Hypocrisy at it's finest

Is it really so hard to understand why so many people seek our destruction? Would we not feel the same if it was us in their situation? Aren't we all just a bunch of hypocrites (myself included) far more interested in what some idiotic celebrity get's upto, rather than really giving the time to think about what's going on in the world? Are we really the good guy's in all of this?

Imagine what the people in iraq must of gone through, imagine watching your precious family literally get blown to bit's, picking out your dead sister's limb's that are strewn throughout the rubble that was once was your house. Would you feel liberated? Or would you seek vengance? Its hard to truly imagine these horrofic scene's when we live in such wealth and comfort. The bubble we live in is not the real world, we do not really see or have to deal with the attrocities that our carried out in our names, with our money.

Are we any safer from terrorism since we invaded iraq? of course not, a monkey could of told you that forcibly invading a muslim country would only breed more terrorist's and hate. That's why i find the government's action's so suspicious, telling us this war on terror is making us safer is an insult to our intelligence. But it's alot easier i suppose to live in our little bubbles watching our precious tv shows pretending the world's gonna sort itself out and that in the end the government will do the right thing.

I beleive in god and try to be a good person but i fear that my attempts will be in vain, and that god will not forgive me for letting these things happen, with out so much of a murmer ,while i reap the benifits of living in such a wealthy country.

Whats your point?

We are not safer since we invaded Iraq? .. You want a cookie for figuring that out?

Do you think the war in Iraq makes people around the world not like us? .. They didnt like us before hand *shrugs* so again whats your point? .. Is there something unique about your post that I am missing?


Not every one feels the same as you, you know?

Its great to read that there are people who have benifited from this war and i dont want anyone to think that i dont appreciate how brave our soldiers have been, there alot braver than i will ever be.

However most parts of iraq are still a mess as is afganistan(not that the media ever bother to mention it, i wonder why?).If the government cared about human life it would of exhausted all diplomatic methods before invading. Due to way the country was invaded i doubt there will ever be peace there, and the violence will be on going, but as long as the oil is protected, who cares eh?
Its great that certain people have benifited from the war but at the end of day it wasnt the governments main intention was it? Our Governments only get involved when there is something to be gained or protected from their economic/power point of view. If we want to start liberating people why not oust tyrants like mugabe of Zimbabwe.
