The Iraq war
Or is it?
With a spate
of attacks that have cost American lives almost daily, the newly-minted
General in charge of the region, Abizaid, has been forced to admit
the obvious: Iraqis are waging a guerilla war against the British
and American foreigners who came 'to bring them freedom and democracy.'
Bush-Blair axis is frayed at the seams with the White Houses
recent admission that Bush should not have given that old 'Niger
gave Saddam uranium' ploy, as it was being easily demolished in
The Great Iraq
Victory over the Forces of Tyranny is fast becoming a Great Big
Mess. Iraqis, like most folks, dont like being told what to
do by outsiders. They may not have loved their wily president (Hussein)
but he is beginning to look lovely beside the specter of British
and Americans riding roughshod over their country, telling them
what they can do, and what they cant do; telling them what
they can say, and what they
ago, a young man on Death Row made an interesting remark when a
bunch of men were discussing the latest events coming out of Iraq.
He first stated,
O.K.; now that it looks that they lied to the American people
to justify goin' in there, shouldnt they give dude his country
men laughed at his remark, he added, seriously, Look-- They
used bogus reasons to go in there; they took over them peoples
country-- seriously. Now that aint right. Cant they
give it back to those people?
Some of us laughed;
others simply pondered it, as if the thought never occurred to us
didnt drop mass tonnage over Baghdad to bring 'democracy'
to the Iraqis. Britons didnt strike Najaf to introduce the
Iraqis to 'parliamentary democracy.'
The Bush and
Blair war plans didn't seek to 'liberate' the Iraqi people. They
can certainly find millions of people in the world who are not liberated.
Britain can look no further than its perpetual colony of over 700
years,Ireland. The U.S. can look to its Caribbean colony, the so-called
Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
They went to
war carrying the briefs of big business, in search, not of liberty,
but of the vast oil deposits that sit almost within arm's reach
in the desert regions.
Before the war,
millions of people yelled, at that top of their lungs, No
Blood for Oil! They were right then; they are right now.
The U.S. Empire
pushed the UN to the breaking point when it wouldnt sign on
to their adventure. It sought to isolate the French and the Germans,
and America went postal for several weeks against everything French.
Now that the Americans are welcomed with bursts of gunfire instead
of bouquets of flowers, the Empire that wanted to go it alone, is
reaching out to 'Old Europe' (or at least old India) to give them
a hand, to share the cost of administering their empire. 'Old Europe',
at the moment, seems cool
to the idea.
Why the war?
Because oil is bought and sold in dollars. What would have happened
if the Hussein regime started using Euros, instead of dollars? The
shock to the dollar would have been immense, and nations would've
converted to Euros to buy the necessary resource. The global dumping
of the dollar would've sent the U.S. economy into freefall. That
didn't happen, because the U.S. and the U.K. manufactured "reasons"
to launch deadly assaults on Iraq.
That's the reason
for the rush, the mad dash for war, that couldn't wait for weapons
inspectors, The UN, anybody. Now we find manufactured evidence,
fed to the U.S. from Britain. It was designed to push U.S. citizens
to fear, and it worked.
The war was
easily started. But it aint so easy to end.
