Iraq Offers New Threat To World Community Nations
As yet another example that the government of Iraq is headed down the path of a violent Shiite sectarian theocracy dictatorship, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki offered a fresh threat to the world community that is critical of their executions of political prisoners and former members of the Saddam Hussein regime. Prime Minister al-Maliki warned the world community that executions of political prisoners are an "internal affair" and threatened to "review relations" of any nation critical of the continued executions of political prisoners in Iraq. This same type of harsh threatening language has often come from nations such as North Korea or other authoritarian Communist states or dictatorships.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon urged a moritorum on any more executions in Iraq because of the sectarian damage it is creating in Iraq and the outrage in much of the world community when it appeared that Shiite militia members associated with the radical Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr were the executioners for the Saddam Hussein execution. But given the new hardline arrogant stand against the world community by the Iraq government, the chances of getting this nation to respond to world community pleas appear to be falling on death ears.
The trend is clear. Iraq will eventually force all international forces from involvement in their nation including the U.S. and eventually become one of the worst violent dictatorships on planet earth. Widespread genocide by the Shiite government against the Sunni community will likely result. This is hardly what so many American soldiers lost their lives or were wounded to put into power in Iraq. Iraq is quickly becoming one of the world's most corrupt and violent governments andthe continued U.S. role is such a state requires a serious review by the every American.
