"SADDAM" SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN "EXECUTED"
This morning there is talk of ending a dark chapter in Iraq's history.
A short trip to the CIA factbook tells us that Iraq gained its independence as a kingdom in 1932. The king of this kingdom was the Hashemite Faisal I, imposed on Iraq by Great Britain. In fact the whole of the Middle East as we know it is due to Great Britain and France drawing straight lines on maps during WW1 and arguing over who got to rule which set of lines.
So Iraq was initially ruled by Faisal I, who originated not from Iraq but another newly created kingdom, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia! The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was granted to the ibn Saud tribe for stabbing their fellow Arabs in the back after they had driven the Ottomans out of Palestine, thus permitting the mass Jewish immigration under British control into Palestine in preparation for the creation of the cruel and barbaric Zionist state of Israel. So for helping the British the ibn Sauds got Saudi Arabia and Faisal, as son of Hussein bin Ali who had driven the Ottomans out, got Iraq following years of rebellion by the people of Iraq against British rule which included Winston Churchill authorising the use of poison gas against the Iraqi people. So immediately we see puppets of Great Britain in control. Offspring of Faisal then ruled Iraq until 1958.
There was then a series of coups in Iraq, ending in 1968 with a coup by the Baath Party.
Before Saddam came to power in 1979 the Iraqi Petroleum Company had been nationalised and Iraq used the wealth from its oil to create a regional power of envy.
But then the CIA-trained Saddam Hussein gained power.
Almost immediately there were disputes with Iran. Saddam was armed by the USA and Europe to fight Iran in a decade long war. And then April Glaspie told Saddam that the USA, Saddam's ally against Iran, had no quarrel with Saddam invading Kuwait, an invasion which resulted in the Gulf War of 1991. Saddam was suspiciously left in power in 1991, and rebellions against Saddam which were encouraged by the USA were betrayed by them, resulting in the deaths of thousands of rebellious Iraqis. Then there was The Highway of Death incident in which thousands of Iraqis were massacred by the good folk of the USAF as they fled Iraq, an incident referred to in "Jarhead".
Then throughout the 1990's Iraq was bombed and bombed and bombed, and just in case that wasn't enough it was bombed some more, and all the while Saddam sat safely untouched in his palace. Madeleine Albright stated live on TV that the deaths of a half million Iraq kids was a price worth paying to keep Saddam under sanctions (sanctions imposed on Iraq due to the WMD which we had sold him).
Then PNAC wrote a "Get Saddam" letter to Clinton.
And then on 9/11 PNAC's dreams came true when Saddam attacked the USA!! (or so the lie was told and repeated ad nauseum). A few invisible WMDs were thrown in and Iraq was invaded in 2003.
So, why was Saddam left in power in 1991? Perhaps he had some blackmail material on Father Bush. If so why has it not been released now? Is it because the real Saddam died in 2000? Or was Saddam working for the CIA all along? When Saddam came to power Iraq was wealthy and a regional power held up as a shining example of what can happen in the Middle East. Now look at Iraq. A shithole, caked in blood and DU and its oil about to pass into the hands of the Anglo-Americans.
I ask, was Saddam part of a long term CIA operation to regain control of Iraq's oil while keeping oil prices high and driving Iraq's economy into an abyss ready for exploitation by Anglo-American corporations?
The chances of finding the answer to that are now virtually nil, which is why I think Saddam should not have been executed.
Dead Saddams tell no tales.
The real Saddam may have died in 2000. Or may be laughing his head off in a mansion in Portugal. Or may have swung this morning.
As ordinary citizens of the world we are not supposed to know these things, only believe in "Life : The Movie" as scripted for us by the likes of the CIA and MI6 and Mossad.
