Unfortunately lixy, things must REALLY be going to hell if this is “suddenly” worthy of the media’s attention. I first posted about this probably a year ago – thats precisely why I never bought into the “Iran arming the insurgency” bullshit. Why would they need to?
Between the 1/4 million small arms…
FEARS OVER SECRET U.S. ARMS SHIPMENT
The 99-tonne cache of AK47s was to have been secretly flown out from a US base in Bosnia. But the four planeloads of arms have vanished.
Orders for the deal to go ahead were given by the US Department of Defense. But the work was contracted out via a complex web of private arms traders…
and the 400 tons of looted explosives…
A mess of missing ordnance
the disclosure that tons of advanced explosives had somehow vanished from an Iraqi weapons dump came as no surprise to David Kay…
UN: 400 tons of Iraq explosives missing
and possibly several BILLION dollars…
Audit: U.S. lost track of $9 billion in Iraq funds
While people think this is all about incompetence, its NOT. This is part of the lunatic neocon strategy to destabilize Middle Eastern countries through civil wars. Just like Israel’s senseless pummeling of Lebanon – the only “strategy” was to create chaos.
When you say our “presence in Iraq only made Al-Qaeda stronger” – thats THE POINT. The war on terror has already increased terrorism sevenfold.
“Incompetence” implies failure – yet the neocons are achieving most of their “not so well publicized” stated goals.
My simplified analogy would be like, if they said PUBLICLY that they needed to drive from New York to California and through a series of missteps and blunders and “unforeseen” circumstances, they somehow ended up in South America. Of course all the talk everywhere was bewilderment and anger at their sheer incompetence EVERY step of the way.
But if anyone bothered to look at less public statements from the real planners of this “trip”, they just might be amazed to find that South America was their planned destination after all…
Neocons Advocate Civil War in Iraq as “Strategic” Policy
Iran ‘is training Basra killers’
The MoD said the new claims supported Tony Blair’s concerns of an Iran link.
Iraqi police detain two British soldiers in Basra
“Two persons wearing Arab uniforms opened fire at a police station in Basra. A police patrol followed the attackers and captured them to discover they were two British soldiers,” an Interior Ministry source told Xinhua.
The two soldiers were using a civilian car packed with explosives, the source said…
“Iraqi police recently caught two terrorists with a car full of explosives. Would it surprise you to learn they were British Special Forces?”
Reminiscent of the corruption free-for-all Vietnam became at the end, unbelievable quantities of weapons and supplies missing from storage areas.
