Zapatero: Fight Terror with Feminism
Spain’s socialist prime minister Zapatero told TIME Magazine recently, “I Don’t Want To Be A Great Leader.”
With fatuous, idiotic views like his, there’s very little danger that he will.
YOU’RE SAID TO HATE MACHISMO. WHY?
I’m not just antimachismo, I’m a feminist. One thing that really awakens my rebellious streak is 20 centuries of one sex dominating the other. We talk of slavery, feudalism, exploitation, but the most unjust domination is that of one half of the human race over the other half. The more equality women have, the fairer, more civilized and tolerant society will be. Sexual equality is a lot more effective against terrorism than military strength.
Zapatero also urges the other Iraq War coalition to follow his lead and appease the head-chopping mujahideen:
YOU’VE CALLED ON ALL COALITION GOVERNMENTS TO WITHDRAW THEIR FORCES FROM IRAQ, AS SPAIN DID IN APRIL. DOES THAT MEAN YOU’RE WILLING TO ACCEPT A FUNDAMENTALIST SHI’ITE REGIME THERE OR ETHNIC CIVIL WAR?
The one question we have to ask is this: Are things any better in Iraq after one-and-a-half years of occupation? The answer is, no. There’s a spiral of violence and death. We have two options: close our eyes or face that reality. Now Iraq needs to recover its freedom, stability and sovereignty as soon as possible.
He must be referring to the freedom to vote for Saddam Hussein or to be freely fed feet-first into an industrial plastic shredder.
