Reader comment on item: [Appeasement Explains] Why Europe Balks

Submitted by Mr.Daniel Tobin (United States), Jan 29, 2003 at 14:57

Yes, it is frightening that the United States has chosen to appease Zimbabwe, Syria, North Korea and especially one you did not include, Libya, the oil-rich, blood-thirsty, arrogant military dictatorship misled by "Col." Muammar qaddaffi, Arabic birthname abu minyar. My brother Mark Lawrence Christopher Tobin was among the 270 killed in that act of mohammedist fascism on the eighth day of Hannakah and four days before Christmas at my home in 1988. Then-pres.Bush did not retaliate as a self-respecting commander-in-chief should after his countrymen were mercilessly slaughtered. After the investigation he said,"Syria got a bum rap on this". Whom he is protecting there we may never know.... Perhaps the sanctions will be lifted so that Libya can conduct business without resorting to relentless violence like it has in the past. Respectfully Yours in Peace and Freedom, Daniel Tobin
