The loss of three major cities in Iraq and the territory around it is a major blow for the US Empire and planned American Century that the US has been trying to create. It was a real blow is to see US trained puppet soldiers running from battle and throwing off their uniforms. For anti-imperialists such as I, it was great to see the US house of cards begin to fall. It was not such a good feeling to see the people of Iraq subjected to Islamic fundamentalists.
George W. Bush Invaded Iraq, in March 20, 2003. He focused on non-existent weapons of mass destruction and tried to pretend it has something to do with 9/11. In reality he tried to put the American Century plan into action. The American Century was a document that openly championed the US becoming the major empire in the world and creating a type of one world government.
Bush’s invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan began the process of putting that plan into action through brute force. Bush was willing to conquer entire nations and put into place US style puppet governments to push US philosophy, politics, economics and even culture. The American Century has not been refered to in several years. US leaders may have figured that the policies were to blatantly imperialistic. Yet they have continued to follow this plan despite the fact that a website put up to promote and explain it has been taken down.
There is no doubt that this plan was aimed at the Middle-east since oil and other rich resources are found there. It also explains why issues of civil war and atrocities in Africa get ignored since that continent lacks any real resources the US needs, except diamonds which can come from South Africa.
Right now, extreme Islamic groups are THE major obstacles to US world domination and for them to take part of Iraq is a real setback—a bloody nose to a world-wide bully. Iraq was the birth place of regime change and a show place for the phony US style democracy. The plan is for them to replace dictatorships in the Middle-east. Many pundits on this matter are citing Syria as the beginning of the problem (See; Jonathan Marcus, BBC). The US supports the Free Syrian Army, but does not want any of that support to go to al Qaeda style groups, who have flocked to that country. Now their entire imperialist plans seem in danger.
For progressives, there is nothing good about a Middle-east dominated by Islamic fundamentalists. However it is good to see US imperialism suffer a major defeat.- សតិវ អតុ
