Shame on the US.


The despicable Bush administration is playing it soft when it comes to the man in US-controlled Afghanistan who is on trial for his life because he converted to Christianity. Here is what the BBC reports on the US response so far: "The US made a subdued appeal for him to be allowed to practise his faith - but stressed it did not want to interfere." The man can be executed and the Bush Taliban comes up with a "subdued appeal" and a promise to not "interfere".

The US pointedly did NOT ask for the release of this man and instead emphasized the "sovereignty" of Afghanistan. Rubbish. The US invasion violated sovereignty for crimes of bin Laden. Whether you think that justified, or not, is not the issue. Respecting the sovereignty of nations is not the Bush style.

Nor should we forget that Bush was just over in Afghanistan claiming that as result of the US attack the country has now emerged from the tyrannical rule of the Taliban yet here we have a man threatened with execution, legally, because of his religion.The US knows it has the puppet strings in it's hands. If this man is sentenced to death the shame is not just on Afghanistan but on the US as well.

Addendum: In the face of mounting pressure George Bush has finally said something about this case. He said that he expected Afghanistan to "honor the universal principle of freedom". Ditto, Mr. Bush, ditto.

Oh, boy, seems the US failes in their victory huh? The desert may be conquered, yet the people are not. But this government, how come they 'liberate' the countrie, just to throw it back in the Taliban hell again. Would Bush be aware of this? Or would he be too buissy playing cowboy at his fake ranch?

Bush in one word: incompetent. Totally and absolutely imcompetent. Fools rush in where angels dare not tread and Bush is no angel. Basically he has no idea what he is doing and has no plan for accomplishing it. One can not change a culture by military conquest. And without a change in cultural values these nations will never be free. Just as the West was not free until it changed it's values. And values don't change at the point of a gun. Most of America's foreign policy problems for some time now are the direct result of their previous successes. The US jumps into WWI and that brings the war to an end, but one that directly lead to the rise of Hitler. The US jumps into WWII and that brings that war to an end leading to the Soviets enslaving half of Europe and the Communist Chinese taking over large chunks of Asia. That lead to the Cold War, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Government intervention doesn't work ANYWHERE. Not in the economy and not in foreign policy.

You need to keep up with current events. Long before you posted this the US had been trying to stop this.

It was kept up with current events. The post of the US saying it did not want to interfer was made within hours of it saying that publicly. Then when the pressure started building and the US started feeling the heat and recanted that view it was updated to reflect that. Both posts were done within a couple of hours of the event. This isn't CNN. This is a site of opinions about current events as they happen. And that means events can change.

I agree. The pressure put on by the blog world is crazy these days.

I respect your opinion and personally find you very enlightening as polemic but are you suggesting that CNN is not an opinion based network?

I used to think CNN was biased. Then I saw FOX and vomited. CNN is biased. My point is that they are on 24 hours and can update stories constantly. I can't.

I know what you meant. I agree Fox is biased but they rarely gord my oxen so i am not too worried, but CNN is a whole different story as are the three networks.

what bothers me about them is their implication that they are being objective when they are nothing more the schills for the left.

At least Fox makes efoorts to be liberal at times. the others make no attempt to be patriotic and spend a lot of their time selling out the country.

It pains me to see America fail so badly, the freedom from Taliban regime hasn't been established; people are no longer afraid for the Bin Laden actions, but now they're under threat of their own religion, say, isn'tm religion supposed to HELP people, instead of kill them? Well, I guess it's no news, all religions, in their search for power have gotten themselves into wars all over the place, power and money seems to be the only "drive" for today's religions. I doubt wether the buddhists are really still free of money and power issues, as when a religion gets a leader or vatican to rule it, things change from freedom to imprisonment, and from personal matter, to a group feeling.

In one word? God.
