- By now you heard the announcements that Saddam Hussein
has been captured. The celebrations have been reported, the
pictures of joy sent around the world. Now that the war is 'really' over,
when will the troops start to come home? Before you hear and read all the
detailed accounts of the capture, let's focus on the stated purpose of
the Iraqi invasion. Since a WMD cache still eludes finding, the proponents
of the war must hang their hat on the finding and arresting of the evil
- Mission accomplished, so what's next? Any student of
history knows all too well that the U.S. involvement into Iraq will not
be temporary or that the boys won't be coming home anytime soon. The real
test of motives for any belligerent is how they manage a victory. It is
necessary to remind that the intrusion into Iraq was a pre-empted incursion.
This strategy is certainly a fundamental departure from any previous policy
to commit to a major campaign. Therefore, the defenders of that course,
are left with the unenviable task of justifying the results of that action.
- As time passes, you will be left empty with this temporary
enthusiasm. In the end, this war will never be seen as a liberation of
the Iraqi people, but will be viewed as an assault on the American society.
Principles of engagement have significance. Deployments deplete moral resolve
when made discretionary. The question that will haunt the War Party is
whether this war was necessary?
- When General Ricardo Sanchez laughs at the question when
will the boys be leaving, his answer is typical: when the mission is over.
This is an opportunity to grow up as a nation. Rational citizens are left
with the stark reality that foreign policy is designed as a mobile plan
to implement hidden goals with each incremental intimidation against regimes
that oppose the New World Order.
- The talking heads are already praising the triumph as
a message to any other country that is ruled by a dictator, not approved
by the Washington DC autocrats. Thatâs the undeniable lesson of this
encounter into the affairs of the international disunity that only globalism
can cure. This precedent will establish that superior power can be used
to poke a stick in the eye of any country that opposes the interventionist
legions of armed occupation. The special forces will get the permanent
assignment of destabilizing regimes for the purpose of establishing the
- Nice work if you can get it, but for whom, does this
formula benefit? Watch the travels of James Baker III for your answer.
As <http://www.strike-the-root.com/3/palast/palast1.html>Greg Palast
so aptly addresses the big picture: "We are talking about something
called 'sovereign debt.' And unless George Bush has finally fessed up and
named himself Pasha of Iraq, he is not their sovereign. Mr. Bush has no
authority to seize control of that nation's assets nor its debts .. . .
Over the years, Jim Baker has taken responsibility for putting bread on
the Bush family table. As Senior Counsel to Carlyle, the arms-dealing investment
group, Baker arranged for the firm to hire both President Bush 41 after
he was booted from the White House and President Bush 43 while his daddy
was still in office."
- The responsibility for nation building is another excuse
used to control a conquered country. The Iraqi Governing Council just a
replacement for Mohammed Reza Pahlavi - shah of Iran - what do you think?
Take the long perspective when putting the jigsaw puzzle together. The
game never changes, itâs only the pieces that are painted with different
- Has this war made America any safer? In the end, that's
the only question that really matters. Domestically this battle has been
a debacle for liberty. You are hearing the media rejoicing and using the
term freedom, over and over. Somehow it escapes how the antecedent of 'so-called'
Iraqi liberation, has produced freedom back home. Saddam a dictator, sure.
But why should replacing him with a cabal of globalists, using the cover
of a coalition name be any different?
- The love feast is already gone nauseous. Just wait when
Bin Laden is hooked by the Bush clan (just before the coming election),
Baker will be working overtime. Forcing democracy upon a culture that has
no tradition or desire to fashion one is the decisive mistake of the living
history you are watching. If the real goal was Iraqi freedom, let the factions
break up the country into tribal territories. Don't hold your breath, that's
a solution that doesn't serve the selective control of the oil flow.
- Don't be too surprised when you hear that those phantom
weapons are stored in Syria and Iran. Saddam will talk and what is needed
will be said. Bring the troops home, when they are already there, just
means more work yet to do . . . If you doubt this assessment, check back
in ten years and see who is right. The empire will build their <http://cheiron.humanities.mcmaster.ca/~trajan/>Trajan's
Column. Conquered barbarians will be allowed to enter the gate of the new
Rome. And the garrisons will still be manned. What will Howard Dean do
