Challenging the SILENCE!

Has the opposition been permanently muted? Do we just sit back and watch the endless war go on? Do we pretend it is no longer our concern? Do we become one with the warmongers? Do we watch in silence as Death rides unfettered through the streets of Iraq?

Or do we start asking the questions that no one has answered?

Not long ago, Death had some clout. Not long ago, the mounting deaths of our fighting men and women in Iraq were reported on the evening news. Not long ago we heard the totals and not long ago the numbers saddened an enraged us. As the futile and immoral war against Iraq went on, Death boldly rode roughshod over our troops with impunity. In a horridly short time, ten deaths became twenty, twenty became a hundred, and then, with much fanfare, we passed a much heralded milestone. By the closing days of the 2004 election campaign, more than one thousand American men and women had lost their lives in George Bush’s War!

Not long ago, as Death was riding high, we railed against him. Not long ago, though Death was in charge, we shook our fists in anger, and raised our voices in protest. We were half the nation, and we were loud.

As Death dealt his blows, coalition casualties didn’t seem to matter; their numbers were never of much interest. What the heck….foreigners are foreigners. But, if you listened closely, some Americans did care. Some of us loudly and consistently mourned the deaths of all who were being sacrificed in the growing quagmire. And some of us abjectly refused to look aside as Death continued riding high.

Iraqi deaths didn’t really matter, either – a thousand here, a thousand there, what the heck. You couldn’t tell an insurgent from a terrorist, anyway. But, in truth, some of us really did care. We sought after the numbers, and we asked to see the photos, and we were terribly troubled by what we learned. But they had stopped counting the dead civilians long before…. it wasn’t a very good statistic for the Bush image. So time went on, and Death went on. And just his month, he took full advantage of it all. Death went on a rampage and rode into Fallujah.

And then, and then….and then came the Darkness and the Silence....

Challenging the SILENCE!

Where the HELL is the Opposition?
