Iraq: Fulfillment of Orwellian prophecy

Baghdad (CNN) -- A series of bomb blasts killed at least 37 people across Iraq on Tuesday, including 30 in an explosion at a vegetable market in Diwaniya, police officials said.
In that attack, some 99 miles (160 kilometers) south of Baghdad, a suicide bomber parked a truck packed with explosives concealed by watermelons and began calling shoppers to the truck. He then detonated the bomb, killing 30 and wounding 100, according to police.

It seems to me that anyone close enough to see the driver detonate the bomb would be dead.  I suspect that the driver didn't know about the bomb, and that it was detonated remotely by a member of organized Satanism. 
DIWANIYA, Iraq, July 3 (Reuters) - Bombs killed at least 44 people at markets in Iraq on Tuesday, and authorities said they bore the hallmarks of sectarian attacks on Shi'ite Muslims by al Qaeda Sunni militants.

As usual, they somehow know right away who was behind the bombing, so there's no need to investigate. Nor is there any need to act on that knowledge, to prevent future bombings. It's enough to simply say that some group of fanatics did it, and leave it at that.  The idea is to imply that the government will do something about it, when the real government was probably behind it.

In the nine years since the U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein, successive Iraqi governments have failed to address chronic power disruptions in a country where temperatures can top 50 degrees Celsius [122F] in the summer.
Power outages are a major complaint among Iraqis, many of whom face power cuts for up to 20 hours a day during periods of peak demand.

"Access to clean water is not the only problem faced by Iraqis today, though it is one of the major ones. There are areas in Iraq where entire water systems are in need of repair," said Alexandre Farine, the ICRC delegate in charge of water and habitat activities in the country. "We are focusing on the areas that have been hardest hit, where such problems have posed the greatest challenges to the population. People's daily lives are affected by the scarcity of clean water, which in turn causes health and hygiene problems."

Again, the government's script are designed to give the impression that it's doing something to solve the problem, when it's actually not, or at least not doing nearly enough. It's as if they're putting us in a hypnotic trance to get us to ignore reality and base our behavior on post-hypnotic suggestion.
Even as a pullback of American troops marks a winding down of the war, more and more Iraqis are seeking medical treatment for trauma-induced mental illnesses, and the medical community is unable to keep up.
Across Iraq, 100 psychiatrists are available to serve a population of about 30 million people, Iraq's psychiatric association says. Many people self-medicate, and prescription drug abuse is now the number one substance abuse problem in Iraq. The most abused drug is called Artane, known generically as trihexyphenidyl but referred to in Iraq as the "pill of courage," with a marked sedative effect.

So, organized Satanism destroys a society, creates a lot of misery, convinces people that the problem is in their minds, and gives them "treatments" that are actually intended to destroy their minds and/or kill them. The actual cure is to fix society.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.

Next in line for "liberation?"  Syria?  Iran?  What does the great sage William Kristol recommend?
