The “difference” between an IED and a land-mine

Is the difference between a Militia Group (like those commanded by Washington) and the VietMinh or the Taliban “Insurgents” A matter of Semantic Perspective that’s vital to propagandists, espicially if the Propagandists don’t have anything better.
It’s the so-called “difference” between “conqueror” and “liberator” ,
USAF Bomber v Suicide Bomber
Decapitation with a sword and decapitation with a .50 caliber round fired frim a Vulcan electric motorized Gatling gun.

Waterboarding as War Crime when practiced by the Imperial Japanese Army and waterboarding as “enhanced interrogation” when done by the Imperial American USMC, CIA and DHS.

Tianmen Square and the Boston “massacre” or the Honduran “counterinsurgency”.

The Anschluss and “Regime Change”.

Genocide against European minority groups and Genocide against American Indians.

The list goes on, but the main difference is that Land Mines are forbidden for deployment and the Terrorist States who deployed them mandated to clean them out, destroy them and compensate the Mostly Civilian Child victims of their monstrous use (or their families).

In a treaty that the former ChickenHawk President refused to sign on the ridiculous notion that it violated U.S. Sovereignty…. even though the United States doesn’t actually deploy land mines or, (as in the case of the terroristic bombing and mining of The DR VietNam, which one of the Major Party presidential candidates from the last election was doing when he was captured) on territory that’s recognized as United States Territory.

Other than in the Insane Delusional definitions of the U.S. “nationalists” like Bush and his demented disciples. (Special “shout out” to our Homeboys Bob Newman, Dobson and Haggard on that)

There are two major parties in our Corporate Dictatorship, one votes as a bloc, no exceptions, and anybody who breaks ranks is called a traitor and shown the door. The “Other Party” currently in the majority in the House, Senate and Executive branch has enough Right Wing extremists, only the Republican Press calls them “moderate democrats” to sway any ratification of the treaty to either vote it down, or have it watered down to a Null Argument, or worse, charge the Children of Afghanistan and VietNam with crimes for destroying United States Government Property by exploding “our” Land Mines.

I bet Dobson and Haggard and “Gunny” Bob would love that option.
They probably have pictures of little kids with various parts blown off that they use for Porn. “Gunny” Bob is allegedly a Vet, I don’t know if he has a collection of human hands harvested from the kids he killed during his “service” but he strikes me as That Type.

Yeah, that’s confrontational. So is calling the Quakers “Terrorists” because they dared to ask His Royal Lowness to stop lying, and published detailed lists of “Gunny” Bobs lies.

A paid Right Wing Propagandist like him would appreciate the “Difference” between a Land Mine and an IED.

Gazette advocates for Iraq withdrawal

LTE- Regarding your editorial IRAQ: NO MORE HOLD AND PRAY, I’m very glad to see your paper finally suggest that “this war should make Americans more skeptical the next time a political leader suggest war.” While your editorial now recommends that US forces get out of Iraq, will the Gazette also advocate for a just withdrawal? In particular that out of care not to abandon the Iraqi people, instead of sticking around to shoot more, we should fund an international force to rebuild their country. America owes a large war reparation to the victims of its illegal war.

If the usual critics now taunt you with accusations you want to “cut and run,” reassure them the US must certainly cut an extraordinarily large check for what it has done. If the American public thinks the war has hurt our economy, wait until we face up to giving restitution to those we’ve harmed. We all understand that what cost 1.2 trillion to destroy, will cost several trillion more to restore. There can be no peace without justice.

By the way, the fiasco in Iraq was predicted by many, before it started. You laud the skepticism now, why not cut the dissident voices a little slack the next time they are trying to prevent wayward and wanton actions?
