Warmongers justify the Iraqi massacres
|The warmongers are mounting a counter-attack over the recent massacres in Iraq:|
Our press and the anti-American left both in this country and outside of it has been reporting "Hadithas" over and over again over the last three years.
Time and time again our friends have accused us of every possible atrocity that there is to the point that internationally people are already able to believe this or the 9/11 stuff or all the rest.
Because of this, internationally it is totally irrelevant if the Marines actually violated the rules of war. Our foes are going to say that we've done things if we do them or not, so the only people that it really matters to will be; the people killed (and family) and the people in our own country who support the military.
The real danger is that we who support the war will reach the point that we say "we might as well be taken as wolves then as sheep". At that point the left can celebrate that they have made our military and those who support it the people they claim we are. Once that happens however any compunction about respecting them will be gone, and remember one side is armed and one is not.
That is a fate that I don't wish on any of us.Got that people? Here is a summary:
1. The left has blackened imperialism's good name.
2. Thus it does not matter if a war crime is committed or not because we have persuaded folk to believe that everything is a crime.
3. Thus the poor imperialists are forced to go off and waste a few towelheads.
Does that make sense to you? It looks a bit bloody rum to this writer. As was argued in the post below this one, massacres are a basic component of guerrilla war, and usually come about because the conventional side has lost the war.
The good bit comes at the end: the rednecks are armed and the left is not. Is that a threat of Civil War to the American left? The Exile certainly hopes so because if the Americans are busy killing each other then they are not killing any bugger else.
As one American anti-war blogger sarcastically puts it, to take this line means that: "On the day when Ann Coulter and Pat Robertson finally send the death squads to kill you and me and our families and everyone we know, whose fault will it be? Well, that's obvious: it will be our fault."
