Friday's Dream or Short Notes on Sovereignty

Frankly I did not know what to exactly name this post. It all started with me waking up this Friday morning with another dream. More like a nightmare...


I dreamt, I landed in Baghdad airport. As I walked out of the main gate, I saw children street vendors, but they did not look very Iraqi to me. All of them had blond hair and blue eyes, then I saw ultra orthodox rabbis scurrying past...so I asked  "Are you sure I landed in Baghdad ? " And a voice replied "Yes this is the new Baghdad. Iraq's face has changed for ever..."

I understood from the dream that all these "foreign" looking kids were nothing but products of rape, in other words illegitimate children.  As for the rabbis, this is self explanatory...

Of course, this got me thinking about notions of Sovereignty and the pathetic, ludicrous, debates that are currently taking place before the up coming Iraqi elections. These so-called politicians hold discourses as if they are actually running a sovereign country. They have engaged themselves in a huge political lie and have ended up believing it, continuously constructing and perfecting the lie and thus feeding the U.S Occupation project.

Delusional parliamentary debates and vetoes, some believing they are actually making a difference. They are so far up the deception ladder, that they, themselves, have forgotten that they are the product of the Occupation, a bit like those bastard street vending children. They have forgotten that they too, are the product of a gang rape, the gang rape of the Zionist project. The Zionist project led by America and in which Iran the whore for Babylon, played  the leading role...

And while these illegitimate offsprings of the Occupation are busy debating, ratifying, vetoing laws from a draft constitution that remains pending, the main players of this circus, are pocketing illegal money, stolen from Iraq's treasures, be it oil or other...and while these clowns are busy gesticulating, the main players are busy signing oil deals, privatizing the country's wealth, opening the door for more rape and for more bastards to be born...

The last in line is the buffoon Talabani's visit to France.

I must be a seer of some sort. At least you can give me credit for that. This is what I wrote in October 2008, following another dream I had and am quoting from that post -  A Long American-Iranian Film.

" I dreamt I had a close encounter with Ahmadinejad in Basra. (Southern Iraq) We met in a parking lot, whose grounds were covered in sleek oil. A parking lot filled with huge transport trucks. A parking lot next to the docks, by the port of Shatt Al-Arab, where cargo ships transport oil. It was Ahmadinejad's territory...He moved about with no body guards and no protection. He even offered me a dirty get away weekend to Paris - it's a miracle I did not turn frigid after this dream. My interpretation: He will strike a deal with the Zionist Sarkozy and Obama will share Basra with him. And that is already being done...behind the cameras."

In 2008, France was not officially on the Iraqi scene. It is only in May 2009, that the French - Iraqi rapprochement started with Maliki's ├ęclair visit to Paris, accompanied by 200 businessmen and Obama hailed its great importance.  This was preceded by Sarkozy's ├ęclair visit to Baghdad's Green Zone in February 2009. And since Maliki's visit to France, serious bilateral talks between the French Ambassador in Baghdad and his Iraqi counterpart have been taking place followed by the last buffoonery act, that of  puppet President Talabani's visit to Paris and here I will be quoting at great length...so read on.

"PARIS: Iraqi President Jalal Talabani on Wednesday promised major deals – including large oil contracts – to French business chiefs keen to restore their place as Iraq’s top business partners. To warm applause, the Iraqi leader gave Baghdad’s strongest hint yet that it would grant French energy giant Total development contracts for two of its major oil fields at a rights auction next month. 

“You need to be brave, you need to be courageous and to invest in all sectors,” Talabani told a meeting with France’s influential Mouvement des Entreprises de France (MEDEF) employers’ association. “Iraq is a very promising basket for investors, without risk.

The 75-year-old leader said he wanted to see Total working in his country’s oil fields and would look favorably on its bids in an upcoming second round auction for exploration rights in Iraq. “We might favor a French bid whatever the figures. Don’t fear this auction …The figures aren’t everything. We want to see Total work in our oil fields,” Talabani said, to more applause from business leaders. 

Separately, Defense Minister Abdel-Qader Obeidi said Iraq “attaches a lot of importance to French arms,” hinting at further deals to follow the already announced purchase of 24 transport helicopters. 

Talabani has been given full honors during a three day state-visit to France that began Monday with a formal dinner with President Nicolas Sarkozy and has continued with talks with political and business chiefs. 

As President Sarkozy said, ‘This cooperation is a strategic choice for France and for Iraq"....

Talabani said his visit to Paris “has been a total success, a visit that has shown that doors are totally open to cooperation with France.” Total’s director general for exploration and production, Yves-Louis Darricarrere, confirmed his firm was putting together bids for the Majnoon and West Qurna oil fields, ahead of December’s auction. These fields are two of the most promising in Iraq and by 2016, Iraqi officials hope to see both pumping more than 1.2 million barrels per day. Forty-four companies are due to take part in bidding to develop 10 oil fields in the auction in December.

The warm overtures to France are in stark contrast to Iraqi attitudes in the immediate aftermath of the 2003 invasion, when many – including Talabani himself – were critical of French opposition to Saddam Hussein’s overthrow. 

After the war, US and British firms took the lion’s share of reconstruction contracts and France was partly shut out, although firms such as Lafarge cement have already managed to develop major investments. 

At the time of the war, when he was still one of the leaders of resistance against Saddam, Talabani warned that France’s perceived support for Baghdad would cost it lucrative contracts under the incoming regime. 
“Those who put their eggs in the dictator’s basket that their eggs will soon be broken,” he had said just weeks before the US-led invasion.

May I remind the reader at this point, that when President Saddam Hussein was being lynched, Talabani was eating caviar and drinking Champagne in his Georges V presidential suite in Paris, watching it happening on TV.

Bref, let's continue...

France’s ambassador now estimates that only 10 people die each day from bombings and attacks, and the French government shares its private sector’s enthusiasm for the market. (source here)

So you may asking yourself, yes so what ?

Well, re-read what I just bothered to write. The oil fields mentioned in the paragraphs above are situated in Southern Iraq. And Southern Iraq is known to be an Iranian enclave, run by the Shiite sectarian parties affiliated to Iran, of which Ammar Al-Hakeem of the Badr Brigades is a major smuggler. And this is just one example.

Furthermore, I really resent it when people are too lazy to connect the dots and start talking garbage politics when they are in fact ignorantly clueless.

What dots ?

I will give you the regional dots.

Iraq's rapprochement with France, is being done in parallel to Syria's great rapprochement to France where two developments are well worth mentioning :

a) Sarkozy's France is eager to play a proactive role in the Middle East peace talks by offering to host a summit to break the deadlock  and

b) while  Bashar Al-Assad's hails "trust" with France, and I quote : "Al-Assad hailed a "climate of trust" with France, welcoming a "resumption of good relations" between the two countries.Our correspondent said it comes after Sarkozy reached out to the Syrians a year ago. Remember they had a dreadful relationship when Jacques Chirac was president. Sarkozy said he was going to sort that out," Fisher (the correspondent) reported. "  it prefers "low level talks" with Israel mediated by Turkey.
 

Israel for its part, is "ready for Syria talks and calls to France to mediate."

On the Turkish front several interesting developments both domestically and regionally...

Turkey is active is solving its domestic issues with its own Kurdish population and in parallel has engaged in bilateral talks with Iraq's Kurdish leaders and is to open a consular section soon in Barazani's Erbil. Think Kirkuk oil fields. OK ?! Furthermore, there is a definitive Turkish - Iranian rapprochement, following the Turkish -Syrian enhanced relations where a) visas are no longer needed for citizens of these respective countries accompanied by enhanced economic cooperation  b) Syria is actively seeking a Turkish  mediation role in "low level talks" with Israel and Turkey has already provided that medium in the past.

Yes so what ? you're thinking to yourself again ...

Frankly at this stage, if you cannot see the bigger picture, behind the anti-Iran rhetoric by Israel, the U.S and its European partners, France included -- there's not much I can do more...

But being the generous soul that I am, I will give you one extra piece of the "puzzle" which is no puzzle at all.

Remember whom I saw in my Friday dream - the rabbis in Baghdad.

So while Palestinians and other Arab idiots are hailing Iran's "anti-Imperalist, anti-Zionist role", what is actually happening behind all those dots, is a comprehensive peace with the Zionist entity at the expense of those same Palestinians and Arab idiots who are barking in favor of Iran...hoping that the Whore for Babylon will deliver them...and behind the dots...while Iran is officially keeping up its anti-Israel rhetoric, behind the dots...it has turned U.S Occupied Babylon into a world Brothel.

Yes indeed, Iraq  before 2003, was the last bastion against both Imperialism and Zionism. And that is why Iraq today is no longer a sovereign country. And that is why Iraq had to be radically dismantled and have her face changed for ever.
