Riots Over Cartoons Wracks Afghanistan, Norwegian Troops Kill Angry Mob

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

For some reason, I can remember our excuses for going into Afghanistan. We were going to show them how wonderful life is if they cooperate with the "Western/Capitalist" New World Order. Since then, collectively, we have decided to show them mostly harsh rule and death. We won't leave them alone and we occupy their land even if it infuriates them. We make fun of their religion and then get all huffy if they get mad after we slap them in the face. I remember, we were going to win hearts and minds, not go insane and stab each other in the chest.

From Associated Press:
NATO peacekeepers exchanged fire with protesters who attacked their base Tuesday in the second straight day of violent demonstrations in Afghanistan over the publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, Afghan officials said. One demonstrator was killed and dozens wounded.

In neighboring Pakistan, 5,000 people chanting "Hang the man who insulted the prophet" burned effigies of one cartoonist and Denmark's prime minister. And a prominent Iranian newspaper said it was going to hold a competition for cartoons on the Holocaust in reaction to European newspapers publishing the prophet drawings.
I recall when an artist made an exhibit showing the photo of a female suicide bomber floating in a shallow pools, the Israeli envoy came storming in and vandalized the exhibit and then, instead of Israel apologizing, the art show apologized! He was pretty violent and made various threats of further violence that would spread to Israel and that the government would be boycotted unless they prevent anyone from showing any art that refers to Palestinians at all except to demonize them.

Europe constantly censors art as well as writing if it displeases America or Israel. Right now, Austria is putting on trial authors who "deny the Holocaust" and very few people on the left in America say a peep about this rank muzzling of people. If the Europeans were all for "free speech," they better pass a lot of laws protecting free speech.

Our war against the Muslims and their war with us, sparked by a gang of Saudis, inspired by bin Laden whose family is very friendly with the Bushes, is backfiring badly because we can't occupy all the Muslim countries easily unless we get some love from the people living there. We are madly building stark, monstrous military bases all over the place, forbidding outposts designed to keep the populace under our boot heels and then we wonder when they rise up and attack us with their bare hands!

The hate we are spreading is growing, not diminishing. The justified fury is fueled by our pretending we have no idea what is wrong. When someone is standing on your neck, grinning, and you manage to kick them in the balls, they have no right to scream, "How dare you?"

If we want the Muslim world do love us we better figure out the difference between rapine and amore. Tying them up and then ripping them to shreds, bag over their heads, sneering at them, well. How stupid can we be? The Europeans liked to pretend they learned something from WWI and WWII but they really learned very little except, "Fight wars on someone else's territory" which actually, they believed back in 1914. They were shocked when Germany successfully attacked France in 1872. That was a no-no. Attack China? Yup. Each other directly? Nope.

I remember America, under Bush, going to the UN and saying, "We support a Palestinian state and we understand why we were attacked on 9/11, we need your help in fixing, not wrecking, Afghanistan." Well, that was all just a bunch of lies and this also enrages Muslims. The Saudi kings don't count, they are parasites who are losing their moral grip on Mecca which is why bin Laden's campaign against them and their buddies, America, is roaring along just fine, thank you.

We lost this war. We are going to lose more than one battle in this war. We could lose everything just like all those former European empires that fell before us.
