Does History Repeat?

In a June 29th article of the South African publication, The Star ( is a great summary of the history of Western intervention in Iraq.

"For Iraq 1917, read Iraq 2003. For Iraq 1920 read Iraq 2004 or 2005.
Yes, we are preparing to give “full sovereignty” to Iraq..."

the article continues,

"That’s also what the British falsely claimed more than 80 years ago..."

"The British invasion army of 600 000 soldiers was led by Lieutenant General Sir Stanley Maude.."

That army made a proclamation and it went like this,

"...Our armies do not come into your cities and lands as conquerors or enemies, but as liberators …"

“It is the wish not only of my king and his peoples, but it is also the wish of the great nations with whom he is in alliance, that you should prosper even as in the past when your lands were fertile … It is the hope of the British government that the aspirations of your philosophers and writers shall be realised once again, that the people of Baghdad shall flourish, and shall enjoy their wealth and substance under institutions which are in consonance with their sacred laws and with their racial ideals …"

Now it sounds to me as if this proclamation might as well have been made today or in the past year at any time. Pehaps a failed plan by the NWO is now being reinacted or history is just filled with uncanny coincidences.... which side we take is for ourselves to decide...
