VERY REASONABLE ARGUMENTS
Endless war: on one side we have common sense and sensibility, on the other a trillion dollar cash cow with the best propaganda money can buy. In the short term money wins, in the long term everybody loses.
Natylie Baldwin's article makes a cogent argument against militarism. Unfortunately in order for a rational approach to foreign policy to take hold in the U.S., we as a nation have to take responsibility for vast and numerous acts of treason, torture, and crimes against humanity, for starters.
Rhetoric, even impassioned rhetoric, might make eyes roll, but probably not heads, unless we're very lucky.
"In war, truth is the first casualty."
