UN to ask for help in Iraq – Iraqi people need food, medicine, clothing, and all the other things we take for granted. The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs is goingt to ask for up to 2 billion USD to help alleviate the suffering in Iraq. If we, as Americans, want to be consistent and honest about the motivations for invading Iraq, we should be the most generous in donating to the various Non-Governmental Organizations (Red Cross and others) which will assist in that region.

How many people actually believe that the current conflict is really all about oil? How many believe that it’s all about human rights? How many believe that it’s all about wounded pride? How many believe that it’s because we know where Saddam is and we can’t find Bin Laden so we have to shoot someone?

I don’t know why Michael Moore is a prick, but he is. I even agree with many of his views. But, a documentary filmmaker is not an expert on civics and international relations, no matter how much he yells.

And, fictition is not a word.

POWs

 
 24 Mar 2003 @ 8:04 AM 

I know how the military will react to the POW issues in Iraq – greater resolve, less mercy, more firepower.

How does the average civilian feel though? Will the faces of our servicemembers, scared and confused on international television, make them more sure that war is just, or will it make them waver? I can see it either way. If you see these men, who are obviously out of their depth as POWs, who have recently watched their compatriots executed in the streets, who know that Iraq cares not one whit for the Geneva Convention, do you (as a viewer at home) feel that we really are doing the right thing? Does it make it more clear who is the bad guy and who is the good guy? Or, does it make you queasy and make you want to give in to any demands Iraq may make, just to get our soldiers back safely?
