Happy Anniversary Free Iraq!
By Anwaar Hussain

Truth Spring

This 18th of March, 2007 it will be the 4th anniversary of Iraq’s brutal occupation by American forces and also the 4th birthday of ‘free Iraq’. The only things that have changed are the advanced dates, the even more advanced brutality of the nature of occupation and the addition of some gutless democrats to the cheerleaders on the Capitol Hill. The bloodletting goes on as America continues to cling to Iraq’s throat like the bulldog named ‘Cherokee’ in Jack London’s ‘White fang’. And like him again, America inches its teeth ever closer to that unfortunate nation’s jugular with each spasmodic jerk of the dying Iraq.

The occupation surely continues. What is unsure is that the Iraqi child Ali of the picture above has lived or died. We the world, of course, watch on helplessly.

The piece below was originally written on the 3rd anniversary of Iraq’s occupation. Only the dates called out for a change and that has been done. I can only hope that I don’t have to reproduce it on 18th of March next year.

This 4th anniversary of Iraq’s occupation, we will mourn the mangled corpse of the Iraqi nationhood that America continues to drag around the vast deserts of that country, with fangs bared and claws out, in an unjustified, illegal and bloody occupation.

This 4th anniversary of Iraq’s occupation, we will note the fact that America threatens to lay waste to the nations next door on daily basis and considers it immoral if those countries even think of arming themselves to prevent the same fate.

This 4th anniversary of Iraq’s occupation, we will derive a very simple lesson from America’s Iraq jaunt that if a country wants to avoid a U.S. led invasion, they had better arm themselves to the gills and with nuclear weapons too if possible. Quite plainly, it is a matter of life and death for such countries.

This 4th anniversary of Iraq’s occupation, we will remember that not only is America the only user of the nuclear weapon on human race in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, she is also known to have contemplated using them in almost every major military conflict ever since e.g. against the people of Korea, Cuba and Vietnam.

This 4th anniversary of Iraq’s occupation, we will remind ourselves that as the fight for resources and markets sharpens among the various capitalist powers, the likelihood of nuclear conflicts breaking out grows exponentially and that, unless the global citizenry wakes up, all the treaties and assurances in the world will not stop this brazen display of capitalism in decay.
