"GOP or DEMS they are not your friends, except in how a lion truly appreciates the personal qualities of a gazelle."

"If they could profit in the long term by torturing you to death, you'd wind up cold, alone and in terrible pain at the hands of "patriots"--while the GOPS and the DEMS made stupid mouth noises about defending freedom.

"The only thing that saves you is what saves a minnow from the tuna nets.

"Do not forget that."

# by Kevin S. Van Horn The Murder of Freedom - one reason the freedom movement isn't working is because so many of its supposed members believe that those who work for the state should be judged by different rules than the rest of us. [tle]

"I personally left a thank you note with those on the Wall. Although I'm not proud of the reasoning behind the war in Iraq, I remain grateful for those who go such places and who brave such dangers in the name of freedom."

This is one of the most bizarre statements I have yet seen written by someone purporting to be a freedom activist. What in the world did the U.S. invasion and conquest of Iraq have to do with American freedom? To quote Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride, 'You keep saying that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.' Was Saddam's government trying to conquer and rule America? Of course not. Even if they had tried, was there the slightest possibility of them succeeding? Of course not. Had Saddam's government attacked American territory? Of course not.

The invasion of Iraq was simply an act of naked aggression, on par with Hitler's invasion of Poland. It was an unquestionably evil act. The U.S. invaders killed many thousands of Iraqis, both soldiers and civilians, and U.S. occupation forces have killed many thousands more since then. By the standards that would be applied to any of us peasants--that killing another can only be justified in self-defense, and only the aggressor himself may be harmed--the invasion was, in fact, a hideous act of mass murder.
