I had a major exam that day. No one did well on it at that.
I type this late at night, I should be in bed as well. -_-
So sorry in advance, I type this form the top of my head.
Hmmmm, to tell you the truth, I have been thinking about this quite seriously the last few days. Looking through saved newspapers, browsing online, reading books, and having discussions on other forums.
It actually sickens me if anyone downplays it, more so like spitting upon the memory of those that died in Pearl Harbor, The Blitzkrieg attacks in Britian and France.
Attacks do happen everyday. Ever bother to sit down and read the newspaper? Or watch the news channels? They are acknowledged. It happens in my town when rival ethnic groups fight for their turf. It happens in your town too. People die everyday, not because of war, but simply because of hate.
Why does war exist? Most wars exists for these main reasons: Control of land and its resources, Religion, Beliefs and Race.
And if you actually lost someone in these attacks, you would have cared now wouldn’t you?
Now, I live here in California, and for all I know, Californians have always been the strange ones as the other states puts it. I am a Citizen of this country too, and yes, I myself do bash the country. I do not agree with this war in Iraq, I do not care for the current president, I am pretty much the opposite of the American Citizen.
Although I do get tired of people bashing each other’s countries. So what if my country is not perfect, neither is yours. People get tired of the States meddeling their affairs with other countries. Understandable. There was once a time when they wished to be just neutral, despite Europe’s call for help. Pearl Harbor happened because the Japanese wanted the States to get involved. Two countries were creating Atomic bombs at the same time. The United States and Germany. Ultimately, one of the countries did set of the bombs. But in the end, both countries done terrible casualties.
Should The States truly stop its affairs then? The main reasons why terrorists attack the countries foreign embassys, and actual land? Maybe because we are an ally to Isreal which is always subject to attacks by the very same terrorists. Not to mention that it has been declared a Holy War as well, ah now see, Religion has a key into this, despite the fact that the states has a very wide variety of religions.
Of course in the end, we will have to take our responsibility. Every country, state and person should do this. Whether you are a Catholic ready to attack a Protestant, A white man who hates black men, heterosexual who hates homosexual… it all leads to one thing, a hatred in whatever that person, or country has.
As I said before, I dislike the current president. Hell, he did not even get the majority of the votes in the election. It leaves the point that not everyone voted for him, but only someone can pull some strings and gain that power. I also seriously doubted that the 9-11 attacks had any link whatsoever with the war in Iraq. Right when he got elected, a great majority of my freinds, family, and people I knew came to one conclusion, There will be a war soon. I simply put it as he is finishing what his father couldn’t have done. This war would have happened even if the 9-11 atttcaks did not occur, but since it did happen, it very well made a good excuse of having one.
I might as well throw this in here as well. I thought it was neat anyways.
Sorry for rambling, but at least I got my thoughts out for now. I am going to go to bed…
