As you recall or don’t recall, the fighting red headed man from New York had an opportunity to display his gun toting ability during the Vietnam war, but he had more important things to do -like making money. Anyway, Donald is now the fighting hero of the NRA because he not only wants guns in the hands of every single American, but he sure wants them in schools. Of course, at times, when he discuses any topic his fast moving mind sort of goes in several directions.
“I don’t want to have guns in the classrooms, although in some cases teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly. The problem with gun free zones is like offering candy to bad people. They have gun free zones and they go in them with guns blazing.
Donald, some facts: Public Schools are the safest place for children, particularly, those living in urban poverty areas. THERE HAS NOT BEEN A SINGLE MASS SHOOTING IN AN URBAN SCHOOL DURING THE ENTIRE 20TH CENTURY! Every mass shooting has occurred in middle class white neighborhoods!

Well, it was simply a matter of time before the so-called Iraq Army decided to actually go to war against ISIS. In most prior battles the Iraq army went to fight having more soldiers,more air planes,more tanks, more artillery, but just the sight of an opposing army which had weapons to fire made the Iraq soldiers decide that flight rather than fight was the best way to handle a situation that could lead one to get killed. After months of preparation, after months of being trained, of months in which Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi urged them to move out and move on the ISIS held city of Fallujah, these troops actually DID move out of the base.
The real test of the Iraq army comes when ISIS militants begin to fire their weapons. The Iraq army is tough as hell as long as no one fires bullets at them, but when the bullets fly, so do their feet. Reality, is failure of any Iraq government to demonstrate commitment to honesty, and respect for the lives of Sunni citizens. Why fight for crooks is the real question?

The good news from Iraq these days is that one knows the day before what will be the news from Iraq tomorrow. A majority of people in Iraq are Shiites and a minority are Sunni Muslims. Under Saddam Hussein, the Sunnis ran Iraq. Now, that he is gone, Shiites are making up for lost time with discrimination against Sunnis, including arresting Sunni political leaders. So, one can daily expect the following:
Yesterday in Baghdad, 67 dead and 87 wounded in a Shiite marketplace. Later in the day, a suicide bomber wearing a vest blew himself up and murdered 17 Shiites and wounded a few dozen. We can expect tomorrow that suicide bomber will blow himself up in a Sunni marketplace area.
And, so on, and so on, and so on. Will this madness ever end?
