Desmond Telling It Straight

He's right of course but here the perpetrators have basically rewritten history. I have always liked  Desmond Tutu and I damn well bet many believers here hate his guts even though to me he is a real Believer because he lives the words. A few highlights -

Archbishop Desmond Tutu says former U.S. president George W. Bush and former British prime minister Tony Blair acted like "playground bullies" when they decided to invade Iraq in 2003, and should face trial for their actions.

This is a fact ya see but let's just forget about it as a country.

Tutu wrote "they have driven us to the edge of a precipice where we now stand - with the specter of Syria and Iran before us."

The Nobel Peace laureate asked "what should we teach our children" if it is acceptable for leaders to take "drastic action on the basis of a lie, without acknowledgement or an apology when they are found out."

If only our side would speak out but they have assisted in and are culpable as well in some ways of allowing what I feel may be the biggest act of treason ever in our country. I refuse to be part of that ever.

  1. Back home. Thanks again for your hospitality! Had a great trip. I truncated my visit to DNM a couple of days because it was simply too hot to be hiking during the daytime.

    1. I hope it was worth all the miles you drove and and that you had a safe trip.

  2. Tutu was too kind in his words.
    But, then again.
    He is a man of the cloth.
    I am not.
    W, Cheney, Blair, and all the other Neocon war mongers are criminals to no end.
    They can all go and EFF themselves as far as I am concerned.

    Out here in the West where I live we used to hang horse thieves and cattle rustlers.
    Some were even shot before they were hung.
    Then after the hanging they were shot again.
    Just to make sure.
