Why Zarqawi's Death Will Strengthen the Iraqi Resistance

A.K. Gupta | The death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi should be of small comfort to the Bush administration. Having cried victory on many previous occasions—from “Mission Accomplished, the capture of Saddam Hussein, and the killing of his sons to the “transfer of power,” the razing of Fallujah and three elections—the White House struck a more cautious note upon discussing the death of the “Al Qaeda in Iraq” leader.

President Bush said his demise offered a chance to “turn the tide of the struggle” in Iraq.

While perhaps it’s less bombastic than declaring the insurgency is “in the last throes,” it’s more wishful thinking.

Bombing Zarqawi into oblivion will not end the resistance in Iraq. In fact, it may do the opposite. more...  4 Comments

Al-Zarqawi and the ‘Superpower’

nano | All reports and profiles of Al-Zarqawi do not place him in the criminal genius category. Murdering thug and street crim maybe, but to evade the limitless resources of western agencies for two long years is out of the question unless of course the situation was managed to keep a population distracted, fearful, and compliant while precious resources were plundered and illegal invasions justified. more...  3 Comments

New Zealand joins Australia’s military occupation of East Timor

John Braddock | The New Zealand Labour government last month dispatched nearly 200 troops to support the Australian-led military occupation of East Timor. Underlining the close Australian and New Zealand collaboration in neo-colonial exercises throughout the region, the contingent includes soldiers who were deployed in the initial 1999 intervention in East Timor, some who had recently served in the Solomon Islands, and a group of military police just returned from Afghanistan.
Using social unrest and the fracturing of East Timor’s security forces as the pretext, the Australian government pressed Dili into issuing an “invitation” on May 24 and immediately began landing 1,300 troops as well as additional support staff and police. New Zealand troops were not far behind. The barely disguised purpose of the intervention is to effect a “regime change” in the impoverished statelet and tighten Canberra’s grip on oil and gas resources in the region. more...  0 Comments
