American Attempt to Divide Iraq

01 May, 2007

By Tanveer Jafri


The condition of Iraq is going from bad to worst. The Bush administration has very well understood the fact that if America had to face insult after the Vietnam-America war that was the American mission in Iraq. American goodwill got a good shock in the world. If Iraq issue is taken into consideration not only the American public has turned against but the American allies in Iraq mission are also withdrawing there forces one by one from Iraq. On the other hand, the house of representative in America has also passed a bill in which it has applied conditions for further grant of money for Iraq war. Democrat parliamentarians have stated regarding it that unless there is a fixed time limit for the return of American soldier from Iraq, more mony can not be made available for it.

The above condition clearly reveals that at least the democrats and the Republican are face to face, on the Iraq issue. So now the Bush administration is bent upon doing something amazing that too at the earliest and in the presence of the American forces in Iraq, so that Iraq may not recover from such blow. The American forces have started this type of work. America that was thinking of the civil war in Iraq is now attempting to construct a caste based wall for dividing Iraq.

Undoubtedly after the hanging of Saddam Husain, the conditions in Iraq have worsened. And in spite of it, the citizens in Iraq don't want to see there country bifurcated. But the Bush administration instead of keeping in view the views of Iraqi citizens is proceeding with its plans of undeclared American policy. And usually the American policy is to weaken the enemy, to divide the enemy or at least the seeds of class and caste reparation be sowed so that in future they should remain at daggers drawn for ever.

American soldiers are trying to build by working day and night a fifteen feet high wall around a town Adamia which is quite near to the capital Baghdad. Such type of prison like wall is being built separately around the places where there is a majority of the Shiites or the Sunnies. The wall being constructed around Adamia is about five Kilometres long. Surprisingly, all the people in Iraq may be the Shia, the Sunnies or the Kurd communities are opposing this attempt of cast based division by America. But the American soldiers are telling the people of the Shia community that this wall is being built for their safety. Similarly, it is also being propagated in the Sunny population that these walls are being built to save them from the Shiite extremists.

But the reality is some what else. The five km wall started around Adamia by America may cut of Adamia from Baghdad. But the residents here say that this wall can be helpful in fuelling the violence but it cannot extinguish it. The Iraqi public is of the view that the wall is not an attempt to solve the problem of violence as stated by America but it would aggravate it. All the Iraqis are telling it as a prison wall that will divide the society. It is nothing else but a punishment.

In Iraq, it is not for the first time that the American attempt to divide the Shia and the Sunny society by the walls has been done. Even before it the American forces have built such walls in many territories. In spite of it the violent incidents could not be decreased. Now the question is if these walls built on caste basis in Iraq, a peace establishing act or it is an attempt to divide them or it is an important part of a far seen American policy. The Shia and the Sunny sects leaders in Iraq that are in power there say that these walls will not lessen the hatred present between the two sects, that will increase it. These Iraqi leaders say that these walls based on the Shia and the Sunny class should not be erected. Then why the American policy makers are building these class based walls and that too even without taking into confidence the Iraqi public?

Whereas the question of deteriorating condition in Iraq is concern all the sects in Iraq may be the Shia, the Sunny or the Kurd, they hold America responsible for it. Although America has tried its best to tell the Iraqi public that after the rule of a dictator Saddam Husain, it wants to establish democracy in Iraq. It wants to see the democratic rule in Iraq. The tacts adopted by America for meddling in Iraq such as store of weapons for human destruction by Saddam Husain & hanging him because of Dujail massacre has been very minutely observed by the Iraqi public. This is why the presence of the American forces isn't seen as pleasant thing to Iraqi public. A very popular & underground leader of the Shia community Muqtada-Al-Sadr has become very soft these days. He has made all his ministers to submit resignations. He is also trying for the return of the American forces. In the last days, a statement issued by Muqtada-Al-Sadr was read out in Iraqi parliament in which he has criticised President Bush for not fixing the date of return of the American forces from Iraq. Sadr thinks that the condition has deteriorated because of the 4 year presence of the American forces & it would not further deteriorate if they leave Iraq.

Anyhow, the Iraqi public, that is facing a hell like situation has to face very hard time at present. On the other hand, America, well known for its policy, wants to divide the Iraqi society on caste basis. The 'Wall Policy' of America is an important part of its ill-attempts. Undoubtedly it is a time of test for the Iraqi public. It is to be seen, how they will be successful in the test, saving them from the American policy & keep themselves united.

Who needs enemies when Muslim sects are doing a better job?

Jafri sahib,

Shia Sunni fasad is much deeper than any attempts by Americans. Look at the recent happenings in Parachinar or other areas of Pakistan.

Our Mullahs are ready to kill, maim, and hurt innocent followers of minority sects. Pakistani-Shias, Pakistani-Ahmadis, and Pakistani-Christians have bore the brunt of Mullahtic madness.

Iraqi sunnies gassed, bombed, jailed, and tortured their fellow Kurds and Shias. The same sunnis are continuing their dastardly work even now. The only difference is that Bath party's apparatus is dead. So Shias and Kurds have power as well.

If Sunnis kick out AlQaida today. We'll see peace in Iraq tomorrow. Otherwise the terror will continue just like in our cities and towns.

Americans should be blamed where the blame is due. They innocently thought Iraqis will be able to handle themselves after the overthrow of Saddam.

However the blame of Sunni-Shia fasad sits squarely on the shoulders of our Mullahs. The sooner you realize this, the better it would be for the Muslim countries.

Iraq won't be divided.

The only lines on which they can try to divide Iraq is between Shia-Suni-Kurdish divide and middle east is too cmplicated around Iraq to let that happen.

IT IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO DIVIDE IRAQ AS THEY TRIED IT FOR CENTURIES. EVEN AFTER FIRST WORLD WAR, THE LAWRENCE OF ARABIA AND THE CULTS HAD DREAM ABOUT IT, BUT THERE IS TOO MUCH IN THE EQUATION OF WHAT IRAQ IS AS LOOSELY UNITED AND STILL INSEPARABLE.

YOU HAVE GOT 65 PERCENT SHIAS, WHO HAVE HALF OF IRAQ OIL AROUND BASRA AND THEN THE KURD-TURKMAN ARE CONTROLLING THE OTHER HALF OIL AROUND KIRKUK.ONLY 100000 TURKMEN ARE EQUALLY IN CONTROL OF KIRKUK OIL ALONG WITH 4 MILLION KURDS.THE KURDISH FACTOR IS THE SINGLE MOST IMORTANT REASON FOR TURKEY TO BE DRAWN IN TO PROTECT TURKMEN, WHO ARE INHABITED ON OIL RICH KIRKUL LANDS.DOES'NT MATTER IF THE TURKMEN ARE ONLY FRACTION OF 1 PERCENT, BUT THEY ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR BOTH TURKEY AND TURKMENISTAN AND FOR ITS HUGE OIL DEPOSITS.

THIS KURDISH-TURKMEN FACTOR IS THE SINGLE FACTOR THAT MADE TURKEY REFUSE THE ONLY CONVENIENT INVASION ROUTE TO AMERICA FOR INVADING IRAQ.THIS IS THE KEY FACTOR THAT FAILED RAMESFELD AND RESULTED IN HIS RESIGNATION AS THE NEWELY CHOSEN ROUTE THROUGH PERSIAN GULF TO KUWAIT TO BASRA TO BAGDAD REQUIRED MANY TIMES MORE GROUND TROOPS THAN THE 140000 THERE ARE NOW.

TURKEY, IRAN, SYRIA AND IRAQ DO NOT ALLOW FOR DIVISION OF IRAQ AS TURKEY AND IRAN WILL BE DESTABILIZED THE MOST. TURKEY MAY EVEN LOOSE ITS SOVERIGNITY IF KURDISH STATE IS FORMED, AS TURKEY ITSELF HAS 20-25 MILLION KURDS WITH MAJOR CHUNK OF ITS LAND IN THE SOUTH EAST, WHICH IS KURDISH INHABITED.

AS A MATTER OF FACT TURKEY WILL NEVER ALLOW, I MEAN WILL NEVER ALLOW ANY MILITARY INVASION THROUGH ANY KURDISH LANDS AS IT WILL SPLINTER TURKEY APART. THAT IN FACT PROTECTS IRAN FROM INVASION FROM THE WEST AS WELL.PAKISTAN IS THE ONLY OTHER OR EVEN MUCH AUSPICIOUS INVASION ROUTE TO IRAN AND PAKISTAN ALSO HAS CATEGORICALLY REFUSED ITS TERRITORY FOR IRAN INVASION AS PAKISTAN'S OWN SITUATION SIMMPLY DOES NOT ALLOW THAT.

AND WITHIN IRAQ, THE THIRD PRTY SUNNI COMPRISE 20 PERCENT OF IRAQ POPULATION. BUT THEY ARE MUCH TOO INFLUENTIAL AS THEY HAVE LEGACIES OF BEING THE RULING CLASS FOR CENTURIES.AND SUNNIS ARE NOT GIVING UP THE SUPERIORITY COMPLEX PRESENCE THERE.

DIVIDING IRAQ WILL ISOLATE AMERICA EVEN MORE AND WILL BE A CLEAR TICKET TO GO BACK TO USA FROM ME.TURKS ARE ALREADY TALKING OF MARCHING IN IF THE KURDS TRY TO CONTROL TURKMEN POPULATION OF 100000 AROUND KIRKUK. TURKEY'S GOVERNMENT HAS BLUNTLY TOLD THE KURDS NOT TO FORGET THEIR LITTLE WORTH IN THE BIG IRAQ EQUATION.TURKEY WILL NEVER EVER ALLOW KURDISTAN OF 22 MILLION TURKISH KURDS PLUS 5 MILLION IRAQI KURDS PLUS 10 MILLION IRANI KURDS PLUS 2 MILLION SYRIAN KURDS.

THE PULL AND PUSH FORCES ARE ALL VERY STRONG TO KEEP IRAQ UNITED AS ANY CHANGE, RE-ARRANGE OR FOREIGN INTERFERENCE WILL NOT WORK. THE WORLD'S MOST POWERFUL COUNTRY COULD'NT DO MUCH THERE.EVEN THE LOSS OF 700000 IRAQI'S DOES'NT BRING IN THE TALK OF DIVIDING IRAQ.
NO MATTER HOW MUCH HATE THERE MAY BE BETWEEN SIA-SUNI-KURDS, THEY HAVE REFUSED TO BE DISINTEGRATED. FOR THAT REASON.THEY HAVE ASKED EVEN SAUDIS AND THE TURKS TO KEEP THE HANDS OFF, LET ALONE AMERICA FORCE ON THE PEOPLE OF DIFFERENCES.

IRAQ CANNOT AND WILL NOT BE BROKEN APERT OR EVEN PARTITIONED. THE GEOGRAPHY OF ECONOMIC DISTRIBUTION PROHIBITS THAT.

YET, MOST IMPORTANT, SHIAS SUNNIS AND KURDS NEED EACH OTHER FOR ECONOMIC REASONS.PRODUCE OF ONE IS THE OUTLET OF THE OTHERS.ENERGY RESOURCES OF OIL ARE IN THE NORTH AND SOUTH AND IN BETWEEN THE SUNNIS ARE THE TRANSPORT MODES TO MOVE ENERGY.

THE SAUDIS MAY LIKE TO HELP SUNNIS, BUT THEY CANNOT REACH THERE WITHOUT PASSING THROUGH SHIA LANDS OR SYRIA OR IRAN OR TURKEY AND NONE OF THOSE COUNTRIES WILL ALLOW THAT. NOR DO IRAN OR TURKEY WANT TO DISTURB THE ETHNIC SET UP. SALADIN AYUBI, HIMSELF A KURD LEFT IRAQ ALONE AND DID NOT HELP FELLOW KURD FOR INDEPENDENT KURDISTAN. NO ONE ELSE CAN HELP CREATE A KURDISH STATE IF SALADIN AYUBI DID'NT OR COULD'NT WANT TO DO IT.

EVEN AMERICA REALIZED ITS LIMITATIONS AS IT CAN LOOSE THE PEACE PRODDED AND PEACE FACILITATED OIL SUPPLIES FROM MIDDLE EAST.

SO,THEY WILL ALL LEAVE IRAQ ALONE AND LET IT STAY LOOSLY UNITED AND MORE THAN EVER INSEPARABLE.

LIKE PAKISTAN,IRAQ NEEDS A VERY STRONG GOVERNMENT WITH FULLY MILITARY SUPPOERT AND SHADOW TO STAY UNITED.

HALF THE POPULATION OF IRAQ, LIKE PAKISTAN CONSISTS OF MARSHAL NUTS, WHO HAVE BEEN HISTORICALLY OF MARSHAL RACE.

SADDAM WAS STRONG AND WAS ABLE TO CONTROL AND HOLD ALL THREE PEOPLE TOGETHER.IN PAKISTAN, AYUB KHAN AND ZIA WERE STRONG MEN AND SO IS MUSHARRAF.THE DEMOCRACY FIZZLED TWICE,BOTH FOR SHARIF AND BB.YOU'VE GOT TOUGH PATHANS, WESTERN PUNJABIS AS MARSHAL WARRIORS.

AND THE POLITICIANS CAN ONLY YAP YAP. THE ULTIMATE CEMENTING POWER IN SUCH COUNTRIES HAS TO BE VERY STRONG.

IRAQ WILL STAY UNITED AND SO WILL PAKISTAN. ONLY A WEAK MILITARY BASE CAN SPLINTER THEM OFF.

IT IS TOO MUCH A BITE FOR THE WEAK.

Is Israel Trying to Have Iran Invade Saudi Arabia?

The "Islamic" revolution of Iran is a misnomer. Tehran has 1.5 million Sunnis. There are ten churches, four synagogues, but not a single solitary Sunni mosque in Tehran. Sunnis who constitute 90% of world Muslims are persecuted in Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon where mostly Iran-based Shiites hold the reigns of power.

Shiites are allowed to perform pilgrimage to Mecca, but since Khomeini's rise to power in 1979, several Iranian leaders have revealed to the world their intention to "liberate Mecca."

The history of the Middle East shows that Shiites regularly allied themselves with foreign invaders. Mongolian, British, French and even Israeli occupiers of Arab lands relied on Shiite help in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. The famous Sabra and Shatila massacres of Sunni Palestinians in Lebanon--that Sharon is credited with facilitating--were the work of the Amal Shiite militia in collaboration with Sharon. The Amal militias are now recast as Hezbollah.

"When the Riser rises, he will rule by the laws of David and destroy the Arabs," says a secret but well-documented Shiite prophecy. "Riser" is the Shiite Messiah, the twelveth Imam who is now said to be in hiding. In other words, Iran's ayatollahs are "Muslim Zionists."

Just like the Jewish community, the Shiite community believes that it is persecuted. Therefore, most Shiites cooperate unquestioningly with leaders "for the safety of the community."

Because of persecution, Shiites believe that they must lie and put on shows to send "the enemies" into the wrong direction. They also believe in sacrificing some Shiites for the good of the whole Shiite nation.

As in Lebanon, a new feigned conflict between Shiites (Iran) and a US-Israeli alliance would only cause the death of Sunnis and Americans.

Remember the bombing of the Marine barracks in 1983 by a Shiite-Israeli plot? Remember all the Sunni Palestinians killed in Lebanon by the collaboration between Israel and the Shiites of Syria and Lebanon?

Who is dying in Iraq today? You guessed it: mostly Sunnis and Americans.

Shiites have never been a real threat to Israel. In the Mideast deception games, the Shiites of Iran, Syria and Lebanon actually lend Israel their support by staging incidents or making outrageous statements.

Skirmishes with Iran would give Iran an excuse to attack the Sunni Persian Gulf. Israel's dream of invading Saudi Arabia would come true, although by proxy. And Shiites would also fulfil their own dream of "liberating Mecca."

Saudi Wahabis persecute Shias, and Iranis persecute Sunnis

Masood Baloch said I quote:
============================
The "Islamic" revolution of Iran is a misnomer. Tehran has 1.5 million Sunnis. There are ten churches, four synagogues, but not a single solitary Sunni mosque in Tehran.
============================

This is truly a sign of Muslim brotherhood. Isn’t it? Saudis destroy and lock up Shia holy places, while Iranian Shias pay back in kind.

Closer to home, I mean look at the recent incidences in Pakistan. What happened in Parachinar, or DI Khan is a shame for us all Pakistanis.

We allowed Mullahs to run amok and look what they did. We have flowing in our streets, the innocent blood of Pakistani-Shias, Pakistani-Brelvis, Pakistani-Ahmadis, and Pakistani-Christians.

Who is perpetrating these heinous crimes? Our own home grown Mullahs off course. They all gained power because we the Pakistanis allowed them to spread terror in the name of Islamic brotherhood.

It is time Pakistanis wake up and smell the coffee. Islamic brotherhood is a pipe dream, and Islamic Ummah could only exist on the moon.

It is time we recognize our enemies within. It is time we wake up and do something to save our fellow Pakistanis, our neighbors, and our loved ones. If we fail in stopping these terrorists, believe me, the whole Pakistan will be turned into a Mullah's Jannat. A Jannat not too different from the ones in Afghanistan and Somalia.

peace.

Iraq Aid conferance with Energy Climate Gimmick

If Shia Sunni are being treated likes Muslim of the Past. Who cares? It is a question of survival of the fittest living side by side with those in possession of WMD and who seem to be dictating
How Muslim will have to behave without oilfield without religion or without power to govern own life via demonstrating world seminars and defining climate energy IMF loan and oil sales.

Rice and Syria met in Iraq conference amid energy and climate conference ongoing too. Islam has been sold out. Islamic properties have been sold out .Iran Saudi Arabia Iraq
Egypt Pakistan Turkey behaviour seem abnormal when it comes to Iraq conference
Climate change alternative energy by rule of thumb and common sense.

1. US and allied claim Iraq invasion have cost them $600 billion. It has also been claim
Iraq Iran Saudi Arabia have foreign debt about $20-40 billion each and these US UK Canada economy is go great that they wish to give them aid $20 billion to Iraq via
Sharm el sheik conference on Iraq.

2. It is fact they are having recession while all the money has been wasted in non productive soldiers duty. One of the characteristic of foreign debt is that they charge money for bombing and keeping soldiers in millions in Iraq Afghanistan .The money which never arrived in Pakistan Iraq or why would Saudi Arabia has foreign debt.
And Iran ayatollah has foreign debt.

3. 63 countries seminars on climate change or their leaders are fraud. Leaders are Tom dick and Harry as soldiers bania musician dictator while seminar attendee are idiots
(some with PhD). Emission of Carbon monoxide Coal burning emission has been done
Knowingly to save money in Water Cooling tower. Cooling towers are concrete unit you may have seen in movie in UK EU or USA .they do not use to pollute the air knowingly.

4 alternative to fossil fuel electricity comes from solar wind coal .They have invaded Muslim OPEC and emptying it all up fast knowingly incompetently deliberately.

5. Iran Iraq Saudi Arabia Muslim OPEC leaders on above issue seem pretending that the above idiots will solve problem of emission problem of oil LNG theft. This is not true.

6. All the top emission professors of Harvard Cambridge oxford or anywhere will tell you that seminar does not eliminate anything. Emission by coal user’s car user will continue to break the rule.

7.USA Canada have surplus farms water and new fossil fuel user like Thailand using fossil fuel aircraft to sprinkle rain making powders in the air to create artificial rain above
Their rice fields. It is these stupid UMMA OPEC who are kafir .The kafir have also removed top soil qabr soil and anything considered where the dead spirit of umma likely goes.

8. The enemy from within have written off UMMA Umma’s resource umma‘s religion and unashamedly show sympathy such as those 30 killed by Cho seung Hui while
Tens of million Muslims being killed do not count. For me basic minimum competency was needed basic minimum honesty was needed. Either they do not have or deliberately have been set aside to inflict pain and suffering to be imparted upon UMMA and Muslim and Poor None Muslim .A handful Of beneficiary seem to have hijacked oil LNG and they been unilaterally making decision for the rest of the world by force. This is pure theft with UMMA written off with enemy from within.

Shia Theology

Iraq may be divided between Arab and Turkey but may not handed over to Iran as Persia did have many a parts that are now having their own governments and territories like Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, Kurdistan, Baluchistan etc. Iran is a Shia power and Shias being more sincere to mourning and having their basic theology opposing Sunnis considering that being their sacred utmost skill can never rule a wholy muslim population with due justice so it should be kept clear in mind that Shias ruling a general muslim population will create problems and misunderstandings for future. They have certain basic theme of religion that they can not open themselves or openly act as honourable rulers. Shia theology does not have the potential to accept other folks.
