Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week July 10, 2016

Posted by Garibaldy in Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week.
trackback

Broadly speaking, a boring week with not much of any interest, stupid or not. However, in the week of the Chilcott report and the commemorations of the Somme, Eoghan Harris strikes gold.

Like the glib dismissal of Great War Irish soldiers as ‘cannon fodder’, this demeans their sacrifice.

Like the Irish soldiers in World War One, the American, British and Irish soldiers who died in Iraq fell in the cause of freedom.

Surely that should be their proud epitaph?

So ‘in the cause of freedom’ isn’t glib?

Only on Planet Harris…

Bush and Blair went to war on false pretenses, so many of the
soldiers (and far, far more Iraqis) would still be alive today if they
hadn’t started their bloodbath on behalf of Harris’ nebulous “freedom”.

Tremendous track record of prediction that man: “Already, as I predicted in the lead up to the war, the neoconservative hawks have done much better than the liberals in getting down to the dynamics of opening up the gulf to democracy. Already, and this I predicted too, there is substantial hope for an Israeli-Palestinian settlement now that Saddam no longer scowls at Israel.”
