I apologize in advance. I know full well that what I am about to say is probably not fair, and must surely be due to some deep error on my part. But dammit, I can’t understand it.
So, I’m saying to those who preach peace with Iraq, “Where were you?” To those who want to stand atop Iraqi installations (military or otherwise) in the belief that you will protect it or become a martyr, “Where were you?”
I admire, on some level, people who are willing to go that extra mile for peace. Yet I have to wonder, when tyrannical dictators crush their populace, “Where were you?” Why didn’t you help then?
Now I am a young man. I couldn’t have stopped men like Kim Jong-Il and Hussein and Mugabe from destroying their nations. I wish I could have. But WHY do you want peace now, after what was worth saving has been kicked and muddied and stained with blood so much already?
Sigh I’m sorry. Maybe this belongs in the Pit.
