dire straits

posted 11/25/2003 5:41:30 PM by: timothy
the state of the world seems dire. why is it that we, as humans, feel that we need to be aggressive to one another? the united states, has alienated several other countries and i fear that peace is at stake. north korea is testing missles and is expected withing four to six months to possess five to eight nuclear payloads. our military is already in iraq, according to several news sources, destroying strategic targets (in the case of war). in my mind, the war is already in progress.

as i scan the news, i am shocked by the number of horrible incidents happening of late, almost a hundred deaths in the nightclub fire in rhode island, twenty-one people at a nightclub in chicago, and 133 deaths in a daegu subway, a city that i lived in, only a couple of years ago.

meanwhile in israel, some researchers have apparently managed to come up with a computer that can perform 330 trillion operations per second. read about it.
