are the Peacemakers?
I wonder when we will mature enough as a people to see that we are all
terrorists to someone, somewhere: Muslim, Christian, and Jew alike. All
of us are certain of our stand and right to own, control, demand; we are
so certain, we are willing to keep killing and being killed, obsessed
with who started what, when. If we could all acknowledge what we have
in common -- terrorism -- we might have a starting point.
How can Bush stand and say "you guys over there, stop this fighting,"
when he is making plans to attack people who haven't yet attacked us,
and making plans for a never ending war, wherever he wants to wage war,
all in keeping with the best interests in oil and the Carlyle Group.
One of the reasons it's accepted to have people over 50 run things in
the world is that they will act with wisdom. There's no wisdom here. These
are a bunch of adult men whose testosterone seems to have gone awry. I
have sons in their 20's and 30's who show more wisdom than who we have
running this country. Our leaders are just a bunch of self-serving, pathetic,
war mongering boys who have been turned loose in a candy shop. They don't
seem to realize how dangerously ill they are, how sick they are making
us, and they don't even care.
The people in this administration aren't just idiots, they are dangerous
idiots. Why do people keep saying "Bush did a great job after 9/11"?
How is it a measure of greatness when you take a "superpower"
and crush a third-world country? We've bombed on ground and below ground
(probably causing the Afghanistan earthquake) and we still don't have
the perpetrators. We aren't any safer now than before. What exactly has
Bush done to earn "greatness"? Nothing.
we too terrified to acknowledge that Bush and his administration don't
know how to lead? Is that too frightening a concept for us? Well,
he doesn't know how to lead, you cannot apply 1950's solutions to 2002
Millions of people all over the world celebrated Passover or Easter and
prayed for peace, at the same time giving their approval to a government
totally committed to war. Bush
cannot be effective in negotiating with the Mideast, because he doesn't
know how. Sharon, Arafat, and Bush are warriors, they are not peace-keepers.
They don't know how to respond to events any other way than war.
we have any peace-keepers in this world right now? If we do, we'd better
find them fast, because it is all spinning out of control. If people think
that it won't affect us, here in the land of the free, they are dead wrong.
It's time to stop caring who started this, or who is right or wrong. It's
time for some " mature adults" to step up to the table, not
men with arrested development.
