Says it all…

Standard

Now the spin begins… Beth sent me an SMS late Sunday evening… we punched the tele on and watched the charade unfold, orchestrated right down to the military garb on the person checking Saddam’s teeth and hair for lice…

Saddam ain’t a nice guy, but neither are those spreading and sustaining the fear of “terror”…

I took a bunch of stills and video off screen… intruiging images… thousands of people must be doing the same. I wonder who will ask of the Weapons of Mass Destruction now? The perfect smoke screen has been made manifest. The Bushs, Blairs and Howards will milk it for every pixel it’s worth. I’m actually relieved… once the noise dies down, perhaps the people of Iraq will find peace…


We are listening to Too Many DJs. (Thanks Warren…). It’s just gone past 5am. The essay birds are awake. Time to rest. We have a meeting at 11 after which should see version 2 of the Rowville-Lysterfiled History Project get up and out… Life goes on…

  1. Pi delurking here. I was about to logout last night when I decided to check one of the news sites, which is not a typical behaviour for me. This is how i found out that Saddam has been arrested. You think I’m developing some kind of psychic connection with the Network? Heh.

    Anyway, first thing I thought was: Okay, next the pundits will say that this is the America’s best X-mas gift to the world.

    Cynical binsoup. That’s me.

    All indications are that this may well be the case, Pi… Stock markets have shot up and SH will be accorded the POW rights as set out in the Geneva Convention… and what of the “terrorists” in Cuban limbo who have no rights? Somebody once said the first casulty of war is “truth”.

    Merry Christmas everyone… but will this bring peace or will the smoke screen become a dense cloud through which nothing is real… I think I’ll go hug a tree and swat a few mosquitoes.
