The Madness of the Obese

Reader comment on item: Saddam's Rap Sheet

Submitted by Syed Ali (United Kingdom), Nov 7, 2002 at 03:52

Unfortunately strong nations have two common diseases Obesity and Warmongering.

America, or shall we say imperialist America, manifests this situation. But then the Native American Indians would disagree with me on that.

Subjects like the causes of anti-Semitism are taboo in the US.

What we will talk about is how America manufactured this menace put upon us called Saddam and now wants to remove it at our expense, again.

And all that to have the GMC's in Ohio running on cheap fuel. Madeline Albright may call it acceptable damage, but it is not aceptable to us.

You see America is too obese to know what freedom is, it is too mentally distorted to understand how cultures exist, it carries two much of Kipling's "White Man's Burden" to understand why nations want sovereignity. So we cannot talk about that either.

And finally when you bomb Saddam (bomb the people of Iraq because Saddam would probably hide in his bunker until the end, just like a certain President did on that awful day in September), you will not see the corpses, but instead, will see valiant US soldiers declaring victory.

You will forget and move on to other targets, Iran, North korea, you will repeat the formula that is Imperialistic Globalisation. But we who will survive your attrocities and your daisy cutters and will not forget, or let our children forget.

Can you see or understand that, or has the obesity finally gotten to your minds?
