The 'New Iraqi Man' Has No Will

By Chris Rossini

Back in 2003, Gary North made a perfect call on Iraq:
"The dream-spinners who sing of democracy in a stable Iraq have not had a clue from the beginning. Democracy is not going to be imposed on a Muslim country in the Middle East by Western military force. This naive dream of college professors and high-salary foreign policy experts in Washington and the related think tanks will cost American taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars before some future President finally admits defeat and brings the troops home."
Richard Ebeling, also in 2003, nailed it as well:
“Just as other social-engineering visionaries in the last hundred years have arrogantly presumed to possess the knowledge, wisdom, and ability to make over man and society, the U.S. government and the American people will find, over time, that people usually do not want others, especially ‘foreign outsiders,’ to tell them how to live and what to believe…The world, after all, is far more complex than it appears to those who draft blueprints for social reconstruction.”
It also should go without saying that Ron Paul was spot on as well:
“We can never hope to impose western, American-style democracy upon a nation that has been rooted in Islam for more than a thousand years. No matter what we say or do, millions of Iraqis and Muslims believe Iraq has simply been invaded by the Christian west. It makes no difference whether American, European, or UN military forces are involved; all are viewed as outsiders seeking to colonize and rule Iraq according to western values.”
The U.S. government, high on their own delusions of grandeur, dove into their 'New Iraqi Man' experiment anyway. The U.S. would create its very own sock puppet Iraqi government, led by their very own sock puppet leaders. They would furnish their new Iraqi Army with the finest military equipment around. Money? It would be no object. Sophisticated destruction devices? Raytheon and Lockheed would happily make it happen.

However, when put the test against ISIS (which is blowback to the U.S. invasion) the 'New Iraqi Man' has been repeatedly pummeled....running away, and leaving the fancy U.S. military equipment for ISIS to take.

U.S. Defense Secretary Carter says of the recent Ramadi loss:
"What apparently happened is the Iraqi forces just showed no will to fight. They were not outnumbered. In fact, they vastly outnumbered the opposing force. That says to me, and I think to most of us, that we have an issue with the will of the Iraqis to fight ISIL and defend themselves."
The 'New Iraqi Man' has no will. Even when outnumbering the enemy, the will is not there. Its U.S. master has supplied the tangible. There is no shortage of physical things. But the master has not (and cannot) supply the intangible.

Unfortunately, the master is insane and will continue to pursue its experiment nevertheless. The professors and "experts" will come up with a new strategy for their 'New (and hollow) Iraqi Man'.


  1. Madness!!!
    When even the most connected, powerful, mainstream guy imaginable (Carter) says this, I say start loading the transports immediately and don't stop 'til every American is the Hell out of there!
    And not to mention (but I will) let Turkey, Iran, Iraq (what's left) Kurdistan, Syria, Saudi, Israel, etc etc deal with these guys. It's THEIR yard!

  2. The mental disorder of militarism has been forcibly mainlined into our nation's veins so long that we are incapable of drawing lessons from history, as we are forced to subsist solely on a diet of nonstop propaganda designed to effectively torture the truth, and erase the last vestiges of our humanity.
