Unanswered questions for Diogenes

by fresca Wednesday, Mar. 05, 2003 at 8:01 AM

C'mon soothsayer. You always seem to vanish when any questions come up.

More nonsense from Dio

"As has becom .e evident to anyone of any intelligence the selling of the war against Iraq has relied upon lie, upon lie,

upon lie.

One of the bigger whoppers is to superimpose the face of Adoph Hitler upon Saddam Hussein. The comparison is simply

dishonest.

One the other big lies important to note is the attempt in the mass media to create only one face for Iraq Saddam

Hussein. That way people are distracted from looking for the faces of the hundreds of thousands who are not Saddam

Hussein and who will die in any of the War Scenarios which have been floating about.

Think about that last one in particular - the dehumanization of the Iraqi People to be replaced with that of the man we

are told we must hate. Not that Saddam is not a vile bastard who well deserves to swing at the end of a rope but the

PsyOps tactic of trying to substitute his face for every face."





A. Kinda like all the simple minded characterizations of Bush as Hitler right?

B. What are some of these "lies" that are always hinted at around here but are never actually exposed.

Is one that since 1991 he has violated 17 UN resolutions?

Is one that he does in fact, by his own admission in the form of "finding" them for Blix, have biological and chemical

weapons?

Is one of them that he has gassed thousands and thousnda of Kurds?

Is one that every human rights group that we could think of has systematically found him overwhelmingly guilty of heinous

abuse and torture?

Is one of them that it's almost ludicrous to believe that if left be, he wouldn't dream of turning down an opportunity to

covertly aid a group like al queda in an attack on the uS or Isreal? Or are we to believe that regardless of everything

else Sadam and bin Laden would never get in bed together since they don't share fundamentalist muslim views and are much

too noble to bend their respective religious convictions.

Or maybe the problem is that we aided Sadam in the past so therefore we are forever beholden to his whims and desires?

And by that logic we should remain perpetual enemies of Japan, Russia and England.

Oh wait, it's probably the whole oil problem. The Bush "junta" (I love it when you use that word..adds real credibility

to your argument) simply wants more money for it's friends in BIG OIL. Forget that they could have easily taken all the

oil in '91. Forget that if they really wanted huge oil deals Bush could have simply lifted the sanctions, got the oil AND

become a hero to all those who buy the myth that We are responsible for the sanctions and not Sadam.

It's probably the heartfelt compassion the left has for the "faceless" Iraqi in the street. The noble oppressed masses

who have stood buy ARMED but silent while a "leader they didn't elect" systematically tortures and murders their

neighbors. After all, they have no chance to rise up and overthrow their "vile " oppressor. That can't happen. Better to

keep the AK47 clean for the "American Agressors" and hope that Sadam henchmen knock nextdoor instead of here.

So, tell me a few lies. I feel like I can read your response already.
