Iraq

Don't Be Fooled By Dreamers

COMBINE RELIGION, RACE, the Cold War, America's enemies, and a history of colonialism, and you've got a breeding ground for the most virulent strains of politically correct mythology, distortions, and cover-ups. If you've spent more time in front of the TV watching reruns, and still haven't got a clue about what's going on in the mother of all global hotspots, then you need to take a stroll through The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Middle East by Martin Sieff. In his book you'll learn: Why the Arab-Israeli conflict today isn't about borders—and never was How the Arab states openly declared...

Chalibi's Taqiyya Flummoxes State Department

MERICAN military and civilian officials have cut off ALL contact with controversial Iraqi politician and ripe liar, Ahmad Chalabi—the former favorite of Washington's once powerful cabal of neoconservatives. The reason, sources say, is "unauthorized" contacts with Iran's government, an allegation Chalabi denies. Iran has been accused of arming and training rebel Shiite forces in Iraq. Chalabi had been making a remarkable comeback in Iraq, but that may now be in question, American officials tell NBC News on condition of anonymity. Chalabi had gained notoriety after his group provided false information to journalists and intelligence organizations about Saddam Hussein before the...


Extermination of Iraqi Artists

One wonders if the website I found this morning in a search for Iraqi work has incriminated these artists who have posted there.

A Speech Like None Other

ere's a very funny piece by Wesley Prudon published by the Washington Times. DAVY CROCKETT IS THE PATRON SAINT of every politician who ever left Washington with a bruised ego and a broken heart. When he was bounced out of Congress in 1830, Davy told the folks on the banks of the Nolichucky River in Tennessee: "I'm going to Texas, and the rest of you can go to hell." Departing presidents have left town nursing similar sentiments but avoided saying them out loud. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, continuing their endless rassling match today in Indiana and North Carolina, could...


Saddam's Weapons Moved To Syria

AVEN'T WE ALWAYS believed this to be true? An upcoming joint US-Israel report on the September 6 IAF strike on a Syrian facility will claim that former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein transferred weapons of mass destruction to the country, according to the Jerusalem Post. Now in addition to the interest this report will have for those who are still arguing over whether or not we should have gone into Iraq at all, if it is true this report means that these WMD's are most likely still in Syria, since the recent strike obviously didn't clear away As others have pointed...
