It’s a terrible thing when 32 people die in an unexpected way in a peaceful setting. The hurt doesn’t dissipate however when it’s in the middle of a war zone with trigger happy militias filled with hundreds of people like the guy at Virginia Tech. It hurts just as bad when you find out your father died trying to get to a food store in Baghdad as it does to find out your son or daughter has been killed trying to walk to class. Murder is murder, and the people left behind hurt as badly in Iraq as they do in the United States. Last night they picked up 45 bodies off of the streets of Baghdad. Maybe if you compare what happened at that college today to what happens everyday in Iraq you might just be able to grasp the pain and the suffering we have brought to that sad and isolated nation. A nation that is disintegrating from within because we have taken away the very structure of their lives and left in it’s place empty promises.
Even though I grieve with the families of those that died today, it does not take my mind away from those that have been dying for years now. I actually had to witness our sham of a president tell the news people that if we don’t stop them over there, we will be fighting them in the streets of America. Just WHO will we be fighting in the Streets of America? Will we be fighting different sects of Muslims that will all unite at once and row themselves over here to kill us in the streets? Are the Muslim people the second most powerful military in the world? Will they fight the Russians and the Chinese and the Indians too?
How absurd this nutjob we call our President sounds. What’s even more absurd is that not one Journalist, and I use the term loosely , ever asked him the question of exactly how are they going to get over here? If they wanted to kill us in our streets, they don’t have to win in Iraq first. This man that calls himself the president is insane. “If we don’t stop them there we will be fighting them on American streets”. Look, I heard him say it. That right there is grounds for impeachment due to mental instability. Take the Vice-President too because he’s said the same thing.
The next time the president says that we will be fighting terrorists in our streets if we don’t continue this war, just call him a liar. I just did.
