Breakup of the Middle-East

2 02 2008

The breakup of the Middle-East and most of the Muslim world is the most talked about subject these days. I found this articles at the Atlantic.com which discusses Iraq and the future map of what is known as the Muslim world.

A report from the new Middle East—and a glimpse of its possible future

by Jeffrey Goldberg

After Iraq
Not long ago, in a decrepit prison in Iraqi Kurdistan, a senior interrogator with the Kurdish intelligence service decided, for my entertainment and edification, to introduce me to an al-Qaeda terrorist named Omar. “This one is crazy,” the interrogator said. “Don’t get close, or he’ll bite you.”

Omar was a Sunni Arab from a village outside Mosul; he was a short and weedy man, roughly 30 years old, who radiated a pure animal anger. He was also a relentless jabberer; he did not shut up from the moment we were introduced. I met him in an unventilated interrogation room that smelled of bleach and paint. He was handcuffed, and he cursed steadily, making appalling accusations about the sexual practices of the interrogator’s mother. He cursed the Kurds, in general, as pig-eaters, blasphemers, and American lackeys. As Omar ranted, the interrogator smiled. “I told you the Arabs don’t like the Kurds,” he said. I’ve known the interrogator for a while, and this is his perpetual theme: close proximity to Arabs has sabotaged Kurdish happiness.

You know Tia, all this stuff is bcs of oil. This Al-Qaeda is exactly helps US to go for his satanic thoughts about the greater middle east. If you notice the map, all places of Iran, Saudi Arabia Iraq and etc which has oil, goes for the state that americans want to make. So Muslim countries will lose the power of oil. The only country which is safe, is Kuwait. Bcs that’s years after Iraq-Kuwait war, they hiddenly give money (bribery) to Americans.. The free Kurdistan and Balouchistan also will be police of the Mid East. For their power is by americans. Their all problem is to take power of oil from Muslim countries.

Believe me after finishing the new Mid East, they even will end up the Al-Qaeda. Like what they did with Saddam. When they didnt need him, they removed him.

Horrible days of future..
