Cheney is a "war criminal advocating terrorism"
Dick Cheney has been called a war criminal advocating terrorism. Not, as one of my Marine correspondents would prefer to suggest, by the leftist media, but by an insider with impeccable credentials – Larry Wilkerson, former chief of staff under Colin Powell. He accuses the vice president and the defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld of heading a cabal of extreme nationalistic and messianic voices within the Bush administration. It seems, cracks are appearing in the edifice of the “neocon” American empire.
He is scathing about claims by the war-mongers that they could not have known that things would turn sour in Iraq. He claims that Cheney was fully aware that the Iraq invasion would create more terrorism, because "otherwise I have to declare him a moron, an idiot or a nefarious bastard." Strong language from someone who, after all, had supported the Iraq war.
All this will come as a disappointment for die-hard marines. I am not referring to the naked-fighting Royal variety. I mean the ones who, for example, vent their spleen by sending me the following email: “Let all of the islam scum you know that, as of last year all United States Marines in country have been coating their ammo in pigs blood.
That means every muslim cocksucker shot or killed is going straight to hell. Have a nice day.”
The self-declared marine, of course, only displayed his ignorance of matters relating to heaven and hell, but he also gives the lie to the postulations by war president Bush and his cronies that this is a fight for democracy, not against Islam and Muslims. Naked Marines, Marines with a high level of hatred and low IQ, in-fighting amongst the upper echelons of the military, it all opens a window for us into the decadent world of the defenders of so-called civilisation.
It also tells us, unfortunately, that you can insult Muslims with impunity. You can get arrested for the thought-crime of simply asking a question about the Jewish holocaust as the recent cases of Zündel, Ruldolph and Irvine show, but Muslims remain scot-free. You can call them names, detain them, torture them, shoot them with impunity (without coated ammunition, of course, because the animal rights lobby wouldn’t stand for the frivolous killing of pigs).
I sent a complaint to the ISP from where the offensive hate-mail originated: direcpc.com / direcway.com operated by Hughes Network Systems in Germantown, MD, and did not have the courtesy of a reply. I emailed the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to follow this up and was met with the same cold shoulder lack of response. I suppose there’s no money in it.
