Iraq Enterprise Blog
All sorts of interesting blogs popping up...
I'm not sure who is blogging here because in the 'about' section it lists many people. But it is on a website to a company called Iraqi Enterprise. And it's safe to say it's a blog by an Iraqi or Iraqis. There is commentary and links. In fact, the way I found out was by going through my referrals. If I'm spacing out and somebody knows more about them, please do tell in comments or email me. I'm jet-lagged at the moment. So, I could be a bit off mark. I'll call it the Iraq Enterprise Blog for now.
Here's a fascinating bit from an author on the blog. Perhaps it's a bit long, but it raises too many interesting questions. Maybe this is a golden opportunity!
Iraqi Beliefs, Myths, and Puzzles
Puzzle one: Most Iraqis (including Saddam Hussain !) believed that USA would never enter war to dislodge Saddam. We all believed that weakened Saddam was serving USA very well and was prepared to do what ever required of him including many things such as peace with Israel and opening Iraq for American companies. Most Iraqis believed that Saddam was of USA making and it could never find a better servant than him. He has all the qualifications required: Secular, anti Islamic, ruthless and efficient in providing his services to the west. The two bloody wars, which devastated Iraq to the ground, were waged with USA backing or permission. So the Iraqis believe.
This however raises the great first puzzle! .
If Saddam was so useful, why then did USA take all the trouble and risks of war knowing very well that there were no WMD’s? .
Most Iraqis believe that the war was not waged for the goodness of Iraqis but to serve Israel but this contradicts the above mentioned also well held belief ! Could the neoconservatives with their many think-tank institutions be so naïve, stupid or misinformed as to think that democracy in Iraq would bring a pro-western regime and not a regime which is at least more friendly to Iran, truly anti-Israel and anti-western ? Or, were they merely aiming to destroy Iraq and create kayos in the region to serve their own selfish ends (what can these be??)? Did they intentionally mean to create a breeding ground for terrorists?(what for??) Do they intentionally work against the interests of USA??? .
What are they (the neoconservatives) and USA gov. up to? Could it be simply a huge miscalculation, which, with all the great suffering it brought, might also bring some good to Iraq at the end of a long tunnel?
I'm gonna go eat something delicious now.
much peace, lim.
