the true cost of war. . .

Posted in the insanity of war, things that piss me off on March 18, 2007 by fresnel

we often hear about the billions of dollars wasted on the unjust war in iraq.

we also here the cost in numbers of dead ….

occasionally we’ll hear about how we treat our wounded...

but what we hear too little about is the cost in terms of our humanity.

whatever you believed at the origins of this conflict, if you are still supportive of what we are doing over there, you need to go get a soul shine because yours has been sullied….

gee scott… what do you mean?

well—- read this….

thanks for telling me it was a good day until I briefed you. [Redacted name] — You are only interested in your career and provide no support to your staff — no msn [mission] support and you don’t care. I cannot support a msn that leads to corruption, human right abuses and liars. I am sullied — no more. I didn’t volunteer to support corrupt, money grubbing contractors, nor work for commanders only interested in themselves. I came to serve honorably and feel dishonored. I trust no Iraqi. I cannot live this way. All my love to my family, my wife and my precious children. I love you and trust you only. Death before being dishonored any more. Trust is essential — I don’t know who trust anymore. [sic] Why serve when you cannot accomplish the mission, when you no longer believe in the cause, when your every effort and breath to succeed meets with lies, lack of support, and selfishness? No more. Reevaluate yourselves, cdrs [commanders]. You are not what you think you are and I know it.

COL Ted Westhusing

Life needs trust. Trust is no more for me here in Iraq.

this poor man had everything to live for. a beautiful life, wife, children and a strong faith.

he voluteered to go to iraq… he believed in the mission, he believed in his leaders, he was a good soldier, and ultimately he couldn’t take what was going on anymore… so he iced himself

what you read above was his suicide note…

there will be a candlelight vigil tomorrow night (monday march 19) at big beaver and rochester road- 6pm. to protest the anniversary of the start of the war in iraq.

this incredible human being who’s humanity had been taken down to such a low level that he couldn’t live anymore will be at the top of my mind while i am there.

why does the dead bird thud?

Posted in poetry, things that piss me off on March 13, 2007 by fresnel

maya angelou has nothing on the suicidal fowl that crashed into the window of my truck today.

rollin’ down the road… on my way to work… and WHAM…

something hit my side window… right next to my head…

look over, what do i see?

bird meat. yum. now, i really could understand if the bird didnt see the vehicle… but i drive a beautiful gas guzzling suv…

i know that suicidal bastard saw my truck… he just wanted to do some damage on his way out. . . his own little birdy fatwa..

so, to answer maya… why does the caged bird sing?

because it is facing mecca.
