Protesters Aren't Morally Superior

JAY AMBROSE: Protesters aren't morally superior
Scripps Howard News Service

Published: March 21, 2003, 10:03:43 PM PST

(SHN) - I was surfing the TV for news about Iraq yesterday, and happened upon an interview with a French war protester, a scientist, who said rather cheerily that it was not Americans she disliked, but the policies of President Bush and the kind of world those policies would bring about.
Here is a question for her. Has she heard about the Iraqi prisoner-shredder, and does the world she seeks have room for it?

She had better consider the question, because Bush's policies would smash that shredder by smashing the Saddam Hussein regime, whereas her position would allow its existence and the continuation of fascistic torture and murder.

Maybe you don't know about the shredder. As best I can tell from an electronic library, it has not received extensive coverage in the United States. Testimony about it came from Ann Clwyd, a member of the British Parliament and also of a human rights organization called Indict, which has been collecting evidence about the atrocities of Saddam's regime for two decades. In a recent article in the Times of London, she quoted an eyewitness of a stomach-churning form of execution.

"France is sending WMD specialists to Iraq"

-====================================

For what? To surrender?

We need to tell France that any French personnel in the combat zone will be fired upon.

Our troops will be in trouble with these demented enablers of terrorists.

They should have the best knowledge since most of the equipment is theirs.

Let them go, Why risk the lives of innocent lab mice to test whether this stuff is real, use these French WMD guys instead.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: OMG!!! this is more than I can take!!!

You don't need to be in the combat zone for the American troops to fire upon you, look just last night a RAF plane was shot down by an American missile as that poor plane was coming back to Koweit after a mission.

Our troops will be in trouble with these demented enablers of terrorists.

From what I know, the grenade that exploded in an American camp, which killed one solider and injured others was not a terrorist attack, nor a demented French, but an American soldier. Yeah, an American hand threw a grenade at his own fellow soldier. "Band of Brothers"

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Go light another candle, and mourn.

Oh, by the way, I agree with you: protesters are not morally superior. They are moral, full stop. As opposed to the others.

what YOU know seems to be a bit skewed, so let me tell you about it...

he was a solidier of iraqi descent and a memeber of the us army. reports say that he was reprimanded earlier in the day for insubordination, so it wasn't actually ideology realated. obviously, he was not a member of our great miliary to serve and protect our country in the first place. you make it sound like it was an actual american soldier who loved his country but had a moral epiphany or something. he wasn't. he was a worthless turncoat piece of sh**. don't twist the facts.

:lol: Take a breath Katie, at the time I posted that we knew not about it.

What happened to the prinicple that America's a big melting pot, and people of any race or any descent is American blah bla blah? So now he's not a real American? Ok. Do you have any information about why he was in "your great Army", has he been there for a long time or did he decide to join only after he heard of your attack of his parent's or maybe grand-parents' country? Because, unless he joined very recently, I believe his ambition originally was to protect what he thought was his country.

However, whatever you think the fact remains the same. A member of the American army threw a bomb at other American soldies.....Let me know if there's any twisted information in my statement. Many thanks :)

Being the blind patriots that most Americans are, I can very easily imagine the same thing happening if it was an soldier of "American descendency" (if that makes any sense) who would have to fight against America, especially if his point of view this war is not fair.

where in the hell did i say he was not a real American? because i stated that he was of iraqi descent that you decided that i was inferring that he wasn't an actual american? brilliant deduction there.... :rolleyes: the man threw a grenade in his own camp. he is clearly unstable... i never said he wasn't a "real American" as you put it... again, stop twisting words to suit your purpose.

and it is so nice to know that you are experiencing such enjoyment from this. i don't care who you are, what country you come from, or what your beliefs are.... you are a sick individual when you enjoy hearing about people dying.

blind patriotism my ass. you know obviously know nothing about it.

Do you need me to explain your own post?

I found the irony of the incident very funny indeed, which doesn't mean the death itself was a funny fact. Couldn't care less whether you like it or not :)

blind patriotism my ass

exactly!!

no... you neednt explain my own post to me.... with english being your second language, it is obvious that you are having difficulty understanding me. i am done playing interpreter with you. it is completely useless to even try anymore.

i realize that at this point, i shouldn't be surprised by your callous, inhumane demeanor in this discussion... but your comments make me ill. and to think i at one time had respect for you as an intelligent human being. how wrong i was.

:lol: is that all you could come up with after you realised you had contradicted yourself? Cheap shot, not surprising. Come on, explain to me one more time how by saying "he wasn't an actual American" you didn't mean that "he was not a real American" Please Katie

:lol:

As I said, I don't care what you think or feel about me. I'm sure you'll recover from your sickness.

Given that this thread has turned into posts of personal attacks, I shall not reply to you if you chose to reply to me. That's not why I come to this board for.

Well then, make sure you don't let your government (which obviously doesn't allow
the truth to filter into the news you receive) find out that you have internet access and
are able to log on here and get the truth from Katie in America.
They might 'fine' you or something. :o

I believe his ambition originally was to protect what he thought was his country.


You don't even get full news reports, :tv: what makes you think we give a rat's a*s what YOU BELIEVE?

A member of the American army threw a bomb at other American soldies.....Let me know if there's any twisted information in my statement.


Ok Laurell, throwing things at 'soldies' sounds sort of twisted to me. :crazy:

I can only imagine how one American throwing anything at another American
would blow the mind :freaked: of a girl who's not even allowed to say so if she disagrees with
her own president.

Being the blind patriots that most Americans are


The coolest part is that we let the non-patriots say whatever they want
in America too. :headbanger:

Couldn't care less :heartbreaker: whether you like it or not


Lauren (whatever), you spend far too much of your time thinking about Americans to expect
us to believe that you could care less what we think.

Given that this thread has turned into posts of personal attacks :cry:
, I shall not reply to you :no:
if you chose to reply to me.
That's not why I come to this board:cry:
for.


Awww............... :picknose:

:laughup: :laughup: :laughup: OK, OK, I really have to answer to that one!! :lol:

- Glad to see you "quoted" from me and took the liberty of adding your own stuff. That's exactly the way information is delivered in your country :lol:

- I'm not so sure you let everyone say what they want. http://abstracts.net/forum/index.php?act=ST&f=70&t=21835Archives from Abstracts. :unsure:

- I live in the UK, and that's where I got the piece of information about the soldier. Just in case you thought I was fleeing from my government (see I can even predict what you're gonna write, we're becoming close :wub:) I'll let you know I'm here to teach because Britain is very short of teachers :)

Bye for now, I think I'll come back, but just for you Dakdance :kiss:
