” Britain merged the Ottoman provinces Baghdad, Basra and Mosul into a new state of Iraq, inhabited by three different groups of people: Shi’ites, Sunnis and Kurds. Under British rule, the new Iraqis were subjected to more taxes than under Ottoman rule. Nationalist revolt rose against the new British rulers in 1920.
To crush the Iraqi national-liberation movement, Churchill, secretary of state for war, introduced new military tactics with massive bombing of villages as the original “shock and awe” doctrine, revived eight decades later by the US military. Churchill ordered the use of mustard gas, stating:
“I do not understand the squeamishness about the use of gas. I am strongly in favor of using poison gas against uncivilized tribes.” Source

British Colonialism and Repression in Iraq: Winston Churchill, as responsible cabinet minister in the early years, saw Iraq as an experiment in high-technology colonial control.

When Oil and Water Mix: … “One drop of oil,” said Georges Clemenceau, the Prime Minister of France in the second half of World War I, “is worth one drop of blood of our soldiers.” … … … One has to wonder how many more millions have to be slaughtered before the collective consciousness of humanity is stirred into action. Has the ongoing stench of the genocidal concoction obscured our compassion? Perhaps the fatal potion brings with it another message – shame? Or perhaps even a glimmer of hope that there is still time. Soraya Sepahpour Ulrich
I just came across the following classified document, by someone who must remained unidentified, as his revelations might put him in great danger. See yourself:
“Just imagine what the world would look like if, and only if EyeRun (Iran) has nuclear weapons.
First thing they would do is to send one missile to Hiroshima because Japan backed US sanctions against EyeRun. Just think of all them Toyotas destroyed.
Then they will move into Iraq and invade it. Poor Iraqis living under military rule of the EyeRunians. They don’t even care about their injured let alone the Iraqis.
They might even invade Vietnam just not to be behind in their race against us. Then Afghanistan and the rest of the world.
They will surly invade Israel and hand it over to those Palestinians. And these Palestinians will build a wall all through the country and check points and won’t let Israelis breath a word about their right to live in their own country.
They will do all they can to change the glob into one small village. Just imagine running into AhmadiNejad on your way to work every morning.
Imagine all the people living under EyeRunian rule. You may say I am a dreamer but, I am not the only one. You can join us if you like.
WHAT TO DO?
1- Pave the way for Bush’s army to attack EyeRun. Ask your representatives to help him.
2- Join the peace parades and convince people to join the army in the name of peace.
3- Use Greece experience in invading EyeRun by Alexander the Great. We can use their intelligence reports and satellite pictures taken before their attack.
Don’t let another Sadam be born with all those weapons of mass destruction. (you can ask for details about this from Tony the Blair).
You don’t believe me? Just look at this picture from Tehran. All men here are wearing mustaches just like Sadam and are all potential dictators to be. And what you will have millions of Sadams on your hand giving a million dollars for each to be hunted down.
See you in Tehran Conference (the second) after our peaceful war is over.”
