Good News, Everyone!
Reuters: President Obama marks Memorial Day by promising no more war "unless it's absolutely necessary."
That would make me feel a lot better if every US president who's ever started a war didn't believe the war was "absolutely necessary," even if the private reasons were different than the public ones.
Time to revisit Clarence Jordan and his wonderful proposal that it be the old men who are sent off the make war in person, not the kids. Would tend to make war a tad more unplatable, dont you think?
