(Prepare For Change There is no reason for the Pentagon to be depressed, despondent, or angry over the fact that Iraqi officials are kicking the Pentagon out of Iraq. The Pentagon doesn’t belong in Iraq in the first place.
First, it’s important to keep in mind that ever since the Pentagon and the rest of the U.S. national-security establishment lost their official Cold War enemy, the Soviet Union, with the end of the Cold War in 1989, Iraq never invaded the United States or even threatened to do so. In the 30 years that the Pentagon has been killing people and wreaking destruction in Iraq, it has always been the Pentagon that has been the aggressor and Iraq the defender. →
Tomorrow in the UK a judge will start the process of answering a very important question. It’s a question that many of us knew was the heart of this debate back in 2010, ten years ago, when this all started. It’s a question that they have been obfuscating, bloviating, huffily denying, smearing, gaslighting, and distracting from–basically doing anything they can to hide it from view.
It’s a question that they don’t want the public to know that we are answering. A question that goes to the heart of democracy, and to the heart of the role of the fourth estate, journalism. And that question is this:
Should journalists and publishers be punished for exposing US war crimes? →
(Prepare For Change) Netanyahu’s frenzied lobbying efforts to halt the ICC probe suggests that the probe greatly worries him, particularly as he has linked his current reelection bid to illegal acts like his planned annexation of the West Bank.

Human suffering is in no short supply on this twisted littler planet of ours, and while most everyone today has their eyes on the emerging coronavirus crisis, I was just reminded that some catastrophes have become a permanent background to everyday life.
PM, defense ministers, IDF chiefs, low-level soldiers could all face prosecution if probe launched; minister: Netanyahu should give PA ultimatum — pull ICC appeal or be torn down
By Jacob Magid,

(Activist Post) President Donald Trump was just impeached; no it wasn’t because of the supposed Russia collusion, which is all we heard about over the last two years from the sold-out media, which by the way was proven to be false. It was because of misconduct or a ‘quid pro quo,’ as the media put it, which allegedly occurred during a phone call between President Trump and the president of Ukraine. You know, the same Ukraine that was the victim of a bloody coup, carried out under the Obama Administration that ousted the democratically elected government, which then installed a puppet regime and just so happened to airlift all of Ukraine’s gold reserves out of the country? Right, that Ukraine.
Most Americans would be shocked if they knew that their country was responsible for and had caused the deaths of 20 to 30 million people since World War Two, a level of carnage approaching that inflicted on Europe by Adolf Hitler himself.
In comparison to the millions of innocent lives lost by illegal wars cloaked in the name of democracy, will this current Trump impeachment withstand the test of time? Let’s examine a few examples of actual impeachable offenses committed by U.S. presidents and the perfect example of what they are trying to impeach President Trump for right now. →

Eighteen years into the longest war in US history, we are finally finding out, thanks to thousands of pages of classified interviews on the war published by the Washington Post last week, that General Lute’s cluelessness was shared by virtually everyone involved in the war. →
