The blast is the latest in a series of explosions that have targeted US-led coalition logistical convoys in Iraq over the past several months.
A possible roadside bomb blast has ripped through a US military logistics convoy’s route in the central Iraqi province of Babil, Iran’s MEHR news agency cited unnamed sources as saying on Tuesday.
There was no immediate word on casualties due the explosion. The latter is the most recent in a spate of such attacks staged in Iraq in the past few months. No group has claimed responsibility for the blast.
In early February, a logistical convoy carrying supplies for the US-led coalition in Iraq was hit in an improvised explosive device (IED) attack about 80 kilometres south of the capital Baghdad.
The bomb was reportedly detonated on a road in the area of al-Musayyib, a Shia-majority town that witnessed heavy fighting between US forces and local militias in the aftermath of the 2003 US invasion of Iraq.
The explosions come amid reports that the Biden administration might halt plans for future US troop reductions in conflict zones over concerns that the remaining numbers may be insufficient to engage in “counter-terrorism” operations or train local forces.
Officially, the Pentagon says that the US administration has yet to decide on its stance in Iraq even though Washington earlier announced a “force posture review” of the “US military footprint, resources, strategy, and missions” worldwide.

Last month, the military news website Defence One referred to a recent statement by Deputy US Ambassador to the UN Richard Mills that apparently indicates the Biden administration’s unwillingness to withdraw US troops from Iraq.
“Among its top priorities, the United States will seek to help Iraq assert its sovereignty in the face of enemies, at home and abroad, by preventing an ISIS [Daesh*] resurgence and working toward Iraq’s stability. The United States will remain a steady, reliable partner for Iraq, and for the Iraqi people today and in the future”, Mills told a UN Security Council meeting earlier in February.
THEIR MOTHER WAS A SLUT WHO COULD NOT KEEP HER UNMENTIONABLES UP WHEN HER HUSBAND WAS AWAY.
EVERY ENGLISH KING, EVERY BRITISH MONARCH AFTER THEM IS A FAKE ILLEGITIMATE KING/QUEEN /MONARCH.
THIS BUNCH ARE JUST ACTORS, FAKES.
AND HARRY IS THE ILLEGITIMATE SON OF A BRITISH ARMY OFFICER, NOT THE PEDO NO CHIN CHARLIE.
OLE FAKE “prince” Harry and his bimbo should return to England, they are not needed or wanted in America.
The Ole Dog!
JUST when you thought Harry and Meghan couldn’t out- parody themselves . . . along comes Oprah.
I’m not sure what grates the most.
The fact that since harrumphing away from the Royal Family, citing a need for greater privacy, they’ve signed deals with Netflix and Spotify, given self-important weekly Zooms (from their very private own front room) or, now, given a warts ’n’ all interview to the planet’s most famous celebrity interviewer.
Despite their rather grand designs to end global poverty, is it not a bit ironic that Harry should give his first interview to multi-millionaire diet company ambassador James Corden? A man literally being paid to eat less.
Anyway. While Harry came across as pretty likeable in his open-top bus chat, we do not know what percentage of monies made by the couple post-Megxit have been distributed to the needy.
Like her celebrity pals, Oprah preaches philanthropy and wellness to her millions of followers.
She also practises what she preaches, donating millions to charities across the world, including the Clinton Foundation, the Born This Way Foundation and Women For Women International.
This latest televised chat wasn’t a Comic Relief endeavour. This was purely about self-advancement.
I really don’t care that the self-satisfied trio, sitting within the sun-dappled grounds of a mutual pal’s sprawling mansion, are worth a combined £1.9billion and use private jets like you and I use the Northern Line.

REAL TEXICANS, NOT Washington DC CITIZENS OCCUPYING TEXAS, WILL NEED THAT LOOT TO REBUILD FROM THE 3ed WORLD $#IT HOLE THE OCCUPATION HAS LEFT TEXAS.
The Ole Texican Dog!
Secession is a four-letter word for the millions of Americans who have gone through the conventional educational pipeline that teaches them that the American state is indivisible and sacrosanct.
However, intellectually honest historians whose minds haven’t been warped by educational institutions know better than to dismiss secessionism as some nefarious activity that only treasonous Southerners of the Confederacy are capable of engaging in.
For all intents and purposes, the founding generation was secessionist. When they signed on to the Declaration of Independence, those who fomented the American Revolution were committed to liberating themselves from the grasp of the British Empire. Quite arguably the most important act of secession in human history, the revolutionaries’ successful efforts to secede from British rule had the whole world awestruck.
More importantly, it cemented the idea of political separation in the American political consciousness. Before becoming a state, Vermont went the extra mile after the thirteen colonies declared their independence, breaking free from New York and Great Britain and establishing itself as an independent republic in 1777. It would remain that way until 1791, when it ratified the US Constitution and joined the union.
Even during the ratification of the Constitution, many states feared the idea of a government that would become excessively centralized. So they had secessionist backup plans in case things got out of hand. In the Politically Incorrect Guide to American History, Tom Woods touched on how the New York, Rhode Island, and Virginia “explicitly reserved during the ratification of the Constitution the right to withdraw from the Union should it become oppressive.”
Secession Attempts in the Early Days of the American Republic
Americans’ secessionist streak did not go away so easily after they extricated themselves from the dominion of their British overlords.
Secessionist talks grew stronger during the presidency of Thomas Jefferson. The Federalist Party, based in New England, was dismayed with having Jefferson as president and even more concerned about the ascendant Democratic-Republican Party. They viewed Jeffersonian Democrats as a political force that could potentially displace them thanks to the electoral advantages the Democratic-Republicans enjoyed in the South and the newly incorporated Western states.
Federalist apprehensions became even more palpable during James Madison’s presidency, when the US locked horns with the British Empire in the War of 1812. Many Northerners wanted to maintain peaceful relations with their British cousins and were not keen on bellicosity. As a consequence, New England members of the Federalist Party gathered during the Hartford Convention in 1814 to discuss the New England states’ relationship with the federal government, which sparked nationwide fears of secessionism in New England.
Although it did not materialize into a coherent separatist movement, the Hartford Convention did lead to the downfall of the Federalist Party due to their perception as engaging in treasonous behavior in the eyes of the Americans who were eager to resist the British invasion. Nevertheless, the Hartford Convention sowed the seeds for future secessionist movements.
How Secession Led to the Creation of Republic of Texas
Following its independence from Spain in 1821, Mexico was left with the task of building an independent nation. In contrast to Mexico proper, Mexican Texas was frontier territory and not particularly attractive to Mexicans, who found better opportunities in Mexico’s central regions. Settlements in San Antonio and Nacogdoches served as forward posts for the Spanish Empire, but there was no concerted effort to settle the region, which remained sparsely populated until the 1820s.
To populate the area, Mexican authorities came up with a land grant system to attract settlers (empresarios) to Mexican Texas. Many enterprising frontiersmen in the United States were in search of adventure and the prospect of land grants in Texas was tantalizing. For many of these explorers, settling down in Texas represented a fresh start.
The catch to the land grant program was that American migrants had to become Mexican citizens, follow Mexican laws, nominally accept the Catholic faith, and learn Spanish. American settlers started pouring into Mexican Texas, and by the mid-1830s, they significantly outnumbered the Mexican citizens there. The American settlers forged a distinct identity that did not align with the political desires of Mexican authorities, who had other plans in mind for Texas.
Tensions came to a head after General Antonio López de Santa Anna became president of Mexico and committed himself to centralizing the Mexican state. Mexico fell down the path of dictatorship after Santa Anna suspended the Mexican Constitution and declared himself dictator in 1834. Shortly thereafter, Santa Anna used the Mexican army to clamp down on Texas, which had enjoyed a quasi-autonomous status, to see through his centralist vision for Mexico. The Mexican strongman’s actions generated significant backlash from the Anglos and even some Mexicans (Tejanos) residing in Texas.
Texas had its Lexington moment on October 2, 1835, when Texans took up arms against a Mexican military detachment in the settlement of Gonzales, Texas. The Battle of Gonzales immortalized the Come and Take It flag that was flown before the battle, where Texans dared Mexican forces under the command of Colonel Domingo de Ugartechea to seize a cannon in the settlement’s possession. The Texans compelled the Mexican forces to retreat, marking the beginning of the Texas Revolution.
With the adoption of the Texas Declaration of Independence on March 2, 1836, the Texans explicitly laid out their decision to break free from Mexico. They cited Santa Anna’s actions to transform Mexico’s federal republic into a centralized military dictatorship and the reneging on guarantees to protect a number of their constitutional liberties (the right to bear arms, trial by jury, and freedom of religion) as some of the principal reasons for their decision to revolt. Moreover, separatist Anglo Texans enjoyed support from Americans in Congress who were more than happy to encourage the partition of Mexico into smaller pieces.
The Texas Revolution came to a decisive conclusion at the Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836, after the Texan army captured Santa Anna and compelled him to sue for peace. Although Santa Anna returned to Mexico unharmed, the Mexican Congress did not ratify a treaty to recognize the new Republic of Texas, but several countries such as Britain, France, and the United States recognized the independent republic. Texas would later be annexed by the United States, in 1845.
Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick previously issued a Monday statement calling for the resignations of Texas Public Utility Commission (PUC) Chair DeAnn Walker and Electric Reliability Council of Texas CEO Bill Magness over their “lack of adequate preparation” prior to the recent bouts of extreme winter weather in Texas.
Within hours of the lieutenant governor’s request, Walker issued a letter to Texas Governor Greg Abbott announcing her immediate resignation from Texas’ PUC, the agency responsible for regulating the state’s electric, telecommunication, water and sewage utilities.
“The State of Texas was devastated by a tremendous and horrific event. The events that [led] to the electric grid’s failure was not caused by any one individual or group,” she said, referring to the widespread electrical outages that plagued the majority of the state during, and after the week of February 14.
“The interests of many people and companies contributed to the situation we faced in the devastating storm,” Walker wrote.
She urged other groups, like “gas companies, the Railroad Commission [and] the electric generators,” to come forward and accept responsibility for their alleged roles in amplifying the danger of the Valentine’s Day weekend storm.
“With devoted faith, I know that God will take care of me during these difficult times,” she concluded.
At least 40 individuals died as a result of the recent wave of winter weather and extremely low temperatures in Texas, according to the Associated Press.
“Both the PUC Chair and the ERCOT CEO said they were prepared the day before the storm hit in full force, but obviously they were not,” Patrick remarked, following a week of officials testifying before state lawmaking committees.
During her testimony, Walker was notably silent when asked by Texas State Rep. Rafael Anchía, a Democrat, whether she believes the public is owed an apology from the PUC.
“After two days of testimony, it is clear to me that there was a dereliction of duty and that the people of Texas deserve nothing less than for Commissioner Walker to resign immediately,” Anchía said in a Friday statement.
“Her inability to even muster an apology to Texans who endured freezing temperatures without heat or power and resulted in loss of life is inexcusable.”
