Bottom-Up Democracy, When Sectarianism is Good

Mark Langfan, INN

“About 800 B.C. the village communities of the Homeric Age, which had been founded mainly upon clan organization, began to give way to larger political units. As the need for defense increased, an acropolis or citadel was built on a high location, and a city grew up around it as the seat of government for a whole community. Thus emerged the city-state, the most famous unit of political society developed by the Greeks.”

    (Internet history of the democratic Greek city-state.)

It was reported on 20 May 2013 in al Jazeera that:

    “Tribal leaders in Iraq are warning of war unless the country splits into a federation amid a deadly new wave of apparently sectarian violence. Monday’s attacks across Iraqi cities left at least 77 people dead and more than 248 others injured, officials say, pushing the death toll over the past week to well above 200. On the same day, the pan-Arab newspaper Al-Hayat reported that Sunni protest leaders had called for ‘armed confrontation or the declaration of an [autonomous] region.’”

Western democracy grew from the bottom-up. First, little cities achieved freedom, and then bigger cities became free until one had a free nation.

But while Colonialism brought many good things to many countries, such as modern education and some positive forms of government such as in Bermuda or the Dominican Republic, it brought something horrible to countries like Iraq, where the colonial power drew relatively arbitrary lines making false amalgams of countries that should not exist. In fact, in Iraq, its falsely drawn borders have imposed a false top-down “democracy” that is, in reality, a vile and horrific tyranny that threatens the very existence of the world.
There is no question that Iraq is a puppet of Iran and controlled by Iran in every manner and form. While the mainstream press gives the appearance that Iraq is a separate country, Obama’s unilateral retreat from Iraq handed Iraq to Iran on a “golden platter.” The consequences of this catastrophic Obama mistake will haunt America and the world for a century. One such small consequence is that the “Iranian Sanctions” are meaningless because Iran uses Iraq’s sovereign oil money like its own piggybank. Even the New York Times had to report that Iran is using Iraq to evade sanctions.

To compound the horror, Iran is using Iraq to send at least 10 billion sovereign Iraqi dollars to prop-up the mass-murderer Assad. That was just in 2011; G-d only knows what they’ve given them since.

And, it was just recently reported that not only did al Maliki personally steal 80 billion USD from Iraq’s sovereign treasury, but he gave a good percentage of it directly to Iran.

But al Maliki and Iran aren’t just evil multi-billion-dollar Shiite crooks stealing Arab oil money. With Obama acting as a mid-wife, al Maliki and Iran are inflicting human gross treachery in that, because of the top-down artificial colonial borders that Churchill drew close to a century ago, the Iraqi Shiites and Iran are now the new tyrants of the Iraqi Sunnis.
