Nouri is a thug, Nouri is a killer

It's Friday in Iraq.  Last week, the ongoing protests hit the one year mark.

Nouri responded by (again) declaring them terrorists and announcing his planned assault on Ramadi's sit-in.

Did that send the protesters into hiding?


That's Samarra.

And that's 16-year-old  Ahmed Bahaa killed in Anbar today by Nouri's forces.

That's what Barack's backing.  That's what the White House is giving arms for.

The murder of Iraqis whose only crime is exercising their legal rights.

Here's Ramadi's sit-in today.

Iraqi Spring MC reports helicopters are flying over the Ramadi square.

Nouri is a thug, Nouri is a killer.

The press enables him.

On that, a few e-mails ask about something they expected to read in the 24th snapshot.

That was Christmas Eve.  I was being nice for the holiday.  Now that the man of at least two names is hitting the press circuit again, we're more than happy to dissect his nonsense and that of his outlet.  Wait for today's snapshot.

The Brussells Tribunal noted Wednesday:

On the 20th of March 2008, the BRussells Tribunal published “95 Messages to the People”, commemorating 5 years of war against Iraq.
On the occasion of Christmas, a feast to celebrate peace, we want to share a few of these timeless contributions, because they are still valid today .
Some honorary members of the BRussells Tribunal have sadly left us around the time of Christmas:  Harold Pinter in December 2008, Dennis Brutus in December 2009, Howard Zinn in January 2010. They fought relentlessly against this unjust war that has decimated the Iraqi people and destroyed its society.  
We must continue their work to let justice prevail. One such unique opportunity is the Iraq CommissionTowards Accountability and Justice for Iraq: April 16-17, 2014” during the 18th Congress of the International Association of Democratic Lawyers (IADL), a non-governmental organization having consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), in Brussels (Belgium) from 15th to 19th April 2014
The BRussells Tribunal intends to bring together international legal experts and activists who will explore the possibilities for legal action against those responsible for the war of aggression against Iraq. Participants will also share their experiences about past and present legal procedures, and civil society initiatives. We will discuss the different forms of possible legal and civil actions.
