Where Native America meets pop culture
Not sure what you're implying here, Rob. I hope you're not succumbing to the disease of "moral relativism."
Writerfella here -- When the WTC was attacked on 9/11/01, there should have been two more Natives in the North Tower. But the man had gone celebrating with his son the night before and so neither were present that morning at their place of business. But the man lost four Native employees who had gone to work on time that day. Plus, he lost his business entirely. On 9/11, the Al-Qaeda did not attack just the USA, they attacked the world. As history will play out in the first half of the 21st Century, Al-Qaeda will find that the world will have turned against them and they will be gone...All BestRuss Bates'writerfella'
Don't the pictures speak for themselves, Carole? If not, what's your interpretation of the "Fighting Terrorism Since 1492" t-shirt? It was invented by Native people, you know, not by me. If it isn't obvious, what do you think they're saying with their slogan?
As for moral relativism, the Iraqi people didn't harm a hair on our heads before we launched a war that killed tens of thousands of them. In my moral book, tens of thousands isn't just relatively worse than zero. It's infinitely worse.
Writerfella here -- Entirely correct, Rob, because Saddam Hussein kept such a tight rein on his own people that Al-Qaeda sought to overthrow him so that such a rein could be ended. But then they hit upon a plan that, if they attacked the US of A, the sitting President would do the very job they needed done. And it happened. Now, Al-Qaeda need only wait for American citizens to realize that they were led down the garden path and then force a withdrawal. This will occur, despite what the Republicans want or desire, and the civil war that has raged for ages before Saddam can continue. Know that civil war between warlords had gone on in Indo-China for centuries before EuroMan inserted his nose into their business. Does it not seem logical that the warlords there did exactly the same acts that put the US of A into their equation, thus deriving the very result for which they had been seeking?All BestRuss Bates'writerfella'
