Abu Musab al-Zarqawi: An Arab Villain Right Out Bushcon Central Casting Kurt Nimmo

Another Day in the Empire

July 6, 2005

The Badr Brigade, reformulated into the Badr Organization, has a problem. Abu Musab al-Zarqawi will not allow Iraq’s Shi’ites to go gently into the night. “Iraq’s al-Qaeda boss targets Shia militia,” declares a headline on the Cape Argus site. “Al-Qaeda’s leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, says his group has formed a new armed wing to fight the Shia militia Badr Brigade, according to an audio tape attributed to him and posted on the internet yesterday,” the lead paragraph of the supposed news item reads. Of course, there is no concrete evidence al-Qaeda is “in Iraq” or even if Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is alive, but never mind—his “internet tapes” are more than enough evidence the mercurial Jordanian wants to make sure civil war wracks Iraq soon as possible (as his master demands).

It is interesting Abu has announced his intention to specifically target the Badr Organization, lately considered a quisling organization due to its cooperation with Bush’s “elected” puppet government in Iraq. “Now our political platform is that we believe in the political process, writing the constitution on time, forming a constitutional government. We hope for justice and peace for all Iraqis,” Hadi al-Amery, leader of the Badr Brigade, told Reuters. “We do not conduct any military operation. It is not our duty and we have no right to do that. We respect the law.” Respecting the law (even if the law is imposed by a puppet government) is unacceptable and that’s why al-Zarqawi has announced via the internet the formation of the Omar Brigade. Iraq’s future is to be busted up into three distinct pieces—Shi’ite, Kurd, and Sunni, with the oil going to the Kurds and Shi’a—and it is Abu’s job to make sure the violence continues, especially against civilians.

John Doraemi, writing for the scourge (and target) of the neocons, al-Jazerra, quotes the following from Asia Times (Oct. 15, 2004):

Q: Just who has this alleged “Zarqawi” targeted primarily?

A: Iraqis.

Q: What is “Zarqawi’s” GOAL in Iraq at this time?

A: To trigger a civil war between Sunnis and Shi’ites.

“… ‘Zarqawi’ also released a statement—but with a different voice, saying he was determined to ‘ignite a civil war between Sunnis and Shi’is’. Curiously enough, that’s exactly what US intelligence wants, a rehashing of the same old British maxim of ‘divide and rule’.”

It should be obvious by now al-Zarqawi is a U.S.-Israeli black op or false flag construct. “By attacking and killing Sunnis who have shown an inclination to collaborate in the elections, al-Zarqawi has reduced the Sunni turnout and increased the Shiite majority,” wrote Stratfor earlier this year.

Indeed, he has made the kind of political horse-trading that would be necessary to maintain Sunni influence in the post-election government difficult, if not impossible. If he is right and the election is an American ploy to put the Shia in power, then al-Zarqawi has been collaborating with the Americans. The Americans want to put the Shia in power, and al-Zarqawi is doing everything to make sure that happens. Obviously, that’s not al-Zarqawi’s goal… From al-Zarqawi’s point of view, the main battle right now is in the Sunni community… What al-Zarqawi needs … is a civil war. He is doing everything he can to foment one and he is doing a pretty good job. (Emphasis added.)

Or maybe al-Zarqawi is the dim-witted school yard bully the corporate media likes to make him out to be. If so, the U.S. military and various intelligence organizations should have found him long ago. “There’s no shortage of documentation, in print and online, on how US intelligence agents operating around the world since the 1950s have created and developed their own terrorist groups,” writes Pepe Escobar for Asia Times Online, “their own terrorist warnings concerning these terrorist groups; and then how they applied multibillion-dollar counterterrorism tactics—including black psy-ops—to neutralize these terrorist groups they created in the first place.

Disinformation and propaganda are key. Creating a “face” to terror is key. So these black psy-ops always include the creation of a cipher. One American psy-ops operative recently leveled with the Australian newspaper The Age: “We were basically paying up to US$10,000 a time to opportunists and criminals who passed off fiction and supposition about Zarqawi as cast-iron fact, making him out as the linchpin of just about every attack in Iraq.”

Abu is a villain right of the Bushcon Ministry of Central Casting: he plays up the over-rated Sunni-Shi’a schism, attacks innocent civilians, engages in mind-boggling brutality, is everywhere and nowhere all at once, and serves the same purpose as George Orwell’s Emmanuel Goldstein. If the Bushcons didn’t have Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, they would have to invent him—in fact, this is precisely what they have done.
