The Complete History Of US Presidents Bombing Iraq Back Into The Stone Age

Tyler Durden's picture


What else is there to add here, it is simple really: if need i) distraction from domestic scandal, ii) a ready source of emergency offshore oil or pushing US E&P companies to drill , or iii) a script for a Hollywood movie provisionally titled "Wag the dog", then just bomb the living crap out of Iraq. Even US presidents (all of them beginning with the first Bush) have figured it out.

Behold, the biggest contribution to the civilized world by the US military-industrial complex and their administration puppets:

  • Operation Desert Shield
  • Operation Desert Storm
  • Operation Provide Comfort I and II
  • Operation Southern Watch
  • Operation Desert Strike
  • Operation Northern Watch
  • Operation Desert Fox
  • Operation Southern Focus
  • Operation Iraqi Freedom
  • Operation New Dawn
  • Operation [Provide Humanitarian Aid]

P.S. Dear Iraqi people, our condolences.

This is strictly for domestic consumption.  The US does not have many places they can bomb now as the "black hats" are blocking their "fun".  But there is always Iraq.  The good news is the US is well practiced at bombing Iraq and they are good at it.  Iraq has lots of brown people.  And it's "worth" it.

Bombs away!!

Anyone miss the days when aircraft carriers were endlessly circling Iran?  I know I do.  I expected it was a prelude to the golden age of bombing.  All kinds of great munitions would be used on virgin territory.  In Iraq the US is simply bombing bomb holes at this point.  Yeah, they keep renaming the Iraqi targets to try and keep it fresh, but you can never go home to Iraq 1991.  Good times.

And what's with Kerry?  You could always rely on Chaney or Albright for a spine chilling quote at the right time.  Kerry?  Meh.

Operation "Destroy Secular Arab Countries and Unleash Islamic Crazies 1: Iraq"

Operation "Destroy Secular Arab Countries and Unleash Islamic Crazies 2: Iraq, again"

Operation "Destroy Secular Arab Countries and Unleash Islamic Crazies 3: Egypt"

Operation "Destroy Secular Arab Countries and Unleash Islamic Crazies 4: Libya"

Operation "Destroy Secular Arab Countries and Unleash Islamic Crazies 5: Iran Oh Wait Iran is already fundamentalist so never mind HEADFAKE"

Operation "Destroy Secular Arab Countries and Unleash Islamic Crazies 6: Syria"

Operation "Destroy Secular Arab Countries and Unleash Islamic Crazies 7: Iraq, AGAIN THIS TIME WE FINISH IT"

Oh great! You've added to my pile. I have been pouring over articles in the Journal of Infectious Disease, Virology and Immunology for information on transmission and pathology. It's getting frustrating because I need more than the synopsis of the abstract so it look like I need to subscribe to get the detail of the info I seek.

I guess the free information is allowed so I would be unable to garner sufficient info to develop an efficacious compound for treatment or an undeserved award for a breakthrough idea. Obviously this is not my intent, just knowledge about the virus.

Maybe the veterinary journals are more loose about their research than the human. I will get to this and give you a response. The more I have delved into what I have read the more depressed I get. This virus is a killing machine and I really am losing hope for a effective vaccine being developed that would work in all cases with multiple strain outbreaks. The pathogenesis is astounding with multiple mechanisms. Pray hard this just burns out.

Remember also freedom fries ...

Remember also how much hate FRANCE got in the US for NOT wanting to contribute in this dirty Irak war.

The TV news showing proud Americans pouring French wines in the gutter, the “cheese-eating surrender MONKEYS” things – all kind of silly jokes still continuing, even in ZH …. Five years of Anti-French slander and vilification was thus thrust by the White House, the administration, members of Congress, governors and by lackeys in the media (like Fox News or Murdoch Press).

Indeed Sudden Debt, you are right. 


What a continous horror show the people of Iraq continue to endure - I mean even those in the west re-building their lives with some success, still remain fragile and still scarred and shaken by this horror show.


500,000 children under the age of 5 were killed by Sanctions - I mean ok, I get it, the World "imposed" them - but who suffered? Not Saddam or his gangs - but innocents.  It really makes my blood boil.


What's in store for the next generation will not be a secret.  I mean sometimes I wonder if the true "Chosen People" (I say this in dark jest), are in fact the people of Iraq, because it seems everyone wants a piece of them!


Most of the Iraqis I've met on my travels are well educated, well meaning folks, so maybe that's why they are getting butchered. 


Compare that with the blood thirsty Zionists and Israelis (who are doing killing and butchering - directly, and via US proxy), and you can see what approach seems to increase the chances of success.


So what's the message to be taken from this? Be like the organ harvesting zionists, charge your friends interest, hoard the green paper money, fuck everyone else - what a sick fucking world this is.

I had asked a returned vet from one of the latest Zionist bomb fests in Iraq how much depleted uranium he thought he might have ingested while he was over there, he had no clue as to what I was talking about. When lung cancer shows up in him in a few years, I'm sure the VA will tell him it's from global warming or something.

You have to watch this PBS documentary to understand who is the force behind Iraq's current situation.

George Bush once said: "Bring them on, we got the force necessary to deal with the security situation"

Analyst: "Iraq is a country which is not normal and Obama wanted to normalise Iraq"

The most important decision made by Paul Bremmer to remove over 20,000 Baath party members from their jobs which was order No .1 in Iraq in 2003 and Paul Bremmer says at 13:00 that he does not remember having conversations with 2 top commanders with deep knowledge of Iraqi and Middle Eastern history.

Abu Ghraib prison was created just because US did not have sufficient intelligence on the resources of the Iraqis fighting for freedom. Neutral Iraqis went to prison in order for the US to gather intelligence and when they came out, they were hard core elements against the US.

And, then the 'surge' happened in mid 2007.

Between 2011 and mid 2014, there was just one visit by a US cabinet level official to Iraq.

The Bible contains a geographical definition of the Land of Israel. 

The first, found in Genesis 15:18-21, seems to define the land that was given to all of the children of Abraham, including Ishmael, Zimran, Jokshan, Midian, etc. 

It describes a large territory, "from the brook of Egypt to the Euphrates", comprising all of modern-day Israel, the Palestinian Territories, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Iraq, as well as Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E, Oman, Yemen, most of Turkey, and all the land east of the Nile river.

 The "world" does not need any empire (or emperor) to have any of the things you listed,

nor does the "world" need an "indispensable empire" to avoid whatever the

buzzword "chaos" conjures up in your hubristic and fearful imagination.

Eretz Israel

The Clique that Sold Us the Iraq War

Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties(February 1982)

"Iraq, rich in oil on the one hand and internally torn on the other, is guaranteed as a candidate for Israel's targets. Its dissolution is even more important for us than that of Syria. Iraq is stronger than Syria. In the short run it is Iraqi power which constitutes the greatest threat to Israel. An Iraqi-Iranian war will tear Iraq apart and cause its downfall at home even before it is able to organize a struggle on a wide front against us. Every kind of inter-Arab confrontation will assist us in the short run and will shorten the way to the more important aim of breaking up Iraq into denominations as in Syria and in Lebanon. In Iraq, a division into provinces along ethnic/religious lines as in Syria during Ottoman times is possible. So, three (or more) states will exist around the three major cities: Basra, Baghdad and Mosul, and Shi'ite areas in the south will separate from the Sunni and Kurdish north. It is possible that the present Iranian-Iraqi confrontation will deepen this polarization."

NBC reporter Jim Miklaszewski noted that Pentagon officials believe that a new generation of Americans will have to commit to resolving the situation In Iraq.

“There’s always somebody in the building looking at the long-term,” Miklaszewski continued, “and it does not look very good to U.S. military officials I’m talking to.”

“Even if we resolve those two situations, and even if ISIS was somehow contained in Iraq, people are now looking at this as being a 10 to 20-year challenge” he concluded.
