The same sources added that ambulances and military vehicles continue in the same time to carry large numbers of corpses of dead and wounded among the militias puppet government to hospitals in the region.

Moreover, the witnesses stated that the battalions 54 and 11 of the criminal pro-Iranian Safawid army suffered serious losses in the confrontation with the Resistance at Abu Ghraib.

In addition, the Iraqi resistance continued for the second consecutive day to confront the militias of the Maliki government in the town of Taji, 30 km north of Baghdad.

Finally, the criminal pro-Iranian henchman of the mullahs, Nassir al-Ghanam, commander of the corps 17, has resigned and fled Iraq to an unknown destination, said the same sources.

Iraqi resistance victory ! Jailbreak at the infamous Abu Ghraib !

This is a story from the imperialist news media (Reuters) and as such NACAZAI cannot confirm any of the information. What seems to have really happened is that the Iraqi resistance to the US-backed Maliki pupet regime has attacked the Abu Ghraib prison (scene of the famous US tortures in 2004) and liberated imprisoned resistance fighters. We will attempt to confirm the story and get more info from our Iraqi comrades.

(Reuters) – Hundreds of convicts, including senior members of al Qaeda, broke out of Iraq’s Abu Ghraib jail as comrades launched a military-style assault to free them, authorities said on Monday.

The deadly raid on the high-security jail happened as Sunni Muslim militants are re-gaining momentum in their insurgency against the Shi’ite-led government that came to power after the U.S. invasion to oust Saddam Hussein.

Suicide bombers drove cars packed with explosives to the gates of the prison on the outskirts of Baghdad on Sunday night and blasted their way into the compound, while gunmen attacked guards with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades.

Other militants took up positions near the main road, fighting off security reinforcements sent from Baghdad as several militants wearing suicide vests entered the prison on foot to help free the inmates.

Ten policemen and four militants were killed in the ensuing clashes, which continued until Monday morning, when military helicopters arrived, helping to regain control.

By that time, hundreds of inmates had succeeded in fleeing Abu Ghraib, the prison made notorious a decade ago by photographs showing abuse of prisoners by U.S. soldiers.

“The number of escaped inmates has reached 500, most of them were convicted senior members of al Qaeda and had received death sentences,” Hakim Al-Zamili, a senior member of the security and defense committee in parliament, told Reuters.

“The security forces arrested some of them, but the rest are still free.”

One security official told Reuters on condition of anonymity: “It’s obviously a terrorist attack carried out by al Qaeda to free convicted terrorists with al Qaeda.”

A simultaneous attack on another prison, in Taji, around 20 km (12 miles) north of Baghdad, followed a similar pattern, but guards managed to prevent any inmates escaping. Sixteen soldiers and six militants were killed.

CONVOY ATTACK

Sunni insurgents, including the al Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq, have been regaining strength in recent months and striking on an almost daily basis against Shi’ite Muslims and security forces amongst other targets.

The violence has raised fears of a return to full-blown conflict in a country where Kurds, Shi’ite and Sunni Muslims have yet to find a stable way of sharing power.

In the northern city of Mosul, 390 km (240 miles) north of Baghdad, a suicide bomber detonated a vehicle packed with explosives behind a military convoy in the eastern Kokchali district, killing at least 22 soldiers and three passers-by, police said.

Suicide bombings are the hallmark of al Qaeda, which has been regrouping in Mosul, Iraq’s third-largest city and capital of the Sunni-dominated Nineveh province.

A separate attack in western Mosul killed four policemen, police said.

Relations between Islam’s two main denominations have been put under further strain from the civil war in Syria, which has drawn in Shi’ite and Sunni fighters from Iraq and beyond to fight against each other.

Recent attacks have targeted mosques, amateur football matches, shopping areas and cafes where people gather to socialize after breaking their daily fast for the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.

Nearly 600 people have been killed in militant attacks across Iraq so far this month, according to violence monitoring group Iraq Body Count.

That is still well below the height of bloodletting in 2006-07, when the monthly death toll sometimes exceeded 3,000.

July 27th is Korea’s Victory Day

July 27th this year will be the 60th anniversary of the Korean victory in their Fatherland Liberation War (known in the US as the Korean War), a war called forgotten by Americans, forgotten because Americans do not wish to remember the first war they lost in their history. The Korean victory was a triumph for the international proletariat in their anti-imperialist struggle for it showed that, in the words of Chairman Mao, the US was a “paper tiger” that was not the invincible superpower it claimed to be and that a small nation of people determined to be free at all costs could defeat the mighty imperialist giant. The lessons of the Korean war were studied used later on by the Vietnamese and other peoples in their wars with American imperialism. For the oppressed peoples inside America July 27th is also a day of victory because any action which weakens the regime that enslaves us is a benefit for our goal of liberation and revolution. We too can learn from the Korean people’s struggle much in the way of strategy, tactics, and ideology. NACAZAI calls on all anti-imperialists inside the US to join our class comrades in Korea and celebrate Victory Day !

Only a Revolution will bring Justice for Trayvon Martin

7a96261386d81228088190c8b67bdb3c_l
The streets of America are in turmoil as we speak, all justice-loving people are outraged over the recent verdict in Florida where George Zimmerman – a hobby cop who murdered an innocent 17 year old black person who was only buying Skittles and was judged to be a criminal by Zimmerman merely because of his appearance – was found innocent by an all white jury. The people of America are waking up to the fact that post-racial, multicultural, tolerant, Obama’s America, is an illusion and the real AmeriKKKa is as white power racist as it always was. Racism is needed by the capitalist state in order to justify whole populations in America living in miserable conditions where they are exploited as slave labor for the elite, if racism were no more and the working peoples of all colors discovered their common cause we’d have a massive front that would overpower the elite so they must make us hate each other to save their own positions. If anything has changed in the racial balance of America, it only shows the fact of class identity is what creates racial identity in that Zimmerman, son of a white judge father and a Peruvian mother, considers himself white. So long as we live in a classed society killings like those of young Trayvon will continue over and over again. If we want justice, we must make revolution and abolish all oppression altogether and finally give the black peoples of America the right to control their own destiny.

Baathist Prisoners Dying in Iraq

bilde

The defeat of US occupying troops in Iraq under the continued success of the Iraqi resistance lead by the Baath Arab Socialist Party resulted in US troop withdrawal in 2011.

However, this withdrawal meant that the vaccum left behind by the US must now be occupied by Iran a staunch hater and enemy of the Baath. Iraq had already once before defeated the plans of Iran to occupy Iraq. Under the leadership of martyred president Saddam Hussein, Iran was defeated in its ambitions to both occupy Iraq and to spread its Safawi sectarian program across the Arab homeland; during a decade of fierce combat by Iraq in the 1980’s when Iran was then under the rulership of Ayatollah Khomeini. Now with the political support of the US Iran has been allowed to occupy Iraq. Soon afterwards Iran and its agents chiefly the instilled puppet ruler Nouri Almaliki launched their sectarian Safawi program in Iraq that targetted all non-Safawi Iraqis and placed the Baath as its chief target.

Political campaigns lead by the Iranian agent Nouri Almaliki launched witch-hunts to target the Baath and its leadership inside Iraq. With the growing membership and popularity of the Baath inside Iraq mainly through its success in leading the Iraqi resistance, the pro-Iran government first passed the law to “Uproot the Baath”, when that law failed next came the law to “Criminalize the Baath”. Under disguise of these laws numerous Baathists were assasinated in the streets of Iraq. Also, many were rounded in hystrical campaigns -to attempt to curb the increasing success of the Baath-to be placed in prison. Senior Baathist leaders were particularly of interest. Despite their old age and failing health and despite numerous appeals to the United Nations and to humanitarian groups in the West to look into neglect and torture being practiced upon them in prison by the Nouri government, these appeals by the Iraqis have never been answered. The conspiracy to target Baathist prisoners such as Tariq Aziz, Abdul Ghani Abdul Ghafoor, Dr Huda Mahdi Ammash and others have gone on without any attention from the West or the UN. Today as a consequence prisoner senior Baathist and brother of martyred president Saddam Hussein, Sabawi Ibrahim Alhasan,has been murdered in prison.

This deliberate murder out of neglect to the health needs of these political prisoners can not be allowed to continue with silence. Nouri AlMaliki and Iran who with American support executed the legitimate president of Iraq Saddam Hussein ( in their cowardly act in 2006 ) and now occupy Iraq, must be brought to justice for their continued criminal acts inside Iraq against the Iraqi people and for their murder of these political prisoners. The UN and Western humanitarian groups in a similar fashion must answer to their hypocritical lack of action in Iraq towards the plight of these political prisoners there.

Enough is enough!

A note about Palestine and NACAZAI’s position :

Recently some viewers of our new website have asked us “what makes NACAZAI’s position on the Palestinian issue unique ?” Let us respond by saying that our organisation is truly anti-Zionist and pro-Palestinian; many supposed anti-Zionists, even those that support a one state solution and the right to return still accept that colonialists still have a “right” to live in the stolen land of Palestine. NACAZAI condemns this hypocritical and opportunistic stance and asks – would any of you reading this allow a thief to live in your home that he’s broken into ? Then why should Palestinians be forced to accept invading people living on their land ? Just as the vanguard revolutionaries in Africa such as comrade Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe are expelling the white colonists from African land, we support the right of the Palestinian people to live in their land free from all colonialism by supporting their call is for all Zionists to leave all of pre-1948 Palestine. Our position is that we uphold the Arab identity of Palestine, Palestine is Arab from the river to the sea. As such NACAZAI adheres to the original unammended Palestinian charter and not to the one state solution, NACAZAI does not recognize the state of “israel” nor its right to exist.

Why We Support Libya, Syria, and Their National States Against American Neoliberal Imperialist Aggression

This article is originally from 2011 but is still relevent today as we see the continuing US-instigated rebellion in Syria. It is the duty of all genuine anti-imperialists to support Syria right now and all states that the US attempts to overthrow.While we at NACAZAI are not supporters of the Syrian regime, we believe that regime change is a right that belongs only to the Syrian people. We are opposed to all foreign interefence in Syria from NATO, pro-US Arab collaborationist monarchies, and Salafist fundamentalism.

 

Little has changed from the time the reigns of power in the imperialist center have been transferred from George Bush senior to Bill Clinton and from George W. Bush junior to Barak Obama. During this time we had witnessed-during their collective rule- several horrific holocaust type events starting with Iraq and ending in Libya.

 

Between Clinton and Bush junior there was the death of an estimated 3 million Iraqis. Around half of which took place during the ruler-ship of the democrat Clinton through economic sanctions and another equal amount murdered during the ruler-ship of the republican George W. Bush junior through war and the occupation of Iraq. This of course not counting the number of Iraqis murdered at the hand of George Bush the father during the first gulf war.

 

 

One thing has been consistent in the last two decades of this reign of terror, and that is, that since 1990 millions have died in Iraq at the hands of the direct actions of four US presidents and their British and other allies and we witness the same taking place today in Libya this time through the direct actions of Barak Obama and his French other imperialist allies.

 

President Saddam Hussein was killed by George Bush junior and Ossama Bin Laden was killed by Barack Obama. Both presidents were involved in the invasion and the continued tragic occupation of Afghanistan where millions of Afghanis continue to suffer a brutal occupation and to be targeted today by imperialist policies of both administrations.

 

 

What is going on? Why has there been a consistent thread of war, aggression, and occupation in this long stretch of US presidents spanning two decades ?

 

Common in the media and academia has been several political theories attempting to explain this mad cycle of war, killing, military aggression, and occupation mainly spear-headed by the United States on a global scale and in particular targeting Arab and Muslim countries.

 

The geopolitical ideas of Johan Rudolf Kjellén a Swedish political scientist in the early 20th century explained how countries expand and shrink in their constantly changing borders and geography as a result of changing politics. As such countries could lose or gain territory influenced by the changing political balance of power around them.

 

 

Samuel Huntington presented to the world his faulted theory of the clash of civilizations. Here people’s religion and cultural difference were inevitably going to drive the world into conflict. Huntington was better off to call this a clash of empires not far-removed from the way the old Roman empire- resurrected today in the form of the US empire- would lead conquests against other nations! He would have been more accurate if he did.

 

As it stands though Huntington believes people’s religion and culture are a source of unavoidable conflict. He, like Ossama Bin Laden, may argue that this is a religious war, when we know better.

 

What Huntington should have pointed to is the empire like features of the new Roman empire resurrected in the form of the US of today with its foreign imperialist policy practices. Trying as it does to gain absolute military and economic power on a global level. What we on the left side of politics commonly refer to and understand to be imperialism, the highest stage of capitalism!

 

Is it so hard to see that when imperialism and imperialist policy exist that there is no outcome possible but war, aggression, and human tragedy ?

 

 

Fukyama and his neoconservative movement outspoken advocates were more inconspicuous than Huntington. They preached that America had an obligation to use its military might to attack countries opposed to its policies or that threaten it or that threaten its interests. This resulted in the Bush doctrine of 2002 which necessitated the need for the US to use pre-emptive military wars of aggression on nations deemed a threat to its security or economic interest. Fukyama and other neoconservatives urged that US presidents such as Bush junior go on war offensive in Iraq and Afghanistan. With this understanding it is clear to see how neoconservativism has been the ideological backdrop of what transpired in Iraq and fueled the wars of aggression led by the two Bushes and that manifested itself in the now recognized Bush doctrine of 2002.

 

Incidentally, there are those around us today who are vying for political power in the US who will continue this neoconservatives policy such as John McCain and the Tea Party followers of Sarah Palin. So we might see them take power again with obvious implications to what might transpire as a result soon to be seen on a world scale if they succeed in assuming power in the US.

 

To understand the actions of Obama today in his war of aggression against Libya and his continued aggression in Afghanistan one needs to see the ideological backdrop to his thinking in the form of neoliberalism. Neoliberalism a political movement that must have been inspired by the work of Milton Friedman of the Chicago school of economics in the 1960s and in its advocacy for government deregulation measures to enable the creation of free market economies around the world. Neoliberals advocate that US presidents step in through military force to make economical changes that benefit and facilitate the creation of so-called free market economies.

 

This neoliberal thought necessitates that the US attack countries who oppose the entrance of big businesses in particular targeting national-states that are considered rogue states with ‘dictator’ rulers. It conceals its imperialist policies and wars of aggression through the use of media ploys that call for democratic rule and human rights protections against tyrant rulers to justify mainly economic expansion plans on behalf of transnational corporations and big businesses.

 

Neoliberals believe that the role of US presidents are to instigate political actions that target states much like the Libyan state today and the Iraq state before that prevent the entrance of big businesses into lucrative markets especially those with rich natural resources of oil deemed critical for US interests (mainly unabated consumerist waste of energy in the ‘free world’), as is the case in Iraq or Libya where huge reserves of oil were nationalized and outside the control of major foreign companies .

 

If we survey the situation of the Arab countries today we can decipher clearly two political groups. Those in the camp of the US empire and those opposed to the US empire.

 

Those in the US camp are clear to decipher however those opposed to the US empire oppose it to varying degrees. There are those trying to coexist with the US camp through negotiations and those opposing the US camp vehemently and mainly through military action.

 

The Arab gulf states are an obvious choice for a representative of those in the US camp, while countries as Saddam Hussein’s state of Iraq and now Libya and Syria are considered opposed to the US although to differing degrees. Clearly, the most militant to the US today is in the form of the Iraqi resistance led by the Baath party in Iraq which is currently combating with great success the viscous and illegal US occupation.

 

Both Libya and Syria (that have been backed by Iran) once tried to negotiate a coexistence with the US are now driven into a military confrontation by the US and have apparently fallen out of favor with the US neoliberalists and neoconservatives alike.

 

Why is that ?

 

To explain this let us first consider the case of the countries that are in the US camp. For the countries that gain US favor and trod US policies and act as an implementer and executor of US imperialist dictates, policies, and economic directives their safety is guaranteed by the US. However, to gain entrance into this exclusive club is necessitated by two requirements. One is enabling US big business to take equal if not more control of these Arab markets and in particular control of their natural resources mainly oil in the case of the Arabs.

 

The second requirement for entrance into the favor of the US and for membership of this exclusive club is to give recognition and normalize relations with the Zionist state of “israel”. Those countries who accept the US led Camp David Accords as a base for normalizing relations with “israel” gain US favor and acceptance and those opposed are considered rogue, lose favor with the US, and are targeted.

 

Obviously, such countries in Arabia have that enjoyed great US favor received economic aid both in the form of military and political support most notably Mubarak’s Egypt which was the first to sign the Camp David peace accords with “israel”. Those who joined later such as the King of Jordan with the signing of the Wadi Arabah treaty and most recent has been the peace treaty offered to “israel” through the King Abdullah peace treaty of 2002 that the majority of Arab regimes signed on to in the famed Arab league summit meeting in Beirut during that time, including Syria.

 

So despite the back and forth dealings with the issue of normalizing relations with the Saudi-led initiative of recognizing and normalizing relations with “israel” since 2002 and the back and forth negotiations taking place in-between Iran and its Arab allies with the US imperialists over a co-existence formula, why has the US targeted countries such as Syria and Libya today and is working hard to infiltrate the Arab Spring countries such as Egypt and Tunis that recently toppled their tyrant leaders through popular revolts; as the US neoliberals today work hard to fragment countries such as Sudan and now Yemen ?

 

The answer to us in the Arab nationalist camp has been obvious and well understood. National-states must be destroyed by US imperialist neoliberals/neoconservatives to favor entrance of big businesses into their countries and to take control of their reserves of oil. It is clear that the neoliberals in the US have decided that Iran backed countries such as Libya and Syria must be toppled in order to push forth a more “israel” compatible government along the way of a Malki in Iraq and a Karazai in Afghanistan.

Finally we can not ignore the larger global geopolitical game taking place today on an international level in-between the US neoliberals on one hand and China and Russia on the other hand. Both Libya and Syria have backed and supported China and Russia and their economic access to vital projects in Libya and Syria and have been given preference in defiance of the US and its allies and sought as an alternative to US based businesses. Something the neoliberals of the US can not tolerate as they compete with China and Russia for access to the region.

 

So in conclusion the wars in Libya and Syria are directed by neoliberal imperialist policies of the US to breakdown the national state in favor of a client state subservient to US economic interests and geopolitical strategic interests in both Asia and Africa as they compete with China and Russia for these markets.

 

The war of aggression which we are witnessing today has nothing to do democracy nor human rights it is about economics. It is about the US objectives:

 

-liquidate opposing national states in the region

-facilitate the entrance of American big businesses

-take control of oil

-guarantee security for “israel”

-weaken the geopolitical position of regional powers such as Iran and international powers such as China and Russia in these markets

 

As such Muaamer AlQadaffi and Bashar Alasad become ‘dictators’ and ‘human rights’ abusers and no longer can be tolerated.

 

Through an understanding of the reasons highlighted above we opposed to US and Western imperialism must stand firmly in support of Libya and Syria and their defense of their national states against American neoliberal imperialist plans of aggression and exploitation.
