Gee, I seem to remember that the Buddhist monks who burned themselves to death in Saigon toppled the Diem regime. Could it be that this dude -- who I suspect has a mental problem -- knows history and Burnie doesn't?

Also, the phrase "Burn, Baby, Burn" comes from the riots of the mid-60s. To use it in this way I find vaguely and, in some undefined manner, insulting.

Some right wing nutcase wants to burn my church with me in it, because he doesn't like what the Presbyterian church U.S.A. is doing. Last Sunday, the pastor read off a list of the nonperishable foods the Sunday school kids are collecting for needy families, then pointed out the best ways to exit the church in case of a fire. If someone DID burn the church, of course, those kids would burn too. But something tells me the bastard who made that threat doesn't care.

I've never been clear on how igniting oneself protests anything. It's at least maiming and at most suicidal, but doesn't relate to a cause that I can fathom. What good does a dead person serve if they could achieve more by being alive? And if they couldn't do more alive than dead, what makes them think that the white house cares what they do? (There is the argument also, that the white house is happy to see them burn.)

I am sorry for the individual who is misguided enough to sacrifice self for no effect, and I am sorry for their reasons, all of which will be forgotten in the big picture. Living protest works better.

Peace, Mooh.

"Burn Baby, Burn" and "Keep the Faith, Baby" are both catch phrases from Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. He was a US congressman from Harlem in the 50s thru 1972. Anybody who is offended by their use does not remember what a joke (=jerk) congressman Powell was.

Such suicides have historical antecedents, and they have worked.

Within Celtic countries, and perhaps within the entire Indo-European spectrum of culture, fasting against a more powerful person was the ultimate in protest. Quite simply, you sat outside their dwelling and starved yourself until either you died or they rectified what you saw as an injustice against done to you. It was a form of cursing, and often the only such form of protest available to the weaker person. This being done by widows was thought to be particularily powerful.

I have noted the Buddhist monks in Saigon earlier.

Especially when you consider the fact that what the "terrorists" want is not to destroy this country (or any of the people in it), but just to get the US government and military the hell out of their countries. And this has always been the only thing they have wanted.

Burnie, you actually wish death upon people for practicing free speach in what is supposed to be the most freedom-loving country in the world? I think maybe you'd be happier in a dictatorship where they do kill people for having dissenting opinions.

Now on the subject of the people who attacked the US on 9/11, they were mostly from Saudi Arabia, where the US military does have bases, and where the US does indeed support a fairly brutal dictatorship. In fact, the US military presence in Saudi Arabia was given by Osama himself as one of the reasons for attacking the US.

And on the subject of Afghanistan, yes, the US did drop the ball in that country. They (we) used the Afgans as our proxy fighters against the Soviet Union, and the country was fairly well destroyed in the process. Then when we didn't need them any more, we just left them to rot, and didn't provide them with any assistance at all in getting their country rebuilt. The Taliban arose in the power vacuum that was left after we abandoned the Afghan people, and they provided the Afghans with the only stability they had for a while there. And for a while, the US even supported the Taliban because of that.

What was needed in Afghanistan in order to prevent the rise to power of a group like the Taliban would have been monetary assistance for the purpose of rebuilding the Afghan infrastructure. But the US didn't really want an independent Afghanistan that could make its own decisions, because the US wanted to use Afghanistan for an important oil pipeline, so the US allowed Afghanistan to fall ever deeper into chaos until the Taliban arose, and Osama Bin Laden with it. Remember, Osama was trained by the CIA. The US created Osama Bin Laden as well as the Taliban through its direct actions as well as it's criminal neglect of its allies.

You are a very ignorant and hateful person, Burnie.

Now here's a twist!

NEW YORK (AP) -- A man who set himself on fire in front of the White House this week was a key witness against a sheik accused of funneling millions of dollars to al-Qaida and the Palestinian Islamic group Hamas, defense lawyers said Tuesday.

Defense attorneys said Mohamed Alanssi is a confidential informant central to the prosecution of Sheik Ali Hassan al-Moayad, a leading member of an Islamic-oriented political party in Yemen who is awaiting trial in federal court in New York. He and his assistant allegedly conspired to provide material support to Osama bin Laden and the Hamas.

Alanssi sent suicide notes Monday morning to his FBI handler and a Washington Post reporter, complaining about his treatment by the government and threatening that he would burn himself in an "unexpected place."

Federal prosecutors and the FBI declined to comment on the case. But attorneys for al-Moayad and his co-defendant, Mohammed Mohsen Yahya Zayed, said Tuesday they believe the government case was seriously weakened by the incident and Alanssi's suicide notes. The newspaper published Alanssi's letters on its Web site.

Alanssi, a 52-year-old Virginia resident, wrote to FBI agent Robert Fuller in New York complaining that the agent had ignored Alanssi's request to visit his ailing wife and family in Yemen. He threatened not to testify against al-Moayad as a result. He wrote the Post that he was afraid the government might jail and torture him if he stopped cooperating.

Now I don't know quite how to break this to you Burnie, but a person who wants to burn down a building with children, and old people, and idealists, who would be reluctant to fight even if they were attacked, IS a terrorist.

You're right, GUEST US. Absolutely. Just one tiny little thing standing in the way, and that's easily disposed of. I mean, hell, what good is the Constitution anyway? Every president since FDR has ignored parts of it that are inconvenient for them, like Article 1, Section 8, Clause 11. And that little thing about freedom of speech and all, we don't need that, unless, of course, it's our opinions being shut up. There's that thing about the right to peaceably assemble -- I mean, that's bullshit on the face of it, so gun 'em down like the Redcoats did that snowy day in Boston or the National Guard at Kent State.

Uncle Sam, if the terrorists just do what they do because they hate freedom and democracy, why aren't they attacking countries like Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Canada, Luxembourg, Bermuda, and Norway?

The reason is because those countries aren't fucking over other people's countries the way the US does.

It's not anti-war protesters who cause terrorism. What causes terrorism is when strong and powerful countries like the US use their strength and power to cause a tremendous amount of pain and suffering for the people in weak and powerless countries. And using an iron fist on the people who respond to tyranny with violence not only does not stop the problem, it actually makes the problem worse. So it's people like you who cause terrorism, and who feed it.

But still, even with that in mind, I'll not wish for your death.

So with this logic, you have just justified every "terrorist" act that has been committed against coalition members in Iraq. The US military and coalition forces have entered a lion's cage in Iraq, and now they are being attacked for it.   And you are saying they deserve to be attacked. Looks like you think terrorism is a good thing after all.

But only a fool would let George Bush and his cronies define who those terrorists are without any proof but repeated charges of "Weapons of Mass Destruction", atc. and then blindly follow them into a slaughter of innocent people. And for every dead innocent, we have created another terrorist or two or three.
Isn't it possible that the people of Iraq, even some of them, are fighting to get the US invaders out of their land? If a foreign army occupied Portland, ME, I know I would. Is this too sophisticated for you to comprehend? Or too unpatriotic?

Indonesia has a complicated set of circumstances that it's dealing with and it would probably be a mistake to try to assign one specific reason for the terrorist attacks in that country. In the case of the Bali bombings, the fact that one of the targets was the US consulate, and the other target was a nightclub that was heavily frequented by Australians, along with the fact that the US with the help of Australia, was preparing to wage an invasion of Iraq, suggests a very strong probability that the terrorists attacks were linked to US and Australian foriegn policy. Other terrorist incidents in Indonesia appear to be connected to separatists movements within Indonesia against the Indonesian government.

The most recent terrorist attacks in Turkey were against Jewish and British targets. Turkey has strategic relationships with both Israel and the coalition of countries involved in the war against Iraq, which includes the UK. Those strategic relationships put Turkey at risk of terrorist attacks related to the US and UK led war against Iraq, as well as Israel's Palestinian policies.

The terrorist attacks in the Phillippines are linked to the efforts of separatists who want to establish an independent state in the southern part of the Phillippines.

Fight freedom's fight against Axis of Evil

    * Our goal is to prevent regimes that sponsor terror from threatening America or our friends and allies with weapons of mass destruction. Some of these regimes have been pretty quiet since September 11, but we know their true nature. North Korea is a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction, while starving its citizens.
    * Iran aggressively pursues these weapons and exports terror, while an unelected few repress the Iranian people's hope for freedom.
    * Iraq continues to flaunt its hostility toward America and to support terror. The Iraqi regime has plotted to develop anthrax and nerve gas and nuclear weapons for over a decade.

States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. The price of indifference would be catastrophic. We can't stop short. History has called America and our allies to action, and it is both our responsibility and our privilege to fight freedom's fight.

That same argument was used about Vietnam antiwar protest. That was another war with ill-defined objectives and no end in sight. It cost over 57,000 American military personnel their lives and brought much misery to your country and many of those who returned home wounded in body, mind and/or spirit.

I do not doubt the courage of the guys and gals in Iraq. BUT, it is not an issue of patriotism or saying something as simple as what you have above. It wasn't in Vietnam and it isn't now. It is about the responsibility YOU have to request some serious answers from your leaders. The people fighting against the USA and allies in Iraq may not have been your enemy when the war started, but they are now. Suggesting that antiwar protest is aiding the 'enemy'--well, it's much like saying that people who protest poverty or poor housing or bad health care are responsible by their protest for what they are protesting; are somehow responsible for making their situation worse. I don't buy that argument. Nor do I 'buy' the reasons for the US being in Iraq.

I see no clear and obvious connection. In fact I have seen on TV, in an interview, Bush saying "of course there was no connection between Saddam and 9/11" I have searched for a transcript of that interview on the net and I cannot find it. I think it was on PBS.

Yes Bush has said on several occasions that there were WMDs in Iraq and that has so far been found to be wrong. The fact that others who are now calling Bush a liar said the same thing but now they are not accountable for what they said but they claim Bush is accountable.

If Bush was a liar, they were and are just as guilty of lying.

Well, brucie, some 48% or so thought that Kerry was a winning candidate. I guess people can be wrong, can't they?

US,

I saw the transcript of that TV interview you speak of, and yes Bush did say that. As I noted above, I was wrong. Makes twice in three decades, and the last time was when I thought I'd made a mistake.

However, the connection is there in the public's mind if polls are anything to go by. This administration has done a job of linking the two, and you will have encountered that info in many of the same places we both looked.

That 48% still thinks he was a winning candidate--just that he lost. Unfortunately, that half of the country does not perceive your President to be a winner.

It's on record with more than one witness that Bush demanded his staff seek a link to tie Saddam to 9-11, startiong on 9-12.

Here's another tidbit: "When interviewed by Tim Russert, Vice President Cheney asserted that Iraq was "the heart of the base" for the 9/11 terrorists and went on from there with a series of half-truths and outright deceptions about almost every topic broached, including his supposed lack of current "financial interest in Halliburton ." Mr. Cheney, a master of the above-reproach dead pan, just kept going, effortlessly mowing right through any objections by the host. The vice president was banking, as Dr. Dean did on "This Week," on a cultural environment in which fiction and nonfiction have become so scrambled  and can be so easily manipulated by politicians and show-biz impresarios alike  that credibility itself has become a devalued, if not archaic, news value. This is why the big national mystery of the moment  why do almost 70 percent of Americans believe in Mr. Cheney's fictional insinuation that Saddam Hussein had some hand in 9/11?  is not so hard to crack. As low as the administration's credibility may be, it is still trusted more than the media trying to correct the fictions the White House plants in the national consciousness." --Frank Rich, NMYT, 09.28.03

Can you glean us some quotes that say Saddam was responsible for 9/11?

All I see are insinuations.

"So, why do about 60% of the American people think they are? "


100-48 = 52.... So at LEAST 8% of those who voted for Kerry think that the Iraqis were responsible for 9/11...

I never got any impression from anybody that Saddam was responsible for 9/11.

All I have seen from the administration is that Saddam did support terrorism. There was at least one terrorist training camp in Iraq. Al Qaeda members evidently trained there. And he did pay the familys of Palestinian suicide bombers.

Therefore he should be a target in the war on terrorism like Iran and Korea.

As I recall the debate, when talkiing about the war in Iraq, Bush said something to the effect that we were atttacked and he had to defend the country. It was only when Kerry said that Iraq didn't attack us that Bush said "I know that!"

Now you may argue that Bush's first remark was only an implication, but saying that an attack on Iraq was a defense against the attack on 9/11 could only mean that he considered Iraq responsible. That's the concept behind the word "defense;" protecting oneself against those who attack you.

Likewise, when a reporter asked Ari Fleischer about the innocent civilians killed in Iraq he said "The true innocents are those who died on 9/11." That's the old terrorist catchphrase:"There are no innocents." And if you think Ari F and George W weren't trying to connect Saddam and 9/11 you are a different kind of innocent.
