The United States of America is stuck in 1991! The world is changing, nations are rediscovering their nationhood, Iraq implements new ways of doing business with other nations, and yet America is still fighting the war of 1991! The nations are re-establishing their diplomatic links with Baghdad while America is still "protecting" the Kurds in the North and the Shiites in the South with bombs and destruction on their heads.
As recent as yesterday over 14 Iraqis were killed by America's bombs in this strange self-imposed mission of "protecting" the people from a ficticious "enemy". It was not President Saddam Hussein who for the last 9 years has been harassing Kurds and Shiites with fighter planes and bombers, America has. And so the day will come, when America will try to save face as America's Middle East policy looks more and more ridiculous by the minute!
UNMOVIC (UNSCOM) spies will never be re-admitted into Iraq, and so what in the end is the point for America harassing the Iraqi people other than to speak mere conjecture in their twisted logic which makes claim of the assumption: "Iraq is building weapons of mass destruction!" and by that rather stale assertion justifying their deadly intrusions into Iraqi air space.
The claim is laughable in face of many nations either openly or secretly stockpiling these weapons - including their own. Israel has them, as well as atomic bombs, and America is not harassing Israel with no-fly zones and regular bombing runs!
Our information states that America will seek a "face-saving" way out. I don't believe their retreat from the Middle East will happen without many American troop licking the wounds of their bruised bodies.
August 2012: In my talks with Uthrania I have concluded on more than one occasion that "The United States has ripped the soul out of Iraq. What she as a nation has done to Iraq is beyond description and magnitude in wickedness, and I have no idea on how this injustice against the Iraqi people can ever be properly brought back into balance before the councils of the just."
