Iraqi Baathist and jihadist "resistance".
He is pro-Saddam and pro-jihad.
- Iraqi Resisters are Patriots, Ted Rall, Aug 2003,
openly supports the Iraqi Baathist and jihadist "resistance".
"Guerilla warfare offered the only way for Iraq’s tiny, poorly armed military to resist the US.
In Iraq, we are the bad guys.
What about the “terrorists” who bombed the UN headquarters and Jordanian Embassy in Baghdad, who sabotage oil and water pipe lines, who use rifles and rocket-propelled grenades and remote-controlled mines to kill our soldiers? Aren’t these “killers” evil, “killing people who just want to help,” as another AP writer puts it?
In short: no.
honest Americans should call native Iraqi resistance fighters by a more fitting name: Iraqi patriots.
Iraq’s natural resources are being raped. Its people are being murdered. Yet it’s the patriotic Iraqi resistance, which is trying to stop these outrages by throwing out the perpetrators of an illegal war of aggression, that the Bush administration dares call “terrorists.”
On July 5 a bomb killed seven recruits for a U.S.-trained Iraqi police force in Ramadi.
.. Cops who work for a foreign army of occupation are not innocent.
They are collaborators. Traitors. They had it coming."
- Why We Fight,
Ted Rall, Nov 2003,
is an imagined pep talk to the Iraqi "resistance".
But his real opinions are clear throughout.
He is running a defence for
the killing not just of American troops but also of brave Iraqi democrats.
Thank you for joining the Iraqi resistance forces.
You are joining a broad and diverse coalition dedicated to one principle: Iraq for Iraqis. Our leaders include generals of President Saddam Hussein’s secular government as well as fundamentalist Islamists. We are Sunni and Shia, Iraqi and foreign, Arab and Kurdish. Though we differ on what kind of future our country should have after liberation and many of us suffered under Saddam, we are fighting side by side because there is no dignity under the brutal and oppressive jackboot of the U.S. Coalition Provisional Authority
It is no easy thing to shoot or blow up young men and women because they wear American uniforms.
Unfortunately, we can't help these innocent U.S. soldiers. They are victims, like ourselves, of the bandits in Washington.
We regret their deaths, but we must continue to kill them until the last one has gone home to America.
... In this vein we must also take action against our own Iraqi citizens who choose to collaborate with the enemy. Bush wants to put an "Iraqi face" on the occupation. If we allow the Americans to corrupt our friends and neighbors by turning them into puppet policemen and sellouts, our independence will be lost forever. If someone you know is considering taking a job with the Americans, tell him that he is engaging in treason and encourage him to seek honest work instead. If he refuses, you must kill him as a warning to other weak-minded individuals.
... To victory!"

Jihad-lover Ted Rall
attacks anyone who fights the jihad,
Pat Tillman (April 2004).
It makes sense that a jihad-lover would hate those who fight the jihad.
The fascist vermin
of the Taliban are the "resistance" to Ted Rall!
He does not know the first thing about them.
