Ain’t Gonna Study War No More

“The bottom line is I don’t trust this president and his advisors. “

So stated California Democrat Rep. Pete Stark on the floor of the House recently. In a scathing, pull no punches response to the shrub’s continuing cries for war, (have you ever wondered why enron and related topics are no longer frontpage news?) Rep. Stark outlines the reasons why such a sea change of american policy, away from a No First Strike stance is wrong, and also highlights some of the costs of pursuing such a foolish endeavour.

“And what greatly saddens me at this point in our history is my fear that this entire spectacle has not been planned for the well-being of the world, but for the short-term political interest of our president.”
