Corruption is the Cancer that destroys Society through Governments


I do a lot of content consumption on the #Twitter, and only rarely reshare it in the #Fediverse, but this one I am. Seth Abramson, the well-known author, dropped a hell of a thread on Twitter yesterday. I read it this morning. He puts together the longer story of International #Corruption but centered on one of the #USA's biggest mistakes in history, Donald #Trump. November he knew about the pandemic and for "thirty pieces of silver" he sold out the world's people to get dirt on the #... Show more...

Are Russia and Turkey on a collision course?


"The #murder of the Iranian hero-martyr General #Soleimani created a situation in which a war between #Iran and the Axis of Kindness (USA/Israel/KSA) became a real possibility but, at the very last minute, Uncle Shmuel decided that he had no stomach for a full-scale war against Iran. Wise decision.

This, however, does not at all imply that the #AngloZionist #Empire decided to stand by idly, far from it. The need to take quick and determined action became particularly acute following the huge anti-US demonstrations... Show more...

Associated Press Sees “Hundreds” Where Pictures Show Millions


#Iraq #Baghdad #demonstrators #occupation #american #troops #US #bases #politics #international

At 10:01 UTC today the Associated Press tweeted that “hundreds” gather in central Baghdad to demand that American troops leave the country.

........
When AP sent the misleading tweet the commander of the Iraqi Federal Police Forces Jaffar al-Batat had already announced that the number of demonstrators exceeds one million.
