I feel sick to the stomach knowing that war has begun.
I feel sick knowing that innocent civilians are going to get killed. I feel
sick knowing that those sent there to fight it out are either going to kill
or get themselves killed. I feel sick for having this morbid thought that
the world is going to be pushed into instability with extremisms of all
sorts being unleashed because of this war. All thanks to Bush & Co.’s
thirst for oil.
We wouldn’t be having this war right now also, as Robin Cook — former
UK foreign secretary and leader of the House of Commons, puts it in
“if the hanging chads in Florida had gone the other way and Al Gore
had been elected” back in 2000.
This war is totally unjustifiable. No doubt Saddam has got to go. But not
this way. At least not until every diplomatic avenue has been exhausted.
Bush mentioned that even if the UN does not sanction the war, he
would still go ahead with his plans on the pretext of protecting
Americans from impending threats. Just what direct harm can Iraq do to
America at this time for heaven’s sakes? I have this feeling that Bush
& Co. somewhat used the UN Weapons Inspectors team to confirm that
Iraq does not have any WMDs so that they could comfortably go in and
take Saddam out and subsequently milk Iraq of its oil resources.
Otherwise, how would you explain the situation with North Korea? You
KNOW you wouldn’t wanna mess with anybody who has got some nukes
at their disposal, would you? If there are any impending threats Bush &
Co. should be worried about, it’s going to be the retaliation from within
their midst should they continue with this mindless agenda.
I can almost hear Yoda utter, “Begun this Gulf War 2 has”.
Yeah, this entry was purposely made on 20.03.2003 at 2003 hours.
