America's Iraq is Torturing and Killing Gays

Good Morning Papamoka Bloggers! I don't have anything polite to add to a story I read this morning on The Raw Story about how gays are being tortured and killed in Iraq by both religious terrorists and the government. It even describes how the torturers are coming up with new, creative ways to kill their poor victims.

I feel horrible for those poor people. Most important, as an American, it makes me extremely angry that we are over there risking our soldier's lives, spending billions each month to protect those horrible people, and standing by and doing NOTHING!

The reports suggest there's a witch hunt in progress, with gays being rounded-up, tortured and killed. Reports say that some are killed by having their anuses glued shut, causing a painful, grotesque death. I don't know what to say about that, except that my heart breaks to think we freed those horrible people allowing them to do their nightmarish deeds.

More Americans should know about this nightmare, because we are partly responsible. Please join me and tell our representatives how angry we are that innocent people are being persecuted by a regime we protect and support. We need to stop them or GET THE HELL OUT! Think about it, if we do nothing, than we are no better. We're simply the guards protecting the lynch mobs murdering innocent people. It's wrong! We shouldn't allow it to happen!

It appears our young men and women died to replace a brutal, inhumane regime with brutal, inhumane, intolerant people. They seem the same to me. It all seems like such a waste of lives, money and effort.

PS - If you decide to take action, here are a few links that may help you. Email President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton, and/or your national elected officials. If you wish to call, simply call the Whitehouse at 202-456-1414, or the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121. I also suggest you contact your local newspaper. Please let them all know how angry we are to see our leaders and military standing idly by while lynch mobs persecute and murder innocent gay people in Iraq.

Thank you, Michael, for providing your readers with all the contact information necessary to DO SOMETHING. My U.S. senators and representative have gotten so many snail-mail letters from me through the last eight years, they know me. All three are Republicans who never agree with me, but they know how I stand on the issues, and they know I vote against them!

Just reading about “man’s inhumanity to man” is torture in itself.

I have a relative who is gay and has linked your posts on his blog. I will tell him about this post, too.

Thanks BJ - I wish more people would care about these modern day lynchings. For God's sake, they are going on while we defend the lynch mobs. It's outrageous! Thanks for caring - Michael

Michael,

I am 100% in your corner on this issue bro. I just want to clearly say that you don't have to be gay or lesbian for this to piss you off. This should piss off and make every American spitting mad. Damn!

In a counter point, even though I back your anger over this, does this not warrant our keeping our troops there to stop this insanity? This is a catch 22 issue for people on the left I think but I'm an idiot and proudly admit that fact.

I would like to think PapaM, but the soldiers aren't stopping any of it. We're treating it like it doesn't exist, just like we did in our own past. I don't know about you guys, but I feel horrible. Please call somebody - MB
