With Trump, GOP Closes the Circuit of Iraqi Betrayal

January 31, 2017

Yeah. It’s relevant. Because this is all about a War for Oil, isn’t it?

Yeah, and by this, I mean, THIS. All of it.

In a remarkable tour-de-force of malignant incompetence, the Trump administration has managed to erode US standing in the Middle East to new lows.

With this stroke, the US Republican Party closes the final abominable circuit of a cycle of Betrayal of the Iraqi people, that began in 2003.

CBS News:

BAGHDAD — Gen. Talib al Kenani commands the elite American-trained counter terrorist forces that have been leading the fight against ISIS for two years.

“I’m a four star general, and I’m banned from entering the U.S.?” he said.

His family was relocated to the U.S. for their safety, and he’d had plans to see them next week, until he was told not to bother.

“I have been fighting terrorism for 13 years and winning,” he said. “Now my kids are now asking if I’m a terrorist?”

CBS News met the general at his heavily fortified compound inside the Green Zone.

For the past decade, Kenani has been travelling to U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Florida for high-level meetings with the U.S. military leadership.

“There are many American troops here in Iraq,” he said. “After this ban how are we supposed to deal with each other?”

The general said he may try again to travel later this week, but he still doesn’t have any guarantee he won’t be turned around. He said the ban came as a shock, and no one in his circles had any idea it was coming.

If only someone had warned us.

Aljazeera:

Iraqi members of parliament have voted to call on the government to enact a reciprocal travel ban on US citizens, if Washington does not withdraw its decision to prohibit the entry of Iraqis.

The move is a response to US President Donald Trump’s executive order barring citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries – Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen – from entering the United States for at least 90 days.

The vote on Monday is not thought to be binding on the government of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, whose government has made no official comment on the order.

The parliament called on the Baghdad administration to “respond in kind to the American decision in the event that the American side does not to withdraw its decision”, a parliamentary official who was present for the vote told AFP news agency, quoting text of the decision that was read at the session.

Not so much a post-Stewart Daily Show fan, but this synopsis of where we are is excruciatingly, and hilariously, well observed.

    Oh my God. Did this actually happen the these individuals. There must have been millions of others,

    • dumboldguy Says:

      Are there any folks out there who are sufficiently drunk to translate what our ever-inebriated friend Ron is saying?

  2. Ron Voisin Says:

    There is something I haven’t said…as dumboldguy has.

    I’m not Earth’s cancer.

    He has told us he knows in his heart that he is Earth’s cancer.

    Dumboldguy has confessed the disease of his thinking…and I, for one, take him at his word.

    I’ve offered to eulogize him favorably as soon he fully accepts the required deed of his conviction. Knowing the disaster of his existence, he will surely take action soon.

    I will all miss him???

    • dumboldguy Says:

      “I will all miss him???” WTF is that supposed to mean? Have another drink, Ron.

      Not that Crockers need reminding, because they are smarter and WAY more sober than Ron, but what I said was to the effect that the whole human race was a “cancer” on the biosphere, the “immune system” of the planet was rejecting us, and with any luck, was going to wipe us out before we killed of all life on earth.

      Ron thinks he is SO clever with his maunderings and drunken talk of my needing to do away with myself, but he should know by now that the general thinking among Crockers is that HE, Bates, and Russell Cook are the ones that everyone is hoping “will take action soon” and go away.

      And that reminds me of another “drunk” that used to frequent Crock but has disappeared—-Adrian Vance, whose natterings were so delusional and disjointed that I referred to him as “ADrunk”. Lots of “V’s”with drinking problems here—Vance, Vierotchka, Voisin—and that brings some “v” adjectives to mind to describe them—–vague, vain, vexing, vile, vomitous, vulgar.

    Can we get back on topic and ignore the drunken moronic troll?

    The Daily Show clip is terrific and has actually buoyed my spirits a bit. The huge backblast that The Pussy Grabber’s action has produced is great. The pictures of white folks grabbing Muslims and thanking them for being Muslim, Muslims praying in airports, and white women turning scarves into hijabs are actually encouraging. I am wondering why there weren’t more black faces there, though—-maybe they’re laying low and letting the Muslims take the heat for a while?—-or they’re worried that they’ll get shot?.

    Oil and the Dakota access pipeline. I’ve seen a lot of Kiwi support especially among the Maori, but also among the the rest. Need to share this Washington Post news release before turning in. I’ve worked as a brother with the U.S COE and know they will follow orders what ever they are.

    “Army Corps ordered to issue final Dakota Access pipeline permit, two lawmakers say”
