“Peace Advocates” Fail to Get the Choppy

March 7th, 2006 at 1:59 pm by Smantix

The NY Times brings an electrifying update on the status of those “peacemaker” hostages. STOP THE PRESSES! Status – Unchanged:

Three Western peace advocates abducted in November in Iraq were shown in a videotape on the Arab television channel Al Jazeera today, but a fourth man, an American, who was kidnapped with them did not appear.

Sound the alarm! As the non-scare quoted Christian Peacemaker Team members/specious “peace advocates” have yet to complain to their maker in person about US imperialist aggression, The Swords of Righteous Procrastination are threatening to fulfill my own Autumnal Prophecy:

I don’t hope it goes ok for them. That Tom Fox guy from Virginia writes for the nutball site Voices In The Wilderness – which is about as Looney Left as you can get.

Let me go on record as saying that I think this is a ploy to get ransom money out of Euro gubmints to give to their terrorist buddies.

If they chop of their heads, I’ll be glad to say I was wrong.

Not that Smantix’s House of Discount Prophecy and Waffles wouldn’t be a hit. I’m just saying that when the terrorists who you went to be a human shield for prop you up with food and shelter for over 3 months that I think you’re in on it. Especially when you include this statement in your latest bleat for releasing other terrorists and money:

“We also hold in our hearts the families of 14,600 Iraqis currently detained illegally by the multinational Forces in Iraq who likewise await the release of their loved ones. These detainees are being held without formal charges, without access to their families and legal advisers, and without recourse to a fair and open judicial process.”

Here’s how it works:

We call your bluff. Less talky. More choppy.

UPDATE: Finally, a change in status.

Man Who Plays With Fire Gets Burned

Fox’s body was discovered on Friday morning, although Clay did not say where in Iraq it had been found. It was also not clear how he died.

Though the cause of death and timeframe have not been released , some causes of death would be obvious to the naked eye.

Some dupe takes off to a warzone to play footsie with the murderers who have killed countless innocent civilians and we’re supposed to be surprised when someone who goes out looking for trouble actually finds it?

Darwin was wrong. Tom Fox was living proof of Survival By Accident. And now he’s not.

I was reminded of this piece in the Christian Science Monitor when the tragic news of the sad asshole broke:

Why they came

The reasons such volunteers came to Iraq are as many as those who now have the words “human shield” written on their Iraqi visas. Some among them estimate that a quarter are “true believers” who will stay “until there is peace.”
“I don’t really like the shouting for Saddam Hussein,” says Marta Gregorcic, a 26-year-old sociologist from Slovenia. But she says that, in her mind, she has “no choice” but to stay. “I would rather be here than sitting at home and watching this war take place on TV.”

Shades of gray

The experience has been an eye-opener for many Westerners here, unfamiliar with Iraq’s authoritarian regime. “A lot of shields were thinking it was black and white, and that we were on the side of good like Che Guevara,” adds Sands. “But it’s not black and white at all.”

Back in December the CPT released this statement:

“We are angry because what has happened to our teammates is the result of the actions of the U.S. and U.K. governments due to the illegal attack on Iraq and the continuing occupation and oppression of its people. CPT does not advocate the use of violent force to save lives of its workers should they be kidnapped, held hostage, or caught in the middle of a conflict situation.”

Consider it done! Keep telling yourselves that Tom Fox was killed because of white colonialism and US hegemony rather than a radical Islamic fundamentalist.

Today their ranks were thinned by one. A nation shrugs.

    I just had to lay the smackdown, once again, on the NitWittery for dowdifying. Pitiful display.

    As soon as I saw the statcounter showing links coming from there – I just knew it was going to be the SOS. Linky liars and the intellectual lilliputians that love them.

    Next on Montel!

    I can tell my post didn’t bother you none. ;)

  5. brittney Says:

    P.S. Why do I never get a trackback?

  6. Smantix Says:

    I’m pretty sure I can take it.

  7. brittney Says:

    Should I infer that 6MB only gives trackbacks to those with similar politics?

  8. Smantix Says:

    Some liberals trackbacked in this thread.

    We could try to wrangle up some training wheels for you if you’d like.

  9. brittney Says:

    No, it’s just that you used to. And now you don’t. Just wondering why precisely. You don’t owe me one, and I certainly don’t need it. Just found it curious is all.

  10. Preston Taylor Holmes Says:

    Brittney, there was no need to trackback to NIT for this post since Smantix didn’t link to NIT.

    I try to trackback to people when I link them, but it requires extra time, which I don’t have these days, so I’ve been doing less and less trackbacking, no matter the politics of a given site.

    If you’re talking about one of your trackbacks not getting through to us, then tell me what the problem is. I haven’t seen any come through the moderation queue.

    I didn’t mean this one, jut in general.

    I try to trackback to people when I link them, but it requires extra time, which I don’t have these days, so I’ve been doing less and less trackbacking, no matter the politics of a given site.

    Trackbacks are shit anyway. They are littered with spam unless you do them by hand, like you do. Good for you for all the effort. I couldn’t do it.

    Just wondering why the change, now I know. Thanks.
