Here’s the emerging story
one of the bombs did go of but didn’t injure anybody.
A New Depth for Terrorism?
Hardly; looks like Al Qaeda in Iraq may have learnt a thing or two from the 1938-48 Jewish terrorists who would frequently booby trap the bodies of
English soldiers. The Jewish terrorists won the war in the end because they were able to call themselves Israelis with the founding of Israel in 1948
following the British withdraw
. See the parell? www.cactus48.com...
Quite frankly I find it hard to know what Al Qaeda in Iraq wants to accomplish although they are now obviously having a good time killing Americans.
That and I suppose it will take our withdraw to allow Iraq’s Shiites to side with Iran (as they now clearly want to do)…
(Iran “fighting” Iraqi terrorism).
(But talks between U.S over Iraq “impossible” says Iran)
What the terrorists did with the soldiers bodies violates any concept of any standards of war. That said one has to ask whether paranoid and
overstretched U.S marines going into a house and killing men woman and children on some paranoid suspicion (as happened in Hadetha or in Fallujah) is
much worse than what the terrorists did? Both are crimes against the living committed by desperate people.
Don’t know about you but I wouldn’t be surprised if the standards of both sides have sharply deteriorated. Get them out? Or restore first the
Iraqi government to a secular one? One which won't side with Iran
or make allies with Al Qaeda
(Saddam hated Al Qaeda because they
hated him for being secular). Also did you know that before Iraq war Two, al-Zarqawi was in hiding
in northern Iraq from Saddam’s forces; it
was our invasion (supposedly against terrorism) that created the conditions for his terrorism and turned him into an icon.
I think before we leave Iraq we should consider restoring the Ba’th Party to power. That way there will be some order, and it won’t be the order
of Iran or Muslim fundamentalism. It will be somewhere free of weapons of mass destruction, and as that fact shows ruled by someone we can do
negotiate with. We could have our oil, Iraqis Sunnis would be spared the coming-progressing
genocide, everyone could have their security and
our forces would be out their country.
However none of this will happen unless we first acknowledge that we have made a big mistake. I must be missing something because the Neocons told a
lot of lies to get us into this war and make us make this big mistake.
What objective might the anarchy in Iraq conceal? Is it a simple case of handing out contracts to Halliburton or does it go much, much deeper than
