    Default U.S. Admits Possible Role in Arming Iranian-Backed Militants in Iraq

    U.S. officials acknowledged Iranian-backed forces in Iraq could be using American-made arms, an admission that comes amid growing concern on Capitol Hill the U.S. government is quietly working with militia fighters in Iraq who are directly tied to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), according to multiple sources familiar with the situation.
    U.S. lawmakers and military insiders are concerned by what they described as the American government’s continued arming and training of Iranian-backed fighters in Iraq, an ongoing policy that multiple sources described to the Washington Free Beacon as one of the U.S.’s chief foreign policy failures in the region.
    Top lawmakers and others have begun to present evidence showing that the State Department continues to provide widespread support for Iranian-backed militias in Iraq, a program that first begun under the Obama administration.

    Looking forward to the Trumpsplanation on this one.

    When it comes to Trump scuttling the Iran deal, it's great because Obama was soft and a secret Muslim and save the West, MAGA, etc.

    When it comes to Trump aiding pro-Iranian forces, it's great because...?

    -Ludwig von Mises

    "Patriotism, not nationalism, should inspire the citizen. The ethnic nationalist who wants a linguistically and culturally uniform nation is akin to the racist who is intolerant toward those who look (and behave) differently. The patriot is a "diversitarian"; he is pleased, indeed proud of the variety within the borders of his country; he looks for loyalty from all citizens. And he looks up and down, not left and right."

    -Erik Maria Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

    "All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

    One would have to be entirely ignorant of who has been running Iraq since we overthrew Saddam not to know about this. The people running Iraq have been Shiite allies of Iran the entire time. This was why ISIS was able to take over Northern Iraq so easily, as the Shiites running Iraq were screwing the Sunnis in Northern Iraq.

    We have aided Iraq (and through that, their Iranian allies) the entire time.

    The main purpose of this article from the Washington Neocon Beacon is to scream "Iran" and take advantage of ignorance of the situation in Iraq.

    The Russians.
    According to Anthony Sutton in "THE BEST ENEMY MONEY CAN BUY", the US also supported the "communist" Soviet Union in Afghanistan: http://macquirelatory.com/best_enemy_moneybuy.pdf

    Maybe you've heard of Heinz "Henry" Kissinger.
    Frank A. Capell in 1974 exposed Kissinger as a KGB (ODRA) agent: http://www.whale.to/b/allen_b2.html#...IND_THE_MYTH__

    This isn't any contradiction of course, as the Rockefeller family has effectively controlled both the KGB and CIA since the 1940s, and Kissinger was really a Rockefeller agent...
    Who gives Kissinger its orders now? Is it the personal adviser to Queen Elizabeth, "Sir" Evelyn de Rothschild, who lives at River House, 435 East 52nd street in New York. Other residents are Kissinger and Wilbur Ross Jr.

    Can we even go to war with Iran if we have the nuclear agreement? Kerry said that the Fed would fail if the nuke agreement wasn't done-that the dollar would no longer be the reserve currency. The secret with the Iran nuke agreement was that it was supposed to be set up to fail, and that Iran was supposed to break the agreement as a pretext for America to go to war with Iran. RT is quick to point out hat Saudi Arabia can't do it alone...RT fake news seems to imply that Saudi Arabia will initiate the war if they run out of oil, I guess that is so they can take Iran's oil?
