Life 2 (based on icon from tamnonlinear)

(no subject)

Just listening to President Bush's speach.
48 hours, then what?

I am not anti American.
I am not against those who have gone to the war.
And I am not in favour of Sadam.

But I do worry about the forthcoming war.

I do not think that there is a valid mandate from the UN to start this war ...
that makes any fighting a war crime.

There will be body bags coming home soon - this makes me so sad. The waste of
life is not something we should contemplate without international support.

And will the war be over quickly? OK, so "we" can use precision bombing and
all the clever technology ... but does that help in hand to hand fighting
in an urban environment. Has America not learnt anything since Vietnam?

I do not have words to express my feelings ...
see here for some words that express some
of my feelings far better than I can.

To those of you with friends or family over there I send you positive thoughts and
protection for you loved ones - little enough I know, but all I can do.

May our Gods / Godesses protect us all
