NATO chief: Iraq asks us to stay in the country

NATO Secy-Gen. Jens Stollenberg told defense ministers meeting in Brussels on Thursday: “The Iraqi government has given NATO the green light to stay in the country.” Just weeks ago, Baghdad demanded foreign troops leave Iraq after the US assassinated Iranian general Qassem Soleimani. Stollenberg reported that Iraq still wishes to continue “NATO training, advising and capacity building activities for the Iraqi armed forces.” President Donald Trump has been prodding the alliance to do more in support of US efforts in the region.

    The UN Human Rights Council just announced its blacklist boycott list of companies – including Airbnb – profiting from doing business in Palestine – that’s a tremendous win for Rodger Waters and recognized existential BDS victory

      Absolutely but when you consider the string and trend it’s even more amazing
      The forced labeling of the Palestinian produce like Psagot Winery, oof!
      Then there is the formal ICC Israeli war crimes investigation to be announced originally in March, now delayed for a month or two, while the Netanyahu Trial of the Century takes place at The Hague and hopefully incarceration swiftly following as a matter of course
      Wait a tic! – forgot Mandelblits prosecution! – it’s like a tsunami

        Previous month I was able to withdraw my first five figure check ever!!! I’ve been working for this online agency for year and a half, and I’ve never been happier! I am able to generate over $95 every 30 minutes, and the most important thing about it is the fact that I am not really that tech-savvy, they just demand basic understanding of internet and basic typing skill! Amazing thing about this is that I have more time for my family, friends and our favorite activities while having full freedom over my finances. This is one of the greatest opportunities for anyone willing to try it out. To see how, go to this page, there you’ll find all necessary details http://compflair.oqru.com/

      Netanyahu is the one that always laughed at Barak for saying the tsunami on Israel he was always warning about never came and now look who’s laughing last if you can call it that – Ehud scored on that one all right

    Netanyahu is the one who made it a point to always publicly laugh at Barak for saying that the tsunami on Israel he was always warning about never came – and now look who’s laughing last if you can call it that – Ehud looks like a psychic clairvoyant

    Everybody knows that Netanyahu and the Neocons attempted with to start a war Iran in order to cover up their next step – they’re now selling attempted Seizure of Palestine – all that is common knowledge.
    What many people don’t understand is they failed in getting a war on Iran to cover up seizure of Palestine, they were essentially defeated in a world war 3 against the rest of humanity. So it’s sure good thing they lost that and so much more

    What a lie! The NATO and Americans are there to steal the oil and to brutally enforce the petrodollar as the global reserve currency. This bullying will soon go away. Good riddance.
