Following the withdrawal of American and British troops from Iraq, with that proud and ancient land now cleansed of the presence of the Great Satan, how are Iraqis getting on with their lives? Ending them, violently. 

A wave of apparently co-ordinated bomb attacks in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, have killed at least 57 people and injured more than 170, say officials. The interior ministry said 13 locations had been attacked, including al-Amil in the south of the city and Halawi and Karrada closer to the centre. The bombings are the worst in months – and follow the withdrawal of US troops. They come amid fears of rising sectarian tensions as the unity government faces internal divisions. It was not immediately clear who was behind the attacks. However, analysts say the level of co-ordination suggests a planning capability only available to al-Qaeda in Iraq.

They love death like we love life … to borrow a phrase. Still, if they must kill better they do not kill our people. I wish they would desist from mass slaughter but this time only liberals can blame us. They hate each other to death and sadly there is nothing we can do to stop them.

  1. David,
    In the past Western statesmen knew that the only way some countries could function was to have a strongman as leader. He kept all the factions together through fear and repression. Now “Freedom!” and “Democracy!” are the new buzzwords, and the West goes about the world trying to impose those values on peoples who either do not understand them or do not want them.
    Saddam Hussein held Iraq together.
    The West “liberated” Iraq., reduced it to rubble and resentment and then left, pretending it was a triumph.
    Now there is no one to hold them together, and guess what?!

  2. “with that proud and ancient land now cleansed of the presence of the Great Satan,”

    Yes, but he went into hiding and then was captured and hanged several years ago, and the violence has been continuing ever since that “regime change”, as everyone with intelligence knew it would.

    And everyone without intelligence thought it wouldn’t.

  3. “Freedom and Democracy” – the ‘one-size fits all’, solution to all problems for every country and every nation.

    Has this social experiment ever worked? – very doubtful, especially if judged by the price paid in human lives, and yet it is still ‘a work in progress’, with this phase called ‘the Arab Spring’, still using the same old, and unsuccessful, methods. Korea, one of the early attempts, – partially succesful, but only by playing host to a large number of US military. Are lessons never learned by our politicians?

    Whether countries are ruled by a dictator, either benevolent or malevolent, – it is their business, not anyone else’s.

    Was ever a religious crusade ever fought with such vigor and persistence? – very doubtful. This crusade goes beyond anything religious, it is a crusade based more on a doctrinaire political philosophy than anything remotely concerned with humanitarian principles.

    All of which begs the question, – just what is the eventual goal? Hard to believe it is a mutinational environment with an environment of the fictious ‘global peace’, – perhaps, and seemingly more likely, the goal is one of ‘global rule’. Probably initially by led by a ‘representative’ committee, but inevitably gravitating to rule by a small elite clique.

    Who then will deliver that promise of ‘freedom and democracy’?

  4. Noel,

    Go ahead and be the typical Irish moral adjudicator, Twist and spin the evil, terrorists into the victims.

    It’s a marvellous cultural phenomenon driven by the green-eyed monster and the begrudgery that is instilled in generations of self-centred, infantile behaviour.

    Love Disney world, Yankee tourist dollars but loath America.

  5. A wave of well coordinated attacks – almost a military scenario. A few more of these and the Iraqis will be begging for the official American army to return to occupy them. But how many ‘contractors’ are still in Iraq and what exactly are they doing?

  6. “Love Disney world, Yankee tourist dollars but loath America.”


    You can love your country, by all means, but we had all better fear our governments.
