I believe in nothing

It seems like everyone I know has a vehement opinion about the US & British military action against Iraq. Nobody is sitting on the fence for this one. You're either for or against, in a big way. Zero or ten. Maybe your outrage goes up to eleven.

I would like to quote Gordon Jackson when I say "I watch Al-Jazeera on satellite but turn the sound off and listen to NPR. I have no idea what the fuck is happening."

I would like to quote that one dude with the phone when I say "[the Iraqi people] better get fed. They better get totally chubby. I want a fuckin' five-mile-long buffet for those kids--and I want that buffet to be permanent."

I don't know what to think anymore. I've been bombarded with so many contrary opinions that nothing makes sense. How is it that everyone else is so sure? How can you tell the truth from the lies?
