A Bleak Look at Iraq


Here is an email I received in response to one of my essays.

A Bleak Look at Iraq : Ralph Gordon : rgordon10@wi.rr.com : 2008-04-29

I’m an American living in the USA and I stumbled onto your site helping my granddaughter do a paper for school.

I must tell you my country is a disgrace for what it is doing in Iraq. Bush should have been thrown out of office and tried as a war criminal himself. But many people in my country could care less.

I feel so bad for Iraq and it’s people, the poor children that lost their lives for nothing. My country is sickening not so many years ago, the Clinton administration killed American men, women and children in Waco Texas. My Government always tries to justify what they do.

I rage that so many Americans excuse their actions that even Hitler thought were too barbaric (torture and banned weapons) on the grounds of self-defence. Americans seem to be simultaneously aware that they attacked Iraq unprovoked under false pretences and that Iraq has no military, but feel justified in killing every last man women and child in Iraq on the grounds of self defence, while simultaneously claiming to be trying the help them. The nation has gone mad. It is like a mugger pleading self defence when he killed a victim who had the temerity to refuse to hand over his wallet, and he was stealing the wallet to help the man spend his money properly.

America is not America anymore, a lot of people in my country have turned away from God including Washington. The only thing their eye’s are open to is money, greed and power. I often hear people say, what is wrong with these other countries referring to 9/11. I say to them look at our own country and they will find the answer.

As for the pictures you have on your site and the articles I read, I think 100% that America is capable of all of it. And I’m not proud of any of it. I am a born again Christian and I don’t agree with anything my country is doing in Iraq or anywhere else pertaining to war. From a Biblical stand, I pray that Jesus Christ returns and stops the madness.

What we’re saying today is that you’re either part of the solution or you’re part of the problem.
~ Eldridge Cleaver (born:1935-08-31 died:1998-05-01 at age:62) U.S. African-American leader

Jesus said he would show up before the current generation had passed away. He didn’t show. People have been waiting for 2000 years ever since expecting him at any time. Jesus let Auschwitz happen. He allowed two atomic bombs be dropped. He allowed Rwanda and many other horrors. He allowed the ecological destruction of earth and a mass entinction on the order of the end of the dinosaurs. Counting on Jesus is an extreme long shot and a cop out.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
~ Edmund Burke (born:1729-01-12 died:1797-07-09 at age:68)
In all truth, American people are losing their own freedom and can’t even see it before their own eye’s because all they care about is money and what it can buy. I truly think America is on a downslide morally (for many years) and financially and to be honest the future does not look good for this country.

From where is stand they are like children distracted by trivia and hynotised by baubles. They look to any diversion from the serious problems they have created. It is the biggest case of mass self-deception since Hitler’s Germany.
