WHY WAS THE UN BOMBED IN BAGHDAD TODAY? (english)
19 Aug 2003
Modified: 20 Aug 2003
The bombing and deaths are a direct consequence of George Bush's unjust war.

From the Mid-Hudson (N.Y.) Activist Newsletter
August 19, 2003

WHY WAS THE UN BOMBED IN IRAQ?

The deadly bombing of UN headquarters in Baghdad Aug. 19 was one more tragic result of the Bush administration's unjust, illegal and immoral war against Iraq.

And it is one more indication along with the mounting anger over the continuing suffering, chaos and deprivation inflicted upon the Iraqi people by the invasion, and the resulting guerrilla war against the U.S. occupation that the White House imperial adventure in Iraq is becoming an utter fiasco.

Many people are asking, why was the UN a target since its only task is to assist in the reconstruction of Iraq? In the eyes of many Iraqis, however, the UN role has been far more complex.

For example, Washington's invasion was not condemned by the United Nations even though it was a clear violation of the UN charter, to which the U.S. is a signatory. Further, the UN has recognized in practice the legitimacy of the U.S.-selected Iraqi governing council, a group which can only make decisions with the approval of Washington. Also, the UN mission in Iraq, under the limited mandate permitted by the White House, is indirectly providing the U.S. with the semblance of international support for its war and occupation.

Lastly, and to many Iraqis most importantly, the sanctions maintained by the U.S. for 12 years, which have resulted in the deaths of well over a million civilians, were carried out under UN auspices.

We deplore the thousands of deaths that have taken place in Iraq as a consequence of George Bush's war, including those which have taken place in Baghdad today.

Terror Attacks Predicted Yesterday (english)
19 Aug 2003
Right after Phony Tony Blair's government began to crumble. See comment 2 at:
http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2003/08/270008.shtml

Seriously, who benefits? Who benefits most from a media distraction for Bush and Blair's lies? What country has been unable to strongarm the UN into supporting its illegal war on Iraq? What UN official was injured in todays bombing who was critical of the U.S.? Can you trust governments which lie to you? Can you trust governments which sends its soldiers off to die based on lies?

Reparations (english)
20 Aug 2003
The UN was involved in killing a million Iraqis.

The Iraqis can help themselves with their oil revenue, they don't need the UN.

Once they have chosen a sovereign government,
they will be entitled to war reparations by the USA
for the illegal war.

Of course most westerners have been shat in the brain
by the constant drip drip of the perception manipulation
and for them the former 2 sentences sound crazy.

We'll see what is crazy once the 911 remote control
covert operation is laid out in the open. It's not
that hard to understand the cabal, it is still a
standard mode of operation of the elites in history.
