Hearts and minds

This is excruciating to read. But you must read it.

This is your indictment. If you voted for these people, if you support them, if you "support the troops", you have earned this hatred.

I have a tattoo, two tattoos, because they mark me out as me. If I am found on a lonely beach one day, I'll be distinguishable because no one else has my markings. I am not alone in this idea.

Stop telling lies to yourself American. We know that your racist brutal murdering war criminal troops came from your society and reflect its values. we know that because we see how they behave and have to bury their victims. If you are stupid enough to think we feel anything but hatred and contrempt for your soldiers and the country that sent them to make war on my people then you are a fool.

As to Saddam bad though he was your country is far worse.


We need to leave and stop killing and being killed. We should never have been there in the first place but now we simply have to leave. There is nothing more to discuss about it. It's ridiculous to claim we have a responsibility for the aftermath that should keep us there. This is the aftermath. The only hope for Iraq is that the violence lessens when one of its main targets is gone, and that the people are able to thrash out agreements that all can live with. But how can they ever even begin that process when the hated invaders remain, killing and being killed?

not all soldiers are as described in your blog. some are dumb enough to believe that they're actually doing the right thing in Iraq.

Who cares? I'm willing to accept that they're idiots, not villains. But so what? Get the idiots out and the villains too.
