Human Shields (What are they thinking?)

post #1 of 450

<a href="http://www.msnbc.com/news/878871.asp?0na=x2347381-" target="_blank">http://www.msnbc.com/news/878871.asp?0na=x2347381-</a>

It seems that a lot of antiwar activists have purposely moved into Baghdad in the hopes of preventing collateral damage to civilians. They have attached themselves to power plants, factories, water purification plants, etc...

As one stated:

Quote:
I want the world to know theres no such thing as collateral damage, said OKeefe after activists had set down their backpacks and bedrolls on metal beds laid out dormitory style in a plush conference room featuring at least a dozen likenesses of Saddam Hussein. If anyone here dies due to bombing, its murder.

Is this guy out of his mind? If anyone dies there it is not murder, it is suicide! Power plants, factories and such are legitimate targets in military exercises as you need to remove from your enemy any advantage so that they will surrender faster.

I think this last quote shows that many have realized their mistake all to late:

Quote:
Some of the shields seemed to be just now waking up to the complex issuesand the risksswirling about them. Im trying to meet with [U.N. weapons inspectors] to make sure the sites were stationed at arent close to legitimate military targets, says one Western peacenik on condition of anonymity. Both the Baghdad South power plant and the Daurra refinery are close to military sites or VIP palaces, and a handful of shields were beginning to worry theyd be forced to stay in places where they didnt want to be, he said. Theres a rumor going around that when we want to leave Iraq, some might not be allowed to. At least for now, Iraqi authorities show no sign of adopting such tactics. More likely, theyll reap the propaganda windfall that the human shields representthen send them home if theyre no longer useful.

Sad. I realize that they are trying to fight the war and prevent it from happening. But if they die when this all goes down their blood will be on their own heads. I will not feel guilty for them, only sadness. It is called personal responsibility, and hopefully they realized the danger they were putting themselves in before they signed up. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[oyvey]" />

On this issue I agree with the pro-war crowd.

In Iraq you have absolutly no control on how you are being used. How do you know that the powerplant you are put in front haven´t got a shelter for the elite in its basement? The critisism against the demonstrators of being useful idiots only applies to these human shields.

They will have a rude awakening when the Iraqis prove to be not as nice as they assumed and as soon as the firing starts they will either be shot or forced into territory where they are certain to be killed, once they are killed then it will be used as press fodder for Hussains PR attempts . . .

Its so obviouse only a total Eugene Oregon style ultra-lefty wouldn't see it

Human shields, what a waste of time, life and effort. The US government is even thinking about classifying them as "enemy combatants", and if they even make it home, they could get up to 20 years in jail and a $500,000 fine. What a dumb, stupid way of protesting a war. If it comes to that, those bombs are going to fall, human shields or not. The military, no matter what side they are on don't give a flying fvck if some 'human shield" civilians are hanging out on the ground somewhere below.

Forget good intentions here...the notion of human shields is totally stupid and unproductive.

As an afterthought...the only way a "human shield" could work, is en masse, like one of the huge demonstrations of Feb 15... say, a half million people or more going to Iraq. Even then, I am not too sure if it would make much difference, knowing the recklessness, singlemindedness and fear of losing face of both Saddam and Bush....

You know what's funny is that the first set of "human shields" from the first war were in fact prisoners that Iraq held illegally and put in harms way against their will. This is the type of government these "anti-war" protesters want to protect.

The last figure I heard was approx. 300 human shields in Iraq. It is unknown how many people are in the anti-war movement. An unknown percentage of them (some 15 million people) hit the streets on Feb 15th. But 300 out of 15 million = 0.002%, kinda insignificant.

See that would be a great idea. But when they got to Iraq instead of saying "Show us where to sit" to the nearest Iraqi officer they should start hand out pamflets against Saddam, go to the palaces and sites that are assumed having WoMD and sniff around. And always in groups of 100.000. Lets see how Saddam would react to that behaviour among his guests. I don´t think it takes more than 1/2 mill. to start a revolution. And US wouldn´t dare attack as long as 1/2 mill. western people were in Baghdad doing anti-saddam propaganda.

It would be even better if it was iraqis who did this and the only thing against it would be the huge loss of lifes that it would result in.

Agreed.

Acting as a human shield for military and/or non-humanitarian sites is a war crime. Not because I say so, or because I think it's stupid -- it's an actual war crime under international law.

There's some talk of the Dali Lama & the Pope getting together to make a human shield. I guess they were/are seriously thinking about it. If the Pope were there, the idea of a human sheild starts the become clearer. I doubt Bush would be willing to murder the Pope.

Hell, if the 15,000,000 protesters all made their way to Iraq the human shield would work as well.

As for personal responsibility, why is there none for the military? I mean, when we bomb a wedding party in Afghanistan, it's just 'oops'? If we 'accidentally' bomb an illegitimate target and kill some protesters, what responsibility does the military share in your mind? None?

Good idea. Problem is is that would be a real anti-war movement and the "anti-war" movement isn't about stopping war but about bashing the US.

Yes, someone did state that it would be suicide not murder. But does that make it true? No. I can state that it's a grapefruit, but that doesn't make it true either.

In a war, not all targets are legitimate. Sorry. You can't just flatten the entire country simple because that's the only way to be sure you've killed all the 'evil doers.' You actually have to be discerning. They actually have international lawyers in the military planning rooms to sort out what is or isn't a legitimate target. You can't just destroy everything.

And how am I protecting Saddam and his regime? I don't think I mentioned them at all.

We shold probably point out that these people aren't sitting at military installations, but at places like schools and mosques. These aren't typical military targets anyway. However, in the war in Afghanistan, the Taliban tried to hide weapons and troops in these places because they knew that bombing it would be great PR for them, claiming it had families inside instead. So I think the military forces will keep an eye on those types of places to see who is actually moving into them.

I wonder what the human shields would do if Iraq tried to stuff a few tanks and troops into their mosque with them?

Also, I wonder how safe they could possibly be if urban warfare breaks out in Baghdad. What are the chances Iraqi troops will use them as their own personal human shields, like what happened with kids and civilians in Mogadishu?

as for the anti-war movement in other countries? i really don't know them, but i assume some of them have various reasons...some even are anti-us, but i am equally sure not all are...

human shields...stupid idea, more lives lost is bad...if the idiots are there, hopefully they stay at hospitals and schools...they are still likely to get killed, but hopefully less so since our bombs are so smart now adays....g

Bunge, I'm not a rabid war-mongering zealot who gets his jollies by the prospect of smiting my enemies but if someone chooses to go to Iraq and then chooses to stand around some military or civilian sites why would believe that some military planner would know that they are are there, or even care.
If they believe that this action would prevent war they would be actually shielding Saddam and his regime, there is not going to be carpet bombing of civilians, or flattening an entire country. P.S I have a close relative out there who has been frantically preparing for Saddams NBC ( no, not the network) actions so they really are convinced he has some serious shit hidden and ready to go. Peace brother.

Anders:

Revolution in Iraq would be the bloodiest of all scenarios without a doubt. If we care about Iraqi civilians as a world, and we don't, we wouldn't have treated them the way we have for the last 12 years.

If the forthcoming war kills over 500,000 of them like the sanctions did up to 1996 alone (I don't even know what the toll has been with 7 more years) I'll gladly eat my words, but until then, and as crazy as it sounds, I think the most humane thing to do is undertake a war with a clear goal of minimizing civilian casualties to oust Saddam Hussein and his regime and get the sanctions against the people (because that's who they are against) lifted.

Those folks are easy to spot -- they're the ones marching with big signs. They're all out there because they love America so much. It's just the folks who are organizing the marches (such as the World Workers' Party) that hate America. Let's keep that clear.

Big difference. Organizers/sponsors/media -- trying to undermine America. Ordinary folks -- not trying to undermine America by marching in protest. Ordinary folks DON'T MEAN TO (this is important) support Saddam Hussein, they just don't want war. Or Bush, or SUVs, or whatever CNN tells them to not want.

The people who say that the protestors "hate America" or are "pro-Saddam" are off-base. The vast majority of these protesters are merely anti-Bush. They griped a bit when Clinton dropped bombs on Iraqis, but they'll come out 1 million strong when a Republican threatens to do it.

This is all political.

I wish I could switch over to the doe-eyed Left and write that kind of stuff. That sounds so much more fun than just continuing to point out how much DRIVEL it is.

Sniff. You're right, they're a NIGHTMARE. Turn back to CNN and the networks, they'll confirm your suspicions and help you formulate a new gestalt when (or if) that one wears thin.

I hate to seem so negative, but I'm surprised at how f*cking gullible people are. And how intellectually lazy they are as well.

Some decade ago I was in Israel, and there was then one actual occurence of a person acting as a human shield, which made the news at the time.
I don't remember all the exact details. A Palestinian man suddenly started stabbing people in a Jerusalem shopping mall (it was before they discovered what fun it is to blow oneslef up with a crowd of sinners), soon the crowd started to run after him, probably to dispense some form of primitive vengeance. That's when a religious lady, one Mrs. Freund I think, shileded him against the angry mob and thus saved his life. And she was not a peace activist or any kind of political demonstrator, and certainly held no favourable view of the criminal stabber (who was certainly not innocent but not deserving a lynching), she was just a common Israeli civilian with common humane decency.
Now, when these antiwar activists get to Iraq, they are likely to witness the violent death of Iraqi civilians, at the hand the various armed corps of the regime. How many of them will risk their lives to shield them?
That remains to be seen, yet the fact that not one of those idealists took the initiative to humanly shield Iraqi civilians from Saddam's regime all these years, hints at the more likely outcome.

In conclusion, you'll find much self-righteous moralist preaching among those activists, but you'll have to look harder there for that rather common humane decency.

Now you're getting to the point: the military planners DON'T care. That's why the human shields are there. The human shields know that the military planners will kill civilians and by being a human shield they can bring this problem into the open. The fact that it's being discussed here is proof that their message is getting out. Good for them.

Besides, I would think that those pushing for war (death/killing/slaughter/explosions) would be proud of someone willing to die for their cause. Seems warped to me that you all will criticize them.
