She sings good!

I never thought that this will be my first post in my blog, but sometimes you can't control the situation and the situation controls you. I was just surfing the net looking for some softwares when I read about an interview with Celine Dion donating some money and criticizing Bush's policy. Both seemed good to me till I got to read her own words, she said:

'How come it's so easy to send planes in another country, to kill everyone in a second, to destroy lives, at a time when Americans need to serve their own country'

Here I was really shocked because I'm a big fan of Celine, I wasn’t shocked because she criticized Bush's policy but oh my god not in this naïve and superficial way. She can be against the war (I think too many are) but saying "to kill everyone" well who's everyone I'm still alive and many others in my country! And most of the killing in Iraq are done by the terrorist groups not by the American army, I'm not about to defend the American army way of acting or what I think about Bush and his policy maybe I will do this in another article. Dear Celine if you have a point and you what to say it say it but there is no need to tell lies about it or even saying something that u don’t know what it means just like the "planes that kill everyone". Well Katrina made you speak and I wish you didn’t and please next time when you feel that you need to give a helping hand don’t speak just sing it would be much better believe me.

Oh Celine. You are so important because you can sing, (while your husband gambles away your fortune in the casino).
Yes, "everyone" is dead in Iraq. We have killed "everyone" 5 times over. Once again an example of someone on the left comparing apples to oranges and thinking only of short term future (a year at the outside) and not caring about what kind of world she leaves to her child.

HI Sooni,
Thank you for your post, it is so unfortunate that so many of the "celebrities" here in America, don't read blogs like you and ITM, I appricate your comments regarding the TRUTH about who is doing the killing in Iraq. Whatever one feels about President Bush or his overall policy, the important thing is to help the Iraqi people to rid your beautiful country of those mad headchoppers and murders. I look forward to reading more posts from you.

Sooni,
Thank you for your insightful comments. Unfortunately, these "celebrities" do a lot of damage when they speak about subjects of which they have little, if any, education. They are able to do a lot more damage than the traditional ignorant person because the media listens to them and broadcasts their every word. Celine, if you ever read this, wars and rescue operations take time and planning. The Iraq War didn't happen overnight and the organization of the largest rescue and disaster recovery operation in our nation's history doesn't happen overnight either. I know that you're used to telling your butler that you want fresh lobster from Maine and you see it on your dinner plate that evening, but most everybody else operates in the real world where it takes time to move 100,000 people out of a ravaged city and move in tens of thousands of troops and many thousands of tons of supplies.

She also said something to the effect of

Please.

Sooni-you were recommended by ITM. I welcome another insiteful Iraqi voice speaking out. If you have not found out already, most celebs
have little knowledge and no experience with the real world most of us live in. As a result their pronouncements usually make little sense. AS Bernard Goldberg says in his book "100 people screwing up america","there is more diverity in the Taliban than the 90210 zip code". (90210 is the zip for much of hollywood).
Good luck on your newadventure.

Sooni, nice post! Regarding the intellectual singer Celine Dion one glaring fact comes to mind with her criticism of President George Bush. Celine is a Canadian of French dissent. As far as her opinion on anything related to the USA my immediate response would be similar but less polite than yours. Merely, thanks Celine now shut the **** up or please relocate to your native land.

Welcome Sooni. Ms. Dion can sing, but that does not mean she has a brain.
Believe me when I say that the Bush administration is doing just fine in Iraq and even better in the USA. The attacks against him are because his political enemies are frustrated by his sucess as measured by the progress in Iraq and they are trying to claim that Bush's attention to Iraq made it possible for a disaster in the USA. Time will reveal that that very political enemy is responsible for the problems in the USA resulting from the hurricane. Not to worry, Americans are well informed and we don't throw our leaders away just because the defeated are allowed to complain.

Hey Sooni,
Did you see the video of her Sooni? I hate to say, but I thought it was comical. It seemed like a singer, trying to be an actress, and she had not eaten in days herself.

I can tell you what went wrong! There was a Hurricane and the dam broke. A big huge natural disaster.
What does Iraq or President Bush have to do with that? Nothing

Good to see your new blog. I will keep an eye on you.

Some people believe that celebrities have some superior capacity to understand events and situations better than our elected officials or the people that are experiencing the events they are called upon to speak about. I believe that the opposite is true.

Celebrities are cushioned and protected from the real life that you and I must experience on a daily basis. This does not mean that they are not familiar with the strains of living a more open life or the Paparazzi and the like. However, their worries and needs are not mine nor are they the worries or needs of the people I know, work with or call friends.

So how can they speak for me or anyone I know or love. They don’t and they can’t.

Do I or anyone I know have absolute faith in George Bush, absolutely not. However, I do believe that he is doing the will of the majority of Americans and all freedom loving people of the world when it comes to our goals and ambitions in Iraq and elsewhere.

There are those that say that a democratic Iraq or a democratic Arab is not possible. They say that you don’t want this and couldn’t handle it if it is given to you. I say those people are either naive or are downright racists. The naïve can be educated and the racists must be exposed for what they are.

America was not ready for democracy in 1776, but after Brittan let us go we had no choice but to do the best we could. We almost destroyed the ‘great experiment’ in the 1860’s but somehow we survived. What does not kill you will make you stronger.

Iraq will be a success, not because America says so but because Iraq says so and with America’s help it is happening.

Sooni - we've got a lot of people over here who speak out of emotion based on what they see. If they thought even one bit they would remember that it is good to wait to get the actual facts of the matter. When you go on emotion you are very likely to be shown foolish. Things are often not what they appear. There's a saying, "Remain silent and men may think you a fool. Open your mouth and prove them right." Yes, singing would be better.

It is possible to be talented and still have the IQ of a bowl of oatmeal. My favorite example is Elton John. A gifted person who has an actual IQ (74, IIRC) slightly higher then a chimp or dog. Dion appears to be in the same boat. Better teats though.

Congratulations on your new blog, Sooni. I look forward to reading your accounts of what life is really like in Iraq these days, both good and bad. Unfortunately, our news media over here have an agenda that they want to promote, and as a result we rarely get the full story from Iraq, only the bad news.

As for Celine Dion, for some reason entertainers in the West seem to feel that their access to a microphone automatically makes them experts on foreign policy. As such, many feel compelled to offer up their inane opinions at every opportunity. Celine Dion and The Dixie Chicks should stick to singing. Susan Sarandon & Tim Robbins should stick to acting. And Michael Moore should simply swallow poison.

The most important thing you can do is tell the truth about what is
happening in Iraq.

We are all hoping for a much faster healing process between
the new government and those who
held authority in Saddams time
so that the Iraqi - Iraqi killing
will stop and all security forces
can be directed against Zarqawi.

If the Americans can leave quicker
then expected we can use the money saved for our new domestic tragedy.

Investigations will be conducted
to find out how the money provided
to prevent flooding was spent ...

The people of Iraq can use this tragedy to demand the end to greed
corruption, and mis-management
of the governments money.

People must realize that our former President Bill Clinton
was in office for 8 years and his
administration did NOT rebuild
the New Orleans flood control system and He did NOT dismantle
Al-Queda either ... its easy to blame after the fact ...
much much harder to take action
and commit resources ahead of time

You say that most of those killed are killed by the terrorists not the americans. How dow you know? The americans never tell us how many iraqis they kill. The iraqi "government" never tells us. So how do you know? Do you have some stats or are you yet another propagandist who is on the CIA payroll.

Celine trashed whatever little intellectual credibility she had when she went on Larry King Live. I am a huge fan of hers, and have been before anyone ever heard of here in the USA. However, she better stick to crooning other people's lyrics and not resort to shouting out her own... she may have inadvertantly harmed her Vegas career.

I am an American who reads Iraq The Model every week. I read your post on Celine Dion and was appreciative of your critique of her ridiculous diatribe, but a bit annoyed by a lack of respect for our President. I don't think you need me to tell you that you would be on your way to have your eyes gouged out if Mr Bush hadn't overthrown your president, Mr Hussein. So, best to keep your particular criticisms of him to yourself for a long time to come. I am sure Americans are ignorant of many of the things we have done improperly over there, but keep the big picture before you... without Bush, you'd be nobody to us.

 
At 12:36 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Speak up Sooni. If you're angry with Bush, Dion or Santa Claus - let it rip man.

It's tough for us Americans to get a sense of what Iraqis are thinking. It's the Iraqi blogs that seem to provide the best information. For whatever reason, American media can't dig up any stories outside of the Green Zone - and not much more than just what the military tells them. Oops, the military briefings include updates on schools, hospitals, colleges, and the IDF stand-up... So I guess the American media is somehow incapable of even reporting what has been reported to them - unless somebody died. Nope that's not right either... change that to "unless somebody died a firery bloody death". Apparently they're also incapable of finding Iraqis to do the reporting.

So the best way we have to find out about what's going on in Iraq is to hear from Iraqis. (and Major K... and Michael Yon...)

So preach on Brother Sooni. Let us know what you're thinking. How's life? Getting any? What's up with these arhabi rats?

Thanks for posting.

Bush is dumb as a rope ashat and a zealot to boot."

Hey, Sooni! Hi from Vancouver, Canada. It's too bad that talented but otherwise brainless celebrities get so much more air-time and media coverage for their emotional bleating than critical thinkers do for their insightful blogging. When someone like Celine Dion unleashes a torrent of emotional sewage the way she did, it makes me embarrassed to be a Canadian, a white person, even a woman, I just want to be so UNLIKE her. ;-) Looking forward to more of you in the blogosphere.

Yes, Celin Dion did made a fool of herself, didn't she? And just a quick note, she is French Canadian, not a Canadian of french decent, sheesh, my American amigos mess this up all the time. ;)

So, now she's a small-town Quebec girl who made it big in hollywood, with a nice voice and fixed teeth.
ooooh, la la ! You'd love the roasting she's getting here. hee hee

Seems one needs to filter all media sources with your salt shaker handy, because they ALL want to be like hollywood and be - oh so 'provocative'.

IMHO I don't think people in general are grasping the enormity of the devastation caused from this storm, or showing the appreciation for those who are doing the right thing in this horrendous situation.

With kind regards Sooni,

According to the moonbats, US is reponsible for 6000 - 8000 innocent deaths, in the process of liberating the country and its cities. This is only a fraction of what Saddam used to kill in 6 months, in a bad year.

And then compare this to 22,000 killed by the "freedom fighters".

I say lets send Celine to Qaim where her friend Zarqawi has taken over. They just executed a woman for not wearing the veil over there.

http://www.torontosun.com/News/Columnists/Coren_Michael/2005/09/10/1210132.html

The references to Oprah made me cringe a bit, because there's a lot of truth to it. I try to see the best side of Oprah, because she does a lot of good for worthy humanitarian causes, but sometimes I question her priorities, like … spending one million dollars for a wedding and just one couple. It boggles the mind.

i would love to hear about what is going on in iraq. i read michael yons blog all the time. he's mostly in mosul and writes amazing stuff. looking forward to yours. freedom isnt easy and it definately isnt free. but now you have a chance...take it and run as far as you can and show the world that it can be done. i believe that almost 600,000 americans killed in our civil war to free people from slavery and nearly 500,000 in world war 2 to free the world from hitler ( who killed approximately 6,000,000 jews). take care,

Great piece and illustrates the reason I avoid interviews with artists whose work I enjoy.

Good luck with your blog.

Sooni,

Welcome to blogging!

Celine has a good voice, but she has the intelligence of a turnip. You can tell from the vocal style she uses, that she is a creature of her producers. She doesn't write or arrange her songs, and it's just as likely that any political "opinions" she spouts are written out for her by her handlers.

What a fun post and amuzing comment section!
Celine, Celine.
Great control of her voice, amazing sense of discipline in her work, but little understanding of the world beyond that, like many artists, I am afraid to say. Her songs are pretty but are they deep?

As you know, Sooni, I am a French Quebec-Candian artist so I have been in this turnip soup! ; -)

" Celine Dion is from French Canada, where anti-Americanism is a way of defining the national identity for goodness sake."

We could say... "where anti-Anglos is the way!"
Collective hatred is the glue of choice in a crumbling and self hatred miserable society.
Quebecers remind me of the Palestinians in their blaming of others for their tragedies.

Thanks for your fun post!
Although our history of hardship does not come close to theirs, the attitudes have the same roots in human hearts, moral corruption.

Well, She was moving, she 's always speaking her mind like that, yes she should control herself when she speaks but you have to admit she's natural not like some other stars.
And I read on this blog that French Canadian or Canadian are anti amrerican! What ? I'm a liitle bit upset to read that. Some people are, probably, but you can't make a long story short! You just can't make generalizations! Every people is different and has different opinions!
