Reader comment on item: The Acute Danger of Iraqi Dams

Submitted by Balarabe Abba (Nigeria), Jul 3, 2014 at 19:46

The West in particular could have helped save the situation in Middle East, North Africa and Else where in the world by not supporting/using these terrorist as tools in regime change in the regions. You in particular are in support of all mishaps in Libya, Iraq and Syria under the guise of regime change with all its consequence in the regions and else where – When you approve killing themselves with guns and bombs, what is your concern about their using dam's water as a weapon? Let them kill themselves with water, fire or poison or what ever they deem fit to bring an end to their lives. Your main concern should be the turning of whole Middle East into a stormy ocean where its entire islands become un-explorer-able.

I think Shimon Peres said it all in his latest speech in US. "The terrorists don't have a certain place, they don't respect borders, they don't respect law, they are mobile," Mr. Pipes, killing with weapon, fire, water or poison is not justifiable you cannot approve one disapprove the others. You should stop all that illusive entertainment called Regime Change in the Middle East, a policy that spread violence and proliferation of arms all over the world - lest calamity fall upon all.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I do not favor regime change in the Middle East. I urge Western governments to protect their own interests from Middle Eastern threats, not more.
