A lot of friends and colleagues have asked me over the past few days how worried I am about the current situation with Iran. The short answer is, very. Let me explain. <thread>
In the nearly 9 years I have been working @WinWithoutWar and working on these issues, this is by far the closest the United States has been to a major military conflict with Iran. Neither side has reason or intention to back down at this point, and all signs point to war. 2/
The US is currently led by a man already impeached & awaiting trial for putting the nation's interests second to his own on foreign policy. He is erratic, reckless, and has demonstrated time and again that he has no understanding of basic facts or complexity of these issues. 3/

…Speaking of John Bolton

👋 @AmbJohnBolton

#Hindsightis2020
.@AmbJohnBolton paid #CambridgeAnalytica for psychographic targeting via his SuperPAC in 2013-14. Ads targeted voters categorized in 5 groups. Look familiar? Then you were targeted

#Hindsightis2020
@AmbJohnBolton Known for aggressive foreign policy decisions leading to the #IraqWar, he had 3 goals w/#CambridgeAnalytica

Interlude #2: Next episode by Dr Dre featuring Snoop Dogg. '2001' is a perfect album from start to finish. open.spotify.com/track/4LwU4Vp6…
Pre-911 I'd not gotten into History or Geopolitics much. I didn't feel like Nations & how they ran themselves would hold many surprises. Expect folks creating a broken/backwards system to themselves be broken/backwards. #911 reminded humans how quickly this stuff can matter /23
End of the day on 911 I felt like I all I knew for sure was America was about to smoke somebody, maybe a whole bunch of somebodies & that it would be nice to know who actually did it & why. What else can you do? You wait for the President to speak. Yeah. *That* guy. /24

Having taken a moment for thought, the "T" could be for telephone, but we know it's for far more, so that doesn't really work.
As it's a capital "T", #Trump fits nicely...

.@Chase Bank has shut down the accounts of 3 right-wing personalities in what appears to have been arbitrary executive decisions not based on an official company policy. theepochtimes.com/chase-bank-den…
The account of @MartinaMarkota was one of the first known to have been closed in this manner. “After a recent review of your account, we have decided to end our relationship with you,” reads a Jan. 24 letter: documentcloud.org/documents/5943…
A video by undercover journalism org @Project_Veritas revealed Enrique Tarrio's account was “being closed by compliance,” because his website redirected to his online shop, 1776.shop “…and therefore couldn’t conduct required due diligence.”

#QAnon post No. 2805...
#Q's msg to @Comey. This is straight up letting us know, that this is a msg for #Comey's eyes. Some references are meant for him, while the gist of the msg can be felt thru its obtuseness.

It's nice that we absolved #ColinPowell of his HUGE role in the #IraqWar because now he says stuff like this about Trump.

It would be superb if we had a collective historical memory in this country, but then again, #ColumbusDay is still a federal holiday, so, maybe not.
#GeorgeWBush created the climate that got us Trump. He stole that election. He got us into 2 wars we are still in nearly two decades later. He tortured people in our names. He created the war on women AND the evangelical war on gays. & he convinced Collins to vote for #Kavanaugh.
So whatever #ColinPowell has to say about Trump must be viewed through the lens of GWB, #Guantanamo, #AbuGhraib and Powell sitting there on your TV screens with pie charts and fake aerial shots of WMDs.

As @soychicka shows below, some of the scandal-ridden Bush administration emails received by #Kavanaugh came from #Smartech’s server. How many more that we haven’t seen? The Bush WH DELETED 22 MILLION Smartech emails that weren’t retrieved until 09. Russia hacked Smartech! 1/
3/ Here is my own sourced Thread about #Kavanaugh and #Smartech. Kavanaugh cannot be conformed until we confirm what exactly has gone on with Smartech.

1/ This week marked the 15th anniversary of the fall of #Baghdad. The ground invasion, toppling of the statue of Saddam Hussein and the outbreak of lawlessness all happened in the space of three days. From our archives, this is what those 3 days sounded like.
2/ Journalist and Iraqi Kurd @ayubnuri recalls the initial days of jubilation after the removal of Saddam Hussein. bit.ly/2quEY0G
3/ As we know, the celebration in #Iraq didn’t last. Journalists @maassp and @EllenKnickmeyer both went into the war zone without being embedded or protected by US forces. They witnessed the ongoing violence that followed the toppling of the capitol. bit.ly/2EK8gwt
