"How many of you have children in this illegal and immoral war?"

That's what one brave American stood up and asked our secretary of state today as she asked congress to give us more money to perpetuate the bloodbath in Iraq. Here's the video.

the fucked up thing about it is, i'm fairly sure (without looking it up, i'm going off memory here) that the answer to that question is 2. 2 members of congress (both houses together) actually have children in the military. because of course we save THAT crappily-paying job for the uneducated and piss-poor (and more recently, also the criminal and the retarded...)

hey, you could still kill without kids in the military. i'm sure some of them have family working for, or heavily invested in a weapons/tech manufacturer out there.

its important for all people to stand up and say no to all this genocide. its just evil. killing unless its purely imminent danger/self-defense is not right. end of story.

anon - i'm pretty sure that the guy who was yelling this in the committee meeting had the same views you do. the point isn't to say, "hey! you guys should have kids in the military!" it's to point out the hypocrisy of sending american boys and girls into an unjust war from which thousands (over 15000) now are coming home seriously injured and without limbs.
