You can't force social change with bombs and bullets.
Yes, you can. Well, sort of. For it IS true that even during the 1960's PEACE MARCHES of the Civil Rights Movement... bombs... and bullets... were used. Just not by those who were FOR social change.
Peace (truthfully) to you!
A slave of Christ,
SJ, who is still trying to figure out WHY:
1. If the events of 9/11 is the 'gist' of this whole thing, as many, including some here, wish to claim, Iraq, which is NOT allied with Al-Qaieda, is the target of war, versus Pakistan (oh, and some rich folks in Texas), which is at least "anti-US"... and
2. If terrorism is such a threat, since the events of Oklahoma, in which BABIES were killed, domestic militias are not targeted for disarmament, but are allowed to keep and "bear arms", pursuant to the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution, but foreign countries, which have their OWN people to protect and OWN form of rules/regs are threatened to "bow down" to rules "we" don't even enforce on our own... and
3. "We" assume that ALL citizens of certain foreign countries dislike their governments and so should be helped to overthrow them, but PLEASE GOD... don't let 'em want to leave that country and come over here to live...
4. Especially in light of this country's very... ummmm... "special" history, wherein just about a 100 years ago, a major faction of the population (aka former black slaves living under "Jim Crow" laws... and poor whites) disliked THEIR "government", but no other country made it their business to come over here and overthrow Uncle Sam...
But then, pardon me, for who am I to open and my eyes and ears and PAY ATTENTION to the FACTS... versus making a rather poor judgment call against people I don't even know and who don't know me or wish me any ill-will...
