War Sans Sex

Today is the fifth anniversary of the beginning of this war in Iraq. Quite a dubious commemoration.

The following quote is from the Perceval Press website.
"do NOT, absolutely NOT give up sex to end any war. life is death, death is life, war is not without sex. sex is not without war."

It got me thinking about war and sex. What would happen if politicians who started wars had to abstain from sex for the duration of the war? That would mean our President George W. Bush and Vice-President Dick Cheney would have had no sex for five years and counting. Granted, this might explain some aberrant behavior on their parts, but this is not the case so far as I know. I'm all for 'don't ask, don't tell' in this particular situation. There is such a thing as too much information.

It is a real possibility that if no sex for the President and Vice-President during a war was in effect this war would have been long over. Perhaps, knowing this consequence, there would have been no war at all. Imagine that, the power of sex stopping a war.

I want this war to end, but as an ordinary citizen, have no intention of giving up sex or any of my beloved vices. Tomorrow is the first day of Spring, Friday brings the full moon. Love, war and sex--seems quite natural.
