Our Crazy World – Technology, Iraq and Hiv/AIDS - Essay Example

Our world today Is a crazy one, In many ways. It Is so different to what It used to be. The advancement of technology, coupled with such things as WIDTHS or terrorism and America’s retaliation (and the Iraq War), combines to form a mind boggling, and somewhat depressing environment for one to live in. With DVD’s and DVD players, Palpitations Is and g’s, and even ‘old fashioned’ things such as videos, cad’s, and computers, technology easily confuses the Innocent bystander. Then there is the bad side of technology (although some would argue that computers ND DVD’s are the bad side): chemical warfare, weapons of mass destruction and so on.

Why do people create such things? I suppose the answer is greed. As a perfect example we have Saddle Hussein. He kills and suppresses his own people presumably because of greed) and then openly ‘defies’ America (l say sarcastically). Then on the other hand there’s Bush. He’s not exactly evil (or is he? L but he is greedy and moronic. He announces that America is ‘goanna’ kill Saddle and free the Iraqi people, meanwhile he’s thinking that he has Iraq and it’s resources, and is one step closer to global domination.

There are rumors of his belonging to the Illuminate, a secret organization which ‘controls our thinking’ and Is aiming to take over the world. So, who does one support in the Iraq situation? Which incoherent miser? My answer to that is rather than side with anyone, one can either totally ignore it, or decide to side with peace. The wonderful thing is that, being neither an Iraqi nor an American (l am in fact South African), I am able to express my distaste for these two particular people without being shot, as Iraqis would have during the war, or possibly outcast as an American.

However, Americans would have no reason to ostracize me unless they actually like and support Bush, for I don’t dislike Americans, I dislike greedy and lying people who exploit a situation to their own good. Just look at the situation: big powerful Bush gives Iraq a whole bunch of weapons of mass destruction (to his own advantage) and then a few years later he complains that Iraq is a threat so he decides to play soldiers and take it all back again, killing a few people in the process. All that engagement about Bush probably makes me sound pro-Saddle, which I am happier if Saddle was killed rather than Bush.
