We are all infidels

Mills of the gods

A grocer in Iraq was killed yesterday while trying to recover a girl's head. The head had been booby trapped and when it was touched, a bomb went off, killing the grocer.No words, no matter how vile, which I could type this morning would begin to convey my revulsion at this despicable deed. No degree of fury I could sum up would be sufficent to convey the hatred I feel for the perpetrators of this unspeakable act.
No motive could possibly be worth this type of cowardice. No punisment, no matter how grizzly, could repay the monster behind this. It is true that Iraq has been brought to this state by a series of events involving Western Imperialism, Manical National Leadership, and perverted religious fundamentalism. But blaming the British or America values or Sadma Hussein or the battle between two factions of Islam is never going to be good enough. No matter how foolish Bush's decision to enter this war was, and it was unspeakably foolish, no one can blame him for this type of monstorus act. There is evil in the world, pure and simple. It springs from the selfishness of the individual and is often fed by group resentment and hatred.It makes me ashamed to be human.
