WDDIJ Reflection

WDDIJ Reflection

Bet you thought I was gone for good? Happy 2 year anniversary to Words Don’t Do it Justice. I came back for this special occasion just to share with you all some thoughts. It was a wild ride writing for WDDIJ, even if I wasn’t around the longest or anything – it gave me an outlet to express my ideas and opinions to an audience, something I had never really had before. It proved to me that I could actually go out there and put my thoughts into writing and that people would actually give a damn as to what Read more »

A Fond Farewell

A Fond Farewell

A Fond Farewell Well, this is the last you will hear from me. It might be for good, it might just be temporary, I don’t know yet. It’s been a privilege to be able to express the things that rattled around in my head. I’m grateful to Ruthless for giving me an audience and a medium where I could express my thoughts. Unfortunately, with my schedule soon to be packed with writing I’ll be pretty busy.  So, without further ado, I present to you my final ramblings. This place will get on just fine without me,k so, farewell all you Read more »

Sometimes being right sucks.

Sometimes being right sucks.

Sometimes being right sucks. That isn’t something you’ll hear many people say, but it’s true. Sometimes you look at things and you know how it’s going to play out, so you make a prediction. Sometimes it’s good to be right, other times it sucks. This is one of the times when being right sucks. See, nobody wins over me being right on this issue and it has done nothing but proven just how utterly screwed we all must be. I know what you must be saying “But Revanchist, what were you right about?”. Well, to be simple, everything I talked Read more »

War

War

War Si vis pacem, para bellum. An ancient saying which, for those of you unaware, translates to “If you want peace, prepare for war” and unfortunately, it seems that war is once again starting to rear its ugly head. To be frank, we’ve never really gotten a break from war. With the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq finally drawing to a close after so many years and so many deaths it seems that American’s are willing to once more send our troops unto the breach. How so? Well, conflict in Iraq is revving up with the addition of a Syrian Read more »

The Letter Series: Dear Propagandists

The Letter Series: Dear Propagandists

To those of you who create the narrative that encourages and promotes war and crimes against humanity; the likes of which we should never condone in so-called civilized society, I implore you to quiet your rantings. Usurpers The propaganda machine is running hot; every day there’s a new report or seemingly random newly discovered factoid that just has to be discussed right away. There are terrorist cells hiding in every Mosque and no Westernized nation is safe. All of the freedoms and liberties that we have sacrificed in favor of a false sense of security is precariously hanging off the proverbial shoulders of Read more »

Iraq Part II

Iraq Part II

   Iraq Revisited As you may or may not be presently aware, America has taken a sudden policy change in the past day regarding the situation in Iraq. Our original plan was one of simply allowing the local militias and the Iraqi Army to do what they could to organize and push ISIS back, while giving the Iraqi Government the chance to, well, form a functioning government as they have been long overdue in doing. It seemed like a good plan, it wasn’t America’s fight anymore after Iraq had specifically asked the United States to essentially depart the country. This Read more »

Lets Talk Iraq

Lets Talk Iraq

You might notice I dropped my usual header, well, I have a category now so it isn’t really necessary for me to throw it up there anymore. I’ve talked about Palestine in my last post because it is an issue somewhat close to me, considering one of my best friends who helped me through the hard times happens to be a Palestinian-American, and I have listened to him countless times talk of the problems and the struggles the Palestinian people face. Hamas is definitely not a good group of guys, but Palestinian’s themselves shouldn’t have to suffer unjustly because of Read more »
