Unity, Liberty, Socialism
"THE CORRECT BA’ATHIST STRATEGIC READING OF THE SITUATION,
THE COORDINATION AND THE CONTINUITY OF THE ARMED ACTION"
Daughters and Sons of the Arab Nation !
Comrades and Resistance Mujahideen !
Ba’ath proved to have the correct strategic reading,
concerning the growing armed resistance throughout Iraq since
the beginning of the April Heroic Strike when the Party and
the leadership of the Resistance and liberation planned the
organized escalation based on strategic considerations
foreseeing the Occupation, the actual political situation,
conditions on the ground, organizing every resistance
action to deal with the adequate situation in this Strike
as a whole, and taking every appropriate action to counter the
Occupiers political and administrative plans and commitments
which are desperately trying to get some kind of success in
Iraq on the long run.
various Ba’ath political statements, starting with the
political and strategic programme of the Resistance of
September 9th 2003 up until now, show and
confirm the Party's correct strategic analysis calling to
enhance in the first place the military resistant action, and
secondly strengthening the popular basis of the armed
this question we can observe the following :
1 - The correct Ba’athist ideological standards and political framing to
help the Armed Resistance choose and determine its objectives
and targets until the Occupiers and those who establish
established a relation between the military occupation, its
reality, structures, means, plans, and agents, be they Iraqis
or non Iraqis are expelled and the country is liberated.
2 - the legitimate Armed Resistance rights to deal with the illegitimate
Occupation and with what ever it has produced or produces. The
situation must be read only through this prism either by
Iraqis or non-Iraqis. On this basis, we can understand the
Iraqi political development map, in its large titles (An Armed
Resistance against American Occupation)
3 -The legitimacy of the armed resistance being non negotiable, in the
face of the occupation, its titles, and products, and whatever
needed time as long as there is something called Occupation
regardless of the Occupiers political and administrative
4 - The Iraqi Armed Resistance has demonstrated its ability, an oath taken
by the Ba’ath, to snatch the initiative from the occupation
forces, and to impose the conditions of the military actions
on the Occupation forces as a whole and on its field
5 - The Ba’ath and the leadership of Resistance and Liberation Forces
have indeed succeeded into changing the Occupation's
military success into tactical and temporary achievements,
compared with the open and long term armed confrontation with
the Iraqi Armed Resistance Strategy which is not tied (as the
American occupation, its allies and stooges are) to any
political agenda other than the Resistance.
6 - the decisions taken by the Ba’ath and the Resistance to drop the
Arab regimes and ignore them in the Resistance actions were
correct, even if this could lead to a global crisis in the
region. This was what the Ba’ath had predicted from the very
beginning, and is what the countries of the region are living
7 - The legitimacy of the Resistance and the Ba’ath's correct decision
to support in every possible means the Armed Resistance and
its continuity until total liberation, regardless of the
Resistance political influence on the security and stability
of the region and its Arab or non Arab countries.
Ba’ath and the leadership of the Resistance and Liberation
Forces based on correct strategic analysis, and the
coordination of the resistance actions and the growing
confrontation with the Occupation forces including the
tactical objectives defined in the current 7th
of April Ba’ath statement declared the start of the April
Heroic Strike in the Western regions of the country and
which spread to Baghdad and its surroundings, including the
governorates of Diyala, Salahaldin, Ta'amim, Nineveh and
Heroic Strike and what the growing confrontation is achieving
in proud Fallujah, demands from the Ba’ath and the
leadership of the Resistance and liberation, to be vigilant
and prudent over what the enemy could prepare as a military
response from one hand and what he could politically
organize with some Iraqi puppet elements and countries in the
region on the other :
military confrontation in the Heroic April Strike shook the
Occupation forces political authority, and forced the puppet
Governing Council elements and components to change positions.
The puppet Governing Council role has indeed come to an end.
Thanks to the growing armed resistance.
armed confrontation and its political and military weight on
the American Occupation prompted some puppet Islamic
parties in the Governing Council to act as mediators or
plotters each one according to its sectarianism interests and
regional contacts. On this light we can understand the
role played by the puppet al D'awa party in the ongoing
confrontation in Najaf backed by Iran, and the roles played by
the Iraqi Islamic party in the ongoing confrontation in
Fallujah backed by Saudi regime.
Resistance and the military actions of the Iraqi national
resistance, outside the leadership of resistance and
liberation must have one common and ultimate goal: liberation,
and must never be a political containment for different
parties based on confessional shares or else, and it
doesn't help threatening the Occupier to start an armed role
outside the Resistance program.
current Ba’ath April statement analysed and predicted
this situation. From this national and legitimate view, the
occupation has gone beyond every red line through the
aggression and the occupation of the homeland. That is why
everyone should combat it militarily. The deepening and
growing Occupation impasse as diagnosed by Al Ba’ath months
ago, have forced the Occupation to give up its initial plans
trying in a desperate move to extricate itself, even partially,
from the security and military impasse it was pushed into by
Al Ba’ath and the armed Iraqi Resistance.
occupation tries now to get some security guarantees from the
tribes asking military commanders from the Iraqi disbanded
army to command the puppet Iraqi army
and to be in charge of security missions the occupation failed
to assure because of the growing resistance. On this specific
point the Ba’ath warns of these ways and means that deepen
the Iraqi sectarian division considering it as a danger which
could marginalize the state of the occupation of Iraq and the
looting of its destinies if the security of any city or group
was assured that who adopts and acts according to these plans
amongst the military commanders, puts himself through his
own choice on the list of the targets and targeted persons of
the legitimate Iraqi Armed Resistance.
exit of some components and elements of the puppet Governing
Council after June 30th, will not prevent them from being
targeted by the Iraqi legitimate armed Resistance, sooner
or later they will get their punishment as traitors of the
strategy and plans of Al Ba’ath
and the objectives of the Resistance leadership, based
on an open struggle agenda against the Occupation and its
stooges inside Iraq and bearing in mind the impotency and
plotting Arab regimes which lost the trust of their people,
will certainly surprise, confuse and deepen even more the
impasse of the Occupation and the crisis in the region in the
next Arab summit.
Long live Iraq free and defeated be the occupation !
Long live the heroic Iraqi Armed Resistance !
Long live the Arab Ba’ath Socialist Party and its joyous followers !
Long live Comrade Secretary General Saddam Hussein the militant, the resistant and defiant in the Occupation jails !
Long live Palestine free, Arab and dignified !
