I feel so much sadness for the Iraqi/Afghanistan people, and it just amazes me how so many people write off what's going on over there, and most people don't care because the propaganda has labelled the people of Middle East as terrorists.
The number of innocent civilians been killed hasn't even been recorded and its suspected the overall is between 200,000 to 1,000,000... (just Iraq) broad estimation as the military "aren't counting bodies"...
George Bush once mentioned it was 30,000... which is almost definitely far from the truth.
These poor people are getting slaughtered, their homes are being destroyed and destruction is everywhere.
And why! WHY are Americans STILL invading these countries, they aren't welcome and never were...
Apparently, Obama is also working on a timetable for withdrawing all U.S. combat units from Iraq by September 2010 and pulling out the rest of the U.S. force, currently about 14,000 soldiers, by 2012.
It pissed me off Australia had troops over there until mid-2008, all they're doing now is rebuilding the country they destroyed and why? To make profit most certainly! They hire construction companies owned by the richest of the rich, like the Rockerfellers, and the money goes to America... It's not helping Iraq at all, just helping them gain cheaper oil so they can greed even more money.
If your living in Australia/America or anywhere where you don't hear explosions and gun shots on daily basis then you really can't imagine life in Iraq, and I am making a presumption here as I too haven't been in their shoes.
It's so easy to turn a blind eye to such chaos when you don't experience it. Out of sight, out of mind right?
If you truly look into the lives of these people you can't help but feel sadness, imagine if America decided to invade Australia for some bullshit reason?
We has humans need to put a higher respect on life, not just our own and the people around us, but everyone you don't know. Something I find ironic is the fact that many Americans who support this war and don't care about the innocent blood being shed are fundamentalist Christians. Where do you think Jesus was from? Do you think he spoke English too? Plus do you really think Jesus would be supporting a war!? Sorry I don't mean to label I know it's not completely their fault but it's the truth.
Some people's vision of what's really happening in the world is so distorted that their whole universe is opposite of the truth.
What is truth? History is truth, actual event's that have happened over time, things that can be proved.
It's the stories in-between told by powerful people that distorts history which in turn distorts the truth.
Free yourself from the hatred of the middle east and realise the prejudice comes from a corrupt system of false realities.
