I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

We're Fool To Make War

"The whole purpose of Veterans for Peace for me is to try to prevent the next
War colors Memorial Day

I watched Baghdad ER on TV last night...
Been a while since I've watched any war movie as I find it too hard...but I'm glad I did, it re-affirmed the insanity of what this war (or any war) is all about.

Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms Lyrics
These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arm
Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms
There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones
Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms
