Three car bombs exploded in Baghdad the other day in a co-ordinated attack that killed at least 41 people and ended a period of relative calm. The suicide bombings appeared to have been aimed at foreign embassies. However they once again succeeded in killing only civilians. Relative calm I guess that is relative. 20 people were also injured in that relative calm.
There were also numerous bombs discovered around the city but were thwarted. The successful bombings were similar to co-coordinated attacks on Baghdad in August, October and December, when ministries and administrative buildings were struck, causing hundreds of deaths. In January three hotels were the targets.
Also as you know, in another incident this weekend men disguised in official uniforms entered Sufia village south of Baghdad and shot dead 25 people — all of whom were connected to the Sahwa or “awakening” movement. Sahwa has, since 2006, worked with American and Iraqi forces to defeat extremists. This is Nuri Al- Maliki's idea of security? There are still negotiations for a coalition Government but this is Sunni against Shiite, Arab interests against Iran, there will be no coalition Government period! At least 35 killed as triple car bomb hits Baghdad
tuesday At least 7 blasts rip through Baghdad, killing 50 So far 119 killed in a 5 day spree!I have to reiterate something I have said too many times since Bush chose to ignore all warnings of total civil war spreading throughout the entire Middle East so he could attack Iraq and straighten out the middle east as God spoke to him and instructed him to. Knowing we are hearing Rumors of Israel attacking Iran by years end and how that will unite Iran I have to wonder how that will further alter the breakdown in Iraq? Will they unite against Israel? Us?
You know I firmly believe and have said so a million times by now that since 9/11 everything was construed to allow Bush to gain the power he needed to prosecute his new order not just in the Middle East but on the entire world! He diverted from Afghanistan to get back into the Middle East with the goal of setting up a larger safety zone for Israel and going after Iran. Both will fail! It has long been my contention that coming to Israel's aid once they attack Iran will be our in to Iran!
The verdict is still out on Iran but an attack by Israel will unite them and would create hell for us in the Middle East. My claims of Bush wanting a Korea style force in Iraq that would result in a Custer's last stand in Iraq is right now in the balance and getting closer every day. It is time to get out! It is dead wrong thinking that Iraqi forces are competent enough to hold off Sunni insurgents, Shiite militias and other internal threats to the Iraqi government or that there will be equality.
There is no way! What about the Kurds who want their autonomy and they do not want to share their oil fields period. Nuri Al-Maliki wants that issue resolved and it will never be. Knowing that, Al-Maliki really concerns me saying we can stay after 2011 if the Iraqis require further training and support. Iraq PM admits US troops may stay
Bush has created a hell on earth for Iraq that he calls liberty and success with promises to spread it throughout the entire Middle East Sunni against Shiite. Bush had long wanted a Korea style force in Iraq to secure the peace! That will never work in Iraq or the Middle East! Planting our military in the middle of the mess Bush has created out of the Middle East because of his failed Democratization program is going to be a Custer's Last Stand on a grand scale if we are still there when this breaks open! Looking at the war cabinet Obama has amassed I am going to say at this point that this is going to happen even under a President Obama.
