Viewing Iraq War NEWS articles 301 through 375 of 1126

January 26, 2006

Let history judge - by Scott Ritter - Iraq has come to this: a human and social disaster of enormous scale, where unified central governmental authority is not only non-existent, but unachievable under current conditions.

Grinding Poverty, Insecurity Plague Iraqis: Report - Nearly three years after the US-led invasion-turned-occupation of Iraq, more Iraqis are falling prey to grinding poverty and countless others are terrified in the insecurity-marred country.

January 25, 2006

The Unseen War in Iraq - When troops are cut, we'll still be bombing the hell out of the place

Audit Describes Misuse of Funds in Iraq Projects - A new audit of American financial practices in Iraq has uncovered irregularities including millions of reconstruction dollars stuffed casually into footlockers and filing cabinets, an American soldier in the Philippines who gambled away cash belonging to Iraq, and three Iraqis who plunged to their deaths in a rebuilt hospital elevator that had been improperly certified as safe.

January 24, 2006

Sanitised images hide truth about war, says Fisk - The sanitised images of war broadcast on television are a "lethal weapon" masking atrocities which demonstrate that conflict can "never be justified," an Independent debate was told last night.

Officer "docked pay" for torturing Iraqi to death - The officer was fined $6,000 in salary and was largely restricted to his barracks and workplace for 60 days.

January 23, 2006

More details emerge on Col. Ted Westhusing's "suiciding" in Iraq. - Days before his supposed suicide by a "self-inflicted" gunshot wound in a Camp Dublin, Iraq trailer, West Point Honor Board member and Iraqi police and security forces trainer Col. Ted Westhusing reported in e-mail to the United States that "terrible things were going on Iraq." He also said he hoped he would make it back to the United States alive.

January 22, 2006

Saddam lawyers seek to try Bush, Blair - The lawyers want to try them on charges of illegally invading and occupying a sovereign country.

Nothing depleted about "depleted uranium" - Iraqi and visiting doctors, and a number of news reports, have reported that birth defects and cancers in Iraqi children have increased five- to 10-fold since the 1991 Gulf War and continue to increase sharply, to over 30-fold in some areas in southern Iraq. Currently, more than 50 percent of Iraqi cancer patients are children under the age of 5, up from 13 percent. Children are especially vulnerable because they tend to play in areas that are heavily polluted by depleted uranium.

Silencing the tyrant: Saddam's Soviet-style show trial is a travesty of justice designed to justify Iraq invasion - Dead dictators tell no tales. If allowed to fully testify, Saddam would reveal the whole sordid story of America's long, intimate collaboration with his regime, and how the U.S. and British governments of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher encouraged, armed and financed Iraq to invade Iran.

Halliburton cited in Iraq contamination - Troops and civilians at a U.S. military base in Iraq were exposed to contaminated water last year and employees for the responsible contractor, Halliburton, couldn't get their company to inform camp residents, according to interviews and internal company documents.

A Town Becomes a Prison - The People of Siniyah town 200 km north of Baghdad are angry over a six-mile long sand wall constructed by the U.S. military to check attacks by rebels.

U.S. Policy on Mercenaries in Iraq Reminiscent of '80s - As various news reports come out about Shiite death squads operating within Iraqi police forces — which are being trained by U.S. soldiers — one can’t help but wonder if it’s a throwback to American policies in Latin America in the 1980s.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is a mere tool of the powerful and a servile lackey of the rich. - Where was the ICRC when Fallujah was leveled to the ground… half millions of its inhabitants have become refugees in their own homeland. Fallujah, the martyr city, where the US bloodthirsty invaders used combat gasses, napalm...and weapons of mass destruction…Where is the ICRC while the US democratic killers still bomb hospitals, kill patients and doctors all together and shoot on ambulances.

January 14, 2006

Fifteen Years of War: And Who's Better Off? - The bad news is that they aren't finished. Most of the folks who run this country, no matter which major party they claim to belong to, think that they can win their various wars and start new ones, continue to privatize the government for the benefit of their friends (Social Security is next, mark my words), spy on and jail people at will, and then tell us that they're doing it for our own good.

Fly Boys and Lie Boys: Smart-Bombing Iraqi Families While They Sleep - Even the most accurately-delivered 500 pounder cannot destroy a building without damaging adjacent houses and killing people therein. Anyone who imagines or declares that this is possible is a liar or a moron or both.

January 13, 2006

Propaganda in Iraq - Why are people so shocked about the Propaganda material used by the US in Iraq. The declassified documents show that the US has been using propaganda material in the Middle East since the 1950s. In fact the last colonial masters of Iraq the British used the same tactics to generate favourable public opinion regarding the British Occupation of Iraq.

January 12, 2006

'I'm a door kicker-inner,' one young Marine blurted out - to the dismay of his superiors - "Why can’t we live together in peace?", read the graffiti written on a wall in Fallujah by a weary American soldier. Next to it a colleague had scrawled: "Die ragheads die!"

A Formula for Slaughter - The Real Rules of Engagement in Iraq

January 11, 2006

The Highly Informative Hissy Fit of L. Paul Bremer III - Bremer presents himself as a gosh-darn good egg who just wanted to do what's right but ended up as the tragic victim of vicious circumstances. Yet the fact is that Bremer played a key role in creating those circumstances, and at every point assidiously carried out his primary duty: laying open the ruined nation to the rapacious appetities of Bush's corporate cronies. He is, to put it bluntly, a war criminal...

Judge Demands Police Video of Grandmothers' Protest - ...the videotape showed that at least one person had been able to walk past the women into the recruitment center.

January 10, 2006

Of Plunder and Yankee Karma - The sign has been put out front: "Iraq is open for business."

"My Uncle was murdered" - Upon stealing the $10,000 that were in his coat pocket the troops that the Americans are so proud of and support, found that he did not have any weapons or explosives and then they dumped his body at the local hospital and walked away with his money.

Neocons Considered Planting WMD Evidence in Iraq? - ...the notorious Office of Special Plans didn’t just stovepipe cherry-picked "intelligence" to the White House and press.

US troops seize award-winning Iraqi journalist - American troops in Baghdad yesterday blasted their way into the home of an Iraqi journalist working for the Guardian and Channel 4, firing bullets into the bedroom where he was sleeping with his wife and children.

January 8, 2006

US Propaganda vs. Iraqi Reality - It appears as though the Cheney administration will soon “redeploy” thousands of US troops out of Iraq. While several permanent US military bases are under construction there as I type this, the Capital Hill Cabal, desperate to paint the Iraq disaster in a glorious hue, are working their pundits and spokespeople overtime to convince the ill-informed they have not failed dismally in every aspect of their illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq.

January 7, 2006

Iraq War Could Cost US Over $2 Trillion, says Nobel Prize-Winning Economist - The real cost to the US of the Iraq war is likely to be between $1 trillion and $2 trillion (£1.1 trillion), up to 10 times more than previously thought...

It Doesn’t Add Up - President’s Estimate of Iraqi War Dead Doesn’t Mesh With Hopkins Scientists’ Figures.

Air America - Get ready to see a lot more of this, because Bush has finally settled on an "exit strategy" for Iraq: he's going to bomb his way out.

January 5, 2006

Evidence of Forgery at the election day - At the election day,Iraq’s government issued vehicles ban on the streets yet...

"Iraqi resistance delivers justice for the Red Indians" - Despite its massive military and economic power, the United States is destined to lose the war in IRAQ. The reason is simple: The world’s superpower has a history of cut and run. It also has a legacy of injustice from the very beginning of its history, which was based on the extermination of the Red Indians who originally owned the plateaus, the mountains, the rivers and the valleys to themselves.

Why the War is Sexist (And Why We Can't Ignore Gender Any More) - The tendency to devalue the enemies' lives is reinforced by not only racist but also sexist ideologies -- history is made by "our boys," and "enemy women's" deaths are not even acknowledged.

January 4, 2006

The media and the "air war" - It wasn't long ago that a Washington Post article on death from the air in Iraq included not one but more than a half dozen "claims" by the military about the great pains they take to spare civilian casualties, how the Iraqis are always exaggerating, and so on.

The Guerilla War for Iraq’s Oil - As America continues to tighten its grip on the world’s dwindling hydrocarbon resources, we can expect that the successes of the Iraqi resistance will offer a model to the other disparate groups who have no chance of beating the United States in open battle, but hope to bring the empire to its knees by making the costs of war too great to sustain.

January 2, 2006

New Year Resolution: Shock and Awe to Replace Troops in Iraq - As the new year unfolds, our war crimes complicit corporate media will tell us Bush is "drawing down" the number of troops in Iraq. In fact, the tempo and frequency of mass murder will increase, as the Straussian neocons have no desire to abandon their plan to decimate Muslim society.

Hard Facts - The invasion was an arbitrary military action inspired by a series of lies upon lies and gross manipulation of the media and therefore of the public; an act intended to consolidate American military and economic control of the Middle East masquerading – as a last resort – all other justifications having failed to justify themselves – as liberation. A formidable assertion of military force responsible for the death and mutilation of thousands and thousands of innocent people.

January 1, 2006

CIA-Mossad Sponsored "Rebels" Attack Iran’s Border - It makes perfect sense for the CIA to be attracted to Iran’s Baluchistan province.

French Engineer Abducted by Fake Iraqi Terrorists - We are expected to believe the Iraqi resistance is not only vicious, but also uninterested in repairing the damage inflicted on its country by the neocon invasion. It runs around abducting Christian peace activists, western journalists, Sudanese and Moroccan embassy employees, and people from countries that opposed Bush’s invasion.

Lights out in Baghdad as power remains erratic - Baghdad is getting only around six hours of electricity a day, down from 11 in October...

Kurds plan to invade South - Kurdish leaders have inserted more than 10,000 of their militia members into Iraqi army divisions in northern Iraq to lay the groundwork to swarm south, seize the oil-rich city of Kirkuk and possibly half of Mosul, Iraq's third-largest city, and secure the borders of an independent Kurdistan.

Latin American mercenaries guarding Baghdad’s Green Zone - War is big money and, like any other business today, security contractors are scouring the globe looking for the cheapest labor so as to maximize their war profiteering.

December 27, 2005

IMF Approves Loan for Iraq: Let the Oil Drilling Begin - Iraq will not be sovereign or independent in the near future, even if President Bush says so. The country’s financial future will instead be dictated by a new colossal economic occupation, complete with ground forces, tanks, foreign military bases and the like -- all thanks to the United States, Britain and the IMF.

The Face and Voice of Civilian Sacrifice in Iraq - In Iraq, nobody knows, and few in authority seem concerned to count, just how many civilians have been killed and injured.

December 26, 2005

"U.S. offensives target civilians not fighters" - More than 100,000 Iraqi civilians, including women and children, have died in Iraq since the war was launched in March 2003, mostly as a result of airstrikes by the occupation forces, according Iraqi and U.S. public health experts.

Is the US State Department still keeping April Glaspie under wraps? - It is now more than fifteen years since that fateful meeting on July 25, 1990 between then-US Ambassador to Iraq April Glaspie and President Saddam Hussein that the Iraqi leader interpreted as a green light from Washington for his invasion of Kuwait eight days later.

VOTE EARLY AND VOTE OFTEN - Bush hailed the Iraqi elections as a mighty victory. He maintained that Iraq will now become a beacon of democracy in the Middle East. In fact, the elections were even more crooked than the one he manipulated to become president.
