1019 hrs here and I'm watching the news about the earthquake in Pakistan and India, also Iran. My God, there are thousands of souls lost. The News people are mentioning how maybe at least Bin Laden was in a cavein. Even if I thought it, I wouldn't say it on the news because of the innocents.

1847 here in Italy. Just got back from a huge lunch at restaurant: A relative became priest so it was a big thing, big celebration. Only thing that sucked: I was sitting next to this bunch of missionaries who kept talking about how bad the Americans are, how bad the trans-national corporations are, and it's all the Jews' fault, and this and that. Some nerve. I had never thought there could be people that were so much anti-jews. Specially part of the Church.

yeah its amazing how closed minded and stereotypical members of some religions can be.
If I am asked what we are fighting for, I can reply in two sentences. In the first place, to fulfil a solemn international obligation . . . an obligation of honor which no self-respecting man could possibly have repudiated. I say, secondly, we are fighting to vindicate the principle that small nationalities are not to be crushed in defiance of international good faith at the arbitrary will of a strong and overmastering Power.
