"Until the philosophy which hold one race superior
Everywhere is war
Me say war.
That until there no longer
First class and second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
Me say war.
That until the basic human rights
Are equally guaranteed to all,
Without regard to race
This is a war."
War indeed. Whether it's on the hot sand-strewn battle fields of the Middle East, or on the streets of Europe, I don't see it ending anytime soon.
You can always kill the terrorist, but killing their ideology is going to be much more difficult.
Terror came to our friends in Europe today. So, once again, it's time for Americans to cower in fear. (I always wonder why it's only when terror comes to folks in Europe that we act this way. Those terrorist in Africa are just as scary and should be just as newsworthy.) It's time for us to be fed with 24 hour cable news loops of the same scenes over and over, and for us to have to listen to right-wingnut politicians demagogue the issue in order to gain political power. (Really Ted? Police patrol Muslim neighborhoods in America? And where exactly would that be?)
Anyway, I would love to hear some suggestions from some of you field-hands about how we could rid society of the scourge that is Isis.
