no time recently to do much of anything outside of work (of course, i've overcome these time constraints by not sleeping - weee). lotsa early morning meetings. was able to hang with some good friends though, saw Smokin' Aces
with two awesome ladies, Sun's Sis
. it's really good, Piven was fricking AMAZING (as was everyone else). also was taught the foxtrot by the graceful Maestra
- forgot how much i less than three dancing (in direct opposition to my skill). when i have time, will expound on both further
but first, i've been trying to write a succinct declaration of my stance on the situation in Iraq, in terms of military occupation and administrative activity. here's what i have so far, what do y'all think:
The path to peace, not only in the Middle East but across the world, does not lie in military superiority or self-righteous declarations, but in building a pattern of problem solving through local and global unity. If the intention of the force in Iraq was to truly unify the region and not to disseminate the ideals of a nationalistic, expansionistic policy, I would support the occupation. But, as I believe the current administration has repeatedly made foreign policy decisions which do not build a progressive policy toward peace, I can neither condone nor support their military actions in Iraq.
it's supposed to be more of a mission statement than a solution, something to solution around. it sounds so hollow and pretentious, that's not my intention. ¿thoughts?
