Now Winnie Wants To Be Human Shield In Iraq

Now Winnie wants to be a human shield in Iraq

February 19 2003 at 05:21AM

African National Congress MP Winnie Madikizela-Mandela wants to travel to Iraq as a human shield, and wants other women to join her.

This is according to a statement on Monday, in which the ANC Women's League president criticised the Democratic Alliance for its comments on the state-of-the-nation address during a debate in parliament.

"The DA, and elements within the ANC, will however be delighted to know that she is seriously considering a suggestion that she travel to Iraq as a human shield against American attacks," the statement from Madikizela- Mandela's office said.

Asked to elaborate, an aide told reporters that the initiative was Madikizela-Mandela's own.

"She wants to involve women from across all parties and interested groups, on a mother-to-mother basis.

"Mrs Madikizela-Mandela believes we have the experience of having seen our children needlessly killed."

About her frequent absenteeism from parliament, she said it was very difficult to "share the chamber with politicians from the apartheid era who have the blood of black children on their hands". - Sapa

Isn't Winnie the one who killed the black teenage boys?

What an evil stupid bitch.

Winnie, would you mind bringing along your ex-husband Nelson? you dont have to actually talk to him or spend time with him.. you could just stand at opposite ends of the human shield cordon around the bioweapons factory.. er, I mean the baby milk factory.

And be sure to wear your "Bullseye" Human Shield T-Shirts.

Happy trails, you ignorant slut.

I'm a little disappointed. I was hoping we'd see a lot more of these "celebrities" all migrating to Iraq. All the wonderful Hollywood types (Sean Penn, Mike Farrell, etal.) that have been ranting against military action are sure dropping the ball. Perhaps they really aren't terribly concerned about the innocent civilians afterall? Hmmmm....

This is actually a clever way to keep pilots extra alert without the use of 'uppers'. Just think of the unseeming haste amongst all pilots in the neighborhood when this child abuser (opps, make that child murderer)is spotted below.

Now that will be a case of air traffic congestion!

I dont know if I would want to send Whinnie Mandela over there....she might kill some innocent Iraqi kids.

If she does go...I agree....she should take her Ebony Hitler ex-husband with her

Maybe she could wear one of her trademark "flamming neckties" to better illuminate herself as a target.

This is the first legitimate reason that I heard of to hold off on an attack. It will take some time for her to get to Bagdad. Then we can start the bombing.

Take Nelson too!
And your buddy, the "presiding bishop" of the Episcopal Church in the U.S., Frank Griswold.
Take Hillary! too, if you would, and how about that professor of "journalism" at UT-Austin, Robert Jensen?

Stay as long as you like! Find a nice hotel in Bagdad near Saddam Hussein's "palace" if you want.

It is getting more and more amazing the list of people who want to die so Saddam can continue to produce WMD. He must not be stopped!

"It is getting more and more amazing the list of people who want to die ..."

People like Winnie don't really believe they will die. Their kind of arrogance just somehow believes that laws of physics - if your body intersects the trajectory of a speeding bullet, your body will be pierced or at least plugged - will be bent if not suspended because their existence is just too important to the world.

Is someone setting up a fund that could help defray their travel expenses -- they should arrive in Baghdad as soon as possible?

I wouldn't want them to miss the start of the war.

Put the used tire around her neck and full it with gas. We will be able to see the fire when we hit the target. She will then know how it feels when her enemies were necktied in South Africa.
