CRIMINALLY INSANE JOY REID TWEETED THE FOLLOWING:
ONLY TO BE CORRECTED BY SARAH ABDALLAH:
AND THE CRIMINALLY LAZY CHRISTINE PELOSI WHO MAKES IT OFF HER MOTHER'S NAME CONFUSED ST. BARACK THE BIG SISSY WITH THE CHRIST CHILD:
AGAIN, IT'S ST. BARACK THE BIG SISSY -- NOT OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. KNOW THE DIFFERENCE, CHRISTINE, KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.
ALJAZEERA runs with "Turkey sends special forces into northern Iraq," "AP with "Turkey moves troops against Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq" and DEUTSCHE WELLE with "Turkey launches offensive against Kurdish rebels in Iraq."
Is reporting that hard? Or is lying just that easy?
That's the accurate term. As in: Turkey invades Iraq.
If Mexico sent troops into California or Texas today, the US press would be saying, "Mexico Invades US."
Its ten paragraphs into the DW report before you come across this:
The government of Iraq summoned the Turkish ambassador on Tuesday to protest the initial aerial offensive. Baghdad called the airstrikes a violation of its sovereignty and said it broke international law.
AP waits until its tenth paragraph to note Iraqi objection:
Iraq's government however, summoned the Turkish ambassador on Tuesday to protest against the aerial offensive.
AP can't be bothered with noting issues like sovereignty or international law.
From yesterday's snapshot:
The Turkish government calls it Operation Claw-Eagle, the world should be calling it what it is: terrorism. And it continues daily including today. This morning, THE JERUSALEM POST notes:
Turkish aircraft and Iranian artillery targeted the town of Haji Omeran in the Erbil Governorate of Iraq on Tuesday, according to Sky News Arabia.
Haji Omeran is located along the Iran-Iraq border in northeastern Iraq.
The district mayor of Haji Omeran, Farzang Ahmed, told Rudaw that Iranian artillery has targeted Iranian Kurdish opposition groups in the area before, but that Turkish strikes on the area were unheard of.
"We suspect that the two sides are in coordination, because this is the first time that Turkey has bombed this region," said Ahmed to Rudaw. "This region is frequently and every year under Iran's shelling, on the grounds that they are targeting Kurdish opposition parties."
This is terrorism. The US government remains silent. The world remains silent. Day after day, year after year, Turkey violates Iraq's sovereignty and terrorizes people who live in northern Iraq. Hiwa Shilani (KURDISTAN 24) reports:
The Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday announced that it had summoned the ambassador of Turkey in Iraq and handed him a complaint memo condemning the violation of Iraqi sovereignty and its airspace after recent Turkish airstrikes in the Kurdistan Region.
A statement from the foreign ministry announced that Iraq had “summoned” Turkish Ambassador Fatih Yildiz “against the backdrop of the Turkish bombing that affected a number of regions in northern Iraq, causing terror to the population, and spreading panic among them.”
“Ambassador Abdul Karim Hashim met the Turkish ambassador and delivered him a protest note, which included the Iraqi government’s condemnation of violations of the sanctity, sovereignty, and Iraqi airspace.”
The Arab Parliament -- the legislative arm of the Arab League -- on Tuesday denounced Turkey’s recent raids in Iraq, calling on Ankara to respect the sovereignty of its neighbor and put an end to its unilateral military operations there.
Arab Parliament Speaker Meshaal bin Fahim al-Salami said in a statement that “these actions are an infringement on the sovereignty of Iraq, a flagrant violation of the Charter of the United Nations, international law and international norms, and in violation of Security Council resolutions.”
The statement also voiced support for Iraq’s stance against Turkey’s moves.
Iraqi lawmakers also reacted to the latest developments, condemning Ankara’s operations in a statement and calling on the Baghdad government to take action to protect civilians and stop Turkish violations of the country’s sovereignty.
I'm confused here, is the Arab League a non-entity to AP, DW and other outlets?
