Is Bush Next?

By Paul Craig Roberts

11/06/06 “Information Clearing House” — — The show trial of Saddam Hussein was drawn out until two days before the midterm US elections. The death sentence imposed on the former Iraqi president may help the deluded band of Bush supporters find victory in the defeat that Bush has met in Iraq and motivate them to support the beleaguered Republicans on November 7.

But Saddam’s sentence will do nothing for reconciliation and peace among Iraq’s Kurds, Sunnis, and Shiites. In Iraq the sentence is seen by all parties as revenge for the years of Sunni rule. Saddam’s sentence is perfectly timed to drive the rising sectarian conflict, which is already causing 100 or more Iraqi deaths per day, over the brink into full scale civil war. Indeed, one could conclude that the real purpose of the sentence is to achieve the neoconservative goal of a dismembered and impotent Iraq.

Saddam was sentenced to death because 148 Shiites were killed in 1982 in the Iraqi government’s response to an attempted assassination of Saddam. We have no way of knowing how many, if any, of the 148 were involved in the assassination attempt, or whether the botched attempt was a “black ops” event to enable the police to settle local scores or to take out potential trouble-makers. The killings, however, do not fit the propaganda picture of Saddam gratuitously killing people for the fun of it.

Now that the Bush administration has adopted the torture and detention practices of Saddam’s regime, one wonders what would be the fate of Americans accused of an assassination plot against a US president?

Saddam’s trial itself is suspect. The most qualified lawyer in the courtroom, former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, was ejected from the trial for handing Judge Abdul-Rahman a memo in which he said the trial was a “travesty” of law. I am confident that Ramsey Clark has more integrity than Abdul-Rahman.

But, to get to the main point, let us assume that Saddam is guilty as charged and that his death so serves the cause of justice that it is worth heightened sectarian conflict and even full-fledged civil war. What did Saddam do that Bush, and Cheney, and Rumsfeld, and Blair have not done?

If Saddam can be sentenced to death for his responsibility in the killing of 148 Shiites, what about Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Blair’s responsibility for the tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians slaughtered by Bush’s invasion of Iraq? This massive carnage is the direct consequence of an illegal invasion–a war crime in itself for which Nazi leaders were sentenced to death–that was based on lies and deception. Bush himself admits that 30,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed. Iraq Body Count puts the civilian deaths at between 45,000 and 50,000. The recent Johns Hopkins University study published in the peer-reviewed British medical journal, The Lancet (11 Oct, 2006), puts the Iraqi civilian deaths caused by Bush’s invasion as high as 655,000.

What does the world think of American hypocrisy when the US government, drowning in the blood of tens of thousands of its innocent victims, cries “justice” as the president of Iraq is sentenced to death for killing 148 people for trying to assassinate him?

The verdict against Saddam was influenced by the propaganda of mass graves uncovered by the US-led invasion and seized upon as justification for that illegal invasion. However, as various experts have pointed out, the graves are those of war dead from the Iraq-Iran war. The US government has responsibility for these deaths also, as Washington gave aid to both sides in the bloody conflict that is believed to have claimed as many as one million lives.

Now that Saddam Hussein has been held accountable for his crimes, can we look forward to accountability for George W. Bush, Tony Blair, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, Lewis “Scooter” Libby, John Bolton, Kenneth Adelman, Michael Rubin, Eliot Cohen, and their propagandists in the media, such as Billy Kristol, Victor Davis Hanson, Robert Kagan, David Frum, the Wall St Journal editorial writers, the editors of National Review and the New York Times, and the Fox “News” talking heads?

Will accountability be extended to the conservative foundations and think tanks that financed the neoconservative takeover of the Republican Party and Bush administration?

Now that the American invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan have ended in defeat, those most responsible for the destruction of those two countries, tens of thousands of deaths, and a bill for US taxpayers in excess of $2 trillion (according to Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz) are running from any responsibility.

Richard Perle, the principle instigator of the illegal invasions, declared to Vanity Fair (Nov. 3, 2006): “Huge mistakes were made, and I want to be very clear on this: They were not made by neoconservatives, who had almost no voice in what happened.” “At the end of the day,” Perle told ABC News’ Karen Mooney (Nov. 4, 2006), “you have to hold the president responsible.”

Kenneth Adelman, who promised us a “cakewalk war,” now puts all the blame on Rumsfeld: “He certainly fooled me” (Vanity Fair, Nov. 3).

The neoconservatives, of course, are trying to escape blame for the defeat of their strategy by accusing Bush and Rumsfeld of incompetent implementation. Will the neoconservatives escape responsibility for launching the wars that have turned the United States into a war criminal abroad and a police state at home?

Saddam sentence: Justice or travesty?

Saddam sentence: Justice or travesty?

Saddam sentenced to death by hanging

So, Saddam Hussein is to be hanged for signing the death warrants of 148 rebels, would-be murderers, in Dujail in 1982. Yet George Bush signed the death warrants of 152 people as Governor of Texas. Is he to be hanged for that?

If Saddam Hussein is to be hanged for his actions, then so should George Bush. Whatever happens, Saddam Hussein, dead or alive, has the last laugh. He knows that he ultimately defeated George Bush, that he was the cause of George Bush’s downfall, that he caused George Bush to turn against his Christian values and support capital punishment, the antithesis of Christianity, he knows that Saddam Hussein will write the annals of history about George Bush. For George Bush will be remembered for Iraq and like it or not, Saddam Hussein and Iraq are intrinsically linked.

How any Christian, or follower of any main religion, can rejoice at a death sentence being passed, defies logic. The decision to murder Saddam Hussein by hanging is the latest in a string of actions which have flouted international law in recent years.

So, Saddam Hussein is to be hanged for signing the death warrants of 148 rebels, would-be murderers, in Dujail in 1982. Yet George Bush signed the death warrants of 152 people as Governor of Texas. Is he to be hanged for that?

Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait because this country was cross-drilling, stealing Iraq’s oil. The United States of America invaded Iraq without any pretext whatsoever except barefaced, blatant lies, slaughtering civilians, destroying infrastructures with military hardware, breaking the UN Charter, breaking the Geneva Conventions, committing acts of mass and wanton murder. Is George Bush to be hanged for that?

Torture was committed in Iraqi prisons under Saddam Hussein’s regime. Torture was committed in Iraq under the US-puppet regime and perpetrated by US personnel, of which Bush is commander-in-chief. Is Bush to be hanged for that?

If there was no legality for removing Saddam Hussein from power under international law, where is the legality of this so-called court which sentences him to death? And under what jurisdiction does this court operate?

Any Christian will know that it is God’s right to give or take life, not Man’s and the fundamental law of Christianity is to protect the gift of life. Therefore how the White House can react with the adjective ‘good’ in reaction to the news, just about sums up the Satanic nature of those who purport to being Bush-supporting Christians in the United States of America today. In short, they are closer to Satan.

The entire Iraq war was a travesty of justice, based on lies, greed and arrogance. If Saddam Hussein’s appeal does not result, History will be his judge. Curiously enough, instead of being judged for his own crimes, History will judge him in comparison with those of Bush, which are far worse.

If Saddam Hussein is to be hanged for his actions, then so should George Bush. Whatever happens, Saddam Hussein, dead or alive, has the last laugh. He knows that he ultimately defeated George Bush, that he was the cause of George Bush’s downfall, that he caused George Bush to turn against his Christian values and support capital punishment, the antithesis of Christianity, he knows that Saddam Hussein will write the annals of history about George Bush. For George Bush will be remembered for Iraq and like it or not, Saddam Hussein and Iraq are intrinsically linked.

Moroccan airline bans prayer time

Moroccan airline bans prayer time

By Richard Hamilton
BBC News, Rabat

Royal Air Maroc plane
The airline is a source of prestige for Morocco

Morocco’s state airline Royal Air Maroc has banned its staff praying at their offices and headquarters.

The company says that in the past its workers have abused the privilege of praying, by taking too much time away from their desks and their customers.

But the airline’s workers as well as Islamist politicians say it is part of a crackdown on their religious freedom.

Praying is one of the five pillars of Islam and regarded as a crucial part of a Muslim’s way of life.

The state airline, partly owned by the Moroccan royal family, is a great source of pride and prestige in the country.

But this latest move threatens to exacerbate divisions in Morocco.

Workers say that they have been banned from praying at work and that a number of prayer rooms have been closed and that they are forbidden from going to the mosque during work hours.

The company would not give an interview but issued a statement saying that while there is no official ban on praying, they had to do something to stop people taking lengthy breaks away from work.

But critics say the issue of praying, like the veil, is part of a more sinister move to rob the country of its Islamic roots.

Political

“I feel very angry about this decision,” says Moustapha Aramid from the Islamic Party for Justice and Development.

“Moroccans have had their liberty and their religious freedom taken away from them. It is very damaging. Royal Air Morocco obviously has absolutely no respect for Islam.”

Analysts say the ban on prayers is really a political move aimed at stamping out radical Islamism.

When an alleged terrorist cell – Ansar el-Mehdi – was broken up earlier this year – two of the suspects charged were the wives of two Royal Air Morocco pilots.

There is a feeling that the company had to do something to respond.

Other complaints from airline staff are that pilots and stewards were not allowed to fast during the month of Ramadan and that female staff are not allowed to wear the veil – although that has been an unwritten rule at many companies for several years.

These issues are becoming a focal point for some very hard questions being asked of this moderate Arabic country – something that is causing serious friction between liberals and traditionalists.

The Mother of All Lies

Of all the lies that have been told by George W. Bush, including the multitude of lies that led to the aggressive invasion of Iraq that has become a full blown, out of control, civil war; nothing can compare with the one he told when he said recently, “We are winning the war in Iraq.” To say this in the face of the huge number of casualties suffered by the US Military this month is beyond incredible.

THE LIE OF THE CENTURY

The Downing Street Memo is only the beginning of the proof we were all lied to.

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

This was a guilty verdict on America as well

So America’s one-time ally has been sentenced to death for war crimes he committed when he was Washington’s best friend in the Arab world. America knew all about his atrocities and even supplied the gas – along with the British, of course – yet there we were yesterday declaring it to be, in the White House’s words, another “great day for Iraq”.

Questioning the Logic of Occupation in Iraq

The debate over what to do about the crisis in Iraq has, on one hand, those who argue for immediate withdrawal and, on the other, those who argue, justification (or lack thereof) of the initial invasion aside, that the US must remain lest the country descend further into chaos. Among the latter, the focus is on finding a “timetable for withdrawal”, which would be dictated by how quickly “Iraqization” could be successfully implemented to a degree that Iraqi forces could take over the job currently being done by US troops. That this needs to occur seems to be the general consensus. This view is predicated upon a number of assumptions that are in need of serious questioning if any real solutions to the ongoing crisis are to be found.
