Why ?


Yes why?
What for?
What does it say about you? What does it say about your countries? What does it say about your institutions? What does it say about your governments, your "culture", your "civilization", your history, your "progress", your "values", your concepts...?

Have you ever stopped and pondered these questions? Have you ever stopped and asked yourselves ; how come?

How come we are so advanced, how come we are so democratic, how come we are so great, how come we are so free...And how come we allow so much murder, oppression, abuse, go unaccounted for ?

Have you ever asked yourself this question ?

I was just listening to the BBC World radio. A report from Oxfam - and in your eyes that makes it credible - over 70 % of us Iraqis, no longer have access to clean drinking water.
I say no longer have because I remember not so long ago, one could turn on the tap and drink. As simple as that.

The report goes on to say that over 50% of Iraqis are under nourished and 1 out of 3 is literally starving. And that 50% live in abject poverty. 50% !!!

Again, I remember a time, even during the "civilized" sanctions that your countries imposed upon us, everyone had to eat. Not much, but there was food.

The Iraqi government had developed a system of rationing that, to this day, still leaves your top U.N reps in awe.

When I mention that in my posts, I am accused of waging a war of disinformation, psy-ops and being a paid agent.

Now you listen to me and you get off your butts and read. Educate yourselves, oh great people of the West.

A few years back, you could not even locate Iraq on a map . Now you have all suddenly become experts on Her.

Prior to your liberation, there was no starvation in Iraq. Prior to your liberation, there was no abject poverty, the kind we witness today. Prior to your liberation, kids did not stutter out of fear. Prior to your liberation, they went to free schools, learned, grew up and became full functioning adults, with degrees, diplomas and expertise. No, we did not have learning impediments before your liberation.
Today 92 % of Iraqi children suffer from it. Today, 99% of Iraqi children are traumatized for life.

So I ask you again - Why ?

What have Iraqis done to you? Did they invade you? Did they steal your homes? Did they imprison you? Did they torture you? Did they rape you? Did they occupy your lands?

Of course, some of you will come and present me with your usual condescending, paternalistic, patronizing lists of political theories, attempting to explain the inexplicable.

Save your time and energy. I know all about your theories.
I know all about your theories of imperialism, neo-cons, zionists...I also know all about your handy explanations regarding oil, cartels, monopolies, globalization...

None of that satisfies me. I still need to know why?

Why us? why Iraq? why this? why now?

If you fail to answer that question, then you would have not learned one single thing about yourselves.
And I say yourselves, because your governments are a reflection of who you are, your aspirations, your mindsets, your thinking, your illusions...You are part of it and it is part of you.

And all I can see right now are nothing but murderous thoughts - yours.

A few days ago, I was reading an article about a french film producer called Alain Tasma who has just finished directing a film on the Rwandan Genocide.

During "Operation Turquoise", between 700'000 and 900'000 Rwandans perished.

None of you, not a single one of you, had any objections to calling it a Genocide.
It was a given, it was accepted, it was fact. And rightly so, because it was a genocide.

But when it comes to Iraq, all sorts of counter figures pop up. All kinds of other statistics are put forward to try to prove "well, yes but"...

Again my question is why ?

Why did you accept it without questions in the case of Rwanda, why did you accept it without questions in the case of the Holocaust, why is it when it comes to Arabs and Arab Muslims in particular, it becomes a topic for debate and nit picking? And "it" refers to Genocide.

Can you answer this question?

Why is it that what happened over 60 years ago in your lands, still makes you grovel in mortification and supplications of forgiveness but when it comes to us, you have so many "red flags"?
Your phrases are almost always qualified with a "yes but..."

What does that tell me about you? It tells me exactly what I said earlier on, you and your governments are one and the same.

And you will come and say "yes but... I did not vote", "yes but, I sent an email", "yes but....yes but...yes but..."

I don't care for your "yes buts". I truly don't.
And that applies to all of you. All of you whose goverments have a finger in the Iraqi pie.

If you had really wanted, you could have easily gone out en masse, in front of your government's offices...
If only 5 million of you, not more, only 5 million, had done that and had thrown your passports in a huge bonfire in front of your White house, 10 Downing sreet or wherever the hell you happen to be, then I am sure, we would not be experiencing what we are experiencing now.

There are also mass pickets, sit ins, huge demonstrations, strikes...

There are ways, many ways. You just need to get your "creativity" going. Or maybe you are just creative in killing us?

I don't care much for your opinions and comments anymore. Actually I don't give a damn.

All I know is that you have participated directly or indirectly in the crime. That is all I know.

But there is still a little hope left.
Go and sit with yourself for a little while and ask yourself why and then ask yourself what am I supposed to do next?
I can assure you, answers will come to you.

For those of you who prefer to sit and engage in quid pro quos of ifs and buts, then I can already tell you in advance, you are a hopeless case. And I will not even bother to ask why.

There seems to be a shift lately in American consciousness. In one place another I read Americans tell other Americans that it is no longer enough to blame Bush, we must look in the mirror, at ourselves - and ask, as you are - why?

I see this as a sign that knees are beginning to bend under the weight of the sins Americans collectively carry on their backs.

It is really the bravery of the Iraqi resistance that is holding up the mirror, and you dear Layla, with your unrestrained passion. (You remind me of Picasso's drawing of the woman holding up the mirror to the Minotaur, who recoils in horror at his ugliness).

Here is one of those articles I've read:

I am glad to have found your website. More people in the west need to hear words such as yours.

I would never insult you by offering excuses for the behavior of our "leaders." All I can offer you is my apologies, and even these are brittle.

I can assure you that the pickets, sit ins and demonstrations do happen - but what good is it? Nobody in the government responds to these measures. As for burning my passport - believe me the thought has crossed my mind. But what good am I to you or to my family if I disappear into the prison system? And there are many prisons here. More than anywhere in the world. There is that word you hate - "but". I beg your forgiveness. We do not want this for you, for anybody.

I would like to talk to you more, to come to some accord. What good faith effort can my people make that will have a real effect on your people? Is there anything we can do together?

If it makes you feel any better, my world is becoming more like your world on a daily basis. Complete with ignorance, pestilence, poverty, kidnappings, seizure of property, and yes dear - droves of helicopters black as night. Perhaps there is justice, after all.

Diana,

A rectified response.
Thank you for the link. I failed to see when I first read it that there was a praise of the Mahdi army as being anti occupation.
I can tell you for a fact that the Mahdi army has done nothing but kill other Iraqis who happen to be pro resistance and anti occupation.

And even though I like the blogger style of writing, and appreciated his piece on Saddam Hussein when he was lynched by the Americans and the Iranians in which al Mahdi was very present during the execution, I still cannot bring myself to agree with that point he made. Not only that, I am sorry it escaped my attention. These kind of fallacies about the Mahdi thugs have to be exposed. And that does not diminish the fact that I like his style of writing and his overall approach.

On another note, Picasso hated women or at least treated them very badly - that may also give you a hint or two as to the nature of the beast. :-)

Hello Kate and thanks for visiting and your comments.

I understand that those who oppose have a lot at stake... I am not sure though that burning a passport and 5 million of you doing it means ending up in jail.
But I can understand the reticence.
My question still remains what about our innocents in american jails..in their own country? with no lawyers, no charges, no legal counsel, no judges, no bail...
What happens to them...should they rot away?
After all who invaded who?
And when will it end...?
If everyone of you have reticence...why should we pay the price of your comfort? Pay with our futures, our lives, our livelihood, our children, our homes... I still have not found a satisfactory answer.

I know why.
In order to “colonize” new lands, we must not see it as unoccupied by people. Remember? “A land without a people for a people without a land.” Or the “natives” are not humans. This is how the US soldiers view the Iraqis, how the “pale faces” saw the native Americans, how the “pales faces” saw the Australian Aborigines, how the Zionists see the Palestinians, and on and on. Remember, both America and Australia were once penal colonies, "hosting" the rejects from the UK. Is it any wonder that these three countries are major players in Iraq? Criminals don’t need brains. They most likely never had any. So can they answer, “why?”
Sorry, Layla, you don’t exist. You are not a “pale faced criminal.”
The article “The Least Useful Reaction to Terrorism is to Dismiss it as an Inscrutable Evil” By Jenni Russell, (ICH-“The Guardian”) was rather interesting and I cannot comment on the comments. I maintain that the acculturation of the West does not allow for an understanding of anything outside of their world. The comments on Jenni’s article vividly indicates the depth of ignorance. Some of those who have lived in other “countries” or educated themselves accordingly, come close to an understanding.
If every “yes but" will deliver a drop of water, your well will be full.
“What does it say about you, your countries, your institutions, your governments, your culture, your civilization, your history, your progress, your values, your concepts...?”
It is “saying” in Iraq. The Iraqi “conquest” says it all.
Several years ago, I came upon an expression, and I realized “Why.” The expression was “you are the product of a Third World University.” Yes, I am and am I proud. The product of American Universities are “producting” in Iraq. The US is governed by some "Ivy leagued" draft dodgers. True "patriots."
Now you may understand why there is only one answer, “yes but.” The western education system cannot accommodate any other answer.
“oh great people of the West” great guns + great bombs = small minds.
“Prior to your liberation, there was no starvation, no abject poverty, kids did not stutter out fear, they went to free schools, learned, grew up and became full functioning adults, with degrees, diplomas and expertise. No, we did not have learning impediments before your liberation.” Sorry, Layla, you did not get Wall Street’s permission to do all these things. I grew-up in a country where “we did great” without Wall Street. Our democratic government was accused of being communist and engineered out of office by the CIA/MI5. We became one of the most indebted countries in the world. Hooray for Democracy.

This is from a Rosa Brooks column in the LA Times a few weeks ago:

"It's hard not to conclude that collectively, we were all too cowardly, slothful or puffed up with our own self-importance to ask the right questions and stand up for principle. The administration didn't trick us; we tricked ourselves.

Someday, the Bush era may come to seem like a bad dream, a shameful, inexplicable interlude in American history. We're right to be outraged by Bush and Cheney, but we should also save a bit of outrage for when we look in the mirror."

http://rosabrooks.squarespace.com/jul-6-2007-shame-on-bush-an

There's that mirror metaphor again...

But it's more than just a "bit" of outrage that is required of the American people, it is something much greater... and it's coming.

It is a despicable situation, that unlawful detention has become the chief American export. There is no excuse - it is evil, mingled with incompetence. And it is coming home to roost. Increasingly we are seeing arbitrary detention and seizure in America. It is -nothing- to what you see on a daily basis, but any fool may read the writing on the wall.


Layla also said:

"why should we pay the price of your comfort? Pay with our futures, our lives, our livelihood, our children, our homes... I still have not found a satisfactory answer."

There exists a very romantic notion of high standards of living here. But the fact is that the plunder of your country is not for the benefit of the American people. It is for the benefit of a small group of greedy bastards with no respect for the rule of law, in any nation. Increasingly, they are eroding our existing liberties - all the while hoarding your resources and killing your neighbors. And it is frustrating and enraging. You are no more financing my dubious comfort than I am beating down your door.

(I know you could give a rat's ass about American liberties. But I miss them the way you miss clean water.)

Is there any existing way people can send money or other donations so that it will not be squandered by intermediaries? Are there reliable, non-american-infested agencies building roads? schools? utilities? Many people would give.

Is that a stupid question? Am I off the mark? I can no more go there than you can come here.

I have Layla. A long time ago. I am ashamed, but the truth is, we mostly just don't think, and some even don't care, about what happens in Iraq - or anywhere else, unless it's happening to US PERSONALLY.

Sorry, all other westerners here, but this is the truth. I have experienced one attitude or the other when I bring up Iraq (or Afghanistan, or Rwanda, Or Palestine) far too often.

This is the truth as I see it. And I understand you can't forgive us. I don't think I'd be able to forgive either if I were you.

Wrong: Those without benefit(s) please throw the first stone. I teach some young American males who glorify West Point, The US Military Academy. They will pursue their career at West point, after they graduate with their engineering degrees. Their education buys me a table before populating it with food. I cannot throw any stone.
Now, who makes the military uniform, the Humvees, the Bradleys, the Sniper Rifles, The M-16, the A-130, B-130, C-130....Z-130; get my drift before I drift off the edge. The military is consuming military wares, of all types, at a much higher level than in peacetime. Logic: The destruction of other people butters our ill-gotten bread, and serves us Coca-Cola from the soda machines The Military Industrial Complex powers the US economy and provides bread-and-butter, otherwise called jobs.

ya barboog,
You sure miss all those petro dollars of the Shia that you and your ilk had been munching for decades while their children were dying of starvation .
So YOU ARE THE IRAQI NOW? And not they whose forefathers have for over seven thousand years inhabited Mesopotamia and founded human civilization there. I was amused that your next post is titled "Babylon" and you seem to lay claim to it. What has Babylon got to do with you? Babylon is our heritage, we the indigeneous inhabitants of Mesopotamia. And if you don't like that, you are welcome to return to your native land--the desert of Najd where you can revive your traditions especially perfuming yourselves with camel urin, nourishing yourselves with lizards and pass your time fighting over a goat! Remember all of this?
So the Americans are occupiers and colonizers. What about yourselves, you lizard-eating desert rats?
And you have the nerve, yaa barboog, to slander the Mahdi Army. Of course. You're used to killing us without a response. You mistook our love for peace for weakness! Now you've learnt otherwise!
I see you have a list of before/after in your post. I shall add a few more here:
-before the liberation you were living off our toil and sweat; now you're probably whoring out a living.
- before the liberation Saddam and Uday were terrorizing innocent people; now they are corpses.
-before the liberation, you and your ilk were occupying our beloved Iraq; now we are lords in our lands and those of you who are not on the run work for us. And that is how it should be.

Don't you think it's high time to get together as IRAQIS to deal with the common enemy? It (the common enemy) does not discriminate between the different ethnic groups in Iraq, and everyone is dying, escaping, suffering, irrespective of ethnicity ....later, all wounds and differences can be resolved, perhaps through a Peace and Reconciliation process, among just you, Iraqis? Please think deeply of the heritage you will be leaving to future generations of Iraqis, and the current and real suffering of today's children, whatever their ethnic background....

THIS STATEMENT IS JUST NOT TRUE....you are ignoring the recent history of Iraq and the slaughter brought on my Saddam and his gang. Tens of thousands of people murdered...many many whole families and children put into warfare. He is responsible for the killing of Iraqi culture. He maintained peace in certain areas for a certain few at a huge cost to the Iraqi nation. He played the S & S Syndrome to the hilt and then swallowed the sword leaving his people in TOTAL shambles. The blood ran for years between Iraq & Iran, powering the front lines with children, even after that the slaughter continue all around Iraq. Plus the "boys" ran wild raping young brides on their wedding day, torturing, maiming and killing football players. Saddam killed Iraq.

All that has been done in Iraq has been done at the hands of the S & S, and they are delighted about it, it's the war that Saddam kept under control by murdering thousands, building MASSIVE HATRED between all people of the land, building it up so much that he himself had to hide from his own people, and repeatedly kill his own family members and staff to keep from being assassinated. This huge hatred is now still boiling in blood, everyday all peoples of the region are killing each other, boiling S & S (Shite & Sunni) real deep hatred built on "religious lies" and passionately fired up by Saddam's leadership and the leaders of Persia.....fired to this ridiculously murderous boiling point. I do not justify the western invasion with this statement, but that invasion is not responsible for this wild spread murderous civil war. Give that credit to the S & S Syndrome promoted so heavily by your local imam. NO, the west does not have that kind of power over such an old culture. That can only be done by you and your leaders.

Zeinab has writen the most ignorant piece I have sen in my entire life. Babylonians were semites whose language very close to Arabic, they along with Syrianics and Egyptians are the forefathers of the Pennisula Arabs.

TRhe entire history of ancient Mesoptamia has been a series of settelments from the Arabian pennisula. The sam argument goes fo the levant and Egypt. It seems to me that Zeinab has an Iranian blood- and feels jalous that Iraquis (Babylonians) the ancestors of Arabs educated th barabric persians and brought them civilsation. The entire Persian culture is a cheap imitatio o the IRAQI ONE. THE ARABS during MEDIVALS CREATED A COSMOPOLITAN CIVILSATION, AND ONLY THEN WHEN IRANIANS WROTE IN ARABIC AND WERE RULED BY ARABS THEY HAD SOME CONRIBUTION TO HUMAN CIVILIASTION.

However unlike the Arbic civilstion of Babylon and Pharoanic Egypt it was not original in content.

You have too many "buts". There are so many in the West that think the invasion of Iraq was morally justifiable. Now they just squirm and either try and change the subject, or leave.

Zainab mentioned the indigenous people of Mesopotamia. I have always held the belief that was the Assyrians. What do you think?

You ask why?

The answer is simple. Iraq sits on the last and largest remaining undeveloped concentration of easily accessible oil on the planet. It is your curse.

Western powers need that oil. It is an urgent need, required to maintain a non-negotiable, profligate, amoral, selfish, santimonious 'superior', 'advanced', 'civilised', lifestyle. It is not your oil and anyone with the temerity to suggest that the West be denied access to it on their terms will be dealt with. It really is that simple. In matters deemed fundamental to Western interests, anyone, but anyone, getting in the way had better make sure they can deal with US covert ops, dirty tricks and military capabilities first. Otherwise, in the manner of countless genuinely representative governments over the past 60 years, they will not remain governments for long - and to hell with the 'collateral damage' of millions killed, maimed, tortured and dispossesed in the process. 'Collateral damage' sound sooo clean and sanitised doesn't it?

Most Western populations are ignorant of all this, and inured - not to say indifferent - to your suffering. They believe what their governments tell them: that we are their to fight 'the enemies of Freedom'.

Layla, you speak of fingers in pies.

Well check this out:

While Iraqis in FOREIGN capitals rejoiced over the game, at home, they were being persecuted by the peshkhara.

I guess kaka barzani showed us how interested he really is in Iraq's "unity".

Erbil, 31 July (AKI) - Kurdish security forces in the northern autonomous Kurdistan region of Iraq have arrested 50 young people who were waving the Iraqi national flag to celebrate the country's victory in the Asian Cup football.

A police officer in the Dohuk province said those arrested were predominantly Christians or members of the Yezidi minotiry, a religious community which passes on its beliefs via oral tradition.

For the autonomous Kurdistan region, the flag is a particularly sensitive issue. Security forces in the three northern provinces of Dohuk, Erbil and Sulamaniya have been ordered by the government to arrest anyone displaying the Iraqi national flag - considered a symbol of Arab nationalism and a reminder of the repression of Kurds under the regime of Saddam Hussein

The regional president Massoud Barzani last year replaced the national flag with a regional flag.


I have to wonder now how implicit then Barzani is in attacking other revelers. Could it be possible a lot of the attacks in Baghdad are the work of peshmerga and foreign agents in collusion?

After all, weaken the base and the peripheries gain more self-control, no?

Weaken Baghdad, destroy its power, destroy its people and you can do what you want in the outlying regions.

Nice.

I wonder how many of these 50 will be alive after this. After all, everyone knows of the ethnic cleansing the peshmerga have been enforcing in the north.

to understand whats happening to iraq, you have to understand genocide in western history as a whole in the 20th century- from north and south america, to asia, to africa and now to the middle east (each time "democracy" was the excuse)...might i add that the worst genocides that the west was responsible for happened in the "civilized" west in world wars one and two- tens and tens of millions perished, evaporated, disappeared (almost seems like the blood spilled in iraq is just an appetizer compared to that)...and it almost seems like second nature when it comes to the death and destruction they can cause...they are what they are...we can cry forever or we can fight back...we can point fingers at them uselessly and ask them to change, or we can point fingers at ourselves especially the saudis who are supposed to be the "guardians" (of tel aviv?) of that black rock we dance around.

who was it that brought the yanks to the middle east? who was it that lets them use their bases to attack iraq? who was it that stood silently while the yanks were plotting the attack- even though using the same logic that was used to attack iraq, it is saudi arabia that should be destroyed cuz 15 of the 19 "hijackers" came from the "kindgom" but that ain't happening cuz the saudis are playing on the same team as the yanks...why afghanistan? why iraq? why not saudi arabia? why do they wanna attack iran now? they wont, but actually i wish they invade iran so they too can get a taste of freedom, since the iranians didn't mind having iraq invaded in the first place and they seem to be enjoying it in iraq- they're actually indirectly participating in its occupation...if we can't see how the saudis, iranians, and the others (jordanians, egyptians, and the rest of the gulf states) are co-conspirators with the chosen ones and their yankee lapdog and that they have to be taken care of, what hope do we have with their american master?

Hi layla,

It appears that Ann Clwyd may be visiting your site, along with her friends in the Dawa and Communist Party.

Some of the comments being posted here are similar to those of the US backed "democrats" and they are also trying to "convince" us, by using emotional language.

The posting by annon is a clear example: "Saddam kept under control by murdering thousands, building MASSIVE HATRED between all people of the land, building it up so much that he himself had to hide from his own people, and repeatedly kill his own family members and staff to keep from being assassinated."

What makes this interesting is that it almost reads word for word, like Iraqi Opposition interviews, arguments, leaflets, articles etc from the 1980's and declarations made at conferences in the 1990's.

The foundation of these arguments, really began around the late 1970's, after the National Unity was ended and many parties were outlawed but what gave the substance was the executions of Revolutionary command Council members..

The claim that "I do not justify the western invasion with this statement, but that invasion is not responsible for this wild spread murderous civil war.".

Whilst this person may believe this, what is actually being said, is that the occupation, a puppet regime, the theft of resources, the destruction of ancient sites, mass unemployment, poverty, malnutrition and destitution has nothing to do with the present situation.

It is an attempt, and I have heard this perspective by all the Green Zone Parties to say that the conflict is in people's heads, the attacks against troops are by die hard loyal "saddamists" and the death squads are all "Al-Qaida".

What is always amazing though, is that the question of facts never seem to enter into the discussion but the entire argument is based on generalisations and what my neighbours cat said.

Did you hear that Saddam used to throw babies out of incubators in Kuwait?

Did you know that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and could blow us all up in 45 minutes?

Did you know that Saddam helped Al-Qaida plan 9/11 and was a fundmamentalist?

Did you know know that Saddam supressed democracy in Iraq?

I have no axe to grind. I am a UK citizen who dissowns the actions of his own government. I know that the conduct of our foreign policy will be influence hardly at all whichever mainstream party is elected. It has been so for the past 60 years - and for a clear though largely hidden reason - OIL.

Why do you think the House of Saud remains in power? Why do you think the US/UK engineered the overthrow of Mosaddeq in Iran. If not oil, then what do you think constant US/UK/French etc interference is all about? would the West be anywhere near the ME if your principle resource were lettuce and tommatoes?

Can I suggest you read up on 'Peak Oil' (a google search should suffice). The US with 5% of the worlds population consumes 25% of its oil production. It's lifestyle (near totally dependant on expanding consumption of cheap oil) we are assured by The Shrub, is 'non-negotiable'. Maximum possible world oil production is close to (or already past) its peak with over 80% of what's left of the total endowment owned by national governments, the vast bulk of it in the ME and Caspian Basin. The US/UK and all Western governments have been well aware of all this for decades now, such that it has been (and remains) an immutable but unspoken 6 decades principle of US foreign policy, that those governments be required to see things the US way - OR ELSE.

Also, They also tryed to change the language from Farsi to Arabic, but thanks to Ferdowsi they did not achieve this. You Sir are the jealous one. Look at Iraq before the war and look at Iran. NO COMPARISON!!! I would much rather perfer Iran. Persians are not jealous of anything! Maybe you are jealous because Iranians have moved to Iraq and brought up the prices of homes (mostly in Najaf and Karbala) there and the average Iraqi can no longer afford to buy a home????

P.S. I am not Iranian or Iraqi!! I am just a lover of history. It's a shame that All of you Middle Easterners can not get along and love each other and except differences about each other, but Arabs and Persians don't like each other anyway...WHY????

Pride comes before a fall, Zainab, in case you don't know this.

The only way you may get your hands on it could be through the sacrifices made by the Iraqi Resistance.

I never thought I'd say this, especially if you are Iraqi (which I highly doubt, given your choice of language) but you are truly a disgrace. Instead of the awful comments, you might do something about the innocent young Iraqi girls whose rights are being abused just about everywhere, just because they are desperate to survive - considering you have quite a bit of knowledge about this kind of work.

On this blog which I've followed for some time now, you happen to be the worst, and that makes what you write utterly disgusting and distasteful. Shame on you...

Babylonians, Syrianics, and Egyptians were about to become the fathers of the Arabs but the camel beat them to it! .

No, I don't have Persian blood in me; all my blood is Sumerian, Akkadian, and Babylonian! If I did, I would freely admit it. After all, the Persians had a great classical civilization and like it or not, their and our Mesopotamian histories are intertwined. Maybe you didn't know, yaa shaaTir, that Baghdad was a Sassanian town before it became the capital of Abbasid Iraq, that its name comes from Middle Persian and means "the Gift of God, just as the name "Iraq" is Middle Persian for "the low lands" as opposed to the mountains to the east.
You say that "Arabs educated th barabric persians and brought them civilsation."
Are you referring to the Arab civilization of mixing milk with camel urin before drinking it? Or perhaps to the practice of raping nine year old girls by men in their sixties? Glad you didn't civilize us this way!

To the stupid anonymous:

I'm an Arab, an Egyåptian man, so it doesn't make sense that someone like me would be jealous of a PERSIAN DIRT.

Iran is a loser country by all means, with all this tremendous oil reserves they have a GDP per captia tha is more or less equal to the oiless resourcless Egypt. That goes as well for level of technological embeddment and instutional effienecy.

As for Iraq, having defeated Iran in 1988, it came out of the war as the most developing and progressing country in the entire Arab/Muslim sphere. If you check Unesco and UN Devlopment reports you would know what I'm talking about- I'm sure you can read and write.

Also dont forget that prior to the American invasion, Iraq had been subjected to a brutal medival genocidal siege for 14 YES FOURTEEN YEARS.

It clear you idiot, that you know nothing about middle eastern history. The Achaemenids(Persians) were bloody naked barbers in the IRANIAN PLATEAU WHO SACKED the ancient Arab world and copied babylnian culure and ways to mix it witheir original Barabric and Indian ways. IT IS REALLY FUNNY THAT THE PRIDE OF IRAN, THE PERSPOLIS TEMPLE IS BUILT ON IRAQI STYLE (BABYLONIAN).

Iranians hadnt any contribution to human civilsation exept for El Rasy and some others who lived in the 11th and 12th centuries, long after the weakeing of Arab central power in Bahgdad. But still, they opted to write in the sophisticated Arabic language of sciense.

History says that th greates muslim scientist of all times was Alhazen- Al Hasan Ibn Al Haytham who was a pure Arab.

As for Iranians who moved to Iraq, I guess they had better leave because they make the country unclean. As an Arab I feel bad to know that Iranians and likes are moving into the land of thei lords and masters

Persians never had a civilsation 2Achamenids" and 2Parthians" were steppes Barabrs who sacked Babylong, the levant and Egypt. They never had an original culture or civilisation.

Sabretache: the US also needed a "compliant" regime in Iraq, so that it would "secure" future oil revenues and also to help "secure" Israels future in the Arab world.

Around two weeks before 9/11, the US asked the Taliban to build an oil pipeline through Afghanistan. The Taliban said no and next thing you know all hell breaks loose.

Even upto the run up to the Iraq invasion, contracts on "oil reconstruction" had been already handed out to "compliant companies" and those closely associated with the Bush Administration.

Also take a look at what is called "the encirclement approach" by the US and the fact that the Americans themselves admit they have also "neglected Latin America".

What you wrote today is very important, and something everyone needs to think very deeply about. The tragic reality is that thousands upon thousands are suffering both inside and outside Iraq: it's being said that this is the greatest human movement ever. The pictures of little children looking lost and dazed is heartbreakingly painful.. Individual stories of those who have managed to escape, and who are barely managing to survive; those stuck at the borders living in makeshift camps with no food, water and basic amenities; those getting killed in their attempts to flee; those getting killed by bombs - only today, 14 members of one family lost their lives when their home was bombed, and that is just one news item...surely, there's so many more.

Yet, today, for the first time, your blog has had some posters, who are obviously sitting very comfortably somewhere without a care in the world, and so have all the time to write insults. They have managed to reduce the magnitude of the suffering of the people and concentrated, instead, on their own selfish agendas.

Thank you for everything you do, Layla, when you speak for ALL Iraqis, despite the fact that you have to do all this without access to continuous electricity, water. You have my greatest respect and admiration. God bless, always.

In solidarity.

Whether you like or not- Christians, Jews, Arabs, Germanics and Berbers all flourished under th Arab rule and created a tolerant magnificant civilsation that was main source of the European renaissance.

I can assure you that no one has ever left with a wimper or even a whine but always with a purr and a great roar.

Some lions can never be tamed.

I wouldn't want to tame a lion, not when you have the build of a bear.

That's a gross simplification I should have expected from an arab monkey.

You scum will get stomped on from all sides as the oil wars proceed... and you deserve it.

regarding the "shroogeeyah" slave zaynab.

Raghad and I agreed that we needed a shoe shiner and thought we could do with something like zaynab.
But we remembered that our shoes were cleaner than her face so we decided against hiring her.
we now think it is best that she stays the filthy piece of whore that she is, selling her ass to american soldiers. we both wish her increased oil revenues as a result of her fruitful cooperation with her masters.

Why? Because you had Weapons of Mass Destruction. Remember?

That would be a joke Layla if it were not so tragic. The pain of this crime is written in your posts.

My country was not part of the coalition of the killing. Yet I am still ashamed of it and every other country that refused to join this disgusting crime.

Not one of them placed boycotts and trade sanctions upon the criminal nations. The very least of a demonstration of outrage.

They placed a few bucks over the lives of the Iraqi people.

Layla has not actually said no to me yet . . .
I think that maybe Layla might be looking for a younger man, lol!]

No, I think because she watched you getting butt fucked by the Dawa guys, SCIRI, Allawi and Chalabi, not to mention the Pentagon studs!
You're not much use to anyone now, Iraqi Democrat, are you!
The thing is: she needs to get "serviced" right; you're too busy getting "serviced" yourself. Not a good match,if you ask me.

Glad you liked the link. Here is another one for you and Layla (or just click on the name link above)

Salam Layla,

The Barazani/Talabani dynamic duo never cease to amaze...Here is an article I read today about people being arrested for raising 'yes, you guessed it' the IRAQI FLAG in Kurdistan.

------

Baghdad - Security forces in Dohuk city in the Kurdish Autonomous Region in the north of Iraq arrested 50 Kurds for waving the Iraqi flag to celebrate the victory of the Iraqi national football team, a police source said Monday.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, 'The Kurdish security forces seize anybody carrying the Iraqi flag, even for one hour.'

The region's president Massoud al-Barzani had earlier ordered that the Kurdish flag would replace the Iraqi one in all the cities of the autonomous region.

On Sunday, the Iraqi national football team won the Asian Cup title for the first time in its history.

I am not surprised that Raghad is looking to hire a shoe shiner considering how she has come to respect shoes lately. Sweetheart, just take a look at this link (or click on the name above) and you will know how impressed she must have become by the action of shoes:

Cum on, anonymous. A dog would have constructed a better sentence than this!

Zainab,
you're too dirty and stenchy to serve as a rug for me, so you just keep on feeding on the cum of your beloved "Dawa guys, SCIRI, Allawi and Chalabi, not to mention the Pentagon studs"!

That's quite alright, doggy.
Take care and please stay away from that pervert "anonymous." Call the Animal Welfare Department, if necessary.
Lots of love

There's getting to be so much junk amongst the comments that it's really hard to find the gems. This is sad. Your post deserved much better.

I agree with you, Daphne. Some really awful comments here, so different from our usual, even if we don't agree all the time.
