Iraq as Metaphor for Life

Today on TV news they had pictures of the two American soldiers killed execution style in Iraq. The war in Iraq is a metaphor for the world that is being created. The new world is where any pretense to justice and kindness has become passe and silly.

The fact is that our nation and the world is careening towards the world that Iraq represents- Iraq is the metaphor.

The world has always been cruel and venial. But I think allot of us thought with technology and knowledge it would be better, that we would have progress. But that is not what we have. A new world is being created and it is violent and cruel and so the terrorists kill our soldiers and we kill them and nothing changes and nothing changes and we wonder about violence and none are innocent.
