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)”. ejmagnier.com/2018/10/14/for… …
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. ejmagnier.com/2018/10/14/for… …
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.
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.
Ex Al Qaeda leader Nabeel Naim: "Baghdadi is a US agent. It's known that US released him from prison and he spent $20 to $30 million to establish these ISIS groups. The first ISIS camps were in Jordan supervised by US Marines
#Shoigu: "As for the unified air defense control system, we have started to deliver the equipment and will fully complete all work on preparation and training of the crews, creation of a single network by October 20" #Il20
3) #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.
@JohnSimpsonNews The levels of professional ignorance you & MSM maintain has led to the deaths of millions. Rather than push your own comfort zone by asking questions in a suit, you choose to wear a burka to tell us how bad the Taliban is, they are barbaric but not as much as our government.
@JohnSimpsonNews US PNAC War Policy being executed. There are no coincidences only death.
General Wes Clark speaking about US military plan in 2001, stated in an interview 2007.
"USA will attack Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran.
U.S. State Dept. @statedeptspox:
The U.S. stands with the Iranian people.
We call on all nations to support the Iranian people by not investing in Iran that supports the regime.
U.S. Special Envoy for Iran Brian Hook: #Iran's regime must be pressed for its human rights violations.
The so-called moderates represent a regime that continues to repress Iranians on a daily basis.
Iran's regime must stop persecuting civil society.
U.S. Special Envoy for Iran Brian Hook: #Iran's regime targets minorities.
Khomeini promised more freedom, more prosperity & an end to corruption.
This regime has failed for 39 years. The Iranian people know that.
We will continue to stand with the Iranian people.
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."
NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi on the Roadmap to Freedom, 2018 Iran Uprising Summit, September 22: 1- “I want to stress the path we have chosen and the horizon ahead of us as we strive to reach the Iranian people's grand destination.” #Iran#FreeIranSummit#Alternative
2- “We seek popular sovereignty. We are fighting for the establishment of a republic based on the vote of the people. We consider the people's free vote to be the sole criterion of legitimacy for national officials.” #Iran#FreeIranSummit#Alternative
3-“We stress human rights in accordance w/ the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, & in accordance w/ conventions adopted by the United Nations. The mullahs' sharia edicts, which make up the legal precedent of the regime's punitive laws, will have no place in tomorrow's Iran.”
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
"The S-300PMU2 Favorit can launch six missiles at once and engage 12 targets simultaneously, both at high and low altitude."
"The missile interceptors (effectors) used by the S-300 PMU2 outmaneuver any modern fighter, including F-16, F-15, F-18 and F-22, these missiles can also effectively hit cruise missiles at ranges of 40-70km."
Listen 👂 please: #Israel can't renounce on violating #Lebanon and #Syria airspace. #Russia can't just wipe away the murder of 15 servicemen and its own reputation as a superpower @PutinRF_Eng experience similar situation with #Turkey in 2015
