Greece: another ‘Z’ ?

Readers may remember what happened to a democratically elected popular government in Chile in 1973 – the Generals coup and the subsequent economic hardship inspired by the Chicago School. Greeks already knew this lesson because a left wing parliamentarian, Grigoris Lambrakis, was assassinated by extremists because he had called for Greece to disarm and withdraw from NATO. What followed is deeply disturbing and a worry to anyone in solidarity with the Greek people in their current struggle. I have included a review of the film written in 1969
The film “Z” is about one of these things: about the assassination, six years ago, of a leader of the political opposition in Greece. It is also about all the rest of them. For Americans, it is about the My Lai massacre, the killing of Fred Hampton, the Bay of Pigs. It is no more about Greece than “The Battle of Algiers” was about Algeria. It is a film of our time. It is about how even moral victories are corrupted. It will make you weep and will make you angry. It will tear your guts out.

Iraq’s unity and equality for all Iraqis

Amerli was surrounded by the non-Islamic non-Staters for 3 months with 9 year old Turkman kids and their mothers bearing kalashnikovs to aid the men defending Amerli. No Iraqi army, no peshmerga, no Shia militias came to their rescue until now when the non-Islamic non-Staters just melted away before the bombing started and the peshmerga and Shia militias turned up!

Who organised that and why wasn’t the Iraqi army included in the US-Peshmerga-ShiaMilitia alliance?

The so-called Sunnis that the US-Peshmerga-ShiaMilitia alliance target aren’t the non-Islamic non-Staters. They are the resistance groups that have been fighting both the Iraqi army and the non-Islamic non-Staters. This is all a trick to wipe out any group that is a threat to the US-Peshmerga-ShiaMilitia-Israeli alliance and to break Iraq up into a Peshmerga area and a Shia area, and, if the Sunni-dominated resistance stop being anti-US/Israel and anti-Iran and anti-Abadi/Maliki they might be allowed to get a small spot in between.

These so-called “Sunnis”, that include Shia, Turkmen and Kurds as well as communists of Anbar and Nineveh demand that the constitution be rewritten to preserve Iraq’s unity and establish equality for all Iraqis. US hates them.

Political analyst Ali Ismail Dalimi who lives in Anbar province told Al-Monitor,

The Sunnis are a group of tribal sheikhs, rebels and citizens who are determined to start restructuring the political process. If the constitution is not rewritten from scratch, the Sunnis will never stop their revolution.”  see http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2014/08/sunnis-solution-abadi-maliki-problems.html] kkk and isil
