Zarqawi's end is not a famous victory

By Robert Fisk

So, it's another "mission accomplished". The man immortalised by the Americans as the most dangerous terrorist since the last most dangerous terrorist, is killed - by the Americans. A Jordanian corner-boy who could not even lock and load a machine gun is blown up by the US Air Force - and Messrs Bush and Blair see fit to boast of his demise. To this have our leaders descended. And how short are our memories.

Dissecting the Zargawi Spectacle

By Danny Schechter

What a coup! What a show! And what an event for Iraqi “leaders” to show-off with terms like he has been “eliminated.” Within hours, the spinmeisters were claiming a “major victory” and pronouncing another “turning point.”

Impunity

By Mike Whitney

George Bush is right; Iraq is “the central battlefield in the global war on terror”. Regrettably, it is the United States that is the main sponsor and supporter of that terror in the form of American-trained death squads.

Death squad activity in Iraq now accounts for more than 1,000 casualties per month. The Baghdad morgue has become a conveyor-belt for American-generated carnage.
