how the peace movement kills

This is in tandem with my earlier post about the New York Times article.

Today, Andrew Sullivan quotes Scott Ritter, from a 1998 Time Magazine interview:

"The prison in question was inspected by my team in Jan. 1998. It appeared to be a prison for children - toddlers up to pre-adolescents - whose only crime was to be the offspring of those who have spoken out politically against the regime of Saddam Hussein. It was a horrific scene. Actually I'm not going to describe what I saw there because what I saw was so horrible that it can be used by those who would want to promote war with Iraq, and right now I'm waging peace."

The blood of all the Iraqi children who died in that prison is on the hands of Scott Ritter and the "peace at any cost" lefties.

May Ritter forever be haunted by the souls of tortured, starved children who might have been saved if he was not such a selfish bastard. I hope he never has a peaceful moment in his life again.

Ritter would probably just be looking for a date were he to visit a children's prison.

Full accounting of this suckweasel is definitely called for. Ritter was known to be a liar—there were many stories of underhanded dealings and the likelihood that he was being bought off by Saddam. But if you even mentioned that, someone would accuse you of being a war monger.

I could "excuse" some of this because you did have to dig just a little deeper, and invest a little time in finding out what was happening in Iraq, but certainly everyone knew about the gassing of the Kurds. Where was the moral outrage then?

But, I could excuse some of the head in the sand folks because it wasn't plastered on the front page of NYT or in the tickler on CNN. BUT IT IS NOW! There can be no doubt, by any reasonable person, that Iraq has been an evil dictatorship for years. It's on every news source. The evidence, multitudes, is in.

The President was RIGHT. The President was telling the TRUTH. I always thought so, but he has been corroborated by every news organization. Now what? Do the peaceniks and “give the inspections a chance” folks acknowledge that? Do they apologize to Cheney for calling him a liar and an evil Capitalist, with intentions to scoop up prosperous military contracts? Nope. They continue to lie and make excuses and continue to cast Bush in the same light as Saddam.

My tolerance or allowance for their confusion is OVER. Their agenda is clear. I'm now keeping a list of all these folks and I will NOT forget what they have done.

How can they keep trotting that buttwad out as an authority on anything? He couldn't successfully inspect a piece of toast. Did it ever occur to him that a children's prison is practically a weapon of mass destruction in its own right? How that "man" could turn a blind eye to that type of horror and stay silent about it just exposes him as the worthless puke he is, and it's disgusting to think he profited handsomely for his silence and his "peace waging."

oh god. meki is back.

My husband grew literally sick to his stomach upon realizing that this pedophile KNEW of all this from so far back. He works with a few people that were also unaware that this information has been known since 1998 and even a few of his lefty friends are actually appalled...(DUH)
And Mrs. du Toit, you actually expressed yourself much more eloquently that I am able. I'm with you on the done part.

Apparently they invented the alphabet in Iraq. Wonder if that means they can spell 'paedophile', SondraK

Does Ritter report directly to Eason Jordan?

Iraqi citizen speaking to BBC Television -
"...I can speek freely for the first time
in 20 years. What I would like to say is...'America
get out of my country'"

Right, observer. You want the US to leave Iraq, but not before setting up their police. And giving humanitarian aid. And setting up an interim government. Don't you see it would be irresponsible to not help these people rebuild their country?

If the UN were there, they would be doing such a great job of cleaning up. /end sarcasm

Why do you all slam Scott Ritter? He served honorably in the Marines - went on to get a good education and was respected enough to be a weapons inspector in Iraq. Just because you don't like what he's saying now - you slam him as a person, call him a pedophile, etc. What ever happened to honest and open discourse or do you not respect the concept of "Freedom of Speech" You know - we can all live in a country that holds the same values and restrictions of rights that you do - it's called Iraq. Grow up - learn the facts and don't get all bent out of shape if you happen to disagree. It must be really hard to hold all that anger and hatred in your hearts. Pray for Peace!! Jesus would want it that way.
