First of all I do apologize in advance for this post. It will be more of a thinking out loud than a proper article with a point to make.
It is funny I posted a piece just a few days ago about Zarqawi. It was the last post before this one. Feel free to check it out. I just heard on the news that he has been killed. A few days after I noticed how he has become useless to the media and the US mission. Has there been too many questions regarding him being a fictisous character?
I think I am really getting the hang of reading politics of the media or through the media. It is amazing how much you can find out just by following the news only from a "birdseye view" if you will.
It is like reading the news a month or so before Hariri was assasinated. Syria was all over the news from supporting the Iraqi insurgency to Lebanon and Hizbollah.
I wonder what this means? Does it mean that the US genuinly wants to secure Iraq? I believe that not until 2008 will Iraq see peace. So I have to wonder why are we hearing about this now?
Of course listening to Bush and Blair they imply clearly that things will not change. Maybe all this means is that they were losing support, and needed a boost to keep public pressure under control?
I also have to wonder about timings. Timing is crucial in understanding world politics and what is really going on. Firs the Canadian terror plot. Now a sign of success agains the "War on Terror". I can certainly foresee that a coillision of Western Puppet Nations (US , Britain and now Canada thanks to the new Conservative Government) will only escalate matters in the short coming future. Canada is already taking many steps in that direction. Unless the Canadian people stop Harper and his Right Wing staunch US Allies they will be dragging their country into a conflict they don't need to be part of.
However with NDP parliment members using ignorant phrases like "They hate our freedom"or if Candians allow themsleves to get brain washed by the media, then Canada will wake up one day not realizing that they have become just like their neighbour to the south. Electing an official who has brought his country no benifet. An official who has lied to his country over and over only to go into one war after another. What do the Americans really gain from a war that serves Israel? Why should a mother living in Ohio send her only son to die for a country like Israel?
