Viewing Iraq War NEWS articles 376 through 450 of 1126

December 23, 2005

Soldier Investigated in Italian's Death - Rome prosecutors are investigating the March 4 death of Nicola Calipari, who was killed by U.S. gunfire near a checkpoint as he headed to the Baghdad airport with Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena, who was held hostage by militants for a month.

December 22, 2005

Sunni Arabs Call Iraq Election Fraud - Sunni Arabs alleged Tuesday that last week’s parliamentary elections were fraudulent, especially in Baghdad province, and they said if the irregularities are not corrected, new balloting must be held in Iraq’s largest electoral district.

Saddam accuses White House of lying - Barzan, Saddam's half-brother and co-defendant, repeatedly interrupted the court, protesting at one stage that much of what he was saying was being edited out of video footage of the trial which is being broadcast on televisions with a 20-minute delay.

December 21, 2005

After the Iraq election: Washington steps in to shape the next government - The composition of the next Iraqi government will not...be primarily determined by the votes that were cast on December 15. Rather, the regime in Baghdad will be decided by dealing-making and US arm-twisting to ensure that its leading figures implement Washington’s demands. Above all, US plans involve opening up the Iraqi oil industry to foreign investors, crushing the anti-occupation insurgency and establishing permanent American military bases to extend US influence more broadly in the Middle East.

The reappearance of (some of) the "Disappeared" - These 24 people should have been freed in December 2004 (not that they ever should have been in jail), but remained jailed (and, based on what we know of other cases, quite likely in solitary confinement) for nearly a full year in order to "ease the political pressure." I wonder if they agreed to sacrifice a year of their lives for that noble goal.

December 20, 2005

US increases air attacks in Iraq - The latest figures released by US Central Command show a dramatic rise in the number of air raids carried out in Iraq.

The Release of "Dr. Anthrax" - On Saturday, eight "high value" Iraqis held without charge for over two years by the United States were released.They included Dr Huda Ammash, a distinguished internationally renowned, environmental biologist, Professor at Baghdad University, whose earned her PhD at the University of Missouri. Arrested by US troops, this brave, gentle woman suddenly became "Mrs Anthrax" and featured on America's assinine playing cards of their "most wanted", in the wild west, last chance saloon, Iraq became after April 2003.

December 19, 2005

War in Iraq a crime, say legal experts - Leaders of the United States, Britain and Australia are criminals who have committed crimes against humanity and should be hauled up and tried for war crimes, according to two law professors.

The Crimes of U.S. "Democracy" - As the Occupation of Iraq is approaching three years, the mass murder of Iraqi civilians is not questioned, but normalised in Western conscience. President Bush reached the stage where he is able to make his own figure of Iraqi deaths, with no remorse or sadness. The war was not the result of "wrong intelligence"; the war was an illegal act of aggression, and a premeditated mass murder. "Democracy" is used as a tool to manipulate the public and justify war crimes.

December 18, 2005

The endless looting of Iraq - Since the invasion and occupation of Iraq, Western corporate media have deceptively reported and portrayed the Occupation as a necessary vehicle to "spread democracy" and "fight terrorism"; however the carving up of Iraq's wealth and oil assets is deliberately avoided. The media hype over "reconstruction effort" and illegitimate elections is a cover up for the colonisation of Iraq and Iraq's economy.

December 17, 2005

The Corporate Media and Sunday's Elections in Bolivia - The problem for the U.S. backed oligarchy in Bolivia is that the indigenous people have steadily become more educated and understand as never before what their puppet governments have done to them.

December 16, 2005

Iraqi election to rubber-stamp continued US occupation - US ambassador "will remain the critical behind-the-scenes power," says New York Times

December 15, 2005

Disco Inferno - In Qaim, near the Syrian border, Newsweek found American soldiers blasting Metallica's "Enter Sandman" at detainees in a shipping crate while flashing lights in their eyes. Near Falluja, three Iraqi journalists working for Reuters were seized by the 82nd Airborne. They charged that "deafening music" was played directly into their ears while soldiers ordered them to dance. And back in Mosul, Haitham al-Mallah described being hooded, handcuffed and delivered to a location where soldiers boomed "extremely loud (and dirty) music" at him. Mallah said the site was "an unknown place which they call 'the disco.'" Disco isn't dead. It has gone to war.

Serial Killer Confesses to 30,000 Murders; Receives Applause - "I done kilt me 10 times as many as old Osama ever done," Exults Bush

December 14, 2005

Iraq elections: a democratic façade for a US puppet state - The entire US-controlled political process this year—the January 30 elections for a transitional government, the drafting of a new constitution and the referendum on October 15—has been aimed at giving the veneer of legal legitimacy to the plunder of the country’s oil and gas and the formation of a puppet government that will sanction an indefinite US military presence in Iraq.

After December 15, Iraq will be at mercy of US corporations - If George W. Bush's policies on Iraq are mystifying, fret not -- there's a method to his organized chaos after all.

Ignoring the Air War - Why is the media not reporting crucial information about U.S. bombing runs in heavily-inhabited parts of Iraq?

What's happening to the Iraqi academics and intellectuals? - The most striking fact is that the majority of those killed were not sciencists (thus targeted for the alleged knowledge of Iraq’s weapon’s programme) but were involved in field of humanities (such as law, geography and history). The motives for these assassinations are unknown.

December 12, 2005

December 10, 2005

Britain "trying to stall $1.3bn theft inquiry that could hurt Allawi's election chances" - The government wants to postpone the investigation to help its favoured candidate Iyad Allawi, the former prime minister, in the election on 15 December. The money disappeared during his administration.

Iraq: The New Heroin Route - Opiates - and cannabis - produced in Afghanistan transit through Iraq before being distributed in Europe. Their consumption is growing in Baghdad and elsewhere...narcotics seem to stubbornly want to surge through the wake of the American Army.

December 9, 2005

Notes From A Lost War: 20,000 Resistance Soldiers: 2000 Resistance Attacks A Month - "This insurgency has got roots, it's got money, and it's got motivation," says a U.S. intelligence official, in an assessment echoed by military officers and insurgent leaders alike. "And the life span of this insurgency could be years."

Saddam’s trial: A comedy show - Instead of a requirement that the former Iraqi President’s guilt be proved, there is an assumption of Saddam’s guilt that pervades the American media. And there is a very strong reason for that- It serves as a secondary rationale for the U.S. illegal war on Iraq, with the argument that "no one can say that Iraq isn’t better off without Saddam Hussein."

Biopiracy and GMOs: Fate of Iraq's agriculture - While the Iraqi people are struggling to end the U.S. military Occupation and its associated violence, the fate of their food sources and agricultural heritage is being looted behind closed doors. Unless the colonisation of Iraq ends, the U.S. Occupation of Iraq will continue to have lasting and disastrous effects on Iraq's economy and Iraq's ability to feed its people.

December 8, 2005

Acts of defiance against war turned ordinary people into criminals - In three different British courtrooms yesterday, three ordinary people stood accused of three very different crimes, but all based simply on their opposition to the war in Iraq.

Saddam's lawyers threatened at Baghdad Airport - Three men threatened Saddam Hussein’s chief lawyer as he boarded a plane from Baghdad to Jordan today, and they were removed from the flight, said the Iraqi lawyer and his colleague, ex-US. Attorney General Ramsey Clark.

The Plan to Steal Iraq's Oil - "PSAs are effectively immune from public scrutiny and lock governments into economic terms that cannot be altered for decades..."

US army drops Iraq murder charges - The officer, 2nd Lt Erick Anderson, 26, was charged in 2004 after two soldiers under his command alleged he gave permission to kill Iraqi civilians.

In Defending Hussein, an American Contrarian Seeks to Set the Historical Record Straight - At his trial, Mr. Hussein is charged with crimes against humanity in the killing of 148 men and teenage boys from the Shiite town of Dujail, north of Baghdad, after an assassination attempt against Mr. Hussein there in 1982. But Mr. Clark suggested that Mr. Hussein's secret police had reason to act harshly against Shiite assassins who, he said, almost certainly had political links to Shiite-ruled Iran, then in the early stages of an eight-year war with Iraq. He compared the actions of Mr. Hussein's secret police with the muscular behavior of an American president's security detail.

Najaf mob tries to assassinate Allawi with shoes? - Who to believe?

Hidden in Plane Sight: US Media Dodging Air War in Iraq - Major US news outlets are dodging the extent of the Pentagon's bombardment from the air, an avoidance all the more egregious because any drawdown of US troop levels in Iraq is very likely to be accompanied by a step-up of the air war.

Iraqis turn to pills to escape their hard reality - For Ali, 18, his pills allow him to forget his problems. "I float along in another world," he said. "The unbearable conditions of daily life, whether in society or in my family, pushed me to find an escape," he added.

December 4, 2005

IRAQ / THE GRIM BIG PICTURE: America has sold its soul for black gold - A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves: Edward R Murrow

Iyad Allawi: ‘A man of the Shadows’ - Allawi is promoted by the U.S. and British government for the upcoming December elections, because he fits Western image of the "educated technocrat" who serves Western interests at the expense of the Iraqi people. Allawi provides the best Arab façade of acting on behalf of his masters.

IRAQ: Where People Can't Afford Their New Democracy - Capitalism is alive and well in Iraq. With a 70% unemployment rate, soaring housing costs, and late or non-existent government rations driving up the prices of food staples and energy necessities, the Iraqi people are ‘just lovin it’.

Iraq starts to break up: Kurdish Oil Deal Shocks Iraq's Political Leaders - A Norwegian company begins drilling in the north without approval from Baghdad.

That's just for starters.

Hard Rain: Towards a Greater Air War on Iraq? - Recently, news reports in US and European newspapers have suggested that Washington and London are considering a major reduction in their forces in Iraq...most of these reports don't bother to state that if the troops are pulled back from the front and brought home, the Pentagon plans to replace their combat capability with air power.

A criminal process - Just before the U.S. forces attacked Qaim last 29 August, a thriving town of 150,000 people in western Iraq, they cordoned it off, cut electricity, water and food supplies.

Ludicrous al-Qaeda Plot to Kill Saddam Judge - In Bushzarro world, where Saddam “dead-enders” have morphed into wild-eyed al-Qaeda Muslims, you need a scorecard just to keep track of the convoluted twists and turns of the story as the Pentagon and the neocons make it up as they go along.

Torture and Extrajudicial Killings in Iraq - The US, largely through the CIA, has a long history of involvement with genocidal intelligence operations, from Indonesia under Suharto, through Operation Phoenix in Vietnam, to present-day Colombia.
