The Haus

Saturday, October 13, 2001


Was surfing around checking the news today, and I saw a picture over on Yahoo! News of a woman protesting the bombing of Afghanistan. She was carrying a sign that read "Fund Schools of Education, not Weapons of Destruction" -- and behind her is a man carrying a "Peace Now" sign.

This kind of peace, love, understanding attitude really bothers me considering the situation. The terrorists that extinguished 5,000+ lives are not worthy of America to fight? Come ON people. These people would change their tune as soon as some airplane carrying their children augering into a building-it wouldn't be the people in the building they'd give two s$!ts about, however. Just their own narrow self-interest.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight: nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety: is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions and blood of better men than himself.
-- John Stuart Mill
A.T. Hun comments: Some people's complete and willful ignorance of the world around them never fails to astound me. The scary thing is that they actually believe we would do nothing and offer bin Laden a great big hug, everything would be all better. They have the freedom of speech in our country to say whatever they would like. I'm thankful for that. But I also have the freedom to point out that they are idiots.
