SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS JUST PROVIDED AMERICA WITH ANOTHER REASON TO SUPPORT HIM: IF HE WINS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY'S PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION, HE'LL GET RID OF DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ AS D.N.C. CHAIR.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, THE GREASE FACED WASHER WOMAN DEBBIE TOLD THESE REPORTERS, "I AM A MONSTER WITH FEELINGS! DON'T PEOPLE REALIZE THAT! MONSTERS HAVE FEELINGS TOO! AND GREASY FACES! I HAVE A GREASY FACE! AND GREASY HAIR! WHY AM I SO DISGUSTING! WHY!"
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Today, the US destroys Iraq with bombings, for years it has destroyed Iraq by installing 'leaders.'
Shi'ites who were too chicken to fight for Iraq, fled it and returned after the US-led invasion.
These cowards -- and all their pathetic, deep-rooted fears -- were installed as 'leaders.'
And they've destroyed the country with their petty nonsense and their night time terrors.
Take the pathetic Ibrahim al-Jaafari.
Today, he's the Minister of Foreign Affairs. His other positions since 2003 would include prime minister of Iraq.
Since 2003 because the Shi'ite fled Iraq in 1980. First he ran to Iran and spent nearly a decade there only to move on to London in 1989.
But when it was safe to come back to Iraq, the coward did and wanted to be a leader because what says "leader" more than fleeing while wetting your pants?
Today, Ibrahim's in the news for demanding Jordan turn Raghad Saddam Hussein al-Majid over to Iraq.
She's the eldest daughter of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
Hussein was overthrown in the 2003 US-led invasion and later executed (December 30, 2006).
And his oldest daughter?
ASHARQ AL-AWSAT reported in 2010:
Raghad Saddam Hussein, the eldest daughter of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein fled to Jordan on two separate occasions in her life. Raghad Hussein first fled to Jordan in 1995 along with her husband Hussein Kamel al-Majid who defected from Iraq along with Rana Saddam Hussein and her husband Saddam Kamel al-Majid. Raghad Hussein fled to Jordan for a second time in 2003 following the US invasion of Iraq and the collapse of her father’s regime. Raghad Hussein fled in fear of punishment; in 1995 she fled in order to save her husband’s life from her brother Uday, while in 2003 she fled in fear of the Iraqi people taking revenge against her father by attacking her. Raghad Hussein fled to Amman, where she was placed under the protection of the Jordanian monarch. In 1995, Jordanian King Hussein treated Raghad and Rana Hussein as his own two daughters, and they lived with the Jordanian royals in the royal palace. Whilst in 2003, King Abdullah placed Raghad Hussein under his protection as his guest.
In 2007, INTERPOL issued a Red Notice (which many in the press falsely called an arrest warrant) but BBC NEWS noted the Red Notice "does not legally oblige Jordan or any other country to act."
Not only that but Arabic and Islamic law are both on Raghad's side -- a detail often overlooked by the press.
In 2006, Nouri al-Maliki repeatedly accused of her funding the insurgency and, years later, the Iraqi government began insisting that she was funding the Islamic State.
Over ten years of accusations and nothing to show for it but high drama.
THE JERUSALEM POST notes, "In a statement released Wednesday following a meeting between the Jordanian consul in the city of Irbil and senior Iraqi officials, Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari said: 'Iraq asked Jordan to coordinate the extradition of people residing in its territory who are wanted by the Iraqi judicial system'."
Nothing's ever been proven regarding Raghad Hussein and she's a guest of the King of Jordan who, following Arabic and Islamic law, is under no legal obligation to hand her over to Iraq.
This blood lust for vengeance is why Iraq cannot move forward.
Mohammad Tayseer and Dana Khraiche (BLOOMBERG NEWS) report, "Iraq has reached a $5.4 billion, three-year loan agreement with the International Monetary Fund to help OPEC’s second-biggest producer repair public finances damaged by the plunge in oil prices and war with Islamic State militants."
The revenge fantasies, where the daughter of Saddam Hussein must be captured and flogged in the streets of Baghdad?
They are raw meat tossed to the masses to distract them from the ongoing corruption in Iraq.
Billions of dollars have disappeared from the country's coffers as a result of corrupt politicians and officials.
Rather than fretting over the daughter of Saddam Hussein, they might ask how Nouri al-Maliki's son ended up with all those sports cars and residences outside of Iraq.
Where did that money come from?
How did Nouri's two terms as prime minister of Iraq leave him such a wealthy man?
Those are questions that need to be asked.
The Iraqi people live in squalor.
They have no dependable public services.
Baghdad floods in the raining season -- water up to the knees in some sections (including Sadr City) and that's due to the crumbling public infrastructure.
The corruption is not a secret.
There have been US Congressional hearings on the topic going back to the years when Bully Boy Bush occupied the White House.
Billions have been stolen.
And now the IMF is getting their hooks into Iraq.
THE JORDAN TIMES reports:
The IMF $5.4 billion loan to Iraq will have an annual interest rate of 1.5 per cent, Iraq's Central Bank Governor Ali Al Alak said at a press conference, following a week of talks with IMF officials in Jordan, Reuters reported.
The IMF deal will allow Iraq to secure additional financial aid of around $15 billion over the next three years, including securing international bonds, according to [Iraq's Finance Minister Hoshiyar] Zebari.
At this late stage, who's still pretending that the IMF helps out countries in trouble?
After Argentina, who still believes that lie?
