Michael Moore's Minutemen killed 35 children today.
If the reason for their "insurgence" is that they hate American being there, why are they killing their Iraqi children?
Answer: They don't just hate America being there. They hate freedom. And they hate Iraqis who want freedom.
We must win this thing. We have to win it and win it right and that won't happen overnight. But we must stay there until our job is done.
Remember Michael Moore's words?
bq. The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not "insurgents" or "terrorists" or "The Enemy." They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win.
They are too
the enemy, you dumb fuck. They're my enemy. They are the enemy of freedom and democracy. They are the enemy of every Iraqi who wants those things
. And they will surely win if you and people who think like you have their way and we pull out of Iraq too soon.
I'm looking around at message boards today and seeing people saying things like "we have to get the hell out of there, now." I thought you people were all about the children. If you cared at all about the Iraqi children, you would be pleading with us to stay, not pull out.
Don't even bother with comments like "It's the fault of the U.S. for being there." Deal with reality, people. We are
there. What's done is done. Whether or not you think it was right to go into Iraq is really a moot point now. What you should not
be arguing is whether or not stay and finish what we set out do. Now we have to finish it in a way that provides a good ending to the right people. And here's a clue for you: the right people are not
the ones purposely
killing kids waiting in line for candy.
Here, if you don't want to listen to me, listen to the words of an Iraqi woman
"Yes, there have been difficulties. Yes, there have been mistakes perhaps many mistakes. No, you did not find weapons of mass destruction.
“But for the great majority of Iraqis WMD was never the issue. We don’t understand the criticism of your Prime Minister. All we wanted was to be free.”
She added: “I appeal to you all ... to help us build a new democratic federal Iraq that would respect the lives of human beings.”
Asked later if she considered Labour members naive about the situation for Iraqis, she said: “Yes I do think so. They don’t know the reality of their lives.
“They haven’t lived through Saddam. They don’t know what we’ve been through.
“It is not fair of them to ask the British Government to withdraw their forces before completing their mission.
“They are going to harm the Iraqi people more. They are going to cause more deaths.
“If they are concerned about the Iraqi children they should not be asking the British Government to leave them alone at the mercy of others.”
But when did your like ever care what the Iraqi people think? In your eyes, the real Iraqis are the ones with the guns, the ones who hide out in holy places and throw grenades at soldiers. The Minutemen
. It really sickens me to think that there are people out there who believe that the killing of 34 children by TERRORISTS is a sign to cut and run. We are America. We are not cowards. Maybe you are. Maybe your priorities are screwed up, I don't know. Maybe you'd rather see Bush botch this up so bad that Iraq turns into a land of nothing but terror and death. Maybe that would make you really fucking happy because then you could say I told you so. Maybe the death of 34 kids is just another notch in your anti-Bush belt.
Get with the program, people. Start recognizing that the enemy is not us. Start learning who our real enemy is. It's the same enemy that ordinary Iraqis face every day. Would you want to face them alone? I doubt it. Why would you want Iraqi kids to do the same?
This is not the time to run out on them. This is the time to have more resolve then ever, to say to the people of Iraq, we are not going anywhere. We are staying until you are safe. Unless, of course, you don't feel that way. Go tell that to Omar. Let him know you think he isn't worth it.
