Al Gore; past and present
Yes, during that time, Al Gore was the Vice president of the United States. He could have done a lot to prevent or to avoid these genocides against people of Iraq.
Additionally, the fact that in his run for presidency of the United States in 2000, he chose Joe Lieberman as his running mate, is extremely unjustifiable. Lieberman; an American by birth but an Israeli at heart, has demonstrated so many times how his priorities are based on the interests of Israel. He has shown so many times that he is nothing but a warmonger Zionist. But yet, Al Gore had chosen him for his to-be vice president. A very questionable move on Al Gore's part.
Now, my mixed feeling about Al Gore started back in August 2003 and January 2004 and a couple of other occasions, when I wrote about Al Gore's position towards the issues related to the Environment and Climate Change and the Bush administration's policies with that regard. I have to admit that I now even feel more respect for Al Gore as I see him making real efforts in a positive direction.
After watching Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth", I feel great admiration for his efforts and his great fact-filled documentary. The documentary, if you will, has been presented in a very comprehensive and easy-to-understand format that will make a huge impact in making us feel how earth and its climate is fast and dangerously moving towards the trashhold point with no return. I strongly recommend watching this documentary. I also sincerely applaud Al Gore for making such a great and critical documentary.
