Two previously drafted communications were made public that day nine years ago.
One, delivered by a man professing Great Christian Beliefs, now referred to as the Mission Accomplished speech begins:
“Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the Battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed. And now our coalition is engaged in securing and reconstructing that country.
In this battle, we have fought for the cause of liberty, and for the peace of the world.”
The other, by a man the first man let be drowned in the desert, his letter (not written by a highly paid staff for a multi-million dollar press event) begins:
“My angel, my wife, my love, my friend. If you’re reading this, I won’t be coming home...”
As a Layman, unschooled in all the various intricacies of all the self-proclaimed correct interpretations of the Old Books, which today’s experts use to support positions that the path to truest love lies on the other side of abundant hate and thoughtful use of our resources requires wasting vast quantities of them – my mind wonders which of the two letters can be expected to exist in that future dimension.
The natural order of the universe is Peace. To deviate from it requires choosing to do so.
War does not exist – unless we make it.
