Got this from a UK student "Stop the War" website. This man made a great comment about the Iraq situation.. read on:
Stupid stupid stupid people (anti-war people) who have helped to add weight to Saddam's propaganda machine which showed little else but stupid people marching on the streets to keep him in power. Stupid stupid stupid people (nati-war people) who oppose the war because of anecdotes from civilian casulaties - HOW MANY IRAQIS DIED DURING THE WAR?? hundreds? maybe a thousand? NOWHERE NEAR AS MANY AS SADDAM HAS MURDERED AND STARVED!! So some people have been bombed. its tragic. but what is more tragic is stupid, western liberals using that as a tool to protect a dictator which even the IRAQIS THEMSELVES WHO HAVE BEEN BOMBED are glad to have seen the back of. In the words of one old iraqi man who was interviewed as Baghdad was liberated yesterday, when asked if he was glad that the Americans had invaded, he replied: "There was no other way, if we opposed Saddam we had our tongues cut out". What a shame such a punishment couldnt be dealt out in a democratic country such as this. Shame on you all for caring more about feeling good about yourselves than seeing the bigger picture, that today because of Bush and Blair and the soldiers who fought MILLIONS OF LIVES HAVE BEEN SAVED. The sheer hypocrasy of your arguments has been breathtaking - opposed to killing but will stand by when people are murdered. If you REALLY want to save lives, join the army. Please reply to give me one good reason why you arent begging the Iraqis for forgiveness for being prepared to leave them in Saddams terrible reign. Shame on you all.
Several replies now but not one that has actually answered his questions. They just cut and paste news articles (one had no by line and no link) instead of thinking and speaking for themselves. Lemmings like doing that kind of thing I guess.
