I can't take it anymore.

I don't swear easily anymore (or at least I'm trying not to)... but...

Oh. My. God.

I can't take this any more. What the hell is wrong with this country? Why do people even think the pending war is right and good! How can so many condone the killing of innocents that has been happening and will continue? How can people be so blind?

I really don't want another Gulf War. But I'm certain it's going to happen. Our illustrious president will see to that - even if no one backs us up because no significant weapons have been found. Why the hell are we going after Iraq/Saddam, anyway? If we're going to war with anyone, shouldn't it be Osama? But we haven't been able to find him, so we'll just go after an easier target - one which we've been ignoring for 10 years.

I used to ignore this stuff. I didn't even let the WTC attacks phase me too much. It's always been more important for me to finish school. But I can't ignore it anymore. I just wish I knew what to do. Those who protest the war don't seem to have much effect. If Bush re-instates the draft, I'll definitely be protesting that; it's completely insane. But unless Rangel gets his way (extremely unlikely), I won't be drafted. So I won't be a draft-dodger, but I'll sure as hell help my friends to be.

I wish I knew what else I could do.

It's so sad and infuriating. Why do people want war? The media seems to be so pro-war too, it really feels as if we are in the Twilight Zone. My uncle who was drafted in Vietnam is only now able to talk about his experiences. He had to kill many many children because that was the type of warfare that the North Vietnamese used, it's so incredibly sad to hear him talk about it :( A lot of people will die, and many more will come home with scars that will never heal, and we'll only generate more hatred around the globe for us :(
