What is the expected outcome, when you have a haughty cowboy President, an arrogant administration and a seemingly stooge in the form of a Supreme Court?

Well, no prizes for guessing, you get some blindly dictatorial American laws for the globe. In fact, this time, President Bush and his ‘Administration’ have surpassed all the limits of deforming any civilised society by claiming that they can ‘kidnap’ any foreigner, if they are wanted for crimes in the United States of America. What more, they have the sanction of their Supreme Court as well. In fact, till now it was assumed that American law permits kidnapping only of terror suspects under ‘extraordinary redemption’, but recently it was made clear that the US can kidnap ‘anyone’ who is a criminal in the eyes of America. For that matter, even ‘extraordinary redemption’ is in itself unlawful. On top of this, kidnapping ‘anyone’ who is a criminal in the eyes of America, is a crime without doubt, at least in a civilised and working democracy!

The question is, who gives such despotic rights to the U.S.A. or to President Bush? It is a well known fact that there are extradition treaties between nations, which restore the sovereignty of every nation. But it seems that the Bush Administration blatantly refuses to recognise any such treaties and conventions! Blinded by his arrogance, Bush it seems, fails to recognise the law of nations, their constitution, and enforces some illogical laws to suit his own convenience. And even in some insane conditions, if we were to accept such laws, then why shouldn’t such rights of ‘kidnapping’ and ‘running trials’ on Bush himself be given to Dr Manmohan Singh or a Vladimir Putin or a Hugo Chavez or a Ahmedinejad; or, for that matter, to any other nation, for the arguable crimes that Bush himself has perpetrated on the world! Starting from his engagements in Afghanistan to Iraq and now his ‘itch’ to repeat the same in Iran, his list of crimes in the eyes of many is never ending. It is he who had been responsible for literally reducing Afghanistan to rubble, killing thousands of innocent civilians through aerial attacks. His crime didn’t stop there. His next engagement in Iraq, wherein as per Opinion Research Business, an independent British polling agency, a staggering 1.2 million people have been killed since the onset of the Iraq war, all in the name of restoring peace and democracy. Forget civilian casualties, according to UNICEF, more than 500,000 children in Iraq, under the age of five, have died since the imposition of American sanctions in 1991.

Such is the graft mechanism of the Bush Administration that they concocted an entire theory of Saddam Hussain and his ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’ to the entire world. And based on such blatant lies, he not only demolished Iraq, ‘kidnapped’ Saddam Hussein, but killed him too. Such crimes not only cost Afghanistan and Iraq, but nations like Kuwait and Saudi Arabia also had to suffer huge environmental losses on account of blowing up of oil fields (estimates go as high as 11 million barrels of crude oil that were spewed into the Persian Gulf). That apart, Bush did not even spare his own soldiers, who blindly believing in his lies, laid down their lives or ended up with permanent disabilities and mental disorders after fighting in Iraq, for no fault of theirs. By all parameters therefore it may be argued, Bush is a bigger criminal for not just the mayhem that he has caused in Afghanistan and Iraq, but more for the reasons that he quotes for such misadventures – that is, Osama and Saddam. Interestingly, both were his nation’s creations. As for his ‘actual’ reasons of the Iraq engagement, well...they are well known to the world! Had Iraq been an apple producing country instead of an oil producing one, no American President would have ever bothered about a country called Iraq!

In fact, President Bush’s current dreams just got shattered when intelligence agencies claimed that since 2003, Iran had frozen its nuclear programme – a campaign, which Bush Administration has been vociferously propagating, in order to engage in a war with Iran. But then I’m sure, going by precedence, nothing would deter Bush from bombing Iran, for if there are no nuclear weapons this time, he and his Administration would surely find some other reasons. And would then relentlessly massacre a few million lives more, ‘kidnap’ Ahmedinejad if necessary, run some fake trials, hang him and communicate to the world that all this was done to restore ‘peace’ and ‘democracy’ for the otherwise oppressed Iranians!

As such, his list of crimes against humanity, are unending and on top of this, the recent US law would mean a virtual American coup on the entire world. As then it would give Bush all the rights to kidnap anyone and kill them, with or without reasons. Such dictatorial laws aptly vindicate that President Bush is turning the world into an American empire, wherein every act of his, stinks of disguised fascism. Before anything like this happens, the world should come together and immediately act against this so that he and his cohorts in the White House, who are arguably guilty of domestic crimes, international crimes and crimes against humanity, are stopped immediately.

Pictures of Saddam's torture chambers in Iraq (including non-existent Russian tanks):

Pictures of an Iraq "destroyed" by the Americans (in fact rebuilt by the Americans after decades of war):

My own experiences in Iraq after the invasion:

Note that I couldn't find any evidence for the 600 bodies a day the "independent British polling agency" estimated.

I did, however, run into people who tried to explain to me Saddam's crimes and murders and met a population happy that someone cared and overall less hostile to the "criminal" Bush than the average American liberal.

Iraqis showed me galleries of pictures of victims (including children) of Saddam's non-existent chemical weapons and told me stories of fleeing to the mountains when Saddam attacked. They told me of celebrations in 2003 and showed me pictures of Saddam's statues being torn down.

And they told me that while the majority of Iraqis want the Americans out only the secular Sunnis of the Saladin province (where Saddam's hometown Tikrit) is located were really against the invasion and the occupation. (The Sunnis further west were against the invasion but prefer American troops over Shiite dominance and Al-Qaeda now.)

I heard stories about Saddam being America's creation but noone in Iraq told me anything about ties to America. They did show me tanks and weapons provided to Saddam by Russia and told me the history of revolts against Saddam.

For those interested in actual history (that is hostory unaffected by liberal rewriting), it should perhaps be noted that Iraq was a member of the American-sponsored "Baghdad Pact" before the Baath (Saddam's party) came to power. Under Saddam Iraq switched sides from NATO to the Soviet Union. I'm afraid Saddam's rise to power and his rule had nothing to do with America.

Osama Bin Laden was a Saudi dissident who came to Afghanistan after the Americans had left it. During the 1980s the US supported the "Mujahedeen", who first fought the communists in the 80s and then the Taliban in the 90s. The Taliban were supported by Pakistan, not the US.

 

I haven't been in Afghanistan (and I have no interest in going there, I have no connection to the place), but I do believe that one should invest at least some little effort into research before announcing that someone is a war criminal and should be "kidnapped" so that he can stand trial in some country where they execute homosexuals and dissidents.

Ever wonder why people who write articles like thse always seem to take their time coming back to comment or not comment at all? I guess if you insult someones mama and cover your ears, technically they never got a chance to insult your mama back giving you the win.

Yes, but I don't really care. I just use such articles as vehicles for my own explanations which seem much more rational when they stand as counterpoints to such drivel.

I hope that people will go away from here having learned a thing or two about Iraq.

The original author didn't intend that, but it might just work.

In the not-too-distant future, I predict, there will be statues to George W. Bush in virtually every city in Iraq, just as there are, today, statues to Ronald Reagan (and Margaret Thatcher) in virtually every city in Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Bloc.

And in that future, American and Western liberals will still be dismissing him as an irrelevant, semi-retarded chimp who slacked his way into the White House, and of everything else they accuse him of today, just as they laughed at and dismissed Reagan in the 1980s.

No. They don't like him very much. They supported the invasion but find George Bush a bit dumb and his strategy inept. (They do not, however, hate him like western liberals do for some reason.)

But you can find American flags and graffities praising America in the Sunni Arab region of Iraq (outside Saladin province, where Saddam's clan live).

Albania and Kosovo have lots of streets named after George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

But before the November elections Kurdish newspapers had lots of articles about how Obama cares only about America and how the Iraqi people fear that if he became President, he might indeed withdraw troops immediately. They did like John McCain, whom they seemed to see as someone who supported George W. Bush's invasion but would have had the military knowledge to do everything right.

Well, maybe you're right. He's still the one who took the steps to get rid of Saddam, while others stood by and allowed him to continue.

That's interesting; so, the Clinton streets are, like, Cigar Street, Zipper Alley, Intern Blvd., that sort of thing?

Not too quick on the uptake, are they?

Hmm...maybe they are, at that. Thanks for your insights.

Yes, and Iraqis acknowledge that. As I said, he is more popular in Iraq than in most of Europe.

I am serious. Bill Clinton is really popular in Albania and Kosovo (and Iraq).

What do you mean? I think they totally nailed it.

I simply went there and asked them.
