In recent days,
the visage of a smiling Iyad Allawi has beamed from the screens
of corporate media, to try to put a nice face on the disaster in
fawned over, and lauded, as Iraq's "interim" prime minister,
Allawi is supposed to be the spokesman of an emergent 'democracy'
in Iraq, and by projection, in the entire Middle East.
One has to
wonder, 'Why this guy?' 'Where does he come from?' The long career
of Iyad Allawi is a long and winding road, one which brings him
to the attention and the service of the Americans.
When he was
a student in Britain, he was an informer for the Ba'athist Saddam
Hussein regime. Later, he conveniently switched his allegiance to
work for MI6, the
British intelligence agency. He would subsequently turn his coat
to serve the CIA. This opened the door to a lucrative career as
a consultant for various UN (United Nations)
agencies, from which he would launch the Iraqi National Accord (INA),
a group composed primarily of disaffected Ba'athists, who, on the
payroll of the Saudi royal house, the CIA, and MI6, would stage
a series of terrorist attacks in Iraq during the 1990s.
The INA bombed,
among other targets, an Iraqi movie theater, killing dozens of people.
In 1996, when the CIA backed a failed military coup against the
the presence of the INA was severely reduced in the country.
It is not an
accident of history that the world's loudest claimants to the so-called
'war against terrorism' would enlist a former terrorist in their
crusade to 'remake the
Middle East.' Messrs. Bush and [Tony] Blair couldn't give a tinker's
damn about terrorism this is about *control* of the Middle
East, and domination of the oil-rich region, for generations.
Iraqis are fighting against the so-called 'interim government!'
They know that most of the people on the benches are puppets of
foreign, imperial will, who also care nothing about 'democracy',

to follow their orders, and do their bidding. That is the way of
For the better
part of two generations, we saw this same thing, as the West handsomely
supported vile dictators like Mobutu in Zaire, Marcos in the Philippines,
the Shah in Iran, and a hundred other various princes, generals,
emirs and pashas.

With the exception
of the Kurds, and several Islamic parties, (like al Dawa and the
Supreme Council of the Islamic Revolution in Iraq [SCIRI]), few
of the representatives in the so-called government have a real social
base in the country, and have opposed Saddam's regime while he was

henchman of the Americans and the British, is being positioned to
as the new Iraqi strongman; using American and British imperial
might, to bolster his claim to 'democracy.'
A war was waged
on a lie, to bring forth this lie of an 'Iraqi democracy', where
the wealth and future of the nation is mortgaged off to the highest,
