They do not speak for me
The PLO says that
All Palestinians are willing
To be suicide bombers
That Israel must yield before this threat.
But I see the faces on TV,
See the horror and smoke and death,
And I know they must be lying.
There has to be someone,
One man - just one! -
A Palestinian who says,
"You do not speak for me.
There has been enough death.
You do not speak for me."
There has to be that one man - just one!
If there isn't, we are damned.
I really, really hate the world right now
Goddamnit. Poor damn Israelis. They try to retaliate to terrorists attacks, it doesn't work. They try turning the other cheek, that doesn't work. You know there was another attack today? Yah, some sort of passover service. 15 people dead, more probably going to die. Some suicide bomber snuck in dressed as a Red Crescent worker - their version of the Red Cross.
What the hell can they do for peace now? The Israelis can't give the Palestinians all of what they want. Some of it, yes - but they need that buffer zone!
You want to know what I think? Well, you wouldn't be here if you didn't, so I'll tell you: I think this crap is just going to keep going on until someone pushes the button - decided to lob a tactical nuke into a Palestinian camp or city. And then...and then things will get worse.
For those of you not in Israel right now, who are safe and happy with your families - happy Passover. May you stay safe and happy.
And to those who are in Israel right now: Good luck, and I hope you can somehow have a happy passover.
Sophie's World CDROM game now abandonware
Just thought I'd mention that www.the-underdogs.org now has Sophie's World available for download. It's a very nice philosphy edutainment game, with a comprehensive reference thrown in. I'll download it as soon as I get cable internet access. :-)
www.fas.org has a truly disturbing amount of information on nuclear weapons, nerve gas, and biological weapons. Also tactical and strategic doctrines for a large number of countries. I used it for my physics paper. Now I cannot sleep. READ WITH CAUTION.
Hi, new viewer!
Oh dear. What have I done? What have I done?
A few minutes ago, I actually told someone about this journal. A friend.
Now one knows. And if she tells one person, and that person tells just one more - just one, mind you, just one - then soon many will know.
People in my school. Other friends. This is a bad thing. And the worst part is, I was told - I was warned that telling friends about an online journal can be dangerous. But did I listen? No, of course not.
Sometimes, I worry myself with my own foolishness.
Nukes! Huh? What are they good for?
For my physics thesis paper, I am writing about the way the threat of Mutually Assured Destruction has acted as a moderating force on international relations in the twentieth century. I don't want to do like that kid way back when who used Ask Slashdot to try to do his homework for him, but I would be interesting in any thoughts or resources you could suggest.
