i have asked this before and not provided an answer. profundity is really a teacher who just talks a lot, it's up to you to ask the hard questions and then furthermore, demand an answer.
if war is not the answer, who keeps asking the same stupid question? we are so infinitely infantile, and that is not meant to be a cliche`. history will ultimately provide proof that we lack the foresight to forge ahead, or more importantly, to "stay the course".
believe what you will, think what you want. i am unwilling to confront this issue any longer for fear that political status means lack of faith. take your shots, my skin is most likely thicker than you think.
take the time to read this interview with James Carroll. it is intriguing to say the least. i welcome your comments and if you like, will engage in a forum if requested.
peace and love to you all.
