American policy in Middle East caught in 'a perfect storm'
By Rupert Cornwell in Washington
Published: 13 July 2006
QUOTE
Rarely can United States policy in the Middle East have been in such disarray as now.

Events in Iraq are a fair approximation of civil war, while after a brief display of smiles, Iran is more truculent than ever over its nuclear ambitions.

As for Israel, far from moving towards peace with its neighbours, the Jewish state is embroiled in an escalating, two-front confrontation with Lebanon and Syria to its north, and with the Palestinians in its midst.

Three years ago when the US invaded Iraq, vowing to install a stable peaceful democracy that would be a model for the region, such a state of affairs was unthinkable in Washington. The war would be brief, policy makers asserted, and Iraq's various ethnic and religious groups would come together to build a new country after the departure of the brutal and hated Saddam Hussein. American troops would be fêted and made welcome as liberators.

That was the spring of 2003. By mid-July 2006, some 2,550 US troops have lost their lives in a war costing $250m (£136m) a day, while the death toll among Iraqis may be five times as high.

In the past four days, at least 130 people in and around Baghdad have been killed in sectarian violence, including up to 23 Shias seized yesterday at a bus station north of the capital. The killings have made a mockery of the proclaimed security crackdown in Baghdad by the new Iraqi Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki.

Iran meanwhile seems less inclined than ever to give up its nuclear ambitions. Yesterday, the world's major powers referred Iran back to the United Nations Security Council after its failure to reply to the West's offer last month of incentives to halt is uranium enrichment activities.

But Russia and China have shown no sign of willingness to adopt tough sanctions against the Islamic regime in Tehran. And in the end America may be faced with a choice akin to the one it faced over Iraq: either acquiesce in doing virtually nothing - or bypass the UN and form a new "coalition of the willing" to take tougher, conceivably even military, action.

To these two flashpoints, a third has now been added: Israel's reprisals against the Palestinians over one of its soldiers taken hostage last month on the border with Gaza. Some 50 Palestinians have now been killed.

The crisis spread to confrontation yesterday with Hizbollah guerrillas, backed by Syria and Iran, in southern Lebanon, after incidents in which three Israeli soldiers were killed and two others captured.

The White House insists that its policies are on track. If there are "a lot of issues in motion", according to Stephen Hadley, Mr Bush's National Security Adviser, "in some sense, it was destined to be. We have a president that wants to take on the big issues and see if he could solve them on his watch."

More probably an administration whose energies have been consumed by the war in Iraq, on which Mr Bush has staked his presidency, may be simply overwhelmed. The separate crises amount to "a perfect storm", Madeleine Albright, who was Secretary of State under Bill Clinton, told The Washington Post last week. "We have not been paying attention to a lot of these issues."

In the latest flare-up between Israel and its neighbours, Washington has been almost silent. Condoleezza Rice, the Secretary of State, who is struggling to orchestrate the response to Iran's defiance, merely blamed Hizbollah for upsetting "regional stability", and urged Syria to rein in its radical protégés.

But Washington's rebukes are far less pointed than a year ago, in the aftermath of the St Valentine's Day assassination of the former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri - when the talk here was of "regime change" in Damascus to follow that in Baghdad.

The change reflects a growing, if tacit, acceptance that the unilateralist "Bush doctrine", involving pre-emptive action if necessary to remove a threat, is beyond the power of even the US to implement on its own. Hence the President's more restrained tone of late, encapsulated by Time magazine's latest cover, proclaiming an end to "Cowboy Diplomacy". The problems also reflect a failure to think its policies through. The irony is that Hizbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine achieved their roles in government thanks to democratic elections - exactly what Washington has been advocating for the entire Middle East.

On the periphery of the region, meanwhile, the problems grow more daunting, with the renewed Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan and the apparent seizure of control of much of Somalia, long a potential terrorist redoubt, by Islamic fundamentalist groups.

Further afield, North Korea's brazen missile tests may be a sign that, like Iran, the reclusive Communist regime does not believe that with so many of its forces tied down in Iraq, Washington has a viable military option.

Bush says new approach needed in Iraq
Friday Dec 8 06:54 AEDT
President George W Bush says a new approach is needed in Iraq that could include contacts with Iran and Syria and US troop reductions, a day after a panel pressured him for a swift change in strategy.

Bush said he was working on a speech to outline his new strategy for Iraq, an announcement the White House hoped would be possible by the end of the year.

A report by the bipartisan Iraq Study Group on Wednesday increased pressure on Bush to move quickly to change strategy in Iraq due to what it described as a "grave and deteriorating situation" there with time running out to make changes.

"I believe we need a new approach," Bush said during a White House news conference with British Prime Minister Tony Blair, his closest ally on the Iraq war.

The report advised Bush to begin withdrawing US combat forces and to avoid "a slide toward chaos" in Iraq by launching a diplomatic push that would include Iran and Syria and a sustained US commitment to Arab-Israeli peace.

The panel, led by former Secretary of State James Baker, a Republican and Bush family friend, and former Democratic Congressman Lee Hamilton, recommended a rapid increase in training of Iraqi forces and that US combat troops could be withdrawn by 2008.

Bush did not close the door on that proposal.

"I thought that made a lot of sense. I've always said we'd like our troops out as fast as possible. I think that's an important goal."

Bush was predictably cool to direct talks with Iran and Syria, countries he considers regional bullies. He said direct talks with Iran were contingent on Tehran forswearing nuclear ambitions and that Syria should not stir up trouble in Lebanon.

But he said he was open to including them in a regional support group to talk about Iraq as long as they understand what he called their responsibilities: "to not fund terrorists, to help this young democracy survive, to help with the economics of the country."

"And if people are not committed - if Syria and Iran is not committed to that concept, then they shouldn't bother to show up," he said.

Blair, headed to the Middle East next month to talk to Israelis and Palestinians, was not as unwilling as Bush to accept the recommendation advanced by the Iraq Study Group to engage directly with Iran and Syria.

"The issue, for me, is not a question of being unwilling to sit down with people or not, but the basis upon which we discuss Iraq has got to be clear and it's got to be a basis where we are all standing up for the right principles," he said.

Blair has been under fire at home for his staunch support of Washington and US voters were widely seen as repudiating Bush's approach in Iraq in Nov. 7 elections in which his Republican Party lost control of the US Congress.

Blair did not dispute the study group's central conclusion that the situation in Iraq is deteriorating.

"I think the analysis of the situation is not really in dispute. The question is: How do we find the right way forward?" he said.

Said Bush: "I do know that we have not succeeded as fast as we wanted to succeed. I do understand that progress is not as rapid as I had hoped."

It's Vietnam all over again. The US, full of its own propaganda and bully-boy bluster, violently interferes in another country's affairs and then finds that, despite all its money and war materiel, it is ineffectual against determined opposition. When the going gets tough, the soft-bellied US declares the situation to be the problem of the indigenous people and pulls out.

Have you seen the mighty US military men going into action? They are so loaded up with body armour, radios, night sights, camel backs, gadgets, bags of candy and insufferable egos that they can only move at a lumbering waddle - the best comedy on TV.

Hiya Noddy and uggy, I had a phone call last night. It was a young gal taking a survey on.... guess what?

The survey was about Bush, his admin, their policies and the war in Iraq.

I spoke my mind, from the heart.

I told her that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and most of the Bush administration should be in prison.

Afghanistan was also brought up and I told her about how Afghanistan is once again the Opium capital of the world supplying 92% of the worlds Opium. "Mission Accomplished!"
(I forgot to say that infamous phrase though - dang!)

When i was asked if I knew how many dead US troops have been killed in Iraq, I said yes, it's over 2800 killed in country, but probably another 10,000 who have died after leaving Iraq. I also told her about depleted uranium and how US miltary families who served in Gulf War I were having babies born without arms and legs.

The time is coming for GW Bush and his criminal gang to step down if they wish to save themselves from being Bubba's cellmates in prison or perhaps the hangmans noose for being traitors to their country and the war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes against the environment they have commited.

Guilty as charged on all counts!

US may send second carrier to Gulf
Thursday Dec 21 11:12 AEDT
The Pentagon has been asked to add a second US aircraft carrier to the Gulf region as a warning to Syria and Iran, a senior defence official says.

The request came from the US command responsible for Middle East operations.

The war-fighting Central Command wants the carrier strike group and its warplanes by the end of March for "deterrence" and to increase "flexibility", including for potential noncombat operations, said the official.

"It gives them (the Central Command) the flexibility to move around," she said.

"And it does send a message."

No final decision on the matter has been made by the Joint Chiefs of Staff or the Defence Department, which must approve it, the official added.

The request from Central Command chief General John Abizaid is now under review by the joint staff and Navy "to determine the best way to meet the requirements", she said.

It is expected to reach the chairman of the joint chiefs, Marine General Peter Pace, by the end of this week.

CBS News had reported that a projected naval buildup was intended to discourage what US officials view as increasingly provocative acts by Tehran as it presses its nuclear program and support for Shi'ite militias in Iraq.

Syria was also a factor in the request, the official told Reuters, "in the vein of deterrence".

In addition, the Central Command considered it useful for dealing with possible contingencies in Iraq and Afghanistan, she said.

The Navy and the Central Command had no immediate comment.

The carrier Eisenhower and its strike group is already in the Gulf region.

A carrier strike group typically includes 70 to 80 warplanes, among them F/A-18s, E-2C Hawkeyes and EA-6B Prowlers, along with escort ships.

What sort of a warning would another carrier in the gulf give? All it has to do is get within 180 miles of land and it comes into the range of land-based Sunburn missiles against which the US has no defense. How soon before sunburns become air-launched? What value an 85,000 ton carrier then?

I think that the airborne tool which would be the most effective in the US arsenal would be the dove of peace. If the US can find a capitalist conglomerate which can supply such an item.
