The US and Iraq: The 12th Anniversary of the Bush War & the Future
Sunday, 19 April 2015 16:07

The US invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003 was an ill-conceived and a doomed adventure, it was based on falsehoods and deceptions, which has led to terrible disasters and trepidations to the Iraqis as well as to the Americans.  Now it is time now twelve years later to remember the lessons provided by this terrible adventure, and bring those responsible for this it to account for their actions.  In 2003 the American military on orders from president bush and his accomplices , conducted operation Iraqi freedom, to free the Iraqis from the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein.  After liberating the country, they would initiate a major reconstruction of the country, and the rejuvenation of its moribund institution and its infrastructure, but those were lies and deceptions, because today, 12 years after the invasion, the situation in Iraq is much worse than even under the worst days of Saddam.  It is gripped by an incredible array of very serious problems, and while the Islamic State group is featured as “the issue”, there are  major religious  and ethnic conflicts, massive poverty and crime, and many others which are shaking the country’s foundations, and to make things even more complicated.  As a result of the unfortunate adventure of the Bush administration, the United States itself is facing some very serious problems, but what defies one’s imagination is that those who perpetrated this mayhem have become either mute, or insist that the big picture justified their enterprise, and refusing to apologize, and are insisting on leaving judgment on it to history.

The Hanoudi Letter: the escalating new war; part two
Monday, 23 March 2015 01:14

This update is about the battle to free Tikrit, the birthplace of Saddam Hussein from the jaws of the Islamic fanatics, who call themselves the Islamic State (IS). I am talking about this battle because it is the most recent episode in the escalating new war and the dangers it is posing to the peace and security of the whole world. Tikrit, is an Iraqi city, of about a quarter of a million inhabitants, which is located a 100 mile northwest of Baghdad on the Tigris River, in the heart of the Sunni triangle. The town fell to IS militants last June, during their advance towards Baghdad, after their stunning success in subjugating the second largest city in the country, Mosul. The battle for Tikrit commenced about two weeks ago, when a 30,000 group which is made of mainly Shiite militia, a powerful Iranian crowd from the so called the Quds brigade under the command of General Qassem Suleimani, plus a smaller number of Iraqi army soldiers and very few Sunni fighters from loyal tribes, to wrest control of the city from the hands of the militants, but without the US and its allies. These strange mixtures was able during the first few days of the attack to push the militants from their positions on the outskirts of the city and forced them to aggregate into the center the town, were their guerrilla tactics forced the Iraqi forces to pause and halt their advance.

In my last update to this site, I said that the world is once again is in the throes of a very vicious conflict, a ferocious clash which I called in the  new war, with two major theatres, the first is in the Middle East, which is spearhead by the militant and extremely fundamentalist group, ISIS.  The name which I am going to use now, ISIS burst on the scene very recently and are dominating the news after their successes in Iraq and Syria, which allowed them to control large swathes of land in those two countries and helped them carry out some horrifying atrocities.  A situation which is creating a great backlash against them and is threatening its explosion into a much larger one, but I am also going to talk about the Ukraine crisis, the recent confrontation between the Americans and their allies in Europe, who are backing Ukraine against Russia, creating the most serious crisis between these two adversaries since the days of the cold war, a crisis which adding a lot of fuel to the already highly explosive situation in the Middle East.  I am going to start with few notes on the ISIS and its most recent atrocities.

Our World: The New World War and its Aftermath
Saturday, 24 January 2015 16:30

People all over the world were hoping that the two great wars of the twentieth century, which were real calamities, with millions of deaths and untold number of injuries, and the loss of a great deal of wealth, that those calamities would be the end of war but man is a very strange creature.  Man doesn’t seem to have learned the lessons which history provides, because in less than fifty years the world is once more plunged into a very bloody conflict.  Alas a very different brawl this time, a war, with very different origins and motivations.  It is not about borders and assets, it is a clash between ideas and modes of life which is directed at the Christian west which is run by some extremely militant, fundamentalist Islamic groups, who claim that they are fighting god’s war, [jihad ], against the Christians infidels.  A battle during which they use pretty indiscriminately every lethal weapon they have at the time, with which they have been able to deliver some very big hits to their victims, like the one they have recently engineered in France during which seventeen people were killed in several attacks which started with a massacre at the offices of the satiric Parisian newspaper, Charlie Hebdo during which 12 people including five senior editors were murdered in their office on Friday January 9.  A tragedy which shocked the whole country, and the world, a tragedy to which I will come back again shortly.  I am going to talk about the origin of these murderous organizations and some of their most famous or rather infamous members, and few of their major atrocities.
