Shoe Thrower: "I wanted to restore pride of Iraq"
USA Today: Shoe Thrower says he intended to restore Iraq's pride

The man is, any way you cut it, a hero. That, by the way, has nothing to do with Bush, who was the old patsy for the internationalist agenda in Iraq. It is about Iraq not wanting to be pushed around and divide-and-conquered any more.
So let me get this straight. Saddam was hardly a benevolent dictator. His family was mafia-like and dominated the country, including acts of genocide against the Kurds in the early 90s.
And that is where my willingness to parallell the mainstream media abruptly ends. Saddam was put in place and armed by the CIA, something that people persistently ignore.
More info on arming Saddam: here and here (yes the latter is Iranian but read the source articles and make up your own mind).
It is also important to note the massive civilian deaths caused BOTH before and after the fall of Saddam by first sanctions, then civil war. Everyone focuses on civilian deaths post March 2003 (estimates of over 1 million), but not all of these are the responsibility of the Coalition, at least not directly. The Iraq civil war (can't believe it was anything else) which appears to have been a proxy war with both the West and Iran meddling in the conflict, is probably responsible for the majority of deaths.
Arguably, the even greater (and totally overlooked) crime was the so-called 'sanctions' against Iraq between 1990 and 2003. These, in combination with bombs and DU poisoning, is estimated to have killed over 1 million people, by multiple accounts.
So Iraq is getting back on its feet after 25 years of conflict and poverty. The country should not be poor; it was in fact prosperous pre-Iran war. It wasn't poor only because of Saddam, though; the UN and the American elite (globalists) are responsible for maybe 2 million dead and economic destruction in this otherwise wealthy oil-exporting nation, as well as being responsible for Saddam's ascent in the first place.
At this point I need to deal with the classic myth 'the surge worked'. See the interview with Ray McGovern. And why is Iraq staying relatively calm? "Sadr confirms extension of Mahdi Army cease-fire" Why? Because Iran, his backers, are telling him to! Why else? And if al-Sadr isn't continuing the war, Iraq looks peaceful and there is pressure on the coalition to pull out.
If the stated aim of the Iraq invasion was to liberate Iraq from tyrants, then the biggest tyrants they will need to get rid of are the coalition and their masters. Preferably peaceably. When the Iraqi government says it wants the coalition out, is when it is time to leave (oops! That's already happened!)
But with the Obama betrayal, troops will be staying in Iraq for everandever, probably. Or at least, there is no end in sight. Maybe McCain's '100 years' wasn't that far off?

And You Tell Me There's No Suppressed Technology?
It's another of those 'conspiracy theories' that good citizens don't notice. Imagine the standard of living if all the secret technology was released to the public...we'd be "free and independent" as JFK said! No more poverty anywhere! Can you imagine being sick enough to withhold such technology from society just to maintain your position of control? (Bearing in mind that we don't know just how much technological capability is being withheld, because, duh, it's secret.) What did Nikola Tesla really develop?
Individual Liberty? But that's "selfish"!
No, we need to look after each other voluntarily without having a government do all that at gunpoint. Sounds absurd at first but soon you realise that the reason it sounds so is because of the very unfree nature of our current existence. Envision greater possibilities! Ok, some kind of massive wake-up would be needed before this kind of free, responsible, uncontrollable society could emerge. And that's what we are seeing day by day in the world - a massive waking up of the previously enslaved masses (including myself I must add!)
