Questioning motives

Dubya’s niggardliness was never more evident than in his initial pledging of $35 million for the 100,000-plus people killed and millions of lives ruined by the earthquake/tsunami in the Indian Ocean. Then he refused to work with the U.N., saying the U.N. did not have the institutions available to help with the disaster. The main purpose of the U.N. is to help in just such catastrophes. Either Dubya’s ignorance is boundless or his political pettiness is.

He is once again playing politics with the suffering of the world. His neocons will do anything to destroy the U.N. because it is the single most formidable entity standing between them and world domination. They are currently trying to remove Kofi Annan, an ethical man, because of some alleged financial irregularities of his son. Now the entire world, and hopefully some reality-blind Republicans, can see the smallness of Dubya and his neocons.

We must use every means available to us to resist the evils of this man. Victor Laszlo, the great freedom fighter in Casablanca, said, “If we stop fighting our enemies, the world will die.” For most of the world, Dubya is the great enemy, and the fighting is just beginning.
