I wish...

I wish Israel would act like a grown up country and stop killing Lebanese civilians, especially as a lot of the victims are children.
I also wish the UK and USA governments would stop trying to create a 1984 society with their 'war on terror' and all these suspiciously fake-looking terrorist attacks, engendering racial fear of the enemy within, and using all this to 'protect' their citizens with constant surveillance (biometrics identity cards, RFID tags, plundering of ISP and mobile telephone network data, etc., etc.) and legislation enabling them to silence, expel and detain people without evidence for great lengths of time.
