Rule #866

We live in primitive times, where war comes easy, where most people can't think for themselves, and few have the balls to try to change things.

Yes, yes! "Primitive" is the right word. Vapid "celebraties" are idolized, reading is a lost pasttime, children are lined up and shot dead, we're bombarded with ads, commercials, selling techniques so finely honed we no longer know they're sales devices. It's a lousy era.
By design, I put the phrase about the children in the middle of the trite. War has become just another mildly interesting spectator sport that we notice when we can tear ourselves away from electronic amusements. On another blog, I saw a picture of a child in Iraq, maybe two, missing both legs and an arm. How could ANY objective of any kind be worth this?
Our leaders deserve to rot in hell and if we don't notice the carnage, we should be forced to join them.

There has always been war. The United States has been involved in some kind of war constantly since about World War I. We didn't call them all "war", but that is what they were.

If you think children weren't being killed and mutilated over there before we showed up, you need to pull your head out of the sand.

Yes, it sucks, but it's not all the fault of Americans. The whole world is going to Hell and has been for some time.

I can think of worse fates than losing arms and legs. NO objective is worth people getting hurt?

Wow, talk about primitive.

You need a bit of perspective, take off those rose-colored glasses for a while.

But, I know what you mean... you're just a few hundred years too early for such thinking.

Hmm...I wonder how words can be so misread that their meaning is completely distorted. The comment by Jes is bizarre: I never said I thought children weren't being killed "before we showed up" or "it's all the fault of Americans." Talk about vapid...

Mimi, it's called insinuation. Semantic arguments will get you nowhere.
