I'm not one who's eager for war in Iran, so possibly I should not be replying to your post.
Basically, I'm posting because I sense you're feeling enormous pain and despair about the prospect of further human suffering and are hoping via
your post to persuade Westerners to see through the media glorification of 'just another war over there'.
I think you have reason for optimism. People everywhere are sickened by the invasion of Iraq and revolted by what they've learned about their own
There's a tremendous collective guilt and despair about what's occurring. People are approaching it from many different perspectives. Some believe
in a form of karma; they know we're living in comfort and safety which is being paid for by others' deep suffering and loss.
Others, no matter how patriotic they may be, are ashamed of what their government has done in their name and allegedly to protect their 'freedoms'.
Many realise they were lied to by their politicians; about 9/11, about Saddam, about Iraqis generally. Most have no fear of Iraqis and feel only
guilt and shame about the horrors that have been inflicted by our own policitians upon Iraqi children, women, men, animals, culture.
People now look at those hideous old fake-men (politicians) and see their cruel faces, their greed, their personal cowardice and their dishonesty.
These are the liars who used our menfolk to kill and torture and destroy an entire nation, who threw our youth into the grave with innocents' blood
on their hands.
We look at them as they strut and posture and lie to us over and over again. We loathe them. We loathe their wives and sons and daughters and
parents and friends for not spitting in their foul faces; for not having them committed to asylums, for not killing them as they slept.
We know that we are stained and that stain will never wash away. While we sit here in comfort, innocent children are coping with the pain of having
their arms and legs blown and burnt off and much worse. We're all, in some way, responsible for that and we will ALL pay a price, sooner or
Only the terminally deluded can justify what is happening and only psychopaths would want to wade deeper in others' blood.
The good news is ---- we're running out of psychopaths !
The Humans are returning and are rediscovering their conscience and their voice !
About bloody time !
