It is interesting this number "5000"
Now we hear that the total number of the dead from this incident is 5000
The incident which made every American angry, and calling for revenge and killed 5000
Do you see the similarity ?
5000 Iraqis are killed every month by the Sanctions.
5000 a month
For the last 11 years.
is their a message there ?
Yes, I think the message is
"We feel your pain"
: Dear Iraqui,
: I think we should do 3 things this month.
: 1. Deplore the senseless deaths of thousands of Americans as well as the deaths of 5,000 Iraqi children, killed because of the US sanctions against Iraq just this month.
: 2. Cry just as equally for the 5,000 innocent Iraqi children (227 of them were Christian Assyrian by the way) that died this month, as we do for the thousands of innocent Americans killed in NY.
: 3. Pray that the criminals responsible for today's Iraqi Genocide via sanctions and the criminals responsible for the terorist attacks on the US are quickly apprehended and brought to justice.
: : I feel sad for the victims.
: : No one, and I mean no one, should justify the killing of innocent civilians (otherwise known as Collateral Damage)
: : No one should even justify the bombing of command and control centers, like the Bentagon, or civilian shelters.
: : I remember a very respected top US military leader joking about the bombing of an Iraqi bridge, with Iraqi people on it, and one car drove fast on the bridge, and maybe escaped the falling bomb, and the leader of the US army (General Fatkworf) jock was "That was the luckiest man in Baghdad" ( all the reporters started LOL after he said that jock).
: : I did not laugh, I felt sad when I saw the scared people of NY running away from the falling buildings (Although the people of NY had a Parade in NY after the Killing Field of the Oil war).
: : I feel sorry for the people of NY even as I hear now that poor Arab American Taxi drivers are being beaten up there, and as I saw today on TV a mosque in the US attacked by a drive by shooting. Although I know the only church which was attacked in Iraq during the Gulf war, was a church near Nienavah bombed by the West.
: : Of course we can not compare the bombing scale of Iraq with that in NY, but still the loss of one life, or one building is tragic.
: : We can not enjoy eating other human being, because we are all of the same flesh and blood.
: : I saw a video from the Oil war in which the Western pilot not only was firing at running defenseless Iraqi soldiers, but worse, he was ENJOYING it, verbalizing comments of happiness as he was committing his horrible massacre.
: : The reason the video was shown was because it turned out that he was shooting at his own American soldiers by mistake, and this was shown as a demonstration of Friendly Fire problem.
: : How cruel human being can be !!
: : Why ? why should thousands of innocent Americans, and Hundred of thousands of innocent Iraqis become victims, Why ?
