Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So this PR from central casting is a refreshing, simply ridiculous proof of the axiom. You know which one I mean.

At the end of a day online, a long list of "US-led coalition forces" euphemisms opposed to the Assad regime or IS/ISIL/DAESH/al-Qaida-in-* still does not include any Iraqi group--regular or irregular, Shi'ite or Sunni. That's a magnificent tell on the true state of US occupation skillz.

Trump ups Iran accusations: Four US embassies targeted
Screen cap to memorialize the latest string of non sequiturs emanating to the keyboards of a free press. And beat the next scheduled "update."

IS/ISIL/DAESH/al-Qaida-in-* unexpectedly makes an entrance with a previously unreported "barrage of missiles" against WHICH US-Iraq military or air base?

Unidentified planes hit Iraqi militiamen in Syria, killing 8, 10 Jan
An Iraqi security official and another official, who was from the Iran-backed Iraqi militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, said warplanes targeted two vehicles carrying missiles on the Syrian side of the border. The strike was most likely carried out by Israeli warplanes, they said, but offered no evidence.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment. The Pentagon did not respond to a request for comment on the Syria bombing, which comes at a time of high tension between Iran and the U.S.
The U.S. carried out military strikes in the area on Dec. 29, killing 25 members of an Iran-backed Iraqi militia, in retaliation to a rocket attack on a military base in Iraq that killed a U.S. contractor. The U.S. blamed that attack on a Iranian-backed Iraqi militia.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
