Iraq: All in government, none in opposition!

Unlike other parliamentary democracies on earth, the Americans have insisted that the Iraqi government should be inclusive. That means all political parties and groupings should be represented in the government. It may sound music to the ears of some but in reality the Americans don’t like any opposition to their policies in occupied Iraq and want to implicate all parties in getting their hand dirty by keeping quiet about the occupation and about the role of the oversized embassy in dirty works. Most of the 29 ministers already approved by parliament today 21.12.2010, with or without portfolios, want a share of Iraq wealth through corrupt practices and kickbacks. They have been recruited and brought to Iraq behind US tanks in order to manage the occupation and to implement USraeli designs in the area. It is the same Nouri Al-Maliki who agreed to have MOSSAD and CIA assassinate 350 Iraqi scientists and university professors. It is the same people who will not ask the Americans to apologise to the Iraqis and to compensate the victims of their illegal war on Iraq. As one Iraqi commentator said “the Iraqi government pig went into labour and delivered a rotten cockroach”. With such a collection of highly-unqualified crooks, profiteers, agents of foreign intelligence agencies and with dual nationalities, the government is expected to fail in developing Iraq, in ending the occupation or in stopping the violence. The Americans love to deal with corrupt people who are ready to betray their countries for a handful of dollars. As the Libyans say “You don’t have to go out to know it is winter”.

The Iraqi parliament has approved a plan to pay $400 million in reparations to Americans who say they were abused by executed dictator Saddam Hussein during the 1990-91 Gulf War.


The parliament approved the payments on Saturday even as lawmakers loyal to the anti-American Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr rejected the settlement and walked out before the vote.


in August 1990, Saddam's forces invaded neighboring Kuwait, but the assault was quickly met with an international military response that pushed the Iraqis out of the emirate. Hundreds of U.S. citizens were held by Saddam's regime and used as human shields to deter coalition attacks on Iraq. Some of the hostages claimed they were mistreated and tortured by Saddam's forces and sued the Iraqi government for reparations.


Washington and Baghdad had earlier reached agreement on the damages last September as a way to end court disputes over the claims. But the Iraqi parliament still needed to ratify the pact.


U.S.-led forces overthrew Saddam in 2003. He eventually was captured later that year and executed in 2006 for the 1982 killing of Iraqi Shi'ites.
