America’s new puppet

By its ill-judged invasion of Somalia, Ethiopia has become an accomplice in Bush’s war on terror

Cameron Duodu

Friday January 5, 2007

The Guardian

If the 20th century taught us anything, it was that powerful armies can be brought to their knees by small groups of fighters who are not afraid to die. Small Vietnam humiliated mighty America, and the “stone-age” mujahideen of Afghanistan sent the Soviet army packing. With all this so apparent, why has the Ethiopian prime minister, Meles Zenawi, sent his army into Somalia?

The transitional government had been fighting a civil war against the Union of Islamic Courts (UIC). Meles may think the former has the people’s backing, but that poses the question: if it’s so popular, why does it need the Ethiopian army to fight for it?

Ethiopia fought a war against the Somali government in the late 1970s and early 80s, but there has been peace on the border for over a decade. So Ethiopia cannot point to internal safety concerns in allowing itself to be drawn into invading its neighbour.

The crisis has now escalated sharply with the deployment of US naval forces to prevent UIC fighters from fleeing, the US claiming that some have ties to terrorist organisations, including al-Qaida.

The Ethiopian invasion will certainly be resisted by Somali patriots. It will initially be classified as “successful” because it will establish a semblance of law and order. But the routed UIC, although weakened by internal squabbles, will seek safe havens nearby, regroup and woo back its supporters.

The UIC knows that when faced with a conventional army backed by an airforce, the best option is to disappear into the undergrowth or behind the desert dunes. The Somalis have been “disappearing” like that for centuries, always coming back to harass those who claim to have defeated them.

The danger this time is that the resistance will draw in other countries. Eritrea, which fought its own costly war with Ethiopia, does not need an invitation to help its enemy’s enemy. The UIC is also said to be receiving financial assistance from rich leaders of sympathetic Islamic sects, drawn from such countries as Saudi Arabia, Yemen and the Gulf sheikhdoms. And the most explosive fuel will be the involvement of the US on the side of Ethiopia. General John Abizaid, commander for the US central command, is reported to have visited Ethiopia last month, after which Ethiopia moved from providing the Somali government with “military advice” to open armed intervention.

The US objective is to safeguard access to the Red Sea for its oil tankers, and to prevent al-Qaida cells being nurtured in Somalia or in Ethiopia, which has a sizeable Muslim minority. Now, by allowing the US to persuade it to invade, Ethiopia has signalled to the Islamic world that it is willing to join the US in its “war on terror”.

Can Ethiopia afford to be universally regarded as a US puppet? In the African Union (AU) – which has its headquarters in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa – US policy is already causing enormous confusion. For months the AU has been trying, unsuccessfully, to persuade the UN security council to bolster the AU force in Darfur, Sudan. Yet within days of Ethiopia’s invasion, the security council, under US instigation, was able to pass a resolution asking for an AU force to be sent to Somalia. Clearly, the US wants to legitimise the invasion by placing it under the umbrella of the very AU that it has humiliated for months.

As one of the poorest countries on earth, Ethiopia needs to have the solidarity of the “wretched of the earth”. In allowing itself to be associated with George Bush’s foreign policy, it is placing itself on the wrong side of the struggle between the weak and the strong.

The Mossad in the CIA

January 3, 2007

by Nicole Bagley

It might be of public interest to know that a significant number of Israeli Mossad agents are now working in the United States as employees of the Central Intelligence Agency. These agents, some of whom are listed below, are initially paid by the Israeli Embassy in Washington but Israel then bills the U.S. Government for the salaries and is reimbursed in full on a monthly basis.

Here is a partial listing of identified Mossad agents (as of 1 January, 2007) along with their dates of birth and salaries. They do not have American Social Security numbers and do not pay American taxes.

  • Gadi Regev 12/17/1975 $63,000 per annum
  • Betzalel Yanay 9/4/1978 $75,000 “
  • Eyal Artzel 5/27/1977 $ 87,000 “
  • Sharon Rotem 8/12/1977 $ 75,000 “
  • David Susi 1/9/1975 $90,000 “
  • Dana Sasson 8/10/1980 $70,000 “
  • Morin Biton 7/14/1980 $ 63,000 “
  • Gilad Lifschitz 9/17/1978 $87,000 “
  • Maya Maimon 12/26/1978 $65,000 “
  • Marco Fernandez 4/13/1977 $54,000 “
  • Keren Touyz 8/20/1978 $75,000 “
  • Nofar Bahidi 21/2/79 $53,000 “
  • Michal Gal 8/10/1979 $92,000 “
  • Ophir Baer 11/11/1956 $102,000 “
  • Dilka Borenstein 3/15/1979 $ 67,000 “
  • Michael Calmanovic 9/6/75 $102,000 “

Most of these U.S.-subsidized spies live in Potomac, McLean, Georgetown and Arlington. I have their addresses and these will be published in a follow-up article.

These are Israeli citizens but many of the middle level CIA officials are American-born Jews and not included in this list but we do know who they are. All of them, without exception, work for Israel and Israeli interests, not American interests and more than a few are known to be friendly with a number of the so-called Neocons, a significant number of whom are also Israeli citizens.

Future of Iraq: The spoils of war

 

How the West will make a killing on Iraqi oil riches

By Danny Fortson, Andrew Murray-Watson and Tim Webb

Published: 07 January 2007

Iraq’s massive oil reserves, the third-largest in the world, are about to be thrown open for large-scale exploitation by Western oil companies under a controversial law which is expected to come before the Iraqi parliament within days.

The US government has been involved in drawing up the law, a draft of which has been seen by The Independent on Sunday. It would give big oil companies such as BP, Shell and Exxon 30-year contracts to extract Iraqi crude and allow the first large-scale operation of foreign oil interests in the country since the industry was nationalised in 1972.

The huge potential prizes for Western firms will give ammunition to critics who say the Iraq war was fought for oil. They point to statements such as one from Vice-President Dick Cheney, who said in 1999, while he was still chief executive of the oil services company Halliburton, that the world would need an additional 50 million barrels of oil a day by 2010. “So where is the oil going to come from?… The Middle East, with two-thirds of the world’s oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies,” he said.

Oil industry executives and analysts say the law, which would permit Western companies to pocket up to three-quarters of profits in the early years, is the only way to get Iraq’s oil industry back on its feet after years of sanctions, war and loss of expertise. But it will operate through “production-sharing agreements” (or PSAs) which are highly unusual in the Middle East, where the oil industry in Saudi Arabia and Iran, the world’s two largest producers, is state controlled.

Opponents say Iraq, where oil accounts for 95 per cent of the economy, is being forced to surrender an unacceptable degree of sovereignty.

Proposing the parliamentary motion for war in 2003, Tony Blair denied the “false claim” that “we want to seize” Iraq’s oil revenues. He said the money should be put into a trust fund, run by the UN, for the Iraqis, but the idea came to nothing. The same year Colin Powell, then Secretary of State, said: “It cost a great deal of money to prosecute this war. But the oil of the Iraqi people belongs to the Iraqi people; it is their wealth, it will be used for their benefit. So we did not do it for oil.”

Supporters say the provision allowing oil companies to take up to 75 per cent of the profits will last until they have recouped initial drilling costs. After that, they would collect about 20 per cent of all profits, according to industry sources in Iraq. But that is twice the industry average for such deals.

Greg Muttitt, a researcher for Platform, a human rights and environmental group which monitors the oil industry, said Iraq was being asked to pay an enormous price over the next 30 years for its present instability. “They would lose out massively,” he said, “because they don’t have the capacity at the moment to strike a good deal.”

Iraq’s Deputy Prime Minister, Barham Salih, who chairs the country’s oil committee, is expected to unveil the legislation as early as today. “It is a redrawing of the whole Iraqi oil industry [to] a modern standard,” said Khaled Salih, spokesman for the Kurdish Regional Government, a party to the negotiations. The Iraqi government hopes to have the law on the books by March.

Several major oil companies are said to have sent teams into the country in recent months to lobby for deals ahead of the law, though the big names are considered unlikely to invest until the violence in Iraq abates.

James Paul, executive director at the Global Policy Forum, the international government watchdog, said: “It is not an exaggeration to say that the overwhelming majority of the population would be opposed to this. To do it anyway, with minimal discussion within the [Iraqi] parliament is really just pouring more oil on the fire.”

Vince Cable, the Liberal Democrat Treasury spokesman and a former chief economist at Shell, said it was crucial that any deal would guarantee funds for rebuilding Iraq. “It is absolutely vital that the revenue from the oil industry goes into Iraqi development and is seen to do so,” he said. “Although it does make sense to collaborate with foreign investors, it is very important the terms are seen to be fair.”

Lyncher-in-Chief Is Upset About Worldwide Revulsion At The Barbarity of His Shiite Thugs: The sock puppet threatened to cut diplomatic relations with any country criticizing the lynching…

[]

Iraq PM hits out at hanging critics

Aljazeera.net – January 6, 2006

Nuri al-Maliki, the Iraqi prime minister, has said his country may “review” relations with countries which have criticised the manner of the execution of Saddam Hussein, saying the hanging was an internal matter.

Al-Maliki said: “We consider the execution of the dictator an internal affair that concerns only the Iraqi people.”

Saturday’s comments were the prime minister’s first reaction to the ousted president’s hanging in Baghdad on December 30.

He said: “The Iraqi government could be obliged to review its relations with any state that fails to respect the wish of the Iraqi people.”

Al-Maliki, speaking at a ceremony on the 86th anniversary of the Iraqi army, reacted angrily to those who criticised the execution.

He said: “We find that this conduct is inciting sedition and flagrant interference in the internal affairs of Iraq and abuses feelings of the families of the victims.”

Mubarak criticism

A number of international leaders have criticised the manner of Saddam’s hanging saying it appeared as a sectarian lynching rather than a court-directed punishment.

The criticism came after a guard, believed to be a Shia, taunted the Sunni former president in his final moments.

The strongest comments came from Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, who said that the execution had turned Saddam into a “martyr.”

New security plan

In a separate development, al-Maliki said that Iraqi forces would launch a new effort, with US help, to wrest control of Baghdad’s neighbourhoods from armed groups.

Al-Maliki said: “The Baghdad security plan is now ready and we will depend on our armed forces to implement it with multinational forces behind them. Field leaders will ask for help from these forces if needed.”

Iraqi forces will begin a neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood assault on fighters in the capital this weekend, as a first step in the new White House strategy to contain violence in the capital.

The first details of the plan emerged on Friday, a day after George Bush, the US president, and al-Maliki spoke for nearly two hours by video conference.

Bush is expected to outline more of the strategy in the coming days.

Violence

On Saturday, Iraqi police clashed with armed men in the area near Haifa Street, a traditional Sunni area in central Baghdad, when they went to investigate a report that 27 bodies had been found.

A source at Baghdad police headquarters said local police called in reinforcements, but when they arrived, they came under fire.

Meanwhile, police said two car bombs killed four civilians in separate attacks in the Iraqi capital on Saturday.

A parked car exploded near a fuel station in the southern neighbourhood of Dora at midday, killing three people and wounding four others.

Another car bomb targeted the convoy of a high-ranking Iraqi police officer in the central Baghdad neighbourhood of Karradah, killing a pedestrian and wounding six.

Ali al-Yassiri, head of emergency police in the Iraqi capital, survived the attack on his convoy, while three of his bodyguards were hurt.

Ethnic Cleansing in Battle for Baghdad – Sistani Aide Claims threat to Islamic Line

Al-Sharq al-Awsat reports in Arabic that Abdul Mahdi al-Karbala’i, an aide to Sistani in the holy city of Karbala in the south, said Friday that a failure of the al-Maliki governmen might well discredit the whole “Islamic line.” He urged the government to act before it was too late. It would be ironic if the collapse of Iraq really did discredit political Islam. But I fear it is more likely to discredit democracy and the United States. It is hard to discredit utopian ideologies. Studies have shown that members of sects whose leaders predict the end of the world on a certain date are actually more committed to the leader when the date comes and goes with nothing happening. Apparently they had so much time, money, and social networks invested in him that they didn’t want to lose it all.

So the American troops who are fighting and dying in Iraq are not fighting and dying because Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, or because Saddam Hussein was in any way a threat to the US: they are dying for oil.

Kofi Annan blasts Bush as “incorrigible bastard” in UN farewell speech

Outgoing UN Secretary General Kofi Annan referred to former UN Ambassador John Bolton as “arrogant” and “contemptuous,” and to US President Bush as an “incorrigible bastard,” in his farewell speech today from Havenport, Michigan. Through a translator, Annan praised the US and its long history of defense of principles of human rights, but criticized the current President for his conduct in international relations, and his designated UN Abassador for truculence on important diplomatic matters. “Sometimes, a friendly face or demeanor hides a more recalcitrant person. In their case, even their faces are unseemly. Their underlying character is, therefore, quite uncouth and uncivil.”

LIVE FROM PALESTINE~~ANOTHER HORROR STORY

…I never thought I would be so happy to come back home. I am still disoriented and traumatized, and though I had taken pain killers, and coffee after coffee, I just can’t bring myself to sleep. Early this morning while walking in Ramallah, I took a road that brought awful memories into my head. Last year, I witnessed one of the Israeli forces’ raids in Ramallah. Though it was from a distance, it was a chilling experience to be totally surrounded by bullets and blood. I have just come back from Ramallah where together with my sister I was locked inside a building at Al Manara, Ramallah’s city center, for four hours. While we were shopping this afternoon, people started running, stores began closing up, and the Palestinian policemen fled from Al Manara. Everyone was pointing somewhere upwards and there were two Israeli helicopters flying in Ramallah’s skies…

EXCLUSIVE: After being held without charge for five years, terrorism suspect Mahmoud Jaballah speaks out from the special, high-security facility built just for him and two others near Kingston

BATH, Ont.­In neat handwriting that fills three pages are Mahmoud Jaballah’s complaints about daily life inside this $3.2 million portable surrounded by barbed wire that was built for him and two other Toronto terrorism suspects.

Jaballah and two other detainees held here stand accused by Canada’s spy service of belonging to organizations with connections to Al Qaeda ­ claims they deny. They have been held for more than five years. None have been charged criminally but remain detained here in legal limbo.

Crimes Against Humanity From Ford to Saddam

If we do not limit our analysis of Ford to his role as a U.S. “statesman,” and instead examine his behavior through an internationalist lens similar to that employed to judge Saddam Hussein and concerned with crimes against humanity, we find that Ford, too, was responsible for mass murder-in East Timor.

DICTATORSHIP : The Privacy Office

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has a special office that monitors the “privacy implications” of DHS plans, and issues “Privacy Impact Assessments” to the public. A more honest name would be “The Office of Public Pacification,” as its assessments do nothing but repeatedly assure the reader that their “privacy” is secure. The DHS is building consolidated databases of personal information that its controllers in the White House will use as they please.
