Read in the news about how the Bush administration is looking for Iraqi-Americans to speak out against Saddam...to rally public opinion around their need to keep oil flowing at affordable prices and high profits to their few pals. They are willing to teach them how to write letters, op ed pieces...to appear on the evening news urging all good Americans to increase the suffering of a People who never did a damn thing to the United States...caught between the U.S. and its ally Saddam.
Here's the chance for all you true Assyrians to join in the destruction of the land you love so well...the birthplace of your Heritage, you know...the one you all cry over. Let's do what the Levies did in Iraq...let's work for the invader and the despoiler of our Homeland...so he will reward us by handing the ruins and the corpses over to us as a "thank you".
And all of you who fall for this...all of you who believe that THIS time the Christian West will give you what you "deserve"...will understand how Simele's happen.
Terrible Saddam...my my, he gassed 5000 Kurds...his own people. His own people who also made the mistake of listenning to the Siren call of the West...like the 200,000 Kurds he killed after the United States abandoned them...after first giving them "hope" that they were about to "give" Iraq to them.
Of course there is no mention of the over 600,000 Iraqi children the United States has killed through its Sanctions. You are all weepy eyed for the ones Saddam killed and yet ignore the far greater number killed by the Christian United States. This is how the U.S. knows who to enlist as "allies"...this thick headed muddle you call your "National Question" which has as its sole answer only more death and destruction.
Why wouldn't Saddam round up all the families of those who accept this offer and wipe them out? What is Israel doing to the families of suspected bombers? What would the United States do to its citizens living in Iraq who advocated attacks against the United States? What did this country just do to John Walker Lindh? What is it doing to its own laws when it holds without charges or anything else, American citizens in military jails?
All the United States is doing is to shore up Saddam for as long as it needs him. The Iraqi-Americans dumb enough to step forward will identify themselves for easier elimination, or the elimination of their families...a great way to get rid of that pesky brother-in-law who always borrowed your kebob skewers and returned them dirty.
Who is kidding whom? Didn't the United States help identify the Kurds who would rise against him so Saddam could wipe them out? Who has killed more people over there, Saddam or the United States? How many innocent children have been born into these Sanctions and have only known suffering and want and live now in daily fear of another attack? This isn't Terrorism?
Well..."Ross" and Peter The Rabid...here is your chance. Step forward and make the case why the United States should attack Iraq. tell us all how you want law and order and respect for innocent people's lives...how you cherish your Heritage...so please bomb BetNahrain.
