Hazim Yılangöz membre de la famille Bayraktar-Çayırlılar, l’une des familles turkmènes les plus enracinées d’Irak, a été tué.
Agé de 54 ans et père de 8 enfants, Yılangöz a été attaqué par une personne dont l’identité n’est pas connue, devant chez lui dans les heures matinales.

Blessé grièvement au torse et à la jambe, Yılangöz est décédé sur la route lorsqu’il était acheminé à l’hôpital.

Lors des funérailles de Yılangöz, les attaques et attentats visant les Turkmène ont été condamnés.

Yavouz Efendi, une des autorités du front turkmène irakien, avait été assassiné il y a 3 jours à Mossoul.

An explosive secret letter that exposes how Tony Blair lied over the legality of the Iraq War can be revealed.

The Chilcot Inquiry into the war will interrogate the former Prime Minister over the devastating ‘smoking gun’ memo, which warned him in the starkest terms the war was illegal.

The Mail on Sunday can disclose that Attorney General Lord Goldsmith wrote the letter to Mr Blair in July 2002 – a full eight months before the war – telling him that deposing Saddam Hussein was a blatant breach of international law.

Triumph of the Turks

Turkey is the surprising beneficiary of U.S. misadventures in the Middle East.

By Owen Matthews and Christopher Dickey | NEWSWEEK 

Published Nov 28, 2009

From the magazine issue dated Dec 7, 2009

Archibald Wavell himself could scarcely have imagined how horribly accurate his prediction would prove to be. Having watched in dismay as the victorious European powers carved up the Ottoman Empire after World War I—”the war to end war”—the British officer commented that they had instead created “a peace to end peace.” And sure enough, the decades since have spawned a succession of colonial misrule, coups, revolutions, and an epidemic of jihadist violence. The U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 could be viewed as a last-ditch attempt by the world’s sole remaining superpower to impose order on the region. Instead, the net result was to create a power vacuum, leaving Iraq too weak to counterbalance its neighbors and threatening to destabilize the whole map.

Turkey, the old seat of Ottoman power, did its best to stay out of that fight, refusing even to let U.S. forces cross Turkish soil for the 2003 invasion. Still, it’s the Turks—not the Iranians, as many observers claim—who are now emerging as the war’s real winners. In economic terms Turkey is running neck and neck with Iran as Iraq’s biggest trading partner, even as most U.S. businesses sit helplessly on the sidelines. And in terms of regional influence, Turkey has no rival. The country’s stern-faced prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is working to consolidate that strength as he asserts Turkey’s independence in a part of the world long dominated by America. Next week he’s in Washington to meet with President Obama, but only a few weeks ago he stood shoulder to shoulder with his “good friend” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Tehran and defended Iran’s nuclear program.

The Iraq War ‘Inquiry’: ‘Revelations’? What revelations?

 “We spent a long time at dinner on IRAQ. It is clear that Bush is grateful for your support and has registered that you are getting flak. I said that you would not budge in your support for regime change but you had to manage a press, a Parliament and a public opinion that was very different than anything in the States. And you would not budge either in your insistence that, if we need pursued regime change, it must be very carefully done and produce the right result. Failure was not an option.” – David Manning (Blair’s policy advisor).[1]I read with amazement the ‘revelations’ concerning war criminal Tony Blair’s visit to Camp Crawford in March 2002 where Bush/Blair decided that ‘regime change’ was the order of the day. But there’s nothing new about these ‘revelations’, indeed I and many others reported this meeting literally years ago.

Irak : la IVe République sans De Gaulle au bout du tunnel

Un régime d’assemblée ingouvernable. J’ai assisté avant-hier à une intéressante conférence de la chercheuse Louloua al-Rashid sur l’Irak, dont les conclusions rejoignent largement celles de l’ancien diplomate, Denis Bauchard, de retour lui aussi de Bagdad (lire ici): à savoir que si la sécurité s’était améliorée (400 morts par mois désormais, contre 3.000 il y a deux ans), sur le plan politique, l’avenir reste sombre.

Faute de disposer d’un état fort s’appuyant sur de solides institutions, l’Irak s’enfonce au contraire dans «un système de gouvernement à la libanaise» : un confessionnalisme toujours puissant, avec des potentats locaux disposant de miliciens pour servir leurs desseins, et une corruption largement répandue entre responsables politiques. A moyen terme, aucun d’entre eux n’a intérêt à voir émerger un leader fort, qui mettrait fin à cette situation de rente.

Le système électoral, basé sur la proportionnelle, ne permet pas l’émergence d’une majorité de gouvernement homogène. Le premier ministre, Nouri al-Maliki, même réélu l’année prochaine, devra encore composer avec une coalition, qui ne le laissera pas gouverner, comme il l’entend. Bref, l’Irak d’aujourd’hui, c’est un peu la IVe république, mais sans le général de Gaulle au bout du tunnel ! Et sans jouer les Cassandre, il faudra encore une bonne dizaine d’années avant que l’Irak ne reparte du bon pied, reconnaisse la plupart des experts.

Pour Louloua al-Rashid, l’armée, à l’instar des autres institutions, obéit, ici, à un responsable kurde, là, au premier ministre chiite Nouri al-Maliki, mais elle n’apparaît pas encore comme un instrument fiable au service d’un Etat, capable d’exercer son autorité sur l’ensemble du territoire. Difficile dans ces conditions d’engager une coopération militaire avec l’armée irakienne, comme la France tente pourtant de le faire.

Mais au-delà des enseignements que Louloua al-Rashid tire de son récent séjour en Irak – et qui feront l’objet d’un rapport pour le compte de l’International Crisis Group je vous livre deux anecdotes qu’elle a recueillies à Bagdad et qui en disent long sur l’état d’esprit des dirigeants de l’ancienne Mésopotamie.

Sept ans bientôt après être arrivés dans le sillage des troupes américaines, nombre d’entre eux habitent toujours dans les maisons des ex cadres de la dictature baasiste, mais sans leurs femmes, restées en Jordanie, à Londres, ou ailleurs, bien loin du bourbier irakien. Elles ne sont toujours pas rentrées au pays. Sans doute parce qu’elles n’ont guère confiance dans son avenir. Cruel aveu d’échec !

D’autre part, ajoute Louloua al-Rashid, «souvent au cours de mes entretiens avec des responsables irakiens, ceux-ci interrompaient leurs conversations pour répondre à un appel téléphonique de Jordanie ou d’ailleurs». De quoi discutaient-ils ? De l’avenir de l’Irak ? Vous n’y pensez pas ! «Il s’agissait plutôt de négocier l’achat d’un immeuble, d’une maison ou bien alors de finaliser la signature d’un contrat de reconstruction avec une société étrangère».

Video:

Why do you kill, Zaid? (in German with English subtitles, video 10 minutes)”A story of a young Iraqi who became one of the Iraqi Resistance. The story reflects the suffering of a nation that resists the American occupation for independance & living with dignity. Dr. Juergen todenhoefer, a german litterateur, went to Iraq to shed the light on the suffering of Iraqi people under the American occupation and met with people from the Iraqi Resistance. He lived with them and learned about their lives.

 He met Zaid, the young guy who lost most of his family members, and then he decided to join the Iraqi Resistance. They’re mostly sunni. Dr. Jurgen shed the light on the truth of what’s happening in Iraq, horrible crimes are committed everyday by the US army forces so he can clarify to the world how different the western media is from the truth. Dr. Juergen wants to give the truth a chance and wants justice for the suffering of the Iraqi people.”
…………..
“The 10 theses from Jürgen Tödenhöfer’s book “Why do you kill, Zaid?” are an attempt to portray the world from the viewpoint of a Muslim for once. Jürgen Todenhöfer hopes that the following 10 theses will perhaps open a window onto another way of seeing the Muslim world – or at least prompt a fair discussion.

British Complicity in the Torture and Ill-treatment of Terror Suspects in Pakistan

Novembre 24, 2009

This 46-page report provides accounts from victims and their families in the cases of five UK citizens of Pakistani origin – Salahuddin Amin, Zeeshan Siddiqui, Rangzieb Ahmed, Rashid Rauf and a fifth individual who wishes to remain anonymous – tortured in Pakistan by Pakistani security agencies between 2004 and 2007. Human Rights Watch found that while there is no evidence of UK officials directly participating in torture, UK complicity is clear.

Afghanistan Contractors Outnumber Troops

Despite Surge in U.S. Deployments, More Civilians Are Posted in War Zone

source: August Cole,  Global Research

Even as U.S. troops surge to new highs in Afghanistan they are outnumbered by military contractors working alongside them, according to a Defense Department census due to be distributed to Congress — illustrating how hard it is for the U.S. to wean itself from the large numbers of war-zone contractors that proved controversial in Iraq.

Bremer Speaks on DNO and Galbraith

Posted by Reidar Visser on November 25, 2009

In its continuing coverage of the DNO/KRG/Galbraith nexus in Iraq, the Norwegian business daily Dagens Næringsliv has landed a rare interview with the ruler of Iraq in the CPA era from 2003 to 2004, Ambassador L. Paul Bremer. In the interview, published in the hard-copy of the paper on 20 and 21 November, Bremer reflects on Peter Galbraith’s many simultaneous roles in Iraq in 2004, and in particular comments on sovereignty issues related to the signing of DNO’s contract with the KRG.

Bremer – who to a considerable extent has been out of the limelight since he left Iraq and who informs DN that he is currently spending much time pursuing his favourite pastime of painting landscapes – dismisses Galbraith’s pursuits in Iraq as “unethical” and adds that he himself was personally subjected to a two-year ban on business activity in Iraq subsequent to his tenure at the CPA. This characterisation of Galbraith by Bremer is perhaps not terribly surprising given the well-known personal enmity between the two men, and many observers will probably also want to emphasise the multiple ethical questions that pertain to the CPA itself under Bremer’s own leadership and indeed his whole program of using ethno-sectarian quotas as the key for shaping institutions of government in the “new Iraq”. As far as ethics are concerned, what is now happening in the US mainstream media is actually a lot more interesting than what Bremer thinks about Galbraith: An increasing number of leading intellectual forums in the US that used to support Galbraith – including the mighty New York Review of Books – are now following the lead of the NYT in issuing various forms of apologies to their readers for having given space in their columns for Galbraith without at the same time providing full disclosure of his business involvement in Iraq. Conversely, his remaining support base seems to be growing distinctly rural in outlook, and now appears to be limited to angry letters in his defence printed in publications like the Rutland Herald and the Brattleboro Reformer, both based in his home state of Vermont.
