4. I expect to nod along with it

I was so furious during this time, there was so much information available, and yet people cheered shock and awe - never thinking about the Iraqis that dies, the infrastructure destroyed and lives thrown into chaos from a relatively civilized area - that my blood pressure sky rocketed and I was put on no news watching or olitics for several years and had to leave this board until just a few years ago.

My blood pressure is under control now, I just wish I could force some people to watch this show. I expect them to live in their Fox news world and never see it or hear of it though.

5. I know how you felt, you were not alone. But now we have apparently accepted

these wars as par for the course, and even here on this Dem board, which NEVER would have happened back then, there are people who defend them.

I am sorry about your BP and glad you are okay. People who care about others, about human life, seem rare in this society and I for one, appreciate them when I meet them. Maybe in the future there will be more, but even people I know and respect seem strangely disconnected from the brutal actions against innocent people by their own government.
