India and Pakistan have traded artillery fire in the perpetually disputed area of Kashmir today, and have also both test-fired missles capable of carrying nuclear weapons payloads. There are other areas that are going to flame up as the war with Iraq takes up all of America's attention. Most folks think that we are not the police of the world and it is arrogant of us to think that we are so powerful. But watch what is happening in the rest of the world. North Korea will undoubtedly use this time to rattle their sabers a little more, which will cause us more problems, and India has decided to use this time to stir up a little shit with Pakistan. This is a classic example of "when the cat is away, the mice come out to play". These countries would never pull this kind of shit if we weren't involved with another war. That's not American conceit, that's fact. A third World War is looming on the horizon, and we do not have the resources to even defend ourselves from attack at this point. Scared? You should be. This isn't a joke, and this isn't a video game. There is actual blood being spilled on the ground right now. What are we going to do about it? Is it too late to protest the war? Is it simply too late for anything but prayers? Am I being to nihilistic? Am I asking too many questions? Possibly, but we need to be ready for almost anything at this point. War is indeed Hell. Just because we are not in the armed forces, that doesn't mean that we won't be touched by it. I may be full of shit, and most likely I am, but I have been paying close attentionto world events since the start of Bush's presidency. I see a pattern of poor decisions that are most likely religious in nature. Remember that Bush is now a Christian, and I can't stand Christians. I guess we will all vote next time, won't we?
