Iraq War Blues.

Here, ladies and gentlemen (and those of you who fit neither description), is my annual posting of the link to that gigantic thing that I wrote up when I got arrested five years ago, on the day that the war started.

The idea that we're five years, $600 billion, 3,989 dead US soldiers and over 100,000 Iraqi civilians* into this war, with no signs of stopping, is ... well, let's just say that "disheartening" barely cuts through the icing on the cake, if you know what I mean.

Holy Cow it's been five years
Ron, Lea and I went to the Detroit Protest but that was in February the day that we moved to Windsor, Ontario. (At Kennedy Square where his parents met thirty some years before protesting Vietnam). I think it was a blatent misuse of judiciary powers to force everyone to plead guilty when you had every flipping right to be there. I don't want to get in that...just thinking about the fact that y'all got arrested for exercising your first amendment right...one of the rights the troops are quote on quote dying for...okay I feel the BP going up....
