Is Trump really an anti-interventionist? From "bombing the hell" out of civilians, to ramping-up brutal sanctions, to becoming Arms Salesman-In-Chief––our new @EmpireFiles series shows how he's been a gift to the war machine.
The Iraq War woke me up to the horrific extent of US atrocities & cover-up by its corporate media machine. I remain stunned after so much carnage & destruction, the architects & agitators are heralded as intellectuals instead of shamed as war criminals. Empire rots from within
"A year in Iraq taught me that we have far more in common with the people we’re sent to occupy than the politicians, officers, CEOs and media moguls who send us to war. They tell us our enemies are 1000s of miles away, but our real enemies are right here at home." @MikePrysner
Bolton & US puppet Guaido urged Venezuela’s military to defect w/ promises of amnesty. After they were no longer useful, they’ve been kicked out, given maps w/ nowhere to go

A group of former #Venezuelan soldiers who abandoned their posts and deserted to #Colombia are now being evicted from their shelter, as they make calls for #Guai to fulfill the many promises he made to them.
