Iraq Erupts In Religious Frenzy Killing--Sadr Very Pleased
By Elaine Meinel Supkis
As expected, the demolition of the mosque in Samarra has triggered a wave of tremendous violence across Iraq as Shia (Shiites) blame Sunnis. We have no idea who did it but the people were wearing Secret Police Commandos' uniforms and masks.
From the NY Times:
Religious leaders called for restraint after the attack on the golden-domed shrine, located in the volatile town of Samarra. The shrine housed the tombs of two revered leaders of Shiite Islam and symbolized the place where the Imam Mahdi, a mythical, messianic figure, disappeared from this earth. Believers in the imam say he will return when the apocalypse is near, to cleanse the world of its evils.The earliest stories think Sunnis wearing fake uniforms did this but what if the uniforms were what Sadr's guys were wearing? They are the ones who had easy access to these garments and they knew the code words and they had handcuffs, etc.
Sunni Arab politicians said that more than 25 Sunni mosques across Iraq had been attacked in retaliation, although there was no independent confirmation of the number.
The blast in Samarra took place at about 7 a.m. and shook the city, a Sunni-dominated area that is nevertheless sacred to Shiites. The gunmen entered the shrine and handcuffed guards in the building, then set about planting the explosives, an official of the provincial governorate said. There were no immediate reports of casualties, but the golden dome was entirely destroyed, as well as three-quarters of the structure.
In Baghdad, the American ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad, said in a televised statement that the attack on the shrine was a "heinous crime" deliberately intended to foment strife, and that the United States would help to rebuild the structure.The Sunni didn't want to end the talks. The American rulers wanted the talks to continue so the Sunni could get some political power. So the list of who wanted these talks to end quickly are very short. At the top of the list is Sadr.
The bombing of the shrine in Samarra came after two days of vicious bloodshed and political turmoil. A marketplace bombing in Baghdad and other attacks on Tuesday that killed 28 people, and violence on Monday that killed at least 26 people, signaled that a period of relative calm during political talks had come to an abrupt end.
Once again, the idea of the Apocalypse pops up. People want this to happen. Millions of Muslims, millions of Christians and quite a few other religions. This mental disorder is very powerful, very potent and very violent. They don't plan for a future because there is, by definition, no future.
As Babylon burns as it blows up and as it writhes, our government rituallistically says they will rebuild it all yet we can't rebuild squat since we are going bankrupt and aside from that, anything built will be destroyed. The palaces we refitted, for example, were handed over the the Shiite run govenment and within hours was totally looted and stand now as ruins.
Here is some more damning information leading me to suspect the bombers are not Sunni: From Associated Press:
Khalilzad has urged the Iraqis to form a unity government in which nonsectarian figures control the ministries of Defense, which runs the army, and Interior, which is responsible for the police.Both Sadr and he are yelling that no one can protect the Shia from attacks except themselves. So they want to be able to terrorize the Sunni, they want control of the vital military/police forces. They also want the Americans to leave pretty soon since they feel they can do whatever they want and you know this will be some sort of ugly bloodbath.
The current interior minister, Bayan Jabr, is a member of al-Hakim's party. His commandos have been accused by Sunni Arabs of widespread human rights abuses against Sunni civilians.
Here is the Tower of Babel which western artists used as their model for many centuries. It is also in Samarra.
The people of many nations, many religions, have poured into Babylon this last three years, speaking many languages, precious little communication going on, they have set to quarrelling. From the Bible:
Maybe 1% of our troops and diplomats and operatives in Iraq speak any of the languages spoken there. And even within the language, the religious divisions are tremendous and growing thanks to Americans using violence to create a liberal state.
1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As men moved eastward, [a] they found a plain in Shinar [b] and settled there.
3 They said to each other, "Come, let's make bricks and bake them thoroughly." They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth."
5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. 6 The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."
8 So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel [c] —because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.
Of course, we had no intention of liberality, we wanted only to have a fake front liberalism while screaming at liberals at home, Bush and his gang would turn around and smile and tell the Muslims they wanted civil rights for women and freedom of speech and religion and then they would do the opposite here at home and there in Iraq. So things go from bad to worse thanks to insincere and downright evil intentions.
The screamfest at the stalwart Palestinians are beginning to backfire. America is again, losing huge status playing the bully boy for Israel. Then we go to Iraq to mediate between rival religions that have hated each other for literally 1,000 years.
The religious riots are spreading like wildfire. From the BBC:
Christian mobs rampaged through the city attacking Muslims in retaliation for anti-Christian riots in the north.Another state we are deep inside, meddling in bad ways, is Nigeria. We are demanding the rebels release the kidnapped oil workers and surrender to us so we can pump all the oil without paying them hardly anything for it.
"Thousands of people who have been displaced from their homes are now sheltered at the police and army barracks," the official said.
Earlier on Tuesday, the authorities in Bauchi in northern Nigerian imposed a curfew after at least 13 people were killed in a sectarian riot.
The Bauchi riot followed violence over the weekend in the two northern towns of Maiduguri and Katsina, which began as demonstrations against the Danish cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.
More than 10,000 people died in communal violence across the country in the first few years following Nigeria's return to democratic rule in 1999, but in recent months these clashes have less frequent.
Meanwhile, at home, many Gulf War I vets are dying from Depleted Uranium. From Rense.com:
In the article Arthur Bernklau, executive director of Veterans for Constitutional Law, reportedly wrote that "thousands of our military have suffered and died from, [and depleted uranium] has finally been identified as the cause of this sickness, eliminating the guessing. The terrible truth is now being revealed." Bernklau went on to detail several alarming statistics. The historical disability rate amongst soldiers last century was about 5 percent, although it approached 10 percent during Vietnam. But due to the use of depleted uranium in the battlefield, 56 percent of the 580,400 solders that served in the first Gulf War were on Permanent Medical Disability by 2000. 11,000 Gulf War veterans are already dead. Now 518,739 Gulf War Veterans, almost all of them, are currently on medical disability.This is all so sad. Aside from them dying, their children are being born with all sorts of illnesses and genetic defects. We made a deal with the devil to win no matter what so we ended up using the devil's tools, lying to ourselves that this is all for the good.
Things are going to get worse, alas. No one is willing to let go of anyone's throats so all will attempt to strangle each other. and remember, whoever is orchestrating things loves magic numbers and the big, big magic number of them all is 6/6/6. Namely, the beginning of June, this year.
