Submissions strategies --

Only if you are a writer, and write all the time, and interested in getting published.

If you never write anything, or you only write for radio in Burmese, no point, right?

Also if like Emily Dickensen you write for the drawer.  Or if you've written something already, and gotten it published, and that's yr life's work, that's that.  There are people like that, bc I talked to them about writing another book, and they just shook their heads.


the final nail in T's coffin has finally arrived--Pete Souza has spoken

Wapo--Al-Baghdadi raid--more detail

Best piece yet on Al-Baghdadi raid--hydra

from Twitter--

The Kurds continued to help the C.I.A. nail Baghdadi even as they scrambled to survive in the wake of Trump's betrayal. A U.S. official told the NYT that Syrian and Iraqi Kurds "provided more intelligence for the raid than any single country."

Complete transcript of trump announcing al Baghdadi death--

The thing is--

he set it up so Turkey invaded Kurd lands and Kurds were killed and had to flee.

Prisoners (ISIS) and families went free.  Turkey has now invaded former free Kurdistan that existed for 5 years.

US has removed forces protecting Kurds and re-assigned them to Syria oil fields.  They have not been brought home.

Nancy Pelosi  "Is Iraq home?"

This sounds like trump projecting his own fears, besides, everyone should know that these terrorist groups are set up as separate cells, so knocking out leader, whether Bin Ladin or al Baghdadi has little effect.

Trump could not even spell al Qaeda in previous tweets.

Stay tuned.
