What You Can Raise INSTEAD of the US Flag - Wear Green & Black

by Vietnam Veterans Against War AI Thursday, Oct. 25, 2001 at 6:22 PM
vvawai@oz.net

The U.S. flag and its colors are being used in an attempt to whip up patriotism and convince people that there is a "ground swell" of support for the U.S.'s "War on terrorism". People who want to express their grief for the victims of the 9/11 attacks, as well as the victims of the current bombing campaign against Afghanistan, should put down their flag and instead take up the GREEN & BLACK campaign

WHAT CAN YOU RAISE INSTEAD OF THE U.S. FLAG?

--WEAR GREEN AND BLACK

The U.S. flag and its colors are being used in an attempt to whip up patriotism and convince people that there is a "ground swell" of support for the U.S.'s "War on terrorism". People who want to express their grief for the victims of the 9/11 attacks, as well as the victims of the current bombing campaign against Afghanistan, should put down their flag and instead take up the GREEN & BLACK campaign

GREEN has been used in areas around the country to support people who come under racist attacks. It identifies us as allies so that people know who to go to for protection should they need it.

BLACK symbolizes loss of life, sadness, mourning. In this case, the loss of life of thousands in the 9/11 attacks, the current bombing raids, as well as the thousands more innocent people who die at the hands of U.S. imperialism around the world every day.

We call on you to stand with the people of the world against this war

WEAR GREEN AND BLACK!

The Arab People are Not Our Enemy They Are Our Sisters and Brothers

Our Grief is Not A Call to War

While your at it. . .

why don't you turn in your US passports and move in with your Arab brothers and sisters in some nice place like Yemen?

Seriously though, the people on this page have such a twisted and warped view of the world and the people in it.

Do you seriously think that the militant Islamic fundamentalists who have declared Jihad on the US are your 'brothers and sisters'.

If so -- you've got a very dysfunctional family there!

'Cause your brother wants to kill you and make your sister wear a burka all day!

Peace will not come when the US is defeated. Peace will come when the militant Islamic fundamentalists are defeated. Then and only then will democracy and civil rights have any chance of taking root in the Near East.

So get on board if you want peace.

spinner?

That was a nice spin you put on that person's post...

You ever think of being a press secretary or something?

What you read was obviously not what the person wrote... You twisted it around like young dubya twisting the neck of a chicken on his daddy's ranch.

Are all Christians terrorists?

Dear Curt,


Dubya got your brain in a vise? Can you really not distinguish between a criminally insane suicide bomber and one of the 1,300,000,000 ordinary human beings who are Muslim, or those who are Arab? Did you advocate the abuse and murder of all Christians when Timothy McVeigh bombed the federal building in Oklahoma City, or call for the destruction of the United States for "harboring" him?


Start thinking. Your ignorance is making you a pawn.


-Stephanie

you'll notice I didn't say "Arab" -- I said "militant, Islamic fundamentalists".

I don't think all Arabs are militant Islamic fundamentalists.

But. . . I do think all militant Islamic fundamentalists must be destroyed.
