I started replying to the last entry in here but digressed...

ugh, I first saw the news of the bombing on FOX NEWS of all channels (I was flipping channels) and our resident of the white house came on talking about the "terrorists' disregard for the innocent" and all this other bullshit that just amounted to the most blatant hypocrisy I've seen in a while. Bush, what the hell would you call your murder of all those other people in Iraq???? I was so irate. And yeah, you know they're going to play this up for the post-war justification and the "Patriot" act. I think Al-Qaeda is the real-life Emmanuel Goldstein from 1984, a scapegoat on which to place all of ignorant Americans' hate. In my most cynical thoughts yesterday I was thinking that the U.S. could have been behind the bombing... something to boost the support for the now-in-question administration. Watch as the poll numbers mysteriously climb! So many things to be mad about, so much incompetency to be discussed, but it boils down to this: I wish people weren't so ignorant, too.
