Whatever we do, and whoever we shoot at, it will not be in self defense according to international law. Of course, we're the United States, and far too often we administer our own rough justice despite all treaties and conventions. But we sure do scream when others violate these standards.
I'm a progressive but I'm not a sheep. For me, this is not a partisan issue.
So I'm not sure what your point is.
Recently we went to a music festival founded by Pete Seeger. Pete led the group in a song I haven't heard for a long time, "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" Pete said we need to sing it again, because we still haven't learned.
I was actually not talking to you. I know, or at least I think I know how you feel.
I just heard that the committee just voted yes to yet again get involved in the Middle East.
There sure are a lot of what if's out there.
For those who live across the pond. I am glad that you have leaders who listen. I guess we don't have. I will be checking my reps to see how they voted.
