BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

And in the end, after an unbearable amount of death and dying, destruction and devastation, they’ll all sit down at a table and negotiate an agreement. Each side will send out press releases claiming victory and applauding themselves, while it’s our children who died so needlessly!

As I watch the war drums beat yet again, the 24/7 news coverage complete with annoying inappropriate rock music, the “expert” punditry along with the politicos spewing their forked tongued rhetoric for the war, the not so subtle references that bring fear to a crescendo in order to garner public support, I cry over the deaths and the maiming of innocent people! I cringe at the destruction; I am incensed over the devastation and I can’t help but think back to 2003, pre-Iraq, I can’t help but remember these are the same people beating the same drums, spewing the same rhetoric! Is controlling the Middle-East part of their plan for world domination? I have to wonder, though, 3 or 4 years from now, will it all be another quagmire, more insurgency, greater sectarian violence, relentless horrendous death and destruction, will it spill over and spread to other places, other lands, other people, will it be my children whose names are on the “collateral damage” list, all because of man’s desire for power and greed?

Mr. Kenneth C. Daniel has written an opinion piece in today’s Atlanta Journal Constitution that asks some very relevant questions of the clergy in today’s world. He very eloquently brings to the fore some of the striking differences in religious philosophy of not so long ago and the hijacked hi-jinx of today. “WWJD”? and then “WWYD”? are questions worthy of answers.

"President Bush has been very clear that, through his leadership, he has made the world safer. My question is: how much safer can the world afford to have him make us?" -- Jon Stewart. Out of the mouths of comedians, come the most profound questions!

After listening to John McCain’s suck-up support for the Bush administration on the Larry King Show, I was struck by the thought that even the best of them (the Repuglicans) will end up caving in to whatever way they think the radical wind is blowing!

* * *

“Rove said, 'Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers.' ... the Bush administration characterized Rove's comments as 'very accurate' and stated that the calls for an apology were 'somewhat puzzling' since he was 'simply pointing out the different philosophies when it comes to winning the war on terrorism.'" Given the quagmire in Iraq, and the current mess in Israel and Lebanon, Rove’s Repuglican chicken-hawk war philosophy isn’t doing a whole lot for “winning the war on terrorism” either! In fact, it’s provided the terrorists a momentum for recruitment!

* * *

Lest we forget, it would behoove us all to take a walk down memory lane and revisit Iran-Contra, just to see what Repuglicans are capable of doing for the sake of (tongue in cheek) “democracy”! What are a few broken laws, or a few missiles sold to terrorists, when the release of hostages and “democracy” are at stake? For modern day Repuglicans, it has now progressed into, what are a few lies and the deaths of thousands of innocents as well as the deaths of over 2500 American soldiers when George Bush wants to dominate the world? It’s beginning to look as though the entire Repuglican Party is composed of sociopaths who lack a conscience! Nothing at all has been learned from history, nothing has been learned from the horrors of war, George W. Bush is the aggressor in this the 21st Century and believe me when I say Bush blew up the bridge that Clinton built!
