5 years too many

It's midnight, so here's a preliminary anti-war post to commemorate the 5th anniversary, in keeping with the March 19th Iraq War Blogstorm.

I will be attending a peace & impeachment vigil at Jim Inhofe's office. Info here.

It's time to bring the troops home. Every dollar we spend, every soldier that dies, serves as a national black eye.

5 years is enough. Bring them home now.

Here's an interesting perspective on Jewish law as it relates to war. Notably:

From Deuteronomy 20:19 we derive the law that not only are we required to protect against reckless harm to human life in war, but we are even obligated not to willfully destroy the land and agriculture of our enemies, or anything necessary for the redevelopment of post-war civilian life.

  1. g-r-r-r-r-r-r-eat post!

    now over 300 posts in the blogswarm!

    [i am trying to read every one of
    the 'swarm's posts -- so i'll be
    brief here. . .]

    be sure to let jim inhofe know that
    for every one he sees with his eyes,
    today, there are thousands more,
    waiting their turn to vote. . .

    against the war!

    it will take all of us, probably at
    the ballot-box in november, to
    be sure this war ends. and we
    all know that means mccockroach
    can't be voted in -- so, work for EITHER
    barack or hillary -- but get us a true
    end the war president, inaugurated
    on january 20, 2009!
