The REALITY OF WAR for the ‘boots on the ground': “You Grow Up Wanting to be Luke Skywalker, Then Realize You’ve Become a Stormtrooper for the Empire” Millennium Report
Update Sept. 16 - Global News Exclusive
Trudeau Liberals leave $372M meant to help veterans unspent since taking office
The news comes seven months after an Edmonton town hall at which Trudeau publicly admonished some veterans groups fighting the government for improved benefits, saying they were “asking for more than we are able to give right now.”

"Diversity Goals" or a shortage of willing dupes?

Why? Because Iraq "needs" their assistance.
As if the Iraqis actually have a choice now that the West has destroyed everything but the coveted oilfields.
Here's Iraq's real story:
So who benefits from the oil profits? If you have to ask you've been in a coma. It's also the answer to why Iran is vilified; Iran has used its oil profits to improve the lives of its citizens -- but the US has opted to put the kibosh on that, and Bloomberg says there's little China can do to help:
Guess who had and still has an interest in controlling Iran's oil profits: Israel, Saudi Arabia, the US.
The same was inflicted on Iraq, and the Iraqi people became dependent on the UN Oil for Food program, which soon became a feeding trough for the so-called good guys in the UN.
It's pretty common knowledge now that Daesh, or whatever they choose to call it, is funded by the very entities claiming to be fighting it. Here's something you may consider boycotting:
US, European consumers inadvertently helping fund Daesh in Afghanistan by buying baby powder: report
Canada pretends it's training and supporting Iraqis so that it can stay in the game with the bigger boys, and hoping the US will buy the goop they're dredging up out of the tar sands, while playfighting with the Saudis, yet hoping we can still sell them war vehicles.
Who could have imagined that the "Boyfriend" has an evil twin?
It's all very complicated, like a movie plot that nobody gets until the last horrible second.
Here's what our young men and women need to be doing: singing in the streets -- like in the good old days when the "Left" actually protested against war: "I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield down by the riverside ... Ain't gonna study war no more"
