Last of the Combat Troops Leaving Iraq? – Only in your Dreams

by Bill Noxid / August 21st, 2010

MSNBC’s coverage of ‘the last combat troops leaving Iraq’ for 3 hours
reminded of a few brutal realities that still plague this country and
this planet. The first being just how far this country remains from any
semblance of reality. It’s the kind of delusional denial that truly can
only be believed when witnessed from within. As Keith Olbermann was
describing the cinematic quality of the “Strykers driving into your
living room,” I could really think of only one thing – The aftermath of
a 7.5 year all out United States operation to decimate a people and
their society.

There’s no way to comprehend the scope and facets of this operation,
because you would need a Pentagon for that. From the first day after
initial conquest when the money disappeared from the banks and their
record of civilization was decimated by the looting of their museums,
it was like any other colonial conquest in history, except every
excruciating moment of this one was on television. The following 7.5
years of the assimilation of a country went as diagrammed.

From control (denial) of power, water, and even seed monopolization,
to toxic contamination of the gene pool and re-education ‘schools,’ to
monopolization of natural resources, to fostering drug addictions and
self-perpetuating violence, etc., what took a hundred years to do to
Native Americans was accomplished in under a decade. Quite an example
of lessons learned from hundreds of years of colonization.

And in the name of all that is Holy, please do not delude yourself
into believing this war is over. 50,000 troops will remain, an
‘unknowable’ number of contractors/mercenaries, and an embassy that
makes the Vatican look like the summer home will remain. Certainly, the
colonization of Iraq was one of the fastest and most efficient in
history. It also needs to be the last.

So there are no delusions of the reality we have left for the Iraqi
people, please watch the short videos below. Then, while you’re sitting
with your family watching the MSM pundits debate whether the war was
‘worth it’ or not, think about how long you could survive the kind of
‘Freedom’ we have heaped on the Iraqis. Face the reality, and forget
the cinema.

    was the pro-Israel warmongers like Dick Cheney, Richard Perle, John
    Bolton, Bill Kristol, Reuel Marc Gerecht, Norm Podhoretz, Daniel Pipes,
    etc. who fooled the American public by Israeli Hasbara (propaganda)
    lies to wage a war on Iraq, which had been US ally in 8-year war with
    the Islamic Republic. Now the same Israeli-poodles are running a
    vicious campaign against Islamic Republic. Richard Perle in a testimony
    before the US Senate on November 8, 2002, had claimed that Iraqi oil
    would pay for US war costs. Maybe it has – but only Perle and Benjamin
    Netanyahu would know!

    One of the first reactions to Obama’s speech came from the powerful
    Washington-based neocon think tank Center for a New American Security
    (CNAS). CNAS’s “friends” include James Steinberg, Assistant Secretary
    of State, Gen. David Petreaus, Dennis Ross and Daniel Kurtzer. Brain
    Burton a CNAS Fellow said in an interview: “It was a speech given for
    domestic political purposes rather than to announce some key shift in
    US policy in Iraq”…….
