Iraq: Civil War or Divide and Conquer

written by


Everyday the US Corporate Media bombards America with the “huge spike in violence” that inevitably means that Iraq is descending into civil war. We’re told there are two choices, it’s a civil war, or its “al Qaeda” - but there is a third option the corporate media refuses to utter.

Even high-school slackers have heard of the age-old strategy “Divide and Conquer”. Is it possible that there are outside forces working this strategy in Iraq today? Perhaps rogue elements inside some government(s) would like to conquer Iraq for the oil, permanent bases, strategic position, etc.

Why is it that nobody in the TV news world can utter this possibility? Is it really that outrageous to think that perhaps the same people that lied to launch the war, are still lying today to prolong the war?

Let’s look at a few “under-reported” stories:

- US car theft rings probed for ties to Iraq bombings
Think about that: Car-bombs in Iraq are made with cars Stolen in the USA Does “al-Qaeda” have C-130s or huge ships capable of transporting the stolen cars to Iraq? If “al Qaeda” had operatives in America, would they really be stealing cars to ship them to Iraq? Seems quite illogical to me.

- Undercover British soldiers caught red-handed: Dressed as Arabs in a car full of explosives with a remote detonator

-Foreign Fighter Lie Exposed: 1300 insurgents arrested- all Iraqis, no foreigners

-Iraqis had a “No to the Occupation” Protest, which was much larger than the Saddam Statue Toppled “Celebration”

- Many Iraqis believe ’suicide’ bombings done by US to start a civil war“I believe it is the Americans who are doing this, pretending it is the Sunni, so there will be a civil war and they can control our wealth.”

- El Salvador-style ‘death squads’ to be deployed by US against Iraq militants
“Death Squads” Negroponte appointed ambassador to Iraq: Six Months later, Death Squads appear

The question:

Is it possible that “Divide and Conquer” is a strategy being employed by our own government, not just Bush and the Republicons, but also by the majority of DC Democrats. Is it possible that this is a war of conquest, and Americans are the modern day equivalent of the “good germans” duped by the gov’t propaganda.

Is it possible that millions of Americans are “willfully ignorant”, accepting the lies because it’s so much easier than confronting the fact that they’ve been supporting murderers and liars.

ps- dont’ forget about the numerous polls indicating that
MOST Iraqis want US Troops to leave.

Still believe it’s a Civil War? One last factoid to consider:
Out of Iraq’s 6.5 million married couples, 2 million are Sunni-Shia unions
