how do we fix that mistake?

Posted to Poetry and Politics




in Vietnam, we "lost" but were abl;e to create friendship afterwards.....the Buddhist folk were forgiving....but I wonder how long the estranged and enraged Islamic world will take to forgive and befriend us....I do know that there are peace teams even now inside Iraq, living with Iraqis, non-violently, amazingly so, so maybe our intent is what is importamt.....go in peace and be welcomed.
I think the big mistake was seeing the "enemy" as the enemy, when they should have been our friends all along.

History repeating herself, tho it be man-made.
