  • This would then be a legit indictable criminal enterprise. Do not negotiate with terrorists. The Iranian's are contracted from someone with motive, then.

  • I like Utube. But I can't stand Facebook. I signed off as soon as I found out that they were responsible for distribution of the false propaganda during the 2016 election, the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and the fact that Mark Zuckerberg doesn't understand why he is responsible. He owns a media distribution platform, just like, CBS, NBC, or a radio station. He should be liable for the distribution of slanderous materials. I lost some friends because of Facebook. As a result, I am not going to have any friends, or share any thing with anyone, on any other social media outlet. I will comment, just so I can document how I feel, and what my point of view is on Issues and content. I will never go back on Facebook. I sincerely hope that Utube does not disappoint me in the same way. I hope that all advertising is screened, and Soviet Union style propaganda, is not distributed on this platform. So far, everything is going well. I don't like lies. It is a waste of time to listen to them.
