Response to Massacre at Fallujah

"A poem we learned in school concerning our own history could be easily identifiable to any Iraqie fighting for his freedom.

They have raised our proudest castles

Spoilt the temples of the lord

Burnt to dust the sacred relics

Put the peaceful to the sword

Desecrated all things holy

As they soon may do again

If today their power we smite not

If today we be not men."

Wonderful sentiment Michael and as you say. it fits the Iraqi situation so well. I am reminded of the luting of the artifacts and the destruction not only of a culture, but the sure efforts to destroy a people. Justice seems to have fled the worlds psychic in the Bush/Blair stampede.
