Ok..I am trying to keep my cool here, as I am truly a very peaceful, social democrat pacifist.(As Gandhi said, though, don't mistake being pacifist for doing nothing.) But, when you add in the mental illness problem, and normal human emotions run amok, it feels personal. It feels like George Bush is not listening, doesn't care, and I feel very violated, my social conscience raped in a violent and brutal manner by his actions. I feel like all of the war-mongers are ready to come and spill the blood of my family (which could be an innocent family in Iraq). I feel Bush doesn't have regard for the millions upon millions upon MILLIONS around the world and in the US who oppose his unilateral action against Iraq. But, it feel's like the screams of millions fall on deaf ears. That makes me sad, very, very sad. So, I will say at least, I am proud that the country I live in refuses to participate in Mr. Bush's illegal overthrow of Iraq.
Check out this great music video to understand how I and so many others feel:
"War Is Over...If You Want It...."
