diet_prada What's worse than an all white @revolve influencer trip? Cashing big fat checks in exchange for #content creation   (aka propaganda) to rehabilitate the image of Saudi Arabia, a country said to be causing "the world's worst humanitarian crisis", according to the United Nations. It's said six-figures sums were offered for attendance and gego-tagged posts.

Not much has changed whomever is US President: G.W. Bush, Barack Obama or Donald Trump ... people suffer limitless.

A clue was found near several of the dead Afghan fighters: ID badges from the private security company ArmorGroup at the American controller airfield up the road.

Why had a team of U.S. soldiers and Marines battled its own paid security detail?

U.S. military officials publicly touted the August 22, 2008, Azizabad raid -- Operation Commando Riot -- as a victory.  a high-value Taliban target had been killed; the collateral damage had been minimal, the village was grateful.

None of it was true.

The Taliban commander escaped. Dozens of civilians were dead in the rubble, including as many as 60 children. The local population rioted.

Airstrike in Baghdad kills powerful Iranian military leader, Gen. Qassim Soleimani
"'Make no mistake - this is bigger than taking out Osama Bin Laden,' tweeted Ranj Alaaldin, a visiting fellow at the Brookings Doha Center and director of a Carnegie Corporation project on proxy warfare in the Middle East."
US kills top Iranian General Soleimani in Baghdad airstrike
The US called Soleimani's killing a "defensive action."
[...]
"The deputy head of the Hashd, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, and head of the Quds Force, Qassim Soleimani, were killed in a US strike that targeted their car on the Baghdad International Airport road," Hashed Shaabi, also known as the Popular Moblization Forces (PMF), said in a statement early Friday.

The PMF earlier said five of its members and two "guests" were killed in an airstrike on their vehicles on the grounds of Baghdad International Airport on Friday.

The PMF also said that among those killed was Mohammed Reda al-Jaberi, who was the militia's protocol officer and head of public relations.
