Notes from THE HAVEN
Tuesday, December 16, 2003
Davina had asked some good questions of which I will again attempt to answer:
dav: thankee. but that's exactly the thing. what gives the usa any right to use just any sort of excuse to invade another country albeit there are other issues to deal with...?
There is no right. What gives Sadaam the right to kill his own people, what gives the US the right to invade another country, what gives Russia the right to invade its own land, what gives serbs the right to kill korats, what gives Pakistan the right to claim Kashmir nor India for that matter? Nothing... rights are not concerned in macropolitics, it never had been. What gave Brittain and France the right to dictate the treaty of Versailles to Germany that started the second world war? The fact that Germans were to blame? The fact that Endgland once invaded Germany, the fact that they both were part of the Roman Empire? of every random circumstance to action in History, the right has nothing to do with it. Does someone have the right to protect its home? Yes he/She does, this could be applied to countries. It is therefore an excuse worth using: attack for defense. Been practiced for years and years.
dav: and why do i feel that this is just a stupid scheme to make everyone feel better because they can't find osama bin laden?
Bin of the Laden is not so much a detached issue. When one superpower is attacked, which it was, it has the right to defend itself from further attach in venerability. The two are linked in the sense of power over the middle east and peopable attacks against Israel. And it is not about feeling better, till now, they hadn't found Sadaam... if they stillhaven't it would be the same issue... why haven't they.
dav: what does hussain have to do w anything anymore? his dad already invaded once. why this need to invade again? hmph.
Because he was producing long range missiles and building up his army, contrary to trade agreements set after the first Gulf War. If a ex-con breaks the law, he will be thrown back into prison.
dav: AND because such an excuse (womd) was used, he's pulled tony blair down now because everyone in england wants to know where they are... sheesh.
Tony Blair willingly went into war with the US to strengthen ties between the nations. France chose otherwise, its a choice. On top of this, the benefits of such an alliance would include a share of wealth from the oil and other spoils. Brittian were therefore followers as they have no power of their own, able to make a mark and strategic alliance with an army a hundredfold larger.
dav: speaking of the next president... george w bush or howard dean? or do you have someone else in mind??
Whatever monkey they elect, the outcome would run the same. Clinton made it big because he was good at public speaking and he was riding on the boom in economy. Perhaps he created demand, we hsall only find out in a few years time but every president had had their flaws. This monkey included.
