Comments

Why are we not surprised to find Herta Däubler-Gmelin once again making a holier-than-thou statement? As the above link (read the whole thing) points out, if Herta Däubler-Gmelin had had her way, Saddam would still be in power. Jail for Dubya, but not for Saddam. Did Herta ever condemn the human rights record of Saddam, whom she wanted maintained in power?
What else can we expect from the woman who compared Dubya to Hitler?

There is a stench emanating from her statements.

"But Ms. Däubler-Gmelin evidently did not think for a second of the liberation of Iraq from this dictatorship. And after 2003, it was people like her – and so many others in Europe – that showed no concern for the changes and developments underway in Iraq."

Rape rooms? Detractors being fed feet first through plastic shredders? Purges? Genocide? Tut-tut-- pure Mc-Hitler-Bush propaganda.

Been to Iraq the first time around in 1991.. I do like the kurds. So do my other brothers, but hey... its all about Europe-peons raising fists against shadow enemies while ignoring the elephant in the room.

Wow, Däubler-Gmelin is alive and kicking. I assumed she would leave public life voluntarily, or at least she would be a persona non grata, but I see she's still a prominent figure. At the same time I don't think anyone in Germany (with very few exceptions) will ever read the Kurd's letter.

Which says something about the country that elected her, unfortunately.

Which says something about the country that elected her

Very true.

If she had said something similar about...uhmmmm...Arafat (I know he's choking on the 72 raisins now) or Hamas, or Mugabe, she would have been marked for life. Her insensitivity would have made her unable to be in any public position. However, when she insults the American President she gets an endearing spank on the tush and is moved to another office.

Frau Däubler-Gmelin wants to distract attention from her domestic problems. This is a popular method. Saddam also used it.

German In Name Only:

That fits Däubler-Gmelin to a T. The daughter of an attorney and Standartenführer who was jailed for three years after the war (he was deputy to a man who was executed): does it not seem interesting that someone with such a father would a half century later call for the jailing of the American President? Her attorney father signed off on making railroad cars available for taking Jews to the camps, and she is calling the American justice system "lousy"? Interesting. IMHO, in an attempt to expiate guilt over the war, she attacked Dubya. See: Dubya is just as bad as Adolf- six months before Dubya even invaded Iraq. My father was jailed? So should Dubya be jailed! Of course the Ami justice system is lousy. It jailed my father!

Had her father been a baker or a corporal during the war, she would have never made such remarks. The recent attack on the Kurds and the older one on Dubya reflect her unresolved conflicts with what her father did during the war, and his imprisonment after. Perhaps she attacks Dubya and the Kurds because she feels that others consider her responsible for what occurred when she is an infant, which is patently unfair.

Harridan Herta: we don't consider you responsible for what occurred when you were an infant. Please stop attacking us as if we do.
