trying to keep an open mind

Posted to Poetry and Politics




I really did try to listen carefully last night as our president appeared on national tv. I (like LR posted below) was put off by the obviousness that the entire conference was scripted.

I listened to the accusations against Saddam and found myself in total agreement. the man is a despot. yes, i believe he has weapons he is not surrendering. yes, i believe he is a liar and is just playing a game trying to win. yes, i believe he is a threat.

i guess the real question is; is he insane enough to launch an attack against the US or another country? Should we "give him more time" to cooperate? If he hasn't to this point, he probably won't.

I still don't know if all out war is the only solution our leaders should pursue. I hope it is resolved before it comes to that. I am not optimistic.
