No Title.

There is no Title to this post. I will let you make your own.

I am in a very strange kind of mood. I am listening to Tracy Chapman. I like that singer a lot. There is something very genuine about her. I guess she represents 1% of the American population. A 1% hope.

If I were a gambler, I would say that the odds are not in my favor. Not with a 1% for sure.

I still can't shake that strange feeling off my shoulders...It must have been that interview with that young Afghani girl, who found her foot in tiny pieces whilst she was with other women in a garden, celebrating something. She said " I saw my foot lying next to me in pieces. My cousin was also laying dead right next to me...They (the Americans) saw that we were only a group of women, and they attacked us nonetheless. The Americans are animals. "

Notice she did not say the American soldiers or the American Pentagon, or the American army or the American administration or the American government, or the American neocons -- are animals. She said Americans are animals.

Yep, that is what she said - Americans are animals.

I don't blame her one bit. I would only add that animals are too kind compared to the Americans. And I would not forget to include the British either.

I receive many emails. A lot of them are pure crap. A lot of them preach to me about love and forgiveness. A lot of them are blaming the victim. A lot of them dictate to the victim what words, what feelings, what thoughts she must or must not have. A lot of them talk about the victim being an angry bitter hateful thing. But none of them, NONE of them acknowledge FULL responsibility. None.

This for me is the height of arrogance. The epitome of immorality. The ultimate lack of any form of ethics. This for me is a sign of a doomed, decadent, degenerate, intellectually, socially, politically, morally putrefied nations - called America and "great" Britain.

You know something, I know quite a lot about your culture, your line of reasoning, the way you process your thoughts, the way you interact...I know YOU. I know you inside out, and I can understand that you hate that so much.

I have heard so many of you talk, debate, argue, express, think and rationalize...

When it comes to you, you are very meticulous about what your rights are. You are very articulate about your needs, wants and desires. You are very fastidious about what you believe is right and wrong. You demand to be heard. You request an audition. You press for answers. You seek solutions for you. You, you, you...

And above all, you whine that you need to have it all VALIDATED.

And boy do you go on a roll by stating so affirmatively - My feelings are important. What I think is crucial. Hey I have rights here. I am an individual. This is not on. This is not acceptable. I will not tolerate that. This is wrong. This is...

You do that don't you ? Yes you do.

Because you think you matter so much. You think your life is so precious and you want to make the best out of it. You believe that you are entitled to some form of Justice. You will go to any length to get what is your due. From tribunals, to courts, to the police, to whatever authority you can lay your hands on.

Your issue can be small or big, it does not matter. You are entitled. It is my right - you say to yourself.

You do that. I know you do. I KNOW YOU DO.

You are such a special individual aren't you ? So "charitable" when you need to be and so hard and pressing when necessary. You have your boundaries and limits. You have sign posts all over the place saying "don't trespass"...You are so civilized and so evolved compared to others, "lesser ones."

"Lesser ones" that you take to as objects of curiosity because you want to learn how the "other thinks and feels". As long as the other does not trespass the limits you have imposed on him. As long as the other does not tell you your truth to your face. As long as the other does not resist you and your ways.

Should the other dare to voice or complain, your dirty fingers are quick to point in his direction and your smelly moralistic tones are elevated.

You go and dig in your repertoire of do's and dont's, what is acceptable, what is not and you are shocked beyond belief that the other is not grateful to you.

You want someone in your own image. In fact you are the most fake hypocritical nations and peoples I have ever come across. And trust me, I have been around.

You can hate and oppress with impunity. You can brutalize, rape and torture with impunity. You can destroy and kill with impunity. You can ravage and ruin lives, millions of lives with impunity. You can contaminate generations to come with your acts...But you don't stop to think of your deeds. Yet you are so quick to point at the victims, at the receptacles of your own hatred, of your own injustice...

You are so good at doing that, but not with me. Not with me you motherfuckers. I know You so well. So damn well. And I know You hate it so much. And the more You hate it, the better I feel, because You are exposed to me.

You are naked in front of me. Totally naked. You stand naked with your thoughts and your deeds. Your collective thoughts and deeds. Your arrogance is there, your denial is there, your hatred is there, your crimes are there. You can't hide them from Me just as you could not hide them from this young Afghani girl. You can't hide them from the millions of Iraqis and Afghanis whose lives you have totally destroyed. TOTALLY DESTROYED.

But you want someone to validate your feelings ? Fuck you bastards. You will not get any validation from me.

You want to build bridges of understanding and forgiveness ? Fine, assholes.

Repair all the damage and bring back the innocent dead ones. Give us back our limbs, our eyes, our hands, our feet, our loved ones, our homes, our lives... Give them back WHOLE the way you took them and then we can talk about forgiveness and love.

But you can't. You will never be able to. You are only good at destroying. You are only good at wiping out what you can't have, can't possess or can't own.

No, you are not animals, you are less than animals. And if the title of that post is not suitable for you, choose your own.

Wait 'til next year to see what we will do to each other.

With our economy totally imploding? And we have it easy. Our economy is imploding on its own. We're not having the shit bombed out of us, but that can change.

I'm a rebel. The feds might come to take me away, provided I'm not too small time to deal with. (I'm probably around 1% as famous as you.) I also have a pitchfork. Literally.

The idea of that is to get myself killed right away, but if I can send one of those bastards over the rail of our third story pad; I'm game.

I can't wait until this last vestige of Rome is completely gone (U.S./U.K.). I'll not forgive the Visigoths for not doing to Rome what Rome did to Carthage.

A dream from 2 Fridays ago:

Beside an outdoor table, at the seaside.
Two young women were speaking in Arabic and gazing out to the sea.

Iturned to look.

Big waves, taller than a person were coming in. Each wave grew as it reached shallower water. As the wave would grow in height, it stood upright...then tilted forward and crashed down.

I looked into each wave closer. I began to see images in each wave. Faint and blurred at first. Then I saw them.

Each wave had a row of soldiers in them. They were dead. Some fully dressed. Some had torn pans or sleeves form their shirt. A few even had hats on still. They were all dead.

All lined up in a perfect row,..side by side...dead soldiers......the waves would carry them in....stand them up.........and scatter them as the wave crashed down..........dead bodies of soldiers were building up in the shore.

I woke up

Layla, you never told us about your thoughts and feelings in the troubled months preceding the invasion ?

How were you and people around you living under the impending danger, how was your government preparing you, what was the atmosphere like ?

"She said Americans are animals."
millions of Afghani, Korean, Vietnamess, Red Indian, Black, Somali, and Iraq girls have said that to. %99 of Americans can only hear their white, forked tongued priests and rabbis, and the the remaining %1 just sing about the wrong of it, anyone try to do more is silanced or murdered, ask the Palestianains and Palastinain "lovers".

Zionists have been breading the Americans for centuries to be animals, murderous US army (death squad) for hire, no guilt, no shame - best animals zionists could breed anywhere on Earth, gulable, greedy, foolish and cruel - they pick the most corrupt to rule them and wonder why the rest of the world hates them as their bombs and soldiers kill millions like her.

There is no America, remove the mask and you'll see Israel stareing back at you - no need to forgive or forget either, just watch them fall into hell, even if you only take the price of their murderers, not the stealing, gread and other stuff - just the murder, they have a very long way to fall into hell - pity them, and thank God you are not like them in any way.

Americans are trained by their White zionist religions to hate so hard that they do not mind being milked for %400 billion then $700 billion, as long as their nice brave army keeps killing non-White little girls around the world they are happy - zionists take another trillion but keep on killing so their American animals are kept happy.

Obama has already set Afghaistan as a target, the 6 million Afghainis Bush murdered were not enough for the zionists - and Obama has a weakened Somaalia to destroy a bit more, and Pakistan to - Americans are going to be so happy with all those murders that the zionists will get billions more - so everyone in White land will be happy.

When the Americans go to hell, they will not have to ask why - millions of dark little girls will be watching them walk into it, and the girls parents will be watching to - they could not do anyting on Earth, where White man permits no justice, but in the next world little girls will enjoy the Justice that White man hates so much.

Don't worry about America, Israel is already poisoining it with it's usuall corruption - Republicans done, now it's time for the Democrats to taste it. Just be glad that the zionists hate you, their is nothing safer than being hated by them, it is when they pretend to like you that you are in great danger, in the worst case you might end up like them.

As for Iran, it'll become a Muslim nation again despite anything the Mullas do - they are much worst than the Americans, they have no guilt and so much hate that the whole Persian Shia nation wants American soldiers to murder lots more Afghani and Iraqi girls for them, and Iran has 100s of death squads to help the Americas to - they are the zionists second best animals with the Americans being the best, but both compete in serving their blood loveing zionist god.

Obama is a zionist, his adim is more zionist than the Israel government, so just start counting the lies, he'll outdo Bush in 3 years at the most, and his zionist masters have him set to murder millions for them to.

"As for Iran it will become a Muslim nation again"

I really fail to understand why you should care so much about it.

Let the debased be damned and pronto.
Anonymous said…
At least with the Yanks you can get to "know them" - and take measures accordingly.

With the Persians it's a different damn more complicated.

A spark of optimism: in the previous post you used the term "vying". Does that mean that the US-Iranian ambiguous alliance-rivalry is becoming less and less an alliance and more and more a rivalry ? If so, could such a rivalry be exploited to Iraq's advantage...could the two be somehow used one against the other in the near or distant future ?

Little about us!

The spot on earth, where my people has been living in 9000 years, became the nation Sweden between 1000 - 800 years ago.

The Swedish people, have since historical times been able to threaten their kings with deathpenalty if they done or were about to do anything stupid.

But not allways offcourse....

Being strong and united enough to stop our kings warmongering during the 15:th century wars that made our king/country becoming the ruler over 5 countries wasn't possible.

WE also fought the Germans Danes and Russians while they where attacking us during those years.

And we supported our brothers neighbours the Norwegians, to become an own nation free from the Swedish state.

This is history now ..but we know what we did wrong against others and what others done wrong to us.

During the last 200 years we have carefully avoided war with anyone.

I'd like to give you a couple of things that you might use as parts of your weaponry.

Check this out:

Some words: Serendipity and Refractiare (regarding a very important mindmode or attitude)

Some books: An author worth while an acquaintance is Jan Myrdal.

His books are many but his early "Confessions of a Disloyal European" is interesting.

As his childhood trilogy starting with
"Another world"
"12 Going on the 13:th" is overwhelming..

Hizbollah did a long interview in their paper Al-Intiqad with him somewhere around January February 2006).

His books are translated into English German French Chinese Spanish and to Hindu, maybe you can find some in Arabic.

If you are not worked out with everything else that runs in you .. take a look at some of his works ...I don't think you will be disappointed.

B as Burnin/the burnin fire in my soul.

Layla, true Iraqis like you should make a mission of "singling out" a potential new Salah el Deen/Saddam Hussein from the anonymous resistance crowd.

Whatever is left of the Great Iraq, She need a charismatic banner holder to represent Her cause before the world.

Layla, I hope you realize how lucky and blessed you are to have such a wonderful friend as Mrs Paola Pisi of Uruknet.

Every time you feel your faith in the restoration of one united Iraq drying up, drink from her clear fresh vision and it will be revived.

Take it easy on me .

Anonymous no.1 -
Distilled as in ? Is that like some hard pressed juice that anyone who tastes it cannot deny it ?


You never fail to make me smile. You are one of the rarest American woman/women, who is so lucid, it's flabbergasting. Just shows that the 1% does exist.


I am sure you can come up with a few lines yourself...give it a go, no sails and no anchor.


Will you still have premonitory dreams in heehaaa land ? In any case, that is a good omen for me.


As you may well know, I write when inspired, and not to please the reader. The day I will be inspired to write about that phase, I will let you know. In the meantime, Riverbend covered it quite well...

Too many are burnin'...Am not sure which one you are least on this blog.

Thank you for the introductory lesson in Viking history...

How does that apply to me ?

I do understand that you nordics are terribly proud of something or the other...and I will check out the author, I am open to new stuff...But please tell me how that applies to me ? Unless you consider yourself a YARDSTICK ?!
Then, that would be very self defeating, to say the least...

another burnin'

Yes I am for real. Last time, I was in the shower, this early evening to be more precise, I palpated myself, and realized I was my utter surprise.

I am not the editor of URUKNET, but I do believe that they allow comments...

I am curious as to what you have to tell me ! Mind you, you can always leave your comments here...:-)

paola's fan,

Yes I am very lucky. Paola Pisi is one of the most wonderful and most honest persons I have come across...
I like to think that she in her own way is also lucky...

We happen to share a common vision...and for that am very grateful and lucky...indeed.

certainly the Nordic countries are nobody's role model, unless we want more of the same destruction of the world and its peoples, while a small very-white group gets to hold the upperhand. Just ask them each what they have done to the Saami, the indigenous peoples of north Europe. What abuses they inflicted and continue to perpetrate on the Saami. Also, don't even get me started on IKEA, the Norwegian corporations destroying the seas of Canada and Chile with their salmon farms, the Finnish forestry companies ruining forests in eastern Canada, and the racism spewed on Scandinavian blogs. And coltan, cellphones and Nokia. And, not to forget, the arrogance and injustices hiding behind policies of equality that are held high like a banner, and the rise of the neo-right and uber nationalism. The big problem at times is how to tell folks who think they have it right that in fact they do not.

Here's the only place where you are blind:

Even totally justified anger kills the one who has it - and you are become suicidal.

You demand justice, amends, reparations. Rightfully so, rightfully so. But now, if we few americans who agree with you were to respond, "yes, you are right, let us join with you in our own despair", you would spit even on us.

So, Layla, finally, after loving you for months and years, I say, "I love you, Layla. You are so right about so much and about so many of us. But, fuck you, because you decide to be dead to yourself".

Be at peace.

thanks Django, whatever ...

And Fuck you too. With all my love from Iraq.
