CLO’s Rants For Liberty in Iraq

October 26, 2006 § 3 Comments

Who is Andrew Green? I don’t know Andrew Green but I have read an article written by him and it was one of the most interesting pieces that I have ever seen in the realm of blogs. Green’s article entitled, “Iraq Through a Rebel’s Eyes” suggested that the spirit of “Liberty” which founded this country is not the same liberty that the Bush Administration or U.S. military is trying to pass off to the Iraqi people.

On the contrary Green suggests that the meaning of “Liberty” which our founding fathers like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington fought for is found more in the hearts and minds of Iraqi insurgents than it is in the politician’s canned speeches. Green also notes that the insurgents are more closely related to the revolutionists militia’s than the Empire you see today colonizing and preaching democracy while ushered by a Humvee packed with ammunition and explosives. The strongest statement in the article suggests that Green is dangerously close to anti-American propaganda (however correct) when he wrote,

“The US government’s arm is tired. Even with one hundred and fifty thousand troops, a fortune in fuel and supplies, and the best weapons ever invented, all that power is having a rough ride.” (A. Green, Conservative Libertarian Outpost)

    Iraq near civil war – Is it avoidable?
    I have been hearing a lot on the news about Iraq nearing a civil war, and that it's only a few days away. Do you think there is still time to stop the inevitable? Or is it too late already?

    “Do you think there is still time to stop the inevitable?”

    This was not inevitable, it was by design in my opinion. I cannot believe that the leaders of Bush’s war campaign were so naive that they were unaware of the impact an occupation would have on the region.

    The fact is that the impetus for these civil conflicts was present in the region since WWI. However, more recently Saddam Hussein proved to be an effective buffer which subdued or supressed these festering differences. With President Hussein removed the opportunity to acquire political leverage, economic freedom and social influence seems attainable.
