How America Spent Human Rights Day, 2003
After a dazzling week in which US troops killed at least 15 Afghan children, terrorized, maimed and disappeared an unknown number of Iraqis of all ages and stripes, decreed that the dead would no longer be counted, and treated the world to an inspiring video of America's brave soldiers gleefully shooting to death an Iraqi who was writhing on the ground in a most militant and disrespectful manner, after which a fresh-faced young man, starry-eyed with the glamor of it all, called the experience "awesome," of course the really big story of the day, and the one that has captured screens and tongues in both Europe and the New World alike, is this:
Should America get to keep all the money, or should it share it with countries who don't send their own fresh-faced boys over to help "interrogate" the wives and children of those ungrateful wretches who persist in resisting the Occupation despite their neighbors having been mouth-taped and hauled off, never to be seen again for expressing anti-Coalition sentiments?
Few can be found who do not have an opinion, and even fewer who are of the opinion that the US should take its bombs and handcuffs and portable torture chambers and fresh-faced war criminals and rolls of tape and go back home, and let the Iraqi people have the money, the oil, the money from the oil, the money for fixing things to get oil that the US blew up, or wouldn't let them fix since the last time they blew it up, let them have their art treasures and their ancient jewels, their land itself.
It is unclear when, or if, the US voters will reach a "tipping point." Ignorance of "world events," indeed the world itself is something of a point of pride with the average affluent suburbanite, and a quick round of eavesdropping on any commuter train or at any office water cooler will provide a wealth of anecdotal non-scientific polling results on the question of what the average voter thinks about what human rights should be accorded to those that they have been carefully taught to hate.
Even those who claim to be "against the war" seem to think that the solution lies in arranging for Iraqis to be killed by soldiers from more countries. Yeah, that's the ticket. Happy Human Rights Day.
Actions like Sep 11 do not happen in a vaccuum.
Long before those hijackers ever stepped foot on the planes the damage
had been done. They were brainwashed with the same type of garbage
propaganda that is spewed from Fatwa's weblog.
Middle Eastern countries are so much more barbaric today and preAmercia than America can ever hope to be...America has only been around 230 years...who did you blame for everything before that Ductape? I am calling a Fatwa on your bullshit!
IMO - terrorist plain and simple. He is an Al queda operative who
should be put in a cage on gitmo Skinner
My favorite..."In Defense of Holocaust Deniers"
I always thought that "The Enemy Within" was just a metaphore for liberalism, that is, until I encountered Ductape Fatwa. He should be in an orange jumpsuit for sure.
peopleforchange.netductape is either a commie, al queda, or a deep cover mole
Tells you something about this asshole doesn't it. He's really serious.
I believe that DF is nothing but a Republican plant...
Ductape is a commie, a terrorist, and he drinks blood too. He drinks
Capitalist blood. He eats unborn babies too
Give me your address and I'll send you $20 and a thank-you note for taking your hatred elsewhere.
A terrorist with a sense of humor!
He ain't nuthin' but shit
inadequate, halfway house bullshit
You are a dumbass. Fuck you and your condescension about us "benighted sheeple." hamletta
Untruthful, damaging bullshit
no better than the neocons and no different than Timothy McVeigh
dailykos.coma turd in the punchbowl...if DF were Joe Hill he probably would have killed himself rather than get put to death.
A compost pile of fecundity
dailykos.comdespicable and literally mentally ill
