Iraqi loss

Reader comment on item: [Looting:] An Iraqi Tragedy

Submitted by Kyle Gosnell (United States), Apr 24, 2003 at 03:55

There is brewing a much greater loss in Iraq, and it is to descend into a political pawn, for surrounding Countries with an Ax to grind.
The resent opened right to practice religious freedoms, were turned into a rally to hate America, I say just who is behind this action, and what political group sponsors it? If they go With a Theocracy like Iran, then they are eliminating half the population (Women and Girls) as contributing citizens, due to lowered status of near slaves. I do agree that a Democracy absolutely will not work, nor be accepted in Iraq, rather allow a Monarchy, this will be acceptable, not liked, but acceptable, and I suggest bringing in the Saudi's to implement it. Shame, these are basically good people (The Average person) but will not chose right or democracy over their families, as dead is done, all to well understood in that part of the world.

They are a product of over a thousand years of Monarchies, it is so inbred that to think otherwise is alien to them.
We are looking at another Palestine, where the actual citizens are pawns of the terrorists, to resist is death, and something must be done now to prevent this.

They only know one commonality, that is hatred for Israel, and all who side with her, but if you ask them, they will rant for days their hatred, but not one thing will justify that hatred, it just is, lets not forget the lies associated with it, as the touted Media there even put in the papers and on TV about the Israelis eating blood on a holiday, foolishness, and they know it, but it makes them mad anyway. In reality, if a Israeli was caught doing this by their people, they would be publically stoned, same as in any Middle East Country.
The Middle East hatred for us and our Country, will not go away, as it's the masses, not the few who actually come here to see who we are.

The blaming of us for the destruction of the Art treasures stored in Bagdad, and other places, will be a rallying call , and it will never even be considered to blame the ones who did it, and from the looks of it, it was well planned, for maximum effect.
We have a lot of enemies, this is just one of their planned ways for future blaming to incite.
We don't need this yoke on us, give the blamed thing over to the Saudis, let them install a Monarchy, as we can at least deal with them....

Well that's my take on the events unfolding now, and I think you are doing a good job of telling it like it is, Be well, and go well
