Saddam didn't do this."
outside Abu Ghraib's main gate, trying
to visit his brother,
Well ladies and gentlemen,
if this Iraqi man's declaration doesn't hit you in the gut
you can count yourselves as among THE DESENSITIZED.
If it shocks and sickens you, then you
really need to open your eyes and ears!
It also wouldn't hurt to read beyond your Govern
I'm just an average U.S. citizen and if
I can comprehend what this man's
statement says about our good old US of A government and military, why
that wiser men than I are not doing anything about it? Well,
let me clarify that
with wiser and decent human beings!
What is keeping
them silent? Oh, no, you say, they are
speaking out! Yes, some are,
but who is listening to them? And of those who are listening who is
taking actions to
solve the problems? Are we to be surprised by a sudden emergence of
patriots who have been steadily working in the underground freedom
No, that's too much to hope for now. I'm not going to
regurgitate the latest disgusting
revelations about Iraq or the insane babblings of Bush because if you
about them you are probably not going to finish reading this article
So I say to my fellow patriots, how much more desensitization
do you think we'll need
before we have mass cannibalism right here in our land of the free?
Frankly, I am
neither desensitized nor shocked by the deterioration of our country.
And I expect that
anyone with an interest in history saw it coming as well.
What we are facing in this country very soon is not new. It
is only new to Americans
who have lived their lives sheltered from harsh realities that have
always existed in
countries around the world. The greatest Empires all rose and they all
fell. And, the
various reasons for both were also not new. We live in a reality that
was set in motion
as cycles. Until the day the cycles stop, we will go on repeating the
past. Oh, the names
and the faces and the labels will be different, but the basic plot will
always be the same.
So I leave you with this thought.
When a liberated countryman says that their vile former dictator did not
do such atrocious
things to the citizens as the Americans are doing to them, you really
need to ask yourself
"what is wrong with this picture?"
