la farsa guerra continua...

continua la farsa (come ben de-scriveva Karl Kraus la guerra non è una farsa)... e mentre il cuore batte a sinistra, come sempre, per la vita e contro la morte, basta dare un'occhiata ad alcuni ultimi titoli in giro per il mondo...

Ankara, 20:58, Iraq, Turchia: forse slitta il voto sull'ok a truppe Usa

Ovvero: Turchia mercanteggia:

Il ministro degli Esteri Yasar Yakis, rientrato insieme al collega dell'Economia Ali Babacan da un viaggio negli Usa, annuncia che potrebbe slittare il voto del parlamento sull'autorizzazione all'ingresso delle truppe che gli Stati Uniti vorrebbero dispiegare al sud per aprire un fronte settentrionale in caso di guerra all'Iraq. Il voto era previsto per martedì.

"Gli Stati Uniti hanno sottolineato quanto sia necessario per il parlamento approvare il passaggio delle truppe prima del 18 febbraio - ha detto Yakis -. Noi abbiamo detto quanto ciò sia difficile...". Il sì di Ankara, per nulla entusiasta all'idea di sostenere attivamente un intervento armato contro l'Iraq, dipende anche dagli aiuti che Washington è disposta a mettere sul piatto della bilancia.

Le autorità turche fanno presente che la guerra del Golfo del 1991 costò al paese 30 miliardi di dollari in mancati introiti nel settore del commercio e in quello del turismo. L'amministrazione statunitense, si è appreso, è disposta a concedere a Ankara 6 miliardi di dollari a fondo perduto e 20 miliardi di dollari in prestiti garantiti in cambio di una rapida decisione sullo spiegamento delle truppe. Babacan ha detto che non c'è ancora un accordo finale sugli aiuti. (red)

The Cost Of Calling Off The War

Ovvero, il Mondo Arabo mercanteggia...

Ghassan Charbel Al-Hayat 2003/02/16
It was evident that President Saddam Hussein had watched the famous UN meeting on TV. In fact, he has the right to cheer up, not because the discussions had focused on him but because the meeting revealed the existence of a wide international rising against Bush's administration in dealing with the Iraqi crisis and the world. He might have smiled when he knew, through Blix' and El-Baradei's reports and senior dissidents' interventions, that Bush would not obtain the approval of the Security Council in his potential war against Iraq and that the war was at least, postponed.

Maybe, Saddam Hussein was content with his way to deal with the crisis, hence, he issued, before the meeting, a decree by virtue of which he banned the production and the selling of weapons of mass destruction.

Furthermore, it was evident that Saddam Hussein followed, yesterday, the popular rising against war in the metropolitan capitals in the world. He might have cheered up too when watching the anti-hegemony slogans and those denouncing supremacy and rashness. In this case, he has the right to draw a smile on his face and puff out: the American war is getting more complicated. And waging it, does not imply the ousting of Saddam Hussein only but of several references starting with the UN, NATO and EU.

The Iraqi president has the right to rejoice because Egypt called for an emergency Arab summit in order to reinforce the position of war's opponents and those calling for a peaceful solution to the crisis. When watching the Franco-German axis engaged in a fierce battle to prevent, or delay, the war, Arabs have no other choice than joining this attempt. The Iraqi president has the right to rejoice, but not to the extent of expecting the defeat of the United States as an end to the current crisis. Following 9/11, The US cannot stand another defeat. Furthermore, the world has no energy to withstand such a defeat; the consequences of which might result in international chaos instead of American hegemony. Both of which are dangerous.

A question is to be asked to the members and opponents of war within the Security Council and to the Arab gathering to be held in Sharm Al Sheikh: what price should be paid in order to convince Bush to drop the military option, and to bring the aircraft carriers and the military troops back to where they were before the current crisis?

We are surely not exaggerating when we say that the price ranges from the stepping down of president Saddam Hussein to the imposing of an inspections' formula that represents a kind of an international guardianship over Iraq depriving the regime of its vital tools. It is most likely that greater countries, which cooled off the American enthusiasm in the Security Council, will be firm concerning inspecting and providing the price for the returning of Bush's administration from war.

The Iraqi president has the right to rejoice, provided that he does not indulge in his ecstasy to the extent of committing mistakes in his calculations. He must be aware because the regional and international balances do not allow an American defeat, or will allow Saddam Hussein to claim victory.
