Not that daily violence, killing, atrocities, torture and mayhem in Iraq is restricted to the Green Zone.
But, the Killing Grounds of Iraq gets attention and headlines here only when someone prominent, like Biden, happens to be in the middle of it all.
Out of sight, out of mind.
Simultaneously, Bush/Maliki Iraq shoe thrower Al-Zaidi is released and holds a Press Conference.
These events are not unrelated:
Iraq's so-called NAZI puppet government just announced NO oil law will be designated until after their so-called January, 2010 elections while the KRG continues entrenched in its adamant position:
And I read various responses to the report, INCLUDING MINE, about potential MAJOR US Pentagon Turkish military sales, which mostly TRY to assuage its impact and say it is just PR.
I beg to differ.
The PR show is Ahmadimoron talks. Stalling, buying time.
There are now MORE than two major regional military forces aligned against NAZI Iran/Ahmadimoron, namely, Turkey, Israel and the US, of course, along with other NATO forces.
The contradictions in Iraq are intractable, insoluable ones and EVERYBODY has helped dig it and themselves in deeper and deeper and THEY CONTINUE to do so by DENYING the realities on the ground in Iraq, not to mention elsewhere as well.
But, this time, I thought I would name another strategic regional group, who, like their partners in crime, Saudi royalty, play a major, key, HYPOCRITICAL role in this drama, namely, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and his/their inner circle.
But, first, an article from a slightly unusual, different source which reaffirms dramatically the CALAMATOUS nature of the NAZI Islamic policies superimposed on Iraq from Iran and the US, although, of course, placing the perfunctory spin about Hussein on it, namely, Iraq's endangered species, Catholics:
And, now, AFTER THE FACT and THEIR VITRIOLIC role in helping to escalate and promote it all, for personal profit, gain, privatization and aggrandizement, of course, here are just a few highlights from Abu Dhabi's apparent need to polish up themselves and Islam's nasty, tarnished image emanating from the putrid stench rising from the repercussions of NAZI Iran created Shia Islam Fundamentalism in Iraq.
So, in true cynical, ironic and hypocritical fashion:
"Mohammed bin Zayed attends a lecture on 'Reviving the legacy of the Rationalist School of Islam':
Ain't that sweet, thoughtful and erudite of him?
"Saif Bin Zayed receives the Minister President of the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia":
And, lastly, "Sheikh Zayed Mosque Among World's Most Prominent Islamic Architectural Structures."
On this last one, link following, since I have not seen the Mosque, I can't help but wonder about some similarity to the infamous, recently deceased, NAZI Turkmenistan Dictator Niyazov's EXTRAORDINARY mosque building spree and glorification of himself and his NAZI regime, in which all major international firms earned oodles and oodles and bundles of money:
Of course, these folks above are hardly alone in hypocritically, cynically, sanitizing NAZI barbarity for purpose of counter-revolutionary, reactionary privatization goals, personal aggrandizement, gain, greed and profit.
We have an entire domestic and international coterie of covert and overt hired official and unofficial collaborators and ideologues who function similarly.
Actually, this represents a growth industry in a growing unemployed and underemployed economy.
