  • ℹ️ Description
Mosul, one of Iraq’s largest cities, was the place where so-called Islamic State declared its caliphate back in 2014. Now, after the Iraqi government has declared victory over IS -the group has also lost its last strongholds in Syria- the massive destruction over the campaign to liberate the city five months ago is in plain sight. Nafiseh Kohnavard from the BBC’s Persian Service has been covering the battle for Mosul and has been back to the city’s old town where life for ordinary civilians is anything but back to normal.

Britain and america should be ashamed of themselves and we need to start making amends by putting Tony Blair and George Bush in jail or at least tried at The Hauge.

Iraq wasn't amazing but from Iraqis I know who sought refuge in our countries from the devastation we caused only to be told they aren't welcome, they were living their lives quite comfortably.

US led coalition bombed them with 'Freedom and Democracy'. Same with Syria. Now Iran, Lebanon and Jordan are in the crosshair - thanks to axis of evil US/Israel/Saudi.

The Fake News BBC fails to mention yet again that it was Obama's American B-52 Bombers that committed most of this War Crime. Disgusting.

I have no hate against the immigrants in general, but if they are good people, they will go back and rebuild once there's peace.
