Iraq Occupation Fiasco

April 27, 2004

Allan Elsner, Reuters, April 27 2004
U.S. media more sceptical of Iraq policy
Reporters become less willing to accept Bush administrationpronouncements at their face value.

Sue Diaz, Chr Science Monitor, 27 Aprl 2004
A soldier's hope deferred in Iraq
A mother watching over her Army son's shoulder by e-mail sees shining promise of US mission turn sour

Connie Cass, Associated Press, April 27, 2004
Much of Iraq's forces have quit
About one in every 10 members of Iraq 's security forces " worked against" U.S. troops during the recent militia violence in Iraq, and an additional 40 percent walked off.

Louis Meixler, Associated Press, April 27, 2004
Kurdish-Iraqi leader blames the US
The U.S. allowed its troops to change from "an army of liberation" to "an army of occupation."

Jerusalem Post, April 27, 2004
The US uses cluster bombs in Fallujah
"In Fallujah, the American troops killed at least 800 people and wounded 1,800," Tareq told reporters. "We want to inform the world about the massacres and the human rights violations by the Americans in our city."

Arthur Neslen, The Guardian, April 27 2004
Al Jazeera does accurate reporting...
US forces recently demanded that a team from the Arabic TV station al-Jazeera leave Falluja as a condition for reaching a ceasefire with the local resistance, it came as no surprise

CBS News, TruthOut, April 27, 2004
Woodward shares war secrets
Bsuh to Rumsfeld, 'What have you got in terms of plans for Iraq? What is the status of the war plan? I want you to get on it. I want you to keep it secret.'"

PIPA, US Opinion Survey, April 27, 2004
Americans Continue to Believe Iraq Supported Al Qaeda and Had WMD
Despite statements by Richard Clarke, David Kay, Hans Blix and others, few Americans perceive most experts as saying the contrary.

David Edwards & David Cromwell, New Statesman, April 27, 2004
Fallujah - when the moral crusaders fell silent
The tone says it all. American "contracted civilians" (in fact mercenaries) had been "horribly butchered" in Fallujah, ITN reported, while Iraqi civilians had been "killed" or "caught in crossfire".

James Petras, Iraq Tunnel, April 27, 2004
So where are the Western intellectuals?
Falluja, Baghdad, Ramadi, Nasiriya--an entire people has risen to confront the colonial occupation army, its mercenaries, clients, and collaborators. The paralysis of the US leftist intellectuals, their inability to express solidarity with the Iraqi resistance is a disease which afflicts all "leftist" intellectuals in the colonial countries.

Daniel N. Nelson, Common Dreams, April 27, 2004
Defeat ultimately is self-failure - the symptoms of which are an irreparable imbalance between perceived or real threats and socioeconomic, political and military capacities. In that regard, defeat is the utter breakdown of individual, community, or national security.

Mona Eltahawy, Int Herald Tribune, April 27, 2004
Why the Arab world can thank Bush
Now thanks to the mistakes, blunders and heavy-handed tactics of the U.S. military, Iraqis know they can put up a fight.

William Greider, The Nation, April 27, 2004
Iraq as Vietnam
Wouldn't it be instructive to go back now and re-examine the "documents" the press provided Americans to understand why the United States must invade and conquer?

Reuters, April 27, 2004
Powell never considered resigning over Iraq
"I was always supportive og what we were trying to do."

Paul Krugman, New York Times, April 27, 2004
What went wrong?
The mess in Iraq was created by officials who believed what they wanted to believe, and ignored awkward facts. It seems they have learned nothing.

BBC - April 27, 2004
British ambassadors' letter to Tony Blair
Sent by more than 50 former British ambassadors to Tony Blair, urging him either to influence US policy in the Middle East or to stop backing it.

David Rose, Information Clearing House, April 27, 2004
Bush and Blair made secret pact for Iraq war
President George Bush first asked Tony Blair to support the removal of Saddam Hussein from power at a private White House dinner nine days after the terror attacks of 11 September, 2001.
