I have been thinking about what to write in the past few days. I didn’t really get into mental status that could let me focus on where the priorities are or from where to start!
Watching news and world cup together have given me enough stress, the flow of information has been enormous to the point I lack sleep and rest. But overall, I had to push myself to go forward with it, and sense the reality of life.
Remembering what happened in 2004 and years after, has brought sad memories to me. I do remember when the same scenario repeated and the terrorist took over Mosul (Nineveh) city. The terrorist destroyed, burned, and looted all police stations in the city. Usually this doesn’t take them much of time to do, and the only simple reason is that they have collaborators inside the city. The Sunni majority of Mosul city play a big role in undermining the security of it.
I have been reading reports, listening to news, and reading newspaper, from different prospective. People were surprised by the quick advance made by “ISIS” (Islamic State of Iraq and Sham) – other call it ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant), both are correct, and both represent the same organization.
I myself wasn’t surprised by this, the reason is because no one disagree that Iraqi people have been divided in the way they think about their future. I was talking to a friend and he was saying “how can we get rid of terrorism”. I replied “when we get rid of the Baath generation who was built on blood. When we get rid of Alqadisya (the name if Iraqi Iranian war that lasted for 8 years) generation, that was built on fighting and destroying. When we get rid of Gulf war generation that was built over sickness and embargos. And when we get rid of the 2003 generation, which was built over looting, stealing, and planting the seed of terrorism. And when we get rid of the ISIS generation, from which people learned how to cut human parts and heads!” he looked at me and was surprised, then said “who is left then?” – I said: “You and Me in Diaspora”
I had no single doubt from the beginning, that Iraqi forces are involved in terrorism. The Iranian Shiite influence over southern Iraq. And the Gulf States Sunni influence on the people in the north. Both denominations hate each other. This hatred has been rooted back to early beginnings of Islam itself, and is very difficult to heal or repair. Why do I think that Iraqi Forces & police involved in this?
First, no stranger knows where to find weapons that the Iraqi Army used before they gave up their locations and bases. And second, after taking the weapons and equipment how could they get away with it unless someone is helping them from the inside. And most importantly is what I tried to analyze from the pictures that I saw and they proof the theory that the Iraqi Army is corrupted as well as the Iraqi police. The people who worked closely with the U.S. Army while they were training the Iraqi Forces have told them about it. But no knew that things could get that bad!
Below is a picture of how the Iraqi Army has been trained to carry an AK47 – this is a vital technique to keep your thumb away from the trigger, otherwise, you are jeopardizing your companions if you were to hear a sudden loud sound, or if you get scared of something:
Same picture, but this time for “ISIS”:
And I was thinking, why some of the picture have ISIS members holding their AK47 like this?! I know and we know how the Iraqi Army used to carry the weapon during Saddam’s era! They were playing with it as a toy, and were never cautious about it.
Another picture of ISIS, and the way they are holding their AK47:
The question is: how did they learn about this method unless they were trained at some point! Even the position that they are carrying their weapons, tells us that they are well trained on how to handle it!
this simple thing proves a theory! it is important to have honest people serving Iraq, they have to be living outside Iraq, well trained and equipped. must have good knowledge about Iraqi people’s background. and most importantly, shouldn’t be loyal to their sect or tribe, but instead Loyal to their country. such people need to get their chance, otherwise, Iraq will remain unsafe place. and instead of calling it the Curdle of Civilization. it will be called “The Curdle of Terrorism”!
and there is much more to talk about! but no one is listening!
