: This will go to their heads in an instant. What they need now are chumps to put into uniforn and "train". A bullseye on their back should be the insignia. How can anyone trust what Bush is going to do. Same mental state that trusted the Brits. Years from now...Assrins will say, "I suppose you're going to blame US for what happened at Simelee II"?
+++ The original news read:
"President George W. Bush has now directed the Pentagon to provide up to 92 million dollars in military equipment and training to groups opposed to Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, the White House said today."
+++ So only for military equipment and training and not even to deal with the likely humanitarian impact as set out in the Kurdish doctor's (?) article:
"War-KurdistanRegion:Likely humanitarian Consequences".
+++ Nevertheless some Assyrians are jumping for joy like kids for being paid as mercenaries for the AMERICAN cause?
+++ I mean it pays for the Americans: Don't need even no body bags and no transport back into USA. The rest of the casualty crap can either be washed into the Tigris or put into a native waste dump.
+++ But also Assyrian officials will be on the winning side:
The more Assyrian casualties the holier the Assyrian cause, the more legitimate the Assyrian politics and above all: the stabler the internal party discipline.
: I guess the message is that Assrins are irresponsible and can't be held accountable for anything. Wise-eyed children, or eternal victims...like "Him". In fact, our take on Christianity does indeed call for us to be victimized, here on earth...to earn that coveted spot next to de Lawd up in hebbin.
: The dominant Christian sect in America is Puritannical/Evangelical/Protestantism. These people barely recognize Roman Catholics and they think Nestorians and Jacobites are heathen pagans. They aren't our "friends", they view our Christian sect as closer to a heresy...we've been here before, you dummies.
: Somehow, I don't see the ancients in that light...don't see them chasing after professional victimhood. But then what did they achieve?
