Antiwar.com Mouth Breathers


The anti-war link above is such clap-trap. If one wants to put this war in the context of economics as the writer did, it would be better to assume that far more would go to Iraq to earn money without the threat of dying in the process. Any war has an economic impact, but in a far different sense than the writer espouses. One would have to believe that poverty first breeds terrorism without knowing that terrorism and extremist beliefs breed poverty which in turn breeds more terrorism - as those who support terrorism or commit it and embrace extremist beliefs are summarily rejected by society at large, then they hole up in smaller communities and in turn reject the larger society. You can't jump into the middle of the terrorism/poverty loop and arbitrarily call it the starting point. Couple that with fanatic religious beliefs and then you have your job pool. Without the fanatic beliefs, her whole theory collapses. There are people all over the world who live in abject poverty and do not resort to terrorism.

She also does not address the remaining Ba'athists in Iraq. They weren't poor. They had wealth and power. They had a lot to lose and they got it all by simply pledging allegiance to murderers and thugs. They know they can't compete in a free market so they seek to have the Ba'ath Party restored to give them that advantage they enjoyed in the past.

Of course we also have the IRA which commit acts of terrorism, but under an entirely different premise. Let me first say that no terrorism is pardonable, but the IRA lashes out at an obvious oppressor. The Islamic brand of terrorism lashes out not at their oppressors, but everyone else, for their oppressors are their own kind who cut off their hands, torture them, limit their individual economic growth and stone their wives, sisters and daughters.

I read the linked article, I went to the "home" link. These really are dispicable people aren't they?

Good analysis of this particular moonbat.

As my friend Chazz might say, "what a DUMBASS!" This Ann Berg obviously fancies herself as an "Intellectual" - with her 50-cent words peppered (too much) throughout this ridiculous diatribe. Only a devout (and therefore blinded) Moonbat can equate terrorism with legitimate industry.

The real "Roach Motel" is between her ears, where logic and clarity may check in...but they don't check out!

Anyhow, thanks for the tip - I went to OverSpun and reengaged the disillusioned young moonbat...check it out for a chuckle!
