From May 2018:

(Note that the Kurd’s role in all this has been greatly diminished. By trump / Putin.)


More confirmation of what people who’ve been paying attention have known since we found out how this smirking creep gulled the neoCons on behalf of Iran.


Paid by funds stolen from the people of Iraq.


Are you implying that the 2003 invasion of Iraq was a jingoistic idiotic short-term reflex that had no viable long term goal or planning behind it?

I’m shocked! Shocked!

Well, not that shocked…


Great job the Cheney/Bush administration did liberating Iraq – the disaster that will never end. (Additional credit to their successors for maintaining the disaster because fear of being perceived as militarily week as well as acknowledging any capacity for error are politically no go’s.


The US government(or some within the government) have been chomping at the bit to start a war with Iran, which makes me curious about the timing/origin of this.
