"Sicherheitspolitik" ist im Neusprech-Wörterbuch schon lange die maßgebliche Vokabel für militärische Interessenssicherung. Da, wie der Generalbundesanwalt im Januar 2006 gegenüber der "Kooperation für den Frieden" ausgeführt hat, unsere Verfassung lediglich die Vorbereitung von Angriffskriegen verbietet, nicht aber die Beteiligung an Angriffskriegen, sind vielleicht nicht einmal die ehedem noch von Franz Josef Jung (CDU) favorisierten Verfassungsänderungen nötig. Die nächste Bundeswehrreform dient dem weiteren Umbau zur weltweit agierenden Interventionsarmee. Schritt für Schritt werden wir in die neue Weltkriegsordnung geführt, die zugunsten der reichen Länder das Ungleichgewicht auf dem Globus aufrechterhalten soll.

Katherine Cathey had asked if she could sleep next to the body of her husband for one last time. Illuminated by the glow of her laptop, she is listening to songs that reminded her of her beloved. She listens if to connect again, somehow, through the ether, through memory. She lies between the hard reality of the shrouded casket and the glow of a virtual world. These are all that remain. She at least knows that. The rest of us sit, like passengers on a plane, unaware of how close we might be to the terrible losses wrought by this war. Or we look into the media portal, like looking out of the window of the plane, staring blankly at the suffering unfolding elsewhere. Like Katherine Cathey, we, too, need to connect.

Photographs by Todd Heisler/Rocky Mountain News. Michael Shaw wrote a fine post on Heisler’s photographs when the Pulitzer was awarded. John and I have written a number of posts on mourning in the US and Iraq, too many to cite here. We’re rather not repeat ourselves, but the war is not over. For some it will never be over. How many are in that category depends on the rest of us.
