[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] I participated in the march in NYC of 1/2 million people and I met many Iraqi's participating in the protest against the war. How can one writer make generalizations about a group of people (in this case 1000 Iraqi's) living in England. Did they speak to all or many of these people. To me those who generalize have been colonized in their ways of thinking and I include those of us born and living in the western worlds of USA and Britain. I would ask that writer when was the last time they went to Iraq. And how does bombing men and women and children and grandfathers and grandmothers help liberate them. That makes no sense. I don't think this war is just about oil or removing Saddam. History has proved that when the CIA wants to remove (even it's own citizens, like Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr. and the Kennedy's ), it does it very well. Allende in Chile, etc. I think this war ,if it happens, will be about trying to colonize the Iraqi people. If you beat down people enough they will learn to obey and follow orders. That's why the nuclear bombs were used in Japan. Instill fear in peoples soul and you can control them. I personally can't stop this craziness of those that want war, but I can not allow those who bring it to the world to control my thinking and they won't.
