Skip to comments.The Peace rallies, human shields and such - my freepin thoughts

Well I have about had it. Just read another article, this one about 30,000 people sending letters to Blair on the Iraq situation. We have people wanting to be human shields, protests around the world against Bush, War in Iraq, Blair, America, etc.
How many protests, letters, and such have we had by people against Saddam and his policies? Where are these people when Saddam is murdering his neighbors, torturing people, etc? Where are the protests by women's groups at iraqi Embasssies? Why all of the sudden do people rush into action against the US and it's allies when they sat quietly for years living it up with Clinton and friends? I guess human rights are only fought for and in the news when it is convenient - and even then only if they can get some political gain from it.
So write to me here, tell me why you let saddam murder, torture, rape, do whatever he wants and you don't even give it the time of day - tell me why your not out using your peaceful means to get him to cave into your pressure. You want the UN to do it all? Fine, that still does not mean you should not be out protesting against him.
You want a peaceful solution? You believe using your peaceful protests and such will change whether or not we go to war, who knows it might - such things have led to change in the past. But how about you use that same pressure on Saddam to get him to change? Rallies around the world, ending letters, offering to be human shields for the kurds.
War is ugly, it sucks and people die. Your yelling that to the US, try yelling that at Saddam. We know it all to well. As Al Gore Said - Saddam Must Go.
And for those who think it is all about oil and Bush and such, see my links below.
