IRAQ ARCHIVES

The Persian Gulf War originated with Iraqi's invasion of Kuwait on Aug. 2, 1990. Iraqi president Saddam Hussein declared that the invasion was a response to overproduction of oil and illegally pumping for more than $2 billion in oil from a contested reserve that lay beneath both countries. Iraq also demanded Kuwait cancel the debt Iraq owed from the Iran-Iraq War.  ... More at Gulf War  a  brief history

An enterprise that was misconceived from the beginning was hardly going to reach a smooth end. Now that it has started, it has to be run differently - with more money, more personnel, more allies and a timetable for free elections. To get all that may require one more thing, which only the American people can provide, 14 months from now: new leadership. Iraq becomes a hub of terror under US occupation

It's a cruel story that civilized people will never be comfortable with, as we wonder what kind of thoughts ran through the boy's head in his last moments.

The killing of six British soldiers by an angry mob of civilians in Majar-al-Kabir near Basra in Iraq on Tuesday is a grim reminder of the dangers that await Indian troops should the Vajpayee government agree to their deployment in aid of the US-UK occupation of that country.  Iraq killings bode ill for Indian troops

The deadliest single attack on coalition forces came on March 23, the early days of the U.S.-led invasion, when Iraqis opened fire on a U.S. Army maintenance convoy near the southern town of Nasiriyah, killing 11 soldiers.  The casualties were a shock to British troops

He said that all the other doctors had already gone, fearing that the most perilous moment was this power vacuum between the collapse of Saddam Husseinís regime and the Americans taking control. 

ďThis is a government hospital ó we are located on the government side,Ē he explained. ďIím working for the Government. Iím a symbol of the regime. Even if I donít think I am, they will think I am.

"This is just a scene from hell here. All the vehicles on fire. There are bodies burning around me, there are bodies lying around, there are bits of bodies on the ground. This is a really bad own goal by the Americans. This is just a scene from hell

This war was never a fair fight. Iraq is a fifth-rate power, shrunken in military prowess by at least 30 percent since Gulf War I. 

But there are millions of " Fouads" in Iraq, and they are fighting back. Not for Saddam, or for the Baath Party, but due to the most basic of human instincts: hatred of foreign invaders. 

No amount of "shock and awe" will erase it from their hearts. Even after an American "victory," it will smolder, and its smoke will rise up and make the very air unbreathable for the occupiers.
