It's one of those things I avoid thinking of because it scares the bejeezuz out of me...but really, where do you think all the millions of phones and pc's and electronics we just toss out end up? With all their toxic insides leaking out into the soil and water? The EU is going to try to make it safer but really, maybe we also need to stop falling for having to buy the latest pretty phone everytime...a duck is a duck is a duck...even if it has a few feathers more or less...
That's all I have to say...
"Saddam Hussein has vowed to go the gallows as a "martyr" ready and willing to sacrifice himself"...That was last week...and this morning, on the festival of sacrifice, they gave him what he wanted...Robert Fisk is disgusted at the idea that in the shadow of over 400,000 dead now, a criminal invasion, a country torn to shreds, Abu Ghraib and on and on... that "we are supposed to forget these terrible crimes as we applaud the swinging corpse of the dictator we created."...Human Rights Watch writes of Iraq's Shallow Justice and it's worth a read for its summary of how the trial was a mockery of justice.
The finger pointed at Saddam the criminal comes so many years late, so many lives too late, and yet just in time for no more files to be opened up on any of the people who made him who he was...the puppet is dead, the puppeteers are toasting to it. And what good is it all now for anyone in burning Iraq?
