Since United States, Israel, Britain and Saudi Arabia led illegal invasion of Iraq in March 2003 using weapons of mass deception before the war and actual weapons of mass destruction (WMD) through depleted uranium during the war claiming million lives and leaving millions as refugees until today,

The western belligerence persists to achieve diabolical agenda and that being Iraq fragmentation conforming to imperialists divide and conquer strategy.

United States, Israel, EU and Gulf dictatorships together currently wreak havoc on the planet openly funding, arming and training terrorists earlier in Libya and lately in Iraq and Syria.

Not to mention the prevalent policy destroying Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Mali and other parts of Africa.

The terror masterminds i.e. United States, Israel, EU and regional coalition elsewhere focused on destabilization with uniform effort to sabotage stability and progress world over.

Iraq having been subjected to enormous suffering going back to United States ally Saddam Hussein persecution poignantly with U.S. and Britain supplied ammunition plus chemical weapons used against Iraqi and Iranian population in the U.S. instigated Iraq-Iran warfare and,

Subsequently on Kurds and others in the country is not released from hegemony control over the oil rich nation.

The superficial withdrawal of U.S. forces in December 2011 substituted with contemporary proxies viz. private contractors and CIA as well as Mossad operatives fomenting violence besides recent deployment of three thousand and more U.S. troops to create more tension in the war fatigued state.

United States disintegration of Iraq commenced with allocation of oil reserves territory Northern Iraq as Kurdistan in May 2006 granting autonomy represented by President, Vice President and Prime Minister synonymous to Federal Government in Baghdad in political, economic and other affairs.

Although the sedition initially presented as semi-autonomous province of Iraq,

Kurdistan political structure is anything but provincial and from inception leaderships maintaining close ties with hard line regimes in Tel Aviv and Washington until now pose conflict of interest witnessed in direct oil import negotiations between Ankara and Erbil, the Kurdistan capital bypassing Iraqi government in protocol.

Similarly, creating controversy for Ankara on this issue with political opposition in the domestic front for backdoor deals lacking in transparency defying constitution and democratic rule of law.

United States ignited sparks in ongoing sectarianism aimed at delegitimizing U.S. installed government under Shia leadership Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is a twist of irony considering the turn of events after first Iraqi election until now.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki bilateral and trilateral relations with Israel’s arch nemeses Iran and Syria has been the bone of contentions prompting United States overt and Israel’s covert intervention despite their brutal warfare in accordance with neoconservatives and Zionist devised Project for New American Century targeting oil abundant and strategically important nations throughout Middle East and other Islamic states in the world.

Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki stance on developments in Syria appropriately favoring political solution whilst rejecting United States promoted terrorism in that embattled nation and economic trade with Iran has brought undercurrents to surface revealed in western disapproval and attempts to derail existing government in Iraq.

United States prolonged occupation depleting Iraq national treasury and openly looting Iraq’s valuable possessions from antiquities to oil fields other than annihilation and decimation of lives, livelihoods and the entire country is imperialists tradition judiciously followed throughout history.

Iraq like Syria is a secular nation with various compositions within Islamic religion like Shia, Sunni and Kurds as predominant members other than Christians and any ethnic minorities in society.

United States incursion to seize control over Iraqi oil and splitting the nation into three or more smaller statelets is the pre-determination repeating exercise on Sudan that was divided into North and South allowing both nations to battle over Abyei territory delivering chaos and carnage.

Furthermore, nation in perpetual conflict is extremely lucrative to imperial powers given arsenal flurry to diverse factions in utter disregard for massive death and destruction from such callous decision.

Iraq could no longer continue bloodshed that only facilitates foreign intrusion declaring the unrest albeit caused by them is beyond containment blaming the lack of security as reason for reoccupation.

Iraqi citizens reconciliation transcending differences and barriers in recognition of each other as Iraqi is imperative for national security and progress.

Iraq belongs to natives and residents across the spectrum and national identity is significant than religious, social or economic denomination.

Kurdish sentiments about Kurdistan is understandable from the past experience in Iraq and relevant plight in Turkey and other parts of the Middle East.

However, western aspiration for Kurds is not necessarily aligned with Kurdish rights to self-determination and the former assertion in this context is disingenuous in addition to hypocritical position based on western powers involvement disrupting the specific cause in Syria, Palestine, Libya, Egypt, Bahrain and other nations across the globe.

The west has reserved Kurdistan for easy access and political maneuver that is not in Kurdish benefit.

Kurds solidarity with rest of Iraq sharing fair political representation and economic prospects made available to every Iraqi citizen is immediate priority terminating conflict and relentless turmoil for peaceful co-existence.

As for remaining groups in Iraq engaged in senseless killings with bombings and explosions nationwide, individual goal at national expense compromising citizens’ safety and independence evidently detrimental to present and future generation.

Iraq’s security is under siege and demonstrated just ahead of provincial election when the candidates were consistently pursued and shot dead by elements against peace and democracy.

The election held in twelve out of eighteen provinces past week with two indefinitely postponed and residual four opting out for security reasons per reports is rather unfortunate denying the electorates legitimate local governance.

The six provinces that have differed or avoided polls generate impression of fear and respective authorities inabilities to deal with untoward events enabling terrorism prevail in these areas of the country.

Iraq eliminating terror with broader restrictions on arms influx into the country and cooperation from regional and national security personnel, governments and citizens alike barring corruption are essential to combat internal and external sources behind mayhem.

Reclaiming sovereign rights on oil refineries, securing remotely operated electric power grid by removing deceptively installed software in power plants in 2007, retrieving stolen national assets with class action lawsuit are collective tasks for the nation at large.

In conclusion, Iraq has phenomenal strength and potential to resolve crises and every Iraqi bears responsibility to defend sovereignty and personal liberty systematically undermined with foreign influence and presence in the country.

Unified nation can overcome challenges and the burden lies with Iraq inhabitants displaying patriotism and honest commitment to rebuild the country.

Best Wishes to citizens and leaderships in government, religious and civic institutions in Iraq for everlasting peace and prosperity.

May God bless Iraq to rise like phoenix with resilience in safeguarding territorial integrity, national pride and dignity.

Peace to Iraq!

Peace to all!

Thank you.
