Tibet-challenge to Iraq Conscience
[Submitted by a Guest Writer]
“If freedom-loving people throughout the world do not speak out against Chinese oppression and China and Tibet, we have lost all moral authority to speak on behalf of human rights anywhere in the world”.
Well what about “freedom-loving people throughout the world” speaking against the illegal US occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan? What about the Iraqi Holocaust? What about it Ms. Pelosi, have we not already lost “moral authority?”
What utter nonsense. What shameless duplicity, Ms. Pelosi!
“Perhaps it is our karma, perhaps it is our fate that we be with you at the time,” she said drawing a huge round of applause from the gathering of Tibetans after meeting the Dalai Lama.
Caught between Dalai Lama and the Chinese, Tibetans are probably oppressed [you’ll forgive the author’s improper use of the adverb “probably” as the rubber yard stick for oppression is overstretched.] What is the proper adjective to describe the political status of the Iraqi people amidst the Iraqi Holocaust?
Would it be safe to describe the ‘survivors’ of the ongoing Holocaust as browbeaten, subjugated, broken, demoralized, exploited or similar adjectives? Surely a people committed to genocide couldn’t possibly be described as oppressed. How could they be oppressed, if “oppressed” is already reserved for the Tibetans?
