The Mercer consulting group has released a survey showing Baghdad is now the world’s worst city. Once considered the most advanced city in the Arab world, it is now a dangerous ruin stricken by sectarian and religious violence, corruption, crime, unemployment, pollution and numerous other problems. It is categorized along with Bangui in the Central African Republic and the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince.
Prior to Bush Senior’s invasion, Iraq had the highest living standard in the Middle East. Iraqi medical care and education were the envy of the region. Literacy stood at 80 percent. By February of 1991, however, the country was pitched into the Dark Ages.
The objective of Bush’s invasion was to reduce Iraq to a preindustrial wasteland. Electrical power generation, water treatment and distribution systems, telephone and radio exchanges, food processing and storage, roads, highways, bus depots, public transportation, railroads, oil wells, sewage treatment facilities, factories, mosques, churches, residential areas and even historical sites were all targeted for destruction.
Tens of thousands of people died from dehydration, dysentery, lack of potable water, starvation and malnutrition. Following the criminal behavior of Bush Senior and his coterie of criminal neocons, the risk of epidemics of cholera, typhoid, hepatitis and other diseases skyrocketed. The U.S. compounded this by deliberately targeting Iraq’s water supply.
For the global elite who engineered the destruction of Iraq this was only the beginning. They subsequently imposed sanctions comparable to a medieval siege. The globalist United Nations imposed resolution 687 on the ravaged country in an effort to further compounded the misery and death of the Iraqi people. The former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations Denis Halliday said in 2000, three years before Iraq would once again be invaded, that he had been instructed “to implement a policy that satisfies the definition of genocide: a deliberate policy that has effectively killed well over a million individuals, children and adults… What is clear is that the Security Council is now out of control, for its actions here undermine its own Charter, and the Declaration of Human Rights and the Geneva Convention. History will slaughter those responsible.”
Instead, history followed the “creative destruction” course mapped out by the global elite with the assistance of their neocon think tanks. In 2003, George W. Bush followed in his father’s footsteps and invaded Iraq. It was at best a redundant exercise that, in effect, made the rubble bounce, although it did ultimately result in the downfall of the former CIA assassin turned dictator, Saddam Hussein, who was summarily lynched for his decades of subservience to the global elite.
According to medical journal The Lancet and other sources, nearly 1.5 million Iraqis died as a direct result of Bush’s invasion and occupation, a number that eclipses the Rwandan genocide (the United Nations recently “apologized” for the genocide in Rwanda).
The United States military, as the “world’s policeman” (or executioner, take your pick), has unleashed similar death and destruction in Afghanistan and Libya (30,000 killed in the latter “humanitarian” slaughter) and is now attempting to do the same in Syria, although the manufactured political consensus has so far faltered after decades of war weariness.
The establishment media in the United States repeatedly insists Bashar al-Assad had killed over a 100,000 people in Syria, a figure cited by one of the most demented warmongers in the country, Arizona Senator John McCain. Even the globalists admit the figure is an outright lie. According to SOHR data cited by Micah Zenko and Amelia M. Wolf of the Council on Foreign Relations, “most of the reported deaths in Syria have not been committed by forces under Bashar al-Assad’s command.” In fact, “more pro-regime forces than civilians have been killed during the Syrian civil war,” although you will not hear this on CNN or Fox News.
Baghdad’s fate will be suffered by all who stand in the way of the bankster and corporatist drive for global domination. In order to assert its psychopathic dominance, the ruling elite are determined to fashion order out of chaos and level societies so they might be rebuilt as vassal states ruled by a fascist one world government.
Russia and China, equally interested in authoritarian domination within their related spheres of influence, obstruct the Wall Street game plan for global domination. Thus we see the world’s policeman, more accurately the financial elite’s hit man, undermining China’s interests in Africa and, more poignantly, along Russia’s European border.
“Washington, the ‘exceptional, indispensable country,’ is committed to its hegemony over the world. Russia, China, and Iran are in the way of Washington’s hegemony and are targeted for attack,” writes Paul Craig Roberts. “The attack on Russia is mounting.”
If, indeed, the attack comes, either by calculation or a mistake, the result will be catastrophic.
Russia has around 45,000 nuclear weapons. China, between 100 and 400 (the figures are unreliable), and the United States approximately 70,000 nuclear warheads, more than all other nuclear-weapon states combined.
