Iraqi Wives as Hostages
Man, there sure are some brutal dictatorships out there. You wouldn’t believe some of the tactics government agents and soldiers will use to go after their enemies. I'm glad we're not like that.
There’s been a story in the news about women being kidnapped because their husbands were suspected of being insurgents. This is supposed to smoke out the husband and get him to surrender. What a sleazy lowlife tactic. I’m sure glad nothing like that would ever happen in this country. “It Can’t Happen Here,” as we like to say.
So, which pestilent tinpot dictatorship was it? Let’s see…probably Saudi Arabia or Burma or Sudan or… Oh My God! Say it isn’t so! Uh, this is sort of embarrassing, but…ahem…it was us.
Talk about getting your own house in order before complaining about somebody else’s. Or projecting your own faults onto everyone else. Etc.
OK, so we’re enabling democracy to begin flowering all over the Middle East. But we’re using the same tactics as the dictators we’re supposed to be replacing. We’re showing how much better we are than Saddam Hussein — by imitating Saddam Hussein.
How many new al Qaeda members are we creating when we use tactics like this?
New terrorists are created by our wackoid neocon “adventures” in Third World countries. We get alarmed at the increase in terrorism, so we use even harsher and sleazier tactics to fight them; this in turn creates even more terrorists…
And the circle goes ‘round and ‘round…
