War, what is it good for?

Michael Moore has an open letter to the president that is a worthy read. I’m still not sure why we are going to go invade Iraq.

[Note, war just started.]

Aaron Swartz has some good words.

Bill has also been blogging about the oil-war.

I tend to agree with Enjelani’s fence straddling. I want to believe there is some reason we are doing this.

MPT has also chimed in with some good thoughts.

Some good words about patriotism from former President Theodore Roosevelt, thanks Robyn.

From the BBC, steps to war.

From the words of the President this evening:

We have no ambition in Iraq, except to remove a threat and restore control of that country to its own people.

What exactly is the threat and when did the people of Iraq ask us to come bomb them? I wonder how we would feel if another country told us to disarm. We’d probably tell them to piss off too. I feel really sad about my country today…
