The uprising of the Muslim populations against the existing systems has flared up in Iraq. A young population, across sectarian divisions, is willing to die to get rid of the Western-backed mafia regime, which is making their lives a living hell every day.
Since early October, at least 340 civilian protesters have been killed in a regular blood bath in a number of cities, where the country’s security forces, regime-loyal militias and Iranian snipers are systematically opening fire on the protestors. There is still no end in sight of neither the protests nor the massacres by security forces.
None of this, however, was given the slightest amount of attention, when the Danish government, on November 26, 2019, declared that Denmark is ready to send a new mission of just over 200 men as well as helicopters to Iraq, to lead NATO’s training operation in the country.
The operation will: train military officers, “build Iraq’s military capabilities”, “equip Iraq to deal with its own security problems” and “spread the values of the NATO alliance”. Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod proudly said about the operation, which is part of “the broad-spectrum efforts to stabilize Iraq and Syria,”
“This is a big and important task we will be offering, and an important contribution to the NATO alliance, where we show that Denmark is ready to act – also in the front line – when it counts.” (news.tv2.dk, 26/11/2019)
So, it is now, that it really counts, one must understand. At the time when the uprising of the people against the corrupt regime is attempted drowned in blood … What is the signal from the Danish government here? – The regime in Iraq and elsewhere can continue to torture and murder its own population and count on the support of Denmark for “stabilization” and military capacity building.
As previously in Afghanistan, the Danish state, on behalf of the Danish population, is sustaining a corrupt, oppressive regime… without anyone holding the decision makers accountable.
“This is not about satisfying anyone,” the minister felt a need to say; but how can any sensible person believe that? Denmark participated in the devastating invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003, based on blatant lies. Denmark helped to bomb Iraq to ruins, start a war that has killed over a million Iraqis, extradite prisoners to the worst forms of torture, replacing a dictator with a corrupt political class of hundreds of petty thieves with their death squads and torture executioners.
The ink is barely dry on the toothless war investigation, which concluded that Denmark went to war to please the United States. And now that the Muslim Iraqi people are defying the sectarian divide, that the occupation has nourished and exploited to divide the country, and are dying to bring about real change, the Danish government wants to take the lead in “stabilizing” the pro-American system and spreading NATO’s unwanted “values,” just as democracy was brought to Iraq with bombers and tanks.
Hizb ut Tahrir Scandinavia – strongly condemns Denmark’s involvement in the crimes against the Muslims in Iraq. The Danish political consensus on further intervention in a Muslim country to “stabilize” a murderous regime is disgraceful to the whole of Denmark and should not be accepted by any people with the least sense of justice.
