Would someone please tell me how I'm supposed to get
past the rhetoric of S. Goff's page?
www.bringthemhomenow.org, I mean.
>>The horrible fact of 19 methodical fanatics armed
with box cutters murdering more than 3,000 Americans
should have taught us the difference between
deterrable and undeterrable enemies.<<
For a start, might we not remember all the
internationals who also perished on 9-11?
>>Suicide bombers are not deterable. Dictators like
Saddam Hussein, who clawed his way to power and wants
to keep it are deterrable.<<
Right, so let's wipe out Afghanistan for justice's
sake, and continue sanctions against entire countries
knowing full well it is murder against millions.
>>Al Qaeda has much stronger ties with Pakistani and
Saudi government officials than it has with people in
the Iraqi government. Bush's war would be a massacre
of civilians with no connection to September 11.<<
Why are these things even being discussed on these
terms?. It begs the very questions the Bushies and the
right wing want to be begged--they set the terms of
the incoherent discussion and then pile on to make it
reach a conclusion.
>>Furthermore, if we're concerned about weapons of
mass destruction and we should be let's not do the
one thing that will provoke Sadaam into using them:
invade his country.<<
BEGS THE ENTIRE FREAKING QUESTION!!!! Can't he even
update the page now that Iraq has been invaded and
none of the phony WMD ever got used, not even in
>>The slaughter of thousands of Muslims would beget
hatred which would beget more violence.<<
Well the slaughter of a few thousand Americans begets
more violence than hundreds of thousands of Muslims
apparently. So when is the American side going to get
tired of hating and killing so much?
>>The promise of America harbors a real solution. The
spread of prosperity, hope, civil rights, and
democracy through peaceful means will win us allies
and isolate the terrorists, making their apprehension
Yes, run them all down in the name of democracy and
>>Peace is not naive, and it's not mere moralising:
it's sensible and it's patriotic.<<
Yeah, what do we need morality for anyway, we've got
the sanctity of the American nation!
>>We support our troops. That's why we want them kept
out of a pointless war that would only serve to make
America less safe and less secure.
Bring Them Home NOW.<<
Well, uh, who's going to pay for them if they go back
to the US?
