That ongoing war

A father carries his child, while the young boy carries his prosthetic legs. For thousands in , war has marred their lives forever.

That really says it all, doesn't it?

In four months, it will be the 15th anniversary of the ongoing Iraq War.

The illegal war created a land of orphans and widows.

And it still it drags on.

Barack Obama?

He ran promising to end the Iraq War.

In 2008, Samantha Power had to step down from his campaign.

Not because she called Hillary Clinton "a monster" but because she told the BBC that Barack's "promise" to end the Iraq War wasn't for real (see the March 7, 2008 snapshot -- yes, we covered it real time).

Strange, wasn't it, how the US press ignored that.

Here was a candidate running on his "promise" to end the Iraq War and there's his foreign policy advisor telling the BBC that the "promise" isn't a promise.

Where were the headlines in the US?

No where to be found.  Just distractions.

They didn't care.

And even when he left office, they didn't care.

  1. Also worth noting that Obama inherited 180K US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. That was down to around 15K when he left office.

Look, it's trashy Ben Rhodes.  He's bragging that Barack left office with 15K troops in Iraq and Afghanistan -- because Ben's full of crap.

He prided himself on lying to the American people and tricking them.

The Iraqi people should never forgive him. 

The idea underlying #NetNeutrality is a smiple one: the Internet should be free & open (Senator Murray)

Some Tweets from Senator Patty Murray:

  • The GOP tax plan squeezes middle class families while fattening the pockets of wealthy Americans, plain & simple.
  • Critical affordable housing programs that help thousands of WA would be eliminated under the GOP’s tax plan
  • President Trump and want Internet service providers to be able to block, slow down, or charge people for access to websites. We have to fight back.
  • When your tax plan makes it harder to build affordable housing, it’s difficult to see how it helps working people.
  • Republicans' last ditch effort to pay for tax cuts for billionaires & corporations by spiking patients' premiums and cutting millions of people off of coverage is appalling.
  • Call it a con, a scam, or even a gimmick—just don’t call the GOP tax plan a tax cut for middle class families.
  • is critical to ensuring the internet remains a place where people can come together, make their voices heard, & make change. We have to fight back.
  • President Trump and his Administration are working to put corporate profits ahead of consumers and end as we know it.
  • I'll keep saying it: Tacking Alexander-Murray onto the partisan Republican tax plan is like trying to put out a fire with penicillin. It will not do anything to help.
  • The idea underlying is a simple one: the Internet should be free & open. I’m going to defend it in every way I can. -PM
