US soldiers build Berlin wall in Baghdad, Iraq

Bush and reconstruction in Iraq, cartoonFrom The Guardian in Britain:

US soldiers are building a three-mile wall to separate one of Baghdad’s Sunni enclaves from surrounding Shia neighbourhoods, it emerged today.

The move is part of a contentious security plan that has fuelled fears of the Iraqi capital’s Balkanisation.

When the barrier is finished, the minority Sunni community of Adamiya, on the eastern side of the River Tigris, will be completely gated. Traffic control points manned by Iraqi soldiers will provide the only access, the US military said.

Bush’s Iraq war was officially about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

When that turned out to be lies, the Bush administration flip-flopped to talk about ‘rebuilding’ Iraq, about building houses, schools, hospitals.

Only talk, as the only things built in Iraq, as the US goverment says, are prisons (apparently, dictator Saddam Hussein had not built enough of those).

Oh yes, and the gigantic new US colonial governor’s building embassy in Baghdad.

And now, a wall to keep people apart who had been living together for centuries, but were set against each other in Bush’s and Blair‘s ‘divide and rule strategy‘.
