Spring In Baghdad


"..Spring should be about renewal and rebirth. For Iraqis, spring has been about reliving painful memories and preparing for future disasters. In many ways, this year is like 2003 prior to the war when we were stocking up on fuel, water, food and first aid supplies and medications. We're doing it again this year but now we don't discuss what we're stocking up for. Bombs and B-52's are so much easier to face than other possibilities.

I don’t think anyone imagined three years ago that things could be quite this bad today. The last few weeks have been ridden with tension. I’m so tired of it all- we’re all tired.

Three years and the electricity is worse than ever. The security situation has gone from bad to worse. The country feels like it’s on the brink of chaos once more- but a pre-planned, pre-fabricated chaos being led by religious militias and zealots.."

and still the madness continues.
and still the bullets fly.
and still the innocents bleed.
and still the bombs drop.

bless all those souls who appose this evil war.

i am ashamed to be from the untied states these days knowing that "my" country and her president are the cause of the atrocities.

may the iraqi people find it in their hearts one day to forgive us.

religion kills. there is no further proof needed.

reminds me of the old bob dylan tune "with god on our side" and my favorite line-- the last line--

"if god's on our side, he'll stop the next war."
