H. RES. 944Yes, we are SO concerned about Iraqi's that so far, we killed around 1.3 million Iraqi's, wounded several million more, used our 'smart' bombs to destroy their homes, factories, water and sewerage treatment plants, mosques, hospitals, schools and blown the hell out of Iraqi antiquities, permanently erasing evidence of one of civilization's oldest people.
Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives on religious minorities in Iraq.
Whereas threats against the smallest religious minorities in Iraq jeopardize the future of Iraq as a diverse, pluralistic, and free society;
Whereas governments in the region report that approximately 2,400,000 refugees and asylum seekers have fled Iraq since 2003;
Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that--
(1) the United States remains deeply concerned about the plight of vulnerable religious and ethnic minorities of Iraq .
This POS legislation is just another thinly veiled attempt to extend the US military occupation of Iraq indefinitely.
Combine this with those vehicle bombs, being set off in Iraqi markets, schools and mosques by British, American and Israeli mercs and the war mongers in the Pentagon and WH will get their wish; a permanent occupation of Iraq.
Which is what two of the US Knesset members, Berman and Ros-Lehtinen, both representing Tel Aviv and cheering enthusiastically for this travesty, want.
Where was the US House, back in December 2008, when US supplied weapons being used by the Israelis were blowing the hell out of Gaza religious minorities?
Where was the US House, back in the Summer of 2006, when US supplied weapons being used by the Israelis were blowing the hell out of Lebanese religious minorities?
They were cheering on the Zionist slaughter of those religious minorities.
Rep. Howard "Even before I was a Democrat, I was a Zionist" Berman voted in support of the invasion of Iraq in both 1991 and 2003
