Bush makes it to 3rd Bass

Thursday, June 07, 2007
Read this when I checked my usual news sites this morning...

"The United States and our allies believe that North Korea should refrain from testing missiles," said Johndroe..."North Korea should focus on the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and fulfil its obligations under the February 13 agreement. This kind of activity is not constructive."

Why is it that the US and it's allies are allowed to have weapons (including missiles with nuclear capability) but North Korea (or Iran/Iraq for that matter)? Is this planet turning into a dictatorship under the thumb of the US?

It seems to be US policy (and the rest of the world, including the UN is supporting it) that only they and their allies are allowed to have weapons of any kind. If you’re not towing the American’s line, then you had better forget about trying to militarise. Why is no one standing up to the US?

Speaking of weapons…remember the reasons for invading Iraq in the first place? To find weapons of mass destruction (WMD), searching for the Al-Qaeda terrorists that were supposedly hiding there, and…oh yes, nabbing Saddam Hussein. Another fine example of the US’s idea of not allowing any one else to gain power through military action. But wait…don’t the Americans have WMD? There’s plenty of evidence to suggest they do, and the certainly have the technological capacity to create them. Why hasn’t the rest of the world invaded the US to destroy their weapons and take away their ability to make WMDs? Hmmm? A little hypocritical of the US if you ask me but then again, my little voice doesn’t mean anything. If the US isn’t afraid of retaliation by the Russians (“I said Vladimir…I call him Vladimir…”), why should anyone care what I have to say on the subject. Frankly it worried more about living so close the United States and what might eventually happen to them when the rest of the world gangs up to seek retribution, than I am about the possibility of Iran or North Korea testing a few surface to air/surface to ship missiles.

Remember the days when we didn’t know what was going on at this precise moment in time anywhere in the world? There’s a reason they called them the “good ole days”. As with the weeks following 9/11, I find myself getting very tired, disheartened, saddened, and a number of other emotions I have trouble describing at this time. I want it to all go away and return to the happy times of childhood when all we cared about was whether or not we would get peanut butter or tuna fish for lunch and if Susie down the street could come out and play. Maybe if I immerse myself in the good times of old school hip hop videos, I’ll be able to ignore everything else… think it will work?



Damn that white boy can dance. Grrrrr….yummy. I still don’t remember them from back in ‘tha day but whatever. Fun to watch and doesn’t make me think of an imminent nuclear holocaust…

Last 3rd Bass video for the next little while…promise! That doesn’t mean I’m stopping the Friday Tom Jones videos though.

Just be thankful it's not an update on Paris Hilton and her ongoing prison saga....her VERY early release has me steamed!!! Must calm down...relax...think of something else...Pop....Pop....Pop Goes the Weasel....aaaahhhhhhhhhh.

I have been making that very point for ages now. Along with: why embargo Cuba but have billion dollar trade agreements with China? US foreign policy is rife imperialistic intimidation tactics that benefit NO ONE BUT THEMSELVES. Bottom line.

While I don't particularly want North Korean holding nukes, it is frightening to know who is holding the power in the world, and has been for a long time.

If only we could dance those thoughts away.
