110 Bodies Found in Iraq in 48 Hours

Posted on Oct 12, 2006

Reuters via the Wash Po:

Iraqi police found 50 bodies dumped across Baghdad on Tuesday, apparent victims of sectarian death squads, and a bombing at a bakery in the capital killed 10 people in the biggest single attack of the day.

The discovery of the bodies, many tortured and all shot, brought to at least 110 the number found in Baghdad in the past two days, an Interior Ministry official said.

Sad and outrageous as this might be, 50 or 110 killed in a few days is no more a significant number compared to the moderate estimate of 650,000 Iraqi killed since the American invasion and occupation of Iraq.

It’s obvious that the neo-fascists ruling from Washington D.C., with the drunk behind the wheel as their leader, are achieving their goals in permanently destroying Iraq. They want to liquidate the young Iraqi population with their schemes of creating infighting among the different factions of the population.

Additionally, they are frightening the well-to-do segment of the population to flee the country for safety,(and this number runs now in the over a million figure) and leave the country with the few surviving poor and disabled. This will give them the chance to claim, as the Zionists did early in the history of their movement,of a land without people for a people without land, justification to permanently colonize Palestine, that this is a country (now Iraq) without people for a people without jobs in their countries, who need to exploit the land and its resources for the wefare of humanity and to keep the oil flowing for the wellbeing and prosperity of the West!
