Seeing the little white rings around Chirac’s eyes on TV yesterday reminded me of this comment I found on our blog:
"if you or your people mattered to the world our leaders wouldn't all be on vacation.
Bush = Texas AWESOME
Blair = Caribbean Even Better
Jacque = South of France so so"
Then, after spewing some pretty hateful comments about Islam, he wrapped up his diatribe with this:
“I can’t wait for the GAS to not be needed so that we can watch that part of the world wither on the vine of life”
I guess the only thing sadder than the corrupt money hungry politicians out there parading around as defenders of “freedom” and “the civilized world” are the sheepish constituents who eat up their ‘good vs. evil’ propaganda, much the same way their stated enemies do. (See “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen)
To those who believe the Lebanese should solve their differences by force, also see “any book about the history of this country and its horrific 15 year civil war.”
We have learned the hard way that violence does not work. Some of you-- at least those who have not been completely moved by propaganda-- will see a more recent lesson in today’s Iraq... or whatever's left of it.
