So I just got done reading a recently posted article claiming that there were WMD's in Iraq after all. And in all honesty I can't tell if it's
true or not. It's most likely misleading to some extent. But what I do know for sure is to never take anything for it's face value. This led me
to further think about a pet theory I've had about the war in Iraq.
As most of you know, Iraq sits atop of what was once the most advanced civilization on Earth. One of the first civilizations on Earth that we know of
actually. I find it quite interesting that what once once the pinacle of human civilization, now represents the lowest of human civilization.
Nothing against the Iraqi people, but it doesn't look to good when you've got a civil war going on in the midst of occupation by an invader.
One of the questions many people have asked is why the US invaded Iraq, and why we're still there. Some say we invaded to boost the economy, some
say George W. Bush wanted to finish his father's legacy, some say it was for oil, other's think we wanted a distraction from the real problems at
home. The official story is that Sadamn Hussien had weapons of mass destruction (WMD's), which is looked down on by the UN.
Why are we there? Officially I believe that the purpose is to bring stability. Some think we're still searching for WMD's, some think we still
want oil, a few think it's all political. My theory is that we're there because we want something. Something from an era long before George W.
Bush, before Reagen, before Hussien, even from before the British occupied Iraq. Something from hundreds, possibly thousands of years ago. What are
they looking for exactly? Maybe the Garden of Eden for all we know, but my personal theory is that they're looking for alien artifacts of some
It sounds quite far fetched, and I suppose it is. However if you read Chariots of the Gods then you may understand the angle I'm coming from.
Actually if you know the backstory to Stargate SG-1 then you probably have a good idea of what I'm talking about. In a nutshell, it's been
theorized that alien life forms assisted early human beings. The best example being the construction of the pyramids.
So what leads me to formulate such a theory, other than the geography of the invaded land? Well for starters there was a case in which a US Army base
of some sort was apparently built on ruins in Babylon;
Army base 'has damaged Babylon'
Coalition forces in Iraq have caused irreparable damage to the ancient city of Babylon, the British Museum says.
Sandbags have been filled with precious archaeological fragments and 2,600 year old paving stones have been crushed by tanks, a museum report
The US Army says the troops based in the city, some 50 miles (80km) south of Baghdad, are well aware of its historical significance.
A possible cover up for some form of secret excavation? Doesn't seem out of the question to me.
The second thing is the embassy in Baghdad. As many of you know, it's a city that was essentially the center of the Arabic Empire from hundreds of
years ago. So in my opinion it's highly plausible that ancient artifacts from all around the fertile crescent may have been moved there. It's also
plausible that artifacts from Egypt may have been stolen and brought to Baghdad. So is it just coincidence that one of the world's largest embassies
(property of the United States) is being built along the Tigris river.
Some interesting facts about it;
First, take the sheer size of the Embassy. It will have a staff of 1,500, including over 500 Iraqis designated as Foreign Service Nationals (FSN).
Such a large number of people -- more than half civil servants -- will inevitably demand enormous personnel coordination and organization. With so
many bodies around, it'll be difficult to determine exactly who does what, and an inordinate amount of dead time will be spent deciding upon
assignments and responsibilities. Even Ambassador Francis Ricciardone, who set up the Baghdad embassy, acknowledges "there are technical problems,
issues of different management cultures, different ways of keeping records and communicating and doing money and assigning people," while
diplomatically stating that "the two lead agencies -- Defense and State -- have been really partnering.wonderfully." (Federal Times, June
Protected by 15ft thick walls and ringed by military guards, it signals the seriousness of America's intentions to retain a large and long-term
presence in the country. The £315 million building's existence is meant to be a secret. Any request for a comment from the US State Department is
met with a terse rebuff, and a plea for a photo opportunity is deemed out of the question.
But it is impossible to keep hidden a complex that will be the size of Vatican City with the population of a small town, especially when it is lit up
at nightfall to permit work on it to continue 24 hours a day.
But what's even more interesting comes from the bottom of the article;
It is only in recent weeks that Iraqis have begun to realize the new complex is being built. Last month a local newspaper became the first to
write an article on it.
It questioned why the US had been given land in the centre of Baghdad for free instead of having to pay the market price for it.
Is it all just part of the bizarrness of war? Or are there really historical, possibly extraterrestrial reasons for invading Iraq?
