Peace II

The silence is deafening,
no one is talking
as the count is posted
on the nightly news.
Far more than 9-11 are the
obscene figures 
for Arab lads from across the world
slain at our hand.
This is insanity,
this is a travesty
and no one speaks.
This is not war,
this is revenge,
a slaughter, murder.
We must walk tall
we must be proud enough
to come home and
we will all face
whatever anyone throws at us.
We will face it here.  
We are brave and strong and
we've thrown enough bombs
at their widows!!
Stop!  Stop!
Peace Now!

    Great what you wrote here, Sue!!! War is never a solution, neither is revenge! About Afghanistan only to mention that this war cannot be won. The Sovjets before failed and so will all others. It is the same with Iraq. Thea all don't want Western hapits and ideology and this we have to respect. I have lived for some time on a kibbutz in Israel and I am also informed about the problems. Problems can never be solved with hatred and fights...Wishing you a relaxing weekend...Gert

    Sue, I don't know enough about the intricacies of what is happening there to intelligently know how to comment. I was truly against Iraq. I felt we should have stayed in Afghanistan all along. It may be too late by now to curtail anything. I think you are probably right on this. What a sad world it is! why can't we all just get along?? LUv, Andrea

    Man will never learn. WAR DOES NOT SOLVE ANY ISSUES. As long as young men and women are willing to go fight wars for these politicians. Let them go fight their wars. Great write, Sue. Peace and love, Audrey
