The Battle For Mosul -- News Updates November 7, 2016

BBC: Battle for Mosul: The story so far

A long-awaited military offensive to reclaim the northern Iraqi city Mosul from so-called Islamic State (IS) is under way, forcing thousands of Iraqis to flee their homes.

About 50,000 Iraqi security forces, Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, Sunni Muslim Arab tribesmen and Shia Muslim militiamen, assisted by US-led coalition warplanes and military advisers, are involved in the operation, launched on 17 October, more than two years after jihadists overran the city before seizing control of much of northern and western Iraq.

You can find real news on most news networks Problem is you have to sort through it to see if it is a fabrication made from whole cloth or how it is bent or shaded.

'They've had them to dinner. They've been invited to Podesta's house. These are the people who, if we need to get a narrative established about Trump or about Hillary, these people will do it for us. "Dan Balz," Washington Post. "Wolf Blitzer," CNN. '

There is a reason CNN is known as the

Clinton News Network
or the
Communist News Network.

Wikileaks has shown us what we all suspected.

On a side note I have not like that POS Wolf Blitzer since the 1st Gulf War.

A quarter of a century later Wolf is still showing what a partisan hack he is.

Will it cut ties with Wolf Blitzed?

JabberJay mention CNN as his news source.

I merely mentioned that CNN is a slanted partisan news source that has been caught red handed shading the news.

Truth? Much.

Word Salad? Not so much
