Iraq: US dividing the spoils

The bombing of al-Askariyah mosque in Samrra, Iraq, illogical as it is to Sunni and Shia, raises a number of important questions that spring from the basic one of Cui bono?

OpEd News' Mike Whitney asks: Whose bombs were they?
The only viable strategy, then, may be to correct (Iraq’s) historical defect and move in stages toward a three-state solution: Kurds in the north, Sunnis in the center and Shiites in the south. Leslie H. Gelb, president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations; from “Three-state Solution” NY Times 11-25-03

We are facing a major conspiracy that is targeting Iraq’s unity.
Iraqi President Jalal Talabani
…The belief that the attack was the work of American and Israeli covert-operations (Black-ops) is widespread throughout the region as well as among leftist political-analysts in the United States. Journalist Kurt Nimmo sees the bombing as a means of realizing “a plan sketched out in Oded Yinon’s “A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties” (the balkanization of Arab and Muslim society and culture.) Nimmo suggests that the plan may have been carried out by “American, British or Israeli Intelligence operatives or their double-agent Arab lunatics, or crazies incited by Rumsfeld’s Proactive Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG) designed to ‘stimulate’ terrorist reaction.”

Nimmo is not alone in his judgment. Other prominent analysts including, Pepe Escobar, Ghali Hassan, AK Gupta, Dahr Jamail, and Christian Parenti all agree that the Bush administration appears to be inciting civil war as part of an exit strategy.

Uruknet has this eyewitness report and timeline of the bombings.

The night before the bombing: Two eyewitnesses
Baghdad Dweller, February 23, 2006

The picture above shows Sunnis in Samarra demonstrating and condemning the bombing of the "Golden Dome", the Imam in the picture is a Sunni imam, you can tell from his white turban, Shia imams wear a black turban.

I want the readers to know that for Samarra inhabitants, the mosques doesn’t represents a Shia shrines only but represents the existence of the city also and they are very proud of them, even when the situation went very bad between Sunni and Shiia, Shiia pilgrimages to city never attacked by any group, it’s kind of unwritten code of honor.

Testimonies of two eyewitnesses near the bombed Dome:

Witness 1:

I live in a district very near to the mosque and I will tell you exactly what I saw hours before the bombing.

There is a daily curfew in our city (Samarra) starts from 8,00 in the evening until 6,00 in the morning, in the night before the bombing and just when it’s getting dark there was unusual activities by the ING in the area around the mosque, I heard their cars the whole night until next day in the morning.

The Mosque Guards testimony says: Four people with [Iraqi National Guard] ING uniforms blind folded them and set the bombs.

The witness continues, so ask I you how could the terrorists enter the area which is usually surrounded by the ING and enter the mosque then runway without being got by the police?.

Witness 2:

Witness 2 gives more detailed information and the Americans connection to the events before the bombing, so I made it as timeline of the events.

My name is Muhammad Al-Samarrai, I own an internet-cafe near the mosque, I sleep in my shop because I am worry about my computers from thieves.

8,30 (evening) joint forces of Iraqi ING and Americans asked me to stay in the shop and don’t leave the area.

9,00 (evening) they left the area.

11,00 (evening) they came back and started to patrol the area until the morning.

6,00 (next day morning) ING leave the area .

6,30 Americans leave the area .

6,40 first explosion.

6,41 second explosion.

He confirmed again that the curfew starts at 8,00 (evening) until next day 6,00 (morning), INGs and the Americans will surround and patrol the city all that time.

Former CIA Analyst: Western Intelligence May Be Behind Mosque Bombing
Ray Mcgovern says US in most danger ever, from its own government

Prison Planet | February 26 2006

Former CIA analyst a and presidential advisor Ray McGovern does not rule out Western involvement in this week's Askariya mosque bombing in light of previous false flag operations that have advanced hidden agendas of the ruling elite.

During the mid-eighties, McGovern was one of the senior analysts conducting early morning briefings of the PDB one-on-one with the Vice President, the Secretaries of State and Defense, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs.

He joined Alex Jones to discuss many topics from martial law to government false flag terrorism and provocation tactics.

McGovern firstly suggested that Posse Comitatus, the law that forbids the military to take on a policing role within the US, is being systematically overthrown.

"Not only have the top ranks of the intelligence community been politicized and corrupted, so has the army. The military establishment is goose stepping around, saluting the President and saying whatever the President wants them to."

Not any more fat-fetched than a lot of what has proven to be true ... depraved and twisted enough to have come from Rumsfeld et al.

Something goes wrong - blame Israel. (with zero proof, of course)

Predictable/frightening. And predictable.

I don't see where anyone said it is "all Israel's fault."

The suggestion is made that US, British and Israeli governments would benefit from such events. And the evidence shows that they, or people related to them, or from whom they adopt policy positions, have advocated such things in the past. Not to mention, Americans obviously had an opportunity to perpertrate this act.

Did they? and did they do it with British and Israeli help or knowledge, who knows?

But, I don't see anything far-fetched about making these suggestions, even if they are not conclusive.

WHERE is the motivation for Israel? Seriously.

It is not helpful to Israel to have a destabilized Iraq, and Israel certainly needs no one's permission to bomb weapons sites in Iran. (they did this in Iraq in 1981 without anyone's permission)

So where is the motivation? And where are the troops in the country necessary to accomplish this?

There are AMERICAN and BRITISH troops in Iraq. There are very few Israeli troops. And America and Britain have a motivation of having this as an exit strategy from Iraq.

But then again, intra-Iraqi groups have a motivation to cause mayhem and disrupt the government. As does Iran.

It is not clear who is responsible. All we know is that the people who did such atrocities looked like this:

Your rationality and clarity are appreciated, miss r.

Al-Qaeda was in control of Samarra for a few months before it was ousted in a pitched battle a few weeks ago. While in control of Samarra, and during the battle, nothing was done to harm the mosque (aka shrine).

Al-Qaeda may be relatively evil, but not unprincipled. Oil is in the south and the north, and a division is not in the interest of the heartland.

Another note: AQ calls Iraq "bilad-ir-rafidain" - the land of the two rivers - instead of the traditional emirates of Basrah, Baghdad and Mosul. If they were historical revisionists, they would replace the British designation (Iraq) with the historical emirates of the Turkish empire, instead of coining a new word.

It is good to know and respect the enemy than blindly hate it.

Simplicity, Honesty, Truth Are Powerful Basics To Eventual Victory
(Mighty Thor, 28 Feb 06)

"Akber" "Al qaeda" is mere CIA-Mossad front. Yes, they strive mightily to draw in Islamic dupes among the common folk, but nothing goes but for how CIA-Mossad directs and allows. U're obviously correct about making use of reason. Thus we need merely conceive the proper strategy, aesthetics (art) complementing conscious rationalist ideals and action--the Constantinian Christian cultural revolution of the West, eliminating the Jews and Judeo-"Sadducean" (like the "neo-cons" and Council on Foreign Relations [CFR]) conspirators-criminals-murderers, working behind the Federal Reserve Bank COUNTERFEITING scam-fraud, the actual down-to-earth engine-instrument and crux of all the present man-made horror and tragedy.

Regarding the Islamics who hate Jews and American suck-alongs, they're absolutely right and justified--certainly not "evil." (In strictest fact, note there is no "good-evil.") The only tragedy is they (Islamics) should, if they're truly smart, understand we patriot white Christians (the majority of our people, I'm quite sure) are absolutely against--at least potentially, when they think seriously--the Orwellian "perp. warfare" contrived by these insidious Jews and "neo-cons," and their crass imperialist incursions in Iraq and Afganistan--no different fm the murderous assault against our own white Christian comrades in Serbia a mere few yrs ago.

One advantage for us Christians is our absolute rejection of the Judaic "God" in favor of our own trinitarian mystery--yes, it makes no sense whatever (3 in one), but at least it REJECTS the Judaic.

CONCLUSION: So we work on these aesthetic fundamentals--and then emphasize the rationalist achievements based thereupon by our white, racist, Christian founders of the real and original American Constitution. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor
