Good morning!

International Politics

Overall

– Tony Blair: Even without the non-existent weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, I would have invaded it regardless; You heard it here folks! Let’s see what Bush and co. say about this.

– Even looking at the MQ9 Reaper, a drone, gives an idea on how much drone strikes are valued by the U.S.

– Three alleged Russian spies were arrested in New York by federal authorities

Middle East

– After refusing to serve the Israeli military due to abuses against Palestinians, 43 Israelis were dismissed by the government; For heaven’s sake, they are not “alleged” Al-Monitor.

– Due to security concerns, the U.S. embassy in Yemen will be closed until the government decides to open it up again

– Great to hear Kurdish forces were able to drive out Islamic State militants from towns in Syria

– Eight people were killed and 20 people were wounded by bombings in Iraq
