Towards A Good Samaritan World

Saturday, November 06, 2004


Just saw this film last night. It was one of the most uplifting things I've ever seen. It's strange: there are sad stories, a woman weeping because her son was killed, there's even a man who wishes Saddam's regime was back (though a man who shouts "Now is better than under Saddam even if we die of hunger!" was more typical); yet somehow you just understand the joy of freedom, the joy of living, and how it transcends all the other troubles. So much joy. So much pride.

The war in Iraq is the most exhilarating event in my lifetime. Or anyway since the fall of communism. I despise the mainstream media. It makes me sick that pro-Saddam protests took place in Europe. Bush is a hero. I wish I was a Marine in 2003. SEE THIS FILM.


  • There is indeed hope. The Washington Post has articles today on Kofi Anan's attempt to stop the imminent attacks on the Sunni strongholds, and now a proposal by a Sunni coalition to drop their resistance and participate in elections if some of their conditions can be met.

    It seems as if things might be opening up. We have the start of voting registration, and now this. Maybe the reports of a successful election in Afghanistan are helping to shift the dialogue? In any case, the only way I can see it is that the Bush administration's determination to stand firm is slowly producing an environment more favorable to representative government in Iraq.
