No sympathy

First published in Letters

HAS THE world gone completely mad? So the editor of the South Wales Argus is rather upset that the place name Newport does not appear on the NATO Summit logo because it will restrict and hinder the marketisation of the city and hinder the accumulation of profit by the business community!

Does the editor or anyone else who has complained have any idea as to what NATO is all about?

Ask the people of Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, (etc). Does operation “shock and awe” ring any bells? Does the use of depleted uranium armaments or the imposed sanctions on Iraq which killed ½ million children? (Which Madelaine Albright thought was worth it!).

Please read some Noam Chomsky on the US policy of full spectrum dominance and please stop making idiotic comments. But you won’t because you put making a quick buck before an iota of empathy or compassion! Your morality is money based on ignorance and stupidity!

Ooh Noam Chomsky? He's Jewish, isn't he? According to some people on these threads that despite being an American who is critical of Israel this purely coincidental fact makes him guilty of anything that the Israeli government might do or not do irrespective of if he happens to be Israeli or not - even if, for instance, he happend to be a Chinese Jew or even an Iranian one. Now can anyone see just how far the neo-Nazis have travelled by jumping on the left's bandwaggon?

Yawn yawn same old Banfield. The number of column inches that this man must have filled up with the same old story year after year beggars belief. He also needs to realise that most of us have better things to do than read works from his suggested authors. As for morality his is governed by having a chip on both shoulders, never seeing the good in anything or anybody and constant whingeing. I have never been able to work out why he does not move to a country which better reflects his views, North Korea comes to mind , ah no because they wouldn't publish his drivel!!

Oh so true. Conspiracy theory on top of persecution complex. Utterly tedious tripe.

As we all know, some of world's leaders aren't too good at geography (remember George W Bush's gaff when meeting Charlotte Church!). I think it might have more to do with making sure that delegates don't end up in the wrong 'Newport'. Isle of Wight is nice this time of year.
