John Pilger: 'They are afraid of you'

An excellent speech by John Pilger of Australia. Powerful and dead on.

"They are afraid of the old for their memory, They are afraid of the young for their innocence They afraid of the graves of their victims in faraway places They are afraid of history. They are afraid of freedom. They are afraid of truth. They are afraid of democracy. So why the hell are we afraid of them? ... For they are afraid of us."

What all of you should remember on this second anniversary of the brutal assault on Iraq is that you are not alone: that you are part of a great worldwide movement that refuses to accept the dangers and moral indecencies of Bush and Blair and Howard. Yesterday, all over the world, people like you expressed their defiance and anger at the unprovoked attack on Iraq, a defenseless country, and the killing of more than 100,000 people and the theft of their resources and the poisoning of their land: all of it justified by demonstrable lies.

Hard core.

I think it's finally starting to sink in for the average person LP. If they can fool us on the economy and Social Security (most Americans see Bush's plan for the fraud it is), then they probably fooled us on Iraq.

Time to wake up folks!

Hey Kenny, that is hard core. I love those two paragraphs, they are true. I think that we should all try our hand at a speech like this, and make it a cooperative effort, then send it to newspapers in our area.

I am guessing that Kenny is from the US. I know that the Pittsburgh Post Gazette would definitely publish it.
