Hello Hello!!


March 25th, 2003

It's early fall and there's a cloud on the New York skyline. Innocence..dragged across a yellow line @ 07:41 pm

I'm currently feelin: sad sad

I was sitting on my living room floor last night watching the news, The Hands That Build America playing in the background, and as if my some weird luck they started showing the POW's and those who have died thus far and I started to cry. Not just tears but a strong cry and I don't know why..... I'm for the war but I just wish it would hurry up and end.....

wow your one of the first people that actually said you are for the war. good for you! i am for it if it truly is for the right reasons. and to tell the truth whether anyone supports it or opposes it, i think it is important that we make the distinction between the war and supporting our troops. because i think our troops deserve our respect and prayers. it is not their fault they are put in this position, most of them (like my fiance) signed on to protect the country they belive in

Very well said. I only support it if it is for the right reasons. I am against oil period; my enviromentalistic side coming out. We must never forget our troops...this is 1965 anymore.

thank you, here at humboldt everyone seems to think it is the sixties again, and i really hope the protesting isn't so that they can say they had a cause or were part if it just to be part of it. i am against the oil too, (i'm a wildlife major so...) but if he really is using his weapons against his own people well that is another matter entirely

I agree with you entirely. I attend a private Catholic highschool, and me being for the war, my views differ from the majority of the school...I believe in the honor and pride of this nation's military so much. My math teacher yesterday said that the only reason anyone enlists in the US military is to get money and I was so furious. It's a time like this that our troops fighting need our support not criticism.

eh it's not so much that I have an overflowing militaristic pride for our country, it's that I believe war sometimes is the answer. However should a country comit itself to an all out war then the people at home should not suddenly begin to agree with the war but rather avoid doing anything that might jepordize the troops. I remember in Vietnam when my father was getting blown up people at home rallied against the war and the government simply gave up on them. Once the decision is made it cannot be undone.

There is a very interesting essay entitled "War is the health of the state" by H.L. Menken (I think) and it's supposed to be a parody. However the essay speaks as a testement to anyones point of view. War can either accomplish everything or it can accomplish nothing. It all depends on the motives.

I hope our motives are genuine and good. Then again I have a more isolationistic point of view towards foreign policy that envisions withdrawing the military from most parts of the world.... But I won't get into that.

best
Jonathan

yeah I believe the same, that there is a time for trying to work things out but that sometimes war is the answer. My military pride comes from having several family members serving(not currently, though). I have a deep admiration for any person who will do what most people in our military will do...

that essay sounds really interesting. I think I might try and find it somewhere...

I'm not sure anyone is really for the war, as for removing S. Hussein.

I am with you, I wish this would just end, unfortunatly I think we're a ways for that.
