17/50 - Bush's War

Today was a day of lots of words. Written words, silent in the reading, voiced in the mind, heartfelt, angry, resigned, saddened by a world too big to grab hold of, too rough to smooth, too mean to reason with.

On the TV tonight there were more words, speaking in detached, documentary form about Bush’s War: How it was started, the criminal ignorance with which it was waged by a leadership which had no clue, the arrogance of men without souls, high on power, exhilarating in breaking and destroying and beating and killing and all because …

… they could.
