Ideas & Options for U.S.-Iraq Policy

Isaiah 18:4 reads "For so the Lord said to me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest"

It isn't simple for a Christian of the United States to comment about administration policy regarding Iraq from either a prophetic, eschatological nor a secular, political point of view. On the one hand God has pre-determined human history yet people have free will to choose to conform their fate to the pre-destined. Much as bees can fly anyplace they 'choose' but invariably move to the nectar and flowers of destiny, human original sin and disregard for the truth and will of God leads to conflict, strife and confusion. Muslim's are lost without the saving grace of Jesus Christ while the House of Jacob awaits God's final reconciliation of a remnant unto Himself.

American Christians may wonder of the present role of Iraq in Bible prophecy, and if the administration is able to use Feith based policy to shape events in Iraq consistent to the Biblical guidelines if such exist if the administration interpretation of the road map to the second coming of Christ is correct, select a Mahdi for Prime Minister or separate conflict of interests between corporatism, contract and politics as readily as oil and water from a contaminated pipeline? Can administration confusion or perfidy regarding Bible prophecy, Calvin's five points and the time-line of teleology be transcended without national grief pursuant blundering into serving as a prophetic bad actor in Mesopotamia, or exploitation of misinterpreted prophecy for purely financial gain and greed by select corporatist neo-cons with a belief that globalism and corporatism are good for themselves? American Iraqi policy can be considered from many points of view of course, and following I will consider some of the most 'material' and readiness to change aspects, following a couple more verses from Isaiah about Mesopotamia and the nations...

13-9 "Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; an he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it."
13-11 "And I shall punish the world for their evil; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtyness of the terrible."
13-15"Every one that is found shall be thrust through, and every one that is joined to them shall fall by the sword."

These prophetic 'sound bites' of Isaiah are fascinating with a triplex space-time continuum reference possible in relation to Isaiah's time, a future time and times and a half regarding Jesus Christ and the future history of the Jewish people. Southern Mesopotamia may even become a wilderness area and refuge for endangered species it seems.
Perhaps the best application right now for the prophetic criterion of Isaiah is simply for the willing to be saved spiritually by the Son of God the Lord Jesus Christ and for the administration to apply Christian kindness principles pragmatically to its macro-political Iraq policy so far as possible reducing it's accentuated policy prioritization of future corporate oil profits.

Another couple of verses from Isaiah...

17-11 "In that day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the morning shalt thou make the seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and desperate sorrow."
17-12 " Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
17-13 "The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters; but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind."

If critics of the U.S. Administration's approach to rebuilding a peaceful Iraqi infrastructure following the April 2003 Iraq war offered other than existential retreat options without recognition of possible empirical political consequences it might be easier to discover a viable political way to satisfy U.S. and Iraqi interests together. Iraq has many trans-national, regional interests that need to be addressed simultaneously with internal stabilization issues not unlike the way a human cell has simultaneously evolving internal and externally oriented components. Al Qae'da might be thought of as an HIV virus entering Iraq's cell border membrane to place explosive wrong R.N.A.. instructions in the government reconstruction D.N.A. 'ladder' perhaps in the interest of external oil consuming organisms.

The land by the rivers isn't readily amenable to formation of an insular monocultural nation unaffected by extra-territorial political interests. Many Iraqis live in Iran, or have lived in Iran for instance, while many Kurds and Sunni have lived elsewhere as well for a variety of reasons, and pipelines from Iraq as well as commercial highways travel in all directions.

Moderation isn't by any means necessarily a vice or virtue in relation to any given political circumstance but is one of several policy directions. It is not always possible to arrive at the end of a political journey immediately without going through intermediate stages, neither is it either possible always to know in advance the course to the destination, but course corrections may be needed as the journey's political landscape unfolds; adaptability is important in foreign relations even while keeping mission discipline. Iraqis may need to complete phases of their walk through Mesopotamian reorganization alone when the regions of Iraq can develop enough security to go forward without stumbling immediately into civil war. The U.S.A. may need to be satisfied that they have given the people of Iraq a reasonable opportunity to choose their own fate for-themselves so far as God allows.

A military force reduction and relocation policy of moderation could develop with American military forces in Iraq reduced to 70,000 soldiers and relocated along the boundaries of Shi'a Sunni and Kurdish regions, Baghdad and the Iraqi borders. A sectarian Iraq may already be forming and abandonment of Iraq's existing reconstruction to the forces of terrorism by immediate complete abandonment would perhaps create not only a civil war, but sectarian wars regionally as well as Iranian-Gulf States-Saudi wars and a terrorist insurgence in Saudi Arabia.
Sectarianist regionalization of Iraq may or may not lead to democratic liberalization. The people of Iraq eventually must choose for themselves what relationship to or degree of Muslim clerical influence in government they will have. The international should community support their choices and trust that an actual liberation created by civilized values will draw the people of Iraq away from reliance on hopefully outmoded tools of civil repression. Global corporatism that attacks democracy surreptitiously is an increasing danger to the west as well as a possibly disingenuous advocate for democratic reform in Iraq today.

Plainly the history of U.S. reconstruction policy in Iraq entails an element of ineffective trial by error. Military deployments have sometimes been used in substitute for political intelligence and policy design by the U.S. administration without accomplishing general objectives. Military logic requires, like any valid syllogism, for validity that the premises if valid must equal the conclusion. U.S. military logic in the 2003 war was sound enough to accomplish the victory, what was absent was any sort of logical and valid premise corresponding to empirical political reality for reconstructing Iraq politically.

The long-term deployment of the U.S. military in Iraq in substitution for more intelligent and nuanced U.S. Iraqi political interactions and planning presents a military logic posture unsuitably designed for production of a political victory. Complex terrorist, sectarian, economic, global oil and alternate energy issues, disparate regional political systems and ethnic issues do not present themselves directly or obviously to a plain military logic solution wherein military force suitably applied will produce a 'victory' accomplishing the conclusion postulated. The United States has no interest in the totalization of power such as an occupying Empire presents in which universal military logic is a valid tool, and in which human rights of 'subjects' are of no concern; that criterion is hopefully a dead historical oddity left with buried empires.

The U.S. military is given the objective of replacing an Iraqi Army and intelligence service from the former regime of Saddam Hussein to maintain social order until a new Iraqi, unified government and it's Army and police forces is made to govern the people that are also aggrieved in part by the continuing U.S. military presence. With the low financial cost of terrorism and number of new volunteer terrorists available the standard military logic calculation for winning is at the least unclear, if not improbable. An intifada of volunteer terrorism with remote financial sponsors could go on for decades in theory that the U.S. military as a national police might be unable to contain. Unlike many of the standard anti-insurgence books of the past designed to counter a native insurgence supported by a percent of the people locally the Iraqi crisis has several streams of terrorist running into the region with different targets, different goals, different financing and a variety of munitions sources. Standard counter-insurgence operations of a military nature will have reduced effectiveness in such an environment; political adaptations to isolate and control terrorism-- Iraqi firewalls with sectarian Iraqi fire-guard personnel may be a reasonable adaptation to U.S. support policy for the central government of Iraq.

Opposition to the U.S. occupation force arises from a number of points, and the opportunity for enemies of the United States to harm America financially with great cost efficiency in Iraq is another factor promoting global insurgence localized in Iraq. Americans are borrowing and spending about 20 billion dollars per month in Iraq while terrorists perhaps spend a million or two.

The costs to the United States of the prosecution of peace in Iraq are tremendous reaching towards a half trillion dollars and up. The opportunity costs to diverted infrastructure development in the United States are also substantial, and one wonders if the corporatist-socialist pig-vermin elite in D.C. are aware of the costs since they have a globalist point of view economically. The corporatist-socialist axis of deficit spending and civil repression advocates flooding the nation with cheap Mexican migrants in order to enrich the corporatist's profits while social services for the immigrants are added onto the public debt. Taxpayers such as myself working in free enterprise disadvantaged house repainting and writing may earn just 6100 dollars a year and receive a 950 dollar tax bill with federal demands for immediate payment of 531 dollars plus interest, and that recovering in a year from a separated shoulder and journey's through Alaskan forests in deep snow to avoid starvation. The federal government supports a corporatist no net tax payment ,no bid contract redistribution of wealth to globalists with corporate broadcast media disarming U.S. mass political and civil intelligence through propaganda. The D.C. demons with their socialist alter-ego will simply gut the independence of the United States and leave a wreck for future generations if given a chance. The globalist matrix is the essential transcending reality over U.S. nationalism. It does not require victory of peace in Iraq either as it is an ongoing profitable enterprise for the right corporate connections, and indignant locals that are Muslims or whatever are simply untrained consumer-proles that can be corrected through superior and eventual military force. Such idiot lack of reasoning in government permits extremist Islamist reactionaries greater opportunity to foment terror against such a hapless foe. The United States as a nation picks up the tab for global corporate perfidy overmuch. While in the cold war era corporations were the counter-example to socialist-Leninist Marxism of the Soviet Union's dull economic monolith in the post cold war era corporatism has run amok without regard for the democracy and American national self-interest that supported it largely.

Of 450,000 tons of military weapons and explosives in Iraq following the 2003 war more than 200,000 tons remain hidden awaiting use by resistance and criminal gangs it has been written (see Allawi's 'The Occupation of Iraq'). Terrorists arriving from Saudi Arabia or elsewhere may bring 50,000 dollars (see Allawi's book) or more with them to purchase influence with the money supplied by oil wealthy Saudi radical Islamists. American dependence on fossil fuels fights against their own strategic regional interests in supporting a Shi'a majority for democracy in Iraq that seem to prefer an Islamist government after bi-lateral terrorist arm-twisting, that is opposed by a Sunni minority used to supplying a totalitarian government over the Shi'a, and an external Saudi proletariat of oil wealth committed to the destruction of the emergent Shi'a dominated Iraqi central government. The United States in the mean time has bungled its rebuilding policy for Iraq in a variety of ways.

If the Shi'a and Shi'a militias patrol their own areas and form their own security nets at least peace in that region should develop, and Sunnis patrolling Sunni areas might be able to defeat the terrorists themselves, and the Kurds similarly while all three groups participate in a unified government in Baghdad.

American military forces could relocate to new border security regional areas with better security for themselves, and help prevent sectarian terrorists from travelling to opposite sectarian areas to perpetrate suicide bombings.

Even the Iraqi police force has tended to be divided along sectarian lines, while revenge killing of former Bathists has occurred by Shi'a militias affiliated with the police. If one combined the Bloods, Crips and Mexican Mafia or Lunatics into one police force in Los Angeles maybe a certain degree of inter-police force killings would develop as the rival gangs vied for control, and as they purged rival turf while perpetrating revenge killings. If Cholos or the tattoo cult from beyond financed heavily by Venezuelan oil money or Columbian drug cartels breezed in to blow themselves up and splatter innocent gang dominated civilians all over the streets of Los Angeles to complicate political stabilization perhaps it would take some time for the new police force to develop a unified character...but in time the Top Dog would emerge after sufficient bloodbaths to consolidate 'the boys' under his aegis quite probably. The Iraq security situation may deserve an equally optimistic formulation for stability soon.

U.S. interests do exist in both a peaceful Iraq and a reduced military presence in Iraq rather than either troop increases or sudden withdrawals something like removing primary building supports rather than a removal of scaffolding.

U.S. congressional votarees of complete, sudden withdrawal should formulate leadership not upon poll numbers by an uniformed electorate but instead educate the electorate about the circumstances of deployment, conditions of occupation, consequences of remaining or departing and options available to creatively and meaningfully accomplish American policy objectives in a moral and democratic paradigm.

American Iraqi policy hasn't been much subtle and nuanced but instead trended toward the pursuit of a transference of idealized visions that would not actualize perhaps even in the increasingly corporatist dominated U.S.A. Speeches and goals with timetables that work more for abstracted from Iraqi pragmatism administration planners trained in think tanks are countered by Democrat Party absinthe-forgetfulness planks seeking a sort of existential departure from Iraq without American consequences at the pump-their other preferred point of contact for reality beside reality t.v. American Idol etc; one can just drunk drive off a bridge and swim away from the mess anytime to sober up and get on with things properly.

Policy development in the administration does not progress much over time. The G.W. Bush inherited a fine military that it spent in Iraq and Afghanistan and hasn't had anything else that worked in the last 6 years of its own innovation. Iraq peace reconstruction efforts have been notably unimaginative and misguided, insensitive and retarded while corruption was allowed to flourish in Iraq and in the contracts let to favorite corporations. It is still possible to conclude the American Iraqi involvement in a satisfactory way to all beside the terrorists of Saudi Arabia and other Sunni countries perhaps, by following a phased redeployment and reduction of U.S. occupation forces in support of increasing regional security of Iraq's major sectarian regions.

Simultaneously with sectarian autonomy and self-governance, control of transsectarian terrorism with border security should be structured. Relocation and concentration of U.S. military forces in better defensible areas of sectarian refereeing security control and oil field pipeline protection could structure better, temporal implementation of Iraqi security measures.

Select infrastructure and energy production decentralization through independent energy producing home solar panels, construction of security and recreational canals in Baghdad and other sharply conflicting sectarian areas, manufacture of electric toilets with the Incinolet company as contractor consultants for the governments of Iraq and other individual enabling technologies of decentralization and environmentalism should be advanced.

Financial and political empowerment of the people of Iraq by transfer to private, individual citizens equal ownership shares of the oil fields of Iraq presently owned publicly by the government should develop. The U.S. Congress should pass a resolution urging that action and also create a U.S. Home power production bill and a no taxes on pure electric car sales bill.

With all the citizens of Iraq as personal equal stock owners of Iraq's oil any terrorists destroying oil infrastructure would be opposed by the overwhelming majority of the people in all likelihood. The Iraqi oil stock should not be available for sale to anyone for ten years after date of issuance.

The United States would perhaps save trillions of dollars if the people of Iraq owned their own oil and a stable, peaceful, non-belligerent society existed because of the stabilization of the cost of oil, reduced need for U.S. military costs in the future and so forth. A new, bigger middle east conflict that shuts down most middle east oil production would raise the price of oil above 200 dollars a barrel with global shortages besides.Americans would need to borrow money from Russia to finance the government deficit spending instead of from China, India and Japan as at present.

Another alternative goal for some anti-democracy planners is to coerce the majority Shi'a of Iraq in some way into another Sunni dominated tyranny and continue an otherwise royal dominated Gulf and Saudi Arabian oil production array with Wahabists and Salafists radicalizing Muslims 'from the right'.

Most terrorism against U.S. targets internationally have been from the Sunni sect, while Shi'a terrorism tends to be more local. It was Iranian revolution against an imperial government that broke the former block of royals supplying oil to America after the nationalization of Arab oil field contrived by Qaddafi. Corporatists seem to like royal governments quite a lot as the 'consumers' have little to do besides purchase as the government deems it proper. The oil producing aspects of the U.S. military-industrial complex have never forgiven the Shi'a for deposing royal oil suppliers, and the U.S. federal tendency to advance crude oil as the primary and decisive American value in middle east foreign political relations has matured as a frequently contradicting policy in regard to actual American interests of national security.

American economic interests have also suffered as the preference to rely upon oil and Sunni royalty into the 3rd millennium have overshadowed transition to alternate, non-trade deficit, environmentally benign fuel infrastructures. A retarded American national economy flanked by corporatist interests in a number of ways fails to trust and develop democracy, continuing national independence and environmentalism for itself and lapses into the short-term profit agenda of corporations without concern for national sustainability or civil rights even seeking to flood in millions of cheap laborers to transform the U.S.A. into a sort of synthetic Hapsburg's peonized empire under unified globalist-corporatist socialist rule balancing out the mass billions of poorer continental peons of China India and Latin America. Quick corporate profits are the transforming, paramount criterion of emergent American politics, with C.E.O.'s of top corporations averaging 8 million dollars a year in compensation for globalizing, outsourcing and subverting the United State's interests politically.

A brighter and more sensitive administration than that of President Bush might have applied a plethora of alternative and independent home power solutions to Iraq's issues of criminal gangs, black markets, broken energy infrastructures, vulnerable centralization of transmission lines and so forth. The people of Iraq were waiting for real improvements immediately in the sweltering heat, for their broken sewers spewing filth in Sadr City to dry up and the affluent excretions to become contained with perhaps work for the 70% unemployed; the administration foisted top-down dysfunctional government centralization through corrupt foreign contractors and corrupt administrators through a trim line of terrorists creating a mockery of a trickle down structure from an internally fractured 'government' of Iraq without an Army, police or intelligence corps. Death squad militias formed for civil defense in Sadr City in the absence presiding legal authority.

Though Iraq now has a very challenged sovereign government it isn't too late to redeploy and reduce American military forces in Iraq coordinated with intelligent, immediate quality of life bettering engineering projects. If the administration does not support the actual conditions for popular rule in Iraq with peace...even if they do not like the Shi'a because of hate of non-royal oil sales in Iran and concern that Mr. Sadr of Sadr City might wear a starched turban into political office becoming more powerful than a Rosie O'Donnel with death squads.

As a long range scenario a tripartite Iraq with a weak central government in Baghdad may be less harmful than a variety of other middle east conflict scenarios or a perennial 20 billion a month budget for U.S. soldiers to wander in Sunni or Shi'a houses in search of terrorists that maybe won't go away until no one will loan the U.S.A. any more billions to keep them in Iraq. A weakened U.S.A. financially that also redistributes its wealth to the middle east at the pump might be a Wahabist's economic dream come true.

Ali Allawi's book of December 2006 'The Occupation of Iraq; Winning the War; Losing the Peace' provided a substantial brief for individuals interested in the history of Iraq since circa 2000-2006, and should be read by members of congress interested in formulating informed opinions about U.S. Iraq policy.

Corporatist/American Iraq Tactical Errors

American strategy in Iraq for several years has been incomplete and of a patchwork composition to many outside observers. Is the policy of the Bush administration actually as ineffective a it seems and simply a patchwork effort of throwing truck loads of borrowed money at the problem such as followed the incompetent civil defense planing and response to the levees of New Orleans and Hurricane Katrina? Is it possible that some larger grand weltanshaung (world view) motivates the neo-con shaped Bush II policy that may be fulfilled by a Bush III administration or a Clinton II administration? Let's consider a few basic points of U.S. middle east policy during and following the cold war's end.

In taking the dialectically opposite side of communism the U.S.A. committed itself to a global war of capitalism versus communist economics and in so doing capitalist business methods became enshrined as an absolute good replacing democracy. Democracy for a time was subordinated to capitalist leadership in a global war for survival to become the leader of the New World Order. The world's politics were perceived as essentially a contest between the political powers of two European conceived social philosophies of Marx and Smith. Other demographic and environmental issues of greater absolute importance perhaps were subordinated and aligned with the dominant higher level issues. Environmental conservation for instance might be considered to be a socialist activity, and birth control a capitalist or communist policy variously as local needs for dissimulation deemed appropriate politically. The issues of the Muslim world combined with several other social and environmental challenges also were set aside as of secondary value. With the end of the cold war the occultation of the secondary issues ended, while the success of global capitalism surged ahead as the content of a New World Order; one in effect without a willing political base and advocated from the top by an elite ad hoc network of greed driven businessmen without any real feeling for governing. Without digressing here to describe how corporatism grew through the capitalist economic network to displace democracy in the United States and worked toward minimizing all free enterprise activities unsubordinated to rent paying to corporations I can directly move toward the corporatist Bush II administration policy failures in restructuring civil Iraq following the war of 2003.

Primarily the Bush II planning was of a corporatist New World Order nature with Iraq as a phenomenal oil source. The middle east since the 1950's has been for the United States a place where foreign policy moved to support any oil supplying non-belligerent government regardless of its relationship with the citizens of that nation. With that being the long-term amoral, unprincipled policy in effect of the U.S. Government foreign terrorist organizations and dissidents came to recognize the intrinsic perfidious nature of U.S. foreign policy in the region learning distrust of the U.S.A. Israel to a certain extent shared an unwise over association with globalism rather than simply expressing an identity as just a plain nation fighting for survival democratically against a sea of adverse peoples with a history of hate burning behind their eyes.

The corporatist political philosophy is essentially of contempt for government and for democratic government. Corporatists associate government with socialism necessarily as pure profits without social concern for 'externalities' is vital for the bottom line of many business budgets. Corporatists are completely incompetent and comprehending political philosophy and the right role of government and if given the opportunity to afford to buy elections with the assistance of their corporate owned broadcast media propagandizing will redistribute public money to favorite corporations as fast as possible. KBR, Halliburton, Bechtel and other corporations received a lot of taxpayer money yet Iraqi's saw little of it.

Fundamentally the Bush II administration entirely trashed the rebuilding effort in Iraq after the end of war in 2003 because of corporatist basic philosohic diversions away from a more sensitive rational democratic approach of construction and contracting priorities. The corporatist agneda of Iraq spending became something lik the telemarketing company hired to solicit funds for a charity that keeps 90% for itself and sends 10% of contributions on to the charity to help the poor folk reluctantly. Corporatists fundamentally believe that they are the personification of moral and political rightness on Earth and that nothing else need be said or thought about it. Dissent or diversion of resources away from corporate profits would be socialist or communist under some camoflage perhaps it has been decided.

In Alaska a recent radio ad by the Kennsington Mining Corporation attacks a small local conservation group for winning a lawsuit to prevent the mining company from dumping vast tonnage of mine waste products in a pristine alpine lake that probably discharges into a fiord eventually. The Kennsington then blames the environmentalist for not allowing an environmental health destroying road to be built along Lynn Canal to Haines from Juneau. The Kennsington would prefer that a road to destroy America's last best wilderness be constructed perhaps to reduce the costs of it's mining operation about halfway up the proposed route. For corporatists no other issues exist except pure profit...not destroying the last habitats for wildlife such as whales, grizzly bear, wild salmon and so forth...nothing at all except the prospect of gold. In Iraq black gold is at the bottom of the stack of reason for conflict...Suadi oil, Iraqi Oil, Dubain and U.A.E. oil-not only for the corporatists but for the royal rulers and their supportive clerics of the Sunni or Shi'a as well. Each much maneuver to control the land and the oil beneath even if war and death, anathema and repression is the cost. One hopes that U.S. female will at least comply with local proscriptions against baring the naked face to savage male desert tribes and instead wear fake beards, raspberry beret's and cheap sunglasses to conceal their most prosperous beauty until return to more decadent regions of the world.

Though the Bush administration might talk democracy for political propaganda purposes it has little regard for it. Ali Allawi's 2006 book 'The Occupation of Iraq; Winning the War, Losing the Peace' contains background on the completely ineffective Bush II allocation of resources in post-war Iraq.

One may wonder if 'the war' in Iraq is really 'lost' today and if it can yet be salvaged unto peace. Some claim that as many as 650,000 Iraqis have perished since 2003 because of sectarian and other terrorist violence. If the United States suddenly withdrew it's military forces would the number of deaths be reduced, or would it increase?

Congressman Murtha says publicly that Americans want to bring all the troops home now, but is he right and what would the consequences be of that? U.S. politicians seldom ask what the consequences of their actions would be any more. President Bush II failed to consider the consequences of winning the Iraq war of 2003 enough to consider what might happen though federal intelligent reports existed that forecast the chaos it was later revealed. What would the consequences of congressman Murtha's fight to flight plan be if implemented, or does it matter to the socialist opposition of the corporatists equally as little as the consequences of winning the 2003 war?

Ali Allawi's book moves the public understanding considerably beyond the paradigm of Fouad Ajami's pre-1991 Gulf War book 'The Republic of Fear; inside Saddam Hussein's Iraq' in a useful timeliness.

It is possible to have a better understanding of the position of the Shi'a of Iraq and why they seek their own militias in case the government falls; of why the Saudi Arabians seek the destruction of any Shi'a Government in Iraq; of the possibility that in Iraq the populace is presently sorting itself out through bloody violence into a three part confederalist nation with the Sunni on the west bank of the Tigris in Baghdad, the Shi'a and Sadrists in Sadr City in East Baghdad and the Kurds and President Talibani formerly of the P.U.K. up north in Kurdistan. Not only are ethnic survivals at issue in Iraq for the people of the area, fundamental long term historical balances are again shifting because of the American intervention in 2003, and the Bush II administration blinded by its corporatist worldview whereby the 'locals' don't matter much but are indignant consumers or non-conformists to globalist corporatism hasn't expressed a competence to willingness to comprehend a paradigm toward political stabilization of Iraq other than dump more military forces into Iraq, quite them all down and then the oil contracts can be signed for global oil companies. Presently Iraq produces only a fraction of it's oil potential because of the civil conflict.

The United States relying upon oil for auto fuel instead of home-produced electricity for electric cars also relies on Sunni Arabs of Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf for oil, and the corporatists profit handsomely from the dependence f the U.S. on oil working fundamentally against U.S. democratic interests. To corporatists all independence and democratic dissent is leftist and socialist. Socialists on the left and corporatists on the right preclude the political concept of a democracy pursuing its rational self-interests in public policy with a simultaneously somewhat laissez faire attitude toward capitalism. Americana cannot be liberated from corporatism sufficient to liberate themselves from oil consumption beyond lubricant and plastic production as a consequence.

Reliance on Sunni middle-eastern oil and abstract devaluing of Muslim's as recalcitrant consumers and global corporate employees creates a general western incompetence at political intervention and interaction with the actual political factors and peoples of Iraq and the middle east. Yes in time some of these people given political freedom and prosperity might on their own choose to take up more western values or even realize that Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal salvation with God, but force will not do it. Corporatist flush with a cold war victory over a transitional Russian people not really unwilling entirely to join the west believe that the world is now their oyster with a bit of hubris cutting off themselves from their own origins in western democracy and liberation during the era of the reformation, enlightenment and industrial revolution. In the middle east and Mesopotamia these western concerns are not necessarily shared while survival day to day has a more pragmatic drawing of attention. The political facts of Iraq do matter to all of these people and finding a suitable combination or alignment of the pieces politically in Iraq that is satisfactory to all the people that also includes a structure that will not be inimical to U.S. security would be a challenging enough activity if Americans could even be sure that the administration had anything other than a corporatist goal of homogenizing the people of Iraq under a friendly central government that will sell oil to corporatist interests keeping the U.S.A. addicted to gross crude oil consumption and borrowed funds to pay for the federal debt. The people of the United States have even begun to pay the interest on the hundreds of billions squandered in Iraq during the incompetent nation rebuilding fiasco (read A. Allawi's book 'The Occupation of Iraq').

One may wonder if Iran would have sought to build nuclear weapons faster if Saddam Hussein had remained in power or if Israel would have destroyed the Iranian nuclear plants producing material to wipe out Israel presently as the President of Iran Aminidinijab seems to express- ('Israel will be destroyed soon'). One wonders if the rhetoric from Iran is stimulated by the Bush II incompetence in rebuilding Iraq and is fueled by the Bush II talks recently with a wheel on the 'axis of evil' to such an effect that Iran believes the Bush II administration cannot stand aside and green light the destruction of all Iranian nuclear plants and Presidential palaces as the repercussions in Iraq would be too much.

It must seem to those that have not read recent historical material on Iraq or privileged enough to learn what the Bush II Iraq policy presently is beside 'fighting a war on terror' that is somewhat overly broad and generic that U.S. policy is mysteriously shrouded in corporatist goals of oil and that under 200 dollars a barrel...Americans just wouldn't pay more than that and the Russian government would be rolling in money if a middle east general war breaks out while the world corporatist economy will go into a depression including China with the possibilities for mass military movements. One of the disadvantages of globalist corporate unprincipled profit policy is that a certain vulnerable house of cards structuring is created.

American tactics in Iraq during the reconstruction would always have been better with a non-corporatist approach such as building security and fishing canals in Baghdad, privatizing oil field ownership equally amidst all Iraqi citizens in one corporation and Iraq elections to the board of that corporation would be very meaningful. Because the people own the oil privately corporatism is narrowly avoided. Corporatists don't wish to avoid ownership of the oil by the government as in Alaska with sales to global corporations (if Alaska sub-surface rights are given to property owners on former state land the land reverts to federal control). Corporatism and socialism are dialectically evolving forces as two-sides of one leaf growing to global dictatorship over a proletariat. Because the fundamental corporatist governing mechanism is non-existent to irrational force the results in American foreign policy such as in Iraq are messy...so how to get these Iraq's to live together peacefully may be enough of a challenge for the people of the United States to afford, Americans will be left with the corporate oppressor class themselves every minute of every day for decades.

The Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia have declared the Shi'a anathema in effect. Shi'a have never before ruled a middle east Arabian nation and the Sunni royalty don't want to have one start now. Saudi supplies more than 50% of foreign terrorists to Iraq and perhaps a lot of dollars. If the people of Iraq are given the oil equally as citizens then no one will be cheated, and Sunnis of Anbar province and the west bank of Baghdad can go there own way as a confederal autonomous province as may the Shi'a of the east bank and south and the Kurds of the North. Perhaps the Sunni of the west will want to join with Jordan to form a greater Hashemite constitutional democracy and alleviate some of the financial problems besetting the Palestinian fugitives living in poverty there.

If Israel would swiftly wipe out the Iranian nuclear plants the region could have some breathing space from that new building issues, the general hate mongering would help unify Iraqis for a while in condemnation against the Zionist entity', Persians and Sunni in Iraq could join hands and build a ice little oil pumping confederal empire and U.S. forces could draw down their forces over three years to any of the three Iraqi districts that want them as well as the United States and Kuwait while simultaneously a President Edwards is supporting a Manhattan project Marshall plan for home-power electrical generation and electric cars for the United States.

Say No to Loss Of Mexican Border Sovereignty

Build a competent Mexican border control zone plain and simple for immigration reform. Zero tolerance for illegal immigration is the way to just say no to forced takeover of the U.S. economy by global corporatist cheap labor dreams.

Mexico was late to join the war against Hitler, and like Argentina flirted with the Nazi's, and the Zimmerman affair brought to light the Nazi effort to sign a secret treaty with Mexico. Americans fought hard against the Nazis during the second world war for democracy and it is reprehensible to expect Americans to yield their nation to Mexico simply because their may be majority of white people in the United States a war to eliminate fascism isn't a war upon all white people everywhere. World war two was not a war to give the United States to Latin Americans.
Whiteness or blackness are not crimes-fascism is. Mexican and internationale cohort illegal entry into the U.S.A. lawbreaking is closer to the fascist invasion of Poland than to lawful immigration through a port of entry.

The amnesty bill is a globalist-corporatist economic, security and national sovereignty war on the southern U.S. southern border.

President Bush would like an Mexican reaming illegal alien amnesty bill pr victory for his retirement to Waco in 2009 in order to input further cheap profit or potential Mexivan financial kickbacks. It is untrue that the Presidential Library for Mr. G.W. Bush will have only one volumn; "Misunderestimations of the Democrat Party in Politics" by C. Spot Run

Like Colonel Khaddafi's 'amnesty' for oil the administration may plan for some Republican administration of the future to give Os Bin Ladin 'amnesty' too in return for oil in some Sunni enclave beyond the tarmac. That sort of thing doesn't work if Marine General Conway' Faluja Brigade 'amnesty' of terrorists converted into a Marine auxiliary that returned to terrorism is any example.

The infiltration corridor for cheap labor amnesty for illegal aliens before total border control is established bill that will perhaps not be established is the frontier for an anti-democracy invasion.

Illegal aliens numbering from 12 to 20 million will not choose to permanently remain in the United States if the border is closed off from the south to illegal entry fortunately. Instead attrition will reduce their numbers as they return home to stay. Within five years the number remaining should drop by half, and if illegals turn themselves in within a year of the border becoming secure were eligible to apply to return legally after they leave the U.S.A. instead of being arrested and deported to become ineligible to return legally the number remaining illegally in the U.S.A. would probably drop to 1/4th the original number of illegals.

The historical disingenuity of the George W. Bush administration on the empirical state of affairs of domestic and international relations appears again in the President's support for the Mexican Border Surrender Act of 2007. The President decries opposition as 'fear mongering'-- that from a President that has had two terms of reliance on 9-11 fear mongering to be taken seriously as a politician. The most recent Muslim terrorists arrested in the plot to kill soldiers at Fort Dix had some cadre that entered the U.S.A. illegally.

The southern border is an essential potential avenue of terrorist infiltration and exfiltration in addition to illegal drug portage'.The President acts as if it is instead Mary Poppin's directed preferred underground railroad route for campasinos to escape the confederate slavery of crazy Nazi Aryans oppressing apartheid separated Mexicans from their rightful place as employees of Home Depot or Wal-Mart that just want to do the dirty work Americans won't do.

A U.S.A. grafted onto by a permanent Mexican right-of-return to the U.S.A.(even if they've never been here before) by cowering congressmen fearful of China or more Mexican May Day protests in the streets of D.C. and Los Angeles yet relying on their cheap labor to give constituents a prosperous, comfortable 'rickshah boost' with cheap products at Wal-Mart is a nation in which democracy has become defunct and replaced by corporatist, globalist oligarchic collectives will. That turn away from democracy and road ahead may seem allright as the U.S.A.'s inherited comparative advantage is being cashed out and invested abroad, but the pimp's income falters when opulent attractions of his line of sweet products becomes old and second rate and meth-amphetamine broken down economically speaking...the consequences of fossil fuel addiction, federal debt and non-investment in secure borders and high-quality ecological technology manufacturing in the U.S.A. in preference for reliance on cheap foreign labor.

History demonstrates that nations relying on exploiting cheap labor retard their social and economic growth. The confederacy of course needed to launch a war upon the north before the north pulled away too far in manufacturing and technical prowess while the southerners relied on slaves.
The imperial Russian government's historical reliance on white slaves (serfs) was the actual source of Russia's comparative economic backwardnesslater while western Europe advanced more quickly through tthe industrial revolution. Imperial China before the nationalist revolution was another slacker society ruled by an elite royal mafia forcing the masses to live like slaves. Reliance on cheap labor in the United States in the agricultural sector displaces mechanical harvesting innovations.

In commercial kitchens cheap labor to empty trash cans replaces innovations in portable low cost lifts to lift and dump individual garbage cans into larger powered intermodal carriers to lift into dumpsters...even commercial kitchen garbage cans fail to have built in weighing and l.e.d. read-out displays so the poor laborer knows if the trash can has 100 or 200 pounds of water, coffee grounds, meat waste and other heavier materials. Too many Americans want easy, good paying non-inventive employment positions with the heavy lifting exported.

The end result of the denial of democracy and failure to comprehend corporatism and socialism is the loss of liberty politically and comparative national economic advantage. In a corrupted global economy without liberty in which the best Mafia rule the worst potential of humanity is expressed with the more distopian empirical political actualizations having the best chances of actualizing.

Corporatism was only invented by Mussolini in the 1930's and isn't generally understood by Americans nor others internationally. Corporatism and neo-corporatism have permutated and evolved beyond the initial theoretical inception as real political structures usually do. Neither Marx nor Smith had a conception of the potential synthetic business form that would displace capitalism and democracy in the move towards a combined capitalist and state socialist authoritarian society. After the end of the former Soviet Union in 1990 and 'the end of history' as some wags then had it the New World Order of synthetic socialism-capitalism could begin to grow, yet some still seek to conserve a nationalist emocratic America with liberty and justice for all Americans in a thriving ecology ledaing the world in space technology and green manufacturing creations.
President Bush and Senator Kennedy, two former heavy alcohol drinkers without combat experience are prominent advocates for border control defeat in order to let cheap labor continue to flood out the American poor and middle class for the convenience of globalist corporatists. A trained p.o.w. is another leader in the effort to yield the United States to effective Mexican conquest with instant phenomenal amnesty for up to 20 million Mexicans and free rights of immigration for their relatives perhaps numbering as many as 150 million.

Mexico isn't a third world country, and with some help could be made livable with more tacos and nachos, Dos Cuervos and tortilla for everyone. Even electric waterless toilets, solar power panel proliferation, dvd players able to input a thumb drive contents and play that so every cheap battery operated DVD player in Mexico costing 30 bucks can hold a modest library's books (a 1000 or so), electric small car manufacturing with home power solar panels to charge batteries, concrete monolithic dome construction can replace many square building technologies--monolithicdomes.com has instructed a village in India on methods of constructing the fine long lasting structures for low cost...Mexico can be made livable if the corporatists inspired by the socialist fascist example of Mussolini can be restrained from conquering the sovereignty of the United States.

A border control zone a mile wide should be ecologically designed along the Mexican border to make passage of illegal entrants highly improbable; this could include deep ditches with berms and drive atop patrol roads, fences and water barriers with saltwater siphoned from the Gulfs and utilized for recreation and travel of small boats. Some evaporation and condensation canals may be attached to create fresh water supplies for new Mexico and Arizona as well as Northern Mexico if laws are passed to replace green laws in desert cities with natural desert landscaping while federal research incentives to conform present asphalt highways into heat reflecting and solar photon-electron generating surfaces could be developed.

President Bush at the end of his administration seems to desire to obfuscate his opposition to the Kyoto protocol with further global warming control goals that would take place in effect after he leaves office to accompany his balance the budget economics after he leaves office goals. Mr. Bush is also leaving a withdraw the military forces from Iraq after he leaves office with the improve the fuel economy of SUV and the national car fleet after he leaves office plan. The illegal immigration instant amnesty bill has a totally secure the border after he leaves office plan as well unlikely to be accomplished by anyone either. Additional after Mr. Bush leaves office administration goals for the next administration to work on are balancing the federal budget, capturing Osama Bin Ladin, stopping the Iranians from building nuclear weapons. replacing fossil fuel use in American automobiles with alternative energy power such as electricity produced at home by consumers (I improved the quality of that goal for him).

The amnesty bill requires a lot of dissimulation to putch through and the corporatists/globalists have deep pockets to intimidate and propagandize the public. While Miss America was jeered recently in Mexico City the leadership for the subvert American democracy permanently bill was plotting how to wrap up the border for the President of Mexico. The congressional and administration losers leading the way to defeat of democracy fear socialism in Mexico, and fear the loss of income from a change away from national dependence on fossil fuels. In Alaska oil companies corrupt local politics and seek to get the state to pay a half a billion dollars to finance a natural gas pipeline through Canada. U.S. Senator Ted Stevens is being investigated by the F.B.I. for large home improvements channelled through VECO-an oil services company whose CEO pleaded guilty to federal charges of participating in bribing efforts of Alaskan politicians on pipeline taxation issues. Oil corporatism is far reaching and global; in Iraq the reconstruction probably would have gone much better without several conflict of interest issues by Bush administration officials and oil company interests. One should not underestimate the perfidy of the Bush administration on unintelligent execution of narrow minded global corporatist goals. Democracy has intelligent individuals working for the public good, while corporatism is capable of good governing immersed in profit motives stampeding themselves like a herd of cattle trampling every rational, empirical thing towards the water holes and green grass of money.

Corporatists in error believe that production and profit can replace rational democratic government, and that somewhere within capitalism there is an invisible political philosopher that will guide them to produce the best Dr. Fixall in a bottle to remedy every political, environmental and misc. issue that may arise. Adam Smith never intended capitalism to replace democracy or any other form of government but instead to compete to produce the best products at the lowest costs economically for the masses. Corporatists work fundamentally against capitalism by cooption and destruction of democracy and the freedoms required for both democratic political and social philosophical analysis as well as rival free enterprise. Without boundaries and without civil rights and meaningful equally enforced laws corporatism descends into the totalitarian state familiar to Stalinists.

That empirical blindness isn't enough to conserve a democracy or serve national public interests and leaves socialism as the ineffective and oppressive remedy for much of the international poor. If corporatists kill democracy and democratic development socialism racism sexism and Spencerian forms are the usual beneficiaries politically before the dark night of dictatorship falls.
