Iraq is imploding

Two more Iraqis - both women - were shot dead at a checkpoint by US forces. One of them was pregnant. Between this, the Haditha massacre, and the state of emergency in Basra, there is NO WAY that US forces can continue to occupy Iraq.
Two Iraqi women were shot to death north of Baghdad after coalition forces fired on a vehicle that failed to stop at an observation post, the U.S. military said Wednesday. Iraqi police and relatives said one of the women was about to give birth.

A car entered a clearly marked prohibited area near coalition troops at an observation post but failed to stop despite repeated visual and auditory warnings, the U.S. military said in a statement e-mailed to The Associated Press.
Did they really fail to stop? Was the area really clearly marked? It's still too early to know.
"Shots were fired to disable the vehicle," the statement said. "Coalition forces later received reports from Iraqi police that two women had died from gunshot wounds ... and one of the females may have been pregnant."
You don't shoot at the windshield to "disable" a vehicle.
"The loss of life is regrettable and coalition forces go to great lengths to prevent them," the military said.

The statement was issued after Iraqi police said a pregnant woman and her cousin were killed by American troops while driving to a maternity hospital in Samarra, a predominantly Sunni city 60 miles north of Baghdad.
Good God. Must they always wait until they're exposed to 'release a statement'?
AP Television News footage showed the women's bodies wrapped in sheets and lying on stretchers outside the Samarra General Hospital, while residents pointed to bullet holes on the windshield of a car and a pool of blood on the seat.

"I was with the victims, one of them was pregnant and about to give birth," said a woman who did not give her name but said she was a relative of the victims.
This simply can't go on much longer. The situation is out of control.

U.S. officials expressed regret that American troops had shot and killed two Iraqi women — one of them pregnant — whose car had entered a restricted area north of Baghdad on Tuesday.

A survivor of the incident who identified himself as a relative of the women told the Associated Press that he did not see any warnings, and said the post was new and unknown to many residents.
Just as I suspected.

Again and again the thing us dissenting, treasonous types have come to pass. When will they realize that this war is not making us anymore free?

Why do you say it can't go on much longer? The killing and madness will continue as long as neocons want it to and as long as sheep are more worried about the gasoline price "crisis" than innocent human lives being destroyed. The majority of people in this country won't care intil it's happening to us.

Anonymous...you are right. The ignorant, don't give a damn people in the US are desensitized to the carnage going on in Iraq. Until we see Americans getting bullets shot through their windshields, this will continue....as long as the taxpayer bucks keep flowing to the military-industrial complex (IE: George Bush's friends).

Fred, I think anon one and two are right about Americans being hopelessly clueless.

But, my suggestion is NOT premised on Americans realizing what's going on - I have concluded that they're brain-dead. My conclusion is based on the certain fury that these incidents are whipping up among Iraqis.

All these atrocities will release a fierce blow-back, the likes of which Americans have never seen before.

"Elders" Are Key To Sociologic Problem
(Mighty Thor, 31 May 06)

Note according to New Testament (NT) Conspiracy theory-analytic-template (ck essays by "Apollonian", under "commentary" heading at NewNation.org) the "elders" are so key to the sociologic puzzle. Thus we suffer Orwellian "perpetual warfare" so much at behest of "elders" who care only about those social-security checks in the mailbox.

Who are the "Judeo-Christians" (a contradiction-oxymoron--and also heresy--see Whtt.org), but the elders who pretend they're Christians and pretend Jews are something like Christians too. (Judaism is antithematic to Christianity, by nature and essence.) Thus these "Judeo-Christians" are so willing and eager to be corrupted by the Pharisees (Jews) and their MAMMON culture built upon heresy, never outright Judaism (Talmudism) or anti-Christianity, u see.

Jews get people to worship them--simply by means of money, "wealth," addiction. Elders are addicted to their social-security culture-mentality--and checks in the mailbox, baby.

But MAMMON empire is fed by "perpetual war"--the price the elders are willing to pay, betraying even their own immediate offspring, as Machiavelli noted and predicted, to such as "depleted uranium." Elders can be ruthless--note they co-conspired to murder Christ according to NT.

But history is cyclic according to Oswald Spengler's "Decline of the West," and the Jew-disease will consume the host too much whence the Jew-disease must recede. So do we gentiles look for our chances to resurge our sick Western culture.

It's Jews, yes, a major part of the disease-effect, but it also includes co-conspirators and accomplices among the gentiles, these subjectivists, along with Jews, and the elders phenomenon of corruption and hubris is thematic, crucial, and key.

These observations regarding the corrupt and perverted elders indicate things may have to get worse as present war-party, Bush II, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al., want to threaten Iran by means of everworse turmoil in Iraq, the object being to continue "perpetual war."

CONCLUSION: Necessary target must be removal of Fed counterfeiting scam--it will eventually work against elders themselves, who must be warned of their sinful ways. This treatment of "elder" sociologic problem will require most effective rationalist aesthetic conception--like for example, the idea that Christianity is antithesis of Judaism and that there's good reason for it. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor

Hundreds such events were happened.

Still, we intellectuals say: Oh, Bush is bad but Saddam was worse. Can any sane person compare the atrocities of Saddam with the atrocities of this war and the collective suffering of the Iraqi people.

It is laughable that he is being tried for the judicial execution of 140 people in Dujail who were involved in a presidential assassination.

Where is our sense of balance and morality. Unless this is absolute, and we punish the committers of atrocities regardless of their origin, our sense of justice is incomplete.

Until then, we have only ourselves to blame.

"Perpetual Warfare" Is Designed Against USA Too
(Mighty Thor, 31 May 06)

Actually Akber, what bothers me most is this Orwellian "perpetual war" now inflicted in Iraq IS eventually DESIGNED AGAINST USA too BY DELIBERATELY INCITING ISLAMIC PEOPLE who will now provide soldiers against the people of USA, like me.

Ck Judicial-inc.biz which demonstrates Israelis, for foremost example, want to incite greater and greater atrocities against Iraqi citizens.

The people who control Bush II, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR--see JBS.org) are quite deliberately and consciously using present "perpetual war" against the USA and its people too. "Perpetual war" serves only Jews and their accomplices among the oligarchs.

"Perpetual war" is a double-edged weapon which effectively only serves topmost masterminds: the crux to it is the Federal Reserve Bank (Fed) counterfeiting scam fuelling everything, including providing the checks to the "elders." Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor

You are absolutly correct that it cannot go on much longer. We are SUPPOSED to be the good guys. However, our military produces killing machine out of fine and decent human beings. Two personal examples:
My brother was killed in Vietnam on the next to last day of his last extension of combat duty. Until the moment he died, he believed that he was protecting his country and FAMILY from the "red menace" that was threateaning the world and our precious "way of life." Sound familiar? Well we cut and run and basically lost that war, and....well, the world and our way of life didn't end.
Example two: my best friend from high school joined the marines shortly after graduation, and although he never served in combat, he definitely changed into a violent, unstable kind of killing machine. Good guy to be around in the middle of a bar fight, but not the fun loving guy he was in school.
The point is, these guys are doing what they are assimilated and systematically brainwashed to do. And for many of them, Things don't change once they get out of the service.
As a post memorial day reflection, I wonder how screwed up my brother would have been had he survived Vietnam.
Your blog rocks, btw.

Undeniable, Thanks for the kind words.

I am sorry to hear about your brother. I don't think there was ever a war that wasn't fought, in the first instance, on a LIE to further the interests of a select few.

And yes, 'we the people' are expected to sacrifice our lives for these interests, and to that end we are conditioned from birth to do it efficiently - in other words, at little cost to THEM (those in control).

This involves reducing us to the status of animals, existing only to pursue their filthy, debased, and meaningless dollars and to abandon everything else of value in the process.

The only escape from this madness is to diligently search for the truth and hold on tight when you find it.

Obviously, the memo hasn't gotten through to people:


Whatever the broadsheet/primetime BS in the US the rest of the world are not fools and will reject these policies, US leadership and, regrettably, all Americans for these actions. How much clearer does it have to be. Get these people out.

“Still, we intellectuals say: Oh, Bush is bad but Saddam was worse”

everytime I heard yanks justifying the rape of iraq by citing the crimes of saddam,I wonder since when has saddam Hussein become the moral compass of these human rights champions.?
And professor Richard waldon’s words always come to mind……

[We are not responsible or accountable for what Saddam has done; we are responsible and accountable for what we have done
So to those defenders of the sanctions who try to divert the discussion to the actions of the Saddam government, I say that by what we have done to the suffering people of Iraq and what we continue to do with sanctions and otherwise (U.S. bombs fell during our visit), we have forfeited that right.
We, as Americans, are not accountable for the actions of the Iraq government but we are accountable for the actions of our own government ]

just in case....
hello akber, my previous post wasnt directed against you, it's for those yanks that you mention who like to claim the moral high ground but somehow they think that saddam hussein should be their moral compass.

Last weekend I went to the local donut shop, took a seat to enjoy my 'teef-freeze' iced-tea when I noticed a new, white Hummer pull into the parking area. The man getting out of his truck with Texas plates was wearing a New York Mets cap. He purchased his coffee and donut and sat down beside me. I could see a Jesus Fish pin on his baseball hat. Thinking he was a friendly American christian, I asked him, "How's Bush doing, still talking to God?" His reply, "He's on track!" He promptly got up, chuckled then headed straight for the door. Still in ear shot I yelled, "If you want to make God laugh, tell'em your plans for Iraq!" No response. People of faith obviously shouldn't be hounded out of the corner donut store, but American's often look to God more to defend their decisions than guide them.

The Bush Crusaders fighting against Iraq, expect God to ride shotgun through the mighty United States liberating mission, yet still haven't given us the big picture. God may have gave Bush the guidlines, it's just the "devil is in the details" fine print that has me confused.

The Corp-Wars in the Mid-East were designed to make American's forget the voting scams but mostly that Bush was faking being asleep at the switch on 9/11. How many American's can recall the day Frank Corder stole a single engine plane from Maryland and crashed it into the WhiteHouse (there are reports that is was a remote controlled plane) just two stories below the Presidential bedroom. It was the same day President Clinton signed the new "Crime Bill" SEPTEMBER 12, 1994. I guess God forgot to let George Bush know as well on that September 11th morn. And as the fury and the fear of 911 starts to fade, the message going out with the "Patriot Act" and illegal wire taps...if you oppose this administration, there can and will be ramifications. The world is no longer in love with America's own idea's of world peace and is out-of-step with the neo-con-men imperialistic march trying to emulate the Roman Empire. Even so, the American Empire will be of a substantially shorter duration.

Canada has had to put up with American right-wing commentators and what we've realised in the last decade , is that America is it's own yapping worst enemy. When American's enter our East Coast for fishing purposes, breaking countless laws are you are friends?
When you push us around and manipulate us in order to benefit from our natural resources and then not pay us for them, are you are friends? When 9 out of 10 American's can't find Canada on a map and have a president who cannot name our Prime Minister "Poutine?", are they are friends. No. They are bullies.
We know what America has in store for Canada and the world. One of our loose-lipped fellow Canucks, communications director Stephen Knifton, made the mistake of calling Bush a "moron" on public TV. Pat Buchanan fumed, "It's all proof that Canadians are the spoiled brats of the new world order."

American's might enjoy making fun of my country and yell about how we could never defend ourselves against a foreign attack, but we know better. We have had to repel many attacks from a hostile country. America attempted expansion into Canada six times up until 1820. Canada aspires to a just society. And justice pursued honourably is a more worthy course to peace than merely asserting "might makes right."
It is obvious what country poses the only real threat to us and Canada's sovereignty. The pet name we have for our new 'conservative' PM is "Shrub" and is trying very hard to hook us up to Bush's wagon train. No thanks, Mr Harper!
America has used biological and chemical weapons in most of it's wars, has sponsored guerrilla warfare coups, rigged elections and encouraged assassinations in others nations. No FU**ING thanks!!
After 12 years of sanctions to soften them up in Iraq, America pulverized it's citizens by massive co-ordinated US air strikes and artillery barrages. Iraq lies in ruins, yet Bush claims America is safer, "The free people of Iraq are now doing what Saddam Hussein never could: Making Iraq a positive example for the entire Middle East." OK, the U.S. may have won an inevitable military victory, political victory so far remains elusive.

Occupied Iraq is acting as a terrorism generator. Bush and Cheney have created millions of new enemies around the world, U.S. motives are not unassailable. Yours is a record of duplicity running counter to media promoted self-image as an honest nation.

The bilderbergerheads are having a little party in our own backyard in June (8-11) I wonder where God fits into their plans of the new world order. Perhaps they will turn to the New Testament, Matthew 6:24-34 say's, "No one can serve two masters....You cannot serve God and wealth."

Why do you say it can't go on much longer?

There are some good signs that revolution is possible and will come soon. In Denver protestors more or less shut down the downtown area for several areas fighting against Bu$h and the anti-immigration nazis. That people are starting to gather to an extend that they shut down business as usual this is a good sign the revolution is coming and coming soon.

it seems the only way that the thickest bores of the American population learn anything is when the boys and girls come home with horrible injuries or are dead.

You've done so much damage in Iraq that even decent people like me think every IED that hits the unwanted occupiers will eventually get rid of them.

Trouble is they are all just pawns in this too

the paper tiger is exposed as hollow and the cracks are showing

you deserve everything you get for your insular outlook, arrogance and appathy

This is going too far, the army has to get out of that lace, there is nothing good coming from their occupation there. Not even if they want to Buy Levitra at a good price, it is not worth it.
