Sack these mass murdering warmongers

The death toll reaches one hundred and twenty five in Samarra and another twelve killed in Sadr City Terrorist or Freedom Fighter?as the US military prepares to level Fallujah.   Bush once said, “If you’re not with us, you’re with the terrorists.” Doesn’t matter whether you’re a six year old girl or a sixty year old man, if you don’t love America, you’re a terrorist.

I was born on the fourth of July, 1961. All my life I have watched America wage war around the world. In my country, the US has long been regarded as a friend and ally, a true champion of freedom and democracy. I have always imagined America to be a nation and a people committed to human rights and the rule of law.

Now I feel like my illusions have been shattered. The America I once admired has turned into a nightmare of violence and aggression. The US president turns out to be a homicidal maniac, and Americans are cheering him on. What has happened to this once great nation?

There is no way the attack on Iraq was a legitimate response to the events of 9/11. The belligerent Bush administration has completely squandered the world wide sympathy and good will afforded America in its darkest hour. Now the sentiment has turned to fear and loathing.

Do you think America has the right to attack another country on the basis of fabricated, flawed and exaggerated evidence, and then deny people their right to self defence? Do you really believe that’s fair?

Do you think you can label anyone a terrorist and murder at will, with impunity? Do you really believe you can force people to submit by killing their friends and family? Do you want to be hated?

Have you any idea what you’re doing in Iraq and Afghanistan? Don’t you ever think about the innocent lives you are destroying? Do you really believe you’re doing God’s work, killing children?

What the hell are you trying to prove... that you’re tough? That you have the best military technology and the bravest warriors? Whoop! You can kill hundreds, kill thousands, women and children, does that make you feel safer?

Bush is doing to America what Sharon is doing to Israel, turning their democracies into rogue states, international outlaws, enemies of the civilised world, terrorist entities in their own right.

If America has any desire to reclaim its reputation as a leader of the civilised world, it had better start reflecting on the effect it is having around the world, it needs to listen and learn from the wise counsel of others. No nation, no matter how powerful, can rule the world by military force alone.

I’ve got a message for our warmongering politicians, Arial Sharon, Bibi Netanyahu, George W Bush, Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Tony Blair, Jack Straw, Geoff Hoon, John Howard, Alex Downer, Robert Hill...

wake up to yourselves!
