A Quickie: An Occupied vs ‘Free’ Country

From occupied Iraq comes this:

Flushing Blackwater: Iraq expels ‘Xe’ private contractors

From ‘free’ Pakistan:

September 24, 2009: Malik rejects presence of Blackwater inside Pakistan

January 23, 2010: Pak govt. red faced after Gates nails its ‘no Blackwater operating inside country’ lie
January 24th, 2010: Malik still insists no Blackwater in Pakistan
February 09, 2010: Malik insists no Blackwater in Pakistan
February 10, 2010: Malik sticks to ‘no Blackwater’ mantra

(Of course there is no ‘Blackwater’ in Pakistan. ‘Xe’? Well that is another matter 😉 )

Also, we have this from another occupied country:

Afghan Leaders Call Surge, “Imbecilic and Tragic”

From ‘free’ Pakistan:

“Masa, Masa, you so smart! We with you all the way, Masa!”
Pakistan briefed on Afghan offensive
Helmand operation not to impact Pakistan: Kayani
McChrystal discusses Pak-Afghan border with Kayani

It is always interesting to see the posture of our 'leaders' in front of their Masa

RAWALPINDI: Ahead of the massive US military offensive in Afghan province of Helmand, Pakistan’s top military leadership made it clear that all US actions should remain on the Afghan side of the border and intelligence information should be shared with Pakistani security forces.

Talking to US National Security Advisor James Jones and ISAF Commander in Kabul General Stanley A. McChrystal separately at GHQ in Rawalpindi, General Kayani said sacrifices rendered by Pakistani security forces are much higher than what the coalition forces suffered in Afghanistan.

Kayani briefed the defence officials about progress in the South Waziristan operation and asked for an increase in check posts on other side of the border for strict vigilance on the movement of militants.

Both top defence officials lauded role of Pakistani security forces in the fight against terrorism.

Pull Out My @ss — US Occupation of Iraq Continues Unabated

“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” –– George Orwell

…We have passed the June 30 deadline that, according to a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) signed between US Ambassador Ryan Crocker and Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari on November 17, 2008, was the date all US forces were to have been withdrawn from all of Iraq’s cities. Today, however, there are at least 134,000 US soldiers in Iraq – a number barely lower than the number that were there in 2003. In addition, US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates testified on June 9 that the United States would maintain an average of at least 100,000 troops in Iraq through fiscal year 2010….(link)

The Iraq War Really Is a Crusade

According to French President Chirac, Bush told him that the Iraq war was needed to bring on the apocalypse:

In Genesis and Ezekiel Gog and Magog are forces of the Apocalypse who are prophesied to come out of the north and destroy Israel unless stopped. The Book of Revelation took up the Old Testament prophesy:

“And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”

Bush believed the time had now come for that battle, telling Chirac:

“This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his people’s enemies before a New Age begins”…

 

There can be little doubt now that President Bush’s reason for launching the war in Iraq was, for him, fundamentally religious. He was driven by his belief that the attack on Saddam’s Iraq was the fulfilment of a Biblical prophesy in which he had been chosen to serve as the instrument of the Lord.
