Iraq History
The Republic of Iraq, once the historic site of Mesopotamia, is home to a rich and distinct variety of social groups, cultures and religions. Although the modern state is relatively young, Iraq boasts an exceptionally long and tumultuous history spanning more than 8,000 years. Following three debilitating wars and years of economic and political sanctions, democratic Iraq has now emerged as an active member of the international community.
Some of the world’s greatest ancient civilizations developed here and like many Arab countries, it embraces and honors the achievements of its past and maintains its strong tribal culture.    The cultural formation of Iraq was distinguished for its originality and continuity, which gave its civilizations a uniformity of its own. This partly explains why it was a focal point from which radiated sciences and arts that contributed to the progress of many parts of the world.
   Iraq was one of the first regions in the world to create the bases of cultural and social stability. 8000 years ago, in the Neolithic age, villages were set up where man learnt farming, animal husbandry, house building, weaving, pottery, and even the making of art objects by painting and sculpture.

The land now known as Iraq has been called the Cradle of Civilization. The ancient Sumerians, Babylonians, and Assyrians all developed great empires in the region between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. At later times, it was ruled by the Greeks, the Romans, the Persians, and the Ottoman Turks. Under the Abbasid rulers (750-1258), Baghdad became a center of learning for the entire Muslim world. But the Mongols invaded the region in 1258, leading to its decline. The Ottoman Turks, after a long struggle, won Baghdad and the Tigris and Euphrates Valley from Persia in 1638. The region remained a part of the vast Ottoman Empire until the end of World War I, in 1918. Creation of Iraq.

    IRAQ: History
    Tom Grey sends us this "excellent article by a Princeton professor: Below is just a portion, much of the article involves Islam as a counter to Western imposed statist systems. Author cautiously optimistic.
    In 1940, the French government accepted defeat and signed a separate peace with the Third Reich. The French colonies in Syria and Lebanon remained under Vichy control, and were therefore open to the Nazis to do what they wished. They became major bases for Nazi propaganda and activity in the Middle East. The Nazis extended their operations from Syria and Lebanon, with some success, to Iraq and other places. That was the time when the Baath Party was founded, as a kind of clone of the Nazi and Fascist parties, using very similar methods and adapting a very similar ideology, and operating in the same way as part of an apparatus of surveillance that exists under a one-party state, where a party is not a party in the Western democratic sense, but part of the apparatus of a government. That was the origin of the Baath Party. When the Third Reich collapsed, and after an interval was replaced by the Soviet Union as the patron of all anti-Western forces, the adjustment from the Nazi model to the Communist model was not very difficult and was carried throughout without problems. That is where the present Iraqi type of government comes from. As I said before, it has no roots in the authentic Arabic or Islamic past. It is, instead, part of the most successful and most harmful process of Westernization to have occurred in the Middle East...."

British and US interests were fixed on Iraq after early discoveries of petroleum there, and the US succeeded in pressuring Great Britain to share petroleum rights in Iraq. In 1931, Iraq became independent with a pro-British regime under King Feisal and Nuri-as-Said. A pro-Axis coup in 1941 Saddam Hussein Algiers accord of that year had supposedly settled the dispute. The Shah withdrew support for the Kurdish revolt, which collapsed. However, the agreement was not honored in full and Iran did not return all the land that Iraq considered to be its own.

Arabs were needless to say upset by this secret agreement when it was published by the Russian government in 1917. British forces invaded Mesopotamia and occupied Baghdad; Iraq became British Mandate Great Britain uses systematic aerial bombardment for first time in history to put down rebellions in Iraq. British Colonial Office draws line across Southern Iraq creating Kuwait to prevent Iraq access to Persian Gulf Iraq joins League of Nations and recognized as sovereign state Late 1940s - after WWII British power begins to wane and America steps in. George Kennan , U.S. State Department stated in 1948," The US has about 50% of the world's wealth but only 6.3% of its population. In this situation we cannot fail to be the object of envy and resentment. Our real task in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity without positive detriment to our national security. To do so we will have to dispense with all sentimentality and daydreaming, and our attention will have to be concentrated everywhere on our immediate national objectives. We need not deceive ourselves that we can afford the luxury of altruism and world benefaction. We should cease to talk about such vague and unreal objectives as human rights, the raising of living standards and democratization. The day is not far off when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts. The less we are then hampered by idealistic slogans, the better."
