BS: US foreign policy - an example to us all (105* d) RE: BS: US foreign policy - an example to us all 05 Aug 02


I gotta feel sorry for the Kurds. The US uses them as a convenient excuse to send our boys and girls anywhere we want in the past decade, and it isn't for the ultimate good of the Kurds. Turkey is our ally and we never complain about their ongoing systematic attempts at the "ethnic cleansing" of their own Kurdish citizens. Nor has the US ever called Turkey to task for the ethnic cleansing of 200,000 Cypriots and the ongoing occupation of 40% of Cyprus, despite the repeated pleas from Cyrpus. And then there are the Armenians... I fear Turkey may be one of our future middle-east mistakes that comes back to bite us.

And yet... one of the reasons Iraq is actively deporting the Kurds is because the Kurds are engaging in their own "cleansing" the Assyrians from what the Kurds view as their territory.

Dubya is just itching to go down in history as finishing his daddy's work. At least daddy had an idea of what foreign policy was (however much I disagreed with it), but out fearless leader doesn't seem to have a clue that the calculus of his actions goes far beyond 1+1.
