War on Hussein

I was gonna do heaps of work today.. but I didn't.. I kept
on procrastinating.. couldn't motivate myself.. but i'm not
worried cos i am usually quite studious. Hmm well today
went by without any big incidents of which i might share
with you all. Oh that is of course apart from the
announcement of war. I don't want there to be war. I think
most sane people can agree with me on that. But I do
believe that Saddam husein needs to be stopped. He is a
very evil man. If everybody knew about all the stuff he's
done they would look at the war very differently... He
holds people in prisons for decades and tortures them, uses
them for super-human experiments. He bombs areas of land in
his own country which have people living in them, to test
his chemical weapons. He has killed thousands of people.
War does mean that people will die, but the truth is that
potentially millions more people would die if the rest of
the world just let him continue with the horrifying things
that he is doing. In retrospect to WW2 would anybody
disagree with me on saying that it would have been a much
smarter thing for the British to have done what Winston
Churchill initially proposed to do and have declared war on
Germany in order to remove Hitler during the 1930s?
Churchill was called a war-monger back then just as George
Bush is being called now. But the thousand-odd people who
would have died in the 30s is nothing to the 10 million-odd
ammount of people who died horrendous deaths due to Adolf
Hitlers Nazi Regime in the second World War. I am so sad
and scared for the world. I pray for peace, but I know that
Saddam Husein must be removed from his position in Iraq...
this war is going to save lives, though I know it will also
destroy many, which saddens me. I went to Worship practice
tonight. It was realy cool.. there was like this great
prayer time, I left feeling vey.. hmm spirit filled, which
is always a good thing. I've been listening to a bit of
Coldplay today. I love coldplay.. "Amsterdam" is prolly my
fav song on "a rush of blood to the head".. the lyrics make
me feel very teary. it's very romantic.. epecially the last
lines.. Here have a looksy...

Amsterdam

Come on, oh my star is fading,
And I swerve out of control,
If I, if I'd only waited,
I'd not be stuck here in this hole,
Come here, oh my star is fading,
And I swerve out of control,
And I swear, I waited and waited,
I've got to get out of this hole

But time is on your side, its on your side, now
Not pushing you down, and all around,
It's no cause for concern

Come on, oh my star is fading,
And I see no chance of release,
And I know I'm dead on the surface,
But I am screaming underneath

And time is on your side, its on your side, now
Not pushing you down, and all around,
No it's no cause for concern

Stuck on the end of this ball and chain,
And I'm on my way back down again,
Stood on the edge, tied to the noose,
Sick to the stomach
You can say what you mean,
But it won't change a thing,
I'm sick of the secrets,
Stood on the edge, tied to the noose,
And you came along and you cut me loose,
You came along and you cut me loose,
You came along and you cut me loose

-(Chris Martin, Coldplay, A Rush of Blood to the Head,
2002)
