran.
And the complete lie the European Council has resorted to.
ecfr.eu/article/commen…
(2)
At a first glance, the article seems to care about #Iran’s people “reporting shortages in life-saving medicine.”

Of course, the article fails to provide any source to show how they put forward such an argument.
(3)
“The UN special rapporteur for human rights warned that the sanctions will undermine human rights in the country, drive people into poverty, and make imported goods unaffordable.”

This is a complete lie & I’ll explain why.

"They've stolen our money & lie about returning it"

This attack was unprecedented & highly significant. Never ever #Israel went as far.

The message Israel is sending is strategic & a game changer.

Will #Iran accept, abide by it, or respond?

Syria: Israel launched a missile attack on #Damascus airport abcn.ws/2NJc0ae
I strongly believe #Israel, via #US media, will release indirect information and details about it in the coming days. We see.

#Israel attacked one specific target on the runway, sending a message to Iran to refrain from delivering #Syria what #Russia didn't.

Was told that "attack won't change Iran's intention to provide #Damascus with the equivalent of the S-300, as promised."

Iran's regime finds it very troubling how Russia's S-400 & S-300 systems in #Syria have remained silent in all the attacks launched by Israel against #Iran-backed Assad targets.

#BreakingNews:
Mohammad al-Halbusi, with 169 votes, is the new Speaker of #Iraq. Halbusi was al-Anbar governor.

Hasan Karim and Rashid Jalil are expected to be selected in the next hour as the two vice Speakers.
A first official victory to the anti-#USA camp (pro-#Iran): Halbusi was presented and supported by al-Bina' coalition, the Maliki-Ameri (et al) group, even if the vice Speaker will be from the Sadrist (in the next hour).

Hasan Karim was indeed elected minutes ago as a first vice-Speaker of the #Iraq/i Parliament with 209 votes (he is a sadrist).

The number of votes indicates Moqtada and the largest coalition (Maliki-Ameri) have agreed on prior voting.

"Those who interfere with our liberties will pay a price," @SecPompeo tells reporters and specifically mentions past election interference actions by #Russia.
"What Secretary Kerry has done is unseemly and unprecedented," says @SecPompeo about @JohnKerry and his efforts to save #Iran #JCPOA. "It is beyond inappropriate."
"Actively undermining U.S. policy as a former secretary of state is literally unheard of," adds @SecPompeo.

1 of 5) This emerging uranium cartel is forming as a confederacy with no allegiance to any State or Rule of Law. It is evolving from globalists for the benefit of globalists7

@christianllamar @4AllSoulKind @RealMichaelGuy @DJLugoff
2 of 7) The goal of this cartel is to exercise future international control of uranium resources and processes.

As is often the case, the answer is found within the question:
3 of 7) “Why is there an investigation of collusion between Russia, Donald Trump and the Trump campaign when there is smoking gun evidence of collusion and more between Russian and other foreign assets, Hillary and Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation?”

THREAD: As protests continue and the rial tumbles, #Iran is increasingly seen as an economic basket case that has squandered its chance to join the ranks of the #BRICs. Here are 7 charts that challenge that view.

Back in January, I told @folha reporter @DiogoBercito that I saw parallels between the Brazilian protests that have been running since 2014 and those in Iran. In both contexts you hear calls to overthrow the government.
www1.folha.uol.com.br/mundo/2018/01/…
This is the same reaction to the same macroeconomic failures. The frustrated cry of the Iranian protestor is the same cry as that of the Brazilian protestor. Sure, there is some local political and economic dialect. But the language of corruption and inequality is the same.

Let's talk about yet another @WashingtonPost piece cheer-leading for #Iran's regime!

What makes it even more interesting is the ad on the right talking about "Real journalism..."

In this thread, let's take a look at a few WaPo takes I've had the pleasure of debunking...

@FareedZakaria, with his show on @CNN, is a true #Iran regime apologist/lobbyist.

@jrezaian, hiding behind his time in #Iran's jail (which is quite a suspicious matter of it's own), is yet another Tehran apologist/lobbyist.

Amb. @nikkihaley is spot on:

"Haley accused Russia and Iran of having little interest in a political solution and called their actions those of 'cowards interested in a bloody military conquest.'"

"If Assad, Russia and Iran continue down the path they are on, the consequences will be dire," she said.

"I also want to reiterate what I said last week to the Assad regime and anyone else contemplating the use of chemical weapons in Syria," Haley added. "The U.S. followed through when we said that we would respond to the use of chemical weapons. We stand by this warning."
