Doug asked that Deuce and I join an effort to bring the al-Qaeda massacre of Baqubah villagers to the attention of the MSM who seem to have ignored the a story. My initial reaction was to wonder if the Iraqi people were made aware of the story? What are the Iraqi people going to do about the murders? When are the Iraqis going to tire of the senseless bloodletting? To the rest of the world, what are another dozen or so murders when a single car bomb has killed bystanders by the hundreds? Iraq is ground zero for the world's insanity and barbarity and the sad story of these Baqubah deaths will go relatively unnoticed. Everyone knows that life is cheap in the Islamic world.
If it's not al-Qaeda killing someone, its Sunni insurgents killing Shia police recruits or Shia militants taking revenge on Sunnis who dominated the Shia for many, many years. Then there's the Bathists or nationalists, or communists. And what about the Salafists funded by Wahhabist? Iran trains and equips Hezbollah or Hamas and sends shaped charges into Iraq. Then you have the Taleban and the madrassas in Pakistan and in Africa, the Arab muslims are wiping out the black muslims in Darfur. In Palestine the Fatah terrorist crooks are battling for supremacy with the religious fanatics Hamas. Nearly 100,000 have died in the fighting in Algeria. Southern Thailand is under assault. From western Africa to the Phillipines, Islamists are making life hell for everyone else.
On top of all that madness, you have the tribal and family tensions. Tribes fighting tribes and families killing themselves. Even in the formerly civilised UK, the Islamoidiots employ bounty hunters to track down and kill wayward children. Then there's the issues of genital mutilation and arranged marriages where many first cousins have married each other. Don't get started on the slavery which was only outlawed in Saudi Arabia in 1964 and still exists in the Muslim world today.
And if the reports of murders aren't bad enough, all too often we read the gory details that the bodies were found with drill holes and other evidences of torture. This is a pathological madness on a scale which is incomprehensible and inexplicable to most people. And if you dare point out the common denominator, the Muslim associations will shout you down and threaten you in the courts. Your courts. The courts they will use until such times as they can switch them over to their courts where Sharia law is the practice.
My explanation is that the Devil is having a field day. He is getting rich off the souls of stupid, ignorant, corrupt humanity. But if I say such a thing in the wrong company, I am perceived as an ignorant Christian and no better and just as dangerous as the ignorant Muslims who are waging jihad all other the world. All over the world because the evil George Bush and Tony Blair conspired with the Jews to bring about war on Islam and all this mayhem is in reaction to western foreign policy and provocation. As though, if we would only leave them alone, the madness would go away as world peace and harmony return to the natural balance.
So in the "big picture" where US withdrawal from the intractable quaqmires of Iraq and Afghanistan could lead to the end of Israel with its six million people, what's another 16 Iraqi victims of al-Qaeda?
That's the sad truth about the Baqubah victims.
