Baghdad Ablaze by Raymond Tanter, Baghdad Ablaze Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Baghdad Ablaze books, Following the liberation of Iraq in 2003, why are Iraqis still fighting? To extinguish the fires that burn in Iraq, one must discover why it is ablaze, what would move Iraqi politicians to put out the fires, and what would induce Iraq’s neighbors to quench the flames. So, what are the causes of violence in Iraq? First, the occupation of Iraq provided the initial spark and ongoing heat for the insurgencies. Second, ethnic and religious strife, prior discrimination by Sunnis against Shiites, disputes over federalism, de-Baathification policies, differences over a proposed national oil law, and disputes about equitable distribution of oil and natural gas revenues contribute to Iraqi instability. Third, Tehran’s subversive sponsorship of militias is like oxygen fanning the flames of conflict in Iraq.This book will offer ideas on how to put out the fires.

President Obama And Iraq

Baghdad Ablaze by Raymond Tanter, President Obama And Iraq Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download President Obama And Iraq books, Professor Raymond Tanter headed a fact-finding delegation to Iraq to interview Sunni Awakening members, Iraqi Shiites, Iraqi and American officials, and the Iranian opposition based in Iraq. This book explains why insurgents ceased attacking U.S. forces in Iraq and turned against al Qaeda, and how the U.S. drawdown can be achieved while preserving gains of the political-military surge. If the withdrawal fails to keep Awakening members from defecting to al Qaeda because of clashes between the Awakening and Iraqi Security forces, gains of the surge will be in jeopardy. Reconciliation with those at the fringes of the insurgency, as in Iraq, is likely to be a centerpiece of the U.S. strategy for Afghanistan. An Afghanistan-Pakistan strategy that reaches out to warlords who have formed alliances of convenience with the Taliban would depend on finding a mediator who has good relations with both NATO forces and those warlords who might be reconcilable.

Islamist Movements

Baghdad Ablaze by Raymond Tanter, Islamist Movements Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Islamist Movements books, The photo on the cover depicts Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, forefather of the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) in 1979. The back cover shows Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, 2014 founder of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). He is only one of the protegees of Khomeini, whether he realizes it or not. Without success of the founder of the Islamic Republic in creating a terrorist state, organizations like ISIS would not have been inspired to seize land for their own states. The Islamist Revolution in Iran also spread to Sunni Hamas in Gaza and Shiite Hezbollah in Lebanon. ISIS split from its parent, al Qaeda (formed in or about 1989 as the base); it refrains from state-building for an incremental approach to world domination; ISIS competes and cooperates with al Qaeda. Frenemies suggests they are friends and enemies. Iran, the Islamic State, and al Qaeda are friends and enemies and collude against common enemies as in an old Arab Bedouin saying: I, against my brothers, I and my brothers against my cousins, I and my brothers and my cousins against the world."

Arab Rebels And Iranian Dissidents

Baghdad Ablaze by Raymond Tanter, Arab Rebels And Iranian Dissidents Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Arab Rebels And Iranian Dissidents books, The book, Arab Rebels and Iranian Dissidents, compares revolts in the Arab world beginning in 2010 with activities of Iranian dissidents in and outside Iran during periods of intense political activity. Chapter One examines European revolutions in relation to Arab revolts, investigates political and economic causes of Arab uprisings, and closes with lessons learned from prior revolutions regarding prospects for regime change in Iran. Chapter Two examines history, achievements, and future prospects of the Iranian Mojahedin. Achievements include being so important to Tehran that it pays inordinate attention to and persecutes the Mojahedin. Secular groups that spearheaded Arab uprisings lacked organizational skills to govern; the Mojahedin reveal such ability by surviving despite efforts to destroy them. Chapter Three explores U.S. interests and role in Arab and Iranian revolutionary activity. The Mojahedin pose a political threat to the Iranian regime, which is a source of leverage to reinforce the U.S. threat of military action to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. The Mojahedin are in position to ramp up their capacity to reveal nuclear secrets. Also of strategic value are more than 100 Mojahedin disclosures of Iranian regime violations of nonproliferation obligations. Several major revelations have been validated by independent observers. Iranian dissidents neither require nor request arms and military support; Libyan rebels, however, asked for and received U.S. air support to overthrow the Libyan regime in 2011. And Syrian rebels may receive lethal American support as that Civil War grinds on and there is evidence of chemical weapons use by Damascus. Regarding Libya, hark back to the spring of 2011. The idea behind the international intervention in Libya was to provide support for the people as they sought to overthrow the Gadhafi regime. The story behind the story of Libya is how the major powers eventually chose to support rebels rather than continue supporting military dictatorships. The western powers had accepted the legitimacy of the regime in Tripoli, although it had little popular support. There was an assumption that regime change from within was unlikely; and it was unnecessary and even undesirable to change this rogue state with external military force. Libya was a status quo regime that often cooperated with Washington in areas like terrorism and proliferation-American priorities. But once the Libyan people rose up, President Obama used the changed political landscape to pivot toward the people away from a rogue regime. The Arab uprisings and June 2013 elections in Iran offer Washington a window of opportunity to reset its policies away from just engaging Tehran to support people-inspired political change in Iran. President Obama can induce the leaderless Iranian street to rise up in their eternal quest for freedom. How? Mr. President: Empower expatriate supporters of the Mojahedin to facilitate the trip up the road to liberal democracy symbolized by Azadi Square. With removal of the terrorist tag and increased support from the American public, heightened congressional clout, and enhanced international stature, U.S. officials should reach out to the Mojahedin. U.S. envoys now have the opportunity to meet the Mojahedin at the White House, State Department, and abroad in American embassies. Sessions also could be held in the newly-reopened offices of the U.S. Representative of the National Council of Resistance of Iran in Washington DC, which are a block away from the White House. It is in the U.S. interest to hold such meetings, which would signal to the Iranian regime that all U.S. options are truly on the table, implicitly including regime change.

The Global War On Terror

Baghdad Ablaze by Todd A. Davis, The Global War On Terror Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Global War On Terror books, The cataclysmic events of September 11, 2001 destroyed the World Trade Center in New York, and later the Pentagon, was attacked by al Qaeda terrorists. The US government responded by invading Afghanistan on October 7, 2001, and the global war on terror had begun. The US and the UK would then invade Iraq on March 20th, 2003, supposedly to stop Saddam Husseins WMD and the Iraqi regimes alleged ties to al Qaeda. The Global War On Terror provides a thorough analysis of 9/11, the Iraq War, the occupation of Iraq, the British role in Iraq, the expansion of the al Qaeda network, and the breakdown of Iraq into sectarian war. The Global War on Terror exposes the underlying political substructure to reveal: o How both the FBI and CIA failed to understand the al Qaeda terrorist plot on 9/11 and failed to stop al Qaeda. o How the Bush administration actually planned the invasion of Iraq before 9/11. o How the Pentagons Office of Special Plans exaggerated both Iraqs WMD threat and the alleged connection between al Qaeda and the Hussein regime. o How American and British casualty levels greatly increased during the occupation of Iraq after combat operations ended with regard to the regime change in Iraq. o How Iraq became a breeding ground for terrorism, and how the Taliban would regroup in Afghanistan. o How the Blair government would attempt to sanitize the David Kelly scandal and how intelligence operations were manipulated concerning the British invasion of Iraq. o How the Plame-gate affair would expose the Bush administrations intricate web of deceit in regard to the alleged Niger uranium and the role Vice President Dick Cheneys office played in the scandal. o How the global war on terror would begin to unravel in Iraq amid the breakdown of Iraq into civil war and chaos.

War And Media Operations

Baghdad Ablaze by Thomas Rid, War And Media Operations Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download War And Media Operations books, This is the first academic analysis of the role of embedded media in the 2003 Iraq War, providing a concise history of US military public affairs management since Vietnam. In late summer 2002, the Pentagon considered giving the press an inside view of the upcoming invasion of Iraq. The decision was surprising, and the innovative "embedded media program" itself received intense coverage in the media. Its critics argued that the program was simply a new and sophisticated form of propaganda. Their implicit assumption was that the Pentagon had become better at its news management and had learned to co-opt the media. This new book tests this assumption, introducing a model of organizational learning and redraws the US military’s cumbersome learning curve in public affairs from Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, the Persian Gulf, Somalia, the Balkans to Afghanistan, examining whether past lessons were implemented in Iraq in 2003. Thomas Rid argues that while the US armed forces have improved their press operations, America’s military is still one step behind fast-learning and media-savvy global terrorist organizations. War and Media Operations will be of great interest to students of the Iraq War, media and war, propaganda, political communications and military studies in general.

Download People Power Fighting For Peace From The First World War To The Present books, A compelling look at war and the antiwar movement in the United Kingdom People Power charts the history of the antiwar movement in the United Kingdom from the outbreak of the First World War to present-day conflicts in the Middle East, telling the story of conscientious objectors and others who have been engaged in protest over the past century. Drawing on testimonies from the Imperial War Museum’s vast collection of recordings and documents, the book gives voice to contributors from different backgrounds and explores their wide-ranging reasons for opposing war, as well as the changes and continuity in the movement throughout these years of almost continuous conflict. The book explores the role of key organizations within the movement and tells the personal stories of high-profile individuals, including Sylvia Pankhurst, A. A. Milne, and Vanessa Redgrave, who stood out against conflict. Accompanying a major exhibition at the Imperial War Museum London in 2017, People Power provides an important and compelling look at the most divisive of human undertakings and is an essential part of understanding war as it exists today.

Baghdad Ablaze by Chalmers Johnson, Nemesis Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Nemesis books, The long-awaited final volume of Chalmers Johnson's bestselling Blowback trilogy confronts the overreaching of the American empire and the threat it poses to the republic In his prophetic book Blowback, Chalmers Johnson linked the CIA's clandestine activities abroad to disaster at home. In The Sorrows of Empire, he explored the ways in which the growth of American militarism and the garrisoning of the planet have jeopardized our stability. Now, in Nemesis, he shows how imperial overstretch is undermining the republic itself, both economically and politically. Delving into new areas—from plans to militarize outer space to Constitution-breaking presidential activities at home and the devastating corruption of a toothless Congress—Nemesis offers a striking description of the trap into which the dreams of America's leaders have taken us. Drawing comparisons to empires past, Johnson explores in vivid detail just what the unintended consequences of our dependence on a permanent war economy are likely to be. What does it mean when a nation's main intelligence organization becomes the president's secret army? Or when the globe's sole "hyperpower," no longer capable of paying for the vaulting ambitions of its leaders, becomes the greatest hyper-debtor of all times? In his stunning conclusion, Johnson suggests that financial bankruptcy could herald the breakdown of constitutional government in America—a crisis that may ultimately prove to be the only path to a renewed nation.

Download The Real Axis Of Evil books, In The Real Axis of Evil, author Stephen Kaposi has utilised extensive research to provide a tough and uncompromising indictment of the US invasion of Iraq, Western imperialism, globalisation, the Israeli treatment of the Palestinians and the Police State being created in the name of "security". He reveals clearly how the mainstream media has provided a pro-establishment coverage to convince people of the need for war and increased security measures that are intended to control their populations. He demolishes the facades of George W. Bush and Tony Blair to reveal dangerous war makers intent on controlling the world and destroying opposition to their new Empires. He shows why Iraq has descended into chaos by revealing the extraordinary level of opposition to America, not just in Iraq, but around the world. The Real Axis of Evil is the necessary perspective to the sanitised, pro-American image the mainstream media has built to deceive people of the real world situation. The Real Axis of Evil provides the truths that the government and their media allies don't want you to know, and do their best to cover up.
