Earlier promulgated in Exterior's December 1991 subjectDuring the business of Kuwait, Iraqi soldiers ofttimes defecated in the finest suite of the finest houses they could breakthrough. It was a motion of hate and ignorance and despite. So, in crawfish, the Iraqis literally set Kuwait alight. Thither was no strategical implication to this, no military reward for the retreating Iraqi soldiery. Blowing the oil wells—nearly all the oil wells in the country—was the environmental tantamount of crapping on the carpeting.Because rough abandon winds would expect hummer and smut leastways 500 miles Read more [...]

Now I was finally able to recreate the plausible picture of what happened in Iraq in 2003.
Expecting to face serious opposition, the U.S. military to prepare for conducting "psychological warfare." The country has taken different paths hundreds (if not thousands) of repeaters, which are located in public places, especially the military. Some of these devices have found the Iraqi security forces, but most of it remains hidden. This is not surprising - to judge by the surviving fragmentary descriptions, dimensions repeater is not so great.

And alarmed me was that too obvious similarity with the 1991 version, distributed across all channels. Again, it is very difficult to verify because the world gets information only from the lips of Americans. But that sounded out of the mouth, looks, to put it mildly, quite contradictory.
So, the first week of the war in 2003. Famously the invasion, Americans suddenly faced with strong resistance. Although the quantity and quality of weapons the Iraqi army is much worse than in 2003, the spirit remains the same. The first reports of army PR (about surrendering captured Iraqi army divisions, Read more [...]
This story just adds extra touches to my current picture. It turns out that Americans do not simply lied, saying the presence of Iran's proscribed weapons. They even tried to foist these weapons to Saddam through nominees (as we have already established, "Al Qaeda" is not more than the agents of U.S. intelligence.) Because otherwise the reason for the invasion of Iraq was extremely difficult to find. Let us remember this history.
Saddam came to power back in the 70's and enjoyed it in the hot U.S. support. Especially praiseworthy words were addressed to him when he was at Read more [...]

- And what if all of them replaced?
- Who? - I did not understand.
- Well, all those Russian politicians. They had all been to the missions abroad. There, they could easily be replaced by other people!
- You're talking nonsense, - I laughed, - is this possible?
Then Gerard told me the following story told him by a new friend, a former Iraqi scientists, who now lives in France. In 1996, Iraqi security Read more [...]

I looked at the television screen, where, while in Iraq, are the Dick Cheney - inspiration - and his disciple McCain: they sit in a certain discipline audience with simple chairs, where there are various bosses, trained in the art to kill.
Here is a quote from the speech Cheney passed ubiquitous CNN CNN:
"We have made progress in terms of security as well as on the board."
"When you come here a few years and see how events developed - by the way, this week marks the fifth anniversary of the moment when we began the war in March 2003 - you know, that was a lot of good, and not just Read more [...]
