Pakistan's Mushareff Says that the Insurgents are not fighting Iraqis, they are fighting the US

31 May 2005 at 10:07:11 PM

We often hear from Bush that the Iraqi insurgents are trying to kill their fellow Iraqis, without the extra information that the insurgents, if they kill Iraqis, do so to those who support US occupation. That's what Mushareff says to Der Spiegel

SPIEGEL: The festering wound for the Muslim world is Iraq.

Musharraf: Initially, when Iraq was attacked, there was no doubt in anyone's mind that Saddam was a cruel leader. But the military operations were not focused on the center of gravity, as we say in military terms. The centrer of gravity was one individual, Saddam Hussein. The whole action should have been focused on him, but it was focused on the whole country. That had a very negative impact, because it created the impression that a Muslim country was being invaded. ...

SPIEGEL: The question the Pentagon and the White House keep on posing is: What do the insurgents want? They are killing US soldiers and civilians, but what are they aiming at?

Musharraf: A majority of Iraqi people, I am sure, want a stable, unified, integrated Iraq, to be run peacefully. But since these insurgents have entered the fray, whoever wants to join the government and whoever shows he's on the side of US, becomes the enemy. So a frontline is being drawn there. I don't think they have any agenda for Iraq. They have an agenda against the United States.
