Day 172 and the slog continues

The Mosul Slog.

It reached day 172 today.

And still it continues.


If murdering civilians qualifies, it's had progress.

This is Hawraa. She was injured by American airstrikes in that killed most of her family.

And the civilians who don't die from bombs, die from bullets.

But the US government keeps on supporting death merchants and the American people go along with it.

So Iraq continues to suffer.

Violence continued today, north of Baghdad, 1 civilian was shot dead and a Baghdad roadside bombing left one person dead.  And an Abu Ghraib roadside bombing left four people injured while an explosion in Ramadi left 1 person dead and two more injured.

Thousands turned out in Basra to protest the efforts to privatize electricity -- remember, the destruction of Iraq was about opening markets.

And war on Syria is all the rage with very few bothering to speak out.

    It's very strange that there are so many liberals for whom Trump was the new Hitler only up until the moment he actually started killing.

    The Obama regime was a Potemkin village but Trump is Potemkin.

    Overnight Trump became a respected "leader" of the "free" & "civilized" world. All it took was bombing an Arab country.

    🇺🇸 media reporting about Syria; We apologise 4 lying abt Qaddafi/ Sadaam but believe us, Bashar al-Assad is the most dangerous creature.
