And here you thought all the terrorists were dead or being hunted down. Apparently some of the few remaining terrorists in Iraq and their international socialist pals are keeping hope alive at a www.uruknet.info. It’s got all the latest on their stirring victories – blowing up civilians, kidnapping diplomats, assassinating civil servants and burning children alive in refugee camps.
Most interestingly it chronicles the deaths of literally scores of US and Coalition soldiers virtually every day – yet if you check other news sources none of those deaths are recorded anywhere. They’re not in any of the major news outlets, not in the papers, not on the TV, not on the newswire, not in the offical body count from the Coalition, not in the independent body count from GlobalSecurity.org – they’re not anywhere.
So, what does making up imaginary casualties and fantasy victories over the Great Satan signify? Is it just wishful thinking, or perhaps a form of magic where talking about casualties will make them happen in real life? Or maybe it’s a last, desperate effort to be taken seriously as history passes the remaining terrorists and their western socialist allies by.
There’s a real echo here of former Saddam’s Information Minister – Baghdad Bob – who kept saying the Republican Guard army was winning as US tanks drove by one block away. Totalitarian regimes and terrorist movements can’t afford to look like they are failing and these human vipers sure can’t acknowledge the substantial and increasing success of Iraq’s new government and the US Middle East policy. An admission of failure would never serve the ends of their international socialist allies who fund their website and give them moral support.
Interestingly, the stories from Uruknet do get picked up – they seem to show up in the more radical islamic press and on socialist websites all over the world, but nowhere else. It’s almost like there are two different realities operating here. There’s one reality which most of the world’s media and NGO observers agree on and there’s an entirely different fantasy world that the terrorists and international radicals are desperately clinging to.
It’s no wonder that it’s so difficult to have sensible conversations with leftists here in the US who’ve become infected by the delusional mindset of their international brothers. They’re so completely drunk on the wine of ideological programming and so out of touch with the real world that when we try to talk to them they must think we’re insane, since none of the real information we try to share with them matches the ‘news’ and ‘facts’ they’re being spoon fed by their masters. They’re true believers and they’ll keep believing until the very end and beyond no matter what, just like the die hard terrorists in Iraq who’ll still be winning when they’re living in a spider hole eating gruel frustrated relatives pour down a tube to them.
