Viewing Iraq War NEWS articles 1 through 33 of 33.
- World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz is considering expanding bank operations in Iraq, which would put his agency at the center of rebuilding from a war he helped plan as the Pentagon's former No. 2 official.
- Three Years in Iraq
- The aim is to pacify and remove the public influence on foreign policies.
- ...the Iraqi health care system had indeed been battered beyond recognition by the efforts of the United States and its allies.
- The United States’ invasion and occupation of Iraq has two primary objectives, plus a third that stems from the first two. The first two are oil and "lily pads." The third is to maintain a government or quasi-government to legitimize U.S. access to both. Everything the United States has done in Iraq has ensued from these primary objectives...
- I guess genocide just ain't what it used to be.
- ...the United States, United Nations, Britain, and the "coalition of the killing" are responsible for the death of well over two million people in Iraq (and an incalculable number of others are certain to die in the Middle East and elsewhere from the use of depleted uranium and other toxins).
- During the 1930s and 1940s, the U.S. supported the British occupation of Iraq. Today, the same actors occupy the same stage, but with reversed roles.
- A plan to loot Iraq?
- Three years ago, many of us awoke to see Saddam Hussein’s statue being torn down in Baghdad. The media ate it up.
- ARMY "LOST" CRUCIAL EVIDENCE
- ...it was obvious from day one that this story was false.
- ...the Italian Prime Minister Elect said that he will fulfill his election promise of withdrawing his country´s troops from Iraq.
- How many Iraqis have died as the result of the Anglo-American invasion and occupation of their country remains an unresolved question in the anti-war movement. It is a question the pro-war camp avoids. Yet what more important question is there?
- ...as ignominious defeat looms for Bush's Babylonian folly, some of the key players in fomenting the war are urging that the "Fallujah Option" be applied to an even bigger target: Baghdad.
- The fortress-like compound rising beside the Tigris River here will be the largest of its kind in the world, the size of Vatican City, with the population of a small town, its own defense force, self-contained power and water, and a precarious perch at the heart of Iraq's turbulent future.
- "Al Qaeda in Iraq and its presumed leader, Abu Musab Zarqawi, have conceded strategic defeat and are on their way out of the country, a top U.S. military official contended yesterday," reports the Moonie, er Washington Times.
- The morgue is receiving a minimum of 60 bodies a day and sometimes more than 100, a morgue employee told IPS on condition of anonymity.
- The Zarqawi case is vastly different from these traditional forms of propaganda. It is information-warfare aimed exclusively at the American people with the intention of manipulating their perceptions. It builds the case for war out of whole cloth.
- ...when one considers how far ahead the U.S. is in terms of prison population rates compared to the rest of the world, one can only be stunned by the arrogance of U.S. governments posing as the agents of Freedom, Justice and Democracy. In any comparison with Bush in these terms, Saddam wins hands down, and if the Bush regime wishes to rid the world of "outposts of tyranny," it ought to begin with itself.
- As petrostates around the globe exert increasing command over their energy assets, Iraq is on the verge of ceding theirs to the control of American and British oil companies. If all goes as planned, the oil giants will have performed the heist of the century.
- Pentagon PSYOP Zarqawi Program
- The difference between Saddam Hussein and George Bush is that both signed death warrants but only one of them is in the dock.
- A contractor in Iraq has pleaded guilty to providing money, sex and designer watches to US officials in exchange for more than $US8 million ($10.8 million) in reconstruction contracts.
- President Bush has not fired any of the architects of the Iraq war. In fact, a review of the key planners of the conflict reveals that they have been rewarded – not blamed – for their incompetence.
- Waving canes and white-knuckling their walkers, 18 unrepentant anti-war grannies nixed a plea deal Thursday before going on trial for rallying outside a Times Square recruiting station.
- Description of the 14 Long-Term Bases in Iraq
- At least 100,000 Iraqi civilians have died, most of them at the hands of U.S. forces
- Iraq is subsumed by a wave of violence which radiates directly from the White House. Don’t blame the Iraqis. The world’s most ancient civilization is being systematically obliterated to feed the insatiable greed of Washington warlords and their constituents in the corporate boardrooms across America.
- In order to keep the contrived "war on terror" alive, and pump up its central figure, the dead Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, as a perpetually looming threat, "a rare video" has surfaced, posted on the internet.
- Look at the image...(of) Al-Zarwaqi firing a machine gun. It barely even appears as if the Pentagon went to the trouble of flying to the Nevada desert. This looks more like a shoddy low budget blue screen cut and paste.
- The demonstrators stretched for about 10 city blocks as they headed down Broadway. A police spokesman declined to give an estimate of the size of the crowd, although organizers claimed there were 300,000 people. There were no arrests.
- The U.S. embassy will be more like the Pentagon than like an administrative home of diplomatic activity. Iraq's fate rests with the fate of that embassy, and it is a foreboding, threatening, frightening monument to the stealing of an entire nation, its future, and its soul by a greedy, powerful, heartless, and merciless occupier.
