<Brief Thread> on some CIA reports as the #PKK insurgency was beginning in #Turkey.
HT @Ayei_Eloheichem, who found these materials. He covers Russia, Israel, terrorism, espionage, and more. Give him a #FF.
In August 1985, the CIA believed that the #PKK insurgency in #Turkey that had begun exactly a year before was all-but finished because of the internal divisions in the Kurdish population and the gangsterism of the PKK, plus no support from Iraqi Kurds. bit.ly/2uk88k3

I forewarn anyone reading this article:

There are some of the most graphic images of atrocities committed by Islam against children inside (there is a warning message before images)
They include Nigerians burnt alive, their bodies disembowled, beheaded... But it has to be shown.
Inside the article is a journey discovering the hypocrisy of #BigTech & Mainstream Media.
Example:
Fulani Herdsmen of Nigeria are a radical Islamic extremist group responsible for the murder of tens of thousands of Christians.
Google/Wiki show HAPPY pics- they are MURDERERS.

#Israel confirmed what I (exclusively) wrote in my article that it was its jets responsible for hitting #Iraq sec forces (Hashd al-Shaabi) command and control centre with the task to fight #ISIS and prevents the terrorist group from crossing into #Iraq

But wait:
The reason why #Israel declared its responsibility is only because Kataeb Hezbollah in #Iraq has decided (and voiced it) to attack #USA troops in #Iraq.

The US believes, when Israel assume its responsibility, this would stop the revenge: NO+

Actually what #Israel (and the #US) is not revealing is the fact that US airport in al-Hasaka was used for the hit, in coordination with the US forces deployed in #Syria and #Iraq, informed about the presence of Israeli jets and their bank of objective+

#US #Iraq war veteran Vince Emanuele: "Moral injury is the real reason why #US veterans are committing suicide, as they realize all the horrors of war & innocent people killed were for nothing but #US corporate interests"

rt.com/usa/431777-us-…
#US veterans marched in #NewOrleans on July 1, to raise awareness for the high rates of veteran suicides across #America. They were wearing ‘dead masks’ to represent the high cost of war.
US Department of Veterans Affairs report: Average number of veterans suicide is 20 per day
US #Iraq war veteran Emanuele: In fact-the #US government, especially under @realDonaldTrump is exacerbating the problem by continuing militaristic operations all over the world-If US government was interested in preventing veteran suicides-it would stop creating so many veterans

#Israel should be happy to have the Syrian Army back on the borders in Assuweida-Daraa-Quneitra as it was the case for thirty odd years without any significant incident,rather than protecting uncontrollable salafi-Wahhabi radicals who can wake up from one day two another & attack
The war in Syria is almost over: #ISIS will continue attacking (with no strategic purposes like in #Iraq), #Idlib and al-Hasaka are considered under occupation forces. Now the Syrian government can call for general elections any time in liberated #Syria

The last remaining pocket is expected to fall slowly but surely. It might take some time after the US-Russia summit next month to agree on removing #ISIS (Jaish Khaled bin al-waleed) from Quneitra.

Civilians living in #Idlib will think carefully.

Yesterday I created a thread in which my objective was to point out my horrible experience at the @DeptVetAffairs office when I returned back, for mid-tour leave, from combat operation in #Iraq. Mind you, this was Feb 2005.
I couldn't believe how I was treated! I was sobbing uncontrollably, shaking, & suicidal. I wanted to end it! No more pain! And then to top it off, we were escorted off of VA property because my brother was shouting at the VA staff as to why they weren't going to help me.
Although the point was well received by 99% of you, after reviewing the thread, I realized how selfish it was. I used "I" when I should've been using "WE". I was NEVER alone throughout my combat tours. Deployed troops bond, show esprit de corps, and latch onto one another.

#Syria
Syrian Government giving Syrian citizenship to 2 million non-Syrian people.
Its including Iranian soldiers, Hezbollah militants and all other pro #Iran militia group members and their families from #Afganistan #Iraq #Iran #Pakistan
It will increase tensions between secular Arabs and religious shia people. If you remember in last 3 year, some clashes happened between Syrian security forces and shia militas.
And government banned shia and sunni religious rituals in open areas.

Also past month Syrian Government started to planning ignore land registers of millions of Syrian refugees.

Reading Jake Sullivan’s latest @TheAtlantic piece, I wonder why such individuals & outlets are so alarmed about regime change in #Iran.
theatlantic.com/international/…
Do they benefit in Tehran's mullahs remaining in power?
They may claim not, yet actions speak louder than words.
(2)
Sullivan’s entire argument is based on the fact that sanctions, and more generally a firm policy against #Iran, will bear no fruit. Taking a look at the past 15 months, in contrast to the #Obama years, much of Iran’s malign behavior has taken a nosedive.
(3)
Sullivan praises himself (& thus the #Obama team) of negotiating the #IranDeal. What he & others like him refuse to explain is the fact that the people of #Iran, #Syria & other countries across the region are paying the price of their “achievement” with their very lives…

As #Iran's currency crisis continues, this Ayandeh Bank branch in Tehran burned in flames today.
If you ask me, this is an act of arson by regime elements who emptied the bank in advance. Afterwards, they can easily claim they cannot return ordinary people's money.

1/ In the wake of the @nytimes piece on today's #Iraq, nyti.ms/2IdMaJa, here is my bird's eye view of the #IraqElections2018 in the context of the standoff between #Iran and the US in the region..../2
2/ As I have stated most recently in @ForeignPolicy here, bit.ly/2jPaYZw, Iraq has seen a convergence of Iranian and US interests since 2003. This has led to a degree of mutual accommodation, despite the fact that each has wanted to get rid of the other's presence....3/
3/ They each have their favorites, but they also each have tried to sway the middle, and to pursue their interests playing the middle. And whoever has been in the middle became a consummate juggler for as long as they could: Jaafari, Maliki, Abadi, and whoever is up next.../4

#BreakingNews #Exclusive
Iraq's International Federal Police confiscates 31 boxes containing hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash en route from #Iran to #Iraq in support of Hadi al-Ameri, head of the Tehran proxy Badr Organization.
#Iraq activists say this is outside the country's parliament only days before the May 12th general election

People chanting:
"#Iran, out, out" & something against IRGC Quds Force chief Qassem Suleimani

(Can anyone provide more info? Thanks in advance)
#Iraq general election posters (scheduled for Saturday) put up in Isfahan, #Iran.

Millions are living in poverty across Iran, and yet the regime spends money on such ridiculous causes for another country.

Shows how Tehran's influence in Iraq is considered vital for the mullahs.
