A dirty war rages on behind Democracy’s Iron Curtain
Jamil was a mere 17 years old when the invaders rolled in their NATO weaponry into the streets of Baghdad. Then, he was looking forward to enroll into a next year university program to pursue economics; however, the invasion had changed his luck for good. Today Jamil – origin of Abu Ghraib, is part of what is called the Elite force. A team which was established by Petraeus when he finally gave in to the Saddamist resistance back in 2007 - a time when the US junta was being constantly crushed in between an Iranian hammer and a Saddamist anvil, during the totalitarian regime of Bush in Iraq.
Petraeus – who seemed to be the best thing that happened to the Baathists since the invasion of Kuwait, had laid the ground to the most brutal Delta Force that Iraq has ever witnessed since those days of the Elite forces of the old Iraqi army (who fought horrific wars against the Kurds in Kurdistan, back in the 70s.) From a literary point of view, these young empowered men can be drawn as example in parallel line to those rabid dogs, which were trained by the pigs in the classics book “the Animal Farm”.
Jamil, who is found of his latest Ford Mustang, is a sworn in, hard core freedom fighter - like the rest of his team members, against the lurching evil forces of the Iranians in Iraq. Jamil’s primary goal is to liberate Iraq from the influence of the Iranians everywhere. He thinks that Iranians do not represent the true spirit of the Iraqi resistance against the US, because the US is no longer considered an enemy. Conversely, his real enemy is what he calls “Al Marjiya” (the highest authority of the Shiites in Iraq) which was then the core enemy of Saddam – God bless his soul!, as Jamil says. He, as he reiterates, undoubtedly voted for Eyad Alawi (a Shiite by born only). When a friend asked Jamil about the Takfiris (so called Al Qaeda) Jamil’s laughed at their present situation in Iraq and said these people can be beaten any time and when it is necessary!!
Jamil constantly brags of his heroic operations in Al Thawra city (Sadr city), Basrah and rouge other places in Baghdad. He says the current madness in the security stems from the fact that Iran is trying to generate a chaos until it can form its own backed government. However, Jamil and his team members had, also, served Al Maliki’s government several times when it was required, which demonstrates the schizophrenic malaise of Iraq’s current affair. From the little time one spends with Jamil one realizes that Iraq will soon be prevailed by hire to kill gangsters- whether they are driven by ideology or sheer profit. These gangsters will be there to heed for calls of death when it is required.
When we look at the sinister and vile Iranian role In Iraq, which even turned the US junta into good guys and the Saddamists into freedom fighters, one cannot stop wondering if there are any decent factions or group of people left out there to fight the noble cause of the true Iraqi people. When I think of Eyad Alawi – the most politically bankrupt Arabic politician in the history of Iraq, and how he has been entrenched in a stooge role to rule Iraq with one of the slimmest margins lead ever realized by voting outcome, I keep on wondering just for how long the Iraqis will be taken on a circus ride?
Looking at it with total detachment, it does seem that the ugly Mullas of Iran are the only anti-US junta forces that have left in the arena, and while the comedy of this tragedy lingers on at its full weight, I cry out loud: who will ever hear those Iraqi widows sobs, while the entire government is being locked in the greens zone behind Democracy’s iron curtain?!
