"This year Bush asked for only $200 million for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria, a sum equal to 1.5 days of spending on the US occupying forces in Iraq. The US annual contributions to fight malaria are less than the costs of one day's occupation, and as a result, 3 million Africans will die needlessly from that preventable and treatable disease."

Ok, I think I FINALLY came up with a question and possible title for my thesis. "What political alliances have formed be of, or in response to, the Jubilee 2000 movement to erase Africa's unpayable debt?" Does that sound like a viable research question?

Possible title:

"Rock Stars and Southern Senators: Jubilee 2000's Strange Bedfellows in the Fight to Drop Africa's Debt"

I don't have class today. My only class on T/TH is a yoga class, which my instructor so graciously cancelled today after the long holiday. He said he was 'at conference' - which all of us knows really means 'You're my only Tuesday class and I really don't feel like coming back from the beach a day early to show you all how to do a headstand'. Which, of course, I am completely in agreement with.

However, this leads to a lot of free time. And free time is dangerous. So, my suitemate and I have started sorting all of our friends in Hogwarts houses. It's Cap and Gown Order days here for today and tomorrow and Beaz and I have are convinced that we are going to call them 'robes' by accident and piss off the Josten's people. *lol* I am pretty sure that we are going to call them robes and ask if we can get a shiny new cauldron with the purchase of fine robes - wouldn't that be a wonderful sight. We'd confuse half of the girls there and absolutly tickle the others.

But that aside, this will probably not be of interest to anyone except for perhaps queserasarah, who by the way, should come down and visit me and get the whole Josten's Runs MC by Proxy speech from me, but what we have come up with so far.

I am a A Spectral Dragon!

Hey, I took the http://dragonhame.com online Inner Dragon quiz and found out I am a Spectral Dragon on the inside.

In the war between good and evil, a Spectral Dragon tends to walk the fine line of Neutrality....
When it comes to the powers of Chaos vs. those of Law and Order, your inner dragon walks a fine line between Law and Chaos....
As far as magical tendancies, Magical spells come as natural to the Spectral Dragon as breathe from it's body....
During combat situations, a true Spectral Dragon prefers to defeat opponents by the use of spells and other tactics....
The resurrected spirits of fallen dragon warriors, Spectral Dragons usually
find no allure in the ways of mortals or 'flesh-beings.' To this end most
never possess a single gold piece. Instead, they live their unlives by a
strict code of mental and metaphysical discipline. Their bodies are honed,
focused avatars of dragon gods long-dead. They are leaders and teachers who
prefer acolytes to be mages with an intense dedication to the betterment and
empowerment of one's own spirit. However, these creatures can be fierce in
combat; because of their nature, Spectral Dragons can change form at will,
and their undead state does not mean they have no physical influence.'
The magnificent blue-and-green flames of a Spectral Dragon are said to burn
hotter than the fires of the living. In physical appearance Spectrals are
often a shimmering grey-blue-white, much like a ghost; their common form
appears similar to that of a shade-dragon. Their eyes glow one of three
colors; the eyes of the honorably slain glow a bright green. The eyes of
the murdered glow blood-red. And the eyes of the condemned, those whose
greed or hatred destroyed their bodies, glow a bright violet.
This Dragons favorite elements are: are rose quartz, black roses, rain, funeral
pyres, and songs sung for the dead

France: Friend or Foe?
Rebecca Lee, Meredith Herald 3/26/2003

France has been involved in US foreign policy since before our young country’s inception. They gave us aid in the Revolutionary War, and later we returned the favor by helping liberate them from Hitler in WWII. They were one of our first “friends”.

And this is how friends treat each other?

From the very beginning, France has called for a prevention of war and the continuance of inspections. This is respectable; no one wants to jump to war, including the Bush Administration. They continued this stance after Bush and Secretary of State Powell spoke and presented evidence to the UN. They have taken the ‘anti-war’ stance so far as to threaten to veto any bill that comes to the Security Council if it gives any indication of ever saying that there could possibly be a reason to invade Iraq. In fact, the French rejected British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s suggestion of six disarmament tasks for Hussein to prevent war even before Iraq did. At the mention of anything Iraq related, France seems to say “no” without bothering to read the document set before them.

French President Jacques Chirac has been very vocal about the US and British decision to go ahead without UN, or more importantly French approval. The evidence that Powell presented was not enough to convince France of a threat and wanted to show this disapproval by flaunting its veto power. They called for more evidence – of course, people have said that the last time France called for more evidence, it came marching in under the Nazi flag.

The same thing has happened this time. On Sunday night, Coalition forces discovered a 100 acre chemical production facility in An Najaf, 90 miles south of Baghdad. This facility is suspected to be a production site for illegal chemicals weapons because of the heavy military presence inside and the electric fence outside. The UN inspectors have no record of this plant. If all is how it seems, the US will have evidence that Iraq possesses unaccounted for illegal chemical weapons and its government has been lying to the UN, just as is has for 12 years.

Does this change France’s opinion? No – at least at the writing of this. A friend would admit that they were wrong and rally to support their friend and ally and protect those who need protection, the Iraqi people. Instead, France employs insults and a superior attitude. In the end, France will join in at the last minute when success is immanent and demand recognition for their help in the victory, ala Charles de Gaulle in the liberation of France in WWII. Seems that France sounds more like a mooch than an ally.

Subject:Support Your Troops
Time:4:41 pm.
Mood: exhausted.

No matter how you feel about the legitmacy of this war, the Bush Administratino, remember that those men and women you see on TV are family members, friends, sons and daughters, fathers and mothers. Do not take your anger on the situation out on them now or when they come home. These are the people who voluntarily are willing to give up their lives for you. They do it for all of us who are here in the homeland and they do it with pride. Show the same pride and support our troops - if not for yourself, but for the little girl who holds up a sign that says 'Please Support My Daddy' at Ft. Brag, NC or for your friend who is waiting for her fiance to come home, or the couple down the street who's daughter just shipped out. Don't make yourself out to be an ass. You don't have to support the war, but support your troops... they're doing it for you.

"No Blood for Oil!"

God, I am so tired of that phrase. Protesters have it plastered on boards and chanting it. Now, sidenote, I am a full supporter of the American right to protest. You have everyright and I hope that's never taken away. But if you're going to protest, make sure you get your facts straight. The US DOES NOT get a terrible lot of oil from Iraq. In fact, the US's major oil suppliers are the North Sea, Russia, and Saudi Arabia coming in third. If we didn't get any Iraqi oil, we'd be just fine and dandy... we only get a little from them anyway. So suck it up... my friends are not going over there to die for America's right to oil. If you want to protest, pick a topic that has backing.

"War is hell, but that's not the half of it, because war is also mystery and terror and adventure and courage and discovery and holiness and pity and despair and longing and love. War is nasty; war is fun. War is thrilling; war is drudgery. War makes you a man; war makes you dead."

-- Tim O'Brien, "How to tell a True War Story"
