may God stand
The founder of Hamas is dead.

There's this picture of a man next to the photo and it looks like he's speaking but his mouth is open, and you can see his teeth, well, what there are left of them, and his beeard, like a great greying Elizabethan ruff for his mouth, and his eyes, black and weary and full of ..grief, or outrage or maybe both.

And all I can think anymore is: It never ends. It will never end until the last person standing falls. Until America's too burned out and poor to support either side, until the Egyptians and the Jordanians and Syria and everyone else has has their say and their side. Until some bombs fall somewhere, you betcha.

Maybe not even then.

And I have to wonder what untold generations of mischeif Bush's heavyhanded attempt at Empire building has done. How long it will take before "American" stops meaning "target" and people who travel in foreign countries stop pretending to be Canadian, just to get by.

I'd ask instead when it was that I could go over there but I realized that if I find America stupid and sullen and beautiful now, it'd make me crazier now................
  • It's not apathy...

    So much as a sense of emotional preservation that keeps me from pondering these types of things. When I begin to really and truly think about the world at large in terms of human conflict, it weighs me down and darkens my soul.

    When I ask, "When will it end?" my religious life answers "when God ends it." But that brings up a whole 'nother load of questions that darkens my soul and mind even more, and pull me farther down. Then I start getting angry and sad and spin out of control.

    I care very much about the human condition, and the 'state of the world today.' I do; but it's hard. I don't know how I feel sometimes.

    I know your eloquent description hurt my soul, and made it heavier. I am comforted by the fact that your soul cries out against it. My soul cries out at it, getting only the echo of pain back for an answer.
  • (no subject) - triestine
  • not in our lifetime. So best let idiocy to the idiots.

    Yeah well, some of those idiots have really big guns and I'm fairly alarmed about the fact that some of those idiots might try (or are trying) to blow me up. I don't wanna get blown up. Not in my lifetime in any case.

      So we can blow you up, just not blow you?
