The October Revolution knocks on the door by Awni Al-Qalamji

If there are one or more reasons for a revolution in a country, such as the existence of a dictatorial or client regime, or the people who are subjected to social or class oppression, then in Iraq there is more than ‘ a thousand reasons for revolution. If I count the disadvantages of the rulers in Tunisia and Egypt who called on the people to revolt, they are not equal to, or even close to, the disadvantages of successive governments in Iraq. In addition to being governments that have done more than the detriment of all the rulers of the world, they are governments installed by the US occupier and his Iranian delegate, and they are working to implement the plan to Iraq as’ to destroy a state and society.
At the political level, this government was formed on the basis of sectarian and ethnic quotas, and the practice of persecution, oppression, forced absence, murder, displacement, incitement to sectarian strife, creating rifts in society, and allowing armed militias to engage in all kinds of crimes and commit taboos. At the economic level, the Iraqi people are living in economic hardship which has led to more unemployed people and extreme poverty. The destruction of infrastructure has also deprived large segments of the Iraqi people of the most basic necessities of life, such as water, electricity and medicine. Not to mention financial and administrative corruption, theft of public money, waste of wealth, etc. In terms of health, education and security, devastation and destruction have swept through every corner of it, to the point that Iraq is at the bottom of the list of the most backward countries in the world today.
We knock on this door due to the escalation of popular resentment, which has reached the point of explosion. More than eight months after the election, which was boycotted by more than ninety percent of Iraqis, the corrupt parties are still embroiled in daily battles over the division of quotas and the division of positions and money. Muqtada al-Sadr, the first winner of the election, wants to seize most of the Iraqi pie, as they put it. While his opponents, in the coordinating framework, refuse to make any concessions, however modest, that affect their profits from the forbidden. What will push the Iraqis to launch a new revolution, more powerful and effective than the October Revolution and not a copy of it. Rather, it would represent a qualitative leap, whether in terms of the nature of its leaders, its political program, or its governance mechanism. In addition to expanding its geographical, social and political scope. I will not tell a secret that the October Revolutionary took advantage of the period of retreat and carried out a process of recalculation, corrected the course and thought seriously by developing the means of struggle, which enabled them to the full and undiminished rights of the people, in a shorter period and with fewer sacrifices.
It is clearer that the Tishreen revolutionary armed action will place side by side with other ways of fighting. Where there is no longer the slightest doubt that the peaceful uprising alone is no longer useful. While the slogans of the revolution will be limited to a central slogan, which is limited to overthrowing the political process with its government, parliament and constitution at once, after the wicked have succeeded in meeting the demands of the peaceful revolution circumvention, such as the formation of an interim government or the initiation of early elections under a new law, the amendment of the constitution, or the formation of a national government far from sectarian quotas. Where these evildoers have managed to circumvent these demands, by making cosmetic changes that are not significant. This explains why the government and its armed militias and parties turn to presenting new plays to absorb the state of public discontent, such as the one currently on display. Once under the title of forming a national majority government far from the al-Attar mix, as the evil liar Muqtada al-Sadr says, and once by issuing laws such as the emergency law to support food security or the law which criminalizes normalization with the Zionists. entity, or issue judicial decisions that strengthen the state’s control over oil wealth until the last of these lies is declassified.
To include the option of weapons in the revolutionaries’ calculations, along with other ways of fighting, is a legitimate right of the people to confront the occupier and his agents. It is not a call to fight among the Iraqi people, as the enemies of the revolution promote, especially the government media, it is rather a call to achieve the legal demands of the people. This right is guaranteed by divine and positive laws. Any objection to this right by means of deception and deception, such as avoiding bloodshed, are invalid objections, or at best a word of truth intended to be false. The blood of Iraqis will continue to flow in various ways if this gang continues to rule. The Iraqi people are not the only people in the world who have been forced by fate to acquire their legal rights at an expensive price. Especially since this prize is tantamount to the return of the homeland to its people and its management by its loyal children, to achieve in its shadow justice and equality in accordance with the principles of citizenship, equal opportunities, termination of exploitation and giving to each his right, regardless of his religion, sect, race or sect. In addition to harnessing Iraq’s wealth, abundance, energy and capabilities to the benefit of its present and future generations.
The tendency of the revolutionary to take armed action was enforced by the nature of the conflict between the revolution and the government, which regarded it as an antagonistic struggle or an existential struggle. Where the armed struggle takes precedence over other modes of combat. Especially since the October Revolution waged the peaceful struggle, and maintained it, despite the use of military force against it, whether by government forces, armed militias or the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, and despite the provision of more than one thousand martyrs and thirty thousand wounded. That is, successive governments, whether they are loyal to America or Iran or both, and whether they are of this sect or that, of this religion or that of this nationalism or that, will not peacefully relinquish power, and will not do not meet the requirements. of the revolutionary volunteer. Responding to these demands means the downfall of the government and the placement of its members behind bars.
If the revolution used the option of weapons, it means that we will see a different kind of revolution that will carry an olive branch in one hand and a weapon in the other. Its title, as expressed by one of its leaders, is either the restoration of the plundered homeland or martyrdom. What increases the chances of the revolution’s success, with its red flag, is based on a long history of Iraqi armed struggle, the most recent of which was the armed resistance against the American occupying forces and their crushing defeat. Especially in the heroic city of Fallujah. In other words, this expected revolution will not stand apart from the history of the Iraqi people, who have always refused to take away their legal rights and are ready to fight for their recovery. Rather, it would be another link to be added to the chain of popular revolutions carried out by the Iraqis. What increases the chances of the revolution’s success is that these bad guys insist on rejecting any reform that even touches a hair of their head, or threatens a profit from their profits, or shakes a corner of their positions, not to mention, and this is what is important, that there is no direction on the horizon by these evildoers or by their occupiers masters to accept the reforms that the revolution wants to achieve. Because it necessarily means canceling all the foundations adopted by the US occupier and his Iranian delegate, in the process of reformulating Iraq as a state and society, according to sectarian and ethnic quotas, a bombed-out constitution, fraudulent elections , financial and administrative corruption, theft and bribery, etc. All of these are the indispensable conditions for the wicked people to remain in power on the one hand, and America to continue its occupation of Iraq and to continue its treacherous project for an indefinite period on the other.
But that’s not the whole picture, as the cast is destined to end. Especially since all Iraqi nationalists who are hostile to the occupation, its political process and the governments appointed by the occupiers will not really stand to wait for what is prescribed to them. Rather, they will take the hand of the revolution, advance its ranks and contribute to the formulation of its political goals. While the revolution will force everyone who trades in his name or tries to ride his wave to abandon these miserable efforts. As for the people of good will who hold conferences in a way that offends the October Revolution, they will discover the error of these tendencies and then stop it, join the ranks of the revolutionaries and rally around them and all support and support to they provide. This will lead to the deepening of national unity, the spread of the spirit of the revolution, and the affirmation of its legal right to use all means, including armed action. Consequently, the revolution will ensure a fence that protects it from the opportunists and mercenaries who try to ride its wave to achieve factional or partisan gains.
Facts and events through the years of the meager occupation proved that these governments, led by Iyad Allawi, Ibrahim al-Jaafari, Nuri al-Maliki, and after him Haider al-Abadi, then Adel Abdul-Mahdi, and finally Mustafa al- Kazemi, did not respond to the legal demands of the Iraqi people, but instead all took refuge in directing the accusations against the insurgency, describing them as remnants of the former regime and the Ba’ath Party at times, and hired by Arab or Gulf countries at other times, eventually used all means, including the use of military force to eliminate the revolutions in their eyes. As for the formal reform measures undertaken by some of these villains, such as Haider Al-Abadi and Mustafa Al-Kazemi, the aim was to deceive and deceive in order to circumvent the revolution.
Talking about the expected revolution at this particular time and recalling its virtues increases people’s confidence in it, especially as we face a fierce media attack led by hateful voices and those with both self- and faction agendas, trying to undermine the revolution and diminish it. Rather, to view the October Revolution as an experience that has gone out of time and surpasses it. The events, and that the return to them is futile, in a miserable attempt to convince people of the futility of popular revolutions, and that it is time to adopt. the political struggle within the framework of the occupation political process. But our people in Iraq have become convinced that there is no way to achieve the demands of the revolution except by abandoning the whole political process at once.
