Wave of deadly bombings hits Iraq as we leave Iraq to Bush's Middle East Breakdown, This is going well?
There were multiple explosions around Baghdad including three explosions, in Haifa Street, in Karrada, and in Ahmeriya, injuring 11 people all credited to Al Qaeda. I happen to think it is Iran but with 85 people so far killed in August. Those people are screwed. At least 55 people were killed in about two dozen bombings and shootings, most of them targeting police, across Iraq.
There were incidents:in Kut, south of Baghdad, a suicide car bomber attacked a police station, killing at least 15 people and injuring 84, in Kirkuk, a car bomb killed one person and injured eight, in Falluja, a soldier was killed and 10 people injured when a suicide bomber drove into an Iraqi army convoy, in Tikrit, a roadside bomb killed a policeman and wounded another, in Basra, a car exploded as police towed it from a parking lot, killing one person and injuring eight, in Ramadi, a car exploded as two alleged bombers were working on it, while a second car exploded about 1km away, killing at least two, in Karbala, a suicide car bomb exploded at police checkpoint at the entrance to police station, injuring 30 people Wave of deadly bombings hits Iraq, 13 cities in all and many once considered safe!
Gen Zebari said: "At this point the withdrawal is going well, because they [US troops] are still here. But the problem will start after 2011. The politicians must find other ways to fill the void after 2011. If I were asked about the withdrawal, I would say to politicians: 'The US army must stay until the Iraqi army is fully ready in 2020.'" Why US withdrawal unlikely to change
They will never be ready and are right to be concerned but this civil war and total Middle East breakdown was guaranteed the day Bush attacked Iraq and he knew it! Iraqi's have to be scared to death knowing we will leave them alone to their demise, their civil war and middle east breakdown that will spread throughout the middle east compliments of Bush.
Iraqi forces still frail as US troops head home: Mission accomplished, the middle east breakdown will continue as scheduled. President Barack Obama vowed to make good on his promise to end U.S. combat operations in Iraq by the end of August, despite a dangerous political deadlock in Baghdad and a recent surge in militant violence. Iraqi forces still frail as US troops head home
This is no victory! I have been saying this from day one of this guaranteed failure but for those who have not read it I will again reiterate what Bush knew would happen but ignored to do Gods work and "fix" the Middle East: War-torn Baghdad is the worst, a survey said for its annual survey, Mercer assessed the quality of living in 221 cities worldwide ranking Baghdad #221 the absolute worst. Baghdad ranked 221st, remaining at the bottom of the list with rankings also based on water availability and drinkability, waste removal, quality of sewage systems, air pollution and traffic congestion. The basic necessities of life! vienna is best city to live in, Baghdad worst: study
A 2007 U.S. Report gave Blame to Iraqi's for Bush's Guaranteed Failures!
While we continuously listened to the lies and propaganda that Bush has had many successes in Iraq and that his surge succeeded We already know but many of Bush's declared successes are in fact failures. Low and behold it all boils down to Security fears. What a surprise! What happened to his successful surge? Kill all the Al Qaeda you want they can not still provide the basic needs of life in a successful society.
Isn't that Bush's fault? If he had stayed in Afghanistan as he should have instead of diverting from the war on terror to attack Iraq so he could start implementing his new middle east order, Iraq may have had a Dictator but they would have security, electricity, water, fuel, and a lot more than they have now or will have in the future.
Al Maliki, Alawi, or whoever takes control they cannot and will not bring stability back to Iraq. Despite the political rhetoric it will get a lot worse and then spread throughout the entire middle east. We will never be able to bring services anywhere close to the level they were at when Saddam was in power. It is laughable to think that anyone thought they would be better post Saddam.
The Congressional investigation into reconstruction in Iraq found that six out of eight projects the Bush administration claimed to be a success were falling apart, throwing doubts over the long-term viability of much of the $30 billion program. I have to tell you, the entire program, the surge, Democracy, everything, was guaranteed lost from the get go. What ever is built will be destroyed.
The report which was published 3 years ago but could be today, looked at hospital projects that at last count there was only one capable of operating at all. It does not matter how much money or effort we put into Iraq. Iraqi's as a whole do not want new Iraqi order they want their own version. They want the basic needs of life satisfied and they do not care who supplies them in the end.
Each sect is only concerned with looking out for their own interest and future and as we are told to ignore everyday because it is not "the reality on the ground" reality is much worse! The inspectors found serious plumbing and electrical failures due to looting, equipment lying idle to me primarily because people are scared to death to venture out into the reality Bush has created for them. US report blaming Iraqi's for failures
From the Political system to the oil Industry, Hospitals, electricity, plumbing, security, everything, It will not be turned around and will only get a lot worse before it spreads throughout the entire middle east. Supposedly we are hoping to start withdrawing our troops this year and have them all out by next fall. Regardless of what happens we better stick to that schedule, leave whatever supplies the Iraqi's need, and see just how much they want to live together under a system that will supply their needs. It is in the end up to them!
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. 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.
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 and now Obama has no choice but to let it happen. We are leaving 50,000 troops thereto supposedly train for another year and the way Afghanistan is failing as expected because Bush ignored it to get back into the middle East to create a new (dis)order Iraq. will fail unless we go back and we will not be able to. The Middle East is still a massive disaster that has yet to begin but it is coming closer every day. Don't forget Iran!
