It was
2:09 a.m. in Kunduz, Afghanistan, on Oct. 3,
2015, when Lajos Jecs was woken from his sleep
by a loud explosion. It was the first in a
series of bombs a US plane was dropping on the
hospital where he worked.
Jecs, a
nurse from Hungary with Doctors
Without Borders
 (MSF), had been living and
working at the MSF trauma center in Kunduz for
close to five months. The fighting around the
health care facility had been growing worse in
the past few days. It was so bad that Jecs and
his international colleagues had been unable to
leave the hospital compound. They’d been
sleeping in makeshift quarters in the hospital’s
safe room. 
It was in
the safe room, a building separated from the
main hospital, that Jecs went to sleep at about
10 p.m. on Oct. 2. Four hours later, he was
startled awake. He had heard bombs in Kunduz
before, but never this close. The office was
rattling and he could hear dirt and debris from
the explosions hitting the walls. Jecs took
shelter in his room and began trying to call his
co-workers in the hospital. None of them picked
up, except for one colleague who yelled for help
before hanging up. 
Some 20 to
30 minutes into the bombing Jecs heard a voice
call his name from outside the safe room. When
he opened the door he saw one of his
Afghan colleagues standing there, covered in
blood and with just one arm.  
“[That’s]
when I realized actually that now we are really,
really in danger,” Jecs says. He pulled his
colleague into the room and started wishing for
the end to come quickly. “Let’s have one bomb
here and just finish with it,” he thought.....

Only four days
after his public defense of torture and “a hell of a
lot worse” in US military-intelligence
interrogations, billionaire Donald Trump added
assassination to his foreign policy arsenal as well.
Speaking Wednesday on the “CBS This Morning”
program, Trump said that his solution to the US
conflict with North Korea over its nuclear weapons
program would be to eliminate North Korean leader
Kim Jong-un.


“I would
get China to make that guy disappear in one form or
another very quickly,” Trump told interviewer Norah
O’Donnell. When she followed up by asking if that
meant having Kim Jong-un assassinated, Trump
replied, “Well, I’…

U.S. Congresswoman Introduces Bill to Stop
“illegal” War on Assad

- Last month, US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard went on CNN and laid
bare Washington’s Syria strategy.


In a remarkably candid interview with Wolf
Blitzer, Gabbard calls Washington’s
effort to oust Assad “counterproductive” and “illegal” before taking
it a step further and accusing the CIA of arming the very same
terrorists who The White House insists are “sworn enemies.” 



In short, Gabbard all but tells the American
public that the government is lying to them and may end up
inadvertently starting “World War III.”
