ecco il tipico tweet pieno di menzogne idiote, scritto senza aver nessuna conoscenza degli argomenti trattati e cavalcando un odio cieco e ignorante.

1) "Anche Prodi vuole dialogo con i talebani":

Sì. Esattamente come #Trump,

Perché, volente o nolente, costoro sono i nuovi governanti dell'#Afghanishtan, come da accordi firmati con gli #USA (che li finanzieranno).

Quindi è importante dialogarci per

Perché, come noto, con la guerra non ci si riesce.
La guerra (salvo pochi casi di liberazione) non ha mai portato nulla di buono.

Smoke & mirrors -- #Biden is clearly determined to defend the policy of withdrawal, but that's not the core reason for today's anger.

The debacle was *how* that withdrawal was conducted. It's just not enough to shoulder-off the blame to #Afghanistan. Image
"The #Taliban doesn't even have an airforce," #Biden says.

- Well, they certainly do now, Mr President. Image
If I'm not mistaken, #Biden hasn't yet mentioned the appalling suffering, panic & terror being felt by so many across #Afghanistan -- it's all about defending the withdrawal & blaming the disaster on #Afghans.

Just a bafflingly tone deaf message, considering global attention. Image

The former Chinese PLA general who has acquired 200 sq miles of Texas land has significantly expanded the existing runway at their operations Ctr in order to land large commercial airliners.He flys in with multiple Chinese guests (sometimes Jack Ma) each month. #China #Texas
It’s starting to resemble the island runways in the South China Sea. It’s hard to believe this infiltration of the Texas power grid and US Air Force training space can happen today given China’s position as a “strategic competitor” at best and a full-fledged “Enemy” at worst.
CFIUS must move to cancel the purchases of these strategically important lands in South Texas. #CFIUS #Pompeo @SecPompeo @JohnCornyn @SenTedCruz

I just finished a call with a journo wanting to ask about #Pompeo's moves to recognize colonial settlements as part of Israel, to decry #BDS, and to collapse anti #Zionism and anti Semitism. A few thoughts. #THREAD
Re #BDS: It is not the core of progressive organizing or the heart of a movement, it is one of the few tactics left available to Palestinians and their allies as other tactics have been steadily and systematically maligned.
The US and Israel have always rejected #ArmedResistance, enshrined in Additional Protocol I (1977), as terroristic regardless of actual targets, namely military, and the PLO surrendered that right in 1993 in exchange for entering into the trap of the #PeaceProcess.

Last week, I started this👇 thread on how #Trump appears to be gearing-up for military action against Iran

Today, @nytimes revealed "Trump asked senior advisers in a meeting on Thursday whether he had options to take action against #Iran’s main nuclear site in the coming weeks.”
Any military orders by #Trump are transmitted through the secretary of defense

By replacing Esner with Miller & giving top Pentagon & Intelligence jobs his allies, Trump appears to have created a chain-of-command that would support military action in Iran
Trump is also increasing sanctions on #Iran pledging “a steady stream of sanctions through the end of the administration”

Sanctions are not dangerous in themselves, but the enforcement of sanctions - checking cargo etc - will undoubtedly ramp-up tensions.

Pompeo: "We, the Americans, look to #Greece as a true pillar for stability and prosperity in the Eastern Mediterranean, and we are incredibly proud to support its leadership. Our security cooperation has grown tremendously – indeed, by leaps and bounds"…
This is an amazing press conference:

#Greece's Prime Minister only mentions Turkey and how amazing it is that the US military support of Greece against Turkey is growing

#Pompeo focuses solely on Russia and China, and other things the PM doesn't mention.

Ya les mando a la #UIF para que #SantiagoNieto les congelará las cuentas de los agricultores y de quienes están defendiendo a #Chihuahua

“Something will happen with #Venezuela. That’s all I can tell you,” #Trump said, before not-so-cryptically adding that Washington would be “very much involved.”

The US government is using cash stolen from the Venezuelan government as part of a hearts and minds campaign on behalf of opposition figure Juan Guaidó.

#Pompeo ought to consult his attorney before speaking at the #RepublicanNationalConvention

@POGOBlog obtained internal @StateDept memorandum spelling out #HatchAct and dept policies.

Look how crystal clear the legal memo is.👇

@schwellenbach's analysis:…
2. Multiple lawyers like this👇signing off on Pompeo's speaking at RNC is not an indication of lawfulness. It's more an indication he recognizes the need to get legal cover.

Question to ask: Which lawyers actually signed off? The political appointees?
3. Link to the full Department of State legal memo of December 3, 2019, which states in bold print for emphasis:

"Senate confirmed Presidential appointees may not even attend a political party convention or convention-related event"…

Can lying #Pompeo represent the American people? Of course NOT. Image
In the #US, the salaries of CEOs are on average 400 times that of their mid-management employees. 1% control $30 trillion of assets. The 3 richest have more money than the poor 160 million. The wealth of black households is 1/10 that of whites.
#Pompeo only serves the rich instead of the majority. I hope he could show more care about his own PEOPLE. Save them from the pandemic and let them breathe freely!

In the realm of hyper-politicizing the State Dep't, #Pompeo has apparently handed over thousands of pages of documents to Senate REPUBLICANS probing Biden-Burisma.

But refuses even to provide duplicates to House Foreign Foreign Affairs Committee.

Next move: A Subpoena
2 "Just days after the conclusion of President Trump’s impeachment trial, in which Secretary Pompeo refused to comply with a duly authorized subpoena for documents and attempted to block testimony of key witnesses, the State Department producing documents to Senate Republicans…"
3. Many reasons this is even more of an affront to our system of government:

Reason 1: House Foreign Affairs Committee has DIRECT oversight of State Dept. Yet Pompeo appears to have forced HFAC to point of issuing a subpoena. Meanwhile he's voluntarily sharing with Senate GOP.

BREAKING: Multinational team uses 3 different methods to determine where #SARSCoV2 came from: each leads to horseshoe bats found widely in Asia. The virus now causing a human #pandemic has been in bats "for decades," only now reaching people.
Big implications from this peer-reviewed paper.
First, #COVID19 is not caused by a "China virus" that was "made in a Chinese lab," as some in the #Trump admin have claimed.
2nd, it may have jumped directly from a bat to a person, without intermediary animals.
MORE Image
3rd, The 2003 SARS has also been connected to Asian horseshoe bats, and these mammals may carry many types of #coronaviruses.
4th, this shows "how difficult it will be to identify viruses with potential to cause major human outbreaks before they emerge." Image

#Pompeo 🇩🇰 meeting readout (Arctic inc): Danish Min Kofod outlines pragmatic approach to 'deterrence' & dialogue wrt 🇷🇺 "we will ensure that we have the proper capabilities in the region, & we want to maintain close cooperation based on Arctic Council & the Ilulissat Declaration"
Min Kofad did not frame #Arctic concerns related to China, which was interesting. both "signed new MoUs...that cover a wide range of areas, like growing Greenland’s mining and energy sectors through transparent investment, helping manage land and fisheries" ....transparency...
press q's: agenda to "round up support among allies against China...all due respect, why on Earth...Denmark, of all places?" In the Arctic, China has fancied themselves as a near-Arctic nation. We have a responsibility to get that right for...our own sovereign security issues"

(Thread) It’s shocking to see the actions of Secretary of State Mike #Pompeo and the immaturity of #US Government officials. Now they are ordering #China to close its consulate in Houston for protection of American interests? If this goes through, #Beijing will retaliate
and order the closing of the US consulate in #HongKong and further weaken US-China relations. I'm worried about war between #US & #China.

This is very different than the threats of a war with the Soviet Union during the #ColdWar era. Why?
Because at that time the Soviet’s economy was crumbling. China has a strong military and even stronger economy. They also remember 150 yrs of suffering through the Opium Wars. #China will not be intimidated by #America.

#Pompeo's anti-China rhetoric is more and more like that of #Hitler against the Jews in WWII.

Germany at that time was also mired in deep economic difficulties and Hitler was also trying to find a way out. The Jews were an easy target.

#Democracy can't prevent hate & insanity.
The CPC successfully put the pandemic under control in China and provided aid to 120 countries. China's death toll is proportionally 1/120 of that of America. The WH is the real threat to the American people and to the world.

On 21 May the #Trump administration announced the U.S. #withdrawal from the #OpenSkiesTreaty. It will take effect in November. Tomorrow the 34 member states hold a virtual state conference to decide the future of the treaty. Can they save it? Bottom line: Yes, they can! 1/15
2/15 The US could theoretically still reverse its position and remain in the treaty. In May #Pompeo stated that “if #Russia returns to full compliance” the US may reconsider. BUT: This won’t happen! The US has already stopped implementing the treaty. No more US flights this year.
3/15 There are three major issues: First, what about the other member states? Will they remain or follow the U.S. by withdrawing? Second, how will Russia/Belarus react? Third, how does the U.S. withdrawal affect the treaty on a technical level? Let’s look at them one at a time.

Just in: #Pompeo called Taliban deputy leader Mullah Baradar, “made clear the expectation for the Taliban to live up to their commitments, which include not attacking Americans.”

NYT reporting US intel intercepted wired transfers from Russia to Taliban: Image
Trump administration has opened new high level channels with Taliban

• Trump spoke to Mullah Baradar in March
• Envoy Khalilzad routinely meets them in Qatar (including this week)
• Agreement with Taliban on Feb 29 : 2 days after Russia bounties briefing to Trump per NYT
Not called, video conferenced. Essentially US Secretary of State zoomed deputy leader of a militant organization in Afghanistan that ran an alliance with Al Qaeda and is allegedly receiving Russian bounties to kill US troops
