The Iraq war: five years on

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

I don’t know what to say about this war that hasn’t been said before. I’ve been heartsick, ashamed, and angry for five years now.

By every measure, a majority of Americans realize that they were misled into the war, disapprove of the way it’s being fought, understand that it’s not “winnable,” and want to withdraw the troops. What kind of democracy makes obeying the will of its citizens on the most critical civic issue of the day politically unthinkable?

I’m going to talk to friends, show up on the streets, and call elected representatives today. What alternative do we have? Silence is consent.
