President Dwight Eisenhower (1952-1960) warned against the possibility of war mongers, supported by the military-industry complex, taking over the US government. He was also against helping Israel in its nuclear ambition and stood firm in demanding an immediate end to the Israeli, British and French occupation of the Suez Canal and Sinai Peninsula in 1956. But since then, successive US presidents, aside from Jimmy Carter (1976-1980), have increased defence spending and launched wars that killed millions. Furthermore, since the Christian fundamentalist-Zionist alliance occupied Washington D.C.* the US government (s) have been involved in diverting huge military and financial aids to Israel and in fighting Jewish wars. In fact the American march on Baghdad in March 2003 was mainly to eliminate a threat to Israel, which did cost the Americans over $US Three Trillions and the death of 4500 US military personnel and hundred of thousands of Iraqis. But the unlimited spending on weapons and the launching of wars have started to bankrupt the only remaining superpower and its close European allies. Despite the budgetary constraints, the Americans continue to insist that a US military presence in Iraq (20000 combat troops plus 75000 mercenaries) is essential to contain the internal violence and to stop Iran from meddling in Iraq’s internal affairs.

By a mere chance or by design, the Americans have the habit of political miscalculation which has been very costly to all concerned. In trying to keep US forces beyond the end of 2011, as it was stipulated by the security agreement of 2008, the ‘Americans refuse to listen to the Iraqi people but only to those corrupt politicians whom they brought and installed to rule Iraq. If the present US pressure on their agents in government succeeds, then it will not be only remnants of Saddam regime or Al-Qaeda terrorists who resist the US presence, but it will involve Iraqi nationalists from the North to the South, disregarding the Kurdish Tarzani leadership and the manoeuvring of Dr Allawi, Dr Al-Jaafari and P.M. Al-Maliki.

Any objective observer may ask; how a reduced US military presence can stop the violence in Iraq or contain the Iranians, when a huge presence at one time of over 165000 military personnel and 125000 civilian contractors (mercenaries) failed to do so? To add insult to injury, the Americans want to establish military bases around ‘Diplomatic Missions’ (Embassy and Consulates) in order to protect their spying activities, their interference in Iraq internal affairs and their dirty-work squads. In otherwords, the Americans want to establishing occupied zones with diplomatic immunity to all its military and civilian personnel.

No matter how the Americans want to put it, they have in reality failed in every department and Iraq right now is one million times worse than it was when they entered it in 2003. The crumbling infrastructure, the lack of security and the corruption are anything but the Americans can be proud of. I call on the Americans to “Please pack up and go home as the Iraqis want to be free of any foreign dictations or military presence". After apologising and compensating the Iraqis, in the long run, the Americans may be forgiven. Albeit it will be extremely difficult in a country with a deeply-routed revenge culture. In the meantime, the Americans will be hunted down as long as they remain in Iraq.

The American must rest assured that the Iraqis can defend their country, homes and families without the need for the monster-looking US soldiers parading in their streets. It is far better for the Americans to save their taxpayers money and go to police the streets of Los Angeles, Miami Florida, St Louis, Chicago, Detroit or New York. In conclusion after what they have done to Iraq, the Americans are not wanted in the country, in any shape or form.

What the United States should be doing is setting up fair trade polticies and educating Americans to stop being huge consumers.

Cutting consumption will not help if the current military spending remains at current levels.

Bankrupt America has too many military bases (658 in 100 countries) and fighting too many Jewish wars.

URGENT / No extension of the Agreement with the Americans - Talabani think we are fool and dumb to believe his statements

7/20/2011 1:32 PM

 

BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: Iraqi President Jalal Talabani has denied the existence of any plan to extend the U.S.

troops' presence in Iraq, despite the Iraqi Army not being entirely prepared to protect the country's borders, a Presidencial statement announced on Wednesday.

 

“The extension of the American-Iraqi Agreement is not possible, because such an extension necessitates the approval by two-thirds of the Parliament members.

This will not be achieved,” the statement quoted Talabani as saying in an interview with the Chinese Central Television (CCTV).

 

“The Iraqi military commands of the air-force, the navy, the army and the ground forces, have raised reports confirming the inability to protect the Iraqi borders after the withdrawal of the American forces,” he said.

 

He pointed to the “necessity of the existence of some American Trainers in Iraq, despite the fact that the presence of the American forces in their current manner is something that is opposed by the political forces in Iraq.”

 

President Talabani, in his interview, spoke about the nature of the political system in Iraq, saying that “Iraq’s nature and components of nationalities, religions and sectarian components necessitate a democratic federal system, but this issue is left for the will of the people and the voters.”

 

Commenting on relations with China, Talabani said, “There exists no obstacle in expanding relations between Iraq and China and to develop them on all material, social and political aspects.

The Iraqi leadership has a great wish to strengthen those relations, and I have a feeling that the Chinese Leadership possesses a similar wish to strengthen relations with Iraq.”

Jalal Talibani, President of occupied Iraq, was wright in saying that the Iraqi parliament will not approve the extension of the US military presence in the country beyond 2011. However, US agents in government want the Americans to return from the back door as advisors. The armed Shiites and the armed Sunnis are uniting efforts to oppose and fight any military presence.
