07-07-2005 15:16(FROM THE USA)
Horrifying pictures are coming out of Iraq today and every day -- have been for almost two and a half years. And all the media wants to show us and talk about is three subway blasts and a bus blast in London. These are white people! They share our history! They share our religion!
If you want to see the face of horror, look for images of Iraq on www.antiwar.com or www.jihadunspun or Google.
What has been happening in Iraq -- that is what is BARBARIC.
What happened in London is a consequential TRAGEDY. I hate that it happened. It is terrorism, and I hate terrorism.
What the UK and USA have been doing in Iraq is even worse -- it is state-sanctioned (Not in Our Name?) and thus is on a scale orders of magnitude greater.
TED KOPPEL: The next time you feel like reading names on the air, read off the names of civilians killed in Iraq. Whether it is 5000 or 12,000 or 100,000 (as the British medical journal Lancet and the US Johns Hopkins University research shows) -- I guarantee that you will be opposing the war after reading for a few days.
It is time to leave Iraq. Cut and run? Hardly. Defend the US, yes, but that is not what Iraq is about, and you know it. It will be much easier for the Army to defend the US if we use it for its intended purpose rather than as an economic instrument.
