“It was vicious, Yaw. Religion is definitely not a code of ethics.”

“But that’s not the issue, Mog. The invasion of Iraq was not of a religious nature. You are confused and as a result of propaganda, you turn against Muslims and Islam.

”It’s like two people, one short the other fat, fighting over a piece of meat. But the fight deteriorates to name-calling. You dumb Shortie! you say. And the other says: You ugly Fathead! But what you should really be doing is questioning something else.

“The real issue here, Mog, is Western forces and their national interests. And the problems in many other countries involve precisely this–the exploitation of natural resources by the West of other nations’ resources to the detriment of that nation’s economy. It is no wonder that the protest banner common to all exploited countries is: Americans Go Home!

“No, Muslims are not vicious, Mog. What do you call what Americans have done to the civilian population in Iraq? Can America see the beam in their eye when they describe Muslims?

“And whatever happens to strike the World just now–be it the old coveting of natural resources, or independence sought by an unhappy group of people, or inter-racial hatred within the community of a nation, it is War that is vicious…”

Why is the US-UK War on Iraq Illegal?

“Just tell me one thing, are you glad that Saddam Hussein is out of power?”

“No”.

“No?”

“No. Tell me, if you went into surgery to correct a knee problem and the surgeon mistakenly amputated your entire leg, what would you think if someone then asked you: Are you glad that you no longer have a knee problem? The people of Iraq no longer have a Saddam problem.”

… “What would you think if you had to go back to Saddam Hussein?”

“I’d rather see Iraq under Saddam Hussein than the way it is now.”

guantanamo.jpg Recent suicides at Guantanomo Bay prison were regarded by US officials as a "public relations strategy." But what could three inmates driven by despair possibly gain in terms of "public relations?" In what way can their suicides committed alone in their cells be termed as "warfare?"

America, you are profoundly out of touch with humanity.  

'Killing themselves was unnecessary. But it certainly is a good PR move' : On Saturday, the camp's commander, Navy Rear Admiral Harry Harris, said the suicides were an al-Qaida tactic. "They have no regard for life, neither ours nor their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation, but an act of asymmetrical warfare waged against us," he said.

Guantanamo suicides a 'PR move': A top US official has described the suicides of three detainees at the US base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as a "good PR move to draw attention". Colleen Graffy told the BBC the deaths were part of a strategy and "a tactic to further the jihadi cause", but taking their own lives was unnecessary. But lawyers say the men who hanged themselves had been driven by despair.

Understanding Jargon: Jargon systematically twists language in order to subvert rational thought and reduce political discourse to the making and breaking of mental associations among vaguely defined symbols, often by means of extreme emotional manipulation. In the process, political discourse is reduced to the most primitive psychological level.

square earth.gif "Yaw, did you know that God created this huge expanse of universe and the multitude of living things on earth of diverse shapes and colours in six puny days? And based on Archbishop Ussher's timeline, God created the universe and all living things only about 6,000 years ago."

"That's difficult to believe, Mog. The physicist Ernest Rutherford discovered a way to determine an object's length of existence through lead-uranium ratios and radioactive-isotope measurements. A fragment of a meteorite was determined to be 4,566 million years old. Earth is at least four and a half billion years old.

"As to the creation of living things, the French, the Chevalier de Lamarck and the British, Charles Darwin, have a theory of evolution that holds compelling arguments. Man cannot be made from common soil — their DNA structures are so unalike. That Biblical story is implausible."

"But so many people believe in the existence of a God, so it must be true," Dulmog insisted.

"Mog, you know that that is an erroneous argument. It is a mistake to think that something must be true because so many people believe it to be true. In the time before Magellan, it was believed that the world was flat, and that one fell off the rim on the horizon. They made drawings in their books of a square earth and considered it fact. The majority is not always right.

"In conclusion, if there is anything beyond your comprehension, please consult someone with a greater mind than your own."
