We should celebrate by replaying GWBush's speech on the aircraft carrier.Or maybe the one about how Iraq was free.Or the one about spreading democracy to the Iraqi people?Tough choices.

In 04 there was a report to the effect that used cars from the US were being loaded at FBI direction with scant manifests onto ocean going transport vessels destined for the Middle East.

Norma lly manifests are detailed as to particulars of owners and their agents, but these were not detailed.

C learly these cars had been stolen off the streets of America for transportation to Iraq to workshops at US army bases for conversion into ‘suicide’ bomb cars.

The God of the sauds - "hadha amerikin" and its 20,000 Green Zone mercenaries is not being targeted? Says a lot.

Somebody please tell the Ayrabs, its much cheaper to keep a million sniffer dogs than buying jet fighters to rust in military hangars.

Maybe a qualified Muslim person can explain why innocent men, women and children have been massacred?


It's all about the American-Anglo agenda of divide and conquer, regime change, and the securing of Iraqi oil reserves. The United States has proven over and over again that it couldn't care less about the common and everyday people.

The Washington inspired democracy in Iraq is obviously not working very well. What an absolute mess has been created, as the suffering continues for the common and everyday people.

But for the United States, regime change was accomplished and the massive oil reserves in Iraq are now under western control. It was an incredible Washington inspired deal: blood for oil (Iraqi blood that is).

Its so sad to see innocent people dying in cold blood. RT is doing good job to expose the crimes of USA (United States of Terrorism).

The US isn't a democracy...

[quote name='logical-americ an' time='08.11.2013 18:38']3 major factors create the violence in Iraq:

Nice explanation but one that paints Such a rosy picture of US involvement. Iraq wouldn't Be in this mess if Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld hadn't been so greedy to get their grubby little hands on Iraqi oil by inventing a pretext for invading or are you forgetting WMD?

Yet here in the US people are freaking out over one person being shot and killed in an airport or three be shot in a shopping mall. Peoples perspectives are so skewed that they usually do not even try to look at these issues on a global level because for the most part we here are not even capable of comprehending this level of death.

sionists have made a good job to ignitite a sectarian war within the iraki population..that's something these evil souls are very goog at.
False flag ops are their favorite and always have.
911 was also a good one, although WTC 7 did not collapse as expected but only 7 hours after the twins....

Meanwhile, somewhere in the lap of luxury, Bush and Blair walk free.
