No Justice! No Peace!

Twenty months on from the US and British invasion of Iraq, occupation has taken its toll. Over 100,0000 Iraqis have been killed and many more wounded. Political repression is the order of the day.

Victory To Insurgent Iraq!

"Twenty months on from the US and British invasion of Iraq, occupation has taken its toll. Over 100,0000 Iraqis have been killed and many more wounded. Political repression is the order of the day. The US puppet Allawi regime has declared a state of emergancy, banned opposition newspapers, carried out thousands of arrests, and used torture against the Iraqi people. The Allawi regime have put into place an illegitimate constitution serving the interests of their US and British masters.

"Under these conditions, the Iraqi economy is in shambles. Many Iraqis lack water and electricty. Schools and hospitals have been closed, leaving Iraqis without essential services. Declining health, increasing homelessness, unemployment, and skyrocketing prices for basic necessities are the conditions faced by ever growing numbers of Iraqis. This needless human suffering is a consequence of the logic of US and British imperialism. The goals of the US and British imperialism in Iraq include:

"The US and the British are seeking to control Middle East oil supplies in order to slow the pace of their competitive decline as the EU integrates and China industrializes.

"US military in Iraq to threaten disobedient peoples in the area, including the Iranians, Syrians and the Palestinians.

"Privatization of the Iraqi economy including oil, water, electricity and all major industries. This impoverishment of the Iraqi people will enrich a handful of Western corporations.

"The war in Iraq is an unavoidable reality. The issue of "war or peace" is no longer a realistic or practical question. Instead, solidarity with those who are resisting US and British imperialism is the duty of all freedom loving people. Today insurgent Iraq is a central front in the struggle for social justice globally. Falluja, once a stronghold of resistance, is currently being decimated as an example to the Iraqi people. The US and British neocolonial project must be stopped - by any means necessary!"

The US used up 3/4 of it's smart bomb stocks and couldn't even keep Saddam's TV stations from broadcasting. And the whole world (not living in a fantasy) noticed. Now, they see the US stumbling around the chaos of it's own making.

Power is only power if you use it. And if you use it up foolishly, as America has under Bush 43, then so many oportunies open up for so many others who hate the American empire (democrap and republitrash, corperations, IApac, and other conected folks, banks IApac again, etc) keeping them subserviant.

After 30 years of struggle against "colonialists" our very own "insurgents" have succumbed to the might of the British Intelligence war which was waged against them, ultimately to decimate their organisation. The same sort of war that is being fought today in Iraq, but with few of the constraints that Northern Ireland enjoyed.

What sort of resistance do you suggest when you say "They must be stopped by any means" ?? Do you suggest armed struggle? Maybe a boycott of all British/American/Israeli goods? Do something instead of just spouting on about it and growing crusty dreads. Allahu Akbar! (I've given up on "tiocfaidh ar la").

Tar éis chaitihimh amach i ndiaidh na mbrilléise bualtrachta sciodartha seo thuas a léamh níl ach rud amháin le rá agam: loisceadh is dódh oraibh agus bhúr gcáirde.

Go n-éirí le Meiriceá na saoirse go fada buan agus nár dtaga lá bhúr leithéid choíche.

Níl ionaibh ach coireanna, mangairí drugaí agus cladhairí.

Bush abú, céad moladh is beannacht Dé le Meiricéa na Saoirse.

Nár thaga bhúr lá go huain na críche, is fad fán oraibh, a Chuckies gránna.
