pinions of buddy don: pandora n her box

thays a articull name of Tracing Iraq's Painful Arc, From the Past to the Future; A Professor's Life Is Bound in the Fortunes, Frustrations of His Country in todays washington post bout a perfesser in iraq. twuz writ by a feller name of anthony shadid n he tries to show how much of recent iraqi histry is illustrated by the life of a perfesser in baghdad. one of the perfessers best lines is '"The Americans have opened a Pandora's box," he said.' ye mite member bout pandoras box. twuz the ruff equivalent of eves apple: once the box wuz open (or the apple wuz et), paradise wuz ended n all the ills we know of life wuz released. as ye know, once ye take the top offn that box ye caint putt in back on innymoren ye kin unbite that apple.

so whut ills do we find? most of em wuz thar befor, but the story went bout how we wuz a'gone make em better. so far, we still caint git the elecktricity to run as well, caint git clean water to wurk as well, caint restore securty n caint even stop all the tortchur, witch ye kin read bout how thats a'goin in a articull name of Abuse Cited In 2nd Jail Operated by Iraqi Ministry; Official Says 12 Prisoners Subjected to 'Severe Torture':
An Iraqi government search of a detention center in Baghdad operated by Interior Ministry special commandos found 13 prisoners who had suffered abuse serious enough to require medical treatment, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Sunday night.

An Iraqi official with firsthand knowledge of the search said that at least 12 of the 13 prisoners had been subjected to "severe torture," including sessions of electric shock and episodes that left them with broken bones.

"Two of them showed me their nails, and they were gone," the official said on condition of anonymity because of security concerns.
now that we are trine to walk a mile in saddams moccasins, have we larnt to do thangs inny better? i real eyes the questchun is cunsidderd rong to ast, but ye gut to wonder sooner or later whuter tiz possibull to brang the kind of life we lack to folks that lacks a nuther kind.

nuther thang i half to wunder is whuther we kin do good based on deecepshun n lies. no matter how minny folks tride to splain that thay wuznt no evidents to claim saddam wuz a'wurkin together with ('had ties to' or 'was training' al qaeda) or that them iraqis had innythang to do with 9/11 (they dint -- twuz 15 saudis, one frum lebanon, one fum egypt n two frum the united arab emirates) or even that saddam wuz trine to 'purchase significant quantities of uranium from Africa,' as twuz sed in a recent state of the union address, no matter how much evidents agin the case fer war wuz presented, the case fer war wuz made on them same bogus claims. we git futher proof of that today in a la times articull name of French Told CIA of Bogus Intelligence; The foreign spy service warned the U.S. various times before the war that there was no proof Iraq sought uranium from Niger, ex-officials say:
More than a year before President Bush declared in his 2003 State of the Union speech that Iraq had tried to buy nuclear weapons material in Africa, the French spy service began repeatedly warning the CIA in secret communications that there was no evidence to support the allegation.

The previously undisclosed exchanges between the U.S. and the French, described in interviews last week by the retired chief of the French counterintelligence service and a former CIA official, came on separate occasions in 2001 and 2002.
so ye gut to wunder: is it ok to deceive (or even lie) fer a good cause? sum mite wunder whut wood jesus do? the best hint i know of cums in the third chaptur of the book of romans:
5 But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)

6 God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?

7 For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?

8 And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.

9 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;

10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

15 Their feet are swift to shed blood:

16 Destruction and misery are in their ways:

17 And the way of peace have they not known:

18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.
i kin understand lots of thangs that dont seem to make much sense – how ye kin use a equayshu lack i = i + 1, fer instunts – but i caint understand how spozedly good christchun folk kin support the invayshun of iraq or the deceptshuns (lies) used to justify it or the evil bein dun in our name with the hope thangs will cum out good. we used to cundem them communists fer claimin that the ends justify the means.

have we becum whut we hate?
