Dr Abdulaziz al-Maqaleh says now after they have slaughtered Iraq and torn it to pieces and humiliated it citizens, looted its antiquities and destroyed its libraries and its institutions, they have begun wondering why they have slaughtered it. Press in the U.S. and Britain are active in submitting this question and repeating it. Sharing it in this query very significant and influential bodies in the two concerned countries in an open attempt to confirm that the two American and British leaderships has used a barrage of false justifications for launching aggression on Iraq. The two concerned administrations had mustered a host of locally and internationally-panicking accusations, foremost of which Iraq's possession of weapons of mass destruction. The latter accusation has proved to be absolutely non-existent. Added to that the two aggressor countries have brushed aside the United Nations and did not care a straw about the international law. This aggressive conduct reflects worldwide reactions by the deceived world public opinion and not only inside the United States and its ally.
Iraq and its army have been the victim of iniquitous lies. The question is not to remove he regime, for Arab regimes come and go. The problem is that Iraq has ended and with it ended its prominent role in facing issues of the nation and its departure from the national equation. Iraq's coming out of this dark tunnel and return to the rank of its nation would not be achieved but by the arms of its sons.
