"Why are you angry Sarah?"

I'll show you shall I?


@VP admitting wars have been over oil,
Soon they'll be over water...

Saying it so casually..
Like America didn't destroy half the world with their genocidal oil wars,

The "news" are silent
#Iraq #Libya #Syria #China
No comment needed.
BBC casually admitting that they've been lying for 10 yrs

We are a monetarily sovereign nation & cannot go bankrupt.

-Which was never an economic need, it was/is an ideology
Has killed at least 150,000 souls in this very rich country,
As they lied for the government

Great to team up with my esteemed @CarnegieEndow colleague @andrewsweiss for this de-mythologizing of Russian military, political & economic influence in the Middle East, covering #Syria, #Israel, #Lebanon, #Algeria, #Libya, & #Egypt. 1/…
Moscow's activism in the MENA is certainly formidable: it has adroitly deployed military forces in Syria & Libya & engaged with actors that are off limits to the West. A flat decision-making structure allow Russia to operate nimbly & without concern for domestic blowback. 2/
Russia’s opportunistic interventions across the region have adeptly exploited U.S. missteps, filled vacuums, and pandered to the insecurities & ambitions of local actors--all while trying to enrich itself along the way. 3/

Self-Righteous SADISTIC ORIENTALIST IMPERIALISTS propagandists have been plastering all manner of fake outrage & concerns for the people of Afghanistan. One can't help but wonder where was such outrage & concern for the last 20 years. Image
Never thought the Daily Hate filth would be shocked to see Muslims being killed or are they just shocked the video got out into the public?

Shocking video shows U.S. troops cheering as airstrike blows up Afghan civilians…

1/The Western media complex is engaging in Information Laundering in #Ethiopia. Information Laundering is the process of legitimizing information garnered from unreliable/biased/shady sources, such as TMH, Crisis Group, SAHAN, WPF(Alex de Waal), @martinplaut and #TPLF sources.
2/There are at least nine major media outlets & ten journalists that are leading this campaign of Information Laundering: @bbc @cnn @ap @reuters
@bloomberg @nytimes @wapo
@guardian @telegraph. For today I will focus on BBC and Vivienne Nunis.
3/Since June 2021, @bbc have produced 15 news articles and opinion pieces re #Ethiopia. Of these, 6 were written by @vivnunis and 2 were written by Alex de Waal.

1/ Amnesty Senior Advisor Admits Lies on Reports
(#EPA, @PressEthio)
2/ Amnesty International Senior Crisis Adviser Donatella Rovera admitted that the organization’s reports related to genocide, mass rape and mercenary in #Africa are largely based on myths aimed to delegitimize targeted governments.
3/ “We Amnesty International and my colleagues had exerted a great time and effort investigating these allegations and we were not found any evidence proving that such things are taking place especially during the intervention in the #Libya crisis.”

Now UN Security Council work censored by @IndiaUNNewYork - Inner City Press last week wrote to the Mission asking for WebEx access to briefing, such as it has from IMF - no answer at all. #TodaysUNisCorrupt… Thread below, all month Image

@ambtstirumurti won't take Inner City Press' questions, has 3 meetings on Syria, and NONE on #Nigeria or #Cameroon, much less sexual abuse cases by UN peacekeepers, which Guterres refuses to answer on Image

A COUP IN #Tunisia 🇹🇳?

No! Many coups!

But when did these happen?


When #police & #justice were hijacked by #ennahda and #BenAli fellows:

->Read or @DeepLcom this:
Police et justice, les talons d’Achille de la jeune démocratie TN…
2. Or maybe when the constitutional court, highest authority and key power balance to president of Republic was not instituted (because of MPs' mainly lack of compromise in an Ennahda led parliament)
The heart of #TNconstitution is 6 years late not 6 days, not weeks not months!

NEW: Just released @UN report warns of "heightened threats emerging" from #ISIS #alQaida affiliated groups worldwide

"This is especially true in parts of West and East #Africa" per the report, based on member state intelligence
In West/East #Africa, affiliates of #ISIS #alQaida "can boast gains in supporters and territory under threat, as well as growing capabilities in fundraising & weapons, for example, in the use of drones" per the @UN report
#ISIS in #Syria "has evolved into an entrenched insurgency, exploiting weaknesses in local security to find safe havens & targeting forces engaged in counter-ISIL operations" per the @UN report

1/4 I feel another special episode of @libyamatterspod coming looking at the perils of a "cut and paste" approach to mediation by @UNSMIL lacking contextual understanding of the situation in #Libya peppered with a good dose of mansplaining on how the international system "works".
2/4 Confusing reopening agreed points and questions outside the #LPDF's mandate with a "general debate" we are now left with 1.5 days to re-agree everything as everything has been put on the table and the opportunity to table more proposals appears to still be open.
3/4 Again, this comes to questions of due process. The deficit created by the lack of terms of reference for the LPDF or a proper decision making mechanism from the first rounds, has created an environment that empowers those seeking a political deal above all else.

1/6 #Libya: We are back in our meetings in the #LPDF. For those interested, I will reflect here on my experiences to the extent I am allowed to do so by the confines of the Code of Conduct.
2/6 Today we heard the suggestions of the Advisory Committee - there is much to discuss in the coming days but one thing that is clear is that we did not learn from our mistakes where it comes to eligibility criteria.
3/6 One criterion is that the candidate "has not been convicted of corruption or violation of #HumanRights or international humanitarian law in a final judgment and in a fair trial".

OMFG how did we miss this? #Libya #KhashoggiKoolAid

Imagine if you have no electric 8-12 hours a day, tifa, et al are given police uniforms along with Al Qaeda & dept of energy moves its HQ to another country (same country that bombed YOU too)

That is what is happening here.

Sergey Soygu, Russian defence minister, has subbed #America like eight times in his speech. FTT, he's right. America has lost the war in #Afghanistan.

"#Africa is of particular concern because our Western partners have not allowed them to stabilise economically."

Is he right? Image
He just reminded us that the Soviet Union supported many liberation movements with #Africa, and has offered a hand of friendship.

P.S I hate it when they (and they're all guilty of this) of talking of Africa as a country.
Another direct sub: "we will sign agreements with our African friends without imposing our ways on you like our Western partners do."

Thread.. Friday night rant
1- Political comments about 4 oil producers: #Iran, #Iraq, #Libya & #Yemen:

End of crises in these countries requires dismantling all militias. That leads to another chaos as unemployment, poverty & crimes rise, while #Europe is flooded with refugees.
2- This explains the push by Europeans to integrate the militias into the army, despite their war crimes against humanity. Also, they do not want to pay to rescue these countries from being failed states. So militias are serving local and foreign interests at once
3- Now add Venezuela into the mix! Who has interest in dismantling the militias? Biden? No.
Without jobs, what will young men and women do? 🤔
It is an old political trick by politicians: if you do not keep them busy, they will be busy with you!

🧵 1/ I felt I had to let few days go out of respect yet once again on sad memorial days like this nobody reached to the bottom of what can truly change. Yes, back on 10th June 1944 Nazi troops massacred 218 innocent civilians at #Distomo. Not the first, not that last act…
2/…of immense brutality. Similar to all gone mad and rogue military forces around the world. Yet the biggest issue is not what Germans did to Greece back then, is what German politicians do to Greece NOW. They refuse to stop selling weapons to Turkey:…
3/ They also refuse to increase their defence spending. Germany, a G7 country is still below the 2% NATO spending cap that Greece which required EU financial aid still meets:
