War Still Sucks
Just Ask the Returning Troops

And Then Your Kids Pay For It
January 15, 2005

A few stories related by Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh ( he broke the My Lai story in the sixties, and more recently Abu Ghraib) highlighted for me the things we don't hear about what's going on in Iraq. Things like his friend, an Air Force Colonel, who's job is to be "...an urban bombing planner, planning urban bombing, to make urban bombing be as unobtrusive as possible..." prior to this weekend's elections. Or like the mother who says of her son who's returned from Iraq: "I gave them a good boy. And they sent me back a murderer."

Check out the links below for some items you won't hear much about on Fox or CNN, or check out The Coming Wars: What the Pentagon can now do in Secret at the New Yorker, or Seymour Hersh: We've Been Taken Over by a Cult at DemocracyNow.Org
