Following his first term as Isrel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu testified to Congress on Sept. 12, 2002 as a private citizen, and advised Congress that a U.S. invasion of Iraq would be “a good choice.” LIKE us on Facebook Now read this:Lindsey Graham Takes Cheap Shot At Nancy Pelosi; Apologizes […]

Afghanistan Marine veteran Hunter Garth (pictured) is tired of hearing “Thank you for your service.” Mike Freedman, a Green Beret, calls it the “thank you for your service phenomenon.” To some recent vets — by no stretch all of them — the thanks comes across as shallow, disconnected, a reflexive offering from people who, while […]

When the Bush Administration emptied the U.S. coffers for their boondoggle in Iraq, there was no shortage of people ready to cash in. While the architects of the Iraq War continue to enjoy freedom, military members and contractors who took part in the massive graft are finally feeling the long arm of justice. Enter George […]

U.S. forces are amassing and training 20,000 to 25,000 Iraqi and Kurdish forces in preparation for a spring attack to retake Mosul, Iraq from an estimated 1,000 to 2,000 fighters of the Islamic State, or ISIS.

If you have millions of dollars and like morbidity. The New York Post reports that Mowaffak Al-Rubaie, a former Iraqi politician who witnessed the hanging execution of Hussein, put the noose up for auction.
