The Stoner Pundit

Choose you're own slogan for this site, because I'm too stoned to figure one out: Higher Discourse for Higher Minded People. cool. way cool. Last week's news reported to you tomorrow. I'm fairly combative for a pothead. I've found a friend in weed. Pothead slackers unite! Because being a pothead is way better for society than being a loser meth addict.

Cindy Sheehan

Sometimes I wonder if we should really be fighting this war. Perhaps a truly diplomatic effort would be the best way. At the end of the day there's no diplomatic way to deal with an Osama Bin Laden. We could do everything he asked and then he would change the rules as he has in the past. You just have to read his fatwas or read the full translations of his videos and audio tapes to know this.

Today I came across this little gem from the blog "A Little Bordumb Spot" , An Email on this Psycho Cindy Sheehan . Some people won't like it. I know that. It reminds me that we have to fight these enemies for there to be world peace. From 1980 to Sept 11 our policy was often that of disengagement with terrorists. We fled Beirut. We didn't really care that much about those who died in Kenya and Tanzania. It was over there, not over here. As long as they keep there shit over there, we won't do much of anything. September 11th changed that.

Arab regimes as a whole won't confront us directly. They fight war by proxy using terrorists. They fight a war from the shadows against us. If we attack an Arab country that we have a legitimate beef against like Iraq, all muslims must fight us. That's how they think. It's not what we want, but sometimes we have to do what we don't want to.

What we need to get at is the terrorism underground, but unfortunately it's just not that easy with various nations providing cover.

Cindy Sheehan may have a legitimate beef and I feel for her loss, but I think she's being used by the anti-war crowd.
