Saddam Hires Moonbat US Lawyer
One of Saddam Hussein’s lawyers is a highly pedigreed barking moonbat, a certain Dr. Curtis Francis Doebbler. Here’s one of the good doctor’s pieces on the “war crimes” of Israel, in which he writes that even if Palestinian terrorists use ambulances as cover, Israel may never fight back against those ambulances: Israel and the Palestinians: What Laws Were Broken? (Hat tip: cynthiajane.)
Regarding your question about the targeting and impeding of ambulances, the protections to hospitals and medical personnel and women and children all apply to occupied territories. You cannot attack ambulances under any circumstances. It doesn’t make a difference if ambulances have been harboring terrorists or militants. If someone is using an ambulance as cover to commit acts of war, they would be violating international humanitarian law. You might be able to eventually punish them for this, but you still cannot attack them.
And in case you had any confusion about where Doctor Giggles stands on the important issues of our day, here’s his Statement of Political Views.
I am a pacifist in so far as I will not use force to achieve political ends and in principle I reject the use of force by both governmental and non-governmental actors. At the same time, I can understand the frustrations of those individuals who turn to the use of force when they or others with whom they identify are being oppressed and have no adequate means of legal recourse.
I strongly support the Social Justice Movement, which I view as the conglomeration of anti-globalists, human rights defenders, and anarchists who are striving for social change towards a world of greater equality. In this sense, I believe in a world of greater equality where no person or company can acquire such a disparity in wealth that others have less than the minimum that enables them to live meaningful lives. To this end I support actions to ensure the redistribution of wealth through governmental intervention as long as these efforts are not based on political biases and reflect the will of the majority of the people in any given country. And I support the intervention of the state to ensure education, health care, social welfare, a minimum income, and the protection of all fundamental human rights.
I ardently oppose American and more broadly western neo-imperialism which is being imposed through the exploitation of the majority of the people of the world and the economic and military dominance of the United States. I believe that all people have a right and a duty to take all necessary measures to end the United States’ inhumane dominance of the lives of billions of people.
Note how he supports “anti-globalists” and “anarchists,” while at the same time advocating a fascist “nanny government” that would intervene in almost every aspect of life. The loony left’s objective pro-fascism has rarely been so clearly displayed.
But whatever you do, don’t question his patriotism.
