So many terms are abused these days, I pity all those once respected and meaningful words that have now become cliché and worthless. You know of them, consult any media source and they’re staring back at you: freedom, war, ideology, barbaric, etc. The only thing worse than seeing all the despair of the past days, is hearing all the manipulative and worthless speeches spouted by so-called leaders.
The biggest irony or simply wierd factor in all this, is how shocked some are. War on terror… war on terror… you hear it all the time.. over and over… yet somehow this so-called war doesn’t involve many war-like situations for the people involved. Thats right, I mean regular people who’s tax money and who’s vote play a role in the waging of war in different corners of the world. They are as innocent as the people who were/are bombed in Iraq, or anywhere. Yet those types of tragedies are considered normal, we expect a few to die, daily, in the middle east, but when it’s in London- its tragic.
Oh the bizarre double standard. You’re at war, but you live like you’re not. And then something happens like this, and it’s shocking.
