Iran news: Donald Trump says US will "embrace peace with all who seek it"

Thank Allah (or Trump, whatever floats your boat) that there is no open war happening with Iran. They threaded the needle & escaped the neocon trap. Side note: in this speech if you swap out "Iran" with "the United States" it's more accurate.

Did Tim Pool tell you that?

That clown would have told you Iraq was building WMDs & had links to al Qaeda too, if it meant more clicks. Get better sources.

Its all over the news! Why do you think I get all my information from Tim Pool? Yes I post some of his videos but its becuase sometimes he is the only one talking about certain things or he does get it right most of the time. What do you get your news from al jazeera??? The Evening Standard looks like a tabloid asswipe celebrity gossip paper and you want to point your finger at me and Tim Pool! LOL GTFO!

News sources can be useful but you have to dig deeper on controversial issues, look at the facts & use your own brain. The Middle East took me years to get my head around & I still have a lot to learn. It's a dynamic web of alliances, nothing like the binary politics you might be used to.

 

Al Jazeera for eg. is Qatari state media & Qatar is a rival to Iran & hosts the US' largest military presence in the region. AJ is generally okay by Western standards but bear in mind that Qatar funds Wahhabi terrorists whose #1 goal is to hoist their flag in Tehran.

 

Whether he quotes The Evening Standard, MSNBC, Fox News or BBC, it doesn't really matter. You either know the claim is true/false or you don't really know anything.

AND so what the fuck is wrong with Tim Pool??? He sifted through all the information and filtered the bullshit so I didnt have to, then I looked it up myself. I found the original photos to insure they were from the aircraft that went down. There is nothing in that video I posted with Tim Pool that is a lie. He does a WAY better job of telling you when he is injected his opinion and when he is just presenting facts. Its refreshing to have alternative media other then the lamestream media injecting their bias opinions and slants on everything. I got some news tickers, I got my local news stations, I go to Foxnews, CNN, WAPO, BBC and NYTimes just to skim the headlines and see what everyone is talking about but if I want commentary or anything further I'll chose the Jimmy Dore Show, Tim Pool, or the Youtube Jesus to get a little more information on something then I'll scour the internet myself for more intel if needed.

If you enjoy his commentary that's fine but he's not worth listening to outside of culture war clickbait & only then if you want to have your right wing bone tickled.

There aren't many good sources I can recommend you because you like entertainment by the sounds & you're also anti-leftie. I think you'll like The Duran though, if you give them a chance. If you can handle Jimmy Dore's progressive bias I think you might like Kim Iverson

 

I don't look at infotainment so you might find my shit a bit boring. You should know that for anything involving other countries, young infotainers like Styx or Pool are worse than watching nothing. They'll just be repeating some bullshit from US media & giving an opinion about it. You're better off looking at the Tweets from foreign ministers & making your own mind up about what's going down.

 

The photos you showed have already been debunked by Bellingcat of all people. Bellingcat are gonna go ham on trying to spin this into an Iranian AA missile as the cause but were quick to point out that those photos only show dots consistent with mud splatters, not shrapnel.

On a daily basis I am listening to NPR on the radio, when Im cooking, cleaning, driving, etc... They are hugely biased for the left and suffer from OrangeManBad syndrome but its better then listening to the same shitty songs over and over again. I forgot to type that into my post above. With knowledge and experience you know how to call bullshit when you see or hear it and when to filter it!

Try The Duran (link above) or Scott Horton - he interviews some really smart people sometimes. He's anti-war libertarian. Checkout the one from whistleblower John Kiriakou [link], it describes the clusterfuck that the movie The Report was based on - the FBI interrogation of Abu Zubaydah & how the CIA came in & fucked it all up. It's pretty interesting.

 

Patrick Cockburn has a new interview on there about Soleimani. Cockburn is the most legit Western journo re: Iraq. There are less than 5 journalists in the world who I think are legit & he's one of them. [link]

"The photos you showed have already been debunked by Bellingcat of all people." Where are you getting this from? I've been reading their twitter and I cant find anything about what you claim. Someone said be careful about the pictures becuase SOME of the holes appear to maybe rocks or debris. Bellengcat DID say they need more intel and pictures about the missile cone that was found near the crash site and urged cation but people have been posting more picture that DOES seem to confirm the missile cone WAS indeed found near the crash site.

The problem here is, you have been goaded by the Tim Pool comment. Ignore state CBS, NBC and CNN, you know the place they all get their news from. Still looking for a Fox new special alert.
