Hi, i invite you to read me at my blog, as i discovered that some of you, dear readers, know me from IBC, not from my blog, and for that i thank the great Emigre:)
anyway, my blog is secretsinbaghdad.blogspot.com where you can find more articles, and links to my family members' blogs, mom, raed and majid.
as IBC has a comment section, i thought you would be interested in reading this email that i got.
Many in America share your anger, but the politics in this country is broken. Have you read about Hitler and the rise of Facism ? Well this is American-style facism, there is no other word for it. Things have been building like this for many years. After getting defeated in Vietnam the U.S. facists climbed into a hole and hid for a while, but now they are back and more organized. They are much more organized then the left is willing to admit. It is frightening.
The main thing about American facism is that violence and murder is projected to other countries, like Iraq right now. They can't do it here YET.. but Bush and his gang want to. They despise democracy, freedom... what they worship is money. It's that simple - money.
Americans have protested this war and occupation in hundreds of ways. But the major media won't cover it, or if they do they label us as "extremists", or call us "anarchists and terrorists". Bush and Kerry ignore the anti-occupation movement..
If a tree falls in a forrest and no one hears it, does it make a sound ?
Peaceful protest is ignored, and so what do people turn to ? Well , it seems many in Iraq have chosen violent resistance - who I am to argue with them ?
I hope you mom feels better, and do what you have to do to protect yourself.
