A Costco employee helped me at the gas pump today when my card wasn’t working. He asked me where my family was from. I told him Iraq.
“I knew it,” he responded in Arabic. “It’s in our blood. You can just tell.”
We wished each other luck. Warmest smile I’ve seen in weeks. https://t.co/HjWP4RqwY5

@patricklilley @DerbyChrisW Dear PL, I've no idea CW re PFI, Iraq, but like to see evidence of CW 'a-s apologist'. Have you read Jewish Lab below? Thoughts re why so much outrage at CW (alleged) a-s compared 'outrage' at obvious racist threats against @HackneyAbbott ? https://t.co/WKx9xyOqY5peter cave @flossopher • 20 Jan 00:27 GMT
@JoeBiden PS @JoeBiden...almost forgot...which one of the wars you've supported was your favourite? I recall you were keen on Iraq, but you were VP when Obama was bombing Libya & sending al-Qaeda into Syria, so maybe it's one of those?
@Janiete @Legalbeagle1978 @PolProfSteve Empty platitudes are all you have to offer. Difficult choices? Like bombing Iraq and bailing out the City of London with £1.2 trillion but then peddling austerity for the poor. Obviously, you grapple with real issues, that's very clear!CanDoJon @nojondo • 20 Jan 00:09 GMT

@Garou_Hidalgo From what you said, if China is strong enough to project power into Uyghurstan than they should possess it. By that same logic, if America is strong enough to hold Iraq or Afghanistan than they should have it regardless of their location in relation to the contested areas.ParliamentarianAlt @Ebonis889 • 19 Jan 22:58 GMT

“That tax-exempt neoconservative outfits like the FDD continue to exercise outsized influence on US foreign policy is a scandal and one which, in light of the events of the past week, deserves a congressional inquiry.”

My guess is that his revolution never happened so to soothe his despair being pro-establishment as that way he could feel like a winner.

Washington's goal in Iraq is to incite a civil war and ultimately partition the country and eradicate its resistance forces.

Iran is a weak middle power that killed more of its own people by accident two weeks ago.
