MANIFIESTO:
Tras la Segunda Guerra Mundial (1945) se fundó la ONU, la cual condenó el Colonialismo. Se inició el proceso de Independencia de las naciones de Africa y Asia (1948-1965), ex-colonias de Francia e Inglaterra. EEUU desarrolló una política de neocolonialismo: dominio politico-económico, pero no militar directo en Hispanoamérica y otras regiones. Su intento colonial directo fue derrotado en Vietnam (1977).

La disolución de la URSS en 1991, puso fin a la Guerra Fría y la bipolaridad en que se había mantenido el Mundo desde la II Guerra Mundial. La Administración de EEUU, sin contrapeso, como Imperio incontestado, se lanzó a la conquista clásica de colonias.

Las víctimas: Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afganistán, Somalia...

Se presiona a los países que limitan las “inversiones” extranjeras, se les obliga a que "abran sus mercados" a los capitales occidentales: Irán, Siria, China, Zimbawe, Corea del Norte, Myammar, Sudán, etc.

Las Instituciones Internacionales, ONU, Premio Nobel, Tribunal de la Haya, IAEA, han dejado de ser neutrales. Adulteradas, son instrumento de esta nueva política colonial. También denominada Neocolonialismo:

1. Exportación de capitales.

2. Adquisición de territorios: Medios de Producción (empresas e industrias), Materias Primas y Energía (recursos naturales).

La forma es clásica, lo hicieron portugueses y españoles (S.XVI-XVII), e ingleses y franceses (S.XVIII-XIX), la retórica ha cambiado: Antes se colonizaba, mataba, destruía y sometía a la pobreza a los pueblos para "Cristianizarles" o “Civilizarles", en el S.XXI para "Democratizarles".


En el S.XXI comienza con un retroceso ético y legal con respecto a los principios fundacionales de la ONU, que debía garantizar la NO repetición de guerras contra civiles y crímenes contra la Humanidad.

TWO U.S. SOLDIERS AND TENS OF IRAQI POLICEMEN KILLED IN IRAQ. BEGINING OF THE NEW YEAR 2011

New Year in Iraq: SEVERAL ATTACKS FROM CHRISTMAS
The two American deaths come amid a surge of targeted killings against Iraqi officials and policemen on the past week. And only since New Year, nine police officers and government officials have been killed and 11 wounded in assassinations or targeted bombings.
The so-called Resistance or Insurgency (sunnies), have increased the attacks in the last two weeks. They look to be focused on the iraqi police, as the Americans do not patrol any more, and are stationed in fortified bases and fullfiling only tasks of advising the Iraqi army and security to American interests, diplomats, etc .
The year 2010 finished with an attack on December 28, in which three suicide bombers entered the police station in Mosul (Kurdish area) and killed a police colonel, two days before a major attack in Ramadi (sunní area) against a government building killed 19 policemen.
In a Web posting on New Year's Day, the organitation “Islamic State of Iraq”, claimed responsibility for the attacks in Ramadi and Mosul, but his authorship is unclear.
In the two first days of this year 2011, another 5 persons have been killed in Iraq, in different attacks, in Balad, Qiyara and Faluya, and 16 were injuried, amog then a prosecutor, militars and civilians. Four police officers were killed on Sunday in Bagdad while on patrol or walking in public by gunmen using silencers, according to the Iraqi Ministry of Interior.
Amid this new surge of targeted attacks, two U.S. soldiers died in a single incident, in central Iraq, but not more details were given by the U.S. military command in Baghdad. The AFP, and iranian Presstv informed in the morning and only in the afternoon informed the "Washington Post" about these unexpected casualties for U.S. soldiers.
In April 2003, the U.S., Britain and other allies, including Spain, ruled then by José María Aznar, invaded Iraq. In Spain, Aznar lost the Elections because of that in 2004.
The invasion of Iraq occurred under the pretext of finding the alleged weapons of mass destruction and toppling Saddam Hussein, but the real purpose was making business:
1. To appropriate the Iraqi State´s owned oil by Exxon, Chevron, Texaco, BP, etc.
2. To spend the arsenal of existing weapons and then ordering new purchases of weapons, to be sold to the Pentagon by Lockheed and Boeing. And paid with the taxes of all the Americans, instead of spending the taxes incomes to solve the lack of quality in gubernmental free medical care, State kindergartens and State´s pensions for retirement
3.The Business of Security (Blackwaters and others) and the Reconstruction of Iraq (Dick Cheney's Halliburton and Bechtel). That meant for iraqis to have in their homeland: Mercenaries, Private Armies and foreing Construction Contractors.
Seven years and hundreds of thousands of deaths later (Arab sources speak of a million dead and 900,000 widows, and Americans only recognize 100.000 iraqis dead), Iraq is an unstable country with strong ethnic and religious tensions, and a sanctuary for radical groups affiliated to Al Qaeda. Nothing of that existed before the USA invasion.
More than that, Iraq has lost the secularism that had before the invasion. Also women have seen undermined their rights, which contradicts the ideological principles declared by the Western invaders.
The Christian minority in Iraq is another collateral victim. In recent days there have been many bomb attacks which have caused dozens of deaths. The most serious was the assault of a church in Baghdad that killed 52 people.
Now in Iraq are living about 300,000 Christians, against the 800,000 who lived before the U.S. invasion.

The invasion of Iraq occurred under the pretext of finding the alleged weapons of mass destruction and toppling Saddam Hussein, but the real purpose was making business:

1. To appropriate the Iraqi State´s owned oil by Exxon, Chevron, Texaco, BP, etc.

2. To spend the arsenal of existing weapons and then ordering new purchases of weapons, to be sold to the Pentagon by Lockheed and Boeing. And paid with the taxes of all the Americans, instead of spending the taxes incomes to solve the lack of quality in gubernmental free medical care, State kindergartens and State´s pensions for retirement

3.The Business of Security (Blackwaters and others) and the Reconstruction of Iraq (Dick Cheney's Halliburton and Bechtel). That meant for iraqis to have in their homeland: Mercenaries, Private Armies and foreing Construction Contractors.
Seven years and hundreds of thousands of deaths later (Arab sources speak of a million dead and 900,000 widows), Iraq is an unstable country with strong ethnic and religious tensions, and a sanctuary for radical groups affiliated to Al Qaeda. Nothing of that existed before the USA invasion.
More than that, Iraq has lost the secularism that had before the invasion. Also women have seen undermined their rights, which contradicts the ideological principles declared by the Western invaders.

The Christian minority in Iraq is another collateral victim. In recent days there have been many bomb attacks which have caused dozens of deaths. The most serious was the assault of a church in Baghdad that killed 52 people.
Now in Iraq are living about 300,000 Christians, against the 800,000 who lived before the U.S. invasion. The branch of Al Qaeda in Iraq has declared war on them.
On the other hand, the so-called War of the Resistance (sunnies), continues but now is not focused on attacking the Americans, because they do not patrol any more, now they are stationed in fortified bases. So in 2010 the attacks were focused on the iraqi police, that the Resistance consider collaborators.
The year 2010 finished with an attack on December 28, in which three suicide bombers entered the police station in Mosul ( Kurdish area) and killed a police colonel, two days before a major attack in the Sunni area killed dozens of policemen.
And only in the two first days of this year 2011, acording to EFE News Agency, 5 persons have been killed in Iraq, in four different attacks, in Balad, Bagdad, Qiyara and Faluya, and 16 injuries, amog then a prosecutor, militars and civilians.
