Our Iraq

You Americans have left my country of Iraq broken and splintered. I long for the days under Saddam Hussein. However, I feel conflicted by this sentiment that I know my countrymen share. He may have not been a benevolent ruler, but he kept the extremists at bay. Now I have to worry about the prospect of a Sunni caliphate oppressing my people. The ISIS are knocking at our door. I look at the strict cultural changes in Afghanistan since the war between the Soviets and American-financed Mujahideen broke out and wonder if the same fate will befall my family. Your American regime is back tracking on its plan to leave us alone by considering the use of air strikes to aid us in defense against the ISIS. Haven’t you caused enough strife? What consequences will come of your continued involvement in our affairs? We must be the ones to settle this dispute. Iran is already offering their services. They actually have a stake in who takes control of my country; not you. I must make this sincere plea to your people. Lay down your arrogant beliefs of how you think my people can be saved. Every action you take leads to harsher circumstances my people have to endure.

  Sometimes I believe you Americans are our secret ally. You do our work for us! You pretended that we had a presence in Iraq to suit your interests. Now, because of you, we have the ability to succeed in our goal for an Islamic state in Iraq and Syria. I must ask that you continue your slights against Muslims. With every wrong you commit, a new group of militants is recruited to our cause. This is what we want. You have practically littered the battlefield with weapons at our disposal. We are more clever than you. Your policies have been turned against you. You have even gone so far as to provide us with support to defeat Bashar al-Assad’s government. I didn’t know it was so easy to deceive you. On behalf of my Sunni brother’s I thank you and wish to continue doing business.

  I will bring to your attention two scenes in which the United States’ first battle of Fallujah in 2004 has wreaked destruction on the human lives inside the city from the perspective of an Iraqi civilian and an embedded American journalist.

Remember the 2 FBI agents involved in Dzhokar Tsarnaev's arrest & "fell out of helicopter"?

Newspaper Says FBI Holding Out on Agents' Deaths

RICHMOND, Va. (CN) - The Virginian-Pilot newspaper sued the FBI claiming the agency is wrongly withholding information on the training-related deaths of two hostage rescue team members.

In a lawsuit filed in the federal court in Norfolk, Va., the newspaper's publisher and reporter Scott Daugherty claim the FBI improperly documents related to the May 17, 2013, deaths of agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw during a training exercise.

Daugherty says he requested reports and memos on the incident in its immediate aftermath, but that request was denied by the agency 10 days later. A subsequent appeal to the Department of Justice was also denied earlier this year, the complaint says.

The accident occurred at the Critical Incident Response Group headquarters in Quantico, Va., where the special agents fell while "fast-roping" out of a helicopter during a counterterrorism training exercise.

Cynics, Step Aside: There Is Genuine Excitement Over A Hillary Clinton Candidacy

"It’s easy to strike a pose of cynicism when contemplating Hillary Clinton’s inevitable (and terribly imminent) presidential campaign. As a drearily soulless, principle-free, power-hungry veteran of DC’s game of thrones, she’s about as banal of an American politician as it gets. One of the few unique aspects to her, perhaps the only one, is how the genuinely inspiring gender milestone of her election will (following the Obama model) be exploited to obscure her primary role as guardian of the status quo."

I Was On Michael Medved's National Radio Show Yesterday Supporting Jesse Ventura...

The liar Medved had Jesse on his show (mainly to bash him) and Medved took calls from listeners.

After several sheeples called and criticized Jesse for his anti-war stance I got through and gave Jesse a little support.

After I stated that Jesse was correct about abolishing political parties and that people had better start to listen to this man, Medved rudely interrupted me and implied that I didn't even know the name of my representatives in Washington State.

But to his dismay I DID know and I named them and asked him to stop interrupting me while I was talking to Jesse.

21 Year Old Woman Sues Parents for College Tuition...and Wins?!?

There’s an inflated sense of entitlement…and then there’s this. 21 year old Caitlyn Ricci is suing her parents for the crime of not paying her college tuition. It can be argued whether or not a parent should pay all or a portion of a college student’s tuition – or even if the child should attend college at all – but most reasonable people would agree that this should not be a matter of law, but rather a personal decision made by parents based on their situation.

Sometimes It's hard to be a good person

I've always believed that our actions define us as human beings. That the things we do, are the sum of our character. That we all have a choice in who we choose to be. And I still believe that, but I also know now, because age has worn down my sharp edges, that choices are not equal. Yes you can choose to always be honest and good and decent. Most people would rather do the right thing, I know I would, and I try to always do the right thing but sometimes it's hard to be good and honest.

I grew up on the street as a teenager. I was always hungry, I was always in need of a place to sleep, and it was hard not to steal. I stole food from the grocery stores when I could get away with it. I panhandled on the streets when I could get away with it. I spent countless hours in the public libraries reading in the cool air conditioning. I never went to high school, and I couldn't get a job because they wanted ID which I didn't have since I was only 14. So I stole, and I haunted the bus terminals, the libraries, even the local USO who always fed me even though they knew I wasn't a vet.

I met so many decent people who tried to help me in so many ways, I cannot express even all these years later the gratitude I feel towards the people who gave me such good examples of what a human being is all about. I also met many more who wanted nothing better than to use me or hurt me, or control me.

I wish I could take back all the things I did that hurt other people. I wish I could live my life over again making the right choices this time. I wish I could make up for the pain I caused my poor father who made his own poor choices for which we suffered, but who loved me nonetheless.

German Journalist Tells All About His Involvement with the CIA on the Lions of Liberty Podcast

In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I am joined by Udo Uflkotte, a former editor of the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeinne, and author of (translated from the German) “Bought Journalists: How Politicians, Intelligence, and High Finance Control German’s Mass Media.” Mr. Ulfkotte describes how he was first approached by German intelligence to become a journalist, and how his relationship with both German intelligence agencies and the CIA shaped the stories he would publish throughout his 30 year career.

How Much Greater Are You?

This morning I will be meeting up with an old friend. I will be in a duck blind with him sharing in the harvest of plentiful water fowl. I can't stop thinking about Love and how powerful it is. Michael thank you for always defaulting to Love in times good and bad.

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? - Matthew 6:26

My hope is that we do focus on Love because it is the only solution to combat hate. With addiction, hate, theft, and immorality at every turn, there is no other foundation to stand on than Love. Take a few moments today to just stop and look around. Give yourself two minutes to look at what we have!

Are we really saying goodbye to the ark?

I know we've all had a bit of cognitive dissonance about this. We don't want to think about it, and we continue on as if it won't happen.

I just want to say that you guys here have been an integral part of my life. Every person I speak to in the future will have the undeniable influence of the beautiful users of the Daily Paul. You have helped me find truth in an adverse world. What we've done here is nothing short of heroic.
