Is a Hidden Hand Destabilizing Iraq?

CIA Mockingbird Asset NYT Pushes Color Revolution Coup Attempt in Iraq


By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, for Crescent International

I wrote this article two weeks ago. Since then, it has become abundantly clear that its thesis is correct. -KB

In early October, violent protests broke out in Baghdad and other Iraqi cities. Some of them degenerated into all-out riots. Eight members of the security forces and almost 100 civilians were killed, and more than 5,000 wounded. At the time of this writing (October 21), the situation is beginning to flare up again as the Arba‘in pilgrimage winds down.

The protestors decry economic stagnation and corruption — two very real problems. But circumstantial evidence, including the timing and context of the protests, the Saudi origins of much of its social media support network, and the targeting of relatively independent Prime Minister ‘Adil ‘Abd al-Mahdi less than a year into his term, suggest that American-Zionist colonial forces may be indulging in their usual color-revolution-style shenanigans…

  1. Dear Kevin, I fully agree with you and with Magnier. But i think there is another reason, the fact that earlier in August, the representative of Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba during a visit to Tehran said that Harakat can overthrow any Iraqi government within 3 days. The current protests, which involve Baathists, shirazists, Gulf States, Zionists and the United States, is not only anti-Abdel Mahdi character, but also including against Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujab, maybe even to a greater extent. I think that the current coup attempt by the Iraqi intelligence and those who helped him from the government (maybe Salih, if word Qais al-Khazali — true), it is also a kind of response to the words of the representative of Harakat.

  2. Boom! What an amazing thesis! Only a truly agile, advanced mind could look at Shia-on-Shia political protests in Iraq, reference the hidden hand of Saudi Arabia, and conclude it must all be due to American Zionist nefarious actors. Wow! Consider my mind blown.

    Obviously the people of Iraq don’t have the ability to make their own decisions regarding their government. They’re all just gullible fools being manipulated by the “AmeriZios” (?). If the people of Iraq read Barrett’s work I’m sure they’d give him an award for so succinctly conveying the truth of their idiocy to VT’s broader audience.

  3. Amazing analys from Kevin. Big thanks. I would like to add one more point.
    This is part from article. «As Magnier points out, The recent decisions of Abdel Mahdi made him extremely unpopular with the US. He has declared Israel responsible for the destruction of the five warehouses of the Iraqi security forces, Hashd al-Shaabi, and the killing of one commander on the Iraqi-Syrian borders. He opened the crossing at al-Qaem bet-ween Iraq and Syria to the displeasure of the US embassy in Baghdad, whose officers expressed their discomfort to Iraqi officials. He expressed his willingness to buy the S-400 and other military hardware from Russia. Abdel Mahdi agreed with China to reconstruct essential infrastructure in exchange for oil, and gave a $284 million electricity deal to a German rather than an American company. The Iraqi Prime Minister refused to abide by US sanctions and is still buying electricity from Iran and allowing the exchange of commerce that is bringing large amounts of foreign currency and boosting the Iranian economy. And lastly, Abdel Mahdi rejected the “Deal of the Century” proposed by the US: he is trying to mediate between Iran and Saudi Arabia and therefore is showing his intention to keep away from the US objectives and policies in the Middle East.»
