Reader comment on item: [The Islamist-Leftist] Allied Menace
in response to reader comment: Edward you just don't get it and I am convinced you never will

Submitted by Edward (South Africa), Jul 22, 2008 at 01:51

To this minute, i still wonder what makes you think that the whole world is full of cows, or total fools like you have called me. So, according to you, there is a government in iraq which killed saddam? This makes me think that of late you are smoking something. What we have is a puppet, busy executing whatever bush thinks fit. If you cant see that, then do me a favor and stop exchanging ideas with me because i always thought i was debating with someone who has eyes that see and a brain that works. Why did Iraq sign to ratify the rome treaty and thereafter withdraw the signature? Is it not bush who forced them so he can continue killing iraqis at will and steer clear of any possible ICC indigtment?? Can that damn court even dare issue any warrat against bush anyway? Seems like it was created for african presidents and other third world miserable peasants.

So, i have exposed myself as a saddamist! What does this mean? And what about being a saddamist, just incase you wanted to mean a person who supported saddam? you think the whole world held the view that he was as bad as he was portrayed to be? You think there are no sane people in the world who knew what the american intentions of going to war were, and therefore exercised their right to support saddam hussein? try to broaden your mind please.

Also try to stay consistent in your arguments. It baffles me when you say that saddam was not a legitimate leader, and then immediately in the next sentence you say that "and owed his legitimacy to the gun". If you have the slightest feel of what happens in the world, how many current presidents in the world are holding onto power by virtue of the gun? Does that mean their leadership of their respective countries is illegitimate? and where is bush, the annointed to remove them from power and crown more legitimate leaders?

The statement in your missive, according to me is "Although we liberated Iraq, we are called occupiers. I see no Iraqis - at least those in government - who have shown any gratitude and respect for what the US did by removing this dictator". tell me what that is, if it is not rubbish? You come into a country, kill hundreds of thousands of innocent citizens, rape women, bomb places of worship, rob us of all wealth, oil and create one of the most deplorable humanitarian situations in the world and you expect gratitude on the part of the people you have tormented? You have the nerve to call that liberation? Did you lack a word to use or what? Think again.
