What do you make of these two headlines?
Number one: ISRAEL DESTROYS FAMILY HOME OF SUICIDE BOMBERS IN RETALIATION FOR ATTACKS AGAINST ISRAELI CITIZENS AND TO DETER FURTHER SUCH ATTACKS.
Number two: UNITED STATES DECLARES RESOLVE TO DETER SUICIDE BOMBINGS BY RETALIATING FOR ANY ATTACKS AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS.
Americans were stunned, amazed...couldnt imagine how life could go on...where was god...where was meaning...where was hope...who could have sex ever again, who could smile, who could dance, who could ever spread bullshit again...and all because Americans were attacked and innocent civillians lost their lives...they did just fine...god was in his heaven when a million people were butchered in Rawanda...Auschwitz, we got over...600,000 dead Iraqi children we take in stride...why?
Are we the measure by which any tragedy is valued...is god out of his mind only when America gets?
Two cars were stopped in Florida, where else...because "someone" overheard the driver of one car say something like..."Amerivcans will weep on such and such a date:" Calls went out, the highway patrol was mobilized...the cars were stopped, the people arrested and for all we know detained who knows where. What was in the cars...who were these people..who overheard them? There is a WAR on so these questions dont need to be answered...for all we know they were Assyrians, speaking that "funny" language...as a few years ago a white guy in Turlock started a fight because some Assyrians were "Talking" about him.
Where is our language now...where is our heritage...are we so brave now that weŽll defy this war mood and stick around to explain ourselves...to promote ourselves?
We were rabbits before...are mice safer?
