The Occupation of Iraq is the "War in
by Christopher Bollyn

Congress and the president debate whether to surge or not in the quagmire of
Iraq, the fundamental fact avoided by the Zionist-controlled press and
government spokesmen is that the occupation of Iraq is the war in Iraq, and vice
is to say that the so-called war in
is nothing more than the violence associated with the military occupation. When
the foreign armies leave Iraq,
the war will end. It's that simple.
illegal military occupations of
the Zionist occupation of Palestine,
are on-going acts of war and aggression that provoke and fuel conflict. The
popular anti-occupation resistance movements in each country are the natural and
legitimate responses to illegal occupation. Although seldom described in these
terms in the U.S.
media, the American people clearly understand that the exceedingly cruel
occupation of Iraq
is the underlying cause of the conflict that has ravaged that nation since the
U.S.-led invasion of March 2003.
Recent public opinion polls (Dec. 2006) found that seventy percent of the U.S.
public wants the new Congress to pressure the White House to begin bringing
troops home within six months. Nearly 80 percent of the American public
supports withdrawing almost all
troops from Iraq

White House press secretary Tony Snow said that the president's decision would
not be swayed by public opinion polls. Snow's comment indicated that the Bush
administration hopes "to bring the public back" to the extremely unpopular war.
"The president will not shape policy according to public opinion, but he does
understand that it's important to bring the public back to this war and restore
public confidence and support for the mission," Snow said on January 9.

demanding an end to the U.S.-led occupation, why are our elected officials
considering sending more troops? The only people who support sending more troops
are hard-core Zionists, like Frederick Kagan, one of the Israel-first planners
who pushed hard for war against Iraq.
Fred is, along with his father, Donald, and brother, Robert, among the signers
of the Project for the New American Century document from 2000, which
specifically called for U.S.
aggression against Iraq.
"Removing Saddam Hussein and his regime from power," Robert Kagan and other
Neo-Cons wrote to President Clinton in January 1998, "…needs to become the aim
of American foreign policy." Robert's brother, Fred, is now telling the
president to send more troops to the
quagmire: "We need a long-lasting surge because we have to keep in mind that we
face an enemy here that adapts to our strategy," Kagan, a resident scholar at
the American Enterprise Institute says. "If we do a short surge they will just
wait us out. We need to surge for at least 18 months."
ZIONIST DESIGNED CHAOS
neoconservatives have always considered a stable and functioning
a threat to their design for the Middle East, Professor Abbas J. Ali of IndianaUniversity,
wrote in his recent article "Targeting Sadrists, Targeting Iraq."
Michael Ledeen, a Neo-Con strategist, says that instability in the Middle East
is the preferred political state because it facilitates
control of the region. "Stability is an unworthy American mission and a
misleading concept to boot," Ledeen says. "The real issue is not whether, but
how to destabilize."
three years of U.S.-led occupation, life for the Iraqi people has become
extremely unstable, miserable, and hopeless. Iraqis are deserting the country
in droves. Has the widespread misery in
been created by design – Zionist design – as Ledeen's comment suggests?
we consider that Ledeen's 28-year-old daughter, Simone, went to
in the fall of 2003 as adviser to the occupation government's Ministry of
Finance in Baghdad,
and played a key role in establishing the regime of quislings, the answer seems
obvious. "In short order," the Washington Post reported, "six of the new
young hires [including Ledeen] found themselves managing the country's $13
billion budget, making decisions affecting millions of Iraqis."
"HIGHLY SOPHISTICATED" TERRORISM
recent article in Azzaman (December 13, 2006), confirms the suspicion
that much of the chaos and carnage is being carried out by foreign secret
services and their agents – not Iraqis:
is a deep fear among the leaders of the Sadrist Movement in parliament that
their followers are being targeted. They believe that the call for a surge in
foreign troops in
goes beyond intimidation. Foreign troops, they argue, will not direct its power
against terrorists. Their fears have been reinforced since government security
experts discovered that the bombs in Sadr City on November 23 and the one that
followed two weeks later in al-Tayrin Circle in central Baghdad, which
slaughtered Sadrist supporters, were made of highly sophisticated materials that
neither foreign terrorists nor Iraqi groups have access to nor the skills to
evidence indicates that much of the bombing and bloodshed in occupied
is actually being done by foreign secret services. Two British agents, for
example, disguised as Shiite militiamen, were captured in
in the fall of 2005 with a car full of explosives and detonators after they had
driven by and fired on a crowd of protestors. Caught by Iraqi police, the
British army took extreme measures and bulldozed the prison to obtain the
release of the fake Shiite terrorists before they could be interrogated and
charged with crimes of terrorism.

Senor later served as Senior Advisor to L. Paul Bremer III, Administrator of the
Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA), whom he advised on a variety of policy

most highly placed agents during the war, went to

hostile takeover of
strategic assets was clearly the Zionist plan from the beginning. The plan was
to acquire the wealth of Iraq
by managing the privatization of Iraqi factories and resources. The agents for
this scheme were carefully chosen by the Bush administration.
Paul Bremer, the former managing director of Kissinger Associates, was named
Director of Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance for post-war
on May 6, 2003. Bremer had served as Kissinger's executive assistant at the
State Dept. in the 1970's. Prior to his mission in
Bremer was the Chairman and CEO of Marsh Crisis Consulting, a risk and insurance
services firm and a subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan. As head of the Coalition
Provisional Authority, Bremer exercised complete authority over Iraq's
civil administration. He served in this capacity from May 11, 2003 until a
puppet government was installed on June 28, 2004.
"dismal performance" of the CPA to improve the quality of life for Iraqis under
its occupation was the result of a "toxic mix of ideological obsession and
cronyism," according to Paul Krugman of the New York Times. "The
insurgency took root during the occupation's first few months, when the
Coalition Provisional Authority seemed oddly disengaged from the problems of
postwar anarchy. But what was Paul Bremer III, the head of the C.P.A., focused
on?" Krugman asked.
"According to a Washington Post reporter who shared a flight with him
last June, 'Bremer discussed the need to privatize government-run factories with
such fervor that his voice cut through the din of the cargo hold,'" Krugman
wrote in July 2004. Bush appointed his friend and political supporter, Thomas C.

March 13, 2004, Michael Fleischer became director and took charge of the effort

The evidence is clear that Fleischer has long been a paid agent of the state of
and an employee of Israeli military intelligence. Bogen, originally an
American-owned electronics company, has been an asset of Israeli military
intelligence since 1995. Fleischer was made president of Bogen in 1997, when
the Israeli owners shifted seats. Bogen is actually owned and run by a handful
of Israeli agents, closely tied to the Israeli Air Force.
people who hired and paid Michael Fleischer are former Israeli fighter pilots,
Yoav Stern and Zivi R. Nedivi. These Israelis have been involved in a string of
electronic, aviation, and avionics companies since they came to the
in the 1990s. They are both former directors and officers of Rada, the "mother
ship" company based in Israel.
Rada (www.rada.com) is run by senior officers of the Israeli air force. The
president and CEO of Rada, for example, is General (Res.) Herzle Bodinger.
Bodinger served in the Israeli air force for 35 years and was commander of the
force from January 1992 to July 1996. All the Rada's senior executives have
similar Israeli air force backgrounds.
