2 days earlier!? What kind of sovereignty Iraqi have?

On Monday, Bush announced that the Iraqi regain their sovereignty two days earlier. It supposed to have the sovereignty transfer on 30 June (Wednesday) but due to the resistance from the Iraqi people. The US administrators and the new Prime Minister Iyad Allawi of Iraq in a secretive ceremony in order to thwart insurgents' attempts at undermining the transfer.

The current quagmire in Iraq and the the strong criticism by the people of the world on the war on Iraq by US. The sovereignty transfer is a fake. The US try to deceive the Iraqi and the people of the world by the transfer.

According to the statement by Prof Jose Maria Sison, General Consultant for the International League of Peoples' Struggle (ILPS):

The US cannot extricate itself from the Iraqi quagmire of its own making by setting up the puppet Iraqi interim government to replace the puppet Iraqi Governing Council. The much-hyped transfer of “sovereignty” from the US invaders and occupiers is a big hoax and cannot deceive anyone. The US should recall that it could never prettify its criminal role as an imperialist aggressor in Vietnam by using one type of puppet government after another. The US and its allies will not get out of Iraq through the establishment of the so-called interim government. They will get out only as a result of the victorious advance of the revolutionary armed resistance of the Iraqi people for national liberation and democracy.

Prof Sison also revealed that the purposes of the US present in the Iraq after the sovereignty transfer. It resistance should be continue and fight for the liberation for the Iraqi people

The US is so flagrantly hell-bent on holding on to the fruits of its criminal war of aggression against the people of Iraq. It wants to control and own the oil resources of Iraq in order to tighten its grip on the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. It wants to keep 14 US military bases and more than 135,000 US troops in Iraq order to control the entire Middle East, allow Israel to slaughter the Palestinian people and humiliate all the Arab people. It is monopolizing all kinds of business priivileges and contracts, especially reconstruction contracts and military sales, in order to appropriate the oil resources and income of Iraq.

The US embassy under the new American proconsul John Negroponte of Phoenix Plan notoriety will have more than 3000 personnel to oversee and direct all activities of the puppet government. The US is all chicanery as it pretends to get multilateral support for the puppet government even while tightening its control over it. It aims to privatize the profitable state assets of Iraq and push “economic reforms” to favor US monopoly firms. It plans to build a puppet army under tight US command and control. It will continue to carry out its horrific actions of destroying Iraqi lives and property on a massive scale under the pretext of anti-terrorism.

Thus, don't need to be happy with the transfer of the sovereignty. Even the Iraqi people also feel they still under the occupation. It was only the propaganda of the US imperialism. They are doing something to rationale their persent and the occupation in different places in the world. There will be no peace if the US Bush Administration continue such an unilateral foreign policies.

Keep on the struggle for the national liberation!
