That’s not quite phrased right, but I’m still really angry about the whole thing and that’s what I typed originally, so that’s what I’m leaving it at. I think you’ll figure out what I’m getting at anyway.
So we all know about honor killings in Iraq (and other backwards parts of the Arab world) by now. We know how horrible it is, and we can’t understand how anyone could think that lowly of a child, wife or sister (yes, of course it’s primarily women – although gay men are put to the death too of course!). We know all this, but it still hurts like a motherfucker every time it happens.
Just a reminder, this (READ THE STORY) is the kind of person the Iraq government condones. I’m assuming it’s the government because the “police” let him go and apparently congratulated him. And because it KEEPS HAPPENING. Hey, maybe they even got him a “I stomped and stabbed my daughter to death and all I got was this t-shirt” shirt. That would be swell wouldn’t it? He obviously thinks highly of the foreign soldiers that are risking their lives every day to help “liberate” him, and spending billions of dollars to rebuild support that government which is allowing him to kill his daughter.
MOTHERFUCKING FUCK FUCK FUCKER DIE. Seriously, I don’t have enough profanity to cover this. I debated just posting several pages of expletives, but that’s not really going to do any good is it? I’ve had 6 hours to cool down since I read the article, so I’m mostly ok. I’m sure a lot of this rage comes from being a parent – I cannot understand what would have to happen to someone to go from loving father one minute to stompy motherfucker the next, and have your brothers & sons along for the ride. I mean, I understand the cultural context of years of religious brainwashing that put him there – but still the stupidity amazes me. I can’t imagine what must happen to someone internally to turn the love of a child into this. There many, many Muslims who’ve come out against this kind of thing, and even claimed it’s not in the Koran – but who am I to know that answer? I guess it doesn’t really matter if it is or isn’t if Imams (or whatever they are called) keep teaching it and people keep doing it does it? You can’t argue with extremists.
Maybe if it was them in specific we were fighting. Can we get honor killing perpetrators on our terrorist watch list or something? They seem like good candidates for Guantanamo.
Maybe this whole war (and the billions we’ve spent on it) will be worth to me, in a tiny personal way, if some US/Blackwater/etc. troops “accidentally” break down that guys door and gun the motherfucker in the gut and leave him there to bleed to death. Because I’ve got news for you buddy – there are no 71 virgins. There is probably a whole lot of nothing, but I hope in my hard heart of hearts that there are instead, 71 Virginians (2:55 into that clip) waiting to ass rape that mother fucker with a scythe.
I’m just rambling here, but I guess what I’m wondering is:
Why are we spending so much money to prop up a country that supports this kind of thing? This is what billions of American dollars are going for? I thought we were spreading democracy and the American way and all that bullshit. Sure, thanks to GW we fucked up their country, but I don’t think I really care anymore. Let the motherfuckers rebuild it themselves, if someone sane happens to get power and starts cracking down on this crazy misogynistic bullshit (because you know they feel like their dicks are HUGE when they’re gang killing a young woman)…then maybe we give them some money. Otherwise, fuck ’em with a jackhammer.
I think I’m going to have to take something from the traditional right wing playbook and say that any country we give this kind of money to needs to SWEAR OFF THE GOD DAMN BULLSHIT. Or we nuke you. Or something to that effect. You don’t have to take our money…but if you do….you’d better play by our rules. Actually, I thought we had something like that in place, but I guess we’re not really applying the whole civil rights thing over there.
