Blair makes surprise Iraqi visit; calls invasion test of anti-terror fight

 

By ED JOHNSON

 

BASRA, Iraq (AP) - The invasion of Iraq was a test case in the global fight against terror, British Prime Minister Tony Blair said Sunday while making a surprise visit to British troops.

 

Meanwhile, his top envoy in the country warned of bigger, more sophisticated attacks by the Iraqi resistance.

 

In Tikrit on Sunday, an American soldier was shot and wounded during a foot patrol, said Maj. Josslyn Aberle, a spokeswoman for the U.S. army's 4th Infantry Division. He was in stable condition, she added.

 

Blair, who faced strong opposition at home for supporting the U.S.-led invasion to oust Saddam Hussein, visited the southern city of Basra, the base for some 10,000 British troops, to thank the soldiers and meet with military commanders.

 

"This conflict here was a conflict of enormous importance because Iraq was a test case," he said. "If we backed away from that, we would never be able to confront this threat in the other countries where it exists."

 

 

Blair's representative in Iraq, meanwhile, said that the anti-coalition insurgency is getting more sophisticated and that he expects even bigger strikes in the future.

 

Sir Jeremy Greenstock spoke just days after a 225-kilogram car bomb killed eight people in an upscale restaurant in Baghdad, the capital, and co-ordinated strikes including four car bombs struck the southern city of Karbala on Dec. 27, killing 19 people and wounding more than 170.

 

"The opposition is getting more sophisticated, using bigger bombs and more sophisticated controls," Greenstock said. "We will go on seeing bigger bangs."

 

Greenstock, without explansion, said he believed 75 to 80 per cent of attacks are carried out by Saddam loyalists and the rest by foreign terrorist groups.

 

Blair, who last visited Basra in May, said Saddam Hussein's administration "had a proven record of use of weapons of mass destruction" and that "literally hundreds of thousands of its citizens died in prison camps."

 

The United States and Britain cited Saddam's alleged programs to develop chemical, nuclear and biological weapons as a main justification for the war.

 

No evidence of such weapons has been found, but Blair nonetheless hammered on the issue again Sunday.

 

"No government that owes its position to the will of the people will spend billions of pounds on chemical and biological and nuclear weapons whilst their people live in poverty," Blair said.

 

"Brutal and repressive states that don't actually have the support or consent of their people that are developing weapons which can cause destruction on a massive scale are a huge, huge liability to the whole security of the world," he said.

 

He also referred to "the virus of Islamic extremism that is a perversion of the true faith of Islam."

 

Blair flew into Iraq's second-largest city by military aircraft from the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik, where he was on vacation with his family. A Flash Airlines jet taking off from the resort on Saturday crashed into the sea, killing all 148 people on board. The Egyptian government said the crash was an accident, not terrorism.

 

Blair visited a new police academy in the small town of Az Zubayr, where he watched Iraqi officers conduct self-defence training. He met British police officers and military police from Britain, Denmark, the Czech Republic and Italy.

 

In grey pants, a blue shirt and a navy jacket, Blair made the 10-minute flight to the academy from Basra in a British Army Air Corps Chinook helicopter guarded by rear and side machine-gunners. Basra has been relatively peaceful, with most of Iraq's insurgents operate in Sunni Muslim areas west and north of Baghdad.

 

Later Blair met with the governor of Basra, Judge Wael Abdullatif, at one of Saddam's former palaces, a marble and mosaic expanse that is a base for Britain's 20th Armoured Brigade.

 

Blair's trip follows President George W. Bush's surprise Thanksgiving Day visit on Nov. 27 to Baghdad and a visit by Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar on Dec. 20.

 

He meant it was a test of the world's resolve in their fight against terrorism.

manifest destiny

n.

1. A policy of imperialistic expansion defended as necessary or benevolent.

2. often Manifest Destiny The 19th-century doctrine that the United States had the right and duty to expand throughout the North American continent.

 

I believe it was Theodore Roosevelt who came up w/ this bac when the US Government believed it had the divine right of God, bc that is what "manifest destiny" really is when you look it up according to Roosevelt's own words, to control South America in the guise it was for national security. Manifest Destiny is the reason the US went in and took the Panama Canal. Bush is doing the same thing today, we need to conquer the middle east in teh name of national security...and business, like what the Panama Canal did for American shipping (boats did not have to travel all the way down and around South America when shipping product from the east coast of North America to the west coast) what oil will do for the US economy. Maybe I'm just crazy? But Manifest Destiny is a real thing the US Govt. has already used. Read up on yo' history.

they're gonna have a hard time, as most non americans hate americans, although in terms of culture america pretty much has the rest of the world by the throat.

 

Gambler, that manifest destiny ting makes a lotta sense, another way of putting it is, 'everyone knows the war is for oil'.
