Bism Allah Alrahman Alrahem

Iraq after the war in 2003 declined due to corruption

It was thought after the end of the regime in 2003 when the US invaded and occupied Iraq that the new era will be better.   After 13 years from that time till now the political system based on ethnic shares rather than the professional and expert competition proved to be big failure.  

Those who came after the invasion to power all of them without exception are corrupts and inexperts.  They put their own interests on the top and above the interest of the country.   Corruption increased like a rocket in all aspects of the life.  Everything in Iraq declined and failed  including the health system, the economy, the agricultures, the production, the social network, the security and above all there is at least 35% of the west of Iraq occupied by ISIS for the last 2 years.  

Demonstrations every Friday went on for the last 12 months against the corruptions which involve even the high Judicial systems and the oil.  The oil x-minster Hussein Shihristani found to be involved in the biggest ransoms taken from the oil companies to give them oil production.   All the parties in the government of Iraq without exception are corrupts and one cover for the other.   

Iraq was under the control of one dictator who is Saddam and he was not corrupt though and he provide security while with those there are many dictators and all of them corrupts and not paying attention to any thing related to the services or Iraq nationals or security at all.  They are only busy dividing the power and competing for the positions and the ministries and the money.   

The recent uprising of the people is supported by some of the members of parliaments who take refuges in the parliament building for the last few days seeking to correct the system which divided the power between the main politicians to put it back to the people based on experts and professionalism and transparency.  It is to end the corrupts from leading the country to anarchy and failure.  

The Iraqis expect from the US and other countries to support the Iraqi people in their uprising against the corrupts politicians who steal the assets of the country and who misuse the power to their own interests.  We do not accept the interference of other countries who ever they are to support those who are corrupts especially in the head of Iraq states.   There are many Iraqis killed and died or had no where to sleep or to eat while the Iraqi politicians live luxury life on the money that they misuse for their own interest from the oil.   

You have to support the Iraqi people and not their corrupts politicians to win your good relation with that country who will topple these politicians sooner or later.  

Hopes and aims for 2016

Every time there is new year the people hope for better year to bring them their wishes.  Some of us will achieve what they want yet others will not.  Even some of the people may get harder time for the coming year.  It depend on our actions and not the year as such.

It is not the years which make changes in our lives but we create the changes and the achievements.   Years only making us older and older while we play the game.

When we are talking about the prosperity which is a common thing that reflect positive light on everyone by improving the economy and jobs it means that we are talking about peace and stability around the globe.   Such thing can not be achieved easily if there are threats to the peace and stability.   

In Iraq peace and stability are far from achievements despite the recent success that the Iraqi forces achieved in Ramadi.  In fact the stability in the Middle East will not be achieved soon due to the existence of Daiesh and the other terrorists organizations.  In fact these organizations are more strong than ever inspite of the continues strikes against them.  They now control more revenues and money from which they created not only wealth but organized supports and groups ready to move all over the world.   The danger of such groups is more than ever been before.  If these groups remain receiving the same support from certain states and others and treated with the same way as now, the 9/11 for the coming attacks will look like a game.  

Equality, prosperity, human rights, tackling poverty, and achieving peace all over the world are aims ad hopes not only for 2016 but all times and will not be easily achieved.   

Can the war in Syria lead to regional or world war?

Irrespective of the real cause of the Turkish fighters shooting down the Russian air-fighter and whether it happened inside or outside the Turkish airspace; there should be an investigation.    
If this shooting was happened more than 50 years ago it could have been led to regional or even world war.   Next world war (supposed to be the third) is only a matter of time to happen but the people learnt a lesson that wars can only damaged both the losers and the winners. It is therefore will not happen easily and only those who are too fool enough to make war on their lands.  

In fact war in Syria is a small scale world war happening on behalf of different powers on the Syrian soil.  Russia entered the war against the terrorists strongly and will not leave it easily at all. There are only two options for Russia is either to emerge as victorious or as a looser.  If she loose it will never again have the same interests to only in the middle east but everywhere else.  From this we know that the shooting of its airplane fighter and the killing of one of its pilot while he was alive on the ground by the Turkish supported rebels is a serious issue as President Putin said.  It is the first accident of its kind since the WW-II!   Alone might not lead to a wide spread war but it is certainly increased the tension and any other incident will make that kind of war more looming.  The other certain outcome is it served the interests of the Daiesh (ISIL).  
On the other hands the Turkish air fighters so frequently infringe the boarder over Iraq and attacks the villages of the Kurdish citizens inside Iraq.  It is therefore the rights of these people to shoot down the Turkish fighters too.  In fact the Iraqi government should make mutual pact with Russia for protecting the Iraqi airspace and buy from them missiles for that aim.  Turkey is having problems with most of its neighbors include Syria, Iraq, Iran, Arminia and others.  It is playing with fire by many actions to support the ISIL, smuggle weapons, smuggling the oil from Iraq and Syria and all that help in terrorism and attacks happened last in France. 

Raja Tayeb Erdogan dreaming and behaving like he is the Othman Emperor so he will lead Turkey into grave consequences. 

Tension in the world damages the prosperity and resources

At least for the last twenty years escalating tension of terrorism happens everywhere with waxing and weaning periods.  Attacks due to this happened almost suddenly and all kinds of measures may not able to prevent them.  There is no one immune even those who support it.  

Until now only conventional ways used in the attacks but that doesn't mean that in future it would not happen to use mass destruction weapons.   These may include biological, chemical and even nuclear weapons.  It may be a matter of time before we see such kinds of attacks.  

Unfortunately the world and despite of the recent attacks since 2001 is not yet united in making active and effective measures to abolish terrors.  In fact quite few states play double standard and yet others support the terrorist groups for their own agenda.  

Now the tension intensified after the last few weeks of spread of attacks.  These attacks never stopped in Baghdad and Syria but it start to get spread and the danger is still looming and increasing.

The solution is not to wait to react because this is what these groups want the others to do.  Simply to react in fear and terror.  The solution is to stop it by using effective measures including against the countries that support it.  

Terrorism have nothing to do with Islam as a religion but it is related to some Muslims who have wrong ideology about all religions.  It can not go parallel with people peace and prosperity.  The more terrorism exist the more it threaten the world peace and the less development and prosperity for mankind.  

To have good life all people need to live in peace and harmony which leads to progression and development.  Anything opposite to that will lead to decline in the quality of life for everyone but the few who feed the terrorist groups with weapons and dumb their garbage in them!

The Muslims are the most affected people by the terrorist attacks

Attacks in Baghdad are daily scenes

There are a lot of doubts surrounding the war against terrorism which leads us to ask the question, who are behind terrorist attacks and what are their real intentions?

If the world is genuine in its war against terrorism, why then they not wage a real war rather than a kind of knee jerks and sort of propaganda following these attacks in the West while ignoring the suffering of the others such as in Iraq?

Real war against terrorism is to prevent it with preemptive measures.  When some one gets an infection should be treated by medicine which get rids of the cause and not to treat the symptoms only.  The same thing applies for the terrorism, by cutting and drying its routes.  This means its ideology, states which enforce it, media that try to legalize or support it, those who arm it, those who finance it, and the areas that incubate it including the war zones.
What the world is doing about terrorism is trying to treat its symptoms while leaving the cause intact.  You cannot dry a bad plant by trimming its top leafs while leaving the route intact and its branches grow all the directions.  This is exactly what happened for the last two decades.   The question is, could those who told the people that they do war against terrorism are in fact playing double standard by supporting the terrorists in one hand and trying to make the others to believe that they fight it with the other hand? 

Islam as a religion is completely against war and from its name it means peace, however as there are fundamentalists and terrorists everywhere in the history of all religions, ideologies, imperialism, occupations, there are such people within the Muslims who do not follow the real peace principle of Islam.  The majority of Muslims are peace loving people and they denies any killing against people who are not in direct war with them.  It is in the Holy Quran that a killing of one soul (any human soul) is as if killing the mankind. 
In fact the Muslims are the main people affected by the terrorists as many example occurring in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Beirut, and other countries.  Daily in Iraq there are many people killed by bombs, explosives, rockets, cars, and gun shootings since 2003.  The Iraqis are fighting the Daiesh (ISIS) groups, which occupied one third of their country since 2014.  Everyone know who created Daiesh (ISIS) and who support them and why? 

Airstrike is not effective way and will not stop the terrorists but will make them more determined to stay and use different means to perpetrate their attacks next.  President Putin declared similar statement lately.  Route drying of the states, media, arms, finance and supports to those who are fighting them on the ground in Iraq and Syria and others are the solution.  The recent UN resolution addressed these issues but on broad terms that left it for interpretations.  A real resolution should specify the effective measures and make it mandatory rather than leaving it for interpretations.  It is weak approach.

In short: the Muslims are the most affected people by the terrorists and not the opposite.  They suffering in their countries between death and refugees and in the West by pointing unfairly and unjustly towards them where most of them are sharing the building and the development of the Western countries include the USA, as positive and active citizens like any one else with peace, tax-paying, businesses, and playing active parts in all kind of services and societies. 

The attacks which happen in the West such as France are nothing but drop in the ocean of the suffering of the Iraqis for the last ten years especially since 2014.  There are daily bloodshed, killing, and Iraqi soldiers killed in their daily fight against the same terrorists groups who did Paris bombs for the last years.

Those who are saying as far as the war is not in our land, away from us in Iraq or Syria we are safe; they are wrong and short-sighted.  The lesson is clear and the right way to get rid of the bite is even more clear but it is up to the whole world to unite and find where and how to end this terrorism.
