Try clicking on the "world" or "middle east" sections. It is not hard to find relevant stories.



A massive demonstration –called for by a prominent Shia cleric– has flooded the streets of the Iraq's capital Baghdad, with thousands voicing their anger at the US military presence there.


Nothing relevant


Wow!
That's almost as big as Trump's inauguration crowd!

That is relevant and becoming more so daily. There's this rocket attack yesterday as well. There's some unrest in Iraq. The factions involved are the Iraqi government, the US, the Shia militias and all the normal people. Is it just me or do the normal people seem to be the one's always getting the shaft?

WOW!!

For a millionth of a second I thought that was a picture of Trump's inauguration... then I immediately realized that this is actually a lot of people unlike Trump's inauguration.

This is a little off topic but I'll post it here anyway. It's an article written by a man on Death Row in Bahrain, a nation allied with the US, from Newsweek .

On Wednesday (March 11) the Camp Taji Airbase in Northern Iraq was attacked by missiles. 2 American soldiers and one British soldier were killed according to The Defense Post . The following day US forces conducted 5 strikes against weapons caches used by the Iranian backed Kataib Hezbollah militia, the group US intelligence said was behind the attack.
On Saturday a second missile attack on Camp Taji Airbase wounded 5 according to Military.com .
Is this is a ramping up of hostilities from earlier this year that ended with a downed Ukraine Airliner and a rocket attack on another base in Iraq or is this just a local militia going full hooha on coalition forces? Maybe the Iranian Theocracy needs something to grab their populations attention as they are not at all happy with their government at present. Check out this blog post on the topic.

Yet another rocket attack on a coalition base in Iraq. Not the top news story obviously, this is from Al-Jazeera . According to the BBC the US is pulling out of it's most forward bases in response to the rocket attacks.

Yes, I thought I heard they were consolidating. Closing the smaller bases.

Maybe we aught to call on Turkey and Syria to help squish those little gnats.

We've already got Turkey busy taking our place in Syria.

There's a new player in town, Usbat al-Thaireen (The Revolutionary League). These guys are here to take the credit for rocketing the bases housing US personnel in Iraq. This blog post has some information and links. It's also been reported by Newsweek the US spy satellites didn't even know the drone was coming to kill Soleimani. wait what?
