Two Decades of Genocide in Iraq

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 Charter.)

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.
Denis 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."
