Pathetic anti-Bush anti-American comments

How sad and pathetic can someone be? And for what? To prove themselves right? Or just to satisfy some pathetic sad desire inside them? Or maybe they hate the US some much that they will be happier to see a nation ruined than to see the US succeed!

Some of the comments posted on the BBC News site, "What are your hopes for Iraq parliament?":
I hate to say this to Iraqis, but I pray for chaos and civil war: it's the only way to stop Bush's policies and show that peace can never come through force. If Iraq gets peace, Bush wins credibility. It cannot be allowed to happen.
Nina, Toronto Canada
Nina, you are sick! Seriously, you need to see a doctor! Something bad must've happened in your childhood!
What parliament? A puppet government under an occupation. What hopes can we have? Iraqis need to understand this is a cover to provide cover-up to the corrupt Bush administration. Americans, please wake up and see how greedy you are.
Sahil, Sydney, Australia
Sahil, they select a government, you say puppets! We elect a government, you also say puppets! What do you want, Saddam? In your dreams!

But there were also some good comments:
My hope is that Iraq becomes a democratic, federal, pluralistic society that respect human rights, freedom expression, women's rights and all minorities. If democracy succeeds in Iraq it will spread the same to the whole of the Middle East who are very thirsty to taste it.
Ary Hassan, Kurd living in Norway
And some constructive ones:
I hope that the new parliament gets formed quickly. We Iraqis who risked our lives to vote deserve to have representation. To my fellow Kurdish brothers that posted here, I ask them to understand the basics of democracy. It is not getting everything you want, and it is only through constant negotiations that we would be able to solve this process. As for others, I am sorry to hear that Iraq has become a war zone for Bush-whacking. If being liberal means you are peace loving, then maybe you should study what is happening more clearly.
Ali Isam, Baghdad, Iraq

I am sorry to see that some people hate the US so much, they prefer to see more Iraqis being killed just to prove Bush wrong. Legitimate criticism of the US is one thing, but this has become irrational. HOwever, I don't think this is a typical viewpoint so don't lose sleep over it.

The hatred of political opponents seems to be a justification for existence for some people. If deprived of it, they would have nothing to live for. I forsee waves of leftist suicides in the medium-term future. Evolution at work?

Thank you for posting this. I've hared people saying things with the same sentiment and I live in Texas for goodness sake. Please, please keep up the blog. I'll check back.

Hello Ahmad,
I'd like to hope that Nina was being sarcastic in the extreme, but sadly, I too have heard the far left say such things. I cannot imagine the depths of hatred that would lead someone to "pray" for such a thing, just to prove one policy wrong, over the policy of inaction.

I was very glad to "hear" the saner voices you posted.

Ahmad,

They are just that Ahmad! Deprived of a good life and very bitter to see good coming out of what the US is doing. Like Brian H. said evolution at work. It’s a good thing really. It will be nice to show the world that democracy and freedom does work! Really!

You know there are some people also that are negative all of their lives and nothing in the world will ever change them. They are born nasty and they will die nasty!

Ahmad,

By the way I liked what Ali Isam, from baghdad said.

If being liberal means you are peace loving, then maybe you should study what is happening more clearly.
HOW TRUE!

I am embarrassed that Nina lives in the same country as I do. Opposing the war is one thing, but to wish death and destruction on the Iraqi people so she can feel vindicated is really, really sick.

I wonder if she has any ancestors who fought against fascism - and won - in Europe in 1939-45. I wonder how she would explain the flourishing of the economies, the development of democratic institutions and the respect for human rights that followed the defeat of that ideology in Europe. She's a baby, really. She has no concept of history or of the fact that peace is and always will be far more than just the absence of war. Genuine peace is inseparably entwined with justice and human rights and sometimes it takes a war to bring about these conditions so that true peace can prevail.

Clearly folks have completely lost touch with what it is supposed to mean to be an American. The values of our forefathers are not important just because they came first. They are important because they are as true and pure today as they were then.

* Freedom of Speech
* Respecting the citizen's rights
* Tolerance of opposing opinions
* Citizens governing themselves
(OK, it's not really a Democracy, but the Representational Republic is less afflicted by beuacracy)
* Freedom from Government oppression
* Freedom of religious expression
* Absolute Seperation of Church and State (For the sake of the Church, the State, and most important, the people).

Those are some that I can pull off the top of my head, and I'm sure I'm missing some biggies. Still, here are things that any person claiming to be an "American" should believe in. We should be the world example of Diversity and Tolerance. The example of what true freedom is, and what fruits can become of it. Change the world though inspiration before turning to agggression.

Now try to guess my political flavor from that bit-o-rant? You can't because these are no brainer values that all Americans should believe in. Whether you're Red, Blue, Purple, or whatever.

Unfortunatly, there are some in our government who want to see these values taken away, or at best compromised. As Americans, we're supposed to be vigilant, to make sure this sort of thing doesn't happen, and to punish those who do.

Bush? He's just the figurehead of a country that have little to no confidence left in his leadership. He could bring the real Jesus to the Oval office, and no one would believe him. That's why he should step down. He's not evil, just not a good leader. Anti-Bush is NOT Anti-American, but it may be a bit misdirected.
