They’ve started bombing Baghdad. Apparently the first bombs have hit the southern suburbs.
I can’t believe my government is doing this. What made us elect such evil and immoral leaders as the ones we have in the US, Britain and Australia? Democracy seems to have been the main thing that was hijacked on September 11, and not by the hijackers – but by the conservative faction of politics, who are now starting to show their neo-fascist “ethnic cleansing” leanings.
I guess I’d hoped right to the end that democracy and, ultimately, justice and fairness would win out. This is the start of a period in world history where “diplomacy” means “war preparations” and it is a free-for-all for any nation that has a beef with any other nation.
