64. Yeah I am Disturbed
Edited on Sat May-29-04 06:59 AM by Disturbed
As a Green Party member, I know that the USA cannot survive 4 more years of Bushco. I would prefer Kucinich to J. Kerry or Nadar. The compromise has to be J. Kerry. I don't hold much cheery hope for his Admin. but the alternative is way to depressing. Damn, why can't we have a true multi-party system? Yeah, wishful thinking.

I don't believe that the USA will be able to avoid being attacked by a terrorist group. Whatever they call themselves.

I sure would have liked to have seen the definitive proof that it was Osama and Al Q. that attacked on 911. Why no proof provided, indeed? Powel, that disgrace of a person, was supposed to deliver documentation of proof but never did.

The Taliban are scum but the method of the US and Allies on their invasion was bad news and it is still bad news. 3 years now and not much gain and a whole lot of pain for those poor masses in Afghanistan. It is an irony that Afghanistan could be a well off country because they have trillions of dollars of natural gas. Then there is that possible pipeline. Seems that the US and other Western countries don't know how to deal with this other than greedy exploitation.

I don't have answers but dream that billions of dollars could perhaps be used more wisely than killing, torturing people and destroying property. Extremists groups usually cannot be bought off so I am not suggesting that but taking away some of their rationale for their support could help. Can the USA figure out a way to survive without the present methods? I know that there are people that have solutions
that are better than what has been tried so far.
