  1. The Missionaries In Muslim Lands

    The Christian missionaries have failed to tell Muslims about how the Christians used to seize most of the Masjids in Europe and turn them into churches and force Muslims and Jews to convert to Christianity and torture and murder or massacre Muslims and Jews who refused to be converted to Christianity. These Christian missionaries ignore the poor Christians in Christian countries while pretending to be good to Muslims in order to deceive them. They would not tell you how their Christian priests and missionaries rape and sodomize Christians in their own churches. The Christian missionaries would not tell you how they and their church incited and caused Tutsis and Hutus to torture, rape and massacre each other in Rwanda. Remember Rwandan Genocide ! And they will not tell you that Christians are reverting to Islam in Christian countries.

    Whenever I expose some truth, there would be some pathetic clowns and corrupt jokers like s. fong who will slander and insult me because they are very angry with me for exposing the truth. s. fong's slander above reflect her corrupt and immoral personality and I really pity her.
  3. Congratulation to Taliban forces for destroying the US military logistics: Source: International Herald Tribune Perhaps the most brazen attack came on Nov. 10 2008 when about 60 Taliban militants hijacked a convoy of trucks as it traveled through the Khyber road in broad daylight. To make their point, they offloaded a Humvee, called photographers and then, with rifles in hand, the Taliban posed in front of the vehicle, their banner draped over the hood. In December 2008 more than 100 trucks loaded with supplies for U.S. forces in Afghanistan were destroyed Sunday by militants in Peshawar, the city that serves as an important transit point for the Afghan war effort. It was the third major attack by Taliban militants on NATO supplies in Pakistan in less than a month, and served to expose the vulnerability of the route from the port of Karachi through Peshawar and over the border into Afghanistan. The United States relies on the route for an overwhelming proportion of its supplies for the war in Afghanistan. The damaged trucks were loaded with U.S. war materiel, including Humvees, said Colonel Greg Julian, a spokesman for U.S. forces in Kabul. The militants overwhelmed the rudimentary security system at two parking lots where the trucks were parked in the heart of Peshawar. At about 2:30 a.m., they easily disarmed security guards and then threw grenades and fired rockets at the loaded trucks. Militants attacked another parking area in Peshawar this month. About 12 trucks with NATO supplies were ruined in that attack. More than 160 vehicles carrying supplies for U.S.-led troops were destroyed by militants in Peshawar, Pakistan, on Sunday ( Mohammad Sajjad/The Associated Press ) :
  4. Bush Dodges A Shoe

    Thousands Of Iraqis Demand Release Of 'Shoe' Journalist Protesters in Baghdad call for al-Zaidi to be freed December 16, 2008 By Heather Maher Thousands of Iraqis have been protesting to demand the release of a reporter who threw his shoes at U.S. President George W. Bush in anger. Officials said Muntadhir al-Zaidi was being held in custody after the December 14 incident during Bush's surprise visit to Baghdad. Al-Zaidi called Bush a "dog" and hurled the shoes as the outgoing U.S. president was holding a news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. His act has come to symbolize the feelings of thousands of Iraqis who are fed up with the U.S. occupying force. He is by now probably aware that he has become an unlikely hero to thousands of Iraqis and Arabs across the region who are proud of him for insulting the man they cannot forgive for invading and occupying a country in this region. Insult Showing the sole of your shoe to someone in the Arab world is the rudest thing you can do, and calling someone a "dog" means you consider them "filthy." Al-Zaidi could face charges of insulting a foreign leader and if found guilty, could receive a sentence of up to two years in prison or a small fine. Huge crowds of people have been demonstrating in Baghdad and other Iraqi cities to demand al-Zaidi's release and echo his message to Bush. Ordinary Iraqis are praising al-Zaidi, calling him "brave," and what he did "awesome." Local media has quoted police officers, professors, dentists, and shopkeepers, all saying he did what every Iraqi would like to do. In Baghdad's Shi'ite slum of Al-Sadr City, thousands of supporters of radical Shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr burned U.S. flags to protest against Bush and called for al-Zaidi's release. Waving shoes and signs that read "Go Out U.S.A.," they chanted: "Bush, Bush, listen well: Two shoes on your head!" In Al-Najaf, a Shi'ite holy city, some protesters threw their shoes at a U.S. patrol as it passed by. Witnesses said the U.S. troops did not respond and continued on their patrol. Arab Praise For Shoe-Thrower The glee has spread across the Arab world. Pictures of the incident ran on the front pages of newspapers on the morning of December 15 across the region, some showing a shoe in midair, hurtling toward Bush's ducking head, a look of shock on al-Maliki's face. Satellite television channels showed the melee over and over, while on-air journalists made jokes and held discussions about the myriad ways they disagree with Bush. Al-Jazeera television even interviewed Saddam Hussein's former chief lawyer, Khalil al-Dulaymi, who offered to defend al-Zaidi. And Al-Baghdadiyah, the Iraqi-owned, Cairo-based television station where al-Zaidi works, aired continuous pleas to release their reporter against a video background of explosions and music that denounced the U.S. presence in Iraq. According to his family, both experiences, plus his daily reporting on the violent conflict, contributed to his passionate resentment of U.S. soldiers in his country. Al-Zaidi's sister has called him a hero, and his brothers have publicly defended his actions. His brother Uday praised his courage. "Millions of Iraqis, or rather millions of people in the world, wish to do what Muntadhir did, or something similar. Thank God he has got the courage to do it, and to avenge the Iraqi people and the country, and to stand up to those who plunder it and have killed its people," Uday al-Zaidi said. "More than 5 million people were orphaned by Bush and his aides. We thank God for everything that might happen to Muntadhir. We say thank God because Muntadhir has raised our head and the heads of the Iraqi people high." The incident came at a particularly bad time for Bush. The outgoing U.S. leader was on a surprise last visit to Iraq to put some polish on his long and controversial entanglement with the country.

    The fact is the whole world knows that Al-Zeidi the shoe thrower is being tortured by the US regime and the US puppet because he has humiliated GW Bush who is terrorizing and massacring innocent Iraqi people and occupying Iraq illegally: Albaghdadia, the TV channel where the Iraqi Journalist Montather Al-Zeidi works, reports that an Iraqi MP (Ms. Zainab Al-Kanani) informed them that Montather's hand was broken in jail. This confirms a lot of reports and rumors about Montather being subject to torture while the Iraqi authorities are interrogating and detaining him in some unspecified location.

  8. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed : The Diva Of Guantanamo

    The fact is the US regime has committed crime against humanity by detaining innocent Muslims without trial and tortured, raped, terrorized and murdered innocent Muslims and the US soulless corrupt agents and brutal immoral US soldiers have tortured the innocent Muslims mentally and physically and forced them to make false statements to frame themselves in Guantanamo Bay. The fact is the US regime has no evidence to implicate them so it detain them without trial for a long time and it doesn't even have any guts to try them in any US court of law. Therefore, it is correct to say that the US regime has equated itself to the Nazi regime, Fascist regime and Communist regime.
  9. Iraq Oil Revenue Soars, Creating Huge Surplus

    It seems to me that you don't even know the meaning of 'facts', 'right' etc. The fact is the US regime has broken the Geneva Convention, the International Law, the Nuremburg Principle, the US Constitution etc by attacking, invading, occupying and plundering Iraq and terrorizing and massacring innocent Iraqi people. The fact is it is the US regime that is controlling the US puppet powerless Iraqi regime to enable the US proxies to hijack and plunder the Iraqi petroleum and the petroleum dollars enrich the US cronies while the Iraqi people are living in poverty. In an article How the Bush Administration's Iraqi Oil Grab Went Awry, Dilip Hiro presents evidence detailing US ambitions for Iraq’s oil industry prior to the 2003 invasion. According to Paul O’Neill, the former Treasury Secretary under President Bush, and Falah Al Jibury an Iraqi-American oil consultant, Iraq and its vast oil reserves were discussed “within weeks” of President George Bush being elected in January 2001. The author sheds light on the falsity of assertions by Washington that the war was not about oil. In another article Greenspan, Kissinger: Oil Drives US in Iraq, Iran (September 17, 2007), Robert Weissman analyzes statements by Alan Greenspan and Henry Kissinger that the Iraq war is about oil. The U.S. with 4.5% of the world's population, uses 26% of the world's oil. In 2001, the U.S imported 54% of the oil it needed, importing 11-12 million barrels a day and producing about 8-9 million a day to provide the 20 million barrels a day the U.S. consumes daily. Since the invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003, much has changed. In the new setting, with Washington running the show, "friendly" companies expect to gain most of the lucrative oil deals that will be worth hundreds of billions of dollars in profits in the coming decades. The Iraqi constitution of 2005, greatly influenced by US advisors, contains language that guarantees a major role for foreign companies. Negotiators hope soon to complete deals on Production Sharing Agreements that will give the companies control over dozens of fields, including the fabled super-giant Majnoon. But first the Parliament must pass a new oil sector investment law allowing foreign companies to assume a major role in the country. The US has threatened to withhold funding as well as financial and military support if the law does not soon pass. Although the Iraqi cabinet endorsed the draft law in July 2007, Parliament has balked at the legislation. So this is how the US regime blackmails the US puppet Iraqi regime into allowing the cronies of the US regime to plunder the Iraqi petroleum.

    Proved wrong? The fact is the US regime and its proxies are plundering the Iraqi petroleum under the name of petroleum exploitation and business transactions while the Iraqi people are living in poverty. You look so foolish when you are trying to fool educated people like me. Please name all the oil companies that are operating in Iraq and the countries they are originating in.
  13. Bush Dodges A Shoe

    Yes a sad day for you and your clowns and jokers. Both the Nazi regime and the US regime terrorize and massacre innocent people under the pretext of war on terror. Why don't you say that Bush should be prosecuted for his crime against humanity in Iraq, Afghanistan etc instead of saying that the shoe thrower should be prosecuted for insulting Bush who is a mass murderer? Yes you are sure that Bush would agree with this as long as GW Bush is not prosecuted for terrorizing and massacring and occupying Iraq illegally. No one is above the law so why don't you prosecute GW Bush for his crime against humanity? An empty slogan? That is how a tyrant like GW Bush should be treated.
  14. Iraq Oil Revenue Soars, Creating Huge Surplus

    Report outlines plans for corporate plunder of Iraqi oil By James Cogan 8 December 2005 A report published in November by the London-based environmental and social justice network Platform makes clear that the invasion and occupation of Iraq was, and remains, a war for oil. The document, entitled “Crude Designs: the rip-off of Iraq’s oil wealth”, is a concise review of how Iraq’s vast energy resources, worth hundreds of billions of dollars, will be handed to transnational companies over the next several years. “Crude Designs” found that if just 12 of Iraq’s undeveloped fields are contracted in a similar fashion to comparable oil fields in Libya, Oman and Russia, transnationals will reap profits of between $74 billion and $194 billion in 2006 dollars over a 30-year period. The estimate, which the report describes as “conservative”, is based on an oil price of $40 per barrel. The current price is closer to $60 per barrel. The actual bonanza for the oil giants from the invasion of Iraq could run into the trillions. Out of the country’s 80 known fields, just 17 are currently in production. A further 63 undeveloped fields have an estimated 75 billion barrels of oil, while industry experts believe between 100 billion and 200 billion barrels lie in unexplored fields. The country also has enormous untapped reserves of natural gas. The Platform report establishes that control over these resources was the primary motive for the war. The first chapter draws attention to the discussion in US and British ruling circles on the strategic importance of dominating the oil and gas of the Persian Gulf. It cites the May 2001 report of the Bush administration’s Energy Task Force, which was headed by Vice President ###### Cheney. The findings declared: “The Gulf will be the primary focus of US international energy policy.” The terror attacks on New York and Washington on September 11, 2001, just four months later, were used to set in motion long-held plans for the military conquest of the region. In the months before the March 20, 2003 invasion, the looting of Iraq’s oil was the key consideration in Washington. The US State Department established a “Future of Iraq” project as early as April 2002. The project’s Oil and Energy group decided in four meetings between December 2002 and April 2003 that Iraq’s oil industry “should be opened to international oil companies as quickly as possible after the war”. Among the group’s participants was Ibrahim al-Uloum, an Iraqi exile with a PhD in petroleum engineering from New Mexico University. Al-Uloum was appointed oil minister in the US-controlled Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) and, with US backing, fills the same post in the current “transitional” government of Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari. The reason for Washington’s support is not hard to explain. In September 2003, Uloum told the British-based Financial Times that American energy companies should have “priority” over Iraqi oil fields. The contractual form agreed on by the US experts and Iraqi exiles for the development of Iraq’s oil industry was the Production Sharing Agreement (PSA). Platform characterises PSAs as an “ingenious arrangement”. They were first introduced in the 1960s as a means for circumventing constitutional obstacles or political opposition to the privatisation of nationalised oil industries. Under a PSA, the oil remains legally the possession of the state where it is extracted. Only the operation of the field is controlled by the foreign operator, generally for a period of 25 to 40 years. PSAs have proven to be a far more lucrative form of contract for transnational energy conglomerates than royalty arrangements. Under most royalty deals, the state takes a fixed percentage of the value of each barrel of oil extracted, regardless of the company’s costs or profit margin. Under a PSA, because the state still ostensibly “owns” the oil, the revenue from sales is firstly used to pay the company in full for its exploration, production and other capital costs. The remaining profits are split between the state and the company, according to an agreed ratio. The profit split generally appears to be to the advantage of the state with ratios of 60:40 or even higher. The companies, however, are guaranteed a return, as all their costs are covered before any profit-sharing begins. Moreover, they can increase their share of the total revenue by inflating their costs or by subcontracting work to their own subsidiaries. A PSA contract can also contain clauses that overtly advantage the company. One such PSA was signed by the Russian government during the 1990s. The agreement, which gave Shell control of the Sakhalin II project near Sakhalin Island in Russia’s Far East, stipulated that the Russian government would receive no share at all until the company had achieved a specified profit margin. Moreover, the Platform report notes that a PSA can specify that any disputes be resolved in international tribunals such as the US-based International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes or the French-based International Chamber of Commerce. These bodies are controlled by the major powers rather than the nation-state where the oil is being extracted. Summing up the essential characteristic of a PSA, a British academic cited by Platform wrote: “The government can be seen to be running the show—and the company can run it behind the camouflage of legal title symbolising the assertion of national sovereignty.” Naked corporate plunder The decision by the US occupation to apply this PSA model to Iraq amounts to naked corporate plunder. While common in countries that do not possess large reserves of oil and gas, or where the cost of the development of fields is substantial—such as offshore oil wells—PSAs are virtually unheard of in large oil-producing states like Iraq. Such nations either exploit their energy resources directly or use their bargaining power to negotiate far more equitable contracts. Platform points out that of the seven largest oil producers—Saudi Arabia, Iran, Kuwait, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates, Venezuela and Russia, which collectively sit on top of 72 percent of the world’s known reserves—only Russia has ever signed PSAs. During the first stage of capitalist restoration in the 1990s, when the Stalinist regime literally liquidated the state-owned assets of the former Soviet Union, Moscow entered three such agreements. All have cost the Russian state billions of dollars in lost revenues and are the subject of bitter recriminations. The most expansive period in the history of the Iraqi oil industry was between 1970 and 1979. Financed directly by the government, the state-owned Iraqi National Oil Company increased production from 1.5 million barrels per day to 3.7 million barrels per day, and explored eight of the largest new fields that still have not been developed. Iraq’s new constitution, however, was written by US officials and Iraqi collaborators with the occupation to exclude any possibility of this being repeated. The clauses referring to oil and gas establish the legal mechanisms for PSAs. Article 108 proscribes the direct privatisation of the energy resources by declaring that oil and gas “are the ownership of all the people of Iraq in all the regions and governorates”. Clause two of Article 109, however, stipulates that the different branches of Iraq’s government “formulate the necessary strategic policies to develop the oil and gas wealth in a way that achieves the highest benefit to the Iraqi people using the most advanced techniques of market principles and encourages investment” (emphasis added). Under PSAs, the transnational companies will not “own” Iraq’s oil and gas. Rather, they will develop the reserves according to “market principles” on the basis of one-sided contracts that “encourage investment”. Furthermore, the first clause of Article 109 stipulates that the Iraqi federal government only has authority over the “management of oil and gas extracted from current fields”. Article 111 declares that “all powers not stipulated in the exclusive authorities of the federal government shall be the powers of the regions and governorates”. The implication is that the federal government will control the 17 currently producing fields, while the 63 undeveloped fields, as well as any new discoveries, will be under the jurisdiction of the regions and provinces. In other words, PSAs can be signed for the exploitation of new fields with regional governments such as the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) in northern Iraq, or the provincial governments in the predominantly Shiite Arab and oil-rich south. The Platform report notes that of the 25 new fields named by the Iraqi Ministry of Oil in 1995 for “priority development”, 11 were in the south, 11 in the north and just 4 were in the central region. The constitution was ratified by referendum on October 15. Significant portions of Iraq’s oil can therefore be hived off to transnational energy giants regardless of who makes up the government in Baghdad after the elections on December 15, or how long the anti-occupation insurgency continues in the predominantly Sunni Arab provinces of central Iraq. Last week, this process began. The KRG announced that drilling had begun on the Tawke field in northern Iraq on the basis of a PSA signed with the Norwegian company DNO in June 2004. The agreement gives 60 percent profit to the Kurdish region and 40 percent to the company. The project is the first oil development by a foreign company in Iraq for 20 years. A veritable rush of PSAs can be expected over the coming period, with the terms likely to be even more favourable to the transnational companies than anything seen elsewhere. “Crude Designs” states: “The key issue here is bargaining power. The Iraqi state is new and weak, and damaged by ongoing violence and by corruption, and the country is still under military occupation ... the oil companies will inevitably wish to focus on the current security situation to push for a deal comparable to—or better than—that in other countries in the world, while downplaying the huge reserves and low production costs that make Iraq an irresistible investment.” The report points to a blatantly neo-colonial contractual clause that is likely to be inserted into PSAs on the demand of the US and other occupying powers—a stipulation against government interference over oil production rates. Platform observes: “Iraq would not be able to control the depletion rate of its oil resources—as an oil dependent country, the depletion rate is absolutely key to Iraq’s development strategy, but would be largely out of the government’s control. Unable to hold back foreign companies’ production rates, Iraq would also be likely to have difficulty complying with OPEC (Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries) quotas which would harm Iraq’s position within OPEC and potentially the effectiveness of OPEC itself.” A key objective of the major powers since the oil crisis of the 1970s has been to shatter the ability of the main oil-producing states to ever again ration world oil supplies. In the lead-up to the March 2003 invasion, the propaganda of the Bush administration and its international allies was that the war was motivated by the need to eliminate the threat posed by Iraq’s “weapons of mass destruction”, particularly its alleged efforts to acquire nuclear weapons. The invading powers also claimed to possess evidence of links between the regime of Saddam Hussein and the Al Qaeda terrorist network. These lies were the justification for a predatory and illegal war. While Platform did not dwell on the report’s political implications, “Crude Designs” provides ample data to underscore that the unanimity in the American political establishment that the occupation of Iraq must continue is bound up with vital economic and strategic interests of the most powerful sections of the American corporate and financial elite. “Crude Designs: The rip-off of Iraq’s oil wealth” is available in html and PDF format from Platform’s Unravelling the Carbon Web.

    Name the oil companies that are operating in Iraq now and the countries they are originating in. Since the American occupation of Iraq is illegal, all the business transactions carried out by the US regime and its proxies are illegal.

    fatimahbey's post above is refuted by its own content that says "The United Nations was not able to verify the reports " Now let us read the UN report below: UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) ÉﺪﺤﺘﻤﻟÇ ﻢﻣﻷÇ ﺔﺜﻌﺑ ÞÇﺮﻌﻠﻟ ÉﺪﻋﺎﺴﻤﻟÇ ﻢﻳﺪﻘﺘﻟ Human Rights Report 1 September– 31 October Protection of Human Rights Extra-judicial executions, targeted and indiscriminate killings 20. Terrorist activities and murders and extra-judicial executions, carried out by death squads linked to militias, often in collusion with or the support of the Iraqi police are the main cause of Iraqi deaths. Hundreds of civilians continued to be kidnapped and their bodies subsequently scattered in different areas of Baghdad, handcuffed, blindfolded and bearing signs of torture and execution-style killing. Many witnesses reported that perpetrators wore militia attire and even police or army uniforms. The perpetrators were reported to operate in groups, arrive in what appeared as police vehicles and were not deterred by the presence of police forces in the vicinity. Such killings have sectarian connotations and have affected all communities in the country, albeit to various degrees. 21. For example, between 11 and 17 September, the number of extrajudicial executions in Baghdad spiked dramatically. The media reported that over 180 bodies appeared in several parts of the Capital. On 22 September, 45 unidentified bodies were found in different areas of Baghdad: bound, blindfolded and bearing signs of torture. According to an eye witness, 6 members of the Sunni community were hanged publicly in front of a pharmacy in Nowab Al-Dhubatt neighbourhood between 25 and 28 September. 22. In October, the trend continued. On 14 and 15 October, a total of 46 unidentified bodies, with gunshot wounds and bearing signs of torture, were reportedly found in Baghdad and on 16 October alone, 64 more bodies were found in the capital. This UN report implicates the brutal US puppet Iraqi Interior Ministry and its death squads in the killings of innocent Iraqi people. General Yassin al-Dulaimi, deputy minister for the interior, has said on Iraqi television several times that death squads are composed mainly of Iraqi police and army units.

    I challenge you to name the oil companies that are plundering the Iraqi petroleum and the countries they are originating in. Iraqi is being occupied and dictated by the US regime illegally so the American occupation of Iraq is illegal and so is business transaction carrying out by the US regime and its proxies in Iraq. The US regime is plundering the Iraqi petroleum against the wishes of Iraqi people. Do you think that robbers have any rights to invade and occupy your home, terrorize your family and rob you of your money etc?

    The fact is Maj. Gen. Abdul-Karim Khalaf is the US puppet Iraqi Interior Ministry spokesman who is trying to condone the brutality of the Interior Ministry by feeding false information to the news agencies. We know very well that the US puppet Iraqi Interior Ministry is a brutal and sadistic organization and death squads from the Ministry of Interior are terrorizing and killing more innocent people in Iraq. A UN human rights report released September 2006 held the interior ministry forces responsible for an organised campaign of detentions, torture and killings. It reported that special police commando units accused of carrying out the killings were recruited and trained by U.S. forces. As I have said earlier, Muntadar al-Zaidi's sister and brother have confirmed that Muntadar al-Zaidi beaten badly in custody.

    Both the US regime and the Nazi regime are alike for inventing fairy tales as a pretext to invade foreign countries. Then they illegally attack, destroy, invade, occupy the foreign countries and plunder their natural resources such as petroleum and terrorize and massacre innocent foreigners. The US regime is an international terrorist organization that robs Iraqi people of their rights, freedom and petroleum etc. If a bunch of robbers have invaded your home, terrorized your family and robbed you of your money etc, how do you feel if I say this robbery is a fairy tale?
  21. Reports Of Shoe Throwers Injuries A Lie

    I have watched Muntadar al-Zaidi's sister on the tv saying that Muntadar al-Zaidi had been beaten badly in custody. She said so while the US puppet Iraqi regime was ransacking her house. Her statement corresponds to al-Zeidi's brother Dhargham's statement that Muntadhar al-Zaidi has a broken leg, cracked ribs, some injuries under his eye, and his leg is also hurting him. The news in the post above is a crude attempt by the US puppet Iraqi regime to condone the brutality of the US puppet Iraqi regime and to misinform and mislead people. After all, we know that death squads from the brutal Iraqi Ministry of Interior are killing more innocent people in Iraq so the ministry will not hesitate to beat and torture and frame Muntadar al-Zaidi for humiliating the US regime and the US puppet Iraqi regime.

    When the American and the British bombers fire-bombed Dresden in Germany and massacred hundreds of thousands of innocent German civilians, nobody cares to question the civility of the Americans and the British during the 2nd World War. In fact nobody cares to punish the US and the British pilots etc. When a Palestinian kills a Zionist terrorist who is trying to destroy the Palestinian's home, the hypocritical West questions the civility of the Palestinian man while ignoring the crime committed by Zionists against Palestinian people. When GW Bush and his American terrorists attacked and destroyed Fallujah in Iraq and massacred defenseless innocent Iraqi people, the West never questions the civility of the US regime. When an Iraqi man kills a US marine in order to liberate Iraq , the hypocritical West calls him the Iraqi terrorist. The West never question the civility of the US soldiers when they rape and murder an Iraqi girl or massacre an Iraqi family etc. The West is highly hypocritical.

TV reporter Muntazer al-Zaidi, who called Bush a "dog" at a news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on Sunday, was in a hospital in the heavily fortified Green Zone in Baghdad, his brother Maitham al-Zaidi said. "All that we know is we were contacted yesterday by a person -- we know him -- and he told us that Muntazer was taken on Sunday to Ibn-Sina hospital," Maitham al-Zaidi said. "He was wounded in the head because he was hit by a rifle butt, and one of his arms was broken."

    How civilized is the US regime when it invents fairy tales, attacks, destroys, invades and occupies Iraq, Afghanistan etc and terrorizes, rapes, tortures and massacres defenseless innocent people in Iraq, Afghanistan etc? How civilized was the West when it destroyed the countries and terrorized and massacred countless people in the West during the 1st and 2nd World Wars? The word 'civilized' is a joke to condone the crimes committed by the West itself against humanity! The West is practising double standard.
