Mark Glenn's article charges that that the U.S. and the UK in coordination with the Israeli Mossad have been responsible for lubricating if not forcing civil war and ethnic conflict on post Saddam Iraq.
While the article doesn’t claim definitive documentation, its argument is plausible, fits with the observable data and adds to other evidence that the coalition forces have been fighting a dirty war from the beginning of the occupation.

Things Not What They Appear in Iraq
By Mark Glenn

Disturbing new revelations indicate that at least some of the so-called ''terrorist" activity in Iraq is being deliberately orchestrated by those working to further the Israeli agenda in the Middle East, specifically by Israel's Mossad and the CIA..
In a recent article appearing in the online journal heyetnet.org, a former Iraqi military official claims that over several years he took part in U.S.-ordered assassinations and bomb attacks targeting Iraqi civilians. According to his testimony the reason for these attacks was to foment sectarian and religious hatred that would eventually lead to the situation as it exists in Iraq today, which is civil war.
The 'individual refused to be identified by name, as he has since fled from the Americans to an area where he hopes not to be found. According to his testimony, he was a soldier in the Iraqi army during the first Gulf war and afterwards went to Saudi Arabia seeking asylum. It was in Saudi Arabia that the Americans recruited him. He was then taken to America where he received military training, courses in English and instruction in other skills, such as assassinations.
During the 2003 invasion and subsequent war, he was brought back to Iraq for-the purpose of carrying out specific tasks assigned him by U.S. intelligence agencies. In particular, he was supposed to "spread chaos in the ranks of the Iraqi army" through the use of rumors and. disinformation. According to him, this operation in psychological warfare was one of the reasons for the rapid collapse of the Iraqi forces.
Later, his skills as an assassin and terrorist were brought to bear. He and his team were provided with names, pictures and maps of the daily movements of persons whose deaths were necessary to plunge Iraq into civil war. Sometimes the target was a Shiite, sometimes a Sunni. Mistakes were not tolerated, and those who failed in their mission were executed.
The former collaborator said that the Americans have a unit for what he called “dirty jobs.” That unit is a mix of Iraqis, Americans and other foreigners whose identity he did not specify. This unit specializes in planting bombs in cars, neighborhoods and markets. According to him, the most common way of doing this was with bombs that were placed inside cars as they are being searched at 'checkpoints’ without the driver knowing about it or during interrogations.
"After someone is summoned to one of the U.S. bases, a bomb is placed in his car and he is asked to drive to a police station or a market for some purpose and there his car is blown up," he said.
This testimony is consistent with other reports in both mainstream, and independent media that have alleged similar circumstances. In a story run by several mainstream news agencies including the BBC, in September 2005 two British soldiers of the SAS branch (special forces) were arrested after firing their automatic weapons into a group of Iraqi policemen. The Iraqis found in their car explosives, detonators, Arab clothing and wigs for, disguise. After the two were arrested, the British military - supposed to be aligned with the Iraqi police forces-staged a dramatic "rescue" that involved busting down the walls of the prison in which the two were being held.
In another case reported by Iraqi physicist and writer Imad Khadduri, an Iraqi man had his license confiscated at an American checkpoint and. was told to report to an American military camp near Baghdad airport in order to retrieve it. After being questioned for half an hour, he was told that in order to get his license back he would have to drive to another police station across town. Upon beginning his trek, he noticed two things: His cat felt like it was loaded down with something and there was a low flying helicopter hovering overhead everywhere he went. After stopping the car and doing a quick inspection he found that his trunk was full of explosives, presumably put there by the Americans while he was being interrogated in the building nearby.
Another similar scenario reported by Khadduri tells of a man driving an explosives-laden car headed for the police station only to have his car break down. Upon taking it to a mechanic, he found that it was a bomb on wheels.
As the world watches the daily carnage taking place in Iraq with religious and ethnic groups at each other's throats, what must be remembered is that none of this
should be a surprise. Prior to the first Gulf war in 1991, pro-Israeli think tanks and policy papers, such as those by the Project For A New American Century, spoke candidly about destroying Iraq through civil war so that it could be broken up into smaller, easier-to-manage states with leaders amenable to the agenda of Israel.
With this latest revelation it is ever more clear that not all is as it seems in Iraq, but then, why should it? After all, it is the motto of Israel's intelligence service Mossad that "By way of deception, thou shalt do war."
