OUR WAR WITH IRAQ Part V
Do you think it makes sense to wage a war against Iraq? Or are we positioning ourselves for even greater terrorist attacks, and world hate?
In this edition: OUR WAR WITH IRAQ - PART V
North Korean nuclear crisis
- And more on the Media
Can you believe that the Bush administration is actually acting as if the U.N. is a waste of the world's time? Well thank god the U.N. exists, because if not, our administration would have made an irreversible mistake long ago. Although our administration still has time to make that mistake, it is becoming more and more difficult for our government to scream out 'CHARGE', and finally send all of our young men and women into harm's way. The U.N. and its 191 member countries are in place to keep peace throughout the world, yet our administration is willing to bypass them for the sake of war. What kind of message are we sending the world with this action? How can the world trust us if we don't want to listen to them? If our administration feels so strongly about not listening to the U.N. and going against its resolutions, then why don't we as a member country just detach ourselves completely? That would negatively shock the world, and is probably why we wouldn't resort to such an act, so as a member country, I think we need to respect the U.N. a bit more.
Moving along to a real threat; the North Koreans and their nuclear arsenal. I would like to know when we are going to at least discuss the matter. We keep hearing that they continue to move their nuclear program forward, and recently launched an anti ship missile that landed in the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan, a South Korean Defense Ministry official said Tuesday. I wonder why they are testing anti ship missiles? Are they expecting to be attacked? And if so, by who? I have my own suspicions, but I won't comment yet, let's just wait. The U.S. wants the North Koreans to stop the advancement of their nuclear program, which the North Koreans will not do, simply because they feel they have to protect themselves. The North Koreans would like the U.S. to sign a non-aggression agreement, but we won't, simply because we don't want to take the chance of letting them continue to enrich uranium for further creation of nuclear weapons. We're at a stalemate here, what's going on? I'll tell you what's going on.
North Korea has some real weapons and the means of delivering them to our perimeters. The kind of weapons we should all be afraid of, nuclear ones, you know the ones that can destroy a whole city in an instant, disintegrate bodies to ashes in milliseconds, and slowly spread radiation beyond its intended target. These are the weapons we need to contain, these are the weapons we need to seek and destroy, the visible weapons, the ones being paraded around on North Korean streets like oversized trophies. But we're not doing it, instead we are chasing after invisible weapons in Iraq. Weapons that for some strange reason cannot be found. The ones in North Korea are right in our face. Analyze that!
While you analyze the above, make some room in your brain's thinking chambers for the following. Why does our president keep using god in his speeches as if to justify for the action he might take when he gives the go ahead for a war with Iraq? Since when does god advocate war? God advocates peace through peaceful means. Our president says "freedom is not a gift from the U.S. to the world, it is a gift from god to humanity". You are completely right Mr. President, it is a gift from god not from you, or any other human who thinks that using force is the way to keep peace in the world. God has not appointed our president to keep world wide peace, to seek out every evil doer and "bring them to justice". Our president was appointed by United States citizens to run our country properly. To make sure we are safe offensively, to make sure we remain financially stable, to make sure jobs are created and to make sure our laws and rights are not being violated. Of course I understand that Saddam is evil, but so is the devil, and if our president believes in god, then he must believe in the devil, so why don't we go after him also? Our president sounds like he has been given supernatural powers by a higher source to "rid the world of evil", but this is not the case, our president is as human as you and me, and can also make mistakes.
Here is the paradox. Radical Muslims believe in Jihad, a religious war against its oppressors. They have displayed the extent of their belief to the point where they become suicide bombers and kill themselves along with innocent humans. In their hearts they really feel justified, and believe they are committing these acts in the name of Allah. God. Now if we look on the other side of the wall, we as a nation are saying that to keep peace in the world we have to do the same thing. You're probably cursing up a storm right about now, but stay patient and open minded, this is how the world needs to start thinking if they want real peace. What is the difference between sending in troops who can potentially get killed in a war for our beliefs, and a Jihad soldier who commits suicide for their beliefs? Many will say that a Jihad soldier doesn't care if he kills innocent people, but do we care? I mean don't we kill innocent people when we go to war? I'm just asking questions here and attempting to make you think just a bit deeper than usual. Aren't our troops potentially committing suicide also? So what's it going to be? Is human kind simply using god as an excuse to perform certain acts for selfish reasons? Or are we just breaking all of god's laws? Personally, Mr. Bush should stay away from religious talk in his speeches or he will find himself in a whole new realm of criticism which will open the doors to what will be extremely difficult to hide, contradiction.
Haven't written much about my good friend Bill O'Reilly lately, but I can't finish this article without pointing out a few of his own ridiculous items. Remember Bill, you're cool, but I think your topics and viewpoints are beginning to contradict themselves. Be careful now, don't let those ratings slip! I can't believe your attack on Pony, which I feel was the most ridiculous segment you've had on your show. How can you be upset that they're using a porn star for ads, when the night before you had a segment about a nude flight to Mexico. You had so much fun on that segment, and never thought for one second about 13 year old American children. Knowing you, you're probably saying "it's not the same thing". Well according to you it is the same, because our children now know about nude flights, just like they know about Pony, and what do you think happens on these flights or afterwards anyway? You have children watching your show, don't you think they're going to ask their parents why people are flying nude? The other point is, what makes you think that a 13 year old kid even knows who Jenna Jameson is? Now they do know her, and all because you introduced her. Stick to the real issues you normally have on your show, don't start losing your audience.
think you need to stop these boycotts of yours, you are affecting our
economy, you're smarter than that. Besides, Pony is going to need more than
Jenna to sell their sneakers.
