Pres Trump says he wants to keep a base in Iraq because he wants to be “looking a little bit at Iran.”

Iraqi Pres. @BarhamSalih tells me, definitively, “we do not want our territory to be a staging post for any hostile action against any of our neighbors, including Iran.”

Does the Iraqi President see parallels between the run-up to the Iraq war in 2003 and the rhetoric now around Iran?
Saddam Hussein, @BarhamSalih tells me, was a unique case, BUT…

“The parallel is as follows: It’s easy to start a war, but very, very difficult to end a war.”

“We in Iraq have suffered from sanctions,” Pres @BarhamSalih tells me.

He says there’s a “fundamental question” if sanctions change behavior.

Abandoning the Iran nuclear deal alltogether “could be disastrous for the whole neighborhood, not just for Iran, and not just for Iraq.”

"The body is heavy... If we take plastic bags and cut it into pieces, it will be finished."

The details in a UN Rapporteur's new investigation into the murder of #JamalKhashoggi are horrifying beyond belief.

I put them to Saudi Arabia's minister of state for foreign affairs.

It was shocking not only for what it says about President Trump’s state of mind, but for all but authorizing authoritarian regimes around the world to target CNN and other journalists. Without journos’ sacrifice and service, all that remains is propaganda and lies. Damned lies.
