Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 5:17 am

A Republican Congressman has called for a blue-ribbon commission to study how the war is going and what we can do to find more success.  The direction the war and American opinion is running is contrary to the Military-Industrial Complex’s gospel, contrary to what Andrew Bacevich calls “Washington Rules.”

Admiral Mullen says the Wikileaks people have the blood of innocents on their hands.  But what if a Martian came down and looked around?  On whose hands would he see whose blood?  This is an excellent, if lengthy, Tom Englehardt article.

Things To Know About Afghanistan

David Swanson spells out six things about the Afghanistan war that war supporters should know.  They are six excellent reasons to bring the troops home, save lives, and make a start toward reducing war spending by one trillion dollars over the next ten years.  The vote in Congress to increase funding may come up this week.  Our strategy must be to delay that vote into September, because by then the push for it may go away.  Call your congressman at 202-224-3121 and tell him you don’t want more money going to the Afghanistan War.
