"......abstract political realist analysis ...."
my response to your comment on 2/9/05 10:52 supposed to appear yesterday, strange that it didn’t. Ok, this is my last try.
The exploitation of sympathy earned from event of 11/9 made people feel cheated by US. To the agony of many, Bush was again stupidly elected by his supporters. Those who chanted it’s their own business to vote their own leader, none of others but the Americans don’t mind their own business despite being told so, still supporting this silly & dangerous president in pitting all corners in the world into each other, Middle East, East Asia, Central Asia etc. Now crashing with nature's rage.
Surely no country is perfect, but none goes around creating propaganda lies such as US governments and its UK poddle.
The criticism came amidst this hurricane is not directed at the sufferings by the people affected, more on Bush’s administration, so much for his claim as superpower in the world, wanting to crush & punish those who don’t co-operate with US.
As for the comments on “Surely we feel the sympathy for the affected people in New Orleans, but somehow, emotions sometimes get disturbed for the fact that among this group could be the very people who supported Bush’s foreign policy”…
I was just being honest about this mixed feeling, to truth, not as hypocrite as you people, wondering if those who’ve supported Bush would have awaken by now for reflecting upon why they had voted him, why should it need a great catastrophe to wake up to their senses in humanity?
Shouldn’t they vote him for life improvement & safety first in their immediate environment than chasing ghosts in those senseless terrorist theories? For the gift in return to Bush’s stupid policy, more and more terrorists are born everyday. His terrorist fantasy has really come true. Bush is almost putting all Americans in prison, besides Canada, Australia & UK(London maybe), where else do you feel safe? Now not even home.
It’s not funny to see the suffering in this disaster, it’ll however be quite amazing to see Bush’s reaction, to see how he acts as human. The radio just said the people felt like poor strayed animals in the streets.
Many countries are suffering from natural disasters lately & currently, drought, forest fires, flooding, typhoon, we rush to help with all we can, least so is to criticize its governments. With US, being an exception, many would still help but with an awkward caution, not wanting to be seen as supporting Bush’s government & his gangsters. Should this happen in Canada or Mexico, it’d have been a complete different world reaction.
As for press freedom, I don’t deny some governments control its media tightly, but if you really get a chance to read that in version original, you’ll know it controls more on its accuracy than fantasy, inevitable to have omissions here & there for infos with insufficient grounds, at least there won’t be phantom-like news, fabrication to instill fear, lies or threats. Rumors or hearsay will surely be out in respectable press. Unlike US or UK, claiming themselves to be world leaders, the so called press freedom is irresponsible, so permissive to lies, worse still, so biased into creating tensions on carefully selected subjects, painting untrue pictures of other countries to boast the best of its own, then these lies are even mobilized into actions, that is where it offends. Is it any wonder they ( & its government ) become targets of criticism?
