As the first post, I guess it would be appropriate to tell a bit about myself. I doubt anyone will care or even read this because it will more than likely get burried in the sea of the blogosphere. Anyway, I'm Jeremy Bol, living in Chesapeake, Virginia, USA. I'm 30 years old with a Korean wife and a 6 year old son. I'm currently working on my bachelors degree in internetworking technologies and work for the U.S. government doing network security work.
The title "American War Monger" is supposed to mean something about how Americans are stereotyped as evil destroyers of the world. This is where I'm supposed to say we're not all bad guys and go on and on about how I really love peace, and the war in Iraq is wrong on all sides. Well, that's not going to happen. I'm not saying peace is bad or that war is good. Both have their purpose. Rarely has anything changed in peace. Rarely has their been a war without death. There's the dilemma, you can LIVE in a horribly oppressed society, or you can DIE to make the world a better place. The big question is whether or not your cause is worth fighting and potentially diying for.
I'm not going to make this just a war blog or a peace blog. I'd like to try and go somewhere in the middle. I will try and stick to politics and media just because there's so much fodder out there. I'll probably stray from the topic when I feel there's something to say about a new invention or something funny, or weird, etc. None of this really matters though, because I'm just another voice in the crowd of American War Mongers.
