Is it only mad dictators of the non-western world whom use ‘human shields’?


Alright.  Those amongst us whom aren’t self-absorbed ignoramuses know that some dictators, knowing that they are going to be under attack by western imperialists, surround their place of refuge with civilians in the hope that the attack would be thwarted by the alleged ‘humanity’ of the western elite.

So the western-led media keeps banging on about how this or that dictator, from Saddam to Gaddafi, use ‘human shields’ to absolve themselves from the explosive consequence of their actions.  So this ‘human shield’ thing is usually used by the savages outside of the western world right?

Bollocks.

The west use ‘human shields’ all the time.  In fact, they use them every day, 24/7.  More so than any non-western dictator of this medieval age. 

It’s a simple formula actually. 

S/he who goes about pissing off others for their own interests knows full well that if or when those they pissed off retaliate, its probably going to hit their civilians since places of government, or administration, is always located at places where there are high civilian populations.  It doesn’t matter whether it is intentional or not.  All that matters is that they know that civilians being hit is inevitable given that the government is relatively untouchable, or cannot be touched without civilians being grazed significantly. 

the determination of when ‘human shields’ are being used is dependent on the degree to which any state goes about pissing off others for their own interests, whilst taking care to NOT situate their places of government far away from civilians whom can hence be used as a 'human shield' or motive to finish off what they started in foreign climes.And if or when the civilians are hit, it is a win-win situation for these governments as they can cry foul of those who have no respect for ‘innocent civilian’ life and stoke desires for vengeance amongst their own populations to give them the thumbs-up to go into the ‘terror camps’ and states that have WMDs or host ‘terrorists’ to finally finish the job of ridding the world of opponents of the western elite’s claim to global dominance. 

And given the fact that, for instance, the so-called ‘greatest nation on earth’, i.e. the u.s. of a, do their utmost to install governments and states in favour of their global hegemony, and do so despite the lives of the peoples of those climes, and do so far more than any non-western dictator, one can go on to say that these actions immediately cast the civilian population as ‘human shields’. 

In a clamshell, one can hence say that the determination of when ‘human shields’ are being used is dependent on the degree to which any state goes about pissing off others for their own interests, whilst taking care to NOT situate their places of government, or administration, far away from civilians whom can hence be used as a 'human shield' or motive to finish off what they started in foreign climes. Governments do not have to do this intentionally. They just have to be aware of the consequences for it to be intentional.

The Inquisitive venture is a collaborative one. Let's collaborate.

Ad hominem is fine so long as it is accompanied with an argument, as opposed to being confused for an argument. In the latter case, deletion will follow.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this experience....so here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
