“Mission Accomplished”—Illegal Iraq War’s 10th Anniversary Marked by Deadly Car Bomb Attacks

The tenth anniversary of the illegal and criminally immoral war against Iraq waged by the George W. Bush regime and his criminal Zionist extremist neocon backers has been marked with a deadly series of at least a dozen car bomb attacks in Baghdad which have left more than 50 people dead.


 Newswires report that a dozen car bombs and suicide blasts targeted Shi’ite Muslim districts across Baghdad and south of the Iraqi capital today. Sunni Islamist insurgents linked to al Qaeda are regaining ground in Iraq.

 One car bomb exploded in a busy Baghdad market, three detonated in the Shi’ite district of Sadr City, and another near the entrance of the heavily fortified Green Zone that sent a plume of dark smoke into the air alongside the River Tigris.

 No group claimed responsibility for the Baghdad blasts, but Islamic State of Iraq, a wing of al Qaeda, has vowed to take back ground lost in its war with US troops. This year the group has carried out a string of high-profile attacks.

 Violence is still below the bloody height of the sectarian slaughter that killed tens of thousands after Sunni Islamists bombed the Shi’ite Al Askari shrine in 2006, provoking a wave of retaliation by Shi’ite militias.

 But security officials say al Qaeda’s local wing is regrouping in the vast desert of Anbar Province bordering Syria and suicide bombers have carried out attacks nearly twice a week since January, a rate not seen for several years in Iraq.

 Iraq is now, ten years after the invasion, far more unstable, worse off, and a bigger threat to world peace than before the unjustified attack.

 At the time, Americans were told by the controlled media that Iraq was responsible for the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, and that Saddam Hussein possessed nuclear and chemical weapons of mass destruction.

 All of these claims—enthusiastically announced to the world by Bush, Colin Powell, and British Prime Minister Tony Blair—were pure fiction, and most were later shown to have been complete fabrications developed by Zionist extremist necons, which included the following:

* Richard Perle, Chairman of George’ Bush’s Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee;

* Douglas Feith, Under Secretary of Defense and the Pentagon’s Policy Advisor;

* Paul Wolfowitz, Deputy Defense Secretary and campaign advisor;

* Robert Satloff, U.S. National Security Council Advisor;

* Rabbi Dov Zekheim, Under Secretary of Defense and Comptroller;

* Elliott Abrams, National Security Council Advisor;

* Marc Grossman, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs;

* Richard Haass, Director of Policy Planning at the State Department and Director of National Security Programs;

* Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State, and a Pentagon advisor who sat on the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board;

* James Schlesinger, Pentagon advisor who also sat on the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board;

* Robert Zoellick, US’s Trade Representative;

* Mel Sembler, president of the Export-Import Bank of the United States;

* Israeli citizen Ari Fleischer, who served as the official White House spokesman;

* Joshua Bolten, Bush’s Chief Policy Director;

* Steve Goldsmith, Senior Advisor to the President and domestic policy advisor;

* Mark Weinberger, the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury;

* Samuel Bodman, Deputy Secretary of Commerce;

* Bonnie Cohen, Under Secretary of State for Management;

* Ruth Davis, the Director of the Foreign Service Institute;

* Lincoln Bloomfield, Assistant Secretary of State for Political Military Affairs;

* Jay Lefkowitz, General Counsel of the Office of Budget and Management;

* David Frum, Bush’s official White House speechwriter;

* Ken Melman, White House Political Director;

* Brad Blakeman, White House Director of Scheduling; and, possibly most importantly of all,

* George Tenet, head of the CIA. It was Tenet who oversaw the manufacture of the welter of lies, half truths, and deceptions about Saddam Hussein and Iraq.

 All of these people, and of course George Bush, bear direct responsibility for the nightmare which is Iraq today. As brutal as the Saddam Hussein regime might have been, it was a dedicated opponent of Al-Qaeda and a stabilizing force in the Middle East.

Hussein’s only sin was, of course, that he was a vocal enemy of the Zionist state. As such, he had to be removed, and the job was done by duping the American public once again.

  1. Thanks for taking the trouble to research the list of (unelected) US officials behind the illegal invasion of Iraq in 2003. Funny how so many of them have Jewish names. At the time we anticipated that the invasion would result in a blood bath because Saddam Hussein was obviously keeping the lid on ethnic and sectarian conflicts just as Marshall Tito had done in Yugoslavia. As your article demonstrates 15 years of democracy has not entirely eliminated Iraqis’ propensity for sectarian slaughter.
    I think that the reasoning behind the US led coalition’s invasion was the belief that democratic Arab governments would be less threatening to Israel and would be more compliant with the policies of Washington, the IMF and the United Nations. What they failed to anticipate was that the Shiite underclass in Iraq would begin to assert itself and demonstrate a far more implacable opposition to Zionism and American Imperialism than the Baathist’s had . It was the Shiite Mahdi army that dominated the armed resistance to the US led coalition occupying forces and the Shiite Sadrist movement is today Iraq’s largest and most powerful socio-political movement. In this election, for instance, al-Sadre’s Alliance Towards Reforms bloc won the largest number of seats in parliament. Considering that Shiites are the largest religious group in Iraq and are the majority of the population you can see where this is heading.
