Mfer 123 Eyes Wide Open

Sign The Letter to Congress to end this war. AFSC Board Statement on Immediate Troop Withdrawal The Board of the American Friends Service Committee grieves at the ongoing and increasing deaths of Iraqis, Americans, and others in Iraq, including as many as 100,000 civilian deaths and many more maimed. We believe that an immediate end to hostilities is essential to stem the carnage. We are convinced that the presence of U.S. troops is a destabilizing force in the region and contributes to the increasing loss of life. We are anguished by the damage and lasting scars we are causing to another generation of American soldiers who have been asked to serve in another war in a distant place for questionable ends. Therefore, we urge the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops. This is a short video I did at the Eyes Wide Open from Columbus Ohio video EMAIL----VOTE----Subscribe in iTunes

Very moving video Zilla. However, the TokyoRose reading the names of the Iraqi's was annoying. Did she read the names of the dead Heros eventually?
I know this comment might make me sound like one of the RightWing BibleThumpers...which is no different than one of the Lefty Loonies...I am in fact, pretty much middle-of-the-political road..with a Libertarian leaning.

Mark baby you got it all wrong this was just a peace thang and the readings were all the dead regardless of Iraqi or American.
It was not a us and them thing it was not a hero or villian thing it was people are being killed thing.
Let me quote something from the site that might make more sense...
"Although a majority of Americans now believe this war is a tragic misadventure, the human cost of the Iraq War grows every day. How many more boots will be standing at silent attention before this war ends, before Iraqis and American soldiers are out of harm's way?

This traveling exhibit is a memorial to those who have fallen and a witness to our belief that no war can justify its human cost."

Peace

OK, I think I understand...the Iraqis and American soldiers are in harms way. And we need to leave the area, so that American Soldiers are out of harms way? How does that help the Iraqis out of "harms way"??? Or, did I read the quote wrong??....

"How many more boots will be standing at silent attention before this war ends, before Iraqis and American soldiers are out of harm's way?"

I need to know..what IS "harms way".....and I would prefer to kill it in the Sunni Triangle then let it infect the whole world.

How about summing it up with just "no war can justify its human cost"
I am confused over the Sunni triangle comment as most are Shiites in Iran and Iraq and the Saudis are something else?
There will be no winners in this war and I think it needs to end.

Good discussion but I think we are just going to have to agree to not agree but seeing anyone opinions are always good.

OK, I agree that WAR IS BAD. I wish/desire this world to understand that PEACE is to understand the inter-connections between all Life/Light/Love. However, the powers (and I did not put that word in Caps, and they need a stupid and clueless populus) desire something else.

I may be an asshole, but it seems that most of the ignorant fucks who think that they will be able to fuck 77 Virgins after they blow themselves up and kill the "others" come from the Sunni areas of "Iraq". Carpet Bomb the area and eliminate them before they come to eliminate YOU. Be aware, they "love" fags...UM, NOT!!!!!!

thanx 4 that clip, zilla. as long as the dying in iraq is experienced as a remote phenomenon, something ignorable, the american public will be difficult to rouse --as long as there is no draft and as long as it is mostly working class youth who sign up and die.

k

btw, in mobile, AL when we first started trying to organize the gay population there into a force of political resistance (late seventies) only the american friends service committee were willing 2 offer us a place to convene every week, bless their radically pacifist hearts.
