Why We’re Really In Iraq

Victor Ostrovsky, who was a former Israeli Mossad agent describes in his book, The Other Side Of Deception (Harper Collins Publishers 1995), the situation of U.S. military commitment in the Middle East on behalf of a foreign nation.

Victor Ostrovsky was raised in Isreal, but was born in Canada, where he now resides. At eighteen, he became the youngest officer in the Israeli military, rising to the rank of lieutenant commander in charge of naval weapons testing. He was a Mossad case officer from 1984 to 1986.

“What the Mossad really feared was that Iraq’s gigantic army, which had survived the Iran-Iraq war and was being supplied by the west and financed by Saudi Arabia, would fall into the hands of a leader who might be more palatable to the West and still be a threat to Isreal.” (p.315)

“By January 1989, the Mossad LAP machine was busy portraying Saddam as a tyrant and a danger to the world. The Mossad activated every asset it had, in every place possible, from volunteer agents in Amnesty International to fully bought members of the U.S. Congress. Saddam had been killing his own people, the cry went; what could his enemies expect? The gruesome photos of dead Kurdish mothers clutching their dead babies after a gas attack by Saddam’s army were real, and the acts were horrendous. But, the Kurds were entangled in an all-out guerrilla war with the regime in Baghdad and had been supported for years by the Mossad, who sent arms and advisers to the mountain camps of the Barazany family; this attack by the Iraqis could hardly be called an attack on their own people.” (p. 315-316)

“The media was supplied with inside information and tips from reliable sources on how the crazed leader of Iraq killed people with his bare hands and used missiles to attack Iranian cities. What they neglected to tell the media was that most of the targeting for the missiles was done by Mossad with the help of American satellites. The Mossad was grooming Saddam for a fall, but not his own. They wanted the Americans to do the work of destroying that gigantic army in the Iraqi desert so that Isreal would not have to face it one day on its own border. That in itself was a noble cause for an Isreali, but to endanger the world with the possibility of global war and the deaths of thousands of Americans was sheer madness.” (p. 316)
