Ok this blog is seperated up; Half is my fashion updates and half is my political rant of the day.

todays post came :D

i recieved the following yummy goodies!

asos you got the love vest. Saw it on asos facebook daily finds. To be honest its a lot more sheer than i thought it would be, but its still nice. Also it works with both leggings and shorts. Which is handy. Linkage.£18.

and a couple of yummy o.p.i nail varnishes.
*black shatter, and the limited edition, not like the movies. I LOVE LOVE LOVE, not like the movies. the black shatter takes some getting used to, but it gives a gorgeous effect.

''An eye for an eye, leaves the whole world blind''- Gandhi.

'I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.'-M.L King

So i've decided as of today i am boycotting the news, newspapers and pretty muh all of organised society.

I'm going to go back and become my hermit in my bubble, where words such as justice and trial still mean somthing. In a world where democracy still exists where justice is handed out in a courtroom, in frount of a jury, rather than down the barrell of several guns. No matter what someone has done, no matter how many lives we have lost on each side, the war was meant to bring government and democracy to a country where oppression was high. Instead we have done what any govermentless society would have done. Shot first, covered up later. ''Osama and his household were unarmed'' States the white house. But that didn't stop them shooting every occupant of that house.

Also lets have noted the way pakistan was written into these articles, as if it would be a straticicly good idea to invade. We have heard the word Iraq in the same context. 10 years. And nothings been won. 10 years. So much blood shed, for what? Oil? Peace? Democracy? or what seems to be the new agenda. Retribution.

I for one, am angered by society's view on the whole thing. Big newspaper headlines, glorifying his death. I wonder how long it will be before we have to pay for this.

He is now just a maatyr for his own cause. And my fear is that this is exactly what he wanted all along.

but finally, where 'retribution' becomes 'justice', 'opposition' becomes 'resistance', 'civilian deaths' becomes 'collatoral damage' we are in a war of dangerous words, where everything is dressed down, but is oh so deadly. We need to understand that a lone man's death is matyrdom, and revenge. This war has always been about more than 9/11. The goverment does not spend 10 years fighting for the souls of 100 dead men. This is more deeper and more tactical. And i'm ashamed my country has anything to do with this.
