Too busy to blog today, so I thought I'd post a couple of excerpts from my friends at the enlightened, progressive think tank, DemocraticUndergound.com. Their jubilance over the killing and mutilation of 4 American contractors in Fallujah rivals that of the Iraqis actually dancing around the charred corpses. The general consensus is that the "contractors" were probably CIA agents and therefore had it coming, but Bush holds the brunt of the blame for sending our tots over there to steal Iraq's oil. We need to surrender to Iraq now, and beg the International Community for forgiveness.
That sounds about right to me!
Here's a couple of snippets:
"The iraqis ARE ALLOWED TO DEFEND THEIR COUNTRY FROM FOREIGN INVADERS. Why shouldn't they?
Those people did NOTHING to justify this unlawful and unwarranted invasion.
I do indeed pity the poor soul who was murdered and abused, BUT, had the bush regime not sought to enact its hitler-esque WWIII PNAC scheme that man would NOT have died, niether would have the thousands of US and coalition soldiers.
the PNAC SUCKS. Bush sucks. Don't like it? GET THE FUKC OUT OF IRAQ."
Here's one from someone named "Capt_Nemo"...
"These guys were working for the invader, they should accept the
risks of being in a war zone on the side of the aggressor and
Got killed? Tough luck!"
Mari333 writes with passion and clarity:
"Please call your congresspeople and senators now and scream at them to bring our troops home now..Michael is right in Baghdad, I cant go to him and grab him and get him out please do this please
so many kids are there and no one has been listening to any of us we call and call and call and no one listens to us please do this please help me get Michael out of there I am begging you guys please help us get all the kids out of there please Michael last email told me its worse and worse every day please please its so bad there"
A poster with the moniker "radwriter0555" applies much needed logic to the situation:
"Gee should they ACT CIVILIZED when the barbarian hordes have taken over THEIR country, destroyed THEIR homes and raped THEIR women and killed THEIR children, fathers, mothers, sons and daughters? You want them to be NICE about it? No fukcing way. They are ENTITLED to behave in any manner they so choose. WE need to get OUT of there."
"TheStranger" had much to say on the topic, but I this post has a unique grasp on the facts. When one posted commented that they couldn't believed how completely filled with hate the Iraqis responsible were, The Stranger responded with:
If you can't believe how "completely filled with hate these people are," then you haven't been following current events lately. Here's a little update. "These people" have had their country and their homes bombed, destroyed and/or invaded, uncounted thousands of people (including their friends and family) summarily annihilated, have been proselytized by subhuman garbage seeking to convert them to "Christianity," and can, at best, only look forward to a future of occupation and endless, bloody civil war, all of which -- make no mistake about it -- was the intended aim and consequence of the invasion by the Neoconservatives."
But my favorite post of all comes from "havocMom", who fears that the attack may not only anger right-wingers, but also cause alot of loonies to come out of the woodwork:
"This is gonna heat up the wingers here in the US big time
and they will start getting down and dirty about attacking anti war
sentiment and people who demonstrate it. So many operate from a knee jerk mentality and this is gonna jerk them bad. Worries me that the neocons depend on hate so much as their motivation to do anything. Makes their puppet masters too willing to inflame that tendency for their own purposes.
Heads up, everyone. There will be loonies out there who will be a bit too inspired by this."
