We know impeachment is a big news story and all, but maybe it’s time for a little bit of focus on WTF is going on in Iraq, ‘eh?

Iraq is literally BURNING LIKE HELL yet US media continue to focus on Ukraine/Impeachment bullshit out of proportion.

Maybe it is some time to give a break and focus what matters the most since what’s happening in Iraq is essentially an American mess?
