Iraq:Round III

...and a child says, "Get the hell out!"
…and a child says, “Get the hell out!”

Wow! We’ve been fucking up Iraq since the Gulf War

(2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991),
for operations leading to the build up of troops and defense of Saudi Arabia and Operation Desert Storm (17 January 1991 – 28 February 1991) was a war waged by coalition forces from 34 nations led by the United States against Iraq in response to Iraq’s invasion and annexation of Kuwait.

Thanks to George H. W. Bush, and coalition forces, we swept through and got shit done right and proper like. We fucking knew there’d be no need to EVER go back to Iraq ’cause it was just too easy the first time. But wait! What the fuck happened? Were we too cocky? Did Iraq attack the U.S. over Operation Desert Storm? Did we fucking go back and strike Iraq for legitimate reasons? What the hell happened? I thought Iraq was soundly defeated and sanctioned to pieces.

“The UN Security Council imposed comprehensive economic sanctions against Iraq on August 6, 1990, just after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. When the coalition war had ousted Iraq from Kuwait the following year, the Council did not lift the sanctions, keeping them in place as leverage to press for Iraqi disarmament and other goals. The sanctions remained in place thereafter, despite a harsh impact on innocent Iraqi civilians and an evident lack of pressure on Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. A UN “Oil-for-Food Programme,” started in late 1997, offered some relief to Iraqis, but the humanitarian crisis continued.

The US and UK governments always made it clear that they would block any lifting or serious reforming of sanctions as long as Hussein remained in power. After more than twelve years of sanctions had passed, the US and the UK made war on Iraq again in March, 2003, sweeping away Hussein’s government. Soon after, Washington called for and obtained the lifting of sanctions, a step that gave the US occupation authority full control over Iraq’s oil sales and oil industry. This section covers a wide range of sanction issues, including the humanitarian impact, the Oil-for-Food Programme, criticisms of the sanctions and the debate that took place about their termination.”

Seriously? And we are supposed to be the ‘good guys’. I fucking find that hard to believe! The Americans and the British knew who would be adversely impacted by the sanctions. Both knew that sanctions would have a devastating impact on innocent Iraqis, especially children and they didn’t bat a goddamn eye over imposing them. We are worse than some filthy, foul ass shits. The deepest pit of hell would be considered a 5-star resort to the evil motherfuckers that initiated such a horror on innocent people! And as if that wasn’t bad enough, Iraq has to get attacked again over some bullshit! Operation Iraqi Freedom, now ain’t that a bitch!

Bush said he invaded Iraq “to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, to end Saddam Hussein’s support for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people.” And I say, “Bullshit!!”

“Defense of the American people is primary among the goals and objectives of U.S. actions in Iraq,” Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said. Again, I say, “Bullshit!!”

Those murdering bastards lied through their teeth and many of us knew it but we were considered to be unpatriotic for denouncing outright murder against innocent people who had suffered enough but who were about to get the hell that only America can unleash on them, unleashed. The people of Iraq were dirt poor, but the country was oil rich and we fucking need that goddamn oil, fucking oil gluts that we are! So, bring on the lies and the propaganda and the hype of freeing the Iraqi people from their evil dictator. They’ll thank us, they will. They want OUR brand of democracy shoved down their throats and it don’t really matter what the hell they want. They want what we want them to want and that’s the fucking way it’s gonna be. We’ll see to that. Come hell or high water. We’ll get those Iraqi people in line with OUR way of thinking. Now give ’em hell and they won’t know what hit ’em. It’s Operation Iraqi Freedom time! The American people are sheep, so fucking easily led, just shove patriotism down their oh so willing throats and we can get away with murder and make money, hand over fist while doing it. Of course, we’ll have those American sheeple in debt up past their eyeballs once we’ve thrown a trillion dollars in Iraq, all unfunded of course. Why, we’ll just print some more money. Who the fuck’ll notice and meanwhile Bush’s cronies and Dick Cheney’s cronies made billions. And the American sheeple? Those suckers ate up the lies and ran with them, just like the swine told them to do. Fucking stupid, clueless, useless motherfuckers that they are!

But goddamn, I digress! American forces and British forces and a couple of Australians said, “bombs away in Iraq! Bomb them into freedom! They want democracy and goddamn it that’s what they’re gonna get if we have to kill over a million Iraqis to get it done. It’ll all be worth it in the end!”

So, Iraq was bombed to smithereens, Saddam Hussein was captured and killed. American contractors saturated Iraq and began making billions. U.S. soldiers were used to train Iraqi security forces because somebody had better be protecting that goddamn oil, Black Gold, Iraq’s Prime. And so now we come to this, “Iraq appears on the brink of a violent ethno-sectarian divide between Sunnis, Shi’ite and Kurds that poses the greatest security risk that the country, and the region, has seen since the U.S. invaded in 2003.”

“The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, whose name alone indicates the breadth of its goals, has gained control of an estimated 10 percent of Iraq’s territory since its lightning strike on the northern city of Mosul earlier this week. The group’s leaders indicate that they want nothing less than complete domination of Iraq and the eradication of its Shi’ite majority, which they deem apostates. In a direct threat to Shi’ites, ISIS spokesman Abu Mohamad al-Adnani urged his fighters in a radio address on Thursday to march on the “filth-ridden” Shi’ite-city of Karbala and on “Najaf, the city of polytheism” — and home to Shi’ism’s major center of learning.”

Did the U.S. really think that it could stop centuries of hate between the different sectarian groups that has now spiralled out of control and since there is no dictator there to squash one group’s attempts to eradicate another, this violence will escalate to an all out civil war?

What is going down in Iraq is not much different from what went down in America. America erupted into civil war, pitting one group against another, states seceded from the union. One group squashed the other, the slaves were supposedly freed only to have one form of slavery exchanged for another. This group, that group, the other group. A group over here, a group over there, what the fuck? So, how then can we invade another country and then proceed to attempt to show them the way, the truth and the light towards a better tomorrow for everyone when they’ve got a group here, a group there, everywhere a group, group and each group wants to dominate the other? Hypocrisy becomes no one and most definitely NOT an entire nation, but America is synonymous with hypocrisy, always has been and always will be.

So now, we’re back in Iraq. Why? What could we possibly accomplish now that we’ve thus far been unable to accomplish? Every single time the U.S. has by way of military intervention, invaded Iraq; only death, destruction, corruption, hatred, blame and terrorism has been the outcome. The so-called militant groups that have taken over key cities have the use of weapons and vehicles because the U.S. left them behind for the Iraqi security forces to use to enforce stability in Iraq. Gotta take care of that goddamn oil! And capitalism needs expansion. We have armed the ‘rebels’ and made a bad situation, worse. American tax dollars are funding the chaos that is now ongoing in Iraq. Once again, we have the blood of an entire country on our hands and everywhere you turn, veterans are bemoaning their sacrifice, wondering why the hell they were ever there. You enlisted, now get over it. You contributed to that shit and now it’s not about you. You made a choice to enlist and get shipped out so don’t now turn around and wail and whine about your “in vain sacrifice.” It just doesn’t cut any ice now. Shut up about it and go seek help at the VA or better yet, call Obama so that he can tell you to “go fuck yourself!” And remember,

O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev’ry gain divine!

O Beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

So, fucking pray to God to shed his grace on thee; oh hero, oh patriot, oh liberator! Thanks to America, ain’t every goddamn body feeling free from sea to fucked up sea??!!! Like hell!

Update: The sectarian violence might not be real. It may indeed be a fabrication, another lie. According to one of my readers, the different sects have been getting along in Iraq for centuries unlike what has been stated by me in this essay. So hell! I don’t fucking know what’s real anymore. I’m going to have to pinch my own ass to make sure its real and not a hologram, goddamn! Shall we read between the lies and propaganda especially since we already know that big lies have been spread about Iraq before and they certainly have no problem continuing down that road. But whatever is going down in Iraq, the U.S. has no fucking business there and doing nothing but contributing to the problem if not outright causing it, much like the situation in Ukraine. We ALL know who’s behind that shit stirring and it ain’t as if we’ve got all roses and sunshine in this shithole called, America. We just can’t mind our own goddamn business much to the detriment of whose business it is we are minding at the moment. The people of Iraq, AGAIN, have my sincere sympathy because it seems that America ain’t hardly finished fucking with Iraq. The only thing America wants to do is to liberate Iraq from its oil supplies and shove capitalism down its throat! And if Iraq is shoving back against that shit, I say, “more power to them!”

  1. “Did the U.S. really think that it could stop centuries of hate between the different sectarian groups that has now spiralled out of control…”…your post offers an incisive commentary on the atrocities the U.S. has committed in Iraq. I would caution that the mythology of sectarian rivalry is part of the narrative the Western powers use to justify “democracy building in the middle east.

    Iraqi writer Sami Ramadani is trying to dispel the sectarian violence myth: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jun/16/sectarian-myth-of-iraq

    Good to have you back, Shelby.

    1. Thank you Jeff and if I stand corrected, why I would much prefer it. I looked far and wide but I guess I did not look far enough for someone, anyone to tell me that the sectarian rivalry is not real. I could find nothing and so it led me to believe that that was indeed the case. I would be happy to be proved wrong. And I do thank you for that link.

      The shits that run America would just love for all of us to believe the continued lies and propaganda to further their agenda. I’ll not be a party to that. I shall post an update.

      Again, I thank you for cluing me in! And it is good to be back!

  3. Great, well-researched article, Shelby. You sum up pretty clearly the lies and deceit driving current US policy in the Middle East and the gullibility of the American public in being sucked in by psychological propaganda and manipulation.

    It’s also my understanding that Shia and Sunni Muslims lived in harmony (despite extreme repression by Saddam Hussein on the Shia community) prior to the US invasion. The US military deliberately stirred up the sectarian violence by causing many Sunni Muslims to be fired from their jobs and acting like the Ku Klux Klan in many communities and enacting forced segregation – making laws that Shia and Sunni were no longer allowed to live in the same neighborhoods.

    The US did the same thing in Yugoslavia under Bill Clinton – deliberately stirring up ethnic hatred between Serbians and Muslims. I worked with Serbian victims of (Nazi) Croatian atrocities in Seattle who talked about their Muslim neighbors hiding them from the Croats.

    Then you have the other problem that the US is actively collaborating with Saudia Arabia and Qatar in financing and arming ISIS and similar militant groups to overthrow the Shia-led governments in Syria and Iraq.

    1. Thank you for that most thought provoking and enlightening comment Dr. Bramhall. You always have something valid to add. I will say this, one day, this country will reap what it has sown. We will get what’s coming to us and it won’t happen soon enough to suit me. We spread hate and fear and terror wherever we go and then put it out there that other countries are formulating terrorist groups when we’re behind it ALL! We are the terrorists! We’ve always been the terrorists and we always will be the terrorists. We are terrorizing the entire goddamn world and the world just keeps taking Amerikkka’s shit up the ass! The world needs to collectively put paid to this shit! But either way, what’s coming to U.S. is coming! Of that, I have no doubt!

      Thank you again for that spot-on comment. Much appreciated!

    Shelby this post is seminal! Thank you for the eloquent summation, poetry to my ears. You already know the real truth… whatever agenda US pursues, it’s all about exploitation. The Islamic sects may be uniting to expel the West from it’s lands, of course our oily overlords can’t have any of that shit so they call on the MSM and US led military machine to spin us a nice neat pretext to invade… again. Correct me if I’m wrong, technically, isn’t Iran suppose to be a sovereign nation? Isn’t it “unconstitutional” to invade other nations? Has the US ever followed the Constitution since it’s inception? Slavery was still around after the members of the Constitutional Convention signed on September 17, 1787, then came the bill of rights. US continued to oppress the native Americans, annexed (land grabbed) Texas during the Mexican-American war in 1845, annexed Hawaii in 1900 by staging a military coup and overthrowing the Hawaiian Queen, controlled Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines after the Spanish-American war, coerced Cuba from Spain which relinquished all claim of sovereignty over to US with title to Cuba, 1898, during the Spanish–American War, Puerto Rico was invaded by the United States with a landing at Guánica. After WWI US grabbed Samoa, Virgin Islands, Wake Island, after WWII US installed military bases around the world to control “sovereign” partners. Ever since WWII, the US has been militarily engaged in 37 countries, disrupting economies, regime changes, assassinations, installing puppet gov’t. Trafficking drugs, arms, children, women, body parts… HELL we’re worse than the Vatican, the seat of the Devil himself. But of course everyone knows that distinction belongs to the hellhounds in Washington. Man we’re brutal, no saving grace, no redemption here no sir. Keep up the great work Shelby , u’r post should be the Re-blog read around the world!!

    1. Thank you so much for the re-blog! As you can see, I added an update because I don’t want to add to the disinformation out there and spread falsehoods about what is going down in Iraq. I am thankful to Jeff for enlightening me on what he has come across in his readings. In my poem, “We Are The Terrorists,” I stated this and I quote,

      “The guilty are the innocent, you’re so easy to deceive.
      The truth is hard to take and so you won’t believe.”

      I need to heed those words because we all know that the lamestream media is a corporate whorehouse just as Washington is. We have to do our own research if we ever hope to come close to finding out the truth because lies and propaganda are fed to us daily and many people eat it up because they want to. They don’t want to know the truth because then they would no longer be blameless in allowing their government carte blanche in its never ending rampage of terror across this planet, destroying everything and everyone in its wake. Oh yes, we ARE the terrorists! And anybody that dares to strike back against the empire is set up just as the empire is trying to set up Iraq and Iran and Russia and Venezuela and the list goes on and on. The empire must be stopped! If only the rest of the world would get a clue and take action. That is the only way!

      1. Truthfully, the rest of the world’s just waiting for the “Empire” to implode, to collapse under it’s own weight of debt and corruption. US is a mad dog with nuclear rabies. Best to contain the beast and let it die a slow and painful death. These maniacs in Washington want mutual annihilation, taking everyone down with them. It requires patience and strategy to put down a rabid beast. Putin has the restraint, cool collected mind to do the job right. Just keep exposing the tyrant, the truth will invariably come out.

  5. Well, I must say that Vladimir Putin has shown tremendous restraint, all things considered. We are imploding, that is for sure, but how many people must we take down with us before our eventual collapse? That is what saddens me because the shits that run this sinking, stinking shithole barge know that their moment to shine is almost over and that is why it seems that they’ve ramped up their campaign of terror all across the world. How many more innocent men, women and children have to suffer before America falls under ‘its own weight of debt and corruption’? The innocents deserve to live and not get caught up in the warmongers desire for the annihilation of all simply because they know their time is coming. I just hate to see so much bloodshed of innocent people.
