I usually don't do this. But this post was so sickening that I really had to do it.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Post got too long.
"...Fact: the U.S. is not acting alone, but in a coalition of over 30 nations..."
It's just a pity than on those nations the public opinions are against war. From the 30 nations only the UK, the Czech Republic and Poland have ground troops. Poland has 200 and the Czechs some 40.
I suppose Bessarabia Transilvania count as allies. The powerful armies of Salvador, Eritrea, Tonga and Where-the-heck-is-that Republic are also valuable assets for the coalition ... Give me a break.
"...Fact: the coalition did NOT need U.N. "Permission" to act..."
Of course not. A murderer does not need the law to allow him to kill does he?
"...Fact: over 75% of Iraq is now occupied by coalition forces..."
That one must come from FOX. The US controls 100% of the air space.
The US controls about 12% to 15% of the territory and from 2 to 3% of the population. Important to say that the Iraqi government controls roughly 30% of the territory, and some 75% of the population. The remaining being deserts and the Kurdistan areas. Please look at the maps.
"...Fact: the coalition is taking great care to avoid civilian casualties..."
That is something of a discussion. The last time I heard they were targeting civilians taking their hearts "literally" 17 where "Liberated" yesterday.
"...Fact: the coalition is attempting to provide humanitarian aid..."
Up to now, it was propaganda, but even that propaganda was a disaster. They were so efficient that the whole world saw a riot, where the strong got all the food. (suppose that's the American way)
"...Fact: the coalition is not "carpet-bombing," which is more effective in eradicating targets..."
This is true (at least until now) because if things go wrong for the Nazi-like guys in Washington, they will find some credible reason to nuke Iraq if needed.
"...Fact: the coalition has no plans to "colonize" Iraq like an imperial power..."
L.O.L. Ask the vice president what he thinks about all the contracts signed even before September 11. The American Nazi-like elements want Iraq BAD!!!
And BTW, you seem to be very well informed about the US plans of colonization - I don't think Heirich Rumsfeld is going to like that. You'd better be carefully. They are going to start making you offers you can't refuse.
"...Fact: the coalition has taken great pains to save Iraqi oil fields for use by the Iraqi people..."
OHHHH I AM
SURE THEY WILL they will take far greater pain to save the oil fields than to save lives, after all, those Muslims are just stealing American oil which just spilled to under their deserts.
"...Fact: evidence shows that Iraq had banned missiles, and probably has banned chemical weaponry..."
You may believe it. But I don't think anybody believes that.
"...Fact: the Iraqis are in violation of the Geneva Convention regarding treatment of prisoners of war..."
the Americans, which where the first to show war prisoners being humiliated, with guns pointed to their heads, forced to hit the dirt and beaten LIVE on American TV
- But of course Arabs are just scum, they can be humiliated, after all, the show must go on and six o'clock news needs those pictures. Double standards again and again, it's sickening.
"...Fact: the coalition will either take Baghdad by force or lay siege to it until the government capitulates..."
that's true, no matter how many Iraqis are killed (I mean LIBERATED)
"The coalition is committed to victory."
Sure it is, As much committed to victory as Mr. Bush is committed to win a re-election, Mr. Cheney is committed to squeeze everything he can from Iraq, and Mr. Rumsfeld is commited to killed as many Iraqis as needed to help his sick Ego.
