Civilians are Civilians, People are People
There are some media personalities who are now talking about "nuking Saudi Arabia" in retaliation for today's terrorist attack. Excuse me? Civilians are civilians. Lets not forget this.
Please read the post immediately prior to this post. I wrote it hours before the London bombings. Its almost as if the bombings were on some sort of cue. Bush's approval ratings are down. The G8 meetings are putting the administration in embarassing situations (who wants to talk about Africa and the environment when there is an uber-war going on). A day after London is awarded the 2012 Olympics. Mayor Giuliani happens to be in London. The terror level is now raised. And today, all the news stories about Valerie Plame, Karl Rove, the War in Iraq, they all take a back seat. In its place, we get to hear from the raving psychopaths again. We get to hear from the people who are hell bent on being hell bent.
Why hasn't one mainstream media source reported on today's military agreement between Iran and Iraq? Why do we have to go to an Arabic website to get such news? Its on days like this that news needs to be monitored like a hawk. Its on days like this, when our attentions are diverted, that the real news takes place.
