I haven't put much of a political nature on this blog, mostly because other people do it so much better than I can. If I attempted to post about things political, you'd be seeing things such as "Bush is evil. Cheney is a crinimal." I just find it very difficult to organize my thoughts when it comes to world events, politics, etc.
It's looking more and more like BushCo, regardless of what most of us think, are going to take "military action" against Iran. This administration has already shown a complete disregard for the opinions of the citizens as well a complete disregard for actual facts. Despite the helplessness I feel surrounding this situation, I think it's important for all of us to do whatever we can to remind people that "military action" means killing innocent civilians, environmental disasters, destroying historic treasures and spending mountains of money that should be going toward helping people (health care, schools, housing, alternative energy - the list is practically endless.) Most citizens of the US probably couldn't find Iran on a map, much less conjure up an image of that country, and, guess what? Iranians don't really seem all that different from you or me. From what I can tell from pictures I've seen, it's also a beautiful country and Bush and his buddies want to blow it up. I can't believe that they can get away with even talking about it. They'll do it anyway and convince enough of us it's what we want. And the f***ing democrats will go right along with it. When do we get to impeach them?
I'd like to thank all you people who, day after day, remind us of what is happening both in this country and in the rest of the world. Keep it up.
Here's a little slide show I found on YouTube. I would guess there are lots of others out there.
