Civilians are Civilians, People are People

I find it quite remarkable how we in the West can be so shocked by attacks on civilians. Its not as if we aren't killing civilians ourselves. I feel utter sadness and sympathy for all victims of terrorism. But I refuse to be taken further down the road of hate, retribution, and pseudo-justice.

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.

How much more convenient could something be? Whether or not Bush is working with bin Laden (I'm trying to give him the benefit of the doubt but it gets more difficult every day), this benefits Bush/Cheney/Rove in so many ways.

I just posted my thoughts on this.

Can't agree more, and I'm afraid to mention what I'm thinking, because I'm afraid I might be right.

God Save The People.

I agree, and that whole faked shuttle blowing up thing...this administration has to be stopped!

I hate how this will turn people towards more hate for people they do not understand. This will not be solved by blowing stuff up, now matter how much they try to ram this idea down my throat.

I absolutely agree with you about the role the news media is playing in diverting our attention away from what is really happening out there in the big bad world.

The aftermath of situations like London yesterday are ime for careful, quiet considered reflection (on who caused it and how we might have assisted in causing it) not for jingoistic nonsense about retribution.

I have said more on my own blog

Before the attacks on us in 2001, Rumsfeld was lamenting that we needed a "Pearl Harbor" to strengthen the military. And then the comparison was made that the attacks were our "Pearl Harbor." Some writers have pointed out that that was convenient timing, too, such as David Ray Griffin in his book, The New Pearl Harbor. Strange coincidences! Let's hope a more thorough investigation is done on the London bombings than what was done on our won attacks.

Yes, I don't support the war in Iraq, but as you can see that these Islamic psychos on rampage would have done worse collateral damages on the US, UK and allies if the Marines were not sent to hunt for them.

On Africa, the G-8 Summit was a success as the President of my country Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo said so. And Africa means a lot to the US and UK. After all, Africans are not terrorists. Two Nigerians in the US Marines have been killed in Iraq and another Nigerian was killed fighting for the state of Israel. So, we are laying down our precious lives for the sake of America, Israel and the rest of those who are totally against terrorism and barbarism.

The media goes where the media thinks the people will follow. People, Americans anyway, aren't interested in dull agreements. They want big explosions and the opportunity to wallow in someone else's grief for...weeks on end.

The media loves sh_t like the London bombings.
