Dutch nazis want bigger bloodbath in Iraq


This video is called Anti Racism Demonstration – Amsterdam 22 March 2014.

In the USA, the extreme Right protestant religious America Family Association, like the violent extreme Sunni jihadis of ISIS, considers the persecuted Yazidis in Iraq ‘devil worshipers’.

Another far Right Christian in the USA, televangelist Pat Robertson, wants to use ISIS as a pretext for a big international escalation of violence in Iraq.

On the Facebook page of the Dutch nazis of the Nederlandse Volksunie (no, I won’t link to them), the party again advocates a NATO military attack in Iraq (like they already did earlier).

Dutch neo-fascists discuss that issue there (translated):

Marvin Smits The 14 words of hitler is spoken by the truth [in English in original; the rest translated from Dutch] The Aryan will survive and overcome. They just need to wake up !!! Stand up and fight

August 8 at 15:22

The infamous ‘14 words‘ about white supremacy play a big role among neo-nazis. Marvin Smits does not seem to know the words are not by Hitler, but by a much later nazi, David Lane (1938-2007), from the USA (basing himself on a longer sentence from Hitler’s Mein Kampf).

Also in that discussion on Iraq on the NVU Facebook page (in English, no need to translate):

Fabrizio Aert Death to Islam 14/88

’14’ stands for the already mentioned racist ’14 words’. ’88’, two times the eighth letter of the Latin alphabet, stands for ‘HH’=Heil Hitler.

Another neo-fascist contribution (translated):

Mike Dorn Lupercal We need a crusade, a PURE crusade, let them slaughter everyone. For people and fatherland!

August 9 at 3:57

Mike Dorn Lupercal last words ‘For people and fatherland!’ are in Dutch ‘Voor volk en vaderland’. Volk en Vaderland was the name of the weekly of the Dutch nazi party NSB of the 1930s and 1940s, with Anton Mussert as its leader.

The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) is increasingly disturbed by the serious and deteriorating humanitarian situation in northern Iraq. We reiterate our previous unequivocal condemnation of the violence perpetrated by ISIS (here) with the “depth and scale of barbarity attributed to ISIS” being “particularly unconscionable”: here.

US combat troops return to Iraq: here.

Dutch fundamentalist religious politician wants Iraq war re-start


This video from the USA is called Robert Greenwald Discusses 7th Anniversary of Iraq War and Rethink Afghanistan War on The Ed Show.

As we have seen on this blog, Bryan Fischer, the spokesman of the fundamentalist Protestant Christian American Families Association in the USA supports the violence of the Sunni Islamic ISIS fundamentalists in Iraq against the Yazidi minority, agreeing with ISIS that Yazidis are supposedly “devil worshipers.”

In the Netherlands, the fundamentalist Protestant political party SGP has quite opposite views than their US American counterparts.

NOS TV in the Netherlands reports that SGP member of parliament Bisschop wants Dutch F-16 warplanes to join the United States bombing of northern Iraq. The Dutch government would supposedly be ‘cowards’ if they don’t start bombing.

Mr Bisschop has not learned the bloody lessons of the United States war in Iraq; and of the Dutch military involvement in that.

By David Edwards in the USA:

Televangelist Pat Robertson on Monday invited retired General Paul Vallely to discuss why President Barack Obama and his entire national security staff needed to be removed from the U.S. government.

According to Vallely, the United States would suffer “cataclysmic events” if the president continued to refuse to go to war against the militant group ISIS in Iraq.

Iraq and the USA, a bloody history


This video from the USA about the Iraq war says about itself:

WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception

8 March 2013

Directed by MediaChannel Editor-in-Chief, Danny Schechter

This documentary is about the media itself, viewed as a weapon system: Weapons of Mass Deception. Those weapons drove a media war, a war that many now believe perverted freedom of the press in order to manipulate public support for a real war.

Rather than challenging official assertions, most media outlets, used patriotism as a promotional tool, pandered to unjustified fears and nationalist sentiment, extolled the brilliance of military technology, and uncritically trumpeted the Bush administration’s “product.”

From remembering the Maine to the Gulf of Tonkin and now ten years after smoking guns and mushroom clouds, what have we learned?

ISIS in Iraq: A disaster made in the USA

9 August 2014

The launching of a US air war against the Islamist State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Iraq will only compound a catastrophe that has “Made in the USA” stamped all over it. The overrunning of much of the country by the Al Qaeda offshoot is the result not of a “failed policy,” but of criminal decisions that go back nearly twenty-five years.

The Gulf War of 1991 was followed by more than a decade of brutal sanctions and air strikes that killed an estimated one million Iraqis. Next was the conspiracy, hatched behind the backs of the American people, to use outright lies as the pretext for a war of conquest launched in 2003.

It is not possible to discuss the current situation without naming names: Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Rice, Powell—the plotters who knowingly lied to the American people and the world to justify a war for oil and US imperialist domination. As everyone now knows, their claims of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction were a tissue of lies.

The other big lie was the claim that Saddam Hussein was in league with Al Qaeda. Before the US invasion and occupation of Iraq, there was no Al Qaeda in the country. The secular Baathist regime was hostile to the Islamist jihadist group. But the overthrow of Hussein and installation of a sectarian Shiite puppet regime opened the door for Al Qaeda to set up shop and flourish.

The authors of this slaughter themselves coined the terms that condemn them, such as “shock and awe.” They introduced other terms into the world’s vocabulary: Abu Ghraib, Fallujah, white phosphorus, rendition, water-boarding and Guantanamo.

Thousands of US troops were killed in the eight-year war and occupation. Tens of thousands more suffered permanent physical and psychological damage. Trillions of dollars were squandered while US workers’ living standards were devastated by layoffs, wage cuts and the gutting of social programs.

Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis were slaughtered, millions were turned into refugees, and the entire country was reduced to near rubble. Sectarian tensions between Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish populations were deliberately stoked as part of a divide-and-rule strategy.

Obama, who won election largely by presenting himself as an opponent of the Iraq war, once in office continued the war and adhered to the timeline proposed by Bush for withdrawing US troops. He saw to it that none of the conspirators of the Bush years were held to account for their crimes.

Not only that. He and accomplices such as Hillary Clinton cultivated Al Qaeda-linked groups, such as ISIS, and used them as proxy forces in their wars for regime-change in Libya and Syria. The result was 50,000 deaths in Libya, the murder of the deposed president, Muammar Gaddafi, and the descent of the country into anarchy, bloody fighting between rival militias, and the collapse of its oil industry.

Thus far, the civil war stoked up by Washington and led by ISIS in Syria has killed over 100,000 and turned millions into refugees. Now, Washington is bombing in Iraq the very forces it has built up in Syria.

The attempt by the president in his Thursday night announcement to present the launching of an air war in Iraq as a humanitarian effort to rescue besieged Yazidis reeks of hypocrisy—all the more given his full backing for Israeli mass murder of civilians in Gaza. Obama’s claim that he will carry out only a “limited” and “targeted” campaign and not send “combat troops” back to Iraq is another lie.

“As the president made clear,” Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said Friday, “the United States military will continue to take direct action against [ISIS] when they threaten our personnel and facilities.” Another official said, “The enemy gets a vote. If they stop, we stop. If they attack, we bring down the hammer.” The current campaign could last weeks, officials said.

The very same people who have set aflame the entire Middle East are preparing a similar disaster in Ukraine and mapping out plans for war against Russia and China, both nuclear powers.

As always, the American media pumps out government propaganda in the guise of “news.” In all the coverage seeking to justify the renewed bombing campaign, not one of the well-heeled commentators and columnists thinks to ask whether the American government and military bears responsibility for the catastrophe in Iraq.

All of this shows that the eruption of US militarism abroad goes hand in hand with the breakdown of democracy at home. None of those responsible for these crimes are answerable to the American people. None of them are held to account. They are part of an oligarchy of corporate billionaires, intelligence chiefs and military brass that rules America.

It is up to the working class to disarm the warmongers and bring the war criminals to justice. The alternative is one war after another, leading inevitably to a new world war, this time with nuclear weapons.

With a series of air strikes beginning Friday and continuing through the weekend, the United States has gone to war again in Iraq. This new imperialist military adventure has been launched in defiance of overwhelming popular opposition and without a shred of legal or constitutional authority: here.

US President Barack Obama authorised the air strikes to protect US interests in the region. Many US oil companies have bases and offices in Irbil: here.
