Response to Iraqi War Images


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

Response to Iraqi War Images : James Price : jimmie1974@comcast.net : 2008-07-11

Your subject line suggests you are primarily concerned about images of the Iraq war on my website. Yet you said nothing about them. Do you imagine that I have a duty to cover up your war crimes for you by refusing to let people see such images? Why should I be an accomplice to your crimes?

In response to your views of the war, I have a question for you that you need to answer. Have your ever served in the military?

Nobody has attacked Canada in my life of 68 years. Thus there has been no need to serve in the military. Those who serve in the Canadian military today are war criminals since they are fighting an aggressive unprovoked war in Afghanistan that Bush arm-twisted Canada into.

Are you american?

I am a Canadian. I have always been a Canadian.

Have you ever been in a combat zone?

You are suggesting only murders and rapists are qualified to have opinions on the crimes of murder and rape?

I am a huge supporter for the Iraq war since the capture of Sadaam and I damn well stand behind my fellow troops. To say these soldiers, some young children themself signed up to become willing murderes is non-sense.

They certainly did not sign up to protect the USA. The USA attacked Iraq, not the reverse, remember? Iraq had no means to attack the USA. Even the WMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction) excuse turned out to be bogus. So why did they sign up? Iraq is a hell hole. It was not the tourism. It was not the money. It was not the women. It had to be the freedom to butcher, rape and torture without fear of consequences. Read the feedback. None of you soldiers can come with plausible legitimate motive for signing up for Iraq. Listen to them tell you in their own words how much they enjoy killing Iraqis just for the thrill of it.

Most of these men and women were already in the military and were called upon to serve their country after the attacks of 9/11.

They were cowards then, just like the Nazis in WWII (World War II) who went along with Hitler, knowing full well what they were doing was wrong. They deserve the same fate. They could have pulled a Lt. Watada. Their own lives were not at risk. They killed innocent people to avoid inconveniencing themselves. That is the ultimate cowardice.

9/11 has bugger all to do with the Iraq war. Even Bush admitted that.

We have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the September 11th attacks.
~ George W. Bush (born:1946-07-06 age:70),, 2003-09-17, audio.

When people are shooting at you and you cannot tell the enemy from a civilian because they all dress the same, I’m sure after awhile your not going to take the chance, you may toss a grenade into a home that civilians are living in and why because where the hell do you think these insurgents are hiding, within the civilain population.

That same excuse applies to a drug dealer. You had no business being in Iraq. The Iraq invasion was illegal. That makes you a war criminal. You have openly confessed to a capital international war crime, a hanging offence, naming aiding and abetting an aggressive war. Self defence does not apply in a bank heist when the guard shoots at the robber and the robber offs the guard. Similarly, you too cannot claim self defence since you were engaged in a criminal conspiracy, namely the invasion of Iraq. I know you drop-out soldiers are so clueless you don’t know the first thing about international law and the Pentagon goes to great lengths to keep you clueless, confused and misinformed. Since it is your neck in the noose, you really ought to read up. Don’t take my word for it. Do your own independent research.

A prima facie case can be made that the United States is guilty of the supreme crime against humanity, that being an illegal war of aggression against a sovereign nation.
~ Benjamin Ferencz (born:1920-03-11 age:96) Chief Prosecutor for the United States in The Einsatzgruppen Case at the Nazi Nuremberg War Crimes Trials.
The invasion and occupation of Iraq is illegal.
~ Kofi Annan (born:1938-04-08 age:78) Secretary General and Boutros Boutros-Ghali former Secretary General of the U.N.
Wheres all of the fighting, in populated streets. You may have just lost your best friend a week ago after find ing out he just became a father, only to see him blown to shit by an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). What about all of the Iraqi people cheering when an american truck is burning and their stomping on the dead corpse, or stringing the corpse up and dragging it behind a car, while the CHILDREN through rocks at it and spit on it, is that humane? These people were raised to hate americans and so are all of the surrounding countries. Iraqi teen wounded by Americans

But you have no clue why they hate you so intensely, right? You believe the propaganda, that they have no reason at all; they are nuts because all Muslims are nuts. Why not ask them? Go read up on their beefs. Have you any clue how many Iraqi civilians you bastards have killed? Hint: you spent $3,000,000,000,000 killing them. Do a laugh check by computing how much the USA would have spent killing each child if your estimate were correct. Would you not hate with a white heat someone who had roasted your fiance to death with white phosphorus, a death designed to be as painful and hideous as possible? How would you feel about someone who killed your 4 year old son, pinning him to die of thirst crushed in the rubble? You are so dense! You Americans have suffered only relative pinpricks coddled in your DU-hardened cocoons. You guys routinely tortured every POW (Prisoner Of War). Even the Nazis did not stoop that low. I’m a Canadian. Even I have utterly no use for you and you have not even killed or tortured any of my familiy. I cheer every time one of you American bastards bites the big one. Can’t you understand how infuriating it would be to be occuppied by such arrogant, rich, patronising, God-hating (that is how they see your contempt for Islam), unmitigated bullies who invaded to steal from your third world country its only resource — oil. The USA propped up filthy dictators like Saddam and the Shah of Iran. You are likely too young to remember that Saddam was helped to power by the USA and kept in power with gifts of poison gas and helicopters from the USA. Over and over the USA has thwarted democracy in the middle east. Then don’t get me started on what the USA did via its puppet state Israel to the Palestinians. None of that you will ever see in an American newspaper.

War is hell, something I hope my children will never have to see.

Then stop waging it, unless you are defending your country. Your contention that you are protecting the USA by target practice on rock-throwing kids in Iraq is ludicrous.

You wanna bash bush, go ahead, but to put down american soldiers in Iraq is a disgrace and if you are american, then go fuck yourself.

You soldiers are the ones doing the raping, torturing and killing. Take responsibility for your actions. You deserve to swing. A bit of a tongue lashing from an elderly Canadian is popcorn compared with your proper punishment.

I’d like to see your coward ass tell what your saying to the face of a soldier who just came home after he’s lost quite a few good friends over there. Oh and one more thing jerkoff, we don’t behead people behind covered faces. FUCKING COWARDS !!!

You are a cowardly sheep. You kill because your peers kill. There is nothing brave about wasting a child from kilometers away with a high tech rifle or napalming or bombing a house wiping out the women cowering in the basement. There is nothing brave about shooting fish in a barrel then lamely claiming self defence. You are afraid to think for yourself or even research for yourself.

FUCK YOU

Collective fear stimulates herd instinct and tends to produce ferocity toward those who are not regarded as members of the herd.
~ Bertrand Russell (born:1872-05-18 died:1970-02-02 at age:97)

Lord Russell’s observation may explain your extreme fear and loathing of someone, namely me, who can’t possibly hurt you. However, I threaten to disrupt your desperate little herd-lie, that your war crimes are somehow brave and noble acts rather than the international war crimes they actually are. It appears, you would sooner hang by your neck clinging to your delusion than take any action to protect yourself. That shows the incredible tenacity of your sheep genes. It’s your choice, and in a way I am glad you have no Darwinian common sense. I would be most happy to see your DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) removed from the gene pool.

I think it highly unlikely the USA will still be thumbing its nose at the world court 50 years from now. The Chinese, Russians and Europeans simply won’t tolerate rogue state behaviour. I think you are a fool to blithlely assume the government of the USA will continue indefinitely to protect you from war crimes prosecution. I further think you are a moral degenerate for not even caring that you are war criminal. That puts you in the same league as unrepentent Nazi war criminals. You deserve an extremely unpleasant fate.
