The registered number of evacuees under the #VandeBharatMission  has officially crossed the previous record held by the 1990 airlift of Indians from Kuwait after the invasion of the country by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq

A 92-year-old Italian, recalling the G.I.s who parachuted in to liberate his country from fascism, says he now sees the ghost of Mussolini. In Iraq, people share photos that compare President Trump holding up a Bible with Saddam Hussein clutching a Quran.

"This is what autocrats do. This is what happens in countries before a collapse." "It reminded me of what I reported on for years in the third world. Saddam. Bashar. Qaddafi. They all did this.” Ex-CIA analysts speak out on violence against protesters:

@GregHands  English. That would be the Iraq war that came after you Tories criticised us for being too slow to take down Saddam, and then changed your minds a bit after the event. Gute Nacht. Bis Morgen.

"Saddam. Bashar. Qaddafi. They all did this." - retired CIA operative, observing Trump's response to protests

Biden said last night: “[Bush] said he was not going to go into Iraq. He said he was only using this to unite the UN, to insist we get inspectors in to see what Saddam was doing.” When and where, Mr. VP? I don’t recall Bush ever saying that. Mr. Biden, when and where?

Suleimani has lots of blood on his hands. So did Saddam Hussein. And assassinating him is the single most reckless act of American foreign policy since the Iraq War.

Joe Biden, five years before invasion, said the only way of disarming Iraq is "taking Saddam down" by @ryangrim 

When I tweet skepticism about the killing of Soleimani, I get pushback from people saying that he was a bad man, so we were right to kill him. Reminds me of 2003 when hawks argued that Saddam was a bad man so we should invade. They didn't appreciate how high the price would be.

I remember Tony Blair telling me that if Britain didn't enter the Euro, it would lead to financial disaster for the country. Then he told me Britain had to go to war with Iraq because Saddam had WMD. So I'd take his 'Brexit will be a disaster' claims with a pinch of salt.

I can’t understand why a respected lady like Didi is behaving like Saddam Hussain! Ironically, democracy is under threat and in danger by Dictator Didi herself. First #PriyankaSharma  & now #TajinderBagga . यह दीदीगिरी नही चलेगी ! #SaveBengalSaveDemocracy  #FreeTajinderBagga

In Sept 2002, then-former PM Benjamin Netanyahu told US Congress that there was “no question whatsoever” that Saddam Hussein was developing nuclear weapons. He said: “I guarantee you” that toppling Saddam would have “enormous positive reverberations on the region.”

FDR didn’t meet w/ the Japanese after Pearl Harbor. George H.W. Bush didn’t meet w/ Saddam after Iraq invaded Kuwait. And George W. Bush didn’t meet w/ Bin Laden after 9/11. So tell me, , what does America get out of you meeting w/ Putin after he attacked us?

Damn, Ari. I’ve been through this BS before. Cheney started out your push for war in a major speech claiming Saddam was amassing WMDs to use against the US. There was no intelligence concluding that. It was a lie.

Ken Burns told me Robert E Lee killed more Americans than Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Ho Chi Minh, Saddam Hussein & Osama bin Laden combined.
