War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 10 hours ago
RT:* ‘Wild & overblown’: Lavrov blasts media hype over Trump Jr. meeting with Russian lawyer* Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says he was astonished to learn the US president’s son has been slammed for talking to a Russian lawyer. The minister has lampooned the accusations, saying they were “wild” and making a mountain out of a molehill. “I was amazed to find out that Trump’s son is accused of talking to her [Natalia Veselnitskaya].

Mosul: Another 'Mission Accomplished'

Daniel McAdams at 10 hours ago
From February to June, an estimated 5,800 civilians have been killed in Mosul by US coalition airstrikes, a significant escalation in civilian deaths over the previous US Administration. With Mosul now "liberated" by US and Iraqi military forces, there is virtually nothing left of the city. Now we are told that we have to spend more billions of dollars rebuilding the city that we just destroyed, and once again training new Iraqi military forces to make up for all those killed in this campaign. Does this sound like a sensible US foreign policy? Tune in to today's Liberty Report:
