American Friends: We Are Afraid To Email You!!
I would have posted here too, but the width of IBC makes it defficlut cause i need long lines.
so, lets check today's story:
"Thanks again for blogging! You've brought up so many points that I think about over and over. Most of my friends think I'm nutty, but I still tell them about your family and how miserable we've made your lives by occupying Iraq. I told my daughter about it, and she was surprised. She really didn't know how awful and wrong the US occupation of Iraq is. I guess I'd better visit her in person very soon and tell her why Bush is so awful for everyone - not just Iraqis! I was a bit afraid to tell her on the cell phone - Big Brother might just hide me away somewhere. But I can't fear that anymore. Some things are too important. I might get locked away as a crazy person for telling everyone to read Iraqi blogs and vote against Bush and his policies, but at least I know in my heart I'm not crazy - Bush is!".
after posting with few mintes only, i received the first responce from an american friend:
You are so right Khalid! I am afraid each time I open your blog, or any of your families blog! I am afraid that somewhere in America there is a room full of powerful computors and men in black monitoring private computors. I am afraid that someone will come to my door and take me away. I am afraid to talk to some friends that I have known for 25 years because they think George Bushwa is some kind of hero! I fear that they will turn me in. Sounds really paranoid doesn't it? Well, with the Patriot Act they have taken away some freedom. I hate what the leaders of my country is doing to all of you! And to us. I hate that there are blind sheep in my country that eat up the Pap that the Bushwas are feeding them. I can't understand how they can believe him!!! Why are their eyes not open??? I am sure we are alike you and I. And like you have said and your mother has said, we are all human beings. Underserving of the fear that is in our world. By the way, do you have the word Bushwa in your language? It is slang for Bovine defecation! Forgive me for being vulgar but I think of little Bush that way! Thank you for continuing to blog and bring information to those of us who care for you all. I wish I were powerful and could defeat the tyrants that are plagueing your country, and the world. I was reading Salam Pax blog yesterday and he has a report by G in baghdad about the car bombing yesterday....he was there and took pictures of the horrors. He was overwhelmed with the terror. I want to print that report and put it everywhere! But someone would just tear it down and it would not be there anyway. It makes me angry that we are supposed to have a free press and all they talk about now is the weather and murder trials and those damnable Bush campaign ads. I wish I could stop it. Oh, stop listening to me and to live your life! I like that you say that. I am sorry for my rant. But you are right, we are afraid.
I pray this ends soon for all of you and all of us"
how come that people didnt hae that fear few years ago????
i guess you know the answer.
