Another 4 Bite The Dust!

Ive yet to look into it but i have to wonder if the 2nd 1000 deaths occured at a greater or lesser rate than the 1st 1000. And whether this next 1000 will fall at a rate that is greater than the 1st 2000/2 again.

Bearing in mind of course that figure for all eternity could have been nil if Bush didn't order the invasion and occupation at all.

Now how many Iraqi dead? Ive thought it was up around 100,000 but most reports suggest more like 30-35, 000..... seems like we're instituting frameworks capable of killing off these poor buggers faster than Saddam could... no wonder He's not needed any more. What about rape and violence towards women and children? Well Saddams cronies were pretty good at that but from what i hear due to the rampant lawlessness brought about by Americas maniacal destruction of Iraqs infrastructure, you're as good as "had" should you be caught with a vagina between your legs anywhere outside of the green zone.

Still if nothing else we can be proud of the nobile fight our young grunts are putting up as they desecrate the dead, illegally imprison and torture "suspected" evil doers, gun down innocent civilians, exacerbate the actual terrorist threat, provide a radicalising momentum for terrorist indoctrination and recruitment and generally run amok beneath the flag of our "once" proud nation.

Fantastic. Way to go America.

I dunno about you but i just can't fathom why more nations dont want to hand over their sovereignty to us so we can "democratize" them as well. When you look into the bowels of our country with our 3rd world diseases, wretched poverty, police state tactics, racial hatred and the rate at which we're all killing each other, how could anyone dispute that "we" and we alone are fit to rule this earth and dictate unto all others how they too should live. Very un-Christian of them, me thinks.

So for the meantime we'll just have to keep taking their rights from them so we can free them from themselves. Lets face it. Only when they think and feel like us can they be truely free.

And if that doesn't work we can always have the CIA build illegal prisons in which to intern anyone who claims a right to their human rights a.k.a an "evil doer insurgent". Inside those, thru a strict diet of illegal detention and torture Im confident that anyone who doesn't do as they are told a.k.a an "evil doer insurgent" will soon admit their involvement in "free thinking", confess their brother as a "free thinker" also and sign whatever horseshit confession we thrust at them, in order to stop the pain and torture bought unto them by our overriding concerns for basic human rights.

God bless this great nation. We really are great aren't we? Come on tell us how great we are? What do you mean...No?

Oh well if you dont tell us what we want to hear then depending on how easy it is for us to bully you, you'll either be ignored or we'll invade and kill you. The choice is yours. Remember its all about democracy.... except when it comes to voting.. then its about special interests and election fraud......but hey i digress.

illegal prisons


Actually this might not quite be true considering they dont "officially" exist. Clever that aey.

"We are the CIA and we think the best way to protect the "American People" is to hide everything we do, just in case the "American People" dont like what we do as we go about our business of serving the "American People". We are after all working in Americas best interests whether America seems to think so or not."

BigRick, you are very correct to point out these problems with the situation in Iraq but you should probably try to temper your words and not extend the poor decisions made by military minds and administration figureheads to everyday Americans, lest you simply be written off as someone who just "hates America" instead of someone with a valid point.

Running your article through spell / grammar check and reworking your article would probably help lend credence to your points as well.

Unfortunately that doesn't work. To shift the blame to a Governmental /Administrative level for a population that re-elects and therefore obviously supports the actions undertaken by their representatives is little more than a smoke and mirrors cop-out.

How can citizens of the "supposed greatest democracy in the history of humanity" possibly suggest that they are not responsbile for the actions of their Government?

Ignoring a few typos once in a while would do wonders for yours. 2032 dead and you want to talk about my spelling? *yawn*

Sally, you're an Ostrich.

Face it, most people are apathetic and don't vote at all, vote misinformed, or not informed at all.

It's hard to persuade people to your point of view while reminding them of their role in the blame.

Those that may listen to you will care about spelling and coherency. People like moi.

Sorry Deference, you're too late with this warning!

Yes, if by democracy you mean capitalism...

...and by capitalism you mean US hegemony and neocolonialism

No wonder "they hate democracy" so much

Ah, the poster child of the lunatic fringe left helping provide examples of why the left keeps losing elections.  Way to go!

So what country do you think gets it right if the US gets it so wrong? I don't think we are perfect but I think we are well intentioned and there isn't another country I want to live in. How do you think the men and women serving over there, to protect your rights such as free speech, feel about your post? BTW have you ever been in a combat situation? If not you may want to temper your judgement of the young grunts serving their country.

Locomama, you seem to be very cool and all, and I mean this with no disrespect to you, but I think the war in Iraq has JACKSHIT to do with protecting 'American' freedoms - let alone first amendment 'freedom of speech' rights.

What exactly do you mean by "the left"? I mean, if you are referring to the US Democratic Party, first I don't even live in the US and second, they are a sorry ass excuse for a left at best.

And I'm pretty far left (like in Marxist territory), but I don't feel I should have to censor myself in order to help one party that I don't support defeat a party that I hate.

So what country do you think gets it right if the US gets it so wrong?


The US has a fairly decent record of promoting democracy on its own soil (the ruling class has to keep its population happy through concessions and a healthy dose of propaganda from corporate controlled media), but when you look at the US record on democracy around the world, it is pretty abysmal. I mean, after WW2, the US became the only superpower within its "sphere of influence" (and after the fall of the Soviet Union, pretty much the only superpower in the world). You basically have the old colonial idea of spheres of influence, and any dissent will not be tolerated. I mean, if you are refferring to democracy, Guatemala "had it right" until 1953, when the CIA organized the overthrow of President Jacobo Arbenz, for the "crime" of nationalizing unused land from the United Fruit Company, and compensating them according to international law, and distributing it to the poor in order to allow them to grow more crops and turn around the conditions of inequality (especially in land ownership) at the time. Or Chile, who "had it right" until they elected "the wrong guy" (in other words, the guy who the US ruling elite didn't like), so he had to go. Three years later, on Sept. 11, 1973, the constitutional President of Chile was dead and they had a brand new dictatorship. But he was favorable to US interests, so it's all good (except for the people he killed). Even when you look at Iraq in the big picture, the US has been supporting Saddam at the height of his crimes.

I don't think we are perfect but I think we are well intentioned and there isn't another country I want to live in.


I haven't given up on the general population of the US. It is the foreign policy of the ruling class that I dislike.

How do you think the men and women serving over there, to protect your rights such as free speech, feel about your post? BTW have you ever been in a combat situation? If not you may want to temper your judgement of the young grunts serving their country.


So, should I censor myself to protect my free speech (assuming that if the Iraq war didn't happen, I would be speaking Arabic today--farfetched at best)? Or do I have to fight the imperialist wars of the last superpower to earn it?
