Still??? You have got to be kidding me. The people of Iraq are rejoicing in the streets over the Coalition liberation and we still have protesters. Since it’s a Yahoo News link that will probably disappear in 2 weeks I’ll give you the best quotes…
“This is not about liberation, it’s about the occupation of Iraq and the plundering of its natural resources,” said Dustin Langley, a volunteer with the protest’s sponsor, Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, or ANSWER.”
And as we all know ANSWER is sponsored by Marxists supporting North Korea’s dictatorship.
“We’re calling to stop this series of endless wars, to stop this occupation of Iraq and the Middle East,” he said, adding that the “axis of evil” fingered by US President George W. Bush more than a year ago was no more than a “list of targets.”
Now why would he say something like that. Could it be because North Korea was fingered as one of the Axis of Evil? The same country that’s funding ANSWER.
“It is clear the war is not over,” said Andrew Murray, chairman of Britain’s Stop the War Coalition: “There are still people being killed and we will also emphasize our opposition to occupation.”
Occupation is the new buzz word apparently. There is no occupation. I think the word you’re looking for is liberation. See I haven’t heard President Bush or Prime Minister Blair say “Oh by the way, we’re taking over and there?s nothing you can do about it.” All I keep hearing is that they will help install a democratic government. But I guess communists are opposed to that kind of practice.
“The war is over in its most obvious form as a classic means of destruction,” said Fausto Bertinotti, Secretary-General of Italy’s Refounded Communist Party (PRC):
“But it continues as low intensity conflict and a strategic hypothesis of world domination by means of preventive war as conceived by (US President George W.) Bush.”
Guess what the key word in that quote is? Communism seems to be a recurring theme here doesn’t it?
In Paris, banners read: “Stop the occupation of Iraq” and “Yes to a democratic and independent Iraq.” Protesters chanted “US go home!”
Before I die I hope France gets involved in another war so they can come crying to the U.S. for help and we can say “Um..remember that business back in Iraq and how you didn’t help us? Well payback’s a bitch.” And you know if France didn’t OCCUPY Vietnam we probably wouldn’t have had the Vietnam War.
British film director Ken Loach said: “We have to stop the occupation. This is illegal. This is against international law.”
The British Michael Moore. So I guess the torture and rape of Iraqi women by the Iraqi government was within international law?
The lack of logic behind these protests just amazes me. It’s clear that these protests have nothing to do with the war. These protests are nothing more than Bush bashing or America bashing. These people could not give a rat’s ass about the Iraqi people.
There was one quote from the article which made the rest pale in comparison…
The scene was different in Kuwait City — invaded by Saddam Hussein’s troops in 1990 — where demonstrators expressed gratitude for the toppling of Saddam Hussein’s regime.
You don’t hear them accusing us of occupation.
