Iraq,Afghanistan And Gaza Crisis:Have America Ever Won A War ?

Hantu Laut

The American and the Jews did it again.

This time they have probably disturbed a bigger hornet's nest.

There will be implosion of Islamic fervour to hit back at the West.The imminent increase in terrorists activities when Muslim militants unleashed their anger against the West for what had happened in Gaza would not only endanger the Western countries but also other parts of the world where security is less vigilant.

The American and the Jews never seemed to have learned anything from their experience of 9/11 and other terror attacks or they are just too arrogant. It seems like, if you Muslim killed one of us we will kill hundreds of you or we will invade you country and teach you a lesson that you would never forget in a thousand years.It appears to be the policy of the mighty US and Israel against weak Muslim nations.

Most Muslims nations are weak and it is of their own making.Corruption of all descriptions and dimensions are causes of their weaknesses.Hamas has to carry some of the blame for the flare-up and invasion of Gaza.It is their stupidity that have brought Israeli's invasion.

The US believe they are the only superpower left in the world after the breakup of the Soviet Union and no other country have the same military capability to take them on to stop their aggression.

The invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were most unwarranted.How the American lied about the WMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction) in Iraq as an excuse to go after Saddam Hussein and destroy the country's infrastructures.Have they achieved what they are supposed to do in Iraq? After having killed hundred of thousands of Iraqis, have Iraq becomes a peaceful and prosperous nation under the American appointed puppet government?

The invasion of Iraq was launched in March 2003 and after 5 years the country is still in a state of turmoil and lawlessness.Getting killed by militants bullet or suicide bombing are common occurrences in the streets of Baghdad and elsewhere in the country.Yet the American had the cheek to say that they came to save the Iraqis from Saddam and bring peace to the country.They built a fortress for themselves in Baghdad to protect against militants attack and let poor Iraqi civilians be the victims.

The whole of Afghanistan's population suffered and many innocent civilians killed during the bombings and military invasion of the country..... just to get one man, Osama Bin Laden and his al-Qaeda. After killing thousands of innocent Afghans they still have not caught or killed Osama.Even if Osama had been killed, which I believe so, the American must have kept it a secret so they can keep their presence in the country as long as possible.

The Taliban, whether you like it or not was the legitimate government at the time of the invasion and whom they have fought with and removed from power and replaced with their puppets and cronies.The invasion was launched in October 2001 and the war has been going on for seven years. Was there peace in Afghanistan? You hear of people getting blown up by suicide bombers or shot by militants or shot by American soldiers almost every day.

To keep the war going the US have decided to send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan to fight the Taliban.Just imagine what a horrible and badly planned military stratagem and military generals they have. For seven years, with their sophisticated weaponry and equipments they can't even fight and vanquish the Taliban foot soldiers.These are soldiers who are only armed with AK47 and rickety rocket launchers and occasionally drive ramshackle Toyota Land Cruisers.Even with their unsophisticated weapons and limited military training the Taliban had managed to re-grouped and taken back certain part of their country.

They have also infiltrated into Pakistan and are in control of some provinces in the northern part of the country bordering Afghanistan.There is strong fear in Pakistan that the Taliban might take over the town of Peshawar at any time and some even believe the fall of the city to the Taliban is imminent.Peshawar sits on the strategic supply route to Afghanistan.It would be a prize catch for the Taliban.

The war and atrocities committed by the Jews in Gaza are going to inflame Islamist's anger and passion for vengeance and the Islamic militants that would be the first to rise to embolden the strike would be in Afghanistan and Pakistan.There would also be attempts to cause massive damage to lives and properties in other places especially where there are big concentration of American and European and in those areas less vigilant and alert to take precautions against terrorist attacks.

We are all impressed by the American military wares, their huge aircraft carriers,battle ships, tanks, fighter jets and hundreds of other different kind of weaponry.From their nuclear submarines to their stealth bombers, they have the most awesome killing machines, unrivalled to any other nations.

Have the American ever actually won a war? Other than dropping the two H-Bomb on Japan to end the Second World War, which conventional war have they won? With The Korean War, they managed to split the country into two, which was not a victory by any sense.In Vietnam they fought for more than 10 years and was finally trashed by the Vietcong and the North Vietnamese Army like dogs and have to run home with their tails in between their legs.In Afghanistan, they have been in the country seven years and the Taliban is gaining strength and making a come back, believe me, they will be defeated.You can fight guns but you can't fight ideals.That's what 'Pashtunwali' is all about, ideals.In Iraq, they have been in there five years and they are still rummaging through their drawers looking for the battle plan.They have already killed more than enough Iraqis and still couldn't figure out why there are still militants wanting to kill them and people dying on the streets blown up by bombs that they have no bloody idea where it coming from.

That tells you how mighty America has one of the most useless military in the world and with all their sophisticated weaponry and military strategists they still couldn't sought out their enemies.

If they had not dropped the H-Bomb on Japan, all of us including them would probably be living under a Japanese empire.The only war they have ever won was in Hollywood.They can only fight in a war using their high flying bombers to bomb indiscriminately killing innocent civilians on the ground.Put them to fight in a conventional war, they are fucked.

Look what happened in Gaza.The aerial bombing that kill women,children and other innocent civilians.It makes your blood boil to see those dead and dying children in the arms of their parents.We live in the twenty-first century yet this kind of things were allowed to happen.The Jews have learned from them how to conduct a war without engaging the enemies.Just strafe the civilian population and hope it would kill some of the enemies.

I would like to quote Liaqat Ali Toor, a retired brigadier from the Pakistan Army who said
"Terrorism will continue to breed so long as the world's leading powers treat the humanity of weaker nations as less human than their own citizens,"

That's What America is all about, it treats citizens of poorer nations like shit, so it's alright to let them die or kill them.

I hope Obama takes note of this and not let power gotten into his head like the maniacal Bush who is a wolf in sheep's clothing, a white supremacist hiding under the skirt of his wife.

Bukan persaolan besar samada Amerika memang atau kalah dalam mana mana peperangan.

Perkara yang menjadi dukacita lebih kepada Amerika berperang atas sebab sebab yang tidak diketahui kecuali atas niatnya untuk berperang dan memusnahkan atas apa yang dia tidak suka walaupun tidak bersandarkan fakta boleh atau tidak.

Dan perkara yang paling utama ialah kemusnahan yang telah mereka lakukan dan lakukan berkali kali tanpa dapat dihalang dengan berkesan. Adalah wajar pemimpin dunia mencari jalan bagaimana 'mengikat' Amerika daripada bertindak sesuka hati 'once and for all'.

An interesting article & one that will surely bring forth lots of "emotions" (depending on who you support).
My two cents worth:-
1/ Yes you are right, except for World Wat II when they "Nuked" Japan, they have not won a war
2/ Israel is another whole complex question altogether. Despite the fact that I DO NOT support their "methods", I DO understand where they are coming from. They are surrounded my Muslim Countries in the Middle East who have right from the start declared that Israel DO NOT have the right to exist (!?), except for maybe Egypt who have extended the hand of friendship to Israel (& thus widely critized by those other Muslim Nations!). Israel has no other choice but to show they have the might to repel & fight ALL who defy them. Again, I think they should have left Palestine a long time ago but then to them leaving Palestine is showing weakness?
3/ Don't be fooled by Obama. Why do you think he's being quiet? When he's President, he will suppoty Israel just like any of the past Presidents
4/ The only hope for Peace in the Middle East is when the Muslim Nations there agree that Israel has the right to exist & then ALL of them sit down with the US & Isreal to broker a Peaceful Settlement (this I believe will never happen!)
5/ As for the Taliban & Al Queda, well ANYONE (does not matter whether Muslim or not) who do not agree with their brand of Islam is an enemy!

All of them are either stupid or stubborn. That's why wars happen. Come to think of it, malaysia is still a good and peaceful country to stay, warts and all.

...Bush is not a "white supremacist" but a little puppet and lap dog of the only true supremacists the world has ever seen.The jewish-supremacists.
Those people think as their devillish "religion" that they are the only "menschen/human beings" on earth.We the "rest" and approximately 99% of the population of this planet are only animal/goyim to steal from and kill for the benefit of the jews.
It was the USSR the jews used for their zionist world domination scheme and now it is the USSA that does the jews dirty deeds.But as the USSR and their satellite states have fallen so will Israel/USSA and their puppet states soon,too.
Hopefully then the world will get a more peaceful system with economic justice for all people of the world.Western style "democracy" a la Jew-S-A is nothing but a dictatorship of the jewish moneybags!No freedom,no justice,no peace.Bush's and american "christianity" is nothing but the opposite.It's nothing but cruel zionism or so called "judaeo-christianity" which is the biggest oxymoron since the jews hated christ so much that they killed him.John 8/44 they are the children of the devil and it shows what they do on Wall Street and in Gaza!

The Roots of the Conflict

4 January 2009

Those who are familiar intimately with Israeli people realise that they are completely uninformed about the roots of the conflict that dominates their lives. If you wonder how come the Israelis don’t know their history, the answer is pretty simple, they have never been told, notes Gilad Atzmon.

Communicating with Israelis may leave one bewildered. Even now when the Israeli Air Force is practicing murder in broad daylight of hundreds of civilians, elderly persons, women and children, the Israeli people manage to convince themselves that they are the real victims in this violent saga.

Those who are familiar intimately with Israeli people realise that they are completely uninformed about the roots of the conflict that dominates their lives. Rather often Israelis manage to come up with some bizarre arguments that may make a lot of sense within the Israeli discourse, yet make no sense whatsoever outside of the Jewish street. Such an argument goes as follows: ‘those Palestinians, why do they insist upon living on our land (Israel), why can’t they just settle in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon or any other Arab country?’

Astonishingly enough, the Israelis fail to understand who the Palestinians are, where they come from and what they stand for. They fail to grasp that for the Palestinians, Palestine is home. Miraculously, the Israelis manage to fail to grasp that Israel had been erected at the expense of the Palestinian people, on Palestinian land, on Palestinian villages, towns, fields and orchards. The Israelis do not realise that Palestinians in Gaza and in refugee camps in the region are actually dispossessed people from Ber Shive, Yafo, Tel Kabir, Shekh Munis, Lod, Haifa, Jerusalem and many more towns and villages. If you wonder how come the Israelis don’t know their history, the answer is pretty simple, they have never been told. The circumstances that led to the Israeli Palestinian conflict are well hidden within their culture. Traces of pre-1948 Palestinian civilisation on the land had been wiped out. Not only the Nakba, the 1948 ethnic cleansing of the indigenous Palestinians, is not part of the Israeli curriculum, it is not even mentioned or discussed in any Israeli official or academic forum.

In the very centre of almost every Israeli town one can a find a 1948 memorial statue displaying a very bizarre, almost abstract, pipe work. The plumbing feature is called Davidka and it is actually a 1948 Israeli mortar cannon. Interestingly enough, the Davidka was an extremely ineffective weapon. Its shells wouldn’t reach more than 300 meters and would cause very limited damage. Though the Davidika would cause just minimal harm, it produced a lot of noise. According to the Israeli official historical narrative, the Arabs i.e., Palestinians, simply ran away for their lives once they heard the Davidka from afar. According to the Israeli narrative, the Jews i.e., ‘new Israelis’ did a bit of fireworks and the ‘Arab cowards’ just ran off like idiots. In the Israeli official narrative there is no mention of the many orchestrated massacres conducted by the young IDF and the paramilitary units that preceded it. There is no mention also of the racist laws that stop Palestinians from returning to their homes and lands.

The meaning of the above is pretty simple. Israelis are totally unfamiliar with the Palestinian cause. Hence, they can only interpret the Palestinian struggle as a murderous irrational lunacy. Within the Israeli Judeo- centric solipsistic universe, the Israeli is an innocent victim and the Palestinian is no less than a savage murderer.

This grave situation that leaves the Israeli in the dark regarding his past demolishes any possibility of future reconciliation. Since the Israeli lacks the minimal comprehension of the conflict, he cannot contemplate any possible resolution except extermination or cleansing of the ‘enemy’. All the Israeli is entitled to know are various phantasmic narratives of Jewish suffering. Palestinian pain is completely foreign to his ears. ‘Palestinian right of return’ sounds to him like an amusing idea. Even the most advanced ‘Israeli humanists’ are not ready to share the land with its indigenous inhabitants. This doesn’t leave the Palestinians with many options but to liberate themselves against all odds. Clearly, there is no partner for peace on the Israel side.

This week we all learned more about the ballistic capability of Hamas. Evidently, Hamas was rather restrained with Israel for more than a long while. It refrained from escalating the conflict to the whole of southern Israel. It occurred to me that the barrages of Qassams that have been landing sporadically on Sderot and Ashkelon were actually nothing but a message from the imprisoned Palestinians: a message to the stolen land, homes fields and orchards.

Let’s face it, realistically the situation in Israel is rather grave. Two years ago it was Hezbollah rockets that pounded northern Israel. This week the Hamas proved beyond doubt that it is capable of serving the South of Israel with some cocktail of ballistic vengeance. Both in the case of the Hezbollah and the case of the Hamas, Israel was left with no military answer. It can no doubt kill civilians but it fails to stop the rocket barrage. The IDF lacks the means of protecting Israel unless covering Israel with a solid concrete roof is a viable solution. At the end of the day, they might be planning just that.

The Israelis have lost nothing in Gaza. All they want is to finish the Nakba. They drop bombs on Palestinians in order to wipe them out. They want the Palestinians out of the region. It is obviously not going to work, Palestinians will stay.

There is no exit strategy. It can’t negotiate its way out because neither the Israelis nor their leadership understand the elementary parameters involved in the conflict. Israel lacks the military power to conclude the battle. It may manage to kill Palestinian grassroots leaders, it has been doing it for years, yet Palestinian resistance and persistence is growing fierce rather than weakening. As an IDF intelligence general predicted already at the first Intifada. ‘In order to win, all Palestinians have to do is to survive’.

Israeli leaders understand it all. Israel has already tried everything, unilateral withdrawal, starvation and now extermination. It thought to evade the demographic danger by shrinking into an intimate cosy Jewish ghetto. Nothing worked. It is Palestinian persistence in the shape of Hamas politics that defines the future of the region.

All that is left to Israelis is to cling to their blindness and escapism. The Israelis will sing their familiar various victim anthems. Being imbued in a self-centred supremacist reality, they will be utterly involved in their own pain yet completely blind to the pain they inflict on others. Uniquely enough, the Israelis are operating as a unified collective when dropping bombs on others, yet, once being slightly hurt, they all manage to become monads of vulnerable innocence. It is this discrepancy between the self-image and the way they are seen by the rest of us which turns the Israeli into a monstrous exterminator.

Gilad Atzmon was born in Israel and served in the Israeli military. He is the author of two novels: A Guide to the Perplexed and My One and Only Love. Atzmon is also one of the most accomplished jazz saxophonists in Europe. His CD, Exile, was named the year's best jazz CD by the BBC. He now lives in London and can be reached through his website:

I think the Jews know the root cause of the conflicts but they portray themselves as the victims.

As I have said in my article the West is conscience-stricken and created Israel out of Palestine to pay the Jews for the atrocities they committed on the Jewish people for many centuries.

History is repeating itself.Now, the hunted become the hunter.

Whether you gassed them or dropped bombs from the sky to kill them,it is still a holocaust.

It's sickening!, the West's double standards.
