same rant, different day

Listen up. Fallujah has always been a hotbed of anti-Americansim. Most of the Sunni triangle were Saddam's favored people. They worshiped him, followed his orders, acted on his behalf. And, just like the Palestinians, they raised their children in the same fashion. It did not take a war for them to hate us. They have hated us for a long time, and they did so at the prodding of Saddam and his regime. They were rewarded by being protected. Go look it up. It's all around you, if you care to take a look. Like I said previously, the people who committed these horrible acts today were not your everyday Iraqis. They are, in fact, the evil we came to wipe out. They are just an extension of Saddam, doing his bidding even though he is not there to call to them. But they know. They know by heart what Saddam would be saying to them now: Kill the Americans. Make them hurt. They are not the people we are trying to liberate. They are not people who give a rat's ass about democracy. They are the enemy. They are Saddam. In order to restore peace and bring democracy to Iraq, they must be contained. I'm sickened by the people who are saying that Americans deserve this treatment because we killed Iraqi babies and raped their wives and burned their oil fields and probably stole all their food and ate their cattle. Regardless of what nationality the victims were or if they were independent contractors or employees of the United States government, they were victims of a brutal crime and now their families are victims of the heinous acts that followed. Yet you sit there in your comfortable chair in a democratic world, screaming for the troops to pull out of Iraq and just leave them there, stranded halway between oppression and freedom. You play your moral equivalancy card or you start up with your theories claiming that the Bush administration are may have staged this - just like everything else bad that happens in the world - in order to get "the Bushies" in a rage that will lead to Bush activism. How it must suck to be you, to spend your days trying to spin and turn every phrase, every action into a negative story. The hatred you carry around is a disease. You want bio-terrorism? What do you think happens when you spread that disease around? It certainly doesn't make for peace, does it? I mean, isn't that what you're about? Peace? And don't think that our enemies don't know what you're up to. They revel in your hatred and negativity. They take it a sign that they are winning, that eventually they will be able to just waltz right in here and blow shit up. Guess what? You'll be dead as well and the last thing I will do will be to thank you for all that you did to embolden our enemies. Please, if you can't let your hatred for George Bush and America go for just one minute - if you can't bring yourself to feel some sympathy for the men that was burned and mutilated today then just shut the fuck up. Your words are poison.

The people you're addressing here are less than shit. They can't be reasoned with and don't even deserve to be acknowledged by thinking people. Best to just leave them to their pathetic little lives on move on.

Well said, Michele. I understand and agree with what you're saying and how you're feeling right now.
Dave is probably right but somedays, you just gotta say it even if it will fall on deaf ears.
I have noticed such a rise in the vitriole and hate that I no longer frequent the forums I used to. There's no reasoning with and there's no shame within some of the folks you're talking to in this piece.
It's a failure on their part, not yours.

Thought that might be the inaugural invocation of the rule.

Yup.The so-called"Silent Majority" had better start speaking up,because I am sick and tired of all the nay-sayers going on and on and on with their nonsense.Thanks Michele.

Where are the human shields these days?

Heh. Bunnies are cute.

Spot on, Michele. I mean, I've spent a good chunk of my day off here today (between thousands of chores), and what gets me is the HATE so many left-wing posters show towards anyone and everyone who dares to think that Bush is correct on any subject.

(shrug) Oh well. I enjoy slapping them around too much to want them to stop completely.

In any case, the Americans who the Iraqis killed were people trying to rebuild their frikkin' country. One of my students told me recently that an uncle of his is going over to Iraq to do exactly that, and it worries me to no end.

A-men.

Awwww, what a cute bunny.

It really is too bad that some people are so stuck in their rutts that they can't see what's happening. That we really are doing our best to do what's right over there.

Rope it off. 24 hour warning, then bomb it into a parking lot. Pieces of shit.

I am with you, Bob..
if it's us or them..I pick them.
Carpet bomb the damn place.

When I see events like this occur all I can do is think back to a course I took in college, "Contemporary Middle East". God knows why I had to take that for a French concentration and God knows why I took French as my concentration. In any case what struck me the most about this course was how excrutiatingly painful it was. It was painful for 2 reasons. The first is that it was 8am - 11am on Saturday. The second though was because it was by a guy from the middle east (Prof. Kalani) who had just had surgery on his vocal cords and therefore spoke through some amplifier thing in a monotone. What was even worse was because this was also right at the start of Gulf War I and I had to endure 3 hours every week of this guy lecturing about how all American's cared about was oil and we were afraid, because Islam was a superior religon, they would take over the world.

So yeah I have to say after the events of today I am absolutely convinced Islam is a superior religon. BIG FRIGGIN NOT. These guys are just a bunch of barbarians that use Allah as an excuse for butchery. I hate to stereotype any religon but the one thing I got out of that course is that throughout the history of Islam they've been at war with someone.

The real tragedy is the people that were killed were trying to do the right thing for the good people of Iraq. Its always a shame when a few bad eggs spoil everything. When I see stuff like this happen and think about the families and all of the people affected by 9/11 its damn hard for me not to say nuke'em all and let Allah sort 'em out.

Bastards, what a tragedy.

agree with you 100% on this one, Michele. Another awful day--another reminder of why we have to get the rest of the world to help us out. A change in leadership all around.


Evil Otto? Where did you leave the rolled up newspaper?

falluja needs to remain occupied and under marshall law for a long time. i say, throw a media blackout over the whole triangle, send in shiite or kurdish police forces, and search for these scumbags (perpetrators and revelers) house to house.

Carthage, anyone?

I struggled with the emotion that it would be good to firebomb Fallulah this morning.

I don't agree with you, or your argument. But I don't take any pleasure in those men's deaths, either. I'd say more, but I don't think you'd want to hear it.

Ah, the Imperial Warren thinks that's cute. Pretty pink bunny.

I vote for radioactive glass. A beautiful circle of radioactive glass where this hellhole once stood.

We beat Islam before. It took us 739 YEARS. I think the next time it will be a lot quicker.

My son is over there right now. He says that the majority of people are glad to see the troops and smile and wave.
Fallujah would seem to be an exception. I hope they catch as many of the scum that did this as they can identify and make examples of them. The Iraqi police should arrest them, their courts should try them. And of course do the same thing to them after a fair trial.

739 seconds?

The protest guy with the "I (heart) new york, even more without the world trade center" pretty much finished off any sympathy I had for the lefties. It was a defining moment.

This incident in Iraq, dragging bodies through the streets, hanging them from bridges, did the same for any sympathy for the enemy. Another defining moment.

As has already been said elsewhere, we know who did this. We have pictures. Everyone in them should be rounded up and shot. That is the only justice the barbarians will understand and respect. I don't think all Iraqis are barbarians, but apparently enough are that they need a bit of applied justice.

Barbaros, pl. barbaroi. A Greek word, used to refer to those who come from east of the Mediterranean ocean and do not speak Greek. That's the origin of our present-day words barbarian, barbaric, barbarous, etc. Things haven't changed much in that part of the world, have they?

I keep thinking in circles about this. I start with "Nuke 'em until they glow." Then I think, "But we'll kill people there who are good people, who are grateful for our aid, who have welcomed us." And I ask, "How many are in each camp?", and "Might it be worth it just as a lesson on the subject of what happens to those who act like this towards Americans?"

It sickens me to share a planet with the people who did this. It also sickens me to share a planet with the people who post those messages on Democratic Underground and elsewhere.

Smacking Fallujah down would cause very small ripples in the greater Iraqi pond.

Remember that 3/4 of the Iraqi people have never seen an American, but they do recall that the Baathists oppressed them for 30 years. And what city was a stronghold for Baathists?

As my Kuwaiti daughter-in-law reminded me today...Arabs are clannish, tribal, and backward...Arab men only show courage against women, bound prisoners, and the dead. Squashing Fallujah would not bother the wider Iraqi street at all, as Arabs hate anyone not of their immediate family.

The only disagreement would come from Al-Jazeera, sunni mullahs, and the Bush==Whatever crowd. In other words, nothing meaningful. We could get away with paving Fallujah over if we wanted to.
