Dropping Bombs on Other People

Laurence and Michael: Perhaps the people who get so energized against those of us who think that “peace” in our world  is to be encouraged, should be asked these questions: [1] Why are more American soldiers dying by suicide than in combat?  [2] Why does Ron Paul — the only candidate proposing an immediate end to these wars — receive more campaign contributions from active military people than do all the other candidates combined? Perhaps the men and women whose lives are so entangled in the insanity of the war system, and so close to its butchery, just aren’t as well-informed as the lounge-warriors who condemn the pursuit of peace! Such defenders of war remind me of the words of Charles Montague: “War hath no fury like a non-combatant.”
