Are we a people who must always apologize for the few? I think not!
Are all Muslims a people who resent and despise our existence? I think not!
Who is driving us to the brink? Is it really religion?
Who really would gain the most from violence and destruction?
Why Was The Stupid Film Made? Rather Obvious Isn't It?
Are the people behind this film really religious extremists? Couldn't they just be extremists using one religion against another? Couldn't that be true on both sides of the coin?
A small group of Arabs, possibly of the Muslim faith torches our embassy, we are quick to accuse and condemn all Muslims. A small group possibly of the Christian faith make a derogatory movie about Muslims and all of Christianity is to blame.
Seriously people, this whole business in the middle east is getting out of hand. Do some of you really want to kill all Muslims? Do some of you really want to kill all Christians? Bet there are loud no's to those questions.
There are those who thoroughly take full advantage of using religion not only as an excuse or cover, but as a tool in achieving their own selfish goals.
Is Another World War Imminent ?
Don't really want to think so, neither do you. Can't ignore the fact that the table sure is set for it. The excuses are in place. Everybody is always so determined to believe that history always repeats itself to the point that they don't recognize when it is. Okay, I realize I may be losing you. Let me help zero you in. The murder of an emissary(s) from a country in the country being visited is the most common trigger(excuse) used for the purpose of going to war.
Stop, Not Over The Edge Yet
I am not,
in any way shape or form saying that we are going to war or encouraging such an idea. It doesn't matter if you are left or right, not relevant here. Think as an American, think as the person "you" are whether you get up and go to work every morning, or are stuck all day waiting for that phone call that gives you a chance to go to work.
When I say the table is set, just take an objective look around at reality. Not only tangible reality, but the reality of , make it your opinion of our current moods, inter-personal and inter-cultural attitudes about each other. Not just in this country, but around the globe.
Scratching out a living, getting jobs, taking care of your family is tough on the majority of the people . Getting tougher on a generational and sometimes faster basis. A whole lot of people have nothing to do. A whole lot of people are fed up with their own governments and or interference from outside governments.
Hopefully, before we face the real prospect of our government asking us to go to war, we can have two questions answered.
What "exactly" are we fighting for?
Who "exactly" are we fighting?
From not wanting to fight to having no choice but to fight rests more on the whims of several governments and peoples than just our own.
No Panic Please
Just another one of those paths that are possible yet distasteful to let your mind wander down on a weekend. A path few ever travel.
Just for the record I want to recognize that on the weekends the "kids" are out there, make that in here. That's fine, this is an article for them to think about also. After all if it does sadly come to a major war you kids that are of the younger variety will be the cannon fodder. Truth!
Just in case some of you missed my inference I would like you to understand that when it comes to intellect, judgement should not be made by age.
