Iraq, Iran and all that deadly Jazz...

To be frank with you, and I have a few vices but dishonesty is not one of them, I'd rather be doing something else than report your crimes back to you. But am also a firm believer in the simple motto that if you love something, give it your 110%. Unfortunately for you men (apart from l'oiseau rare - the rare pearl) my motto is non applicable...

I've titled this post -- Iraq, Iran as both seem to be have become one country...
Of course this is something I have not stopped repeating since I've started blogging...

I have been walking around with a series of printouts, in Arabic, which I took time to distill and condense adding to them a bit of fresh news gathered here and there, from different sources...

I feel like a private detective, who knows who the culprits are but keeps gathering more information, cues, to prove her case...in some invisible court of law.

I'd much rather be dancing to some love tune, writing poetry or engaging in fiction...I am no journalist and never aspired to be. Reporting is bland, flat, boring as hell...but, and that is probably my only consolation, detective work is not...

I like detective work, because it involves the trusting of intuition, a good deal of creativity, a strong sense of instinctive smell, and an eye for the detail, coupled with the seemingly innocuous information that comes your way...

Bloody hell, what an introduction for a simple post to give you the latest news from Iraq and Iran...But how else can I capture your attention ?


Let's start with Iran since this one seems to be the main, major, player these days...in Iraq, in the region and on the international scene. Once am done with Iran, I shall move to Iraq, the pistachio republic, for now at least.

Iran

In one of my previous posts, which really revolved around a premonitory dream, and which I called the long American-Iranian film, I affirmed that Obama will hand Iraq (or at least parts of it) to Iran, pending on the nuclear dossier. I also mentioned a French role in this and named Sarkozy in person. Do refer to that post. I am too tired to fish out for you, so do your own search.

Well, according to the heavy pack of printouts I have been carrying all day, in Arabic and trying to translate...one in particular stuck out. Namely, that according to Time magazine's issue of 19th October 2009, Obama has been engaging in SECRET talks with the Iranians for the past 4 months regarding the nuclear dossier. A middle ground solution was found, and this was run by the Russians and the French, namely that Iran's uranium will be processed in Russia and shipped back to Iran into a higher grade type.
Now am no nuclear scientist so don't rely on me to give you the exact formula of how this is done...

And coincidentally,to confirm the above, I just learned that :

- Iran revealed another nuclear underground plant in Qum. Adding that it did not reveal its location before, i.e during Bush's time, from fear of an Israeli/American attack. Now it has come out clean to Obama with the exact location.
Today 4 inspectors will be flying from Vienna on their way to Qum to inspect. Just right now, the US is asking Russia and France to be more lenient on the Iran nuclear dossier, since Iran has shown "good faith" by revealing locations. Russia has agreed to take Iranian uranium at 3% (whatever that means) and return it to Iran at 20%, thus ensuring that the level of Uranium is indeed used for peaceful purposes.

So where does Sarkozy and France fit in ?

I am a naive woman, Ala Bab Allah, like they say in Arabic, but my hunch tells me that Sarkozy and French companies will fit in some Basra oil deal. Stay tuned for that one...soon.

Now let's get back to Iraq. And please don't take those distinctive paragraphs as all delineating. They are very much intertwined. But Iraq, as in any satellite country only feels the ripple effects...

Now, I know that some of you don't mind it too much that Iraq has become a satellite of Iran, and that Kurdistan is on its way to become a totally independent region...
I am sure that the "left", in particular, don't mind...neither do the Arab "leftists" nor their Palestinian counterparts, nor the fundies i.e fundamentalists from the Muslim Brotherhood, and definitely not the majority of the Shiites.

But I do mind. I mind and thousands like myself mind...but right now we have more important occupiers to deal with, than you - garbage.

Iraq

According to a body of Iraqi analysts, the QUDS brigades of Iran have infiltrated the judicial, political parties, parliament, police and armed forces at the highest levels. In other words, they are affirming what J. said to me upon his return from Baghdad - Iran is deep into Iraq.

More bloodshed is expected for the status quo to remain as is -- i.e to keep that balance of power tilting very much in favor of Iran before the elections. And much will be done to ensure that this is so before the upcoming elections.

It is also in the interests of the Americans to keep it that way, in view of what has been said above regarding Iran's nuclear dossier. Kindly use your gray cells, if at all.

It is important for the Americans to keep some semblance of something...I will not use the word victory here, because it is SO OBVIOUS that America has failed with a big F in Iraq, be it on the military, political or economic level...America after 6 years of occupation and promises of being welcomed with candies and flowers is still unable to secure a basic minimum of security in any part of Iraq.

For me and for any perceptive person, it is absolutely clear that the Iraqi Resistance has foiled the American plan on all levels. And please don't be so dumb and naive as to assume that the American media will come out and say - Sorry folks, we failed. Things don't work that way in politics.

What America is desperately trying to do on the other hand, is to consolidate its primary agenda for Iraq, i.e the partition along sectarian and ethnic lines and in order for this beast to do so, it needs Iran and its further collaboration. Only then, can the show of troop withdrawal be credible...

I surely hope that you understand that basic, very basic ABC of face saving portrayed as political gain...but as usual am not holding my breath.

In that sense, and related to it, the "green revolution" in Iran was very important for Iraq. It denoted that the Iranian people, were against the Wilayat Al Faqih project for the region even though the protests came under the heading of "Reform".

And from the reactions from the Iraqi people's side, it was also all too clear that the Iraqis alongside the Iranian people had become all to aware of the FASCIST nature of the Iranian rule both in Iraq and in Iran.

And I have not meet one Iraqi, who condemned the protests in Iran...apart from the Shiite stooges affiliated to the sectarian parties. On the contrary they seemed to welcome it. The only ones who condemned it apart from the Shiite puppets of the American occupation, were the leftists, Arabs and Palestinians included, arguing that this was some CIA/Mossad affair.

I am not sure where this "velvet, green revolution" stands today. I never trusted or had any faith in Mussawi or Ayatollah Pistachio Rafsandjani, (refer to Vultures and Pistachios post for added confirmation), and I am seriously wondering...and as I predicted, I believe that this "velvet revolution" has fizzled out...

Which brings me back to square one...

So as in any satellite country, the news are brief and don't evoke much fervor or passion...


Let's start with the Dead...

- Al Anbar province : 4 civilians killed by an IED MADE IN IRAN. Reminder: Al-Anbar is an all "sooneeee" province, or has become so.

- Tikrit : another all "sooneee" area. 2 Killed after a suicide bomber detonated...

- Baghdad : Several explosive devices hidden behind billboards/posters were found, in central Baghdad. Nice creative work from Iran, I must admit.

- Green Zone Baghdad : A 5 million dollar American base is being developed, overseen by a certain Tom Robinson, employing some 200 workers. Will serve as a base for the U.S marines in coalition with the puppet Iraqi forces. (What troop withdrawal ?!!)

- "Kurdistan" - the darling of the "left" and the "Arab revolutionaries".
Special visit by Susan Rice (is she related to the witch Condi by any chance?) is visiting Erbil and has met with warlord - oil, drug and arm smuggler, Barazani (whose salary is 1 Million dollars per year). They both agreed that KIRKUK should be left out of the elections as it holds a special status for the Kurds. How novel and who would have guessed !

- Iraqi heritage : a) an auction sale is being held in Germany comprising of Iraqi antiquities. The Iraqi ministry of "Culture" asked them to please refrain.

b) other boxes of Iraqi antiquities have been found being smuggled to Iran.

c) according to the latest report from Babel and Nasseriya, Iraq's ancient monuments and statues have been hacked into pieces and sold on e.bay.

They called it the Revenge on Iraq's History...

But that's another chapter...dear, very dear to my heart...and I promise to give it back to you 110%.
