What Is It Good For? Absolutely Nothing (Say It Again!)

[ #919 ]

Pudge is wrong of course.

It isn't "only in America" that people don't see the need for the attacks on Afganisatan[1]. All over the world there are sane people who are disgusted by what they are seeing on their TV sets. We're are watching our so-called leaders trying to justify bombing an already devastated country back into the middle ages. It's difficult to see it as anything other than the overreaction of a bully who got tripped up in the playground.

If bombing terrorists is such a good idea, then why have we never fired cruise missiles at Belfast? Is it because those terrorists are white and (supposedly) Christian.

6000 innocent people died in the USA. How many have died in Afganistan in the last 48 hours? That's a figure that I'm finding hard to track down in from any western news source.

[1] A typo - but let's leave it there :)
