No one from #Syria invited the US to invade their country, created & funded ISIS, Al-Qaeda, "moderate rebels", White Helmets, kill thousands of civilians, destroy infrastructures & provoke refugee crisis.
@RandPaul @POTUS @UsCongressnews1 @EU_Commission @AmbJohnBolton @SecPompeo
Are you Syrian? No! @SecPompeo you have no right to decide about Syria's politics. #Syria has a legitimate government whether you like it or not. Who decides on Syria's alliances is President Assad. 🇮🇷will only come out of 🇸🇾when the two presidents decide.

Potentially supplying them to detonate #bombs against U.S. forces in Iraq & #Afghanistan
It credited so-called economic intelligence with the find.
The solution wasn't a death blow delivered by the #military but rather a new regulation on the export of certain #technologies via the #CommerceDepartment which the #NSA said would end up “saving #American & coalition lives.”

Time did the right thing today by awarding #TimePersonOfTheYear to journalists. It inspired me to look back at how @UN_SPExperts have emphasized the epidemic of attacks on journalists/ism just this year
following are just some of the attacks on journalists we highlighted. a core fact is that most attacks, and most abuses of human rights, are not held accountable.
the @Time 'award' takes place against the backdrop of @realDonaldTrump's attacks on truth

Just left Afghanistan with a bipartisan Congressional delegation I led and wanted to share a few raw and unedited thoughts on my first trip back since being deployed there in 2014-15.
While much has changed, too much remains the same in Afghanistan. It’s clear to me that the security situation has deteriorated even further since I was deployed there, and the Taliban has taken footholds in new parts of country since failed Obama strategy of drawdown 5 yrs ago.
After visiting troops and leaders on the ground in Afghanistan, I'm convinced our efforts there are as important as ever, as the level of threats has evolved in recent months, but after 17 years the American people are growing even more weary.

In a week where the North East got yet another military commander, we got a better look at overburdened infrastructure.

Elsewhere, as MTN gears up to enter the banks’ turf, concern over Nigeria's food import practices conjures a picture of a recently painted but creaking house.
The @MTNGroup's announcement is a positive for #Nigeria's economy as it substantiates previous comments by MTN that it has no plans to exit Nigeria despite its spat with @cenbank over alleged illegal fund repatriation.
The announcement ties into @MTNGroup’s strategy to become the biggest provider of mobile financial services in #Africa.

The telecoms-led drive to provide mobile money services will introduce a new interesting chapter in #Nigeria’s financial services sector.

America's war in #Afghanistan began on July 3, 1979. Yes, six months before the #Soviets invaded and long before Operation Enduring Freedom. That's four decades of winning, losing and not giving a damn when the Taliban rolled in. counterpunch.org/1998/01/15/how…
the talibs or #Taliban owe their origins to Shah Waliullah Dehlawi, who translated the Koran into Persian and the Deobandi Dar al-Ulum in Deoband in the Uttar Pradesh province of India opendemocracy.net/sayed-hassan-a…

No one will say this, but on #911Anniversary, #NeverForget that we are still in two wars in #Afghanistan and #Iraq that were begun because of that horrific attack on our country.

These are the longest wars in US history.

2M Americans have been wounded. Thousands have died.
1/
The sacrifices made by the same men and women, over and over, the same members of our volunteer army, have continued through three presidencies.

We never talk about it.

Not even on #911Day.

#NeverForget these men and women are trapped in unending war because of 9/11.

#NeverForget on this #911Anniversary that the folks in Washington do not care about our military or their families.

They have refused care for the men and women fighting these endless 9/11 wars 17 years later. Thousands of vets are homeless.

No one who lived through the Bush2 admin, from the stolen 2000 election to the torture, war crimes, two wars we are STILL in, millions of maimed Americans, brutal attacks on women & #LGBT "misses" Bush.Stop saying this for cheap clicks just because you escaped being hurt by Bush.
Pretending the Bush/Cheney years were benign when literally 2 MILLION Americans have been wounded/maimed by the wars in #Afghanistan & #Iraq is #GOP disinformation.

Also, Bush began the #WarOnWomen.
Bush helped stack the #SCOTUS with far right judges. Bush attacked #LGBT folks.
"Trump makes me miss Bush" is a statement of extreme privilege. It means you weren't hurt by Bush's domestic policies that made some of us feel we might have to flee our own country.These glib takes dismiss damage done by #GOP prior to Trump and how GWB opened the door for Trump.
