Taza Bombing Prepares Area for The Empire’s Next Move

On the morning of June 20th, Iraq’s Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, gave a speech to a small crowd in Baghdad. Maliki’s message was for people to prepare for the withdrawal of American forces from the country’s urban areas–a maneuver scheduled to take place by the end of this month. There was a grave tone to Maliki’s words as he warned the group of possible terrorist attacks:

“I and you are sure that many don’t want us to succeed and celebrate this victory,” he said. “They are getting themselves ready to move in the dark to destabilize the situation, but we will be ready for them, God willing.”

The people he was addressing were Turkomen, an ethnic group from northern Iraq. For years, these people have been petitioning the government to establish an autonomous state, and they have been at odds with the Kurds in that region. Still, much of the violence in Iraq has been taking place in urban regions to the South of them, so Maliki’s warning of imminent danger probably held only limited significance for these people.

Strangely enough, just three hours after Maliki uttered those dire words, the suicide bombers attacked a mosque in the Turkomen town of Taza Khurmatu, 10 miles south of Kirkuk. It was the most powerful bomb used so far this year. 80 clay buildings were leveled, over 70 people died, and 200 people were injured. Why “Al Qaeda” decided to attack a town in this rather quiet, rural region of Iraq is a mystery to these people. The attack received brief coverage here in the States and was quickly explained as the work of “Sunni extremists” attacking a “Shiite mosque.” The bizarre coincidence of the Prime Minister having warned a group of Turkomen of such an attack–just three hours previously–was hardly mentioned. However, when we place the event in context with all the other suicide bombings (and their attendant coincidences,) we find that perhaps this wasn’t coincidence at all.

Recent reports from Washington have echoed Maliki’s comments, and the “chatter” is that Al-Qaeda will be increasing operations toward the end of the month, in an effort to “disrupt” the plans for American withdrawal from the urban areas. Does this make sense to anybody? If your enemy is making plans on withdrawing, why would you want to disrupt things? Wouldn’t you want to plan disruption AFTER they have gone, rather than giving them an excuse for possibly staying longer?

The US has solidified its position in Iraq and is preparing to redeploy its troops. The bombings–which are ALL state-sponsored acts of violence–are intended to keep the Iraqi people terrorized and act as a warning of what may happen if insurgent activities against Coalition forces are renewed. This is the program which has been in effect now for several years. Whenever insurgents rise up to attack US troops, the “suicide bombers” mysteriously appear and kill scores of Iraqi citizens. When insurgent activity decreases, the “suicide bombers” disappear. The same pattern occurs outside of Iraq. Somali pirates attack US shipping, and shortly after, “Al Qaeda” appears and starts blowing up Somali citizens.

The Coalition is now planning on moving their forces North, toward the Republic of Georgia and the Russian border. The recent wave of “suicide bombings” indicates that area populations are being “softened up” and the political structures destabilized prior to the advance. Two days after the Taza bombing, another “suicide bomb” went off in the North Caucasus region of Ingushetia. This is the tiniest of the former Russian states and borders Georgia. The target was Yunusbek Yevkurov, who was named President of the republic eight months ago by Russian President Medvedev. The bomb exploded as the presidential motorcade was passing through the town of Nazran. Reports claim the bomb was “planted in a foreign-made vehicle, where a suicide bomber might have been sitting, which was parked by the side of the road.”

Over the last two weeks, four officials from Daghestan and Ingushetia have been targeted for assassination. Daghestan’s interior minister, Lieutenant General Adilgirey Magomedtagirov, and two senior Ingushetian officials were killed in bombings. Yevkurov was wounded. In April, a group claiming to be the “Riyadus Salikhiin Suicide Brigade” left a video on the Internet, warning of more suicide bombings.

As the suicide bombers proceed to destabilize the North Caucus area, Coalition forces will be preparing for action in Iraq’s northern region. Eastern Turkey lies in between the Kurdish section of Iraq and the Republic of Georgia. We can expect more violence to erupt between the Kurds and the Turks in the weeks ahead,

    In 2007 Pakistani Intelligence traced the source of much of terror in Pakistan to a terrorist camp in Helmand province of Afghanistan. The camp was run by two Brits, Michael Semple and Mervyn Patterson. Both of these British spooks were ostensibly working for humanitarian organizations like Oxfam. Semple was Council of the EU, Deputy Representative in Afghanistan and Patterson was “UN diplomat” as well as friend of General Stanikzai. Following this extra ordinary intelligence work by ISI, Karzai of Afghanistan and high officials in Musharraf government exchanged visits which eventually resulted in the arrest and expulsion of Patterson and Semple from Afghanistan.

    In December of 2007 Guardian and Independent published stories that were clearly designed to muddle the facts and divert attention away from the real story. The real story was that these training camps were to create the Tehreek-e Taliban-e Pakistan (TMP) or Pakistani Taliban; but why?

    A key factor in Bush administration’s Afghan policy was to get Pakistan to make the war against Taliban its own war and not consider it as an American war that can be used to further Pakistan’s goals. By creating Pakistani Taliban US and Brits would be able to pit Pakistan’s military against the Taliban in general and eventually against the Pushtuns to the extent that Pakistani military could be used to do the fighting in Afghanistan. Furthermore, a side benefit of this program would be, if the Taliban were to take over some areas in Pakistan and a part of the capital, then this would provide a sufficient basis for the US to bomb Pakistani nuclear installations and cease their nuclear weapons. There were serious war plans and military exercises conducted by US forces for this scenario. However, unexpected competence of the Pakistani intelligence and ability of the Musharraf government to convince Karzai to through the two Brits out, put a damper on the CIA-MI5 plan. This kind of policy is typical of Bush administration: grandiose, fuzzy and inconsiderate of human life. I think it is the details of this plan, crating and nurturing Pakistani Taliban, that Panetta has uncovered and reported to congress.
