BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL AID TABLE
NEPOTISM POSTER CHILD CHELSEA CLINTON WAS OFFENDED BY DONALD TRUMP'S WORED FROM 13 YEARS AGO TODAY.
YES, HER LIFE IS JUST THAT SAD.
SO SHE TWEETED ONLY TO FIND THAT WOMEN ARE OFFENDED TO THIS DAY BY HER DADDY'S HARASSMENT AND RAPE.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, POUTY CHELSEA WHINED, "I'M GOING TO TELL MY MOMMY WHAT MEAN THINGS YOU SAID!!!!"
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Molly Hennessy-Fiske and W.J. Hennigan (LOS ANGELES TIMES) report:
It also appears that the number of civilian casualties has risen in recent months as combat has shifted to densely populated west Mosul and the coalition has undertaken the heaviest bombing since the war began almost three years ago.
[. . .]
Raed Mohammed Hasan, 30, said he lost neighbors and relatives, including his 11-month-old daughter, Rania, in an airstrike in east Mosul on Jan. 21. He and other residents say 11 civilians died in that strike, which occurred during the months-long battle to oust Islamic State from Iraq’s second-largest city. Coalition records show a strike was carried out in Mosul that day, but officials say it is not being investigated for civilian deaths.
The report also contains numerous photos by Marcus Yam.
Day 185 of The Mosul Slog.
It never ends.
And it never ends because solutions are not sought.
Nouri al-Maliki was the mid-wife to the Islamic State.
His actions allowed them to rise.
That's on Bully Boy Bush and the Congress of the United States who all agreed to benchmarks for Iraq, remember that?
Congress was going to cut off support if Iraq did not show progress.
Congress was as full of it as was Bully Boy Bush (Democrats controlled both houses them).
But so was Nouri. He agreed to those 2007 benchmarks.
One of which was political reconciliation.
But he never pursued it, he never enacted it.
And then Barack comes along.
He doesn't make Nouri stop persecuting the Sunnis.
He doesn't demand that Nouri keep the reconciliation promise.
In fact, when Nouri loses the 2010 election (to Ayad Allawi), Barack goes out of his way to overturn the elections results (via the US-brokered Erbil Agreement) and give Nouri a second term that the Iraqi voters did not want.
And Nouri only got worse.
There is still no political reconciliation in Iraq.
And stop pretending that the US government has no power.
They've always had power.
And that has nothing to do with troops or war.
It has to do with Iraq's needs.
