More Dying for Nothing in Iraq

Two more U.S. soldiers have been killed in Iraq. Yes, that Iraq — the Iraq that never attacked the United States or even threatened to do so — the Iraq that the U.S. government invaded and has occupied for umpteen years under the rubric of “Operation Iraqi Freedom.”

What did those two soldiers die for? They died for the same thing that 58,000 U.S. soldiers died for in Vietnam — nothing.

US General Claims Iran Threat ‘Remains Very High’

Centcom commander Gen. Frank McKenzie praised the many US attacks in Iraq as successful, while saying the threat posed by Iran “remains very high,” suggesting the attacks were sending them a signal.

Iran summons Swiss envoy to protest Trump’s 'baseless' Iraq remarks

Iran has summoned the Swiss envoy, whose country represents US interests in Tehran, to protest US President Donald Trump’s accusations blaming Iran for an attack on occupying American forces in Iraq.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said Saturday that Markus Leitner was summoned to the Iranian Foreign Ministry a day earlier to be informed of Iran’s “severe protest” over the remarks.

Mousavi said Washington’s destructive policies and its role in current tensions were discussed during the meeting where Iran warned the Americans against any “unwise” actions.

“Trump can’t deny his responsibility by making such baseless and dangerous accusations” against Iran, he added.

Why Iraqis Hate the U.S. Troops Who Occupy Their Country

We invaded their land. We did it on the basis of Bush’s lies that Bush had conclusive evidence that Saddam was six months from a nuclear weapon and had been behind the 9/11 attacks. He blatantly misrepresented the evidence that he did have. And instead of Bush, or any of his successors, apologizing for this — the destruction of Iraq (on the basis of lies) — there has been continued military occupation of Iraq, and forcing of its Government to do what our lying Government demands, such as privatizing the oil and paying international oil companies to exploit and market it — their oil.

WE ARE ALL ASSANGE: A PHOTOMOSAIC OF INTERNET PRESENCES

So I made a photo mosaic of faces of people on the Internet, the censored, the demonized, the curious: podcasters and YouTube niche celebs and profiles from everywhere, from Twitter and Instagram and Myspace and Reddit and Pinterest and Snapchat and Tumblr and LiveJournal and even Facebook; faces of activists from BDS and BLM and OWS; faces of journalists of all kinds, anonymous and pseudonymous and eponymous, citizens all; whistleblowers and more whistleblowers and more whistleblowers; magazine publishers and rock stars and politicians and webmasters and authors and artists and poets and revolutionaries.

All of you who think for ourselves. Thousands and thousands of faces.

I made a mosaic. You should see it. I made it for you.

It is seven and three quarter feet tall, but fully zoomable on your device’s screen. Check it out. I call it “We Are All Assange.”

In meeting with Orthodox, Trump reveals Israel advisers: His Jewish lawyers

NEW YORK (JTA) – There were a few things Donald Trump made clear when he met Thursday with a select group of Jewish reporters, almost all of them Orthodox, at his corporate offices in Manhattan.

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly was the one who initiated Wednesday’s one-on-one powwow with Trump to mend fences, not him. He’s a great friend of Israel. He has many Orthodox Jewish friends, including his chief lawyer, Jason D. Greenblatt. And he considers himself a very loyal boss.

But in a 20-minute question-and-answer session that touched on religious liberty in the workplace, U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and federal education tax credits, Trump offered scant details.

On some substantive policy questions, the Republican front-runner for president didn’t answer at all, instead delegating the question to Greenblatt, a real estate attorney from Teaneck, New Jersey — one of two people he said he’d appoint as his White House Israel policy advisers.
