Another group of celebrities feels fit to blab about how terrible war with Iraq would be. Even Viggo Mortenson, who obviously missed the whole point of The Lord of the Rings, has been talking about how this war is all about oil.
To be honest, such attitudes are beginning to sicken me.
After reading the British Government’s latest dossier on Iraqi human rights abuses I cannot fathom how anyone could support such a horrific regime. Saddam Hussein dips political enemies in vats of acid, cuts out the tongues of people who speak out against him, and hires a professional rapist to violate Iraqi women. Reading such horrors is sickening beyond all belief.
At this point, I don’t care if this war really is about oil. I don’t even care if this is a personal vendetta against Saddam Hussein. None of that matters – Saddam Hussein needs to be blasted to the deepest parts of Hell.
Yet after all that, these bunch of bobble-headed celebrities want to say how terrible it is that we’re going into Iraq. They argue that collateral damage might kill thousands of Iraqis. (Never mind the 170,000 Iraqis who just disappeared under Hussein’s watch.) They argue that this is all about oil. (Quite frankly, I’d rather have the money from Iraqi oil going to Exxon or Chevron than paying for the salary of a man whose job is the brutal rape of Iraqi women.) They say that they don’t want this war to be in their name.
Fine then. Let it be in mine.
