Thanks bg's for the link. This is what I emailed to [email protected]
"…Most Iraqi households own at least one gun…"
OK, I'll bite. What guns are allowed by the dictator?
The only specific firearm type mentioned was: "12 gauge pump-action shotgun". In the picture of the guns on the wall, all of the guns were shotguns. Shotguns are generally not considered a threat, as gun-banners in England, Canada, and the United States generally consider them "OK for hunting".
In answer to your question,
If there are so many guns in Iraq, why is it still a dictatorship?
First of all, they've only got bird guns. Translated: Iraqi's don't have the freedom to own firearms.
They also don't have freedom of speech, as required in our Bill of Rights. If any Iraqi citizen speaks out against dictator Saddam, the punishment is cruel and unusual. Cruel and unusual punishment is also prohibited by our Bill Of Rights.
They don't have freedom of religion! They are Muslim or else they suffer economically and socially. Talk about intolerance! Religion is also protected in our Bill Of Rights, in spite of the ACLU lawyers.
The freedom to own firearms is only ONE Civil Right necessary to protect America. Take away ANY of the Bill Of Rights, and all are forfeited.
About Red Dawn, that was just a movie. It was not real. The renegade kids would've been tracked down and taken out. If the Ruskies could paratroop in, en masse, as portrayed in the movie, the USA would've lost all military capability. That's a fantasy for Russia's and China's leaders; that's not the real world.
Poor Iraqi citizens, they don't have even one of the rights of a human being. It's truly a tragedy of history that one person like Saddam Hussein can cause so much pain and suffering. It is truly a tragedy of history that one person like Saddam Hussein can cause so much pain and suffering to the level of a holocaust.
God Bless America and God Bless George Bush
