Standing on the edge of the world,
Unaligned. I try my best to see

What is the future in
What was, is and will be.

Trying my best, some future
for mankind to conceive.

Along the path we have taken
Among the hives and heaves

Have we found some unique
Materialistic or financial way

To heal the wounds and hurts
The scars will always stay

Tit for tat could be justified
As long as we were children

The price for this will be paid
For generations, by the children

Each generation of this
Egotistic, begotten mankind

Have, their own, Great War memorials
To the sliding back, degradation of Mankind

Reviewed by Tien Avielle 2/28/2003
This is timeless, sadly. I listened live to all the speeches by Mr. Bush, and Mr. Powell's presentations at the UN - I also obtained the text from these. My opinion was that it was a lot of repeated rhetoric and old documents (available on the web-proven and reported by CNN to be in large part plagerized) presented as "new evidence" from British Intelligence. With each new presentation, the US justification for war became less credible. If anyone is truly interested in knowing the rationale for my stand, I offer them the following url which addresses all the "issues" raised at the UN and has point by point referenced quotes from US agents and UN inspectors that almost completely contradict what the US White House resident has told us is an imminent threat to our security... (Interests). Inspections and high tech monitoring give Saddam no chance to rebuild a weapons arsenal - aren't inspections and monitoring a better way than war, which will only provoke increased retaliation on the American people?
