In Response To: The so-called peace activists again (Fred Aprim)

For the upteenth time, Fred. You want to take me on, be direct. Don't be so slimey about it.

1)Why are you bothered that people are coming out to voice their opinions, Fred? You want "informed assyrian" to go back to where she came from and keep her mouth shut? I'm sure if she was praising you, that wouldn't be the case. Grow up.

2)Should I have been posting my views on Chechnya, Somalia, Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Yugoslavia, Colombia, Rwanda and every other hot spot on earth at this forum. My posts already get tagged as "unrelated" by some ppl in this forum and they are about the war in Iraq. Give me a break. If you want my take on those topics I'd be more than happy to share.

3) I don't know Parhad. He isn't my hero. I stand on my own convictions. Grow up, Fred. Not everybody is a lemming. Is that why I bug you? Because you can't pin me to any of the people you can't stand? Stop misrepresenting me, because then I'll have to expose your lies.

4) NONE of the people that you have categorized in the "peace activist" camp support Saddam. What we deplore are the means toward removing him. Get it through your head. Until you get that through your head, there is nothing to debate. NOBODY likes Saddam. No one thinks Saddam is good for Iraq. Opposing this war does NOT implicit mean you support Saddam. Understand? The hundreds of thousands of people on this earth that have shown solidarity against this war are standing against the violence and the unjustified nature of this war. Do you know what it takes to get tens of thousands of people mobilized in a common cause? What does the average German, Peruvian, Frenchman, Canadian, Australian have at stake to support Saddam? Have you stopped to think about that?

Qasrani questions a whole lot of things in life. Does that mean I don't support Assyrians? That is ludicrous. I wouldn't be posting on this forum if I didn't think that my Assyrian people were worth engaging with. You want to (slimely) pin my loyalty to my people on whether I think they are descendants of ancient assyrian by implication. Go ahead, but you would be showing your narrowness. Perhaps my nationalism is grounded in something else. Perhaps I have enough confidence in the tradition and history of my people that I don't need to rely on these sorts of connections to make me proud to be Assyrian.
