Bush’s War is thirteen years old and counting. It is increasingly evident that none of the participants in this expanding global tragedy knows how, nor it seems, has anyone the will, to put an end to war.
Children born in the Middle East and children born in the United States at the time of our ill advised incursion into the affairs of a foreign country are now about thirteen years old. They know of no time of no war.
In just a few years many of our children and those children of several middle eastern countries’ parents will be confronting and killing each other for whatever justification they have been given to believe.
Furthermore, children born today of parents from both continents will be in line in twenty years or so to commence and further perpetuate the slaughter of each other. Et sic etiam pergit. So it goes.
Thus will put in place the next Hundred Years War. Who among us would believe this cannot and will not happen?
