#Yemen:
#Houthis attacked , the largest attack ever since the beginning of the Saudi war on Yemen, with 10 armed drone#SaudiArabia Aramco al-Shaybah oil field and station, with 1 million barrel of oil storage capacity, 10 km south of the border to #AbuDhabi, a message to the #UAE
This is the new #Yemen Rule of Engagement, exposing armed drones capable of hitting targets over 1000 km away from Yemen and in #SaudiArabia land. It is also telling #Abudhabi: we can hit you any time if you don't seek political negotiation in Yemen.

If #Yemen has this kind of armed drones, all #Iran allies have the same in #Lebanon, #Syria, #Iraq and #Palestine.

Iran's enemies are powerful but Iran and its allies are enjoying powerful means to fight back. The US and allies's exclusivity is over.

My review on the #Iraq Stock Exchange for July: The IMF revised its real GDP, non-oil GDP growth rates for the crisis yeas 2014-2017 & post conflict 2018-2021.

iraq-businessnews.com/2019/08/11/mar…

The crisis years were, on the whole, weaker than initially expected.

1/7
While, 2018, the 1st year following the conflict, was the 2nd year of a deep recession with a contraction of -0.6% on the back of the prior year’s -2.5% decline, instead of being a 1st year of an economic recovery, at +2.9%, following a shallower decline of -0.4%.

2/7
On the other hand, the expected recovery in 2019/2020 would be much stronger than est.’d earlier with GDP growing at +4.6%/+5.3% instead of +1.7%/+2.0%.

For non-oil GDP, the sharp decline of 2015 was much steeper at −14.4% than earlier est.’s of −9.6%, while ...

I'm no fan of the secular academical approach to #Islamic militantism. We all know who I'm talking about. There're some aspects to it that make it inherently flawed and inconsistent with the reality of #Islam. I'll comment on two of these flaws, but there are many more.
It enforces the idea of nationalism through the use of the term "foreign fighters". This term is foreign (pun intended) to the Islamic worldview, and is the result of the artificial, post-colonial borders dividing the #Muslim world into European-style nation-states.
In the Islamic worldview, a Muslim is symbolically related through membership of the shared religion to any other member of this socio-religious group we call the "ummah" (the Muslim Community). That's the inside group. Those that do not share the religion are obviously not.

#Breaking: just in - Reports of a military ammunition storage facility that has exploded in #Baghdad in #Iraq, is sending shells and bullets everywhere.
#Update: People claiming that #Israel has carried out a airstrike on the military ammunition storage facility in #Baghdad in #Iraq is wrong.
Damn just watch this clip of the ammunition depot explosion sending bullets and shells every direction, here you hear a bullet or a shell passing just past by people.

10 years ago #DHS sent American law enforcement agencies an intelligence briefing warning of a rising threat of #domestic #RightWing #extremism, including #WhiteSupremacist #terrorism.

and analysts were reassigned to study #Muslim #extremism, according to Daryl Johnson, the career federal intelligence analyst who had led the team, By the next year, Johnson had been forced out of the #DHS altogether..

1. While many foreign observers praised @Rob_Malley's op-ed in @nytimes, anyone who KNOWS Yemen will find it one-sided. The op-ed does a gross disservice to #Yemen despite good intentions.

At times I thought the op-ed was either naive or deliberately misleading. Here's why:
2. @Rob_Malley gives a narrow view of #Yemen's conflict and re-hashes #Houthis' narrative when he limits the conflict as "#KSA vs. Houthi". He is not inaccurate per se but deliberately selective, ignoring Houthis' overthrow of UN-backed government as a root cause of conflict.
3. For a Conflict group to overlook the root cause of the conflict is to ignore the ABC of policy analysis. #Houthis wanted a monopoly of power in #Yemen and chose violence to do it, committing war crimes during the five past years. Mr.Malley doesn't show opposition against them.

THE USA: KILLER COUNTRY

The vast majority of North Americans are fine people if sometimes a little insular, uninformed & propagandized by their politicians & mass media. However a significant number have violent tendencies which far too often lead to mass murder.
THE USA: KILLER COUNTRY

This week has seen shocking events occur in the United States. Events which have had all too similar dark echoes in the recent past. Shooters killing people at random, including school children are rarely heard of outside of the USA. Why is that?
THE USA: KILLER COUNTRY

What is there within the everyday culture of the United States that engenders acts of random violence, an intolerant aggressive instinct, an ultra-competitive attitude, delusional thought processes & a willingness to act out hatred?

Are you a #Socialist do you have an inquisitive mind? Do you question the government and media narratives? Have you been ridiculed for questioning the #Douma chemical attack? Have you been called a #PutinPuppet for questioning the #Skripal incident? Did you believe #Iraq had WMDs
If, you question these events, support the rights of #Palestinians then you have probably been called #Antisemitic
Should you question the official narrative of 9/11 you have probably been called a conspiracist theorist.
It is hardly surprising therefore that a meeting that took place on July 24, 2019 at which the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District said the Pledge of Allegiance went unreported.

#Hypocrites #DoubleStandards #Liars #Warlords #USRealTerrorists
Wrong US policies in the Middle East. Sanctions against Iran. Sanctions used by the USA as a war weapon🤨👇🏼

Check out “Before & After” #USA Meddling: From #Iraq to #Afghanistan #Libya & #Syria. Missions Accomplished? Numbers & Facts. - - - “Nearly 4,000 Afghan civilians killed or wounded in first half of 2019, UN says” sabahdai.ly/1dh6z9
...And then define that “Mission”. Interestingly, 3 out of 4, targeted the “Only” Secular nation’s in the #MiddleEast: #Iraq #Libya #Syria & Brought to them #Extremism. Now compare these to #USA chummy allies: #SaudiArabia #Kuwait #UAE.
How can you let them tell you “liberation” when in action it is supporting, spreading & sustaining: #Wahhabism #Sharia #Extremism #Terrorism (aka #alQaeda #ISIS)? How can anyone with half a gram of brain swallow and allow these atrocities in their name & tax-money?!

Big news from the latest @UN report on #ISIS/#alQaida was ISIS' rebuild strategy and that much of it is being directed by Abu Bakr al-#Baghdadi out of Iraq

But there are a number of other interesting observations in the report...
On #alQaida, the @UN intelligence suggests the group although the health of AQ leader Ayman al-Zawahiri & AQ's succession plan "are in doubt"
The @UN report also concludes #alQaida-aligned groups "are stronger than their #ISIL [#ISIS] counterparts in #Idlib, #Syria|n Arab Republic, #Yemen, #Somalia and much of West #Africa"

TRUMP 2020?

Let us make one thing crystal clear right at the start:

Trump is a murderer.

At least seven families in Syria were reduced to abject misery due to their menfolk being taken from them by Trump in a precipitate decision that was later seen to be based upon lies.
TRUMP 2020?

Trump is directly responsible for the deaths of at least seven Syrian servicemen. They were murdered by the US military as personally directed by Donald J. Trump. The USA will of course suffer generations of payback for other lies told & thousands killed.

#Trump2020
TRUMP 2020?

The illegal attack upon #Iraq resulted in the deaths of 100s of 1000s. These were murdered by the highest officials in the USA at the time namely George W. Bush & Dick Cheney among others.

All murdered due to lies they told & professed to believe.

It’s been 5 yrs since the Yazidi community was attacked by ISIS
From today until Aug.3rd, we will commemorate the attack with a campaign in social media where the #EzidiTteam, with the support from our friends around the world,will share&highlight the Yazidi plight
ISIS terrorists attacked the Yazidi community in Iraq, killing and abducting thousands and forcing tens of thousands more into flight from their homeland, #Sinjar. The women and children who kidnapped were sold and sexually abused and raped.
#YazidiGenocide
@BrendaStoter @ma_al_k @Muradsalim1 @mumtazibrahm @KaffirC1_1 @Free_Yezidi @avinnaso @Yazidi_girl @Sagvansaleem @ky_dalal Five years later, the ISIS terror in Iraq has still left deep scars on the Yazidi community. Many of the women and girls, who escaped the captivity of the ISIS, are struggling to deal with the psychological aftermath of what a @UN commission has deemed genocide.

NEOCON TARGET: VENEZUELA

Venezuela is the latest act of geopolitical vandalism by the USA. Post 9/11 hawks have ruled in Washington. Those favoring diplomatic means as effective in bringing the world together in peace were marginalized.

Neocons became preeminent & all-powerful.
NEOCON TARGET: VENEZUELA

Neoconservatives needed a catastrophic event to win power. They achieved this in the fear-driven aftermath of 9/11 where those with the most forceful voices were dominant.

But the Neocons didn't only want to attack terror, they wanted global hegemony.
NEOCON TARGET: VENEZUELA

Neocons are blunt & hardly hide their intentions. They sneer at nuance, diplomacy & compromise. They are the modern day equivalent of Nazis & see no need to obey any international law.

In their view the interests of the USA are of exclusive importance.
