the day in the life of a troll 06.Mar.2003 19:56

When a troll uses a headline that is so obviously deceptive, does that suggest the person is dumb-as-a-door-nail freeper or a gov hack pretending to be dumb?

In any event, the Kurds are incredibly cynical about this whole enterprise. Some have marginal agreement with the idea of war, but most actually think their conditions are going to get much worse once the war is over. Why? Well, the Kurds in northern Iraq have been doing reasonably well in the last decade (relative to 1988, when they were gassed and attacked). They have had some degree of autonomy. But once the war is over, Turkey is going to be meddling with the Northern part of Iraq and the Kurds will be abandoned by the U.S.

Just read and listen to Kani Xulam, a Kurd from northern Kurdistan and director of the American Kurdish Information Network:

And as for you, my dear troll, here's an unsolicited tip: If you're going to try to spin propaganda, remember that you need to be a little more sophisticated, lest you betray yourself to all.
