05/05/2004 Entry: "The future"

Someday we'll look back... and it will be just as bad

"It seems gloomily possible that in years to come, when people in the Middle East recall the invasion of Iraq, they will speak not of lost American lives or the toppling of a brutal dictator. The most enduring image of the occupation may be those pictures of grinning American soldiers torturing Iraqi prisoners. This is the kind of outcome no one wanted, although one that the Bush administration should have worried about long ago, and taken far more care to avert. Now all the president and his top officials can do is clean up the mess and express the country's deep regrets. So far, they have accomplished neither."
The Torture Photos, NY Times, May 5, 2004

The most enduring image of the occupation may be those pictures of grinning American soldiers torturing Iraqi prisoners.

Yeah, well, that and the little boy with his arms blown off. And 1.5 million in London protesting against this war before it started. And nighttime photos of "shock and fucking awe". And the smashed up cases in the Baghdad museum. And Saddam Hussein's dental exam. That's what I'll remember. Oh, and Mission fucking Accomplished.

Does anyone else remember how peaceful Iraq was in 2000? It seems like waking compared to the nightmare we have there now.

I don't see how I can ever be proud of being an American again. It's not the torture photos, it's everything since they stopped the recount on December 12, 2000.

The terrorists have won and they used our own so-called government to do so.

I really want Kerry to be president, like right now, because he can only be an improvement and I can stop cringing every time I think about what we have now in the White House.
