War on perspective...

A lot of things should have been said and linked till now, but sometimes you find refreshing ways to put points of view about this war.A lot of things should have been said and linked till now, but sometimes you find refreshing ways to put points of view about this war.

Terry Jones , from Monty Python, wrote some letters to the London Observer on this themes. This letter in special could the the start of a revolution (is right with Bush did? could we all do the same? this put a bit of perspective on things), but there is more from here to here. All of this is in fact previous to the start of the war, wonder what he could be thinking now, but as a friend send me the link just today, well, I wanted to share my fun .)

More locally for my country (.uy=Uruguay, and don't bring back that old Simsons joke :), when the war started a newspaper here put in their frontpage in big letters "Hitler invades Iraq". I'm not exactly friend of this newspaper, not want to defend it, but, well, this title make the day for a lot of people here. The same day or the next a letter from the American Embassy was made public complaining "a bit" on this newspaper, and a few days ago the newspaper published the editor's response (sorry, in spanish, babelfish and google refused to fully translate it) to the letter, fundamenting why he thinks on Bush in such terms. Is a bit excesive and shows the way of thinking that I hate about the newspaper, but for one time I agree with most of what he says.
