George Bush’s favorite reason for the Iraq War is “fighting them there so we don’t have to fight them here.” I knew that was simplistic and misleading but had nothing to refute that until now. In today’s New York Times there is an article that is quite informative and alarming. Our “War on Terror” is actually producing more terror and for all of us. Follow this link to an informative article. Thanks to the decider-in-chief and the spineless congress we are spawning more terrorists. Write or call your representatives and ask them if they have a brain or a place to put one and how they respond to what’s being published in this regard. Ask them if they have thought of this.
Maybe we can do more to support the troops by de-funding rather than defending the war. Maybe a Department of Peace is a good thing. Maybe just maybe peace really is the way to end terrorism. Maybe Gandhi, King, Merton, Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dalai Lama, Buddha and Jesus are right.
