Steven Cole on America’s genocidal love of killing swarthy civilians:
The Pentagon has decided not to bomb Iraqi oil fields and facilities that produce weapons of mass destruction, but will instead disable these with electronic attacks and information warfare. The problem with bombing the oilfields is that a post-war Iraq (and post-war oil markets) will need them. Bombing the weapons sites could cause civilian casualties and destroy needed evidence. Some of these attacks will be conducted by cruise missiles with new microwave warheads.
That’s right — we’ll be spending millions of extra dollars, and perhaps risking extra lives, just to make sure that we kill fewer Iraqi civilians, and that Free Iraq has an immediate source of income.
And all the “peace” activists have to offer is continued oppression, militarism, and brutality.
