Thom Yorke On Middle-East Atrocities

With bombings and killing of innocent people still raging on, and showing no signs of ending, in the Middle-East, Thom Yorke has posted a a rather harrowing article on Dead Air Space. You can read it here, but it is not for the faint-hearted. If this is a war on terror, why are innocent children dying?. Tony Blair has sanctioned moves to help the USA transport their bombs to the Middle-East. He even allowed them to be kept safe in Prestwick airport too. It scares me to think of the power 'leaders' like Tony Blair and George Bush actually have, when they don't have one set of morals between them.

Yorke has since posted his own thoughts on Dead Air Space:

"(my personal opinion)

ive had enough of this

our government sitting on the fence with the US while world war 3 appears to be breaking out in Lebanon and Northern Israel.

we must throw Tony Blair our of office NOW.

he does not represent the views of the british people.

he does not represent the views of his foreign office and officials.

he does not even represent the views of those in his cabinet.

he cares far too much about his relationship with Bush, and Murdoch.

this man is not fit to be our prime minister.

its a nice sunny day. come on lets do it. you know it makes sense.

a vote of no confidence. or something. anything."

The term 'nail on the head' and the hitting of it comes to mind. I have posted a very apt song below.

are you ME?


I saw your post on the Thee More Shallows page, then followed to your blog and it's uncanny..

Boring Machines Disturbs Sleep is one of my all-time favourite tracks, I strain to hear what the words are he mumbles, I don't know how many times I've heard it, it's one of my most-listened to tracks on and as for TMS, FORGET IT, they own me, and then there's the Thom Yorke thing too..

Great link to the Dead Air Space post about the attrocities taking place in Lebanon, it's unbearable to read, it's so hard to know what to do.

Anyway --- just wanted to get that off my chest. Take it easy...
