    U.S. experts: we have succeeded in toppling Saddam Hussein and failed to establish a democratic regime
    18-03-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

    Washington: Heba Qudsi
    If the United States wants its leadership invasion of Iraq in 2003 the establishment of a democratic Iraq a stable and secure, this is far from the image of Iraq today. Perhaps Statistical published yesterday by the Organization «Arak Body Count» British concerned civilian victims who were killed in Iraq since the invasion confirms this conclusion: at least 112 thousand. And adding military and insurgents, the total death toll by the organization up to about 170 thousand.
    U.S. analysts and experts who spoke to Asharq Al Awsat seem to agree, but varying, that the invasion did not achieve its objectives. Ross Vednys, a former adviser to the U.S. president, acknowledges that the price of getting rid of the former Iraqi president «was a heavy price for Iraqis and Americans alike. Ross adds: «Unfortunately violence is still prevalent and control the sectarian conflict in the formation of policies rather than national interests. Ross continues: «I think it's fair to say that the goal of building a stable democracy is still far.

    David Ottway, a researcher at the Institute of the Woodrow Wilson was more explicit in his passive invasion he says: «I think Bush that the war in Iraq promotes democracy .. Has proven to be either naive or ignorant to a large extent. He believes that Iraq now «less democratic and more violent, sectarian and more authoritarian.

    Still the war on Iraq is more controversial issues within the United States. Today, a decade later, some were still attacked and described the disastrous war, others defend them and considers the need to end the dictatorial regime in the context of the so-called era of former U.S. President George W. Bush 'war on terror'. Al-Sharq al-Awsat polled a number of political experts and academics in Washington about the motives of the United States to wage war on Iraq and the outcome of the war after the passage of a century ago, and their assessment of the situation in Iraq now, and the lessons learned from that war.

    Says a former adviser to the U.S. President for the Middle East Dennis Ross «The decision-makers in the Bush administration looked to Saddam Hussein through the lens of the war on terrorism. They had a belief that they must take a position dramatically in their response to terrorism and supporting terrorism, has I think President Bush and others around him during the months after the Sept. 11 attacks that Saddam Hussein relationship attacks, and even if not proven relationship attacks, the removal of Saddam Hussein's regime ( From the perspective of the Bush administration) was considered a blow against terrorism and to promote stability in the Middle East and to promote the cause of democracy that you did not know the area before.

    Adds Ross «focused U.S. administration under Bush on weapons of mass destruction in Saddam, and this also has been linked to the war on terrorism, and to highlight the concept that it is necessary keep dangerous weapons from the hands of dangerous, but after testing it there were not weapons of mass destruction damaged image administration the motives for the war.

    And the results of the war on Iraq for the United States, says a former adviser to President for the Middle East «Highlights are the demise of Saddam Hussein's regime brutal and oppressive, the killing of Saddam Hussein's regime hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Yes went Saddam Hussein's regime, but the price was too high, and imposed war dearly on Iraq, has led sectarian conflict to tens of thousands of deaths, and tore the country and led to the displacement of a large part of the population, we also (Americans) paid a heavy price of blood and money. Adds Ross, who is currently working researchers Center Washington for Near East Studies «Iraq today has elections and political movement real, but unfortunately violence is still prevalent, and control sectarian conflict in the formation of policies rather than national interests, and re-building Iraq very slowly, still key issues did not find way to being resolved, and I hope to build a successful future Iraq. And confirms Ross «I think that it is difficult to look at Iraq today and talk about the results achieved by the United States from the war, we have relations with the Iraqi government and Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and important sectors of Iraqi society, and continue to work with the Iraqis in the fight against terrorism, but this is not the advantages of the U.S. Nations, but also reflect Iraqi interests, and there are issues we disagree around and we see the same perspective whether Syria or Iran.

    On his assessment of the situation in Iraq now, says Ross «I think it's fair to say that the goal of building a stable democracy in Iraq is still far away, and if the question« Is the United States gave an opportunity for the Iraqi people to achieve it in the future? .. Here would be yes, but in the end was not in the United States' ability to do so, but the Iraqis are the ones who control the future. Ross several raises questions and challenges about the situation in Iraq today, and says «Can Iraqis drafting a national identity and not sectarian identity? The Iraqis built institutions, but do you have a parliamentary and judicial institutions credibility so that the sergeant on the executive branch? Can the power that embraces all political groups? Can Iraq's leaders to resolve the issues of internal borders and the sharing of the country's wealth? All of these questions must be answered, and maybe 10 years from now we will have a better understanding of the type of state that will be by Iraq. Iraq has great potential not have been achieved under the dictatorial rule of Saddam Hussein, and I hope to exploit Iraq's potential away from Iran's influence and his representatives, and to achieve a comprehensive and effective provision, and has a long way to do it.

    And lessons learned from the war on Iraq says Ross «Simply put, the lesson that regime change must come from within, not from the outside, when changing an authoritarian regime - as we saw in general in the Middle East - produces a state of emptiness, and even setting up a system from the inside it is difficult to establish security and governance, but the change of government from the outside makes the issue of legitimacy is questionable essential. He adds «The United States can, and must, to support those debt seeking to change repressive regimes brutal, and if there is lesson comes from Iraq, it is that we should not try to impose change from the outside, and not rely on people who do not have a popular base or credibility at home and reflect on who is able to influence what will come later.

    Agree David Ottaway, a researcher at the Institute of the Woodrow Wilson, that the only goal achieved by the United States from the war in Iraq is to get rid of Saddam Hussein, and says «the only goal achieved by Washington is to get rid of a dictator is terrible, and later became clear that the Bush administration's decision invasion Iraq had disastrous consequences for U.S. policy in the Middle East and the Arab world itself, and led to the formation of a government allied with Iran and isolated from the Arab world, and led to the situation in Iraq on the brink of disintegration, with the direction of Kurdistan to independence more than ever, and the direction of population year insurgency against the government dominated by Shiites, which helped ignite the sectarian conflict between Sunnis and Shiites and engulfing the Levant and the Gulf region now and tearing Syria. Ottaway adds «even today still Obama administration supports Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, a government seeks to impose more authoritarian and sectarian than ever, so as to push the Kurds and Sunnis in Iraq to the insurgency.

    On the situation in Iraq now says Ottaway «I think Bush that the war on Iraq promotes democracy in the Arab world, has proven that he was either naive or ignorant to a large extent, because Iraq is now less democratic and more violent, sectarian and more authoritarian, and still the United States and the Arab world suffer consequences of Bush's war resolution on Iraq ten years ago.

    In turn, suggests Barbara Slavin, senior researcher at the Center of South Asia at the Atlantic Institute, that the war on Iraq was not worth the high price incurred by the Americans and the Iraqis, and says «likes to be considered at the full picture as a cautionary story .. How can rush superpower blinded fear and manipulation by small faction within the U.S. national security and become arrogant power? ».

    Says researcher Center Atlantic about the situation in Iraq today «Iraq fought elections relatively free, but Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki since 2006 inspired a lot of properties dictatorship of his predecessors, and instead of dictatorship Sunni became Iraq's dictatorship Shiite, is still violence and corruption Mschrien».

    The Slavin that fallout painful for the war on Iraq is that brought President-elect Barack Obama to power, and reflected on his policies cautious today toward the Middle East, and look reactions Obama exaggeration more in response to the intervention force in Syria despite the insurgency came from the Syrians themselves, not from the outside .

    After «partnership» .. Kurdish Shiite rivalry threatens Iraq's unity
    18-03-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

    Erbil: Shirzad Shaikhani
    Although the Kurdish leaders were the first rushed to Baghdad after the fall of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein for the Administration of the country from there in partnership with the rest of the political forces that supported the U.S. effort to overthrow this regime but with the growing ambitions of some Shi'ite leaders and affected Bmgriaat judgment which tried for the first time in their political history, as well as Kurdish leaders, those relations worsened and are sometimes just around the corner from the civil war.
    On the whole concentrated most important outstanding issues between the province and the center on three main points, the first is Article 140 of the Constitution on the normalization of the status of Kirkuk and other disputed territories. Suffered during the reign of the former Baathist regime to policies multilateral focus whole on the issue of Arabization Kurdish areas, and the displacement of residents outside the county, and change the borders previous management, and after the fall of the former regime sought Kurds to install material law the State Administration for the transitional period known Article 58 provides for addressing the problem of Kirkuk , and after several months and while co-Kurdish draft a new constitution for Iraq, immobilized substance of this trend in the Constitution known to Article 140, which stipulates the completion of three successive stages to resolve the issue of Kirkuk begin to normalize their situation and administrative re its map geographic to what it was before the arrival of the Baath regime to power, then the organization census year to see the population size of the components of the national preserve (the Kurds, Turkmen and Arabs) and then the final stage is holding a national referendum to determine the fate of the province by population, any choice between staying as mayor within the center, or enroll in the Kurdistan Region.

    Since the Constitution Select a time limit for the implementation of that article does not exceed six months from the date of ratification of the Constitution, but after that lagged central governments previous implementation of that article for political reasons and sometimes for bargaining Kurdish leadership, remained this article after more than seven years without implementation, This calls Turkmen and Arabs who oppose the basis of that article to be considered constitutional article dead and expired, but the Kurdish leadership is still insisting on its implementation.

    According to Chuan Daoudi, who is president of the Foundation «ee and the media and vice-captain in the Kurdistan Journalists« This article can not be implemented at present and in the future. Daoudi adds that he was primarily an educator Kurdish residents of Kirkuk against the inclusion of this article to the Iraqi constitution, and that he saw the mines and formulations can not be implemented on the ground. The second axis of the problems the region with the center is the question of the Peshmerga and also shows the team Jabbar Yawar Secretary General of the Ministry of Peshmerga and spokesman Forces Command Guard Region «These forces became part of the defense system of Iraq according to the fifth paragraph of Article 121 of the Iraqi Constitution, which stipulates that the Peshmerga forces Kurdish forces are the protection of the Kurdistan region, and called led forces Guard Region, and will be part of the defense system in Iraq, but previous governments did not deal with these forces as required by the Constitution, since more than six years not spend federal government budget of the Peshmerga, as refrain from processing and arming, and this is contrary to the Constitution, because any force be within the system the Iraqi defense will have the right equipment and armament like the rest of the hardware and configurations, security and military, but that did not happen yet, so become a matter of Peshmerga part of the outstanding issues between Erbil and Baghdad ». Asked about expectations for the future of this problem and whether there is a chance to resolve it said Yawar «there are no clear prospects are promising, because our meetings كقيادات Peshmerga with leaders of Iraqi military stopped completely for more than a month and a half, and the problems between the region and the center is moving towards more complex, and subdivided them Other problems, the overall situation in Iraq crisis in general, and therefore not on the horizon any indicator or a positive signal to solve our problem this relationship with the federal government.

    The third and most important in the problems of the region and the center is the oil contracts concluded by the regional government and the central government opposes. And the Government of the Territory recently dared to export large amounts of oil abroad through Kurdistan Turkey claiming traded oil derivatives by the Baghdad government stopped processing provinces of the region. Government intends region D pipeline oil directly from Kurdistan to Turkey to export its oil to the outside, and this is what angered the federal government which has warned Turkey against taking such a step, in light of the relationship Tense originally between Iraq and Turkey because of harboring former Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi sentenced in absentia death in Iraq.

    While talking MP House of Representatives and member of the Commission on oil and energy and natural resources council Dr. Bayazid Hassan for lack of oil contracts concluded by the regional government to the required transparency, it has blamed the central government, which he said «The mentality Central still control some prominent leaders, and this is contrary to the foundations of the constitution
