backdated entry from old journal

March 20, 2003: I don't really know what to say right now. It's kind of unsettling when your country goes to war and you know that no one in charge is listening to any who disagree. Oh, they say they are listening, and they say they respect the dissenting opinions... but that and a dollar will buy the dissenter a cup of coffee. There was probably never any serious hope for avoiding military action in Iraq. I think They in Washington just wanted it too badly.

Yes, believe it or not, I didn't agree that war was the necessary option. (What, little ol' liberal me?) Most of my friends didn't want the U.S. to go to war. But I've had the conversation with some of them that we must not know many people, because we don't know many people who support the war, and supposedly there are lots who do in the U.S. of A. Maybe my copy of the memo just got lost in the mail. Missed the bandwagon again.

So now it seems that the best thing I can do is just watch TV or listen to the radio (searching for unbiased reports, like a modern-day Diogenes I suppose), see what happens, and hope for the best, whatever that really is.
