Monday, September 17, 2001 -- The Sad State of Afghanistan
Take a look at this: http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/af.html,
paste this link into your browser and behold the piteous enemy.
They have no crops, no forests, no water, no industry. There are
26 million of them with a life expectancy of 46. They have no constitution,
no army, no government except for factions and the fanatical self
proclaimed Taliban. They have only 100,000 television sets 21,000
phones, almost no paved roads and a measly 26 km of railways, a
per capita income of $800 annually. Women cannot vote and the literacy
rate among women is 15% and 50% for men. They have existed for 81
years are still too illiterate and factious to form a government.
They are religious fanatics because they are the poorest and meanest
of peoples, and the one thing they have in abundance is ignorance.
Their number one export is opium. The US boycotted the Moscow Olympics
because of the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. We protested and
ultimately participated in freeing them from occupation, these wretches
don't know who the enemy is! Letting the bombs loose on them solves
nothing. As hungry as I am for revenge, the reality is the enemy
is not a country we can aim our awesome weapons of destruction against.
I applaud the President for his restraint. There can be no surgical
strike. The governments and wealthy fanatics who conspire to undermine
our freedom and way of life need to hunted down and one by one eliminated.
They need to be penetrated, undermined and assassinated. No trials-
no courts The people of Afghanistan live a mean and horrible existence,
they are pawns and have no idea why they hate us. They are too pathetic
too bomb to extinction. Bin Ladin knows that and it is part of his
plan to force us into action. The fanatics have twisted the facts,
there is nothing in the Islamic faith that condones or calls for
murder of the innocent. Fools who are led by the charismatic leaders
are dangerous enemies, they have no free will and thus are dangerous
bullies. Lemmings, who are told what to think and when to think
it. We have met that enemy before and we prevailed. Hitler one of
the greatest evils in History was destroyed and so will this new
enemy suffer. If we choose to level Afghanistan, all of Islam will
unite against US, this is exactly what they want. They are watching
us to see how we treat our Muslim citizens. As impossible as this
seems we need to treat them as citizens and not condemn and persecute
unless given reason. No one is more saddened than me over our incalculable
losses, I can taste blood and hate that I have those feelings. Dammit
I am an American and will not be brought to the level of the enemy.
We will win and win decisively.
