Trump’s air force attacks Iraq, Syria, Somalia

This 11 April 2017 video from the USA says about itself:

Does President Trump stand to personally profit off the wars he is escalating in Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Somalia and beyond? That’s the question many are asking, after it emerged that Trump has personally invested in Raytheon, the military contractor who makes the Tomahawk missiles used in the U.S. strike on a Syrian airbase last week. Raytheon’s stocks briefly surged after the attack. Overall, the stocks of defense contractors, such as Boeing and General Dynamics, have increased since Trump’s election, further fueled by his promise of a “historic” 10 percent increase in U.S. military spending. For more, we speak with William Hartung, director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy. His latest book is “Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex.”

Eg, Dutch daily Trouw reports today that on 29 December 2019, United States F-15 warplanes attacked Iraq, Syria and Somalia.

The attacks in Iraq and Syria were against Kata’ib Hezbollah, an Iraqi Shiite militia which had fought against ISIS; and was accused by the United States Trump administration of recently killing a United States mercenary contractor at a United States military base in Iraq. The 29 December attacks on Syria and Iraq killed at least 25 people and injured 55. Trump’s Secretary of War ‘Defence’ Esper said that he did not exclude that there would be more attacks.

Besides the three attacks in Iraq and two in Syria, Donald Trump’s Pentagon yesterday bombed Somalia, killing at least four people.
