Last night I finally composed myself and had guts to watch the HBO documentary called Baghdad E.R. I had to compose myself because I seriously don't fancy to see blood,dead bodies,injured people or people in such pain of a bullet or bomb blast.But I had no choice but to watch this disturbing reality life of what life means for the soldiers in Iraq,Afghanistan and elsewhere in the world. Through american soldiers I could see what Canadian men and women in uniforms in Afghanistan are going thru on daily basis.No wonder there was lots of resistance that this documentary should not be aired.I hate wars,I am a believer of the best way to win a war is by avoiding it.
As I am writting this piece today I can still visualize the images of crying soldiers(yes they were crying) from pains both physically and in their hearts. Most of them could not stop calling the war they are fighting in Iraq senseless,horrible and many more ugly names. Some of them were damning their decisions to join the forces not by being true believers in peace and harmony mixed with democracy and human rights but because they needed money to finish their houses mortgages or school loans. That sends echos that not every war is fought for made-to-believe reasons or the fabrications that our politicians makes. Do they tell ever tell the truth?
At the end of the documentary I was sweating with anger and troubling questions. Has W.Bush seen this documentary?What about Stephen Harper? But the most difficult question is how long will this go on?Will this war and the rest of the wars in the world ever end?.Hey try to see this documentary and tell me whether it worth it. You can check here about the cost of this war. If you want to have an idea of how many lives the world has lost click here .Of course this does not include the people who are real affected by the war..women,children and men of Iraq plus other coalition forces.
