The Old City of #Mosul, Iraq, earlier today. Around 100,000 Christians fled the city when ISIS invaded in 2014. Since its liberation last July, 10 Christian families have returned.
The western press has tried so very hard to pretend that Mosul was 'liberated.' Out of all Christians that fled, only ten families have returned. We're approximately six weeks shy of a year into 'liberation' of Mosul but it doesn't look like liberation to those who live there.
Hayder al-Abadi was a great leader, the western press said, a shoo-in for re-election. But the Iraqi people, they felt differently which is why Moqtada al-Sadr's bloc won the election this month. Strange isn't it, how the press was so wrong and how they were wrong in just the way the US government was. It's almost as though the independent western press isn't every independent at all.
For more liars, let's note this.
Is that what honor looks like?
Let's pretend for a moment that is what honor looks like.
Then, by all means, pass it on the 2016 Democratic Party presidential nominee because Hillary Clinton needs to grab some of that honor. She's never been as forthcoming on Iraq herself -- despite supporting it the same way John McCain did.
Now let's stop pretending that this honor. If he made the declaration before knifing himself to death, we might consider it some sort of samurai honor.
But this isn't bushido, is it?
No, it's a deathbed confession.
Criminals make deathbed confessions.
There's nothing honorable about a criminal.
John McCain believes in God and believes he's about to die. Therefore, as he is on the verge of passing, he's offering something, anything, that he hopes will carry him safely through an afterlife.
This isn't anything honorable.
Honorable would have been using his power all these years to stop the Iraq War. But he didn't.
Now when he's dying and useless, he tosses out a few words.
Those words are meaningless.
No dead Iraqi, no dead American, is coming back because of those feeble words.
He is a criminal making a deathbed confession.
Only a whore for the Democratic Party could see that as honorable.
The blood of the innocent will not wash off of him. He made a decision to support the war, he dies but the war goes on.
He's a criminal and, if his beliefs in God are accurate, he will most likely face a punishment he so well deserves. His last minute bargaining with God will be seen as a plea arrangement that heaven overturned.
Bye-bye, John McCain, won't miss you a bit.
