    I wonder is there the slimmest of chance to see millions of exalted young people passionately marching for peace in Georgia It shouldn't be too much of an effort. All they have to do is brush the dust off from the "not in our name", "no blood for oil", "war is not the answer", etc placards, paste Vladimir Putins and Dmitri Medvedevs faces over Bushs or Blairs on the "worst ever", "mass murderer" and "real terrorist" placards and voila! ready to march for peace. Preferably in millions, preferably in Moscow, to ram the message through to Putin and Medvedev. I...

    This is a scattered editorial. Rich begins by puffing an Abu Ghraib film supposed to excite the masses. It doesn't sound interesting and, to Rich's credit, he gives up on this score. He then confesses his confusion and unhappiness and blames the American people for disinterest in his and the NYT's preoccupation with Iraq an alleged atrocities. "...This is not merely a showbiz phenomenon but a leading indicator of where our entire culture is right now. Its not just torture we want to avoid. Most Americans dont want to hear, see or feel anything about Iraq, whether they support the...

I carried a sign with a photo of a war-torn child from Iraq and an anti-war sign from Moveon.org. Local police told me I had a right to be in the crowd and close to the stage. Three Navy/Army men were in front of me. I told them I loved them and I support them 100 percent - just not this war based on lies. They thanked me for my gratitude and belief in democracy.

    The peace movement is a very important part of American life. Much like the labor movement, the racial justice movement, and the women's movement, the peace movement is comprised of an array of organizations and millions of supporters. It maintains a visible public presence through meetings, demonstrations, vigils, leaflets, letters to the editor, newspaper ads, art, music, lobbying, and occasional civil disobedience actions. In addition, it inspires the loyalty of prominent cultural figures, intellectuals, and politicians. And many of its key goalsfor example, ending the war in Iraq, fostering international cooperation, and securing nuclear disarmamenthave broad popular support. Why, then,...

    Remember when Congressman Charles Rangel introduced a proposal in 2003 to re-instate the draft? When it came to a vote, Rangel voted AGAINST his own draft bill. If you thought Rangel's draft proposal was nothing more than a cheap publicity stunt, you would not be wrong. Of course, Rangel was in the minority party back then. However, now that the Democrats are in the majority in Congress, Rangel has proposed the SAME cheap publicity stunt over the draft again only to be slapped down by Nancy Pelosi who publicly nixed the idea. Keep in mind that Charles Rangel is...

Anyway, I was perusing some websites regarding one of the hobbies I enjoy (Watching Japanese animation - anime.) when I stumbled upon a link to the following website: Voices for PeaceWhich is publicizing a war protest album which, judging from the list, seems entirely filled with songs from the Vietnam era: War Pigs Eve of Destruction War Again For What It's Worth Masters of War Sunday Bloody Sunday War, One Tin Soldier Blowin' in the Wind Fortunate Son Where...

    For more than a year, former Marine Staff Sgt. Jimmy Massey has been telling anybody who would listen about the atrocities that he and other Marines committed in Iraq. In scores of newspaper, magazine and broadcast stories, at a Canadian immigration hearing and in numerous speeches across the country, Massey told how he and other Marines recklessly, sometimes intentionally killed dozens of innocent Iraqi civilians. Among his claims: Marines fired on and killed peaceful Iraqi protesters. Americans shot a 4-year-old Iraqi girl in the head. Tractor-trailers were filled with the bodies of civilian men, women and children...
