In this thread you can post and discuss anything related to Iraq's foreign relations.
Ummmm.... well perhaps they could TRY asking Mr. Zebari what the visit was all about? :lol: Or in this case he is not the Iraqi foreign minister is he? He's a Kurdish politician? So ridiculous.The Cabinet also decided to form a committee headed by Deputy Prime Minister Hussein al-Shahristani “to investigate the circumstances of the Turkish foreign minister’s visit to Kirkuk and present recommendations to the cabinet,” he said, according to Agence France-Presse.
This will be a long and complicated discussion that is not suited for this forum but I actually read a long assignment on the importance of Saddam Hussein for the Arab population worlwide and yes - most are ignorant about him and his crimes in Iraq. Let me just say that a lot of Arab people see him, or rather want to imagine him, as some kind of divine protector of Arabs who dared to stand up against the "enemies" of the Arab people and the other puppet Arab rulers. The circumstances of his death also play a huge role. Not to mention his relation to the Americans, Israelis and Iranians.I was in Egypt on the day Saddam Hussain was executed. We got in a Taxi and the taxi driver asked us found out we are Iraqi and immediately smiled and entered a conversation with us and started complementing Iraqis saying we are your brothers through these hard times and we cried for Saddam like you cried for him. He was a great leader etc ....
And we would hear similar talk on a bus in Morocco on a bus and started talking to us about the brave Iraqi resistance.
These people are brainwashed and don't really have a clue about what has been going in iraq for the past 3-4 decades.
Is that your reply to my post? Well, did you not watch the huge protests all over the Arab world? Why do you think most Arabs were outraged by the illegal invasion?Again, you are making a big mistake, by applying the logic/selfishness of the tyranic and totalitarian Arab rulers and the opinion of the common people. That's very wrong.It will only take you a few seconds to make a quick Google search on this matter and then you can come back to me and claim that the Arab people were not against the invasion.The Arab world or the Middle East is not democratic. Since when have the common man anything to say about anything?But where was the Arab fury when the people watched their governments allow US troops to enter Iraq from their borders?
There were many demonstrations in KSA because of the 2003 war. Even the clerics and several members of the Al-Saud family were against it. They even tried to hide the fact that they had allowed USA to use KSA land as a launching-pad for the invasion of Iraq.Ok what i am trying to say is ..if the situation was reversed and Iraq was an ally of the US, and allowed US troops to enter and invade Saudi or Kuwait or any other country you would see outrage and protests in the streets of Iraq.
Did we see the outrage across the streets of Saudi or Kuwait?
