We are living in some serious times, my friends, and at some point we will have to ask ourselves, "What has been our part?" From what I see, our government has no interest in personal accountability. We are the people of a shitfless leader whom we have not deposed. Although we may never be accountable to ourselves, I wonder how long it will take other nations to hold our feet to the fire for what george bush and crew has done. The arrogance of this regime will be visited on all of us, our children and our grandchildren both financially and in terms of world standing. The anger I feel is just what's on top- at the core of my self, what I feel most is sadness and shame that we couldn't do any better than this. The United States issued shrill warnings to the North Koreans, but they sounded increasingly hollow given the entanglement in Iraq. The North Koreans continually appeared to be calling the United States' bluff. And if the Bush administration expected the removal of Saddam Hussein to deter Kim Jong Il from forging ahead, it was in for a disappointment. The North Koreans said they needed nuclear weapons to prevent the United States from exercising the doctrine of preemption on their territory. "We're not like Iraq or Yugoslavia or Afghanistan. We can defend ourselves," Kim Myong Song, a North Korean guard at Mt. Kumgang, boasted to The Times last year. http://www.latimes.com/news/printedition/asection/la-fg-wrong10oct10,1,3420849.story?page=1&coll=la-news-a_section Please read the article, please. And this I say to all those "well meaning" people who still support the regime- fuck you. Fuck you all. You used illegal tactics to forfeit away our rights and egotistically claimed to hold the sole key to God and the path of righteousness- fuck you all. I'll die beside you if we end up in a world war, please just shut up and sit down. ANYBODY will do a better job. Oh, if you feel the need to exclaim your love for God, go to church. Our government is NOT the place to do it. You stupid motherfuckers.
