It appears that those poor, misunderstood and oppressed Iraqis have up and kidnapped a small group of useful idiots. These useful idiots call themselves “Christian Peacemaker Teams”, and abuse the name “Christian” to further their anti-U.S. agenda.
To get a whiff of self-righteousness, hold your nose and go visit them here. This is a group whose core consists of guilty white liberals who never met a terrorist regime that they did not love. They will stand up and, in that hackneyed phrase, “talk truth to power”, just so long as it is a one-sided truth that allows no real debate.
The small group that’s been snatched is featured in today’s news stories, of which one appears in the WaPo with this tidbit from the idiots’ home team of “Christian Peacemakers”:
“We are angry because what has happened to our teammates is the result of the actions of the U.S. and U.K. government due to the illegal attack on Iraq and the continuing occupation and oppression of its people.”
Yes. “Illegal attack.” Well, I’m not sure what the alleged illegality of our attack on Iraq has to do with Christ. If it is any and all wars that they are against, which they should be as pure pacifists, then where is their effort in Darfur? Oh, forgot. Any atrocity committed by Muslims must be acceptable. It’s just us Anglos that are evil Sorry ’bout those crusades, old chums.
One thing that is certain: these idiots seemed to have had no problems with the hundreds of thousands that Saddam and his henchmen butchered over the years. To think that the United States and the United Kingdom are the real obstacles to peace is to not think at all.
