Pravda.Ru presents the bare facts about what George W. Bush and his evil regime has done in Iraq, making the US troops and civilian workers hated among the people who were supposed to welcome them with open arms. We expose the lies and present the truth, based on media reports and eye witness accounts.
The attack against Iraq was planned long before 9/11 - the Bush family had some unfinished business with Saddam Hussein, the man Washington had placed in Baghdad as the equilibrium point between various forces of chaos. The decision not to use the UN Security Council was a sign that there was no causus belli and the order to remove the UNMOVIC and IAEA inspection teams a show of arrogance, based on the fear that nothing would be found. It wasn't.
Colin Powell then lied through his teeth at the UN building in New York, presenting what he claimed as magnificent intelligence work, complete with reports, satellite photographs and mock-ups with arrows and labels, such as "mobile laboratory", which he later claimed were being "driven around the desert in vehicles". A year on, he now claims that the intelligence was faulty. A more decent man would admit that he told a tissue of lies.
There are not, and never were, Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. Bush and his regime quite simply lied to their people, lied to the citizens of the world, lied at the UNO and lied to the international community of states.
The heroic liberators of Iraq were supposed to be welcomed by a grateful population. Great care was taken to photograph what were supposed to be cheering throngs. What we saw were a few dozen bemused and shocked citizens watching on as US troops committed acts of vandalism and wanton destruction, to add to the purposeful targeting of civilian infrastructures which have not recovered today.
Western TV reporters are beginning to say they cannot leave their hotels and US reporters are wearing the Canadian maple leaf - or hide behind hijabs.
Why this hatred? Because the United States of America decided to utterly and totally destroy Iraq to pave the way for reconstruction contracts to be doled out to the clique of the corporate elite which dictate the White House's policy (not the voters), some of these without tender.
Paul Bremer is selling Iraq and its people to foreign institutions controlled by Washington. Last October, a law was passed linking the economy to foreign control (Order 39, which cannot be changed by the new government) and instituted special powers for special institutions, controlled by Washington, which will supervise the new Iraqi ministries. Long after the US troops pull out (or retreat), the Project Management Office and the US Embassy in Baghdad will continue to control the reconstruction process and funding. Neither will all the troops leave, since there are plans to station over 100.000 in the country for several years at the 14 permanent military bases being set up around the country, advance bases for strikes against other countries as Washington goes for the throat of the world's richest region in mineral resources.
This is the truth, not the lies spun by Washington about freedom and democracy and evil dictators and WMD.
