Stockholm Syndrome- Look it up!

Reader comment on item: Prepare to attack [Iran]
in response to reader comment: Nura - Victim of Stockholm Syndrome

Submitted by Nura (United States), Jun 27, 2008 at 15:55

I am hardly a classic example of Stockholm syndrome. You are the second Indian to make such a statement to me. A classic case would be a Muslim who was imprisoned and tortured in Guantanamo Bay for the last 7 years and then starts to emphasize with his captors. Has this happened? I guess Muslims are resistant to this phenomenon.

Most Muslim women suffer from Stockholm syndrome? You don't know what it is so how would you know. Thus, your argument is that any woman who enters or remains in this religion has to be suffering and experiencing a neurosis that can be treated? Is that your analysis?

"See classic case of stockholm syndrome... The kurds whom he gassed didn't share your views niether Kuwait whom saddam tried to annex.. Also the victims of Saddams cruel regime actually welcomed the americans when they entered baghdad."

Can we all say propaganda. I wonder why this information came to light only when the U.S. invaded? Despite the fact of internal conflict, who is slapping Turkey's hand, "The most advanced Islamic country in the world", for their aggression against the Kurds? I guess we are saving that for later.

I bet the majority of Iraqis including the Shiites are re-thinking their support of the U.S In fact, whoever supports their presence it is because of the alternative. A torn nation ruled by warlords which it is what it probably will become anyway. Finally, the U.S. has a reason to occupy the area. The same tactic used by the British to occupy it back in the 30s or 40s, Peace.

"S.H at work here too.. how do you gather crime statistics in countries where everything from your personal life and social life is monitered closely. The press is gagged and you dont get to hear any incidents or read about the same in the newspaper? Anyways, its way of life there so they are used to it."

Who are you quoting? Get your information straight. I never said that there was no crime in Muslim countries. I was talking about specific crimes, rape, pedophilia ect. I did state that the West has one of the largest crime rates in the world. Statistics stand by it.

So it's all about the gag order. I'm not saying it does not exist, but let me give you a clue: Most of the Muslim world would not be able to handle the number of criminals and crimes that are present in this country. The prison systems take allot of money! They are expensive to build and upkeep, which means you would have allot of criminals running the streets. It would be a hectic life. I lived in Morocco for a year and everyone knows that it will take up to an hour for the police to arrive FOR ANY REASON. You would think that all hell would break loose with people knowing that they would not be stopped, however, it is rare that you hear of murder or robbery. Sure in High tourist areas it happens, but I really expected more. Most Immigrants when they come here are shocked at the level of violence and crime in this country.

iRAN WILL BE ATTACKED NOT BECAUSE ITS PEOPLE ARE REPRESSED OR THERE IS A DICTATORSHIP , IRAN WIL LBE ATTACKED BECAUSE THE POEPLE ARE WITH THE REGIME AND SUPPORT DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL BY DEVELOPING NUKES.. AS SIMPLE AS THAT

Enjoy your liberties in the US and let the ARROGANT IRANIANS SUFFER THIER FATE.

Why are you involved in the discussion about Iran? What are your interests? You hate Muslims and Islam as simple as that. That is why you have an opinion on this issue. I have no emotional attachment to Iran, however, I can see the results of such an idiotic move to attack them. You are right, The Iranian people will respond. Do you know what that means? Iraq could not defeat them in the Iran Iraq war. The U.S has not won the war in Iraq seven years later. Israel is good a dropping bombs but war needs ground work. The problem will be much larger with no end in sight. Imagine the impact it will have on the economy. There will be a domino affect that will be devastating. Only a fool would think otherwise.

PS , I LIKED YOUR VIEWS ON INDIA NUKING PAKISTAN.. IF ONLY OUR SPINELESS DHIMMI ISLAMIC PACIFIER POLITICIANS HAD THE GUTS ......

Are you crazy! You are next door!! What you think the radioactive fumes won't just blow in your yard? Pakistan uses their weapons, then what? Are you suicidal?

Enjoy your liberties in the US and let the ARROGANT IRANIANS SUFFER THIER FATE.

My liberties and comfort have changed sicnce the war on terror and will change much more when Iran is attacked. This move will affect us all. The last time I checked arrogance was not punished by murder.
