#4  I was reading about Veronica Lake at wiki. Lake was born Constance Frances Marie Ockelman. She was married and divorced 3 times. She had 4 children, one a boy who died shortly after birth after Lake fell over a lighting cable at the studio during her pregnancy. She acquired a taste for alcohol; apparently with some zeal as she later died from cirrhosis of the liver, acute hepatitis and acute kidney injury as a result at age 50. During her life, she had things together enough to get a pilot's license.

Afghanistan
Taliban commander among 6 killed as Afghan forces thwart Taliban attack in Zabul
[KhaamaPress] The Afghan forces thwarted Death Eaters bid to launch an attack on security posts in southern Zabul province and killed six Talibs during the operation.

The Ministry of Defense in a statement said the Talibs were looking to attack the security posts in Kajak Khel Village of Shahjoi district.

However,
a poor excuse is better than no excuse at all...
the Afghan forces thwarted the plan by launching an operation and killed six Talibs including one of their commanders Hayatullah.

The statement further added that the security forces also arrested one of the commanders of Taliban
...Arabic for students...
during the operation.

The security forces also confiscated some weapons and munitions during the same operation, the Ministry of Defense added.

The Taliban group has not commented in this regard so far.

Half-Ton of African Khat Seized at U.S. Port of Entry
[BREITBART] U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized more than a half-ton of Nigerian khat, a Schedule 1 stimulant, from two flights on April 1. Officials said it is the second seizure of the drug in two weeks. One of the shipments represents the second-largest seizure of khat in the port’s history.CBP officials said the seizure of 1,138 pounds of Nigerian khat a week ago was no April Fools Day joke. Dulles Field Office offers inspected two shipments that were listed as tea on the flight manifests at Washington Dulles International Airport. A U.S. Department of Agriculture botanist assisted the officers and identified the leaves as Catha Edulis, commonly known as khat, according to CBP officials.

Bomb blast kills, injures four farmers in Diyala
[THEBAGHDADPOST] At least two farmers were killed and two others were maimed on Thursday after an bomb went off on a farmland outside Jalawla district of Khanaqin, north of Diyala province.

Head of the local administration of Jalawla confirmed the report to the Baghdad Post and said that the blast was in Um Hunta (Sheikh Bawa) village.

Security forces were dispatched to the area and an investigation is underway now, he added.

Although no claims of responsibility have been made, the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(IS) is suspected for the bombing as the group has significantly increased its activities in the areas disputed between the Kurdistan Region and the government of Iraq.

Iraq names its third prime minister in 10 weeks
[THEBAGHDADPOST] Iraq’s president named intelligence chief Mustafa al-Kadhimi as prime minister-designate on Thursday, the third person tapped to lead the country in just 10 weeks as it struggles to replace a government that fell last year after months of deadly protests.

Kadhimi was nominated by President Barham Salih, state television
... and if you can't believe state television who can you believe?
reported, shortly after the previous designated prime minister, Adnan al-Zurfi, announced he was withdrawing having failed to secure enough support to pass a government.

Iraq, exhausted by decades of sanctions, war and political corruption now faces economic ruin, social unrest and a growing outbreak of the new coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)
...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...
, all of which it must face with only a caretaker cabinet.

Adel Abdul Mahdi, who resigned under pressure from anti-government protests in November, still heads the government as caretaker prime minister. Salih’s first choice to replace him, Mohammed Allawi, withdrew on March 1 after four fruitless weeks trying to gain support.

Like Salih’s previous choices to replace Abdul Mahdi, Kadhimi is seen as a political independent, who will have to amass support from the powerful sectarian parties that dominate Iraq’s legislature to approve a cabinet within a month.

The former journalist, who wrote against dictator Saddam Hussein from exile in Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
and Britannia, returned after the U.S. invasion in 2003. He has held his role heading intelligence since 2016.

"I will work tirelessly to to present Iraqis with a program and cabinet that will work to serve them, protect their rights and take Iraq towards a prosperous future," Kadhimi wrote on Twitter.

Zurfi had been rejected immediately by parties allied with Iran who viewed him as a threat to their political and economic power in Iraq, calling him an "American joker" for his ties with the U.S.-backed authorities that ruled Iraq after the 2003 invasion. Thursday marked the 17th anniversary of the day that U.S.-led troops occupied Baghdad.

Zurfi had signalled he would check the power of Iran-aligned militias in Iraq. Kurdish parties finally decided on Wednesday not to back Zurfi, sealing his fate.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Hamas arrests Gaza peace activists after Zoom video call with Israelis
[IsraelTimes] Hamas, one of the armed feet of the Moslem Brüderbund millipede,-run security forces have arrested several peace activists in the Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
Strip on treason charges after they took part in a web conference with Israeli activists, officials said Thursday.

The Hamas-run Interior Ministry said the activists were accused of "holding a normalization activity with the Israeli occupation."

"Holding any activity or contact with the Israeli occupation under any cover is a crime punishable by law and a betrayal of the people and their sacrifices," it said in a statement.

The activists held a nearly two-hour meeting on Monday over Zoom, an online conferencing service, discussing issues of common interest, including the coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)
...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...
pandemic.

The meeting was advertised on a Facebook event page and a recording was posted online by Israeli participants, prompting an outpouring of Paleostinian outrage against the Gaza activists on social media.

The family of Rami Aman, the main organizer and the founder of the Gaza Youth Committee which organized the call, said he answered a summons from the security service early Thursday and that they have not heard from him since.

According to a report in the New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

, during the conference call, Aman joked with participants: "In my opinion, thank you, corona, because corona put the Gaza Strip equal with everyone outside."

Aman, 38, has been arrested in the past for similar activities. In March of last year, he was held for several hours before being released after a conference call in which 10 members of the Gaza Youth Committee spoke to some 200 Israelis.

Following his release on that occasion, he said: "They investigated me about my activities with Israelis and the protests taking place in Gaza... I told them I never said anything wrong. I didn’t give away military information and I’m no spy. I never speak on behalf of others, on behalf of myself only."

"They tried to stress me out and confiscated my phone," he said, "but I denied everything."

A Hamas front man praised Thursday’s arrests.

"The relationship with the Zionist occupation is only a continuing fight until it is forced out of all Paleostinian lands," Hazem Qassem said.

The Jerusalem Post has more here.
