Iraq

from - smijer

In a world gone crazy, I can't talk about Iraq. I can't talk about the "war on terrah", a president who is above the rule of law, an ethic where war crimes are acceptable if we feel strongly enough about our needs and rights to win a war, in a time when Republic is being subverted in favor of Empire, covered by falsehoods to lull the masses. When I first started blogging, it was all a simple thing - did Bush do the right thing for the right reasons and with enough transparency, and will he do what is necessary to clean up the mess he made. I could talk about that. After Abu Ghraib, after beheadings, after price-fixing, after scandal, after torture memos, after paradigms, after cover ups, after cover-ups... it's just too much to digest, consider, and reflect on in a public outlet (even such a small one as this).

On the other hand, Jeanne at Body and Soul continues to takle these issues. One at a time, with the expected disgust, but with a grim determination, she airs them out. I just caught up with her posts for this week. Read about the new Iraq's new prelate and the disconnect between what Iraqis in Iraq have to say and what our Glorious Emperor's minions tell us about the recent strikes in Fallujah.
