Here on ATS, we are quite use to the WW3 threads, discussions of "Acceptable Losses" and "What if" scenarios.
We offer our insight, experience, knowledge, theories and everything else we can throw at the subject of numerous Wars around the World past, present
and future. But many times we overlook the human side of things.
We go back and forth on who is right...who is wrong...who said what and who has more military strength. Guess what? It really doesn't matter because
you, me and those other citizens over there are the ones that will be killed for the greed and egos of TPTB anyway. I would just like everyone here to
stop for one moment and think of what is going on in Iran right now.
Can you for just a second imagine what it is like for a mother looking at her child, listening to the radio or TV blaring out messages of a possible
nuclear war coming within weeks or even days? It really doesn't matter to her who is right or wrong and my guess is that many don't even know why it
is coming. It's not her fault as it's not yours or mine. I don't imagine she's too thrilled with her leaders right now either.
Like most mothers, she is working hard, putting her children through school, helping her parents, loving her husband and hoping for a better future
for her child that she probably won't have. And she is probably thinking..."I didn't start this. Why am I going to die? If my child lives, how will he
survive without me?"
I could not imagine the fear and terror these people must be experiencing right now. They are stocking up on food, water, medical supplies, clothing
etc. They are planning routes to bomb shelters and trying to store seeds, secure farm animals. And for what? What did that mother do to deserve this?
In the West, we are going on with our daily lives, watching Jersey Shore and peeking at the OWS once in awhile. We are buying whatever we don't need,
going to school, complaining about work and throwing away leftover food as usual.
Anyway, I just wanted to ask people to stop and think for one second about those people over there that are looking at Nuclear War in the eye...Daily.
How would it feel? How would you handle it?
I know that I would be looking at my life in a whole different way and reassessing my priorities if I were in that situation. In fact I can guarantee
That's it. No Rant or Political stance...Just a thought for fellow human beings that are going to get caught up in the games of the elite and pay with
