A few articles recently have led me to wonder we are going, both as a US society and a world society. The latest is about the CARE worker: http://cnn.netscape.cnn.com/news/st...20041116/1232937778.htm&photoid=20041022NY125 The other is from the day before about the Marine and the "execution". IMO the worst is Margaret Hassan's execution. From what I have heard her life was devoted to providing to the Iraqi people. The whole story on those Iraqi's that the Marine came across is questionable under the "eyes of God", something GWB should understand. I do not condone, but can understand the actions of "insurgents". They have been forgotten by maybe the "greed" of the world. They and "terrorists" that have no standing army, do what they can, to affect public opinion. The opinion can be both positive and negative in any of the "warring" parties. I was taught that the "resistance" fighters from France were Patriots that deserved our admiration. While they targets "military" installations, we have moved on to a point that I am sad to say that the military personnel mean little in "global politics". I say that with a heavy heart, given that my Dad served in WWII and Korea. WWII is not something that IMO dispute. Korea on the other hand can be looked upon as the beginning of the end. In looking at "civilian" verses "military" targets that "insurgents or terrorists" target. The "opposition" does need to strike at the "hearts" of the people they are trying effect. To me it is the difference of trying to defend yourself against rifles against your bow and arrow. In my world, I wonder if we were to give the Palestinians equal fire power against the the Israelis, I wonder what Peace might have been.
