War and Rumors of War...

Posted to Poetry and Politics




As distasteful and horrifying war is and has been it is not the biggest threat to those we perceive as innocent men, women and children...those blameless and removed from the politics of governments. The real threat to innocent people in the world are the natural disasters that kill more people than all the wars combined. Right now a huge famine rages in Africa, children are dying every day of hunger and the ravenges of AIDS but it doesn't play well in the media. It is not as flashy or doesn't involve people we can relate to, involves no conspiracy theories, no gain, hence millions die every year without much notice from the developed world. As this war plays out on TV and people show their indignation and fear and terror...in the meantime 'innocents' still suffer without much notice or care...and so it goes...
