I want to start out this post to say I am so sorry for the people in London for the cowardice terrorist attack that was brought on them 2 days ago! My heart goes out to those people!
I have been compiling this for a couple of days, should have sent these sooner. Before I make this entry any longer I better upload it lol.
Some on twitter had been discussing how so many accounts have been suspended lately, and someone brought out this article. Figures, this sounds like the erdogan regime all the way!
Turkey tried to censor Twitter thousands of times last year
I think I read the longer version of this a couple of weeks ago. I love this group, I think what these women are doing in a region of the world where this has not always and still isn’t in many quarters acceptable is amazing and refreshing!
The YPJ: Fighting Isis on the frontline
I’ve heard the audio where Kerry admitted to some Syrian opposition that the US watched the rise of ISIS hoping it’d force the Assad Regime to negotiate. There is audio here too. I don’t like all that Trump does, and much of what he stands for I hate! But unfortunately I do believe this from much that has come out, and out of Kerry’s own mouth that we encouraged and funded some groups that are not moderate, in-order to get rid of Assad. Stupid, stupid! No matter how you feel about Assad, for the US to back extremists just to get rid of him, no! This is just a hugely flawed policy it’s not funny! Al-Nusra has claimed the US, Turkey, and Israel, yep, Israel sent them weapons, and people to train there forces when Obama was in office. Not that you can completely trust Al-Nusra, but it wouldn’t surprise me with the other stuff that has come out! Oh and by the way, Al-Nusra is basically Al-Quita in Syria.

An interesting article on Iraq’s Muqtada al-Sadr. He’s surely evolved since the days of the US war and occupation there in 2003.
EXCLUSIVE: Sectarian militias have no place in Iraq, says Muqtada al-Sadr
This is so sad! Sometimes when I read what Turkey is doing to it’s people it makes me so angry I want to go through this computer and beat me some Turks (of course the guilty ones) lol. But, when I read some things I just feel such an overwhelming since of sadness! When I hear about any country oppressing it’s people, it is so foreign to me as an American that it just makes me feeling so helpless and angry! Then there are times that the sadness is even stronger. When I read this I felt that way. I criticize my country for many things, but this type of oppression we do not have here. When I realize how angry it makes me at times, how angry must it make those oppressed people and there loved ones? I would want to kill someone if they did that to someone I loved, I can tell you that!
