The US, UK and israeli regimes are responsible for ordering their agents and elite forces to use cars etc full of explosives to bomb civilian targets in Iraq to pit Sunni against Shiite so that Sunni and Shiite would kill each other and start civil wars in Iraq.

Britain "apologizes" for terrorist act in Basra
Rescue of SAS men who were planning to place bombs in Basra City Square


GlobalResearch.ca | October 16, 2005

In earlier reports, we focussed on the operation of two undercover British SAS operatives, dressed in traditonal Arab clothing, who were planning to set of bombs in the main square in Basra, coinciding with a religious event.

They were arrested by Iraqi police and subsequently "liberated" by British forces in a major military assault, directed against the Iraqi police authorities with tanks and armed cars.

(See Were British Special Forces Soldiers Planting Bombs in Basra? by Michael Keefer, See also British "Undercover Soldiers" Caught driving Booby Trapped Car)

The matter of what the SAS operatives were doing was hushed up. No investigation was carried out.

This and other incidents suggest that the bomb attacks on civilians including suicide attacks are in fact covert intelligence operations to trigger divisions within Iraqi society, while at the same time weakening the resistance movement.

There is, however, a growing awareness among the Iraqi population that the occupation forces rather than Al Qaeda are behind the attacks on civilians.

In a recent report (October 12):
"A number of Iraqis apprehended two Americans disguised in Arab dress as they tried to blow up a booby-trapped car in the middle of a residential area in western Baghdad on Tuesday.

Residents of western Baghdad's al-Ghazaliyah district told Quds Press that the people had apprehended the Americans as they left their Caprice car near a residential neighborhood in al-Ghazaliyah on Tuesday afternoon (11 October 2005). Local people found they looked suspicious so they detained the men before they could get away. That was when they discovered that they were Americans and called the Iraqi puppet police."

Were British Special Forces Soldiers Planting Bombs in Basra?
Suspicions Strengthened by Earlier Reports

Michael Keefer | September 27 2005

Does anyone remember the shock with which the British public greeted the revelation four years ago that one of the members of the Real IRA unit whose bombing attack in Omagh on August 15, 1998 killed twenty-nine civilians had been a double agent, a British army soldier?

That soldier was not Britain’s only terrorist double agent. A second British soldier planted within the IRA claimed he had given forty-eight hours advance notice of the Omagh car-bomb attack to his handlers within the Royal Ulster Constabulary, including "details of one of the bombing team and the man’s car registration." Although the agent had made an audio tape of his tip-off call, Sir Ronnie Flanagan, chief constable of the RUC, declared that "no such information was received" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetsundayherald(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/17827"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetsundayherald(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/17827[/url] .

This second double agent went public in June 2002 with the claim that from 1981 to 1994, while on full British army pay, he had worked for "the Force Research Unit, an ultra-secret wing of British military intelligence," as an IRA mole. With the full knowledge and consent of his FRU and MI5 handlers, he became a bombing specialist who "mixed explosive and … helped to develop new types of bombs," including "light-sensitive bombs, activated by photographic flashes, to overcome the problem of IRA remote-control devices having their signal jammed by army radio units." He went on to become "a member of the Provisional IRA’s ‘internal security squad’—also known as the ‘torture unit’—which interrogated and executed suspected informers" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetsundayherald(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/print25646"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetsundayherald(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/print25646[/url] .

The much-feared commander of that same "torture unit" was likewise a mole, who had previously served in the Royal Marines’ Special Boat Squadron (an elite special forces unit, the Marines’ equivalent to the better-known SAS). A fourth mole, a soldier code-named "Stakeknife" whose military handlers "allowed him to carry out large numbers of terrorist murders in order to protect his cover within the IRA," was still active in December 2002 as "one of Belfast’s leading Provisionals" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetsundayherald(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/29997"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetsundayherald(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/29997[/url] .

Reliable evidence also emerged in late 2002 that the British army had been using its double agents in terrorist organizations "to carry out proxy assassinations for the British state"—most notoriously in the case of Belfast solicitor and human rights activist Pat Finucane, who was murdered in 1989 by the Protestant Ulster Defence Association. It appears that the FRU passed on details about Finucane to a British soldier who had infiltrated the UDA; he in turn "supplied UDA murder teams with the information" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetsundayherald(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/29997"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetsundayherald(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/29997[/url] .

Recent events in Basra have raised suspicions that the British army may have reactivated these same tactics in Iraq.

Articles published by Michel Chossudovsky, Larry Chin and Mike Whitney at the Centre for Research on Globalization’s website on September 20, 2005 have offered preliminary assessments of the claims of Iraqi authorities that two British soldiers in civilian clothes who were arrested by Iraqi police in Basra on September 19—and in short order released by a British tank and helicopter assault on the prison where they were being held—had been engaged in planting bombs in the city

A further article by Kurt Nimmo points to false-flag operations carried out by British special forces troops in Northern Ireland and elsewhere, and to Donald Rumsfeld’s formation of the P2OG, or Proactive Preemptive Operations Group, as directly relevant to Iraqi charges of possible false-flag terror operations by the occupying powers in Iraq (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetglobalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=20050924&articleid=992"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetglobalresearch.ca/index.php?con...;articleid=992[/url].

These accusations by Iraqi officials echo insistent but unsubstantiated claims, going back at least to the spring of 2004, to the effect that many of the terror bombings carried out against civilian targets in Iraq have actually been perpetrated by U.S. and British forces rather than by Iraqi insurgents.

Some such claims can be briskly dismissed. In mid-May 2005, for example, a group calling itself "Al Qaeda in Iraq" accused U.S. troops "of detonating car bombs and falsely accusing militants" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_siteinstitute(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/bin/articles.cgi?ID=publications45605&Category=publications&Subcategory=0"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_siteinstitute(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/bin/articles.cgi?...p;Subcategory=0[/url] . For even the most credulous, this could at best be a case of the pot calling the kettle soot-stained. But it’s not clear why anyone would want to believe this claim, coming as it does from a group or groupuscule purportedly led by the wholly mythical al-Zarqawi—and one whose very name affiliates it with terror bombers. These people, if they exist, might themselves have good reason to blame their own crimes on others.

Other claims, however, are cumulatively more troubling.

The American journalist Dahr Jamail wrote in April 20, 2004 that the recent spate of car bombings in Baghdad was widely rumoured to have been the work of the CIA:

"The word on the street in Baghdad is that the cessation of suicide car bombings is proof that the CIA was behind them. Why? Because as one man states, ‘[CIA agents are] too busy fighting now, and the unrest they wanted to cause by the bombings is now upon them.’ True or not, it doesn’t bode well for the occupiers’ image in Iraq."

Two days later, on April 22, 2004, Agence France-Presse reported that five car-bombings in Basra—three near-simultaneous attacks outside police stations in Basra that killed sixty-eight people, including twenty children, and two follow-up bombings—were being blamed by supporters of Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr on the British. While eight hundred supporters demonstrated outside Sadr’s offices, a Sadr spokesman claimed to have "evidence that the British were involved in these attacks" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetinq7(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wnw/2004/apr/23/wnw_3_1.htm"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetinq7(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wnw/2004/apr/23/wnw_3_1.htm[/url] .

An anonymous senior military officer said on April 22, 2004 of these Basra attacks that "It looks like Al-Qaeda. It’s got all the hallmarks: it was suicidal, it was spectacular and it was symbolic." Brigadier General Nick Carter, commander of the British garrison in Basra, stated more ambiguously that Al Qaeda was not necessarily to blame for the five bombings, but that those responsible came from outside Basra and "quite possibly" from outside Iraq: "’All that we can be certain of is that this is something that came from outside,’ Carter said" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetinq7(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wnw/2004/apr/23/wnw_4_1.htm"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetinq7(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wnw/2004/apr/23/wnw_4_1.htm[/url] . Moqtada al-Sadr’s supporters of course believed exactly the same thing—differing only in their identification of the criminal outsiders as British agents rather than as Islamist mujaheddin from other Arab countries.

In May 2005 ‘Riverbend’, the Baghdad author of the widely-read blog Baghdad Burning, reported that what the international press was reporting as suicide bombings were often in fact "car bombs that are either being remotely detonated or maybe time bombs." After one of the larger recent blasts, which occurred in the middle-class Ma’moun area of west Baghdad, a man living in a house in front of the blast site was reportedly arrested for having sniped an Iraqi National Guardsman. But according to ‘Riverbend’, his neighbours had a different story:

"People from the area claim that the man was taken away not because he shot anyone, but because he knew too much about the bomb. Rumor has it that he saw an American patrol passing through the area and pausing at the bomb site minutes before the explosion. Soon after they drove away, the bomb went off and chaos ensued. He ran out of his house screaming to the neighbors and bystanders that the Americans had either planted the bomb or seen the bomb and done nothing about it. He was promptly taken away."

Also in May 2005, Imad Khadduri, the Iraqi-exile physicist whose writings helped to discredit American and British fabrications about weapons of mass destruction, reported a story that in Baghdad a driver whose license had been confiscated at an American check-point was told "to report to an American military camp near Baghdad airport for interrogation and in order to retrieve his license." After being questioned for half an hour, he was informed that there was nothing against him, but that his license had been forwarded to the Iraqi police at the al-Khadimiya station "for processing"—and that he should get there quickly before the lieutenant whose name he was given went off his shift.

"The driver did leave in a hurry, but was soon alarmed with a feeling that his car was driving as if carrying a heavy load, and he also became suspicious of a low flying helicopter that kept hovering overhead, as if trailing him. He stopped the car and inspected it carefully. He found nearly 100 kilograms of explosives hidden in the back seat and along the two back doors. The only feasible explanation for this incident is that the car was indeed booby trapped by the Americans and intended for the al-Khadimiya Shiite district of Baghdad. The helicopter was monitoring his movement and witnessing the anticipated ‘hideous attack by foreign elements’."

According to Khadduri, "The same scenario was repeated in Mosul, in the north of Iraq." On this occasion, the driver’s life was saved when his car broke down on the way to the police station where he was supposed to reclaim his license, and when the mechanic to whom he had recourse "discovered that the spare tire was fully laden with explosives."

Khadduri mentions, as deserving of investigation, a "perhaps unrelated incident" in Baghdad on April 28, 2005 in which a Canadian truck-driver with dual Canadian-Iraqi citizenship was killed. He quotes a CBC report according to which "Some media cited unidentified sources who said he may have died after U.S. forces ‘tracked’ a target, using a helicopter gunship, but Foreign Affairs said it’s still investigating conflicting reports of the death. U. S. officials have denied any involvement."

Another incident, also from April 2005, calls more urgently for investigation, since one of its victims remains alive. Abdul Amir Younes, a CBS cameraman, was lightly wounded by U.S. forces on April 5 "while filming the aftermath of a car bombing in Mosul." American military authorities were initially apologetic about his injuries, but three days later arrested him on the grounds that he had been "engaged in anti-coalition activity"

Arianna Huffington, in her detailed account of this case, quite rightly emphasizes its Kafkaesque qualities: Younes has now been detained, in Abu Graib and elsewhere, for more than five months—without charges, without any hint of what evidence the Pentagon may hold against him, and without any indication that he will ever be permitted to stand trial, challenge that evidence, and disprove the charges that might at some future moment be laid. But in addition to confirming, yet again, the Pentagon’s willingness to violate the most fundamental principles of humane and democratic jurisprudence, this case also raises a further question. Was Younes perhaps arrested, like the Iraqi whose rumoured fate was mentioned by ‘Riverbend’, because he had seen—and in Younes’ case photographed—more than was good for him?

Agents provocateurs?

(you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetinfowars(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/articles/iraq/basra_british_special_forces_planting_bombs.htm"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetinfowars(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/articles/iraq/basr...nting_bombs.htm[/url]

Spokesmen for the American and British occupation of Iraq, together with newspapers like the Daily Telegraph, have of course rejected with indignation any suggestion that their forces could have been involved in false-flag terrorist operations in Iraq.

It may be remembered that during the 1980s spokesmen for the government of Ronald Reagan likewise heaped ridicule on Nicaraguan accusations that the U.S. was illegally supplying weapons to the ‘Contras’—until, that is, a CIA-operated C-123 cargo aircraft full of weaponry was shot down over Nicaragua, and Eugene Hasenfus, a cargo handler who survived the crash, testified that his supervisors (one of whom was Luis Posada Carriles, the CIA agent responsible for the 1976 bombing of a Cuban civilian airliner) were working for then-Vice-President George H. W. Bush.

The arrest—and the urgent liberation—of the two undercover British soldiers in Iraq might in a similar manner be interpreted as casting a retrospective light on previously unsubstantiated claims about the involvement of members of the occupying armies in terrorist bombing attacks on civilians.

The parallel is far from exact: in this case there has been no dramatic confession like that of Hasenfus, and there are no directly incriminating documents like the pilot’s log of the downed C-123. There is, moreover, a marked lack of consensus as to what actually happened in Basra. Should we therefore, with Juan Cole, dismiss the possibility British soldiers were acting as agents provocateurs as a "theory [that] has almost no facts behind it" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetjuancole(contact admin if its a beneficial link)"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetjuancole(contact admin if its a beneficial link)[/url] ?

Members of Britain's Elite SAS Forces

It appears that when on September 19 suspicious Iraqi police stopped the Toyota Cressida the undercover British soldiers were driving, the two men opened fire, killing one policeman and wounding another. But the soldiers, identified by the BBC as "members of the SAS elite special forces" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4264614.stm"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4264614.stm[/url] , were subdued by the police and arrested. A report published by The Guardian on September 24 adds the further detail that the SAS men "are thought to have been on a surveillance mission outside a police station in Basra when they were challenged by an Iraqi police patrol" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetguardian.co.uk/iraq/Story/0,2763,1577575,00.html"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetguardian.co.uk/iraq/Story/0,2763,1577575,00.html[/url] .

As Justin Raimondo has observed in an article published on September 23 at Antiwar(contact admin if its a beneficial link), nearly every other aspect of this episode is disputed.

The Washington Post dismissively remarked, in the eighteenth paragraph of its report on these events, that "Iraqi security officials variously accused the two Britons they detained of shooting at Iraqi forces or trying to plant explosives" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetsfgate(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2005/09/20/MNGSSEQNGN1.DTL"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetsfgate(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/cgi-bin/article.cgi?...MNGSSEQNGN1.DTL[/url] . Iraqi officials in fact accused them not of one or the other act, but of both.

Fattah al-Shaykh, a member of the Iraqi National Assembly, told Al-Jazeera TV on September 19 that the soldiers opened fire when the police sought to arrest them, and that their car was booby-trapped "and was meant to explode in the centre of the city of Basra in the popular market" (quoted by Chossudovsky). A deliberately inflammatory press release sent out on the same day by the office of Moqtada al-Sadr (and posted in English translation at Juan Cole’s Informed Comment blog on September 20) states that the soldiers’ arrest was prompted by their having "opened fire on passers-by" near a Basra Masjid, and that they were found to have "in their possession explosives and remote-control devices, as well as light and medium weapons and other accessories" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetjuancole(contact admin if its a beneficial link)"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetjuancole(contact admin if its a beneficial link)[/url] .

What credence can be given to the claim about explosives? Justin Raimondo writes that while initial BBC Radio reports acknowledged that the two men indeed had explosives in their car, subsequent reports from the same source indicated that the Iraqi police found nothing beyond "assault rifles, a light machine gun, an anti-tank weapon, radio gear, and medical kit. This is thought to be standard kit for the SAS operating in such a theater of operations" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetantiwar(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/justin/?articleid=7366"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetantiwar(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/justin/?articleid=7366[/url] .

One might well wonder, with Raimondo, whether an anti-tank weapon is "standard operating equipment"—or what use SAS men on "a surveillance mission outside a police station" intended to make of it. But more importantly, a photograph published by the Iraqi police and distributed by Reuters shows that—unless the equipment is a plant—the SAS men were carrying a good deal more than just the items acknowledged by the BBC. (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetglobalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=20050923&articleid=989"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetglobalresearch.ca/index.php?con...p;articleid=989[/url]

I would want the opinion of an arms expert before risking a definitive judgment about the objects shown, which could easily have filled the trunk and much of the back seat of a Cressida. But this photograph makes plausible the statement of Sheik Hassan al-Zarqani, a spokesman for Al-Sadr’s Mahdi Army militia:

"What our police found in their car was very disturbing—weapons, explosives, and a remote control detonator. These are the weapons of terrorists. We believe these soldiers were planning an attack on a market or other civilian targets…" (quoted by Raimondo)

The fierce determination of the British army to remove these men from any danger of interrogation by their own supposed allies in the government the British are propping up—even when their rescue entailed the destruction of an Iraqi prison and the release of a large number of prisoners, gun-battles with Iraqi police and with Al-Sadr’s Mahdi Army militia, a large popular mobilization against the British occupying force, and a subsequent withdrawal of any cooperation on the part of the regional government—tends, if anything, to support the view that this episode involved something much darker and more serious than a mere flare-up of bad tempers at a check-point.

US-UK Sponsored Civil War

There is reason to believe, moreover, that the open civil war which car-bomb attacks on civilians seem intended to produce would not be an unwelcome development in the eyes of the occupation forces.

Writers in the English-language corporate media have repeatedly noted that recent terror-bomb attacks which have caused massive casualties among civilians appear to be pushing Iraq towards a civil war of Sunnis against Shiites, and of Kurds against both. For example, on September 18, 2005 Peter Beaumont proposed in The Observer that the slaughter of civilians, which he ascribes to Al Qaeda alone, "has one aim: civil war" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_observer.guardian.co.uk/focus/story/0,6903,1572936,00.html"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_observer.guardian.co.uk/focus/story...1572936,00.html[/url] . But H. D. S. Greenway had already suggested on June 17, 2005 in the Boston Globe that "Given the large number of Sunni-led attacks against Shia targets, the emerging Shia-led attacks against Sunnis, and the extralegal abductions of Arabs by Kurdish authorities in Kirkut, one has to wonder whether the long-feared Iraqi civil war hasn’t already begun" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetboston(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/news/globe/editorial_opinion/oped/articles/2005/06/17/facing_factsin_iraq?mode=PF"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetboston(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/news/globe/editorial...in_iraq?mode=PF[/url] . And on September 21, 2005 Nancy Youssef and Mohammed al Dulaimy of the Knight Ridder Washington Bureau wrote that the ethnic cleansing of Shiites in predominantly Sunni Baghdad neighbourhoods "is proceeding at an alarming and potentially destabilizing pace," and quoted the despairing view of an Iraqi expert:

"’Civil war today is closer than any time before,’ said Hazim Abdel Hamid al Nuaimi, a professor of politics at al-Mustansiriya University in Baghdad. ‘All of these explosions, the efforts by police and purging of neighbourhoods is a battle to control Baghdad.’"

Whether or not it has already begun or will occur, the eruption of a full-blown civil war, leading to the fragmentation of the country, would clearly be welcomed in some circles. israeli strategists and journalists proposed as long ago as 1982 that one of their country’s strategic goals should be the partitioning of Iraq into a Shiite state, a Sunni state, and a separate Kurdish part. (See foreign ministry official Oded Yinon’s "A Strategy for israel in the 1980s," Kivunim 14 [February 1982]; a similar proposal put forward by Ze’ev Schiff in Ha’aretz in the same month is noted by Noam Chomsky in Fateful Triangle [2nd ed., Cambridge, MA: South End Press, 1999], p. 457).

A partitioning of Iraq into sections defined by ethnicity and by Sunni-Shia differences would entail, obviously enough, both civil war and ethnic cleansing on a massive scale. But these considerations did not deter Leslie H. Gelb from advocating in the New York Times, on November 25, 2003, what he called "The Three-State Solution". (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetmtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/iraq/three.htm"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetmtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/iraq/three.htm[/url] .

Gelb, a former senior State Department and Pentagon official, a former editor and columnist for the New York Times, and president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, is an insider’s insider. And if the essays of Yinon and Schiff are nasty stuff, especially in the context of israel’s 1981 bombing attack on Iraq’s Osirak nuclear reactor, there is still some difference between speculatively proposing the dismemberment of a powerful neighbouring country, and actively advocating the dismemberment of a country that one’s own nation has conquered in a war of unprovoked aggression. The former might be described as a diseased imagining of war and criminality; the latter belongs very clearly to the category of war crimes.

Gelb’s essay proposes punishing the Sunni-led insurgency by separating the largely Sunni centre of present-day Iraq from the oil-rich Kurdish north and the oil-rich Shia south. It holds out the dismembering of the Yugoslav federation in the 1990s (with the appalling slaughters that ensued) as a "hopeful precedent."

Gelb’s essay has been widely interpreted as signaling the intentions of a dominant faction in the U.S. government. It has also, very appropriately, been denounced by Bill Vann as openly promoting "a war crime of world-historic proportions" (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetwsws(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/articles/2003/nov2003/gelb-n26.shtml"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetwsws(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/articles/2003/nov2003/gelb-n26.shtml[/url] .

Given the increasing desperation of the American and British governments in the face of an insurgency that their tactics of mass arbitrary arrest and torture, Phoenix-Program or "Salvadoran-option" death squads, unrestrained use of overwhelming military force, and murderous collective punishment have failed to suppress, it comes as no surprise that in recent military actions such as the assault on Tal Afar the U.S. army has been deploying Kurdish peshmerga troops and Shiite militias in a manner that seems designed to inflame ethnic hatreds.

No one, I should hope, is surprised any longer by the fact that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi—that fictional construct of the Pentagon’s serried ranks of little Tom Clancies, that one-legged Dalek, that Scarlet Pimpernel of terrorism, who manages to be here, there, and everywhere at once—should be so ferociously devoted to the terrorizing and extermination of his Shiite co-religionists.

Should we be any more surprised, then, to see evidence emerging in Iraq of false-flag terrorist bombings conducted by the major occupying powers? The secret services and special forces of both the U.S. and Britain have, after all, had some experience in these matters.

You know how I and common sense know that the USA does not particpate in intricate plots such as putting bombs in cars, disinformation campaigns, and fooling the Shiites and Sunni's into attacking each other?

Because the Bush administration is too dumb and imcomptent. It takes them 5 days to get water to the super bowl after Katrina yet the US government is capable of highly intricate spy plots? Please. If the US had this ability like you and every other conspiracy theorist make it out, the war in Iraq would have been over and done years ago.

Fact- There's a reason so many US generals have quit in disgust, because the Bush administration is IMCOMPETENT!

Stop trying to delude yourself, the Shiite's and Sunni's didn't like each other log before the US got involved in anything.

Lost In Perspective.......I agree that Bush is a moronic liar who is being controlled, manipulated and used by his Zionist-Evangelist members of his cabinet to achieve Zionist objectives and goals such as protecting israel and defeating enemies of israel such as Iraq and Iran! And these Zionist-Evangelist members of his cabinet are controlling and manipulating the US regime and USA . They control CIA, the Pentagon etc and they shape the US foreign policy.

They know that if they allow Sunni and Shiites to cooperate and work together, the US regime and the US forces that are occupying Iraq illegally would face a formidable enemy that would be able to defeat the US regime and US forces and Bush and his cabinet would be impeached because of the defeat. In order to prevent defeat, the US regime and its allies have to pit Sunni against Shiites by using dirty strategies such as bombing Shiite Masjids so that the ignorant Shiites would retaliate by attacking Sunni Masjids etc. Then Sunni and Shiites would kill each other and start civil wars in Iraq. Then Bush would say that Iraq needs the US regime to save Iraq so the US forces would occupy Iraq for a very long time enough ( so that the US capitalists would have enough time to steal all the Iraqi oil! )

History has proven that the US regime, UK regime, israeli regime of terror have used dirty strategies to weaken their enemies!

A statement issued by the British consulate in Basra has said that London apologizes to the Iraqi people and government, Basra residents, city and province councils and the police force over mistakes made by the British

This comes after a British [army] unit stormed Basra police station and used force to release two British soldiers arrested by Iraqi police for the charge of seeking to carry out sabotage acts and stirring sedition among the residents of the city.

Britain to pay out over Basra rescue

GAVIN CORDON

The Scotsman

BRITAIN will pay compensation for injuries and damage caused during the storming by the army of a police station in Basra in the operation to release two SAS soldiers held by local Iraqi militia, it was announced yesterday.

In a joint statement, the British Consulate General, representing the army, and the Provincial Council of Basra expressed "regret" for the incidents on 19 September.

"We also regret the casualties on both sides and the material damage to public facilities," the statement said.

"The British government is prepared to pay valid claims for compensation for casualties and material damage."

The carefully worded statement expressed full support for the "dignity of the institutions and people of the governorate of Basra and the sovereignty of Iraq".

It said the British government would deal with "those connected to the events" in accordance with the legislation of the former Coalition Provisional Authority.

The statement will be seen as an attempt to rebuild relations between the army and the authorities in Basra ahead of Saturday's referendum on a new Iraq constitution and elections in December.

In the immediate aftermath of the incident, Mohammed al-Waili, the governor, attacked the British action as "barbaric" and warned that he would end co-operation with UK forces unless he received an apology.

An Iraqi judge also issued an arrest warrant for the two undercover SAS men following allegations by Iraqi officials that they opened fire after being stopped by a police patrol.

In the Commons yesterday, John Reid, the Defence Secretary, stressed he still "fully supported" the operation to rescue the two SAS men after it emerged that they had been handed over by the police to local militia.

Americans disguised in Arab Dress captured in the act of setting off a car bomb

Who needs terrorists or insurgents if we can do that job much better!!!!!

A number of Iraqis apprehended two Americans disguised in Arab dress as they tried to blow up a booby-trapped car in the middle of a residential area in western Baghdad on Tuesday.

Residents of western Baghdad's al-Ghazaliyah district told Quds Press that the people had apprehended the Americans as they left their Caprice car near a residential neighborhood in al-Ghazaliyah on Tuesday afternoon (11 October 2005). Local people found they looked suspicious so they detained the men before they could get away. That was when they discovered that they were Americans and called the Iraqi puppet police.

Five minutes after the arrival of the Iraqi puppet police on the scene a large force of US troops showed up and surrounded the area. They put the two Americans in one of their Humvees and drove away at high speed to the astonishment of the residents of the area.

Quds Press spoke by telephone with a member of the al-Ghazaliyah puppet police who confirmed the incident, saying that the two men were non-Arab foreigners but declined to be more precise about their nationality.

Quds Press pointed out that about a month ago, the Iraqi puppet police in the southern Iraqi city of al-Basrah arrested two Britons whom they accused of attempting to cause an explosion in the city. The Britons were taken into custody by the Iraqi puppet police only to be broken out of prison by an assault of British occupation troops. That incident has created a tense relationship between the British and the local puppet authorities in al-Basrah, Quds Press noted

La Stampa: israelis in Northern Iraq under Fake IDs

Similarly the Italian la Stampa daily paper reported that many israeli military men were in Northern Iraq under fake names to help the Kurds to establish a strong army. According to the La Stampa’s December 2005 report the first contacts between the Kurds and israel were established by Dany Yaton, former head of the MOSSAD. The paper also published the picture of the israeli soldiers in an Iraqi airport.

* ‘Illegal and Secret Operations’

In 2006, israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronot reported that the israelis in Iraq operated illegally and secretly. According to the israeli newspaper, their operations were against even the israeli laws.

It was understood that the israelis did not only provide equipments but also intelligence to the Kurdish leaders. Most of the israelis who helped the Kurdish military were retired officers according to the papers.

* The New Yorker: Kurds are israel’s B Plan

Seymour M. Hersh from the New Yorker was another journalist who revealed israel’e secret activities among the Iraqi Kurds. Hersh says in his ‘Plan B’ article of 30 June 2004:

“israeli intelligence and military operatives are now quietly at work in Kurdistan, providing training for Kurdish commando units and, most important in israel’s view, running covert operations inside Kurdish areas of Iran and Syria. israel feels particularly threatened by Iran, whose position in the region has been strengthened by the war. The israeli operatives include members of the Mossad, israel’s clandestine foreign-intelligence service, who work undercover in Kurdistan as businessmen and, in some cases, do not carry israeli passports.”

israel’s secret operations in the region have mostly disturbed Turkey. Turkish press claimed that israel had a secret agenda in the region arguing israel aims to establish a pro-israeli Kurdish state in Iraq. Turkey has been against separation of Iraq and has seen a possible Kurdish state as a threat to the regional peace and stability.

Baghdad Car Bomb Kills Seventy Five: Another Massive israeli Car Bomb

(you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_judicial-inc.biz/6_19_bomb_70_dead.htm"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_judicial-inc.biz/6_19_bomb_70_dead.htm[/url]

A car bomb struck near a Shiite Masjid in a busy commercial district Tuesday in Baghdad, killing at least 75 people and wounding more than 150. Gunfire erupted shortly after the blast, which a police officer said went off near the Khillani Masjid in the commercial area of Sinak.

As usual there were no witnesses, it was a remote detonation, and the target was innocent women and children. The intention is to inflame Sunni against Shiite and create a civil war. As to means, and motive, you can look at israel's operatives.

Are you claiming that the supposed Zionist world control conspiracy of all western countries is not true?

-Also during WWII Germany, Italy, Japan attacked countries of similar military might. These countries came together and fended them off.

If the US, UK, and israel decided to just bomb all middle eastern countries into the ground who would stop them?
The contries they would bomb do not have proper defense to stop that kind of attack?

Are you claiming other evil western countries would come to the middle easts aid?

MY COMMENT:

The hypocrisy of the US regime and its allies are very clear when they were afraid to attack and invade Russia, China etc of similar military might during the Cold War because these countries would come together and fend the US regime and its allies off. So the US regime attack, invade and terrorize weaker countries such as Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, Libya, Nicaragua, Panama, El Salvador etc! Therefore the US regime and its allies are a bunch of hypocritical cowards that terrorize defenseless and innocent civilians in foreign countries!!!

Are you claiming other evil western countries would come to the middle easts aid?


You are making slanderous allegations against me. It seems to me that you are so desperate that you twist everything into a lie !!! So far you do not show me any evidence to support your baseless allegations!!

British military involved in acts of terrorism in Iraq - According to statement of Iraqi army officer

IRNA | October 15, 2005

Baghdad, 14 October: An Iraqi army officer has said that the British military personnel and security forces were involved in acts of terrorism in Iraq.

The Iraqi officer, introduced himself to the Islamic Republic News Agency [IRNA] as Fayyadh Mas'ud, and said: The evidences at our disposal cannot be denied.

He added: Investigations show that the British Army's explosives and equipment were used in several instances of bomb blasts in Baghdad.

Mas'ud said: In this connection, the Iraqi authorities have asked for explanations from the British officials, but so far they have not given any clear answer.

Terrorist operations in various districts of Baghdad and other regions have turned Iraq into an unsafe place and thousands of civilians have been killed so far. However, America and Britain repeatedly say that their forces will remain in Iraq until full establishment of security.

Political analysts believe that America and Britain are undermining security in Iraq in order to justify their own presence.

The Iraqi officer did not provide any further explanation on the British involvement in the terrorist activities in Iraq.

At the same time, some news sources unofficially reported that several British nationals and Iraqis, hired as mercenaries by the British, have been arrested in connection with the recent explosions in Baghdad
