What's in the banner?
Tuesday, March 04, 2003
There was an interesting commentary by Amir Taheri in the Houston Chronicle today, entitled, "'Old Europe' feeds Saddam's suicidal fantasy."
Uday knows who the real enemies are (you do too---four letters, starts with J). He writes in an editorial in his newspaper, Babel:
Remember the vile accusation that the peace marchers actually provided aid and comfort to Saddam and his regime?:
Wonder if they translated the Bush = Hitler banners?
This next bit may explain much.
So, what would you rather be called when you visit a foreign country: Chiraq the Weasel, or the Great Combatant. Maybe if we started calling him the Head Cheese or possibly Leader of the Great Nation Whose Culture's Boots We Are Not Fit to Lick, he'd soften up a bit.
If there is no war, perhaps Hussein will give him a medal. (Note: I feel Lent coming on, so I will be giving up cheap jokes about how only a Frenchman could get a medal for not fighting. Make up your own.)
That is to say, brave Schroeder is opposing us even though we occupy and control his country.
Other Iraqi heroes, according to Taheri, include Jean-Marie Le Pen, Noam Chomsky, Ed Said, and Jesse Jackson.
I swear I am not making this up.
I wondered who this Taheri fellow is, so I googled him up.
[Now that Google owns my butt, can I get a kickback everytime I say Google? Google Google Google.]
Taheri's an Iranian who writes for various venues, including this NRO article on anti-Americanism in Europe.
