The use of Reason and reasonable argumentation, the reclaiming of the idea of Progress and the struggle against dogma. In this post-modern world, reinventing Enlightenment is of the utmost importance.

Iraq War: “A historic blunder”


Before the invasion of Iraq all the people who, for some reason or other, opposed the impending war were branded as Anti-Americans; Leftists. Now, Pandora’s Box has been opened and Iraq is proving to be a blunder, a fiasco of gigantic proportions.

Everything has failed. The insurgents continue to kill and be killed. The country is a mess. Democracy? Yeah, more likely a Shiite Islamic Republic will eventually overcome.

And this was also, the neo-cons said, a way to assure a peaceful resolution to the israelian-palestinian conflict. Well, Hamas has just won the parliamentary election in Palestine. We must thank Mr Bush and Mr Blair for that. They have managed, with the intervention in Iraq, to fuel unmitigated hate towards the West, and Western ways.

So, we are anti-Americans, right? So why the hell an American senior general says that the war on Iraq is “a historical blunder”?

Well, you know- I don't care what their justification is for invading and causing trouble in Iraq. Frankly, my opinion has always been the same on such 'historical blunders'. That's just an understatement to the supreme fucking around they've been doing, good lord. It is insane.

the point is, that it was never a 'good call'. Americans.. were not ever good samaritans down in history. I can't remember a time where they were viewed as such, do you?
And I am not anti-american, my boyfriend is american. I.. am anti-supershittyassworldleaders.
