Eight Years Later

On Saturday, the U.S. began bombing Libya. In a sad coincidence, seemingly unnoticed by the mainstream media, the day also marked the 8th anniversary of the war in Iraq, where we continue to have nearly 50,000 troops deployed.

While the Obama Administration was committing our troops and tax dollars to yet another open-ended military engagement, Peace Action activists were taking action in Congress and in the streets.

Read on for some of the highlights, and check out our blog [ http://peaceblog.wordpress.com/ ] for even more up-to-date news and commentary.

Humbly for Peace,

Kevin M. Martin
Executive Director
Peace Action

[Duchess Note: Unnoticed? More like the corporate mainstream right wing media choose to deliberately IGNORE the fact, and continue to keep the majority of Americans in the dark or ignorant. The US government and military is still at war and occupying Iraq, Afghanistan, questionably in Pakistan, and now possibly Libya. And for what? Oil is one of the main reasons, but not the only reason. If we don't DEMAND change from Congress, Senate and the President in LARGE numbers, they won't do a darn thing. The majority of them are OWNED by corporations. And the US empire war machine will continue its domination for years to come. Do you want real change? Do you?!? Then take it to the streets in a peaceful, non-violent action. Thank you ... be well and be peace.]
