Musings On Current Events in AmeriKKKan Insanity

Musings on Current Events

“US forces also sometimes found it convenient to feed the Zarqawi myth. Most experts believe his foreign fighters make up only a fraction of the insurgency, but the US military portrayed Zarqawi as its most dangerous foe in Iraq. The $US25 million ($33.79 million) price put on his head matched the bounty on bin Laden. The Washington Post reported this year that internal military documents showed the US military mounted a psyops (psychological operations) campaign to magnify the role of Zarqawi in the insurgency. ‘Our own focus on Zarqawi has enlarged his caricature, if you will, made him more important than he really is,’ military intelligence officer Colonel Derek Harvey was quoted as saying.” - Zarqawi 'more powerful as a myth' From correspondents in Dubai 09jun06 http://www.heraldsun.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5478,19414553%255E1702,00.html

The only good news the Bu$h administration has been able to muster recently is the alleged killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi the Jordanian Al CIA Qaeda “terrorist”. After touting Zarqawi as second only to Osama bib-Laden as international public enemies and not being able to capture or kill Zaqawi, his death via betrayal and US air strikes in my opinion is one more fishy incident that begs critical examination. The US Global War on Terrorism is as real as a three dollar bill and that takes into consideration the fact US legal dollar bills are barely worth the paper they are written on.
Al-Qaeda the supposedly world wide Islamic terrorist network is a creation of the US CIA and the corporate media mind control apparatus. The Mujahideen guerilla Islamic radicals who battled Russians during their invasion and occupation of Afghanistan during the 1980's was promoted , armed and funded very generously by the United States funneled through Saudi Arabia and Pakistan as part of AmeriKKKa’s proxy war against the Soviet Union. Out of this hodge-podge of radicals funded and encouraged by the US CIA evolved Osama bin-Laden and his followers. bin-Laden and his cohorts, buoyed by their success in Afghanistan, embarked upon a wider war against the “infidels” and what he called “The Great Satan” meaning the United States of AmeriKKKa. The illegal and ruthless US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq caused negative reaction to AmeriKKKan imperialism throughout the Muslim world and rightly so. As the resistence to the Anglo-AmeriKKKan occupation of Iraq grew, a figurehead emerged promoted by US mainstream media to symbolize the barbarism of the resistence fighters named Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Zarqawi was supposedly Osama bib-Laden’s main man in Iraq, the leader of the Al-Qaeda insurgency on Iraq.
The Western propaganda apparatus portrayed Zaqawi as a ruthless and bloodthirsty maniac in juxtaposition to the good Anglo-AmeriKKKa “liberators” and promoters of Democracy (despite the fact bringing Democracy to Iraq was not the original reason Bu$h gave for invading Iraq and deposing Saddam Hussein.) But then again AmeriKKKans have very short memories. Al- Zarqawi was just what Bu$h and Co needed absent any real connection or relationship between Saddam Hussein, al-Qaeda or Osama bin-Laden who the US seemed to have given up on capturing “dead or alive” as Bu$h famously uttered in the early days prior to the Afghanistan invasion. As there is virtually no good news coming out of Iraq for the Bu$h administration Zarqawi’s death (or someone they are claiming is Zarqawi) can be touted as “progress”, much like the enemy body counts the Pentagon announced during the Viet Nam era to prove AmeriKKKa was “winning” that war. Perhaps Zarqawi was a real man but as a terrorist, he may have been a mere pawn in the Anglo-AmeriKKKan intelligence and media psy-op chess game. An article on the Blog www.AntiWar.com by Justin Raimondo suggests essentially the same thing, “Remember that deal with the Iranians, which was supposed to have Tehran handing over a group of al-Qaeda operatives in exchange for the heads of the Mujahideen al-Khalq? A son of Osama bin Laden was said to be one of the al-Qaeda operatives; another was reportedly Zarqawi. The neocons nixed the deal, however: that was purportedly the purpose of a meeting of Michael Ledeen, Larry Franklin, and a group of Iranians held in Rome before the war. Zarqawi subsequently found his way into Kurdistan, where he was reportedly identified and targeted by the U.S. military, which wanted to take him out then and there. The response from higher-ups in the administration, however, was negative: they needed Zarqawi as a convenient propaganda icon, living proof that ‘we're fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here.’
An important part of Powell's infamous presentation to the UN, you'll remember, was focused on the alleged connection between al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein, embodied by Zarqawi. The terrorist leader, said Powell, supposedly established two dozen ‘al-Qaeda affiliates’ during his two-month stay in Baghdad. Powell also touted a satellite photo of a camp he claimed Zarqawi set up in northeastern Iraq devoted to the mass production of poison. The camp turned out to be bogus, and the Zarqawi connection proved equally dubious. But the propaganda war – the one directed at the American people – was more important to this administration than the real war on the ground, and that is why an earlier opportunity to kill the Mad Bomber was lost.” http://www.antiwar.com/justin/?articleid=9114
Many people think Zarqawi and Osama bib-Laden are both dead and have been dead for a long time. “Al-Qaida's leader in Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is dead but Washington continues to use him as a bogeyman to justify a prolonged military occupation, an Iraqi Shia cleric says in an interview. Sheikh Jawad al-Kalesi, the imam of the al-Kadhimiyah mosque in Baghdad, told France's Le Monde newspaper on Friday: ‘I don't think that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi exists as such. He's simply an invention by the occupiers to divide the people.’” http://english.aljazeera.net/NR/exeres/73570F02-EA07-492F-9E04-C080950DF180.htm Saturday 17 September 2005, 8:12 Makka Time, 5:12 GMT
For rank and file Iraqis, reports of Zaqawi’s demise are no bg deal, more of a “good riddance to bad rubbish” thing. In fact the mainstream media is saying Iraqis sold Zarqawi out. “Tips and intelligence, authorities said, helped pinpoint al-Zarqawi's whereabouts. Some of that information may have come from a senior al Qaeda in Iraq figure arrested in Jordan on May 22; more came from Iraqi civilians in and around Baquba; and Special Forces troops tracking al-Zarqawi's spiritual adviser developed still more, with help in at least one instance from those inside al Qaeda in Iraq, authorities said.” http://edition.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/06/08/iraq.al.zarqawi/ It appears a confluence of factors were responsible for Zarqawi’s demise this time: his usefulness as a propaganda tool ran out, he was a liability to the resistence and his ruthlessness turned off even supporters fighting against the Anglo-AmeriKKKan occupation. So in true US fashion they offed Zarqawi or someone they are claiming is Zarqawi to gain maximum press and Washington jubilation from his death.
