  1. https://www.ihr.org/leaflets/iraqwar.shtml Whatever the secondary reasons for the war, the crucial factor in President Bush's decision to attack was to help Israel. With support from Israel and America's Jewish-Zionist lobby, and prodded by Jewish "neo-conservatives" holding high-level positions in his administration, President Bush - who was already fervently committed to Israel - resolved to invade and subdue one of Israel's chief regional enemies. This is so widely understood in Washington that US Senator Ernest Hollings was moved in May 2004 to acknowledge that the US invaded Iraq "to secure Israel," and "everybody" knows it. He also identified three of the influential pro-Israel Jews in Washington who played an important role in prodding the US into war: Richard Perle, chair of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board; Paul Wolfowitz, Deputy Defense Secretary; and Charles Krauthammer, columnist and author. [1] Hollings referred to the cowardly reluctance of his Congressional colleagues to acknowledge this truth openly, saying that "nobody is willing to stand up and say what is going on." Due to "the pressures we get politically," he added, members of Congress uncritically support Israel and its policies. Some months before the invasion, retired four-star US Army General and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Wesley Clark acknowledged in an interview: "Those who favor this attack [by the US against Iraq] now will tell you candidly, and privately, that it is probably true that Saddam Hussein is no threat to the United States. But they are afraid at some point he might decide if he had a nuclear weapon to use it against Israel."

  3. if I remember right, israel complained about iraq having bombs and that is why we invaded iraq.
  4. the middle east has been complicated for ages. trump thought everything would be a piece of cake, granted he didn't help matters by siding with israel like he did. i don't see an easy solution. my only guess would be that saudia arabia doesn't want war and have them give their advice on what to do,
  5. trump is the biggest supporter of zionism of all US presidents.
  6. really you claim that?? do you know something the world doesn't know? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_and_White_(political_alliance) Blue and White (Hebrew: כַּחוֹל לָבָן‎‎, romanized: Kaḥol Lavan) is a centrist[6] and liberal[7] political alliance in Israel. The party was established to run in the April 2019 Knesset elections by the Israel Resilience Party, Yesh Atid and Telem,[8] in hopes of defeating Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Blue and White defines itself as a pluralistic party representing all citizens on the political and religious spectrums.[9] The phrase "blue and white" refers to the colors of the Israeli flag, and is colloquially used to describe something as being typically Israeli.[10] The central tenets of the Blue and White party platform include: introducing prime ministerial term limits, barring indicted politicians from serving in the Knesset, amending the Nation-State Law to include Israeli minorities, investing in early education, expanding health care, and re-entering negotiations with the Palestinian Authority for a peace agreemen

Five days before last week's election, his official Facebook page said that Arabs "want to annihilate us all — women, children and men,” although the Likud Party later disowned the statement ---------------------------
  8. who knows? they go to the same spot they have gone to centuries. they are pretty much creatures of habit
  9. balloon releases are totally unneccesary. while I am sympathetic to murders,-- the number one reason for balloon releases-- i don't see the validation to destroy the environment and create choking hazards for birds and other animals.
  10. spraying pesticides is a major factor for bird loss. all that spraying because of zika was enough to wipe out birds completely in many areas. balloon releases which do not have to be done don't help either. this is a known fact but still people release hundreds of balloons at a time several times a year.
  11. Frida Ghitis uses the term "gaslighting" to describe Russia's global relations. While Russian operatives were active in Crimea, Russian officials continually denied their presence and manipulated the distrust of political groups in their favor.[27] Journalists at the New York Times Magazine, BBC and Teen Vogue, as well as psychologists Bryant Welch, Robert Feldman and Leah McElrath, have described some of the actions of Donald Trump during the 2016 US presidential election and his term as president as examples of gaslighting.[25][28][29][30][31]Ben Yagoda wrote in the Chronicle of Higher Education in January 2017, that the term gaslighting had become topical again as the result of Trump's behavior, saying that Trump's "habitual tendency to say "X", and then, at some later date, indignantly declare, 'I did not say "X". In fact, I would never dream of saying "X"'" had brought new notability to the term.[5] In romantic relationships Gaslighting is often experienced in romantic relationships. The psychological manipulation may include making the victim question their own memory, perception, and sanity. The abuser may invalidate the victim's experiences using dismissive language: "You’re crazy. Don’t be so sensitive. Don’t be paranoid. I was just joking! ... I'm worried; I think you're not well."[18] 2] In fiction As mentioned above, the name of the abuse derived from the Patrick Hamilton play Gaslightand the film adaptations released in 1940 and 1944. It depicts this type of abuse as occurring to the wife of an abuser. The 1944 American film version was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Screenplay, and won the Academy Award for Best Actress (for the lead star Ingrid Bergman) and Best Production Design.[citation needed]i[39]
  12. I didn't say it was a country. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Iraqi Kurdistan has opened its doors to the international world by opening two international airports. Erbil International Airport and Sulaimaniyah International Airport, which both operate flights to Middle Eastern and European destinations. The KRG spent millions of dollars on the airports to attract international carriers, and currently Turkish Airlines, Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa, Etihad, Royal Jordanian, Emirates, Gulf Air, Middle East Airlines, Atlas Jet, and Fly Dubai all service the Region. There are at least 2 military airfields in Iraqi Kurdistan.[89]
  13. kurdistan accepts refugees from everywhere.. they are a very nice people. Refugees See also: Refugees of the Syrian Civil War and Internally displaced persons in Iraq The Kurdistan Region is hosting 1.2 million displaced Iraqis who have been displaced by the ISIS war, as of early December 2017. There were about 335,000 in the area prior to 2014 with the rest arriving in 2014 as a result of unrest in Syria and attacks by the Islamic State.[101] In addition the Kurdistan Region hosts around 240,000 Syrian refugees who fled the Syrian Civil War, as of January 201
  14. the kurds are the US allies, we were extremely lucky that they fought isis. http://www.kurdistan24.net/en/news/21b18fc0-4adc-4e9d-ab18-45914be81073 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- US officials, among them Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have made it clear they do not want Turkey “to slaughter” the Kurds, their partners against the Islamic State, when Washington retreats from Syria, a move seen as a betrayal by many Kurds who lost thousands of men and women during the war. “It is important that we do everything we can to make sure that those folks that fought with us are protected and Erdogan has made commitments, he understands that,” Pompeo said during a Wednesday visit to the Kurdistan Region capital Erbil
  15. he ceded his role to turkey last year, when the turkish president asked him to take the US troops out of syria so the turkish army could go into syria and kill the kurds who are US allies in figting isis, and trump said yes he would do that.
  16. the US army didn't like trump's pull out either. https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/15/politics/joseph-votel-troops-syria-intl/index.html
