The Gates of Hell are wide open...


Welcome to Baghdad.

Today 12 innocent Iraqis, dead throughout Baghdad . A mortar hits the "fortified" Green Zone - only material damage it seems.
The "Iraqi" government will be signing a half a billion Dollars arms deal with America. The reason? The security situation necessitates more american weapons.
I guess not enough Iraqis are killed so far...
They really would like to apply Bremer's recommendation of bringing the total number of Iraqis to 6 million. "It is more than enough" he was overheard saying.

Welcome to Gaza.

Yesterday, 5 cowardly, criminal, nazi, Israeli air raids on Gaza. The last one was at 12 am (sunday). A whole family of 7 member killed on the spot. Carbonised bodies taken out from under the rubbles by "rescue teams" which are none other but the residents of Gaza.
Today during the day, more air raids and more dead.
Is it not enough that Gaza has nothing ? No infrastructure, no employment, no proper running medical facilities, no food, no functional sewage, no nothing. But to top it all off the exclusive "Jewish state", the "beacon of democracy" in the Middle East bombs innocent civilians in the middle of the night who have nothing and are left with nothing...

Welcome to Beirut.

Over 30 Lebanese soldiers dead in Nahr al Bared clashes with some obscure "Jihadist" group. 12 fighters dead. Meanwhile the innocent Palestinian civilians of Nahr al Bared camp are without electricity, no running water and under siege.

The following day, at 12 am to be more precise, a car bomb placed in the Ashrafieh neighborhood in East Beirut kills a 63 years old woman and injures between 6 and 8 innocent passers by. A commercial area that is filled with people on a late Sunday night.
The area is "predominantly christian" (I know you love this "predominantly" business.)
Today, another car bomb in West Beirut, the Verdun area, a "predominantly muslim" area, injures 6 innocent people, two of which are children.

Any link between all these events you think?
Do remember what I said in one of my previous posts "Despair".
"Neighbors" would love to see Arab speaking countries turned into tiny statelets.

Analyze it and interpret it the way you like. You may find handy explanations that fit your agenda and you may call it civil war, sectarianism, civil strife...
Call it what you like...The end result is the same.

The New Middle East of the New World Order is a bit like the Hotel California song by the Eagles: "You can check out any time you want but you can never leave"...

And the gates are wide open. Welcome, welcome...Welcome to the Middle East.
