The American and
British populations are comfortably cushioned from
reality by the controlled media which censors news
and images of the horrendous humanitarian
catastrophe that has befallen the Iraqi people as a
result of the Anglo-American war of
aggression against the oil-rich nation, a military
crusade now in its 20th year. (The recent Dutch
judicial report from The Hague on the legal
questions surrounding the Anglo-American invasion of
Iraq in 2003 indicates that the war in Iraq can be
legally defined as a "War of Aggression", which is a
"Crime Against the Peace" under the Nuremberg
The Anglo-American war against Iraq, which
began on January 17, 1991, is now entering its 20th
year. The British have been trying to occupy Iraq
for more than one hundred years.
Halliday, the former Assistant Secretary General of
the United Nations and Humanitarian Coordinator for
Iraq (1997-98) explains the true nature of the
military campaign against the people of Iraq. As
Halliday writes, he was compelled to resign from his
position on moral grounds. To participate in the UN
program that had imposed "genocidal sanctions on the
innocent of Iraq" would have "implied my complicity
in human catastrophe," Halliday wrote.
In the same newsletter, I also recommend reading
the comments of Abdul Ilah Albayaty:
Instead of ending the occupation, handing Iraq
to its people and punishing those responsible
for this tragedy, instead of listening to the
Iraqi people’s rights and demands, the Obama
administration adopted the same strategy as
Bush: trying to create a client state in Iraq by
depending on the same corrupted backward forces
that supported the occupation against the Iraqi
people. The only difference is that it tries to
change the faces of its puppet government. The
plunder, the corruption, the repression and the
attempts to divide Iraq continue as before.
Following one year of the Obama administration
no change has taken place, despite the
declarations and promises.
Why have the wars in the Middle East
continued and increased under President Obama?
One year ago, Obama appointed Richard Holbrooke,
Henry Kissinger's right-hand man and
partner-in-crime, to run the "War on Terror"
as his envoy in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The
killing of innocent civilians has increased
greatly under Holbrooke. Kissinger is a key
player in the Zionist shadow government behind
the Obama administration. Note the expression
on Obama's face.
Kissinger and Holbrooke gave "The Kissinger
Prize" to George H.W. Bush at the American
Academy in Berlin, which they run together. The
elder Bush started the war in Iraq in 1991 and
was the first president to use the expression
"New World Order."
