Let's Fight Hate Mongering War Propaganda Videos
The video of the Yazdi Kurdish girl being stoned is in the top 3 emailed videos today on CNN.

Let's fight this hate mongering propaganda that supports the Occupation of Iraq by countering it with the case that Ron Paul makes for WHY 9/11 happened.

I hope you'll go to CNN and select the Politics video "Fight with a front-runner" (which is Wolf Blitzer's interview with Ron Paul about Paul's clash with Guliani over what caused 9/11) and email it to as many people as you can.

Thanks.

2. It happened at least a week ago.
Also note the quality of the video is VERY poor. You can barely see anything at all. So what is this piece of shit for?

3. It's to let us know
that a woman has been stoned for falling in love with a boy from another religion- in the 21st century. It's just information, dogg. You're afraid that it will be used for political purposes. But does that mean that every act of savagery in the Middle East should be kept from us?

4. I'm not suggesting that "we" shouldn't know.
But of all of the things we need to know about the MidEast, why does this place in the top 3 most emailed CNN videos today.

5. Because
it's a video of an innocent woman being stoned for no reason. It's kind of a big deal.

6. I just don't see it as being that much different from what happened

to a bunch of innocent people during Shock and Awe.

If people are shocked by stoning, they should be horrified by invasion. I'm sure many people ARE horrified by what we did, but I'll bet they aren't the ones mailing that stoning video around, because it's not news to us.

7. War is war.
Evils during wartime are understood in that context. It may not be right, but it doesn't have the same effect on people as a single, pointless, barbaric murder caught on tape.
