- supported the war on Iraq, your eyes will be opened to the truth.
- opposed the war you will get some media support. Warning: this may outrage you and make you feel like you should have done something.
So far I've mostly been blaming Bush, but he is just the figurehead of all this bullshit. I trust very few people in the executive branch right now. I used to think that we should just bear with this regime until 2004, but now I really believe that Bush's time is up. There are others who were just as bad as—if not worse than—Bush himself, but the president is supposed to be (pardon the naïveness) a model citizen.
Colin Powell is the only one who is trustworthy. For example, when addressing the UN he did not cite the bogus intelligence report about Saddam Hussein's attempted procurement of uranium from Niger claiming that it was not credible enough.
The propaganda worked on the American public for quite a while. The view elsewhere in the world is quite different—on my trip to Italy this Spring there was a Pace (Peace) flag hanging from every other window or balcony. Americans have reason to crave violence—after September 11th pretty much every decent person in the United States was angry, but how long can we let our government take advantage of our woe?
They say the war is over, but people are still dying.
