:: information from occupied iraq
:: informazione dall'iraq occupato

Il cosiddetto memoriale di Downing Street, rivelato dal Sunday Times di
Londra sin dal 1 maggio 2005, ha dominato i mezzi di informazione inglesi e
i lettori di Internet in America. Il memoriale è costituito dal resoconto
ufficiale di un incontro segreto avvenuto il 23 luglio 2002 fra il primo
ministro inglese Tony Blair e il suo gabinetto, avente per oggetto l?Irak.
E? ! difficile sopravalutare l?importanza di questo documento, e delle
altre rivelazioni inglesi che ora stanno emergendo nell?opinione pubblica.
Essi potrebbero condurre ad un impeachment del presidente Bush...

Gas, napalm, torture, bombe al fosforo in un film i crimini di guerra
americani a Falluja
Sabina Morandi, Liberazione
... Perché nei video ci sono donne, uomini, bambini. Ci sono esseri umani
resi irriconoscibili da qualche oscuro rogo chimico, armi capaci di
staccare la pelle dal corpo in un istante, visto che questi anonimi resti
umani sono congelati nell'atto di alzarsi dal letto o di ripararsi il viso
con il braccio. Una mano stringe ancora una catenina. Qualcosa che
assomiglia a una donna tiene fra le bracci! a qualcosa che assomiglia a un
bambino. I filmati "amatoriali", riorganizzati con un faticoso quanto
presumibilmente straziante lavoro da Barbara Romagnoli, sono stati
realizzati il 18 novembre 2004 nella città ribelle di Falluja, a
conclusione dell'operazione Al-Fajr (letteralmente, l'alba) che, secondo la
Us Army, avrebbe dovuto distruggere definitivamente la resistenza

Iraqi Resistance Report for events of Saturday, 25 June 2005
Translated and/or compiled by Muhammad Abu Nasr, member, editorial board,
the Free Arab Voice. ( http://www.freearabvoice.org )
...In a dispatch posted at 5:29am GMT, Quds Press reported that the city of
al-Fallujah was in a state of high tension as US occupation troops were
beginning to impose ?extensive security measures? on the city following the
Resistance attack on Thursday that left six US troops dead and 13 others ?
nine of them women ? wounded! . The agency reported that the Americans were
preparing to mount a large-scale campaign of raids and searches in the

Bush Continues to Lie While Americans Continue to Die
Staff and Wire Reports
A defiant, apparently uncaring, President Bush continued his hardcore stand
on his Iraq war Friday even as six more U.S. troops died in an ambush by
insurgents. And he continued the administration lie that things are going
better in Iraq than they actually are. Bush rejected calls for a timetable
for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq and Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim
al-Jaafari called on Americans to stand firm as six more U.S. troops wer! e

A Thirty Years War?
George Hunsinger , I'n'I
...Recently the International Institute of Strategic Studies, a prominent
London-based think tank, concluded that the U.S. will be in Iraq until
2010, because of the difficulties in establishing law and order. University
of Michigan expert Juan Cole sees this estimate as optimistic. ?The
guerrilla war,? he writes, ?is likely to go on a decade to 15 years.? But
Paul Rogers, a diffident Oxford military expert, now echoes James Webb. His
?ostensibly rash? conclusion is th! at ?a thirty-year war is in prospect.?
On June 19 Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice acknowledged that America?s
involvement in Iraq is indeed ?a generational commitment?...

Dr. Steve Jonas, POAC
...According to an article by Peter Maas entitled "The Way of the
Commandos" that appeared in The New York Times Magazine on May 1, 2005, US
authorities in Iraq have organized an Iraqi "counter-insurgency" force that
looks and acts much like the "counter-insurgency" force that the Reaganites
organized in El Salvador in the 1980s.(...) The tactics? According to Maas
very similar to those used in El Salvador: summary execution, torture,
indefinite imprisonme! nt without specific charges and certainly without
trial, holding family members responsible, destroying homes, and so on and
so forth...

Where is Palestine? Ask Bush
Associated Press
It was either a slip of the tongue ? or President George W. Bush has
ambitions for the Palestinians beyond anyone?s expectations. ?My dream is
that there be a Palestinian state living side-by-side in peace with Iraq,?
Bush said yesterday with Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim Al-Jaafari. Bush made
the comment as he described his hopes for a peaceful, democratic West

BushCo wants you to believe...
alonzotjones, Daily Kos
Its your fault....
Iraq is Saddam's fault
Iraq bad intel is CIA's fault
Notion that Iaq was buying Uranium from Niger was Britain's fault.
Not listening to Richard Clarke regarding Terrorism's rise was Clarke's
fault for not being more insistent.
911 and the WTC was Osama's fault
Not scrambling military aircraft on 911 to shoot down the "high jacked"
planes was Osama's fault.
Not finding any wreckage or bodies, or even a black box at the Pentagon on
911 was - the fault of .... Somebody....

Dismissing the Evidence
Molly Ivins, Daily Camera (Boulder, CO)
I hope this is not too Inside Baseball, but I am genuinely astonished by
what the bloggers call "Mainstream Media." The New York Times, The
Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times have all gone way out of their
way to deny that the Downing Street Memos are news. Like many of you,
during the entire lead-up to the war with Iraq, I thought the whole thing
was a set-up...

Beyond Impeachment: The Bush Administration as War Criminals
Ken Sanders
In the wake of the Downing Street Memo and other leaked British documents
created before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, many have begun to question
the legality of the Bush administration's actions. In particular, families
of soldiers, a few Democratic senators, and hundreds of thousands of
outraged Americans, are calling for an independent investigation of the
Bush administration's manipulation and outright fabrication of intelligence
to ju! stify the invasion of Iraq. The word "impeachment" is even being
bandied about. While it is certainly appropriate to demand an independent
investigation of the Bush administration's pre-invasion shenanigans, as
well as to pursue bringing articles of impeachment against the President
for his official misconduct, there is something larger at stake. There is
the matter of the Bush administration's post-invasion atrocities...

Female death toll mounts in battlefield Iraq
Philip Sherwell
America was mourning its greatest loss of female troops in overseas action
since the Second World War yesterday after four servicewomen, three marines
and a sailor, were killed and 11 more women were injured in an ambush in
Fallujah. United States commanders believe that the female troops may have
been specifically targeted. The co-ordinated attack struck a lorry
returning them from duty in the western Iraqi city which was seized from
rebels last year.! Two male marines also died in the ambush on Thursday
evening, when a suicide car bomber struck a convoy and gunmen hiding nearby
opened fire on survivors...
