    I see Trump is looking into making bribery great again, by making it no longer illegal.

    I agree with all but the severance package. They should get nothing.

    L’Etat, c’est moi.

    The whole nonsense in the British press is dripping with irony and hypocrisy.

    Many of the same commentators demeaning Meghan and accusing her of manipulating Harry were responsible for I) his mother being killed and Ii) hacking his phone and making private voicemails public record for no good reason. They rip into her as selfish for wanting a personal life, whilst giving Prince Andrew a pass for being an all but indicted paedophile. They complain about the cost they are to the state but then demand half a million pounds be spent on making Big Ben bong for Brexit.

    I’m a mild Republican, if they want out of the family business, let them. Give them a nice severance package and be done with it.

    I suggested sending them to Grise Fiord, a community of about 120 mostly Inuit in the high arctic. It is the northernmost community in Canada, accessible only by plane, and only for a few months per year. It takes at least 3 connecting flights, and over 24 hours to reach there from 'southern' Canada. There are no bars or hotels or restaurants. The average temperature (year round) is -14 C. If photographers want to camp out on their doorstep in Grise Fiord, they would become paparazzicles...

    Yeah, coming to America will help them avoid the paparazzi.
    Maybe they should move to Hollywood. They'll be safe there.

    Prince Harry and his family want to quit the Royals, and possibly move to North America!

    I think Canada should give Harry and Meghan a rent-free official residence in Grise Fiord, our northern most hamlet. What better way to assert sovereignty over the high arctic than with a sovereign? And they can avoid the paparazzi!

    And drive them closer to IRAN. Great thinking. At least back in Saddam's day they acted as checks on each other.

    Trump threatens Iraq with sanctions if US troops are expelled

    President Trump has threatened severe sanctions against Iraq after its parliament called on US troops to leave the country.

    "We have a very extraordinarily expensive air base that's there. It cost billions of dollars to build. We're not leaving unless they pay us back for it," he told reporters.

    Tensions are high after the US assassinated Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Baghdad last week.

    Iran has vowed "severe revenge".

    Soleimani, 62, spearheaded Iranian military operations in the Middle East, and was regarded as a terrorist by the US.

    The general's remains have now returned to his home country, where mourners packed the streets of Tehran early on Monday.The new head of Iran's Quds force - which Soleimani led - has vowed to expel the US from the Middle East.

    "We promise to continue martyr Soleimani's path with the same force... and the only compensation for us would be to remove America from the region," state radio quoted Esmail Qaani as saying.

    The strike that killed Soleimani also claimed the life of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, a top Iraqi military figure who commanded the Iranian-backed Kataib Hezbollah group.

    What did Trump threaten Iraq with?
    Speaking from the presidential plane, Mr Trump said that if Iraq asked US forces to depart on an unfriendly basis, "we will charge them sanctions like they've never seen before, ever. It'll make Iranian sanctions look somewhat tame."

    Some 5,000 US soldiers are in Iraq as part of the international coalition against the Islamic State (IS) group.

    On Sunday, the coalition paused its operations against IS in Iraq, and Iraqi MPs passed a non-binding resolution calling for foreign troops to leave.The resolution was pushed through by the parliament's Shia Muslim bloc - which is close to Iran.
