It`s a fuck of a thing, having children. Mine are almost grown up, but yeah, I will always worry and think about them.
I was blessed with two lovely daughters, even though I`m probably not the best dad, they have stuck with life, and are now both working and enjoying the world and its` treasures.
The early years are always a struggle, wondering how they will do at school, or if they will turn out "O.K.".
Worrying if perhaps they will develop anomalities, always worrying about accidents or disease.
For many parents in Iraq, there is no such worry, they know, at the moment of birth, that their precious child is cursed to a life of pain and suffering.
And all because the Brits and Americans wanted to use depleted uranium.
Our goverments tell us we are civilised and progressive, that they exist only to protect us. What an absolute crock of bullshit.
Ah well, it is said that the soldiers themselves, as a result of their exposure to DU, are just as likely to father deformed children.
Poetic justice perhaps, but of no comfort to the children.
What the fuck are we doing, letting scumbags manufacture weapons like these?
Just who are the assholes who work in the factories making these bombs? What kind of sick retarded fuckwit claims that manufacturing weapons is a job? It isn`t a job you silly cunt, it is a conspiracy to terrorise a civilian population.
War is stupid, manufacturing weapons is plain ignorant.
Walk away from war, walk away from the factories of war.

Some people pray for peace, some march for peace.
Some write letters, or telephone politicians, others refuse to pay taxes.
Some brave arrest and imprisonment to heckle the militaries.
Was it Aristotle who said that any fool can get angry, but to use the right amount of anger, at the right time, in an appropriate place, ..that is more difficult.
"Freeway Blogging", is so far an american idea. Respect these guys!
Just as interesting is the fact that CBS has chosen to show the clip, and its` all too obvious implications.
Notice that the newscaster doesn`t call the protesters "nutjobs", nor does he call into question, the subject of their blog, "9/11= inside job".
The truth is that peace sometimes requires an effort, the freeway bloggers made that effort.
Fight for peace, fight, at the right time, in the right place, with the right weapon.
But we have to fight.
