Saudi Thoughts Still Linger

Listening to NPR the other night I was reminded that 15 of the 19 total 9/11 hijackers was Saudi. Also, that Osama Bin Laden was Saudi, by birth (until his Saudi citizenship was revoked in 1994). However, we attacked Iraq. On the pretense that they had WMD, and were linked to the 9/11 attacks. Both incorrect assumptions. We limply invaded Afghanistan and continue a half-ass effort there to this day just to look busy, while it produces 79% of the world's opium and heroin. In fact it's drug production is increasing year over year under our watch. There's no assistance from Saudi Arabia at all on any of these fronts, and didn't they light the match that started this?

I'm looking forward to the day when our kids correct this course that we're on. Of being led by people that lie. Being led by people that don't look out for humanity, not just for white people, or Christians, or Americans or oil rich relatives and country. I have hope that it'll come, but for now - we're being abused by our administration and it's just plain embarassing. I wouldn't trust Bush to feed my cat, much less decide how to run the country. History will shame him, and us, and this chapter in time. I believe in the people of America, but not the government, right now.

I agree to the fullest extent fuck Bush i voted for Gore anyway the only way we can fix this mess is through ourselves how can we invade someone else's country we are not even up to par at home. Now innocent people are dying Americans and Iraqs because of pure ignorance, ego, and greed.
