Forming an Iraqi Government: Secret Talks Between the UN and Hezbollah, an Exchange of Messages in Mesopotamia, and More ejmagnier.com/2018/10/14/for…
Faleh al-Fayyad, the head of National Security and commander of PMU met with #USA Brett McGurk and informed him that “the US list of terrorists applies outside Iraq and certainly not against an Iraqi citizen (Sheikh Kawtharani holds dual citizenship)”.

Moqtada dropped Abadi and closed his ears to Sayyed Ammar al-Hakim who promoted a US ally, the head of the Iraqi Intelligence Service, as PM. Moqtada is angry with Iran but not to the point of serving Iran’s enemies. He dropped Abadi.

Let’s talk about a recent @Reuters piece written by Andrew Torchia & @bozorgmehr claiming U.S. sanctions on #Iran are hurting “ordinary Iranians.”
reuters.com/article/us-ira…
2)
“…sanctions reimposed by U.S. President Donald Trump since August have played havoc…”

“It is one of many ways in which the sanctions are hurting ordinary Iranians while benefiting those with access to hard currency.”
3)
First of all, this claim/argument is an old lie.

A United Nations “special rapporteur” sunk to a similar low, claiming U.S. sanctions are violating human rights in #Iran.

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

THREAD✔
1/
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

#SRO | URGENT - Abu Murshid al-Bardan, former commander inside #Daraa #FSA S-F Jaysh al-Thawra, has won many things from #Russia, with #Syria'n regime very angry against Russia. Fifth Division to be led only by #FSA leaders with the troops they want to recruit (1).
#SRO | URGENT - This Fifth Corp / Division to be only answering to #Russia (contrary to the first attempt, recently dissolved, that was linked to #Syria'n regime forces). Yes, here we are : a large "#FSA" army, under #Russia protection and command, is now formed in S-#Syria (2).
#SRO | URGENT - Imagine the face of regime officials, officiers and supporters... #Russia giving amounts of money, power and support for a "terrorist al-Qaeda group" (not anymore ?) as Jaysh al-Thawra to become de facto an autonomous army (Fifth Corp) in S-#Syria (3).

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

Interesting how #Iran's state-run IRNA news agency is already reporting the attacks "killed and wounded" what it described as "militants."

Tehran is in desperate need to stage a show of force.

Therefore, it's propaganda machine will be bloating this.

#Iran missile attack into #Syria
Unconfirmed reports are citing this footage, claiming the attack was launched from Iran's western region of Kermanshah, "striking IS positions east of the Euphrates."

With U.S. forces stationed in that area, their reports will be needed.

1. The #Iran Action Group created by @SecPompeo last month released its report. Iran's role in the region, which other administrations overlooked, appears to be under intense scrutiny. #Houthis in #Yemen have been identified alongside groups responsible for attacks against the US
2. The report stated that consequences of #Iran's meddling include its lethal ballistic missiles, which advanced its proxies military capabilities: "Yemen’s #Houthi militants have fired numerous ballistic missiles into #Saudi Arabia, including two directed at Riyadh in May 2018."
3. The report also indicated that since 2012: "#Iran has spent over $16 billion propping up the #Assad regime and supporting its other partners and proxies in #Syria, #Iraq, and #Yemen."

Head of #PMU, Abu Izrael is Shia, burning a dead Sunni, possibly ISIS, but it is not a justification. You can’t be barbaric & call others barbaric. Besides, burning dead people & enjoying it is a psychopathic behavior.
Eight thousand Shia Houthi children soldiers who are not even 13 years old recruited as fighters and human shields. They are also given drugs and are sexually abused in #Yemen

#Moscow: S-300 to #Syria in 2 weeks. #Israel will be limited to bombing #Syria from afar, coordinate any flight above #Lebanon and #Syria with #Russia hours before and #Damascus won't hesitate to bring down an #Israeli jet over #Lebanon and Syria.

This is a major blow to #Israel and #USA.

#Syria can also, potentially, bring down any hostile force in the air occupying #Syrian territory.

#Riussia, by delivering the S-300 to #Syria, needs to deliver protection system around it.

#Russia is hitting 2 birds (Israel & US) in 1 stone (S-300 to #Syria).

I don't think this is the only price #Israel will pay for the 15 Russian servicemen killed. More to come.

Adding: #Iran Bavar to #Syria

Israel omnipotence is coming to an end.

My goodness: here's a prime example of policy advocacy on #Syria based either on ignorance, or [hopefully not] malign intent.

This is *riddled* with inaccuracy & misinformation.

@steelejourno says the West should force an opposition surrender in #Syria:

theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
@steelejourno #pt: @steelejourno says the US, UK & #France are “less honorable” in seeking to delay #Syria & #Russia’s “success” in regaining territory.

- They seek to enable a meaningful political process, in which there’s an opposition entity to sit at the table. I’d say that is honorable.
@steelejourno #pt: Here, @steelejourno says UK, US, France & "Gulf Arab monarchies” want ceasefires to protect rebels, not civilians.

In #Idlib, nothing could be further from the truth. None of those countries have *any* ties to rebel groups in #Idlib, who only equal ~0.5% of the population.
