The Iraq Crisis

ISIS984 words

Translation: German, Polish, Slovak

For White Nationalists, the unfolding debacle in Iraq certainly proves the old German adage, “Schadenfreude ist die schönste Freude.” For we were right about pretty much everything, and we told them so.

Saddam’s Iraq was no threat to the US. Under Saddam, Al-Qaeda did not exist in Iraq. Today, an Al-Qaeda offshoot controls one third of the country. The US war on Iraq was based on lies cooked up and propagated by Jews and their tools to trick the US into spending more than 2 trillion dollars and countless lives destroying one of Israel’s enemies.

The idea of democratizing Iraq was folly, since Iraqis are not a nation, but merely a patchwork of tribes divided by religion (Sunni, Shia, Christian) and ethnicity (Kurds, Arabs, Turkmen). Such a society can only be held together by a dictator, and due to Iraq’s low-trust, nepotistic culture, such dictatorships inevitably turn into the imperial rule of the dictator’s tribe and religious group over the rest of the country. This is true of Saddam Hussein’s regime, and it is true of the “democratic” regime of Shi’ite-chauvinist Nouri al-Maliki.

Iraq is a test case in the failure of ethnic and religious diversity in one state. All multiculturalist, pacifist, one-world, cosmopolitan, and imperialist ventures lead to hatred and bloodshed. Thus the only realistic basis for peace and human brotherhood — to the limited extent they are even possible — is ethnonationalism: the creation of homogeneous societies for all peoples on ethnic, cultural, and religious (since Islam is an inherently political religion) lines.

Thus the best outcome for Iraq is partition: the Kurds deserve their own state in the north, and the Arab lands need to be partitioned between the Sunni and Shia. (Other ethnic and religious groups are too small to hope for anything but tolerance.) This partition could have come about in an orderly, peaceful, and humane fashion if the world were run on ethnonationalist principles. But this world is run by evil and foolish men, so partition will be accomplished instead though chaos, war, and unspeakable cruelty. But the partition will come. (ISIS will probably stall, and the Shi’ite army will probably rally, when the battle reaches Shi’ite areas.)

Of course the fools in Washington don’t get it. For instance, Hillary Clinton, who is apparently running for president of Iraq, piously explained that Maliki and the Shi’ite majority should strive to be more inclusive of minorities. Because white Americans all know that unreciprocated gestures of good will to resentful minorities are the key to building utopia.

ISIS also proves another point that White Nationalists are right about, namely that history is still full of surprises. Not even in my most cynical dreams did I expect to wake up and find that one third of Iraq was in the hands of an al-Qaeda offshoot — and that every friend of the United States in that region had a bullet in his head, or no head at all — and that this was the work of a vast, well-organized, and well-funded organization that I, and most of the world, had never heard of 8 hours earlier.

Now, of course, we are inundated with information about ISIS, including a great deal of alleged intelligence about its funding, which we are told is entirely indigenous and has nothing to do with state sponsorship.

I’m not buying it. ISIS obviously enjoys state sponsorship, probably from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and probably from the United States as well, since our policy has been to suppress al-Qaeda types in Iraq and support al-Qaeda types in Syria, on the dubious assumption that none of our aid would cross the wholly arbitrary and porous border between the two countries.

In American politics, it is axiomatic that those who care about American interests, even a little, do not think long-term, and those who do think long-term are working to sacrifice American interests to Israel.

This should throw some light on the surprising voices against US intervention on the Right, for instance from David Frum and Glenn Beck. Of course the loudest voice against US intervention has been Israel, since the emergence of ISIS creates a common interest between the US and Iran, which is the main ally of Iraq’s Shi’ite government. Israel, of course, wishes for the United States to destroy Iran, so the last thing it wants is any kind of co-operation between the two countries in Iraq.

However, if the US stays out of Iraq, Iran will almost certainly go in, which might allow Jews to engineer a war between the US and Iran down the line. The Saudis would also be screaming for US intervention in such a scenario. After all, it is easy to sell Americans on memes like, “We can’t allow Iran to control Iraq’s oil,” just like we could not allow Saddam to control Kuwait’s oil way back when.

The natural inclination of every American White Nationalist is to look at the present crisis and decide on a course of action based on US interests, as if this were a serious country. As if this were our country. In which case, the right policy is to do nothing. Which was the right course more than ten years ago, when this country was swindled into the last Iraq war.

But at some point, it should dawn on us that America is no longer a serious country. It is certainly no longer our country. Instead, it is just a tool of international Jewry and international capital — a monster that brings misery to our people and the rest of the planet. Thus any policies that are good for America are bad for the white race and the world at large. This is definitely a case of “worse is better.” A third Iraq War might just finish this country. And if America is headed down that road, white Americans should be the last ones trying to save it.

    Good observations. It’s worth noting also how quickly Iran climbed in with the US government. That is something certain people in our sector ought to reflect on.

    “I’m not buying it. ISIS obviously enjoys state sponsorship, probably from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and probably from the United States as well”

    Yes, although I think the US sponsorship is more by omission now. The neocons created a Sunni-Shia civil war which has now taken on a life of its own funded by the gulf states with the US as a bystander.

    My guess is the Israelis have given up on the US attacking Iran so they’re going to try and use the Sunni Arabs to do it instead. I don’t think they’ve told the neocons what the new strategy is yet and so they are still working on the old plan.

    I have no idea what’s best for us in this apart from using it as an opportunity to attack the neocons for the original wars to undermine their influence a little and promote isolationism.

    An isolationist US helps nationalists in Europe and nationalists in Europe doing well eventually helps WN outside Europe.

    The idiot thing most whites dont realise is, why settle for Israel when you can have the world? Israel is expendable. It always was.

    One aspect of the Iraq war that is kept quiet is the rising number of private contractors (mercenaries) killed in Iraq. While the government will proudly point that the number of soldiers killed in Iraq has gone down to zero, nothing is mentioned about the number of mercenaries killed in Iraq, which I think are being funded by the CIA. If you are interested in the number of military casualties go to If you are interested in the number of mercenaries, google, “Number of civilian contractors killed in Iraq so far.”

    A very wise assessment. Ending the pre-eminent role of the Anglo-American Zionist order in world affairs is a necessary step to our victory. A new Intervention in Iraq means tipping he balance in favor of Scottish Independence this September. Also, as Greg points out, preempting the Casus Belli of Iranian troops marching into Arab/Sunni territories.

    US troop’s morale was severely eroded in 06/07 in Bagdhad when one week their brothers were being killed by the Sadr’s Mahdi Army, and the next week they were allying with these forces. These men are focused on honor and cannot tolerate what seems to them like flip-flopping without honor. American White Nationalists cannot have final victory without a serious percentage of combat forces siding with them against these elites who have no honor. Also, it is a hard pill to swallow, but delayed recovery for Europe, which will be directly tied to rising oil prices, will help build resentment against the right-left combine of race traitors.

    In unrelated news, we should also hope Europeans do not win the World Cup since that might give a false sense of contentment to the masses of men who are the prime target of Our Enemies.

    Don’t forget to rub this in the faces of all your neocon acquaintances who were screaming worship of Bush 10 years ago. Rub it in and make fun of them. Don’t let them pass it off on the current president, bring it back to them and mock them until they break. Do to them what they did to you.

    hhaha haha! the story I had heard about the mystical Middle east, of the frog and the scorpion conjures up the present situation in that region. Both happened to be on the west side of the Suez Canal, when the scorpion asked the frog to cross the canal to go on the east side because he couldn’t swim. The frog replied that he shouldn’t try because the scorpion might sting him while on his back crossing the canal! But after some coercion the scorpion persuaded the frog to help him swim the canal. After they managed to get across, somehow the scorpion accidentally stung the frog. The frog, before he expired asked the scorpion why did he do that?
    The scorpion replied, “don’t you know we are in the Middle east”!

    The lesson here is that that in this region none of the parties trust one another and that today’s enemies could become tomorrow’s enemies and past enemies could become today’s friends!

    Excellent essay. Only this reader feels that the last paragraph needs some discussion.

    In the final paragraph, it seems that the word “America” is used to express two different concepts. There is the America that is white man’s country. This is the America that built the railroads, developed the vaccines, went to the moon, defeated the Communists, ended slavery, etc. This is Our America. The other half of the “America” concept is the minority occupation government that currently occupies Capitol Hill. This force has been there since FDR and its first successful forays into parasiting Our America was during the Administration of President Taft.

    One can support the former America while rejecting the latter with a clear conscience. Muttering about “the government” while hiding in a cabin awaiting the collapse is a less effective strategy than positive, proactive engagement.

    With that in mind, doing nothing might be a bit of an off-statement. I propose the following ideas.

    1. Agreed, large scale military action is likely a bad idea, this should be limited to supporting our interests through proxies only. Doing nothing in this regard is a good idea.

    2. America, (Our America) should stop supporting the Syrian Jihadist Rebels immediately and allow the Syrian Alawite/Orthodox faction to end the conflict. At the same time we cannot allow our former supported Jihadists entry in to Europe or North America. We can’t do a Hmong Refugee Airlift Part II stupidity since those Jihadist “freedom fighters” will attack us as soon as anyone else.

    3. America (Our America) needs to recognize that our Sunni Allies such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia are as manipulative, cunning, and burdensome as Israel. The Saudis are only less worthless than the other two because they have oil.

    4. It is time to make a cautious rapprochement with Iran. While they are Muslims, they are also white Indo-Europeans. In my travels, I’ve found that I’ve been able to “feel the minds” in the Kipling sense of Iranians so much easier than Presbyterian South Korean allies(?) or my fellow Jewish citizens or those Arab allies(?) I met while in Iraq. With that in mind, we should also be aware that white Indo-European’s most dangerous enemy is often another white Indo-European.

    It is important to talk about some strategy amongst ourselves. While it appears that the “United States of Israel” is a powerful force, often institutions appear most powerful when their foundations are collapsing. Things can change quickly-it could very well be that a Counter Currents reader will soon be sitting in the halls of power thinking about what decision to make among a collection several bad options.

    Francis Parker Yockey declared America “The Enemy of Europe.” It is about time it collapsed. Of course I did not expect the world to get even crazier, but here it is. A well written and succinct essay Greg.

    Dear Dr. Johnson,

    Great essay. It’s why many of us come here to read. Over at AmRen they’re having a series on what America will be in 2034. Richard Spencer and Gregory Hood have written articles for them. I was wondering if perhaps you could write an article on what you think America will be in 2034? I’m sure many of the readers would find it worthwhile.
