MORAL ARMOR'S Counterfeit 911: Refuting Michael Moore

Written by Ronald E. Springer

Continued from page 1

Con #6. American forces are running amok, targeting innocent civilians. In The Art of War, Sun Tzu says to attackrepparttar heart of your enemy. Who has Moore attacked? Whose heart is he after? Did he show yourepparttar 146503 crippled and burned Americans still struggling to survive after September 11th? No, he showed you Iraqi casualties. All sides have casualties in war, and a movie maker will favor those of like ideology. Whose side are you on Michael? How many heads have we cut off? Such barbarism only strengthens our resolve to win. Nearrepparttar 146504 end, Moore meekly agrees that "America is a great country." Still, you can't help but get a strong anti-American feeling fromrepparttar 146505 film. It's him tellingrepparttar 146506 rest of us that our world is a sham, our freedom is a lie, and that this dilemma is our own fault. Of course, he fails to mention that we wiped out two dictatorships with a wartime loss amounting to only one-thirdrepparttar 146507 casualties they caused us in New York, and we are now pavingrepparttar 146508 way for their most productive citizens to thrive in a civil world community. The aggregate result will be a release ofrepparttar 146509 pent up energy ofrepparttar 146510 people--an Iraqi industrial revolution and a world benefit--new pipelines, skyscrapers and personal freedoms. It's irresponsible to watch such a movie and draw conclusions based solely on its contents. It is not honest to isolate three aspects of an issue when there are six to consider. Shame on you, Mr. Moore! Summation and Solution. The Koran states that anyone who is not Muslim isrepparttar 146511 enemy, to be chopped, hacked and slaughtered, plain and simple. There is no room for misinterpretation, and no constructive reasoning with such insanity. Allegiance to life must come before religious or political ideas, and such ideas must be based onrepparttar 146512 furtherance ofrepparttar 146513 biological life of a man; otherwise, they are wrong. Torepparttar 146514 oppressed citizens ofrepparttar 146515 world I say, as a free country, America offers a simple institutional structure--no dogmatic requirements; we're all free to believe what we want--but if you limit or harm others, you're freedom will be taken in turn. The old days are gone--the monarchies,repparttar 146516 dictatorships,repparttar 146517 communal nightmares--with room only for civility between men intorepparttar 146518 future. All must respectrepparttar 146519 human institutions whose fundamental guideline isrepparttar 146520 preservation of individual life, by outlawingrepparttar 146521 initiation of force against others. So conform, and live. It isrepparttar 146522 obligation of philosophy to provide a constructive course of action inrepparttar 146523 individual, social, artistic and institutional realms--the full range of human action. Moral Armor does just that, providingrepparttar 146524 first fully-integrated non-sectarian moral code, and it is based onrepparttar 146525 nature of Man. No other style of moral code has even a chance to win over there. The campaign in Iraq was not a new development. Iraq has been a thorn inrepparttar 146526 world's side ever sincerepparttar 146527 Gulf War when Hussein should have been deposed, and it's too late to turn back now. Terrorist dogma thrives on fresh martyrs; we need a strong leader who will see this through, and our President will. Unfortunately, when one side won't listen to reason, you have to fight, so let's get it over with.

Excerpt From An Iraqi Citizen's Blog

Written by TrysDan Roberts

Continued from page 1

Detentions and assassinations, along with intermittent electricity, have also been contributing to sleepless nights. We’re hearing about raids in many areas inrepparttar Karkh half of Baghdad in particular. Onrepparttar 146322 televisionrepparttar 146323 talk about ‘terrorists’ being arrested, but there are dozens of people being rounded up for no particular reason. Almost every Iraqi family can giverepparttar 146324 name of a friend or relative who is in one ofrepparttar 146325 many American prisons for no particular reason. They aren’t allowed to see lawyers or have visitors and stories of torture have become commonplace. Both Sunni and Shia clerics who are in opposition torepparttar 146326 occupation are particularly prone to attacks by “Liwa il Theeb” orrepparttar 146327 special Iraqi forces Wolf Brigade. They are often tortured during interrogation and some of them are found dead.

There were also several explosions and road blocks today. It tookrepparttar 146328 cousin an hour to get to work, which was only twenty minutes away beforerepparttar 146329 war. Now, he has to navigate between closed streets, check points, and those delightful concrete barriers rising up everywhere. It is especially difficult to be caught in traffic and that happens a lot lately. Baghdad has been cut up into sections and several of them may be found to be off limits immediately after an explosion or before a Puppet meeting. The least pleasant situation is to be caught in mid-day traffic, on a crowded road, inrepparttar 146330 heat- waiting forrepparttar 146331 next bomb to go off.

What people find particularly frustrating isrepparttar 146332 fact that while Baghdad seems to be falling apart in so many ways with roads broken and pitted, buildings blasted and burnt out and residential areas often swimming in sewage,repparttar 146333 Green Zone is flourishing. The walls surrounding restricted areas housing Americans and Puppets have gotten higher- as if vying withrepparttar 146334 tallest of date palms for height. The concrete reinforcements and road blocks designed to slow and impede traffic are now a part of everyday scenery-repparttar 146335 road,repparttar 146336 trees,repparttar 146337 shops,repparttar 146338 earth,repparttar 146339 sky… andrepparttar 146340 ugly concrete slabs sometimes wound insidiously with barbed wire.

The price of building materials has gone up unbelievably, in spite ofrepparttar 146341 fact that major reconstruction has not yet begun. I assumed it was because so much ofrepparttar 146342 concrete and other building materials was going to reinforcerepparttar 146343 restricted areas. A friend who recently got involved working with an Iraqi subcontractor who takes projects inside ofrepparttar 146344 Green Zone explained that it was more than that. The Green Zone, he told us, is a city in itself. He came back awed, and more than a little bit upset. He talked of designs and plans being made for everything fromrepparttar 146345 future US Embassy andrepparttar 146346 housing complex that will surround it, to restaurants, shops, fitness centers, gasoline stations, constant electricity and water- a virtual country inside of a country with its own rules, regulations and government. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome torepparttar 146347 Republic ofrepparttar 146348 Green Zone, also known asrepparttar 146349 Green Republic.

“The Americans won’t be out in less than ten years.” Is howrepparttar 146350 argument often begins withrepparttar 146351 friend who has enteredrepparttar 146352 Green Republic. “How can you say that?” Is usually my answer- and I begin to throw around numbers- 2007, 2008 maximum… Could they possibly want to be here longer? Can they afford to be here longer? At this, T. shakes his head- if you could seerepparttar 146353 bases they are planning to build- if you could see what already has been built- you’d know that they are going to be here for quite a while.

The Green Zone is a source of consternation and aggravation forrepparttar 146354 typical Iraqi. It makes us anxious because it symbolisesrepparttar 146355 heart ofrepparttar 146356 occupation and if fortifications and barricades are any indicator-repparttar 146357 occupation is going to be here for a long time. It is a provocation because no matter how anyone tries to explain or justify it, it is like a slap inrepparttar 146358 face. It tells us that while we are citizens in our own country, our comings and goings are restricted because portions ofrepparttar 146359 country no longer belong to its people. They belong torepparttar 146360 people living inrepparttar 146361 Green Republic.
