Who is responsible for the worst terrorist attack in Baghdad?

Crescent International

Shawwal 02, 14372016-07-07

There were no Eid celebrations in Baghdad as people mourned the death of more than 250 people in the deadliest terrorist attack since the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. While the takfiri terrorists claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing, the real perpetrators are the Saudi, Qatari, Turkish regimes that provide support to terrorists. Beyond that, US rulers--Bush, Cheney et al--must be held directly responsible for such crimes.

Iqbal Siddiqui

Rabi' al-Awwal 15, 14312010-03-01

This month marks the seventh anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. The invasion was no surprise of course; it was preceded by months of international politicking as the neo-con Bush administration tried to build international consensus for the war...

Pervasive racial profiling of Muslims in the US

Javed Zamir

Ramadan 11, 14302009-09-01

Racial profiling in the US is so pervasive that it has affected virtually every Muslim living or visiting there. On August 16, there was the well-publicised case of Shah Rukh Khan, Bollywood’s top star, who was subjected to invasive questioning for more than two hours when he arrived on a British Airways flight at Newark, New Jersey airport...

On September 24 the British government published a "dossier of evidence" against Saddam Hussein that critics quickly dismissed as a "weapon of mass deception". Iraq’s fate was determined by decisions made long ago, argues FAISAL BODI.

Debate over treaty confirms the US’s defeat in Iraq

Editor

Dhu al-Qa'dah 02, 14292008-11-01

After months of debate and negotiation, punctuated by periodic reports of progress and agreement on various final drafts, the talks between the US and the Iraqi government on a new Status of Forces Agreement (SoFA) appear no closer to a conclusion than ever before.

Realities of the talk of a US withdrawal from Iraq

Editor

Ramadan 01, 14292008-09-01

When US and Iraqi officials said on August 25 that they had agreed a text for the long-awaited treaty covering a full withdrawal of US troops by 2011, it should have been a major political story. The fact that it wasn’t reflects certain political realities that make the treaty virtually worthless.

The disgraceful failure of the mainstream world media

Iqbal Siddiqui

Rabi' al-Thani 25, 14292008-05-01

Five years after the US invasion of Iraq, it is now widely accepted that the war was based on a web of lies deliberately spun by the Bush administration to justify a war that they were determined to execute come what might. A number of other groups have also been criticised for their roles in the deception, including the US intelligence community and the British government.

Rabi' al-Awwal 24, 14292008-04-01

Shawwal 07, 14242003-12-01

When the history of the US occupation of Iraq is written, November 2003 may well come to be recognised as a turning point, a month in which a number of developments took place indicating the US’s increasing desperation in the face of determined and increasing Iraqi resistance to its presence in Iraq.

Islam the main obstacle to US imperial ambitions

Crescent International

Muharram 29, 14242003-04-01

The US invasion of Iraq has been widely described as the latest stage of a new American imperialism. It has also been described as intended to create a new regional order in the Middle East, often compared to the Sykes-Picot agreement after the first world war...

US/UK spin the war as missiles, bombs and troops ‘liberate’ Iraq

Zafar Bangash

Muharram 29, 14242003-04-01

Iraq was supposed to be a walk-over: its oppressed people were going to greet American soldiers as "liberators," in the manner of the Kuwaitis in 1991, welcoming them with garlands. This was the rosy picture painted by Richard Perle, the superhawk in US president George W. Bush’s government who, together with fellow zionist Paul Wolfowitz...

Dhu al-Hijjah 27, 14232003-03-01

As this issue of Crescent International goes to press, an attack on Iraq seems inevitable. The US and Britain are expected to put their revised draft resolution before the UN Security Council at any moment, giving Iraq until March 17 to "disarm completely" or face attack...

Dhu al-Qa'dah 29, 14232003-02-01

Although millions of people from Manila to Montreal joined peace rallies on January 18, these may not prevent the US war-machine, fuelled by raw imperial ambition and lust for oil, from attacking Iraq. Americans are now playing a leading role in the peace movement...

Strategic reasoning behind US’s apparently irrational determination to go to war against Iraq

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Qa'dah 13, 14232003-01-16

Iraqi president Saddam Hussain must be wondering what more he can do to get off George Bush’s list of “evildoers” who are marked for destruction. He has allowed unimpeded access, even to his palaces, to the UN weapons-inspectors, who have found nothing suspicious so far, although that is unlikely to prevent an American attack.

Ahmad Musa

Shawwal 27, 14232003-01-01

As widely expected, the US declared Iraq to be in "material breach" of UN Resolution 1441 on December 19, after a perfunctory examination of Iraq’s 12,000-page dossier on its weapons programme.
