Why Latin American leftists would love a President Trump | GlobalPost Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Why Latin American leftists would love a President Trump | GlobalPost: “When a guy like that comes along, it would be very bad for the United States, but Latin America is pretty independent, and, given the [provocative] message [of a Trump White House] for the progressive tendency in Latin America, this would be very positive.”

Correa’s remarks are just the latest indication that, were Trump to win the race for the White House next November, the bombastic real estate tycoon might quickly find his foreign policy hitting stiff resistance around the world.

Joe Wilson to Hillary Clinton in 2010: Baghdad “Has Been Bled to Death” Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Joe Wilson to Hillary Clinton in 2010: Baghdad “Has Been Bled to Death”: [theintercept.com] --He then described the racism he saw on display at the store on the American military base at the Baghdad airport:

The soldiers I saw on the base are not infused with the commitment to help Iraqis help themselves. I scoured the PX for t-shirts for my kids to memorialize my trip but was hard put to find any that were not horribly bellicose or racist in nature. Shirts with mushroom clouds conveyed the Baghdad weather as 32,000 degrees and partly cloudy. Others referred to Arabs as camel jockeys and those were the least offensive. Were I the commander those shirts would not be on the shelves as they convey adolescent macho Pastor Terry Jones attitudes. The service people don’t see themselves there to bring peace, light, joy or even democracy to Iraq. They are there to kill the “camel jockeys.”

He concluded, “I think we all need a slap in the face to remember what hell we have wrought in Iraq and what the consequences of stupid wars can be.” He explained: “War is not diplomacy by other means; it is upheaval with all the uncertainty that comes with that. Our military leaders are far too powerful and their playing politics has to be slowed if not stopped lest we continue to have to endure their rather open blackmailing of our political system.”

YPJ Soliders Fighting ISIS - Women Soldiers in a War Against ISIS Aboriginal News Group Newswire

YPJ Soliders Fighting ISIS - Women Soldiers in a War Against ISIS: -- [marieclaire.com] - In a recent BBC article, the YPJ, and their male counterpart unit, the YPG, were deemed "extraordinarily successful" in the battle to squash the growing ISIS militant force, despite limited means. The Washington Post has also weighed in on the importance and impact of the YPJ, suggesting the forces could be an effective ally to the West. Both the YPJ and YPG have also been credited with helping the U.S.-assisted effort to evacuate thousands of Yazidi refugees stranded on Mount Sinjar after ISIS invaded their towns.

Photographer Erin Trieb recently spent a week documenting members of the YPJ at several military posts in Northeastern Syria and along the Syrian-Kurdish border. She recalled to us an incident that occurred during her time there: "One morning, I heard two loud blasts, one followed by another. I asked my translator, Rama, what it was and she said, 'That's just the YPJ and ISIS saying good morning to each other.'"
