It’s still all about the oil to the International A.N.S.W.E.R. crowd and the tinfoil hat conspiracy theorist losers at Indymedia. Even the tragic explosion at the UN compound is a ripe target for some of their ‘humor’:
At least the Kucinich campaign still has a few supporters left.
Even more irritating thanb the cartoon is this gem of a story from the DC NaziMedia. Hold on to your seats, it’s gonna be a wild ride:
What do Reuter’s photographer Mazen Dana and UN advisor Vieria de Mello (who was due to be UN Human Rights Commissioner, armed with a thick dossier on US abuses in Iraq) have in common? Both were seen as threats to the Pentagon. Both are dead…
Now, days after Dana’s death, we are asked to believe that the attack on the UN that claimed the life of senior UN advisor Sergio Vieria de Mello was not a targeted assassination. Yet the cement truck carrying the bomb aimed at and struck the section of building directly below de Mello’s office. De Mello was preparing, within the month, to leave Iraq and assume his position as new head of the UN Human Rights Commission. De Mello most assuredly was going to that new post well-armed with documentation of rights abuses perpetrated by US troops in Iraq since the start of the war and through the occupation. He has made it plain from day one that his top concern was insure that Iraqis were treated fairly. Now, conveniently for the Pentagon, de Mello is dead and his offices and files destroyed. While the US is of course blaming the attack on Iraqi “rebels” (the vague term used for all attackers under all circumstances), the Iraqi Islamic National Resistance Movement, released a statement condemning the attack and saying no Iraqis would have attacked the United Nations.
UN chief Kofi Annan, usually almost too conciliatory toward the US, has come right out and said he holds the US responsible for the bombing. There is ample evidence that the US wants the UN out of Iraq. Last week, the “New York Times” reported that Bush no longer wants the UN to have a major role in the occupation and instead wants to enlist the help of other (more readily controllable?) countries to help the US in its bloody struggle. The “Times” report said the US government had very specifically refused to grant the UN any authority over security in Iraq. How convenient for the bombers, eh? In addition, Donald Rumsfeld has stated that he thinks the UN and its concern with human rights standards would be a hindrance to the Pentagon’s efforts to control Iraq (as in using despotic, brutal tactics that rob citizens of their rights).
Fortunately, the ranks of honest, patriotic FBI and CIA agents are stronger than the handful of Bush-operative rogues who aid and abet the Pentagon in its criminal activities. FBI agents on the scene of the tragedy are already reporting that the US had been warned of such an attack at least a week ago – but did nothing to stop it. More suspicious still, while the US mainstream media is describing the perpetrator as a desperate suicide bomber from a rebel group, the FBI says the bomb was highly sophisticated -something that might be created by a CIA-trained expert.
I bolded the extra doubly stupid parts. The rest is just garden variety stupid.
you always know just what to say. loved your take, the info – in a nutshell what the talk-show guys take hours to get to. And,without those annoying whiners who call to disagree and say “oh,we should pull out now – roll over and play dead and try to escape without anymore casualties on either side”.. Yeah, right!!! Let’s reinstate the draft (I have an 18 year-old son, so I know what I’m saying here) and get people over there in enough numbers to truly enforce order until the Iraqi people can build enough strength in themselves to combat the money being poured into the terrorists. Doesn’t anybody get that???
Pigboy went off on a hideously sarcastic rant about the UN bombing yesterday. Comments like “Now the terrorists will incur the wrath of Kofi Annan”, and things of that nature.
It was tremendously callous and mean-spirited. Even more amazing, none of his sickening acolytes called him on it. It’s amazing to listen to this asshole, Coulter, Hannity,etc. called liberal comments about the President ‘vicious’ and ‘harmful’. Do they ever bother to read the venom they spew?”
What venom from “Pigboy.” “Pigboy” doesn’t write with quills like the people at Bartcop, last seen posting a bigoted picture about Condi Rice. Yep those Bartcop folks are all about reasoned debate, unlike “Pigboy.”
How out to lunch do you have to be to think the UN and Bush are in cahoots?
Who the hell is pigboy, and what does it have to do with this post?
At a guess, based on what I know of the Partisan Left, they’re probably talking about Limbaugh.
You know, I might feel a lot less disgusted with politically correct speech if it weren’t for the fact that some of its most vocal devotees seem to ignore it whenever they’re talking about people with (R)s after their name.
What a dumb cartoon. Everybody knows that Bush doesn’t golf until he goes to Maine and visits the folks. He just does ranching stuff in Texas.
But seriously, it is funny how the lefties don’t see the irony in talking about mean-spirited commentary in the same post where they’re calling someone pigboy.
In all seriousness about the bombing of the UN HQ, the story says Kofi blames the U.S. (I have not read this anywhere else, and considering the source, I am not accepting it as truth), but what is the U.N. doing to ensure the security of its own people? They just got attacked by Islamacists, and I bet they do nothing except hold a candlelight vigil.
Compared to what Bush did after 9/11, this is a stark contrast. We dealt with – and are dealing with – our terror problem. The U.N. will do nothing about their new terror problem.
And, I suspect that if Al Gore were president on 9/11, we would have done nothing about that – just like the U.N.
“And, I suspect that if Al Gore were president on 9/11, we would have done nothing about that – just like the U.N.”
I doubt it: a good swift application of the Boot of Reality to the head can work wonders on a person. Hell, look what it did for Bush.
What, did you think that I particularly LIKED the guy prior to 9/11? I was warming to him a bit, sure, but I couldn’t stand his dad and the election soured me a little on both major parties. Actually, quite a bit.
Since then… well, let’s just say that the Libertarians aren’t getting my NOTA vote in ’04.
It’s Mike “the Michael Savage of the left” Malloy’s name for Limbaugh.
“…while the US mainstream media is describing the perpetrator as a desperate suicide bomber from a rebel group, the FBI says the bomb was highly sophisticated -something that might be created by a CIA-trained expert.”
…just like Khobar Towers?
