  • 1. Iraq war ~ The endless war ~
  • 2. How did the “Iraq War” start? Relations with Iran-Iraq War ~ <ul><li>For several decades, the United States had been an ally and backer of Iran's Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. </li></ul><ul><li>The westernized lifestyle of the Iranian elite united Islamists and leftists against the Shah, and led to his overthrow </li></ul><ul><li>After the revolution in Iran, there was an occupation of the U.S. embassy in Tehran by militant students. </li></ul><ul><li>Soon afterwards in 1980, Iran- Iraq war occurs due to the border dispute. </li></ul><ul><li>However when Iraq was on the defensive against Iranian attacks, US began supporting Iraq with weapons. </li></ul><ul><li>Creating a leader called Saddam Hussein, Iraq successfully wins the war. </li></ul>“ Saddam Hussein shaking hands with Donald Rumsfeld”
  • 3. How did the “Iraq War” start? ~Relations with Gulf War~ Kuwait Iran Israel America UN Reopen diplomatic relations Invades Demands an “immediate and unconditional” withdraw Enemies Strikes missiles Sets deadline for withdraw
  • 4. How did the “Iraq War” start? ~What led to the Iraq War?~ <ul><li>1998 31 October - Iraq ends cooperation with UN Special Commission to Oversee the Destruction of Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction called UNSCOM </li></ul><ul><li>1998 16-19 December - US and UK launch a bombing campaign, &quot;Operation Desert Fox&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>1999 17 December - UNSC Resolution 1284 creates the UNMOVIC to replace UNSCOM. However, Iraq rejects to the resolution. </li></ul><ul><li>2002 September - Bush tells skeptical world leaders at a UN General Assembly session to face the &quot;grave and gathering danger&quot; of Iraq or stand aside as the US acts. Rumsfeld accuses Iraq of harbouring al Qaeda terrorists and aiding their quest for WMD. </li></ul><ul><li>2002 November – Iraq accepts UN Security Council Resolution </li></ul><ul><li>“ In Iraq a dictator is building and hiding weapons that could enable him to dominate the Middle East and intimidate the civilized world - and we will not allow it” --- US President George W Bush, February 2003 </li></ul><ul><li>2003 5 th Powell presents tape recordings, satellite photographs and other intelligence data to prove WMD. </li></ul><ul><li>2003 17 March - Bush gives Saddam Hussein and his sons 48 hours to leave Iraq or face war. </li></ul><ul><li>2003 20 March - American missiles hit targets in Baghdad. </li></ul>BUT Greenspan, the consummate Washington insider and longtime head of the US central bank, claimed the invasion of Iraq was motivated by oil.
  • 5. Weapons of Mass Destruction… what was it all about?! Wilson returned to America claiming the yellowcakes were equivocally wrong. Wilson went to Iraq to investigate about the weapons The threat of potential WMD in Iraq was used by George W, Bush to generate public support for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. “ CIA investigated about the yellowcakes claims and believed them to be fraudulent” ---- New York Times Richard Armitage, who gave the source was NEVER charged… Weapons which can kill large numbers of human…..
  • 6. Shocking Reality 1: ~ Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)~‏ <ul><li>Their job is to collect information that reveals the plans, intentions and capabilities of their adversaries and to provide the basis for decision and action which will protect and advance America’s interest. </li></ul><ul><li>However, harsh interrogation techniques authorized by top officials of the CIA have led to questionable confessions and the death of a detainee since the techniques were first authorized in mid-March 2002, ABC News has been told by former and current intelligence officers and supervisors. </li></ul><ul><li>The New York Times recently reported that Abu Zubaydah, the first al-Qaeda member captured after the September 11 attacks, was kept in a freezing cell until he went blue, and later assailed with loud Red Hot Chili Peppers music. </li></ul><ul><li>Integrity. We uphold the highest standards of conduct. We seek and speak the truth—to our colleagues and to our customers. We honor those Agency officers who have come before us and we honor the colleagues with whom we work today. </li></ul>
  • 7. Shocking Reality 1: ~ Tough Interrogation Techniques the CIA wants to use~ <ul><li>1. The Attention Grab : The interrogator grabs the shirt front of the prisoner   by   force and shakes him. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Attention Slap : An open-handed slap aimed at causing pain and triggering fear. </li></ul><ul><li>3. The Belly Slap : A hard open-handed slap to the stomach. The aim is to cause pain, but not internal injury. Doctors consulted advised against using a punch, which could cause lasting internal damage. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Long Time Standing : This technique is described as among the most effective. Prisoners are forced to stand, handcuffed and with their feet shackled to an eye bolt in the floor for more than 40 hours. Exhaustion and sleep deprivation are effective in yielding confessions. </li></ul><ul><li>5. The Cold Cell : The prisoner is left to stand naked in a cell kept near 50 degrees. Throughout the time in the cell the prisoner is doused with cold water. </li></ul><ul><li>6. Water Boarding : The prisoner is bound to an inclined board, feet raised and head slightly below the feet. Cellophane is wrapped over the prisoner's face and water is poured over him. Unavoidably, the gag reflex kicks in and a terrifying fear of drowning leads to almost instant pleas to bring the treatment to a halt. </li></ul>
  • 8.  
  • 9. Shocking Reality 2: ~ Breaking the “Geneva Convention”~ <ul><li>Convention (III) relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War. Geneva, 12 August 1949. </li></ul><ul><li>Prisoners of war must at all times be humanely treated. Any unlawful act or omission by the Detaining Power causing death or seriously endangering the health of a prisoner of war in its custody is prohibited, and will be regarded as a serious breach of the present Convention. In particular, no prisoner of war may be subjected to physical mutilation or to medical or scientific experiments of any kind which are not justified by the medical, dental or hospital treatment of the prisoner concerned and carried out in his interest. Likewise, prisoners of war must at all times be protected, particularly against acts of violence or intimidation and against insults and public curiosity. Measures of reprisal against prisoners of war are prohibited. </li></ul><ul><li>This ratified by 144 countries excluding, India, Myanmar, North Korea, and Zimbabwe. </li></ul>
  • 10. Shocking Reality 3: ~ Is Torture Ever Justified? How many countries agree to tortures?~ <ul><li>The September 11 th attacks have not driven any rich democracy to reverse itself and make torture legal. But they have encouraged the bending of definitions and the turning of blind eyes. </li></ul><ul><li>In a BBC survey which 27,000 people from 25 countries participated shows that more than 1 out of 3 people considered a degree of torture acceptable if it saved lives. On the other hand, the European power countries opposing rate is highest. </li></ul>
  • 11. <ul><li>Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychological and physical condition caused by extremely frightening or shocking events. </li></ul><ul><li>Major symptoms are having nightmares or flashbacks, disturbed sleep, irrational anger, and feelings of isolation. </li></ul><ul><li>It can take weeks or even years to recover. </li></ul><ul><li>Patients are often unable to continue working, and in many cases it destroys the relationships between the patient and the family. </li></ul><ul><li>“ I’m so desperate ‘cause this situation has changed him so much and he became a complete stranger to me…This situation is destroying me and I don’t know what to do anymore.” </li></ul><ul><li>It wasn’t formally recognized until after the Vietnam war. </li></ul><ul><li>It is said that 20 percent of the US servicemen and women in Iraq will suffer from PTSD. </li></ul>Shocking Reality 4: ~ American Troop’s PTSD~
  • 12. Shocking Reality 4: ~Virtual War~ <ul><li>An imagination therapy treats soldiers suffering PTSD. </li></ul><ul><li>The software recreates the sights, smells, sounds, and jolts of the battlefield in Iraq. </li></ul>Photograph: University of Southern California
  • 13. Shocking Reality 4: ~Abnormal Suicide Rates~ <ul><li>Suicide rates of soldiers are abnormally high. </li></ul><ul><li>As of March 2004, 24 US soldiers have killed themselves. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of the suicides were committed after President Bush declared an end to major combat on May 1, 2003. </li></ul><ul><li>Only few suicides were reported in the media. </li></ul>
  • 14. Shocking Reality 5: ~ Media Cooperating with Bush~
  • 15. Shocking Reality 6: ~ Halliburton~ <ul><li>Halliburton is one of the largest companies for oil services in the world. The two headquarters are in Houston, Texas and Dubai. </li></ul><ul><li>Operates in over 120 countries. </li></ul><ul><li>Kellogg-Brown & Root (KBR) is a major construction company which had been a subsidiary of Halliburton from 1962 to April 5, 2007. </li></ul><ul><li>KBR’s business with the military in Iraq </li></ul><ul><li>-maintenance of military bases and equipment </li></ul><ul><li>-construction of housing, prisons and other facilities </li></ul><ul><li>-providing food service and laundry operations </li></ul><ul><li>-shuttle bus and cargo shipping services throughout the area of military </li></ul><ul><li>operations </li></ul><ul><li>-rebuilding the oil infrastructure in the southern part of Iraq </li></ul><ul><li>Vice President Dick Cheney was CEO from 1995 to 2000. </li></ul>
  • 16. Shocking Reality 6: ~Convoy Ambush~ <ul><ul><li>Video shot on September 20, 2005 by Preston Wheeler. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Three KBR drivers were killed. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Given the wrong map. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The truck drivers weren’t armed. </li></ul></ul>
  • 17. What is Guantanamo Bay? <ul><li>Guantanamo Bay is at the southern, eastern point of Cuba, which is 90 miles off the coast from Florida. </li></ul><ul><li>The only US Naval Station found in a communist country that does not maintain diplomatic relations with the US. </li></ul><ul><li>It allows the US Navy and Coast Guard to operate in the Caribbean. </li></ul><ul><li>It is on the frontlines of the battle for regional security and protection from drug trafficking and terrorism. </li></ul><ul><li>Guantanamo Bay camp is controlled by the military in all aspects. </li></ul><ul><li>The International Committee of the Red Cross is the only organization allowed to visit the prisoners. </li></ul><ul><li>It is almost 2 years since Guantanamo Bay was open, allowing journalists(The Guardian and Discovery Channel) to visit. </li></ul><ul><li>Lawyers and Family members of the prisoners are denied access to the detainees. </li></ul>
  • 18.  
  • 19. The Purpose of Guantanamo Bay <ul><li>Became host for the Detainee Mission of the War on Terrorism following the September 11 2001, terrorist attacks. </li></ul><ul><li>For the past 5 years, it has been used as a detention center for suspected terrorists, mainly captured in Afghanistan similarly after the September 11 attacks. </li></ul><ul><li>The Bush administration purpose is to seize people in the ‘War of Terror’, who are also known as ‘Enemy Combatant’. </li></ul><ul><li>A business opportunity for Vice President Dick Cheney’s old company Halliburton Kellogg,Brown & Root (Texas Company) as they were given $33m to build Guantanamo Bay. </li></ul><ul><li>Halliburton has benefited from this ‘War of Terror’ as their overall income from Guantanmo Bay is $135m. </li></ul>
  • 20. Inside the Prison <ul><li>Amnesty International said that, at eight-by-eight feet, the cells are below US standards for ordinary prisoners . </li></ul><ul><li>Former detainees claim to have undergone server beatings, water-boarding, excruciating stress positions, mock executions, starvation, electric shock, and sleep deprivation. </li></ul><ul><li>The US military says the prisoners are forced to wear masks because there is a risk they could spread tuberculosis. </li></ul>
  • 21. The Truth!? <ul><li>According to the US government, these men held in Guantanamo Bay are not “Prisoners of War” but rather “Unlawful Combatants”. Therefore, these men will not be protected by the Geneva Convention. </li></ul><ul><li>Interrogators are also carefully trained in their interrogation methods that does not violate the convention. </li></ul><ul><li>US administration lawyers have also been arguing that since al-Qaeda and Taliban are not state parties to the Geneva Convention, so the ban on acts of torture will not be covered. </li></ul><ul><li>US Court also appeals that Guantanmo Bay is not sovereign US territory, meaning that these prisoners do not have constitutional rights. </li></ul><ul><li>President George Bush said “We don’t do torture” but he has been getting vaguer about the bounds of torture ever since claims of torture by former detainees have come into the public light. </li></ul><ul><li>He goes on further to say that the detainees will be treated as humanly in a manner that is consistent with the Geneva Convention-but only to the extent appropriate and consistent with military necessity. </li></ul>
  • 22.  
  • 23. Continued <ul><li>In July this year, the President says that newly authorised techniques now comply full with the Geneva conventions’ ban on “outrages upon personal dignity, in particular humiliating and degrading treatment” as well as torture. </li></ul><ul><li>The people running the prison are on short rotation, for about 1 year or 6 months- so that the people running the prison now are not connected to the pass abuses. </li></ul><ul><li>“ US close to shutting Guantanamo”-by The Guardian, Saturday June 23 rd </li></ul><ul><li>Defence secretary, Robert Gates, and Condoleezza rice, secretary of state, acknowledges that the continuing controversy over Guantanamo Bay is damaging the country’s interest and standing. </li></ul><ul><li>Ms. Rice said, “We don’t have any desires to be the world’s jailer…I don’t think anyone wants to see Guantanamo open one day longer than is necessary.” </li></ul><ul><li>Steny Hoyer, the democratic majority leader in the House of Representatives, described Guantanamo as “an international disgrace that every day continues to sully this great nation’s reputation”. </li></ul>

  • 30. Voices of Iraqi Refugees 2 <ul><li>Unemployment, Low wages, </li></ul><ul><li>Doctor who fled to Jordan </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;First you need all these IDs and extra qualification tests; but they have placed many restrictions like certificates from different departments in Baghdad, which are so hard to get. They each cost around $600 to get in Iraq so it's nearly impossible to work here. I am unemployed and homeless.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>unemployed for the first five months </li></ul><ul><li>“ About three weeks ago someone gave me a job.

  • 32. Iraqi orphans in hell About 400 children lived in Iraqi orphanages before the U.S. Invasion in 2003. The number gradually increased to nearly 1,000 in early 2006, according to government statistics. Islamic society considers it shameful to abandon children to public care, however officials say war and economic hardship are taking their toll on families. &quot;If it were up to me, I'd kill the Americans and drink their blood,&quot; says Jilan, 14. Her 12-year-old brother, Rakan, was discharged from Mosul General Hospital this month. The whole incident took barely 15 seconds. Before Rakan could open his mouth to warn his father, a storm of gunfire struck the car, killing both parents and covering the children with their blood. Red Falcon soldiers found 24 abused and severely malnourished orphans abandoned in Baghdad on June 20, 2007. The soldiers were working under the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, the &quot;Falcon Brigade,&quot; when they made the discovery.
