I think Iraq and Chile are near civil war.

Not looking good in either country. The protests are growing and state sanctioned violence against them is escalating.

Meanwhile, our news is Trump TV across the board.

1. More than 260 killed in Iraq

since October 1.

Protesters, mostly unemployed youths, blame a political elite that has ruled Iraq since the toppling of Saddam Hussein in 2003, and demand a complete overhaul of the political system.

3. Saudis and Turks may be destabilizing Iraq

Current government is pro-Iranian and destabilizing trouble in Iraq would give an excuse for Erdogan to invade the Kurdish areas of Iraq.

5. Can you imagine the PDB for these two items?

It would have to be on sparate days because two nations each on the brink of civil war is too much for trump to think about.
