IRAQ: 4TH YEAR

After reading President´s Bush statement on the fourth anniversary of that bloody craziness called “Invasion of Iraq” today and after registering once more his recycling of the same words, namely that “there´s been good progress”, I see a stronger need to continue efforts on all levels not just to stop war right away but basically to seriously consider the prospect of an International Criminal Court investigation READ ON…. Will it prosper?

Thanks for your comment, Kev! I was recently told by one of my friends in U. S. that my post on Iraq didn´t really contribute that much, that they just stoke the fire, the "global resentment" and "hatred of America".

I told him that I did not really seek to contribute to any cause but basically to express my own frustration!!

I also told him that it was precisely the great majority of American people the first ones who oppose Dubya´s craziness and that
it was me, in the first place, who did not want to continue posting about Iraq any longer but that I had tried to close my eyes before thinking that the problems would go away and that that hadn´t really worked out.

Like I said before: it seems that somebody musta been cheated when he was a kid!!!

It isn't so much about oil- it is about those that have been invaded with the few simple words which causes such atrocities against humanity...

GREED
PRIDE
Over Zealousness

Again- people are not born bad..They just end up allowing themselves to fall into the pitfalls of ways that affect us all...

Perhaps in a way the friend from the US was correct in saying that at times posts reflect not so much a contribution- but it does in fact at times- give an impact as to how *we americans* are...It is not about a specific peoples, it is however about a country that I reside in that is being divided by opinions and differences with the number one contributing factor- MEDIA....

Media has a hand at showing and telling what we all *think* we should know...In that the fingers all point back at the prime suspects...*US*....so yes...for those that post nothing but video images, and things of that nature -it may seem that fingers are being pointed...Instead- contribute to the cause- not just post and point fingers... It has nothing to do about it being a sad world..We know this... Become bigger than the problem and or issue at hand... Become proactive and a solution- rather than a sideliner..We dont need anymore hype from media influences. We need appropiate actions.

Therefore- the question should be asked and remains for ALL of us when we look at ourselves in the mirror each evening-

"What did I do today to contribute to help break the chain in a world in despair and sadness?"

Thanks for your comment Callie, it really made think. Let´s see:

I am not sure if those generic concepts such as “Greed”, “Pride” or Evilness are good enough for us to explain the situation. In fact, that seems to be the first problem, at least for me: to “rationally understand” something that is completely irrational: “unbearable” as someone said. But even when I am fully aware that when we refer to Iraq, raw reality transcends anything we could say about it, I feel the necessity –even an obligation, to do it. As someone said: “homo sum…” ya know.

As for the American people, I don´t think you are divided over this issue. Like I said, I think that an overwhelming majority oppose Dubya´s foreign policy, namely Iraq. Otherwise it would be good anyway: public debate is the bedrock of understanding between humans.

On the other hand, I think that in fact fingers must be pointed: this mess has an author with a name, as we say here in Mexico. That is why, as I said, I agree with an International Criminal Court Investigation.

Finally, as for the videos, posts and all, I think they do contribute to form a more educated opinion. I think that you agree with the fact that the more we know, the more effective our action can be.

I totally agree with the rest you say.

Z-

1.I am not sure if those generic concepts such as “Greed”, “Pride” or Evilness are good enough for us to explain the situation. (Do you disagree in saying that the very words impaled in people-humanity does *not* contribute to such sad affairs? Because to me- the very words cause those that accept that as a part of their personae- are the ones that become careless and reckless in governing not only themselves, but others affairs.)

2.I am fully aware that when we refer to Iraq, raw reality transcends anything we could say about it, I feel the necessity –even an obligation, to do it. (Reality is based on what people perceive after digging to the smallest of facts. Somtimes those perceptions can lead to undeniable truth. It isn't wrong to want to see reality, but it sure makes life harder to course through when relying upon it. and yeah- I understand reality .)

3.As for the American people, I don´t think you are divided over this issue. Like I said, I think that an overwhelming majority oppose Dubya´s foreign policy, namely Iraq. Otherwise it would be good anyway: public debate is the bedrock of understanding between humans.
(Of course I am divided. On one hand- I get the emails from my friends that are serving that cannot say much- but re-enforce that they are doing a job and want to continue doing that job until it is finished. It is then where I have to choose a side. Do I go against the war- a war that is not condusive to anyone but the wallets of those in so called power, or do I still support those that are there-following an obligation in which they signed up for..... As for Public Debate- Bring on the Beer.)

4.On the other hand, I think that in fact fingers must be pointed: this mess has an author with a name, ( Yes...so...we all know who the author is...So...what do you do about it? Continue playing 5 Finger Monty- or step out of the sidelines and take the call of conciousness and become a solution?)

5.Finally, as for the videos, posts and all, I think they do contribute to form a more educated opinion. I think that you agree with the fact that the more we know, the more effective our action can be.
( I agree that forms of media can be helpful in enlightening those that wish to understand, however the ones that wish to understand must also have a proactive approach to not believe ALL of the hype. I will reiterate what I once said at the round table in your presence- "If you or a person *ANYONE* does not know or recognize their rights, they are simply a slave to society.)

*winks...Buy the beer.

PS.. I have a job interview tomorrow for an attorneys office..Riddle Me That!

-love me

Callie:

1. “Do you disagree in saying in saying that the very words… does not contribute to such sad affairs”
I never said so. I said they were not good enough to explain the situation.

2. I don´t understand...

3. Go against war...

4. “What do you do about it? Continue playing 5 finger Monty…?”
I would not use those words for an International Criminal Court Investigation… but ok!! Whatever…

5. O. K...

Good comments... thanks! Cheers!

In respects to numbers 2, 3, and 4.

2. Reality is in my opinion that wars are inevitable. They have been going on since time...It is during the times of war that we all must come together and find a solution on how to dismantle it accordingly rather than leaving it up to the powers that be.

3. I am against the war- but not against standing with those that are risking their lives.

4. The five finger monty comment was based on the pointing of fingers...Yes- we know who is the culprit...However one must know the game...A International Criminal Court Investigation- sure...It will *somewhat* happen- and then the Elite will cry immunity, they get tapped on the hands, and it's over....So- the fact of the matter is- if the Constituion which was created For the People- By the People is no longer respected- how does one get the issue resolved with the Elite???

Example- Currently that I know of there are 52+ persons trying to sue the President or those in Government standings.

51 of those are Mexicans being held in Texas- on death row. They are *still* in tango- trying to overturn their convictions- through a botched International Court Of Justice dialogue.... It's like.....what do you do?

Callie: I appreciate your comments. I think that it is always worthwhile for everybody to compare our points of view with the other in a form of a constructive dialog. I clearly see our points of agreement and our disagreements. Both are o. k.
Thank you for this cool (and I must say, not very frequent) exercise.

Cheers!
