Eyes to See/Ears to Hear

In order to combat my annoyance over the unwillingness of media outlets to tell the truth and avoid letting their bias rule, as well as to have an outlet for my very (at times) wordy self, this blog has been created by yours truly. This will be an accounting of events in the world, my country, and my little piece of the world as best as I can see it, hear it, and relay it.

Iraq's Elections

While plenty of supposedly anti-war people chant and demonstrate all over the globe, the Iraqi people continue to fight off those who seek to terrorize them into submitting to an oppressed Iraq once again. It really matters not what name and face they give the attacks on this country known as Iraq, but a free Iraq means much more to the Iraqi people than we comfy and cozy free peoples can even imagine. In the middle of all the terror and the homicide bomber attacks, the people move on towards the deadline for their elections, the first ever, and so desperately desired by the citizens of this country.

A long time ago John Lennon wrote these lyrics to a song: power to the people...
Does anyone have any idea what that means to people who have constantly and continually had someone else wielding power over them and their families? To do what someone said for fear of your family being slaughtered? To find your family slaughtered anyway? I don't think John Lennon or any of those anti-war chanters know what it is like to live in such a way. I don't know either, but I do know this: The Iraqi people deserve our help and they are getting it, thank God.

We don't want to know the truth either, that the war in Iraq was not about WMD's, it was actually about fourteen different violations of the agreement that Saddam was supposed to abide by and did not. The media has skewered the truth and we buy it because in our hearts we don't care much for our own country, indeed we are willing to believe any and all horrible things about it, while ignoring horrible and true things about other nations, or worse, explaining theirs away. Shame on us for not researching what we believe and being parrots of someone else and their agenda.

Ask the media about Russia, France and China's illegal obtaining of money through the UN's mismanagement (and allowing of) the Oil for Food program! It is a scandal of tremendous proportions! Where is the outcry against the Russian government, the Chinese government or the French government? Why is there only teeth gnashing snarling for America's government?
Some very good questions to ask yourself.
