civil administrator of Iraq Paul Bremer was confronted by the legacy of the human catastrophe he had helped facilitate during his tenure in that country. destroyed my country" threw both his shoes at a seemingly stunned Bremer before being removed from the event. In the commotion afterward he can be heard to yell "You f***** up my country, you destroyed thecountry. F*** you and f*** your democracy." After regaining his composure and suggesting that the Iraqi man "improve his aim isabel marant sneakers if he wants to do things like that," Bremer addressed the quieted crowd by saying, "If he had nike air max 1 done that while Saddam Hussain had been alive he isabel marant boots would be a dead man right now." Upon hearing Bremer's words of proud reassurance, the gathering of neoconservative think-tank intellectuals burst into applause a moment emblematic of the arrogance that legal impunity has generated for the architects of one of the worst humanitarian disasters of the 21st century. For Bremer who often refers critics to Iraqi people when questioned over the country monumental cost in human suffering during his civil administration to be confronted by one of those very same Iraqis and still maintain his hubristic defiance is indicative of his moral bankruptcy and that of the neoconservative movement for which jordan for sale he remains an esteemed representative.
In a legitimately meritocratic society governed by the rule of law, it jordan heels would be reasonable to expect that after presiding over an unmitigated strategic and humanitarian calamity such as the Iraq War neoconservatives such as Bremer would face legal charges or at least devastating career repercussions that would exclude them from taking part in public discourse but regrettably . While it is true that former Bush administration figures such as Donald Rumsfeld, John Yoo and Dick Cheney have been subject to criminal charges in countries around the world from Germany to Malaysia, many of those most prominently associated with the neoconservative movement in America are still making an impact pushing the nike air max uk same policies of aggressive military action and disregard for the rule of law that they were a decade ago. Figures such as John Bolton, Elliot Cohen and Bremer's former spokesman, Dan Senor, can still be found in the public sphere peddling the same criminally disastrous political ideology that killed and made refugees out of millions in Iraq while costing the United States trillions of dollars, thousands of soldiers' lives, and much of its moral and political legitimacy in the Middle East. crafts a policy to confront an alleged nuclear program in Iran. In what would seem to be a case of history repeating as farce, the same neoconservative hawks who cynically pushed claims about weapons of mass destruction are publicly singing the exact same tune today about Iran and trying to resurrect the same aggressively militaristic ideology.
Bremer himself, formerly the effective vice-regent of Iraq during its military occupation, is perhaps the most visceral example of a man whose ability to escape legal sanction for his actions has engendered a sense of hubris that could potentially one day again make him as damaging to the United States and the world as he was nearly a decade ago. Upon returning to private life, Bremer would say of the war that he helped facilitate that "Iraq is a better place" and that the consequences of the invasion and occupation were "absolutely worth it." Stating that Iraq was, in his opinion, peaceful, Bremer also made several other disastrously incorrect predictions including that the country would have a stable and sovereign government in place for a handover of power by 2004. While he cynically portrayed a positive picture of development and progress in the country of which he was the effective governor, his spokesman would tell journalists that "off the record, Paris is burning."
Bremer's own worldview gives insight into the callousness with which he viewed his role as well as the civilian population he was administering. presence in the region began to build, he would attribute his own perceived isabel marant wedge sneakers blamelessness in the situation - as the self-described colonial administrator of a militarily occupied country - to the fact that "These people hate the United States not for what we do, but for who we are and what we are." Today, in addition to being a vocal critic of the Obama administration and frequent guest speaker at neoconservative think-tank events, Bremer is an advocate of Samuel Huntington's "Clash of Civilizations" thesis and warns of the need to confront growing Muslim populations in Western countries. Proudly unremorseful for his central role in the biggest American foreign policy disaster of the past generation, Bremer today lives peacefully free from the threat of legal blowback for his actions and has, incongruously enough, become known for producing oil paintings of nudes and landscapes of the New England countryside from his home in Vermont.
From time to time the bubble of self-assurance and hubris that wealthy and powerful individuals manage to build for themselves are burst by those who are the victims of their excesses. The Iraqi man who threw his shoes at Bremer in London, like the millions of other Iraqis who were killed, maimed or forced to leave their homes as refugees - as well as the thousands of American soldiers and their nike air max 1 families who paid the ultimate price due to the war and occupation Bremer helped prosecute - represent the nameless and usually voiceless isabel marant wedge sneakers victims of unchecked official criminality. 'Eden Foods' says of birth control that "these procedures almost always involve immoral unnatural practices."179 comments
