For those deluded/devout partisan souls who see Donald Trump as a corruption fighter, maybe Thanksgiving in Iraq will change your minds? Iraqis Rise Up Against 16 Years of ‘Made in the USA’ Corruption "As Americans sat down to Thanksgiving dinner, Iraqis were mourning 40 protesters killed by police and soldiers on Thursday in Baghdad, Najaf and Nasiriyah. "Nearly 400 protesters have been killed since hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets at the beginning of October.

"Western reporting conveniently casts Iran as the dominant foreign player in Iraq today. "But while Iran has gained enormous influence and is one of the targets of the protests, most of the people ruling Iraq today are still the former exiles that the U.S. flew in with its occupation forces in 2003, 'coming to Iraq with empty pockets to fill' as a taxi-driver in Baghdad told a Western reporter at the time.
