It has become obvious to any international crime watcher
that the new Iraq has entered a dangerous phase of anti-American activities and
must suffer the consequences. In effect, the Nouri al-Maliki government has
allied itself with the dreaded Axis-of-Evil. Just look at the record.
The new Iraq government is controlled principally by Dawa, a
Shiite Islamic Party. The Dawa Party is propelling Iraq towards the
establishment of an Islamic Republic, similar to that of the Axis of Evil�s
most prominent member, the Islamic Republic of Iran. And, let�s not be fooled
by the manipulative manner in which the Iraqi government pretends to have been
democratically elected. Recall Hamas.
The new Iraq government has a member of parliament, Jamal Jafaar Mohammed ali Ebrahimi, who is a known
terrorist. Jamal isn�t a retired terrorist, or someone who is only passing
through Iraq for a physical check-up. He has been sentenced to death in
absentia by a court in Kuwait for having planned the attacks on the US and
French embassies in Kuwait in 1983 that left five Americans dead. Mr Jamal was
elected to Parliament in 2005 as a part of the Shiite coalition that now
governs Iraq. The U.S. government has declared that any nation that houses
terrorists is a terrorist nation. Know them by their friends.
president and prime minister have conveniently overlooked the formation of
death squads that have terrorized the civilian population. Although estimates
of the killings vary, they seem to exceed the worst excesses of the Taliban and
any previous Iraq regime -- which is quite serious. Iraqi police recently
arrested an Iraqi health minister (name not provided) for supplying funds for
one of these infamous death squads. The arrest came too late. People are
dominated government is definitely allied with Iran, a sworn enemy of the
United States. Iran has promised one billion dollars in assistance to maintain
the new Iraq government. It is well known that Iran is preparing to manufacture
weapons of mass destruction (where have we heard that before?) and is a threat
to the entire Middle East region (where have we heard that before?). Any nation
allied with Iran must be considered an enemy of the world.
The New York Times has certified the pro-Hezbollah and
anti-Israel position of the new Iraq government.
BAGHDAD, July 19, 2006 � Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki of
Iraq on Wednesday forcefully denounced the Israeli attacks on Lebanon, marking a
sharp break with President Bush�s position and highlighting the growing power
of a Shiite Muslim identity across the Middle East. --NEW YORK TIMES
U.S. policy defines any leader who supports Hezbollah and
denounces Israel as either a terrorist, an anti-Semite, mentally incompetent,
part of the alignment against the USrael (U.S. and Israel) peace initiative, or
all the above.
The Iraqi government
has created two million refugees in the biggest ethnic cleansing since World
War II. The semi-permanent, if not permanent, exodus of Iraqis to foreign lands
compares to the ethnic cleansings in Kosovo, Bosnia, and several African
nations. The U.S. and its NATO partners have reacted aggressively to previous
ethnic cleansings. Will the new Iraq be treated differently?
Present-day Iraq is
infested with members and supporters of al-Qaeda. After the installation of the
new Iraqi government, al-Qaeda militants crossed the border and entered Iraq
with impunity. The new Iraqi government has been ineffective in reducing the
al-Qaeda presence, which is equivalent to surrendering to al-Qaeda
More than 3,000
Americans have been killed in Iraq, many more wounded, and dozens have been
kidnapped, tortured, and murdered. The failure of the new Iraqi government to
protect Americans in Iraq is either incompetence or collusion with militant
elements. There is valid evidence for both explanations. In either case, the
new Iraqi government must be held responsible for its failure to protect
The new Iraqi government has been unable to protect against
suicide bombings that have take the lives of Americans in Iraq. The number of
suicide bombings that have destroyed American lives in Iraq far exceeds the
only two suicide bombings that occurred in Israel after the democratic election
of the Palestinian Hamas government Hamas operatives were not involved in
either of the two suicide bombings, and the Hamas government did not have
sufficient power or control to prevent the bombings. Nevertheless, Hamas has
been sanctioned and accused of complicity in the two suicide bombings in
Israel. Characterizing Hamas as responsible for the attacks on Israelis
signifies that the new Iraqi government is even more responsible for the
suicide attacks against Americans in Iraq. The new Iraqi government should
therefore be treated in the same manner as Hamas is being treated.
The evidence for
including the new Iraq in the Axis of Evil is obvious. President Bush should
perform his duty and rid the world of the new blot on the face of the global
map. After accomplishing that task, he should make an example of those who
enabled the new corrupt and evil Iraqi government to gain power. The U.S.
president is obliged to remove from power those who supplied the funds and
weapons that support the new Iraqi government.
A challenge to U.S. President George W. Bush: President
Bush: Look in the mirror, and ask yourself, �Aren�t persons war criminals who
are responsible for the destruction of Iraq, the deaths of more than 100,000
Iraqis, the wounding and hospitalization of many more, atrocities in prison
camps, rapes and murders of Iraqi civilians, the creation of 2 million
displaced persons and refugees and the destabilization of the Middle East?
Shouldn�t these war criminals be subjected to international criminal court
