THIS awesome display of military might yesterday (english)
16 Mar 2003
Modified: 02:16:46 AM
Britain's Iraqi community has delivered a petition protesting over the French anti-war stance.
Supporters of Iraqi Kurds petitioned the French embassy in central London, citing years of oppression and torture carried out under Saddam Hussein's regime as justification for war.

But French leader Jacques Chirac is opposed to war and may use his country's power of veto in the United Nations security council to block a resolution permitting conflict.

Azos Rashid, a 20-year-old student and member of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, was among those delivering the petition.

He said: "Chirac is vetoing the hopes and lives of people in Iraq.

"I have to say the French embassy refused to acknowledge us. We were standing outside for 15 minutes when they did not acknowledge us."

He added: "They (embassy staff) then questioned us over why we were picking on France and they were saying 'Chirac is a nice man'."

Mr Rashid pledged to do more in the future to highlight the pro-war arguments.

The protest has coincided with the 15th anniversary of the Halabja massacre, where 5,000 Kurds were killed after the Iraqi government ordered a chemical weapons attack.

He added: "Millions of Kurds have died under Saddam. He is imposing his own sanctions on Kurds in the north.

"We want to liberate Iraq. Iraqis would rather live under George W Bush than Saddam Hussein."

16 Mar 2003
What you want to do is to Take Iraq for yourselves by supporting the Bush War Machine. Saddam took your civil rights. Bush is taking Ours - and you support Bush? Hypocrite.

This Fascist-right wing FLOODING of a leftwing progressive Volunteer News service - Should be Contained. After all not even One Left wing caller can get in on all the Right wing talkshows.

And this is a Volunteer Run site - only one of its kind. SO:::


PUT THESE RIGHTWING CHAUVINISTIC PICTURE GUYS - THESE SHALLOW WAR-DROOLING TROGLODYTES, ON A ***RIGHT WING**** PAGE MADE ESPECIALLY FOR THEM ON INDYMEDIA.

AND LET ANY FOOL WHO WANTS TO SEE THEM - CLICK ON THE **RIGHTWING PAGE** - ALL STUPIDITY IN THE SAME SPOT IS A GOOD IDEA.
Your rantings ... (english)

Do you know how FOOLISH your post are? Childish?
I could be mistaking.. it wouldn't be you don't want
to loose your stature, your "position" ( held in you
mind if no where else ) among your peers? if people read
both sides of the coin. We hear ALL about American
Bad Boys ( hey, do you know your family history/lineage? )
were thy part of the people who tried to exterminate my
race here in america -- and then write about it as if
Indians were the bad guys?

Like my brother said, I don't play on the I'm indian your
( what ever ).. I am a warrior and we lost what we had to
better warriors not whiners and whimps.

Are you afraid to look at the dead kurd Mom and Child ..
what if you had to see the whole picture -- see all 5000
( mainly women and children ) killed by a madman? Would
it even bother you? probably NOT.. you have an agenda..
that is to do in the one place in the world all can
exercise a freedom to do many things ( not whine when some
restrictions are imposed to protect the masses from the
few who will kill any one..unless they are islamic ).
including what you are doing here.

I for one who has been many places done many things..
appreciate this collectives open forum.. and even
though there are a few whiners like you who pass through on occasion ( I read both sides of the coin ) most articles
posted are to the point around an issue..

If one doesn't agree, they can use their mind and POST
a reply -- not try an enforce a closed policy that does
not appear to exits to date.

Where were you when I march in S Boston against Louise Day Hicks agaist racism and got my head split open by a punk
on the street who blind sided me?

( among many other things )

I am a Warrior - but I am not a blind warrior and will not
close my eyes to both sides of the coin because some wannabe
stalinist, trostyike ( what ever ) et al, orders me too.

PS: Pardon my spelling my mommy and daddy wern't rich and I
only have a GED.. does that slump my credibility or what?

Get a life.
