Gettin' Bitter with it

Hey everybody. Long time no speaky speaky. Life's busy, what can I say. I'm just gonna tirade for a bit, throw some opinions about, step on some toes, hope you like it.

1) Has anyone ever listened to the savage radio show? If you have I hope you realize that as intelligent as this man may attempt to sound, he's just as bad as the people and policies he attempts to speak out against. His entire argument on the show is "can't believe this moron" "he talks so slow cuz he thinks he smart" and "listen to this crap." All the while he fails to support any of his statment with hard fact in between cut audio files. I recently heard him trying to defend Mr. John Bolton on his recent nomination for UN ambassador. He was totally jacking Bolton off. This is a man that said the UN doesn't exist. When questioned as to whether, with perfect 20/20 hindsight, would he have done anything different in Rwanda, he said no becvause there was no logistical evidence supporting the fact that anything different could have been done. WHAT?! With perfect 20/20 hindsight you wouldn't have stopped a genocide?! There is a right answer to this question and it is YES! I would have attempted to alleviate the atrocious crimes of humanity felt by the people of Rwanda. YES! I would've put troops on the ground and given them the power to shoot. NO! I would not have ignored the blatant evidence that showed that mass insurrection and potential crimes against humanity were on the horizon and fast approaching.

The problem with Rwanda is a problem that America and the UN consistently argue to be against. Look to Cambodia. Look to Bosnia, Serbia, even the "rape-room" argument set forth for the recent movement into Iraq. If America and the United Nations are going to attempt to establish the precedent that we will NOT stand by while genocide occurs. That we WILL intervene and help those that cannot help themselves. That this type of behavior among nations will NOT be tolerated than how can one honestly say that with perfect 20/20 hindsight we should not have done anything differently. 1 million people, 30 days. Unfathomable.

Again we see this precendent shat upon with the recent developments in Haiti. What developments you ask? You may not know becuase America and the UN let it happen. Haiti, home to the world's worst slum (Amnesty International and the Red Cross will attest to this) which has over a million and a half people within 4 square miles located in the backyard of Aristaide's palace. Haiti, powerful men consistently put there by American and UN officials. Haiti, whose every election is controlled by murder of the oppossition. Haiti, where the people had enough and attmepted to rise up against the tyranical regime, only to be ignored by western culture. Do you research, get schooled.

We get so caught up in whether or not a person has a right to die. How much money we have to spend to drive our SUV's. We bitch and moan about Social Security and demand a governmental baby-sitter as we grow old becuase we as a nation are to irresponsible to prepare for our own financial well-being while Third world AFrica continues to deteriorate. Men continue to be placed in power based on how well they will conform to America's Idea of nation building. The World Bank looms over the head's of politicians saying do this with the loan money, pay this much back, stay in poverty, we don't care, you are of no strategic economic value to the West. And we wonder why they hate us. Our ignorance and arrogance brings our own judgement upon us. We have people like Wolfe in charge of the world bank who would rather piss on the third world than forgive debt. Bolton, a man who would rather actively disbelieve in an organization that should be (not necesarilly doing) benefiting the globe as a whole, speaking for us at the UN.

When will we change,
When will we learn,
Just in time to,
See it all come down...--Incubus
