Today we’re living in the new world – world of new threats and realities.
In the last century the humankind overlived two world wars and numerous local conflicts. If the first ones were because of the economic reasons, the second ones had mainly ethnical nature and sometimes were driven by two opposing ideologies –communism and democracy. The arch-enemy for the free-world- the USSR has long ago collapsed, but the new one soon emerged. It’s the international terrorism. The USA now fights off this threat to protect the free-world simultaneously planting and then breeding democracy throughout the world whether by force or by other means. But I am doubting about that the current administration is sincere with its citizens.Don’t you think it strange that only about a half and a year ago, before the Iraq campaign, Mr.
Bush and his administration claimed that have undeniable evidences that Saddam’s regime had links with Al-Quaeda and had weapons of mass destruction threating the whole free world. And now Mr. Ramsfeld says that in Iraq there is and were no weapon of mass destruction, and what about the Sadams links with Al-quaeda, there’s not a single evidence given till now…So we’ve been told lies??? Well, it’s o’k, as American soldiers in truth are protecting principles of democracy in Iraq, or maybe it’s also a lie… Possibly, maybe…Of course it’s a lie!!!! Want me to prove it???Just read the lines from the soldiers letters sent from Iraq to Michael Moore, scandalous “Fahrenheit 9/11” movie director at www.michaelmoore.com , or find some interesting information in columns by professor Michael Niman at http://mediastudy.
com/articles/, or just recall the revealed Abu Grabe prison story, or the adopted “Patriot” act… So then where is the democracy, protection of human rights etc.??? Well, I think the things are tossed away when there are large money on the bet. Would the States intrude into Iraq if there were no oil or it would lie deeply in Africa- surely not, irrespectively if there were a tyranny, ethnical cleansing, genocide or just rough violation of human rights or anything else threatening the “free-world”-these are not the reasons to start the invasion. The real reason for the ruling elite is only one – to get as much profit from the war as possible. And what about those who are running from the abuses in such states- if the man could be useful, has a bright head and educated- then “welcome!!!” If not then – “there’s no place for you here, buddy!”This essay is shorty and doesn’t reveal all the “war for democracy” issues as this is a much more complex subject and should be thoroughly studied in a period of much more then some days.
