New?

I don't know everything behind this or know much about the past reasons or future outlooks of it but I would think more people would be talking about this?

Let the truth set you free...

I'm a huge fan of documentaries.

I'm an even huger fan of good documentaries (ie. not made by the likes of Michael Moore!!!).

But I am absolutely the hugerest fan ever of documentaries about the war in Iraq . Especially when they are able to present the viewer with solid facts and a non-biased perspective.

I think this one is going to be sick, and I'm really excited about it.

No End in Sight

The question I have, is do you think that even a movie such as this, packed with the truth, can effect any change? And by change I am referring to our fearless leadership.

Visions of War


I often forget that there are other parts of the world in turmoil than the Middle East. This was a movie made around the 80's about a priest who stands up against the dictatorial regime in El Salvador. Without violence and the only weapon being the love of Christ. Sadly I lent out my copy years ago and still haven't gotten it back. It is terrifying to think that people are living in this world who have to worry about their daily existence.

The Army We Have

While working for a video game store recently I had the opportunity to meet many people who served in the military. About %90 of them did multiple tours in Iraq or places in The Middle East. As I talked to these young men and women I became less and less comfortable about my views on the war. Where I would have told people emphatically I was for the war in the past now I am cannot say so with such a clear conscience. A recent article in the Atlantic Monthly has made it even more difficult. Do we still have the best force for such a difficult task?

back

hey i was out of town for the past 5 days, but I am back now. I dont have time to write much now, but there are a couple interesting article in today's New York Times. There is a cover story on the mental illnesses and undertreatment of contract military and civilian personnel in Iraq, an interesting editorial about Rwanda and Africa, and finally, some very good news about Rwanda in the little "Other News" section. I can explain later too
