(right hand hiding what left hand's doing)

The war that is being staged in Iraq at the moment [March 2003] is part of the play called "Global Government" or "New World Order" or "United Nations" or "Big Brother". One of its promoters, Maurice Strong (obiviously a member of "Big Brother's Brotherhood", has just returned from North Korea and is sympathetically relaying North Korea's plans to attack the United States.

There are many hidden reasons why the Western World is being used to attack Iraq, aside from the fact that it plays out Old Testament events and New Testament Armageddon plans. Even the names of the weapons are symbolic. For example, MOAB (the world's biggest bomb) is the same name as the biblical land containing the Dead Sea, from which the Israelites launched their attack into their so-called Promised Land. See MOSES MENTIONS MOAB.

The non-Biblical reasons for the armies of the Western World amassing in the Middle East are no less scary, although just as predictable.

For example, haven't we always been told that if our heads are buried in the sand (in this case the sands of Iraq) our butts are exposed (in this case our North American flank). And to whom is our flank exposed? Well, that can be answered by other sage advice, ie "While the magician has you looking at his right hand, his left hand is creating the illusion". So, while the right hand (the military-industrial complex) has got our attention in Iraq, the left hand (the Corporate Communists set up in China & Russia) could be planning a pre-emptive strike of their own - now that the precedent's been set.

All the best,

Iaqi bridge is sole link for Mosul residents rebuilding lives, by Angus MacSwan, Reuters, July 22, 2017
MOSUL, Iraq -- On a pontoon bridge connecting East and West Mosul, residents of a city shattered by the battle to expel Islamic State cross back and forth trying to rebuild their lives from the rubble. The temporary structure, known as the Victory Bridge, is the only crossing over the Tigris River in the city itself. Other bridges, including the landmark Iron Bridge, were wrecked in nine months of urban warfare which saw Iraqi government forces fight the militants street-by-street and house-by-house. With Mosul back in government hands, hundreds of people stream over each day to check homes in the devastated west side, salvage belongings or find a place to stay in the east. All have tales of hardship and suffering under three years of Islamic State rule and, despite their relief that is over, now they are worried about their present predicament and the future. Many people from West Mosul, where whole neighborhoods were flattened in air and artillery strikes by a U.S-.led coalition, are struggling to pay rent in temporary accommodation. Often they have no work and are running out of funds. Safwan al-Habar, 48, who has a house in al-Zinjili district, had spent a morning seeking help for a particularly alarming problem -- Islamic State had booby-trapped his house. "Two bombs attached to each other with wire. If you put your leg on it, it will explode," he said. "Do you know anyone who can remove it?" he asked. "Every day I go to the military and every day they say come back tomorrow. I am in a mess. I'm paying rent but I want to go home." Civilians must walk across the bridge, which was erected for military purposes. Taxis halt on the east side about half a km (mile) away for soldiers to check papers. People must then walk past the ruins of the Nineveh Hotel - once a luxury hang-out for Iraqi generals - and down a slope to the pontoon where more soldiers lounge in the sun. Taxis also wait on a patch of open ground on the other side. In the cavalcade coming the other way, people toted televisions, cookers, bags of clothes and other items retrieved from wrecked homes. One man had reclaimed some notebooks and an English-Arabic dictionary which he carried in a plastic bag. Another man, Mirsur Dannon Hassan, 53, said his house had been destroyed in an air strike. "I don't have a salary. I need help to rebuild it," he said. He was living in rented accommodation with his wife, five daughters and son in the east but the landlord had just increased the rent from $100 per month to $200. They said life was miserable under Islamic State, also known as Dash, which seized Mosul in July 2014 and declared it the capital of a self-styled caliphate spanning parts of Iraq and Syria. "It was living hell," said 31-year-old Mohamad Zuhair. "Daesh denied you everything. You did not have the right to have a phone or wear jeans. I had to have a long beard." There were beatings and executions for transgressions. As the fighting worsened, gunmen opened fire on people trying to escape. Zuhair's children were traumatised by the experience. "They stayed in a basement for two weeks and are still afraid," he said. "If the government helps me, I'll go back. But if not, I'll stay here." ho Can Help Me? Yasser, 27, had been a taxi-driver in the Old City, a militant stronghold. Three months ago they burnt his car. "That was the only way I could make money. I don't know who to turn to for help. Is there someone who can help me?" he said. He now rents a house for his family for $80 but had almost run out of his $500 savings. "The owner said if I can't pay, I have to get out." Faras Abdulrazaq Mohamed, 33, was heading back from East Mosul to Badoush with his wife and four young daughters. His house was still standing but they had come over two days earlier because his wife Inassalem needed to see the doctor. "There is no doctor, no pharmacy, over there," he said. Firas Elias Abbas, 31, walked over the bridge with his wife Asma, 25. Their home in Nablus district was damaged and they had moved to a refugee camp but wanted to return so Asma could resume classes at Mosul University. She was studying chemistry when Islamic State seized the city. "There was no university, nothing. I lost three years," she said. She was going to the university, which is in East Mosul, to find out what the situation was. The campus is a bombed-out ruin -- Islamic State had used it as a headquarters, making it a target for coalition air strikes. Still, Asma said: "I'm optimistic."

U.N. Envoy: N. Korea Preparing for War
By JOE McDONALD, Associated Press, Mar 22, 2003 Writer
BEIJING - North Korea is preparing for possible war with the United States and is concerned about Washington's intentions after its attack on Iraq, said a U.N. envoy who returned Saturday from the North. North Korean officials say missile tests and other recent steps that have unsettled its neighbors were meant as preparation for such a conflict, said Maurice Strong, a Canadian aide to Secretary General Kofi Annan. Strong was visiting Pyongyang as part of U.N. efforts to mediate the North's nuclear crisis with the United States. South Korea put its military on heightened alert this week, and on Saturday the North retaliated by canceling economic talks scheduled for next week. That could mean it will also suspend more important inter-Korean talks next month aimed at easing nuclear tensions.

The United States says it wants a peaceful settlement to the dispute. But the U.S. war in Iraq is getting intense study from North Korean officials, Strong told reporters. "They are watching it very carefully and with deep concern, and questioning what this means in terms of the U.S. ultimate intentions toward them," Strong said. Asked whether North Korean leaders feared they would be the next target of U.S. military action after Iraq, Strong said, "Fear I do not believe is in their vocabulary. Concern, yes, real determination to seek a peaceful settlement. At the same time, preparation for war, if necessary."

Strong did not say specify how he knew about the military preparations, and gave no details. He said officials expressed "deep concern for the threats that they perceive to their own security, and a determination to defend their security and their integrity." Tensions on the Korean Peninsula have been high since Washington said in October that the North had admitted starting a nuclear weapons program in violation of a 1994 agreement.

Strong said he met with "very senior people," but wouldn't give their names or other details. He said he was conveying "guidance and information" between the two sides but couldn't discuss it before he reports to Annan.

Both Washington and Pyongyang have said they want a peaceful settlement, and Strong said North Korean officials expressed optimism that one was still possible. But Washington has rejected the North's request for direct talks, saying instead other governments must be involved — a condition that Pyongyang has rejected. "Until those discussions occur, the risks that the process will degenerate, without the intent of either party, into a conflict still remain," Strong said. Washington and Pyongyang, which fought on opposite sides in the 1950-53 Korean War, have never had diplomatic relations.

With the United States focused on Iraq, experts fear North Korea might use the opportunity to test a long-range missile or reprocess spent nuclear fuel to make atomic bombs. That would be viewed as an attempt to force Washington into direct negotiations. Asked whether North Korea might try to use tensions over Iraq to try to force a compromise, Strong said, "I don't think forcing the U.S. is anything they realistically consider. They want the U.S. to engage them in direct negotiations."

The two Koreas had planned to begin talks in Pyongyang Wednesday to discuss ways of boosting economic cooperation. Topics included opening territorial waters to commercial ships from each side. The South put its military on heightened alert Thursday, saying it wanted to guard against any effort by Pyongyang to raise tensions during the Iraq war. The North reacted by calling off the meeting. "When our dialogue partner is threatening us with a dagger, we have no option but to conclude that we must delay the talks," said Pyongyang's state-run Central Radio, which was monitored by South Korea's Yonhap news agency.
