Mia Farrow slams ‘British bystanders’ over Parliament’s Syria vote

Mia Farrow isn’t happy with the “British bystanders” in Parliament who voted Thursday against military intervention in Syria. Farrow is certainly no isolationist: in the face of genocide in Darfur, she led the effort to have corporations pull their sponsorship of China’s “Genocide Olympics” in 2008. Today’s vote in Britain, though, was to authorize a military response, which even the Red Cross has warned could “likely trigger more displacement and add to humanitarian needs.”

It does seem strange that one of the most vocal proponents of gun control would have an itchy trigger finger when it comes to possible air strikes.

    It’s infuriating, Mia, because you haven’t thought it through. Just assumed if it comes from the President it must be true, honest and accurate. I wish the folk on the left would occasionally employ thought as well as feeling.

    Is this the woman who said Bush killed her nephew who died in Iraq due to a medical condition unrelated to the war?

    Did she refer to herself and others as “bystanders” when they were opposed to action against saddam who started two wars with his neighbors and slaughtered the Kurds more than once? I don’t think so.

    Dear Prudence,

      Chemical attacks in Kurdistan weren’t bad like these were…or was it that Obama wasn’t the Preezy? 6 of one, half dozen of the other.

    pete seeger was a “peace protester” when he was against US involvement in the conflict between fascist’s Germany and Western democracies of Poland, Britain, and France.

    Then fascist’s Germany attacked the murderous, communist dictator lead Soviet Union and he then became a war-monger (his term for people who wanted US to support the Western democracies when he was a “peace activist”) whose guitar, he claimed, killed fascists.

        well now, there couldn’t have been a chemical weapons attack in syria since the left told us back in ’03 that Saddam did not have chemical weapons & that the Russian escorted convoy that went from iraq to syria just before desert storm kicked off was just “clerical materiels” not saddam’s chemical weapons stocks for safe keeping with his buddy in syria.

    Bombing widens the war and kills more innocents. US or Western coalition troops in a ground invasion would end up attacked by both sides. A too little, too late intervention to validate Obama’s promises only makes a terrible situation worse.

  • ToyZebra

    What exactly are we supposed to do in Syria? There is no neon pink building with a big X on it marked “central chemical weapon storage”. And since Obama has telegraphed his intentions, whatever they do have will be divided up and hidden. And an attack may end up helping terrorist groups there.

    Wow Mia…what a difference a “D” makes in front of a President’s political affiliation:

    [ahem] From 2002:

    http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2002/12/11/1039379881417.html

    “About 100 US television and film stars, including Matt Damon, Anjelica Huston and Martin Sheen, signed a petition released yesterday against a possible US-led war against Iraq, saying “war talk in Washington is alarming and unnecessary”.

    Samuel L Jackson, Mia Farrow, Kim Basinger, Uma Thurman, Tim Robbins and rockers REM also put their names on the list of those opposed to such a US-led strike.

    “A pre-emptive military invasion of Iraq will harm American national interests. Such a war will increase human suffering, arouse animosity toward our country, increase the likelihood of terrorist attacks, damage the economy, and undermine our moral standing in the world,” the petition says.”

    Your hypocrisy is noted ma’am. Now kindly STFU.

    Any war in Syria will lead to nothing but bad news. Does she really thing that the UK, US and possibly France (ahem) can produce any good results in Syria? Russia and China have said to mind your business in Syria, and I agree with them. What is happening is Syria is horrible, but we only need to look in recent history like Somalia when we get involved involved in a civil war. There is no imminent threat from Assad to the US, so its best to not get involved.

  • Michelle

    She tosses that stuff out there and then runs to hide. I had an exchange with her on Twitter the other night. I called her on the carpet for calling Bush a murderer and a warmonger over Iraq, but keeps pushing for military action in Syria. Her nephew died of an accidental drug overdose while serving in Iraq – she blames Bush for his death. Then her brother, the uncle of the nephew who died, committed suicide here in the states because he was so distraught over the death of his nephew – she blamed his death on Bush as well. When I kept pushing her to explain how Bush was a murderer, but wants Obama to attack Syria…she disappeared. #typical

    • Republicanvet

      That is disgusting. I know she is a raving liberal, but this suggests she has no soul to use his death like that.

      • Michelle

        She has no soul. Her nephew died of an accidental overdose, much like Heath Ledger did. They simply mixed and took too much of the wrong prescription drugs, plus it was documented he had severe sleep apnea – not a good combo with meds. She told me her nephew committed suicide (although the military did not rule his death as that) so she could blame Bush. Then her brother committed suicide, and although he left no explanation, she claims it was because of the death of their nephew and again blamed Bush. And now she’s trying to shame the people of the UK for not wanting to bomb Syria and possible kill innocents? She’s a real piece of work.

        • Republicanvet

          She’s so fracking gung ho, when will she ruck up?

            Never. She wouldn’t even know what that means.
