Stop The War

Bring Our Men Home

Keep Your Nose Clean and Mind Your Own Business

Mother drilled that into my head and I think that could apply to relations between countries as well.  Actually, maybe it wasn’t my mother.  Well, in any case, it was somebody and it stuck.

US foreign policy slays me.  Why do they have to have one, anyway?  Why does any country have to have a foreign policy?  I mean, except for the one that you stay out of other countries’ business.  And speaking of business, why can’t we do business with anyone and everyone?

What annoys people about the US is their audacity to think they can butt into everyone’s business. Their audacity to think they know best and know what’s best for the rest of us.  Meanwhile, their own country is in dire need of leadership and kindness, a national health system, safe streets and neighbourhoods.  Instead, it’s an “every man for himself” kind of system.  Wouldn’t it have been nice if the money spent razing Iraq were spent on creating a humane health system, help the disadvantaged to get out of the rut they’re in?

Seems that every adult owns a gun and is happy to remind us that it is in their constitutional right.  So what?  That was then and this is now.  When the Constitution was written, there was no army, just a rag-tag group of guys, each one with his own weapon.  But I digress.

I can’t believe that it’s impossible to be a good neighbour or friend.  We may not have the same opinions about certain issues but can’t we just agree to disagree?  Why point fingers and call names like “axis of evil”?  Who died and made Bush God?
