Galloway praises Iraq 'martyrs' -- Decides he's Jane Fonda

In the most startling move British MP George Galloway could make short of announcing a sex change, he decided to become Jane Fonda. Ms Fonda, during the Vietnam war, decided that if the United States was wrong to invade Vietnam (they were) that somehow made the Viet Cong somehow sweet selfless good guys (they weren't).

So if the US was wrong to invade Iraq (probably) it doesn't make the other side right -- usually -- and a politican with his experience should know this -- the opposite of wrong is usually a different kind of wrong

The right-wrong assumption may be an ok conclusion for a cat-faced cutie whose only real attribute was having a perky bubble ass, but seems rather shockingly naive from a member of parliament:

Mr Galloway claimed the insurgents were ordinary Iraqis defending their country against "foreign invaders".

"It can be said, truly said, that the Iraqi resistance is not just defending Iraq. They are defending all the Arabs and they are defending all the people of the world against American hegemony."

In one speech, the MP said: "These poor Iraqis - ragged people, with their sandals, with their Kalashnikovs, with the lightest and most basic of weapons - are writing the names of their cities and towns in the stars, with 145 military operations every day, which has made the country ungovernable.

"We don't know who they are, we don't know their names, we never saw their faces, they don't put up photographs of their martyrs, we don't know the names of their leaders."

Granted, the suicide bombers are committed and desperate, and could be termed "martyrs" in the literal sense of being willing to die for their beliefs but ...

He told Syrian Television: "Two of your beautiful daughters are in the hands of foreigners - Jerusalem and Baghdad.

"The foreigners are doing to your daughters as they will.

"The daughters are crying for help and the Arab world is silent. And some of them are collaborating with the rape of these two beautiful Arab daughters."

Mr Galloway said Tony Blair's idea of a "war on terrorism" was absurd as terrorism was a tactic, not a strategy...

...that's the same tactic Tee Hee Lawrence used to take the Turks out of the oil-rich three countries England cut into the one Iraq ... the same tactic Menachim Begin and the Irgun used to run the Brits out of Palestine and take Jerusalem... the same tactic the Viet Cong and the Viet Minh used to run the French out of Vietnam -- twice -- and then to run the Americans out, a bit later.

It's called killing killing killing, maiming, mutilating, terrifying, and ok, you can look at someone willing to strap on a C-4 vest and blow himself up along with a bunch of people eating pizza or applying for a job, and you can say, "Wow! That's one desperate guy." Even "Wow, that's one committed guy."

But while the CAUSE of repelling the invaders (JIHAD) may be a noble one, the tactic of random mass slaughter is just monstrous crap that only makes things worse. It may succeed, but the cost catches up down the line -- there's a difference between dying for a cause and murdering for one, and anyone with a name like Galloway should know that.
