The US Trident in Iraq

Washington is currently trying to work out what to do with Iraq. Condoleezza Rice once promised to transform the US-occupied Arab country into a «torch of democracy». And now Joe Biden is once again promising the Iraqi people democracy, but no longer for all and no longer throughout the whole country, just in parts. Sunnis from Isis are promising their own kind of democracy, and they have already shown exactly how it will be: either join them or die. For Iraqi Shiites, meanwhile, it would be more democratic to overthrow their leader and select a new American protege. For the Kurds, it would be abandoning federalism and adherence to the constitution of a unified state. Thus, the US policy regarding Iraq has the feeling of a trident...

Iraq Partition, US Way

Iraq was the first phase of the US Greater Middle East plan being shaped on the world map. Even before the 2003 invasion, Washington wanted to partition the country into three parts: Sunni, Shia and Kurdish. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (alternatively translated as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, abbreviated ISIL, ISIS) offensive to capture a large part of Iraqi land is nothing else but part of this plan. Speaking formally the White House calls on the Kurds not to sever ties with Baghdad and promises military aid to the Shiite – dominated al-Maliki government. The United States also talks about the possibility of joining efforts with Iran to counter the terrorists, but in practice it sticks to the policy of instigating chaos to make Iraq a divided state...

Prince Bandar back in the Driver’s Seat in Riyadh

Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulazia bin Saud is the godfather behind the creation of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), now called the «Islamic State» or «Islamic Caliphate»... Bandar has returned to an influential position advising King Abdullah after being sacked as Saudi intelligence chief last April. Bandar's new title is «adviser to the King and his special envoy»... CIA director John O. Brennan, a Saudophile and former CIA station chief in Riyadh, reportedly played a hand in the restoration of Bandar to a key position in the Saudi government... Bandar's goal is to eliminate the current governments of Syria and Iraq, thus depriving Iran of its only two allies in the region...

Iraqi Kurds Get Serious about Independence in a Region Committed to status quo

The leadership of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) of Iraq, which has all the trappings of an independent state even though a leader of one of its two major clans is nominally president of the Republic of Iraq, has set out on the risky road to full independence... KRG President Massoud Barzani recently asked the Kurdish parliament in Erbil to set a date for an independence referendum. The Iraqi government rejected Barzani’s proposal... The only country that has outwardly championed Kurdistan’s independence is Israel. The Israeli Mossad has long-standing ties with Kurdistan, having trained many of its Peshmerga forces... But Israel has one major problem in exercising domination over an independent or semi-independent Kurdistan. Iran, which Israelis officials theatrically re-state is an «existential» threat to the Jewish state, continues to have greater influence in Kurdistan than do any other regional player...

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Personifies New World Disorder

The recent events in the Middle East, the success of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant on Iraqi battlefields and the promulgation of caliphate on the territories under the organization’s control in Syria and Iraq - how does it all dovetail with the US global interests? Many opponents of Obama, including Republicans, say it’s a failure of US Middle East policy. True, it would be right to say it’s a flop having in mind the mission of maintaining the world order and world supremacy. But remembering Brzezinski and his world disorder, domination and leadership concept the things look quite different...

President Obama Faces Iraqi Conundrum

Obama has nothing to be proud of when it comes to his Middle East policy. One failure after another everywhere you look, it starts to get really eerie. With Libya, Egypt, Syria failures behind, Iraq adds to the list. The US has always sided with those who started unrest while Saudi Arabia was pouring fuel of fire pursuing the dream of using terrorists as a tool for turning the Arab world into the Wahhabi safe haven. The Wahhabi formations used the US support while operating in Syria. Now they are back to Iraq to capture a major part of the territory. As Dick Cheney admitted the United States gave the Middle East away to terrorists who can do as they please and impose their ways on others to the heart’s content…

The resurrection of the neocons

Like proverbial «bad pennies», many of the leading neo-conservative architects of America’s failed interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan are being hauled back in front of television news cameras to comment on the current predicament that Washington finds itself with a surging «Al Qaeda» spinoff attempting to seize control of eastern Syria and western and northern Iraq and transform the area into a radical Islamic «caliphate»... The resurrection of the neo-cons would not be possible without the complicity of their enablers in the corporate media...

Iraq: Need of international consensus

The best part of the US President Barack Obama’s update on Thursday regarding developments in Iraq has been his promise that he will be vigilant about ‘mission creep’ and «American troops are not going to be fighting in Iraq again». Cynics may say this is how all ‘mission creeps’ began, but Obama robustly defended his optimism: «We [US] do not have the ability to simply solve this problem by sending in thousands of troops and committing the kinds of blood and treasure that has already been expended in Iraq». It sounded credible. But then, conditions apply... Obama repeatedly said that a political solution is needed in Iraq...

Iraq: Implications of Full-Blown War

...The US popular opinion views the military campaign in Iraq as a big foreign policy gaffe and opposes any nation’s involvement in new overseas conflicts. Any new military action would be strongly opposed by a majority of Americans. Neither the US, nor NATO can do anything more than air strikes. It makes Iran the only regional player to come to the Iraq’s rescue... The US should think long and hard about the implications of what it does in the Middle East. So far it regional policy has been a miserable failure and the mistakes committed backlash with dire fallout.

MH17 Disaster and American Hoodlums

...The European restraint on the Boeing issue and the situation in Ukraine in general is explained by two main reasons. First, Europe resists the US pressure concerning the imposition of anti-Russian sanctions... The second reason is even more important. It is connected with the history of Europe. While the first reaction of US media was the topic of «pro-Russian» terrorists and recalling the Lockerby terrorist act, Europeans remembered the assassination archduke Franz-Ferdinand is Sarajevo which triggered the First World War. It may be hard to understand for America, but Europe does its best to avoid the repetition of tragic stories of the past... From this point of view, Americans and their puppets in Kiev behave like hoodlums running amuck with a stricken match around a warehouse full of dynamite loudly calling on others to join the mad race...
