Libya vs. Iraq


I’m seriously not trying to be a smartass here. I have a serious question.

Why is the UN so eager to authorize military action against Libya yet refused to lift a finger about Iraq? I think that what Gadaffi is doing to his own people, while still brutal, pales in comparison to what Saddam Hussein did to his own people.

So what is the difference?

Saddam Must Die

Let Saddam Live:

You’ve got to be kidding me. I am not familiar with Richard Cohen’s work but he obviously is a card-carrying member of the League of Assclowns. To actually suggest that Saddam Hussein should not be executed is just assclownery at its worst. Who knows how many people he has put to death but let’s give him his own room with heat and meals and all the comforts of home. Hell, that’s more than a lot of American citizens have. I don’t think so, Dick. Hussein deserves to die. Slowly. Painfully.

Saddam Hussein Captured.

I’m not officially back yet but even something of this magnitude will bring me out of my spider hole.

Saddam Captured ‘Like a Rat’ in Raid:

This is a great day indeed. I’m really curious to see how the protesters will spin this one. Probably they’ll harp on about how weapons of mass destruction still haven’t been found. I beg to differ. Saddam Hussein has ordered the deaths of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of his own people. He is a weapon of mass destruction. Or rather, he was. My respect and admiration go out to the men and women of the US Armed Forces.

I quit

Rallies in Europe, Asia on Day of Protest Against Iraq War:

I give up. No. Really. I’m sick of this. I guess the world has spoken. They want to leave Saddam Hussein in power. I say fine, leave him there. If the world wants to leave the Hitler of the Middle East in power then I say fine. Let them deal with the consequences. When Iraq starts invading other countries again and starts committing unspeakable acts against its own citizens or the citizens of other countries the US should just sit back and say..”Oh well, we warned you but you wouldn’t listen to us. Deal with it on your own.” Let the blood be on your hands.

Baghdad Sean

Sean Penn says war in Iraq is avoidable:

It looks like we have our new Hanoi Jane. Actor Sean Penn traveled to Iraq to see if a war in Iraq could be avoided. It must be nice to be a spoiled star and be able to indulge your every whim on a moment’s notice. Yes, a war in Iraq can be avoided and I didn’t have to travel to Iraq to figure it out. If Saddam Hussein disarms his country and steps down then war can be avoided. And a personal note to Sean Penn. You’re not the great actor/producer/activist you think you are. You will always be best remembered as Spicoli. Your fat brother is a better actor than you are.
