Passive Saboteurs
Ideological prejudice leads relief agencies to cut and run from Iraq.
BY MARTIN PERETZ
Sunday, September 14, 2003 12:01 a.m. EDT

The world is now witnessing an exodus from Iraq. But it is not an exodus of refugees, whom critics of the war told us would flood in panic across the borders into neighboring states. These simply didn't materialize--and it tells us much that is good about the postwar realities of the country that they didn't.

So who exactly is abandoning Iraq and its still considerable deficiencies in sanitation, clean drinking water, medicine, medical care and an equitable distribution of food? The answer is astonishing because the deserters are many of those nongovernmental organizations and other groupings organized by governments whose precise moral singularity is that they arrive and stay to dispel human distress when no one else will.

The same things are happening in Afghanistan as well. The terrorists are targeting aid workers purposefully. The reason they do this is simple. They will become obsolete to the people once they are given a better life. This is why the UN was attacked in Iraq as well. Poverty does not create terrorism, but it does give terrorists leverage over the people, when they are the only ones that can 'provide' for them. Their absolute lack of caring for their own people, illustrates their evil, hypocrasy, and why the must be destroyed.

Who will become "obsolete to the people"? Aid workers or terrorists or both?

Sorry the terrorists will become obsolete. They don't want the people to see how good life can be without them.
