This is a one hour interview/conversation between two media personalities -
Actor Mr. Woody Harrelson and Jewish born Academic Scholar and
Author Mr. Howard Zinn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_Zinn It should be
acknowledged that the late Howard Zinn was an anti-war activist
and this may have affected his views as stated in this video being uploaded
here in which he recounts that George Bush simply said he didn't really care
as to whether Iraq had any weapons of mass destruction at the time - the
prospect that he might get them in the future (for revenge perhaps) was his real
concern, he asserted back then apparently. Zinn also makes clear that in his
"the entire world" was against the destruction of Iraq which took place.
should certainly count me in among those certainly too.
In my own view, (my
parents are of middle eastern descent despite my own sense
of Identity being
mainly Italian-British altogether - without any doubt whatsoever) Iraq only invaded
Kuwait after asking permission of the USA (on
July 25th 1990 in a video recorded
session subsequently released into the public domain) (despite it it being none of
their business I think) - having put the question to then US Ambassador to Iraq Ms.
April Glaspie in advance
Iraq was in a good moral position to insist that the few
sheikhs in Kuwait who
controlled oil riches there share with other Arab brethren in
my own regard to social justice in these matters thinking in particular of the good
folks in Lebanon of which there are a good many I believe too!
There was no
excuse on gods green earth for the massive destruction of Iraq by western forces
which followed. George Bush and Tony Blair were in my opinion bigots against a
real stronghold at the time of what remained of a more fully
vibrant human spirit
on the planet (which cared for its own in genuine merit) - despite any pleas to
ignorance on the merits of the Iraqi position in invading Kuwait I believe. The
sanctions also took a real toll on what remains of the human spirit in the area (the
same applies to previous sanctions against the Iranians too I believe)
east has enough problems with religious fanaticism, oppressive regimes related
thereto (Saudi Arabia in particular) and inhuman terrorists that are home-grown
freaks that defy sanity in what is the realm of conceivable human conduct. We
must do our bit to annihilate all of these impediments to a civilized existence for all
good folks who remain in the area in general. But we must do what we must to
eliminate poverty for the good which exists there and to prevent further harm
through unnecessary wars and renewed sanctions (such as Trump keeps
threatening against our folks in Iran) - on these whom I consider a good enough
people to have given me a beautiful start in life with their generosity of spirit and
kindness of a genuine Christianly spirit I found.
