Damien on… “The Peace Process”
This term has been bandied about for DECADES – usually concerning the Arab-Israeli conflicts. But is it not a gigantic OXYMORON? (For those who ain’t good at English like what I am – that means a contradiction in terms).
I mean, the definition of the word “process” is a course of action that changes one condition into another. In this case, obviously – war into peace.
But despite those decades of jaw-jaw, NOTHING has changed AT ALL.
The centuries – nay MILLENNIA – of wars between these middle-eastern tribes carry on and will doubtless continue forever.
So why not be HONEST and call it The Peace INITIATIVE – then we KNOW it’ll be an utter waste of time…
