Personally and for the record. I'd like to see Iran and Israel put down their penis extensions and come to a face to face at a discussion
table [Like the USSR and the US did] and talk it out! Who here can disagree with this proposition?
I'd like to see that, too. I'd also like to see the USA withdraw all their troops from everywhere, and facilitate such discussions, rather than
"choosing sides" and acting like a schoolyard bully.
The only persons I can think who would disagree would be the military/industrial complex and the egomaniacal warmongers who are just itching for a
fight to start.
It's asinine. That grownups behave like gossipy bullies or vindictive "mean girls", poking and poking....jabbing and dissing....
really? The human race seems so
adolescent as a whole. Thank God for those who are truly peace-keepers and peace-seekers, rare as they
I also don't get the "USA must never abandon Israel as an ally" thing....my mom does, though...maybe it's a generational thing. I don't remember
Israel becoming a sovereign nation, but I know it had to do with Britian after WW2.
I'm just sick to my soul about all the destruction of beautiful, historical places and art, of the rich legacy of ancient cultures, of innocent
lives, of the Earth -- our home! -- and of what tenuous peace has ever been established.... based on dogma, or greed, or blind hatred.
I wish there was a way to open the minds of those in charge -- those with all that might and say-so; whether the UN, world leaders, or insane
terrorist cells; we need -- desperately -- a change of direction. A new trajectory. Sadly, I'm beginning to doubt it will happen in my lifetime
(which is "only" half over at best), if ever.
