The crimes of the empire are real, predictable, and with precedents.
Unbelievable, blatant lies:
“The conflict began when Russia annexed Crimea in 2014,”
NO, Washington Post, it most certainly did not. You missed the illegal Washington/EU sponsored coup of January and February of 2014. That’s quite a deliberate omission, making you, clearly, FAKE NEWS again.
The elected President of Ukraine was violently overthrown by extreme right fascist parties backed by Victoria Nuland and Obama. The USA supported neo-nazis, and the people of the eastern Ukraine rejected their foreign-sponsored debacle. THAT is when the “conflict began.”
Fucking left echo chamber is cackling over Michael Flynn. What did he do exactly? He talked with the Russian ambassador… diplomacy. That is not to be tolerated.

Now it’s Mexico.
“You have a bunch of bad hombres down there,” Trump told Pena Nieto, according to the excerpt given to AP. “You aren’t doing enough to stop them. I think your military is scared. Our military isn’t, so I just might send them down to take care of it.”
Previously his administration has threatened China and Iran, plus it has launched a commando attack in Yemen that killed dozens.
It is not immediately clear if President Obama authorized the strike in Syria. The official said the U.S. military is authorized to conduct counter-terrorism missions against Al Qaeda anytime.

The US Air Force conducted a second “major strike” in consecutive days killing over 100 Al Qaeda fighters at a training camp in northern Syria, a defense official with knowledge of the strike told a handful of reporters at the Pentagon on Friday.
A single U.S. Air Force B-52 bomber and an undisclosed number of drones dropped 14 precision-guided bombs at noon eastern time Thursday on an Al Qaeda “basic training” camp in Syria west of the city of Aleppo near the border with Turkey, according to the official.
“This was core Al Qaeda” said the official describing the fighters.
