International Day of Peace

"Peace One Day has successfully driven the initiative to establish the United Nations International Day of Peace as a day of global ceasefire and non-violence, now fixed in the calendar as 21st September from 2002."

Peace One Day has been set up to as another attempt to drive global peace. OK it's only symbolic but it does make you stop and think. If we can manage to stop dropping bombs on each other for 24 hours, maybe we could manage it for 48, or 72 or........ Given all the coverage of 9-11 and "one year on", it seems strange that more attention hasn't been given to Peace Day. Ah, I know, it's cos Bush doesn't really want peace. He wants a nice big war with Saddam, or anyone else, killed so he can win another election. Of course! Silly me. Well maybe he better get his act together cos until he actually works out how he's going to achieve all of this, he's on his own...and we know what that means...not a hope!

Plus of course, most of the US doesn't seem to want peace either....if anyone else tells me that "we" should be out there dropping bombs on "strange" countries, I shall scream. Yeah, drop nuclear weapons on Afghanistan, or wherever else, and wipe out most of your allies at the same time. Great. Look at your foreign policy and get a grip. People will hate me for this but you've been asking for this for years. And if you really thought you were immune, you're living in a dream world. You've just been lucky that you're so far away. Get over it. The rest of us have had to.

Hmmm...shoulrd probably calm down now.....get too annoyed with the stupidity that surrounds me!!! Oh well, let's see if the radio stations can at least play Dave Stewart at noon...
