The Cost of Hubris

Aljazeera Exclusive

Look into the glazed eyes
of this dead Iraqi child
and clearly see
the cost of our blatant
act of hubris .

In attacking
a defenseless country
for purely selfish
reasons
we have morally
disintegrated .

Not just in the eyes of
the world but
more importantly
within ourselves.

He was in the mosque
at Fallujah
worshiping with
his parents when
the American
missile
hit .

Look at him
closely
Can you hear
his silent
cry of despair?

Can you feel
his utter
bewilderment
as the life force
was suddenly
sucked from
his small
body ?

Multiply him
by hundreds,
No, thousands
and you may
begin to
understand the
cost of our
hubris.

These are the
pictures the Bush
Administration
does not want
you to see.

Much like the 650 plus
dead American
soldiers
spirited into the
country at night
with no cameras
and no Government
officials to honor
them .

Much like the 4000
wounded soldiers
and over 10,000
non combat
casualties
tucked out
of sight .

No visits from
the four horseman
of hubris ~
Cheney
Bush
Rumsfeld
Wolfowitz

Nor their two
faithful ponies
right behind
them ~
Powell
Rice

Look at this child
closely
and let these
words
sink in .

Our self -
serving hubris
is responsible
for his
death.

The cost of
hubris is
moral
disintegration.

Are you willing
to pay that
price?

ONLY LOVE HEALS
