and now for something completely different... a commentary by moi

i usually do not keep up with current events very regularly, especially when it's political in origin, especially when it involves a whole lot of agenda pushing, and especially when it is wrong and pisses me off. and most especially when it involves sending our nation's finest in to be sitting ducks in a pointless politically and economically driven IMMORAL action.

for those who do keep up with current events, what i say is nothing new... but never having written anything on the subject, and only expressed my views to very few people in passing, and briefly at that... i feel the need to express myself on the subject. forgive me if i bore you.

IRAQ... yes, that. i was on my way to getting my email and the new headlines are on Comcast's home page as i click the 'get mail' button. i sometimes glance through them, almost never reading the articles as i don't believe in subjecting myself to outside negativity, i don't need any help there! lol! but the latest headline to come out of iraq somehow caused me to click on it, i dont know why... intuituion? compulsion? boredom? don't know, don't care, it's done.

in reading this article which talks about remains from a 1991 shiite massacre being found, the following struck me, it says and i quote verbatim "Human rights organizations estimate that more than 300,000 people, mainly Kurds and Shiite Muslims, were killed and buried in mass graves during Saddam Hussein's 23-year rule, which ended when U.S.-led forces toppled his regime in 2003." ...the last line struck me as odd, and i'll explain why in a few... please indulge me and re-read the last line: ..."during Saddam Hussein's 23-year rule, which ended when U.S.-led forces toppled his regime in 2003." propaganda is so fucked up.

we all know the real truth. i say nothing new here.
1. bush's agenda (and his friends in the military industrial complex that dwight d eisenhower warned the country about in his farewell address before jfk took office) was NOT to free the iraqi people, he could care less, it was to free the iraqi OIL, make his friends and supporters rich (and himself no doubt) and it's ironic that he says that it's our moral duty to help the iraqis achieve freedom from a dictator that this country supported and supplied arms to for much of his tyrranical reign!
2. this is my take on the matter. economic and industrial imperialism is no different from the territorial imperialism of the spanish in the 1500's, the french and english in the 1600-1800's the rest of the european powers in the victorian era, the united states manifest destiny and genocide of the native americans in the 1900's, the germans and japanese of ww2... it's all the same result in the end: ...lots of people die to make a few evil bastards rich.
3. i borrow a line from abe lincoln and add to it here... 4 score and 7 years ago, our forefather's brought forth a new nation...AND THIS AIN'T IT!!!! ben franklin would be very displeased and promptly take action too.
4. the constitution of this country makes it our moral imperative as CITIZENS to speak up against what our government, for which WE the people are responsible for, is doing if they are doing wrong. apathy is going to be the end of all of our freedoms that the blood of patriots (our fathers, brothers, grandfathers and so on) have paid for, with their bodies, minds and souls... for they endured the horror of war.
5. our government, with it's self seeking, pocket lining, self serving, greedy aims has made enemies of much of the world's population, and made us, the citizens of this nation, targets for terrorism. we did it to ourselves by allowing it to go on for generations. no one is innocent now. not us... not them...

ok, enough... this is a sex site... get back to what you were doing and have fun lol!

photo icon is original sculpture: The Chessboard of Good and Evil (chess pieces are individual ceramic sculptures, the board and box are cedar and pine carpentry) 1980 ...also my most practical artistic accomplishment, the board has a built in hidden drawer.

...That which does not kill me merely pisses me off!...

Sorceror, I'm glad you posted your opinion on this subject! Throughout the many conversations we have had in the last month we have never touched on this. I find your point of view interesting, and I totally agree. I come into contact with many people daily in my business, and each one feels different about this. However most that I speak with feel very much as you do on the subject. Some people try to force their opinions down my throat, and that burns my ass! But they must do that to serve their own agenda, for I believe that deep down somewhere in the recesses of their minds, they know they are misinformed and must grasp at straws. The beauty of having opinions on such matters is that they are ours to express, not force. Unfortunately, some of the ones in the current administration just fall into line and express few of their own my opinion!
