Iraq Press Roundup

By ALAA MAJEED (UPI Correspondent)

Published: October 03, 2008

Shebab al-Iraq newswire service on Friday said it makes no difference who wins the U.S. presidential elections because the Democratic nominee, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, and the Republican nominee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, are two sides of the same coin.

Is it time for America to be defeated?

Obama and McCain support Israel and attack any side that tries to threaten their security. They consider the culture of Islam as the source of danger to the West, and both try to dominate the Arab world and control its oil.

Obama and McCain set up their strategic politics in the Middle East and the world relying only on this perception.

Although Obama called for an end to the military presence in Iraq, he and McCain both decided to stay in Iraq and Afghanistan, even though the United States is clearly failing in both places. This gives the impression that whoever wins the elections would be far from reforming the policies of U.S. President George W. Bush.

The failure in Iraq led to the collapse of the Western economy due to the high expenses of the war. However, Obama and McCain still insist on going forward with the invasion until "victory" is achieved, presenting no logical plan to persuade anyone to back their plan.


From another perspective, Kitabat newspaper discussed the position of the political parties and their justification for supporting the Iraqi government.

Who backed Maliki? Was it the Dawa party or the Supreme Iraqi Islamic Council?

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite, is the top leader and one of the most active figures in the Dawa Party. However, carrying out military campaigns against militant groups raises concern for Dawa because it could force the Sadrist Movement, a strong Dawa supporter, to back away from the government.

Maliki could either ignore the crimes committed by the militants and rogue elements of the Mehdi Army or confront them and impose the law.

Dawa leaders opposed a decision by Maliki to take on the Mehdi Army because they didn't want to lose their major support base, so the prime minister was forced to make a decision.

Regardless, he was hesitant to respond to the crimes of the Mehdi Army but was forced, as prime minister, to act according to the law. He carried out his military campaign against the Mehdi Army in the south of Iraq and then announced he would clear the group from Baghdad's Sadr City and other Shiite areas.

Throughout Maliki's campaign, Dawa refused to publicize its views out of fear of angering the Mehdi Army and the Sadrist Movement, which could affect their popularity.

On the other hand, the Supreme Iraqi Islamic Council encouraged its media outlets to "advertise" their support for Maliki's policy to impose the law.

SIIC supported Maliki merely because it wanted to get rid of the armed groups and the outlaws, and not because it backed his policy.


On the impact of foreign interference in Iraqi affairs, the Arabic-language news service Iraq 4 All highlighted Friday the relationship between Iraq and Iran.

Iran doesn't want a stable, secure Iraq

Iran doesn't want security and stability for Iraq or any other country. Events on the ground in the region suggest the religious and fascist government of Iran is behind most of the security, social, economic problems and sectarian struggles in Iraq.

This interference is a direct result of a U.S. policy that opened the door for Iran to interfere with the decisions that Muslim countries, including Iraq, make domestically.

The United States supported Iraqi political parties that allied with Iran. These parties are the main players impacting the security and political situation. The United States knew, however, their hand-picked leaders for Iraq were loyal to Iran and not to Iraq.

By backing an outside power, the United States couldn't accomplish real democracy, security or political stability for Iraq.

Washington has to remember that the refusal by the Iraqi government to sign the long-term strategic agreement is a result of the pressure Iran imposes on Iraq and the United States.

Iran opposes the long-term strategic agreement between Iraq and the United States. Iran opposes the U.S.-backed Sons of Iraq paramilitary force that combats al-Qaida, and it rejects former officers taking positions in the new Iraqi army, as well as forbids the release of Iraqi prisoners.

The Iraqi and U.S. governments are wrong if they insist Iran doesn't have a hand in what is happening in Iraq.
