    Chris, the crux of your complaint about Obama was evident before his first election... Terry (over the past years, people more and more (defensively) say ' yeah, but he's better than Bush'... well his English is better...)

    I always had a soft spot for Obama..but what you have written..definitely makes me ponder. I guess in the end all us about money and greed of many politicians from different countries....Its about oil..Its about selling war equipment..And innocent people die...and peace where are you?Heartwrenching poem.

    I dont really think this is all about us vs. them, our children or their children. We ARE all the same, human beings. I believe the governments of the world view ALL of us as expendable, not one being more valuable, or worthy than another, just expendable. and now.... the big secret has emerged... Russia is talking Nuclear disaster. and who is going to get nuked? That...would be us...

    I greatly fear you speak the truth... shutter to think of this world going further into an abyss ..eloquent and sadly truthful write

    I'm so moved by the addition...YES...the same...the same...human life is the same...It isn't easy..what you've done, are going to get censured...criticized...hold you're ground. OIL IS a big issue...Look at the rescue of Kuwait...Who rescued Cyprus from Turkey...America's Ally..when they took half of the country and occupied it? I have friends who are refugees from the NORTH in their own country! Who said anything when the Armenians were massacred? What was there to gain? No oil...

    IN FACT...what prompted the Genocide of the JEWS was the fact that the WORLD turned a blind eye to the Armenian Genocide. It is a well known fact that Hitler remarked...when he gave his orders to begin that atrocity..."After all, who remembers the Armenians." Oh LORD!!! You don't pick and choose who to help due to YOUR OWN benefit. You HELP because we are all CHILDREN OF GOD! Thanks Chris!

    Chris, I think the blinders are coming off for a lot of people. I'm appalled at my government leaders actions. I can't stand to even look at Obama's face or listen to his voice. He speaks with such eloquence, but everything he says is a lie! He's giving the US a bad name. I just had to let that out! I get more disgusted with him every day. And Eileen, I am so sorry you are going through this stressful time. You and all the Christians in that area are in my prayers. Kim

    Chris....I'm disillusioned as well. You are right to say that there are hidden motives....SO SO sad. I won't go into all the details, but you have further opened my eyes to many things which people here already know..... but what most there in your part of the word don't! Politics is never clean, Chris...Meanwhile, the church organization we work for has sent out a letter to everyone today for us to get ready for possible evacuation.....That is OUR reality!

    Catie is right....that was shown on TV...I didn't see it, but when my brother-in-law told me about it...I nearly got sick! Even here in Lebanon...people are expecting booby trapped cars to go off anywhere at anytime...Malls are being targeted, I heard. We were at a coffee shop in one of the malls yesterday when one of the ladies said her husband was concerned that we were at the mall because of this. Fear is mounting...I'm depressed! Thanks for speaking out!

    Did you see the film where the rebels cut open one of Al Assad's men while he was still alive, pulled his heart out and took a bite? I am so disgusted. I cannot imagine the US supporting such rebels....yet look.... here it is upon us!!! Hugs, Catie
