Sectarian murder spree continues : three more bodies found shot to death in various parts of Bagdad tuesday
In a dispatch posted at 8:30pm Baghdad time Tuesday night, the Yaqen News Agency reported that the puppet police had recovered the bodies of three more victims of sectarian murder that had been dumped in various parts of Baghdad.
Yaqen reported a source in the puppet police as saying that two bodies were found on the ar-Rusafah side of eastern Baghdad and one in al-Karakh in the west.  All the victims had been bound, blindfolded and shot.
The Shi‘i sectarian militias are pressing ahead with sectarian abductions, torture, and murder of Sunnis in an effort to “cleanse” Baghdad and vast swaths of Iraqi territory to the south and east of Sunnis.   The bloody sectarian campaign is aimed at implementation of plans to partition Iraq drawn up by Zionist and American think tanks.
The idea of “the dissolution of Iraq into a Shi‘ite state, a Sunni state and the separation of the Kurdish part” was voiced by veteran Zionist military correspondent Ze’ev Schiff in Ha'aretz on2 June 1982 and was a part of the divide-and-rule strategy laid out by Zionist writer Oded Yinon in his “Strategy for Israel in the 1980s,” published in Kivunim (Directions), A Journal for Judaism and Zionism, published by the World Zionist Organization in occupied Jerusalem in February 1982.  (It was translated by the late anti-Zionist writer and activist Israel Shahak and is widely available.)
The idea of splitting the Shi‘ah in Iraq from the rest of the country was a cornerstone of the neo-Conservative strategy laid out in “A Clean Break” a paper drawn up by American Zionist government officials Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, David Wurmser, and Paul Wolfowitz in 1996 for the then Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  Then in 2000 the neo-Conservative Project for a New American Century wrote Rebuilding America’s Defenses on the basis of the “Clean Break.”
The American version of the strategy for a partition of Iraq appeared in the article “The Three-State Solution” published in The New York Times on 25 November 2003 by Leslie Gelb (President Emeritus of the US Council on Foreign Relations).  The same idea was reiterated, this time with “bi-partisan support” in the article by Gelb and US Democratic Senator Joseph Biden in “Unity through Autonomy in Iraq,” in The New York Times on 1 May 2006.
Then on 8 October 2006 the London Sunday Times reported that the partition of Iraq along religious and ethnic lines was one of the suggestions that the Baker-Hamilton commission was advancing.

US, puppet regime tropps target collaborators in tuesday morning raid

Later, in a dispatch posted at 4:17pm Yaqen reported that the puppet police commander for Diyala Province had announced that his forces had arrested the commander of the collaborationist “popular awakening committees” in Buhriz along with three of his aids on charges that they were tied to “armed groups.”

The collaborationist “popular awakening committees” were formed by the US in an effort to draw tribal elements to its side by claiming that their targets were only al-Qa‘idah and not the Iraqi Resistance.  Accordingly, “Awakening” committees at times consist of individuals that had been taking part in Iraqi Resistance activities.  In practice, however, the US then uses the “Awakening” councils against all Resistance activity, not only al-Qa‘idah.
