IRAQ - Fear or Empathy Card?Submitted by GoldenRule on Wed, 01/23/2008 - 18:55
Our current administration used the "fear card" to justify invading IRAQ, but I believe they currently use the "empathy card" to justify staying. Don't get me wrong...when they need the fear card it's pulled right back out...IRAN, Pakistan, etc.
I often hear pro-war supporters say "but we can just leave the Iraq people...we got them into this mess....etc, etc." What we need to combat this statement is hard core facts of who we really fighting in IRAQ...terrorists or insurgents. We need facts people can relate to. I truly believe these facts will persuade the pro-war supports it is time to come home.
Does anyone have a factual source for who we are really fighting in IRAQ? Any input would be really helpful.
