Drums Of War Pt.2

Can you hear them, the drums begin to beat again, excuses are touted and "offences" are found to justify our actions and build the foundations for another catostrophic war.

The sabres are well and truly being rattled! One side finds "weapons" that were supplied by the other and they deny they have ever sent or supplied weapons.

Meanwhile in the free world we discuss the effects of torture scenes shown in a popular TV show, we are so desensitised to violence and shock that we no longer care what we are see because its all on "TV" we have lost touch with reality somewhere!

Real people are dying, not some glamourous characters in a TV show or a movie we see death and destruction everytime we turn on the news, real people facing real loss fighting for survival against opression and supression of their human rights.

Yet we sit in our comfortable homes and let our governments do what they will, take illegal actions and goto war when we the people they are elected to serve do not want to, politicians have forgotten what their purpose is.

"that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain--that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom--and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
