Funny shit, I seriously think a lot of Americans are fucked in the head.

What a fuckin joke, Jesus, how fucked do you have to be to actually believe that. First of all, you have to be a stupid ignorant dumbass shit face cock sucker, and secondly you have to be pretty damn arrogant.

of what i said earlier; apparently only in toronto do we not feel the war because apparently, everyone else has people close to them fighting in this. yesterday on cnn i saw a family talking about how they can't sleep anymore because their son is in one of the infantry divisions and they can watch his every move on television and how they can't take their eyes off of the tv anymore because they're afraid that he won't be there in the morning.
that's war.

in the old days, months would go by, and you might get a letter saying that your son is missing. that they're searching for private ryan. now you can actually watch him die on tv. in real time.

etheral: i asked that very same question to mom almost a year and a half ago after the whole september 11th debacle began. the answer i got was that terrorism is when you deliberately target civilians.
obviously, the israelis are guilty of terrorism themselves *but* once again. the U.S. rules the world. and in case no one has noticed, the jews rule the U.S., and therefore, the palestinians are called terrorists and the israels are simply "defending their land"

Riddle me this...

When is an act considered "Terrorism". The crashing of planes into the World Trades towers was considered terrorism, yet dropping 2000 cruise missles on various buildings is not. What defines terrorism? Is it if you declare it, then it's no longer terrorism? The Isreali army goes in and bombs/bulldozes/shoots hundreds of Palastinians. That's not terrorism, yet if a palastinian suicide bombs a few Isreali's, then that's considered terrorism. Someone please explain, I really want to know.

Bush to rule the world!

Saddam isn't the only "evil" dictator around. After Iraq, Bush should go around the globe and wage war on any and all countries with "evil" dictators. North Korea, Sierra Leone, Iran, Lybia, Egypt, most of the African Countries.. the U.S? I don't applaud Bush at all. If he followed his troops into war, if he was the first man to rush into Iraq, then I would applaud him. But he sits in Camp David and sends out the American youth to go fight his war. Fuckin coward. The kings back in the day charged into combat with his army. That would ensure that they wouldn't be waging a war for reasons other than to enforce something they really believed in. Not for fuckin oil, Bush would piss his pants if he had to step foot in Iraq.

But seriously, you know Basra? The Americans thought they were going to be welcomed when they got there, but what happened? The Iraqi's tried to repel them. Why? I honestly cannot say. If you were going to be liberated, would you fight your "saviours"? Think of the Iraqi army, they have brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers like the rest of us. When they die, their families will be in mourning indefinately. Is it right to bomb the shit out of them just to get Saddam out of power? Do you know why Saddam is in power?? THE AMERICANS PUT HIM THERE. THE AMERICANS MADE SADDAM, THE AMERICANS GAVE IRAQ THEIR WEAPONS. And now they are seen as Hero's because they are undoing their own work. Blah

Belated B-days Blog, Bolded

Happy belated to Stew, who celebrated last Friday.
It was a fun night for.... most. If you were there, you probably know who wasn't enjoying the night from the porcelain altar. Stew got good and plastered, including downing some Mescal (imagine underdistilled Tequila, with a worm inside to absorb all the additional toxins) and some of the Fortounas family moonshine. He denies being drunk at the time, despite just having awoke from downing all the other liquor that was practically force-fed to him.

Sunday was hockey. A good game, though the majority of us were a bit out of shape, and the fact that by the time we finished, we couldn't see the ball until it was too late to avoid it. I'm sure my knuckle would be bruised or swollen if there were something there other than skin and bone, but that shot I took to the leg has created some weird, solid formation just above my knee. Kind of like a muscular knot,... but not. Weird.

And yesterday, upon extrememly short notice, some of us got together to celebrate Ephraim's birthday. How? With liquor.
Me, Randy, Stew, Jeff, Noel (a tenant at Ephraim's) and the birthday boy headed over to Q's billiards and bar. When the waitress came up to us, Randy proceeded to order.
3 Tequila shots
2 B-52s
2 Lemon Drops
and some drink where you drop the shot into the beer and chug
I may be forgetting one, but on top of that we (Ephraim) got two free Broken Down Golf Carts from the waitress, as well as a Guinness from the bar. He made it home okay, but we don't know anything beyond that. Let's just say that tilting his head was humorous to him.

What a week...

From the dead

I've been lazy lately, and that's why I haven't posted.
Not to mention the fact that last Monday I was afflicted with Norwalk virus, which most of you know by now. If you didn't know, now you do, but I'm all better now. Now if only someone could do something about that sick feeling I get whenever I get to work... without taking away my $ source, of course.
Crazy thing to wake up into from extreme illness. War, I mean. Now, I don't wanna take any heat about it from all of you, but I applaud what Bush has done. I don't applaud the fact that he's gone to war, but the fact that he's done something, despite all of the people around the world who're protesting, and countries preventing UN action. I've heard alot of information from both sides of the coin, and even though he may be doing it for "the wrong reason" (being oil), he is attempting to depose a dictator in the process.
So far, all that most people have done is bash Bush and the US for doing what no one else would do. It sure is easy to march around and protest war, but if any of those people went around causing a ruckus saying "Let's depose a dictator, because he's a dangerous man, and has been for decades!" those people would probably get lynched before crossing the street.
It's easy to get away with extreme actions and vandalism when it's all in the name of peace... or whatever other ideal everyone believes in.

And as for France (and the other Nations, but I'll focus on France for non-specific reasons), why is it they oppose war so adamantly? It's not like they've always been a peace-loving country... remember its history with its good buddy England? Even though Al-Samoud2 missiles were consistently found to be breaching UN codes, true it's not a blatant smoking gun, but it's something that should cause you to do a hell of a lot more than say 'Give the weapons inspectors more time.' The existence of those missiles is a sign that something more needs to be done, not necessarily go to war, but something more. I mean, those weapons were consistently exceeding the maximum distance allowed. It's not like there were just a few that had too much propellant.
As I said, I've heard alot of information, and who knows if any of it's reliable nowadays with propaganda running rampant, but I've heard comments that the reason France, Germany and Russia were so adamant in the beginning, without listening to any sort of reason or evidence, is because they were receiving oil from Iraq. Not as a compensatory bribe, but as a normal thing, and they didn't want that to be interrupted or affected by a war that they could have prevented -- referring to the UN sanctioned war that was disapproved.

Man, I hate politics and war, but I'll say it again: good job Bush, you did something other than jack-all. Whether the war is "right" or "wrong" will depend on whether weapons of mass destruction are legitimately found in Iraq's possession.
But either way, the way things are going, Saddam will be deposed, and if Candian citizens -- Iraqi immigrants who lived in the Gulf war -- have anything to say about it, alot of them have said things along the lines of "Thank you Mr. Bush, finally."
Who do you think the fool will be when this is all done: Bush, or France?
Damn, i'm done ranting about war.
Fuck this, I'm going to lunch.
I'll post again about the past two weeks when I get back. Got some b-days to hand out.

What if SARS is a terrorist attack? Just a thought, but no one is going to search Hong Kong for terrorists, so they might have spread the virus there, and now it's all over the world. If not, that would have been pretty clever huh? It's getting kinda freaky, people in Scarborough are starting to get it, maybe I should stay home from work. Seriously, what's a day of work to getting a potentially fatal disease? Makes no sense to me. I wonder if people in Iraq are suffering from SARS? Maybe Saddam Hussein has it! Well, one can only hope.

Not so plain...

Which begs the question, is war the only way to eliminate Saddam? I guess we'll never know.

In Plain Sight

It's easy to see this now. Both sides of war are both wrong and right. The US really shouldn't destablized the Arab nations even further, but then again Saddam is a manic that has to be stopped. It's clear that this is a shit aweful position for the people of iraq. Choose the red pill and you get saddam 4 life. Choose the blue pill and you get the US. Personally, i though about this situation carefully and i've realized that there is no right choice. If i were iraqi i'd be afraid of both Saddam and Bush because they are both off their prospective rockers.

This is how it is.
War is bad
Saddam is nuts and he should be removed from power
We should go free Iraq
but war is bad.
If we don't go to war, saddam lives
but Saddam is nuts and he should be removed from power

If you ask me there is no choice here but a bad one. As per usual, i choose to form no opinion and not take sides anymore, because both choices are bad.

In regards to Etheral's post "Michael Moore!!"

Yeah, if Mel was like Saddam and the US threatened to bomb us to high heaven, I'd be afraid too. But, I'd rather have someone trying to liberate us rather than living in fear for my entire life living with members of the Lastman family constantly murdering civilians, building statues and murals of themselves, or chasing protesters down with armed helicopters. Iraq will never prosper and be free as long as Saddam's in power. Period.

Michael Moore!!

Michael Moore is great, I'm gonna watch Bowling for Columbine just beause of his speach. The Academy awards is the only place that he could have gotten his point across. What do you expect him to do, hold a press conference? Who the heck would show up?

Anyways, I agree with you that we don't really feel the effects of war. People in North America who are Pro War don't really know what war is like, it's sort of like playing a video game for us, whatever happens doesn't effect us. If on the other hand the war was going to be waged in North America, I wonder how many people would still be Pro War. Knowing that any second now, a bomb could fall out of the sky and kill your whole family, or fall out of the sky and kill all of your friends, or destroy your neighbourhood, or cripple you for life. That's what the people in Baghdad are going through. When that happens, then we should re-evaluate what everyone thinks about war. The people in Baghdad are living in constant fear, a fear that's been brought to them by your friendly neighbourhood Americans.

If Mel Lastman was a tyrant, and the US said they were going to bomb the shit out of Toronto (and the surrounding regions) and asked the world back them up, I bet you anything we'd all be shitting our pants and hoping that they don't attack us. Fact is that everyone should be against war, it's not a pleasant situation to be in.

There was a family member of a victim from 9/11 and she was protesting against the war saying that she knows what it feels like to have something drop out of the sky and kill a loved one. That's exactly what the US is doing to Baghdad right now.

i don't think i've really formed an opinion on this one yet. part of me knows that all war is bad, no matter what the objective. there's another part of me that was once surrounded by people heralded saddam as a hero and knows that there are people who love him even though he really is a horrible horrible man, he has a way of rousing nationalism that bush will never be able to do. i'm not an optimist anymore. i don't think that they'll be able to get rid of him this time either. and if they somehow manage to, it'll be at a price too high for us to pay.
i'm really not feeling the effects of this war like i did the last time around. when we turned our basement into a quasi bomb-shelter. and we taped all our windows down. and most of the people at my school were evacuated.
that felt like war.
this just feels like nothing. complete normality, other than the fact that when i turn on cnn, i am bombarded with talk of the "war"

anyways. i think that this is a really terrible thing. how low can anyone go?
michael moore low, that's how. the oscars weren't supposed to be a political forum. the dove pins that people were wearing weren't anti-war signs. they were just quietly stating that they were "pro peace" and that is what it should have been left at.
there is a time and a place for everything, and a ceremony honouring excellence in art is not the place nor the time to slam your president.
that is just shameful.

anyways. that my $0.02 from a standpoint that only god knows where is.

Blogging from Iraq?

Check this site out, some guy is Baghdad is recording the events of the war as they unfold on a blogger site. Apparently Blogger was down cuz so many people were visiting this guys site.

Yeah, you're right about Saddam being a butcher, he's crazy, plain and simple and he should be taken out, but at what cost? It's sort of like justifying murder I guess. Check this out.

Syrian officials said the dead were among 37 passengers on a bus about 100 miles south of the Iraq-Syrian border, which was hit by a U.S. missile Monday". At the Pentagon, Maj. Gen. Stanley McChrystal said the raid's intended target was a bridge, and that the bus came into view only after a bomb had been released. "This is a pure act of savagery, an outrageous and unjustifiable attack on innocent civilians," said a Syrian government official. The Syrian government also told CNN that there were no "justifiable targets" in the area where the bus was hit.

Hi everyone! It's been awhile since I've posted...hmm

Anyways, been reading the last few posts on Polaris, and I thought that I should comment on the US operation known as Operation: Iraqi Freedom. I support coalition forces entering Iraq.

Yeah, I said it.

Saddam is a butcher, plain and simple. Yeah, people prostest about the war, but personally, if they took down Saddam, I wouldn't shed any tears for him. It's hard to believe that we still live in a time where dictatorships are still exist...

It's time to (as wesley willis would put it) "rock saddam hussein's ass".
