Condoleezza Rice's neo-colonial manifesto


english.aljazeera.com

It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry when one reads Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s article in the current issue of Foreign Affairs. It is a delusional inversion of reality.

By Patrick Seale

In the teeth of much local and regional opposition, Washington is pressuring Iraq’s Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to conclude a “strategic alliance” with the United States, which would allow it to keep substantial military forces in Iraq for the foreseeable future.

Even at the cost of 4,100 of its soldiers killed, another 30,000 or more seriously wounded, its reputation sorely tarnished, and a trillion dollar hole in its public accounts, the United States has clearly not yet learned the lesson that occupation breeds insurrection.

The invasion of Iraq in 2003 -- the smashing and near-dismemberment of the country, the killing and displacement of millions of its people -- must surely be judged one of the great crimes of our time. To seek to stay on after this unmitigated catastrophe -- making nonsense of Iraq’s independence and sovereignty -- not only perpetuates the crime, but is a grave strategic mistake for which both the United States and its Iraqi vassals are likely to pay dearly.

The most entertaining fact about US foreign policy is the consistent delusion of american policymakers and a large part of the american public (Major Media Viewers). In a new spectacular act of ignorance, Condoleeza Rice's article in Foreign Policy exhibits these core american values of delusion despite contrary facts to the brightest.

Well what can you expect from one of Bush's girls, she is one of the last one still faithful to he man.

I wonder if she is going to be the next step in the Republican party to follow the democrats into bringing color and gender all in one package to their party in the name of future candidacy for president.


She sure has done her duty.
