another mother against the war !

Above all, we need to demonstrate that we ourselves are abiding by international law, considering force only if absolutely necessary.

Attacking Iraq now, before these other actions are taken, would reduce, not enhance, our security. Unilateral U.S. action today would disrupt the war against al-Qaeda, supercharge anti-American sentiment in the Middle East and Europe, undercut international cooperation and shake up moderate Arab governments. Invading Iraq also entails considerable military risks and uncertainties.

Hawks in the Bush administration may be making deadly miscalculations on Iraq, says Gen. Anthony Zinni, Bush's Middle East envoy.

``We are about to do something that will ignite a fuse in this region that we will rue the day we ever started,'' retired Marine Gen. Anthony C. Zinni told the annual Fletcher Conference on National Security Strategy shortly after Wolfowitz's presentation.

Should the president decide to stay the war course, hopefully at least a few of our serving top-uniformed leaders – those who are now covertly leaking that war with Iraq will be an unparalleled disaster – will do what many Vietnam-era generals wish they would have done: stand tall and publicly tell the America people the truth about another bad war that could well lead to another died-in-vain black wall. Or even worse.
