Iraq is for all the marbles

Pepe Escobar | "Any "leftest" committed to defeating the US/UK imperial venture in Iraq should read read the article below. Though it is a little dated now, it tells us clearly about the divide and rule plan neocons are undertaking in that hapless land. But make no mistake, this one is for all the marbles. Like time at the speed of light, "it would have a stop." If the invaders are foiled in their plan to steal the wealth of Iraq, it will be imperialism that will "have a stop."

If you truely want a "new world," no effort to defeat the occupation of Iraq can be sparred." more...  0 Comments
