21.03.03: First Statement on the War in Iraq





The destruction of Baghdad
This moment I see, as does everyone who lives and breathes, the biblical destruction of Baghdad.

Amid the flames that engulf the martyr city, I see the image of the USA as a civilized country being annihilated within me.

I see Bush standing shoulder to shoulder with Genghis Khan, Attila and Hitler.

I view Americans responsible as detestable, ruthless, cowardly murderers of entire peoples.

From this moment on and forever after I will view as my enemy anyone who has anything to do with these barbarians for any reason.

The hatred of simple people from the entire world must rise like a great wave to drown them in shame.


Athens, 21.3.2003







Mikis Theodorakis
